    The dwarfs slumps forward dead. As his lifeless body hits the ground something rolls out of one of his pockets. If anyone bothers to check they'll notice it's some sort of tinker, perhaps a clue to what this beggar was before he found himself on the streets.

    Do you know what a shit rope is, Bucketman?

    It's a rope, covered with shit that murderers and demons try to hold onto.

    You see, the shit kinda acts like grease; the harder you try to climb up, the tighter you try to hold on, the faster you slide down the rope, Bucketman.

    All the way to hell.

    You try to turn the tides on me? I thought we were fellow brothers at arms!

    Collin sighed. Another group of so-called aristocracy without half a ball between them to actually lead anything but their own sordid lives.

    Except for that mysterious entity who seemed to appear and disappear at his own whim....

    He hoped he wasn't going to have to lead the charge against these - demons, was it? demons, then - he so hated to be forced into a position of authority. Such lofty heights were beneath him.

    The good master Kendrick may not have made the most delightful puns, but you barbarians didn't have to murder him for it.

    If the rumors I hear are correct, Burter Brea was the leading bandwagon before the shift in public opinion. Cartagran plot, or something more sinister? I say there is only one way to find out: kill MrTlicious!

    Ok, I can't do hedonism bot justice, so I'm putting roleplay on the shelf.

    Anyways, we have these shards, and they need to be removed somehow for the village to win (or at least the acquaintance needs to be removed). Do vanillagers at all have this capacity? In other words, is there anything i can do to help out with this shard mini-game or do i just have to hope some dedicated role is able to take care of it?

    Also, i'm grudging whoever decided to kill bradicus because that's like, his fourth(?), day 1 in a row. Come on, folks.

    The Acquaintance will use his knowledge of the players of the game and select a certain number of people to have his 'shards' embedded within them. The Acquaintance wins when the only players left have shards. The Acquaintance immediately leaves the game when all shards are found/removed. Shards are removed upon death and by village or mafia special powers.

    this seems like we don't need to kill him? if, for example, he filled the village with shards and didn't pick anyone who became mafia, he actually has an incentive to have the village win.

    the whole point of the role seems to be negotiating and trying to finagle information out of him while he in turn uses disparate pieces of information to make sure his shard dudes stay alive till the end.

    I read the op over again and I did not see a stated village win con that includes killing the acquaintance, but I might have missed something!

    The Acquaintance is immune to everything. That's always been in the OP (I know, never read the OP etc.). His wincon (have only players with a shard be alive) only came a few days later, and is the only way to beat him. Unless there's some super-secret hidden mechanic only one of us knows about, in which case you should probably speak up right about now.

    So, as a dedicated champion to all things holy, I want to smash my mace into a demons face.

    Perhaps my mace will like the face of Butler For Life for two reasons.

    One, he is a dirty Team Up North Fan (irrelevant, really).

    However, he was part of the early anti-Megafrost vote, which is slightly more relevant.

    Slightly.

    That McCabre fellow was going on about something again. Rust glared at the man while tugging at the knots developing in his beard. McCabre was like so many other pompous, self-entitled buffoons responsible for the state of affairs in Underlund. Rust started muttering to himself as his thoughts spilled out unbidden, forming a rambling monologue from what should have been private reflections.

    There's a purpose for all things between Heaven and Hell, I'll warrant, but for every such role cast there's a one looking to go beyond his lot. Damn rat-buggering pricks, the lot of 'em! Nonsense like that's put the King in Yellow on the throne, and now look at the mess we're in. I tell you, Waple, this cannot stand. Summon the carriage, I must go to the parliament house and speak against this overreaching slime.

    Sometimes I have ideas for things.

    Burter "MrT" Brea -- the very face of hypocrisy. A man who will show one face to the world, while nursing far darker ambitions. A man who, when confronted by the 
    burning righteous rage of the people, simply slips away and allows another to bear the brunt. A man who time and again has shown that IF he falls to the side of evil 
    THEN evil will triumph. Burter Brea must die. I pray that someone finds this note. Cold death rushes to embrace me now.

    Austin stares blankly at the necromancer as he screams arcane rambling, only to be startled, falling back on her rump, when the artist-previously-known-as-a-corpse gets up to start walking around. "Huh... I thought I had seen everything," Austin mutters.

    The question i asked Munkus via PM was:

    Is defeating the acquaintance part of my wincon?

    to which he answered in the affirmative. Now, maybe i wasn't precise in my question, but it seems to me that the acquaintance needs to lose for the village to win. Finding the people with shards is going to be hard for non-specials, since they really won't behave any differently than nonshards. So, i'm not sure actively pursuing this goal is the way for me to proceed. I just have to hope it works out for me in the end.

    NECROMANCER? You label me based on seeing ONE of my skills? Do you call a mechanic a Lugnut Engineer? Do you call a chef a THING julienner? No! It insults their skillset! In much the same way that branding me a necromancer insults me.

    And I warn you, attempting to destroy me would be... A MISTAKE!

    No, no, no! Leave the necro-librarian be. He brought you back to wreak vengeance on those who wronged you. Now which dastardly Omerta thug was responsible for your sorry state?

    Hmm, so many choices. It's like trying to decide which bite to take first at the Glisternight feast. Ah, I remember the last one I attended...

    Information in the OP also suggests the demons have the means to locate and/or remove shards.

    While the demons remain, they can be a tool in defeating the Acquaintance.

    In the end, however, all interlopers will be destroyed.
