Death of the Silversmith

Steering clear of the fumes and silver dust of the workshop itself, the curled figures lie in wait in the alleyway opposite, waiting for Spikebrennan to extinguish his candles and leave for the night. As he turns to lock the old wooden doors, a whirl of teeth and claws blur out across the open street, performing the quickest of kills before the metal’s influence can affect them.

Spikebrennan the silversmith is dead.

This will certianly make aaronwinborn suspect… after the bold accusations against him by the deceased.

At the last call, all was well at night. Only 4 living villagers were active (assuming my timestamps reading is correct) after that post.

Myself, Oracular rufio, Tiberias, and Rodlen. These could have seen the post, then changed thair target if they were a werewolf. Of course, this does not mean that a werewolf did not some other way find out that all was well.

These are just an alchemists musings.

Amnistar was also killed after he accused Bucky, and Bucky turned out to be innocent.  I think one of the werewolves may just like to frame people.

- arronwinborn voted for on the proposal to lock him up
- that proposal was made during the daytime, and just a little while ago, Kevan posted that no one had been killed so far.  Spike wasn’t targeted immediately after making the town meeting, or at least not by both werewolves.
- the rolling news proposal is probably partially responsible for this

In any case, if arron is a werewolf, we’ll have a 50% chance to see it once that town meeting passes.

Good point also, chivalry.  That also means that unless the werewolf is you, there are at least three of them, because all of the rest of those people were added after the initial roll.

But they could still be a werewolf, just a small chance. I’m not a werewolf, though, so it wasn’t me.

Oracular rufio:

I’m not either.  Though I suppose claiming not to be a werewolf is hardly going to be real proof since everyone will do it.

Also, Shadowclaw posted a comment 12 minutes after this post showed up, and someone could easily have seen the blog entry but not made any posts to the blog to indicate that they were active.

Well, I was looking at Last Visit… and that assumes the werewolf who changed their target did not find a way around getting stamped as recently visited.

The title of this made me think, though: it’s too bad that clerical professions can’t be killed; we could wind up with a post titled “Death comes for the Archbishop”.

Well, I use public computers to come here quite a bit, and when I do so I am never logged in by default.  All you have to do is delete cookies/history or use a computer without the cookies/history on it.

Or browser.

On a related note, we are now fresh out of silver bullets, barring a town meeting.  Not that they actually do anything yet.


03-11-2007 19:33:04 UTC

Not unless we get some guns. in the hands of the people.


03-11-2007 19:42:09 UTC

This is bad.  Another dead guy.  Yeah, there probably is a werewolf that likes framing people.


03-11-2007 19:45:43 UTC

Oh, phooey.


03-11-2007 19:47:26 UTC

And worst of all, a dead guy with a special ability.


03-11-2007 19:53:17 UTC

Hmm… currently, unless they can give up an occupation while dead, according to the rules, no one can take over a deceased occupation.

Oracular rufio:

03-11-2007 19:55:49 UTC

Well, there are other occupations that can make silver bullets.

You know what this means, though?  We can have a seance today.

I had posted a Will on the wiki.  Can it be given valid effect or not?

Oracular rufio:

03-11-2007 20:23:04 UTC

We repealed that rule.  Now you have to tell your will to the solicitor, and we never got one.
