Re: Secret Santa 2016 - A Very Aussie Christmas

Extremely busy day at work, some quick comments. I'm not sure if we should trust it, although it's likely to be from a town source (unless there are an excess of indies), I guess there's a possibility it's been tampered with. I think it's probably a good idea to kill us (both), but I'm not sure. Ver...

Hence why I asked about it, to see if investigative results could be trusted. Are you not, you know, reading everything?

Re: Secret Santa 2016 - A Very Aussie Christmas

My point is that lurkers get lynched. No one should lurk, but scum should be especially wary about it. Your statement came across as 'That's why I do not lurk as scum.' Also I don't understand your point about why scum should be especially wary not to lurk. For Town it is equally important not to g...

Re: Secret Santa 2016 - A Very Aussie Christmas

That's why you don't lurk as scum. Feels out of place, especially given the other lurkers (not to mention the lurkers in other games) not all of whom are/were scum. If those two powers went off, it could mean some of the investigative results might be a bit iffy. Trying to pre-emptively invalidate ...

Re: Secret Santa 2016 - A Very Aussie Christmas

Some analysis: - assume RoadieRich informs his team that he'll be unable to really participate in the game, so his team decides to bus him D1 to gain townie-points (with or without RR's permission). This means that SDK is scum and probably at least one of moody/matt. SDK tunnels on RR which fits the...
