Somber and Kashuno, you have been nominated for eviction. Mr. Steak, if you'd like to say a few words explaining your nominations you may do so now.

Somber and Kashuno, you still have a chance to save yourselves. You, along with Mr. Steak, will be competing in the Veto competition along with 3 other houseguests.

The other three players have been determined by RNG and are :rolldice:

The Lord of Hats
Teland
Poque

I will see the 6 of you at 8PM EST. It is a Puzzle challenge and you will need some sort of image editing software.

Good luck!

Kashuno, Somber, Iím sorry but I choose to nominate the two of you for eviction this cycle. My target is Kash, but naturally Iíve nominated two players Iíd be fine to see leave, I wonít pretend otherwise. Youíre both people I respect, but you both threaten my game in one way or another.

Kashuno:
Cycle 2 is like a distant memory to me by now, so I donít have any ill will towards you at all, let alone for that nomination (which was Kupo anyway). This nom is just because youíre sort of a liability. Talking to you is great and all, but it feels like anything game-related I let slip, will be circulated around the entire house by later that day. I donít see myself being able to reconcile that to ever talk genuine strategy with you, so keeping you around would only be a risk. Also, you say youíve been keeping it 100 in this game, but I donít think you have been. You have a sneaky habit of prying into others for information and then blackmailing them for more. If you go home though, Iíll miss your Circle references... Iím really sorry about the 3rd consecutive nom! I was seriously strongly considering swapping you out just to give you a break, but ultimately I just have to do whatís best for my game. I hope you understand.

Somber:
Basically, youíre a threat. And youíre the biggest threat left who I donít completely know that you have my best interests at heart. Youíre not my target though.

If either of you want to discuss my decision, Iím more than happy to talk here or in the main discord channel.

Good evening ho..useguests.

It is I, your host Ju...lie Ch...en.

Tonight is a very special night. It is the anniversary of the night that the rigHTFUL RULER OF THE GALAX...criminal and demon Juby Chirp was...imprisoned, never to feel the warmth of the sun again.

A single tear flows down the figure's face.

To...celebrate this victory for all mankind, I have prepared a tribute to our fallen foe. Come, young ones, and gather around. Together we shall recite the incantation and one of you shall become a worthy vessel for he....the power of veto.

Now listen carefully, for there must be no error in our workings.



This challenge is called....Letter Match

Instructions

At 8:10 you will be given a board with many letters on it. Your job is to find the letters that DO NOT making a matching pair.

The non-matched letters will reveal a word that you must unscramble.

Letters must match in both font and case. For example:



Be the first to submit your completed puzzle WITH the correct word written on it in your confessional, and you win the Power of Veto and nothing else mysterious will happen at all.

Are there any questions before we begin the ritual?

Does a non-matching pair of A and a count as 2 a's for the word or just a single A.

If there are two nonmatching pairs of a letter, does that mean there are multiple instances of that letter in the world? such as

(times new roman)A (comic sans)A
(Helena)A, (Helena)a

mean there is a a in the word?

You must show that you have completed the puzzle in some way. Show your work. If that's scribbles on the puzzle or blocking out matches or highlighting the correct letters, that's all fine.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS








You hear a low, rumbling sound that gradually turns to a cackle. Smoke billows from a crater in front of you. Slowly you see two glowing eyes pierce the darkness.

Something shoots out of the crater, faster than you can track. Debris flies everywhere while you shield your eyes. When you dare to open them again the hooded figure and whatever you...unleashed is gone, leaving only a charred veto surrounded by bits of shattered crystal. Slowly, Poque picks it up and puts it around their neck.

Poque has won the Power of Veto...but at what cost?

The nominations remain.

Please submit your vote for either Somberbrero or Kashuno before Sunday at 7PM EST.

The next HOH competition will be Sunday at 8PM EST and is a Forum challenge. It is mobile friendly for all you sports watchers out there, but would be easier on a computer. In any case, it hopefully won't take too long.

If you won't be able to make it to the challenge please let me know beforehand.
