And once again, bombariffic chooses to reveal himself unlooked for and unexpected, probably not for long.

I think that Tolkien's Norse inheritence is mostly philological (language-based). As well...

Thanks for a great game everyone, especially my great co-wolves, who were excellent throughout. It's been good fun.

Hi all,

Just the one post and vote for me today I'd imagine - it's been a titanic monday for us tree surgeons. May be able to get back for one more post in an hour or so, but lots to do in...

Mormegil has shown increased participation today, but I remain unconvinced of his innocence.

One thing I have mentioned today is people's defensiveness and personal arguments, and morm has added...

Having looked back, I am more sure of my point about people agitatedly defending themselves being suspicious.

First off, an apology for being so late. The internet in my house was down this morning, and I've not had a chance to catch up until now.

I have to go now, and though he wasn't on my recent list of 2, I'm going for morm.

I've rather abandoned my big-players conspiracy having talked myself into believing SpM, and unexpected RL issues took up my morning, which I planned to spend looking at one or two others.

In looking over sauce's actions, It hit me just how little morm has participated - I knew he's only posted a little, but it's all been very low on content as well.

Saucepan Man, day 1

SpM started out day 1 in a fairly light tone, with an in-character post predicting the outcome of the game (post 13).

He followed this immediately with a serious note about the changeling (they...

This is going to be an interesting day.

I'd like to do it but can't really, as I'll be away for a couple of days in about 2 weeks' time, which would be slap in the middle of the game period.

I've got quite a nice idea of how to organise...
