Re: Diablo Mafia - Day 2 (Bloody Morning)

I got curious as to why SirG might have turned up dead, given that he seemed to be thoroughly neutral on everyone's reads lists for the entirety of yesterday. I did a quick Ctrl-F for mentions of SirG through D1, and found that this confirmed my memories - the only dissenting opinion on SirG was tha...
