    I suppose I'll go with MerelBlackbird, even if I wish the lovers hadn't been so bladescape about their reasons (though in a way I kinda feel like they would've talked more if they were trying to trick us, so... maybe a good sign? ).

    END OF DISCUSSION PHASE 3

    After a meeting with Squire Brockhollow, Daisy D'umpstaire, shaken, followed the eccentric Lucretia to her Séance room.
    "Welcome Miss D'umpstaire, Vicar Prescott, to my Séance Room!" She hastily sat them down at the table with the crystal ball in the middle and giddily rubbed the crystal ball.
    "Now, Miss D'umpstaire, as you are of course a Sagittarius I am certain you will want to go first!"
    Miss D'umpstaire, a Scorpio, nodded. "Absolutely, Miss Brockhollow. I'm mighty interested in your fortune telling."
    The room darkened and the Crystal Ball glowed as Lucretia began to spin it.
    "I see... a man! I can see... yes, that this man is or was known to you! Am I close, Miss D'umpstaire, that you know or have known a man!?"
    "...Why yes of course, Miss Brockhollow, I..."
    "Only answer my questions! Do not distract me as I COMMUNE WITH THE SPIRITS!"
    "Apologies."
    "This man... he is a harbinger of bad things... or maybe not. And when those bad things come, possibly because of this man, you might be able to do something to stop them... or maybe not! Yes, this is the insight of the spirits! Miss D'umpstaire, beware of a man, and look out for bad things and do your best to stop them... and you might be able to prevent them IF THEY HAPPEN!"
    A loud CRASH sounds below and Daisy looks away for a second.
    "AM I CLOSE!?"
    Drily, the Raccoon replied, "you're exactly right, darlin'."
    "ANOTHER ONE IN THE CORNER POCKET FOR LUCRETIA! SHE'S DONE IT AGAIN!"
    Vicar Ian, watching this whole thing, chimes in: "I am not a fan of this Séance."

    As accusations fall down around Daisy's ears, she thinks back to the prediction. As the trap door opens beneath her she mutters to herself,
    "No that was still useless."

    MerelBlackbird, Daisy D'umpstaire had nothing to do with the murder.

    END OF INVESTIGATION PHASE 3

    After that hearty discussion, accusations are thrown all about and then... the lights go out.
    Servants run for candles and turn them on. It seems the power all about Loam Hall has shut down.
    And Millie Milton lies dead, her wife in a state of shock and unwilling or unable to speak or do anything but hold her dearly departed's hand.

    Alright, now that we're likely in LYLO, I suppose I should mention what I've been up to. N1 I searched the scéance room (mostly hoping there might be something to my character being psychic, but alas) and found the Squire's secret study (if I understand the layout correctly, it's between the library and the scéance room), which I broke into N2. Last night I found a letter that he was writing, saying that he "won't be threatened or bullied by Catherine McCabbage".

    It could be a red herring (no, not the flat footed kind), so if anyone has a better case against someone, I'd love to hear it, but for now I'm going with Eclipse Dynasty.

    Small clarification, since on a second look it is a bit misleading, but to be clear what I mean is that I interrogated myself yesternight and got the first result (of getting paid for something), and got the second result last night (the reason for getting paid). Not that these things happened in real time

    I could mention my d1 investigate of myself if that'd help clear up said herring? But the pushing him around/bullying is talking about my husband's death and the payout he had to give me from no foul play being found. my last night investigation did say how Gangie Green was digging up corpses for Squire for months and some of them were mice. Unsure if that is anything.

    Good to know, but not enough to move my vote (sorry in advance if you're innocent). Not sure what to think about the corpse stuff, especially since BW has already admitted to something like that (though I suppose that could be a wolf trying to get out ahead of something that'd make them look bad).

    Anyway, does anyone else have any new info to share? I know we can't exactly trust all of it (or each other) but considering the situation I feel like almost anything is better than nothing.

    Hmmm.. no that's reasonable, I will say my character does have the "is suspicious" from squire's negligence is what killed my husband.

    D1- Investigated self, "Sylvester Cross failed to find any evidence of foul play when it came to your husband’s death, Squire Brockhollow had to pay you quite a bit of money. And he looked oddly giddy doing it."
    D2- Was an interrogate on Millie which just found an american coin which was, odd and not too useful
    D3- I interrogated Gangie and ya, already said that

    Husband power is.. hard to use at all, but if I were to guess who it could be rn, It'd be Caerulea at the highest since I feel one of the brockhollows is a wolf with Luizeu or Athedia being in second place

    Your info about Catherine in the secret study lines up p good on my side enough that you seem not a wolf, and Green just.. their character is more of a red herring than a person named red herring, especially with all the corpse talk

    ~~know this is all gonna make me look suspicious as heck since I haven't spoken much but its whatever~~ :>

    Finally back to the real world. Comic-Con Convention in São Paulo was crazy, so I was a little away. Now, I'm back.

    My role is Thomas Gilfoyle, the butler and my powers are:
    "The butler at Loam Hall, you have access to all the rooms the servants do."
    So I tried to investigate rooms to see if I could find any information. Here is what I found:

    D1- At the entrance hall there is a secret door connecting to the study, with swinging bookshelves on either side. The clue was that not any of the culprits in Squire Brockhollow’s death used this secret door.
    D2 - The Servants' Quarters: Unusual mud footprints coming from the outside, indicating a possible presence from someone that came from outside.
    D3 - The Kitchen: a burnt piece of paper that resembles an envelope. Someone tried to destroy some kind of evidence in the stove.

    I also suspect Athedia being a wolf.

    I interrogated Lucretia and learned that her brother wanted to have a serious chat with Constance and Jeremy, but she convinced him to surprise them later.
    This is what I got from interrogating Athedia last night.

    Oh I probably should have interogatted myself at some point. I searched the library since I only had access for one night. I found a bunch of newspaper articles.

    You investigate the library and ignore the busts of Roman Emperors, instead finding a bunch of old newspaper articles. They speak of Fletcher Cottonbottom's criminal empire, and one of them has a picture of Gangie Green as one of his gang members.
    Does anyone have anything backing that up?

    I suppose that would just be me, considering the lovers are dead. The wagons were BW and Merel, I didn't really have an opinion either way on BW but I was leaning town on the lovers so when they voted Merel I assumed the information they hinted at was pointing towards her (plus the whole "collecting everyone's clues" seemed like the sort of thing a wolf might do to look like they're contributing).

    I should really try and get some sleep soon, though I'm not really sure what to do with my vote. I still think my clue is a decent reason to vote Eclipse (might just be because of how long it took me to get). I have no idea about Caerulea. Could certainly be a wolf, but with how little she's posted she might also be an attractive voting target for the wolves. Still not getting much of a read on BW, though there seem to be several clues pointing in that direction (assuming the people revealing them are to be trusted), including one from BW himself which makes things more confusing.

    I guess it's not too late to start an entirely new wagon, in which case Persolus would probably be my first choice, but that's basically just gut feeling.

    Eh, I might as well trust in my own detective work, I suppose.

    Confusion and uncertainty wins out. People point the finger at the widow, at Constance. Finally, the trap door is opened but all who are innocent, not just the one intended to be thrown in, feel a surprise push.
    And you fall.
    You land roughly on the cellar floor. Not too long after you come three bodies – the already lifeless husks of Armond Armadillo, Thomas Gilfoyle, and Lucretia Brockhollow. No, wait... that's who's looking down at you.
    "Apologies, Gangie, but you just knew too much!" Lucretia calls down. The weasel hisses.
    "I don't know nothin'!"
    "And Daisy Dumpster. Did you really have the gall to threaten my brother with this? To... to drag his name through the mud over a few missing bodies? No muck like you could touch our family name. Even if we ignored that you're a commoner, you mangy little raccoon... you are what you eat. Trash."
    Constance rights herself and growls up at her aunt.
    "Aunt Lucretia, how could you pretend to be doing this for Father!? What did you do to him!?"
    "You wouldn't have known about the bullet he took in the Schnauzer Wars, either of you. You're the applies of his eye. Your Father took his regiment behind enemy lines to silence some people for the criminals who paid our many debts recently. Useful connections, but now I say we take the money and run! This was always the plan, William even had bodies made for the two of you as well. But then as the time approached to hide you away and replace you with the fake bodies... my dear brother got cold feet. Saying that we could pay back our debts, we'd just need to live with less. Buy me less powder and crystals. Count our money ourselves, like.... peasants! Why, the last time I even SAW money, I was a schoolgirl! No... William hatched this plan, and we're going to go through with it."
    Jars go over the side and shatter around you. You know the smell of kerosene as Gilfoyle and Armadillo fill the cellar with the stuff.
    "No... wait, Aunt Lucretia, it's not too late to stop this! Please!" Jeremy shouts back.
    "You sully our good name by marrying a commoner... and you think you can go about representing us? Showing up to functions with that... that... that... doctor." Rage tints Lucretia's every word.
    "Light them up. It's too bad we all died in this fire. I was hoping to keep one of them around to blame for the whole thing."
    "There's always Connor McCabbage in the secret study, ma'am."
    "Oh, perfect! Mister Gilfoyle, you think of everything!"
    "Of course, ma'am."
    The rat struck a match, dropped it.
    And all was over.
