    @Soulmaster I'd definitely like to hear from you before the deadline, for obvious reasons.

    Fair enough. I can and can't understand your reason for voting me. While not lynching today will make it harder won't lynching a townie not be any better? And you should know that I don't really like lynching without a good reason.

    I can't and can't understand what this means.

    If we're lynching one, let us know.

    And you should know that I don't really like lynching without a good reason.

    Conclusion: No Lynching is not really an option today, and won't be at any point in the game barring a successful Doctor protection.

    Despite Krushchev's seemingly impossible deadline, Korolev and his engineers manage to launch another satellite into orbit on November 3, 1957. This satellite contained the dog Laika, who would be used to test the conditions of space on a living animal. Korolev wasn't beating around the bush with his intentions; he wanted to send humans to space, and he wanted to do it soon.

    In The West, the Americans struggled to catch up with the Soviets, who now had sent two satellites into orbit to their zero. Project Vanguard was rushed into action, which resulted in a failure on the launch pad during their launch attempt on December 6, which was captured on live television. This failure prompted the Soviet ambassador to the UN to jokingly offer aide to developing countries to the United States.

    Fortunately for the Americans, Von Braun and his team had their backs. On January 31, 1958, the Explorer 1 satellite was successfully launched into orbit using a variant of the Redstone rocket called the Juno 1. Although it was the third satellite in orbit, it returned the most valuable scientific data, leading to the discovery of the Van Allen radiation belt. On July 29 of that year, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was formed, replacing its less focused predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics.

    Now that both sides have demonstrated that they can send a satellite into space, it was time for the next phase of the space race: human space flight...





    It is now Night 1. The thread will be locked until the phase ends at 11:00 PM EST on January 26.
    That's nice.

    Nope, I'm not wrong this time. Soulmaster only received 4 votes, a majority would have been 5. Now stop posting, you're not allowed to post during the night phase.
    That's nice.

    In the mid 1950s, the United States Air Force designed a program called Man In Space Soonest in order to try to beat the Russians at sending a human to outer space. with the creation of NASA in July 1958, this program was replaced with Project Mercury. Seven test pilots were chosen to be the first humans in space, and were known as the Mercury Seven. Among them were famous astronauts Gus Grissom, Alan Shepherd and John Glenn.

    The Mercury Program initially planned to use another variation of Von Braun's Redstone rocket to launch a human into space. While the Mercury Redstone launches would send the first Americans into space, the rocket was not powerful enough to put that kind of weight into Earth orbit. For that task, the Atlas intercontinental ballistic missile would have to be used. Unfortunately for the Americans, the nuclear warhead that the Atlas was designed to carry was much lighter than the Soviets'. For this reason, the Atlas was not as robust as Korolev's R-7 and therefore required a lot of work before it was ready for the Mercury program. The Americans had an up hill battle ahead of them if they wanted to catch up to the Soviets.

    In the East, the Soviets were also looking to manned space flight. In 1960, twenty Soviet Air Force pilots were chosen for training as cosmonauts. From these twenty, six were chosen to be the first humans in space. These men were known as the Sochi Six, and among them were famous cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Alexei Leonov. In order to get them into space, Korolev began work on the Vostok program. Yet another version of his R-7 rocket was planned to launch the Vostok spacecraft into orbit.



    Soviet rocket scientist Vladimir Chelomei had been one of Korolev's internal competitors as a ballistic missile designer. Though Korolev had gained much prestige within the Soviet rocket community for his achievements in space, Chelomei's UR-100 rocket was much more successful as a ballistic missile.

    It was a cold morning at Baikonur Cosmodrome when Chelomei was personally evaluating a UR-100 test flight. Tragically, a leak in a fuel line caused a massive explosion on the launch pad at takeoff. Those who were not killed by the initial blast instead succumbed to the toxic fumes released by the explosion. Chelomei was one of the victims. He never got to see the end of his new UR-500 project.





    It is now Day 2. You may vote on who you want to lynch. There are 8 players, therefore 5 votes are required for a majority. This phase ends on January 29 at 11:00 PM EST if a majority is not reached.
    That's nice.

    That was pretty unexpected. I thought mafiyas would get rid of potential dangerous townies as fast as possible?

    @twinArmageddons
    @Phoenicks

    You did not have an active vote placed at the deadline.

    1.) Why did you not hammer Soulmaster?

    2.) Why did you not present an alternative wagon?

    Three things about this post:

    1. Neon took offense to it, which is what initially brought my attention to it. You aren't a rude person, so I'm sure you didn't mean to offend him, but it leads me to ask why you made this observation.

    2. You appear to be preparing to use the nightkill as evidence to justify lynching pro-town players.

    3. The phrasing seems overly cautious. The word "potential" feels awkward, as though it was added as an afterthought.

    Vote: Dark Blueberry

    For now.

    For now.
    Dangerous Townies = Townies that are a threat to Mafiyas = Townies with good scum-reading = Townies who had shown some good 'reads'/analysis on the previous Day phase(s), and made the mafia feel that they need to get rid of that player as soon as possible.

    I'd get rid of townies who do a lot of analysis in the main thread if I were mafia - and we can see that there are certain players who have been getting reasonable analysis done. Imo, they would be on my priority nightkill list, and be gone by at least Night 3 to ensure the townies do not have any good 'readers' left. So how do we know who's a good 'reader'? By looking at the main thread since private communications are not allowed. Even if one IS a very good player, if the number of posts are small, there is a limit to know how much of a threat that person might be. We had only gotten through Day 1, and Neon didn't post much anything - therefore, was not a threat to the mafia, yet. That was why his death was unexpected - to me, at least. Of course, those who had played with Neon in the past might know how well he 'reads', and targeted him right off the bat. But past games are past games - I'm only using the current game situation to apply to my theory.
