    Oh, I close upon you Sir Dr. Worchworth L. Himblebrah, Esquire, Duke of North Yorkshireinghamton Abbey, of the East-Himblebrahs. The numbers are not in either favor, yet. Begin the worry Sir Dr. Worchworth L. Himblebrah, Esquire, Duke of North Yorkshireinghamton Abbey, of the East-Himblebrahs the end is nigh.

    Or at least it would be if I could do anything about it. I challenge you to a duel, Sir Dr. Worchworth L. Himblebrah, Esquire, Duke of North Yorkshireinghamton Abbey, of the East-Himblebrahs, at midnight (EST) and we shall see who the honor belongs to.

    So if you love games and I love games... Why are we not playing... **sees the forum** OOOOHHHH Yeh!

    Aha! Surely a duel is the best way to decide this. I propose we all vote somewhere else so that TrueNeverborn and I may settle this like gentlemen.

    so is the implication here you would kill someone based on a secret they wrote before the game started?

    It would be funny if only the votes towards a player's given name actually count.
    I mean, the mechanic probably exists for some reason, even if we have no idea what the names are for yet.

    Sir, you besmirch my good name. The real coward has revealed himself. He challenges me to a duel, and then attempts to form an angry mob to remove me. How then shall we have our duel? Hmm?

    You sir, are the coward, and a rabble-rouser.

    I really keep wanting to say Mongol hordes for some reason, but I'm pretty sure that they never met? So I'll go with... Gandhi's nukes.

    Lack of money: Legions sack enemy villages, get money. Win.
    Ghandi nukes: Too emaciated to function properly. Win. Worst/best case scenario, irradiated super legion. Double win.

    So you don't have to include them in a vote. It doesn't mean they don't have another purpose.

    You are the one calling off the votes, hence my calling you a coward. I say let them come, hopefully for you you long named bastard of a turd farmer. As for the Duel I recommend high moon, 23 paces with a colostomy bag of small pox.

    You'll see!

    If another player and I both submit that we want to reveal our secrets, our secrets are in the same category, and the other player's secret is chosen instead of mine, can I submit my secret the next night?[/quote]

    No. The secrets being used in narration are first come, first used. if there is a double up of types, the secondary one is nulled and voided.

    I'm still confused about the secrets. If I post the one I received, "I wet the bed" for example, do I also have to identify whose secret it is for it to have an effect (TRV in this example)? Or are we shooting in the dark vis a vis revealing secrets?
