Lux Angeles. City of the Angels.

The weary Shamus peered through the cracked, yellowing slats at his window. He took in the grimy, rain-soaked pavement below and drew on his cigarette. This was his city, but whoever named her must have had a screw loose. Not many angels to be found on these streets. Night was falling, and even the alley cats were scurrying to hide for the Night.


********************
It is now Night One.

Those of you with Night actions, please PM me by7:59PM EDT on Tuesday, May 14th.
Rules and roles are here.
A time zone converter is here.

Good luck, all.

Lux Angeles. La-la Land.

dollabillz shivered and turned up the collar of his bedraggled trench coat. He thought L.A. was supposed to be warm and inviting. He hadn't been in the city long, but so far the only thing as advertised was the hot and cold running orange juice. Damned stuff was impossible to avoid. He grinaced at the thought of all that vitamin C.

dolla turned out of the wind to light a smoke. The end glowed, a vivid target in the night.

********************
  • dollabillz was killed Night One. He had an investigative role, and becomes The Ghostly Gumshoe. As the Gumshoe:
    • He can participate in discussions during the Day.
    • He can vote to send someone to The Big House, but only by PM.
    • He has lost his normal investigative powers.
    • He will fade away when his killer dies. He doesn't know who that is... yet.
********************
It is now Day One.

You may now discuss the events of the Night, and, if you wish, vote to send one player to The Big House. Votes must be in by 7:59PM EDT on Wednesday, May 15th.

Good luck, all.

well I for one am overwhelmed with the possibilities in this game with so little people, however it seems clear the best course is to abstain without further knowledge. Any votes would likely be completely random guesses, with greater chance of killing innocents.

Tough break losing an investigator night 1, Dolla if you were with the innocents you should reveal this in the thread since you possess the ability to. Although I guess if you don't we can just assume you were the two-bit.

Yeah. What manimal said. I abstain for now as well.

$ was The Hard-Boiled Policeman, The Private Dick, or The Two-Bit Grifter.

We can't deduce for certain if he was innocent or Mafia.

I have no information.

I point fingers at no one.

I drink with reckless abandon.

Ok, The Hard-Boiled Policeman can't be killed at night by the vigilante. If Dollz was the policeman, it would have had to be mafia who killed him. If he was the Private Dick, vigilante or mafia could have killed him. But, I would like to assume that the vigilante wouldn't just be shooting randomly on the first night because of the chance that they might accidentally kill an innocent.

The godfather, on the other hand, would know who all the mafia members are starting night one and would more likely send one of his goons to kill a non-mafia member. He (or she) coulda targeted dolla because he thought he was funny, had a score to settle, or just purely random.

It seems more likely to me than dolla was innocent and was killed by mafia in the night. Of course, there's no real way to be sure, and there's no real way to know who is mafia even if dolla was innocent.

I'm also not entirely sure that not voting is the best course of action for the innocents. Might it be better to try to go for a possible mafia member, rather than risk getting no mafia member and having them kill another innocent tonight?

These are just my thoughts. I know I'm rambling, but I'm just trying to make sense of all the possiblities.

Edit: I guess it's possible that the serial killer (if there is one) could have also killed dolla. So many possibilities in this one.

I was the Private Dick.

I might've been killed by the vigilante, but i doubt it.

The sheriff can confirm my innocence since he'll have gotten the results of my attempted investigation last night. I'm sure he doesn't want to reveal himself though.

Sheriff, if either of those investigations came back as guilty i'm gonna suggest you PM me. I'm still able to vote via PM to TSK, so if everyone else is abstaining, we could take out a baddie without you having to reveal yourself.

• Rhye
• n00less cluebie
• kude
• jesterme
• Shockandawe
• *manimal
• Big Will E Style

I admit, I do enjoy a good Dolla killing, but the point is to not be obvious if you're mafia...so I'm guessing you were killed because the mafia fears you more than hates you...yeah I'm still laughing about it too.

That being said, I'm interested in N00's vote tonight after last game's fiasco with him and Whirl. If he votes WP, I say we just get rid of him.

For now, I'll vote Jesterme, as he has f'd me over too many times in this game despite whether he was a teammate or an enemy.

Interesting that will is casting a vote that immediately negates my suggestion to cast a single decisive vote in secret with the help of the law...

hopefully n00 abstains.

I think innocents should probably abstain for today and let me see if i can get something going with the copper.

I just reread about the town history in town hall.

SO.

Mafia had no way on night one to investigate anyone. The Con man had a 1 in six chance of knowing who anyone was.

Dolla was most likely killed without his role being known. So that does not give the citizenry anything to go me 'hic' thinks.

Well if the sheriff provides you with information, then I will abstain and go that route, but I'm not going to abstain until we have info. It all depends on N00's vote anyway...

Whoever killed you was probably hoping for such a public reaction, so they could avoid an abstain on the first day. (Besides the whole, vote for you in hopes you'll explain why you're innocent.) In either event, seems we don't have much to go on.

Abstain.

I vote for Jest

Well as we CANT make any GOOD EDUCATED guesses. I'll go off what we got.

1) Big Will has currently made the only vote, he voted for Jest.

2) Jest was also on Dolla's list of people who'd want to kill him

3) I am 100% willing to change my vote if someone has anything else that might be able to change my mind.

n00less cluebie abstains.

And since I was late in posting his vote, I'll accept any votes submitted before 8:45PM EDT. (Sorry!)
