    WatfordTalk was lying on his back looking at the moon above. It was not yet full, but it wasn’t far off he thought to himself. WatfordTalk loved looking at the stars, often pontificating on the vastness of space. In his youth he had wanted to be an astronomer, but with no financial means he had ended up in the Royal Navy. It wasn’t a bad life he mused, despite the current situation. He had seen the world after all, and how many young lads from Cassiobury could say that.

    ‘What a beautiful night,’ he muttered. ‘Aye that it is!’ Came a gruff voice from next to him. WatfordTalk didn’t dare move. ‘You can see the Big Dipper particularly well tonight!’ said the voice. WatfordTalk’s voice quavered as he replied, ‘Yep right there next to the Bear huh!’ ‘I don’t know about you,’ came the voice again, ‘but I’ve always thought it looked more like a wolf!’ WatfordTalk rolled his head to the left and opened his mouth to scream, but the jaws of the wolve clamped shut around his head before he had even drawn breath. WatfordTalk was dead. WatfordTalk was GOOD.

    Burnsy roasted a small piece of wolf flesh over the fire on a stick. The meat smelled ghastly, but food is food he had reasoned to himself. He had gone down two notches on his belt since arriving on this ghastly island. The real trick was to pinch your nose and try and eat the meat as quickly as possible. He had already finished off the best part of an entire werewolf buttock and was starting on the other one.

    He hummed tunelessly to himself, as the meat slowly roasted. The other wolf had been drawn towards the smell of the roasting meat. It hated the smell, but it desperately wanted revenge for the loss of its kin. It snuck up behind Burnsy and drove a clawed fist through his chest. Burnsy looked down astonished as he saw his own heart appear outside his chest and slumped backwards. As the blood stopped pumping to his brain, Burnsy starred astonished at the wolf above. The wolf looked down, ‘That was for Skyla!’ He then proceeded to stick Burnsy’s heart on a length of wood and roast it over the dying embers. Burnsy was dead. Burnsy was GOOD.

    The guardian protected With A Smile and saw nothing.

    RIP Burnsy and WT.

    The seer needs to view one of Diamond or Tom today. Diamond tried taking the heat off of Skyla yesterday and Tom hasn’t been a very helpful player at all - he’s just posting for the sake of posting hoping to go under the radar in my opinion.

    We need to get this right today.

    Aw crikey tough night team good. We need to really get this right today or its game over tomorrow.

    Very confusing set of kills.

    A wolf going for WT suggests one wolf thinks the non-pirate message yesterday was the wolf.

    The other wolf going for Burnsy yesterday could suggest the opposite.

    RIP WT & Burnsey plus thanks to the guardian

    At least now we know that SkylaRose was a wolf and there are only two remaining

    Didn't the non pirate message name Moog yesterday as good?
    I thought WT was named in the pirate message last week

    Preference is Tom for me. Diamond was being seen as a suspect for being in very close agreement to WatfordTalk, who we now know is good. So whilst he may still be a suspect, a little less so in my opinion.

    Of course that's if the seer is still alive. No way of knowing unless we get 2 messages.

    Diamond needs to be looked at, for avoidance of all doubt

    Absolute nonsense and morning all.

    Please don't fall into the classic trap of waiting for a vocal player to say something you think is wrong because that's what will eventually happen. All I did yetserday was to throw theories around and get the game talking.
    To not suspect Ashdon as a very experienced and ridiculously quiet player yesterday would be the mistake today.
     
  11. With A Smile

    I think anyone who is trying to influence the seer into viewing any other player is suspect

    There are easily 3 or 4 people the seer could view

    RIP WatfordTalk & Burnsy.

    What a great result last night with the lynching of Skyla. Her posting style had me extremely confused, which turned out to be a pretty effective ploy from the start to appear inexperienced and non-committal.

    Burnsy was named in a pirate themed message on Day 3, and WatfordTalk in one of the “Thank You” messages. Both were named as Good. Food for thought ahead of today’s messages.

    Morning all, I'll not be on for a few hours for work reasons but not trying to avoid detection. If anyone has time, could they post a list of players that the seer / wolf has viewed since day one and if those players are dead or alive. Will get my detective kit out ready for when I can help a bit more.

    Fair enough

    Does the theory that the messages which changed tact and claimed to be from a back up seer came from Skyla hold water?

    I'm being careful not to assume she was alpha but exploring the possibility.

    The Killing of WT seems to have been signposted in yesterday's thread by someone who said 'if diamond or WT die it suggests they were right about the pirate messages being from the wolf'

    Or words to that effect. I need to go back and see who wrote that.

    okay we view you today and if you are good we can view Ashdon tomorrow

    It was Tom and I didn't really like it myself. Hence my vote for him.

    My concern was, and still is, that he may know their theory is wrong and therefore if they died we'd start barking up the wrong tree thinking that they were onto something.

    Their theory could be right of course. But nonetheless he still named them and put them in the frame to be killed which is weird.
     
  18. TomWatfordFC

    TomWatfordFC Reservist

    That was me. My belief this morning is that WT was killed partially because of what I said, but not because WT was right, rather the wolf wanted us to think WT was right even though he likely isn't.
     
  19. wfcmoog

    wfcmoog Tinpot

    Yeah it seemed like either misdirection, or an invitation by a wolf who was signalling to his sibling.

    Tom's biggest defence seems to be his newness to the game, but it was certainly lynchworthy behaviour.
     
  20. miked2006

    miked2006 Premiership Prediction League Proprietor

    I’m not sure why a wolf would have killed WT though, if they were confused about the messages. Why not keep them alive and let them do evils bidding?
     
  21. Harrow Orn

    That was the annoying bit. Either he is new and it's innocent. Or he's being a cheeky fooker. I'm a bit torn on which.
     
  22. AshdonWFC

    Between that and Skyla's posting style, it wasn't the easiest call yesterday.

    I searched the thread for all of Tom's contributions yesterday, and they were pretty generic and vague.
     
  23. TomWatfordFC

    If anything it just creates confusion, which I can only imagine is what the wolves live and breathe for.

    My views on the message order haven't changed from day 2:

     
  25. wfcmoog

    wfcmoog Tinpot

    Well, it was your post which creates the confusion. Either the wolf profited from that, or you did, or your fellow wolf did.

    In any case, WT's blood is very much on your hands. Hope you're proud of yourself.

    At least yesterday's Skyla behaviour makes more sense now from a wolf novice perspective. Odd behaviour changes.

    Who are the other rookies again along with my good self to see if there is anything similar. If not surely it points to experienced two wolfs in a pack now?

    I think Tom and yourself are the only two that stand out to me in that list as players that I don't recall in prior games.

    I reckon whoever took out Watford Talk is an inexperienced wolf. It was a bad pick, given WT and Diamond would otherwise have received a lot more attention today.

    I'd say an experienced or very confident alpha, and an inexperienced beta (and an unknown traitor if they're still alive).

    Great news yesterday. I wish I could have been as successful with my view today.
    Today I viewed Diamond.
    He is GOOD.
    The previous seer viewed Cthulhu as GOOD, Cassetti’s Beard as EVIL, WatfordTalk as GOOD. Following “tabula rasa” I viewed Moog (GOOD) and now Diamond (GOOD).
    I hope to be more helpful tomorrow morning - 5658

    Yeap it was a bad pick.
    One experienced and one not so wolf left

    Unlikely to be the seer as it is unlikely CB was the tinker. If our pirate friend is still alive, will be interesting to see who they view.
