I think you aren't really thinking about the third party roles correctly. The SK and the survivor both needed separate townies to survive. I would say more like 9.5 townies. Of course, Yomiel messed up the numbers as well. I forgot to mention that in my synopsis. That's part of the reason that I really wanted him to work out.
The other thing is that if the cult recruiter died, the cultists returned to town. And he died if he tried to recruit someone who was unrecruitable. Unrecruitable people included the mafia and the SK. So, there was a good chance that there would be townies returning to the town AND they would know that they were town. That significantly helps town to have people who know they are town.
Mr.Squirrel = mafia
Isaiah = recruited by cult
New Guy = SK
Jonty = town
Safari = mafia
Edocsil = Cult
Chuck = town
~Le gasp~ only 2 townies lynched me
I'm not sure you can really count isaiah40 as really being cult at all. He was recruited one night and then became town again the next day with edocsil was blown up. But, I think you're gonna see the SK and a couple mafia on most lynches.

In this case I really believed everyman was a vig and he would have to choose between Isaiah and I. I did not want to piss him off. I really did my best to make Isaiah look scummy without trying to be overtly doing so.
I started thinking, "what if Isaiah decides to protect everyman?" would he do it to second guess me or would he stay on chuk? I didn't want to travel that road to insanity.
In the end all I could do is make a choice and hope the dice roll in my favor.
IB my friend, you really must try to remember people's usernames correctly.
Night strike =/= strike wolf
everyman=/= new guy
Man, Iron Butterfly kept doing that the whole game. He sent in a NK on the last night on everyman and I had to PM him and ask him who he was talking about.

I think the cult recruiter might have been a real person (not sure about that), but he wasn't in the show. None of the mafia names were in the show. David Dale (Yomiel's role) was a real person, but also not on the show. So, 9 of the roles were actually from the show and 7 were not.

A: 5 mafia?!?!?
B: Both town and mafia had a busdriver. Couldn't this cause conflicts and weird paradoxes? For instance, Mr. Squirrel was busdriven with both jonty and new guy. What if new guy had ordered a kill on Mr. Squirrel?
A. I guess see my previous explanations. I thought it would work out when I thought about everything, but I did say that I might have changed a mafia role or taken one away if I redid it.
B. Yes, you are right about that. If they were to bus the same person, I did a coin flip to see who would be used first. That actually only happened one time though. And, because of all the night actions that night, I didn't even need to flip a coin, because the result would be the same either way. One way, isaiah40 would have been the kill target. The other way, thechuck51 would have been the kill target, but isaiah40 was protecting thechuck51 anyway. Other than that, the watcher/tracker was dead at that point, the cop investigated elsewhere, etc. But, when the same person is bussed twice, I flip a coin.

Sorry, I prefer for green for town. If you would like I'd be more than happy if you want me to make my town's blue.
I think most think blue is convention for town. Personally, I don't really care, but if people get green, they may think it's a different type role. I would do it however you want. I wouldn't make town red or mafia blue though. That will just mess with people.
