Just re-reading the mafia scum link:

In practice, the Jester almost always wins, which is an obvious balance concern. 12-players is probably not a favourable number to house three Mafia and a Jester for town.

Is it worth a GM call to determine the message non-PRs that get roleblocked get? Would they get a message?
Hamilton (and also Johnny) possibly faking lack of knowledge on how roleblock a work?

Oh, piss off. How many times have I been a PR?

I don’t think mafia would roleblock their kill target normally on night 1.They’re looking to maximize disruption of PRs, so I’m tempted to believe Snowy.
They might RB their NK target if they want to claim the RB themselves.
People always bring up this point but no one ever actually does it, because it’s somehow become more suspicious to be roleblocked. The only players in this game I could see pushing that line of play are probably you, ghug, and Vecna.
Chaqa seems much more inclined to correct bad assumptions this game. Much more present. Biases aside, it seems to come from a much more genuine place.

also having good vibes from Bozo. Not being stuck on a single mindset, but actually engaging more than one alley.

Something different about HB and johnny this game. Wouldnt surprise me one bit if that pairing contains the jester and a scum.

Still unsure about what ghug is sniffing.

I have food as near top town
Unless ghug is scum which I guess is possible but I don't really buy, his only real offense is being the decider for Bob and I still think that was a 3 town wagonset

I really liked his day 1 phase in his broad curiosity and later sharp attacks, wrong as they were

Food is too squeaky clean. He asks a lot of questions, and its a wonderful tool to get townread. Im having a bad gut feeling.

(probably influenced by the fact he usually garners suspicion as town but if memory serves is quite adept at garnering townreads as scum).

?
What does this mean? Is he our doctor? Would a doctor be so stupid to out themselves? I guess that is not stupid, because the doctor can heal themselves.
Since there is a role block, the doctor is not safe if revealed, because he can be roleblocked and killed when he is targeting himself with the doctor protection.
Thank you.

So, then snowy is telling Mafia he has a PR. But if they roleblocked him, they would already know this when the moderator tells them if they were successful in the roleblock. Right?

Once again, I am vanilla town. You can roleblock VTs, it just does nothing

This feels concocted to make me townread you. I'm flattered, but I've seen through your duplicity. Sorry.
Ah, you poor innocent lambs. It seems that you shall not be spared at all.

For you see, I have a power beyond your mere comprehension. A gift bestowed upon me by the lunacies of chance and the blessings of the heavens. I have no cause to fear your judgment nor anyone else's, for you see:

I cannot be mislynched. I am invincible.

It seems that this will be one of those games, where I am perennially scum read. I can already catch the scent of it in the air, spreading. Some of you will rage, weep, and tear at the frothing and unrelenting frustration of failing to convict me time and time again as you scream and beg at who you perceive to be your friends that it is so obvious, it must be snowy why won't you just vote him with me.

But at the end of the day, it shall be some other sucker hanging from the noose. I have been there. I have seen it all. Even when we correctly find scum hanging from the other end some will still argue that my death would have been more revealing - that the information gathered from my death would have revealed more about the truth of the game. And it shall not be disingenuous entreaty either, but true town believing with every ounce of their words this argument.

Invest in salt swaps, my friends. There is value to be gained.
I wish you would always write like this.

it is indeed nearly always custom for the gm to inform you of being roleblocked, regardless of whether it had an actual effect.

Typically a player is notified if he is roleblocked regardless of whether he is a PR.

but does the GM tell the mafia if their roleblock was successful? It would be like them having the cop function.
