    But seriously, if I get killed for posting too much yet again I will just give up.

    ... well granted, that one time that was the cover excuse for the fact that I was targeting a mafia member and they wanted to eliminate me, but still!

    The plan was set. It was to be an all out assault on the castle. Well it was more of a small fortress then a castle, really. But it was to be done exactly as had been planned and practiced for weeks. The Saxons knew that if they could but get to one man within that building than all their troubles would be over.

    At least until winter came.

    But it was swift and fast the attack, but all at once, they knew something was wrong. Raynar was the first to fall, his back riddled with the arrows of his own friends. He had been told not to wear that purple cloak, it made him look a fool. But he had worn it never the less, and he had fallen for his folly, a fools mistake or a foe’s clever plan?

    The attack proceeded on, but in the night, as the lit arrows of populist justice rained down upon the fortress’s walls, the spies from the Norman lines crept into the camp. They knew who they were looking for, but every man and beast and woman here wore a cap with a feather in it, and green leggings and clothes to blend into the surroundings. They were after peter... Robin Hood. They nodded and split up, but sadly, their knives did not find Robin Hood.

    One of the stealthy spies in Saxon territory slipped into the silent night and slid his sword into the sheath of the soft belly of the sleeping Baldric, who was brave as brave could be, but alas would battle no longer the bullies from across the sea.

    The Norman killer crept deep within the camps’ firelights, he could blend in as best they could, until he spotted, as he hoped he would, a tall and lumbering man too easy to dismiss. With silent skill and flair unknown he raised his crossbow and took his aim. The bolt left home and flew through the air, straight as the voice of Little John came through the night “Fear not, Aidan, I will protect ye with my life.” How true that was, but yet how poorly timed. The bolt was not for Aidan’s hide, but for Little John’s soft insides.

    The towering man fell and the camp became a thunder, a whirlwind of activity as they wanted the giant man lumber for his last breath the bolt buried so solidly in his massive throat. The Merry men gathered, to figure out what to do next, but there were some who did not join, they also had been slain at night. One with an arrow, one with the blade. Wamba and Ealhild would never again show up to fight.

    Dawn was rising to meet a new day. And new challenges began were others now lay. How will Robin and his band of merry men rise to occasion and make free this land and their friends?

    Well, it's possible that we have another guard, but we're going to need to be careful with any village leadership that might come around. At least we still have firepower in the form of vig kills. And even better, no sign of any third-party serial killers. It's a straight fight in this game.

    But lonelyahava did mention that there might be one or two oddball roles. Since this game is touted as being mostly vanilla, and the roles aren't going to be too out there. Maybe busdrivers or roleblockers at the most, nothing like cultists, thralls, millers, or even more enigmatic and unique roles.

    Just a friendly suggestion, but you should try some google docs or something similar, Mr Blarney. Tends to make public spreadsheets easier.

    Oh, oh wait, in character.

    Hrmph, Little John has fallen. Tis a sad day for this lot.

    Facetious, Ill warn ye, but you are making me a bit suspicious now. Might ye be a traitor and perhaps the Lord saw it fit to send this chill to tell me so? Besides, everyone knows God hates a Norman.

    Aye, it has been suggested to me a number of times in the past that I use Google Docs for my spreadsheets, but I have found it a bit slow, and some of the options I use in Excel (namely striking out past votes while keeping current votes untouched) are not available in Google Docs. Since most seem not to have a problem with downloading the Excel spreadsheets, I have not found the need to change my procedures. I did recently change over from 2003 to 2010 out of necessity (new computer), but I don't believe that's changed anything.

    Maybe a bit of a story will lift your hearts, Sit around yon ale-barrel (though keep thineself away from the cheap peasant swill, methinks tis not water he has diluted it with...

    On my travels, a rumor of a great and powerful magician up north caught my attention. He wore a large, pointy hat that ended up low enough on his head to hide everything but his eyes- like a wild beast's, they were- pale yellow and so small, they almost looked like slits. When he was angry, twas naught any man could do but cross his eyes and pray to not get struck down by the hand of God from a clear blue sky, or one might be found encased within a block of solid ice in the middle of summer, or roasted like a lord's dinner during the harsh winter. His magick robe was an unknown bluish fabrick- riding high enough to cover his nose and bury his arms within the thing's sleeves... but the power he wields would put old Merlyn's beard in a knot (if that girl he's with hasn't done it first, but that's another story...)

    One of his favorite tricks was to go riding with his most loyal companion- a youth in red armor, with hair that was as bright red as the fires of Hell itself must be. They would go roaming through the forest, looking for brigands and highwaymen to ambush.

    Once found, they would goad one of the men into attacking one of them, and the gifted mage made like he was turning his hand. T'would cause one of the highwaymen to blink his eyes as he brought his sword down or fired his arrow- only for them to find out he'd attacked someone else- his own companion. Though the remaining men of low moral standing would stand around, the warrior in red would then take a few steps forward, swing his myghty swerd, and step back, watching as somehow his enemy was covered in slashes and would fall to the ground, disabled or dead. A brief celebration would take place, during which time the bodies of the foul vagabonds would be searched, and everything interesting they carried claimed as spoils of battle and trophies made of usable equipment.

    Now, what was that spell the mage used... I think it went something like "Indyan trailith, greyhoundicus, busdryverio!"

    ...or not. If that had worked, yon town fool would have switched places with yon sheriff, and 'twould be very bad if the sheriff ended up covered in the contents of a chamber pot instead of yon fool.

    Alas, I see no evidence of a mage powerful enough to cast the busdryver spell around this battle-scarred land. Perhaps that might change, but as for now, I believe that you owe me a plate of your best bread and cheeses, as well as a tankard of your best ale- provided it is not from yon cheap barrel you keep in the hole underneath yon privy.

    Hmm, Facetious's activity last night was somewhat suspicious, but on the other hand, seems a little too obvious to me. Much like in that other world of brass men, my impression is that his actions are not born from malice. That impression may change, of course, but for now I'll reserve my vote.

    Really strange thing that happened yesterday: Zandracon, Warban and Daius are all tied up and then Blarney comes in and votes for 38th Doe for insufficient activity?

    That didn't make a lot of sense. If inactivity is the target, Zandracon's sitting right in front of you.

    I don't want to advocate voting out our remaining spreadsheeter right now. But I do think Zandracon makes a solid choice for today. It can give us leads based on yesterday's vote.

    Zandracon did in fact make two posts yesterday, one more than 38thDoe. But now that you mention it, I think I may have gotten myself so used to Zandracon's lack of activity that I'm beginning to overlook him. 'Tis something I shall need to look into.

    Hmmm. The death of Little John is unfortunate, but if we're going to be losing any specials I suppose losing our guard is the least damaging.

    There was such scattered voting yesterday it's gonna be hard to find any patterns; might be worth looking through MrBlarney's spreadsheet though.

    After the loss of the guard, it doth appear that the Saxons were somewhat dismayed. But there was still a chance that thier skills would be able to locate and begin to eliminate the Norman threat. As for me? Having no battle with either side, I shall simply answer to the wind- and that where it takes me.

    Of course not! Tis simply the manner of speech I use. I have no quarrel with either the Saxons or the Normans- being neutral can be a wonderful thing sometimes.

    Therefore, my goal is simply to survive and ensure that the tale of what happens here gets out to be known throughout the countryside.

    It should not be taken as a death wish, friend.

    But if ye truly have one, simply flirt with yon pretty serving girl at the bar there. I doth think that the last knave who tried that ended up with sores all over his... coinpurse, if you will.
