...so, what's going on here, then?
...a lot, as it happens. Oh goodie.
Now, let's see, first things first. I'm most certainly flavour-challenged, possessing only vague memories from reading past games here whilst trying to learn the trade. Most of the names on the list ring bells, but they are faint and distant ones that come not with details or quirks or much, to be honest, that could possibly be useful. The few I know are those that many others have already speculated on quite readily, so ho hum...
Right, next up, Az vs. b.i.o. There are a lot of ways at looking at this, depending on how much you want to assume is true; if everything is as they say it is, then presumably Az's cop was paranoid or insane. I doubt not for a minute that a one-shot cop is a possible reward; I think I have seen it offered before in games here. Whether or not the bastardry in this game would go so far as to make it paranoid, I dunno. b.i.o's idea that meta could have skewed the cop result is just bastardly enough to be possible, but it is a little left-field. One of them could be lying, in which case there are many parts of their statements that could be the lies. We could be looking at a lyncher-lynchee pair (the idea that Az is actually Az is crazy enough to be potentially true, IMO), or a bold scum move from either of the two.
(at this point I find a new development has cropped up whilst I was typing - namely, b.i.o's cop result)
I'm not so sure I'm happy with your claim now, b.i.o. A daycop power right out of the box is perhaps far-fetched even for a game of this standard and Az is quite right - it would have been much more useful had you investigated him. Why did you not?
I'm very tempted to follow Sungura's lead here. She's experience enough for her claim that she knows who Az is to have substance, and if that information has lead her to vote b.i.o, it must be a damned good fit, assumedly making Az trustworthy to that point it is clear that b.i.o is lying. Even then, a cop claim is not something to be taken lightly so I might hold off until I am entirely convinced either way...
The next curiousity is the flavour from AS that the person with the role of Sungura has the role list. Quite how detailed said list is (does it just say who is in the game or does it pair names to roles?) remains to be seen, but it is out there. I can't help but note that, since we know now for sure that Sungura is out there, we could probably track them down by getting everyone to make some pre-determined lie in a post (such as "2+2=6457" or "the sky is orange", for example), since it would not surprise me if the Sungura-player had a restriction whereby they could not tell a lie, but that is not a foolproof method, since a mafioso would merely have to refuse to say it and we'd be none-the-wiser as to who the real Sungura was. We might not even want to put a name to Sungura, for fear of their swift death if we do so, but it was just a thought.
Misnomer's claim of Tigerlion and militant atheist must presumably fit, since expert eyes have been cast over it and no holes have been picked in its believability. The problem, as far as I see it is that we have no guarantee as to your towniness - the one game I've seen with militant atheists was Whackabanana and in that they weren't exactly pro-town, if memory serves. I can't help but think we could do better in terms of finding a candidate to lynch; I would have thought lynching someone who was playing would net more information than the death of the mod. weiyaoli makes the point that lynching the mod does not have to happen now, if at all, and that I can agree to.
Um, have I got anything else? Oh, maybe; tastelikecoke's spoiler is nothing to be afraid of, those of you playing in Mafiaballs - it appears that the restriction on his shoulders is perhaps to post in spoilers, though not entirely, by the looks of it, but at least partially. If anyone knowledgeable in the possible roles could pick out just who tlc might be, since the restriction is so distinctive, then we might be able to get some info out of them - maybe identifying their restriction might net a similar award to when Az's was noted? (assuming he was telling the truth, of course...)
This is, er, no offense but you are a robot, aren't you?
That's just, um, beautiful, beautiful beautiful... just beautiful.
