I disagree. It may not make much odds early on, but as player numbers decrease the Sheriff's view of what's going on becomes clearer, and you really want him/her to believe you are on the side of good right up until the point you turn on him/her.
When we were playing in the pub, it came down to me, Hentzau and Jim, who was the Sheriff. I was the renegade, Hentzau was the deputy, and it had been made fairly obvious that this was the case so Jim didn't have much trouble deciding to kill me. If I'd made more of an effort to come across as a deputy, it wouldn't necessarily have turned out that way.
Ok. But what I'm trying to do is help Jen's view become a lot clearer for when I die, because it seems like I'm going to be the next one who dies and we're not in the "late game" yet.
The only defence the guy who kills me will have is "oh, I thought he was lying". Which, stacked against what I've said today and the fact I'm actually a deputy, wont look great.
I know if I was another deputy looking on this, I'd think twice about killin' ol' Kramer. An outlaw might not. And now, I've exhausted all I have to say for round 5 I reckon.
