Why would I be serving Shapers? Their goals are not mine and vice-versa.

*stares at you blankly* You... don't believe in Shaping? That's like...not believing in gravity! Or this chair! Or my paintbrush! (It's at my home. I swear.)

The one thing about Shaping is that it doesn't stop to exist whether you believe it or not. I have seen Shapers create creatures beyond your wildest imaginations. One can only wonder what they might accomplish given enough time...

*leans in conspiratorially* Besides, I think it would be unwise to anger someone with so much power as the Shapers by speaking ill of their believes.

I never said it wasn't real. I'm just not sure if it's...  the proper way to go about things. If you haven't noticed, I'm new around here. But as of right now you seem to be screaming "I killed the infidel!"

Now that I think about it, I am probably putting myself in danger by just associating with you, and I tire of this conversation.

I humbly request from our Shaper overlords that Mtmerrick be removed from this world.

You already revealed yourself as a crazy man and who else but a crazy man would do such a despicable thing as what was done to poor Gareth over there.

That may very well be true, but I feel you are now scrambling for arguments to support a decision which you already made. A person dies and you are like "Oh, alright, the crazy professor must have done it".  :psyduck: You locked in onto me, instead of looking for other candidates. The wise move would be looking out for who had a motive to kill Gareth, not to assume the act happened out of madness.

Undoubtedly, we have few viable suspects in this horrid affair, and even fewer motives. However, I'm inclined to believe Loki. He's crazy, there's no doubt about it, but to simply say he's a suspect because of that, no, I can't accept that. Yet.

I'd more likely believe you were one of the killers ChaoSera and seeking to throw Loki off the gallows to cover your tracks. I'll be keeping my eye on you.

Four does not a majority make. In this game, it's half the number of survivors plus one. So, that'd be about 5 people.

 Loki, you were pretty quick to turn on mtmerrick.  He hasn't really done anything suspicious, but I can't tell if you're actually just nutters or if you know more than you're letting on.

And Nae DEFINITELY knows more than she lets on, but she doesn't seem to have any ill will towards anyone.

Loki, you were pretty quick to turn on mtmerrick.  He hasn't really done anything suspicious[...]

Dude what? You might accuse me of many things, but this is probably the one with least substance.

a) He was the one who was quick to turn on me and the first to throw accusations around after we found the corpse, without even discussing anything prior, or so much as stating a reason. I will, however, for his benefit assume, that my ... unorthodox believes were the reason implied. Speaking of which, anyone mind if I align the corpse northward? It makes for far better energy flow.
b) I was not the first to turn on mtmerrick. TheEvilDog was, which is a bit suspicious by itself, now that I think about it.
c) I debated with mtmerrick for quite a long time before dropping an accusation on him. (OOC: Okay, now that I look at it, it aren't that many posts, but it seemed more at the time.) And I will admit that my main reasons of suspecting him are his eagerness to lynch me, consisting both of quickness of decision and insistence once confronted. What TheEvilDog's reasons are, I do not know.

As a sane man, I might be willing to retract my vote for mtmerrick if I am presented with a more sensible alternative. However, I am not much in favor of lynching GWF in absentia without giving them the opportunity to explain themselves. So for the moment, my vote stays where it is.

*sigh* I subconsciously assumed that since you wouldn't believe me if I denied it, I needn't even bother. Fine.

I hereby deny all of the following:
* having killed Gareth
* being in any way being responsible for his death through other means
* having hostile intentions towards him in the past or present
* having knowledge of who killed him


Do you feel better now? If not, then why make me jump through hoops?

Now, answer me, mtmerrick and ChaoSera: Did you kill Gareth?
