Re: Stellaris Mafia (Lights Out) - D2 - Awakening

Out of those games, I'm pretty sure all but X-Men had an SK (as you say, X-Men was kind of weird, and also high powered). Going by the single observed kill and likelihood of a cult, along with town probably having weaker powers to offset the multilynch, I'd put the chance of multiple protective rol...
