I still would have thought Rylan, just for the reasons I stated, but that PM obhave sent me did make me feel a lot more comfortable CBear was clear, so it did help a little.
What I do think helped/hurts is when names are given to the characters and they match the role you play. I remember the tru blood game hurt me when this was set up. I was given a name of a character that was obviously bad, but I couldn't lie and give out a good name because I didn't know who else had it, and if you use a totally obscure name, people eventually figure out you are lying.
Now, with so few people playing, and the Simpsons universe so big, I don't think it mattered much this game.
But back to the PMing. I think in a larger game, it might have hurt that bad, because a lot of things could happen and say obhave told me all her secrets adn then I was recruited, then it hurts them.
But in a small game, when not much coudl change overall, I think it did hurt the reds to some extent, but not to the extent it changed the game totally.
