    I think Yukari might have been hasty in her no lynch vote but there is sound reason. And automatically assuming she is Mafia because of it is a little quick and begs the question.

    I will freely admit as host in including the No Lynch option as a means to generate debate and discussion. I knew someone would advocate for it, and knew that would kickstart all kinds of accusations. I have to say, for Day One, this has been highly entertaining for me to watch and monitor!

    As for my own thoughts on No Lynch? Well, like Fynn, in the first game it was introduced, I thought it was a good idea and very nearly died for it. Having read up about it and the pros and cons, I'd still say I'm technically in favour of it, but I would only advocate it towards the end. There is merit to it: when the total number of living players is odd, it is mathematically advantageous to stay odd. And there is a slight advantage over lynching a Town.

    Honestly though, whether you like No Lynch or not depends on your temperment. As a cautious individual by nature, I'm pretty sympathetic to No Lynchers. Having said that, as much as I dislike aggressive posturing personally (random accusations, voting based on the theme e.g villain-voting), reactions to it can be interesting to analyse. I still dislike it, because I'm way too polite to just randomly point the finger and goad someone, but it does help in Day One to kickstart rebuttals and back-and-forths. Thankfully, there's usually enough upfront people I don't have to do it myself.

    Anyway, it'll be interesting to see what happens comes the Night.

    With 30 minutes to go, I don't expect Yukari to be saved. I guess we'll see how this all turns out.

    Although, that being said, when I last played the last hour was the most intense part.

    Yeah I don't know about the day one jump on people suggesting no lynch. Meta wise, town is almost always hit on day one. no-lynching by default would prolong the town's day count. But really, it depends on HOW the game is progressing. Sometimes it isn't useful at all because of how people act on day 1. I just don't think it's an automatic "mafia-tell".

    Aaaaand time's up.

    Btw, I was wondering, is it possible for the cop to be not the regular sane cop?

    I seriously spent too much time on this because I'm at work. Oops.

    Yeah, people focused too much on my single vote for no-lynch than anything else. My predictions were accurate. But maybe a little self-fulfilling.

    btw Formy according to your list, Aigis voted twice. In reality she retracted her vote for Akihiko.

    I feel you, bri. I don't know how I managed to escape that fate in Karifean's mafia. Maybe because there were fewer people, idk

    I'm not sure the problem was so much just voting no lynch as someone's gotta get voted for, you attracted a lot of attention and your reasoning not really convincing many. Sorry we murdered/let you get murdered you innocent TSOL you. Mob justice is a fickle bitch.
    You too can have a face like this.

    The problem was the knee-jerk reaction that no lynch must be Mafia. I also didn't know that would happen since first time playing with that rule.
