I'm saying, take Harley off the table. That paranoia can wait - Unagi, you're the one with Supe-is-already-evil theory, and then bringing up that night one was most likely conversion. No, no it isn't most likely - it is, at best, a 50/50 shot given all the ifs (.15 vs .15 (truncated to 2 decimal places) from a bunch of math based on mean number of villains and protectors I did before scrapping it in my last post).
We have villains to kill, so lets not look over our own shoulder and question our few claimed roles. Assuming 4 villains start, we have a 2 in 6 shot of not having the joker. Let the scanners figure out if they're telling the truth.
As to Lagom - I don't feel like discussing his role as obfuscation is pretty much part of his value, so analyzing it publicly means that we identify vulnerability. They should want to kill the ones who can defeat them - Lagom is, at best, an inconvenience. There are plenty more people on-board that may or may not be a bigger threat to them, and while taking out a protector is a smart move, they may be motivated to find Batman, WW, convert Superman, etc.
IF HE'S A BADGUY, that is one out of a possible 3-5. Once again, at least he's staked a claim. We can analyze it, or let the villains solve this mystery with a night kill (which is proof enough on DAY FRICKIN' TWO).
I will not vote Lagom, and I'm not sure I'm going to vote Grund.
Tru1cy and Superman are also off the table for me.
Now let's talk about the remaining group, and us getting more "proven" and taking a shot.
My order of preference is:
[list=][*]1. We vote to call out the pair of Hawks to take a shot, and kill a suspected villain. Reason being: they are at greatest risk to losing their power with lynch or night kills, given that if one hawk dies, no shot can be made.
[*]2. If no hawks come out, we then call the green arrow to take a shot on a claimed human (e.g. Grim or another volunteer). They will be protected during the night.
[*]3. We each put up a list of who we think should be tested from the pool of unclaimed. NOTE: This is dependent on 1 vs 2 - GA vs HM/HW shifts what we're looking for.
[*]4. Assuming success in 1(or 2) and 3, step 4 is discussion and defense. We can also take volunteers.
[*]5. We call for Green Lantern to disable the targets power.
Since we don't want anyone outed, and we don't know if these roles exist, we simply put it out there and HM/HW, GA and GL can choose to participate or not.
Implementation should be as follows:
- A. POST THE QUESTION/ACTION REQUEST.
- B. EVERYONE REPLY WITH a quote of the question posed, and the word "ACKNOWLEDGED". If it is step one or two, the GA / HM / HW can pipe up with their role, should they choose to do so. GL should NOT reveal.
- C. We move to the next step, and repeat A, B, and C.*
If the shooter(s), or GL decide not to participate, then that is their decision and they can keep that to themselves.
The only part of this that includes discussion is to WHO we choose to test, and that isn't something we can do until we know who's willing to use their powers. Step 2 should be skipped if HM/HW have decided to participate.
I think this is the best way to ensure we go fishing without revealing those who want to remain hidden, and gives us a chance to get ahead of the villains. They've potentially failed once, and with the most people alive today (save Qantaga ), we need to get ahead of the game.
