Pirates Are Excellent Liars

On the deck of the The Dreaming Wolf of the Four Seas the waves were barely audible over the wind. This made the mutiny easier than expected. Captain Zot Awesome, known as Captain Butt to his friends, turned when he heard them but it was too late. His "ARRRR" was short and unheard and his body was not discovered until the watch changed a few hours later.

After the alarm woke the crew, a hushed group of twenty-eight pirates gathered around the corpse of their beloved leader. The laws of the pirates clearly state that anybody who claimed the ship would be clearly in their rights to do so. Nobody was willing do so as it would cast doubt on their loyalty to Zot.

The Wolf sailed on towards the buried treasure on Zot's map. The pirates were too busy arguing about who they thought was an arse-faced and traitorous mutineer to notice.

General Information
Each day, players must vote for one player who they believe to be a mutineer to be eliminated from the game. Vote for the player who you find most suspicious in bold red with “!vote for <player name>” or similar phrase. You may change your vote in the same color. The player who receives the most votes will walk the plank. Should there be a tie in the vote, then a random player among those tied will be eliminated. The game day will end at 9 PM PDT / midnight EDT / 4 AM UTC each day. Actions or votes timestamped at 11:59 EDT will be accepted, but those marked 12:00 will not.

Rules
Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of role PMs via direct quotation. However, information in them may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing, and other PMs from me can be quoted. No screenshots. No anonymous contact is allowed. All messages must be traceable to a player in the game.

If any players create proboards for private communication, please send a link for it to the host. Ask me for clarifications in orange or via PM or IM.
[tiny]Thanks are due to Mrblarney, whose OP I blatantly stole these rules from. He probably stole them from somewhere else, though.[/tiny]

Other Rules
  1. If your role allows you to send PMs to me, I will only take the last PM as the valid one.
  2. I will only take the last vote each person makes, ignoring the others.
  3. If you are in one of the groups of mutineers and you know you have a kill, any of you may send it.
  4. All six mutineers, a group of three and a group of two and a lone one, win together.
  5. There are seven pirates who must die in order for the loyal pirates to win.
  6. Unless your role PM says you are a mutineer, you are loyal.
  7. Your pirate name is meaningless and unique. Feel free to make up a more fitting one.
  8. Many role PMs have a lie or two in them. Be careful.
  9. For those with post restrictions: if you blatantly fail at adhering to the restriction you will be punished.
  10. For those who are inactive: you will be punished.
  11. If a mutineer kill targets a fellow mutineer, the kill does nothing.

Order of Operations: Redirection, roleblocking, other nondeadly powers, all kills
All powers in each of those groups occur at the same time. One consequence of this is that there is no way to redirect the kill vote by killing the winner.

    I don't have anything against you. It's simply that the post restrictions and that big red thing in the OP will make this a tough game for new players.
