    Like Creepin Bro said, we don't don't want the infected to know our info-gatherers' targets. I'm still not sure why you're adamant about this, because I honestly don't know how my new suggestion

    doesn't satisfy your need of "spreading the information targets." I wish you responded to what I said with this post because right now, what I'm understanding is you want to spread the info gathers thin to make their night actions less reliable and accurate.

    Something like that, yeah. Not horrible odds and I commend you guys for being cautious of it, using both roles on an infected type P is about the worst case scenario here.

    Someone will die no matter what, but we have the opportunity to use our roles in a way that can discourage a specific player from being targeted during the first night. And I have absolutely no reason to think I won't be their first kill.

    I guess it depends on whether or not you want me to make it past the early game. I'm fine with picking someone randomly but I don't think the benefits of a random pick outweigh the benefits of pseudo-protection that come with it.

    I mean whatever we pick, the chances are still not gonna be 100%. We're still practically gambling here, and while yes, things may go bad in the worst case scenario, I don't see a better idea in here.

Having the Researcher contact the Chemist (or vice versa) isn't the objective, it should only be an option that either of them can use if the situation arises.
    I don't see why the chemist and researcher wouldn't contact each other. In the vast majority of the possible scenarios they can safely figure out the identities of each other and if this happens then they can work together for the rest of the game. If they don't contact each other, one of the two is unaware of the identity of the other which may lead to them wasting their power by targeting the other. If they work together from day 2 on they can be much more efficient. No one needs to be revealed for the two to work together. I see no downside.

[EDIT] I reread this after I posted and it seemed like I was being snarky, which I'm not. I'm legitimately suggesting frNME to be the common target, which I thought would satisfy the problem brought up that having someone volunteer might be a ruse.
    Deciding to choose randomly is still a decision lmao. I'm fine with being the target but the idea was to choose randomly so that everyone knew that the choice could not possibly be influenced by infected. We only have 3 hours to decide according to the timer so we should get our plan straight soon.

    The downside, as you've pointed out in the same post I replied to, was that the Chemist could make false assumptions. It would only be reliable if it's only the Researcher that makes the initial contact. If we'd agree that the Chemist shouldn't be the one to initiate, then I guess you're right.

    Deciding to choose randomly is a decision, but having Hewitt to roll a dice for us is asking him to meddle in the game too much. We could also just decide to have him roll a dice everyday to decide who to lynch and we might as well not be here.


    Though if Hewitt decides to end the Day sometime today, then the plan's probably a bust anyway. It needed a unanimous agreement and seeing as how we still haven't decided who to pick and there are still people who haven't even reacted to it, I guess nothing's come out of that in terms of night action thanks to the lack of activity from everyone.

    The Covid Crisis United Nations Summit Day 1 - Evening


    Minutes of the Meeting:

    Participants:
    ErrorBlender, representing the proud nation of New Asgard

    Exile, representing the resilient nation of Madagascar

    Mantha, representing the obscure nation of Jabberwock Island

    Smile, representing the mystical Nation of Islam

    Xyskal, representing the massive International Coalition of Nationalists

    frNME, representing the unknown nation of Djibouti

    Creepin Bro, representing the stalwart nation of Chad

    Veir, representing the industrious nation of North Germany

    1C2, representing the magical nation of Narnia

    Xate, representing the far eastern nation of Vietnam


    Topics Discussed:

    There will be no executions today.

    The Alliance, as nominated by Smile has decided that the following roles are to be chosen in order to counteract the virus:

    Chemist
    - Determines who is infected via SCIENCE!
    - Every night, you may pick 1 player. You will immediately know if that player is Infected or not.

    Researcher
    - Studies up the Infected's history to see if any trends exist.
    - Every night, you may pick 1 player. You will learn if there was anyone who targeted them and if yes, which nation they were.

    The Arbiter (me) has already dealt these roles out at random. We have now entered:

    The Covid Crisis United Nations Summit Night 1

    United Nations with the 2 roles: Submit your targets now.

    Infected: Submit your representative and the one who's doing the killing.
