    I was going by the front page that says Venus is still missing.

    Perhaps Venus is not dead and is missing some other way and he was not able to resurrect her? I'm talking out of my ass here, it's all speculation.

    I mentioned earlier than the missing stats aren't updated. There's 25 missing there, and only 21 players actually missing.

    But...do we even really care about the "neutrals"?

    Are they agents of evil? I'm unclear on this. If they're agents of evil, then yes, we have to remove them. If they don't count as such, then we actually don't have any strong motivation to search for them, do we? The village's objective is "Remove all agents of evil!" I don't know if we should know whether they count as evil or not at this point. I...I don't know. I'm somewhat stumped when it comes to our neutrals.

    They're sorta like Kaotic Chic, or however it's spelled, from Powers. Or what I've read of it, anyway. They want all the powered people gone. They aren't allied with the village, but then they aren't exactly completely against us either. On the other hand, the objective is to eliminate all "agents of evil." If it'd meant just the villains, it probably would have said so, especially since the villains' objective explicitly states that they have to kill at least 9 heroes.

    So yeah, carry on in the hunt for the neutrals, I suppose. Still, with what we've seen, they're not nearly as powerful as the villains. Timer's gotten a kill each night, while RAGE missed a night tonight. Hmm. Don't know about that one.

    If that's so, this is the first night where we know exactly what's going on. Exciting!

    Balefuego was a citizen.
    Punchline (precisionk) went to go kill him but died, because...
    Leech (whoever that is) stole ManMountain's powers and used them on Punchline.
    Then, Anaximander dodged the vote kill that went to Typhus733,
    but got killed by The Revenger.

    That means the neutrals know another villain's (MM's) identity, and either got lucky on Punchline or knew who he was also. On top of that, it stopped MM from performing his kill.

    They're doing pretty well, I'd say.

    tux brings up a good point, one I'd missed earlier. That Leech probably has to know who's a super to steal the power. This makes sense, since if cj was Cold Front (which he almost definitely was), it explains why Cold Front's ability got stolen that night. Typhus said cj was a baddie, Leech goes "Hey, I could use a baddie power," steals the Cold Front, and freezes the guy who's used the item (which we still don't know much about, coincidentally).

    Although I still think my earlier thing about the narrative is correct. Anaximander didn't dodge the execution kill, he was dead before it happened. Hero moves go before executions. Even though the way it was written makes it sound like the opposite.

    Potentially the Leech might not know the identity of the special he's stealing the power from.

    I was thinking along the lines of, the Leech sends a PM that says "I use ManMountain's power on PrecisionK" or similar.

    I don't think so. There would be a lot more 'questionable?' kills. So far we've only seen two.

    Edit: Plus, it just doesn't make sense. It's too powerful.

    Unless there is a cooldown on the ability of a couple of days, which is why we've only seen two question marks?

    Still...isn't it a little remarkable that Leech used Cold Front's power on the day that we were all voting for Cold Front? That's pretty much what's selling me on the "target a player, gain their powers" idea.

    Greetings, citizens of Phallopolis. As you have probably noticed, I was protected last night. Therefore, it makes me the best choice for the new mouthpeice of the network now that Typhus is dead.

    First, I would like to explain exactly how Typhus died. It was a miscommunication among the Heroes. The vigilante wasn't convinced that Animaxander's robot protection goons were gone from the execution vote, and some of the heroes agreed that it would be best to cover the vote. So the vigilante sent in the kill order for Animaxander, telling everyone to get people to put someone in second so we would have a secondary kill if indeed the execution vote WAS enough to take care of his protection. This never got done and Typhus got killed. Not much we can do about it now.

    The odds are stacked pretty heavily in our favor right now. Villains of Phallopolis, your days are numbered. With Professor Death Science! gone, there is little standing in our way to victory. We greatly outnumber you, and we have the resources to secure a victory.

    This would explain why RAGE didn't get a kill last night. RAGE was sent off after Grundlterror, and yet Grundlterror didn't die. Hence, guarded.

    See? this is what I'm talking about! Random people showing up, and swaying votes immediately!!

    Who is Grundterror? Why should we vote for him? Why was he protected?

    I'm alittle nervous with the amount of civilians that have been killed off you see, and I'm looking for a candidate that will look out for the best wishes of the general populace, not just join the hero/villain bandwagon, and all the innocent suffer!

    Looks like the heroes are doing better than their outlook from the first couple nights. I think the 'power stealing' theory regarding the neutrals is a pretty good one. We still have time to get rid of the remaining two neutrals - though Venus could be alive again. I'd use the Editor question to either keep teasing out information regarding them, or ask about R.O.B.B.O.T.

    For the speaker vote, I !vote Rygar for Speaker. Grundlterror can be our leading candidate, but I'd like to have a couple reserve candidates just in case. Rygar and jdarksun look good to me.

    It looks like there's no direction in the execution vote tonight, after two nights of Anaximander/ Prof. Death Science! voting. Hmm, what does my gut instinct tell me? ... it tells me I need lunch. I'll think about it.

    Grundlterror is in good shape for now; I guess I'll !vote for jdarksun for Speaker, since Typhus seemed to trust him enough to put him up the first time. Rygar is still an unknown as far as I'm concerned (yes, not a villain, but we probably can bank that the neutrals don't seer as villains).

    Execution...eh, Gleve seems dodgy, but I'd like to see if we have a target first.

    On a guy who they also sent someone to kill? Unlikely...that's one very convoluted way of creating dissension in the network, and if that were the case, we'd also be seeing people saying that Grundlterror's a fraud, which we're not seeing.

    Unless you meant someone else being guarded...which I don't see, since there's no other room for guarding in the events of last night.
