and it's also dangerous, fyi, to base a case entirely on the fact that someone thinks they're 'cleared', even if they're not -- and, if you had actually read PROPERLY, human pretty much corrected himself when he realised the role was not the one he thought it was. i don't care about these different interpretations of him saying 'facepalm', because, jfc, if you actually look at the context, it's pretty obvious what he was talking about. i hope you'll excuse me saying so, but you've been displaying astounding amounts of ignorance during the game so far, and i don't believe that's very like you, in all honesty.
I just subbed in, though, and I don't usually sub. That may be the variable you're looking for to explain my, "ignorance," during this game, I haven't been following this game anywhere near as long as the rest of you, so it takes some time to get acclamated to a comparable degree to the rest of you.
Or maybe I'm playing ignorant because I'm Mafia and sounding misinformed so that my leads appear unreliable somehow benefits me. Was that what you were looking for?
Just for the record: voted for Human primarily so we didn't end up with a no lynch which aren't very good for us considering how many mislynches we've ended up with. Human's quick jumping upon an incorrect clear did seem quite scummy, and although Poyo's inactivity and lack of meaningful posts wasn't exactly pro-town, it doesn't exactly scream "scummy" to me.
Own your votes. If you think the case against someone is poor, don't vote for them - and if the case against someone is strong enough that it does merit your vote, don't apologize for it later - mislynches happen.
It gives the impression that you knew we would have a mislynch but voted anyway.
So you pushed for a lynch because you wanted to avoid a mislynch, and we ended up mislynching because of it? :I
I didn't think it was necessarily poor. Like I said, I did find his behavior scummy, I wanted a successful lynch and I didn't see much rationale for lynching Poyo. Of course the lynch wasn't successful but I provided my reasons for why I did it and it shouldn't be viewed as a "weak bandwagon" or anything.
You weren't the only one who voted for Human, though. It's the fact that you expected to be the suspect (guilty conscious?) that caught my attention.
I thought there would've been a phase update when I got back on. I guess my timing is off. n.n;
Going back to Buoy's post a few days ago about the secondary inheritor role, I do find it to be a stretch to have two players with ability to inherit a role and even more so a role like the doctor. I don't believe that such a role would exist at this point since almost all hidden abilities, that have been revealed at this point, have had some benefit to their alignment. A lot of people might think that this is bad meta or something but I jut find it really unlikely that such a role would exist especially a role that is essentially a detriment to the town. Unless I'm missing something?
Until then though I will FoS: KidBeano. Primarily due to the fact that I find the role suspicious to be honest.

You know, I don't know whether jda95 is mafia or not, but you guys are jumping on him for the same reason I was found suspicious, and look where that ended up. :P
I also find KidBeano suspicious, though, considering I really don't think the two of us could both inherit the same role.

If the setup is otherwise scum-sided, it wouldn't be that strange for the Host to include two backups to a Town PR for balance. Also, Meta: Feliciano and I had a spirited discussion about including duplicate roles as Hosts not too long ago.
In other words, I find the roleclaim a null-tell until there's a more substantial case to go alongside it.
As night fell, the citizens of Ponyville once again returned to their homes. Once again, a group of shadows met by the light of a single candle - this time ensuring that the curtains were securely closed.
“Their presence doesn’t change anything.” one of them declared. “They aren’t a threat to us. We’ve just got to keep going.”
“Right! I know just what to do!”
Another shadow nodded, and soon, they were down to four. “Who should we go after tonight?”
“We know what almost everypony is capable of.” the first shadow reasoned, pointing at a list on the table before them. All but a few names had been crossed out. “Putting all that information together, tonight’s target should be this pony.”
“Not this one?” another shadow asked, pointing at another name. “They’ve been dangerous from the start.”
“Leave that to me.” a third shadow responded. “I believe I can fix our little problem.”
“Can we get a move on? We’re wasting moonlight.”
The first shadow nodded, stashing the list in a secret compartment in the desk. As they emerged from the town, they began to hear the sounds from Sugarcube Corner - it was particularly lively tonight. With a flick of their mane, one of the shadows went off to join the party. The rest headed to a small building on the western side of town - the schoolhouse.
Lights were still lit inside. A single pony, looking especially tired, stood at the desk at the front of the room, a pencil clasped between her teeth. As she marked the papers before her, the lights suddenly buzzed, then flicked out. “Horse apples.” the pony sighed, grumbling under her breath as they set the pencil down. Now she’d have to go and check the fuse box. She grabbed a lantern sitting beside the desk, lit it, and stepped outside.
The night was particularly cold, and she shivered as she walked around to the back of the schoolhouse. Here, she lost sight of the rest of the town, and set the lantern down beside the portion of the wall where she knew the fusebox to be. A puff of icy wind caused her to shiver as the flame in her lantern sputtered, then went out.
Almost immediately, hooves battered her from all sides, causing her to yell in surprise. She whipped her head around, trying to see her assailant, but with the lantern extinguished, all she could see was a blur. Desperately, she ran, trying to get back to the safety of Ponyville’s main square, where she hoped that somepony from Sugarcube Corner would see her. She was blocked by another barrage of hooves, again and again from every direction, until she finally turned tail and fled towards the outskirts of town.
No school bells rung the next morning in Ponyville.
It is now Day 6. This phase will end at 10 p.m. Pacific time on Nov. 30th.
Because I received an ominous PM from the Host saying I had to.
