    I'm thinking I should go with Caedorus. We'll see what happens. Any requests for what I should do at night?

    Probably more to be gained from Caedorus's flip.
    It took me a bit to figure out what seven-quarter hours was. It would be better expressed as 1.75 hours imo. (I have to use decimal time at work at lot)

    I should be off to bed, so I'll probably miss EoD. I suppose I'll leave my vote where it is, as I don't really have any better ideas.

    END OF DISCUSSION PHASE TWO

    "Aha!" The crow doctor says, taking a bullet out of the body. "He was not killed by the knife, but by this bullet!"
    "Aha! In your faces! I told you all I was innocent!" The Red Herring shouts.
    "Hold on," says Colonel Harding, who is present despite not having a person piloting him. "You were still the only person in the room when he was killed. Nobody else could have done it. What difference does it make that you shot him before you stabbed him?"
    "There is much to be considered. For instance..." Thomas Gilfoyle, the butler, pulls on a particular book and the bookshelf swings open to reveal the entryway. "I think it's safe to say that we DON'T KNOW who could have been in this room."

    "Now I see no reason to think this bullet killed him, there's no entry wound!" Lawrence Longfoot points out. "How do we know YOU didn't plant it to protect your accomplice? Constance, Lucretia, we all know Squire William fought in the Schnauzer Wars. Did he ever take a bullet? I've never seen any medal showing as such."
    "No medal, because he never took such a wound," Constance says confidently.
    "Oh, perhaps a ghost shot him with a ghost bullet!" Lucretia suggests. "That's why there is no entry wound!?"
    "Aunt Lucretia..."
    "What?"
    "I think Doctor Magpie is quite the suspicious character... let's throw him in the cellar until we sort this out!"

    Jeremy Brockhollow heard the door open, and then a crash as his husband landed next to him.
    "Wine?"
    The crow dusted himself off. "I'd love some."

    Meanwhile back at Hamster street, a fox and a dog sit down for a lovely, if simple, dinner.
    "Lars, did you happen to see our mail today?"
    "Oh, apologies Sylvester, I seem to have misplaced it."
    "No worries, my good man. If it's important they'll send a follow-up letter."

    Matilda Molesly has been at Loam Hall longer than any other living soul. She practically raised Squire Brockhollow and, to hear him tell it, she practically raised his father as well.
    She's found with a slash across her throat in the Entrance Hall, left there on the ground next to the Vicar.

    Hello.
    I'm mad about Snowblaze, she was our greatest asset so far. I did think up something I think will be helpful.
    Each person should have made an investigative action. Out of the wolves, however, one at least of them spent their single action on a kill each night. I don't know if that negates both their actions. The point is that anyone who shared their clues is probably town. If each day I record the last day's clues, we'll know who has an alibi and who doesn't. The wolves could falsify information, so this isn't foolproof, but it will help.

    Last night I broke into the library, so I can investigate it later. I could break in to the secret passage next if enough of you want that.

    Here are all the clues collected from yesterday.

    So I think we all have evidence that can potentially point to someone else being evil?

    William Brockhollow was preparing to sell his entire 50% share in Mr. Boyd’s company to his competitor.

    So this implicates Armond Armadillo (Me) and Daisy D’umpstaire (Merel)

    I assume if we had someone playing Boyd it would also implicate them?

    So I don't think one clue is make or break, we probably all have a motive of some sort (isn't that how these stories go?).

    I am still looking for anything I can use my ability on since getting a bunch of clues from one clue object should be useful, so if anyone has advice on where to look next? Should I try the study again or somewhere else?

    I have a good clue to clear flat, the Squire (the original one, who died in the OP) died from a bullet not a knife but "there is no clear entry wound".

    Bullet to the heart, if it matters.

    Oh I broke into the library as well. I figured it might turn up a clue I can use my power on since the study didn't.

    And they probably killed Snowblaze because she was to helpful.

    Also heads up for folks I am going to PAX Unplugged this weekend and will be a bit less available. Sorry about that!

    Okay, so the good thing is that Snow died before I could get paranoid about her as usual, the bad thing is pretty much everything else. Caedorus was the closest thing I had to a wolfread, but now I feel pretty short on both those and townreads. I guess I kind of suspect Persolus, but that's mostly for avoiding getting voted out D1, which doesn't really mean much.

    That might help, though for the moment I'm going to be annoyingly vague and just say I broke in somewhere as a result of what I learned N1.

    Looking at the votes, I think Atheida was the only one who voted both flipped townies which isn't a great look in retrospect, but without knowing the alignments of the other wagons I'm not sure how much it means. I wonder if we could learn anything from the choice of NKs? I could see the wolves wanting to get rid of Kraken's power, but Snow's is probably less useful. Maybe they just wanted to get rid of an experienced player?

    What I discovered was that at the entrance hall tehre is a secret door connecting to the study, with swinging bookshelves on either side. The clue was taht not any of the culprits in Squire Brockhollow’s death used this secret door.

    Right, found it. I should start making a list of who shared their actions each night, then I can track activity patterns better.

    Athedia. The name is right there. The Jeen one was a bad read on my part but D2 I was just following Snowblazes lead.

    I think the bigger question is there some who voted for neither. That could hint to a wolf trying to be sneaky.

    The secret passage? I forget who found it, it wasn't me or Athedia, but I'm planning to break in. It's behind the room the Squire was killed in.

    Here are those last clues of yesterday (gamewise).

    Okay this isn't adding up for me.

There is also a secret door behind a bookshelf in the Study that leads into the entrance hall.

    The Drawing Room
    The living room in Loam Hall. Contains a door to the Entrance Hall on the right, a door into the Study further into the room, and at the far end of the room, a door to the Dining Room. There are several couches and chairs to relax on, as well as a large fireplace which creates sooty dust on the items in the Study.

    The Study
    A study that Squire Badger uses to conduct business with guests. To the left is a door that leads into the Drawing Room.


    Second Floor, none of which is accessible to guests.

    The Library
    The library in Loam Hall. The books are all alphabetized, and the room is decorated with busts of Roman emperors, including Barkus Aurelius.
    You are curious about a secret passage so you investigate the library? The secret door was between the entry hall and the study. You had to spend an action to specifically break into the library (same as I did) so we can't even investigate it until tomorrow.

    I know I want in there because after the study it is the most likely place for me to use my special ability.

    I don't feel good about this so I am doing a search for all mentions of secret anything. I will be excluding things that just quote the word secret to keep it reasonable.

    Day 2:

    Okay so this was already known from the description. Luizeu's clue seems to be that it wasn't used in the murder. Unsure of this.

Forum posts are much easier to fake emotions or control impressions on than live play or a text-based MUD. (I'm not good at faking anything, though).

    I just reread the clue I got, and it said that the list of deceased persons was in my "noticeably light purse." I'm not sure if that's a clue or a herring, but I'm throwing it out there.

    To-do: Reread the whole thread at least 10 times, check the list of players and roles and copy it somewhere to make my notes on, find a vote that actually means something and isn't just a bandwagon. Make a list of incriminating posts by the player instead of the character, since liars post differently than truthful players.

    Note to self: Don't vote for Snowblaze or Athedia this round. Maybe later if they start acting oddly, but for now I think they're clear.

    Question: Should I break in to the secret room? I could keep interrogating myself instead.

    I just got called Merel-Werewolf by one of the other Werewolf players from Saturday. I was only a wolf in two games, but I did organize the session, so I guess I asked for it. If you are wondering, I'm going crazy over Mafia-related games.
    Day 2: First mention of a secret room. Everything else has mentioned a door.

    So offering to break into the secret passage next, but we only get access for one investigation phase after breaking into a room meaning if you didn't use that in N3 it would be wasted.

    See initial post:

    Break In: Gain access to a room you do not have access to for the next turn only.
    Unless she didn't break in.

    Ignoring that they talked about a secret room one night, seems to be referencing the secret door that was known about in the intro descriptions and was already investigated by Luizeu. Why repeat evidence gained? Why waste the break in at the library?

    Ah, found the lover's alibi. You just didn't say it was your clue, I was confused.

    That isn't even an alibi

    So I think we all have evidence that can potentially point to someone else being evil?

    In context AV is just responding to the "we all have evidence that can potentially point to someone else being evil?" with "we have evidence to something weird" and that we need to keep getting clues for it to mean anything.

    Yeah it's not really an alibi in part cuz it's just not actionable information. It might be useful later, but right now it isn't.

    What we learned last night might be actionable information though. Certainly enough overheard veiled threats.

    Bathroom breaker switches.
    There are 14 in total.
    They are marked:
    EH/E
    BR
    DR1
    K/DR2
    LS
    EW-WC
    CB-SR
    LR
    LB
    US
    MB/WC/DR3
    SQ
    T
    D

    CB-SR is connected to LS, though it looks like it can be changed to connect to several different rooms.
    Here's what I got in the Bathroom deciphering a panel in there.

    You are curious about a secret passage so you investigate the library? The secret door was between the entry hall and the study. You had to spend an action to specifically break into the library (same as I did) so we can't even investigate it until tomorrow.

    I know I want in there because after the study it is the most likely place for me to use my special ability.

    I don't feel good about this so I am doing a search for all mentions of secret anything. I will be excluding things that just quote the word secret to keep it reasonable.




    Day 2:

    Okay so this was already known from the description. Luizeu's clue seems to be that it wasn't used in the murder. Unsure of this.



    Day 2: First mention of a secret room. Everything else has mentioned a door.



    So offering to break into the secret passage next, but we only get access for one investigation phase after breaking into a room meaning if you didn't use that in N3 it would be wasted.

    See initial post:



    Unless she didn't break in.



    Me realizing something felt off



    Ignoring that they talked about a secret room one night, seems to be referencing the secret door that was known about in the intro descriptions and was already investigated by Luizeu. Why repeat evidence gained? Why waste the break in at the library?
    I am just crazy. Also, Athedia was unsure about breaking in, and I acted reflexively; if I was unsure about something, I wouldn't do it. I am not very adept socially, I

    Here's the deal: If I broke into the library I will get a clue from it later. I think it might be better if I did it at a different time than Athedia (I get permanent access) so that there's less chance of our getting the same clue. Athedia gets two clues, but if we look at the same time I may get one of the clues she gets.

    I am planning on breaking into the secret door later. Unless someone else wants to. My role isn't terribly useful.

    I might do better at this if I knew you, (I did a little better with Snowblaze after reading her book, helped me understand her mind) because I have only ever played with people I knew or knew the writing styles of.

    I might point out that we could do better to be looking for patterns and liars here, less than mystery suspects by roles. It would also help if you each found someone's advice on playing the wolf. I read a good article from someone who was an experienced wolf player, but it's full of swearing so I can't share it here.

    "Alibi" in my language so far means "a possible excuse why so-and-so couldn't have committed the killing action last night, not yet proved." So any player asserting to have found a clue or done a different action will be cleared for one night if their post yields results, such as someone getting a clue from a break-in at a later date. Not for all nights, though. Look for the player(s) who get cleared the least amount of times.

    I am actually thinking I'll vote Book Wombat this time. He's starting to seem strange to me. I want to gauge his reaction to a bandwagon on him.

    I took some Mafia/Town quizzes and scored roughly 47% overall. So don't bet on my intuition. Or my logic. It's only slightly less effective than flipping a coin.

    I went back and reread D1, hoping it might give some insight Persolus and/or Athedia (or possibly the lovers, but I feel their role made a D1 wagon on them unlikely to succeed regardless of their alignment) but I didn't really find anything new. The reasons for voting Jeen weren't half-bad for D1 so people switching there might not say a lot of about the previous wagons, though the timing about Persolus' wagon kinda bothers me (when I'm a wolf and a buddy becomes a wagon, I usually give it a decent amount of time before trying to save them in case it I won't have to, which kinda matches the timeline of Persolus' D1).

    - - - Updated - - -

    @BW: Could you be more specific about what made you suspcious about Luizeu's votes?

    @Luizeu: Do you have a reason to suspect BW aside from activity level?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Does anyone know when it might be LYLO? If we assume a worst case scenario (which would be four wolves, I think?), I feel like it might not be that far off. And I guess the alignment of the lovers would make a difference, since that might mean two townies die at once (though on the plus side, it could also mean two wolves caught, even if they don't die together).

    - - - Updated - - -

    Alright, so if we keep voting off townies I think LYLO would be D4 with four wolves and D5 with three. That's not acccounting for the lovers and assuming wolves win at tied numbers. So... not great.

    In answer to BCH, using the words of JeenLeen when I tried to spare votes on BW D1. Looking at D1 I also saw that BCH's first vote was on BW as well so maybe theres something suspicious about them that you in part agree with me.
