While it may be true that Dj's post restriction causes his lack of content, he pings me nonetheless. His posts have been very lacking in content thus far, and perhaps the only thing I agree with him about is that I need to stop talking about a lyncher - I did get a little sidetracked.
However, his cases against players (Sabrar, for example) seem weak, and his reasoning thin on the ground. I'm cutting it fine in terms of time but I have to work. If I get my break before deadline I'll post again.

In case I don't:

Vote:Djehutynakht
Kewangji: Posdy zwei tosdy osdy oady. Bork bork bork, hoppity syphilis bork.

Eebster the Great: What specifically is moving faster than light in these examples?
doogly: Hands waving furiously.

For someone who's inactivity is evident
To claim suspicion on lacking content strikes me as hypocrite.
And the vote strikes me to save your own hide
By finding yourself a bandwagon to ride.

Yet Sabrar I still think is my best guess
It's not the best case, I do confess.
No hard feelings Sabrar, but a vote must be done.
I don't see any better evidence than mine on Day 1.

Edit:
Unvote

Vote: Carlington

Although about this I have my reservation
and I did say that Sabrar's my firs'
I must make an attempt at self-preservation
So that I may carry on posting merry verse.
And Sabrar could use some more investigation.

Time's running out, place votes now, don't be yellow
I ask that you spare the noose for me, good fellow.

Alas, I have been gone for a par of days
But the deadline cometh and bringeth tears neigh,
I most cast a vote I hope I don't regret,
but dear Djehutynakht has little content
A mafia would hope to not be read by thus

VOTE: Djehutynakht

If thine post were meant to convince me to remove my vote for thee, it hath been a poor try. To me, it seemeth more that thou wouldst push our fine players to vote in haste for another, that the weight of their decisions might counterweight the rope wrapping 'round thy neck. By thy very own admission, thy suspicion of yours truly be not the strongest, yet thou wouldst send me to the gallows all the same f'r't. Fie, I cry thee a villain thus!

Little content is the excuse of a fool.
And who are you two, but fellows in suspect?
And what is your vote but a tool?
To save you from the hanging direct?

One a knave, the other a mute
O, the class of my enemies is acute!

At least I've put forth more content than you
Who rely on an explanation that's expired due.

But mayhaps I'll come back and my eyes will gleam
On sight of your corpse, and this be but a dream.

If nothing should change, Djehutynakht will be lynched.

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
If you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.

CHORUS:
And so the merry troupe did come to see
That less than clear they saw identity.
"That one's a King!" the mummy shouted loud,
"Messina claims he as his home. That crowd
Hath none of kings, just fools and lovers four."
"And yet the mummy saith but naught of lore,"
Said those small whelps who call themselves Sabrar.
"The cat's alone, though there are two! How far
Will he advance his cause against great Rome?"
So spoke the mighty Jimbob from his home.
The votes were counted, one, two, three,
A noose was readied for the big mummie…
And yet one cried, "Republic, ho!" and lo
The noose had movèd to the one alone.

Votals at the end of Scene I:
Djehutynakht (3): Sabrar, Carlington, heuristically_alone
heuristically_alone (3): jimbobmacdoodle, SirGabriel, Djehutynakht
Carlington (1): Echo244

not voting: freezeblade

heuristically_alone has been lynched, even though Djehutynakht reached the total of three before him.

Night. Enter jimbobmacdoodle, SirGabriel, and Djehutynakht with HAMLET, bound.

HAMLET:
With my fellow town friends that are thy chamber-maids; O, here
Will I set up my everlasting rest,
And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars
From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last!
Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you
The doors of breath, seal with an unrighteous lynching
A dateless bargain to engrossing death!
Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide!
My desperate envie, now at once run on
The dashing rocks to my own death like a tree I bark!
HAMLET is hanged. Exeunt omnes.

Enter MONTJOY
MONTJOY:
Perhaps I have found the wrong place and time,
but this yon Hamlet seems to be a townish man.
Yet I bring a message for the town.
Would that someone were here to hear it.

Enter OSWALD
OSWALD:
If thou writest a letter, I would carry it to the town.

MONTJOY:
Why a letter? I will tell thee here.

OSWALD:
I only carry letters, sorry.

They fight. OSWALD is beaten, but not killed.

MONTJOY:
Now, the message:
In the night were sounds of battle heard,
And yet it seemeth that no one more is dead.
But wait! Who is that upon the balcony?

OSWALD:
It doth appear to be the noble IAGO.
But yet the other know I not.

Two figures struggle on the balcony. IAGO falls to his death onto the town square. The mysterious figure vanishes into the shadows.

MONTJOY:
Methinks the town will have much to discuss.
Fare thee well, sirrah.
Exit MONTJOY

OSWALD:
I must inform the town forthwith.
OSWALD pulls out a scroll to write a letter.

MONTJOY and OSWALD are NPCs. They are purely flavor.
heuristically_alone was Envious HAMLET. Potentially-town tracker who needed Marcus Brutus dead to become fully town.
Carlington was ecstatic IAGO. Mafia framer.


Role details:

Spoiler:
You are Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and, by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub.


The death of your noble father has driven you to take arms against the evil men and women in this play. However, you are envious of Marcus Brutus, who got a much more rousing sendoff in his play. Good night sweet prince, indeed!

Post restriction: You cannot escape being the tragic hero. As a result, you will always include at least two lines of iambic pentameter in each of your posts. There is, however, no requirement that these lines be original.

Power: By playing the madman you are able to closely observe the actions of others. You may track one player each night to determine what other players he or she has visited.

Alignment: You are town, provided that Marcus Brutus dies before you. You win when all threats to town, plus Marcus Brutus, have been eliminated.

You are Iago, trusted lieutenant of the Moor of Venice.


But for my sport and profit. I hate the Moor,
And it is thought abroad that 'twixt my sheets
He has done my office. I know not if 't be true,
But I, for mere suspicion in that kind,
Will do as if for surety.


Your hatred for the Moor and his favoured Michael Cassio is the stuff of legend. Of course, you've already taken care of them, so you've set your eye on bigger things. You are ecstatic about this.

Post restriction: You should make ample use of adjectives that can be described as ecstatic. At the least once every 2-3 posts.

Power: As a member of the mafia, you have night chat with *redacted*. Together you decide on a person to kill and who is to carry out the kill. In addition, on one night you may plant evidence against one player. If they are investigated that night, the result will be adjusted accordingly.

Alignment: You are a member of the mafia. You win if you eliminate all members of the town and any threats to the mafia, or when this is inevitable.


6 players remain alive, 4 to lynch. Deadline

We shouldst only has't 1 scum left so I bethink we can solveth this by fully claiming as th're art belike nay m're independents eith'r. I assume from the wording of Hamlet's pm that Brutus is not an enemy of ours as in that case it would have read "all threats to town, including Marcus Brutus". I'm Don John, I redirect'd carlington to Djehutynakht (my top 2 suspicions aft'r alone wast lynched) last night.

I come before ye a shaken soul
My brush with death did take its toll.
I am but the gentle Puck.
And I have had a bit of luck.

A redirector I claim to be
(Sabrar as well? A possibility?)
Last night I targeted SirGabriel so
And redirected him to Carlington, our now dead foe.

A mafia's dead, so who killed the villain?
Be there here a vigilante chillin'?
Or did my redirect on SirGabriel cause
Carlington's wicked life pause?

Ah, but simple it was
SirGabriel was my second suspect, cos'.
And between the two,
I thought most likely to carry the kill...wasn't you.
Carlington was my third suspect for scum
(Out of you three, I'd guess two was the sum).

I will be busy helping run a big event between Friday evening and Monday afternoon British time and unlikely to post during this time.

I see a few possibilities to explain the night just gone. The first be that both a vigilante and doctor hath succeeded in their mission. The second 'tis that our supposed Puck telleth the truth and wast lucky with his target. The third beith that we have one who is paranoid and somewhat violent among us, and that DJ lieth for his own reasons. For myself I say that I did nothing last night and that I was not the cause of Carlington's death.

My thoughts are such that a second redirector a possibility is. Further I see no reason to disbelieve either of the other two who hath spoken. I do think DJ's reasoning fair is, so for now my second reason seems most likely.

I seeth no great reason to rush our claims, for M/Lylo it is not, though I do be prepared to do so, shouldst others say I must. As the Lord Moderator hath stated, scum do have claims of safety to mask their true identities, so beware that one doth not lie to us.

Just hadst the time to sit down and bethink through the votes from yest'rday. Nay handy time-lines this time due to post-restriction but here's the short version:
Djehutynakht is belike town ('r scum did play very much po'rly). At the timeth that he and Carlington voted f'r each oth'r all 4 players hadst 1 vote on them so th're wast nay needeth to bus. Those gents couldst has't gone f'r example aft'r alone instead who wast a good candidate. This eke supposes yond Djehutynakht kneweth that he wouldn'be lynch'd and his desp'rate plea f'r extension wast a fake, meaning that gent hadst a vote-influencing pow'r yond didn't showeth up in the votals. Howev'r those art rarely given to scum.

What's this? A death? Fine work, in the night, by those that seek to cast out evil from this town. I had thought that today's discussion would be sure to begin with ascertaining why he who turned out to be the Prince of Denmark was lynched before the one who claims Puck. But no! Greater events have left their mark, and we must address these first.

For my own part, where was I, in the night? I am Embarrassed. Forgive me, for I may not say precisely, but I played no part in the death of Iago, nor in saving any other.

I hear Dje's claims, and find them believeable. And yet, let us hear counter-claim, before we rush to judgement. Other explanations exist, and bold, early claims are a way of scum fighting back against such setbacks to their cause. We respect the early vote, and yet believe others should pause to make considered judgement. Speculation is but fog, unless one has a chance to have been involved without one's knowledge; thus, I will offer none.

To come back to the votals: those voting for heuristically_alone: jimbobmacdoodle, SirGabriel, Djehutynakht. Those voting for Dje: Sabrar, Carlington, heuristically_alone. Among the first group lies a double-vote power or similar; or among the latter, lies a false vote. Were it not for Dje's claim, I would be examining this, with the greater suspicion on the first group.

Besides this, who's left, in this dawn? A cold light, I expected, and yet as I read of Iago's passing, I found a warmth I had not expected.

Dje: Claims redirection power, and responsibility for Iago's death. Claims Puck, which fits the power. And doth accuse SirG. Close to the end, yesterday; by our understanding of the rules, should have been lynched. And yet, and yet, survived, and acted in the night such that one who means us fell afoul of his partner.

SirG: Hath kept his peace thus far this day. With such an accusation to face, I am unsurprised. And yet, we shall hear him, before passing judgement. In addition to Dje's accusation, I ask plainly: Did he tip the scales of the previous night's vote?

jimbob: Too oft will note possibilities, and offer his thoughts in a manner that may form a path for those who wish him ill to follow. And yet, I would not consider him to be meaning harm. His suggestions are worth examining, and closing off as possibilities; what remains, must be the truth. I wish him success for this weekend, and hope his event is indoors, that what storm may come doth blow over without incident.

Sabrar: Claims Don John and redirection, from Carlington to Dje. Notes well the presence of Brutus and their non-hostile nature.

freezeblade: Stands not accused, in the shadows, and has yet to offer his opinion, or any other possibilities on how all this may have come to pass.

Of all, I would hear the voice of the noble knight who doth stand accused. But also, of others. For the night's events to be other than as Dje claims, I believe, much beyond must have happened. Closing off those possibilities leaves fewer shadows in which evil might dwell.

No time for a long post at the moment, but I should be able to make one in a few hours.
A few quick things:
Why is DJ still alive?
Who is Marcus Brutus? (I'm not asking Brutus to claim, I'm asking all players who they think is likely to have picked Brutus)
Who killed Carlington? It was not a scum-kill misfire killing scum, as DJ claims. I am immune to nightkills, and it turns out I find out when I am the nightkill target (I did not realize this until I got the PM from the mod). And I was the target of a kill last night, which I presume is the scum kill.

I suspect DJ is scum, and either he or Carlington tried to kill me, so when I survived and Carlington died a re direct power would be a good disguise.
If we have a town vig who killed Carlington, please claim.
I would be happy to reveal my role if players desire it. I think it could be helpful in choosing whether to kill me or DJ, as my role, the restrict on my posting, and my power all connect very well to each other.

At this point I bethink those heroes who do not wanteth to share their identities with the rest of us doth so f'r noble reasons, so whilst I has't mine own suspicions it would beest unwise to speculate in the open about such things. I very much would has't liked to maketh the same play as in Wheel of Time but I understand if important roles (e. g. Cop, Vigilante) desire to hide f'r another night.

I concur with Sabrar. Who is Brutus? I think that not of import, compared to the actions that led to Iago's death, and the vote rebalancing that lead to the death of Hamlet. Discussions of other issues seem like the hum of a fog machine.

Dje hath made a strong move. This day has become about that. Either he tells the truth, and we lynch SirG. Or he lies, and must suffer that fate himself. Both voted for heuristically and against Dje, and thus are suspected of being able to tip the balance of votes.

We are not at M/LYLO, so time we have to unleash a plague on both their houses, if such a thing be necessary.

I would hear from freezeblade on the matter of the incidents in the night time, though I understand from Time Zones that he (probably) doth slumber yet.

Sabrar claimed to be Don John, the villain of Much Ado About Nothing, which makes sense with what he claimed before. And if he is telling the truth about his power, then Carlington was not chosen to carry out the kill.
DJ claims to be Puck (which is as likely as any other given the other roles he picked). He claims to have the same power Sabrar claimed (most likely one of the two is lying), and does so in such a way that I become suspect.
DJ then, before any cop results have been claimed, states that he likely appeared as scum last night to cops.
DJ states that he picked me as target because I was his second guess for likely scum, but as Sabrar said, he made no mention of that on day 1.
Sabrar and jimbob both think we can't rule out the claimed doubling of powers.
Echo claims, not his name, but how he emotes; his post sounds very townie to me.

Also, on day 1 DJ and Carlington both voted for each other. A risky move, if both are scum, but not an absurd or foolish one given both were top suspects. Once one was lynched, the other could claim he would not have bussed his partner as scum, and such a claim might be believed.

As to my role: I am Ajax, the might Greek hero who is somewhat slow of thought. As such, aside from names, I may use at most ten words of more than two syllables over the course of the game. Unless I made a mistake, I did not use any such words prior to the sentence which precedes this one, and I do not intend to use any such words again.
I have no power to alter votes.

I try not to be quick to vote, but in my eyes the case is clear. DJ is the scum who thought me a good scapegoat, then made a weak attempt to explain his claimed actions; but that will be his downfall, as Ajax is not a man to be trifled with. It is the rest of you who must decide between him and me, or at least which of us to kill first, as the other may be lynched on the morrow if the one lynched today is not scum.

Echo claims not *her* name, but how *she* emotes. ;-D
Unstoppable force of nature. That means she/her/hers.
Has committed an act of treason.

Went through our gentle knight's previous posts, hath found only 2 counterexamples f'r his claim (related and different). Doest not mean yond he speaketh the truth but Bulletproof is a likely power for his claim'd character. I knoweth not the play to judge whe'r he's slow on the uptaking, belike true though.

I pronounce "different" as two units, not three. I must have missed the other one.

I guess that's what happens when I focus more on counting word units than on correct pronouns.

Not being a native English speaker I used this site to check the words where I wasn't sure. Not that it really matters.

I have quickly read through the posts of our two main suspects, and I am leaning towards the perhaps less than gentle knight as being our second scum. Something about his counter-argument does not quite feel right. I cannot quite place it, but suspicious of his intentions it makes me still. I will do a more thorough reread later.

I also wish to sound a note of caution that we must not dismiss the possibility that both are telling the truth and yet something else messed things up.

One question I leave with you now, SirGabriel: what reasoning do you have for Carlington's death?

And one for all players: please, if you have not done so already, claim whether you could have caused the death of scum last night.

An answer to Carlington's death seemeth me would cracking this puzzle.

I've already claim'd so has't nay problem with this. Unless mine own ability hast a hidden element I couldst not has't been the causeth of Carlington's demise. I shall reit'rate though yond a possible Vigilante might wanteth to legitimately remain shrouded f'r anoth'r night.

Anon! a new day rise'ith p'on the sky
Two deaths on the square of all there to see
Though voted not I on previous day
Missreading the time, night to be call'd
Guilty I felt, for missing the deadline
And so I shot who I found most scummy
The scheming iago you see lying
Retribution for his words spoke lying.

I felt the spread of information thus / given is of benefit to the town
Only though the muddying of the truth / can the scum hold power us over
understand the worry that you so do have / A vig of full power though I am not
