Eventually, though, one person was pushed towards the gallows. That person was Gemma.
The executioner, silent, tied the rope around her neck. "Any last words."
"You guys, I'm innocent. If you kill me, you kill yourselves. Well, except yo--"
The rope tightened, and the body of Gemma, Cop fell to the floor.
Dugglyn, Mafioso turned to Elleni, Cop. "You're next."
Elleni blinked in shock. "But... I calculated! There was only an 0.1 chance that you were--"
Dug shrugged. "Stranger things have happened, and do with alarming regularity."
Elleni sighed. "This is all my fault..."
"You could run away. Join me in the dark side. My eyes have refried beans. Yours could, too." Dug pointed to her eyes, which were indeed drowning in refried beans.
Elleni attempted a sad smile. Her friend--or had she ever been that--was still there, somewhere.
After a long pause, she strengthened her resolve. "No. I am an officer of the law." She pulled out her small police pistol. It had one bullet, one shot at life.
She pulled back the safety, closed her eyes, and pulled the trigger. "This is for you, Gemma, Silente, Snow..."
She opened her eyes to find Dug grinning down at her. By some bizarre magic, the refried beans had stopped the bullet.
"Their only weakness is hanging," Dug explained. "That's why they're the perfect weapon for the dark side. You really should have joined while you had the chance. Pie!"
Refried beans were everywhere now. They seemed to be multiplying. They covered Elleni's eyes and hair until she couldn't breathe and fell to the floor, dead.
Dugglyn stood up and cackled. "MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"
Henry the owl screeched mournfully along.
Congratulations, Dugglyn! This is actually the first time that a mafioso has won this version, as far as I'm aware. This is based off a sample of like 3-4 games, but it's still an achievement!
Here's the complete role list.
- Dugglyn, Mafioso
- Elleni, Normal Cop
- Gemma, Naive Cop
- Silente, Insane Cop
- Snow, Paranoid Cop
Elleni and I are going to co-host the next version, which will start around May 9th or so. Sign-ups will be posted soon. Tell your friends!
