I'm guessing Jura's hint to the excorcist to protect Crouton was a little too hintey, although reading back he/she could have protected Pez, looks like the crouton clan just doesn't breed survivors, speak to us in the night oh crunchy one.

Jura's journal.
The gore has been cleaned up, mostly by the young boy Shifter, seems a decent if slightly deranged fanboy of the mighty snake-oil salesman they have a statue of.

Whoreson is seething that we haven't strung anyone up from the rafters, it worked last time, just,so he sees no reason to change tack, but what really won was teamwork.

Pez will have his work cut out but Crouton seems to have his back at the moment, I'm sure the penguins will try to break that pact tonight, I hope the exorcist has his move sorted.

The member of the Deadsirius clan that is here talks a lot of sense, apart from continually mistaking me for Inti', but then again so did his relative and we know what he was.

Crouton wants to parley, I hope I'm not showing too much leg and this isn't going to get embarrassing.

Well the axes have disappeared, I know where one is, but nobody died yet.

Long night ahead, Jane is there a bar here with some decent malts? And am I right that a weenie is a hotdog named after a penis? I don't think I'll ever understand Americans.

Whoreson was getting very agitated, Pez really didn’t understand the American’s sense of individuality and the dictatorial tone he was using on the old feller was not going down well, if somebody didn’t rush in with a counter-vote for Pez at the last minute the plan would collapse, either way he’d better hope he’s the chosen one.

Now Inti has weighed in, knew I shouldn’t have mentioned Cyprus.

Jura was off line for the next three hours, Crouton have your heavies ready for a last minute charge, Pez, good luck.

So, let me get this straight, your master plan is to kill people who claim to be an oracle because statistically, eventually, we will get a penguin?  That is the dumbest plan I have ever heard of.

Good job we didn’t call the oracle, Spartacus, would have been a bloodbath!

Jura wished Pez all the luck in the world with his plan, but she doubted it would last the night, never mind four.

She’d had a similar disagreement with Jane over a comparable plan at Perth, there had been bad blood for a while, but she wished Jane were here now, her survival instincts were sorely missed.

The Pez – Egghead split could turn nasty, everyone’s a hero in their own story, which makes gainsayers the enemy. Jane had turned out to be an ally, yet Jura had almost railed against her as a penguin for her opposition.

Boydster was an easy target too, vocal, abrasive, wrong, and this with the garlic, a primitive spell or truly trying to mask the smell of corruption?

The pizza’s needed some work, there was one left of the few that had been cooked, a misshaped thing that looked like Cyprus, both Pez & Inti/Wise were eying it so Jura cut it in half and gave them both a piece, seemed fair.

Wait a sec. WTF Jura weren't you a guy in the last round? That was just a couple days ago. Normally, guys don't shave, cut their hair, or change their underwear when they are on a winning streak. Yet you. You have now changed genders. This does not sit well with me.

Check your privileges you murder obsessed, French smelling egg head. More went on in South Georgia than I was willing to admit, turns out I was spliced with Clown-fish genes, the combination of being one of the last alive and the weight gain from a sugary diet caused a switch, it’s a NASA deep cover escape mechanism that has embarrassing social side effects and a gentleman wouldn’t have commented.

I think we have to lynch on day one. Here's why. The ratio of penguins to villagers grows over time, meaning the penguins have greater influence over the vote later in the game. Yes, it's random, but history seems to hint it's mostly low-info voting anyway and it's worse-than-random when the penguins can work together to sway the vote.

The ratio gets worse if we do as usual and add to death toll of innocents ourselves

Maybe we can roast weenies or something instead of s'mores? Gotta change it up with the new rounds.

And whatever the fuck a "weenie" is, I sure as shit are not eating it, we are in Scotland if you want to eat crap they deep fry Mars-bars in batter and have Hagis, me I'll have a pizza.

Shit, he last two times we killed an important asset from the get go, we have more time and she felt more powers this round, stuff we do not want to lose, it would be folly to randomly kill at this juncture, but Jura could feel the fear and knew where it was headed.

Deja-vu was an ugly word, Jura mused, French, She'd used it in hearing range of “Whoreson” (jroa WTF)and received scornful looks, more than one syllable I suppose. Jura chuckled, looked over to Whoreson and nodded, the grizzled veteran's thousand-yard stare gave away nothing and he looked away without acknowledgement, Jura smiled to herself, careful old man he thought, you forgot to scowl, people will think we are lovers.

No, Deja-vu was ugly because since Perth, Jura had been expecting it like a second heart attack, the consultancy cash from NASA had been easy money until then, keep an eye on certain people, add the odd meme, done.
The real black ops stuff had ceased years back when she had taken an arrow to the knee in the Catholic/Windsor turf-war over the Falklands.
Deja-vu, lying in the medical facility on South Georgia Island, listening to the penguins being herded below ground, sneaking down into the laboratories in the night, seeing the pitiful state of the King penguins, but transfixed by the red glower of the single imported Emperor, revenge and hate emanating in palpable waves and that mounting feeling that perhaps the people that paid your wages, weren't necessarily the good guys. What on earth had they done to those birds?

Now this place, expedient they said, they trust you, and Inti' is coming, get the intel' and leave.
But that wasn't possible now, com's down, reserve boat holed, weapons cache just not where it should be.

Deja vu, the Perseid meteor shower was growing to peak on the 13th, the link between NASA magic and the heavens, known to Jura, this looked like a set-up, a tidying of loose ends, that pulsing hatred was now here on this small Scottish rock, and Jura had no intention of being a tied up loose end.

Jura felt someone looking at her, leaning back she casually took in the room, Whoreson's gaze shifted from Jura's to the corner near the fire place, two hand axes rested against the wall near the wood basket, so the old guy felt it too, just as much a warning as possible support, should he suspect Jura, he would without doubt turn those axes to bloody use.

Either way Jura's life depended on/was tied up with the survival of this group whatever her former ties were, déjà vu indeed.

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.

Good game.

Very excellent to Boydster and Pez for the narrative
.
The penguins played a devious game, no suspicions cast upon them from any serious corner until the very end.

Three of us left to go and train the next generation of penguin hunters.

Raised glasses to the dead.

Edit; Special mentions to Bully, herder of cats. Jroa counter-intelligence, SCG cattering and Jane survival expert.

The last lynching? In Jura's core he felt so, perhaps Bully's spirit was with them, it was done and Jura had a date with a 14yr old ….............................Caribbean cask Balvenie, kicking the juke-box he took three glasses and the bottle, waved them at Jr and Jane and headed out to toast the grave of Bullwinkle.

And Paolo sang on.


Oh, from which we’ll rise over love
And over hate
Through this iron sky
That’s fast becoming our minds
Over fear and into freedom
Freedom!
Freedom!
Rain on me!
Rain on me!

A victory, and in that triumph a promise of a positive outcome to this sorry business, but too many had paid the higher price and one more innocent would surely fall before first light.

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.

One further day and then hopefully the survivors could return to civilisation, to sunlight, to salads.

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?).

Look, I understand it's pretty much a crap shoot at this point,

Ah but it was so!

This is endgame and you sir, by your own dead eyes do betray thy self, you will cluck no longer than this very day, If the servants of humanity do not at this time rally to the cause all would be lost, but I have faith and you will die by that faith, I name thee PENGUIN.

It is done, I have looked, and I have seen.

It is not an easy vision to describe, to see beyond the soul, to touch even momentarily the malevolence that resides in the cold wastes, out there where no light penetrates , to regard the silent sentinels in their cold hell of winter everlasting, to contemplate even fleetingly  the world as seen through those cruel blank flinty eyes, eyes that look at warmth and life and plot its extinction and have done so for eternities .

So, I won’t bother.

Follow me for humanity, for Mom. [I vote to lynch Deadsirius]
