Ok. I know this is early in the day, but info hasn't been coming through this game, so I'm going to pounce on something I noticed...
Early, but here's my reasoning.
1. He's been gunning for me all game. Yes, I've been absent a bit, but with closing down ALL of our Eastern Operations, that is to be expected. I am a firm believer in not meta gaming, however, when it is done, one should measure one's actions against their previous actions, not others. My absence does not mean I am mafia, it means I am busy.
2. Swirly's play - by his own admission - has changed styles. Unusual for him to play this way, when he would normally take a back seat. He has been leading the charge on some things, and I think it's high time that we stop and look at what he has achieved. One dead mafia - on a night kill no less... Which brings me to point number three.
3. Read the below quote:
@sensual: I don't believe either of you are mafia atm. It's early days so I don't feel too strongly about it yet though
I admit your RC looks suss but I've seen weirder ones. Also, blind started the lynch on you (I think) and if you're not mafia then it's a rare thing for mafia to start a lynch on a townie this early in the game. And if you are mafia then it makes no sense that he is too, unless he's trying to set himself up with a solid alibi. Probably unlikely.
To me that screams out he's mafia. Of course he knows that Sensual wasn't mafia, as you know who your buddies are. And what better way to save your own skin than lynch one of your own - as he's suggested, but when the lynch failed to get through, night kill, and show the town that you were right on your suspicions? Almost gives you a free pass for the remainder of the game.
Of course - he could be a cop... But if he was, surely he would have stated as much by now to get the lynch on blind...
