Alright I’m back (I hate phones…)
Anyways, if there has not been an evident pattern corresponding to a plan going on in this day phase, allow me to attempt to fill everyone in. What is basically occurring is that random and bob clearly know that they have been found out either through chance, observation, or investigation. Now, these two, alongside 404, even though he has not yet participated in this day phase, are attempting to use the public to take down the one person who may be truly capable of deducing the last two mafia members, since they were unable to do so when it was within their power (the night phase).
Think of this, as you will, as a game of chess with a non-conventional rule set. I don’t wish to stereotype here, but imagine that the white team has one queen with the other pieces being pawns or whatnot (please, don’t attempt to make this into a ‘are you saying that we are all easily manipulable’ or however it could be made, I’m here for reasoning, not fun-house reflections) and the other team has 6 stealth units. Now the queen has managed to use her powers in order to (hypothetically) uncover three of the units, so now that their identities are out, they are attempting to destroy the queen through public revolt to ensure the safety of the last three, even if it means that they will die due to their actions.
Besides, there has been evidence pointing to Bob and subsequently Random since his mass analysis on Day One. There are a few points to cover, so I shall take you all through them one by one:
-When analyzing Random’s actions at the beginning, he first starts by making a slight criticism of the speed involved in his decision but then pulls back and ends his comment by putting him in a redeeming light for starting the votes. If it is to be assumed that bob and random are both mafia, then it would seem as if he is attempting to make a cover for Random due to how he handled his words and actions.
-Bob, in my opinion, tried heavily to discredit Ann on his accusation of BSoD, who we all know is confirmed mafia, and even made some dark humor on his behalf (“I say your name provides us with some clear foreshadowing to your fate,…”) Since that we know the identities of both BSoD and Ann, we can assume that Bob was making an effort to turn the public on Ann since he had been coming too close to revealing a mafia member.
-Bob attempted to bring some suspicion to seal for his decision to vote on me instead of BSoD. Beforehand, this could mean that he and BSoD were working together as mafia, but if we are to assume that Bob is mafia, as will likely be revealed on this day phase, then we could possibly say with a high degree of certainty that seal is not mafia.
-Bob even took the time to imply that RPP and Ann were working together as mafia. Since that we now know that Ann is not mafia, it, in my opinion, should probably be assumed that RPP is not mafia as well, thus meaning that this whole fiasco occurring today is a wilds goose chase with drastic consequences.
In conclusion, take from this what you will, even try to change it in your favour, but keep in mind that there is so much more evidence on the two primary subjects of my message (Random and Bob) being mafia then there is on RPP, who has voluntarily risked his life in order to accuse the giants of this game. Therefore, perhaps we should be honouring this brave little ursine not by ruthlessly killing him off for his beliefs, but by following his guidance, if not at least for one turn, in order to see if what he says is indeed accurate.
PS: What is the rule with PM sharing in this game again? I understand that there has been controversy in the past, but I just want to make sure that it (the rule) is out there so that no one makes a fool of them-self in times of desperation.
