That's a pretty good theory, I will consider it.

I have been thinking a similar thing. His reasons for wanting to lynch me seemed like a bit of a stretch.

I have 1% battery, the timing of this is amazing. I wish I hadn't said I wouldn't be available the rest of the night.

It's a good theory and well reasoned, I'm happier to take the lynch rather than the same problem happen tomorrow but please whoevers left have a REALLY strong idea who's scum. Try to put the theory out there tonight. I'm still happy with Mith.

I can kind of see it more in the D1 posting, in that he's straight onto Beet and only Beet basically.

Also on D2 he has a theory about why Seagull was NK'd which turns out to be level of hype for Jojo, but when Anidav suggested "flavour knowledge" Anidav got slapped down because Bif said flavour was useless but its practically the same reason.

The order of the Seagull/soag/TOML kills also to me suggests someone familiar with the recent Auspol meta. Seagull I can see being Beet, but why soag? TOML indicates someone who was around for a lot of the last game, but it wasn't Kat and it wasn't Anidav (and it's not me!)

Nazi scientists: "Santana did invade his body before, why wouldn't the other Pillar Men make the same choice? Of course they'd want to take over our greatest officer!"

Nazi scientists: "We put him together, so we can also take him apart!"

Public Service Announcement

It's vital for Pillar Men to be responsible pet owners. If you are a Pillar Man and can no longer care for your experimental demon squirrel, please take it to a shelter so it can either be re-homed or put to sleep. Under no circumstances should you abandon your pet in the wild where it can out-compete and endanger our native species.



Did you know that one feral flesh-eating Pillar Squirrel can kill between 5-30 animals per day? While they appear to prefer small mammals, they also eat birds, reptiles, amphibians, and possibly humans. While they appear identical to the common squirrel, they have a very different ancestry, being spawned from the biology-manipulation powers of a Pillar Man.

Take for example, this Pillar Man here. A few nights ago, he tested his evolutionary powers to craft a squirrel from the material of his hand:



Once this Pillar Man died, his pet was left unattended to roam freely and escape into the wild. Since then, this single squirrel has wreaked havoc on the local fauna, including this poor innocent fox squirrel:

I'm here.

This is a tough lylo. Mith has given pretty much zero data, while Gaspy went pro-town early on.

My theory is that Gaspy elected to keep the two lurkiest townies in the hope that one of us would vote for the other and then he can hammer. Keeping Birdstrike instead of one of us would've been a risk, especially after he seemed on board with my theory from yesterday.

Also looking at it your theory is basically a complete parrot of Gwyns, presented as original material. So was that the idea? Lurk until the end then get one of us on side then rush the vote?

With the Ripple users gutted, and their great cyborg dismantled, the Nazi scientists were desperate for a new plan of attack. They returned to the cavern where the Pillar Men were originally found, hoping to discover some clue to defeating them. Caesar's friend Mark was among the soldiers assigned to escort them.



But they were surprised to find the last Pillar Man already there, paying respects to his defeated companions. It was a one-sided battle. They were all powerless against him.



(RIP MaliciousOnion, Town)

(RIP Gwynplaine, Town)

Mark was fatally wounded. There was no way he could be saved. But as he died, he thought he saw someone leaving the cavern, someone he least expected...

Click here for poignant outro music!



Mark: "Caesar! What are you doing here?"

Caesar: "..."

Mark: "You'll stop the Pillar Man, won't you?"

Caesar: "..."

Mark: "I just have one request before you go, Caesar... kill me!, Kill me now! It's starting to hurt. I- I'm so scared. I was numb at first, but the pain... ! Please kill me now, Caesar!"

Caesar: "Of course."

But the power that ended Mark's life wasn't the Ripple. It was the hand of the last Pillar Man, Wamuu.



With the Red Stone of Aja in hand, Wamuu will carry on Kars' will, to ascend as the ultimate evolved being! Congratulations to Asphyxious, and his teammates HiipFire and Matthew Beet! SCUM VICTORY!
