Night of the Werewolves V
Fall of Luchuirp

Werewolves prefer to strike at small villages. Big cities have legal systems, and lots of people crammed into one place. A werewolf might be able to cause some havoc there, but he'd be killed before he could even make a dent in the population.

But Baron Halfmorn was in a foul humor, that day in the Luchuirp city of Morr'tebio. Three werewolf spawn he made, and then left them to decide their own fates. They did not have a long time to consider.

Shortly after the Baron left... something happened. No one is sure how or why it happened, but just as the city was preparing for war against the Sheaim, the magical constructs of the city, those golems that the residents relied on so much, went insane.

Golems are very good at what they do. They require no food, no air, no pay. They do their tasks with mechanical precision and efficiency, and they continue to do them until they are stopped. On this day, all of the golems seemed to decide that their task was to destroy the city of Morr'tebio, and destroy it they did.

Rampaging through the streets, killing all in their path, the golems ended many a Luchuirp life. Worse, some golems set about walling the city off from the outside world, throwing chunks of stone and steel around the perimeter.

The destruction came to a stop as quickly as it had begun. One moment, golems were setting about looking for the last survivors. The next, they were back at their appointed tasks, as if they had never stopped.

It has been three years since that day. A ragtag group of residents and outlanders have set about making the ruins somewhat livable, and they've long since reached a steady state of self-sufficiency.

But something is about to shake their little community to its foundations. Three werewolves still live among them, and the wolves have been preparing to strike. This small community must fight for its life, or when rescue finally comes to them, their would-be rescuers will find only werewolves.The werewolves struck with cruelty and cunning. Though the community had a mayor, the true patriarch of the village was an old knight named Sir Argus. A dwarf he was and in the city to see to the war preparations.

When the golems attacked, he singlehandedly slew dozens of them. Many of those now alive in the village owe their lives to him, at least indirectly.

Screams rang through the night. Were they coming from Sir Argus' quarters? The villagers that awakened comforted themselves by muttering that if anyone confronted Sir Argus, it would be them that was screaming.

The more grisly truth awaited them in the morning. At least Sir Argus had put up a good fight. Virtually every piece of furniture in the room was shattered, and a dent in the wall showed where a too-large form had been sent flying.

But even Sir Argus could not fight a werewolf pack's supernatural speed and strength forever. Bloody footprints showed where he had been cornered, and ripped to shreds. The wolves were malevolent in their victory, writing taunting messages on the walls in Sir Argus' own blood.

A guillotine lies in the middle of the new village square. It was knocked over during the attack by the golems, and no one had bothered to put it back up. It stands now, imposing and stolid. It shall be the final arbiter of justice, now. This dread contraption is the only way that the villagers can find salvation. [TAB][TAB]Characters:

[TAB][TAB]Rules:

[TAB]Basics:
Each player is assigned a character, called a “Citizen." There are a few odd Citizens which are the Werewolves. The Werewolves know who they are while those who aren't afflicted are completely in the dark on this matter.

Every day the Citizens will lynch one person. Every character will vote publicly and by the end of the day one citizen will have his head chopped off, only then will the public know whether or not he was a werewolf. Afterwards the night phase begins, in which the werewolves savagely rip a citizen into bits and pieces. Rinse and Repeat

The game ends with either the Werewolves being eliminated (in which case the Citizens are victorious) or the number of remaining Werewolves being equal to or greater than the number of remaining innocent Citizens (in which case the Werewolves are victorious).

With your PMs you will find that game is much more complex than explained. With special abilities such as the prophets' and items which may cause unpredictable turns in the game, you will find that the Werewolves may not be your greatest problem yet.


[TAB]Voting:
Werewolf votes:
Form — secret ballot.
Sent — to night GM (Chandrasekhar).
There are no rules demanding the werewolves cooperate, but they are firmly encouraged to communicate with and support each other. Victory is nearly impossible for a squabbling Werewolf tribe.

Lynch votes:
Form — public ballot.
Sent — publicly.
The only voting innocent citizens will be doing.


[TAB]Communications:
During the night phase you are not allowed to speak, play dead for that period of time (if you are dead, don't talk at all). You may however converse through the PM system (unless you're dead). Quoting other players or any other form of mimicking is forbidden (especially when you're dead).

Muttering and Speeches
Your character may make a statement during the beheading procedures. You may make a public speech, in which case you will be identified by your name. Or you may choose to mutter under your breath anonymously. You may not speak publicly and mutter during the same lynching.
The basic idea behind this idea is for fun, to give non-werewolves something to do during nighttime, and to allow all players a bit of participation writing the hanging scenes.
To speak during lynchings, send the day GM a PM using the following format:
Voice: Public / Secret (choose one)
Duration: Before / After (choose one)
Condition: Any condition you can basically think of. If the person beheaded is a werewolf or an innocent citizen; if someone specific talks; if no one else talks...
Text: "Whatever you wish to say"


[TAB]Other:
Active abilities which require you to PM a GM may require you to inform either a night GM or a day of how you intend to use your powers. To clear this, I (Jono) am the day GM and Chandrasekhar is the night GM.

Public transfer of item ownership is allowed. Items found on corpses and such will be sent to storage and go unused.[/color]

Evening, day one:

The day of the murder of Sir Argus was an eventful one. In the first hours, it seemed that the flesh golem Grillick was doomed to be destroyed as it had been created, but as more voters weighed in, it became clear the the guardsman Bad Player was far more suspicious, and his doom became clear.

Such a turn of events would be more than enough to make the day memorable, but they were not the whole of it. The guardsman would certainly be remembered for being a raging lunatic, though perhaps he can be forgiven for that, considering the circumstances. The jeweler's sudden and inexplicable sickness also would be remembered, as would be his miraculous recovery when exposed to the herbalist's tea (as a side note, how the tea got into anyone's thoat, let alone the jeweler himself's, remains a mystery).

Everyone will of course remember the wife of the mayor's final attempt to save her secret lover, the guardsman. In putting the truth out for everyone to see, she hoped to save his life. But alas, the votes were in, and some were not so sympathetic to the guardsman's situation. The citizens began to disperse from the square as the hour drew close, as it became certain who would die.

One final event shook the remnants of the city, as the librarian, for no apparent reason, was caught lunging at the farm manager with a kitchen knife. She was quickly subdued, of course, but not before she could make it well known that the farm manager was a no-good, lying, cheating, dirty rat of an ex-husband, and the he ought be decapitated on general principle.

Just as soon as that odd happening was concluded, it was time. For though this day would live forever in the memories of those that went through it, what exists in the here and now must be taken care of. The guardsman Bad Player was escourted to the guillotine, and his head was placed on the chopping block. The citizens remaining on the square suddenly hushed, watching with grim anticipation as the life of one of their own hung in the balance.

It is over as quickly as it begun. Before the guardsman could so much as utter a last word, the mayor pulls a lever on the contraption, the blade falls, and Bad Player's head falls to the ground below. For a few moments, there is complete silence as the citizens eagerly watch for a sign that he was a werewolf. None comes. Stillness reigns over the remnants for a few eternal moments, and then the mortician walks up to the dread device and begins to collect the remains for a proper burial.

The guardsman was human. Bad Player was innocent!

That opens the floodgates. "He was but an insane man.." a voice can be heard to mutter sadly. Another, more excited: "It was the golem! and his werefriends, remember the first two to step up with hollow accusations? The ones who turned you all against an innocent man to protect their brother? Grillick, Conroe and Inscribed- there are your 3 werewolves!" A small uproar happens over these words, but soon subsides, as the citizens realize that they don't want to be the last person left in the village square.

Finally, the square is empty but for the vultures, sounding their displeasure at Bad Player's removal. Darkness takes the city, and its citizens rest uneasily in their beds. Today has shown that many in this crisis still keep their secrets, and the citizens must be wondering if those secrets will come back to kill them. Only one thing is certain- the wolves are now free to kill as they will, and the village will have one less citizen by morning.

These are tough times ahead of us... It used to be so calm around here... What happened with the golems? Why Sir Argus? I remember one particular day, when I woke up and noticed that my farming golems were nowhere to be found. When I went to fetch some breakfast, a golem was about to kill me when Argus killed it. Who would kill such a hero?

In the morning, the scholar slowly emerges from the library where she had been studying old writings, having fallen asleep on an ancient tome as she is wont to do. Hearing all the commotion, she follows the crowd to Sir Argus' house, growing pale in an instant as she sees the carnage there.

"Kilmorph bless... never have I seen a scene such as this, only read of them in old books. Who - or what - could be responsible...?"

Hmmm.... The Guillotine`s angle would need some adjustment. It certainly does not give maximum chopping effect. Hmmmm.... And the rope would slide better and not remove force if... Aha, of course . And the launching device might need adjustments. Hmmm. If I .... or.... Maybe that would work. Hmmm.

Os, Sir Angus is dead. It seriously troubles me. I even had to calculate the sliding force of the guillotine twice. And that is easy math. Hmmm... I really have to be upset now. Maybe I`d better get home and calm down with some equations...

Yes, equations are good. The purity of the mathematical logic. Just like golems. Until someone wanted a flesh golem.... Golems can`tbe inflicted with that wolf-disease unless they have flesh. So the destruction of our village has to be because someone crafted flesh into them. Yes, that`s the obvious solution. The golems went crazy cause of the flesh.

Hmm, how to remove that flesh from the golems....

No, got to go and do some equations to calm down.

*The Mayor's wife pushes through the crowd in a hurry, stepping on toes and bumping into people* Oh, I am sorry! Pardon me dearie! Watch those hands Mister, this isn't open house!

Right, positions. Young Bard RxP13, I want a beautifully written poem, I want you to honour this great man! Go and find Mrs Xuenay and Mrs EvilBohdran for details of his achievements.

Lumberjack Hitti-Litti, we will need wood, you will see my husband for the costs. Go and see that nice mortician and find what he needs for a beautiful casket!

GUARDS! Oh where is he. *The impatient busibody taps her feet awaiting Bad Player's arrival* Have him and Inscribed stand honour guard, theres a good chap. *A coin is placed into a helpful villagers hand*

*The Mayor's wife flitters about making other random orders, leaving most people around bewildered at the rushed instructions. The last words are blurted out as she runs off into the distance*

Theres so much to prepare! D'Artagnan my dear, Where are you?

Already three voices for the guillotine. Hmmm... I`d vote abstain, but then the corrections in angle, release-method and adjusting the rope would not be tested. Hmmm.... After all, Grillick is a flesh golem. Yes, it would be wise to test the improved guillotine on him. At least some flesh is taken away from the golems, so that they won`t revolt again, yes....

So, if Z is a factor, why is Y not z square? Hmmm.....

"Argus fought and Argus laughed,
He sliced and smashed and cut golems in half.

When unrest was about, he knew to attack.
Be it through sword and flesh, or pen and fact.

Yet woe was his, and now ours too,
to find him splayed within his room.

Villainous dogs did crawl up hidden as friends,
Stabbing him while he was close and taunted as he bled.

They wrote on the walls vile messages with blood,
about the deed which had by then been done.

Now there are no children at play,
They grieve for the great man who hath passed away..."

RxP13 paused, remembering the great man. Then, with a perk of the soul and conviction, he had a curious thought.

"Since when do golems know how to write so fine? There was a message in Argus' room, written it blood as we all know. We might not yet have heard what the message was, but it doesn't stop it from being written none the-less. Wouldn't one have to know how to write, before writing such a thing in their horrid true form?" Rxp13 paused again.

"I cannot vote without knowing how educated Grillick is. I shall vote for Bad Player, since he was the closest to Argus. Though more knowledge of Garrick would be nice to find my opinion from."

Our Page, Herbalist, and Blacksmith are putting up a good argument.

Grillick may be a golem, but he is not responsible! There is a guardsman in this town. If he had fought against the wolves, he would have died. If he ran away, he would die.

There is only one reasonable scenario left!

Bad Player is one of the three werewolves! It's quite obvious!

Dear sweet Kilmorph! How could this happen! It must have been those blasted Sheaim, just like how they turned our own golems against us. Never trust anyone above 4 feet's what I always say. Still I don't know about this golem nonsense you all are spouting. Seems to me if a golem did this there would be a lot less... well carnage. But if the mayor says so I trust his judgment. Kill the golem Grillick, and if we are wrong its not like we can't make another.

I share your suspicions as well, I just see the guardsmen much more incriminated than the golem...

I say that the Mayor should disclose the message on the walls though. It might give even more clues, or perhaps at its worse, more questions.

Hmmm. The blacksmith has a point here. Even if he has a problem of bending the horse-shoes in the right angle, because his math isn`t too good, it is true that it is a bit suspicious the way the gurdsman must have left sir angus. I`ll keep my vote for the flesh-golem, since the factors available for me to calculate are pointing to him, but why did the guardsman leave?

Hmmm...

Have you considered my offer of tutoring you in math? It would be really helpful in your profession, you know... The wrong angle on a horse-shoe is just hopeless...

And think of the swords you could make. With perfect angles and perfect weight.

Hmmm. Getting late, going home to my equations

Of all the golems in the city, I was the only one who fought with you. All the rest tried to kill you. Every one who faced Sir Argus perished.

Somehow, I was immune to the curse that turned the golems against us. Was it my flesh? Perhaps. I remember nothing before I was this body. But for three long years I have lived amongst you, and during the time of troubles, when the golems turned against you, I stood by your side.

I helped, when none of your other creations would. In fact, they worked against you, trying their best to kill you. And many of you lost family, I know. But never to me. I have never killed anyone, and whoever killed Sir Argus cannot have been a golem, for Sir Argus is so well-known as a golem-slayer.

Bad Player may not be the killer, but his failure to protect Sir Argus makes him responsible for this fate all the same. Please, everyone listen to reason. Sir Argus could not have been killed by a golem. He was a golem-slayer.

It would seem that the events of three years ago still weigh heavily our the minds, that we would so quickly blame a golem for these events. I would ask you all to consider things more carefully, rather than just allow you memories to hold sway.

It is hard to believe that Sir Argus could die without some betrayal - the guard failing to alert him, his page turning upon him with fangs revealed? Who knows. For now I will vote for Bad Player.

*The villagers could hear the Mayor's wife coming a mile off, the shrill outburst as she hears the latest voting results and quickly waddles into the middle of the crowd*

Oh my word, my husband is away two minutes and the village loses its senses!

Lynch our Guardsman? How could you! After Sir Argus he is one of the few left that can protect us! How are we supposed to feel safe if you take all our defenders away from us? Next you will be saying Sir Argus' squire is responsible for his death too!

Nothing could have been done to save Sir Argus, short of ALL of us going to help him. *The Mayor's wife waggles her finger at the villagers listening* So don't be so quick to judge those of us who were not there in time.

The only way to sort this out is to vote though. So I say, short of any real evidence, which I doubt that we will ever get - Never trust an Elf.

I vote Tavern Owner flamingzaroc121 to have his head chopped off

While I do not claim to be an expert on the topic of werewolf lore, I do know that golems, even flesh golems, becoming werewolves is unlikely to the extreme. I find myself much more suspicious of Bad Player. Besides, from the signs of the fight, there were more than one of the attackers - this can't be another golem revolt, since Grillick is the only golem we have left. They'd have needed human collaborators... and I very much wonder why our so-called guardsman never went to the assistance of Sir Argus, even though he must have heard the screams? That was his job, after all.

And it seems we've got a bit of a lynch mob after Grillick. I don't know if that golem be inflicted with lycanthrope or not. But, Grillick seems too obvious to be a wolf ... no ... I suspect it might be one of those hyooo-MANs running around ...

But wait ... Where was our Gaurdsman when this happened to Sir Argus? I say this could not have happened to Sir Argus unless our Gaurdsman BadPlayer were not inflicted!

Jan 12, 2007, 06:45 AM
Our Page, Herbalist, and Blacksmith are putting up a good argument.

Grillick may be a golem, but he is not responsible! There is a guardsman in this town. If he had fought against the wolves, he would have died. If he ran away, he would die.

There is only one reasonable scenario left!

Bad Player is one of the three werewolves! It's quite obvious!
Sah, the roles of werewolves were randomised not chosen from the storyline.



Are you out to have me killed sah? :mad:

Bad Player
Jan 12, 2007, 06:47 AM
I share your suspicions as well, I just see the guardsmen much more incriminated than the golem...

I say that the Mayor should disclose the message on the walls though. It might give even more clues, or perhaps at its worse, more questions.

With all due respect sah, D'Artagnan59 why won't you reveal this clue to the villagers? Rather you let us tear eachother apart randomly. :nono:

It seems like Bad Player has lost his mind, talking about allocations and storylines which make no sense to the rest of us. Maybe this is the effect of the werewolf disease, working its way through his brain.

And if you wish to accuse a golem for this deed, why not accuse some other than Grillick, who has proven itself loyal to us? There are countless of mindless golems, blame them instead!

Alchemist (female, Human — Arpymaster)

Having watched from afar all the discusions, the alchemist shaked her head... the monsters were in the village and there wHere a lot of people to suffer their presence...

So the important question was... who's a werewolf?

To soon to know... So the next question... whose fault was the death of the Major?

The guardsmen must have help him in the night, not the golem. The guardsmen was paid to protect everybody, not his own flesh... if he had not helped the major, why should he protected anybody else?

Getting dressed in dark clothes (not a good day to wear her more colorfull dresses) the alchemist went to the villagers.


Good morning, fellow citizens... I vote for Bad Player to "leave" our comunity... he's obviously a coward and so he must pay... with his life.

Bad Player
Jan 12, 2007, 10:05 AM
Remember that the Mayor has not revealed the clue.

Remember that if the Mayor dies then the werewolves stand to gain a lot because of increased hangings. Therefore if the werewolves do not slay the mayor at night there are 3 reasons:

1) The mayor is a werewolf
2) The mayor has an item/power to ward off werewolf attacks
3) The werewolves are running a bluff to make the mayor look suspicious.

However the problem with 3) is that there is little gain for the werewolves in making the mayor look suspicious - why get the villagers to hang him when the werewolves can do it themselves on the first night?


If the mayor survives more than a couple of nights then he is a werewolf (unless the werewolves fail to strike one night which means they went for someone with a protective item/power). Mark my words even if I am to fall.

Turning around to talk to Bad Player

You were on duty last night, weren't you? I think I heard you talking about protecting the major's house... so if you truly were guarding his house, you probably know if he stayed there or not... if he stayed he's not a werewolf.

And when Sir Argus ask for help you didn't help. We won't get any help from you next time. You are of no use. You guard only your life.

Silly human, our mayor is fine. You've been here for a few years and you still can't tell us apart? If these beasts tore Sir Argus limb from limb then what hope do all of you have for our poor guardsman here. If he would have been their last night we would have had TWO bodies rather then one. I am shocked how quickly we turn on each other. We all know Bad Player reads too many of his fantasy books and every once in awhile gets things "confused" but by no means does that mean he is a were wolf.

As for you Bad Player, do not think your little comment has gone unnoticed. Remember that the mayor was the first to not vote for your head. All you have done here is put our dear mayor in mortal jeopardy. I shudder to think what would happen to us with the lose of our beloved leader.

I'm suspicious about -Zoe- the Baker. Well, it's just a hunch, but it's better than nothing. But even if I vote -Zoe-, who may be a wolf, my vote wouldn't change anything. Bad Player or Grillick will be hung. I think Grillick knows something, and he should be investigated, not hung. Bad Player to be hung!

The wolves were malevolent in their victory, writing taunting messages on the walls in Sir Argus' own blood.

The facts are as such. To survive we will need people to keep us safe. After Sir Argus Guardsman Bad Player and possibly Page Inscribed are our greatest defenders. It is possible, I concur, that they may have been turned, as it is true of any of us. But to make them your prime target! Foolish dwarves!

Bad Player could not have killed Sir Argus last night because he was with me. All night. In my husbands bed *The Mayor's wife blushes* I apologise to my husband D'Artagnan59 - but your inability to make me feel safe brought me to this, to rest with a stronger man.

His tardiness to arrive at the scene was a ruse to dispel any myth of us being together. Those who say he should have been alongside Sir Argus in death are wrong - none of us worried about the shouts and went to aid him, we only found the body. If you were so worried perhaps you should have sought out the Guardsman yourselves.

But about the Mayor, what happens if the, er, um, ah Mayor is struck down?

It was the Bard who said that the mayor has a clue (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=4974732&postcount=42).Well then, here is what the Bard had to say ...I say that the Mayor should disclose the message on the walls though. It might give even more clues, or perhaps at its worse, more questions.This secret clue that you keep going on about is the tauntings on the wall. Written in Sir Argus' own blood! May I suggest that you go into Sir Argus' quarters and read them for yourself? ;) There is no rule or law prohibiting that!

Why would the werewolves have much to gain if the lynchings increased? It is us the villagers who are most likely to benefit from being able to lynch more people - or would somebody support the motion of stopping lynchings altogether and let the werewolves freely take their picks on us until we were all dead?

"Or perhaps we could just chain everyone up in a basement, and then wait til night to see who turns into a werewolf. Sadly, I don't think we have strong enough chains to restrain such beasties. If only there were wolf pens here like back home." The bard said sarcasticallywith a sigh foreclosing his statement.

"Perhaps employing a buddy system would work, although I suspect no one wants to sleep with another man, or see their spouse doing so. It would be easy to tell from broken iron bonds who the real beast was."

Oh thats a brilliant idea. Chain everybody up. Then when the werewolves change and break their chains they can kill everybody in one night.

It's sundown
Day One of the Crisis

The day of the murder of Sir Argus was an eventful one. In the first hours, it seemed that the flesh golem Grillick was doomed to be destroyed as it had been created, but as more voters weighed in, it became clear the the guardsman Bad Player was far more suspicious, and his doom became clear.

Such a turn of events would be more than enough to make the day memorable, but they were not the whole of it. The guardsman would certainly be remembered for being a raging lunatic, though perhaps he can be forgiven for that, considering the circumstances. The jeweler's sudden and inexplicable sickness also would be remembered, as would be his miraculous recovery when exposed to the herbalist's tea (as a side note, how the tea got into anyone's thoat, let alone the jeweler himself's, remains a mystery).

Everyone will of course remember the wife of the mayor's final attempt to save her secret lover, the guardsman. In putting the truth out for everyone to see, she hoped to save his life. But alas, the votes were in, and some were not so sympathetic to the guardsman's situation. The citizens began to disperse from the square as the hour drew close, as it became certain who would die.

One final event shook the remnants of the city, as the librarian, for no apparent reason, was caught lunging at the farm manager with a kitchen knife. She was quickly subdued, of course, but not before she could make it well known that the farm manager was a no-good, lying, cheating, dirty rat of an ex-husband, and the he ought be decapitated on general principle.

Just as soon as that odd happening was concluded, it was time. For though this day would live forever in the memories of those that went through it, what exists in the here and now must be taken care of. The guardsman Bad Player was escourted to the guillotine, and his head was placed on the chopping block. The citizens remaining on the square suddenly hushed, watching with grim anticipation as the life of one of their own hung in the balance.

It is over as quickly as it begun. Before the guardsman could so much as utter a last word, the mayor pulls a lever on the contraption, the blade falls, and Bad Player's head falls to the ground below. For a few moments, there is complete silence as the citizens eagerly watch for a sign that he was a werewolf. None comes. Stillness reigns over the remnants for a few eternal moments, and then the mortician walks up to the dread device and begins to collect the remains for a proper burial.

The guardsman was human. Bad Player was innocent!

That opens the floodgates. "He was but an insane man.." a voice can be heard to mutter sadly. Another, more excited: "It was the golem! and his werefriends, remember the first two to step up with hollow accusations? The ones who turned you all against an innocent man to protect their brother? Grillick, Conroe and Inscribed- there are your 3 werewolves!" A small uproar happens over these words, but soon subsides, as the citizens realize that they don't want to be the last person left in the village square.

Finally, the square is empty but for the vultures, sounding their displeasure at Bad Player's removal. Darkness takes the city, and its citizens rest uneasily in their beds. Today has shown that many in this crisis still keep their secrets, and the citizens must be wondering if those secrets will come back to kill them. Only one thing is certain- the wolves are now free to kill as they will, and the village will have one less citizen by morning.

It is night!

It's Sunup
Day Two of the Crisis

The morning brought almost as many surprises as the previous day, and those no more pleasant. Though the citizens had been expecting one of their number to fall to the wolves, they would find that things were not so simple as they thought.

The foremost thing on everyone's mind in the early hours of the morning was the faint smell of something burning; then, a bit later, a familiar crackling noise. The citizens rushed from their homes with the early light of the sun, and they found a building ablaze.

Of course the thought had come to the villagers that they might want to take some weapons from the barracks located near the town square, but then the thought occured to them that if a sword and decades of training hadn't saved Sir Argus, what chance would they have? No, it would be far more prudent to just pretend that those barracks didn't exist, and to use the guillotine and their own wits to destroy the werewolf threat.

But they could not forget the barracks now, as it was the barracks that were ablaze. Worse was the fact that someone was trapped inside. With some effort, a body was pulled from the flames, but he had been dead before they had started. A gaping wound from a sword decorated jeweler thomas.berubeg's chest, and the coldness of his body showed that he had been dead long before the fire was started.

Tragic as his death might have been, it implied something far worse. Though a sword may do no good against a werewolf, it might do quite well against a normal citizen. Someone had the means and the will to kill a citizen that was neither wolf nor convicted by the due process of the law. A new threat looms before the villagers; one separate from, though easily as dealy as, the werewolves that currently plague them.

But that was not the half of the surprises awaiting the villagers. After the panic surrounding the burning barracks subsided, another panicked voice could be heard. "Where's my wife!? Where's Rogueknight!?" She was found quickly enough. A crumpled, bloodstained heap lying against the house she and the mayor shared, the deep claw and bite marks in her made it clear that her assailant was very much a werewolf.

And while the citizens still mourned over the death of their matriarch, one final surprise awaited them. They found him in a back alley, facing the wall and talking absently to himself. His face may have not been visible, but the scar tissue he tenderly tested with his fingers could only belong to one person. The guardsman Bad Player stood very much alive, and neither he nor anyone else would admit to knowing how this was possible.

Now the citizens face yet another day of accusations and surprises. Another citizen will be dead before nightfall, and his blood, for good or ill, will be on the hands of those who remain.

It is daytime!

These events are shocking. Welcome back Bad Player!

Perhaps I should explain the librarian's behavior last night. Long, long ago, We were husband and wife, but then some wretched friend convinced her that I was a false husband. Had I not been warned earlier, she would have stabbed be very soon. Actually, I could easily suspect EvilBohdran as a werewolf or criminal...

Well, what do we know? He was killed, then sometime later somebody set the building on fire. And somebody around here is missing a sword.

And on top of that, the wolves chose Rougenight. Why her? was it something to do with her affair? or because of the vote she cast?

Good point about the swords being stored in the barracks! I don't know if the librarian's a wolf but seems to be a likely candidate for the murderer.. Especially considering Thomas' comments about the women and the way she attacked her ex husband...

Still- back to the main issue at hand. Who was the only one of us who had access to whatever was written on Sir Argus walls? and later we find the writing gone. Badplayer accuses (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=4976726&postcount=67) him of being a wolf, and gets his head chopped off, in spite of the proof he was not a wolf. His wife announces to the whole town she was having an affair- and the next day- killed by the werewolves... Sure you asked where she was this morning- that proves nothing, if you did have her killed it would be a good act. Then you are so quick to brush it off- "But wait! She cheated on me! I'll just marry someone else." You almost sound happy. If you loved her enough to marry her- even if she did have an affair any person would be devastated.

I don't have proof- there is a lot of circumstantial evidence though. I would like some confirmation from flamingzaroc121 on your alibi.

D'Artagnan59
Jan 14, 2007, 06:43 PM

Golems may have attacked us before, but I trust Grillick. I believe he is innocent. But I don't know much of our librarian. I know our Thane hates adultery. Our librarian... Don't have much of a clue about her. The only time I talk to her is when my friends aren't there.

So it is my town's duty to change my vote to sepuku160.

I must say, it is quite a conundrum of events that has taken place overnight. Honestly, I'm not sure of what to make of everything ... with the resurrection of our Gaurdsman, clearly one amongst us has powers not of this world.

And the untimely death of Thomas ... :hmm: ... and after he fell ill yesterday ... makes me wonder if those two events are related. Honestly, I do not know. But it seems to me that Thomas' murderer may actually be able to help us. This vigilante is obviously brave enough to traverse outside at night. Perchance shall he or she skewer a werewolf one night? We can only hope ...

I don't totally understand what happened last night, but I say the business of this day is to send a werewolf to the guillotine! And there is one amongst us that has been acting mightly suspicious this morning ... the Farm Manager, Splime!

Just after sunup this morning, he stood before us all (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=4984565#post4984565) and named three villagers that he suspected of lycanthrope ... yet he decided against casting any votes. Once someone else cast the first vote, Splime was all to ready to jump on the bandwagon and vote for EvilBohdran. Ahhh, but then a lynch mob formed calling for the head of Sepuku160. Splime then decided to change lynch mobs and vote for Sepuku160! And now, Splime has decided that I am the vigilante (a weapon against the wolves!) and calls for my head.

SOOOOOOO many votes changes in just a few short hours ... it is enough to make one dizzy.

Now I am not going to stand before you good people and state that I know Splime to be a werewolf. For, I have no such proof. But at the very least, our Farm Manager seems all to eager to do the bidding of the werewolves!

{This is in response to Conroe} I realize this, and it was mainly to think out loud. I'm a simple farm manager who doesn't make decisions easily. First, I voted for EvilBohdran, and without any evidence, this seemed like the best choice.

Then, when I switched to sepuku, that was because our mayor made that decision. Then I realise my mistake in judgement.

So why do I vote for your execution? Which, you don't fool anyone, you're only voting against me because I did the same to you... I vote against you because you are the only person to have anything to do with swords, and it seems like one of our dead were killed by a sword.

{EDIT:} Wait a second... is your speech made in order for others to change their opinions? Much like I changed mine? You're desire is to change everybody's votes against me, isn't it? A little hypocritical, that somehow, if someone is going to change their opinion and vote for me, they're alright, but if I change my vote to you based on later eveidence, I'm guilty?

thomas passed out, knocked out? Said it was whores. On his way back
Is Sir Argus's sword murdered thomas?
Was thomas trying to steal the sword?
Or watching it? Or something about the sword?
And thomas was born in a different town.

Conroe may be blacksmith, but he might not be the killer.

He could be an accomplice. Like the one who made the sword.

But he could not.

And our page could be a suspect.

Still, my vote stays the same.

cvlowe
Jan 14, 2007, 09:17 PM
About Thomas... Lots of suspicious activities there a few plausible candidates for the killer. Did anybody think to check his body for signs he was a wolf? He was stabbed through the chest, then left in a burning building, but didn't somebody mention his body was cold? Very odd, would think he would be... umm... err... well done...

As for the mayor- I did not want to vote without giving him a chance to defend himself, but his answers kept raising more questions... Now he admitted he lied about his whereabouts on the night Sir Argus died, and still we do not know where he really was... And his wife and her lover- both killed on the same night? And why was she outside the house and not inside? So many odd circumstances. Could the wolves be framing him? Anything is possible. But then why would he lie?

So for now my vote stands. I am willing to change it if somebody can provide some compelling evidence of his innocence.

D'Artagnan59
Jan 14, 2007, 09:20 PM
Check Thomas's body to see if he's a were... What?

I change my vote to..

Immortius!

Now, this is secure evidence about Immortius being our man!

Jan 14, 2007, 09:25 PM
My reason for voting for you (Conroe) is over the death of the jeweler.

When I said I don't make them easily, I meant by myself. I admit, I follow the evidence that gets laid out.

Now listen. I was in town for a lot of time this morning. If I had only come in later, I would've been able to see the big picture. However, I make my decisions based on the evidence I see. When new evidence comes in that changes my suspicions, I don't stubbornly keep my vote which looks really odd.

Splime
Jan 14, 2007, 09:44 PM
OK, well that's fine then. Also, many things this morning have been suspicious. Last night, EvilBohdran was suspicious. This morning, flamingzaroc seemed suspicious, as did Grillick. I know it's suspicious, but isn't anyone who's active in these arguments suspicious? Hell, isn't everyone suspicious in some way or another?

Your argument does make me seem to want to change my vote again... {:lol: lol} However, your job does make you suspicious. I'll come back to this later. {I'm going to bed, and when I get back up, I can look at the big picture, not my "wolfish" activity :lol:}

As Immortius has not spoken up since this morning, I assume he's checking the body as we speak...

Hardly compelling evidence.

As for splime and conroe, why not discuss the evidence then vote, instead of switching back and forth many times. Remember we are talking about taking a life here- should not be taken lightly.

Nero's fire
Jan 14, 2007, 10:19 PM
What's this? Its barely past noon and we are at each other throats again! We all know that Immortius tends to oversleep during the day, the requirments of the job I guess. Kilmorph knows he has good reason to have stayed up all night fretting over wether those things would come prowling around his house.

Splime and Conroe have been yelling at one another for hours now. My guess is that Splime is still a litte ticked off since his hoe broke a day after Conroe fixed it up.

Sir Argus dead little over a day ago, quickly followed up by the deaths of three other dwarves last night. Is this suspect to no one else? The mayors wife was the sole voter against the tavern owner and now she lies dead. It is no coincidence in my books that pointy eared tree hugger flamingzaroc121

Further why would a dwarf want to kill our Jeweler. It makes no sense. Those outsiders though are out to destroy us. They are playing us off each other. I've been saying this for years and yet nobody listened. They caused those golems to run amoke years past and this is how they plan to finish us off.

I remind you all my usual realm of expertise is preparing corpses for burial, I'm not an apocathery or doctor or somesuch. Regardless, I'm pretty sure that Thomas was no wolf - wolf-sign is so obvious a child could spot it. There's barely a need to check anyway - a sword wound like that couldn't possibly kill a wolf.

Alchemist (female, Human)

When the alchemist saw the destruction of the barracks she felt nothing... but the corpse of the jeweler was something else. He hadn't been killed by werewolves but by a murderer.
Later hearing the wife of the mayor was dead shocked her. She couldn't believe it!!! And seeing Bad Player moving around almost kill her by a heart attack.

I'm sure why the werewolves killed the wife of the mayor. If she had been with her lover, our guardsman, she was human. As we knew her to be human, we would not have killed her, so she had to go. Had I known before the guardsman was with her on the night Sir Angus was murdered, I wouldn't have vote for him...

But now I want answers!!!

WHERE WAS THE MAYOR TWO NIGHTS AGO!!! He wasn't with his wife, but he also LIED when he said he was in the tavern! If he's such a LIAR, I don't want him as the mayor

Next, I want to know what was written in the walls the first night. Again, I think it was the MAYOR who read the messages... I want to know WHO read those messages!

And finally, I want to know HOW IS IT POSIBLE that Bad Player is still walking among us! Is he a new flesh golem? Who has the power to bring back the dead?

Please, fellow citizens... we must clarify this questions... they are a priority!!! Don't be fooled with nonsense acusations... first things first... let's not forget this things

Does anybody know if the stolen sword was special?

Inscribed
Jan 15, 2007, 05:46 AM
Special?
How do you mean?

But I do agree that we should clarify the questions. We obviously took the wrong man last night, he even came back!
I have to say, I do belive the killer is of less concearn to us then the wolves. The wolves are more dangerose then a simple killer, and if he is a vigilante, he will also stop as soon as the wolves are dead!
But I will not vote at this time, I obviously made my decision to soon yesterday. But I will vote soon

Bad Player
Jan 15, 2007, 06:03 AM
It's good to be back! :D However now that I am above suspicion the werewolves won't want me to live too much longer I think. :p

I have 2 questions:

1) How did the bard know that the mayor had a clue (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=4974732&postcount=42)? Noone else knew this and I haven't seen anything to say the mayor had the clue.

2) Why isn't the mayor revealing the clue? He may well have a very good reason not too but if he dies before revealing it then that harms us all.

Splime
Jan 15, 2007, 08:00 AM
OK, time to think about possible suspects, and make a final decision...


First there's our mayor. He's a suspect because his wife, who cheated on him, died last night. Of course, that seems to be too obvious.
Then there's the mad librarian, who tried to kill be last night. However, she seems to just be insane over killing me, not people in general.
There's the Thane of Kilmorph, only because the mayor's wife was a false wife. But wouldn't the thane let nature punish her?
Of course there's the blacksmith, but it's rather weak evidence to say he is a suspect because he makes the instrument that killed the jeweller. However, we need to know, did the blacksmith have any customers recently?
There's the mortician, but I don't see the link there.
Of course there's me, but that's because numerous events have changed my opinion.
Finally, there's that flesh golem, and I've always hated golem. Racist? Maybe. I still have strange suspicions...


In my opinion, the two main suspects are Grillick and D'Artagnan59. However, Conroe, have you sold any swords recently, or otherwise provided people with swords?

{My votes are cleared, Vote Pending}

cvlowe
Jan 15, 2007, 08:18 AM
Wasn't it established that the jeweler was killed in the barracks? Where we had hundreds of swords stored? I would say its a stretch to accuse the blacksmith at this point.

And who are you trying to vote for anyhow? the murderer or the wolves?

Splime
Jan 15, 2007, 08:21 AM
Getting the murderer is more important (If the murderer is killed, only one person gets killed per night. However, one werewolf won't change the deaths per night.), but my suspects are for either one. That's a good point about the barracks. Anyway, do we have anyone who witnessed anything going on at the barracks?

cvlowe
Jan 15, 2007, 08:26 AM
The other question then is- how do we know there will be a murder every night? Somebody obviously had it in for the jewler- he fainted earlier the day, could he have been poisoned? When that didn't work maybe somebody decided to take more direct action. For that matter, why was he in the barracks in the first place and not at home?

So many questions, so few answers...

Arpymaster

Alchemist (female, Human)

I'm thinking that the only reason apart from being a werewolf for the mayor to not be at his home two nights in a row is... HE'S CHEATING ON HER WIFE ALSO!!!

Your wife was brave enough to step to the front and admit her infidelity. If you don't say the same, I will vote you, "Mayor"

By the way, can someone explain how is it posible for the dead to grow "new heads", or at least to join head and body?

The only explanation I could find for him to be out last night are:
- He's a werewolf. He killed Sir Argus two nights ago, and last night when he changed into a monster his wife saw him and run for her life, but didn't make it because his fellows where already waiting for him outside.
- He's a murderer, he left home to kill the Jewler and his wife follow him, thus found the werewolves
- that he's resurrecting people. As I don't believe this, I say we take him down.

He hasn't revealed the reasons why he left home
He hasn't told us what was in Sir Angus house (the writings)

I have some queries...

-Why was Thomas in the barracks in the first place?
I don't think he could have been killed and taken there... So just what was he doing? He might have been seeking protection from the wolves, but surely he'd know the weapons aren't much of a defence against 3 wolves...

-Why was the barracks on fire, and why was Thomas cold?
Perhaps to burn the evidence, though it is highly odd, surely it'd have been better to try and move the body away from the town instead of drawing attention by burning a large building.

-I don't believe the blacksmith is to blame for the murder, as the barracks are full of weapons.

-Where has the mayor been, and what is happening to him?
He wasn't with his wife... He has also lied about his whereabouts once, he wasn't at all bothered about his wife dying, why won't he reveal the clue on the wall?
He will not tell us where he has been..so I believe he is the murderer as he is highly suspect.

-What happened to cvlowe? He came out of the brewery, pale as a ghost and changed his vote strangely from Grillick to Badplayer.

-What actually happened to Badplayer? He needs to tell us what happened and how he...is still with us..

While our Mayor seems to have many unanswered questions hanging over him, I do not think its a wise idea to chop his head of! We need our Mayor in this dire situation we have ended in.


I think we need to ask ourselves this: Why was RogueKnigth killed?
I belive I have a theory. What if she was killed due to the infidelity with Bad Player? Not in anger, but as a insidous plot to get the Mayor killed by our own hands! He would be very suspicious, after all. But it would not have been wise of the mayor to have his wife killed if he was the werewolf, as he would have been the the first in line of suspects.

We need to be clever about what we do, cause it seems these wolves are clever about what they do! Do not just take what you see at face value! Are we certain we are not being duped?

We should stil be weary of being duped, even if he isnt a very useful mayor. We shouldnt play into the wolves hands. That, to me, is the gravest mistake we can do.

<returns to town with a bag of weeds and a tree branch>

Suspicions persons, I am back as, promising. Now more suspicions. Not ahh who-suspicions, what-ahh-suspicions. Land's sake! Sneakyness. Some people, or maybe ahh, elves, are as high as things. But why?

Our Mayor is, um, up to things. But hmm? But ... is not sneaky about it!? Admits being oh, out, roaming at night. Mysterious alibis. Is, does, wants the Mayor to lose his ... hmm, head? Fish smell! As high as things yes, but, well, maybe the 'things' is, different, er, not a 'werewolf things'? Embarrasing things?

Land's sake! Mayor smell, smells of fish, maybe, yes, not wolf?

Goloms. :scared: Many rememories badly. Is to ahh, be, er, to be expected. Only umm, ooh, ... five years ago. Three. Three years ago. Riots, er, the goloms. Now, Grillick, so many votes so, ah, so fast to chop Grillick. And someone, the muttering person. Again, muttering chopup Grillick.

Land's sake! Someone, someones? want, the ahh goloms dead. But for because being up to high things? For , er, well... sneakyness reasons not werewolf reasons?

The scholar looks at the other villagers and then looks down, obviously in the middle of some sort of internal struggle. Finally she looks up, and when she does so, her expression is grim.

"It seems a bit too convenient that the mayor's wife is killed just when the affair is revealed... but as others have pointed out, that is a nearly too obvious. I do not, in all honesty, believe that our mayor is one of the werewolves, but I shall vote for his lynching anyway. Why? As has been pointed out, if the mayor dies, we'll be killing two people at a time whenever there are ties. This is a good thing. If we villagers kill someone, there's a chance that we'll get a werewolf killed. If the werewolves kill someone, there's no chance that a werewolf will die in it. Therefore, it benefits us villagers if we lynch more people at a time... but for that to happen, the mayor must first be removed from power."

"I'm sorry, D'Artagnan59. I had no ill will against you, but I do not wish our whole town to die in the hands of werewolves, either. It is in times such as these that tough choices must be done."

{Updated to post #244}

That's brilliant thinking there Xuenay. In future, we could get two executions per day... excellent.

{BTW, is this still a 48 hour day?}

Somehow, It doesn't seem like much else will happen, seeing as at least 2 hours passed without a single post here...

{There's been, what, 18 votes? If even half of the remainder show up and vote, we could be looking at a very different picture here.}

Didn't somebody whisper your name yesterday? Curious...

There is only one person in town who we know for a fact was not home for the last two nights, and who has lied about his whereabouts both nights. It is possible he is being framed, but if he is a wolf, his wife would HAVE to go- she already told us he was not home night one, and in dying that he was not home last night either. They killed her just outside the house- if he was home, surely he would have heard SOMETHING...

Now, I am visiting the temple to pray to Kilmorph.

Well, I can't be with my wife in the Promised Land because she would not be there. She commited adultery.

And I remember more now.

I WAS in my house. I DID hear something.

I have a horrible memory.

And to think the one I was protecting all this time would be the one who would lead this mob.
