Hiders usually say who they hide behind so if they die we know who to go for. A lot of times I've seen they use themselves as sort of a cop who could die with a guilty so yeah he probably did hide behind the guy he thought was scummy.
This is actually exactly how the Hider role should be used.
"When I look up, I see people cashing in. I don't see heaven, or saints or angels.
I see people cashing in on every decent impulse and human tragedy."
Why was I the only one suspicious of Doc? Well obviously someone else saw through that ruse. It wouldn't surprise me at all that scum have a watcher and simply watched Doc. "Protection please" when you haven't even done anything, and said seriously, is a huge flag.
I would, however, like to direct the night lynchers towards the oompaloompa guy. He's been of no use so far and if by chance he is town, then he is nothing but a big distraction and so should be heave-hoed ASAP. I want to hear his claim as I said before, but we're approaching time for me to log off for the night and things might have moved on considerably fast by the time I am back on.
I can't think of anything he could say which would shift the suspicion off him. Only if someone else's role reveals something which would explain Mikey's death.
Also, a quick question, if a hider hides behind a townie and that townie is targeted for a kill, does the hider die instead of or as well as the townie?
