    Is it too late to decorate the tree?

    Forgot to do that yesterday.

    Oh yeah, I'm gonna be largely inactive starting in a couple hours for a day or two. Going to visit my grandmother's for the holidays.

    I might be able to get on for a bit if there's internet at the hotel, but otherwise it's just going to be voting and making poast for activity from my cell phone.

    Since I need too make vote now, I think from looking at the vote records I'm curious to see what color my good friend Aleggis bleeds. He's also been pretty under the radar this game.

    I think he has a fairly strong chance of being mafia.

    Haven't gotten back yet into the habit of checking PA frequently

    As for the vote, I think Retabais a good vote for two reasons: 1. He is not me and 2. failed to vote yesterday and mafia seem to be missing a kill.

    Orkrampus stood behind the counter of the Panda Express located in the food court. He was consuming copious amounts of Moo Goo Gai Pork and Kung Po Chicken straight from their pans, as the restaurant’s owner laid on the ground knocked out and unconscious. Orkrampus knew the Mall Inhabitants were coming for him and felt it was time that he did something for himself. He had been a loyal Krampus minion, he felt deserving of more respect than he got. The Ork had fashioned himself a “Krampus” suit out of demon mask, pieces of a satyr costume and rug samples from Sears. The ol’Brute even got himself a little basket to fling over his back, with little cabbage patch dolls inside. But he was never Krampus’s favorite and now he was going to face the wrath of an unwieldy mob. As he looked to the entrance of the Food Court, he saw their torches- he knew it was his time. He wiped the secret sauce from his mouth and pulled an elf leg from his basket. Orkrampus was gonna go out his own way.

    Meanwhile, Harold the Mutant had been admiring the various decorations that now adorned him. Harold had been affected by the apocalypse in a strange way: he had been partially turned into a tree. That is to say, he was effectively, a Christmas Tree Man. That was when the LAW came.

    Judge Cane approached the tree-thing carefully , he firearm brandished and focused on the mutant. The mutant called out ” Come around to where I can see you.”, Cane yelled at him to turn around.

    ” Yes, you're right of course, I completely agree. Or I guess WE completely agree... me and Bob that is.”
    ”You are found guilty of three counts of loitering. You have been sentenced to death.”
    ” I've been literally rooted to this spot thanks to Bob for maybe twenty or thirty years... I can't even remember anymore.”
    ”So you think you’re a hotshot, huh?
    ” I swear if I try real hard, I can see all around me like my eyes are in every leaf on every tree.”
    ”I said 'hotshot'

    A projectile suddenly burst from Cane’s gun into Harold’s mouth and burst open (no Freudian imagery here,folks). Harold‘s head suddenly blew up from the explosive round and the rest of him was set ablaze. Cane turned his back before he could see the tree burst into a massive fireball. As he walked down the halls, he heard voices calling him and chuckling “I am the Mall”.

    The Judge was walking through one of the complexes massive connecting tunnels, when suddenly a bullet burst his spleen. He immediately fell to the ground. Several shadowy figures approached him, their faces hidden behind Halloween masks and swat helmets. Cane held up his hand in protest

    ”WAIT!”

    The figures looked confused and turned to each other. Cane looked past them in anticipation. After five minutes, the gang members shrugged and simultaneously opened fire on the Judge. THE MALL IS DEAD.

    ”Mr.Mann” a voice echoed out near the maintenance room. A lone mannequin was sitting at a computer console watching various security cam feeds, when suddenly a ghastly figure appeared on one of the monitors. He gasped, when suddenly he felt a hand on him. “You’re finally mine” he heard from behind him. The mannequin couldn't turn around fast enough to see the figure, the trigger being pulled on a gun being the last thing he heard. The mannequin’s hollow body fell lifeless on the security console.

    I'm a neutral that's probably not going to meet his win condition, so I don't particularly care if I die to the vote because I'm going to lose anyways. I've basically been trying to get people to promise me stuff they can't keep all game and have been failing. Agree to do outrageous things for me today, at least I'll have a bit more bragging rights at the end of this all!

    Anyways, Assuran has a good vote record, Alegis was a competing wagon. I'm guessing the last mafia is Sir Fabulous.

    Not a whole lot I can say in my defense because all I got was voting out INANTP.

  • Rawkking GoodguyRawkking Goodguy Registered User regular
    Alegis could still be mafia I guess but probably not since he has privately expressed some concern for choosing me being the wrong choice and if he were mafia all he'd really have to do is sit back and wait for a win. Super style points to him if he turns out mafia but I'm gonna call him village.

  • Rawkking GoodguyRawkking Goodguy Registered User regular
    Oh yeah, last point in my defense. If I'm mafia I'm super ballsy for starting a wagon on Aleggis. It's not out of the question for me to do that as mafia but even I tend to minimize my vote record by joining bandwagons.

    One of them had been behind the chaos of late, but it was uncertain as to who. ”The GigaGifted” was surrounded in mystique, a figure seemingly born from the sheer will of consumerist greed from within the Mall. The group speculated that he was a spirit gone rogue. The spirit meanwhile dismissed such thoughts as ridiculous as the destruction of the Mall or Christmas for that matter was of little concern to him. This didn’t stop the other three and soon Jesus lead the group in a prayer to send the spirit back to Black Book from wince he came.
    After the ritual was complete and The GigaGifted banished from the Mall. A wry grin crossed John Deathnon’s face.

    “So you are the real deal then ,eh ?”

    ”A pity this world isn’t big enough for the both of us, mate.”

    He smirked as the ghoulish spirits of War Harrison, Paul McPestillence and Ringo Starr emerged from another plane of existence to tear the very fiber of Jesus’s being apart. A clap was heard.

    ”Bigger indeed”

    Jasper Stone walked over to Deathnon nonchalantly, his hands in his pockets.

    ”It’s a pity, I think in another word- you and I could have been allies.”.

    John gazed at him confused, when suddenly he felt a revolver push up against his chest. As Jasper pulled John closer to him and whispered ”Sadly, even you can’t survive this.".

    He pulled the trigger and The Beatle fell to the ground. A look of disbelief on his face. His spirit bandmates similarly in a state of shock as the lead singer of the apocalypse fell to a mere agent of death.

    ”On the bright side, you’ll live long enough to see the DeadLands

    As Jasper claimed the mall, the clattering of bats could be heard throughout- as the agents of death welcomed in THE NEW ERA.

    You are: the Gambling Elf
    You were once a (sometimes) hard-working elf, helping Santa spread Christmas cheer to people all over the world. In recent years though, you've gotten into a different kind of spirit: the spirit of gambling. In particular, you and your buddy Steve bet on the odds of an apocalypse wiping out most of humanity before Christmas. Luckily, you won! Unluckily, money isn't as useful as you'd hoped it would be when there's nobody else left who wants it. It's a good thing you made that dodgy pact with the Possibly Malevolent Spirit Thing you ran into a while ago; at least now you can gamble against the best that the afterlife has to offer...

    When the game begins, you start with FIVE Spirit Coins. Each day you must choose one player not mentioned to you in a PM, and predict in the thread that they will be eliminated from the game that day (by any means other than the vote). When you do this, bet one or more Spirit Coins in a PM to the host (if you do not specify an amount, you automatically bet 1 Spirit Coin). If your prediction is correct, you will receive a 2:1 payout. Note that only your first prediction each day will count.

    Each night, you may exchange Spirit Coins for one of the following gifts:
    • 1 Spirit Coin: add/remove/modify one line or sentence of that night's narration. Your edit cannot add, remove or modify any formatting or names.
    • 2 Spirit Coins: guard one player from attacks.
    • 3 Spirit Coins: target one player will a kill.
    • 6 Spirit Coins: ???

    You must bet at least one spirit coin each night. If you fail to, suffer gambling withdrawals and are removed from the game.

    Abilities
    You start with 3 elves, and can send each on one of the following missions each night:
    • Deploy Elfcam!: Small and wily, you'd normally be sending the elves out to sneak pictures of the hot moms waiting in line, but now you can use them to find out what other people are up to! This works as an action seer.
    • Cover for me! : The elf will sit in for you while you go for a smoke, thus taking the brunt of whatever is coming your way. Will protect you from a vig, but the elf dies in the process.
    • Placate with Presents! :Kids these days are loud, obnoxious and greedy. Sometimes the only way to save yourself is to jam a present into their mitts and send them on their way before they start hitting you. Send an elf to grab something from the mall and wrap it for you to hand out. Instructed to grab the first thing they can find, you never know what's gonna be in the present, but that's not YOUR problem, right? As long as those pesky kids are out of your hair!

    The Romans waged Christmas as a liturgical feast. Spain had Zwarte Piet, a companion of Saint Nicholas. Hitler tried to secularize Christmas, bringing the holiday back to its supposed winter solstice roots.
    But Christmas never changes.

    In the 21st century, Christmas was still waged over the cheer that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of Christmas were also its weapons: candy canes and cookies. For these resources, China would invade Alaska, the US would annex Canada, and the European Commonwealth would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining happiness on Earth.

    In 2077, the storm of world Christmas had come again. In two brief hours, most of the planet was reduced to coal. And from the ashes of Christmas devastation, a new civilization would struggle to arise.

    A few were able to reach the relative safety of the large underground Presents. Your family was part of that group that entered Vault Thirteen. Imprisoned safely behind the large Present bows, under a mountain of stone, a generation has lived without knowledge of the outside world.

    Background:For too long, the other Winter Holidays have been ignored and spat upon by the Christmas supremacists. Holiday has taken it upon himself to spread the holiday cheer of the Winter celebrations to all, except the Christmas supremacists because fuck those guys; especially, the ones at Fox “news”. Holiday fancies himself as a sort of modern day festivities Robin Hood, taking from the well to do and giving to the have nots. He's just not exactly sure how he can apply this principle to winter holiday equality, but he's sure to come up with something. Unfortunately, Holiday is very bad at anything he does because he gets easily distracted and fails to remember what he did.

    • Fuck Persecution Complexes: Holiday doesn't like Christmas Supremacists because they falsely believe there is a war on Christmas. Anyone who mentions a “War on Christmas” or something similar is immediately role-blocked. It is up to you to call the hosts attention to these instances as otherwise we’ll almost assuredly miss it.

    Dead Pickings: Every night, you can follow someone around hoping they die "of natural causes" to see if they leave behind any goodies. If they do expire, you gain any targeted abilities they had in addition to your ability to "scavenge".

    You are: NAUGHTY,the Christmas Elf

    Before the Apocalypse, you worked in Santa's Lab with Nice.Back then you were a "good" elf, but things have changed. The destruction of the world has changed you and you wandered off the path of Christmas-ology. You are embittered and tormented, Santa's teachings no longer ring true and you see the world for what it is. A despicable cesspool seething with chaos. One where only the deceptive can survive.

    Powers
    • A Friend is Need Is A ???: Despite straying from the path of Santa, Nice has stood by your side through thick and thin. You are masoned with Gizzy
    • Santa is Dead: For reasons perhaps unknown even to yourself, the New World Order has made you a compulsive liar. You can never tell the truth in a post and must always lie.

    You are: Naughty and Nice

    Both of you were formerly Christmas Elves up at Santa's Workshop. When the apocalypse happened, one of you went insane. Whether it is an extreme case of denial or just lost grip with reality, one of youmust always lie. The more resilient of you two must always tell the truth, being the loyal good elf to Santa in the end.
    Powers:
    • Elven Comrades: You are masoned together and know you can trust each other.
    • Honest to Lie- Through various circumstances you find yourselves either compelled to constantly tell the truth or to lie. Naughty must always lie, while Nice must always tell the truth. That is the way things are now.

    A Group of Misfits dead-set on Destroying Christmas

    Your ranks include:
    1. MikeyCTS as Krampus
    2. Retaba as Orkrampus
    3. Assuran as Stone
    4. Burnage as The Harbinger of Christmas Never to Come
    5. I Needed a Gnome to Post as FWWLITAAOHSCOBTA

    Each night you may remove one individual from the game as a group. In addition, your leader (hitman) may kill another player as well. If your leader should die, the player of his choosing will take over as Leader. MikeyCTS is currently your leader. You all each have your own respective abilities, as well.

    Even though this is stated in the OP. I will restate the Village Win Condition, which is : Eliminate ALL threats to Christmas in MegaMall 1. I will also state that a player's role color matches their alignment. Hence why all of you had your names in red in the text. So villagers got " You are: Vanilla Man" , for example. This will become public information (via clarification), but wanted it to be made clear to all of you.

    Proboard orders will be accepted. Even for individual abilities as long as the holder agrees that others in the group can change their orders.

    Good luck, Gentlemen

Let's cut to the chase: You are immune to any attempts to seer, roleblock, busdrive, convert, timetravel, seduce or silence you.

    You are: Festive Werewolves Who Lived In The Arctic And Occasionally Helped Santa Claus Out Before The Apocalypse
    While it's commonly known that vampires enjoyed retreating to the northern hemisphere to take advantage of the long nights, less well-known is the collection of werewolves who live in the region. Contrary to the vicious mythology assigned to them, werewolves are an amicable bunch as long as they aren't disturbed, and even were responsible for a few last-minute Christmas saves back in 1986 and '73. Sometimes elves just don't have the stomach for doing what needs to be done. Of course now it's the post-apocalypse and the pack doesn't number what it was but hey. Times change, you just gotta keep rolling with them.

    Powers
    • Fur Coats: FWWLITAAOHSCOBTA are covered in their winter coats, which resemble Christmas sweaters. They may go outside without suffering any penalties or death from the cold weather and are protected from cold based effects. They are still at risk of fallout exposure.
    • Lycanthropy: FWWLITAAOHSCOBTA are werewolves and as such cannot become zombies or vampires, nor will they be able to become helpful ghosts and persist after death in any way.
    • Lunar Resilience: FWWLITAAOHSCOBTA are tougher than normal creatures and shrug off the first kll they experience.
    • Cause for Paws: FWWLITAAOHSCOBTA are unable to use any firearms or perform any feats of hand dexterity. Which includes unwrapping presents.
    • Let's Yiff: FWWLITAAOHSCOBTA cannot turn down offers for fornication.

    You are: KRAMPUS
    Krampus is a beast-like creature from the folklore of Alpine countries thought to punish children during the Christmas season who had misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. Krampus is said to capture particularly naughty children and drag them off into the black forest.

    Krampus is represented as a beast-like creature, generally demonic in appearance. The creature has roots in Germanic folklore. Traditionally young men dress up as the Krampus in Austria, Romania, southern Bavaria, South Tyrol, northern Friuli, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia during the first week of December, particularly on the evening of 5 December (the eve of Saint Nicholas Day on many church calendars), and roam the streets frightening children with rusty chains and bells. Krampus is featured on holiday greeting cards called Krampuskarten. There are many names for Krampus, as well as many regional variations in portrayal and celebration.
    -Wikipedia

    You are the leader of the Krampus Krew, who seek to destroy Christmas once and for all in this new wasteland. The fact that Santa Claus has virtually become a GOD in this new world brings you much pain.
    Abilities

    • Second-In-Command: You may anoint a fellow gang member to be your lieutenant. Should you be removed from the Mall, they will take over leadership of the Krew

    They are all zombies! Even if they don't know yet. It's not enough they abandoned the old traditional method of making Christmas gifts by hand. When they switched to mass production of gifts on assembly lines, I was no longer needed.It's also the fact that they allow a "minor inconvenience" like a nuclear war disturb their workflow, instead of continuing their jobs they all flee and hide in a MALL. A MALL!!! I will not let that stand, I will reveal their true nature through any means necessary. More than anything else, I hate the consumerism that has ‘consumed’ these survivors. So much so that I just want to tear the gifts out of their grubby little hands.

    Crushing Christmas: Each night you may pick one person to attack, destroying all gifts they have or will receive that night.
    Win Condition: If the game exists in a state where no one has any more unused gifts or the ability to give out any more, you leave the game victorious.

    Rend/Rawkking Goodguy
    You are: THE GIGAGIFTED
    batgigskel.jpg
    †Excerpt from The Black Book of Friday†

    'Neither man nor beast, The Gigagifted is a warped spirit of Christmas made manifest by the consumerist nature of the modern holiday season. He is a being of pure wanting. Usually he takes the form of a human child, boy or girl, but not always. It is most typical, in fact, for the spirit to appear to each individual onlooker as the image that being would most trust.'

    It is for this reason that THE GIGAGIFTED is very difficult to recognize, sometimes fatally so. More than one ill fated Christmas Soul has been snatched up from its owner from a wayward promise to THE GIGAGIFTED.

    "But you promised a Christmas gift... and I never forget a promise."

    Power: You promised me something...
    If any player promises you something in thread or private message/pro-board the hosts are privy to,
    no matter how absurd or obviously in jest, that player must comply with their promise.
    If they do not (promises without a stated time are assumed to happen that night),
    their souls are collected instead.

    Restrictions:
    1. You must notify us of promises and when they end (with a link to the post or tell us which PM) and we’ll adjudicate, letting you know the decision in real time (as soon as we can).
    2. A ‘promise’ is defined as any time a player addresses me and makes a claim to take a future action. "I am a vig" is not a promise, but "I will guard you" is a promise.
    3. All you do is want. You may not promise another player anything EVER, with the same definition of a promise applying.
    Once a promise is affirmatively adjudicated, a message is sent from the host to the player saying “You are strongly compelled to keep the promise you made or else face the consequences.”
    Upon receipt of 12 souls(one for, of course, each day of Christmas), THE GIGAGIFTED accomplishes his true purpose and ascends to Christmas Godhood, leaving the game victorious.

    Power: ...And I Always Collect.
    If a player has a promise with THE GIGAGIFTED which will expire unfulfilled that night and their soul collected:
    • If that player targets THE GIGAGIFTED with a negative or neutral power, it is nullified. Unless it was part of the promise.
    • That player receives a message “Your soul has left your body as penance for a promise broken. You receive a post restriction: You must only post in italics.”

    Power: ...Always
    THE GIGAGIFTED can reap souls of dead players who failed to fulfill their promises. Additionally, promises can be made to THE GIGAGIFTED after his death, and he continues to reap souls while dead. The first soul reaped while dead does not count, instead returning THE GIGAGIFTED to life. (note: obviously talking after the game, publicly or privately is disallowed, save for the usual one ghost post. Additionally promises to target dead or removed players will not be considered broken unless the ability in question explicitly states they can target the dead/removed.)

    mustlust.jpg
    Even in the post-apocalyptic hellscape, there's always room for Love. It just seems that people now are too busy killing each other to realize it. Soon they shall see that love really is all around.

    Abilities
    You may use one of the following abilities each day:
    • You Give Love A Bad Name: Submit a player's name, said player can not cause another player to be removed from the game.
    • The Power of Love: The player of your choosing may not be removed from the game by ANY means this round.
    • Stop in The Name of Love: Choose two targets. These targets may no longer target each other with abilities that cause removal from the game.

    Effects of an ability only apply on the day they are used. You may use abilities as often as you desire. Orders must be submitted the night before the day you desire for it take effect or before the second vote of the day is made.

    Special Ability
    • I Will Always Love You: Redirect all harmful abilities ,including the vote, from your target to yourself.
    This ability may be used in conjunction with any other ability and may be submitted anytime before vote close. It will take effect that same night.

    Win Condition
    • Love Is All You Need: See a day in which no OTHER players are removed from the game.

    You are: The Skin-Wearing Mutant!
    All that radiation in the Apocalypse wasn't good for your complexion. It turned you all green and oozy and ick. You're quite self-conscious about it. As such, you've taken to skinning the other survivors and.... well, at that point they don't need their skin anymore, so what's the harm if you borrow it for a bit? You know, just to try it out?
    Abilities & Traits
    • Grotesque: You're gross, both with and without your "extra layer". All players will seer you as a Serial Killer. Your actions, should they have a visible effect, will appear to be caused by a Serial Killer (colored black, etc.).
    • Skinner: Acquire someone else's skin. This will probably be quite unpleasant for them, resulting in their death. Unless skin is optional for your chosen target. You will retain this skin in your collection. The hosts will inform you of any special properties this skin possesses (see below).
    • Don a Disguise:Wear a skin-suit. When you wear another player's skin, you will be able to perform whatever actions they used to be able to perform that night. However, you will be unable to acquire a new skin set that night.
    Win Condition: Be the Only Survivor at the End of the Game

    Sir Fabulous
    squidparty.jpg
    You are:The Four Beatles of the Apocalypse
    Those fools never knew what hit them. They had no idea.
    The Beatles were the harbingers of the apocalypse, and so few knew about it.
    We hid messages in our songs. If only more people had played them backward. They would have heard.
    "Paul is dead. We all are dead. The Earth shall burn. Your stomach churn. When all four go. The darkness grows."
    The world went along as normal until the day the last of us died. When all of us had perished, we returned to Earth cloaked in our new forms, signalling the beginning of he end. We were not the only things that caused the apocalypse, but we were among the most terrible.

    And now, Christmas. The few survivors are grouped up in a mall. But the end is not complete. The apocalypse will not stop until all life has been claimed. And what better time to finish this work than Christmas.

    After all, we're far more popular than Jesus.

    Powers:
    • [The Fab Four] The Four Beatles of the Apocalypse are four beings, yet they work together as one. Each night, one Beatle leads the other three. This Beatle cannot lead again until all other Beatles have had a turn. Powers depend upon which Beatle is in the lead.
    • [Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da] Although the Beatles are supernatural beings, they must manifest physical forms to influence the world. They can therefore be affected by any powers that would affect a mortal man, and can be temporarily killed. If one Beatle is killed, he is banished from the mortal realm for a year and a day. The other Beatles cannot function without all four members, and similarly retreat from Earth until all four are able to return.

    The Four :
    • War Harrison
      • [Maxwell's Silver Hammer] Riding a horse blazing with angry red light, Harrison bestows a silver hammer upon a person of his choosing. That person, filled with an unquenchable rage, bashes in the head of the person that they are closest with. This is interpreted as the person with whom they have had the most PM contact with. If the person has not had PM contact with anybody, this turns into a normal Vig power.
      • [Here Comes the Sun] Harrison's horse burns as red as the morning sun. Any ice or cold related powers do not affect the Beatles this day.
    • John Deathnon
      • [Eleanor Rigby] John, lord of Death itself, has the ability to converse with those who have passed on. Each night he is in control of the Beatles, he can select one dead person to talk with. He can send messages to them (probably through the host) normally the next day. While doing this, John appears to be Father McKenzie, a weary priest trying to revive the religious aspect of Christmas.
      • [Imagine] John has a powerful Imagination. If he knows the name of another Role, he can imagine that they never existed. If this occurs, they are completely removed from reality, and any of the actions that they took on previous nights never occurred (people who were killed by that person are returned to life, people successfully guarded by that person are now dead).
    • Paul McPestilence
      • [Helter Skelter] Paul uses the human phenomenon of "Love" to spread consuming diseases and foul plagues through the population. Each night Paul is in control, he can choose one person. This person becomes a carrier for a wasting sickness. Each other person that they contact through PM that night cannot perform any actions that night, as they become racked with fits of coughing and vomiting.
      • [Yesterday] Paul can use his mastery over disease to temporarily prevent a wound from becoming infected. This is only a delaying tactic however. The wound will still kill the target, only more slowly. A person targeted with this ability will not die immediately from an attack, instead they will die the next night.
    • Ringo Starr
      • [With a Little Help From My Friends] Ringo, often seen as the least talented Beatle in life, is also unfortunately seen as the least talented Beatle in death. On nights where Ringo is in control, the Beatles cannot take any targeted actions.
      • [Octopus's Garden] Unbeknownst to anyone else, Ringo is the host of the Eternal Octopus. The Octopus resides inside Ringo, yearning for release. If Ringo is killed while in control of the Beatles, the Octopus is released. The Octopus, normally contained by a fleshy body, would surely be unstoppable once released. Only the bleached skulls of the dead serve as decoration in the Octopus' Garden.

    Win Condition: Ensure the completion of the Apocalypse
    or
    Release the Octopus

    Mafia Board is also Unlocked.

    Excellent game folks.

    I was close, but alas, I chose to talk to Assuran when it looks like I should have remained silent.

    Sorry about duping you yesterday Alegis, although I think you suspected something was up. Neither of us ended up winning anyways.

    A big thanks to Romanqwerty for hosting this. And a huge thanks to Egos for everything he did, too (including making the images for the roles, which appeared to be a hell of a lot of work).

    The last villager alive with little to go on D:

    Had to trust Assuran, even though I considered that throwing mafia under a bus is a good tactic if you have 2 nightly kills -- but Assuran threw 2 under the bus. Sir Fab and RGG were way more suspicious. Well played
    Perhaps should have gone with gut instinct looking for 5 sk/neutral roles; but the voting records were too good.

    I say this , knowing that Assuran was evil. The only tip off I could have seen was that he was on you initially yesterday (jumping on after RGG) and then when Retaba took off ,he jumped on that. Granted he talked to Aura before doing so, I believe? So could make a good argument that it wasn't just to look good if need be.

    (As said, I say this knowing who was what :rotate: )

    That aside, Alegis. Something semi-amusing, to me at least, your time traveling did remove Ketbra's narration from the beginning of Day 3. But because Sir Fabulous imagined you never existed, it is now back up. Because you never went back in time to get Ketbra, because you never existed O_o

    Haha :) I did tell him then that it would make a good mafia ability to get an extra kill if you know the name

    But it only hit me afterwards that if his story were true, he would be able to tell me Assuran's role name which he couldn't.

    God, you have no idea what a pain in the ass the last three or so days were, because I knew pretty much for sure from Day 6 on that most of you weren't village, whatever you told me... I just had to narrow it down. I'm taking getting the vote onto Inantp and Retaba as a victory at this point, tbqh.

    Normally, when people claim stuff as nutty as Assuran, Retaba, Sir Fab, and Alegis did, they have to be mafia. When 3 out of 4 of you turn out to be evil and one isn't, that's harder!
