Yeah I was surprised as well. I figured if I could keep talking and find a way to keep myself alive from the other townies that the mafia would never vote for me because they would know that all the other townies would suspect me as well.
I was definately surprised I was offed. The only reason I could think is that AA and ThatDude were mafia and I called them on it there at the end. I was only half right.....
damn you Leber!!!
Yeah, it's a delicate balance to keep yourself alive as a townsperson. You don't want to become so suspicious that you're lynched during the day, but if no one suspects you at all, the mafia will mosts likely kill you off.
And, stop me if I'm wrong, but isn't that another reason that we should have been suspicious of Leber? Everyone thought him innocent, and yet he survived Night 2.
In the future, that would probably be a good thing to keep an eye on. After following these past games I've found that the mafia almost always want to kill of the least suspicious townsperson (unless they're reasonably certain who the investigator is). This way the decision is untraceable to them and they leave the people alive who are most likely to be lynched the next day. If the unsuspicious person keeps being left alive, it might be a sign they're mafia.
