I feel like there's a decent chance either Sorian or Ty could get lynched. If we manage to get one of them lynched I think we can win and I think they're more likely to be lynched by both remaining alive to argue with each other. They both think the other's scum game is really good and will be more critical as time goes on. Who do you think the obvious pick to kill is from the outside looking in?
If I were town, I think the kill I would expect for N3 would either be StarSketch or kingkitty, because of their status as semi-confirmed town, and also because of the latter potentially having hinted at himself being a power role.
I'd probably be more suspicious of Sorian than I'm playing now. His continued survival wouldn't necessarily ring alarm bells because of his two commuter claims—so I wouldn't think scum would want to gamble with that unless they were sure which night actually pertains to him—but I think that would mean I'd have a perpetual feeling of unease regarding him.
I don't think anyone else would stand out to me in regards to being killed tonight.
I think that makes sense. I'm fine with King Kitty going I suppose. The only real benefit to Stan is he doesn't leave many opinions behind for anyone to follow up on, but then again we aren't basing the kill on opinions regardless.
If we dodge a lynch today I definitely think we need to kill OA. He's the strongest opponent to one of us. There will inevitably be people that go "OA died? Clearly Natiko is scum" but I think I can argue somewhat well enough that Ty or Sorian are experienced scum and that one of them would think to kill OA in hopes of getting me lynched since it's obvious someone active will be lynched D5. I think it's a better shot than leaving OA alive who has his sights on me over everyone I think.
I'm just going to go with can't name claim. It fits with can't role claim and can't FA claim, avoids any issue with claiming a name too. The only sticking point is it could be viewed as an odd FA if I'm vanilla. I don't want to have to claim a PR at all but if I do it'll be a one shot something. I won't go into details on a PR until D5 though if needed.
Yeah, I don't think we should force it. Going after OA makes sense for me, but don't vote for him if that's not what you think you'd be inclined to do. It's just be a cool bonus. Double lynch or not, we'd still need an extra day phase to end this.
Also, yes, if your FA is going to be that you can't name claim, that'll definitely imply you're a power role. Again, be careful with that. You could actually claim that you're a role blocker.
If you're lucky, people will just leave it at that when you've claimed the FA of not name claiming. But I think there's a very low likelihood of that, and instead people will want to know what your specific role attached to that name is, seeing how we're at the end game. If role blocker is too big a risk, you could possibly claim tracker, but I think anything you'd claim as would be risky. Traditionally, everyone with a power role has had theirs relevantly attached to their forbidden action, so yours could cause some suspicion since it's more nebulous. Also, we haven't seen any "one-shot" abilities in this game outside of those who had kill abilities, so I think people would think that something with that limitation would be pretty powerful (and have an appropriately balanced setback through the FA mechanic).
I could do more than one shot, but I think it needs to be something limited. If it's something I can have done every night it'll look bad that I have nothing to show for it. I won't reveal the PR part until D5 though so we do have a little time. Any ideas you can think of besides roleblock and tracker?
1. This late in the game, you'd have to be able to corroborate your claim with something, probably. Either info only we know of, or an explanation for something that happened earlier that people didn't find a conclusion for. Maybe taking advantage of the fact that the dead tell no tales.
2. You'd need to have a good reason as to why a helpful town role didn't claim earlier if you were related to gathering intel that could have helped them.
3. You'd potentially want to come up with some excuse as to how your FA of not being able to say your name is related to your ability.
How comes? Nin's dying for sure, and next day would be another day phase, regardless of whether OA got lynched or not as well. Only difference is that the game would end with our night kill, and not the mislynch.
We can always kill OA as this night's kill, too.
Also, town might have forgotten about the fact that you haven't even claimed an FA yet. Might not want to bring it up until you're actually forced to by someone mentioning it.
