Being more odd than usual? I don't think playing badly counts as being odd. I have little idea to what to do and am uselessly lazy, though I hope I'll try more if I survive 'til later. And the sad part is that I really shouldn't die, because anybody is a better lynch candidate than yourself, always, because there are no more valuable Gifteds.


I might as well do something odd, because the current situation isn't leading to anywhere.

Gwath might be a Wolf, but feels too easy.
Boro might be a Wolf, but I'm reluctant to voting him.
McCaber doesn't look especially suspicious, just non-existent. It's one reason to vote him, but such people usually end up as Innocent.

I say that I'm not catching a Wolf right now and will turn completely around and vote for somebody who hasn't made anything that I regard as flaws yet.


EDIT: Xd with everything since #114.

Mac: your post makes you look more innocent to me... just saying it now if I'm not around toMorrow.

Agreement / disagreement aren't the marks of innocence / evil.

Mac! You said that post is on Nogrod. If you ask me, it was all about you, not him and it strengthens my suspicion of you... you did the same defensive mistake again.

Funny crosspost with Lommy...

Okay. Is it Gwath (too easy) or McCaber (shot in the dark on a master deceiver)?

Sally -> Boro
Gwath -> Boro
Menel -> Mac (Boro 2, Mac 1)
Boro -> Gwath (Boro 2, Mac 1, Gwath 1)
Lily -> Gwath (Boro 2, Gwath 2, Mac 1)
Rikae -> Gwath (Gwath 3, Boro 2, Mac 1)
Mith -> Gwath (Gwath 4, Boro 2, Mac 1)

I would prefer to give Gwath another day, as I'm really not sure of him. On the other hand, I would really not like to see Boro go. And I have no idea for a responsible and feasible last minute counter-waggon.

I don't like toDay's voting.

Okay, I feel now I can vote for McCab. I mean, how shocking that he returns suspicious of Gwath. I will lynch myself if Gwath turns out a wolf, though.

I do want to know what's up with Macalaure and Boro, though. As Lommy just pointed out about Mac's last post, both of them seem to be posting about themselves a lot.

Ok, I'll please one of Nogrod's odd thoughts.

To widen the vote scope.

Gwath's eagerness is a possible sign of Wolf, but I'll be a coward and give you the rights to kill someone you want.

Nah, curses!

Sorry to post after DL, but does Volo's vote count as one for Gwath or Ka? Or does it even matter?

I doesn't matter, but by all logic that I can understand (which is regarded odd ) it counts for Gwath.

I'm unsure about voting for Gwath just yet, something tells me that if we turn him into a fenris we might be cutting off any chance of catching other wolves, considering Gwath's pattern of 'agree' then 'disagree', and then going under the radar at times in relation to defending others. Otherwise the only major suspicion I have of Gwath is him being too agreable at one point then retracting back later on, especially when Rikae analyzes his posts.

Quote:

Quote:
I should also point out, Rikae, that I didn't actually defend Sally and Durelin until my second post - the "fix-it" post - in which I explicitly make them part of my argument. If I was trying to downplay any association with them, then I did a pretty poor job.
I dunno, this could be a wolf trying to carefully arrange things, or a frustrated ordinary. I'd like to see Gwath's actions on the second day especially, if for say, McCab or Mac was voted out, or attacked by wolves (if they are innocent).


McCabbie (see? I can remember now it's not late... Sorry again Mac ), I really wish would give more reasoning and overall opinion on what others are saying about him, or at least some standing as for position. He is acting very, very different than from last time when he was an ordinary. As for suspicion he is rising on my list, but I am hesitant to vote immediately and brashly. I guess being quite from now on would cause him to loose his skin.

I will have to agree somewhat with what Nerwen mentioned earlier, about the connection or at least bandwagoning of McCab after Gwath's fluster of reasoning, but being careful enough not to single out anyone as a wolf or having wolvie behaviour. It does carry its own suspicion for being careful, but uneventful.

OKay, I have no more time right now, and neither does the voting time count down, so I will stand by my above suspicion about Gwath. I want to see what he does later on without either the pressure from Mac, Menel or McCab, or their comfort zone of suspicion that he's using at times. I am not even going to try and throw a suspicion about Boro out here, because they would be stupid, even for me. I'd rather see what he has to say and do when someone, such as Nogrod pokes for information (though I've already seen it before). Mac is still on my list, but I'm curious about his actions later on as well. As for McCab, he is sticking out too much from his past nature, even when he was an ordo and voted. Maybe trying to be different in sake of this game, but his actions are warning me.

Leaf Day 1

The beggars were in the living room and argued. The situation didn't actually look that different from that in the Barrow, before the coming of Death - only the topics were darker. One of them was to die in the evening, and they had to decide who that unlucky was.

In the beginning of the day, Nogrod had sneakily tried to attack the gorgeous white animal that was lying in front of the hearth, but his attention was luckily caught by a fight that had suddenly started: his son Gwathagor was scuffling with the nasty little Thinlómien who had called him names. Nogrod decided to settle the situation by singing a song he had composed just a while ago:

”And with no ranger
we're in danger
of losing our helpfuls sooner than later
so that's an urgency matter:
the weight of possible submarines
may get heavy soon!”


The other beggars cheered and laughed and even the fighters forgot their argument, but there was one who wasn't impressed.

”I hereby forbid you to smile! It's darn annoying,” exclaimed Boro.

”I love it when he's masterful,” sighed Mithalwen, ”he's worth far more than some boring child!”

”But how do you expect I can hear what you say when you peep no louder than the mice Ka eats?” complained Durelin.

”Well, I'm not called Boro the Silent One for nothing...”

Unfortunately, the happy couple's children didn't feel as confident as their parents. Mac the Guileless was dwelling in self-pity and felt that everybody was speaking about him, Menel was sure that his father would eventually drive him to his death.

”I'm not a wolf, really!” said sally suddenly.

”Well, who is it, then?” asked McCaber.

”Probably my Durelin,” answered Rikae. ”I always suspect she's up to something...”

”Hey, I know the feeling! It's quite terrible when one can't trust his own wife...” started Boro, but was soon silenced by a threatening glance from Mith's direction.

”It's even worse when you can't trust your child!” exclaimed Nogrod in anguish. Gwathagor looked at him, astonished.

”Yes, there's really something strange about Gwathagor,” said Volo.

”Aye, let's kill him!” agreed Greenie.

Nerwen smirked. ”I have an idea. We could use him as a battering ram... You know, to break the door.”

”Hey, that sounds wonderful!” said Boro enthusiastically. ”I volunteer! But I need some strong men to help me, come on now! Volo, Greenie... Nogrod, will you come too or does it hurt too much?”

”Oh, not at all, I'll come,” said Nogrod.

”Daddy, I think Greenie is a girl,” observed Macalaure.

**

The men took hold on Gwathagor.

”One... Two... Three!”

They swung him so that his head hit the door. The door didn't break, but a cracking sound was heard.
They swung him again. Blood was dripping on the floor.
When they swung him the third time, the door gave way. Cool, fresh air flowed from the outside. Gwathagor's dead body fell to the floor. A pool of blood formed about his head.

As the beggars turned to examine him, they noticed that he was still completely human. Not even a single hair of beard had sprouted from his chin.

The night fell.

**

Alive:
Nogrod the Agreeable, the leader of the beggars
his wife, Nerwen
elderly couple; Rikae the Kind
and Durelin
Boromir88 the Silent One, an ex-pickpocket
his wife, Mithalwen the Perpetually Sane and Serene
their children Macalaure the Guileless
and Meneltarmacil
Sally the Insufferable, a slightly mad crippled woman
Volo, a young widowed man
his child, the Right Honourable McCaber
THE Ka, a blind old woman
orphaned little Thinlómien
and her little sister A Little Green

Dead:
Tom Bombadil (ranger) - killed on Night 1
Goldberry (seer) - killed on Night 1
The Barrow-wight (hunter) - killed on Night 1
Gwathagor, the child of Nogrod and Nerwen (ordo) - used as a battering ram on Day 1

**

It is now Night 2. Wolves may kill. No posting here.

For those who are interested, Volo's vote counts as a vote (so failing to vote once again won't get him killed yet), but I didn't count it as a vote for either Ka or Gwath (not that it would have mattered anyway).
I'm ready to be lenient enough to count Ka's vote as such also, but from now on all the votes that are cast after the deadline, which is 7.00 PM GMT, don't count.

Leaf Night 2

Four wolves were running through the swirling snow, their breath steaming out into the dark sky. Tonight, there were no clouds. The moon shone brightly enough to cast their shadows on the ground. It was freezing.

”How much wood is there left in the house?” asked one suddenly.

”Not much, I'm afraid. We used it quite a lot yesterday.”

”Which is not surprising, given that it's ages since any of us lived in a real, warm house.”

”I actually find it surprising. Living like we did should have taught them thriftiness.”

”They are enjoying everything as long as it lasts.”

”Well, what I am thinking is that although we have it nice and warm now, what about tomorrow?” interrupted the first wolf. ”Remember that we won't be wearing our pretty furs then... And it will be a hell if we have to go to fetch more wood.”

”Don't argue,” said Death. She was standing on a high barrow and looking over the forest. ”I want to enjoy the landscape.”

”Hey, I got an idea!” said a wolf. ”We could make ourselves some nice warm clothes!”

”Of what?” asked another.

**

The room was full of sleepers. Their breathing was deep and their sleep looked comfortable and peaceful.

”I wonder how they can be so calm although they know what is happening here,” whispered one.

”But isn't it good if they are able to accept their fate?”

”Good for them. They are happy till the end.”

”They think it won't hurt,” said Death.

**

”Now, whom shall we take?”

”What about these?”

”Err... Are you sure? One is maybe a little too old, the other a little too small.”

”So what? I'm sure they are a good choice anyway.”

”Alright, then.”

**

It is told that geese have roused their masters if an attack is about to come, but unfortunately ducks don't seemingly have the same ability. Emily slept unaware on sally's lap when the wolves carried her to another room and put her on the floor.

Sally woke to voices whispering around her.

”I've got the knife.”

”Who brought the needle and the thread?”

”I did. Can either of you sew?”

”I could knit a hat of her hair, but I'd rather leave the sewing for you.”

”Is there enough material to make boots also?”

”Hey... what's this?” sally lifted her head and saw three white shapes in the darkness.

”Nothing, dear. Just sleep,” a familiar voice said in her ear.

”Give me a gag,” said another.

”Huh...? But hey, I know your voices... Hey... What are you doing?”

One put a gag in her mouth. Another cut her dress off her and took a knife. The third was about to clip her long white hair, but noticed soon that there was an easier way.

”Buddy, lend me that knife! I'll just take her scalp and then I can go there to knit and be out of your way.”

The last thing sally saw before she died of shock, loss of blood and cold was a wolf biting the furiously quacking Emily's head off.

”I can make this a tassel hat!” rejoiced the third wolf.

**

The night was already turning into a dark blue morning when the wolves were finally ready.

”What a beautiful coat this is! I must say I have excelled myself,” admired one.

”Indeed it is! But look at these boots of shiny shiny leather!”

”Plain gorgeous. And what about my hat! It's so soft and warm!” The third wolf shook his head so that the tassel with Emily's head pinned on it swung from side to side.

Suddenly, one of the wolves went pale.

”Did it possibly occur to either of you that we can't wear these clothes?”

”Eh? Why not?”

”Why not!? Surely the other beggars don't realise from where we got these, do you think?”

”Oh no. Of course you're right.”

”But we did beautiful work anyway. Maybe we can wear these sometime later.”

**

When the beggars woke up, they found sally's skinned and scalped body in the passage. The headless Emily was lying next to her. On the coat rack was a brand new leather coat and a grotesque white bobble hat with the duck's head hanging from it. Next to the wall was a nice pair of boots.

**

Am I the only one around? Shall I talk to myself? I can not stay indefinitely and may have to vote early tomorrow - so if you ignore me now don't you dare say I was quiet then!!!

I guess Sally went becasue she posted little and left little trace - but Aganzir and McCaber also had a low post count.

This gives a few possibilities .... there is a wolf among the quieter posters (statistically probable - but equally true that there will be one among the loudmouths). That Mc Caber had attracted enough suspicion for him to be a likely lynch target today and so if he is innocent the wolves stood a good chance of all surviving another day. That one of the lower number posters had posted something that might be incriminating which might be drawn attention to by that persons death. Greenie might be the likeliest candidate for that. So htat is what I am going to look at aswell as that vote mayhem.....

I'm not sure if agree with you, Mith. I'm not sure I can follow your logic on how Sally's death incriminates Greenie. And even as the low post-count Aganzir seems to be a wolf we can't unfortunately lynch her as she's the mod.

I think Sally might have been killed because quite many considered her innocent. Also, like Mith already said, her death leaves little tracks. But none of this means we should dismiss what she said yesterDay: I will have a little look at her yesterday's post when I have time and see if there's anything interesting.

Also, yesterday's voting was a bit odd. I'm going to have a look at it right now, especially as I think there might have been a couple of things I would have responded to had I had more time.

I'm surprised to see Sally dead, I have to say. What can we take from her death, apart from some warm clothing?

There's only really two things she did yesterDay, apart from being entertaining.
She defended Lommy from Menel and me, and she voted Boro on a gut feeling.

Boro, Lily and Lommy thought she was innocent (Boro repeated it several times even).

Nogrod, Durelin and Rikae thought she was suspicious, but none of them seriously considered voting for her.

Many said they were confused by Sally.

Sally’s death probably has the main goal to leave no track. I guess this is a good strategy in a giftless village. Nevertheless, it points towards careful wolves. Are they careful because it’s their nature, because they’ve been under strong suspicion already, or because it’s a cold-blooded strategy?
What I don't understand is: Why pick a no-trailer who causes confusion when other, less confusing, no-trailers are there to choose from. Maybe they thought her death would cause sufficient confusion, more than anybody else's death.

Both Boro voters are dead now. Does this point towards him being a wolf? I don’t think so. Sally went by gut when she voted him, so she would likely have changed her mind today. Boro was very sure about Sally’s innocence yesterDay and I’m not sure what to make of that.

I feel good / a little better about the people who have suspected Sally yesterDay (Nogrod, Durelin, Rikae), because to them she could have served as a future lynch candidate. I also think better of THE Ka, because she said she enjoyed Sally's posts and it would be cold-blooded indeed to kill her after that.

I may be blind, but poor Emily, she sounded off like an earthquack, I mean, -quake. And Sally too, it will be quite boring now being the only old wise cracking lass around. *sniff* Sometimes I think wolvies are unfair to our disabilities...


Ahem anyways, I have a bit of a question. Volo, if you changed your mind, and tried to retract a vote, why didn't you just edit it within your post, before you posted it?
No worries of course, but I am curious about your format, it seems somewhat of a signal to someone or something if you did a 'stream-of-thought' vote.
It doesn't seem something to take so lightly, now is it?

I'm also curious about citing Nogrod's early suspicions as a grounding source for your vote, could you explain your reasoning a bit more please?

That is all I have now, because I have a long day ahead where I won't be able to access a computer, but I will be back well before the deadline.
Sorry about leaving so early, but I promise I will be able to vote this time around and stop making the mistake of putting the game's deadline in my time zone...

And some people say my narrations can be grotesque at times...

I'm bending towards the same explanation as Lommy that Sally was killed because she wasn't suspected too much and her death seems to leave no tracks. But it still is kind of out of the blue choice. Maybe the wolves just wanted us to waste the whole Day searching for the (possibly non-existant) sense behind that?

But I'm up to see the voting as well first.

EDIT: X'd with Mac and Ka

YesterDay, Aganzir only posted very early in the Day, and very close to the deadline. ToDay, it appears like she's going to do the same. I'd say this is worrying indeed.

Gah ..yes for Aganzir read Greenie .... (if it ain't one Finn its another ) ..they all posted less than the mod which is always a little strange ... I meant that if Greenie is innocent she may have been left alive because her posting was more substantive. If she had been killed instead of Sally we would have perhaps looked at her posts and found a clue. So it isn't that Sally's death incriminates Greenie (other than increasing the probability) but that of the low posters, Greenie's death might have given us more clues.. or not...

However since Greenie presumably is sharing a computer with someone who posts a lot...there may be absolutely nothing in this...... I was thinking aloud...

Glut of cross posting .... interesting that you all suddenly came out of the woodwork any reason why you didn't break cover sooner? I mean nothing for an hour then a flurry in ten minutes ... cannot believe you all just arrived....

Ok, I reread late yesterDay posts. Result: I suspect McCaber even more (just look at his vote) and started suspecting Mith: she feels a bit dishonest and is treating Boro quite similarly as Rikae treated Mac in last game. (For those who don't know, Rikae was a wolf and Mac was an innocent and Rikae kept fishing for his trust by bantering with him and claiming his innocence quite loudly. I know Mith and Boro are good friends so I could very well see Mith doing something like that, especially as their in-character roles allow it so smoothly.)

Mac is confusing me. In any ordinary game I'd think he was gifted, because there is a streak of innocent aura in him, but he is wolvishly nervous. However, now the matter is more complicated... His late yesterDay post resembles lommywolf's posts. I do posts like that as a wolf and always fail to see why do people suspect me when I make them. And funnily, now I'm suspecting Mac for making a post like that. On the other hand, after rereading the post, I'm not finding it as bad as I did yesterDay. True, it's defensive but there are some good or goodish points in there and it gaves me a vaguely innocent gut-feeling. But nevertheless, it was quite nervousily defensive of him to post it at all in a manner like that so truth be told I'm quite baffled.

Nogrod - you semi-suspected a handful of people and said you'd elaborate if you have time. Do you still suspect those people and why did/do you suspect them?

Not sure I entirely agree. I don't think that a Wolf-Ka would suggest killing Sally, but she might agree with such a proposal, so in my opinion Sally's death does not exonerate THE Ka.

edit: xed with Mith's triple posting
