    After such a long string of murders, Esterport's citizens were surprised (and relieved) to discover all of their number present on this morning, without so much as a note from the Syssin General.

    Life proceeded as usual...

    There was an assassination attempt on the Knight, who was protected by the starburst tattoo!
    -----

    It is Day 6.

    The Syssin General is alive.
    There is 1 Syssin alive.
    The Knight is alive.
    The Psychic is alive.
    The Drunk is alive.
    There is 1 Citizen remaining.

    4 votes are needed to lynch.

    So, I waited as long as I could to see if Lehar had found the remaining unhidden Syssin, but I've got to head to the bed. Besides, he might be our Psychic, but I know basic math. Sibatti is the General. At this point, she has to be, unless I've understood something wrong.

    My logic: I have no special role. Lehar said way earlier he scanned her as a regular citizen. There is only 1 regular citizen left according to Emelle's latest report. So if I'm a regular citizen and there is only one of us left.. well, you guys see where I'm going with this.

    Now that I've pointed this out, she will be making the same claim of me, so it'll come down to you guys to make the winning pick for us all. It's checkmate; all we need to do is to lynch Sibatti and we've won. Lehar's investigations this night should be guaranteed to find the remaining Syssin the next night in time for the next lynch.

    Since the choice will be a lot harder for the rest of you, I'll put some points out here: we all know Sibatti is a great talker and leader, but despite this, she's hardly made a ripple during this entire thing. She had been acting almost drunk-like erratic until she was revealed as investigated, after which she became extremely average.
  • ValingarValingar Member Posts: 312 ✭✭✭
    I'll wait to the morning to vote, in case Lehar intentionally left out information about her (basically, if she is actually the Knight). But if not, we've got a sure win here.
  • LeharLehar farmMember Posts: 64 ✭✭✭
    Since the Knight has an attempt on their life last night and the Syssin know who it is now, I will come out and say it is Jami. I am indeed the real Psychic.

    Last night I investigated @Valingar and he turned up as a regular citizen.  Shouldn't we be focusing on the remaining regular Syssin instead of the general, though?
  • LeharLehar farmMember Posts: 64 ✭✭✭
    2. Lehar <-Psychic
    3. Karhast
    6. Sibatti <-Investigated as citizen
    12. Valingar<-Investigated as Citizen
    13. Ilyon
    14. Jami<-Knight

    Those are the people left and the available info so far. Which means Karhast or Ilyon is drunk while the other is Syssin. Does someone have a clue on who might be who? Unless I, too, am just misunderstanding something.
  • LeharLehar farmMember Posts: 64 ✭✭✭
    Upon doing further research and getting some info, it looks like the drunk shows up as a regular citizen. Hmm.
  • ValingarValingar Member Posts: 312 ✭✭✭
    Well, that's bad news. Assumed that if you recognized the Knight on your scans, you'd recognize the Drunk as well. Means there's no certain information again, except for Lehar and Jami being citizens, and that at least one of Karhast and Ilyon is Syssin.
  • JamiJami Member Posts: 31
    It's down to Ilyon and Karhast if we want to try to get the normal Syssin. Looking over the rounds as a whole, I'm inclined to think it's Ilyon

    Today, I came into this thread, and found two conflicting posts made here.
    Valingar said:


    My logic: I have no special role.

    Emelle said:


    It is Day 6.

    The Syssin General is alive.
    There is 1 Syssin alive.
    The Knight is alive.

    There is 1 Citizen remaining.

    4 votes are needed to lynch.

    Given that I'm our final remaining citizen, I feel very confident in saying that Valingar is the general, given that they've been acting much too sensibly to be the drunk. You could argue that this works in their favour, but then being sensible is very easy when you already know ahead of time just who is and isn't a citizen.

    So, please - don't buy Valingar's excuses. It's not even a matter of 'let's see if what he says makes sense' anymore. A mislynch here means certain, absolute death. I really hope him posting before I did hasn't primed everyone against me, either.

    .. Or he's the drunk, and Ilyon is the general.. I guess? But since I doubt the drunk would really lie in such a manner, I kind of doubt it.
  • SibattiSibatti Amidst vibrant flora and treesMember Posts: 190 ✭✭✭✭
    @Valingar is the General, @Ilyon is the remaining Syssin, and @Karhast is the drunk.

    VOTE: @Valingar
  • LeharLehar farmMember Posts: 64 ✭✭✭
    So Valingar says Sibatti is the General and this leads to both Karhast and Sibatti pointing out that Valingar is the general, with the latter calling Karhast the drunk to attempt to prevent us from lynching him.

    Any thoughts @Ilyon?
  • ValingarValingar Member Posts: 312 ✭✭✭
    Well, this is an uncomfortable if damnably clever tactic to deal with in my shoes, and for a bit it did leave me pretty lost on which roles you people actually have. So I certainly can't imagine it's easier for others. But I am the sole remaining citizen, so I've at least got the truth going for me.

    Since Emir died I've been convinced on Karhast's role as the Drunk, so this was a surprise twist. But Ilyon had managed to do a good job of getting himself in a position to be under vote, so I got no choice but to hope he is actually the Drunk and willing to work with the town.

    For the others: only one false lynch is needed for Syssin to win. No more second chances for us. If we mess up here, we're done for. Think carefully on why these two in particular started their train on me.

    Sibatti's case is obvious, considering I pointed her out earlier. Karhast's one is equally much so, if he's Syssin. If Sibatti, as the General, was lynched, the other Syssin would lose by default the next night, because there would be no more room to hide in. If Karhast was actually the Drunk, he would be looking to get himself lynched, not helping the Syssin to win.

    I suggest you ignore both them and me a moment and go through all that's been said from round one to now, then come back here. I feel they both have played erratic and counter-productive, and I'm hoping you guys see that as well. Vote for who you think is right, no hard feelings from me.
  • ValingarValingar Member Posts: 312 ✭✭✭
    Vote: Sibatti
  • IlyonIlyon Member Posts: 746 ✭✭✭
    Away for 3-4 hours, posting then.

  • IlyonIlyon Member Posts: 746 ✭✭✭
    Okay. First of all, I am going to go ahead and:

    ROLECLAIM: Drunk

    Had to think about this some, but at this point it looks like I have nothing to lose by claiming. Neither of the budding trains is focused on me, so my win-condition cannot happen, and with how things are looking, the game will be de-facto over after this day no matter what happens. As such, I may as well side with the town.

    As a side note, someone commented that my role was played poorly. I have been thinking about interesting ways to make myself suspicious enough to be lynched, but not suspicious enough for anyone to figure out my role, but couldn't think of anything - the only way would have been to stay silent, which is boring and in itself a telling sign (I'm always active in these), or avoid voting on syssin trains, but not knowing who the syssin are obviously makes this impossible.

    Anyway, here we are. Now, what to make of the others. With the way voting has been going, I'd say the chance of the mafia being Valingar + one of Karhast/Sibatti is effectively zero. The obvious conclusion, then, is that Karhast and Sibatti are our syssin, while Valingar is the last citizen.

    With that, it doesn't matter much which of the two I vote for first, so I'll follow the existing vote.

    VOTE: Sibatti

  • LeharLehar farmMember Posts: 64 ✭✭✭
    I had some thoughts about voting for @Ilyon since this is a make or break round anyways and leaving it to RNG would be fun if he is the drunk, but I've had suspicion on @Sibatti for a while and the way @Karhast came to her defense so quickly made it worse.

    Vote: Sibatti
  • KarhastKarhast EnorianMember Posts: 84 ✭✭✭
    Um, Lehar, can we agree about my line of thoughts here?

    Three people are left to investigate as citizens: the drunk, the general, and the last remaining citizen.

    I'm that citizen, even though Valingar is claiming to be such at length, and so investigating me will indeed turn me up to be citizen.

    You've investigated Sibatti and Valingar both - clearly, among the three of us, there's one drunk, one citizen, one general. I'm still the citizen, but them's the breaks.

    Ilyon and I both aren't investigated. Either one of us, to you, is the remaining vanilla Syssin. It's not me, so..

    Vote: Ilyon

    Because I'm at least going to lose this game voting for the right person

    Let's see how it goeshould, I'm not optimistic but who knows
    VOTE:SIBATTI
  • EmelleEmelle the Seer Seer's WoodMember Posts: 711 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Recap:
    Sibatti voted for Valingar
    Valingar voted for Sibatti
    Ilyon voted for Sibatti
    Lehar voted for Sibatti
    Karhast voted for Ilyon
    Jami voted for Sibatti


    Valingar (1): Sibatti
    Sibatti (4): Valingar, Ilyon, Lehar, Jami
    Ilyon (1): Karhast

    For most of the duration of this strange series of events, Sibatti had remained quiet and mostly escaped the town's notice. With so few citizens remaining, she now became an object of speculation.

    "She must be the General. All this time, she's been manipulating the Syssin from phase!"

    "Unlikely. There are others whose behavior is more concerning; she's probably just a citizen."

    No one considered the more unlikely scenario: She's just been passed out all this time.

    @Sibatti has been lynched. She was the Drunk!

    Devastated by this revelation, Lehar blamed herself for the shortcoming of her gifts. When she could no longer withstand the guilt, she took to the gallows herself.

    @Lehar has committed suicide. She was the Psychic.

    -----

    It is Night 6.

    The Syssin General is alive.
    There is 1 Syssin alive.
    The Knight is alive.
    There is 1 Citizen remaining.

    Night roles, please PM me your actions!
    Sibatti
  • IlyonIlyon Member Posts: 746 ✭✭✭
    Heh, such luck. We were sure that Karhast was the drunk, but alas, Lehar now got the rng outcome that we was so tempted about.

    Congrats to the Syssin, then. There is nothing left to do.

    To no one's surprise, the Syssin took out the now-unprotected Knight. They didn't even bother to leave a note, this time.

    @Jami has been assassinated. She was the Knight!

    Good game, folks, was fun!

    This end was a roll of the dice, fifty-fifty chance either of the remaining Syssin would have died to Sibatti's guilt trip and lost instead. But I'll take it! I don't think I'm cut out for extended Syssinhood, however, constant bluffing is stressful.

    Thanks to @Emelle for hosting this, with how many people took part, it must've been effortful. Beautiful thematic writing, too.

    This game was fun but rough! Not being able to PM people is an interesting divergence to the regular games.

    I am just glad we only had one round where we had a no lynch occur, as it felt like pulling teeth at points to get people to post! 

    Thanks for the host, @Emelle!
