WOW. Ok, I had this post typed up for RP purposes in the doc..., please enjoy:
The Deep One smirked. “Rathinald here.” Little things like that always put these foolish villagers at ease. Clearly no one with such a discernible personality tick like that could be dangerous. After all the years of destroying little villages like this, reaping the rewards of ‘catching’ the perpetrators, and then moving on, no one had ever suspected him. No one had ever really been clued into the fact that no matter what happened, cults...disappearances...hauntings...Rathinald was always available, for a moderate fee befitting his professional status and record of success of course, to come in and save these poor villages. The key was always making sure that it was ever so slightly different from village to village. With this one, he’d gone back to the old ways...the days of fire, blood, and fanatical loyalty. It had been years since he’d been able to enjoy a devoted cultist throwing herself on the fire to further his ends. The fact that this woman had begun as a kindly old grandmother had made the flames so much more sweet and satisfying.
These villagers had proven slightly more annoying than his normal situation. They’d actually come close to catching him this time around. He hadn’t planned on it, but he let himself fully indulge. It had been a long time since he’d allowed himself to completely destroy a village down to the last man, woman, and child. This would be a stain on Rathinald’s name, but perhaps Rathinald had been TOO perfect. Perhaps the fact that Rathinald had always managed to save these villages had caused this suspicion. This should remedy that. The Deep One Smirked. “Rathinald here.”
So, please don't make fun of me too much for my 20 pages of raving madness in the elim doc. This game was incredibly entertaining and challenging. Thanks to Elandera for putting it on!
So, my thoughts:
@ILuvHats - We did it! Thanks for being around enough to submit those vote manipulations! Those were clutch!
@xinoehp512 - in response to your post that just ninjaed me, if you take a look at my rantings once the elim doc is out, you'll see that you had a very real chance of winning that game. I (and Hats) had a lot of lucky rolls late in that game.
@Devotary of Spontaneity - I played so much IKYK with myself trying to determine whether you'd take advantage of me giving you my entire strategy via PM...
@Elbereth - great job coming in as a sub late in the game and surviving...and surviving...and clearly seeing that I was the elim from the start. (And great timing on the ninja as I'm typing this line right as you post)
@Sart - Thanks for being a great one-turn teammate!
@Fifth Scholar - Great playing with you as elim. Your sacrifice was quite timely and definitely gave me a fun bit of RP for my above post.
To everyone else, hope this was a fun one!
