Saying it here because I can't say it in the Dead thread where I want to:
Roy is convinced that the dolls are the same dolls that Crying Mantis uses to control people in MGS4, the dolls of Psycho Mantis and the Sorrow, which allow her to control the living and the dead. He believes that it will allow the Mafia to control the night actions of anyone who holds them.
This is a very well thought out idea, a nice connection to the game lore, and actually a really cool idea for a role for future games.
It's a shame that it's also completely and totally incorrect.
Voting is currently being held for "Best Neutral" for the year. I really want to give it to Coppa for his gambit here, but it would spoil the game. So when people come and see this, yes, Coppa is the best neutral. He would not have gotten caught if not for the medium, and he's still screwing over the mafia by his role claim.
That gives me some important information on how I'm handling replacements and the Dead/Spec threads. I'm glad it came up. Will be corrected for the main season.
Also, while I love the Medium role, I feel like there should be a rule that it can't be used in main season games. It would require fracturing the Main season spectator/dead threads, and I think most people are against that idea.
