    As night fell the survivors settled down to rest in small groups around their campfires. Some spoke quietly to each other, whilst others lay still under their cloaks trying to sleep. Happyhornet24 lay staring at the stars, and slowly all around her the air was filled with the sounds of snoring survivors. Unable to sleep, Happy decided a quick stroll would probably help to tire her body and mind. She wandered down to the waters edge, dipping her toes in the cool water. She never heard the wolf sneaking up behind her, and never had a chance to utter so much as a whimper as it sunk its jaws into her neck crushing her windpipe and snapping her neck like a twig. The wolf pulled her corpse by the neck along the beach and settled down for a nice midnight snack. HappyHornet24 was GOOD.

    A few hours later Otter awoke in a rather jolly mood. He chuckled to himself as he remembered Hornpete’s last moments. He had never liked that snivelling little wretch. Feeling the need to relieve himself Otter stumpled over towards the trees lining the beach. He pulled down his breeches and grunted with satisfaction as he began to urinate. A sudden snapping of a twig made him spin around, trousers still down around his ankles. ‘Who’s there?’ he whispered into the darkness. A dark shape leapt at him from the darkness, throwing him backwards. A tremendous weight landed on Otter’s chest, so he only managed to utter a whispered ‘Wait…’ before the wind was knocked from his body. The red eyes of the wolf stared down at Otter for a second before a clawed paw rammed downwards into Otters chest and pulled his heart clean out. The wolf liked hearts, so damn tasty. He took a deep bite, but spat the offal out in disgust. It tasted terrible. OTTER WAS EVIL.

    Horace Goes Up North woke just before sunrise and decided to get an early start on proceedings. First things first he wanted to move Hornpetes body away from the camp. He stretched as he made his way over to the bell, but looking down suddenly stopped. All that remained was a single arm. He looked around confused, and a little way off he could see a foot protruding through a bush. Walking over he cautiously bent down and tugged on the foot. It didn’t budge. He pulled harder. No joy. Opening the fronds of the large plant he peeked inside. A monstrous wolf was gorging itself on the body. Horace tried to scream but no sound came out. The wolf looked at him curiously, shrugged and then bodily pulled Horace into the bush sinking its teeth into his neck. Horace was dead. HORACE WAS GOOD.

    One survivor sat up all night, staring into the darkness. Vigilant. Nearby lay Cthulhu, who enjoyed a good nights sleep.

    RIP Happy and Horace, three wolves in play and possibly the traitor eaten. It's a start.

    Not sure what Happy and Horace did to upset the wolves, RIP both

    Happy and Otter are experienced players so I can see why they may have been killed. Don't think Horace played so much so I'm gonna look back at his messages when I get some time. See if he pointed the finger at anyone.

    Well that's a bit of a result then - some friendly fire from Team Evil!! Surely Otter was the Traitor, given how that has been written up?

    It's going to be worth digging back into day 1 to have a look at what put Horace and Happy on the hit list, but it could be as basic as experience.

    Fingers crossed for earlier messages than yesterday!

    Good result that, them taking out the traitor or some other unspecified evil villager role.

    Going to look back through Otter's posts to see how he played yesterday.

    3 wolves or 2 now? Could Otter have killed HH before being eaten?

    That's what "it tasted terrible" leads me towards.

    Otter didn't post too many yesterday. From what I can see his two main posts are numbers 95 and 202
    #95 he tells Tom to refer to Moog for Liquids of any kind
    #202 he replies to Harrow and says "Yes, I am on your side of thinking"

    if he was the traitor both of these could easily be messages to link wolves or to let one wolf know that he was on their side.

    Until the seer decides who they are going to view, its going to be a bit of a waiting game

    Also 'a few hours later' ie. Otter had time to kill, eat and then sleep a bit.

    Good result with an evil player being taken out. I'm inclined to say Otter was the Traitor.

    How many elipses did he use?

    He also liked a post from Moog that said the following -

    Best I can offer is a 20ml shot of dark, syrupy stuff.

    He wasn't involved in that conversation so seems a bit random.

    If we assume he's the traitor then he's liked a post of Moog's, directed Tom towards Moog and said he's on Harrow's side in a very weirdly phrased way of saying he agreed.

    Seer should view Harrow.

    Moog and Tom in the frame.

    To be fair, terrible luck for Team Evil that the traitor got munched on night one. But those little things were subtle enough that we wouldn't have picked up on them otherwise.
     
  17. Steve Leo Beleck

    Steve Leo Beleck Squad Player

    Do you agree the Seer should view Harrow? Otter would not write "Yes, I am on your side of thinking" for any other reason. He'd just say "Yes, I agree"

    Doubt there's too much said by Otter or HH24 to point any fingers, like @Harrow Orn said, both experienced players so a good chance we have an experienced wolf/wolves on our hand.

    Well, just looked and he made very similar posts to Harrow and Ashdon, aligning himself with them, but quoting quite bland posts.

    Given a lot of what was said, and given how rarely he posted, they seem like strange posts to come out and agree with so strongly and with that wording.

    I feel alive! What a result, evil on evil kill overnight.
    Otters posts from yesterday will need to be studied, but I hardly remember a thing he said so typical bland under the radar stuff I expect.
     
  24. Steve Leo Beleck

    Steve Leo Beleck Squad Player

    He literally said "I am on your side of thinking" to Harrow.

    No-one would phrase it that way if they were just agreeing.

    You should have thrown Harrow under the bus, your attempts to downplay that make you look much more suspicious...

    But let's play along, who would you say the Seer should view and why? Need to come up with something good to stop Harrow getting viewed!
     
  25. wfcmoog

    Yes but he liked my joke about pee.

    Pee, is urine.

    Urine trouble.

    You are the wolf!

    He also said "I'm with you on this" to Ashdon.

    If Otter is the traitor then that could well be his attempts to show he's with team evil.

    Edit: Just seen that Moog has said the same.

    Seer, consider Harrow or Ashdon.

    You literally misunderstood my post entirely.

    If he was the traitor, for him to make so few posts, but to, in 2 of them, use tw similar phrases like 'I'm with you' in post 294 to Ashdon, as well as the one to Harrow, could have been eager reaching out to two wolves.

    Pretty clumsy if so, however it would have gone unnoticed by us if he hadn't been killed.

    I think Otter is a quite experienced player, so it's also quite likely he was sewing some confusion throughout.

    As for who the seer should view, selfishly, me.
     
  28. Steve Leo Beleck

    Steve Leo Beleck Squad Player

    Sure but 'I'm with you on this...' is a common way of agreeing. Fine, put Ashdown in the frame too but the very weird wording around the response to Harrow surely means that he's number one for a view?

    Morning all. Savage attacks last night, RIP to HH & H. Going to be very careful with my use of dots today.

    Will have a read through later to see if I can spot anything.

    Enjoying the game so far though.

    You're very quick off the mark today and considering you almost got lynched yesterday I'd like the Seer to view you, you sound like a panicky wolf!
     
  31. Harrow Orn

    Harrow Orn Squad Player

    I don't mind being viewed as long as I'm not the tinker.

    My only read now is that Otter could see me going down a wrong train of thought and was just encouraging me to go along with it.
     
  32. wfcmoog

    wfcmoog Tinpot

    If I was the wolf, 1. I wouldn't know any more than you do about Harrow being good or bad.
    2. I would happily throw him under the bus to survive.
    3. I do think he and Ashdon are in the frame based on what little we can glean from what we know at this point
    4. I don't see why you are so eager to defend Ashdon

    Make of this what you will.
     
  33. Steve Leo Beleck

    Steve Leo Beleck Squad Player

    I'm not, stick Ashdon in the frame too. But surely we're not going to ignore the fact that someone we think is the traitor said 'I am on your side' to someone?

    Otter, Moog and Happy were the three on my radar (Moog and Happy always make me suspicious due to the way they play), so very strange but useful 2/3 were killed.

    Otter played the classic keep quiet and say nothing valuable, that really stood out as in previous games he has been very analytical.

    If he's the traitor, we could try to view one of the people he went after. We shouldn't discount that he could be the wolf, as his gameplay was more typical of a wolf.

    Nobody, literally nobody is ignoring that. Nobody.
