Holy crap on a stick this thread has exploded. Couple pages in less than a day.
So, at this point, we have a few conclusions.
1. Snark is telling us the truth, FAOT has confirmed his role, the cop power was real.
2. FAOT is either Indy survivor, or scum. As per all games I've been in, and as generally plays out, survivors almost always end up siding with scum in the end to avoid being killed and losing. Since he is scum at worst, and a survivor at best, it's a no brainer than he should be killed. Moreso when so much discussion centers on him, and good info exists to be gained D2.
3. Roband is possibly anti-town. FAOT's death will help nicely with confirming this if any role info is given out that can confirm his power.
This all does not clear Snark however, since a role cop claimed to out an indy doesn't prove towniness in and of itself.
As for the lynch, I'm positive there are scum on that wagon. Thing is, until FAOT is dead and revealed, we can't do much with the claim regarding the cube. If it changes the holders alignment, then that is a problem. A problem solved by roband hammering IMO. IF FAOT is revealed to be telling the truth, then at worst, we made a possible scum into an indy, and can deal with the situation better tomorrow with more facts. Realistically, I don't see a better approach to this than roband hammering, one way or the other. This could be a jesterbomb play on FAOT's part for all we know. I'd say, roband hammering is our best bet. Unless someone has a logical argument against this, anyone who prevents roband from hammering will look damned scummy in my eyes.
We'll learn a lot D2, that's for sure.
DS9, after being told the story and moral of the boy who cried wolf by Julian.
Garak: "Are you sure that's the moral?"
Julian: "Of course. What else could it be?"
Garak: "Never tell the same lie twice."
