Just my shoulders!
So, I said earlier in this phase that I was thinking about sharing something. If there's ever a good time to throw something out there, it's when it's quiet like it has been over the last few hours while we wait for others. I don't want this to derail the main events going on in the thread, but I want to say it anyway because it's important to me and potentially to the town as a whole. I am Deputy Allanson, Centralia Aligned Sweetheart
, though my real first name is Mary. My role PM makes me sound like the nicest girl in the world that doesn't see bad in people and I am an investigator. Alarm bells ringing right there for me when I read mmy PM, became super paranoid that I might be a naive cop and get only town results... making me more or less a vanilla townie with some misleading results and knowing that I get more aggressive as a game goes on.
I mention this now because if Arrows ends up getting lynched I will get to see if I'm right about myself, which will make me more excited to hopefully bring some more useful to the table. I have looked at Tha Black Phenom, Arrows and moon_lit_tears (in that order) over the three nights and so far everyone is town. Everyone is still alive too, so I have no means to confirm anything yet. If Arrows isn't town, I guess I know for sure. Or if things end up changing as a result of the mdylan situation I guess scum will be in no hurry to kill any of those listed above in order to fuel my paranoia. And I say that because it's exactly what I would do if I saw this in the thread. I've been picking fairly big name targets so far too... got to trust those I would feel could lead the town either early or late game as all of those names can. The presence of a cult does not make me happy about this either.
Here is my quick breadcrumb trail for my role... there were other minor hints but these are the key ones.
My first post of the game.... hinting, somewhat in character, that I'm doing something active and something where I can get a good result.

Gonna aim for a new personal best in this new era of wrestling... let's see if I can make it past Day 2 this time before an untimely demise!
Day 2, I think my first post of that phase.... a direct claim to my character. Also somewhat in character. I repeated the same name somewhere later in the game but I didn't note it down.

First, I'm not dead! If I survive this phase it's the longest I've survived a game in about 4 years.
Second, I'm surprised to see Outlaw dead. I just had a quick look at my co-mod notes from Arrows last game and I see he wasn't protected there either. As someone who has been a decent townie player at various points in the past and died early for it.... protectors, never assume someone will be safe. It's your job to protect Boss Daddy Outlaw
and anyone else you think is a good player.
Third, I have been suspicious of a cult from the start of the game. The 1990s part of the write up has lots of creepy Cthulu type imagery and capitalisation of words that just look suspicious. But I made it a point a while back to not bring up cults unless I think they are there... I've seen towns go hunting for them before when they didn't exist and it leads to a lot of mistrust, which is something I don't like to spread. That said... that section looks more cult-y than mason-y to me.
Fourth, if Outlaw is a Good Cop that implies a Bad Cop. I'm not going to say the bad cop would be scum for sure, but the write up makes them sound like they're going to be pretty hostile. Best case scenario... a cop gained the ability to vig people. And there are a lot of worst case scenarios...
Lastly, I've got nothing else to report in for now. Since I can't be around enough to ask many questions over the next few days I'm mostly going to be seeing what I can pick up. Definitely want to hear more from everyone though. Information and discussion are the keys to playing and winning mafia games.
Somewhere during day 3, I think. If anyone got this I'd be shocked, but I deliberately put my role in first on the list because I secretly only have one ability! And it's that one!

After that I mentioned that I actually had been leaving a breadcrumb trail so I stopped doing it.
There is a lot going on and I don't want this to become a distraction, but my name has come up enough that I feel that if I don't start being more open about what I feel is going on then I might become a distraction later on. Rather than put time into that, I feel like this is the route to go for me. And when someone inevitably comes in to say I'm creating a distraction to protect Arrows.... realise it would be in my interest to lynch him for my own knowledge... but that at the same time, if my result are actually correct that it would be bad for my win condition to lynch him. It's a tough spot to be in.
As for my take on Destiny... still waiting for an outright statement from him. I can understand why he might not do that, but I can't vote for Arrows in good conscience based on my result without knowing exactly what I'm voting on. And there's the whole Paws thing... all of which might be easy to work out if mdylan clears things up. I've provided the rescources in the thread, is up to him to use what he knows to get things moving along.
