    No, but I was told you are.
    Which could be true, but feels wrong.
    And Taff is supposed to be evil as well.

    But if he is, the color is so freaking strange...

    I think the redacted part of Rogan's powered screwed with one of us, possibly both of us.

    That's what you get for trying to cheat, I suppose. Or you both are Evil.


    Until then, though: shall we kill Supagoof?

    Yeah. For what it is worth, I got my result immediately after night ended. Both times. So it's unlikely to be from another player, unless they got my question right away.

    ...hang on. I know your answer is at least 1/3 wrong, and I'm so freaking sure you're Trustworthy that I know mine is at least 1/3 wrong. And everybody figures BW was more suspect than Taff. You know your power has a redacted bit. What if the redacted bit is "your power returns only false answers"?

    Huh. I did think the Ultimate Question did seem too good to be true, but I was more expecting something along the lines of you guys getting an error message. I'm looking forward to seeing what that redacted part says after the game that can explain this result.

    Also, the wolves and I'm assuming the serial killer really wanted gac dead? What's that about?

    "AvatarVecna/Captain Cap/Supagoof/gac3/Book Wombat/Xihirli/bladescape/Taffamai

    All wolves in that group?"

    You received "Yes". CC, gac, Xi, and Blade are confirmed town. Taffamai and BW are both claiming Neutral. And I know I'm town. That would mean that either Supagoof is the sole remaining wolf, or the answer you got is wrong.

    If my theory is correct, scum knew the power doesn't produce true answers, so they weren't worried about us. They were more worried about the townie who can talk to confirmed townies.

    The likelihood of that possibility largely depends on what a "false seer" is.

    Well that did seem too OP to work.

    Supa I could believe. Rogan I could maybe believe before this, but the fact that he gave AV the power and it seemed to give similar results for both of them makes me doubt it. If wolf!Rogan really thought his power worked like that I can't imagine he'd actually give AV the right power name. AV I can't really see as a wolf, and Taffi can't be wolf or SK unless the "beaten to death" was a non-SK kill.

    I'm also very confused by the fact that they both didn't get killed or roleblocked. Which implies that somehow wolves knew it wouldn't work like that?

    BTW, bladescape, who did you aim at?
    I'm Chaotic Good! Ish!

    I mean, having a hidden drawback is fine, but always being wrong?
    It would be next to useless. I would have to learn this is the "problem" of the power first before I could get any real advantage...

    Even with wolves not shooting at AV or Rogan, I wouldn't have picked gac as the target. I guess they were probably trying to avoid baners.

    I was only aware of getting targeted with a kill the first time because it pinged my passive self-bane. I don't have a general power to detect kill attempts on my person.

    The dogs only have one kill, and coordination between them and the killer is unlikely, so even if everyone was unprotected and the dogs/killer can void, there never really was a guarantee they can get both of them.
