Confirming. Per my standard attempt to head off joke phase:


Dr. Hurt, you have been selected as my partner for this game. I have control of a single-use vig. Please tell me who I should use it on, and why.

Hello Amnistar. I'm a little bit soused right now, but if y'all can keep up I'm ready to ride. Also, if I'm gonna play depute I'm sure you'll be paying me.

Keep an eye on how much Asiina participates. That'll be a tell on whether to put her into the ground or not. Ecco is always a wild card so it might be a good reason to get Tommy Harden out of the way early. Capps for the same reason. Capps is a wild card and sometimes it can be hard to tell whether wild card Capps is a positive or negative for this little ol' shithole in the ground.

The Pit Awaits





Far out from Golgatha proper, the Schreien Hills begin. Even seasoned trackers and cowboys are cautious out here, the winding canyons and paths can be as dangerous as any wolf. The sixteen of you, all beneficiaries of Crowley's strange will, have gathered before the entrance to Wohlstand Mines. The mines have been abandoned for decades now, but Crowley's map clearly indicates this is your starting point. As more of you arrive, sidelong glances fill the air. No one seems to know what exactly Crowley was up to, or at least won't admit to it.

By the time the last group arrives, the sun is high in the sky and you're anxious to begin. The horses are tied up by the entrance, some folks will be by later to bring them back to town. Without further ceremony, lanterns are lit and you begin your journey.

You can't be more than fifty yards through the entrance when Emanuel halts the party. "Wait just a tick, thought I saw something back a few paces."

You look on impatiently as he fiddles around in the rubble by a minecart a little ways back. Suddenly Emanuel screams and jumps up, but by then it's too late. Thunder claps and the roof of the mine collapses above him. Those of you who have your wits about you sprint down the hall fearing a cave-in, and the rest follow.





Soru, Emanuel Ashbel, Town Vanilla died day 0!

Once the panic subsides and you catch your breath. The smell of gunpowder tinges the air, this was no accident. Wild glances are exchanged, but there's no turning back now. The darkness of the mine beckons, and you advance as conversation among the group begins.

wait wait wait let me do this before Ecco does:



In light of my dark skin, I assure you there is no sort of Islamic state to be frightened of in these times. I am a simple man named Rafi. I love booze, women and the occassional game of russian roulette. Let's not make this into a pigment voting system or my friend Pancho Castillo will be wetting and defecating his trousers at night - knowing his fate. And we would not want that stench wafting in close quarters. Now if you excuse me, Tommy Harden is waiting for this fine cigar I promised him many moons ago. And there is no better night to draw from the head of this succulent beast.

Yay Somber!

Okay, so my name is Lucy. It's technically Lucinda, but I've always liked to be called Lucy, it's more fun and I'm all about fun. My dad, James, always called me Lucy, but my mother, Margaret was a devout Catholic and very proper, so she always addressed me by my full name and would give a stern look to my dad if she caught him calling me Lucy. I don't remember much about her other than her sternness. She died when I was only 5. We used to live in a small but nice house in Dallas, Texas, but after my mom died, my dad changed. He never said how my mom died, but I know that it broke him. He started drinking and gambling, and soon we were forced out of our house. He always tried to keep my spirits up and told us we were going to make a new exciting life for ourselves in New Mexico. I loved the trip to New Mexico. I had never been outside of Dallas before and to see the wilderness just made me light up with excitement. It really was an adventure! But then we arrived and settled into this little rundown house in this town and hadn't moved since. His drinking followed us all the way here and when I was 17 he died of liver disease, leaving me with our tiny house. I always try to see the brightness in every day, but I want nothing more than to see the world, just to set out and travel, and am terrified of being trapped in this monotonous life forever.

So there we go Ecco, poem time!
