What do you do when you're jailed night 1 as SK?

Postby SalemDK82 » Wed Nov 14, 2018 2:52 pm

I find that as long as the town isn't completely oblivious to the situation they'll always lynch the guy who was jailed if the jailor got killed by an SK, no matter what he says or claims.

So what are you supposed to do when you're the SK in this situation?

Claim retri than claim roleblocked every night

Alternatively, claim SK and hope town leashes you (not recommended)

I won 2 times in such a situation. Ret and Transporter are the best.

Ranked: claim ret.
All Any: claim surv, or hope jailor didn't write you in his will and just don't claim jailed.
Classic: claim doc and try to kill the sheriff ASAP.

None of these are foolproof but they all work under the right circumstances.

Yeah, surv claims sometimes live. They tend to be kind of a mixed bag of "die N1" and "live until endgame". They tend to be more of the former than the latter, but there isn't really a better thing to claim other than maybe Ret.

Claim Survivor. Survivor is the most helpful role so everybody wants to know who the Survivor is.

Can't wait until you die.

If you are surv do AFI (Ask For Investigative). D1S is a mixed bag of losing and not deserving a win because naive people who believe all D1Sers.

Smart people never let a ret claim live longer than 2 nights with a town dead.

If you have won with ret as SK... consider yourself lucky, for you had players in your game that should never play again. Dumbest play ever. You'd never win in my games. I am way too smart for idiotic stuff like that.

Write a lot of stuff, questions and so, and hope the Jailor is too distracted to write your name in their will. Rarely works.

If you know who the Jailor is (you claim an important role and ask the Jailor about their name or simply guess):
Write the Jailors name and some pun or joke in your Deathnote. This makes it seem like the SK targeted the Jailor randomly.

But it's usually game over anyway.
Either Jailor gets revived or you get exposed on the role you claimed, lynched for CC or something like that.
You can call me Bod.
No, that's not my real name. Thanks for asking.

claim mayor or ret and tell the Jailor to not write your name down in your will so you can stay anonymous.

For some unknown reason town loves to believe ret. claims. Claiming ret., if no CC is an easy go away card, then if someone important dies just keep claiming rb.

Try your best to act the role you claimed in jail. Pay attention to chat and figure out people's roles and figure out who they are going to visit.

Literally, claim TS and hope for the best.

I tried this as jester once. Jailor died n1. I claimed ret. The town spent the next few days looking for an imaginary consort and transporting me while the mafia picked them off one by one. I was hung on Day 5 after the medium said the dead were yelling at them. This is my most memorable lynch ever.

I usually go for escort, but I guess it depends on the others as well. Even if you get jailed and aren't SK but the jailor dies to SK, no matter what you claim you will get lynched. Claiming retributionist just buys you another day.

nothing, since the Devs want the SK to lose in this situation since they still haven't added a solution to this

you openly claim sk immediately, get yourself lynched and then you can leave the game

Obviously Transporter Or Escort You Can Make Your claim Hard, So Town actually believe it.Btw try to talk to jailor as long as possible to prevent them to write their will fast it helps to make them distracted so they don't think you sk and put their will fast.

Just claim Retributionist and kind of give up.

I don't get the "hope the town leashes you" tactic, I really don't.

Claim Retirbutionist. With the Jailor dead and you can eventually be lynched and find something more fun. It's what I hate about this role, you can come up with the most plausible story and have the Jailor completely buy it, but you still get instant-lynched anyways.

I usually claim sheriff in ranked. Doc is too suspicious because it aligns with SK's inves results, but sheriff has greater claim chance because it's a TI, not a TP. Since there's 2 TIs and often an RT is a TI, there could very well be a sheriff and the results are easy to fake. Try to sus out who's mafia by scumreading and saying a member is sus in your will.

I have to admit though. I don't think I've ever won as SK in ranked, and the times I've claimed sheriff, it's only really bought me 1-2 days like, 30% of the time. But still...it has more chances than claiming doc. There's nothing I know of that definitely works for SK, but sheriff > doc claim and although it's not the magic claim, it does bring your chances up from 0 than if you stayed quiet or claimed doc or something.
