I think instead of a lynch, something else on day 1. Like an alignment reveal, role reveal, I guess not BG; it has to be both useful for town and mafia.
Rather than lynching someone with a 50/50 of killing town/scum; make it still beneficial, but not punishing (meaning killed off) to the person.
for example, finding out there is a bus driver day 1 could make it more interesting than killing off the bus driver day 1. Especially if it's just a role reveal and not alignment.
things like that are better WITH the lynch. it naturally results in discussion. but if there's no lynch it's pointless to not let it carry over until a day with a lynch from a game design perspective.
the "assassin in the snow" day 1 event here owned imo. basically you pick someone else on day 1 and they'll die night 1 but get to strongman vig someone. it happened to fall to scum, it's better than being lynched but still less than positive.
