Re: Alien Warfare Mafia (Day One)

Given the possibility of hidden voting mechanics, it's probably best nobody else vote for Sabrar at this point.

Re: Alien Warfare Mafia (Day One)

I'm not sure about Vicarin, but I do agree with him that Sabrar is unlikely to be town. I find it hard to believe that the proper mafia would not be warned about this trap in some way though, so maybe pro-town indy? Or neutral indy of some kind?
