Also sorry Lottie, I just figured I misunderstood your implication *facepalm*

Anyway, that being said, there's still votes to go, and I ultimately trust the dead not to mess this up for us. (Maybe I'm shirking responsibility, but. Obviously if we lynch a wolf, it was our doing, and if we lynch an innocent, it was the dead's fault. )

I feel we have to sever this Gordian knot somehow. I'd prefer lynching Legate, but if that's not going to happen

Okay. It's down to Sally vs Huin for me, and I'm more suspicious of Sally. But I absolutely see the argument for voting someone who, if they are a wolf, gives you more information, and Huin absolutely fits that bill. I believe Legate just cast the tiebreaking vote anyway, so if I vote Sally that allows Pitch to make the decision, which I do find tempting after yesterDay! Tricky business.

Ahh, I see I deliberated too long and the deed is done. I'll make it a Dead-proof majority, apologies to the Dead Thread:

....I might do that anyway.

For this, I tossed and turned and picked up the phone again?

I'm still an ordo even though I'm getting lynched, so why not take this time to consider what that means for your jolly information-gathering exercise? (I'd personally start with the fact that all three of my wolf picks voted for me - or doesn't it count if I don't append Wolf to their names? )

Perhaps there lies a curse upon my fate.
Forgive me that I did not see it sooner!


See you in the Dead Thread - hopefully the wolves first.

Sometimes it just happens that way. Having the tiebreaker be "first to receive the votes" is very effective at encouraging early votes!

Are you telling me this was some kind of a test/game from your part????

Or are you threatening Legate??

I don't know. Too late for my brain. I would really like to know what Boro is scheming, but hopefully knowing Huin's role will help.


edit: xed with everyone after Boro

Huin, I hope you're a wolf and trolling, but whether you are or not, you can rest assured I will CERTAINLY look at Boro and Legate toMorrow. If you're innocent, I'm sorry, and I hope that's a comforting thought.

Ps. How is it still only .54???

What, by Lynching For Information and then flailing dramatically about when the vote gets taken up? Nah, and your strings of random letters aren't Oscar-worthy innocence either.

No I mean how I'm very nervous that everyone after me voted for Huey, after everyone kept saying it wasn't a "likely possibility."

So, in my opinion either Huey is a wolf and his 2 mates bussed him. Or I'm suddenly fearing that he is as he says, just an ordo, and all these Huey votes at the end (Lommy, Legate, Pitch, Lottie) that 3 of you are wolves.

I wouldn't be hugely surprised. I realized that of the four people left, none of us were going to agree on anyone else - no one else seemed to want to vote Sally, I didn't want to vote Boro, Pitch didn't want to vote Pitch...

DL. Night 3 Begins. Stop posting.

The outlaws of Dorthorion were keeping their distance toDay, far more so than the 6 feet they kept during the plague that burned through their camp last Year. Friends had turned against friends. Old rivalries had taken hold again. The outlaws could barely trust themselves and their own judgement, let alone the judgement of their neighbors. They eyed each other suspiciously, looking for cuts or injuries that could have occured during the attack the Night prior.

Then the finger pointing began.

“It’s Lottie, Sally, and Hui,” yelled Lommy.

“No, no, no, I think Lottie is innocent and Sally… ehh...it’s definitely Boro,” said Hui.

"Excuse me?" Boro asked. "No, it's definitely Hui!"

Sally could be a wolf. She talks an awful lot about “gut feelings”,” Legate added.

Legate looks suspicious to me,” Boro chimed in.

Lottie is wearing green shoes and I don’t like that,” Sally said, pointing to Lottie’s feet.

“Hey! My shoes are awesome!”

“Yeah, well Sally you’re wearing a brown coat and that looks suspicious to me!” Kath countered. “Plus Form voted for her yesterday and now he’s dead!”

“Yeah, I’m going to go with Lottie too,” Soriman said.

“Why?” Kath asked.

“Uhh...brown coat! I don’t like brown coats,” Soriman said, then promptly took off.

“Well that’s odd, but back to Sally’s gut feelings…” Legate said, steering the conversation back towards his opinions.

“All this talk of guts is making mine grumble,” Lommy muttered.

Sally and Huin are on my radar,” Morsul said.

Huin! And Boro and Legate!” rose a whole chorus of voices.

“But who is the worst of them?” Lommy bemoaned.

Huin!” Lottie cried, “His death would bring us peace - and if not peace, then knowledge!” She grabbed a javelin and raised it in a mighty strike. As she threw it forward, a strong wind arose. As it rustled the pine branches, it almost sounded as if a distant voice called Sally! The sudden gust blew the javelin ever so slightly towards sally, but could not sway the heavy weapon from its path before it sunk deep into the center of Huin's chest. He gasped and collapsed forward onto the green grass.

Huin’s very human corpse lay unmoving in the earth as the wind died down and the sunset painted the waters of Tarn Aeluin crimson.


My grief is not that you were then too brave!
My grief is that you are bereft of hope here.

Blind Guardian is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Silmaril Day 3

Gorlim awoke to the sound of banging and the feeling of red hot iron. He hoped his nightmare had merely been a bad dream, but it had not. Standing over him were two gnarly Orcs holding glowing red daggers.

“Wakey, wakey eggs and bakey. ‘Sept you’re not getting any meat,” they sneered.

Gorlim tried to move away, but he had been tied down tight. “I’ve told you before: I don’t know what you want!”

Yes you do.

Gorlim turned his head towards the deep, booming voice. In the darkened corner were two fiery red eyes shrouded in liquid black shadow.

The Orcs cackled wildly. “The Master knows all!”

Tell me what I wish to know.

“I...I don’t know...know anything,” Gorlim’s eyes teared up. “Nothing!”

There is far worse evil than me. Do you wish to meet him?

The Orcs tapped the tips of their burning daggers into Gorlim’s skin making hundreds of tiny little cuts and some larger ones too, for good measure.

“Alright I’ll tell you!” he shrieked. “I saw her leaving one night; the Ranger! She got on her stead and rode away on one of her father’s missions!”

"Please, I beg of you, cease this torture!" Gorlim begged.

Very well. Sauron said. Kill him.

----****----

No one paid the carrion any mind. Normally, they would be perfectly welcome to land in trees and eat leftover scraps of meat. However, this bird carried a note tied to its leg. Eventually, it landed on the arm of one of the outlaws. A very human looking outlaw that hid a furry, evil secret. The outlaw untied the note and the carrion bird flew off.

Upon untying it the note merely said, “++Lottie”.

----****----

As the outlaws arose at dawn, they were immediately thrust into a frenzied chaos. Nine had gone to sleep, but only eight woke up. First, they found Lottie, their poor hard working Ranger, dead in her bed still clad in her riding gear. Then as they went to the edge of Tarn Aeluin to mourn, it seemed to them that they saw a form that came to them across the water, and it was a wraith of Gorlim. Despite his death, he felt guilty at his betrayal and wished to repent for his deeds. And he spoke to them in Form’s voice, yet his meaning was unclear, enshrouded in words they could not comprehend.

A reminder that no specific instructions may be given to the Ghost. He may post in full-sentence Tolkien quotes of 5 words or more. He may not vote. He may not read the Dead Thread toDay. He will return to the Dead at Nightfall. It was brought to my attention that the forum doesn’t actually allow you to post only quote boxes, it requires some “unquoted” text in the post; therefore, the Ghost will sign his posts with “Ghost” to allow it to go through.

Ok, first off what was that DL rush yesterday?

Secondly our Ranger is done that sucks.

Ok here’s the deal we Need to kill a wolf today or lose. They have 3 votes we have 5. I propose two plans. Both high risk high reward.

Now if there’s a ghost, and I assume there is based on Form’s appearance in the narration, and they may have extra information this may change the odds that I’ve laid out here by helping us choose correctly but I don’t think that information can override the three votes the wolves have. The second any innocent votes the wrong person they wolf pile and get to four votes and only the dead can save us.

So plan one:

we all vote the same person but we all have to agree. We win together or lose together. That gives us a 37% chance.


Plan two:

I anticipate a seer reveal and a counter reveal. Here’s the deal Seer and WolfSeer you Must vote in your reveal post. This will effectively neutralize one innocent vote and one wolf vote that gives us a 2-1 advantage on the remaining votes. If the seer has dreamed a wolf we have a 50/50 shot. Otherwise it’s a similar 37%

If a seer is worried about losing their vote they’re probably the wolf they won’t want to give up a third of their power.

So.

Unless someone else has a Brilliant plan these our choices. Discuss.

I assume that’s an opening “here to help.” The books don’t have a “You have my sword”

So I guess the question is how much information the ghost has. I wonder if yes or no questions work.

*Walks casually over to ghostForm* Sup dude man being dead must be a bummer but like do you have the name of a wolf?

*Sigh* I was hoping I would be targeted, but I understand why I wasn't. I let my Redrum vision get in the way and contributed to an innocent being lynched. I got caught up in thinking my words were being twisted. May Huey forgive me when all is said and done.

All I can say is if I'm lynched now we've lost, whether anyone believes it or not, well I hope they do. I will not go out quietly, if this is to be our end may we make such an end it's worthy of remembrance.

Top suspect is Legate. With that said...

Read this previous day and duly noted. I will have a hard look at sally AND Lommy today.

And since it appears a ghost-Form has come in our day of need, hopefully he can shed some light on something to aid us.

(As a RL note: My birthday is tomorrow and since I didn't get a chance to really celebrate last year...apparently a bunch of people are going all out and invited me to do a bunch of stuff throughout the day. So I'm going to have to vote early in the morning, likely 9-10 hours before the DL)

Edit: Crossed with Form and Morsul

So. No? I think. They weren’t able to narrow it down to a wolf. That would’ve been easy.

So maybe they have some innocent names instead.

Hey FormerForm hmm I wonder what the scope of questions is. Did you get a read on Sally?

Actually I’m probably being too narrow. They get info about “wolves and gifteds “ activities which is picked by wolves.

Uh anyway I stand my original post and plans but if someone is better at interrogation have at it.

I have to admit, this ghost role looks like it's going to be a blast. It's an interesting dynamic and hopefully if we don't muck things up there will be more chances for a ghost.

Umm...so far from what I've gathered (I really don't want to be Isildur cursed so I'm a bit wary)

The first quote, from Council of Elrond is a generic "Councils will be taken. Stay and listen because we will need your help from all friends"

The 2nd quote, from The Silm. Yavanna and Orome, speaks of the "Vision of Iluvatar" so messages that the ghosts picked up from ModGod55? But that information was "brief" and "taken away" so whatever little information they've picked up from G55?

Edit: Crossed with Morsul twice

To clarify, as there are so far no wolves on the DT, the information so far was not picked by wolves but merely by yours truly and BG. However, it will be picked by wolves when/if a wolf dies, in the sense that they will be given a choice of 2-3 infodrops of which they select the one to be posted on the DT to be known to the Inno-Dead.
