Short Stories Mafia Game Thread

Not the kind with cardstock and pawns. Mostly play by post Mafia so far.

Use bold text to cast your final votes or otherwise address the mods. Do not confer with each other privately about this game. If you send mods PMs, send them to both me and Nemo. Day One will end 72 hours from this posting; cast final votes and stop talking before then and we'll move into the night cycle. YOU ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT NIGHT ACTIONS IN ADVANCE, but night will last 48 hours. Make sure you are familiar with general rule updates from the OOC thread. Play to your current win condition. You are not encouraged to roleplay beyond your character-themed mechanical traits. You are encouraged to keep us informed of what's going on, so that we may laugh at your misery. If you have not read the short story your character is from, I recommend doing that; if you don't know which short story your character is from, ask me, privately.

GUESS WHO'S BEEN REDUCED TO A FEW UNSIGHTLY BLOODSTAINS, SIGNS OF A STRUGGLE, AND BARELY ENOUGH FABRIC FOR IDENTIFICATION? You guessed it! Or didn't! I'm a forum post, not a mind reader! Anyway based on the bits of their gray robe scattered around the scene of the crime IT WAS A GRAY-ROBED FIGURE. OH NO! NOT A GRAY-ROBED FIGURE! WE HARDLY KNEW YE. The town is in a flurry of dismay! And murderthoughts. Flurries of them.

TURN YOUR MURDERTHOUGHTS LOOSE. LET THEM FLY FREE. DO NOT ALLOW THE KILLERS OF THE BELOVED A GRAY-ROBED FIGURE TO GO UNPUNISHED.

Hi! This is exciting! I am at the top of the alphabet!

Why Shoal in particular, Pistachi0n?

Because it's the beginning of the game, it was a playful vote meant to poke at them. Don't worry, I'll cast a real vote after I've heard from everyone.

Yes, this is unacceptable. Uppercase letters are clearly superior.

I don't know how my text editor does alphabetization but it might well have an ordering like that. I'll go fix it.

Huh, most computer alphabetization I’m familiar with either is indifferent with respect to case or puts all capitals before all lowercase. Maybe somebody is trying to send us a message. The gray-robed figures are pretty good at sorting and organization, maybe the victim rearranged Alicorn’s list.

I put the list in my text editor and told it to sort ascending and I didn't check what it spat out expecting it to be properly alphabetized, honest to THE COIN.
