Re: MMM II - Day 1: The Murder and the Lynch-Mob

Crap. Given the way adnap 'hid' the indie claim, I was guessing her probability of being scum at around 2/3. We'll see at game end whether this was positive for town (i.e. whether her protection target is scum or not). So, our matt was indeed a doctor, and is now dead. Probably unsurprising; but do ...
