Re: Books necessary to catch references

On a more serious note, Shakespeare is quite important, just not in English but in Western culture as a whole. Not just idioms of language (?) like LaserGuy mentioned, but e.g. the whole idea that there's blood on my hands. That I must wash off. But it won't go off even if I wash and wash and wash ...

Re: seitluciffiD noitacinummoC - 05.0D :aifaM esreveR evilA

As others have said, aiming to catch out scum via claiming, as well as calling out who you saw as likely scum. That calling out of scum seems like it would have been too likely to backfire on you if you really were scum. It quite easily could have gone the other way, into a situation where tim or mp...

Looking for town tells I've found is much harder than finding scum tells. Obviously the aim is to vote for the towniest, while avoiding the scummiest.

Dark Loink lynch it is. Xeno will be easier to lynch when it doesn't take an extra vote to lynch him. I don't know how that might effect a tie, if he is scum they might be able to push it to a tie, and get a mislynch out of it.
