Werewolf CXII - Dueling Wizards III - The Dead Thread
Hey! Look at that, I managed to get the number and all other relevant information in both thread titles! Go me! :D

This is the Dead Thread for Werewolf CXII - Dueling Wizards III.

Is that enough Roman numerals for you?

If you are a Living player, i.e. you have not been announced or listed as Dead in various ways in one of my closing or opening game narrations, then this is not the thread for you!!!

Reading further constitutes cheating.

If you are Dead, then this is the thread for you.

In you go.



Dead players may read this entire thread and continue to read the main game thread. You may, however, only post here. You may post here NIGHT and DAY. By DAY, after there are two residents here, you may vote for a Living Player to be given a double vote for that DAY's lynch. The Living Player will not know of this until after the fact, but it will be clearly stated in the post-DAY narration who had their vote doubled.

Every NIGHT after there are two residents here you may vote for me to reveal the alignment of one dead player which I will state as PREDATOR or PREY.

The deadline is 8:00 PM US Eastern.

Participation is optional.

As in the Living Thread, ties result in nothing happening.

And...if you ARE still alive, stop it. You will live in shame for the rest of your days if you cheat and you know it!

The Dead
many names will be here soon

The fall of the Unfortunate was abruptly cut off by a pile of cushions.

The Unfortunate slowly moved around, trying to ascertain if he was in any way injured.

Miraculously, it didn't seem that he was...except that vision...the Teeth...the Claws in the NIGHT.

It felt like he had fallen for miles and miles...and yet he was could that be?

Lights appeared.

Before the Unfortunate was spread out a vast and magnificent banquet. I would describe it in exquisite detail...but I'm still not George R. R. Martin and I am a bit pressed for time. Just assume that it held in abundance all the foods that the Unfortunate loved most in the world and then some.

"Hello..?" said the Unfortunate.

His voice echoed back to him, and yet was muffled at the same time.

"Is anyone there?"

Then PAAAAIN...and he knew.

He was dead. The teeth and claws had been real.

This...who knows?

Maybe Salmoxis was right. Maybe death is a banquet.

Well, if he was stuck before he was really stuck now. Nothing else for it but to try some food.


Well, better late than never...or not, I guess, given what we are talking about.

DAY 2 has begun.

I'm afraid there isn't much for you to do toDAY...but it's not my fault. :p

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 06:03 PM

I had a feeling

I was like hmmm bet I die.

Welp I'm gonna spam my thoughts here that I had prepared for the living thread.

Boro and Lottie super suspicious especially at the end sounded like an EW Begging a wolf to save them.

Man I gotta wait for someone else to do cool things...

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 06:22 PM

Sure he didn't *wink*

Edit: I can use emojis?

Edit 2: never mind

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 06:29 PM

Kuru I hope you don't have notifications on, if you do I'll stop.

Inzil GREAT question!

Not sure they'd had guessed me gifted I wasn't the first to cast suspicion on Lottie even if I were the first vote for her.

Kuruharan 07-12-2017 06:47 PM

Don't worry about it.

I'm going to have so many notifications to delete it isn't even funny.

My Barrow Downs email isn't my main email so I don't necessarily check it that often.

I should probably do that and clear them out this evening, now that we mention it.

Anyway, I have a fun idea for a game.

Boro has wanted to be in the Dead Thread in a Dead Thread game since they were invented and he hasn't made it yet.

We should place bets on whether he makes it this game or not.

I almost think he will not this time either.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 06:55 PM

Can't say.

I'd say odds are 3-1 he makes it in

Kuruharan 07-12-2017 07:51 PM

One note
One thing I will note for your benefit since you didn't play last time I hosted a game:

I always post the Dead Thread narration first of the two narrations at the beginning and end of every DAY and NIGHT.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 07:57 PM


Edit: I didn't even realize the narrative here was different I read it here and didn't read the living assuming it was the same neat.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 08:44 PM

*slams cupboards*

*Throws books*

*other spirit antics*

I thought this was supposed to be the dead thread.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 09:55 PM

See this is why you don't kill the guy that talks too much. *Glares at unknown wolf*

I popped all this popcorn for nothing. Harrumph

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 10:01 PM

I'm running for city Council next year. That has nothing to do with the game I'm just excited. Oh and I've applied to a few different jobs. Been at my current one for 15 years, sort of at a dead end career wise here because they screwed me over. So hopefully I'll get a call back soon. Not that you need to know just figured y'all don't know where I work so no harm venting to you.

Wonder if Nerwen looked through my posts yet...

I also wonder what the next victim will think of coming in here with almost a page of nonsense and self blabber.

Hey future friend! If you ever wanted to know how my brain works this is it jumping from topic to topic no transition needed.

I should probably look at that plan thingy Eonwe wrote up...

Nah winging it is way more fun.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 10:08 PM

Oooh some movement.

Meh nothing exciting. Historically speaking I'm an easy lynch because I think in a different way than most which makes me suspicious. I tend to last a while but die right at that time that tilts the games favor. For me to be killed night one in my opinion has a certain amount of significance. If nothing more than I got people talking.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 10:09 PM

Hah wonder what happens if they try to kill the visitor and the visitor is resurrected I'd be alone an extra day. Ha.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 10:13 PM

Brinn picking up what I'm putting down. I said that yesterday it's like having multiple day ones with no idea how many wolves there are.

Although I can't honestly remember ever being gifted... hunter maybe? Was a wolf my first time out got along for a while as a lone wolf by playing a confused cobbler.

At any rate, Lottie is my top suspect especially with that last minute shenanigan.

It's funny I posted this and afterwards thought it'd get me lynched. Seems to worded as a wolf asking if they'd still win.

Morsul the Dark 07-12-2017 10:37 PM

Oh right, I totally didn't understand Eonwes plan and made a point to say it. That'd be a decent reason to kill me off not as useful in here.

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 02:38 AM

, I wouldn't ignore it either, yay Mith!

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 06:10 AM

EDIT: x’d with Lalaith.

I'm fine :p

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 06:36 AM

Nerwen-Innocent probably
Inziladun- Innocent Probably
Loslote- Evil Wizard
Boromir88- just wants to die so probably innocent
Shastanis Althreduin- could go either way
satansaloser2005- probably innocent... or a wolf
Eomer of the Rohirrim- don't know
Thinlómien- probably innocent
Lalaith -don't know
Legate of Amon- innocent probably
Mithalwen- either way
Eönwë innocent probably
Nogrod don't know
Probably innocent
Brinniel- Don't know

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 06:50 AM


note: It is NOT ALLOWED for a Living Player to click on the post count link of the Dead Thread to check and see how many times Dead Thread player have posted. Obviously you will be able to see how many posts there are in total and who the last poster is, but that is all that is allowed. Do not check who has posted how many times, do not cite who has posted how many times, do not base arguments on it. You are the Living and they are the Dead and you don’t know what they are up to…and quite possibly neither do they.
That one.

Kuruharan 07-13-2017 09:06 AM

I just noticed that I mislabeled the DAY in the opening narration today.

The shame! :o

Fixed it now. No one will ever know. :D

The odds are this will be your only day alone.

A Visitor will be here in the Dead Thread for at least a NIGHT phase, which would presumably (barring a Ranger save or something like that) add one more person to the population in the Dead Thread.

Of course, now that I have said that, we will now get a spate of ties in the Living Thread and then Ranger saves and you'll be in here alone forever.

Much to Boro's dismay.

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 09:54 AM

That'd be hilarious not going to lie.

Heh I like Mitch's Monty Python link.

Also Bad Lip Readings are always great.

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 10:49 AM

Pfft this my dead thread I'm not telling you living people what to do, am I? Hmmm??

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 12:07 PM

For Zil


Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 02:27 PM


Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 02:42 PM

Boromir does have a point look at all this Space

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 02:44 PM


I wonder if I can get to page two before someone else gets here.

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 02:45 PM

Oh I'd need 40 comments here before then ummm unlikely

Eonwe: too bad you can't read this thread I literally said that first thing. Run with it!

Honestly I'm not going to let MY playstyle be dictated by others. Thanks though.

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:27 PM

Votes are spread out 1 each across the board. I might stay alone again:rolleyes:

I'm betting Sally goes with her gut she usually does so Lottie might join me.

If Eonwe does this might get awkward...

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:28 PM

If Boro is that determined another self vote is possible I suppose

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:32 PM

I'm not saying I'm going to be deliberately useless or obstructive just that I'm not going to just absorb someone else's plan. All in all though might be fun to have Boro here :o:D

Kuruharan 07-13-2017 05:40 PM

That's just what I was thinking. ;)

EDIT: Although I have to say that at the moment there is the very realistic possibility of another tie.

I was not anticipating this...the game may take longer than I expected and cause some time problems for people. :-/

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:43 PM

Zil-> Nerwen
Lommy -> Eönwe
Eomer -> Lottie
Lalaith -> Eomer
Legate -> Boro
Mith -> Inzil


Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:51 PM

10 minutes attention 10 minutes to deadline. Let's see what happens Nerwen and Boro both looking at possible second votes as well as Lottie.

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:54 PM

Wow there's a possibility I stay alone

Morsul the Dark 07-13-2017 05:56 PM

Pervinca need ++ on her vote.

So Zil will probably be my buddy...
