    Even I'm not really sold that HCL is Thomas Ditson. My issue with the evidence is that I just think it could have a different meaning that it may initially seem. That, and after seeing her role claim, I have a feeling that she IS going to stop the lynch. I don't think she's bluffing.

    It's also possible that she actually has a 1-shot lynch immunity and that she's disguising it as a slightly less typically anti-town role in the Governor, as it causes some confusion. They're essentially the same thing in this situation, and John Malcolm's Wikipedia page (more precisely, what Luminosity found earlier) fits almost perfectly the ability to escape a lynch.

    I get what you're saying, really. I mean, it does make sense. But something about it makes me uneasy. I'll change my vote at the moment, because I still think the votes aren't going to matter anyway, but I don't want to be responsible in case her avoiding a lynch causes the person with the next highest votes to get killed. I voted Arcturus, but I can't say I'm overly confident on that one either.


    UNVOTE: Arcturus

    Of course it could have a different meaning, but we need to talk about statistics here. If 99.99% of tar and featherings were done by patriots against the British, then I'm going to associate being tarred and feathered to being British regardless of whether or not there were a couple of exceptions. What you're talking about is known as anecdotal evidence, and it is a logical fallacy.
    That's nice.

    Of course, we also don't know who the informant is. Only Zenax knows that, and unless the informant was cop-checked, even he doesn't know that they are completely trustworthy (although he might, so I'm not saying that for certain). My point is that it probably would be an easy thing to frame someone with, tar and feathers. It requires no specifics, but subtly implies a mafia/British connection.

    Depends. If HCL flips town and her role PM doesn't mention anything about tarring and feathering, I'll have serious doubts about that informant, because it's true that they're not cleared. It would be a pretty stupid move to do as mafia, though, since we could just lynch them tomorrow if we found that they were lying.

    Thanks for being patient, guys! ^^ I'm glad to see that discussion was made with this long day phase. (And clearly people are learning! I like that.)



    The angry mob marched through the streets of a Virginian town, determined to find the individual they believed was assisting the British in persecuting Patriots. When they reached the steps of the large building they believed housed him, they came to an abrupt stop as they found him standing at the top of the steps, arms crossed defiantly.

    "We're here for you, you Tory sympathizer!" one man yelled.

    "I'm a Patriot," the man said calmly. "The very suggestion that I would assist the British in persecuting my countrymen is the worst insult you could offer me."

    A few men held up a tub full of a steaming black liquid, and another lifted a sack with feathers sticking out every which-way. "I say we tar him!"

    Cries of assent rippled through the mob.

    The man took a step down. "I do not tar and feather. I speak only what the people need to hear. What they choose to do with my words, however, be it tarring and feathering or what have you, is up to them."

    A few of the townspeople lowered their weapons and looked at each other.

    "Maybe... maybe he's right," one said uncertainly.

    "We'll let you go for now," said the man with the feathers, "but we'll keep an eye on you. We will not hesitate to return if we believe you were lying."

    The man's lips tightened as he gave a curt nod. "Again with the insult, but very well, do as you like." He turned and walked back up the steps into the building, leaving the town stumped.



    nothing fun to tell you this time...

    It is now Night 2. You may use night actions. The phase will be extended and will end at its normal time on Sunday, July 1 at 10pm EDT (GMT -4).

    I'm confused... The title says it's day 3, but the above post says it's night 2... Hmm...

    She really wasn't bluffing about avoiding the lynch, was she?
