Brasas, at least 80% of the lurker lynches I have observed or participated in ended in grief and a town flip because they're so damn easy to control.
True, but not unlike your qualifying game, if you don't resolve them early you're stuck with a POE down the stretch that's a bloody mess because it still has tmofer and speck in it.
Or, y'know, whatever the opposite of that is.
So does it have any strategic advantage? Hard to say. But even if they couldn't steer the voting, you're basically 75% chance going to hit town even purely randomly.
But personally from a gameplay perspective I'd rather wake up D4 with a group that was actually invested in playing than a room full of people who might breeze in just to say they'll post later once they've read and caught up.
(spoiler - they aren't actually going to do that)
Can't you see we're all here trying to be shitposting seventeenth-century morons?
Speak for yourself - I'm a shitposting seventeenth-century self-taught educated person.
I've not only managed to quote works that were actually available to me (Donne, Dunbar), but I've looked into the future and managed to quote works that won't be written til ages and ages hence (Pig Finn, Simon, Frost, and King).
