Re: Unlikely Superheroes (Day 1)

Would being mislynched later on make a difference to your chance of losing? That depends on a bunch of things. I suppose if I'm precommitted to be lynched on some day, then I could be free to help while focusing town powers on more useful targets, and my flip would prove myself. It is actually very...

Superheroes
Spoiler:
A two word summary of me is Towny-GF, and that's super nifty.
I appear to be scum to everyone except cops (GF) and the flip (Town)!

The tiebreaking/extra half-vote against me makes me even more secretly lynchable.

That seems backwards, but perhaps it is just the Mercator projection making the outer ones appear bigger.
