Re: [T] MoA Replay - Night 4 - 3 down, 13 to go

Hey everyone, I (unsurprisingly) lied to y'all about the amount of investigations we had left and their targets. Right now, I've got a decent idea of a couple of snitches (I was looking for snitches to convert, after all). It would be nice if we could get some. I hear you get 150 points. ...I'll ge...

Re: [T] MoA Replay - Night 3 - 2 down, 14 to go

If I draw the recruit, I no longer win with you. Thus, my action in drawing the recruit costs me a win. I've already addressed this. As town, we must promote talking lots and lots, even if it means we don't win individually. We want everyone to talk lots, so that the FBI don't know who to pick. Als...

Re: [T] MoA Replay - Night 2 - 1 down, 15 to go

Also, and this is where logic goes fuzzy in this game, if you start as Mafia and talk a lot, then, should you turn FBI, any change in behaviour should become apparent, making it more likely that you'll be caught. At the moment, since you're town, that's something you want - to help the town win. It'...

At this point, NaR is looking a hell of a lot more suspicious than Chandani.

In which case, again, it's quite likely that they'd be supporting a differing lynch. But I don't think that they'd rely on a no-lynch, especially considering BigNose is Mafia and they'd've known it. It's a better situation for them to kill off a Made Man than to no-lynch. Oh, and look, you voted for...

I agree that the Capos should investigate in private and PM Mav their results when they can. It makes proper sense, since Mav is confirmed Mafia.
