  1. Before the assembled squires stands a stern woman who has introduced herself as Brightness Kenara. “Welcome to Squadron Alpha,” she says. “You have been chosen as members of Alethkar’s first attempt to train Knights Radiant as warriors for the glory of the Almighty. A test group, as it were. You could become the legendary first squadron in a line of hundreds. “That, or you become a failure forever forgotten to history. Up to you.” There are murmurs. “Silence,” she says. “I’m not done. While you’ll be sent into the field soon enough, for now you’re only training. Specifically, rather than individuals, you have to learn to function as a single, coherent unit. “To that end, each recruit will step forward. List your name, previous occupation, and and anything else you think it’d be useful for the squadron to know.” She looks at the person at the end of the line. Welcome to QF25: A Sundered Sky! Housekeeping No minimum of votes to lynch; tied vote results in a coinflip. I will take writeup requests, both in the form of full completed writeups and anything the player wishes included upon his or her death. On a similar note, if you are certain that you will not RP, tell me so that I can use your character in the writeups at my discretion. PMs are completely open. They can be sent at any time to anyone, including group PMs. (The only rule is that you cannot add players to already extant PMs.) Rollover is tentatively set to occur at 9pm PDT / 5am BST. There is a 2-cycle inactivity filter. If you do not post or PM for 2 cycles without explanation, you will be killed. Factions Squires: Village faction. Must kill all Skybreakers to win. Skybreakers: Eliminator faction with a doc to communicate, and a kill each turn. Must kill or outnumber all Squires to win. Roles Lightweaver: You may protect one person from attacks every cycle, through changing their appearance to look like something else. Elsecaller: You may survive one attack or lynch, through transporting yourself somewhere slightly less dangerous. Stoneward: You may use your surge of Cohesion to make a player change their vote to any player who has already been voted on. Dustbringer: You may use your surges of Division and Abrasion to knock out a player for a cycle, rendering them unable to vote (though they may still take actions). New Recruit: You are too new to being a squire to have any powers which you can actually use yet, but you’re learning. You may be of any order (and I will accept requests), but have no other actions. Truthless: You want to die. Specifically, you want everyone else to come together to kill you, because that is what you deserve. Your win condition is to be lynched. However, anyone who votes on you the cycle you are lynched is attacked. Quick Links:
  2. QF25: Hour 7 - Killing Noon The circle is smaller now. Much, much smaller. “What if we were to just wait?” Brightlord Erethin says softly. “Have the others dealt with by other people?” Everyone stares at him. “What if what?” Damond says. “What kind of storming idea is that?” “Uh. A sensible one?” Erethin responds. “You’re just trying to get away, aren’t you,” accused another member of the circle. “You want time to pass so you can get away, run off and kill even more people.” “I just want to survive?” “Of course. Because you’re a storming murderer. The mob had practice now with killings. This one was fast. Almost fast enough, in fact, to prevent Alrin from dying. Instead, they finished just as he hit the floor, eyes black as a void. Yitzi was lynched! He was a New Recruit studying Windrunning! Arinian was killed! He was a Stoneward! Cycle 7 has begun! It will end in 24 hours. Vote Count >Yitzi (4): Lopen, Mage, Eternum, Winter >Sart (4): Arinian, Jondesu, Yitzi, Sart >Lopen (1): DA >Roadwalker (1): Ecth Player List 1. Elithanathile - Sebas 2.

  3. QF25: Hour 4 - Attacking 9 a.m. The assembled crowd approached Spiff. Slowly. Despite his open-door policy, they had a sense that there was more to him than there appeared. He addressed them, still reading over the papers in front of him "Yes? I assume this is serious? You know I don't deal with the other sort of matters." He highlighted his point by flipping a dagger casually in one hand, while viciously penning his signature with the other. "I have a lot of paperwork to do. You see, running an organization isn't all fun and games." He looked up suddenly, catching Ardent Sartal's eye. "You know what I'm talking about, don't you, 'ardent'?" Sartal stared ahead stolidly. There was just something about that commanding voice. Something that would make you do 50 pushups or go on a 10 mile run before breakfast. "I don't know what you're talking about, sir." "No, you wouldn't. Nobody expects an ardent, after all. They're beneath notice. So beneath notice, in fact, that they could murder a squadleader in front of a whole platoon without anybody noticing." The man made no sense. He was clearly in league with the enemy All those songs and group exercises were just a diversion to distract them from the real threat. Ardent Sartal cleared his throat. "We'd like to, I mean, we're going to lynch you now." "Hmm?" "We're going to lynch you now, sir." Spiff's eye glinted. "No, I don't think you will." He leapt to his feet and deftly span through the assembled crowd, tripping half of them in a single movement. Brightlord Erethin narrowed his eyes. "You missed everyone important, Spiff. And you are not my captain. Everyone! He's given us as much as a confession already! Take him down quickly! Before he summons his full potential!" "Too slow!" Spiff spun in the air, the light of a knight radiant glowing around him. He thrust a hand towards Tzlim and the man fell to the ground, wincing at the abrasion of the rough tent floor. Spiff grinned. "Just 4 left." He divided his attention between them, and settled for dashing at Atela. A brick caught him on the side of the head, and he fell to the floor. Sebas stood nervously as Spiff fell to the ground. "That was the right thing to do, right? I mean, he was saying all those things about me, and he tried getting us to do pushups, and-" Sartal patted him on the shoulder. "You did all right, kid. Let's see if we can find some evidence in that mess of his office." He frowned, looking around. "Actually, this is Kenara's office. I don't know how we let him take over that easily." Credit goes to PK for his death RP. Find a post and upvote him for it. Revali stumbled in the chaos of Spiff’s lynching and fell to the floor. He caught a glimpse of a figure above him, though his vision was blurred from the fall. A chill ran through his bones, and he felt a woosh of air rush past him. When he opened his eyes, the figure was gone, and this time no one but Spiff had died. PK was killed! He was a Dustbringer! Lopen was attacked, but didn’t die! Cycle 4 has begun! It will end in 23 hours. This cycle is an hour shorter, because I won’t be around at or after rollover tomorrow.

  4. QF25: Hour 3 - Sticking 8 a.m. The bodies have all finally been removed, but the scent of death hangs in the air. Everyone stands in a circle, looking at each other, afraid to turn their back. And slowly, slowly, it happens again. Naihar and Lorna, still watching, both nod. They’ve seen this before. Suspicion. It was someone in this room. Not me. Wasn’t me. But it had to have been someone. Was it you? Or you? You don’t seem to be acting quite right… you look nervous… well of course I’m nervous four people just died. What about you? Or you? Doesn’t matter who. Just anyone. Anyone but me. If there were someone who could see emotion, the room would be swirling shades of grey paranoia, oily suspicion, and black fear, gathering, gathering, into a great cloud of near-madness. Tension builds. Questions become sharper, less forgiving. What were you doing near Aaliyah in the pile? I thought you were just ahead of me when we were getting spheres from Brightness Kenara? How, exactly, did you get invited here? Why do you look so treelike? How do we know you’re loyal to Alethkar? And there it is. The first “we”. That turns the tide. Everyone thinks that they’re trusted, that they’re in the right and whoever they suspect is wrong. The original perfect circle is a cluster, a mob, a storm of shouts and accusations and- They decide. We decide. And Dan falls, crushed by something that is more than suspicion, now. Crushed by the fear of death. He chokes out four last words as he dies. “I am a stick…” And slowly, everything grows quiet again. The shouting stops. Dan is dead. And so is Zirconidas, killed in the chaos, eyes black. The bodies are taken away. The circle reforms. This time, the storm of suspicion and fear and paranoia is tinged with the orange hint of shame. Megasif has died! He was a New Recruit studying Edgedancing! Stick was lynched! She was a New Recruit! Cycle 3 has begun! It will end in 24 hours.

  5. QF25: Hour 2 - Falling 7 a.m. Spiff slowly gets up from the ground. Aaliyah doesn’t seem to notice, absorbed in prayer as she is, but there’s no one else close enough to have tripped him. “Aaliyah?” She inclines her head to him, but continues her prayers. “Fine then,” Spiff says, grinning. He hooks a foot under one of her legs and yanks. She stumbles. “Not fair!” cries Johnny Quick, and Spiff feels his own leg yanked again, falling atop Aaliyah. This seems to create a chain reaction. Each recruit, losing some of the stress from the two dead bodies in the room, trips or is tripped by another until every person alive is in a massive pile atop Aaliyah. Spiff smells blood. He can barely breathe with the weight of the pile atop him, but he manages to croak out, “Guys? Um. I think someone’s dead.” That causes chaos. Those on top scramble away hastily, while those below struggle and attempt to get away while running into everyone else. In the end, Johnny Quick is found to have been crushed by the weight of the mob. He technically still breathes, but his ever waking is uncertain. A servant takes him away. Everyone shifts, looking at each other. They all know that it’s their fault he died. What they don’t find for a few minutes is that someone is missing from that circle. Aaliyah seemed alive when everyone stood up, but she didn’t follow them, and when someone asks if she’s okay, she doesn’t respond. Gingerly, her body is turned over, and the dagger which was inserted into her ribs falls out enough to let blood pool around her. Drake has died! He was a New Recruit studying Elsecalling. Flash was lynched! He was a New Recruit studying Dustbringing. Cycle 2 has begun! It will end in 24 hours. PMs will be out shortly.

  6. QF25: Hour 1 - Breaking 6 a.m. Kenara frowns. It seems her tactic of letting them get to know each other by introducing themselves has gone slightly further than she intended. Members of the squadron are yelling and even fighting in multiple cases. It seems the soldiers she’s been given are… not quite the quality she’s accustomed to. There are a fair few with whom she will need to have a word in private. “Silence,” she finally says. Her voice echoes through the arena. “This is a squadron, not a gathering of gossipers. Talk later. Pay attention now.” “And who are you, Brightness?” Damond asks with a smirk. She raises an eyebrow. “I am your commander, and a full Radiant. That should be enough of an introduction.” The recruits are, finally, somewhat quiet. “Very well. The first lesson you must learn, for those of you who do not know, is how to gather Stormlight. Everyone take a sphere, please.” She holds out a bag of them, all charged in the last Highstorm. “And if a single one goes missing, we’re doing nothing but basic physical training for the next week.” As the squadron formed a clump around Kenara, each person picking out their sphere carefully, there is a thump. Draen gasps, an arrow sticking out of his chest. He falls to his knees first, and then slumps all the way to the ground, paying no heed to the shock of everyone around him. Kenara drops her bag of spheres, ridding her hands of the encumbrance, and summons her Shardblade. She looks up at where the arrow had come from. Draen’s already gone, and he hasn’t been able to use Stormlight before - without even a bonded spren to help, she doubts he could breathe it in before he dies completely. His killer, though… The arena surrounding them is empty, including the tops of it. Kenara frowns and kneels beside Draen for a moment, to look at the arrow with which he’s been killed so effectively. Slowly, she topples onto him. A spren, unnoticed in the chaos, trickles away from her body. When the first squire is finally sensible and brave enough to look, they see that her eyes are burned and black. “So… what now?” says a small voice. Lorna smiles grimly at Draen’s body. The chaos she’s caused is amusing, and perhaps will prove enough to recover the body soon, before the head begins to deteriorate. In the meantime, she is content to watch the idiots squabble about what to do with their dead leader. Draen (Haelbarde) has died! He was a New Recruit with a valuable head! Brightness Kenara (Wilson) has died! She was a Radiant Elsecaller! Cycle 1 has begun! It will end in 24 hours. PMs are now out. PM me if you don't have one. Clarifications: Lightweavers cannot protect the same person two turns in a row. Due to later game balance thoughts, the no-secret-alignment-or-role question is now a PAFO. Player List 1.
