What are our feelings on Satanic Saint and his 'let me investigate' talk? There's just so many options for what it could mean, I'm not sure if he has played before but...
1: Has no powers and was just trying to RP, didn't realise the implications that the words 'I'll investigate' have. 2: Is actually the cop and totally fucked up. 3: Has a reason to want to be targeted at night for whatever reason - be that by a Doctor/Jailer/Mafia/Whatever 4: Has nothing to do with a cop what so ever and just said that as he knew it gets us thinking.
Squidyj was suggesting multiple people as potential mafia, none of whom were us, so killing him could be good.
Christina Mackenzie had some votes from Timeaisis, Dusk Soldier, and Blargonaut that kinda went nowhere, so s/he might make a decent target
It's a toss up between being rid of a good player early or an inactive player that provides no data. With that in mind going for squidy now could be advantageous. As you say he hasn't really mentioned us at all.
Does GAF usually fall for "maf killed him to keep him quiet!" or nah?
If nah, it might be a strat worth pursuing in order to spin it as "that's just the mafia deflecting from the REAL targets"
I don't think its automatically assumed they were on to something but from my experience players will certainly go back and look at their posts just in case there is a reason they were killed. Going for a more prolific poster could potentially tie them up for longer as there will be lots to wade through. Going for a near inactive tends won't get us that.
