I don't know if counting that accusation is as bad as you make it out to be... I mean, in the real police force, you have to be attentive. Look at baseball. If you think that there are three outs and you throw the ball into the stands when there are really two out, you still get punished for it. And keep in mind that you do get an accusation that based on another precedent you shouldn't have gotten >.>

That's what I've thought for a while...

Plus, if it is Paradox, there's a reason we haven't gotten much of an identity clue, if one at all: the entire game is an identity clue. The idea of killing people to restore order - the game's theme - is a paradox.

Whoa, that would be deep. If it's correct, kudos to both him for thinking of it and you for figuring it out.

In every other game to precedent has been to forgive for re-accusing. I did it, countless others have. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.

In which case the assassin would have a username dealing with force/courage or a name/username that is will (or deals with that name if it refers to a username).

How so? It sounds like a great idea.

Sassy and I have had a little *friendly discussion*, and we've come to a compromise. Kestrel doesn't get his accusation back (since kjhsscioly has an extra accusation floating around anyways), but more importantly for you guys, his mistaken accusation doesn't count towards sassy's win. Fair enough for everyone?

Thanks alpha and kjhsscioly.

Maybe the identity clue could have to do with the stories in general? There could be several hints in the stories which point to the identity of the assassinator.
