Conman claiming not-vanilla-town but not-power-town either. Hmm, not sure if this is incredibly stupid, or if it's so stupid that it's actually smart O_O. Something a jester would do but luckily we don't have that in this game. Anyways, I don't think a mafia would be make such a hazardous claim so i believe the claim.
Sorry for using the term miller so loosely, but what I was saying was that if someone claimed they got a bribery then we would never use investigations on them and have to judge them based on their actions, just like a miller. And also like a miller they would be automatically a bit suspicious but it would be best for them to claim to help town as a whole anyway. If we had two claimed bribery holders then we could be confident the rest of our investigations were reliable which would be a huge advantage for a couple of our useful powers.
Fair enough - I hadn't actually thought about that. I suppose at the end of the day it's up to the people with the bribery role to decide upon the merits of revealing. Also there is nothing preventing a mafia from falsely claiming they have the bribery role just so they could avoid being investigated... seems like a gamble but I've seen enough crazy stuff happening not to completely reject the possibility.
I'm really trying to understand silknor, but every time I read his post I just see "blah blah" :/ If he was scum it would be a clever tactic. Or maybe I'm just being retarded -_-
Now to address that one liner that so many of you picked up and deemed 'weird' - really I've been like this is every single game, and will be like this in future games as well. Sorry if that unsettles you.
