Yes. If the Deputy dies, then the Sheriff can continue to inspect, he just won't have his buddy around anymore. If they shoot the Sheriff (but don't shoot the Deputy), the Deputy becomes the new Sheriff.

Excellent choice, good sir.

Well, okay then.
Yeah I'm the sheriff. So, um, protect please? :unsure
Just don't tell me Lamkin is the godfather. If so, I am doomed!
Deputy, remain anonymous. I mean it! :P

Thanks for having the guts to stand up first. But, if your deputy remains anonymous, there's no way for us to know whether or not you're telling the truth! You've gotta work as a set!

I started out baffled, yes. But then I looked up your reference. Gotcha. Now I can explain how this is different.

Your concern seems to be about the case when two sets of players claim to be Sheriff/Deputy. You want to know how we know which one is the correct pair. We don't, at least not immediately. When we lynch one of the potential impostors (or they are murdered), we will learn their role after their death. This will effectively tell us which of the people claiming to be the police are lying. The townspeople as a whole don't lose if we accidentally kill the real police first. That's where this differs from Princess Bride.

Because that is a possibility, I suspect that we won't see two sets of people claim to be the Sheriff/Deputy. I think that by putting this strategy out there, we can establish some level of trust with our police and actually make use of the information they collect. I'm perfectly ready to believe that Monkey is the Sheriff, provided that he reveals his Deputy and that the Deputy publicly backs his story up.

Then the Doctor (assuming the Doctor is listening) protects the police! Easy peasy!

Why doesn't the Sheriff tell us who he investigated, and what he found them to be? Then we'll have at least one person who knows for sure that the Sheriff is who he says he is.

Lamkin's innocent. I already said that. :|
Also, if I said the deputy, then there would be a problem with the fact that the doctor can only protect one person and whatnot.
So, um, yeah...
kie :P
There, now you have your proof! >:(

Cool. Monkey and Kie are Sheriff/Deputy. If this is not true, somebody in the game on the townspersons' side should know and should immediately inform us.

I'm prepared to lynch somebody who is not Monkey, Kie, or Lamkin. Doctor, I would recommend protecting Monkey or Kie next time around.

I predict that the Mafia will not choose to murder Monkey or Kie next time, since, if the doctor complies, there will be a 50% chance that their choice will be protected. Sllyman, will we ever get to know publicly which player the Doctor chose to protect?

Come to think of it, if I were Mafia, I'd probably kill that RoboBob guy. What a little punk.

Just so you know, you can't vote not to kill anyone. Besides, we'll never get any of the Mafia that way.

There's never enough info to make an informed decision on the first day. In fact, already knowing 3 people not to vote for is way more than you tend to have in a game of Mafia. So we choose someone else at random :glasses

Choosing not to kill anybody is always advantageous for the Mafia. It would essentially give them multiple turns in a row to murder, and they'll never murder themselves. We might as well take our opportunity to lynch even if it is risky - there's no point in the game when it wouldn't be risky.

Personally, I like to start by lynching the quiet people first. Let's shock them into talking.

Before we get too far in this game, we should establish a no-edit rule. Editing can easily confuse the actual results of voting.

I think that Monkey and Lamkin are Mafia, and are trying to confuse us with claims of sherriffness and innocence. Even you, the "sherriff" recognized a chance of dishonesty. Why aren't you sure that Lamkin's innocent, since you inspected him? If you had truly inspected him, then you would have said that there was a 0% chance of Lamkin's guilt. Slip of the tongue? I think not...

And why the -1? Perhaps I should have posted a reason for wishing to kill Lamkin. :?

Oh wait. There's 8 people that could possibly be the Godfather, so a 12.5% chance.
