Yeah, figured I’d start one, mainly because of this statement:
Why!? Why!? Why!?
I don’t get this at all. I’ve never understood it. The miller should not claim by some specific time frame. If the miller gets investigated, the miller should accept they are going to be lynched and the detective wasted an investigation. If the miller never gets investigated, well, they’re pretty much a vanilla anyway. (Unless it’s the rare miller with a power, who also shouldn’t claim unless forced to to avoid lynch, and then expect to by lynched unless your power is undeniably pro-town and can be proven as such.)
But a miller who claims is typically an automatic mislynch to town. Because town typically cannot allow a miller to live. Because to do so give scum a get-out-of-lynch free card.
If you claim miller, you pretty much have to be lynched, barring unique circumstances (cf. peeker’s character in Skrull Planet on Idle’s board, who had a power and was up for lynch so he full claimed and his power claim caused town to give him a short leash).
So don’t do it without a damn good reason. And merely being a miller is not a damn good reason.
