Title: Mafia 3 - Under the Moon
Post by: Black Sword on 07 Jan 2013, 06:47
(http://tindeck.com/image/jwyf/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/jwyf)

The village is in danger.

Strange happenings have occurred, night after night. Innocents have vanished, only to reappear feasting on their beloved families. Others have been discovered with horrific wounds on their bodies that indicate fire or water... or no wounds at all.

God has issued divine punishment against the village for allowing sin into their hearts. The nature of the enemy is unknown. The full moon draws near. In order to appease their all-mighty Father, they must rid their village of all heretics.

Meanwhile, in the shadows lurk their enemies. Who knows what will happen?

Under the Moon

Rules:
1. Days will last for 48 hours or a player receives more votes than half the number of players still alive to get lynched
2. Nights will last for 24 hours. Roles which require PMing the GM have to do so by this time frame else they don't use their action. Should you have a role with an action you wish not to use, simply have "ABSTAIN" as the title for the PM.
3. Roles of people who die will be revealed.
4. Posting is allowed in the night as well as the day.
5. Once a player posts in this thread, that post cannot be edited or deleted.
6. Lynch votes should be in bold and at the bottom of the post.
7. The player with the majority (one more than half the living players) get lynched and the day ends. Should the the day end before a majority is reached, the player with the most votes will get lynched. A minimum of two votes is necessary for a person to get lynched. In the case that there is a tie in the most votes, the day will end with no lynched occurring.
8. Dead men tell no tales (no dead players can post in the game thread or talk about the knowledge they gained from playing the game)
9. There is a chance that a player attacked in the night will take his attacker with him or escape his assault. Unless instructed otherwise, this chance is 1%.

*tries not to take the lord's name in vain*

We don't even know what we're up against, or who we have on our side.  I know it's night, but I think it would be useful if we have some kind of conversation before the day comes and we have to vote.  This time, whatever is after us is getting a head start.

For now, I'm keeping my doors locked.

We need to come together and protect one another. It isn't too late to prevent our brethren from allowing sin into their hearts - we can't change what is past but we can change the future. I will be spending the night praying for deliverance and I invite anyone who wishes to join me to do so.

Barmy, I will join you.

Dear Diary,

Things are getting weird in the village. I don't really sleep in the night any more. I'm too paranoid.

Strange things are happening. Nobody really knows what's going on. Nobody is safe. Or are they?

I suspect everyone.

I spend the nights sat on the porch, chain smoking and polishing my revolver. Six bullets. I only ever shoot five before I reload. Gotta save one for me just in case.

You never know.

You just never know.

Quote from: The Priest
"Fear not, people of the village. God is still with you. With his divine tools, I shall protect you, but only so long as you do not allow sin within your heart. The good shall be rewarded, the evil shall be punished. Let your heart be filled with His love and glory and you shall be spared. Let your heart be filled with blackness and with the power of God I shall cut you down where you stand."

(The Nasuverse is the universe of writings of Type Moon director Kinoko Nasu. There are a number of franchises but the unifying basis is the system of functional magic, themes, and concepts applied to the universe. Among the most fascinating is the concept of the Spiral of Origin (The Root, the Akashic Records). The Root exists outside of time, where it stores and archives information of all possibilities and events, past, present, and future. Of course, by giving it a name, you've actually changed the nature of it, so it's easiest to think of it as " ", or rather, the void, but even then it changes the meaning. " " is the best way to approach it.

The goal of magi (the resident magic wielders) is to reach the Root. All of their magic can often be considered an unintended result of their research, sort of how vaccination was a "my bad" by Pasteur. Of course, what I call "magic" is more like "magecraft" since it's an art that can produce phenomena in the world. True "magic" is the accomplishment of miracles, like the denial of nothingness and the operation of parallel worlds.

I think I babbled enough for now.  :-P)

do you think that none who died had the names of of their gods on their lips?

we must look to the evidence before us, and only to the evidence; people have died, and that's all that we know. leaping to mythological conclusions is naught but pure panicked speculation, which is more dangerous than any killer.

there is something foul going on in our town, but it is as much a part of the natural world as you or i.
Title: Re: Mafia 3 - Under the Moon
Post by: henri bemis on 07 Jan 2013, 10:37
Whether or not the threat is supernatural seems irrelevant, as long as we keep our heads about us.  Prayer doesn't mean we can't make decisions based on evidence, and if prayer gives some of us hope and strength, so be it.  No one has yet made any accusations based on superstition.

This is not the time to argue.  We need more information.  Whatever foul creatures lurk in the shadows are surely watching us, may already be among us, and may be looking for a chance to create divisions between us.

Everyone needs to remain calm. However you feel that you can do that, prayer, thinking, or otherwise, you should do that instead of trying to spread chaos and panic.

Personally I am choosing to pray for deliverance and for forgiveness of those who have fallen into sin. The words shared by the priest do not bode well for those who seek out evil, so I shall take refuge in my prayers.

I don't know what the bloody hell is going on here, but I am going to remain calm.
I don't know what or who killed the villagers, but I'm not going to say it was supernatural, be it werewolves, magic, or flying butts.
I need some time to think this all over, so I am approaching this rationally.
Now if you would excuse me, I am going to sit in my house, drinking my vodka and watch you all go crazy

Day 1

After a long and tense night spent in prayer, the villagers gathered in the square. The uplifting words of the priest soothed some tempers and healed some of their disquiet, but that feeling ended quickly enough. The priest mutely gestured his flock into the church, where a most sacrilegious sight met their eyes.

(http://tindeck.com/image/pqxx/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/pqxx)

Splayed on the altar is the body of none other than Barmymoo! A visiting friar, the holy man had two marks upon his throat that appear to be the result of fangs. His body had been drained of blood and contemptuously discarded within the home of God!

Quote from: Black Sword
Thou art the Friar.

A man who wanders the world preaching the word of God, thou are accustomed to speaking to the callous, the indifferent, and the hard-headed. Thou hath mastered the art of words.

During the day, you may use the phrase "I will use all of my powers to persuade you!" This will raise the value of your vote from 1 to 3. You can do this ONCE during the game.

You win if the Village is the last faction left standing.

The villagers exit the church and gather about to decide what to do next.

Dear diary,

Today a holy man died. He had a lot of pull in this town. There are lot of out-there views around here, but he always held sway and no matter how crazy things got he could even us out. I respected him. Dammit, I liked him. That's more than I can say for most people round here.

He was found dead with bite marks on his neck, a few pints short of a full blood quota.

I suspect everyone else is going to be blind to this, but it seems pretty clear to me we've got a vampire in our midst. At least one. You never know.

I'd better figure out how to make garlic bullets.

Still one real one in there for me, though.

Still one real one for me.

*curls her lip in disgust after surveying the scene* Holy men. Pah! They might have their uses, but we're facing something with the will of a man, even if not the form of one. A priest can't turn a knife, and can't turn back...whatever this is.

Well fuck this! I don't plan on cowering in the night without stirring some shit and hellfire up in the day. *looks around* Where in the bleeding hell is Cesium133? Haven't seen or heard a peep from 'em in at least a day and I don't like that!

the most obvious thing it looks like is a vampire, but is there anything else that kills like that?

Whatever it is, we do need a strategy.  Honestly, I was almost suspicious of Barmymoo - he was just so genuine.  And now I feel terrible.  I'm so sorry, Friar.  I fear past experience has made me cynical.

Post by: de_la_Nae on 08 Jan 2013, 17:37
Lots of things can kill like that.

But it was probably one of you, whether it was with your teeth or some sort of magic or something improvised. Not sure what angle they're playing...don't figure I know too many reasons to wipe us out.

That said I'm sticking by what I said earlier and getting this train started!

I vote we drag Nikolai into the light and give him what for.

And fuck all of you who'll want to string me up just because I had the guts to act and you didn't.  Calm and rational discussion never stopped a mass murderer by themselves.  8-)

We know they suck blood, or at least some of them do (though that's not very helpful to us, or at least I can't see how yet).  And we know that they decided to kill Barmymoo.  They could have picked anyone, but they picked Barmy.  The question, now, is why?

I don't have an answer to that, and it could be as simple as "why not?"  But it's worth exploring.

Well, of course no one is going to say "yeah, your argument against me is fool-proof!  I will die now!"  (except maybe Gareth, what with his saved bullet and all.  I'd implore him not to use it, but it's better than becoming vampopcorn, so respect). 

de_la_Nae said she was willing to hear other arguments, but it seemed like the general consensus was to target quiet people, so I understand the initial vote for Nikolai.

And I don't trust anyone at this point - my gut says anyone trying too hard to look nice is likely not, but, as I said, my gut lied to me about Barmymoo.  I don't know what to think.

In a place that is demanding you move away from sin, you fully admit to being corrupt. Forgive me, but that is an utterly stupid way to act. I'm sticking with my vote. And forgive me if my actions seem minimal to you, but I actually want to survive.

Tell you what I'll sweeten the pot since you don't know what to think: Gareth is sure as hell not innocent, but he's just another village yokel. I know that as sure as I know I'm not the killer. Nikolai, I don't know for sure either way, I just don't wanna sit back and wait for the bastards to break down my door without trying!

You and the others hang me out to dry, you lose an asset.

Also I guess I should point out that Barmymoo's the first to fall, and I know I heard you say while everyone was hunkering down last night that you'd join 'em in prayer. Hahahaha!

de_la_Nae, and everyone else, I was LITERALLY just about to vote for Linds, too, independent of what you just posted.  I know I can't prove it, but if our village is to survive we need to be honest with each other.  Something just isn't right.  re-read through the thread, and tell me I'm wrong.

If you are innocent, Linds, I apologize sincerely.  But I vote for you.  I don't believe you.

Linds, you're suggesting we kill somebody because they refuse to conform? Whatever, MAN, you're just part of the machine.

I'm just trying to save your souls. This isn't about conformity. There is no more machine. This is about survival. Survival of the pure of heart. de_la_Nae doesn't seem to even care about that, so why should she live when there are others who want to survive? Why should I encourage apathy when that's the opposite of our goal?

Now I wonder where that Unicorn is hiding?

I read somewhere that a group of unicorns is called a blessing. I don't know why, but that seems appropriate to bring up. Could be a sign that things will only get worse, rather than better...

I'll have to read what linds has been saying again to see if it's anything worth voting over (and that will be when I'm done beep booping for the day), but I honestly don't see anything wrong with de la nae. She may have a foul mouth and loose morals, but she seems to be actively doing *something*, which is more than what can be said for others. And if she is a vampire or whatever, she'll slip up somewhere later down the line as long as she keeps talking at this rate and THAT can be when we lynch her.

Yeah, no one dies if it's a tie.

I'm ok with that for now, but each night we're going to lose another villager, and if the bad guys start outnumbering us, we eventually won't have enough people to put up a fight.  And we don't know for sure if there's a 'hunter' type character that can also kill at night, or if that person would even be on our side, which means all we know for sure right now is that whoever or whatever is hunting us can be challenged during the day.  It might be the only time we can put up a fight.

But it IS still early, and a stalemate could give us more time to investigate without accidentally killing anyone innocent.

Also something I was thinking about is that maybe since we've been left so much in the dark about what is going on in the village, it's possible that our attackers aren't fully aware of each other either.  If that is the case they may not rule the night completely.  It doesn't bode well though that they were able to pick the friar off right off the bat though... I dunno, for the time being I'm going to just look for more information.

(Ricco didn't vote for anyone, Linds. It's actually a tie, so you're safe.)

Twas a grim day in the village. The villagers were divided into two factions, one in favor of lynching the morally dissolute de_la_Nae, the other in favor of doing nothing at all until more evidence came to light. It was a near thing, but it ended in a tie between the degenerate sybarite de_la_Nae and the righteous Linds.

With nothing else to do, the villagers filed into Church to hear their priest and pray for God to protect their village.

But nervioso DID vote for her (I think the pink on their avatars makes me mix them up, so I could see how someone else might).

Nikolai - de (1)
de - Linds (2), Evil (3), Nikolai (6),  ces ( 8 ), idont (10), Gareth (14)
Linds - de (4), henri (5), Gareth (7), ces (11), Uni (12), nervioso (13), Patrick (15)

No Vote - Gareth (9)

Double check me, but I have it as a 5-6 vote in favor of lynching Linds...

I was typing a post before night fell, but for the record what I had to say wouldn't have changed anything.

I don't know who my top lynch would be, but it wouldn't be either of these two. However, out of the two, I'd rather mistakenly lynch Linds over de_la_nae. de strikes me as someone that will call out other people's BS and try to keep us focused. Linds has only been praying and accusing the person that may be the easiest to accuse simply because they speak their mind the most. And while I believe in the power of prayer... it's clearly not enough and God is choosing to help only those who help themselves... so yeah, my two cents.

Currently, the GM is annoyed because he's not sure whose vote he missed. However, it's pretty clear that Patrick also missed someone's vote, as he stated his intent was to tie up the vote to prevent a lynch. The GM is sufficiently annoyed by this that if players do not put "Lynch <user>" at the bottom of their post, separate from the text and in bold, where it can be seen quickly for tallying purposes by all players, that vote will not be counted.

Needless to say, due to GM goof up and somehow still in line with Patrick's intent, Linds still lives. Call it the Grace of God.

However, since it was my goof up...

All right, can we honestly stop with the voting to purposefully tie stuff up? I feel like all it does is offer a way for vampires (or whatever) to throw a vote into the pot, look like they're contributing, and, in case the person they voted for gets lynched, a good excuse ("oh, but I just wanted to tie it up! How am I a bad person for that?").

Why not let whoever the most people actually want to see dead actually have their way? If it turns out to be wrong, we actually have a list of suspects to jump off of next day (because the chances of NO vampires being on a particular band wagon is slim). And if it's right, we're closer to winning. Can anyone tell me how this situation right now is any better than either of the two I'm presenting? Can anyone actually present a good list of people to jump start our night 1 conversation?

OOC: The thing is, the more ties we have, the more of a chance the killer has to, you know, kill someone that evening. Is there a high risk of lynching an innocent person? Yes, definitely. But there is also the trade-off that you might just catch the killer. People might think they're helping the village by going for ties; they aren't, they're just getting the next victim ready for the killer.

I love garlic bread.  love it.

In and out of character.

I see where the anti-tie arguments are coming from, and I really do agree that after the first day or two it's not a good strategy.  But when our risk of killing someone innocent is so great, and we know that someone will be killed at night regardless of what we do, I think it still works out in our favor.  But only for the first day, and maybe the second, when our numbers are high and the risk so large.  As I said, as far as we know, our only chance of taking out the baddies is during the day, and we shouldn't waste that.

I think riccostar made a good point, too - we're all in the dark about what the roles are, and it's possible that at least some of the villains/vamps/evildoers (I'm still not convinced we know what they are yet) may not know each other.  I don't know if it's true, or if that helps us, but it's something we should keep in mind, I think.

Vampires cannot enter your house uninvited, right? Well, isn't the church considered to be the house of God? I highly doubt God invited whoever is in there, so they probably barged in. And if they can barge in against God's wishes....

That or God entrusted Barmymoo as the doorman and well... they should have been more selective about who gets let in.   :-\

Alright, opinion on tying votes here.  If we strip the current issue in the town down to only daytime lynchings and night killings I believe that numerically, forfeiting the opportunity to lynch during the day would give the villainous camp the definite advantage.  However, there is a lot more to these situations than simple probability based off of these two actions.  In these situations everyone also has to take into account the duties of the active and passive roles, insight gained by analyzing rhetoric, and perceived intent based off the lynching vote records.  As this situation develops, we learn more and have more to base our decisions off of which has shown to be key to success.  Day lynchings without due grounds are certain to speed us along toward the end.  This means we have less substance to learn from and less time for our active role members to use their powers to guide us in this time of peril.  There is, for example, likely to be a villager with the role that is somewhat like the bailiff who inspects villagers to learn who they truly are.  The fewer days there are, the less people the bailiff gets to learn the role of which severely knocks the edge off of the advantage we could have gained from him.  The opposing villainous camp wants to guide this towards a swift and complete destruction of the innocent and we should not blindly assist them in this.  I encourage tying votes and non-action during daylight hours if there are no solid grounds to the accusations being put forward.

I'm honestly glad neither of our two suspects got killed today.  Ties aren't viable in the long-run, but I'm not all that interested in helping the whateverevilfucks in their mission any more than we have to.  They will kill someone innocent every night, regardless of what we do during the day.  We will have to make judgements.  But I don't think it hurts us much that we didn't today.

Alright, opinion on tying votes here.

You put it really well, ricco. And I agree on some of your points. But let me put it this way... if you see de_la_Nae and Linds as potential lynch victims and feel neither is a good choice, instead of moving for a tie, why not do this:

1) State that neither is a good choice and why you feel this way
2a) State who you think is a better lynch target for the town and why OR
2b) State why you think it's a bad idea to lynch anyone and vote No Lynch

Either way, you can provide an argument, give us an idea of what's on your mind, and maybe sway the town to your cause. And if everyone trying to vote had agreed on a different target or No Lynch, I bet you that would have been what won out in the end, easily (and maybe with less confusion...).

It's too easy to just try to tie and not say anything else. We get so caught up trying to buy ourselves more time by tying votes that we don't make as great of use of the time we DO have as we could be with arguments over who is evil. 

And if de or Linds had died, despite your attempt to move the vote majority, then at least we have where you stood and have a clean list of people responsible for the death. 

I'm fully against tying votes between people just to block the lynch. I'm only against inaction (no lynch) if other options weren't considered. I hope that makes sense.

I do it to fuck with people, and because I've chosen to play a character in these games because it's more fun. This time round I am playing a pacifist/pussy/weird war veteran/character who doesn't want anyone to die, so what he does is vote for ties, and yeah there are pros and cons on each side, and maybe my character will listen to them, maybe he won't.

I do it to fuck with people, and because I've chosen to play a character in these games because it's more fun. This time round I am playing a pacifist/pussy/weird war veteran/character who doesn't want anyone to die, so what he does is vote for ties, and yeah there are pros and cons on each side, and maybe my character will listen to them, maybe he won't. That was part of the long game I was going to play. Are making it a rule, or are we making it a rule?
As far as I know, nobody is saying that we should change the rules to prevent people from trying to tie the vote... but I also reserve the right to consider such votes suspicious and vote to lynch people who consistently try to tie the vote.  :roll:

I can't force you to do anything and wouldn't want to. I'm just stating why it occurred to me that all the vote tying seemed inefficient and why it frustrates me. If that doesn't convince you, then carry on.

Are making it a rule, or are we making it a rule?

Like you said, it's perfectly within BSword's rules that you can use your vote that way (whether it was intended to have this affect, I can't say). I'm not advocating a rule change, nor would I really want it at this stage in the game. If I was hoping for anything, it'd be some sort of unwritten agreement that votes would be used for who we actually want lynched (or actual no lynch votes). But that's not going to happen, so I'll let that subject drop, though anyone else who wants to comment, definitely should! Knowing which camp everyone is on as far as this topic is concerned may be useful.

there should definitely not be any kind of rule against tying a vote.

that said, i'm of two minds about whether or not we should be lynching someone every single turn. on the one hand it basically gives the mobsters/werewolves/vampires/whatevers free reign to do whatever they want. but on the other hand, i really hate making uninformed decisions, so i tend to be hesitant to vote for anyone unless i really think they're guilty.

I personally only vote for someone when 1) I'm playing a good role and I think someone is guilty or 2) I'm playing a bad role and I want to kill off more innocents (like in the werewolf game). If I don't know who to vote for, I don't vote. I also don't like changing my vote either. But these are personal preferences - I like to keep things easier for myself!

Day 2

Another dawn has come, so the villagers ought to have rejoiced and been glad in it. However, the gladness was gone before it even began. The villagers had noticed it instantly.

(http://tindeck.com/image/eftp/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/eftp)

Lying face down on the ground in a pool of his own blood on the steps of the Church was a man. His clothing was tattered, but his shield were still strong and his sword still sharp. His armor, however, had stood no chance against the strange blades that still pierced his back. The thin blades were too narrow to belong to a sword, yet too long to belong to a dagger. One of the villagers quietly noted that they seemed suited for throwing. Another found it odd how closely they resembled the cross. All felt there was something holy about them.

Finally, the dead man is turned over and is revealed as the traveler who had been staying at the inn. The villagers seek the man's identity and feel possessed by horror when they recognize the man as their overlord, henri beamis!

Thou art the Knight.

Thou hath heard the call of God and hath fought in the Holy Land against the heathens of Mahomet. Thou follow the path of chivalry and hath returned from crusade to discover thine lands in terror. Unrecognized, thou shall protect thine serfs from the evil that threatens thine lands.

Once a night, you may PM Black Sword with the title being 'Protect [USER]' with [USER] being a living player in the game. This action will protect the target from all murder attempts in that night. You cannot protect yourself.

You win if the Village is the last faction standing.

Battle: It is inevitable that you shall be targeted for death. As a trained warrior, you have a chance, however slight, of taking your assassin with you.
Against Dead Ancestor: 10%
Against Magus: 15%
Against ???: 5%

As grief and terror begins to make themselves the sole emotions of the crowd, someone screams and demands to know where Gareth is. Convinced they know the name of the killer of their overlord, the villagers break down the door to Gareth's house... and discover a new terror.

(http://tindeck.com/image/jwyf/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/jwyf)

Gareth's body has been incinerated. Only his hands and feet are left intact in that pile of ashes. Strangely, nothing else in his home shows signs of ignition. It's almost as if he had somehow burst into intense flame and then faded into nothing. But how could a fire strong enough to turn the bones of a regular villager to ash not burn down a house?

Afraid, aggrieved, and anxious, the villagers appeal to their priest to properly bury their lord and to soothe their troubled souls.

[please take the tech discussions elsewhere, it's hard enough to stay in character already!]

Once again, everybody keep calm. Gareth was a vampire? If he really was he certainly didn't leave any clues.. I'm not absolutely convinced.

We're, once again, sitting ducks, folks. I urge you to focus on the right issues! The only thing we have achieved so far is a pointless discussion on whether we are allowed to tie votes, which we are, because this is a democratic village (at least when it comes to lynchings..) and we have no rules which state otherwise. Sigh... we really have no way of winning this, have we?
Title: Re: Mafia 3 - Under the Moon
Post by: riccostar on 12 Jan 2013, 08:10
Wait, hold on, we learned so much!

We learned that we are up against at least:
Dead Ancestor
Magus
 :?
and that they all seem to attack separately but not necessarily in the same night (learned from the different fight percentages of the knight)

We also learned that we were allied with (but no longer):
Friar
Knight (we are likely no longer protected by anyone)

henri got hit by the Jebus Brigade by mistake.

it would also seem by the "holy" nature of this killer that it would be on our side and that the loss of henri was a mistake

I believe that Gareth was a villager.  The way his death was announced was solemn and without character reveal and his death itself was consistent with the fire and water injuries BS gave background about.  He could have easily been killed by the magus.  Also, assuming that the holy killer is on our side, Gareth being a vampire would mean that we have two night killers and the opponents decided not to kill last night.  I think last night was a big loss for us.

Ricco's correct. Gareth was a villager, not a vampire.

So we have vampires and magi... are they working together? Are they two separate groups that agreed to kill on different nights? Regardless, they both need to die... I'm just wondering how much time we truly have... I'm not 100% sure our holy warrior friend is even our friend... I mean, I'm not sure what henri could have done to arouse suspicion.

Fuck fuck FUUUUUCK!

You were right about Gareth. No need to doubt yourself, unless you're lying about the whole thing. With henri gone, I'm unsure there's anyone left to protect us, so you could be in huge danger. What do you have for night 1? That could be a good jumping point for Day 2 discussion.

Although people are dying anyways, intent matters because if they intended to kill the knight (or another villager) they are against us and they will only target and kill innocents however if killing the knight was just a terrible accident they are on our side and there is a chance of them killing a baddie at night.

The only path towards salvation is to prostrate yourself before your Lord. Let us pray together!

Post by: TRVA123 on 13 Jan 2013, 19:08
I doubt that an NPC is part of the killing faction(s?) Idk, there are so many x-factors in the game at the moment that we could be concentrating on, so I think that this line of reasoning is leading us nowhere...

unless we want to kill the priest in lieu of killing no one... which I guess might be interesting. But to suggest killing the priest instead of a suspect seems a but counter productive.

although the priest is about as suspicious as anyone else, given what we are currently going on...

This is a guess, but the priest seems to be a role and we'd have to know who the priest is in order to kill them.

But because I have no idea what is going on and I don't think I'll have much time tomorrow to check on the forums, I vote no lynch.

Same. Indicating interest in finding out the roles also doesn't make for painting a good picture for yourself, since I assume that the 'villain' factions all know each other (as they have in previous games), so pointing out that you don't know what's up when the enemy probably knows who their allies are... Gathering intel is going to be a bitch. I vote no lynch.

*stares at sky* Dear god, the celestial bodies have been moving awfully slow lately.  :-D

Theory 1: The Priest and the holy killer are one and the same. They have access to an intercom so they can send messages to us anonymously (or BSword just wanted to be dramatic and make us aware of their presence) and kill at night like a vigilante.

Theory 2: They are different people, with the priest being an NPC... or at least the priest should be considered an NPC for our purposes, becuase if they are able to do more than talk at us for our benefit, I'd rather not discuss and risk blowing their cover.

Theory 3: Who the hell cares, we need to figure out who's a vampire and/or magus! Unless the priest is a closet vampire/magus or a sympathiser, they're not worth killing. Unless they can't keep their weapons in their pants long enough to spare non-guilty parties.


One more thing, de_la_Nae... why would you check nervioso over linds, the person you doubted most yesterday and got half the village votes? I want to believe you and I feel like I almost do... but that little fact keeps me from doing so.

Indeed, your third theory appeals to me the most. Nothing so far indicated that we should focus on the priest. If he is a two-faced heretic, then it is under that face we will know him, and we can act in accordance.

I side with the others and vote No lynching today because I honestly have no idea what's going on and we need at least to stick together and not throw accusations around!

The fall of henri beamis, their overlord who had gone on Crusade and returned to protect them, seems to have drained the villagers of purpose. They gathered listlessly, trying to decide the nature of their enemies, or at least to figure out what to do next. Confusion, fear, and sorrow left them unwilling to risk lynching another innocent, so they chose not to act. What consequences will their inaction have in the morning? No one knows. They only know that even the house of God is no refuge, but at least the priest may uplift their troubled hearts as with his eulogy for henri beamis... and perhaps he will also perform the Last Rites for all of them. It is merely a precaution, for no one knows if they shall greet the dawn.

Day 3
Last night, the mood of the village was somber. The people gathered in the Church to bid their onetime overlord henri beamis farewell. He had died as he had lived, with his sword in his hand, fighting against the enemies of God. The priest was sorrowful above all others, weeping as he spoke of the paradise that surely waited for henri beamis. At the end of the Mass, the priest sequestered himself and spoke to no one. The villagers fled to their homes and locked their doors, tearful and afraid.

When the sun rose, the villagers gathered in front of the Church, noting a strange and acrid smell in the air. They quickly realized that de_la_Nae was missing. The motion that the foul-mouthed woman had simply abandoned the town never even occurred to the villagers. Instead, they went to her room at the inn, only to discover a new horror.

(http://tindeck.com/image/jwyf/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/jwyf)

The door to de_la_Nae's room is frozen solid. One unfortunate villager touched the door and had to be pulled off, tearing the flesh off his poor fingers. Even as he is treated, the other villagers tackle the problem of breaking down the door by deploying axes and fire. Once it finally falls, they discover de_la_Nae, a statue of ice when once she was flesh and blood.

The room itself is lightly coated with snow and ice. The strange tools and items de_la_Nae possessed take a while to identify, but eventually, the villagers figure it out.

Quote
Thou art the Rogue.

Thou art a man of many faces, none of great honor. A bandit, a charlatan, a scoundrel, a swindler, a crossdresser, thou have acquired much knowledge and are skilled in acquiring more.

Once a night, you may PM Black Sword with the title being 'Sneaking around [USER]' with [USER] being a living player in the game. This action will reveal to you the role of the target.

You also hold a smokescreen. Should you be marked for death and have no one protecting you, you will use your smokescreen and escape. The smokescreen can only be used once, and it only works for one kill attempt.

You win if the Village is the last faction standing.

The villagers retreat from the unnatural room of death and gather about to discuss what to do next.

I get a feeling we are supposed to lose our minds and start lynching each other. But we don't have a single clue to go on. At least the way I see it. We don't know how many they are, what they are, what we should look for. Or do we? Anyone?

Well, we've got deaths by fire and ice, which may be by the same person or not. And a priest who can kill people, but apparently they feel bad about killing the wrong person. And possibly a vampire? (There was a death by biting, right?)

So...other than that...I got nothing.

I can hazard a guess as to how many they are. Assuming (what I consider) a conventional ratio of 1:3 or 1:4 villains to villagers, rounded up...

We have 5 to 6 people among us that need to be killed. Good news is that nervioso appeared innocent to de... that's 12 people alive that we don't have a confirmed status on, meaning 11 people for each of us to choose (if nervioso is actually king vampire; magic godfather... whatever, we can deal with that later; there's still 4-5 killers left in my theory).

Also, assuming I'm right on the number of killers, it also means we are way closer to losing than some of us might realize.

The point is this: the odds of us lynching a baddie, even randomly, have gone up A LOT (and we're smarter than a random number generator, so don't think of it as actually being random). I do plan on voting before the day is over, but I want to weigh a few options before doing so.

On an unrelated note... Patrick, you've been saying the more the killers kill, the more evidence stacks up even without us lynching. What have you learned if that's the case? All I've got is that they've been remarkably good at getting our best people.

I am not one of the bad people. Why do you think I asked de to inquire about my role? Although it's convenient that I asked her to do that but now she's dead, because now I'm the perfect scapegoat. The only reason I was against her at first was because she was being overly aggressive and accusing people right and left. It looked suspicious at the time. If I'd really been dead set against her, I would have accused her again last round. So how about instead of voting out of convenience, we actually try to figure out who the killer is?

And because I basically want to save my own ass, I vote to lynch Cesium, only to negate his vote.

(I'm removing the formatting so there's less confusion or risk of a vote getting counted twice)

So... is this a third way you vote? Because you're not outright saying you think cesium is guilty and well...

I personally only vote for someone when 1) I'm playing a good role and I think someone is guilty or 2) I'm playing a bad role and I want to kill off more innocents (like in the werewolf game). If I don't know who to vote for, I don't vote. I also don't like changing my vote either. But these are personal preferences - I like to keep things easier for myself!

Is the problem that I'm using the voting discussion to possibly make an argument (I don't even think I made an argument... I asked for clarrification)? Because that discussion we had was huge and was participated in by several people. It'd be bad NOT to use it if it might help.

Or is the problem that it's being used against you in particular? Because it's pretty much unwritten law around here that what you say can haunt you later.

I'm confused. Shifting blame for what and to where/whom? Cesium isn't blaming me for anything, Games really just was asking a question/trying to get a rise out of me, but neither of them really seem to be blaming me for anything.

I was annoyed because that whole discussion wasn't necessarily in game, which is why I don't think it's really fair. Does that make sense? Like, it's something that should have been in the sign-up thread, but wasn't, and therefore I don't feel it's really fair game. It was about mechanics and didn't have much to do with this scenario.

And yes, I was being defensive because you were being snarky and it felt like an attack and, sorry, but a rather flippant one.



Also, since someone has made an accusation against someone else, I retract my vote against cesium. There's no point in keeping it up since it was purely to balance scales and I don't think he's guilty of anything. Yet, at least. (Note to Black Sword: I'm adding the strikes to my last post so it doesn't accidentally get counted.)

Looking back, I think other people were seeing that debate the same way you are. I wasn't, otherwise I wouldn't have wanted to continue that discussion in this thread (and would have liked it continued in the sign up thread). Wish I had realized it so I could make my intentions clear. To me, it wasn't so much a mechanics discussion as it was a 'where should we go collectively as a village' discussion, which would be fair game. But since it apparently wasn't clear and I don't think anyone playing would be the type to weasel out of a lynching through those sort of means, I'll try to not let that debate color my opinions too much.

And since the source of your reaction was mainly due to a communication gap between us, I'll have to toss it aside as well. So I think we're squared away there?

The (overly) quiet folk either...
a) Are a killer keeping their head down OR
b) Are a village person that is NOT helping the town in any way. They also make the killers' job easier, since it's easy to ignore a non-active villager and deal with ones that may actually end up throwing a vote against them, if nothing else.

With no decent arguments against anyone in particular, and a person who only seems to show up when their ass is on the line to complain, what would you seriously expect us to do?

And I'm sorry, but unless you can specify what exactly you expect that person to be doing in this situation, someone behaving too "normal" usually sucks as an argument. Though I guess it may be worth looking into depending on how night goes...

The deaths of the good knight henri beamis and the scoundrel de_la_Nae seems to have done to the villagers what the previous nights of terror had not: galvanized them. Indecision and hesitation had left the villagers paralyzed, but now there was a thirst for blood. No leaders had risen up to take on the burden of opposing their faceless enemies, but were they necessary? The villagers gathered around and voted to lynch the taciturn Nikolai. Nikolai protested once, sharply displeased that once again his honor was in doubt, but he was no match for the gathered villagers. They quickly gathered around the nearest tree, right outside cesium133's house, and hung him.

When at last they went to check his home, they discovered he was no more than a normal villager. Oh, how their enemies must laugh!

The villagers go to the Church to pray, trying to keep faith.

No real incentive? If it's not obvious, not speaking can get you suspected and killed (I think a number of us made that clear for a while). If that's not incentive enough, not speaking can help harbor the very people we're against. Cause if we leave quiet people alone, what do you think that encourages everyone, killers included, to do? And in a town where nobody says anything, you may as well be lynching by lottery. So yes, you are probably right, those people probably do feel that way. But those people need to think again.

This could possibly get me killed, but it feels like you are picking on the quiet ones out of convenience.

I specifically said night kills are a different kettle of fish. And that's how most people have been killed.

So if we want to discuss that... Since the killers try to stay one step ahead of us, they'll employ whatever strategy will keep them safe and, if possible, get the rest of us to turn on one another. That makes their choices a little more chaotic feeling, especially to an outsider, but they'd be foolish to kill off the quietest ones since they give them cover and are the least likely to be a risk factor.

So is talking more than absolutely necessary a risk of getting night killed? Compared to the alternative of remaining quiet, yes, probably. But keeping quiet hurts the town overall and our main goal is to not get the town overrun. Keeping quiet runs against that goal. 

So re-address your question, Linds with a complete picture of both ways you can die:

Not speaking can get you killed... Speaking and saying the "wrong" thing can get you killed... Why bother?

If you speak, even if you are night killed, you at least gave us something to work with and contributed to the war effort. You made it harder on the villains to hide and probably made them have to tell lies that can later be detected and used against them. You made them have to throw votes around and created patterns that can be analyzed. When you don't speak, you contribute to the town's paranoia that we already have in abundance. And you give the villains a chance to just sit back and off people one at a time.

Day 4

When the sun rises, dreams end and reality intrudes. Suffering is the only thing that can be done. The villagers gathered in their daily ritual, resigned to the inevitable. Headcount is taken. Two of their number are missing. Some wise fellow, conscientious of the shocks of the previous days, shares a swig of whiskey with the survivors to give them courage. The search begins.

The villagers walked past the tree outside cesium133's house and opened the door.

(http://tindeck.com/image/jwyf/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/jwyf)

A violent gale of wind burst through the door and assaulted the ears of the poor villagers. The villagers were knocked down even as booming noise left their ears ringing. Once they recovered themselves enough, they entered the now-creaking house. A strange, unnatural fog lurked within. When they finally discovered his body, it was completely unmarked.

After beating a hasty retreat from the unnatural demise of such an ordinary fellow, the villagers moved on to the house of the village apothecary, dr. nervioso. A somewhat anxious fellow, he was still a pleasant sort to have around. Braced for anything, or so they thought, the villagers opened the door.

(http://tindeck.com/image/pqxx/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/pqxx)

They had not been ready. The enemy had apparently chosen to use nervioso's death to send a message. The unlucky soul had ripped apart, joint by joint, his pieces used to make a macabre shrine of sorts. Most horrifying of all, there was not a spec of blood to be found anywhere. A brief search revealed nothing else about this ordinary villager, just some missing herbs.

Appalled, the villagers return to the square, deep in the grip of hysteria.

Hell, I don't want to see anyone die, but that seems unlikely with the full moon on its way. Here's my thinking: Out of the last three days, we spent two of them waffling and then killed Nikolai for being quiet. (Quiet. TOO quiet? No, just regular quiet, apparently.) Meanwhile the talkative types are dying in the night, picked off by one or several someones with awfully good aim. Our allies are falling around us and we've yet to find even a single one of the perpetrators.

I can't claim to have any strong evidence against you, Linds, but it seems to me that the time to act has come (as I suppose it tends to when one finds one's neck potentially on the line), so here I am. You escaped the hanging tree once before, and perhaps you will again, but I can't pretend I wouldn't be interested to see if you're really so innocent as you claim.

Riccostar, I can forgive a slip of the fingers. The voting to kill me, not so much. Maybe I should change my vote to you? But then we'd have a 1-1-1-1 tie for the moment, by my count. Would that be better or worse, after all the talk of ties lately?

I don't like voting against people when I have no idea what's going on and the past two rounds I didn't. If you want to kill your spiritual leader, then by all means kill me. I tried to warn you all with my sermons, but apparently those have done nothing. I tried to get people to come pray with me, but I was getting scolded for "doing nothing". Want proof? Here's part of the role that Black Sword gave me:

Quote from: Black Sword
Once a night, you may PM Black Sword a sermon, to be posted by him on your behalf. This sermon is your message to the villagers, to either build their spirits, damn them to hell, or simply express utter indifference to their fate.

So why am I voting for idontunderstand? Because whether you know it or not, I have actually been paying attention to what people have been saying and he's one of two people that recently changed their tune in regards to the religious aspect of the game and this made me wary. Also, someone is protecting him and as far as I know, our benevolent protector (henri the Knight) is dead, so it makes me wonder if there's a role on the bad side that can also protect their players.

and what does that prove? you could have easily made that up based on our earlier discussion as to whether the priest was an npc or not.

anyway; even if you're telling the truth, sermonizing doesn't actually seem to help us at all in this situation. and stuff like this doesn't exactly paint said priest as the most benevolent of characters either.

Quote from: The Priest
People of the town - I have warned you about filling your heart with sin. We are in trouble - what needs to be done is not to turn against one another, it is to look within and pray to God for guidance and forgiveness! If you will not change your hearts, then it is my God-given duty to cut you down where you stand. I will not let evil take control! I will protect you! The only path towards salvation is to prostrate yourself before your Lord. Let us pray together!




i'm not voting yet because i'm still 50/50 on the matter, but you have made probably the best case against yourself out of anyone.

Why do you think I asked de to inquire about my role? Although it's convenient that I asked her to do that but now she's dead, because now I'm the perfect scapegoat.

The mood in the village had gotten uglier. Accusations flew and several thought that the death of Linds would be for the greater good. Linds stood firmly, illuminated by inner conviction, and convinced the villagers that idontunderstand, a fellow who wore a strangely dapper hat for such a grim place, was likely one of their foes. His behavior had changed in the stressful times since the enemies of the village had begun their campaign of terror, enough so that his fellow villagers and Linds were distrustful of him. Convinced of the rightness of their cause, the villagers laid hands upon him and strung him up from the tree outside of the creaking house where cesium had died. However, the first limb they tried snapped in half from the weight. The second underwent the same fate. When they finally found one that stuck, idontunderstand met his fate.

When at last they went to check his home, to their despair they discovered he was a normal villager. The change in his behavior was surely no more than a symptom of his fear.

The villagers despondently gather in the square. Were they truly damned?

To: whoever our night killer is (village faction), it looks like you have at least a one in three chance of getting an enemy tonight if you decide to kill.  If you have any leads I think you might have to take them before it's too late.  The enemies might be able to kill twice a night and if that's the case they could have us stymied within a day.  This whole full moon business sounds like trouble too.  Aim true.

so, looking back at everything, i have to say i'm getting rather suspicious of linds here.

1) she asked de_la_nae to inspect her, only for de_la_nae to be killed fall dead before any inspection could be reported.
2) she threw suspicion on idontunderstand as soon as things were starting to turn against her, by making an unverifiable claim to be the priest. he turned out to be an innocent man.
3) she claimed that idontunderstand had been under someone's protection, however the roll of the priest as she described it contains no mechanism to gain that insight.


it's all circumstantial evidence, but it's the closest thing we've had to a case against anyone for this whole game. at the very least, i think she's hiding something from us.

Post by: Black Sword on 23 Jan 2013, 08:01
The ground shook as a great force assaulted the village. Mundane as they were, the villagers still understood that something great and terrible was happening. As is the wont of humans, they could not resist the force of curiosity. Silently, they left the dubious safety of their houses to see for themselves what was going on.

(http://tindeck.com/image/llwm/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/llwm)

J, a weak, anemic man, or so the villagers had thought, stood in the middle of the square. An aura of unholy power was draped around the man as he stood with uncharacteristic arrogance. The night air around him seemed to burn blood red. Opposing him was Game and Watch Forever, a strange tome in his hands, an odd circle around him, his cloak fluttering in the night, his eyes cold. Beyond them, the Church itself stood, devastated.

"Yod, Heh, Vav, Heh," GWF chanted. A blue circle adorned with arcane symbols appeared on the ground. Black mist and green light floated in the middle of the circle before both circle, mist, and light vanished to reveal a knight on a gaunt, winged horse. A demon! A true demon was in the village, summoned by one of their own! The villagers shook with terror, too afraid to scream or run.

GWF bowed to the demon; then he pointed at J. GWF opened the tome in his hands and chanted. "El Elohim Elogo Elohim Sebaoth Elion..."

The demonic knight charged at J, his lance aimed squarely at the man's chest. J merely raised his hand. The lance clashed against a barrier colored the same as the aura that surrounded J. Laughter emerged from J's mouth as red lightning flowed from the barrier and overwhelmed the demon. The knight vanished; where he had stood, there remained nothing but fire.

GWF did not even blink. Once more, he chanted, "Yod, Heh, Vav, Heh." Once more, the circle formed and a new demon rose. This one looked like a leopard that walked on two feet, with massive claws and awful fangs. The beast snarled as GWF did an obeisance and silently indicated J. He resumed his chant from before, paler than before."...Eiech Adier Eiech Adonai Jah Sadai Tetragrammaton Sadai Agios..."

The demon crossed the distance between himself and J at supernatural speed, but J was quicker. The unholy thing that wore the shape of a man grappled with the demon. The demon was forced down to its knees by J's strength. Soon, the demon howled and vanished, having betrayed its summoner and taken its leave.

Even this did not faze GWF. "Oriri animii!" White flames arose around GWF, taking on the faces of those who had died in the village. henri bemis, cesium133, de_la_Nae, Nikolai, dr. nervioso, idontunderstand, Gareth,  Barmymoo, all of them looked on at their conjurer, their faces twisted with agony, as if they had been forcibly denied the path to heaven and sentenced to a purgatory on this earth. GWF contemptuously gestured at his slaves and resumed his earlier chant, his face paler yet. "...O Theos Ischiros Athanatos Agla..."

J laughed once again, a sound fit to give nightmares to stronger souls than the villagers. The spirits of the departed were dispelled with an ease that made the villagers weep. It seemed J had bored of his game. The distance between the unholy monster and the magus vanished in the blink of an eye. J's hand sank deep into GWF's chest, impaling the magus' heart.

However, GWF had the last word. "Amen!"

The holy word fell upon J's face with the blood that flowed from GWF's mouth. It seemed that even demons obeyed it. The ground shook as an even larger circle appeared and vanished. The demon that stood before J possessed the winged body of an angel and the head of a wood owl. He rode a black wolf and carried in his hand a pointed saber.

GWF had done what any summoner might: summon a great demon to fight a great monster.

The great demon and the monster vanished from sight as they fought faster than human eyes could dream to follow. The villagers could just barely perceive the afterimage of the great battle. Houses were destroyed in the wake of the great battle as J used all of his unholy powers against something with even greater might. At last, with a sickening crunch, the black wolf broke J's back. The great demon thrust his saber and shattered J's head. The wolf ate the corpse.

Before the great demon could turn on the hapless villagers, the sun finally rose. Cut off from both its summoner and the power of the night, it silently returned to hell, laughing at the villagers.

Thou art the Dead Apostle.

Thou art a monster of the night, a predator feasting upon humanity.

You may take one of three actions every night.

Once a night you may PM Black Sword with the title being 'Feeding upon [USER]' with [USER] being a living player in the game. This action will either kill the player or convert them to your side as a Dead familiar. Converted players maintain the abilities they had whilst alive.

Conversely, you may choose to abstain from any night actions and be immune to night kills.

Elsewise, you may PM Black Sword with the title being "Hypnotize [USER]" with [USER] being a living player in the game. This action will allow you to control their vote for one day. However, if you attempt to hypnotize someone twice in a row, you have a 50% chance of failure and being revealed.

The Night of the Full Moon is Night 6. Under that moon, you cannot be killed and can choose to "feed" on three users instead of the usual one.

You win if you and your familiars are the last ones standing.

Conversion rate:
Magus: 25%
Villager: 10%

Battle: It is inevitable that you shall be targeted for death. As a Dead Ancestor, you have a chance, however slight, of taking your assassin with you.
Against Magus: 65%
Against ???: 65%

Quote
Game and Watch Forever. Thou art the Evoker.

A magus with great knowledge of spirits and demons, thou can summon these forces to aid thee.

Once a night, you may PM Black Sword with the title being 'Send spirits to interrupt [USER]' with [USER] being a living player in the game. This action will prevent the player from performing an action they would take in the night.

You win if the Coven is the last faction standing.

Battle: It is inevitable that you shall be targeted for death. As a magus, you have a chance, however slight, of taking your assassin with you.
Against Dead Ancestor: 35%
Against Magus: 50%
Against : 45%

9. There is a chance that a player attacked in the night will take his attacker with him or escape his assault. Unless instructed otherwise, this chance is 1%.


Every time there's been a kill, an RNG was run to see if the "battle" takes place. See the percentages along with the roles? The higher percentages means there's a higher chance of the "battle" taking place. It all came down to numbers provided by an unsympathetic RNG.

Double KO in an awesome way which the two now-dead players have voiced approval.

(The easiest way to deal with out of character comments I've found has been to start with OOC: and to go back into character with IC:. OOC: is generally a way to outright say whats on your mind and not disrupting the game, and also says that it can't be used ingame)

So we have at least one last enemy to deal with and at 2 days to figure out who it is.

Which means that this enemy is either myself, Linds, Riccostar, Unicorn, TRVA123, Bainibhe_Dub or Patrick.
Title: Re: Mafia 3 - Under the Moon
Post by: riccostar on 23 Jan 2013, 17:57
Guys I think we may have more enemies than we previously figured....

We have learned that there are more than two factions in this game.  By definition a faction is a group of people and we know there are at least two factions against us: the "coven" and the dead apostle and his familiars.  We also have to deal with whatever the :? is and assume all our enemies gain powers at the full moon.  Another reason I fear we may have a multitude of enemies is that the names of the specific roles given to the recently dead players do not match the roles of the battle probability.  For example, GWF was the "Evoker" but in the stats he was under "magus."  There could also be an elementalist out there against us who would also be a magus and part of the coven.  I think this is important to note because it could seriously hurt us if we get in the mindset that we're just out to lynch one person.

Title: Re: Mafia 3 - Under the Moon
Post by: Zingoleb on 23 Jan 2013, 21:42
OOC: I think the  :? isn't a faction so much as "if this person goes up against a fight with *anybody* (who isn't already defined), then there's this percentage that they can kill them."

IC: (Not much. Mostly just a kind of permanently horrified look.)

We know there have been at least three people operating in the town. Where we might have seen one particularly gruesome kill, might have been two different methods being used. But seeing as how we've seen two of those enemies just mutually destroy each other, than we know that there is at least one enemy left.

So one out of the seven survivors is the enemy.
Myself
Linds
Riccostar
Unicorn
TRVA123
Bainibhe_Dub
Patrick

We're at a stage where it is the most dangerous, there is at least one enemy left and time is running out. Assuming that its over and a victory for this final villain, they need only stay in the shadows while we wait and do nothing.

That said, I'm prepared to make one last choice. I vote to hang TRVA123. They seemed a little too excited in the aftermath of that battle, like someone whose two greatest enemies had just killed each other.

Seven villagers drank throughout the day to remove from their minds the horror of last night. Two of the neighbors they thought they knew had turned out to be two of the greatest enemies of this village and God Himself. Much of the village had been destroyed in their battle of mutual annihilation. If those two could be enemies, anyone could. Their thirst for oblivion was certainly not met by two kegs of bitter beer. During the search for the third keg, TheEvilDog accused TRVA123 of being an enemy of the village, which was met with scorn and counter-accusation. Their fellows were unable to muster interest in the feud, and even the two combatants gave up quickly when the third keg was finally found.

There is a note on the door of what's left of the Church.

Quote from: the priest
"God has forsaken all of us."

Day 6

The villagers emerged from the various buildings which had survived the battle between J and Game and Watch Forever. Each villager had chosen to fortify himself in one of those surviving buildings as best they could, unwilling to trust each other. They gathered in the square, eying each other askance. It is with grim forbearance that they once again recognize one of their number is missing. They head into the abode he had chosen and open the door.

(http://tindeck.com/image/pqxx/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/pqxx)

Unicorn had been torn to shreds. His body parts had been thrown about in a haphazard fashion, the splatters surrounding the limbs a clear sign it had happened whilst he still lived. Worse yet, it looked like someone had made a hasty attempt at cleaning up the blood... though one dubious villager voices aloud the doubt. Why bother to clean up now? Wasn't it more likely that the killer this time had....

Well, what if the killer this time had been thirsty for blood?

Shuddering, the villagers retreat to the square. Tonight was the night of the full moon. Whatever else, this day was the time to make a difference. If they failed....

Each villager hefted a weapon of choice, determined to survive somehow.

I honestly don't have one.  I feel kinda suspicious towards baindhe_dub but I kinda just feel drawn that way, I don't have a whole lot to back it up with.  I think you're the priest.  I don't know why but I don't think Patrick seems evil.  I've been neutral about Evildog and TRVA but I'll vote for one of them today since that's going to be the battle.

The same could be said for you friend.

I'm just going to say this now, if I do get lynched, I'm going to kick you all in the teeth before I swing.

It was their last chance to act before the full moon. It was the last chance to at least defeat one of their enemies. It was their last chance.

Those words echoed inside the heads of the villagers as they glared at each other. They quickly decided that the villainously-named TheEvilDog was their foe. The man objected violently and swore he'd kick them all in the teeth before the rope went around his neck. This did nothing to deter the villagers as they lay hands upon him and dragged him to the hastily prepared noose. TheEvilDog did his best, kicking and scratching at all in reach, but they were too much for him. While he didn't manage to hit anyone in the teeth, he did deliver a few good kicks to assorted jaws and skulls. As he slowly suffocated, he could only use his eyes to hurl his hatred at his fellow villagers.

When the villagers finally checked TheEvilDog's crudely-fortified shelter, they could only feel black despair that he had truly been nothing more than an ordinary villager.

Night came.

Death came.

Night 6
The Night of the Full Moon

The villagers locked themselves at sunset. It was going to be the last time they did so.

A hideous, familiar shriek shattered the night. It was the sound of death. Each villager waited for the dawn, the end of the full moon. When it came, it was time for the reckoning.

Day 7

When the last men standing met, they instantly saw that two of their number were missing. Now it was merely time to discover their final fates. The first place they go to is the house is Patrick's, somehow still intact despite the battle between J and GWF. The door was broken into pieces. Nerving themselves, they entered.

They find Patrick within. The poor fellow had suffered the same fate as Unicorn, though somehow, this time the killer had been far messier with its execution and feeding. It was almost as if an unspeakable hunger had driven the monster to act in greater haste. Unwilling to face what was left of Patrick, they left to find the other missing body.

(http://tindeck.com/image/jwyf/stats.png) (http://tindeck.com/listen/jwyf)

Outside the remnants of the Church, they found Linds. The one-time priest, however, had obviously undergone severe changes during the night. Her fangs were long tools to pierce flesh, her eyes the blood red of evil. The priest's body bore obvious sign of battle, with marks of damage from fire and ice and wind and curses without names. One did not need to be a hunter to know that it had taken a lot of killing to end the priest's life for good.

Thou art the Executor.

Evil does exist, corrupting men and tainting the earth, producing gruesome tragedies surpassing human knowledge. Executor, thou carries out the will of God instead of spreading his word. Thou possess what should not exist, the 8th Sacrament, and purge all things that are not part of God's teachings. There is but one thing thou must protect: the great name of God.

Once a night, you may PM Black Sword with the title being 'Use the Black Keys (http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/6/63703/1175214-black_key_1.jpg) on [USER]' with [USER] being a living player in the game. This will assuredly kill whatever you target. As you execute the will of God, you may judge one player a night for as long as you live.

As your public profession is that of a priest attending to the spiritual needs of your people, once a night, you may PM Black Sword a sermon, to be posted by him on your behalf. This sermon is your message to the villagers, to either build their spirits, damn them to hell, or simply express utter indifference to their fate.

You win if the Village is the last faction standing.

Battle: It is inevitable that you shall be targeted for death. As an Executor, you have a chance, however slight, of taking your assassin with you.
Against Dead Ancestor: 35%
Against Magus: 50%

It was a bitter battle within the Church, Linds, but you were no match for the Dead Apostle, J! However, unlike his previous victims, you were special. You survived the draining of your blood.... for a given value of survive.

Perhaps it was your strength of will. Perhaps there was something special about you, deep within your soul that made it possible. Or perhaps it was a secret, forbidden wish you denied even to yourself as you stubbornly pursued righteousness. But you have now been turned into a Dead familiar, one who can with time and blood grow to the level of a Dead Apostle.

For now, you are much weaker than your parent and master and obey his commands. Your power is at his disposal. As a faction, you can kill once a night. Your victory condition has also been changed. Now, you win if you and/or your master are the last ones standing.

Should your master die before you, you will be liberated from his control and gain certain powers in addition to those you already possess.

These include:
As a new blood drinker who has not yet learned to control the thirst, once a night you must PM Black Sword with the title being 'Feeding upon [USER]' with [USER] being a living player in the game. This action will either kill the player or convert them to your side as a Dead familiar. Converted players maintain the abilities they had whilst alive.

The Night of the Full Moon is Night 6. Under that moon, you can can choose to "feed" on two users instead of the usual one.

Conversion rate:
Magus: 10%
Villager: 5%

With that, there is only one villager left alive and no way for his village to win. Perhaps if he begged hard enough and swore his soul to them, he might live to see another dawn?

The Mages Win!

Just to point out that what kills the village more than anything else is the inaction that seems to take place when it comes to voting. While it might be understandable for the evil villagers to want to tie the vote to save their own necks or steer the vote away from themselves, but in the case of the normal villagers, they're ignoring their only weapon to defend themselves. Yes, innocent people might be killed, but that is the inherent risk of the game, you have to survive and there is a price for that survival.

The villagers had six chances to lynch their enemies. But looking back, they managed to lynch two people over six days. That's four wasted chances, which could have been used to narrow the suspect pool. And that's why the game is 3-0 for the killers, wasted chances.

Riccostar, you better fill my shoes well.  :-P

Good game everyone! And thanks to my fellow magi, it was great working with you, even if it meant I had to get taken down.  :-D

And seriously, I can't agree more with Evil... use that voting power! Make your arguments and make your vote accordingly. Don't let fear of being wrong cause you to freeze. It's seriously what the evil faction wants. Well, except maybe this time, since I know I wanted the town to rally and take down the mysterious evil faction I wasn't a part of. XD
