Brinn -
I don't think what I'm advocating is the easy way out for the village (nor did I say "Frodo has to reveal on Day 1" or anything like that, for the record). I do, however, think that the fun, and challenge, of the game depends on everyone throwing all their effort into playing the role they are given as well as they can. In dueling wizards ww, everyone is a potential "Frodo". If everyone used that as a reason to play only for themselves and not for the side they found themselves on at any given time, the game would break down entirely.

She doesn't have any votes yet - eh?

Also, the one who reached the most votes first dies - no double lynches.

Maybe I missed something, but what has a vote for Durelin (who had no vote before) to do with preventing a double lynch?

Okay, so for the record I'm okay with either a Mac lynch or a Brinn lynch, though I'd prefer Mac obviously. Lommie is the one I'd really like to see stay, as she seems pretty innocent to me. If Brinn's lynched I'm not going to complain, but since I'd like to keep her around for another Day so I can get a better feel for her I couldn't vote her in good conscience. *shrug* I dunno, it's ice cream time now. Back in a couple minutes.

I was about to ask the same question actually. It seems like too much of a throwaway vote, or is it just me?


Okay, really ice cream time now, before it becomes soup time.

Adding another candidate makes no sense, so I'd say

Lari
Gollum
Aganzir
Durelin
Brinn
Lommy

I have a gut feeling that he's suspicious and a gut feeling that he will probably turn out innocent, if that makes any sense.

We still have some 45 minutes, right? My head's obviously not clear anymore, so I need some time to think. I'm sorry again for blowing up, I guess getting used to my horrible class schedule has made me hypersensitive. I just felt rather offended for being initially suspected due to my absence and then being told I shouldn't have signed up at all if my RL is more important. That sort of comment just makes me want to drop out because of course RL is more important than WW.

But I don't blame any of you for suspecting me for being overly-defensive; I was. I sometimes let my emotions get the better of me and I shouldn't have let them affect my gameplay, but I did.

So it seems the top candidates now are Mac, me, Gollum, and Lommy. Of those, I find Gollum the most suspicious with half of his posts being banter...but he only has two votes right now.

Who's left to vote? And most importantly, can double lynches occur?

I think it was: no double lynches, first one to reach the maximum votes dies.

I'd actually prefer to see Gollum go than Lommy, I think. I could switch my vote, if you want to lynch him.

I would really like to avoid voting Lommy.

She and I have both 4 votes, Gollum has 2. Brinn, if you want to vote for him, and Rikae would consider retracting, I would vote for him, too (even though that would mean lynching him to save myself twice in a row).

I understand. I'm a team player and I always try to do what's best for my team. It's more fun to work together than alone. But I guess the struggle I'm having with Frodo is that while he's on our side now, if he gets turned he has to play for the other team and do his best to help them out. So I wonder, does Frodo prepare himself in case he gets turned so he doesn't become an easy target, or does he not worry about it until the scenario actually occurs. I would imagine that playing a loyal ordo, but being able to switch sides quickly without being spotted is the best way this role can be played. But I'm not very familiar with cursed roles, so maybe I'm completely off on this.

EDIT: Xed with Mac and Rikae

Because half of his posts are banter. And when he finally gets down to business, he doesn't exactly provide much in substance. Can't say I like his vote either. He was around long enough to write 30 posts...and all he can come up with is a random vote for me?

Can someone explain to me why my Frodo-posts are suspicious? I'm just trying to psycho-analyse the role, that's all. But I've never taken psychology before, so maybe I should just stop.

Well, I, for one, have a pretty selfish reason for keeping Mac around. While he's werewolfing, I get to eat all the ice cream.
It took me forever to convince him to play another game with me, and I don't want him voted off so quick.

Besides, Gollum doesn't like rock music. That's reason enough to lynch him.

--Lommy

++Gollum

In case I don't live to see toMorrow, I'll leave you by saying I still find Nerwen and Beregond creepy.

All bandwagons and vote changes look suspicious one form or another. But what was so logical about the voting 15 minutes ago?

Well, I, for one, have a pretty selfish reason for keeping Mac around. While he's werewolfing, I get to eat all the ice cream.
Hah, that's a good enough reason for me.

Off to take my bath...

There was at least some justification for the votes. Then everyone suddenly started changing their minds and switching votes and it all looked very bandwagonish in my opinion.

“Kill Mac!” Legate cried, waving one of his herring in the air.

“No get Lommy! Wait, no kill Gollum!” Rikae cried out. “I get more ice cream if Mac lives.”

“Brinn's a monster and very cranky. Send her to the gallows.” Gollum yelled.

The villagers were really at each other's throats. Since they discovered wraiths among them the gloves had come off and no one was playing nice anymore. Though no one had ever expected to turn on their neighbors, but now it was time. Someone had to die.

Gollum, he's all talk, like he's trying to hide something.” Brinn said.

“He's an easy target.” Rune rolled his eyes.

“No, it must be Gollum!” Mac cried out.

The villagers picked up their pitchforks. Gollum backed away from the crowd. “You've all gone mad! I'm innocent!” But the mob had spoken.

The traveling weapons salesman had backed himself up against Mirandir hog pen. The villagers advanced, some wielded hammers, others pitchforks, but all were armed with rocks. No one was sure who threw the first stone, but it hit the accused between the eyes. He stumbled backwards into the hog pen.

In the excitement of the day no one had bothered to feed the poor beasts. Now it seemed as though dinner had come to them and it was still warm. In their hungry frenzy the hogs rushed for Gollum. The stone to the head had disoriented him for a second, but he didn't regain composure fast enough to move. He lay flat on his back, hogs swarming around him.

The hungry animals tore into their meal. Gollum screamed in terror and pain, still trying to get to his feet, but the hogs were overpowering him. There was no way their dinner was getting away. The villagers gathered round to see what was happening.

One of the runts of the herd had been bullied out of his spot. He hovered close to the pen's fence, a piece of Gollum's eye stick on the end of his snout. Some hogs even had bits of the victim stuck to their backs. Blood and organs were spread all across the pen. When the animals finished eating all that remained was a few scraps of flesh stuck to the bones. One eye remained in Gollum's head, it was wide in horror.

Yet nothing happened. He had been innocent.

Shasta went home that night feeling distraught. The day hadn't exactly gone as planned. One innocent was dead and three wraiths were still at large. Shasta decided to consult his astrology texts and maps to calm his nerves. However, upon entering his house he realized something was off.

Grabbing a broom, Shasta went to investigate the whole house. “Hello? Has someone come in?” As a con artist Shasta expected to make a certain amount of enemies in life, but even he thought his home would be safe.

From an upstairs bedroom something stirred. Broom in hand, Shasta climbed the stairs. He kicked the bedroom door open and jumped in ready to assail the enemy. Nothing. The house was old, perhaps the floor was creaking on its own. “Yes, surely that's it.” He said aloud, answering his thought. But he knew that wasn't it at all. There was a presence in the room, one he knew he was to be afraid of.

Out of the shadows a figure moved. Shasta turned ready to fight. Another crawled from under the bed. A third appeared from the closet. They said nothing, but they shrieked. It was blood curdling and terrifying and Shasta didn't even have time to add his own screams.

~*~*~

The next morning the villages assembled, minus one. Upon learning that Shasta was gone a search party went to check out his house. They found Shasta in a bedroom on the second floor of his house. It looked as though he had been practicing sword eating.

An impressive broad sword had been forced down his throat, nailing him to a rocking chair that sat in the corner. Blood stained the floors and trails of dried blood ran down the corners of his mouth. Shasta had done nothing to offend anyone and yet he had still died. Bet the stars didn't see that one coming.

I like how Gollum is both dead and alive. Decide that Mith's idea for phantom last game was too good to not use?

Kidding, kidding. Anyway, I have a vote tally. Give me a minute.

Poor Gollum...Being eaten alive by hogs can't be a pleasant way to go.

Not that having a sword shoved down your throat is much better.
