Generally, I agree with the 1 good magician and their assistant, and 1 evil magician and their assistant. This seems fair in a game with 8 people - 6 town (2 power roles) and 2 scum, one or both of whom likely have powers beyond NK. I assume it's actually a pretty straightforward setup.
That said, I don't really know. it could be 4 scum, 4 town, but then why not bandwagon? With greenlover being revealed as a jester - something *no one* seemed to see coming, this is a possibility - 4 power town and 4 scum.
Still, pretty unlikely I'd say.
As for the powers of scum and town, with GOP's 'flavor,' I'd guess one town power role is some sort of public cop. My guess is that this is the good magician, for reasons outlined by a-wan. I suppose we could have lying evil magicians to force people to say things, but... I don't know, I don't really have a good argument against it. My guess is, as others have mentioned, a roleblocker for the scum, which would force the masons (yes, I assume the power town roles are also masons, as I am not sure they have any other powers) to have the public cop. And the scum obviously have their NK and probably their nightchat as well.
tl;dr, I basically agree with the rolespec (actually somewhat limited) thus far, and do think that GOP is probably town.
I will try to look at Paimon and Webby tonight/tomorrow and post an analysis of everyone (if brief).
Ninja by mod, re scum win conditions: Interesting. I wonder if the scum might have yet another win condition besides/beyond eliminating town? Such as, discern the identity of the good magician and his assistant? This would be interesting. Even more interesting: The good magician and assistant know who the scum are?? But can't claim for a myriad of reasons.
Unlikely, but interesting. More likely it's a much more straightforward game than that.
Ninja by mod, re GOP Flavor: Well, mod, *you* know, but aside from that, I'm willing to believe GOP is town. Some possibilities and alternatives are outlined below (with some repeating):
1. One of the town power roles is a cop, and was able to announce it. (also possible: cop/journalist, or whatever the correct role is)
2. Scum faking (I don't see this as likely, if GOP is town, then that's a free town, if he's not, he might be subject to review by the town power roles, by WIFOM, etc.)
3. GOP self-claiming via power: Also seems unlikely, if nothing else then for flavor, however, if true, makes things difficult for power-town, see 2. above.
4. Other town (non good magician/assistant claiming): Seems very unlikely, not sure why town would have an additional power, incongruous with flavor.
