I couldn't agree more! That was the main reason behind our kills in this game, keeping it nerve-wrecking and intense and not going for the "easier road" but actually picking out people whose death didn't tell anything or didn't actually further our cause.

Of course sometimes when the going gets tough one tends to go for the winning with guts but basically I have seen that sleeping overnight helps a lot and in the next morning one is much more at ease and purely enjoying once again...

I have tried to change my style a lot recently and in the last game I almost managed to do it but in this one I failed miserably. I'd like to see myself posting much less but observing things with the same rigor I can when I'm at my best. Like reading as much but saying a quarter of what I tend to say normally.

Let's see if I have time for the next one if I could pull it then... But it looks bad as we are approaching the national matriculation examinations and it will mean a host of work for me...

---

But thanks everyone, once again if I haven't made a joint thanks in the first place. This was really a hectic and interesting game. Unlike some have said this really showed why WW is worthwhile playing: and I'd say the same thing even if I had been lynched toDay - or if we lost or whatever - or if I was an innocent losing this one as it really was quite challenging. Just fun and nice work for the "grey cells"...

Believe me, if it was that fragile, it wouldn't be here anymore at all.

It's envy for sure, old man.

Rikae and Lommy took that as you giving veiled instructions to your packmates on how to vote– like we wouldn't have discussed that at Night.

True.
We've been through a heck of a lot worse - a WW game isn't going to break us up. (It can still make for an unpleasant time, though.)

Ah, and Durelin was as innocent as a newborn babe, after all, wasn't she?

Actually, I took it as a veiled gloat/encouragement to comrades.

It's also– apart from my not having much time this week, like I said up there– the reason why I decided to try for an ordo-kill instead of the somewhat safer course of lynching Dury yesterDay when she came under fire– or Nogrod later.

I mean, we'd planned things all along so we could all safely lynch each other if need be... but when it came to it I thought, "Nah, let's see if we can bring this off."

Have you no pity?

Though, that would be quite interesting, all three wolves sharing a computer, plus probably very deadly as communication and plan making would be all too easy.

Though, don't take it that bad. You'll find it odd at first, but once you settle in your fur it's quite fun and you can't wait to be one again in another game.

Ha ha ha. Once tasted, I'm sure the seductive power of evil wolf-ness will consume me completely. Then there will be NO going back...I have to savor my virtue while I still retain it.

Okay, so you amuse a midget and her pet duck, aka two poor, bored college students. You really need to learn to let people stroke your ego. :P

Well, fortunately I can see at least one good thing in the two of you not playing in the same games. I will be laughed at less: last Saturday, Agan was visiting me in Noggie's place and I accidentally said "Rikalaure" when talking about Rikae and you can imagine how much the two of them laughed at me.

"Slips" are really a wierd thing. Having been accused of letting out slips in the very game somehow lessens my believe in them, but to me WW is probably more of going by gut feelings and then writing highly subjective analyses. In that case things that can be called slips do come out handy. But it sure is frustrating that you're accused of them when Innocent.

Just coming back to this for a while...

This was really a game I won't forget. Our team was just marvellous and everything went as we planned in the end... But that doesn't mean it was easy. On the contrary.

It was a tough decision to leave Rikae alive the last Night of the game. I had a bad feeling about her coming up with the truth - or with Lommy doing it. When Rikae opened the Day by saying that her only suspect was Greenie and as she had now turned innocent I must say I doubted our strategy for a moment and indeed went on to "kamikaze-mode" trying to wield the interest on me as both Rikae and Lommy started suspecting me. At that point I was quite sure one of us would be lynched and that I would be the one against the firing-squad. So I tried my best to just puzzle you others about my fellows and tried to defend myself quite ready to go.

And then people started voting... and I couldn't believe my eyes!

Oh the heart-rate...

And why Werewolf is so much fun! I mean just think of the kicks you can get from this...

Remember I wanted to kill Rikae on Night 1, for being too dangerous?

*cough* I think I deserve a bit of credit there, for deflecting suspicion onto third parties... "You're right, Rikae, Nogrod and Lommy could be in it together... I need to rethink on Lommy... Yes, Nogrod and Menel are suspicious... I've really let Menel slip under my radar..."

And even so, both Lommy and Rikae came within a hairsbreadth of guessing the whole thing!

Indeed! Those were hair-raising moments!

Hopefully my quite consistent suspicion and "quasi case making" against Nerwen helped to confuase as well...

But it was sooo close...
