    I took a backup at the end of Day One, but nothing more recent.

    I guess whenever Scruff makes a new game thread we should just all restate our votes and then go from there?

    Yeah, that makes sense. I mean, we all remember the highlights right?

    I suppose so. At the very least I think we'll all have the gist of who we are suspicious of.

    I have a few posts saved in my cache. Posts 271 to 290.

    Excuse the formatting but this can be moved to a new thread when made. Didn't want to lose it

    I'd question why he would do that. The main finding is that Sharky is probably not Mafia, but there are subtler ways of trying to suggest Sharky is innocent. The other protection he made (to me, apparently) unfortunately tells us nothing.
    What I find peculiar is that Fynn earlier stated "the Doctor should definitely not reveal themselves." Slothy proceeds to reveal himself as the Doctor. Fynn has since posted twice, neither about Slothy being the Doctor.
    The absence of "oh my God, what have you done" or "but I said not to!" or "I said not to, but the info helps Slothy" (basically, any commentary about the reveal). Instead he points out my lack of posting again, despite the fact that the time period I described in my last post (bedtime to after work) is when I'm not active anyway, something that happened the previous Day as well.
    Like, how many times do I need to say I work?

    I'm very wary about voting Slothy though because if he turns out to actually be the Doctor, voting your own doctor is just embarrassing. He's definitely become a person of interest to me, though.
    Quote Originally Posted by Formalhaut

    I mean, claiming Vanilla is like claiming that I like breathing - everyone would say that. But for what it is worth, that is the truth. Don't worry, I'm not expecting anyone to just believe that straight up, but if it helps fill in people's diagrams and charts, why not.

    Also, like with Karifean, no one counterclaimed. And at this point, its kinda for late for that

I am very suspicious of the fact that Formy is trying to suggest my reveal put us in more danger when that's patently absurd at this point.

    As to why I would reveal when others said not to: again, we lynch correctly today or we almost certainly lose. There's no gain in holding back any information now and as a rule I dislike playing it safe when defeat is almost assured. We'll, honestly I hate playing it safe all of the time but especially when our demise is imminent.

    So we're pretty much on the same page

    Trying to suggest my reveal was dangerous when I know it puts us in no more danger, and sharing my info could actually reduce today's danger is suspicious as all hell. My but said Formy at the end of day 2 and I'm more convinced now.

The person I'm most likely to believe is Slothy, because as they both point out correctly - yes, there has been no counterclaim. Unless Squall is the doctor, in which point he probably couldn't be bothered to claim anything. Or even turn up.
    But then again, there's been no kills both nights, so I also doubt that Squall is the doctor, thus, Slothy's doctor roleclaim rings true. I still don't think it was really necessary to claim though.
    That leaves Fynn. He's either a Survivor looking to bandwagon a Town for an easy victory, or a Mafia who's using a Survivor roleclaim to pass off as a psuedo-Town/passively helpful member. More likely to be the former, if I'm honest. I'll repeat what I said in Day One: survivors cannot be trusted to remain on your side.
    Can I just take a moment to say that yeah, sure, sometimes the theories I suggest, the scenarios I entertain, could end up in later discussion become discounted. I'm willing to entertain the possibility that a few things I said was suspicious. Posting is always a risk. Posting your thoughts and opinions and theories on something is a greater risk.
    Personally, I'd find the people who didn't risk much to be more suspicious. The people who rocks up, agrees with someone else's opinion, leaves. Mafia don't need to risk much when they post. They only need to appear Town. That means they don't need to commit.
    Looking at the list, probably the person that springs to mind most is Laddy. I've looked at his posts. There's not a lot of substance here. In the posts, especially the later posts, there's no real sense of urgency, or danger. Even though we're at MyLo (well, LyLo really but who's being picky?). There's something off with the way Laddy is playing. It is far too casual, even taking into account the odd goofball moments.

    Forgot to add this that. The reason why I'm willing to believe one of them is because I don't both of them are Mafia. Two people working together would never be so obvious. Even if neither of them are Mafia, one of them in my opinion is working against Town.
    While I'm here, we all know Fynn and Slothy's verdict of me. Sharky is suspicious. Anyone else want to join in on this Scary-go-Round?

    I'm fine with picking up where we left off, or starting over.

    Does everyone want to keep going, or have Scruff "re-roll the characters" and play again? (I don't know mafia terms, some I'm just going to go with DnD slang until I pick it up.)

    I mean I remember what was going on. We can keep going as far as I'm concerned.

    Yeah I'm fine to continue. Also, I'm happy for Scruff to take my place in the signup thread so he can host a game that isn't interrupted by freak occurrences.

    Trust me, Mafia games usually go much better than they have been!

    Nah, I'm fine continuing. It's just fair to be flexible and open to what others might want. Especially Scruff, since he's the one running the show.

    Oh, I'm back from work and I've checked my cache, and I do have items that relate to the Game Thread. Should I save them to my laptop? I tried opening one of the cache files but it said I didn't have permission or what have you.

    Uh yeah...so the Game Thread got deleted.

    To be honest I don't really have much motivation to continue after the forum got rolled back with no warning whatsoever. I would have really liked an opportunity to backup the thread.

    I'm not really sure where to take things from here. There's a few ways we could go about it.

    1. We could move onto the next game (Fynn's) and call that Mafia XXIX.
    2. We could completely restart this game from scratch.
    3. We could start the game up from Day 3 again with a new thread, and everyone who has any of the game info can PM it to me.

    I'm really not a fan of option 3. The game thread is completely gone, and I'd like for there to be records kept of all of the games.

    Fair. It's your game after all.

    Fynn, what do you think?

    I'm fine with any option. Just letting you guys know that if we move straight into my game, we're still gonna need some time to set up. We need a whole sign-up thing and it'll use mafia accounts again so
