In case any of you die tonight, I'm stealing your stuff.
If I die....no, you can't have my stuff and so help me I will haunt you all to death if you try to take it!

*considers GWF's statement*

"yeah Ok. If I die you can have my pants."
Argh! No! If the pants move, I will have to recalculate the perfect arrangement all over again! And don't get me started on how much the blood spilling would change it!! Blood is one of the most basic manifestations of life energy! If it is just... spilling around, the whole energy flow changes!

*breathes*
*calms down*
Look, just don't move the pants, don't spill blood and arrange your flower pots at home into a dodecadon, but only if it's a Monday. Then everyone should be fine.

Warning - while you were typing the arrangement of the universe has changed again.

Argh. Back to the drawing board.

No thanks. I don't like violence, and even if I did, if we're up against someone who can kill a shaper, what good would a sword do me?

You're accusing this man of witchcraft for wrapping a saw in chains?

Jokes and shenanigans punctuated the night, the villagers attempts to keep a light atmosphere going during a war sustaining them. They banded together, moving from place to place in a group to make sure they stayed safe, but one person stayed behind.

Dawn broke over the once beautiful city.

Gareth's body was laid out in the street, badly mutilated. If there was a fight, he didn't put up much of one - his knife was unsheathed, his body covered in stab wounds and severe burns, flesh and armour burned away, melted from what could only be an acidic spell. Very little on his person survived the attack, except for a few papers, stating opinions of the sort that get one killed. He was, in fact, a Trakovite, a small, radical group of rebels who believe that Shaping is dangerous no matter who wields the power, and his death, bloody and merciless, showed the dedication which he showed towards the cause.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOT GARETH! HE WAS ONE OF THE GOOD ONES! (In so much as he was always good for a few jokes)

WHO WOULD BRUTALLY KILL SOMEONE LIKE THAT? WHAT KIND OF INHUMAN MONSTER WOULD ACT LIKE THAT?!

And I'm a little suspicious of Mtmerrick, insisting on know where de_la_Nae was, seems like someone wanted a secret meeting, despite what they might be saying. Mtmerrick for a lynching.

What no! I didn't know where Nae was, I just didn't want her to get eaten by wolves out something, which at this point I don't know if she has or not. *sadface* I mean seriously, who runs out into the woods, alone, at night, with a murderer on the loose?

(unless Nae is the killer? Unlikely, I think)

...what? There are bound to be a few Shapers in this city. And our fella here had

papers, stating opinions of the sort that get one killed.

Of course some Shaper would be out to get him, but that's not me.

Heck, if I could Shape reality to my will, do you think I would be running around with a paintbrush?

(Okay, sometimes I forget it at home. (But then I would still be able to, you know, Re-Shape that darn barstool to be yellow. Life would be much quicker that way.))

(OOC: Sorry if I clashed with any lore. Being new to the setting, I am still a little bit fuzzy on what Shaping can or cannot do.)

I never accused you of being a shaper. But you being a shaper fanboy/sympathizer/servant would make perfect sense.  That's motive rift there.
