Re: Refrigerator Mafia - D1 - The Purge Begins

Post-posting edit: Yes, I guess I am effectively role-fishing in Lake Plytho. If you're a critical town power role, looks to me like you can own up at this point. Scum will then presumably kill you, but at least we might not waste the lynch on doing their dirty work for them.
