Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 2 (Bloody Morning)

Let's get reactive: But right now the biggest issue I see is the jimbob/Znirk interaction. Why would a survivor have a falseclaim? And if Znirk was given Rogue as a falseclaim, why would he appear as Red Vex rather than Rogue in the conversation the mod supposedly messaged Znirk and jimbob about? If...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 2 (Bloody Morning)

IF both of you got exactly the same pm AND there was no other communication from the mod AND the reason for you getting blocked is because you spent the night talking THEN in my opinion it is safe to assume that jimbob got blocked as well. Oooohkay. The answers to those ifs is: yes, yes-and-no, and...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 2 (Bloody Morning)

[on Znirk and Jimbob's night 1 "conversation"] - both of them seem to be blocked by it (I assume this is a part of the effect that caused it, as it's unlikely that we have 2 Roleblockers/Jailers who happened to target both of them independently) As far as I can tell, Jimbob didn't say he ...

Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 2 (Bloody Morning)

Pepin had prepared a healing salve for someone named Madge last night. Since a literal salve would have to be prepared and delivered ahead of time, this wording suggests that the doc did protect Madge in spite of his getting killed on the same night. If Madge was also an NK target, this may explain...
