If TBK is a scum then we've been utterly outfoxed. It'd mean that TOML was a loving reverse death miller.

I don't think Komm would be THAT mean. Hopefully.

We have just over four hours to try to get a vote through. I'd really like to get one through, because like you say Milky, we're better off lynching than not.

I'm not going to put a candidate forward for lynching tonight after the debacle yesterday. Milky seems to have a pretty good handle on the game atm, I'll follow his lead.

:ghost: not that I'm telling Kommando what to do, but in long term silences like this, it's usually customary to modkill a player who's refusing to interact. Or at the minimum, swap in someone to the role if they're genuinely absent.

Most all pretence of running a Young greens getaway and conference has been dropped, Sen Ludlum has a slideshow about social services and economic stimulus, with a really good analysis of youth unemployment by some people at the ABS and Gratten Institute. There was going to be a chance for the Young greens to offer up their experiences of struggling to find work in the 21st century, post GFC, but everyone is out by the pool.

Its been a tough couple of days, people have died, for reals died. like so dead.

And everyone looks at each other, each knowing that among them, are the murderers. All except hooman, hes inside reading Mills copy of A Path No Man Thought.

A round of questioning of each other in detail is started but everyone has their story.

" Small Keating, you've not said much, you go stalking the halls again?"
"fuckin perv".
"what did you see?"

SK bashfully looks down
"nothing"

"cmon"

"I kinda... yknow, went to see, Bif..."
<hoots and hollering>
"but we didnt do nothing. i just, watched."
Bifauxnen blushed.

"Well that alabi checked out." said Mithranderp. "About the only person were remotely sure of is hooman, and hes not said anything in his defence."

Hooman it is then.

Everyone looks at each other, its gotta be.
----------------

"HOOMAN! OUTSIDE!"

The group is assembled near the back door, rope has been procured, the plan: tie up hooman and interrorgate him.

Hooman bumbles outside into the bright light, shielding his eyes from the sun.
the group dogpiles him and ties him up to a deck chair, gagging him with his socks. They fleece him of his room key and head inside to procure evidence to shove in his face.

"WAIT! Someone should watch him." says Fraudien Slip

"I will" says Milky Moor.

The group agrees, and race upstairs to ransack hoomans apartment. They empty his duffel bag out and find theres nothing more incriminating than a 50g baggie of weed, a pipe and and $300 in twenties. Dude is legit. And dealin. Yeeeeaaaah.

The group head downstairs to find Milky standing beside a limp hooman.

"He was struggling and making all this noise. So i, like, tried to knock him out. Like in the movies. Like Will Smith..."

Someone checks his pulse, hes not breathing.

"Coward punch." spits thatbastardken.

-----------------------

hooman, Vanilla townie was lynched.

End day 5.

Night actions get in.

"thatbastardken died tonight.

it was ah... a penile injury.

Funny story actually... someone had gone through his stuff and filled a bottle of lube with superglue, yeah, and they also left a steakknife. So when he was alone in his room. And then he panicked, I mean, how embarrassing huh? heh.. yeah, not that funny actually.

apparently he was some kind of journalist.

...

yeah im coming home mum.

just packing my things now.

love you too.

Sure seems to be the case. Is everyone just checked out? It's got to be do or die now, we still got a shot at picking scum today just from the pure probability of things, right?

I'm looking through stuff again now on whoever's left, trying to see who's worth voting for today.

I'm getting some last-minute jitters now about SK, just from how pitiful our list of town powers would be if you crossed the tracker off the list. But I'd feel just as nervous about anyone we picked at this point. If SK doesn't show up to at least report on who he watched last night though, I won't have any more doubts.

fake edit: Ha ha, nice timing! So what's the deal, SK?

but- but he was like the only person besides bowmore we were feeling really sure about as town based on any kind of data! Why would you watch him of all people last night?!

I was going to try and go to bat for you, I was seriously thinking for a while with the way the powers were distributed that you probably had to be on our side after all. But I can't come up with any way to defend that. That is just crazy nuts. I mean honestly. :psyduck:
