Sorry, only now I saw this message. I meant that if we assume (1) is what happened it means that one scum team was sure that Hunter was a vanilla while another was sure that Hunter was hacker/scum.
ZFR: Incidentally, this would mean 2 teams got two different reads on him. Looks to me like (2) happened.
Bookwyrm627: I'm not sure what you mean here.
Which I find unlikely.
But I believe you figured it out from my later post already.
This may be true in a normal mafia game. You know who all the townies are and you target the quietest one so you don't throw suspicions on you.
Bookwyrm627: Alternatively, one team wasn't certain enough to attempt a conversion, so they just murdered someone. Hunter was floating enough that his death wouldn't tell us much about who might have done it, which may be a reason if he was targeted for a kill.
But in this setup it is different. Now I know this is my first game, and I would love to hear some feedback on this from someone who's more experienced, but I think in this setup, such carefullness is not needed as much. Mafia would rather NK someone about whom they have reasonable suspicion that rival scum/hacker than killing a quiet vanilla townie, which would also deprive them of a potential convert.
Now I admit I was completely with all the drama towards the end, but if anyone taking part in it were scum (and one has to assume that at least one, possibly more, were), they would have been able to read more information from it, and NK one someone who they believe is scum or hacker.
No, I really think no scum team went for NK. And we should act as if there is a convert among us.
This is the pendant in me speaking, but technically your point (3) should actually be 2(d), since it falls under the broad heading that Hunter was scum.
Bookwyrm627: Also, I forgot one possibility: 2c) Hunter may have been scum that failed a conversion AND was targeted for a NK. Duplication on the kill, no conversion, but the mutant scum have a confirmation on someone not being vanilla.
You can further break it down into 2d(i) He failed a conversion while the other team did nothing, and 2d(ii) he was NKed while his team did nothing.
OK, I have some more insight and points that I had from Day 1 but didn't want to share because they touch upon possible scum strategies and who is/isn't mason. But with everyone shouting "stop discussing scum strategies (why? Note to self: check who was shouting 'stop giving scum strategies!' loudest) and "stop discussing masons" (OK, in this case I can there being a reasonable reason for that), I kept quiet.
I want to see how things pan out first.
