What kind of information about other players do you guys record in your logs?
Here are the sorts of things I keep track of, in a format more or less like this:
- 2 - HUNTER wolfed n4
- 5 - occ imm
- 6 - ALCH confirmed by occ n2
- 7 - not prince
- 8 - KNIGHT cured n2
- 10 - NOBLE twinned d2
- 11 - not occ imm
I feel keeping track of players who cannot be Prince based on things they’ve said or done (or things other players have said or done about them) is very useful since it often helps me figure out who Prince is before he actually claims. And this is good info to have regardless of faction.
After watching SmoothTV I began erasing players from my logbook when they die, since it’s redundant clutter.
Often you will see the court arguing over things that should not be up for debate (because publicly-available information has already settled the matter) and this is because people aren’t keeping track of information as well as they could be.
Of course, at a certain point you run into diminishing returns by recording more info, but this is a balance that works for me.
