Dude seriously, all I asked was for you to post in italics if you're not playing. Stop being a fuckwit, it isn't nearly as funny as you think.

(Side with, as in, side against because I think she's killing people)

This is my defense, then. I have killed two people in this game. TWO. Why? Because I'm the sheriff, that's why. Misconception I just couldn't trust for some reason from the get go and I felt that Axerton was being suspicious. So yes, with my sharpshooting skills, I shot two mafia members. I would have rather not let you guys know my role, as it's dangerous for me, but I don't want to be killed now, especially when I've had pretty good luck so far with figuring people out. I can also tell you who I discovered to be innocent, if you folks would like.

Who knows. Certainly feels like it's dying...

This is the order I guessed in, since Boro asked:
Misconception - mafia and now dead
supersheep - not mafia
Iron Oxide - not mafia
Axerton - mafia and now dead
I is Grammar - not mafia

And it's not a tactic, this is me trying to save my ass because though I am not sure how many mafia members there are, I've probably killed more mafia than the rest of you.

It's not my fault you guys are accusing THE WRONG PEOPLE.

But I put up the best defense I have, one that is honest, so I leave it at that. I'm getting a little bored anyways, but you really will have no more sheriff.

Sorry guys, I wish I could say I've been really busy or something like that but I've just not been on the net that much. Anyway here we go!

Despite the murders and executions continuing unabated the townspeople of Everytown were all beginning to relax, which we all know was probably not the best idea, over the Christmas/Kwanza/Hannukah/Solstice/Ramadan season. Families got together, people ate food and exchanged gifts, it was almost as if this was a different town, one not about to be rocked by another grizzly murder. On the other hand, it even felt like the Mafia either had the good taste not to kill anyone over the holidays or that they too were spending the past weeks with their families, tearing the wrapping off of new brass knuckles and tommy-guns. Sitting down to a roasted stool pidgeon turkey, I assume this is how Christmas with the Mafia goes, but I digress.

Boro Bandito had been claiming that he was the medic for a while now, so much so that it got him off death row (apparently there is only one doctor in this town?). Whether he was or not is largely irrelevant now because evidently the medic hadn't saved anyone's lives and if Boro's claims were true, he also could not save himself. Just after New Year's Day, Boro was getting ready to be somewhere (though I have no idea where) when he heard a knock at his door. One of the few people with their wits about them in this town he went to the window instead and was surprised to see a courier standing at his door, holding a box of reasonable size. Cautiously Boro opened the door. The courier said that he was delivering a package for a Mr B. Bandito and that could Boro sign for it if Mr Bandito wasn't in. Boro signed for the box and tipped the courier a fiver, which was nice. The courier was just jumping into his little courier van when it nearly toppled over from the force of the explosion. The windows had burst outwards and everything in Boro's house was aflame.

As it turns out the courier company had long been suspected of being a Mafia Front business so the town Sherrif went to invesitgate. The Sherrif was surprised to find paperwork that was all in order and seemed to be completely legitimate. One thing did seem odd though, Boom Couriers apparently specialised in the shipping of explosives. As the Sherrif continued to look around the dark warehouse, raised voices were heard from one of the offices above. As the Sherrif got nearer it sounded like someone on the phone (or talking to a mute perhaps) as it was a rather one sided conversation. However it became obvious from the subject of the conversation that something illegal was afoot. Here is that the Sherrif heard:

"This town is a bunch of fuckin' rubes. We'll clear it out in no time. Yeah he's taken care of... Well then we better hope he was the medic like he said he was. Good work by the way, Boro fell for the package routine like nobody's business.
Hey! Don't go getting no cold feet now, this town is ours and soon every single one of those bastards will be dead. Now if you wanna back out that's fine with me but just so you know, you'll be sleepin' with the fishes, see?"

That was enough for the Sherrif. Bursting through the door, gun held high and screaming "Freeze! Police!" always worked in the films and this time was only slightly different because when the Sherrif tried it this time, even though it was very dramatic and the door gave way very nicely, Dark Flame was ready and shot the Sherrif in the arm. The Sherrif dived behind the couch to the left, only to find that there was no other furniture in the room aside from the desk that Dark Flame was sitting behind - it was all very embarrassing. As the Sherrif stood up, one arm raised, the other bleeding profusely and held close, Dark Flame giggled like a school-girl which, creepy as it was, was also a little embarrassing. Words were exchanged, too filthy to reproduce here but the gist of it was the Sherrif accusing Dark Flame of being Mafia and Dark Flame saying "No shit." Eventually Dark Flame did the whole "Now I'm going to have to kill you" Bond Villain type thing and a lengthy fire fight ensued, beginning with the Sherrif diving through the frosted glass window of the office and ending with Dark Flame being shot in the eye.

Apparently the Sherrif's word is enough for an inquest not to be held but there are still Mafia members left to execute so why don't you townspeople convene or something and let me know who needs to be killed in the name of justice.
