Other examples are Specials claiming vanilla town. A blatant lie, but a pro-town move until they're ready to reveal.

Alternatively, some players like to claim special to throw off scum. Claiming seer may get the scum to waste their vote on you, and thus protect another pro-town special. Generally, this is considered anti-town play as it confuses other townies just as much as scum.

And that added to the flavour. Raven could have just said "nope, you two are not allowed in my game." Instead she killed them as part of the story.

Flail the desperate often nonsensical attempts by a member of the mafia to change the vote when the bandwagon is heavily on a member of the mafia.

Flail also happens when a player comes under personal pressure. Scum players may flail because their role has built in pressure to look uninformed, and additional pressure may have additional impact. Town players also flail under pressure. It can be a matter of degree, which is difficult to judge sometimes.

Also, some players tend to be cooler under pressure when they are scum than when they are town.

Depends on whether a town flailer has a special role or not, too. I don't worry about being lynched when I'm vanilla town, but if you've got a big bw on you and you don't want to out as a special cause it's early in the game it can be hard not to flail and look even more suspicious.

Hard reset

I've had to do this once or twice when I'm fixated on a particular train of thought. It becomes difficult to let it go and start afresh. It's a good thing to do once in a while I think. I've been wrong often enough to know that it's worth throwing out my thoughts and letting others in.

PR

there's nothing special about normal people

power role applies better in that it covers town, scum and indies

post restriction only refers to the way OP8 plays

thus,

Too broad and only serves to obfuscate. You can manage 3 more letters to communicate your intended meaning.
