Thuntworld Serial Killers Round 2 (Host: Harmsc12)

Post by Theonewhoisodd » Thu Mar 07, 2013 1:20 pm

TUNTWORLD SERIAL KILLERS
The lynch voting will close precisely at
9:00 P.M. Central Time (GMT -6 hours)
Any votes marked/kills sent after this time will not be counted. Updates posted shortly (say 20-40 minutes) after voting closes.

Signups, however, close whenever I feel like it, and there is no limit to how many people may sign up.

How it works

Welcome to Thuntworld Serial Killers, a forum-based murder-mystery game where people die on a daily basis and wild theories are tossed around like rag dolls!

The host will secretly select participating players at random to play the role of the killer, sent to them via private message. A killerÔÇÖs job is to craft a written passage (or screenshot, soundclip, artwork, or video, if theyÔÇÖre feeling particularly crafty) every day and PM it back to the host. The first of these is what we call the dummy kill - this will give an idea of the killerÔÇÖs writing style. Every day after that, the killer may select one person to die that round, working it into their kill. The host will present the kills to the entire thread at a specified time each day.

The citizens of the thread must then vote for the person they feel is guiltiest. This person will be lynched at the end of the round. If the innocent citizens lynch all the killers, the citizens win! If the killers evade notice and kill off enough people to outnumber the innocents, the killers win! Each round tends to last one week. Use anything from poltergeists to kitchen utensils, from orange juice to acidic poison, and from simple stab wounds to nursery rhymes. And remember, keep your identity a secret!


The Rules

*The host is always right. No exceptions.
* The number of killers each round is determined by the number of players, as is the number/inclusion of any additional roles. The more citizens, the more roles!
* All roles are chosen by random selection and given out secretly by PM.
* The citizens must try and work out who the killers are and vote accordingly. The person with the highest number of votes gets lynched at the same time kills are posted. The host then reveals if the person was a killer or not.
* Every day each killer sends in a single kill. The host then updates this post to show who has died and posts the kills and a lynch, if there is one.
* If by the end of the round the killers outnumber the citizens, or there is only one of each left, the killers win.
* The list of players at the top of this post is updated with every murder and lynch to show those who are alive and those who are dead.
* Citizens who sign up to be in the game must actively participate in the game.
* To sign up, post a sign up list with your display name added to it.
* If something comes up suddenly and you no longer wish to participate BEFORE the game has started, simply remove your name from the list. If you change your mind AFTER the game has started, PM the host and she will graciously remove you from the round.
* Citizens who do not post for 3 updates will be slaughtered mercilessly. For example, if Lord Cummerbund posts all during the 1st update, but goes mysteriously silent after the 2nd, and stays so during the 3rd and 4th, he will be killed in the 5th update.
* The are no Citizen Suicides.
* Don't go making a sockpuppet account just for this game. From now on, I will only accept kills sent from the account I have down as the killer.


(Special Cases can be dealt with, so PM the host if you have any questions.)

The Roles

Killers
The killerÔÇÖs job is to craft a kill every day to murder the innocent citizens and eventually overtake or match them in number. Depending on how many people sign up, there may be more than one killer, and they will work as a team via PM.

Basic Guideline for Killer-Citizen Ratio
(can be altered at will by your Gracious Host)

1 killer: 8-13 citizens
2 killers: 14-19 citizens
3 killers: 20-26 citizens
4 killers: 27-33 citizens
5 killers: 34-40 citizens
6 killers: 41-47 citizens
7 killers: 48-54 citizens
8 killers: 55-61 citizens
9 killers: 62-67 citizens


* All kills have to be in before voting closes (check top of page for update time). Your Gracious Host will accept kills well in advance of the deadline - in fact he prefers them! But please, while you are encouraged to plan your kills out in advance, only send in ONE KILL PER DAY. Thank you.
* You are required to send a kill in on time, everyday. If you are late, or do not send one in at all, then no kill will be posted. This is bad, as citizens are very quick to figure out who was not online at the time the kill should have arrived. Additionally, if you miss more than one day, your Gracious Host may provide the citizens with a clue to your identity, with one clue every subsequent day you miss a kill.
* Kills must be a MINIMUM of two sentences, with 250 characters total. This is a MINIMUM requirement, and it is encouraged to go above and beyond for your kills. If your kill does not meet the min. requirements, it will count as though you did not send one in. Exceptions to the character count can be made in the event of image manipulation being used as the bulk of the kill, but only at the Host's discretion. Whether a kill qualifies or not is ultimately up to the host; if they do not find it suitable, they will not post it.
* Kills must be original. Using a theme, or drawing inspiration from outside sources is encouraged, as it adds variety and identity to your killer persona, and direct quotes may even be used, but the bulk of the kill must be in your own writing. In addition, any images used in a kill must be wholly original works created by the Killer, unless proof the artist's expressed permission can be provided.



Citizens
Every one participating, unless you are chosen for a specific role, is a citizen. You exist as cannon fodder for killers, lynch bait for your fellow citizens, and most importantly, as the only people capable of stopping the killer in their murderous rampage.

After each update, the citizens get to vote for one person whom they believe to be a killer. The player who receives the most votes gets lynched along with the evening's murders.

* If there is a tied vote for lynching, the victim will be chosen by random selection.
* You can withhold voting if you do not wish to vote.
* You can change your vote however many times you wish or withdraw it completely until the voting is closed.
* When placing your vote, you must also state the overall tally of the rounds votes and list who has voted for who. This makes it easier for the host to lynch the correct person and not miss votes by accident. If you fail to put this information in, your vote will not be counted.
* You may choose to write your own lynch. It is encouraged! Should you do so, it should be PMed to the host before the update, just like the kills.



Ghosts
When players are killed (through murder or lynching), they become ghosts and lose the power to vote. However, they are still allowed to post in the thread and give advice to the living.

* Ghosts must post in a different color to help people keep track of who is still alive.
* If you had a role other than citizen or killer, it will not be revealed upon your death. Once you're dead, however, it is up to you whether or not to reveal yourself.



Optional Roles


Detective
The detective's role is, like the citizens, to uncover the killers; however, he or she has access to certain information that normal citizens do not.

Following each update the detective can PM the host one yes or no question, with the exception of asking the Killer's identity. The Detective may ask their question any time before the kill is posted - the sooner you ask, the sooner you will get an answer.

* Your Detective identity is to be kept secret at all times, and may not be revealed to anyone publicly or privately. You must convince people you are right like any other citizen would, by coming up with evidence and valid arguments.
* Once dead, the detective can reveal who s/he is, and submit one clue to the host via PM. This may be an answer received during the game, reworded into a cryptic fashion, or a clue of the Detective's own devising. The Detective may not blatantly state whom they believe the Killer to be. The host will then post it for the citizens to review.



Hench Ducky
The Hench Ducky's job is to help the killer survive at all costs, and ensure a killer victory. They will be notified of the killerÔÇÖs identity, but will not submit kills themselves. How you do this is up to you, but remember, any good lackie would throw themselves in the way of danger for their glorious leader.


Rabid Mousecat
The Rabid Mousecat eats votes. After biting someone, they temporarily invalidate their target's vote through clever use of rabies


Example:

Current lynch score
Bobby: 5 (Theo, Roxanne, Miles, Lucifer, Giorgio)
Susie Q: 4 (Sexy T-Rex, Robot Rob, Tomas, Archibald von Archibald)
Archibald von Archibald: 4 (John Paul II, Bobby, Susie Q, Leslie)

Giorgio is the Rabid Mousecat. He sends a PM to the host before the votes are counted.
"Rrrrah! I wants to bite Theo." -nibble nibble!- Thanks to the Rabid Mousecat, the score becomes a three-way tie. How dirty!

Players:
1. Dolarodus
2. Donnigan
3. Knucklekraken
4. Martinthegoblin
5. Orzahn
6. Kelten
7. Warlock
8. Sags
9. Bloogonis
10. Gesundheit
11. BurnsBees
12. EvilCoatrack
13. Csorutg
14. notimportant
15. ming
16. Ageisia
17. Metruis

THUNTWORLD SERIAL KILLERS -- ROUND 2 TURN 1

Hello, and welcome back! In the news today, a talking cow was spotted at 30th and Elm shooting milk at bank robbers. Witnesses reported the bovine dogooder shouting "¡Supercow al rescate!" upon arriving.

---
Kill of Kore:

"Chief LovesAGoodMystery", Chief of the "WhoDunnit" Tribe, invites several famous and important individuals to a party. Unfortunately, the invitations were misdirected and the following individuals show up.

1. Dolarodus
2. Donnigan
3. Knucklekraken
4. Martinthegoblin
5. Orzahn
6. Kelten
7. Warlock
8. Sags
9. Bloogonis
10. Gesundheit
11. BurnsBees
12. EvilCoatrack
13. Csorutg
14. notimportant
15. ming
16. Ageisia
17. Metruis

At dinner, Chief LovesAGoodMystery gives a toast to all the guests and takes a sip of his drink. He immediately grabs his throat and falls over dead. A small scroll is found under his seat which reads,
"Eighteen little Goblins partied on the mezzanine;
One drank too much and now there were seventeen."
The back of the scroll reads, "Your lucky numbers are 7, 4, 2, 4".
A small letter "G" is carved into the side of the Chief's chair.

Victim: Chief LovesAGoodMystery

Kill of Dellyn:

A scent of spiced food fills your nose, and with one more step into the room the murder becomes apparent.
You see that fierce slash (with a sharp weapon) has slashed up the victims chest, leaving his dinner in a puddle on the floor.
It is, as you all know, Dr. Black that is the first victim
A yellow note is lying on the floor next to the body with the one word message; Sags

Clues for the detective
weapon; probably a big bloody sword
► Show Spoiler
Dinner; sheep's pluck, stock and spices
► Show Spoiler
Victim: Dr. Black

Now start finger pointing!

(Odd's Note: Obviously I'm not going to post every post here but I will copy the ones that stood out.)
knucklekraken:
EVILCOATRACK IS EVIL. LYNCHES HIM.
Dolarodus:
Warlok and Csorutg

Csorutg killed Dr. Black
Warlock killed Cheif

Why? It's to do with the number puzzle thing. Im not sure enough to try to convince anyone else so I'll just stand by my own choice.

I am however wondering what happened to the art we were supposed to get?
EvilCoatRack:
My votes go to the people who are discriminating against me based purely on my name, which was given to me years ago.

Seriously, don't hate me just because I'm a coatrack. What did I ever do to you?
Warlock:
OK, I've done the vote digging. Since each person only gets one vote, I've only tallied those. If you voted previously for more than one person, please vote again. To make it easier, I copied the entire list of players here. Just copy it, update the vote tally and add your name to the end.

For my vote, I'm gonna have to agree with BurnBees, just because of the letter G thing. I'm voting for Gesundheit. Hopefully more clues will be revealed in the next round.
Harmsc12:
RPing. Not something I anticipated when starting this game, but it's still vastly entertaining.

<snip>

edit: Votes Locked.

Donnigan 2 (Orzahn, Ming)
Gesundheit 5 (BurnsBees, Warlock, Martinthegoblin, Sags, EvilCoatrack)
EvilCoatrack 4 (Knucklekraken, Kelten, Metruis, Gesundheit)
Csorutg 1 (Ageisia)
Knucklekraken 1 (Csorutg)
kelten 1 (notimportant)

Maglubiyet, in his divine wisdom, is sometimes merciful.

And sometimes not. Gesundheit woke immediately, the thunk of the candlestick hitting his head rousing him in time for him to become the snake's three course meal.

His please fell on deaf ears. EvilCoatrack appeared to lead the mob, vengeful after Gesundheit's vain attempts to point the the finger elsewhere.

Desperate, Gesundheit lunged through the crowd - but the snake was faster. It flashed forward, its teeth sinking into his foot.

Gesundheit lashed out, blindly, with the candlestick. He thought it hit someone, but couldn't be sure. His foot was going numb.

"You fools!" He screamed, the snake's poison slowly immobilizing his entire body. Inspiration suddenly struck him. "The numbers! It all makes sense! The killer is..."

After that, he said no more. The numbing agent had done its work. But he felt every moment as the snake slowly swallowed him, and screamed silently as his merciless killers watched from afar.

Congratulations!

Kill of Kore:

Bloogonis is found drowned in bathtub. He was still dressed, which indicates that it was intentional.
A small scroll found nearby reads,
"Seventeen little Goblins vote on a lynching;
One got strung up and now there were Sixteen.
Sixteen little Goblins sampling some cuisine;
One went swimming a little too soon and then there were Sixteen."
The back of the scroll reads, "Your lucky numbers are 2, 7, 3, 8".
A small letter "T" is carved into the wall near the tub.

Victim: Bloogonis

Kill of Dellyn:
Image
In front the cross lies a body, so different that you hardly recognize who it is.
The skin of the body is dyed blue, except for the head that lies by the right side of the cross.
You see that fierce slash (with a sharp weapon) has severed the head from the body.
The body is the body of Sags. The last note was a death note.
And on the floor on the left side of the cross is a new note, with the name; Donnigan

Victim: Sags

CITIZENS LEFT: 1714!

1. Dolarodus
2. Donnigan

Harmsc12:
I almost forgot the snarky one-liner:

Somebody fragged Sags.
Sags:
My saga was short yet tragic.
Knucklekraken:
In all seriousness, I'm gonna have to change my vote to Kelten. I had wavered on that point last night, and I believe I chose poorly. Sorry for telling everyone to kill you, Donnigan.

But I may do it again. So I guess I'm not that sorry.
Ming:
We have more than enough data now to pick people logically. . . Kelten's insistance on voting for EvilCoatrack based on his login-name seems like he's not even trying to 'really' figure out who the killer is.

I still have my eye on Donnigan as the second.
Orzahn:
I also think it wouldn't be as much fun if the same person is the killer twice... :S but I only just realised that XD
Donnigan:
And then someone jumps in and says "Aha! But that's how they get you!" I think I'll vote for whoever ends up doing that. Aside from myself of course.
Kelten:
As the mob gathers there pitchforks, the Kelt desides to run for it.
Leaving a note on the empty bedroom door, he takes his Celtic dagger and runs for the exit.
but by this time the mob is at the door.

Drawing his knife over the top of his hand he draws blood, and shouts a enchant Celtic curs!

"MÅ ALLA NI SOM DÖDAR MIG SOVA LITE SÄKRARE!"

He waves the dagger back and forth but is soon overpowered and his life lies now in the hands of the mob.
harmsc12:
The mob picks him up by his feet, dangles him from a balcony and start shaking. More daggers start falling out, and guns, knives, bombs, stolen coins, the part of Lady Gaga's brain that dictates fashion, forks, spoons, Mel Gibson's AA card, all the legal porn ever posted on 4chan, needles, 4 pounds of marijuana, all the CP ever posted on 4chan, and a twig. The twig, oddly, was especially infuriating to the mob.
knucklekraken:
"That twig is especially pointy!" shouts Knucklekraken over the clang and rattle of blades on stone. He picks the twig up and shoves it in Kelten's eye.
Ming:
As ming heads down to the street to eat the small part of lady gaga's brain, the mob looks disapprovingly at him. . .
"What? Not ok?"

Fourteen little Goblins voting democratically;
One who was to blame now swings from a tree.

EvilCoatRack:
I just want to point that kelten voted for me twice. Please stop wasting time targeting me and let's go after the real killer. I was nearly lynched the first round - and a killer wouldn't want to kill off his only ally after just one round.

With that said, the letters we've gotten so far from the second killer have been, in order: T, G, U.

"csorugt" spelled backwards is "tgurosc."

Do we want to wait until the next letter's an R before we go after csorugt?
Metruis:
I think I've solved this number and letter mystery!

...It means absolutely nothing! notimportant is the killer!
