Question

Guest

"Using the power of Mana, a civilization had grown strong...

In time, Mana was used to create the ultimate weapon: the Mana Fortress...

This angered the gods. They sent their beasts to destroy the Fortress...

A violent war rocked the world, and Mana seemed to disappear...

Before all was lost, a hero with the Mana Sword smashed the Fortress...

Though the civilization had been destroyed, the world was peaceful again...

But time flows like a river...and history repeats..."

The capital of the Empire was Northtown, and so was the Resistance's base. The Resistance knew how to keep security tight...yet there was a back door in Southtown. Three figures made their way through this secret way, being given the password by Mara, a Resistance agent.

They were now surrounded by soldiers, and the leader was there.

"Here they are Krissie." said a soldier.

"Who're you? Imperial spies?"

The foremost of the three spoke up. "Hasn't Jema been here?"

"You know Jema? So you're the ones he's been talking about. Welcome to the Resistance!"

"My name's Randi." The boy replied.

A girl behind him spoke to Krissie. "You're the leader? A girl?"

The third newcomer, a sprite child of the Upperlands, broke in. "Jealous, Purim?"

"Knock it off Popoie. We need to hurry up and find Dyluck."

"Wait," said Krissie. "You know Dyluck?"

"Why?"

"He's been draining energy from people who go to the ruins in the east."

"That was happening in Pandora! Why would he...?"

"We'll check into it. Sounds like Thanatos' doing..."

>>>>>>>>>>

Jema stood guard at the entrance to Tasnica, pondering the events of the day. Something was different about the king. Some questions are going to be asked soon, but he was almost afraid of the answers they would bring.

>>>>>>>>>>

"Sheex has infiltrated Tasnica."

"Yes, Thanatos."

"...the Mana Knight is growing into an obstacle."

"Yes."

"Let us be rid of him. He is here in Northtown. He does not leave alive."

"Yes, sir." Thanatos' general turned to leave.

"Geshtar."

"Yes?"

"Do not fail me this time."

"I'm intent on revenge. He will slip past me no more."

>>>>>>>>>>

"Hey boss! What next?"

The Scorpion Army Boss looked at her two soldiers. "What next? We're going to take Kilroy and defeat the Emperor! Nothing can stop us when we get rid of him!"

>>>>>>>>>>

Northtown was filled with Resistance soldiers, Imperial spies, Mana heroes, dark villains. Thanatos smiled grimly from his spot by Emperor Vandole. Dyluck stood next to them, oblivious, fully in Thanatos' power.

It was only a matter of time

Heroes (WINCON: Eliminate the Bodyguard)

1. Randi: (Mana Knight) 1 RID kill per night

2. Purim: (Mana Pandoran) Uses mana to balloon target (block)

3. Popoie: (Mana Sprite) Uses mana to silence target (redirect)

@LJ - Please find a replacement for me. I'm sorry, but I do not feel able to continue.

@Bb - Please understand that statement as me not wishing to play with you anymore.

I understand, crystal clear araver. Though I'm not sure if that's because you have been outed or because you just don't want to defend yourself.

I'm not going to be silent because you do not want to defend against accusations (assuming that's what this is about?).

I'm going to stir things up and make people talk. If you don't want to defend that's fine, just out yourself and plead no contest.

For vote manipulator reasoning. I'm determined to learn something from D1 :D

This vote was perfect for reasoning :grumble: Would've narrowed down Geshtar pretty well.

Day 1: A Curious Happening.

The gathering had been bickering all morning in the town square, pointing fingers every which way. When they finally made a decision, the group all looked at Segul.

"Alright. It's got to be you."

"Me??? Boss! Whatta we do now???"

But he never got an answer as Sheex sneaked up behind him and planted a knife in the back of his neck. Segul fell lifeless at their feet, showing the scorpion tattoo where the knife had made contact.

>>>>>>>>>

As the group dispersed, one of them noticed Hirkala staring off into the sun. They walked forward and tilted his head forward so he wouldn't blind himself. Hirk took no notice.

Apparently Jema hadn't arrived from Tasnica...

Well that explains the compliment for the proposed alliance and also the indirect defense of Segul :duh: I guess that kinda squishes the proposed alliance...

At least take comfort that the Heroes are not going to kill you because we don't want to give the BGs more opportunity towards the majority :blush:

On the upside... as far as I can tell, the 3 BGs are among firno, Nick, slick, OT, Maurice, and woon. :thumbsup: 50/50 shot after D1. Not bad!

Hey guys! I just finished reading the thread. Very interesting first day. Before the next day rolls around, I'll probably reread everything just to try to get a better feel for everything - it's been a while since I've played mafia. Hopefully I won't make any giant blunders.

Let's hope we can find a second replacement

@Bb - Please take this as a personal message:

I think you misunderstood what I said when stating my reasons for leaving the game and you asked a question about that. So I need to elaborate as I do not want any misunderstanding to remain between us.

I had some problems irl + a rush of adrenaline/stress/frustration from another Mafia game recently and I don't wish to play anymore in this Mafia, because playing with you atm is very stressful - which I really cannot take at the moment. So instead of hurting my faction's chances to win by playing emotionally disturbed, I'm choosing not to play. This has nothing to do with my role, just with the levels of conversational stress I can handle right now. I'm sorry I'm not able to continue this game but this decision does not affect any other games we might play in the future (i.e. it's not an "I don't wanna play with you ever" kind of message)

This is colored as a ghost message since I was not replaced yet, but this will be my final post in this game.

Sorry to see you leaving this one, Araver.

Sorry I wasn't around last night. Things got pretty heated all around and we ended up lynching a friend.

I'm going to go send in my action...

I've thought long and hard about this decision, and I've decided to go through with it.

If there's another Indy out there who isn't Bb, I know you're the boss. Because I'm Boy #1.

I don't want Bb to hide under the cloak of indiness. And if you are the indy, Bb... *Shrug* I think it's a ruse. Why else would you ask us to not reveal ourselves? Our wincon is a hard one, but I do want to work with the goodies on this.

I think many of us knew that from N1... though apparently not Segul, but he probably wouldn't have realized it without experience.

Anyways, I thought I made it pretty clear through my behavior in my last post that I'm not an Indy. But now you have subjected yourself to an RID, as well as narrowing things down for the BGs (in case they didn't have you figured out already).

So now that both of the remaining two Indies are out in the open, does anyone else want to go ahead and out themselves?

Well crap. :duh:

Yes. It was pretty obvious N1, that's why I didn't feel so bad doing it. I was (and still am) hoping that someone else comes out as an Indy.

I'll wait.

EDIT:

Further, the RID is in the hands of the Goodies. We shouldn't have to fear them. If we don't work with them, the baddies will nail all of our coffins.

If Randi has a different idea, I'm sorry. But the Indy faction should not be a threat to the goodies at all.

Okay. I'm in the game. I've read everything up to this point, and for now, I'm willing to give BrandonB the benefit of the doubt, if only because if he's telling the truth, he's no threat, and if he's lying (which he probably is), I'd like to see how this turns out. BrandonB, I'm keeping an eye on you.

Anyway, Hirkala is pretty much a confirmed innocent or independent. Let's hope Jema can free him. Since it seems that Araver was acting suspiciously and people suspect him, I am going to try to clear my name. Whatever that may mean to you.

Night 2: Steel and Snare

Mara was up and wandering around late, peering around with suspicious eyes. No one noticed. No one cared. She was, after all, the town nut. Mara came across Hirkala, walking slowly in circles around the town square. He didn't notice as she studied his face carefully, and recognized his identity.

Krissie was also up late again. It was more unusual for her to be out at this time of night, but she knew how to go unnoticed. She was looking for the Darth Noob, but saw him nodding off in a park bench. Even if it was unusual, she could tell there was no need to fear for his safety.

>>>>>>>>

Geshtar's blood was hot. He was ready to kill and make up for his losses. He steered his mechcycle with the engine off, relying tonight on surprise. He saw a figure go by. Nick Fleming. Geshtar nodded in approval and raced out into the streets in full blast. He carried Nick's body, impaled on the front ram of his mech bike, to the castle. Thanatos would appreciate this.

Brandon was out for a midnight stroll. There was once a time where this was a safe thing to do, but these days were ones of war and danger. He was being stalked. Several minutes passed and Sheex knew who he was working with, and returned to the Emperor.

Brandon still wasn't alone. Thanatos wouldn't be at the castle to receive Geshtar's trophy at the moment.

"Brandon!"

Brandon wasn't prepared for the sight that would greet him when he turned around.

Anyone who saw them noticed the contrast as the two figures walked: one gilding, almost hovering, and the other one walking more like a robot.

Well, let's hope that Jema is still around. Random vote for now, as the people I would normally pressure are either dead or zombies.
