It's a guaranteed pass.
This is only a guaranteed pass if you're town (and most town person is also town). If you're scum, and you fail the mission, then you can say the other person did, and there's no way to distinguish whether you're town telling the truth (and so more_people and this other person are both spies), or you're lying and you're the spy. Basically, we'd be in a situation where we know there's at least 1 spy out of 3. If instead, we use two players that aren't you and roband, and the mission fails, we'll have two spies out of four.
I think this is a better position to be in, since we'd know that there's no more than 2 spies in the remaining 6 players, as opposed to your method which has no more than 3 in the remaining 7.
more_people has to either pass the mission, or be outed as a spy (by slbub - who I hope to hell isn't scum as well).
It doesn't really matter whether slbub is scum, because the point of 'In the spotlight' is that the target player has to say publicly whether they pass or fail the mission, the result doesn't go to slbub.
Haven't really had a think yet about who roband should use his power on.
Aardvarki, what's the point of doing mission 2 or 3 first? I think we narrow things down much more and have a much greater chance of passing if we do mission 1?
