Ok, this move right here leads me to believe Bacon is probably Mafia.
There are a lot of different reasons why Bacon would do this, but here are the three most likely:
1 - Bacon is a townie, and really thinks I am mafia, and is trying to get a run started at me. I am not mafia, and if anyone knows how I played as mafia, it would be Bacon. So this makes this much less likely unless he is reading me really badly.
2 - Bacon is mafia and is trying to go for a sympathy vote similar to an EAP melt down, but in a much more saccharine way. It could be possible, since Bacon feels he can talk his way out of anything. I thought the 3rd option I am about to post was the most likely, but now that I think about it, this option actually makes a lot of sense.
3 - Bacon is Mafia and wants to round to end without further discussion, so we cannot search for the other mafia members. In moving his vote, he shifted the votes from 4-3-1 to 4-2-2 with only 3 outstanding votes. However, by voting for me, he made it 5-2-2 with only 2 outstanding votes, essentially killing himself.
Initially, I thought it was option 3, but as I mulled it over, I think it is a combo of both 2 & 3. It really does not seem like a move Townie Bacon would do. Bacon, if I am wrong and missed an option, help fill me in here. Who do you think the mafia are if it is not you, because I think it is now pretty clear you are mafia.
But if Bacon is Mafia, why would he want to kill himself and end the round?
The round was not going to end. And Bacon is not a big proponent of mafia committing suicide in round 1. That's why I am leaning more towards option 2 with a dash of option 3 to pull on people's emotions. I actually feel like I walked into his trap here, since this is the type of fact I would jump on and Bacon knows this. Once I jumped, the votes, including yours started swinging my way, and suspicion of me went up.
I'm not 100% sure WVL is mafia but I am 100% sure that mafia stacked on top of his vote
Bacon sidestepped my question here of who he thought was mafia. Also, I am 100% sure I am not mafia, but I agree with Bacon that at least 1 mafia member jumped on him to hide later in the game. As a note Bacon, I still have not voted. Remember that I changed to Mike D around 1 today, so my vote is nulled out.
Since I do not think Bacon is going to answer my question about who he feels the mafia is, there is no need to wait to post my thoughts anymore. Keep in mind these are all dependent on Bacon being mafia, and I admit I could be wrong about that.
I think LD is likely a townie, because as I said, Bacon does not like to put other mafia in the runoff. That leaves nic, CMP, and MC in the Bacon voters camp that probably includes 1 mafia member.
I am less inclined to think Mike D is mafia anymore, since he is being pretty open. I am also less inclined to think CMP is mafia because other mafia members would have been all over him for stacking so early on Hakuna.
That means that there is 1 mafia member hiding in the Roo, Duddits, Bonzai, Hakuna group. I have my thoughts, but I am not going to risk moving more votes my way, especially since they are already flowing in.
Keep in mind that I got tossed into this runoff when Bacon asked people to vote for me for not posting. Now I am getting voted for again for not posting, and yet, I am still towards the top of the post count.
I am absolutely a townie, but can understand that the rest of the town cannot know this. Bacon is my most likely mafia candidate right now. I can't know for sure, but he is the only one that makes sense to me at this time.
