    Sidenote: Luissss seems as though he could be the assassin, and so do Erik, gebne, and MK. I suspect that one of these players is the assassin. Mk for the same reason I am presently voting Rok, Luisss for following so quietly moments ago plus his silly "guys look how guard I am" post N1, Erik because I don't think Valy randoms rounds and he hasn't been quite his usual erratic self this round, and gebne because she's as inscrutable as ever.

And if the assassin is tied for up for lynch, then he / she has to make a decision about whether or not to use his/her kill that day thus losing the game early since their chance of picking king randomly is very slim.

    I think you're misunderstanding. The assassin doesn't get to first know that they lost the dice roll THEN pick to use their ability; they have to make the decision before they know who loses the random. If they do decide to use it, then their kill will still go through even if they lose the random.

    Since I don't believe that both you and Rok are this silly, I must vote for one of you.

    Vote: Rokchik
    That is incorrect. The assassin is lynched and then has a day to pick their kill. The point of this game is to limit their options, and maximize the amount of people who they can pick from. I'll go over usual strategies for this game when it's over. I don't like them, and though they're effective, they make the game VERY dull.

    And you're correct. I do not random rounds USUALLY. Some kinds of games like this I might.

    Since when?

    This rule is shenanigans.

    Unvote Rok
    Vote: Gebne

    Valy's shenanigans clears my suspicion of Rok and MK based on the above I suppose.

    This is always how I've done it, and I believe I'm the usual AitP host. It's pretty common to prevent the assassin not making it in time to make their shot.

    I just assumed it was standard rules

    If the assassin has a different rule then the host should declare it in the start post.

    Unless Valy is the assassin.

    I don't think Gebne is a good choice to lynch. A better option would be burn or Eric.

    Vote: Eric

    I'm incredibly busy. I haven't been my usual self in the other sections either. I agree with putting lynch votes on Eric.

    Trust me , I am not the assassin ... Nor am I the king ... I am just a lowly guard ... gebne is a much better choice than me ...

    And as to the reason why I am not my usual self, this game is too simple that I cant trash talk and confuse you guys ... I'll host a mafia round one day and you will see how much fun it will be.

    Because if you try narrowing yourself out, you make it easier on the assassin. Everyone is expendable.

    If my math is right, Geb is being lynched. Someone check this?

    3 votes for Geb, 3 for Eric, 2 for DP, and 1 for Eric actually.

    Agree on the Geb lynch.

    No, that's all 9 votes. Geb dies.

    That's definitive.

    Well SC and I agree. So it's probably right .

    Thank you. That's what I thought, but for some reason I was confused by vote count today.

    Gebne was lynched and was the assassin.

    Geb, you now have 24 hours to make your kill in a PM to me while you are on the way to the gallows.

    Yes (so was I), but... in an AITP game the best way for town to win is to shut up and lynch (see, I read the wiki...). Scum hunting is usually more use to the assassin than the guards, so the best response is to kill off the chatty ones early it seems. And now shutting up without giving the assassin any more help is the best bet too.
    I'm glad I'm not judgemental like all you smug, superficial idiots

    All I have to do is divine from what I know of you the guards:

    are you the sort of guards who would vote for the king or keep him completely out of the running night one?

    Clever guards would vote for the king straight up, because they would know that only a great fool would suspect a lynch candidate.
    I am not a great fool so I clearly cannot ignore any of the night one candidates.

    But you must have known that nobody here is a great fool.
    You would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose any night one candidates.

    Now you all know the assassin comes from Australia and Australia is populated by criminals,
    so you clearly knew an Australian was the assassin and thus you lay a trap by putting various votes out on the king night two.
    Clearly I cannot choose the candidate who was so noisy and made himself a clear target.

    As she is being taken to the gallows, Gebne suddenly grabs a small poisoned dagger from her sleeve. She tosses it quickly...at Scarecrow! Though he suffers a painful agonizing death, everyone rejoices for the kingdom is safe.

    The assassin failed to kill Mouse-Keyboard, the king. The guards win!
