Title: Werepenguins - The Perth Massacre
Post by: boydster on July 27, 2018, 04:18:35 PM
To Perth!

After the slaughter at Ben Lawers, the werepenguins knew they must press ever onwards. Their appetite for human flesh had been piqued, and with not a single soul left living in town, they set their sights Eastward. On the horizon, they could see the faint glow of a larger town. Yes. That's where they would go next. No one would even suspect them, as they had left no witnesses alive.

They headed to Loch Tay, careening through the waters to the river. As they began to notice signs of civilization, the werepenguins abandoned the water and fled into the hills of the Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park. There, perched in the cliffside tower, looking down upon the town of Perth, they planned their attack. And the sun began to rise.

---

The Greyfriar's Bar had been the scene of a rather incredible night of drinking and partying. Some thought it was because of the Blood Moon that was to rise the following day. Others blamed the tourists, who seemed to have shown up in droves that evening. Whatever the reason, the music was loud, the beer flowed like water, strangers became the best of friends, and as the night wound down, many found themselves passed out on the banks of the River Tay unable to stumble their way back to their beds.

It's dawn. The sun rises, and 12 very hungover and very tired individuals struggle to find their feet. What happened last night? Where are we? IS THAT A RIVER I'M SLEEPING NEXT TO? Slowly, they all realize they blacked out after a night of most excellent partying. They don't recognize each other, but then again, why would they? It had been dark in the bar, and they were quite drunk. As they look around though, something seems... off.

There's a pool of blood in the grass alongside the river. It trails off toward the water. There is... IS THAT A FOOT? Holy shit, there's a human foot, still in a shoe, gnawed off just above the ankle sitting at the edge of the water. Further down, a finger with a wedding band still on it. Next to that finger, the very tip of what was unmistakeably a werepenguin flipper. There had been rumors about the werepenguins before, but no one in Perth had seen one yet. In fact, it had become something of a local myth. But this. This was no myth.

---

Of the 12 people now standing together, 2 knew they had infiltrated the human circle of trust and they must work together to destroy them. The game is afoot!

How Werepenguin Works
(shamelessly lifted from Crouton & Lord Wilmore)

Okay, first off, anyone who doesn't understand the game or any part of it, feel free to send me a PM and I will clear it up for you. I know most of you haven't played this before, so here's a general outline:

There are 2 Penguins (chosen at random) and 10 Villagers (including one Exorcist and one psychic, also chosen at random) in the game. The penguins will be identified as follows:

Pebbles McWaddlebottom
Fishcakes von Peckington


The game is based on 'rounds': each round lasts 48 hours. This is made up of a 24 hour 'day' period (i.e. when it is daytime in the game) and a 24 hour night period (when it is nightime in the game). Why does a Werepenguin day last two days in real time? Well, we have lots of people from lots of countries and hence lots of timezones at FES, and I want to give everyone a fair chance to vote/talk/play, and a 48 hour round is the only way to do this.



Villagers


For the Villagers, the aim is to kill all the Werepenguins. At the outset of the game, the Villagers do not know who the Werepenguins are; it is up to them to figure it out.

The Villagers can vote to 'lynch' someone they suspect of being a Werepenguin during the day cycle of the game. To do so, they must secure a certain number of votes (the number is decided by yours truly). Of course, the Werepenguins can also vote as no-one knows who they are! People who have already died in the course of the game are not allowed to talk during the day, and hence cannot vote.

The village oracle, known locally as TruthTerra is on the side of the Villagers; he/she gets one chance each night to make a guess and find out whether or not someone is a Werepenguin. TruthTerra sends me a PM, and I tell him/her whether or not that player is a Werepenguin. Like everyone else in the game, TruthTerra can vote in the lynch.

There is also an Exorcist among you. The Exorcist may choose one player to keep safe each night. During the night, if the player he is protecting is attacked, he will perform a ceremony that has a 50% chance of chasing the Werepenguin-demon away - thus, saving the Villager.


Werepenguins

For the Werepenguins, they need to kill all of the Villagers.

Unlike the Villagers, each Werepenguin knows who all the other Werepenguins are. Every night, a designated Werepenguin can send me a PM telling me who they want to kill, and then that person will be killed. The Penguins take it in turns: Pebbles the first night, Fishcakes the second. On the third night, it is Pebbles' turn again. If a Werepenguin dies, the Werepenguins do not lose a turn; instead the turns alternate between the remaining Werepenguins. The following morning, I will reveal who was killed, and how.

Game Rules


1. The first rule of Werepenguin is that you do not break the game.

2. The second rule of Werepenguin is THAT YOU DO NOT BREAK THE GAME. A not uncommon event in WW games is that having been betrayed by his/her fellow Penguins, a dead Penguin reveals their identities. This is a dickish thing to do. Seriously, Penguins are bastards, and they will do anything to save their own hides. If they think you're as good as dead, they will betray you and join the other villagers in voting to have you lynched, just to avoid suspicion. This is completely normal, so please don't be a whiny bitch about it. Remember, even if you die as a Penguin, if the Penguins eventually win, you also win.


Long story short: Penguins turn on Penguins. Deal with it. If you ruin the game for everybody, I will probably ban you for a month or something. It's very annoying.

3. Don't edit your posts! Just make another one. This is no big deal, but if you edit your post, you lose your vote that round, so it's in your interest not to do so.

4. Make it clear who you are voting to lynch. I want to see the words ['vote to lynch *insert name here*'] to count a post as a vote. You can say '[I vote to lynch]' or just '[vote to lynch]', but I want to see the words '[VOTE TO LYNCH (name)]' in that order. Don't say 'vote billy' or 'lynch John', because in a certain context these could look like suggestions rather than votes. If it's unclear, I just won't count it. It isn't that hard to put three words in front of someone's name in the correct order.

4a.  Brackets, that's the ticket.  example, [vote to lynch so and so]

5. Don't post during the day-cycle of the game if you have been killed. Dead players can only talk at night. Just to be clear, lynches happen during the day and Werepenguins/TruthTerra/Exorcist PM at night. Check my last update; if a lynch is on, it's daytime. If I've asked the Penguins/TruthTerra/Exorcist to PM, it's night.

6. TruthTerra and the Exorcist cannot tell people they are TruthTerra or the Exorcist (at least not within this topic). Obviously, I cannot control what you do elsewhere (PM, IM, IRC etc.), but beware; especially with TruthTerra, not all may be as it seems...


7. As per the title, if you're not playing, you're not playing. You can't join late due to the mechanics of the game, and I don't want you posting if you're not involved. I'll just delete any posts you make. If anyone gets trollish though, I will hand out suspensions.

Most of all, have fun, and POST. It's way more fun if you get involved, instead of just showing up and voting every now and again. Plus, inactivity can really kill a game based on votes, so try and stay active if you can.

Question.  Are the rules different than the last round?  PM's and such?

Also.  Disclaimer.  I may attempt role playing during this, haven't decided yet.  Try not to take anything I might say personally and I promise I'll do the same.

Post by: boydster on July 27, 2018, 04:51:21 PM
That's a very good question, Crouton. I can't control PMs, and so I didn't really state it as an official rule, but I do think it would be best if the players can have a gentlemanperson's agreement to play the game out in the open. That being said, it's not an actionable offense. However, the villagers and/or werepenguins may decide to use suspicions of private messaging to influence the choices of those around them.

Yes! We are in the first day phase. It will be daytime until 7pm US Eastern Time tomorrow. There are a little over 21 hours to decide who to lynch, if anyone.

Title: Re: Werepenguins - The Perth Massacre
Post by: Shifter on July 27, 2018, 07:15:11 PM
Actually SCG and Jane are unlikely to be reprising their werepenguin roles (males game less boring) and will probably be the first to be taken being widely deemed as safe.  Lynching them is a waste. Plus I'm interested to see how they die after what they did to me!

If the werepenguins were randomly chosen there's no reason to assume they were not chosen.

Well that's just rude.

Yep it's possible we'll be chosen, but equally we're more likely to have not have been. Which does make us likely targets because we know how the penguins think, we're in the best position to spot suspicious behaviour. And I'm well aware that saying that's probably signed my death warrant, but I expect the penguins'll figure it out sooner or later so eh.

Important question! Does this game feature the ability to lynch the narrator?

I've made a decision. You've perspective on all of this is wrong.  There's nothing to believe that these penguins will attack us.  The only thing that might provoke them.  Such as Roundy.  I'm warning you Roundy.  If you don't calm down your homicidal rhetoric I'm afraid I'll have to vote to lynch you.

We've been over this. The scientist did a shit job. And yes, it's unlikely that a penguin will be lynched. But do you really want to wait until the penguins have killed everyone to decide who the penguin is?

Out of curiosity, how does the dice rolling process work?  Did you roll two 6 sided dice and then go down the list to that number for each role?

I assigned each player a number, 1 thru 12, based on when they signed up (first player enrolled was number 1, second player enrolled was number 2, etc). Then I rolled a 12 sided die 4 times. The first 2 rolls were for the penguins, the last 2 rolls were for the special villager roles. There were no duplicate numbers that came up.

Can we see a picture of this 12 sided die so we know that it was not infact two 6 sided dice? 

Dammit, I thought I had an angle.

That's a fair request. Here is the die, in a picture taken just moments ago. The "10" that is showing right now is just the side that happened to be up when I placed the die on the table.

While I tend to like to skip the lynching on the first day due to lack of information, I'm open to getting someone knocked out to see if we have any luck.   If we lynch, I think it'd be good to have a friendly agreement we go after someone who has not participated, if there are any such players close to end time.

Even if he is not a werepenguin, it is best he is disposed of. He will vote to lynch innocent people every time

You haven't put your vote in square brackets so it might not be too late to rescind it. Your driving a wedge which could lead to a block and no one gets lynched today. If you change yours to pez we can most likely bag ourselves a penguin. Unless of course, you don't want to get the penguins.....

Either way a vote for me is a vote to lose the game. Bad idea. I'd be suspicious of anyone who wants to lynch an innocent. After Pez, I'll be watching you....

Things sure have taken a turn for the worse for Shifter. Will the rest of the villagers come to his rescue? Will they seal his fate? Find out soon! We have only 9 hours till the sun sets on Game Day 1.

I vote to lynch Roundy.

Not that it matters because Shifter seems to have more votes, but eh, putting my suspicions on record. I think Shifter is just terrible at seeming innocent rather than a werepenguin, and I could be wrong, but it's rather bloodthirsty to kill one of our meatshields. He's been particulalry bloodthirsty so far, which is out of character.

I'm just trying to get into the spirit of the game. I mean obviously I was joking about lynching you and SCG right out of the gate. And really if you look at old games I've played here you'd see it's really not out of  character at all. The fact that I ditched that line of thinking and went with someone who seems like a legitimate threat should show that I'm thinking rationally, not recklessly, and the fact that you are now trying to convince the others that I'm suspicious based on bullshit evidence is making me legit wonder about you.

Remember how Jane played last time, people. She controlled the game by subtly nudging us in all the wrong directions we were already thinking about. It would be a mistake to let her control the game again, and I get the vibe she's already trying to do that. Being a penguin twice in a row seems unlikely but she is just as likely to be a penguin as anyone.

It's not that you threatened us, it's that you came out of the gate bloodthirsty while last time you were much quieter, calm and considered until you had days worth of evidence to go on. And then you're the first non-idiot to cast a vote, it's quite a switch up.
And immediately going for the "You accused me, so you're the penguin," tactic really isn't helping. Please just don't be the psychic pulling a BHS.

It would be a mistake to let her control the game again, and I get the vibe she's already trying to do that.
I've made maybe three posts actually discussing suspicions and tactics. Hardly controlling.
And actually last time my thing was just to focus on what others had said and encourage wrong votes, that way I was never the one to spark an idea and meant there was less attention on me. So, free tips for those looking for suspicious behaviour.

That's what you're doing here. You're echoing Crouton's earlier comment about me, magnifying it a bit so that later in the game the others will be thinking about it, and Bam down goes another innocent villager. My suspicion of you has nothing to do with the fact that you're accusing me, it's because you are making yourself look suspicious.

Also I did say last time that I'm usually in favor of lynching someone on the first day. I was just going along with the mob in abstaining. It was a mistake, obviously, and who was one of the people leading the charge to not lynch? I'm talking to her right now.

Well, yes, I was a penguin in the last game, of course I didn't want to get lynched.
Speaking of Crouton though, I doubt anyone really takes his quip seriously. It's one of those instances where you can pretty much read the precise tone it was written in. But what I do remember from the last game is that added sense of paranoia when you're a penguin that wants to get to the night and really be able to do something, and that worry when someone mentions your name, even if it's obviously a joke. It's a far cry from how it feels as a regular villager. You don't strike me as a BHS, so I doubt you'd act like he did.
Congrats, your opening was suspicious and your overreaction has convinced me. I was half-kidding with the lynch, just because there were enough votes for Shifter it's not like it'd have happened; I was wary and wouldn't have complained if it did end up going through for you, but I didn't expect it to.

You suspect me because I accused you, and because I was a penguin in the last game.

5 votes remain. Those 5 votes could make all the difference. Will the remaining villagers band together to lynch Roundy or Pez, in a shocking turn of events? Will they band together, but vote for someone who has not yet had a vote cast against them, thereby ensuring a lynch does not take place at all? Or will Shifter be exiting the game on Day 1?

Wasn't sure if I'd be awake by the time voting closed so I did what you all wanted and voted based on little information. Just like you all want. Then you accuse me of being a penguin for it.

Hate to say it but Jane is the only smart one here. Doesn't say much for the rest of you....

I'm a black belt in karate! Touch me and I'll rip your God damned throats out! To hell with your mob mentality bullshit. You want a penguin? Look no further than Pez and Roundy. You're welcome. Not that you losers deserve it. Voting on personalities AGAIN. You like throwing away the game it seems

Title: Re: Werepenguins - The Perth Massacre
Post by: boydster on July 28, 2018, 01:47:48 PM
After much deliberation, the villagers had decided they suspected the werepenguins had, in fact, infiltrated their group and now walked among them. However, they were not about to simply carry on with their lives and allow the werepenguins to grow comfortable. No, not these villagers.

They pulled together in a meeting by the river. Accusations flew across the group like poo in a monkey fight. Who should hang? Who are the penguins? IS IT JANE AGAIN? No! Roundy! Wait - it's that Shifter character, isn't it?

Finally, after all had made their case for whom they suspected and why, a vote was held. Shifter would hang this night. A message must be sent to the penguins. The villagers were going to destroy them, starting with their suspected mole-werepenguin. Shifter.

Not about to allow his life to simply be snuffed out like a candle at the end of its wick, Shifter began shrieking in a pitch and volume he had not exercised before. It was like an incredibly loud fossa's mating cry, paired with the sound of an infant on a plane - you know the one; the infant that doesn't yet know how to pop its ears and is in excruciating pain. Nearby glass windows shook, one or two even broke.

As he was being dragged by his hair to the gallows, he began accusing the other villagers of conspiring against him. Even those that had not voted to lynch him. Through tears and strangely high-pitched shrieks, he yelled, "THIS IS NOT THE END. YOU FUCKERS! THIS IS NOT TH....."

His words were cut off as the rope around his neck came to its end and pulled tight. Shifter twitched. He peed in his pants one last time. His life force was gone.

Shifter, the village Exorcist, hanged to death just before sunset on the eve of the first night of what would be later known as the Perth Massacre.


---

Little did the villagers know, but those shrieks were actually at a frequency that was resonant with the skulls of werepenguins. 3 werepenguins also died with Shifter, their heads exploding like tiny pimples being squeezed, and a slurry of blood and brains staining the walls of the lookout tower they had claimed the previous night. However, Pebbles McWaddlebottom and Fishcakes von Peckington were not among the dead, and they were now eager to avenge their fallen brothers.

---

The villagers set up camp at Greyfriar's Bar. Night would be upon them soon. This was a somber day, to say the least, and they all needed a drink to calm their nerves.

Night falls early on this sad day. Pebbles, please send me the name of your first victim. TruthTerra, let me know who you would like to do a reading on so you can learn whether they are a normal villager or a deadly werepenguin. And Exorcist, if you would like to protect someone on this night, please let me know the name of the person under your care.

Jura had slept late, really late, a fondness for the water of life had always been a downfall.
Now stumbling into the group, with the remains of a drinking companion I don't remember scattered amongst the heather and the survivors baying for blood, I feel like I need another drink.
But suspicious eyes are on me and at least two of the owners are were-penguins, most here have some link to those unfortunates that never made it from whatever Ben it was that the last lot died at, what was learned?
Mostly that penguins are canny and that personal dislike is folly, luckily there isn't a relation of the Boydster character here, who was to detective work what Charlie Chaplin with a plank would have been to a glass factory.
Shifter seems to have been selected whilst I slept, if he's a penguin I may be dammed for not voting

DON'T LET THE DEATHS AT BEN LAWERS BE IN VAIN
You can listen to me, I caused some of them.

We already know Shifter and Pez act absurdly guilty even if they're innocent. We've lost one villager. It doesn't mean Pez is off the table, but get something a bit more than him acting the same way he did when he was guilty.

Ichi, deadsirius, Bullwinkle and jura were the least active on the first day, not really contributing anything. Bullwinkle did post, and Bullwinkle and Ichi still voted, take that as you will.

It seems the narrator made a bit of an oversight. Shifter was not the normal villager that he seemed to be. He was, in fact, the Exorcist. Truly, this is a dark night.
So that's two separate games where a useful person ends up being the first to get lynched. Great. I don't think he did anything stupid like tell everyone who he was but correct me if I'm wrong.

Enough votes for the lynch were already cast so that the outcome had been determined. Plus, it's Scotland. There was a storm rolling in, so it got dark very quickly after you guys decided to kill the Exorcist. Which, by the way, I'm pissed about. That was a great character that I didn't even get to do a single coin-flip-attempted-save for. But I'm going to let that go and move on.

OK back in character.

Nope. No PMs from me. You guys are cursed. In both games you managed to strike off the one important piece which theoretically you should have less chance of hitting than the 2 penguins. And you didn't hit a single penguin at all last game. Cursed.

As a ghost I have even more clarity.

jroa is one to watch. He is only playing dumb blaming the poor performance on the other game. You notice on this one he will blindly follow the majority. His posts are neutral in nature. He is overly careful not to piss anyone off. He will go along with mob mentality to remain inconspicuous which means he will bring nothing to the table as far as 'who dun it'. You gain nothing keeping him and bag yourself a werepenguin by killing him

As for pez, I'd hang him just for fun really but more because it's deserved. Just like BHS it was HIS vote that sealed the deal and screwed you all. Intentional or not, he is the curse. You would have been much better off following my lead and lynching him.

Ironically now Shifter's a ghost the one thing we really need is an exorcist.
Anyways, I feel like taking a lesson from Jura, this is probably more fun to roleplay with rather than just do generic analysis.

Unable to sleep, I wander past Shifter's hanging corpse, sure I can somehow still hear his voice. Haunted by dreams so clear they might as well be memories, another life where we were not only threatened by the penguins, but I was one of them. I know how they think, and how they would act.
And with a chill I wonder if the penguins know, and whether I'll live to see the sunrise.
Everyone drinks and sits around, afraid, and I keep my distance. Can't help but shiver when I get close to Roundy, Ichi and Bullwinkle.
I remember a dream where the penguins were almost discovered when one who had otherwise been quiet placed their vote to lynch an innocent, and I shuffle away from Ichi. And remembering the earlier confrontation, it's hard to stay near Roundy.

It's going to be a long night.

Just like in Ben Lawers--someone who is not only innocent but actually possessed of useful powers has made himself unnecessarily conspicuous and died an early death because of it.  Whoever the Truthterra is better keep a low profile...

That being said I don't think I'm any closer to knowing who to suspect.  The last time I was sure I knew who it was and ended up being dead wrong, so...guess we can't trust anyone.

All we know is tonight, one of us will die.  Godspeed my friends, hope to see you in the morning...

How did I make myself so conspicuous? By putting in my vote before I went to bed? Hmmm. Perhaps next time I'll remain in the shadows and not participate at all. Seems to me the people here honestly believe a werepenguin would draw attention to themselves. Fools. The werepenguins are the most silent and neutral sounding players here.... The fact I drew attention to myself should have indicated I was a regular human.

Well, ultimately, you listened to Pez (again!) and killed a most useful piece on the board. Have fun dying sick and gruesome deaths. I suppose at least mine went quick. But fuck me, get my rotting corpse down soon. It's embarrassing!  :o

I never felt you were a penguin. 

I'm still working on strategies so some of these plans aren't going to be all that great right now.

My plan here was to vote to lynch the first person that voted to lynch someone.  I was hoping this would spark a very minor kerfuffle.  The idea is that if we're  sitting here quietly, it gives the penguins a massive advantage.  If we're all screaming at each other like a reality tv star then the chaos will reveal things about other people.  I'm sorry you had to be the sacrifice.  I would have gladly taken your place if I could have.

Not inherently the case. Getting involved and trying to encourage people to vote for innocents and distract from the guilty is werepenguin behaviour. Worked well last time. Hence why we should be wary of those trying to spearhead lynch campaigns for no good reason, and who seem very rope-happy.
I don't think you were guilty though I'll admit, you were acting the same way as you did before. Ditto for Pez. Doesn't remove you from the list of suspects, just means we'd need more.
Though the way this is going Pez is going to probably end up being our psychic.

I was on a tight timeline yesterday. I had to go drink many beers for a friend's birthday. And that meant I had to write up and post the lynch recap before I left because I definitely wasn't going to do it from my phone.

After the tragic lynching of the village Exorcist, the villagers retired to the Greyfriar's Bar. Some, to think about what they had done, and others, to drown their sorrows. Ichimaru Gin :] is in deep contemplation. He reaches to take up his copy of Earth Not A Globe from the pocket inside his jacket. He always finds the wisdom it contains helpful in times like these. But wait - it's not there. Ah! It's setting on the table already. He opens the tome and begins reading.

It starts as a headache, something like a migraine. Then it manifests into cramps all over the body. After a little while, it feels like thousands of ants crawling underneath his skin. Ichimaru Gin :] is tripping balls. "WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME?"

The hallucination intensifies. He feels like the Earth is curving around on itself, wrapping into a ball, leaving him clinging to the outside and trying not to fall off. Suddenly, he starts feeling every movement of its dance around the sun. Ichi is overwhelmed by this intense sensation, frozen simultaneously in fear and debilitating pain, unable to escape the terrifying feeling that he was now flying through the universe on giant wet rock, and - Suddenly he is pulled back into reality as he feels a hand on his shoulder. Relieved for a moment, he decides to turn and face the person helping him. But as he begins to turn, he has a terrifying realization. It's no human hand. It's a flipper. He turns around completely now to face his visitor and sees Pebbles McWaddlebottom maniacally laughing at his misery!

Ichi was unaware when he picked up his book, but the night before, knowing he'd seek guidance from it the very next evening, Pebbles took the chance to expose it to the blood moon's light, amplified through a telescope for maximum effect. That night the moonshramp had turned to deadly blood shramp, magnifying the negative effects of lunar radiation. Anyone picking the book up would immediately feel the intense side effects and eventually be reduced to nothing but a miserable twitching wreck. Remaining hidden in the mini-fridge in Ichi's room was a challenge, but Pebbles was quite flexible and brought a long straw to ensure he was able to breathe. There, Pebbles bided his time, waiting for his victim to be neutralized, before emerging from the fridge to deliver the final blow. An act of mercy, more so than an attack at this point. Pebbles thrust his flipper directly into Ichimaru's heart. Ichi takes one last breath before life escapes his eyes, and falls on the floor in a pool of blood. Pebbles takes his pocket knife out and hastily starts cutting him up, packing up Ichi's remains to bring back to the cliffside tower. Ichi looked like that awesome Lego creation you made, one which some little cousin wrecked and you were too bored to repair, so it's now a barely recognizable assortment of bricks.

Ichimaru Gin :] is no more.

Seriously, stop channelling BHS with the innocent victim shtick, even if it's true it only makes you look more guilty and trying to manipulate. I voted for you because it wouldn't have done anything, and you've been bringing up the fact I suspected you far more than I ever did. Any times my suspicions might've waned, you just bring them right back. I think you're smarter than BHS, so what conclusion am I meant to draw?

Also, yep, it is one of my suspects down the drain. Which is weird. What penguin in their right mind would target someone who people suspected, who suspicions could easily be stirred against and might be lynched in the daytime? There's motive there.

I'm going to mourn Ichi, try to puzzle out a few things, probably get so drunk at the funeral I pass out for eight hours, but then I seriously think we should take a look at Roundy.

I think there's a lot of momentum towards lynching Roundy.  But we've got 24 hours so let's try discussing this a little more before actual votes are cast.

Are there any other people we're suspecting?  I myself do suspect Roundy but honestly I'm not all that confident about it.  Can anyone think of a better target to lynch?

The ability to sleep on a bar-stool is an art, one that Jura had unfortunately never mastered, consequently when he started to surface, he did so in some discomfort. Sliding from a semi sitting position against the bar, to smack his head on the brass footrail, his leg spasmed out cracking shin against the juke-box, the machine that had swallowed money, threats and half a pint of heavy the night before without uttering a single note gave a faint click and very faintly began playing the obscure Scottish folk star, Paolo Nutini into Jura’s ear.
Laying on his back, the music washing gently over him as if coming from a different world, he dared to open his eyes, and Paolo sang;

 
But the flames couldn’t go much higher
We find gods and religions to
To paint us with salvation
But no one
No nobody
Can give you the power


The view looking up revealed by the morning light enhanced with the neon flicker from the juke-box was familiar, like a wooden cathedral, the hidden world of the under-stool, a strange place of name tags, log numbers, random scribbles, lost post its, but most importantly, artworks.
No barroom Michelangelo’s had laboured here though, these creations were Rorschach masterpieces organically constructed from the detritus that gets wiped beneath, chewing-gum and bogies mostly, they took time and a certain frame of mind to decipher, Jura knew this was important, Paolo was telling him.

Over fear and into freedom
You just got to hold on!
You just got to hold on!


Letting his eyes glaze, the blobs, swirls and stains, shifted and slithered until patterns and figures began to form, allow your gaze to brush them lightly, never force and it will come. And there it was, a story board of matchless simplicity, tears threatened to obscure the message, but Jura would not be denied.

The blind child had been left to play with the pińata but had wandered, and was now poised to strike the wasp nest hanging from the tree on the edge of the ravine.

Jura fumbled for his felt-tip pen he kept for times such as this, Paolo urged him on; 

From which we’ll rise over love
Over hate
From this iron sky

In scratchy blue, Jura wrote; Aggression without wise regulation is self-harm.
 
And Paolo sang on, as he hurried to find the others, he had a plan that would save them, Jura knew what to do.

And Paolo sang on.

Over fear and into freedom
You just got to hold on!
You just got to hold on!

Jura’s Proclamation.

Stop killing, we have a prophet working for us, he must be allowed to work.

No one to vote before the prophet.

If the prophet knows who the penguins are he will vote for a penguin whilst saying, "but it could have been so and so."

We all pile in and kill one and get the next one the next day.

A penguin may lie and get one of us killed but still a penguin dies, and the prophet works on.

If the prophet does not yet know then we need numbers to shroud him, if we lynch on a hunch we may kill our only hope or diminish the pool they have to choose from, history tells us that random lynching’s do not work.

Jura.

Or…. Kill Bully, Why?

I think the penguins would have enjoyed the deja-vu of us killing an important person straight of the bat, that would have led them straight to Bully as the logical first strike (as he was last time) to increase the parallel, instead they chose Gin.

Also, Bully having been told why he was targeted last time would have come out of the traps with a more proactive persona, but he didn’t, re-setting to default one-liners, as he doesn’t have to worry.

I saw him lay an egg! (actually, that’s a lie, sorry)

(But I still think the proclamation is the best way, it's just a slow morning at work)

I can't decide who it is yet but I will say that if Roundy was a penguin, seeing as he was still a prime suspect before, he wouldn't have murdered another prime suspect, since all the suspicion would fall onto him, with the other suspect removed.
I only half-agree. It doesn't make sense for any penguin to kill a prime suspect, if things stayed the same we'd have lynched either Roundy or Ichi presumably and both are innocents, which is what the penguins want.
There's nothing I can see anyone get out of Ichi's death. Sure, it sparks confusion, but not in a 'what could the motive be?' way, but in a 'that was a legitimately terrible decision' way. It doesn't make sense to go after people that might die anyway.
The only benefit I've seen anyone get from this, and I've had a while to think, is Roundy deflecting suspicion. It seems too tenuous for a framejob, but beyond that...

It's not concrete, I'll be the first to admit that, but do we have any more likely suspects?

Stop killing, we have a prophet working for us, he must be allowed to work.

No one to vote before the prophet.

If the prophet knows who the penguins are he will vote for a penguin whilst saying, "but it could have been so and so."
We don't know who the prophet is. Maybe I am, maybe you are, maybe Roundy is and I've gotten it completely wrong. Either way the prophet can't reveal themselves because they'd either be a) a penguin lying to trick us, or b) dead the next night because the penguins saw.
For example, maybe Pez is the prophet and he's saying Roundy's safe because he checked last night. That's possible; it's also possible Pez is a penguin working to save his penguin compatriot, or that Roundy's innocent and Pez is just smarter than me.
I agree that staying quiet and letting the prophet work is one route, and should be considered, my problem is that it becomes very luck based. We pretty much have to rely on the prophet discovering both penguins before getting eaten. In that case, reducing the pool of likely suspects will help.

Random lynching didn't work before because a penguin actively influenced opinion and altered focus. In light of that, I'll take a leaf out of your book.

Jane's Proclamation
I stumble up onto a bar stool to yell my theories while no one listens.

Never forget your suspicions. Don't let anything distract you from the people you did worry about: that might be the penguins' goal.
If you get new information and things change, adapt accordingly, but remember what made you suspect in the first place, see if it's outweighed.

Last time the innocents had SCG in their sights, but they were convinced to go a different direction. Hunch-based lynching can work so long as we trust ourselves.

I will pour a drink out for our lost brothers.  Frankly I suspected ichimaru (not sure why...I just did for some reason).  Wrong again.

Anyway, I figure it's about time to get myself on the radar a bit.  One thing I've learned in my studies of werepenguin behavior is that they tend to pick off the least suspected party members first, allowing the more suspicious to destroy each other in the meantime.  Since no one has yet mentioned me, I'm beginning to feel like a prime target for the penguins.

Here's my thoughts at the moment:

Jane/SCG:  the only ones with a proven track record as penguins.  They ran the board last time and know what they're doing.  Highly improbable that it would be both of them again, but I wouldn't rule out one of them.

Jura:  Seems to be the only one advocating for inaction.  Honestly I can see the wisdom in this, but...it would be a brilliant piece of misdirection for a penguin watching its own hide...

Roundy:  Seems to have drawn suspicion, though I don't really know why.  His response does not encourage me, but for some reason I don't like choice.  Again, we all know what my instinct is worth though...

Pez:  as before, he seems like a possibility...but only just a possibility.  He's hard to read but I'm not quite ready to throw suspicion on him...yet.

Jroa:  suspicious to me...but maybe that's just the way he is.  I would probably support a movement to lynch, though admittedly not for any great reason.

DuckDodgers:  I think it's quite likely he's either the truthterra...or a penguin.  This would be a high risk/high reward type of choice, so I'm willing to go with the majority on this one.

Bullwinkle:  probably benign, but...maybe.

Crouton:  a little too innocent-seeming.  If the penguins don't take him early he will become suspect to me but not yet.

In short, to narrow it down by half, I could see going after jroa, DuckDodgers (risky), Jura, and Space Cowgirl or Jane (but not both).

Hopefully this makes me less of an obvious target for the devil birds...

Since our instincts are always wrong, I recommend intentionally targeting whoever we think the prophet is. That way he'll be safe from us.

If I was a penguin, it would make much more sense for me to advocate to lynch or kill people whom others think are innocent.  They are the competition as one less vote for them is a more likely vote for the penguins.  I would also advocate to lynch people that I feel are on my tracks, or, I could advocate to lynch random people, like SCG and Jane did in order to throw everyone against each other. 

I don't know, and feel bad about speculating.

If I had to vote I'd vote jroa or SCG so far. SCG is doing exactly the exact same thing she was doing last game. I have a hunch for jroa but... Our hunches have been pretty bad so far. And I don't think both of them are penguins, but probably one of them is. Not sure. Next on my list are probably deadsirius and Jane. I need a bit more time though. I don't think I'll vote before someone else does. When does the day end?

One interesting thing about the prophet is that the penguins are as much in the dark about this individual as we are. So openly speculating on who it is could be a bad thing.

Actually I'd say penguins are closer to knowing who it is than the rest. penguins actually know the affiliation of one more person other than themselves, while the rest of us know no one.

What the F am I saying here?  I reread it and it does not make any sense.  You people can lynch me, if you want.  I can't even type a cohesive paragraph, and I am neither a penguin, nor a psychic or exorcist, so a vote for me is not a vote against the good guys.  What am I even saying?

Maybe I'm wrong, but this seems a bit like a reverse psychology trick from jroa. He asks to be lynched so that we won't do it. But then again he also did that in last game. I'm so confused  >:(

I suggest we take the same caution as last time: don't vote until we have a consensus. We don't want to waste a vote. Current suspects seem to be:

Roundy - Was first to vote with limited information, defensive, only one who'd get anything from Ichi's death
SCG - is good at being a penguin, keeping a low profile,
Me - is good at being a penguin,
Jura - Advocates for inaction, could be playing us,
jroa - is just generally suspicious
Bullwinkle - would have been a good choice to be killed if penguins were trying to dissuade, kept a low profile
deadsirius - reasons?
Crouton - also reasons

You know I'm wary of Roundy, but otherwise Bullwinkle and Jura seem suspected. And people just want to kill jroa, but what's new there?
Title: Re: Werepenguins - The Perth Massacre

Well, a vote for me is at the least not a vote to kill the exorcist or the scientist, or what ever he is called.  I am not a penguin, though.  But, if you blood thirst people want to kill someone, at leat you will not be killing someone important.

Also, I don't lie.

I will pour a drink out for our lost brothers.  Frankly I suspected ichimaru (not sure why...I just did for some reason).  Wrong again.

Anyway, I figure it's about time to get myself on the radar a bit.  One thing I've learned in my studies of werepenguin behavior is that they tend to pick off the least suspected party members first, allowing the more suspicious to destroy each other in the meantime.  Since no one has yet mentioned me, I'm beginning to feel like a prime target for the penguins.

Here's my thoughts at the moment:

Jane/SCG:  the only ones with a proven track record as penguins.  They ran the board last time and know what they're doing.  Highly improbable that it would be both of them again, but I wouldn't rule out one of them.

Jura:  Seems to be the only one advocating for inaction.  Honestly I can see the wisdom in this, but...it would be a brilliant piece of misdirection for a penguin watching its own hide...

Roundy:  Seems to have drawn suspicion, though I don't really know why.  His response does not encourage me, but for some reason I don't like choice.  Again, we all know what my instinct is worth though...

Pez:  as before, he seems like a possibility...but only just a possibility.  He's hard to read but I'm not quite ready to throw suspicion on him...yet.

Jroa:  suspicious to me...but maybe that's just the way he is.  I would probably support a movement to lynch, though admittedly not for any great reason.

DuckDodgers:  I think it's quite likely he's either the truthterra...or a penguin.  This would be a high risk/high reward type of choice, so I'm willing to go with the majority on this one.

Bullwinkle:  probably benign, but...maybe.

Crouton:  a little too innocent-seeming.  If the penguins don't take him early he will become suspect to me but not yet.

In short, to narrow it down by half, I could see going after jroa, DuckDodgers (risky), Jura, and Space Cowgirl or Jane (but not both).

Hopefully this makes me less of an obvious target for the devil birds...

I can't hold that against you.  Even on the best of days I'm a bit spheniscidaeish.

I don't understand how Ichi's death helps Roundy, other than it's seemingly random. It doesn't make him more or less suspicious because of it though.

Jroa seems to be pulling a quasi BHS move and throwing himself on the sword for no good reason. This could be a high level con to reverse psychology us out of killing him, but I'm more inclined to believe his innocence for the time being.

You're not on my list, I was just breaking down what everyone had said as a summary.

I do disagree with your plan though for the reaosn I said; the psychic doesn't help us because we don't know who they are, we might well just brush off what they have to say. Right now they might know who everyone is, but that information isn't going to come across as any more than regular suspicions.
And on top of that, we can't find out who they are; anyone that claims might be a penguin trying to trick us, or they'll just get eaten.

But that’s it, if no one votes, then we last a few more days than the last debacle, the prophet should be able to survive at least long enough to find one while we act as meatshields.

They can vote, but to us that doesn't look like the prophet voting, that could be anyone voting, penguin or innocent. The only way I can see that working is if they find out who the penguins are, then die as that'll confirm their identity, but the time necessary to do that would mean the penguins picked a lot of us off.

Statistically, it's equally likely that any one here is a penguin. The games are distinct and as far as I'm aware, boydster didn't stack the deck or add some sort of correctional method to avoid a Jane/SCG penguin in this game.

Again, it makes no sense unless it's setting up the appearance of innocence for later in the game. In that case it makes perfect sense and is extremely clever.

I have no illusions that I am surviving the day. But since I still win if the villagers win even if I die I want my suspicions out there.

Okay,
step one. Everybody agrees not to vote this round, unless the prophet decides to.

If the prophet knows both penguins he just votes, says his 1st choice but in passing mentions his second option (cos basically he will be killed in the night). We pile in.

If a penguin decides to pretend, we pile in and lynch one of our own but next go he’s dead (we win as the ratio of penguins to villagers is then in our favour)

If the prophet doesn’t know, he keeps shtum until he does know, we don’t whittle down our numbers by flailing about and the penguins will probably reveal themselves by their opposition to the plan.

If the Prophet is crap or unlucky we die, but I reckon it’s better than, he said she said, I don’t like the cut of his jib, guessing.

If only we could figure out who accused Ichi in the first place...
Like I said, Ichi doesn't work as a framejob, he wasn't involved enough with anything, it's too tenuous a link. Sure, it takes away a target, except it takes away an innocent target and a target that the penguins would know to be innocent. Why would they do that? It's someone that several people were eyeing. They take away an innocent we might have lynched so that we... target an innocent we also might have lynched. There is no benefit one way or the other there, if anything they'd want us to lynch Ichi one day and you the next. This is more than a Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle's death said nothing because he wasn't involved and wasn't seriously considered.

You were the one that immediately used Ichi's death to try and curry favour. That is literally the only thing I've seen anyone get from it.

The only other motive I can see is as Duck said, if they were looking for the psychic, but even then Ichi is a weird first choice.

I'll be the first in line to admit no, I'm not certain. You could be innocent, you could also be guilty, I just don't have any more reason to suspect anyone else. Just a few hours left to sunset.

Okay,
step one. Everybody agrees not to vote this round, unless the prophet decides to.

If the Prophet is crap or unlucky we die, but I reckon it’s better than, he said she said, I don’t like the cut of his jib, guessing. 

And if the penguins eat the prophet? 1/8 chance for them, even if they were guessing and not going by how people are acting.
Plus, it's more than guessing: it gives us information. If it's anything like the last game, the penguins would have voted for Shifter, at least one of them would have happily let an innocent die. We have a shortlist of six top suspects that are likely to contain at least one penguin.
Yes, the prophet can go through them, but that takes six deaths. We can go through at twice the rate because the prophet is still working while we're lynching, and see how people respond to those votes. And yes, I'm well aware that saying that is going to alter the penguins' behaviour, but it's still worth acknowledging. Alterations will be just as noticable.
There are ten of us left. Two penguins.
Tonight: 1/5 chance of the prophet finding something useful
Next day: 2/9
Next day: 1/4...
Those aren't good odds for finding one, let alone two.

And if they sacrifice themselves after finding one, then we're back to the guessing you dislike when there are fewer of us left.
I agree that we should listen should the prophet choose to out themselves with reliable data, and they are the prophet, but that isn't something we should rely on.

I'm not going to have much time to post right before night falls. So I'm going to cast my vote within the hour. As it stands now, Jane is my top suspect and Jura is my #2. I'll likely be voting for Jane unless something more concrete comes up.

Imo Jura is slightly less suspicious to me.  I get being suspicious of Jane but her behavior is subtly different from the last game.  Space Cowgirl, on the other hand, her behavior is very similar to the last game.
You say Jane is acting different from last game, but she did a good job of blending in and driving votes. She did this by somewhat mirroring the group's behavior at the onset. This time, she is mirroring Jura's behavior somewhat. I'd venture 1 of the 2 are penguins, but likely not both.

Not saying don't suspect me, but in fairness my thing last game was pushing wrong votes. Turns out I was right last go to not vote Shifter  :P
I tried to blend in by acting the way I normally would, so you aren't going to see much difference regardless. Though I have to question saying that I'm mirroring Jura given that we seem to disagree pretty majorly.

Mirroring doesn't necessarily mean voting the same or suspecting the same. The posting style is more what I'm talking about. Going into the RP mode as well.

I'm distrustful of pretty much all of you, but Jane and Jura hAve piqued my interest. I'm willing to be changed, but there are only about 20 minutes before I must vote or lose out today.

Shifter is that bbq I smell?
Crouton - not saying anything particularly suspicious
Space Cowgirl - roasting marshmallows
Jane - is a clever player of this game, not particularly suspicious
Bullwinkle - making very few moose noises
DuckDodgers - slightly suspect
Ichimaru Gin :]   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
Pezevenk - can't get a read on him, really
Jura-Glenlivet II - slightly suspect
deadsirius - not suspicious yet
jroa - too intoxicated to tell
Roundy the Truthinessist - slightly suspect, but less than the others

I dunno...Jane feels more likely to me than Pezevenk, but it may just be because she's one of the most involved.

Jroa's behavior suggests one of two things...he's either a penguin, or he is inexplicably working in their favor by basically just throwing everything into confusion.

Cowgirl also seems fishy with this "roasting marshmallow" business.  I'm leaning in these directions...waiting to hear more opinions...

I will vote SCG, but I would like to know first what makes you suspect her?  I would also vote for Jane, or any of you f*ckers.  Pez is as good of a pick as any one else, and so am I.  Let us not forget Cruton from the last round.  And that boydster guy is still very suspicious as well.

It's partly intuition, which I admit is lousy.  Also I feel that we're better off voting to lynch more than one person as the conflict will give us more information.

Crouton did act extremely suspiciously that last round of werepenguin.  It's like he knew what role every had but he let the penguins win anyways.  Clearly working for the penguins.

Got to disagree. You missed a few suspects. I think it's one of the following:
Crouton
Space Cowgirl
Jane
Bullwinkle
DuckDodgers
Pezevenk
Jura-Glenlivet II
deadsirius
jroa
Roundy the Truthinessist

Also:
[I vote to lynch Space Cowgirl]

I have to vote someone because DD just voted for me and I don't want to risk dying, someone already voted SCG and SCG is acting exactly like the last game.

Well, if this is turning into chaos: I vote to lynch Bullwinkle
Just because round one he was staying out of sight, and round two he's just being bizarre. SCG is the only one that seems to have even slightly suspected Ducky, and then deadsirius thought he might be the truthterra so that vote is out of nowhere.

I am going to cast my vote for DD if we don't get some kind of consensus or a majority.  He is suspiciously quiet.

Why?
He's an innocent, they'd wanted to have been sure he was killed, especially when there was already a voice against him so it didn't seem suspicious.
That's part of why I'm suspicious of Roundy. Shifter did nothing he didn't do last game when we knew he was innocent, he wasn't suspicious at all. Starting the voting train that killed our exorcist is suspicious, and the same goes for Bullwinkle. Possibly SCG, though I'm used to distracting attention from her so I am biased on that count.

That's dumb. Shifter was going down anyways after the first couple votes, it was obvious. Why would a penguin bring attention on itself by voting for someone who'd die anyways? Maybe you knew that and that's why you voted for someone else  ???

Because there were twelve of us and no way to know whether a majority would vote. It's how it was in the last game too; I voted each and every time, and I'm pretty sure SCG did for most, at least.
I'm well aware that being the one to point out this tactic does make it look like I'm abusing it, but remember I was a penguin, I know how the role makes you think. It clearly didn't bring attention to them because no one mentioned it.

At least one, maybe two of the people on that list is a penguin. I'm certain of that, mark my words.

I have a method to my madness, if you'll just give me a chance to see how it plays out. I can say with certainty that you will not be happy if I die unless you're a penguin.

I'll admit, I went off the reservation when I voted for Pez as I was swayed by Lord Cruton's meta talk and wanting lively discussion. If I were able, I'd cast my vote for Jura instead. I've got no readings on deadsirius, so I have nothing to offer to that suspicion.

Simply sitting around an doing nothing is not the best of strategies though. It's a great one for the penguins as you literally cannot kill a penguin without lynching. It's a very penguin-like thing to suggest beyond the first day where we have no knowledge at all.

Basically, a penguin likely voted for Shifter to get lynched. I'd wager the 3rd, or later person to vote shifter is likely that penguin. That'd be Lord Cruton, Roundy, and SCG. Of the 3, Sir Cruton has most of my suspicions.

I do like Jane's train of thought that at least 1 penguin would have voted for Shifter, while the 2nd may or may not have voted for him or at all. If this is the case, the 3rd or 4th votes are the most likely suspects.

I love the fact I'm much more of a suspect in the game where I'm not a penguin, than in the one where I was.
You're the one with a free vote. Roundy and Bullwinkle are still top of my list, but DD's close and he gives us more information with respect to those he's trying to implicate.

Head on a block time, Jura had been glad he missed the first vote, that had been hurried and wrong, but something about Ducky was, well fishy, and fishy under these circumstances was bad.
Three other people were in the firing line and at least two would be innocent if he was right, the other penguin would cast at the last moment and save Ducky and kill another of us, this may flush the other out, but he doubted it, they would play smart to survive.

Post by: boydster on July 30, 2018, 04:00:31 PM
As the sun set on Day 2, the villagers cast their votes in true democratic fashion to decide which of them posed the greatest danger to the rest. That there would be a lynching seemed predestined. But who?

At first, it seemed they might reach a stalemate, as accusations seemed to be directed at almost anyone. Eventually, though, a consensus was reached. DuckDodgers would die this day. He walked nobly, his head held high, toward the gallows, barely flinching at the stench of burned flesh and marshmallows as he made his way past the fire pit that used to be Shifter and where Space Cowgirl was enjoying a s'more.

The rope was placed around Duck's neck. The knot, tightened. The ghost of Shifter's voice was heard faintly, as if still far away but approaching. "He-e-e-e-y Du-u-u-u-uck, f-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-c-k y-o-u-u-u-u-u-u, thi-i-s i-i-i-s my-y-y-y reve-e-e-e-e-enge!"

Out of seemingly no where, there is a whooshing sound that travels through the small crowd. No unlike the sound of a baseball, as it flies past your head when you are playing shortstop and miss the easy grab. Before anyone realizes what is happening, a barrage of blurs fly through, following the first mysterious projectile. What's going on?! Duck Dodgers falls to the ground, very much alive and breathing, his rope having been severed. As he hits the ground, something hits his arm. A quick glance and he can see it's a sharpened kangaroo finger bone, with some sort of green sludge coating it - poison? He barely has time to ponder why, when another one hits his leg. Then his chest - "Ow, it feels like fire." His eye - "Ahh! Shit! I can't see! IT BURNS SO BAD!" Finally, the last one pierced his testicle. His one remaining eye crossed, as he sprawled on the ground into a puddle of his own vomit. The burning intensified, but that wasn't the worst. The poison was starting to take hold as it attacked his central nervous system. Clearly it was a mind control serum, derived from Koala Chlamydia cultures that had been DNA-spliced with alligator hormones and Foster's Lager. Still huddled over on the ground, with only one arm that had not been pierced by the poison kangaroo finger bone blow-darts, he began pulling himself in the direction of the fire pit. Using only his good arm, he dragged his unwilling body inch by painful inch, closer to the dying embers, made worse because with each pull of his arm, the kangaroo bone embedded in his scrotum dragged on the ground and buried itself deeper into his punctured testis. His working eye could see what was happening, but his body was powerless to stop it. The serum was working itself through to every cell in his body, pulling him closer to the fire pit even as his eye was able to look on and his mind able to understand what was coming. Closer. Ever closer. He reaching out and placed one hand deep in the coal bed. "AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!" he screamed out, even as he used his burning hand to pull his body closer to the coals. His hair began to singe away. His eyebrows and lashes next. He felt his skin melting. 'Pull,' his body seemed to say again, and his arm complied. He pulled once more, with all his strength, his body landing directly on the coal bed and the fire rising up almost immediately to quiet his screams of pain. Space Cowgirl, meanwhile, prepares the next round of s'mores.

DuckDodgers, a normal villager, dies. And night falls. The villagers once again return to the tavern to collect themselves.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnddddddd I'm back!!!!

Revenge is sweet, but you dumbarses predicably murdered ANOTHER innocent. You guys aren't using logic and you aren't giving my death any meaning or learning any lessons from it.

Lets take a look at the first round voting. This is when the penguins are still noobs and a lot can be learned if you PAY ATTENTION!

Quote
Shifter votes to lynch Pezevenk
Roundy the Truthinessist votes to lynch Shifter
Ichimaru Gin :] votes to lynch Shifter
Crouton votes to lynch Shifter
Space Cowgirl votes to lynch Shifter
Jane votes to lynch Roundy the Truthinessist
Bullwinkle votes to lynch Shifter
Pezevenk votes to lynch Shifter
jroa votes to lynch Shifter

As soon as I voted for Pez (outlining my reasons for voting early so my early vote which was perfectly reasonable), ROUNDY immediately jumps on me and starts a pile on. Roundy had no reason to suspect me. HE WAS PROTECTING PEZ!!! ONLY A PENGUIN WOULD KNOW A FELLOW PENGUIN!! Nothing Roundy has said has added up to alleviate suspicion.

Now how do we know Pez is a penguin??
Take a look at THIS from the Greek himself

Goodbye Ducky! You will be missed.

Only a penguin would know the status of everyone else (in terms of being innocents) PEZ KNEW BEFORE DUCKY WAS KILLED THAT HE WAS INNOCENT. If he were a penguin, he would NOT be missed. At this stage, Duckys status was unknown to all but the penguins

NOW STOP KILLING INNOCENTS AND IF YOU WANT TO WIN THIS YOUR NEXT VOTES SHOULD BE FOR ROUNDY AND PEZ. YOUR 2 PENGUINS IN THIS GAME

Can you guys actually look at the clues and vote with reason or logic or will you keep randomly plucking names out of a hat and hope for the best?

Well, we could have chosen better, but this is second best.

I can answer #2. Shifter's ghost was seething with anger about his own demise, much like the real Shifter. Upon hearing that another villager was going to be lynched, he vowed to take that privilege away from those who had turned on him.

Duck was merely the focus, because of an unfortunate vote. Shifter rationalized it to himself, thinking "Well it's not like that guy stood up for me anyway, so he's just as responsible as the rest for my death."

Shifter's unrelenting, irrational rage caused him to fling mind-control-serum-tipped sharpened kangaroo fingerbone darts at the target he saw as the most vulnerable at the time - the one moments away from hanging, as he had.

It will most definitely work! 8) Friends, (who murdered me by the way), Do not mistake Roundy's 'self sacrifice' as some kind of noble gesture only an innocent human would make. It's a cunning strategy to make sure votes are steered away from him. If you cant bring yourself to vote for him, at least take down his accomplice, Pezevenk. With only 1 penguin in the game, their chance of winning if it comes down to a final 3 is dismal at best when they only control 1 vote

Well, aren't you in a pickle. If you were to be 'defended' and told were innocent, 2 things would happen. One, the defender would be next on the penguins kill list and 2, you would be straight after. So you know full well the truthterra isn't outing himself just to get you both killed.

Do we need any more proof this guy IS the penguin? He clearly doesn't care about the safety of the truthterra and is only looking out for his own hide. He's goading you all to believe he cant possibly be a penguin because of such and such dubious reasons. The more he talks, the more he sounds like a penguin.

At this point most people in the game have expressed little or no suspicion of me at all and one or two have already come to my defense; I still contend that you're the only innocent villager who really thinks I'm a penguin and you're dead so Na Nana Nana.

My worry is that if Jane isn't a penguin it will be easy to pull the two penguins in and make a voting bloc that will be hard to beat. Don't get me wrong I believe in my heart of hearts that Jane is a penguin but I've been wrong before.

Jura poked the flames from the two murdered innocents and tried to blot out the incessant bleating’s of Shifters ghost.

According to the recovered journals of the last massacre a similar thing had happened, a spirit in a whirling dervish of pointed accusations who could conveniently forget his mistakes and focus on the lucky strikes he made, it wouldn’t help, roll on sun-up.

It was scant compensation that had people gone with his no kill policy, DD wouldn’t now be warming marshmallows, as he, Jura, had helped to have him killed.
Why had DD acted so strangely? Panic probably, Jura was as guilty of that as anyone.

So, a night to get through, he wasn’t going for the bottle this time, face it sober, but between the jabbering ghost and fear of the penguins it promised to be a long one.

If you think it would work I'm all for it.

Hey, at least we can all agree on this!

But on a serious note:
Roundy immediately jumped on the 'lynch Shifter' train when Shifter was only acting the same way he had when he was an innocent. Roundy gets ridiculously defensive when accused, to the point of making grand statements and requests, but if you look at literally any non-BHS innocent they just don't act like that. A penguin on the other hand totally would because they have much more to lose, and they only 'really' get to play the game on certain nights. And on top of that he immediately started using Ichi's death to drum up sympathy.
And just to compare the evidence he has against me: I am focused on him, rather than playing the majority as I was in the last game, and I was a penguin in that last game.

I can't be the only one that finds this suspicious can I?
And I'm sticking by Bullwinkle too. In the absence of more convincing evidence, we have to remember who we suspected. Being misled was what won the last game. If people had remembered they were planning to lynch SCG rather than jumping trains to jroa, they'd have got a penguin. Your instinct works when you don't get distracted.

And for a third/fourth place suspect, Jura and Crouton started the Duckie train rolling. But I really can't let myself be distracted from Roundy.

Guilty as charged for DD, partly as he suddenly seemed panicky and weird, but also, he started saying it was me and that shit stops right here.
Crouton though, he’s an enigma.
As for the Jane-Roundy carousel, it did enter my mind that the two of them are just doing fine dancing round each other, but honestly, I could make an argument for any of you as you could me and my last hunch got someone killed.
I will point out (again) that if we had gone with the meat-shield for the chosen one option, that I still champion, Ducky would still be amongst us.

Hunches are all we've got. If we sit back and do nothing, we're just relying on the truthterra's guesswork which isn't going to be doing any better than our lynchings.

Honestly at this rate I'm well aware that if Roundy turns out to be innocent everyone's going to kill me, but I really can't ignore the suspicious behaviour.

The night persists. It feels almost endless. The werepenguins will murder someone this cycle; they always do, for it is in their nature. But who will they choose for their meal?

Title: Re: Werepenguins - The Perth Massacre
Post by: boydster on July 31, 2018, 04:00:21 PM
As the villagers awoke from another restless night, they began a roll call of sorts. Who was still alive? Had anyone not made it to breakfast? Roundy had made it into the dining room first, followed shortly by Space Cowgirl and deadsirius. Bullwinkle wandered in. Jura, Pez, and jroa, right on Moose's heels. A collective sigh of relief echoed in the room.

Wait though. Isn't someone missing? One, two, three... oh no! Who's missing? Wait a sec. Where's Crouton? Ah shit, he had spent the night dancing by the fire like a shaman on the most surreal spirit quest of his life.

The group headed out towards the fire pit. There is what appears be a trail of blood leading away from it. As they got closer to it though, it seemed strangely thick. Is this ketchup? Bullwinkle tasted it. Yup. Ketchup. And mixed in with it, small pieces of graham cracker. This was clearly the beginning of the Crouton trail. The villagers set out to follow the ketchup and s'more path. It led down the road briefly, and then turned sharply toward the river. They crossed the street. A piece of melted marshmallow. A chunk of chocolate. Into the grass alongside the water. More ketchup. And a telescope engraved with "Pebbles" on one side - Crouton had mentioned finding that telescope in Ichi's room the day before! But the trail seemed lost once they hit the water. That is, until they peered across the water and saw a glimmer of sunlight reflecting off something that looked like a giant lense. What was that? Had Crouton seen it? Is that why the telescope was out here?

Peering through the telescope, it was clear that the lense they were seeing was merely the focusing mechanism for a giant laser - one engineered by none other than the great Samuel Rowbotham, built but never tested, and meant to be employed in the greatest Flat Earth measurement ever conceived of, spanning the entire diameter of the Earth. A laser as powerful as this one would be capable of destruction unlike any weapon the world had ever seen, and so it had been kept secret by the High Zetetic Counsel in order to ensure world peace. Clearly, the Counsel had been toppled.

Peering directly back, away from where the laser was pointed, the group saw the thing they both feared and expected. Crouton, while dancing his heart out covered in condiments and melted sugar, had sustained a direct hit from the Rowbotham Beam. He must have been standing where they found the telescope, and then blasted backward nearly 100 feet until he hit finally hit a tree. There was a perfectly circular hole 8 inches wide that went straight through his chest, completely cauterized. His eyes were wide open, his mouth twisted in agony. The tree his body was pinned against had a matching hole that went entirely through its trunk. As they stood in front of Crouton, peering through the hole in his chest, they could see this hole went on into the distance indefinitely. Through trees, buildings, vehicles, farm animals... This hole would later become know as the Great Rowbotham Laser Penetration; a worldwide phenomenon, perhaps the most famous attraction on the entire plane. Had Sammy only been around to see this!

But alas. This moment of triumph for Rowbotham's experiment was also a moment of incredible tragedy for the villagers, as another one of their own had fallen. Granted, he smelled delicious - like a family campground, of sorts, an aroma disturbingly not unlike grilled hot dogs doused in ketchup, coupled with the sweet smell of s'mores, wafting all around him. But his delicious scent was not enough to outweigh the sadness of those who had come to know him as the dancing shaman weirdo guy who was also a little suspicious but mostly seemed alright.

Another villager has fallen. And dawn breaks.

You all know mine I expect. Roundy, for being on both the wrong votes, spearheading the charge in the former case, being unnaturally defensive when accused, and using Ichi's death for his own benefit.

I think she's trying to ensure you waste a lynching by targeting me, putting her and her unknown partner-in-crime one step closer to making you all look like fools.

My top suspect is Jane, obviously, for trying to subtly control the game in pretty much the same way she did last game, while simultaneously dragging my name through the mud for no reason at all (okay that last part is personal but how would you feel?  >:().

I hope we can talk it all out and I can convince you not to lynch me, or you can come to the conclusion that I'm innocent on your own. If you look at Jane's claims about my guilt you can see how flimsy they are. It's ridiculous to assert that I tried to benefit from Ichi's death, for example, and as I already explained as his primary accuser she is the one who really benefited from his death, because she thinks she can play you all for fools.

Yes I'm being defensive, I don't fucking care. This notion that defensiveness is a sign of guilt is pure bullshit Jane thinks you're all stupid enough to fall for too. Are you? Look back at the last game. People get defensive when they feel like their heads are on the chopping block, guilty or not.

Please believe me, I am not a werepenguin. But I strongly suspect Jane is.

Everyone name their top suspect, along with why they're a suspect. Emphasis on the why, we can't afford to be distracted from the reasons we are suspicious.

You all know mine I expect. Roundy, for being on both the wrong votes, spearheading the charge in the former case, being unnaturally defensive when accused, and using Ichi's death for his own benefit.

Does anyone have alternate suspects with reason, or reasons to disagree with either mine or anyone else's suspicions?
My top suspects are now Jane and Jroa. Jane's writings feel more and more like manipulation. It was suspicious at first how she talked about how nonsensical the murder of Ichi was. It felt like a penguin pretending to be confused about the motives and doing something she claims a penguin wouldn't do. There are other reasons too but I have to leave and I don't have time. Jroa... Well... Do I even have to explain it? He's almost acting too suspicious to the point that I have doubts a penguin would be dumb enough to do that. But maybe that's the whole point, idk. But I'm not at all sure about either of these people yet. I wouldn't vote.

And that? Does not make any sense.
Last game I pushed you to vote for the popular targets. That's how manipulating votes work, you look at who people are already considering and you push them towards the safe options. Sticking to my instinct and targetting the same person I suspected all along is what I'm doing because I know of that tactic, I'm not going to let myself be manipulated away from a suspect like happened last game at SCG. The fact I accused Ichi and he got killed is a bizarre tactic no matter who the penguin is because they just killed someone that might have been lynched. Killing someone in the night that might have died in the day only makes sense if the penguins have something specific to gain.
And right after Ichi died, you immediately used it to try and curry favour with me, someone that accused you. No one but you made you do that, and the penguins could hardly have planned for you to do that as a framejob. That's literally what happened.

Instead of just saying it's 'flimsy,' tell me I'm wrong. Tell me how I benefit from someone I accused being eaten rather than lynched. Tell me how anyone does, except for the one person that did try to get a win from it.

I did look at the last game. BHS aside, you have people who aren't happy to die, sure, but this "You accused me, so you must be a penguin even if it makes no sense!" shtick goes way beyond that.
You accuse me of manipulating votes when that's how you post? I'm giving my reasons, I'm giving logic. You're giving "She thinks you're stupid!" "She's playing you for fools!" Which one of us is manipulative again?

So whatever, if you do end up lynching me, once you've seen I'm innocent, please recognize how guilty it makes Jane look and lynch her next. At this point that's all I'm asking.

Also, side note, but the tactics Roundy's ascribing to me are nonsense. I'm targetting him because he's suspicious, and I'm not forgetting his suspicious behaviour. I'm intentionally driving it, well aware that if I'm wrong I'm due to get lynched after. That is a bad tactic to suppose. Speaking from experience, that isn't how penguins operate, penguins just encourage the suspicions you already have. They get you to lynch the wrong people, and get the excuse of not being the only one fooled. And that's what he's basing his suspicion of me on; the fact I accused him, despite the fact it would make no sense for someone who was a penguin to do so. Penguins don't need to single villagers out, innocents do.
That's why I'm sticking to Roundy. I know it's my conclusion, not one I was manipulated into having.

Sure, maybe I'm wrong, but to me even with just Ichi and his reaction alone, he easily seems the most suspicious candidate without even getting to Shifter. And then you get onto his acting like he's bound to be lynched when I'm the only particularly vocal person against him and...
My life is on the line if I'm wrong and I accept that, but the more time passes the more sure I am. I can't be the only one.

Either way, I still stand by this tack. look at how people have acted, don't go along with the majority just because they say to, be wary of people that do.

Well of course I don't want to be lynched, but if it'd make you happy, sure. If Roundy's not a penguin I won't put up any protest if you do want to kill me. If you think the only way anyone could suspect Roundy after all of this is if he was a penguin, I'll go to the rope willingly.

By this point I'm increasingly sure.

Instead of just saying it's 'flimsy,' tell me I'm wrong. Tell me how I benefit from someone I accused being eaten rather than lynched. Tell me how anyone does, except for the one person that did try to get a win from it.

Does anybody really not see how she's taking one minor incident (a 2 sentence comment on Ichi's death) and blowing it out of proportion like it's the most suspect thing I could have done? I just don't believe anybody would look at that and seriously think it's such a strong sign of guilt. It's part of the reason I so strongly suspect her.

Anyway Jane I did already explain how you benefit from Ichi's death, but since we're in a fresh voting round and it might help the other villagers see reason I will lay it all out again.

You were Ichi's accuser, and the night you accused him Ichi died. In the short term it seems to hurt the penguins since he becomes a potential lynching they might not have to worry about it. So why would the penguins (specifically Jane) do it?

Because it helps her in the long term. It's all about misdirection, something we found out Jane is capable of in the last game after BHS outed himself as the psychic and the penguins because she knew she could convince everyone else to lynch him.

Late in the game, when people are looking back through the thread for clues to who is and who isn't a penguin, they will see that one of the first people she accused was immediately eaten and she's hoping that it will convince them that she can't possibly be a penguin.

I mean I can't make it any clearer than that. Jane loves to point out that she knows how a penguin thinks, it's one of her subtle ways of manipulating the game, but you know what? I've played this game as a wolf successfully too so I know how they think too. And trust me, one thing a successful wolf or penguin or whatever has to keep in mind from the beginning is the long game. You need to set up your innocence early on, and to me the whole Ichi thing is such a blatant attempt on Jane's part to do just that I'm surprised no one else seems to see it.

Ichi was one of multiple points, but what it is, is the strongest single bit of evidence against anyone. And frankly you overtly using Ichi's death as soon as it happened to try and get on my good side is a hell of a stronger connection than what you're saying.

That's... not how anything works. The reason the BHS misdirection worked was because people were suspicious. You'll also notice that at no point in the other game did we ever kill someone that was considered a suspect because there's no need to. That's independent of who accused him. As far as misdirection goes it's dumb because your link is absurdly tenuous. And speaking from experience in the last game, Duck explicitly suspected me the night before he got killed... and no one noticed, despite the fact I had a whole plan to twist it into looking like a framejob. With that in mind, you expect my master plan to be hoping someone reads several pages of threads starting at the beginning, spots the one post where I considered Ichi (besides you, it should be said, and yet you seem to be safe), and draws a tenuous link?

I'd also point out that what you call a 'blatant attempt' that 'you're surprised nobody else can see' was something that to begin with you used to tell me you thought I was innocent. To me that seems trying to get on the good side of your accuser, then twisting it around as soon as that failed.

Jane/Roundy:  increasingly likely that at least one of them is a penguin

SCG:  Like I said, possibly my favorite choice.  The remorseless doesn't sit well with me

Bullwinkle:  we better start paying attention to him.  Someone this quiet should have been an early penguin target...the mere fact he's still alive is highly suspicious.

Pezevenk:  seems to be playing it cool.  On the radar, especially if penguins don't get him.

Jura Glenlivet:  has gone dark it seems...strange, but also possible psychic.  If however the psychic dies and it's not him...bingo

Jroa:  wild card.  I have no damn idea

In short, I favor Cowgirl, Bullwinkle, and/or Jane and/or Roundy.

Say it with me now: it does not make sense for a penguin to accuse a random person out of the blue. A penguin would want to steer the existing majorities, not draw attention to themselves and put their heads on the chopping block if they're wrong.

So Jane, that could apply to DS, Jroa (sometimes) and Pez the holiday planner, you and SCG sound pretty much the same as last time and you were both evil incarnate, and there is no statistical reason that you both didn't land the same cards, some where there is also a psychic I do not want their blood on my hands. I may save my vote and try to tie it if it's close, although then I won't be any the wiser tomorrow.

Do I have to post the tickets or something? Send you a postcard? What do you want to stop suspecting me? What would a penguin even gain by saying they won't be around much?

So defensive! By Jane's logic you are definitely a penguin, come clean villain!
Uh, no, he's responding naturally, not defaulting to "You accused me, you must be a penguin!"
Say it with me now: it does not make sense for a penguin to accuse a random person out of the blue. A penguin would want to steer the existing majorities, not draw attention to themselves and put their heads on the chopping block if they're wrong. A penguin would want to distract attention from themselves.

Bully, could be (see, no idea), he's quiet but he is always a one liner poster.
That's what makes me wary of him. It's a neat way to not draw attention for absence while also not arousing suspicion by presence.

Jane, you're an ignorant slut.
That's... Not very nice  :-\

But I don't think you are that! Roundy have a s'more.
To be fair, last time SCG and I were also trying to blend in so we'd act more or less the same as we would anyway. The biggest change is that I'm not voting for the innocent every day, unlike some others I could name.
And yep, though Pez, jroa and DS do offer more in the way of opinions.
But on the truthterra, if we don't lynch a penguin today, there are six of us left. Tomorrow will be our last chance, so assuming they survive we need them to out themselves. We're screwed either way. So long as we don't lynch someone the truthterra's verified, or the truthterra themselves, we have a decent chance, and the odds of that are only slightly better than the odds of getting a penguin so...

Jura watched the others through the flames, the others watched each other, and Jura, through the flames, Roundy was clenching his fists as he sneaked a look at Jane, Jane was casting glances at Bully, Bully was trying without success to spot one eye with the other, inadvertently making himself look shifty, Pez was trying to concentrate on a travel brochure while taking concealed peeks at SCG, she smiled and offered him a s'more, where the fuck did this girl find her ingredients and why was none of it edible, Deadsirius was, jroa was too but in a more jroa kind of way, Jura watched the others through the flames.

You are quite correct. I told you, this narrator is very suspicious.

I updated the official log. One vote for Roundy, one for Jane. As of now it's a stalemate, and no one is getting lynched.

Ok, so if there are no further votes then I will be lynched, you will see that I am innocent, and it will be clear that my accusations aren't sneaky attempts by a penguin to manipulate you guys. It's not ideal of course but it's better than nothing.

Post by: boydster on August 01, 2018, 04:00:01 PM
With Shifter, Crouton, Ichi, and Duck (supposedly) dead, the presumed Roundy The Truthinessist declared this The Darkest Timeline. He proposed to the remaining villagers that they become the Werepenguin Destructors and to find a way to the "Prime Timeline" that began in Ben Lawers and spawned this terrible reality they were now stuck in. Once there, they would kill their counterparts and take over their lives. He handed them all black beards made out of felt to symbolize their team spirit, but only Bullwinkle agreed to wear it.

BUT. Roundy The Truthinessist had previously appeared to his duplicate, Roundy2.0, when he had been separated from the TFES.org site and was forced to re-enroll in the the Flat Earth Society's ranks once more. Desperate to cope with the very recent loss of his best friend DuckDodgers, Roundy The Truthinessist turned to his alter-ego Roundy2.0 for help, agreeing to undergo a goatee transplant with him. Unfortunately, Roundy2.0 persuades Roundy The Truthinessist into re-entering TFES.org, leaving only Roundy2.0 (posing as Roundy The Truthinessist) to convince the villagers of his innocence.

There was one problem. Roundy2.0 was not committed to his character impersonation in the least. Space Cowgirl tried to stick s'mores to his body, and he peeled them off as fast as she could apply them. Bullwinkle tried to joke with him about the giant laser hole that spanned the entire plane, only to have Evil Roundy (Roundy2.0's pet name for himself) flip him off and, awkwardly, moon him while only standing inches away. Even Shifter's ghost attempted to lighten the mood, promising not to fling mind-serum-tipped kangaroo finger bones at Roundy. And Evil Roundy just stared at him, blankly.

So, the time had come. Evil Roundy, having utterly failed at creating a sufficient number of allies within the Villager camp, was marched to the rope from which he would hang, with those around him thinking he was Roundy The Truthinessist the entire time. Sure, they wondered what had become of him, when he had turned so cold, why he was the way that he suddenly was. But that didn't matter. He would hang, and the questions would be gone.

Evil Roundy stood in front of his accusers, rope tightened around his neck, and said to them: "AAAAH-HAHAHAHAHA I'M EVIL ROUNDY, YOU MOFOS!"

The platform below his feet fell. His body dropped and went limp. Roundy2.0, imposter for Roundy The Truthinessist, was dead. And with Evil Roundy's death, The True Roundy The Truthinessist found himself in an interdimensional limbo. Not able to physically join his companions by day, but able to speak with them through the ethereal plane by night.

Roundy The Truthiness, a normal villager, walked no more among the plane of the living.

You want to bag a penguin though, you need to look at jroa. He waits with his vote and votes with a majority only AFTER their fate is generally assured.

You did good, kid, you did good, I think. You may be dead, but in your death the truth will be shown. That truth, that Jane is unequivocally the most obvious choice to lynch next, means that in my death, at least some of my compatriots may live.

They just have to do the right thing, the obviously right thing, I think.  As long as they can do that my death will have meaning, and we can finally be a step closer to beating these ignorant, slutty monsters once and for all.

Oh yes. I may be dead, but all is not lost yet.

And look up the difference between hunch and guess, as I’m pretty sure the definition of the former usually mentions gut instinct and currently you no longer possess any, they too having joined SCG’s flaming pit to support the ever-shrinking population in their addiction to sugary snacks.

Ffs please don't let Werepenguin Jane win again. That would be so stupid.

And my hunch is that Jura is her partner.

Don’t let your personal animosity cloud your life Roundy, you will end up like Shifter.
And look up the difference between hunch and guess, as I’m pretty sure the definition of the former usually mentions gut instinct and currently you no longer possess any, they too having joined SCG’s flaming pit to support the ever-shrinking population in their addiction to sugary snacks.

As for me being a penguin, well that shit just underlines your inability to discern between the above, and don’t take that as an insult, as none of us here is on the short list to play Sherlock Holmes.

This guy speaks the truth. Don't end up like me

However I was right the first time. Pez is a penguin. Both in the word filtered sense and actual sense.

A toast to Roundy--sorry we're apparently terrible at this.  I saw the way the winds was blowing last night, and I abstained because frankly, I had no better ideas.  We may as well be drawing names from a hat at this point.

So what does the math day again?  I mean at what point are we statistically done for?

I felt pretty good about my first vote. Then Roundy screwed it up and turned everyone against their exorcist. I still think Pez was the guy to lynch. Not sure what made Roundy protect him but here we are... A mass off innocent villagers dead and no exorcist to protect anyone.Thanks Roundy.

The banshee screeching of Shifter had sunk to acceptable levels of grumbling about Pez, as expected. The survivors all looked pensively at the growing collection of ghosts (Metabolically challenged Crouton), gathered together casting resentful looks at the living. A spectral testament to the dire skills of deduction possessed by the remaining humans and the cunningness or blind luck of the were’s, everyone was putting on weight and losing teeth, due to the diet.

Jura felt some comfort in the thought his corpse would probably induce diabetes in any penguin that killed him, but it was thin nourishment.

Someone else would die soon by penguin, the remaining must face the dawn knowing this day could be their last and the were-penguins would march on. Jura had committed his recollections to a journal in the hope that a sharper mind than his could fathom the psychology of these creatures and turn the tide in humanities favour, should all here perish.

The thing was he had grudging fondness for most of the group, both phantom and alive, tempered by the realisation that in the next day or so, one or more of them would undoubtedly betray that affection and execute him. Hey-ho who wants to live forever.

I eye the horizon, awaiting sunrise with the knowledge that one of us will not survive. I nod as Jura passes, preparing their stick, and quickly hide as SCG comes past, offering her corpse-cooked s'mores.
I don't know where she keeps getting the ingredients, and I'm not sure I want to.

And I watch Bullwinkle still. Are those feathers peeking up from under his shirt, or is it just my imagination?
I look down sharply as he turns, hoping he didn't catch me.

Dawn is coming, and tomorrow might be our last day.

Oh it's not so bad really.  Ghost s'mores.  Ghost ketchup.  No need to open and close doors though I don't understand why I don't fall straight through the ground.  No credit though.  Someday a ghost will qualify for a boat loan.

Two more hours of stillness.  Then a single ray of sunrise and a few moments of horror.  But take heart, you see a corpse while I meet a new friend.

Stand tall my brothers and sisters from another life.  You may still win this one.  But if not, there are plenty of s'mores for all.

Dawn will soon approach and as the first rays of sun will peek over the horizon, this apparition decides to just observe instead of wail. He notices as SCG toasts yet another s'more but as she does she is not simply holding the s'more to the heat of the flame from my body which never seems to stop burning, but she singes it on my body. The blood now black like the depths of hell. She seems so engrossed in this I cant see her taking a break, even for a moment to kill. Although it is indeed a nasty fetish. Jane appears to be pondering what could be her last moments. There is nothing untoward about her behaviour. She seems genuinely concerned she may not see the sunrise. At least then, she can be with me. This thought seems to console her and make her more accepting of what could be a horrible, slow, painful and gruesome death. Jura has always looked odd and out of place, almost as if he were from a parallel fora. He does not strike me as a murderer though.

What of jroa? He has offered himself to be hanged. Guilty conscious maybe? Or maybe drunk and indifferent. He does not seem to be bothered whether he lives or dies but he does seem bothered by other peoples death. Especially those he helped out with. These killings have been done with a fine art. jroa is constantly drinking down his sorrows, there is no way he could have killed the others so masterfully

Bullwinkle seems agitated. SCG keeps trying to use his antennae to hold her s'mores except sometimes they aren't just s'mores. Because she prods the s'more deep into the burning, necrotised bodies, the s'more is no more and what comes out is the flesh of the dead instead. Bullwinkle seems genuinely disgusted at the sight and smell of blood

Which brings us to deadsirius and Pez. Everyone else I can get a vibe on but these 2 have nothing. No emotion. No concern. They seem to stick together and convene in private but as a mere apparition I can see without being seen. Pez looks at deadsirius and nods. As he does, a faint but high pitch squawk can be heard. His eyes, piercing in its gaze, flashes ever so quickly. Is Pez not human? Could he be.... a Penguin?

Deadsirius walks off, alone, leaving Pez, alone. Something has been plotted. A murder? Someone will die this night. Pez and deadsirius do not seem concerned.

I cant tell the others what I have learned. Due to my incessant wailing of before in a hate induced rage for revenge against Roundy, an innocent human who was simply a fool, no one will take me seriously. This is my punishment. I know who the penguins are, but I can't say anything. I can only watch as someone else is murdered and another villager is hanged. I just hope the villagers don't make yet another mistake. They don't have much time left

The villagers are devastated that they killed another innocent villager. However, now he's dead, and there is no reason to let him go to waste. They quickly convert his body into s'mores. Space Cowgirl has an idea:

"I'm gonna take some s'mores to John Davis, who lives across the woods. He is sick, and couldn't play in the game attend the lynching."
"Great idea", the others say, "but go straight to his house and don't waste time in the woods. The woods are treacherous and full of penguins!"

SCG promptly fills up a basket with s'mores and starts walking to JD's house. However, she is distracted by some shrooms she sees growing in the woods and stops to pick them up. That's when I approach her, right before I transition, struggling to hold my human form for just a while longer.

"What are y-COA! *mouth turns to beak momentarily* excuse me- doing here little Cowgirl?"
"Just on my way to see John Davis, who lives across the woods, and take these s'mores to him. I just stopped to pick up some mushrooms, to... uh... Put them on a pizza, they're regular mushrooms, nothing to see here. I'm gonna give some to JD too. Are you sure you're alright?"
"Yeah it's jus-COA! it's just indigestion. Do you want me to take these s'mores to him so you can pick the mushrooms at your own pace?"
"Oh, sure, thanks!"

Pebbles starts walking to JD's house, knocks on his door, now completely in his penguin form. John opens the door, and before he has time to react, Pebbles devours him whole, then lies on John's bed and starts eating the s'mores as a dessert.

Meanwhile, SCG realizes she has nowhere to put the shrooms since Pebbles had taken her basket, so she just eats them all. But then she decides she wants to see John Davis anyway. By the time she gets there though, she's high as a kite.

Pebbles had left the door open, so Space Cowgirl just walks straight into the house. She finds me Pebbles bed, and Pebbles quickly realizes she's too high to suspect anything.

"Hey JD... I came to... Uh... Why is your back so dark suddenly?"
"I was sunbathing."
"And why is your belly so white ?"
"I was lying on it while sunbathing."
"Oh haha, I would have thought you were a penguin, it's just the shrooms I guess!"
"Haha, yeah, me a penguin, crazy!"
"By the way, why do you have a beak?"
"TO PECK OUT YOUR INSIDES BETTER!!!"

Before she has time to react, Pebbles has devoured her inside out, along with all the psilocybin in her system. Pebbles McWaddlebottom is left having an awesome trip. Space Cowgirl (and John Davis, but he's not in the game) are no more.

Bullwinkle - most likely penguin. Been keeping to himself a lot.
Jura - I understand the psychic vibe they're giving off, but equally it could be a penguin vibe. I'm ambivalent.
jroa - is jroa.
DS - Wasn't on my radar until last night, but his posts remind me of the ones I made to manipulate people, so... hopefully it's not another Roundy.
Pez - from the last game we know he just naturally looks guilty so eh.
Roundy's ghost - I WILL DIE ON THIS HILL

And SCG's death probably meant nothing like the others, just a distraction, but I'll check tomorrow.

I am curious to see how moose will vote.  Will he vote Jane, in which case we end with a tie?  Will he not vote or will he vote with the majority here?  He knows he is next.  Maybe he just rage quit, or maybe he is waiting till the end to keep idiots like me in suspense?

Vote for me, and we're screwed.  Vote for Jane, we're screwed.  Vote for anyone else, screwed.  Guess the results are the same...it's just all on Bullwinkle's conscience now.  Just because the penguins are going to win now doesn't mean you can't at least be on the right side of history.  The record can still show that you tried to do the right thing, Moose.  No pressure or anything.

Actually a tie wouldn't mean death; there'd still be five of us by tomorrow meaning it's still possible to get a majority.

But you were my second choice after Bullwinkle so, eh, I can live with it. You started being suspicious last night.

The question is, will moose force a tie to save his compatriot, or will he turn on you in the hope to distract us?

You may wriggle like a fish on a line DS, (a fish that being a penguin you would steal, thus depriving a fisherman of his catch, and therefore, both him and his family of food and/or income), but the Moose will do his duty to humankind, for his spirit is noble, and then others will turn to him and see him for the hero and never again think to string him from a tree, this I prophecies (is that a word?).

Post by: deadsirius on August 03, 2018, 08:00:27 AM
I didn't start acting suspicious...I started being suspected.  It's an important difference...Like how when you're driving and a cop seems to be following you--you feel like you're doing something wrong even while knowing you're not.

Anyway, Jane corrected my game calculus here, so it turns out Bullwinkle's vote matters more than I thought.  I would say think about how Jane and Jura have suddenly fixated on me with no reason at all.  Your gut was telling you it's Jane--trust in that.

And if this goes south and I do end up dead tonight...you all better think quick about why Jura suddenly started trying to focus attention away from himself right when things started to get tight.  There is more going on here than we know.

No, we suspect you because:

I'm probably 50/50...wouldn't rule him out.  My gut is leaning away from more obvious choices though; I feel like we're looking at a dark horse candidate here.
You're a) now contradicting yourself by saying we shouldn't go for a dark horse candidate, but also b) tried to distract attention the exact same way I did last game, so presumably your partner is someone we suspected back then. Someone with antlers methinks.

At this rate it's going to turn out SCG is a penguin again and the s'mores are poisoned.

I am growing more convinced of this.
And literally using the tactic Roundy had just described to try and distract suspicion.

For starters. You also seem much more anticipatory than a villager who's awaiting death and doesn't know how to stop it; more like, shall we say, someone that had hoped to win today.

Alright.  As I see it, if moose dose nothing, DS gets lynched.  If he is innocent, then we have lost, as a villager will be killed tonight and then it will be 2:2.  If he votes for Jane, to make a tie, he looks very guilty, and tomorrow, it will be 3:2 until the penguins kill.  If he votes with the majority, and DS is guilty, then that buys us a few days to figure out who the other is.  Vote, moose!

DeadSirius gazed, incredulous, upon the other survivors.  He was suddenly sharply aware of how alone he was.  Only some eldritch mistake of creation could revel in the wanton cruelty displayed by the penguins in the recent days, and here stood, actually accused of being responsible!  The thought of his compatriots believing this sickened him even more than the deaths had.

He struggled to piece together the events of the past few days, but there were gaps. 
Such as the night Crutonius had been on the wrong end of the terrifying Rowbotham Beam. 
He had mourned Cruton's passing in his own way, but even still he had felt a perverse
admiration for the perfect precision of the Rowbotham technology.  No, that wasn't quite
right.  He didn't just admire the beam; it was almost more like he was...proud...of it?  But why should he feel any pride for--

Don't everyone act too hastily... This only has us missing any new salient information that comes up.

Actually I kind of like this idea of Jane and Roundy pulling off some kind of long con here.  It essentially sacrifices one in order to make the other bulletproof...crazy, but intriguing.

Is everyone convinced that at least one of them is guilty?

--he lost his train of thought.  Or rather, his train of thought was derailed, almost like he had been interrupted.  But no one had spoken, no one but him.  Only it wasn't quite him anymore...at first he thought it was just the shock of the surely insane accusation.  But somehow he knew there was more than that.  Something different inside him.  He stared into the shattered mirror behind the bar, but the eyes that gazed back were not his own, and the cold smile slowly spreading across his face belonged to another.

"Who are you?" he whispered to his reflection..."WHAT are you?"

I dunno, if I have to pick... First I'd say having Cowgirl always keep eating S'mores so glibly off the bodies has made me a little suspicious.


That's just a feeling, but that's what I've got.


The villagers couldn't be correct...could they?  No matter--the die has been cast.  If he is to die tonight, it will be better than living with even the possibility that he could be sharing a body with a monster.



I guess I agree.  I'm not sure we're taking all the suspects as seriously as everyone shouldLike you never could have made enemies right away like Roundy and Jane have without sticking your neck out a little, but...hiding in plain site can be a good strategy. 


The phantoms are toasting s'mores, and deadsirius awaits his fate.

deadsirius stood accused, his mind starting to put together pieces that he had previously not connected. Careful reflection had already revealed to him what the villagers had suspected on this day. His true identity was none other than Fishcakes von Peckington.

OH! The horror he felt, as he relived flipping the switch on the Great Rowbotham Laser Penetrator. The satisfying click that closed the circuit, the brief but noticeable rumble, followed by the powerful photon beam of utter destruction.

But his horror, in this life, was to be short-lived.

Jura grabbed the rope and Jane grabbed deadsirius. The villagers marched together to the gallows, past the dying embers of their other fallen friends. deadsirius proudly accepted his fate and stood tall as they rope was placed around his neck.

A pull of a level, a drop of a plank, deadsirius' body fell straight down. The breaking of his neck was audible to all that were present. As he hung there, his body slowly began transforming. His hands became flippers. His nose grew into a beak. His eyebrows grew long and bright yellow.

The ghost of Shifter, the village exorcist, approached. He whispered quietly as he hovered around the creature that used to be deadsirius. With a final wave of his hand, Fishcakes von Peckington faded away, seemingly into mist.

An empty rope was left, swaying in the breeze, as the villagers looked on astonished at what had just transpired. Yes, Fishcakes was finally dead. And while they were not going to be able to give their friend, deadsirius, the cremation he so rightly deserved and their s'more cravings desired, they felt at peace knowing that deadsirius had been released from this horrible fate that had been thrust upon him.

Night falls. Pebbles is still watching. Truthterra, can you help guide your fellow villagers to victory?

The hanging of Deadsirius was harder on the soul than he could have imagined, there was the feeling that the man was not the beast, in the sense that his humanity while in control was as appalled of his monsters actions as any here and Jura had liked the man.

To have an enemy one respected was as odd as having an ally that nettled, Shifters ghost blithely forgetting his recommendation to kill the guiltless Roundy was trumpeting for the death of Pez' (where was an exorcist when you needed one), well there were other people to consider and all concerned were adamant that the next lynching would be the last. Either way the reprehensible creature would claim credit.

Pez, is not a worthless suspicion. He is spot on your penguin. The only motive I had in the first round voting was to bag a penguin. So I made the choice based on the few things Pez had said. I was not after lynching an innocent. I wanted to win this

Given my unique role, whether Roundy was/wasn't didn't matter. He was guilty of an innocent death, the same way the penguins are. What reason did Roundy have to suspect me? No good/valid reason apart from being a douche. Not good enough.

Maybe we should try lynching from the first day this time. Last time we waited and it didn't work out that well.

Lynching now is pot luck if you score a penguin. Last time, it didn't work because you voted to kill our scientist. Just try not to f#@k it up this time and we should win it
We've been over this. The scientist did a shit job. And yes, it's unlikely that a penguin will be lynched. But do you really want to wait until the penguins have killed everyone to decide who the penguin is?

As day broke and the villagers gathered to evaluate their situation, they immediately noticed that there was a 7-foot tall antlered beast missing. Where had he been staying? "In the motel next door, yo-o-o-o-o-o-o-u f-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-ck sti-i-i-i-i-i-i-cks!" wooed the ghost of Shifter, fading away into the distance.

Yes, that's right! He had been staying next door. Kind of odd, sure, but he seemed to like his privacy. Sure, it had drawn some attention from some of the other villagers, but he said he felt some comfort in his solitude. They rest of the crew headed out the door and over to the motel. Things got weird fast once they arrived, though. The main entrance had several chicken feet hanging from the top. Crossing the threshold, they were greeted with a collection of voodoo dolls sitting on a countertop. Weird - there was one for each of them. And right next to them, an iron cauldron with a good bed of ashes . Could these ashes be from the voodoo dolls of the fallen villagers?

The pressed on further. Which room had he taken? The very first one down the main hall, that's right. The knock. No answer. Knock again. "Moose, hey bud, you OK?"

Silence.

A BANG! A puff of smoke. The door falls inwards. Was that a bomb? No, there was no trace of anything having exploded, no smell of gunpowder. What kind of magic was this? Stepping into the room, the villagers saw the thing they hoped not to see. A stark naked moose, laying on the floor. Even worse, had been de-antlered. What kind of sick fuck would do this?

Next to his body, there was a notebook. Whaaa? The group huddles around as the notebook is opened. There appeared to be detailed notes about some of the villagers in here.

Code: [Select]
Ichi. Villager.
   *Fuck, they got him before I even had a chance. Same night!
Crouton. Villager.
   *MOTHERFUCKER ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS THEY DID IT AGAIN???
Fishcakes gave himself away, deadsirius all along. WOW.

OK game time. Pebbles. I'm going to meditate on this one tonight

His notes stopped then and there. This was bad. This was very bad. The villagers realized their oracle, the famed TruthTerra, had been murdered in the night by none other than Pebbles McWaddlebottom.

Bullwinkle, the village oracle known as TruthTerra, was dead.

Dawn comes again. What will become of the town of Perth?

Wait, there have been four nights but only two names there. Which means either Bullwinkle sucks as the psychic, or he knows more than we found out. And those seem to be only the first two nights, so it's wholly possible that he actually found the other penguin, and that it's just not being revealed because it'd end the game.
Someone go back and check who Bullwinkle suspected, I'm going to sleep.

I have returned. And in time to witness what should have been this groups first vote if they weren't so stupid.

Yes, the sum total of all Pez's posts by the time you voted were truly damning enough to merit killing him back then, and not the exact same as when he was innocent and you still wanted him dead.

Maybe we should try lynching from the first day this time. Last time we waited and it didn't work out that well.

Lynching now is pot luck if you score a penguin. Last time, it didn't work because you voted to kill our scientist. Just try not to f#@k it up this time and we should win it
We've been over this. The scientist did a shit job. And yes, it's unlikely that a penguin will be lynched. But do you really want to wait until the penguins have killed everyone to decide who the penguin is?

OK. So who do we murder based on the zero information we have?
Idk. We can start by you  ;)

It's going to turn out that Pez actually is a penguin this time isn't it?

If people want to vote today, wait until nearer the time, we will at least have some information from how people are behaving.
Weren't those your ideas while you were a penguin?  ???

Post by: boydster on August 05, 2018, 07:17:05 PM
This day was one that would be looked back upon as the first day of a new world. For better or worse, the villagers were forced to pick one more suspected Werepenguin to lynch. Should they fail, one of their own would die, and the Werepenguin Pebbles would claim another victim the following night. The game would be over, and the Werepenguins would have laid waste to yet another fine Scottish town. However, if the villagers should choose correctly, they would stop this senseless killing here and now.

They began to vote. Slowly, at first, then picking up their pace as time drew near to a close. It was decided in a 3-1 split. Pezevenk would hang.

The villagers, exhausted from several restless nights and deep emotional scars, wasted no time. Jura grabbed Pezevenk by the hair and pulled him to the gallows while Jane and jroa chanted the chorus to Queen's "We Will Rock You," replacing the work "rock" with "hang." Pez was powerless to resist the mob, though that didn't stop him from trying. He dug his feet into the ground and left a trail of exposed dirt in the grass. He grasped at the grass with his hands, tearing clump after clump.

Jura realized he wasn't going to be able to get a rope around Pezevenk's neck, even with the help of everyone else. Quickly considering all of the options, and considering the rumbling in his own belly, he came to a decision. Pezevenk would be tossed on top of the body pit, that they may feast on s'mores once more while they cross their fingers in hope that fate smiles upon them and it is Pebbles that burns.

Pezevenk is led by his hair to the fire pit, dragging his feet and hands the entire way. jroa grabs his feet, while Jura maintains a tight grasp on his hair. They left him and start swinging - "One, two, three!" they say in unison, and on the third count, they release Pezevenk onto the pile of embers. His body erupts in flames. The flames change colors, from an orange-yellow to a blue-green, almost like the Northern Lights. Or, perhaps the Southern Lights, they would come to see. Because suddenly, Pezevenk's skin was no longer his own. He had blackened, yes, but he had also whitened on his belly. There were feathers mixed in with the ashes floating in the air. He let out one loud final "COAAAA!" and fell silent.

The three remaining villagers looked at each other, stunned. This was it. This was really it. They had rid the town of Perth of the last of the Werepenguins. Pebbles McWaddlebottom was s'more fuel.

With that, they all pulled up a seat around the fire and roasted a victory s'more.


Well done, villagers. You have won this round, and saved the town of Perth from certain doom.

On the next game, are people still interested? I call dibs on narrating!  :P

Also, do people want to see any changes?
The new roles I've seen proposed and work with how many players we seem to get are the village idiot (is told they're the psychic, they're not, the info they get is decided randomly), the doctor (like the exorcist, only with a 100% chance to save), and a variant where one person has a 50% chance to survive being killed by lynching or by penguin.

Acts to counterbalance a few of the one-sided tricks and tactics.

Definitely in. The Exorcist role was based on the Faith Healer. I also think the vigilante would be a very fitting role to include for this group.

Vigilante
The vigilante is on the villager team, and has the ability to kill one person at night if she so chooses. She is thus free to act on her own beliefs about who the werewolves are.

The vigilante is "less powerful" than the wolves. If there is only one wolf left, and one vigilante, and the wolf chooses to kill the vigilante, then the vigilante's kill does not take effect. (She is killed before she has a chance to do her own killing.)

How about enhancing the roleplay elements? So you can PM, but you have to say "I go over and talk to [someone]," or "I just PMed [so-and=so]," depending on how you want to act. No need to reveal what's being said, but it does let people know who might be conspiring, and makes sense by the in-universe rules.

My one worry about roles like the vigilante is that the body count will go up much faster. As it is there's only a few days of drawing conclusions. I like some of the idea behind it, but that's one that might depend on how many sign-ups we get.

Yep & yep.

I think there must be some way that the villagers can mimic scuttling off into corners and other rooms to discuss their fears and theorise about each other, form alliances and so forth, natural and not without its dangers as the were’s can use it to their advantage.

I think the PM’ing is self-limiting anyway, a psychic can tell a villager he is the psychic and he has checked them out as okay, but it takes a leap of faith for them to believe it, as the Were would know that too.

I like Juras style of role playing a character as opposed to being yourself. Adds more mystery/intrigue

The werepenguins having a chance to write a death scene is a nice touch.

deadsirius dropping hints in his posting was cool. They are unlikely to be deciphered in game but seeing them after the fact was awesome

As villagers we couldn't be certain of 'how many penguins there are'. If the game has enough players, I'd like to have the amount of penguins in play to be unknown. It makes it harder to trust because you cant rely on a process of elimination. Also the only way to know we got 'em all is if we all survive a night. This could mean despite bagging the last one we still hang an innocent villager lol

I'm not sure what deadsirius did that gave him away though. I was away, I came back and suddenly he's dead.

Jane said she was voting me more or less at random, and jroa supposedly chose me by coin flip.  If this is true I could very well have survived that night...

The only thing random was which of you died first.
