Re: Secret Santa 2016 - D3 - Lunchtime!

@Gopher re why i targeted moody, I have elucidated this up thread I'm pretty sure - I basically got greedy and thought I could grab a whole bunch of good info at once if I could confirm moody's alignment - if moody is trusted then he is a safe mouth piece for DJ/mpolo. If I can get a confirmed town ...

Re: Secret Santa 2016 - D3 - Lunchtime!

Regarding jimbob lying: I put together my list based on the ossibilities around mpolo's claim: 1. Mpolo lied (implies possible liars {mpolo}) 2. Mpolo told the truth, Mpolo's targets were GoP and Bessie Assume 2. Neither GoP nor Bessie claimed results If GoP was the N1 target, then it's already know...

Firstly: regarding my lack of claim - it was unclear to me whether I caused moody's death or not, until GoP claimed his power. After that, assuming he was telling the truth, it made most sense that...

Re: Secret Santa 2016 - D3 - Lunchtime!

mpolo, if you see this, in which order were those players your targets?

Refardless of ordering, there's a liar in {jimbob, mpolo, GoP, bessie}, unless I'm very much mistaken.

Ninja'd by Sabrar: @GoP, follow-up question. If so, why not claim?
