    That night clouds covered the sky, and there was very little moonlight at all. The wolf made his way to Otters house. The smell of blood here was strong in the air, and the wolf licked his lips. His long dog like tongue hung from his mouth and he sped up towards the delicious smells that were tantalising his senses. Reaching the house he could not contain himself, and he barged through the doorway.

    The door was smashed off its hinges and lay in bits on the floor. Otter looked up from his work, butchered animal carcasses lay all around him. In one hand he held a large butchers knife, dripping in blood. He smiled creepily at the wolf, ‘Hello, there my little friend…..welcome….to the party!’ The wolf grimaced, there was something odd about this human. He paused. Otter seizing the advantage charged forwards wielding his butchers knife, slashing up at the wolfs neck. The wolf reacted lurching backwards and the blade just feel short of his throat. He ducked under Otters next strike and slammed a clawed fist into otters stomach. Otter flew back against the opposite wall, catching a meat hook on the way.

    Otter struggled, his shoulder impaled on the hook. The wolf laughed, ‘tough luck Otter!’ With that he swiped at the butchers head taking it clean off.

    Otter was Good.

    Across the village the other wolf stalked its prey up the street. Moog was staggering from side to side, singing and hiccupping. ‘The visions….the visions…’ he muttered to himself. ‘I must find the truth!’ He staggered past the ruins of The Admiral Amrabat, still smoking gently. ‘My poor friend, they know not what they do,’ he cried.

    ‘Hello there Moog!’ announced the wolf. Moog turned slowly. ‘You,’ he said. ‘I would have got there given more time you know.’ ‘I know Old Friend, I know, ’ whispered the wolf.

    He took no pride in this kill, but he knew it must be done. He strolled forward and took hold of Moog by the neck. Moog was praying silently under his breath, as he held him it looked as though his spirit left his body. Surprised the wolfs grip tightened around his neck, and crack! Moog's body went limp.

    Moog was dead. Moog was very good.

    Across the village, the guardian sat watch outside HornetGags house.

    Morning villagers. Let's take a moment to reflect on the good villagers we've lost. Those who were suspecting Moog just because he's experienced please take note.

    Memorial service at 11am.

    Then the wake in the Admiral...it's what the Moog would have wanted.

    So Moog was the Seer?

    That would be my take on Opti's message.

    We do get a backup seer, right?

    Morning. So we've lost two more good, experienced players one of whom it seems was the Seer. Not a good day for team good. Hopefully we can go by something more substantial today.
    I'm sticking by my theory (helped by Otter RIP) that the traitor could still be in our midst so day 1 voting patterns could be relevant.

    So the Guardian saved me and I think I know who it is.
  9. HappyHornet24

    I think, if memory serves correct, that we get another seer. 352, can you confirm this is right?

    We did in previous games.

    I'm not sure about the rule in Retro Werewolf though.

    Edit: looked at the rules. It only mentions a 'first seer', so I would assume that there isn't a second seer.

    Edit edit: I have no idea what's going on, read Harrows post below.

    In the rules:

    The only thing regular villagers can do is vote on who will be lynched at the end of the day.
    Extra Seers - Any extra seers will start the game thinking they are ordinary villagers. In the event that the first seer is killed then another seer will take their place, in order (Second, Third and so on). - note - third seers are very rare and are usually only recruited mid game if another seer is an inactive player.

    Looks like we will have one more seer, maximum.

    Second seer if you are around, I'd get your view in nice and early.
  13. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Holy carp. that was a bloody bad night. really sorry WAS. I followed Moog for the second time as he was so spot on the first night.

    If the guardian protected Moog first night and was pretty correct in doing so, then by guarding HG last night should we assume that the Guardian got it right again and HG is good?
  14. miked2006

    miked2006 Premiership Prediction League Proprietor

    This! It means that the whole group has the best chance to look and think about the message, especially for those who work.
  15. miked2006

    miked2006 Premiership Prediction League Proprietor

    If Moog was the seer, then surely this clears HG?
  16. Cassetti's Beard

    Cassetti's Beard First Team

    If possible, it would be great if the back up Seer could get their message in early - although the Wolf did say they'd do the same thing yesterday.

    If we could all hold off voting till late in the day like yesterday it'll get us all time to think about this properly.

    I think we either have 2 wolfs remaining, or one wolf and a traitor.
  17. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Surely it's 2 wolves unless the traitor can kill as well as 2 were eaten last night?
  18. HappyHornet24

    HappyHornet24 Crapster Staff Member

    Agreed - 2 wolves and a traitor left I think.
  19. Cassetti's Beard

    Cassetti's Beard First Team

    Yes, that would make sense.

    If WatfordTalk and Cluthlu were both evil, and then for Opti to activate the full moon would mean we probably already got the Traitor?

    Would make it incredibly difficult if there was two wolves, a traitor and a tinker left.
  20. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    So all the messages together so far:

    DAY 1

    Anonymous Message #1

    Salutations villagers. Eager to pull out a baddy, I viewed the suspiciously quiet Grrwood.

    Eventually got a response and it turns out he is GOOD.

    Roll on tomorrow and a chance to view someone else.

    Anonymous Message #2

    Greetings. A very warm hello from Mr. Seer. Our wolf was very eager today! Naturally I have decided to view grrwood in response to his message and have discovered grrwood is EVIL. A brave if slightly naive move from an inexperienced player. Roll on Day Two, your seer.

    DAY 2

    Anonymous Message No.1

    Some people were suspicious of Hornetgags so I have chosen him for my viewing today. Erratic voting aside, he has behaved with suspciion. Evidently, however, he is GOOD. So that's Grrwood (dead) and Hornetgags who I have viewed so far and both are GOOD.

    Anonymous Message #2

    Greetings villagers. Apologies for the late message, this will not happen tomorrow. I chose to view HornetGags (for obvious reasons).

    I was rather surprised to hear that they are EVIL.

    Roll on tomorrow and a chance to view someone else.

    I guess we assume message 1 on day 1 was Moog. Is message 1 on day 2 definitely him as well? that would instantly clear HG.
  21. Cassetti's Beard

    Cassetti's Beard First Team

    Yep, that would make sense.
  22. miked2006

    miked2006 Premiership Prediction League Proprietor

    Moog went in really strongly on WAS, despite the second post "finding Gags evil".

    As long as Moog was the seer, I think that HG is confirmed good.
  23. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Is there any other VERY GOOD moog could have been other than the Seer?
  24. Cassetti's Beard

    Cassetti's Beard First Team

    Just the Guardian I think? But the Guardian was standing over HG last night.
  25. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Where was the Memorial service?
  26. HappyHornet24

    HappyHornet24 Crapster Staff Member

    We need a message.
  27. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    I'll be honest HH24, from day one I thought you were the Seer in as your very first post you used the words "watching" and "watch" which stayed with me. Thought it was a subtle message for us to pick up on but I guess not now!
  28. HappyHornet24

    HappyHornet24 Crapster Staff Member

    People often get Moog and me confused, it's true (emoji in the absent TVOR's honour)
  29. hornetgags

    hornetgags McMuff's lovechild

    Sorry, delayed due to a pressing and urgent occurence (i.e. real work)

    11.30am is the re-scheduled time.
  30. Harrow Orn

    I have a theory, most likely a crap one but who cares but before I go to meetings/my day gets busy I will leave you with this:

    Anonymous message 2 yesterday which I think we can assume was from the wolf:

    "Greetings villagers. Apologies for the late message, this will not happen tomorrow. I chose to view HornetGags (for obvious reasons). I was rather surprised to hear that they are EVIL. Roll on tomorrow and a chance to view someone else."

    1 Hour later HappyHornet posts this:

    "Afternoon. Sorry for lack of activity. Friday - was daughter's birthday and out at Go Ape for much of day. Today - ice skating followed by swimming with friends. Tomorrow is a day in waiting for plumbers/electricians/wasp man etc etc so (if I make it that far) I'll be back in the village most of the day."

    Firstly, in both messages there is an apology for late message/activity. Secondly, the wolf says this will not happen again whilst HappyHornet also confirms that they will be more active themselves tomorrow.

    Too much of a coincidence?

    Dearly beloved, We are gathered here today to celebrate the life and to honour the memory of Otter and Moog

    It is the death of our friends that has brought us together but his life that we wish to remember. We are drawn here by our common love, our common respect and our common grief. This is certainly an occasion for sorrow but may it also be an occasion for thanksgiving because we are thankful for the gift of life and we are thankful that these 2 lived among us.

    We live in the knowledge that although both are gone, their smell...soul lingers eternally and so on and so forth

    We therefore commit their bodies to the ground, earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust, looking for that blessed hope when the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven yada yada yada.

    Would any of his friends like to deliver a eulogy?
  32. Diamond

    A very good shout. If we have a Seer then this is possibly a good viewing opportunity today.

    Looking back on Moogs posts yesterday I also concur that HG is likely to be good.

    Here's my take so far:
    Evil lost an early Wolf and the traitor, then had a full moon so 2 wolves roaming about. They haven't made the same kill yet so DON'T know each other. They are as much in the dark as we are.
    Good have lost the Seer but hopefully have a backup. Only HG can be assumed good.

    Need messages.
  33. Cassetti's Beard

    Cassetti's Beard First Team

    I think we have the following:

    2 x Wolves

    1 x Guardian
    1 x Tinker
    1 x Backup Seer

    4 x Villager

    HG is good
    Wolf don't know each other
  34. Diamond

    Diamond First Team

    Agreed. If I were a wolf the last thing I'd want to do is possibly implicate another wolf, so we need to check back and see who has sat on the fence and not been throwing suspicions about. Someone may also have changed behaviour since the full moon happened.
  35. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    HG, as the 99% agreed only good player confirmed, any thoughts on viewings or wolves?
