Okay, carry on.
I know things have been said about the cop checking HCL and others, but how will we know if they come up as town if none of us have any contact with the cop? I mean, unless the cop has contacted one of us.

Something has happened!
A disgruntled young redheaded man plowed through the stiff underbrush to the edge of the settlement toward a man cloaked in Jesuit priest robes. The priest tightened his cloak around his body against the chilly February air.
“Colonel Clark,” the priest murmured, bowing his head slightly. “It is good to see you again.”
Clark rubbed his frozen hands together. “And you, Father Gibault. We trekked eighteen days through miserable weather for this, so I hope you have good news. Have you managed to gain support from the locals?”
Gibault frowned. “Almost. They are wary of the British, and want them out of the country, but fear an open alliance with…” his mouth twisted in wry amusement, “the ‘Congress of the rebels’ will cause them a great deal of trouble with Governor Hamilton’s men if they don’t think this rebellion – pardon, revolution – will last much longer.”
Clark swore under his breath and winced at Gibault’s grimace. “Sorry, Father. I can’t hope to drive Hamilton back to Detroit without gunpowder and food. We wouldn’t have been successful in the Illinois if not for the help of the locals.”
“I am aware,” Gibault said grimly. “And I am working toward it. Incidentally, this news of an alliance between America and France – is it true?”
Clark nodded, rubbing a frozen hand through his matted hair. “It is. The French are sending military aid immediately to help our cause.”
Gibault glanced toward the quiet village and pursed his lips at the garrison. “That might be enough to gain the support you need. Give me another day and I will speak to the leaders. With French aid, this war may take a different turn.”
Clark nodded and clasped the priest’s hand. “Godspeed, Father.”
“And you, Colonel,” Gibault murmured as Clark trotted back to the woods.
Clark darted nimbly through the woods, avoiding snow and mud whenever possible to hide his tracks. His planned siege of Vincennes – and damn the British for renaming it Fort Sackville – would put an end to the British command there, if Gibault was successful in procuring the gunpowder and other supplies. He would have Governor Hamilton dragged back to Virginia in chains if he could; what a nice gift that would be for his good friend Governor Jefferson.
The slightest rustle behind him made him freeze. It wasn’t a Redcoat; he knew that – the Redcoats bumbled through the woods like gorillas – which meant-
His tomahawk was out of his belt and in his hand just in time to intercept the matching tomahawk coming at his head from behind. The Indian’s eyes widened slightly as Clark grinned deviously. “You’re not the only one who can use one of those.”
With swift movements despite the cold, Clark battled with the Indian for a few minutes, each masterfully swinging his tomahawk, until-
The Indian’s throat bubbled as Clark found an opening. As he watched the Indian die, he was unaware of a second one behind him.
Fun fact! George Rogers Clark was the older brother to the more famous William Clark (you know, the Clark of Lewis and Clark?).
Another fun fact! I wrote an award-winning paper on George Rogers Clark during my undergrad. He really died alone and in debt, paralyzed after a stroke and an accident where he fell in a fire. Also he was an alcoholic by the end of his life. Sad. : (
It is now Day 2.
IMPORTANT! This phase will actually be a lot longer, and will end Saturday afternoon. I had forgotten until signups started that I will be out of town with no internet from Thursday morning until Saturday afternoon. I hope this is not a major inconvenience to anyone. All day actions may be sent in, and if you get them and any PMs you need me to read in before tomorrow morning at 10 EDT (GMT-4) I will answer them. I will update as soon as I have internet again.
You may now vote, and all Day actions may now be used.
Random kill, much? ^^;
At least it wasn't cop or doctor. :/
Well thanks for letting me play Hitomi.
My multiple point of view Hunger Games Story
Winner of MLP Mafia, Simpsons Mafia, War Room Mafia 2, Pokemon Mafia: Kodomo Ne, Companions Quartet Mafia, LOST Mafia, Hunger Games Mafia, and Pokemon Ranger: Guardian Signs Mafia, Havendale 2 Mafia, Twilight Mafia, Supernatural Mafia, Magic of Gardonia Mafia, and Disgaea Mafia.
Host of Bloodshed in Blackthorn, Family Guy Mafia, Assassins Creed Revelations Mafia, and Fus Ro Mafia.
Aw we lost the tracker. That could be useful.
At lest Long day phases are better then long night phases.
I'm not sure we can assume that. It could be that Flame_ was informed of who the mafia were upon conversion but the mafia weren't informed of his alignment change: Traitor - MafiaWiki
One form of the traitor role has the traitor unaware who the mafia are, so it could be that neither Flame_ nor the mafia were aware of eachother.
Unfortunately, if either of the latter two situations (Flame_ only was aware or neither were aware) are the case, then it muddies all of our interpretations of the events of Day 1 so far :S
So yeah, I agree with others about holding off a bit on roleclaiming. Roleclaiming gets the ball rolling quicker for sure, but if we were to trust the wrong person, then it results in the town getting gutted from the inside.

I really like your fun facts you add during the update. They're very interesting!
What I found to be strange about you not giving a reason is that it just seems like you usually DO give a reason. Even if everyone else had already said what you were thinking, being a very active member in the mafia threads, it just seemed like you would gave at least a slight reason for the vote. But hey, I might just be thinking about it too hard.
First possibility - Flame defected but didn't have access to the QuickTopic
I doubt this one a lot because if anything that only would have made his role a bastard one; he could defect to the mafia side, only to learn that his winning condition was now much harder, since he had to avoid being lynched by the town and avoid attracting the mafia night kill. He would have been hardly anything more than a mafia-aligned independent, which is a terrible role to play. Again I'm using meta, but I don't think Hitomi would have added such a role to her game, due to the nature of the roles in her previous games.
Second possibility - Flame defected and didn't have access to the QuickTopic, but still knew of his scumbuddies' identities
If I had that role and upon conversion I would have learned who the mafia is without being given a QT, the very first thing I would have done would have been to send to everyone in the mafia a long PM explaining how and why I know of who they are, and if having access to their QT was impossible, to create a new one. If that possibility was the correct one, he still should be treated like a regular mafia because I'm sure I'm not the only one who would have contacted the mafia if I was in that situation, since I'd want to avoid being accidentally night killed.
That's why I think Flame gained access to the QT right from the beginning and that he was like any other mafia, so our analysis of day 1 could still work.
