What do you think? Was the balancing OK like this? What could be tweaked for the next time?
And I have one more quesion for you: did you figure out your names? There was a hidden meaning to them. :-)
Sounds like it could have gone either way, since scum could have tried fake claiming. I don't think the self-target doctor power was too strong; the doctor couldn't protect two nights in a row, after all.
As I stated in the PM, that my name (Malyn Novo) might be along the lines of "New Guy" amused me. I did some more looking, and it looks like the names are taken, at least partly, from town locations. I think from the Chernobyl area, but I don't remember.
@Bookwyrn I did pass my role to dedoporno but was trying to avoid advertising it. When I told you your focus was too narrow I was hoping you would just let it go. I was trying to allow scum to claim a cop role if dedo had been NK'd and then I knew they would be lying (he was NK'd but no one claimed cop role). You are a very intelligent player, but you talk too much about roles and mechanics in the game. You usually sound like you are fishing for who has a role and what it is, and only scum need to know that so they know who to kill. It is nice it town knows roles, but that is not something you announce from the get go or it will either break the game or create more confusion.
I'm not always good at noticing subtle hints (and someone pointed out that I was missing things: yes, I was). My whole claim on you being scum was what I thought was a lie. I guess it was a miscommunication somewhere; I was trying to draw you out to figure out whether you were false claiming, since I'd just had a power too and I (thought I) had a good idea of how they passed.
Now I see why people avoid mechanics discussion (or most solid topics) early. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to leave any real ground for conversation until 2 or maybe 3 days have passed, which probably means 4-6 town are already dead.
