...This is a really good point. I can definitely see how buying flavourcop to keep scum from doing so would be a good call. I doubt that was KoD's reasoning based on his posts, but this is good for people to note in the future when more scum-useful items come up later on.thinking about it more, its always equally in town and scum's interest to buy a given item, since the more an item is worth to town, the more money scum will be willing to spend to prevent town from getting it, and vice-versa. This might change depending on how the money mechanic develops though. There's a role called marketeer (potentially) in the game and i would guess this mechanic is centered around them.
