to keep things nice and clean.
Generalz: I've been over why he is scum. The reveals between him and Sabrar concerning night activity around the deceased doctor would be hard to explain otherwise in the order that they happened, unless he and Sabrar are teamed up. That possibility seems unlikely because of their (particularly Sabrar's) behaviour before their claims on day 2.
Gopher, Mpolo, Moody: There is something mildly dodgy / hedge-y about Mpolo's and Moody's claims: they both left themselves an out for not delivering any more results (Cop can self-defend instead of copping, and mason has a limited pool of targets). But a scumteam exposing itself that way makes no sense when I am fairly confident we do have a cop (I don't think it's significant that according to flavour the cops only arrived when it was all over), and also, Mpolo claimed that cop:he didn't need his target to accept an anonymous note before watcher:Sabrar confirmed the same thing about another investigation role (he had already said he can't send notes, but only claimed watcher after Mpolo talked about no notes). Mpolo and Moody being anything other than the claimed mason townies would mean they were gambling on throwing their teammate Gopher under the bus (with the alternative of getting killed themselves but making Gopher look better), and Sabrar being in league with them as well. The early unprovoked scum cop claim was unlikely to begin with, but a scumteam of 4 definitely sounds like too much. No, Mpolo is the cop, and thus Moody is mason and town, and Gopher is Mafia. Incidentally, thanks and congratulations to Moody for your N1 target choice (and sorry for confusing masons with cult earlier in the game).
Sabrar: I find him very hard to read, but as mentioned in the discussion of Generalz and Gopher/Mpolo/Moody I am fairly confident he is an investigator and thus most likely town (and not indie as I first read him on day 1).
Madge: Her claimed role (choice between guaranteed survival and ability to win) in an oblique way isn't a million miles from mine, so I'm perhaps more open than some players to accepting her claim. Still, it's very odd that the sudden invulnerability only arrived during an unplanned second deadline extension, and her current game of Target Meeee! with Generalz is something I don't understand. Neutral with mild scum-vibes - Jester has been brought up and would kind of fit my impression of her behaviour, but then what was her message-passing power about?
Jimbob: Impressionistically, he mainly does setup speculation and probabilities. A decent amount of material, and quite agree-with-able, though some of it feels a bit obvious. Reads unchanged to me on the whole: neutral, but more town than not.
Carlington: Pity about the computer trouble, not much material there. He claims successful targeting (Dimochka), and neither of them seems to have suffered any ill effects from that. Insufficient data, but no immediate cause for suspicion.
Dimochka: Not much material either, has dropped the roleplaying (maybe both due to not enough time for the game?) Mainly one claim (surprisingly one-shot power involving a message) and a big reads post. Odd phrasing about generalz potentially being "mafia and lying for some reason" ... I would think a mafioso's reasons for lying are quite clear??? He might be unexpectedly busy (unannounced though), or might be trying to hide in plain sight. Remains on the neutral-scum border for me.

This pings me in a typical 'Look at me, I'm Town because I'm doing the things that townies should do' kind of way.
It was meant as more of a "don't hammer yet" nudge. I'm doing reads chiefly because I haven't yet done anything of the sort on Day 2, and since I like people to commit to opinions, I kind of owe it to other players to return the "favour".
