So if the doctor tried saving himself and accidentally killing himself in the process, maybe because he didn't know who to protect, wouldn't there also be another death revealed that was caused by the mafia?

The doctor can't protect himself so it was most likely the mafia that got him last night!

Actually I believe the kill/ protect version of the doctor is kind of non-standard. Normally in the games I play, they generally just protect.

Damn! Lost Doc night one! Anybody got any hints, clues, suspicions? Anyone give you a dirty look?

@Crulax, it's up to the mod whether the doc can protect him/herself. Some allow it, some don't, but I presume it was a mafia kill.

RE: Mafia XXVI Harry Potter
Against L&I's rules to edit our own posts, so consider the following a supplement to my last post.

Some mods do enact percentage based outcomes. It is possible, for example, that nach tried to save himself, but there was a 10% he would kill himself and did so. This isn't used that often, but as a moderator I have used this, muffs has used this, and A2 has used this. It has been a while since I've seen it though, and I do not think that is what happened.

Ok, didn't know that!

I have nothing to go on at this point but it's still early!

That's not true (unless specified by L&I). I was the doctor last game and I could protect myself.

And this is why I hate the "no editing" rule. Also, Laughat

Exactly, why I say percentage without using a constant.

RE: Mafia XXVI Harry Potter
I'm interested in what IM_Ryan said about the possibility that there might not even be a mafia. I didn't read through the Dune thread so I don't know how you can have a mafia game without any mafia. I think it took me a day to read through the Borderlands thread and all the talk about a cult had me confused. Either way, I think the whole doctor protecting himself is kind of irrelevant.

RE: Mafia XXVI Harry Potter
Basically it comes down to it was most likely a mafia kill. Though it could've been:
  • Another townie [trying] to protect him.
  • He [tried] to protect himself.
These are doubtful though, since why would you take a chance of suicide unless you needed to?
