Do not use it tonight. Move past this Lawls business and focus on either Chainsaw or Christ0. If day one end in a no lynch and we dont achieve anything else its a waste. Saying that, lynching just for the sake of a day 1 lynch is scummy. Lawls' role can help us and is essentially a variant of a beloved princess role.
I don't think he should use it tonight. We'll have more to discuss tomorrow if there are role usages tonight whereas otherwise we'd probably be going around in circles. This is a very good role if we could get it to even a little later in the game where there is likely to be loads to talk about already and an extra day phase will help us enormously. There are probably enough protective roles that one of them would think about helping out Lawls tonight and that is probably enough to scare mafia off him for now
For mine, using the role doesnt confirm him as town in the slightest. As previous games have evidenced, this role was a mafia role and only allowed the mafia kill. So do people actually think that lawls using the role, saying he gets a kill or cop makes him confirmed town? It an easy mafia tactic to try and get confirmed.
