IT'S NOT 9AM, BUT WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
Slappybrown, (Nothing to read into, he was just the first one to sign up…)
After having your last village completely ravaged and destroyed by a band of mercenaries (from a land called Filthadelphia), the few surviving members of the old village are finally settling into your new village: Jaystowne (named after your god, of course), hoping to lead a peaceful, safe existence and get on with your lives. However, there are some that have a different idea…
During your travels, there has been a sickness found called “The Darkness.” There are no visible signs or symptoms of this illness, but it fundamentally changes your kinsmen. It started off gruesomely as you found a friend brutally murdered with a trusted townsperson dancing over their wrecked body, wearing the lifeless skin as a mask. He was executed on the spot; however, it wasn’t just your average death. When the axe severed his head, a dark spirit left his body and, with a banshee wail, fled into the cold night sky.
You had hoped that was the end of it, but…today, you awoke and knew that things weren’t right. The black clouds covered the sky and an ominous wind was howling against the modest homes of Jaystowne. The morning sun never was given the chance to rise and a melancholy was sweeping most of the residents. You just knew that The Darkness has returned…now you just need to figure out who possesses the taint (tee hee, I said “taint”) and slay them, lest your new, idyllic village be doomed to the same fate of your old.
Looking out your window, as you take a long draw from your pipe, wondering to yourself if you are infected, you can clearly see the following:
NPV708 and Azkar are churning butter. At least you think that’s what they’re doing…the motion’s right, but the bush is obscuring your view, and Azkar seems just a bit too excited about what’s transpiring.
Wallflower and MikeEnIke are practicing their sword work. Wallflower wins the duel, of course, and Mike blames the dueling league for “fixing things for the poster girl of the league”.
Dagny and NAN are crying by the lake because they know they’re going to be the first targets for no real reason.
Twisted Wrister and crayz are getting a little too into their game of mumblypegs…
PFiDC and Hockeynut! are deciding where to place the shrine to jaysmiter (hint: he likes beer!).
Zarovich and tfrizz are gardening. What green thumbs those two have! You grow those rutabagas, boys!
Shafnutz and IrishEyes are discussing the finer points of goblin anatomy. IrishEyes giggles every time they discuss anything about the goblin’s crotch region.
Corvi and beerman are busy putting the final touches on beerman’s newest ale: Filthy Drunk Ale – “Named that way because you’ll get filthy drunk if you drink it, you idiots.” He never was one for snappy slogans.
Senka and THG are running around a house babbling nonsense because, well, that’s what they’re best at and the town never really wants to give them anything useful to do, anyway.
Canaan and redwill are arguing about putting the favorite town workhorse down because it has a broken leg (from carrying Canaan, mind you). Redwill thinks he can save it…canaan needs something to adhere some paper together.
Letang, Troy Loney, and Mac are working on their latest ditty for the tavern tonight. They don’t seem to understand how rhyming works, thus so far they have “We are drinking at the bar/We are drinking at the bar/You should be too/Ale is so tasty!” Needless to say, they’ve got a lot of work to do.
Count2infinity and The Wicked Child smell awful since they haven’t bathed in probably about a year. You don’t even like looking at them because you can pretty much smell them through your eyes.
MWB and Relantel are out in the wilderness killing small animals over and over trying to “get experience so that they can level up” whatever the hell that means. You just kind of think their humors are a bit…off.
Kicksave was hanging out, talking to himself...because, frankly, nobody ever cares what he has to say.
Realizing you’ve been staring through a piece of glass for well over an hour, you finally decide to go out into the towne square and call for a meeting, to see if anyone else has the same feelings you do…
So, Jaystowne, here’s where you stand. Night 1 has passed. It is now Day 1. There are 30 villagers.
Your commands are “slay” and “spare”
3. cup keeper
8. Troy Loney
9. the wicked child
14. Twisted Wrister
26. Letang Is The Truth
It takes 16 to slay. Choose wisely.
You have until 9pm Monday night…
