So I may have been drunk when I made that last post, but that doesn't mean you should completely ignore what I said. Especially when you're the person I've said I find suspicious, FAOT. I don't know what Tim's doing, but I certainly wouldn't put it past someone to invent a "Romeo" role wit...

FAOT wants the things to die. And by things I mean the people not on his team. However. I am unsure as to which team he is on. The furry woodland creature provides a plausible proffering, and yet I am thinking that the voting of things on which I am thinking the game is resting on without convincing...

I'm on the side of thinking that using the randomizer probably wasn't a good idea. There's a nontrivial chance of you dying by the end of D3 anyway. And you've only bought yourself one day: now, if you do survive that long, you need to use it D4 anyway. I'm still inclined to think AS is town though....
