Quick Fix 43 Aftermath: Sole Survivor

While there had been no one sacrificed last night, the remaining trappers couldn't say whether there were any followers left among them. Shard realized there was only one way he could be sure that he survived. He would have to convince one to help throw the other in the snow, bolt the door, and quickly stab the other in the back. That was the only way he could be sure he was safe. 

"So Zillah," he began "I think we can be sure that Ezira is the cultist, since we both have proven ourselves rulos. I can't get rid of him without your help and I'm sure he is the last follower!"

Zillah seemed unsure.

Ezira laughed from the doorway to the kitchen. "I see what is going on here. Zillah, you can't trust him. He is clearly just trying to get you to kill me so he can kill you." 

Zillah began to hear doubts welling in her mind.

"He is lying." Shard sent. "He cannot be trusted. We must send him out."

"Get out of my head!" Zillah wailed.

Ezira wasn't sure what was going on, but he knew better than to waste this opportunity. 

Zillah rushed at Shard tackling him to the floor. Ezira ran to the door. "We have to get rid of him! Quick!" Shard freed his arms and pushed Zillah off. Ezira dove onto the pile and Zillah grabbed a nearby pillow. Shaking off the pillowcase they tied Shard's hands behind his back. Shard began to laugh hysterically.

"haahhahahahahahahahahahhaaaaaaaaaaa! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA! Well played you fools! I don't know which of you is the last cultist. Maybe it's both! Either way, you have won! May the gods have mercy on my soul for the murders I have committed! May you suffer for all you have put me through! You and all your fellows!" His shouting cut off as they through him into the snow, hands still bound. The door slammed shut behind him. Finally they were safe. 

Zillah let out a sigh of relief. She turned to see Ezira smiling... Except it wasn't Ezira anymore. His features distorted and he glowed slightly.

"Finally," he gloated "I have been found worthy of the mysteries!" 

He stabbed her. The shocked look froze on her face as she died. 

---

A week later Ezira emerged into spring sunlight. Fully enlightened and ready to teach others the ways of Jesker. Of course there would have to be more sacrifice. The only way to learn was to experience. He left hopefully.  Near the entrance, still frozen in the snow were Shard's last message

 

Money helps us Rulo's do anything we want,

We can buy with it, bribe with it,

We can bet on fights and dice,

And win a lot more coins from it,

But most of all we can use it, for banding all together,

And beating all those Foll'wers of Mysteries

A close game! Maybe next game I'll survive to see my own victory.

That was a VERY close game, I was sure that I was toast in the last cycle. I'm quite interested in why Zillah chose to vote on Experience. Honestly Experience, you played a very good game at the end there, you had me practically dead to rights.

Wow. Congrats elims. @Kynedath, it wasn't until that last cycle I was alive that I started to suspect you at all. Just wish I would have left my vote on you. :P

@The_God_King, you also did well! If it weren't for Tess, I likely would have kept believing you for a few cycles. Also, the attempt to make me look suspicious was a very good play.

Thank you @Elkanah for this great game! I really enjoyed it. Boy was it close though. I thought that we had won until Zillah posted that her vote was on me THREE minutes before the cycle ended.

Good job @DeTess for figuring out the God King, It was the turning point in the game.

Kynadeth, great job. It wasn't until the very end that I was sure that it was you. Also, @Kynedath Was I right about you not seeing Zillah's vote until it was too late? 

@Zillah, I am also wondering what made you choose to place your vote on me?

Thanks, though there was quite a bit of luck involved in that. I had some minor suspicions of them, but it was only when they made that claim to me that I became really suspicious, and then only because I knew I was already a priest.

Speaking of luck, I had the most dreadful luck in my scans. First I scanned Devotary, who got promptly killed, and then Sart, who also got killed the cycle after, stopping me from establishing any form of trust network.

@Kynedath, you did a pretty good job of remaining below suspicion for me, btw. I don't think you ever really stood out to me in a bad way while I was still alive.

Also, @EXPERIENCE, it was pretty nice playing with you. You pretty  active and not really afraid to get stuck in, which is allways a good trait to have in this game.

Sweet, It took my a while to come up with something that would actually be plausible.
