After finishing this, I am tactically postponing releasing my other 2 investigations.
Investigating Adrian "The Hat"
This comes in THREE! parts. The first goes all the way back and has a lot of text, second is brief about last night, and for those with A.D.D. the third is short and has pictures!
To set the stage, before roles were assigned The Hat said "I now have a desk job so i should be able to participate on a better level", but in reality once the game started he didn't said very much, so there aren't all that many posts to go through and the few there are are very short.
There was a rapid lynch vote pushed against James Heald. At 7 out of 9, I questioned the lynch vote as being anything but solid
Seems solid enough vote: James Heald
Seems solid enough?? Seriously, I don't see it. I am 100% in favour of a lynch vote today, but honestly the case vs JH seems really flimsy, and it's only made worse (IMHO anyway) by the fact that Brooksey initiated it.
I had James flagged as a suspect early on for being too quiet, but his post when he finally made it is pretty typical of him. He often does fairly empty posts when town.
TheHat then threw in an 8th vote - saying it was going ahead whether the evidence was reasonable or not!
Vote: James Heald
At this point he's going to hang anyway. Reasonable evidence or no.

Shortly after which I was finally able to get it to pause long enough for us to find out the truth about his inventor ability (confirmed by Malignant of all people, but still confirmed). Note it was 8 out of 9 votes at this stage, and the fact I didn't vote against him is he only reason JH is still in the game.

Hat then without any justifying reason changed his vote to BW.
I bet the mafia aren't even involved. Any time i've been on the mafia side they've generally stayed quiet Day 1.
Just to get the ball rolling
Unvote: James Heald
So thats another vote for me with zero explanation
Blindwitness was lynched and flipped town.
Day 2 - The vote vs Malignant
Day 2's highlight was the vote against Malignant. The Hat stayed completely out of any discussion, joining the lynch with a 2 word "Vote: Malignant" post that raised suspicions immediately.
I'm most definitely town, but I don't see me successfully arguing a supposed cop investigation. So this day looks like another fail.
Interesting that Mass comes out with this like a bull at the gate without allowing more RCs or sharing of info. Might want to hold your horses there folks or it truly will be another day wasted.
Sure; Massaen could be lying, he could have faked the result just to see how you respond or he could even be Mafia. But Mafia don't win by doing one for one trades because they'd run out of players much quicker than Town.
I'd put money on Massaen telling the truth, because has a much more "straight-and-narrow" approach to the game than some people, not mentioning any names
Hat later joined the vote after Malignant's post, but 'forgot' to Role Call.
Just get out of the team meeting lads?
Oh right oops. I can RC now if people want?
He then 'forgot' to ask someone else to Role call.
Who;s left to RC ive lost track
Pssst, scroll up.
And later was still struggling to do so.
I was waiting to call the next RC but i need to make a list because i don't know who is who at this point
Was saved from trouble over this by Sensual Lettuce's even bigger stuff-up (rc in a different thread)
Did not vote vs Aza (who flipped mafia)
Was accused of popping on immediately after the night kills are announced, which I don't think is really conclusive in anyway but his reply was interesting in contrast to his extremely low post rate.
I don't know when the day is starting, how could i? What a wild leap of logic. Also i didn't realize posting was compulsory every time you looked at the topic. My new job enables me to look at the thread a lot more, but it doesn't make me any better at playing the game. Hence the looking and no posting. I'm not as good at dissecting posts as others.
'get it over with' lynch vote without a real reason.
Looks like he's hanging anyway
I came up for air! There's a lot to catch up on.
That's true. One of the highlights is we've found lynching people flying under the radar still successful in this modern day and age, netting us a mafia and a contract killer in a row. Just saying.
Which brings us to last night, when he was caught visiting me in the night.
Well, I tracked someone last night... And saw who they visited... Care to explain TheHat???
I'ts funny because i also tracked someone and saw who HE visited! So how should we handle the reveals?
Well i saw you- Matt-Shadowlord visit 2 people. Neither of which died.
I think he is actually telling the truth in this last one, and the power he used on me actually was Tracking . However whatever he says now, I think it's obvious that it is much more likely a 1xShot item than a Town Tracker, or there would have been a whole pile of results - we are 8 silent days in to the game.
In fact, while the usual assumption is this means he clamed tracker, he actually hasn't.
