Re: [TURBO] Wizardry Mafia - D5 - One ring to rule them all.

That was unexpected. I really thought there would be an extra novice claim, seeing how there were 2 of them and so we would have 3 claimed novices . . . :? I am a novice, by the way.

Two more roles that are scum that you didn't consider. Evil apprentice and wizard. Either would throw us off the track of amt, giving a town-like trust to amt. You could have just missed something.
