Okay, abstaining is all well and good for the first few rounds, but are we going to just wait for the Spiders to come out and say "Oh hey, that's me, yep, subsuming your mans."
So, since keeping quiet seems to be the norm for this game, I will talk extensively about the leads I'll be working with.
So BDS is a known Discordian. Blight's advice to the cabal not add BDS seems sound and unlikely to be a ploy. I don't think it clears him, but I think it's sufficient to believe he's a citizen. Freeky did point out that as Roger's housemate, she's not likely to be able to hide something from him. My guess is either citizen or discordian for her. Jenne is away for the week, and her vote will be Abstain - if she were a Discordian or a Spider, that would mean her picks would be messed up when her turn came around, so I'm guessing citizen.
I am a citizen.
Following that, we have, as potentials:
Discordians: BDS, Freeky
Citizens: Myself, Jenne, Blight
Unknown: Luna, Requia, Villager, Khara
Villager is impossible to read, at this point, because she's absent. I would hazard a guess that nobody would make her a Discordian because of this. Her being a citizen would mean I'm wrong about Jenne, or Blight is playing extraorinarily deceptively. She's been a Spider before and her method of play doesn't change.
Luna, Requia, and Khara are my likely guesses for Spiders. We have to assume that since the Machine isn't created, the Spiders don't know who each other are. So it's not impossible for one to have voted for another without knowing they were on the same team. Spiders have a tendency to vote with the majority, so let's look for people whose votes have changed to reflect the popular opinion.
Oh, and before anyone pulls the whole "How do we know it's not EoC," let me just say that if you decide to vote me off, you are welcome to get subsumed one by one, because the only Discordian you know of still appears unwilling to act, and you can Abstain yourselves into a loss.
apparently the citizens need a villain.
