Round 7 Day 2

The mafioso slunk down the corridor. They entered a room. The occupant of the room looked up. They had been playing a game of chess against themselves and losing horribly. As soon as they saw the masked figure, they knew the game was up, but they tried to prolong it.
"I challenge you to a game of chess! If I win, I get to live."
The mafioso shrugged. They'd kill the poor insignificant human no matter what the results of the game were, but they were running ahead of schedule. There was time to humor their prey first, let them think there was a chance of escape and then crush it. "Very well then, you go first."
The "poor insignificant human" nodded and once the chess game had been set up, they moved their king's pawn forward two spaces.

*******

Later in the night, the white king lay on its side. The mafioso had won.

*******

A pool of blood, vision fading. She looked up, asked the mafioso to remove their mask so she could know who had killed her.

*******

The mafioso removed a mask. Underneath was Batman.

*******

No, that couldn't be right. It was another mask, then.


*******

She wouldn't get to know who killed her

*******

Her eyes closed, then opened.

*******

She wouldn't get to know

*******

Her eyes closed

*******

Darkness

*******

End?

*******

*******

*******

The next morning, there was no one dead.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Okay so I was roleblocked again


But so was the Mafia because no one died

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay. Which one of you has been lying? Which one of you is batman? :P


So someone was healed then. If the person basically died and then there was no dead body then they must've been healed.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Oops.


Um yeah.


I was roleblocked the first night

Forgot I didn't mention that before...

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Wait, you were roleblocked again Dug?

Star Inkbright said...

YAAAAAAYYY NO ONE DIED!!!

Actually, I'm more likely to think this was a healing. . .
Idk, it reads more like a healing. But we've already lost a doctor, so.. . Idk. D:

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

So does that mean that the Mafia is a roleblocker? That's good to know.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Oh. Would that mean they were healed??

Then we had two doctors?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Oh.
Wait that's true.
Wait.
What.
But.
Wait we actually did get two doctors then

Star Inkbright said...

Everyone knows that Dean Winchester is Batman
His dad is even Batman's dad
That's irrefutable proof

But anyway.
Soooo. . . Possibly two roleblockers, possibly two doctors.
*frowns *

Wtf is this game. XD

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

This conversation is going in circles XD
Though I do agree it sounds more like a healing



and yeah. I was roleblocked the first night
And last night

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay, so.
We know that we have two doctors then.
So 2/5 are doctors.
There's a roleblocker.
3/5, possibly 4/5

Star Inkbright said...

I think that Mafia IS likely to be a roleblocker if we have two. . . There's only four town roles left, so I doubt they're two roleblockers and two doctors. Idk.

I hope the Mafia is a roleblocker. . . That power's about average. Could be worse. Hate Kidnappers. *shudders *

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

I'd assume the Mafia is a roleblocker? Because if it was a townie they wouldn't roleblock me again because obviously on the first night it didn't work

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay.
We definitely have two doctors because Jimithy died and the victim was healed last night.
There are two roleblockers.
And there are two unknowns.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

@Dug two separate roleblockers, they wouldn't know who blocked who.

Star Inkbright said...

They didn't know that you got roleblocked the first night, though. One townie could have got you the first night and another got you the second.

I personally feel that the mafias a roleblocker though. Idk, I just think only have two remaining townie roles is a bit boring. :P

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

@Jai and Star

Oh yeah, right.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

@Dug xD So we might have two roleblockers.
Damn.. I'm happy we have two doctors but now the Mafia know too. We just lost an advantage we didn't even know we had. I mean we still have the advantage of not knowing who said Doctor is but still.

Star Inkbright said...

Them knowing won't do much, though. I mean, they don't know who the doctor is. They're still targeting blindly.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Still. When they didn't know they'd have tried to take out the second biggest threat..

Raven Astracae said...

Still if someone was healed, the doctor now knows one innocent + themselves. So that's good. also, I wasn't role locked again so like. there is probably one mafia roleblocker and one town roleblocker if Dugglyn is telling the truth. If Dugglyn isn't telling the truth. Like idk, and this is all speculation, not an accusation, Dugglyn could be the mafia and just pretend to be roleblocked so that we deem her innocent.

Raven Astracae said...

So if Dugglyn is tellibgb the truth there's most likely mafia and town rb but if she's lying, then there's probably only town. But then for there to be a second rb, someone else has to of been rb'ed last night other than Dugglyn, right?

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

okay, so either dug is lying or there ARE 2 role blockers bc I was blocked last night.

pffffft

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

there are/were 6 players

fabi, I s2g if you jjst went "lets guve them 2 of everything" I'm going to hurt you

Raven Astracae said...

Okay so the townie roleblocker probably blocked me night 1 and then you night 2. and then if there is a mafia roleblocker and they blocked Dugglyn twice. Then the mafia is either Star or Jai.

Raven Astracae said...

Actually um

Raven Astracae said...

Yeah idk

Raven Astracae said...

Actually I reckon the mafia roleblocker did what Star said. Dugglyn was probably blocked by two different roleblocker a because the mafia couldn't afford to give away their role but since Dugglyn didn't claim to be blocked someone blcoked her again by chance.

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

I only know two people for certain that are not Mafia, and one of them ks myself, so...

pfffft

Raven Astracae said...

But yeah idk.

If we're all telling the truth then only Jai or Star could be the mafia, but then again, one of us might be lying.

Raven Astracae said...

Well I mean I also know for certain that someone else isn't the mafia.

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

if everyone is telling the truth then it's Star

but, personally, my gut instinct is Dug

Raven Astracae said...

Well same because I know Jai is innocent

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

and bc I've basically just said that I know someone's innocent, and bc I was role blocked last night, I'm pretty sure you can all guess what my role is

so

I'm probably gonna die tonight.

Raven Astracae said...

Actually on Day 1 my gut instinct was Dugglyn or Star.

Now I think I know who might be a town roleblocker so they either roleblocked me and you or me and Dugglyn or you and Dugglyn. (Maybe they're not the rb) But if they are the rb and confirm that they have rb'ed Dugglyn then Star is definitely he mafia.

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

so basically you're saying Sil is a roleblocker and would like her to confirm who she's rollblocked

which leaves dug with a roll yet to be revealed

Raven Astracae said...

And I only think Star might definitely be the mafia bc when Dugglyn claimed to be rb'ed twice she was all, "maybe it wasn't like that" kinda jumping to the mafia's defence but I mean, we can always test our theories on the next night because we can't all be rb'ed so one of us would find answers

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

and this is all hinging on Dug telling the truth

Raven Astracae said...

I am saying that, very much.

Raven Astracae said...

Exactly so.

We can take whatever Jai says as the truth bc we both know she's innocent. And whatever information she gives can help us determine if the mafia is Star or Dugglyn.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Are you saying you're the cop, Snow?


And Raven, how do you know Jai is innocent?



I don't know who is innocent because I've been role blocked every night so I have no idea :/

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Guys it's really not me

I just thought maybe if I didn't say I was roleblocked the first night I might not be targeted again

....
Why did I think that though

I can't remember anymore

There was some reason...

Raven Astracae said...

Are you claiming to be a cop Dugg?

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

It's all good, Dug. At the moment we're thinking Stsr, we just need Sil to tell us if she's a role blocker, and if she is, who she blocked

basically, the role list that seems most likely atm for me is

Star MAFIA
Sil ROLE BLOCKER
Dug ?
Raven DOCTOR
Me COP

however, for this theory, I'm trusting Ravens word. If Sil comes forward as anything other than role blocker, than this is all out the widow.

Raven Astracae said...

F it. there's probably only one night left. I am a doctor I tried to heal Snow night one but was roleblocked and last night I healed Jai, that's how I know she's innocent because she was attacked.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

I should have worded that better.


Yeah. I'm the cop.

Which makes me sound really guilty because I can't even tell you the results I got because I was role blocked both nights

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Wait actually this might work
(I was thinking about how Snow and I both look guilty but j realize now it could actually work)


Because snow and I are cops

Jimithy and Raven are doctors

And Jai is a roleblocker and so is Mafia, the star member.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Oops I mixed up Star and Mafia

Sorry
I'm sick. Thinking isn't going the best right now XD

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

oh my God

okay, for now lets assume that we're both telling the truth, because fabi gave us 2 of every other roll, so why not this one too.

We still need Sil tl confirm, and if she does, we hang Star

if she doesn't, I investigate Dug (if I'm not role blocked) and Dug investigates me

if we do hang Star and she's innocent, SORRY, but same plan as above

if one of us dies, then yeah

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Last night I was killed and then healed by a doctor (hence why I was so adamant that there was another one)
On night one I roleblocked Duggy (Sorry bud)
Last night I roleblocked Snow (Sorry bud)

So in my eyes it's either Raven or Star, because those are the only two people I haven't roleblocked.

So, instead of hanging anyone today I move that we let night come around. I'll roleblock Star because even if she roleblocks me back, we can't negate each other's roleblockability so it'll still stop her from being able to kill.

Sorry if any of that makes no sense, it's 3am and my brain is goop. Questions?

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

"Mafia, the star member." XD

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

I was tired and sick and I hadn't eaten all day :P

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

Ily Carzainia, the Dugglyn member, :-P

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

Sounds like a plan, Sil

So, no hanging, but Star is blocked

Dug, we could investigate Star instead of each other maybe?

I'm willing to trust you, so if you're willing to trust me, we can see who's guilty and who isn't

if we are both cops, I say one of us checks Star out and one of us checks Raven out but *shrugs*

although if we both check Star, even if she role blocks one of us, the other will have a result...

idk, but yeah. Dug and I need to discuss who to investigate.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

That's a great idea Snow!

I tried to invest Raven last night XD

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Ily Fabi

I can't think of a good reply -_- :P

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Good plan. Both of you investigate Star.

Hmm. I can see a rather painful flaw with this plan..

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Actually it might be wiser to hang her.
Then we get a definite answer whereas if we go with the plan I just said we might not as there is a way to dance around it.

Okay, it's up to you guys then but imma vote to hang instead..

Castvote Star

Raven Astracae said...

Castvote Star

I am 100% confident it's her.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I'm roughly 70% confident it's her. Maybe 75/80%

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Next vote locks it in.

Shall we wait so Star can nominate one of us to hang so if she argues well we have someone to switch to?

Star Inkbright said...

DUUUUUDEE

Don't hang me!! D:

I'm the doctor. I healed Jai. If you look back, Raven notes that only me or Jai could be the mafia. She must have decided to frame me, possibly on a coin toss. Once Snow goes along with it, she gets more confident with saying it. If she claimed to be a roleblocker, we'd be more likely to assume Mafia and the accusations might get more tangled because of having two roleblockers and lots of roleblockees, whereas if she claimed doctor, only one person (moi) could refute her claim. And um. I'm here. Refuting. Hi.
Ravens given us no information that can actually confirm her guilt or innocence. It's um. Yeah. So. Just a question of who you believe really.

castvote Raven

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

Same, Dug.

eh

Castvote Star

I'm about 75% confident

but I have no reason to think anyone else is suspicious, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

Jai, if this goes wrong, roleblock Raven.

Dug and I will check her, just to be sure.

I'm sorry, Star, if you are telling the truth. But we have a chance to end it early...

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

I would believe you, Star, but Raven was role blocked 1st night, and as we've established by Dug being role blocked twice, we have 2 blockers. And as you didn't even try to throw out a counter claim at the time, I am forced to assume that she isn't the mafia and that you are

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Well either way now we've reached majority.

Star will have 24 hours to convince us not to kill her. In that time we can remove our vote or change it to Raven.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

*leans close to Star* were you running out of time? Were you struggling to attend due to time? *pokes* Are you batman.

Star Inkbright said...

*mutters* dean winchester is batman
cat says so so it must be true

Sorry, thought I said this but apparently I didn't. . . I'm claiming that I'm a doctor and Raven's a Mafia blocker. We definitely have two blockers, and I really do think the mafia is a roleblocker. It just makes sense.

I understand it'll probably be really hard to make you believe me because honestly everything I say makes me sound like a guilty person, and like, I'm trying to type like I'm not guilty and it's just making me seem more guilty to myself. XD But um. This is all I have. I honestly am a doctor. I healed Jaimie the second night and Dugglyn the first night. No one's investigated me or roleblocked me, so despite the way it looks, you can't know for certain that I'm actually guilty. Just as you can't know for certain that Raven is actually innocent. I promise I'm not lying.

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

I suppose raven could have chosen not to block anyone the frst night so she could claim to be blocked herself and than show herself as innocent when someone else was second round, however I feel like if this was the case, she wouldn't have been the person to say "was anyone role blocked?" and may have just come out with "I was role blocked" to begin with

so

yeah.

also, I keep changing between using role and roll

which one is it meant to be? *slides off to look*

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Role, as in a role in a play, not roll as in roll around.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay.
In my eyes it's either Raven or Star
It's just a case of figuring out which one of them it is.

Raven did say that she knew I'd been attacked and that she'd healed me even though I didn't say I'd be attacked previous to that, which shifts her more towards the innocent end.

However I am PAINFULLY aware of how good at mental manipulation Raven is.

I think either way the Townies have won, the only question is do we lost another townie before we win or do we not.

Star do you have any evidence to say in your favour?

Star Inkbright said...

Sadly, I'm not sure there is much. D:

I didn't see Jai's comment before I suggested it was probably a healing
I was a strong advocate of the mafia being a roleblocker, which wouldn't make much sense if I WAS a Mafia roleblocker
No one has proven me guilty; no one has investigated me or roleblocked me
*frowns, thinking*

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

One could argue that it was rather obvious that it was a healing, considering the scene was written with the person dying at the mafias hands and then there being no body.

As for "No one has proven me guilty" Raven could also say the exact same thing, as she has yet to be proven guilty.

Star Inkbright said...

Yeah, I know.

I know. Neither of us have been proven innocent or guilty. That's what makes it so hard. :/

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I agree that it makes is bloomin difficult.

Okay, I'm trying to decide if theirs any evidence in your favour.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

**there's

I can't believe I used the wrong there
Nope
Kmn for I have foresaken the rules of English! Me, and English language student who is unable to English correctly! For shame!

Star Inkbright said...

XD

Raven Astracae said...

So um

First of all, rude. I made a bunch of notes on day 1 and I was like, lol, and said a bunch of things and going from my gut decided that the mafia was either Dugglyn or Star. Because the one thing that Star usually does is list out information like

Things we know
- blah blah blah
- the probability of truth
- really good things that will screw the mafia over

This time all she did was like, make the "XD" face and laugh about. Non-committal.

Secondly, if we go back to day 1 an everyone is there freaking out about losing the doctor and I say something along there lines of "don't worry, there are other ways to heal people" in a round-about way of claiming that I could do something along those lines. Furthermore, once it was confirmed that there could be multiple people as the same role I made note that we could have two doctors.
Now, I said these things because I thought, hey, I've been mafia every time but this time now and If it comes down to the nitty gritty I've got to be entirely sure that I'm in the clean.

Thirdly, thank-you. I am absolutely flattered that you think I am a manipulative person. I feel great. Powerful. A force to be reckoned with. But not this time, which is a relief, I've played the bad guy far too long.

Also, I'm upset that you're accusing me of benign the mafia, Star, because it took every ounce of self restraint I had to not scream on here that I'd heale Jai when I got that wonderful email. Like, I am still so proud of myself for deducing that she was the one giving the most information and therefore most likely to be attacked and then she was actual attacked and I healed her and omg, stop detracting be from my victory. I am a god. I am a god. Thank you. Respect me. Respect your God. (a slightly less powerful God than Fabi)

Raven Astracae said...

The God is going for coffee

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

I'm siding with Raven here, because her gut said the exact same thing as mine - Dug or Star.

And because I know Sil is innocent, once she confirmed blocking Dug I can now mark her as innocent too. Which really only leaves Star and Raven as not confirmed, and lookkng back at how the gake has gone and at who's said what, I'm more inclined to believe Raven's innocence than Star's

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

how long does Star have left now?

We Are Like Young Volcanoes said...

just under 3 hours.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Well i mean
Fabi never officially announces the trial period started
Technically she has roughly two hours and a half I think
But Fabi will probably (had better) be asleep by then so *shrugs*

Star Inkbright said...

Star currently feels kind of ill. so star's typing may not be up to its usual starry-ness. I'm sorry. Also um, I promise that isn't just a tactic. :P

Um. Star is sorry that you all seem to be more inclined to instincyryally think I'm evil. Star can't really do much about that. Star is also sorry that there isn't more proof for Star being innocent. Star assumes that Raven is also sorry, annoyed, some word something, about that. It's just how it works out sometimes. Sometimes everyone knows beyond any doubt that someone is innocent (Jaimie this game) and sometimes there just isn't much evidence. It's just how it goes.

I'm sorry if my accusations upset you, Raven. I don't mean to upset people, but I believe that worrying about upsetting people shouldn't interfere with how you play the game. I've accused you because I believe you are the mafia, as you have me, and if that upsets you then um sorry I'm just trying to win & not be hung here.

Also. When we started this game I um. . .
What WAS I doing when we started this game?
WHEN DID THE GAME BEGIN?
*hops onto adjacent tab*

Okay, day 1 was on Thursday, Fabi's time, God knows what that is in my time. By Thursday I was either finishing hosting a game on WhatsApp (which was like stress because I'm stupid and fucked up the first game) or starting a game on WhatsApp, at which point I'm like concentrating on that because I'm playing with new players and I have to show them how to play the game, and in the meantime Cat is asking me for hosting advice and it's not even like I'm good at knowing how to host because I did it once and fucked up. And whilst I'm doing that I'm obviously trying to do schoolwork and do normal school, and then every now and then my family want to kidnap me to watch TV with me. And yeah then at 8 am on Saturday i sort of ran off on a spontaneous road trip and wasn't back till 3 pm on Sunday. After which I'm tired and have to catch up on homework.
And so sorry if I'm not as free time and motivation and dedication as normal. I am trying. And when it's the first day anyway and hanging on first day is usually a bad idea, seems like little point making self do whole analysis normal thing when self would have to put effort into doing and not much point anyway because no evidence.

Um if that made no sense at all then just ignore.

Sorry.

Hate typing when I don't feel like my normal self because I'm always scared that I unintentionally said something that hurt someone without realising. If I did. Not intentional.

Star Inkbright said...

Also. If that was late. Also sorry. Can't read times.

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

Yeah no I wasn't awake at 12:30 my time much less 12:30 Seattle time

(alsoitotallydidntrealizethevotelockedoops)

I've got some time to write now, but it might not be posted until later because I want Star's death to be good, and I have class in an hour.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay :) That's fine by me. And don't worry xD I called out that it had locked in (presuming that was okay and official enough)

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

Yeah it locks at the majority regardless of whether or not I'm there

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

I just sort of skimmed and didn't see the vote that wasn't in bold. Oops.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

That's alright :) Everyone misses stuff sometimes.

But please for the love of god star be the Mafia!

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

Haha there is no Mafia. There were two cops, two doctors, and two town Roleblockers, the killings were all decided randomly by a robot. :-)










Jk

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

See I could imagine you doing that just to watch us run around lost and lynching each other and growing more and more confused/manic.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I want a round where every kill is just really clumsy and accidental and the Mafia member didn't actually TRY to kill anyone it just kind of happened and to try make it up to the victims they dig every grave regulation depth, alone, and make sure to put flowers on it and get a bit of drift wood or something and use that fire method to burn their names and an apology into the wood.

Star Inkbright said...

@Lantern: XD Ah, that would be funny.

I'd laugh after I finished screaming in annoyance. XD

@Jai: :) That would be nice.

(Sorry about earlier. Feeling a bit better now.)

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I just love the idea of a really clumsy person who doesn't actually mean to hurt anyone.
Bonus points if they're actually just trying to do something really REALLY nice.

Star Inkbright said...

Really that's just tragic in so many ways :(


(I tell you what it's like
It's like Castiel
The amount of death that would not have occurred if Castiel had not occurred is really quite phenomenal, and it's reall sad because all he's trying to do is make things better and be a good person, but it always seems to end up going wrong
My mum says that watching the Cas episodes is like watching Mr Bean in a horror movie :P)

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

True, it would be sad.

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

Not gonna lie, I definitely considered having a bot Mafia, but I decided that'd be too mean

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

xD Only you would consider that :P I think it'd be quite interesting to see who manages to be last one standing in that situation.

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

Also Star if you have any death requests, lemme know via email

Star Inkbright said...

XD It would be sooo mean. Fun though. :)

I bet I wouldn't die first, but I wouldn't die last.

:) Okay. I don't think I do, but okay.

Raven Astracae said...

MWAHHAHAHAHAHGAHAHS

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Uhm
Well that is very distinctly a bad sign
