And the most humorous part of the game for me, was when Garthy tried to reveal CaptainCatton as the serial killer.
And he sent me this message before hand
No, no, I didn't send it, he's lying! He's.... Ah. Okay, I did send it then, that's not going to work twice, is it?
The humans were pretty disadvantaged given the level of innocent killing on the first night, and I thought we were stuffed. I gave some thought as to the whole situation. The first night showed three factions at work, so I figured the best chance was to play one off against the other. The question was how. When the "Seer" (Gainsworthy) contacted me with some sinister details about catton, we bounced some ideas back and forth about what to do, and then I thought- let's blackmail the killer into working for us. That way we get a kill a night, an extra vote a day, and a chance to fight back. And I'd never seen WTG blackmail before, so I thought it new enough that the villains wouldn't catch on until it was too late.
Unfortunately if Gainsworthy was lying, he'd clean up the evidence and try it again on someone else, so I needed some insurance. You seemed pretty on-the-level, and I thought it'd be worth a shot to trust him in that way. I did not suspect, even slightly with the most remote possibility at all, that you were the Serial Killer at that time. I didn't for the rest of the game either. The only real thing that concerned me was I was having trouble getting the specifics on his ability. That, and you were far too friendly.
I thought it unlikely, but maybe you were a wolf or vamp. Again, never suspected you were the serial killer.
I think I'd actually asked Gainsworthy if he could Seer you (because I wanted to be sure you were safe), but heard nothing back. I believe Gainsworthy had no control over who his visions were on, but hadn't mentioned that at all at that point. Heck, I still don't know if that is the truth or not. What a tangled web we weave!
So anyway, I think it was a good plan. Except my partner in crime was cursed, my confidant was the actual killer, and my mark just made it public. But apart from that, it was perfect, dammit.
His visions held a hint of truth but tended to make everyone look like psycho killers anyway. Like seeing hroon covered in blood, which wasn't far off, since he was the profuse bleeder, or seeing Xotes surrounded by dead people, when he was the medium. I think the only way he recognized you was because I couldn't figure out how to make a coward look deadly.
On the subject of Gainsworthy's visions, I'm still confused. Gainsworthy got fuzzy visions in general, but when he contacted me, he said I was a Coward
(correct colouring and title). Was the message about me unique in some way in that it had my actual identity? I never did figure that out.
I think we both caught on after catton and Xotes turned out to be innocent(ish), with different outcomes. Gainsworthy would have been questioning his visions, and I was questioning Gainsworthy's honesty. :} At the time of his death, I had strongly suspected he was a vampire.
Re making a coward look deadly, I had a couple of shots at it, but couldn't come up with something I liked. The closest I came is talk of a dark figure in a house, silence, "his work done, a bloody cleaver falls to the ground", and the figure flees the house. I couldn't make it sound right though. It is
