The Pit Awaits


As you move through the mine shaft, low arguments and friendly chatter circulate. Although there is a sense of excitement and adventure in the stale air of the mine, no one has forgotten why they are here.

The light of your lanterns stops you short. The passage ends in a vertical shaft. At one point, there was a mechanism for safe descent, but it has since fallen into disrepair.

You have the necessary supplies to descend without tremendous difficulty, but a problem presents itself. One of you will have to be the last one down, without anyone securing the rope at the top.



You may volunteer to be the last one down by posting ##volunteer. If no one volunteers within 24 hours someone will be selected at random.

Votecount for Day 1

With 15 alive, it's 8 votes to lynch. The current deadline is March 02nd, 2015 at 8 p.m. CST -- that's in about 1 day, 19 hours.

The Pit Awaits


It seems you're waiting for an eternity at the bottom of the shaft. What could be taking Byers so long? Your fears are intensified as a lantern plummets through the darkness and smashes at your feet, screaming emanating from above. You wait in anticipation, but nothing else happens.

Suddenly, you can see Allie. She's not that far above you when her foot slips. She windmills through the air before landing in a heap on the ground. At least she seemed to miss the broken glass.



Byers, Allie Hensman has been injured. He will require the assistance of another member of the expedition to get through the day.

If you ##volunteer, Byers will only be able to vote the same player as you for the rest of the day.

Allie's service to the group will not be forgotten. Byers is loved the rest of the day and +1 to lunch,

I'm not going to just force Byers's vote somewhere he doesn't want it to be. Part of the reason i volunteered was cause i trust myself not to abuse that power. But mostly cause i never get to be part of day events and i wanted to be involved.

Why is yuming's opinion so out of whack with reality here that it warrants you voting her?

There's not time limit for when a volunteer needed to occur; discussion and a later volunteer could have allowed me to be supported by someone whose read of the game fits. I don't know what Rarity thinks bout this game thus far, if she votes for someone I think is playing like town, I'm forced to choose between voting that person or not voting at all now. Can you really not see how effectively controlling someone's vote in a day might be a good move for scum to make?

I could go either way on it, but I do see yuming's point. It's control of my vote, even if you don't abuse that control. I'm more interested in PMom's jump that yuming's scum for pointing out a very valid point, one you yourself acknowledge; this is something that can be abused.

Rarity volunteering is not a votable offence. I think yuming is looking for an excuse to vote for her.

Allie leaned on Lula for support. Her knee was pointed in the right direction, but was bloated and a shade of purple she'd rarely seen before, and never on no human body. As soon as she found a stick long enough, she'd fasten together a rough crutch, but for tight now all of the wood she saw was being used to stop the sides of the tunnel from collapsing in on the group.

"It was wolves," she said, her teeth gritted in pain. "Four o' the bastards came up the tunnel behind us, and when they saw I was alone they came for me. Person who brings me the most wolf pelts in the next month, they's get fresh-smithed fireplace tools from me free of charge."

Why? You're saying it's scummy; what do scum gain making that specific case?

I feel like you're either stretching to make a case on yuming (and run into the same problem where I can't reconcile you wanting yuming, specifically, dead) or you're jumping to defend Rarity.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. You're aggressively defending Rarity. There's a difference between voicing your disagreement with yuming's case and immediately calling yuming scum for making it. The immediate "oh come on" response is disproportionate to a simple reaction to defend Rarity.

Proportionality is subjective

Sometimes the best thing to do is just nod and smile.


Aaand I'm around for a bit.

Notable points:

Day Actions that are public like Rarity's and Byers are somewhat iffy on alignment calls in my opinion.
First, Rarity doesn't control Byers' vote, she just limits the person he can vote for. If Byers disagrees with who Rarity votes for, he should just not vote.
Second, while scum would jump in to nab to the power themselves, town would also jump in to prevent scum from nabbing it.

And my other comment:

Damnit, go back to the western flavored posting, that was awesome.


Also, I own a house....

I agree with this.

I can see Rarity snatching up a vote as scummy. I personally wouldn't vote her for it, but it's still a scummy thing to do so I get why yuming voted. PMom acting like this is totally out of line and is itself a scummy move I don't get.
