Lamb Chopped is lynched

Four votes in favour of lynching Lambiekins settles it. Unfortunately for you, Cosenza Beach's resident vampire was simply a Citizen.

LC, please post a suitable death scene.

Posting now in case of my imminent demise...

Six left. Assuming that nem, Banner Lady and I are all innocent, and there hasn't been some incredibly extravagant cover up, and also assuming that there are 2 'Ndrinu left alive it is now certain that they are 2 of Autenrieth Road, Rugmaker and CuppaT.

Presumably one citizen will die tonight, so it will be 2 vs 2. Or perhaps we will get lucky and there is still a mafioso around so there will some nasty mafia/'Ndrinu bloodletting tonight...

Very neat assessment, Leonato. Unfortunately, it rests on one key assumption that the rest of us can't make - that you are innocent! We know that BL and Nem are innocent, but there is no such evidence concerning you. The more you make statements like this trying to urge people into lynching innocent citizens like me, the more convinced I become of your own guilt!

Izzybee stated that she was certain of BLs innocence shortly before being murdered herself and being revealed to be the detective. So we are working on the basis that Izzybee had used her detective's powers to ascertain BL's innocence.

So to reassess Leonato's ver so slightly biased assessment, we know that Nem is innocent, and we think that BL is innocent. I know that I am innocent, so from my perspective, the N'drunu are likely two from Leonato, CuppaT and Autenrieth Road.

I remain deeply suspicious of Leonato, and fairly suspicious of the other two. Both have had plenty to say and seem like possible candidates for mafia to me!

Of course, the next night victim could tell us something - like proving the fact that I'm inncoent if they get me! And I've just thought - I've made it clear that I think that Leonato is N'drunu. The obvious retaliation will be for him to now take me out, but I think he's more clever than that, because killing me would make his guilt clear! I'll sleep with one eye open tonight.

Indeed we can all say we think that ourselves, nem and Banner lady are innocent. I would say that the evidence that I am not 'Ndrinu is fairly strong - I remain the only person who has named someone as 'Ndrinu and been proved correct, I also have not voted to lynch innocent citizens like Linguo an Lambchoppped.

The problem is the assumption that Banner Lady is innocent, we are all assuming that when Izzybee said she was convinced of her innocence she was doing so with her detective hat on and not as a casual remark.

Poor lambchopped, too many innocent folk die in this game, stupid gang culture! Sorry I wasn't here to register a vote,although I think my last post was actually the right time to vote...

I'm shocked that since you've known I'm innocent I haven't been killed off! I seem such an obvious target, or could these be my famous last words?

Due to Izzybee's comments I think we can assume BL to be innocent.

Mason Murdered: Mafia Missing?

Last night, a known Mason was killed by the city's notorious gangsters. Nem was murdered at an unknown time between midnight and dawn, by a person or persons unknown. This may be a continuation of the attacks on Masons seen earlier this week. However, compared with many nights recently which have seen double murders, last night was relatively quiet. Has one gang finally driven the other out of town?

Day breaks

Nominations will be valid once Lamb Chopped and nem have both posted death scenes.

Rats! says Lambiekins, back at the Pearly Gates again. Who would have thought someone would bring a stake to a necktie party?

Ah, well, she thinks. St. Peter turned me away last time, but I'll try our Lord himself this round. After all, he has a fondness for low company. And he knows what it's like to be unjustly done in.

Lord? Oh, Lord?

Would you mind if I asked for a taste of the Blood of the Lamb?

nem sat down to organise the next mason meeting for which she only had to make sure that she herself could attend, when her thoughts turned to her fellow mason members; how she missed them. It had been so tought to carry on without them. As she turned to put away her membership atire she felt somewhat strange. Maybe she wasn't as alone as she thought.

Suddenly the lights dimmed adn she coudln't make out what was around her. "hello? anyone there?"

"not anymore" was the reply


Nem, the final mason left standing, was no more.

Right, this has got to stop. I'm certain that Leonato is guilty, but people don't seem to want to vote for him. So instead we'll go for his partner. Someone who has had plenty to say for herself but still managed to keep out of the limelight somehow. The games's up.

I nominate Autenrieth Road.

Here I was, working on a long reasoned explanation of who I think is guilty, and in pops Rugmaker from his window of violin cases to toss this at me.

So, in order to make my position clear, let me say this briefly.

I have finally been convinced by Leonato's arguments against you -- among other things, I see I was wrong to waver from my initial hunch that caused me to nominate you back a few. I nominate Rugmaker.

Well, bang goes my theory that Rugmaker and Autenrieth Road were the two 'Ndrinu. One of them must be guilty, the question is which one?

By my logic I am innocent, and so is Banner Lady, and one of the two nominees so far is, which means there is almost certainly one more guilty 'Ndrinu, who must be...

I nominate CuppaT

Ahem. Autumn began. I have done nothing wrong. Except try to figure out who is who. And vote them off. It's too bad I got carried along by others' reasoning and voted for the innocent Linguo and Lamb Chopped. Early on it was hard to say who was anything, so I am sorry about Zorro but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Autumn decided to add Steak Tartare to the Zorro & Linguo Cooking School curriculum, in memory of Lamb Chopped. Then she got in her Jag and drove off to the animal shelter where she adopted a cat that had been found abandoned in a 12th floor apartment where a dreadful murder had taken place several nights ago. Then she took it to the beach to teach it to hunt for shrimp.

Damn. Can you say that when you are not in Hell? No other word is good enough in this case. I did not want to talk at night much with them still making decisions and reading what we say. But nem said it herself, and it was fairly obvious strategy on their part to kill her. They are leaving the rest of us fools to kill each other off.


That’s as far as I got in writing this morning when I saw that nem had been killed. Now Mrs. Cuppy has tucked the smallest of the children into bed and finds that she herself has been nominated to be lynched. It stands to reason, and I am the only one who has not had a turn yet. I suppose that says something about what you all have intuited all along. So, here are the three nominations, and I think we all know by now that we are three citizens against two ‘Ndrdmms. The defenses begin, and we who are innocent have to think, while the other two laugh. Not an enviable position.

In my actions last round, I will say that I am sorry that I said things against Lambchopped, who really was upright after all. Why she portrayed herself as evil from the start, I do not know. I guess it was fun, but it sure looked suspicious.

Regarding my nomination this round, I can only encourage the citizens to skim the thread from the beginning. I have not said or done anything that would be nefarious, although I suppose all of us voted for people who turned out to be fellow citizens. I really was not a very forthright poster until there were few of us left. Usually what I was thinking was said quicker by someone else.

Then, of course, there is the matter of the 13 children who would be left motherless. (See the earlier Mafia game. Someone said I had 12, and then I adopted a foundling on my doorstep just before a person was killed.) I admit the older children are quite capable, but everyone needs a mother. And poor Mr. Cuppy. We are aiming for a couple dozen. Secretly, I suspect he is hoping menopause hits soon.

Once again, we must be very careful. This may be the last round of a tricky game, unless I am seeing it wrong. All three of us must vote for the same person, and that person must be one of thugs. If we lynch him or her, then we have another chance, even though one of us will get killed in the night. But if a citizen gets lynched, the game will end in a tie of numbers and the ‘Ndurms will have won. Why those Mafias dropped out is another thing I don’t understand, except that the game is rather consuming.

Dorothy sat in the library, surrounded by a pile of cookery books, scribbling furiously. Her landlady (and now employer) had requested a meeting to talk about the cooking school curriculum and building menus for its first term.

Dorothy was troubled - not just by the coming meeting, but with the news she was required to vote again. It seemed like a cruel jinx that everyone she voted for in the past was innocent, and all her employers had came to a not very pleasant end. 'But then,' thought Dorothy brightly as she underscored DELICIOUSLY DEADLY DESSERTS with her glitter pen, 'there is always the hope of third time lucky, isn't there?'

On the way to the voting booth Mrs. Cuppy saw Miss Dorothy. "Where is that fellow that unlocks these doors?" she asked. "Isn't this the proper time? I do get so mixed up."

Dorothy politely held the door open, but once inside, Mrs. Cuppy stepped aside. "No, no, dear, after you. I insist."

Dorothy's sparkly red pen is poised over the voting paper. Who will she vote for? Any of them could be 'ndrinu. She could vote for her employer, but then she would have to look for work again soon; She could vote for Mrs Cuppy; but her gourmet chocolates were rather good, and she was hoping to get her over to teach a class at the new cooking school.

Dorothy therefore votes for Rugmaker with absolutely no confidence at all she has got it right this time either. She sighs, and passes the pen to Mrs Cuppy.

Very sick. Sorry so long. I think you have it wrong, but there is no choice but to make all the votes go in one direction since there is no certainty.
A whole lot is riding on whether BL is really innocent.

Well, as I see it now either CuppaT is 'Ndrinu and Rugmaker is innocent or Autenrieth Road is in league with Rugmaker.

I suspect it can't stop Rugmaker from being lynched, but I vote for Autenrieth Road.

Izzy shook her head as she learned of the latest murders. At least while she had been sick she had gotten to know Banner Lady a little better, and was now convinced of her innocence.

Well our local detective did say this some time before she was murdered. I think she would only have said that if she was really convinced, thanks to her detective skills, that Banner Lady is innocent. So why are CuppaT and Autenrieth Road suggesting that Banner Lady is guilty?

Autumn sat in the red glittery lobby of the Zorro & Linguo Memorial Cooking School, tapping her foot and waiting for her manager to arrive. Dorothy had promised to bring several menus; Autumn was impressed by the culinary knowledge Dorothy had displayed so far. It was greater than her own, at least!

She looked at her watch again. Where
was Dorothy?

She went back to considering all the possibilities of who was in it with whom. Maybe there was only 1 'Ndrinu left? Or an 'Ndrinu and a strangely inactive Mafia? Or could everyone else be in it but her? She was getting increasingly nervous as the voting patterns became increasingly bizarre.

I should add that as there are only four of you left - Autenrieth Road, CuppaT, Leonato, and Rugmaker - only two nominations will be allowed.

Dorothy made her way home from the voting booth trying not to think about anything other than presenting her coursework plan well. It was going to be hard to eschew her favourite hometown kind of food in favour of more fancy stuff; and she really didn't know how long she could fake an interest in managing a cooking school anyway. She was as prepared as she could be, and had already packed her basket ready for the meeting with AR.

She smiled sweetly as she rounded the corner, but her cheery 'Hello' was followed by a gasp as the projectile entered her heart. She staggered and put out a hand against the wall. This couldn't be happening! As her life blood flowed down her white dress she struggled to tap her red shoes together: once; twice...Dorothy slid slowly down the wall, her basket of plans scattered across the pavement. Her last conscious thought as a welcoming light whirled and grew brighter in her mind was
"Oh, am I back in Kansas, now?"

Dorothy, sweet innocent and not-very-clever citizen was dead. She would be found later lying on the pavement outside Ezio's bar with a red glitter pen impaled in her chest.

Ok Leonato, the game's up. Enough of your deceptions and pointing the finger at others, we know it's you now.

Rugmaker nominates

Waiting to think of something witty to put here.

Way too obvious, turning that vendetta around, Mr. Manufacturer-of-Floor-Coverings.

I nominate CuppaT.

My defence was made before -- nothing more to add. Rugmaker is the only one I am fairly sure is innocent. If it turns out to be him, you'll hear my Argh all the way across the pond.

I'm rather glad now that the Kipper has said we will not have another round of this until next year! Whew.

Interesting nomination there Rugmaker, given that I voted to save you last time. Just, in fact as I voted to save Linguo, who was innocent, and refused to vote to lynch Lambchopped, also innocent of course. In fact I'm the only person left who hasn't recently voted to lynch the innocent. Everything else you already know. I'm still the only person to have correctly identified an 'Ndrinu.

I'm innocent. I was wrong not to vote for Rugmaker last time, I apologise to my fellow remaining citizen.

My defence rests.

Mrs. Cuppy, have you rested your defence as well?

Autumn was itching with suspense... She walked through town, pausing to admire the viola cases decorating Rugmaker's window ("Fine floorcoverings, an instrument of luxury") before stopping in at Mrs. Cuppy's Cup'o'Tea Chocolate Café, Comestibles Canteen, and Coffee Cafeteria. (It was a free-standing building, but Autumn didn't want to trespass to walk around the back & see what was written on the fourth side.)

[ETA: she would have stopped by Leonato's as well, but she couldn't remember what he does. An artist perhaps, painting paintings as engimatic as the Mona Lisa?]

I have. Let the voting begin (without Teufelchen, since he said before that we could).
One, two, three, Go.
