Round 2 Night 4

As the sun set, several hands pushed Lavender Hope toward the gallows. By the end, she walked willingly. Resistance was futile. They all believed she was guilty.

One hand held her back.

"Wait." Silente's voice, quiet though it was, broke through the commotion. "I can't do this without you, Lav. We're in this together."

Lav shook her head. "Sil, I've been deceiving you this whole time. I'm one of the--"

Silente squeezed Lav's wrist even tighter. "Don't try to lie and protect me. It won't work. They knew I was the other mafioso before even before I blatantly admitted it. I'm going to die soon, and I'd rather it wasn't alone."

Lav nodded and gave Silente a hug. "Okay. Together it is."

No one felt like saying no to a request like that.

Lavender and Silente walked up to the gallows side by side.

"Do not go gentle into that good night," Silente said, looking meaningfully at Lav. "Just because we haven't won doesn't mean we didn't fight. Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

Lav nodded. "I will go down with this ship. I won't put my hands up and surrender."

"It's been a pleasure working with you, Lav."

"Same to you, Sil."

As soon as their moment of song and emotion was over, Lavender, Mafioso and Silente, Mafioso hung side by side.

As you may have noticed, this round has ended a bit earlier than it needed to. This is because a few people contacted me and said they were experiencing negative emotions as a result of the game. I've decided to cut it short rather than risk anyone getting hurt further. I apologize for my shortcomings as a host.

I know this game was fun for a lot of people, so I'll consider bringing it back in June, but right now I need a break, and I know others do as well. If I bring the game back, I will take steps to make sure the game is more fair and enjoyable for everyone.

Thank you all for playing.

Much love,

Fabi

Round 2 Day 4

The sky darkened and everyone went inside. Soon the only noises to be heard were Henry's gleeful screeches, the terrified squeaks of small rodents, and the howling of a wolf somewhere in the distance.

Until... A door creak. A footstep. A masked figure exited their home and hid in the underbrush. A moment later, another. They verified each others' identities with the secret Mafia handshake and proceeded with the night's business.

A little while later, the two mafiosi exited someone's house, each holding a bloodied knife.

In the morning, though, there was no dead body, and the bloodstains in the would-be victim's house had been dutifully cleaned up, so nobody but those involved knew who had been al let killed.

IT IS NOW DAY 4

Comment moderation will be turned off as soon as I've emailed out the results of everyone's night actions. You can use this time to discuss amongst yourselves in the comment section and try to sleuth out the mafioso. You do not have to share the results of your investigations, though failing to do so may make you seem suspicious.

If you want to hang a suspected mafioso, you can type castvote [player's name]
If you type "vote" rather than "castvote," your vote will be valid if I see it. However, I'm gonna Ctrl-F "castvote" when tallying up, so that's not a guarantee. Also please avoid using the word castvote when you're not voting.
If you want to redact a vote (which you can only do before it's reached a majority), type unvote. Please use bold! The code for that is <b>Bold text</b>

You are not obligated to hang somebody, though failing to do so may give the mafioso an advantage. However, hanging an innocent citizen has very major bad consequences in a game this small.

The day will end Wednesday, May the Fourth be With You, sometime between 9PM-12AM Thursday Pacific time (5-8AM Thursday UK time) unless a majority is reached and a suspect is selected, or unless people vote skip day, which also requires a majority vote.

If a suspect is selected, their 24-hour defense phase will begin immediately, even if I am not online to say so. During that time, you may castvote innocent or guilty, and you may change your vote at any time. The vote will not lock until the end of the defense phase.



The majority of votes needed today is 5.

If you have any questions, comment them in italics or email me. Or just say them, I'll probably see anyway I guess.
