ALL HAIL THE GREAT CRAB LORD


You descend upon BrainParasite, clench him in your hands, and heave him out. He stumbles into the grey mist surrounding your conference. He was never seen again.

BrainParasite, Major Jack Celliers (Vanilla Good David Bowie) caught his death in the fog!

You regain conciousness for a fleeting second... "... a mass found in his left frontal lobe..." ... and float away again.

It is now Night 1. Please send your night actions (if you have any) to me. Do not post until the very next day.

You reassemble yourselves. One is missing from your number. You find him in the corner, slumped over, fallen to pieces.

mr.capps, David Bowie, 1987 (Vanilla Good David Bowie) was let down!

You frisk him for smokes, find none, and set about discussing whom among you is the culprit.

It is now Day 2! Deadline is Thursday, 7PM, unless you agree it should be later.

Well that was unexpected, but it was nice of scum to kill mr.capps for us so we didn't have to lynch him ourselves?

Of everyone we've got left, EXAKT Science, Tremendous Taste, and Antivehicular feel the most suspicious to me. EXAKT hasn't said anything other than quoting lyrics (we all wrote those together you dope ) and is voting reactively. Tremendous Taste has all of one post for day one, with no vote, and no case except an unsubstantiated "I don't like EXAKT's vote" though to be fair I don't either. Antivehicular hasn't done much in general, and he cast an invalid vote though it probably was an accident. My gut says he's PROBABLY town, but that might just be the Runaway Five avatar talking.

Allen Wren and Chic Trombone don't give much to work with but they worked to avoid a no-lynch instead of passively letting it happen (though I guess a certain town lynch isn't much worse for scum than a no-lynch), while yuming got the ball rolling in the first place.

So I'm gonna ##vote EXAKT for the time being and see what happens from here.

Jul 23, 2003



Okay I was gonna wait until just before the deadline to spill it, but I'm the Cop and the flavor of my PM indicates that there's probably a Doctor too, so I probably get roleblocked or killed after this. (idk why I bothered with that last clause there but w/e I'm keeping it in) I investigated Tremendous Taste last night and he flipped scum. Seeing Tremendous Taste come to EXAKT's defense strengthens my suspicion that EXAKT is probably scum, and there's nothing else to go on so we'd might as well stick with EXAKT (or go for Taste, it won't bother me none). Yeah I'm falling on my sword here, but I figure with one scum hit out of two scum total it's a fair trade.

Also, I pushed for EXACT over Taste because there was a stronger case to be made just based on available evidence. I was hoping to get some people saying things, but I GUESS NOT. Help me out here Allen

I was considering posting after Taste's indication that it was a posting restriction with a sort of "and how do you KNOW that?" but didn't want to get too wild. Wild's not my thing. Bowie's not my name, either. You can check my locker. The one with the gnome in.

Also idk why I didn't switch to Tremendous Taste after revealing I was cop, at least this way we have an immediate moment of truth.

Oh, because there's still 26 hours until the end of Day 2 and that'd put us at -1 is a good reason. Don't want to quash discussion early.

Also that picture was one I just trawled up from the google, it wasn't from my PM. Found it in the Daily Mail.

I've just looked at EXAKT's votes again, and I'm really liking the idea of EXAKT and Taste as the Duke and the King, or whoever the villains might actually be.

Abyssal Squid
Jul 23, 2003



Sorry I'm posting a bit erratically right now, I thought the deadline was tonight and I'm going to be on the road right around 7, so I didn't have time to think clearly. Worst case scenario, I get lynched or modkilled and I flip cop, which is not much worse than getting nightkilled or roleblocked for the rest of the game.

Re modkill: I thought the prohibition against posting your role PM was to avoid making arguments based on the exact syntax and formatting of the PMs, not because there can be information in the flavor. Yeah, if people quote their exact role PM and compare them for discrepancies that gives town an unfair advantage, but I figure it has the potential to help both sides equally if you figure out some additional information from the flavor.

I'm okay with extending the deadline. Also, I apologize for relatively limited posting -- this has been the busy section of my week. I'm also sorry about loving up the vote formatting; where I usually play, there's at least some manual checking and people vote others with nicknames all the drat time. LEARNING EXPERIENCES!

Anyway:
##vote Tremendous Taste because either that's a gutsy-rear end scum move, in which case we kill Abyssal tomorrow, or we have a cop vote.. EXAKT is also a tempting target, but let's go with the scanned scum first.

Abyssal Squid
Jul 23, 2003



Yeah I'm fine with extending the vote, I doubt we'll get much more information but there's no real sane alternative.

And yeah, Antivehicular I figured it was an accident because people screw that up all the time, and I had to triple check that there wasn't a space. Hell, my response to BrainParasite was reminding him that Votefinder is really picky assuming he was casting an actual vote.

Everyone have a great Thanksgiving!

We're two short (Antivehicular's vote isn't being counted because he put in a space), yuming and EXAKT switch your votes or somebody else vote for BrainParasite. I mean I'd vote for capps but effectively pushing for a no-lynch like BP did is really scummy, we can vote for capps tomorrow if nobody else really sticks out.

yuming, Allen Wren, and Chic Trombone all come off pretty strongly town, BrainParasite strongly scum, and EXAKT Science I'm getting a weak scum vibe (the bandwagon vote for capps was innocuous, but posting without switching to a better lynch candidate as the deadline approaches is suspicious). No read on capps, Taste, or Antivehicular but I'm not expecting a read on capps.

You gather, having made your choice. Tremendous Taste stands cornered, but with a smile on his lips. "Bowies, go back to your rooms. Play with your guitars and your costumes."

What an insufferable jackass. You seize him in your self-helping hands, and a glass ball shatters against the floor.

Tremendous Taste, Jareth, the Goblin King (Bad David Bowie Scum), has no power over you!

The lyricposting was a posting restriction that I asked EP for before the game started. I thought it would be a bit easier than it was, but I was doing my best to post lyrics to convey my suspicions about people. For obvious reasons, it failed.

Right now, I don't think it's unlikely that one of the people voting for me is scum. They're willing to push me to -1 within an hour of the game's reopening. I have more to say, but it's 4 AM right now, and I am exhausted. I will post more today, as I have a surprise day off!
