Question

A serial killer has been stalking Boston. He's become somewhat of a legend. So much so that he has inspired a copy-cat killer who has now begun killing on his own. The Master is just about to begin his bold plan involving the deaths of 12 people. All the murders are done someplace else and then brought to a specific location. The master follows a set of rules though: one of which is that no innocent people will die by his hands unless he feels he must do it to survive. The copycat tries to follow the same rule, but his personal discipline is not so great, so he'll attack innocents much sooner than the master would. The copycat also has a scheme in mind, but must be caught first because the master will easily make all the evidence from his crime scenes fit the description of the copy-cat because he knows who the copy-cat is. The trick is, both killers are on the police force!

Roles:

The Zodiac Zealot - will kill an out-of-game villain each night unless he feels threatened. needs to bring down the copy-cat and stay out of harm's way. If he kills 12 people, he wins, otherwise he wins if he kills every other member of the police force. Knows who the Copy-Cat is.

The Copy-Cat (who loves the movie Se7en) - will kill an out-of-game villain each night unless he feels threatened. If he lasts over 7 Nights, he wins, otherwise he wins if kills every other member of the police force

Lieutenant Stark- will find two very credible pieces of evidence each night with 75% accuracy each (weapon, place of murder, habit, accessories, vehicle randomly)

Detective Smith - can get a witness to speak with 50% credibility each night or can protect someone (weapon, hair, eyes, body-type randomly)

Detective Jones - can get a witness to speak with 50% credibility each night or can protect someone (weapon, hair, eyes, body-type randomly)

Undercover Agent Johnson - gets one 100% pure piece of evidence each night (all possible evidence randomly)

Undercover Agent Harrison - gets one 100% pure piece of evidence each night (all possible evidence randomly)

Forensics Investigator Adams - gets two 50% credible pieces of evidence a night (blood-type, accessories, hair randomly)

Forensics Investigator Williams - gets two 50% credible pieces of evidence a night (blood-type, accessories, hair randomly)

FBI Criminal Expert Mason - gets one 100% piece of evidence one night and can protect someone as well (all possible evidence randomly)

Psychologist Reynolds - can examine one person each day to see if they have criminal tendencies with 50% chance of them leaking some random info (habit, vehicle, place of murder randomly)

Chief Somerset - can look at the big picture each day's vote and ask for the authenticity of two people's voting.

Evidence will be presented by each officer each day and will be for 10 items. (You may opt to put in 0-10 of the items) The evidence is (blood-type, weapon, place of murder, hair color, eye color, body-type, accessories worn, habit (smoking, drinking, etc...), and vehicle used)

The two killers will be chosen randomly from the group of 10 officers and will still be doing their jobs. They will be given 10 pieces of evidence that suits them in addition to their roles. The evidence the cops collect will all point to the copy-cat until the copy-cat is brought down. If 5 out of 10 pieces of evidence, by majority, point toward the copy-cat, his house will be raided that Night and he will feel threatened. He will not be found, but then he will get sloppy and all his percentages shoot up to 100%, but he will now be forced to kill police officers instead of out-of-game villains. He can only RID kill them though and only if they are not protected. If the RID fails, he will kill an out-of-game character like before. The copy-cat will be brought to justice if 8-10 pieces of evidence fit his description.

The real Boston Butcher will then be left. And the process will be similar. His plan involves killing 12 people and then he wins and gets away. If the evidence points towards him 6-10, his house will get raided and he will step up his game and kill an officer each night with RID (if un-protected) and an out-of-game character. If the RID fails, he only kills the one out-of game character like before. Because he is rushing things though, his chances of leaving 100% credible evidence behind jumps to 100%. He will be brought down with a flawless 10-10 evidence majority.

In my posts, you will know what type of evidence each officer uncovers, but only they will know what exactly it was and keep in mind the percentage of accuracy at any given time. Also, you will know who's house got raided if that ever happens. Anytime a player dies, their role is revealed. By rule, the game cannot exceed 12 Nights. There will be no Night Actions. Everything will be done on a 24 hour cycle. There will be no need for protection the first Night obviously. No protective role can protect themselves. From then on, any actions like protect or RID kill will be sent to me during the day and will happen the next night.

1) Joe's Student

2) Peace -found the CC has blood type B

3) dawh - found the CC whistles

4) DMS found the CC uses knife

5) A. Person - found the CC wears a ring and has grey hair

6) Twin Pop found the CC uses a black car

7) Lemonymelon

8) FIF

9) reaymanator found the CC uses chewing gum and has a hat

10)mekal Found the Killer likes to hang out in the garage

I have a question about how the majority is determined.

Since blood-type B is the only blood type listed, that is the blood-type majority, right? But since whistles and chews gum each have one vote, does that mean that there will be no majority on the habit? :unsure:

correct. Like I said people can post 0-10 items. Everyone chose to post barely anything, so Day 1 is kind of a wash in terms of majority and evidence.

It's looking to me like Forensic Investigator Adams is the copy cat killer. He drives a black car, hangs out in the garage, chews gum, uses a knife, and has a ring.

He does not have blood type B, whistle, have grey hair or have a hat.

Peace is 100% wrong

Dawh is 100% wrong

DMS is 100% right

Twin Pop is 100% right

Mekal is 100% right

Joe's Student is 100% right

A Person is 50% right

Reaymanator is 50% right

If my assumptions are right (which they rarely are), then Peace and Dawh are the CC and the killer trying to throw us off the track. We will have to wait until tonight to find more evidence! Stay safe everyone!

Well the one thing is that My evidence is for the actually Killer and everyone else's is for the Copy cat.

Um, what are you saying? :huh:

Itachi said that until the Copy-Cat was caught, all evidence will point to the CC.

One thing that I would say to everyone is to beware of anyone who tries to tell you what to do or believe. Most people don't even get a guarantee that their info is accurate, so it's risky to make accusations at this point in the game.

I guess I'm taking over for FIF. Let me get my clues from Itachi, then I'll post what I know.

Thanks a lot for filling in CL! Now we just need to hear from Rene and we can get going. If anyone else is interested in playing, please let me know. Just post here.

OK, this is the final tally based on your evidence for Day 1's Investigation:

The Copy-Cat Killer has Blood-Type B, Uses a Knife, Hangs out in his garage, and has a black car. All other evidence is contradictory so far. Let's find this guy people!

Night 2 will be posted sometime tonight. Thanks for stepping in CL and Kat! ;)

So will the final voting tally carry over from day to day? By that I mean, if someone reported finding blood-type O and it was the only blood type presented, would that be part of Day 2's evidence, or would that simply erase the evidence from Day 1 since it's contradictory? :unsure:

Night 2: The Killers Strike Again

Crime Scene. 11.25.08 18:00 hours. Looks to be the Butcher's Copy Cat

Lt. Stark: OK everyone! Just what we expected. No mistakes!

The rain drizzled on a cold night in Boston. The Lieutenant stood watching over the crime scene with care, and uncaring about her clothes getting drenched. Her breath exhaled in a white mist that hung in the air. She watched it for a while and then focused on the forensics team gathering the body parts from the "present" they received. She was waiting for a call. Another murder she assumed. The Butcher wouldn't be outdone by this amateur. The Copy-Cat even used another storage facility. How unoriginal. Stark was surprised the Butcher hadn't killed this Copy-Cat yet, but then again. He was taking a lot of heat off.

Det. Smith: This one's gotta be the Copy Cat Lieutenant. We already have witnesses.

Mason: What's under the box Adams?

Adams: Get this: it says "Greed", written in the victim's blood like last time.

Williams: Woah, woah, who was this guy?

Lt. Stark: He was the former CEO of one of those huge Insurance Firms that got bailed out. He had an Eight Hundred Million dollar golden parachute. There must have been plenty of people who wanted him dead. These killers are going to become popular the way things are going...

Adams: I guess that parachute wasn't packed properly.

Det. Jones: Heheh. Nice. I'm sure he didn't expect to wind up in a box like that. That's for sure.

Williams: OK, guys, guys... I think I've got something. Have you ever seen that movie Se7en? (a round of yeses and noes) Well look. The killer in that movie went in this order too. If this guy really is a Copy-Cat, then maybe he's copying more than the Butcher.

Lt. Stark: So what came next in the movie?

Williams: It went Gluttony, Greed, ...Sloth (and it was a seedy drug dealer who hid in the shadows)

Mason: Hmph. Well that narrows it down. Good thinking, but preventing that one is going to be like preventing the winter in Boston. Not a snowball's chance in Hell.

*ring ring*

***

Crime Scene. 11.26.08 1:00. Definitely the work of the Butcher.

The group walked into the stadium. There had recently been a rodeo and the place still stank of those steer. And there it was. Another gift to Boston Homicide. A huge box all wrapped up with a bow on top and everything. When they opened it though, they found a new surprise. The left ear was missing as was always the case with the Butcher. But in it's place an Ox horn was somehow attached to the skull.

Lt. Stark: Oh my god. ...OK, I want everything about that horn checked out on the double! This may be our first clue that could lead us to the Butcher.

Adams (lifting the skull and placing into evidence) : I don't get it. What's he trying to say?

Williams (sealing the large bag) : I don't know bro. But this case keeps getting weirder and weirder.

***

At the end of the Night the following officers found:

Lt. Stark got a lead on the vehicle and an accessory associated with the killer

Det. Smith got the body-type from a witness

Det. Jones got the hair color from a witness

UA Johnson got a lead on the killer's hair color

UA Harrison got a lead on an accessory the killer may have

FI Adams found trace evidence of hair not belonging to the victim and a possible accessory for the killer

FI Williams found trace evidence of an accessory and a blood-type different from the victim

Mason got a good eye-witness account of the hair color of the killer

I think that itachi expects people to pad their votes by a lot to try to hide their identities from the killers, since the killers are aware of who they are, and they will be trying to prevent the rest of us from gathering enough evidence to find them.
