And now Part 15 of the Traitor Game Essentials re-presentation of Traitor Game VI: Back to Basics. Here, the Traitors strike again, Ukyo writes a letter, and Meowth gets his pop cultural references confused.




Chris Lang 01-24-2007 09:00 PM

Ukyo watched silently as Moon Knight changed his vote. It appeared he had changed his attitude, as well.

Ukyo thought about what Moon Knight had said earlier. Were his criticisms valid? Did she really talk too much?

[I]What else is there to DO here most of the time other than talk?[/I] , Ukyo thought to herself. [I]We can vote, but otherwise no real action happens until Doom tells the Doom Squad it's time to kill someone[/I].

She really didn't like being told to dumb herself down. But that's what it sounded like Moon Knight was suggesting. Maybe she was being too much of a participant, but that had to be better than the other extreme. Where was the happy medium between the way she had been participating, and the non-participation of Power Girl, Chris Jericho, and the others?

She really didn't know. However, she did know that lately she'd only been repeating herself. [I]Enough already![/I], Ukyo told herself. [I]Everyone KNOWS you're not shedding any tears over the Shrike. Everyone KNOWS how disappointed you are in Moon Knight. No need to keep saying the same things three times in a row...[/I]

Ukyo was shaken out of her thoughts by the Undertaker's voting for Moon Knight. She realized she had to say something to Moon Knight. It was probably now or never.

"Moon Knight?" she said, a bit awkwardly. "I want to put this whole 'who's a traitor' thing aside for a moment."

"I'm sorry if I upset you. I don't think you're that bad a person, deep down. You just made some mistakes, that's all. I've made some mistakes, too. I don't care if you're a traitor or not. I want us to part company as friends. This may be goodbye. I just want to say thanks for helping Cologne. And thanks for trying to help me. At least you tried."

Ukyo really didn't know what else to say. She never was all that great with goodbyes.

[COLOR="Navy"]Ukyo, thanks for the honesty. I appreciate it. I'm sorry for being a jackass, but I hate having to live up to these kinds of expectations. Cologne told you of how I saved her. That's one good thing out of so many bad things I've done in my life. I stabbed a man in the face for attacking a friend of mine. I was a merc at one point in my life. I'm still trying to make peace with it and leave it in the past. Be careful in this game. You never know who's gonna be part of the squad. I promise you, though, that I am not one of them. I would never make that kinda promise unless I really felt it had to be said. I have less than 2 hours left here, so I guess we'll wait and see.[/COLOR]


tangentman 01-24-2007 10:24 PM

Mantis remained aloof during Jade's rebuttal. She still didn't trust the [I]vibrations[/I] she sensed from the necromancer. Still, any further spatting with the man was futile for now. Moon Knight was the most likely candidate for banishment now.

Approaching Ukyo and Moon Knight, Mantis spoke softly to them. [COLOR="Green"]"Remember that the moon must wane as often as it waxes. This is only a setback, not the end of the Moon Knight."[/COLOR] Lowering her voice, she added, [COLOR="green"]"If you are a member of Doom's Squad, then justice has been meted by the vote. If you are not, then know that This One will bide her time until she can find a way to see you freed."[/COLOR]


The Purple Skull 01-24-2007 10:28 PM

OOC: We're about an hour away until the next update. Last chance for all who didn't vote yet to cast their vote!

Voting Update 01 Joe Acro - Dr. Strange [Anthony Johanson] 01 Anthony Johanson - Jade Curtiss [tangentman] 02 Eternal Torment - Undertaker [Indigo Al, Weirdopky] 01 Superheroic - Captain America [moonknight2099] 05 Weirdopky - Moon Knight [Jeff-E, Kholdhearted, Deadpooligan, Superheroic, Eternal Torment] 01 Legato - Power Girl [Joe Acro] 01 Young Avenger - Chris Jericho [Pheonix-NoRelation] 01 Pheonix-NoRelation - Spider-Man [Chris Lang]

BIC: With the next banishment less than hour away, one of Dr. Doom's bots came by to serve the group a small snack.

Doombot-911: The lord and master of the universe noticed some of you were getting anxious, what with the next banishment close at hand. So he asked me to prepare you all a nice little snack. BLTs for everyone!

Captain America: I haven't had one of these since I went underground.

Beta Ray Bill: Ay...if there is something in the Midgard that can satiate my hunger, it is one of these BLTs.

Chris Jericho: Wait a minute. There is something weird with the taste.

Ukyo: You don't think Doom poisoned them, do you?

Chris Jericho: No. There's no bacon in this! There's no bacon in any of them!

Undertaker: Where the bacon, yo?

Moon Knight: This is not a BLT!

Doombot-911: Sure it is! [B]B[/B]read [B]L[/B]ettuce [B]T[/B]omato! Sounds like a BLT to me!

The ground begins to shake as Beta Ray Bill is angered by the contents of the "BLT".

BRB: Beta Ray Bill demands bacon! Thou hast soiled the art of making a BLT. And for that, retribution will be mine!

Doombot-911: Uh...somebody want to call 911 for me?

(Beta Ray Bill destroys Doombot-911)

From his control room, Dr. Doom is again seen observing the events.

[COLOR="Green"]Make a note of this. Next time I host a traitor game, do NOT skimp on the bacon. Also, remind me to send Beta Ray Bill the bill for those Doombots he's destroyed.[/COLOR]

Doombot-5.0: Yes, my lord.

[COLOR="Green"]Oh, and I shall appoint you as the one to send him the bill. Well I sure as hell was not going to do it. Did you see what he did to that Doombot?[/COLOR]

Doombot-5.0: [I]Sigh.[/I] Yes, my lord.


Crimson King 01-24-2007 10:46 PM

Kassad: I've been thinking about this banishment power. Why couldn't we all vote to banish Doom? that would end this game of his.

[QUOTE=Crimson King;4290170]Kassad: I've been thinking about this banishment power. Why couldn't we all vote to banish Doom? that would end this game of his.[/QUOTE]

"We can't." Ukyo said. "Doom's not one of the players, so no one can do anything to him until the game's over. I bet Moon Knight wanted to come to the rescue earlier, but something stopped him from showing up at Santa's workshop until that game was over."

"We're stuck here until we find out who the Traitors are, one way or the other."


The Purple Skull 01-24-2007 11:14 PM

Dr. Doom meets up with the rest of the group at the Hall of Doom. The next banishment was now!

[COLOR="Green"]So. Do you peasants think that you have found another of the traitors?[/COLOR]

Chris Jericho: Yes, we have Dr. Dumb.

[COLOR="Green"]That’s Doom you fool![/COLOR]

Chris Jericho: Well, Dr. Dumb, we believe that [B]Moon Knight[/B] is one of the Doom Squad members!

[COLOR="Green"]Very well.[/COLOR]

Moon Knight: Khonshu’s not going to like this.

(Moon Knight is banished)

[COLOR="Green"]Congratulations. You have found another traitor![/COLOR]

Ukyo: Excellent!

[COLOR="Green"]Sike![/COLOR]

Jeff-E: Not so excellent.

[COLOR="Green"]You simpletons have banished another innocent soul to Limbo. I would feel like crap if I kept making these mistakes. How do all sleep at night?[/COLOR]

Undertaker: I sleep in a casket.

[COLOR="Green"]....Uh...that was a figure of speech.... Anyway, I shall make my way to my living quarters. I will return when the Doom Squad strikes! HAHAHAHA![/COLOR]

Spider-Man: So how long before they strike again? 2 hours? 3 hours?

25 minutes later, Doom is heard over the loud speaker

[COLOR="Green"]Meet me in the Chapel of Doom.[/COLOR]

The group makes their way to the chapel. The room itself is one of the most beautifully designed rooms in the mansion. Around the room were various stained-glass windows depicting important events from Doom’s life.

[COLOR="Green"]The Chapel of Doom is truly a sight to behold, is it not? Each window displays my greatest victories. This one shows me defeating the Beyonder and taking his power during his little ‘Secret Wars’. This other window depicts the time I was victorious in the previous Traitor Game. This other window recounts the time I was a young lad, and soundly defeated Dan Hibiki in the Street Fighter tournament.[/COLOR]

What Doom failed to explain was the fact that many of these stained-glass windows either did not tell the entire story or were just plain lies.

[COLOR="Green"]I heard that, Mr. Narrator. You sir, have made a powerful enemy today....

Anyway, with all the beautiful windows here for your viewing pleasure, it is quite understandable why you fools have yet to realize that there is a dead body lying in the center of the chapel![/COLOR]

Doom was right. The group did, in fact, not know that another has fallen victim to the Doom Squad. This time, it was [B]Luffy[/B]!

[COLOR="Green"]Poor Luffy. The fool just did not have a chance. Sometime after the banishment, Luffy walked into the Chapel of Doom. He was in awe of the large stained glass ceiling depicting my final triumph over the accursed Fantastic Four, specifically that scoundrel Reed Richards! As he observed from the middle of the room, lightning caused the glass to be broken. This caused large sharp shards to fall on Luffy, cutting him up and decapitating him.[/COLOR]

Spider-Man: Poor guy.

[COLOR="Green"]Yes indeed. I guess he just could not ‘cut it’ in this game. Then again, he was not exactly the ‘sharpest’ knife in the drawer. You can also say, his dreams have been ‘shattered’ after today.[/COLOR]

(Silence from the group)

[COLOR="Green"]Bah! You all do not know humor if it bit you from behind! Go ahead and begin voting![/COLOR]


OOC: Voting starts now! Deadline is on Friday 11 PM ET. To the Secret Avenger: Send in your next guess ASAP.


The Purple Skull 01-24-2007 11:15 PM

Joe Acro 01-24-2007 11:25 PM

[i]Moon Knight was banished, but was innocent, which I had truly suspected all along. Luffy had been killed by lightning while in the chapel. This meant that the traitors were attempting to frame two people. Spider-Man had voted for Luffy twice. Luffy not being a traitor could have cast him in a bad light. Beta Ray Bill was the obvious choice for who could control lightning.

I immediately discounted those two, placing them with Dante. To determine the true culprit, I would need to think some more. I headed to my chambers to meditate for the night.[/i]


Indigo Al 01-24-2007 11:31 PM

[IMG]http://rzero.com/books/Prez1-logo.gif[/IMG]

Prez hung his head down in sorrow, reflecting on the senseless violence and the life that had just been lost.

[COLOR="red"]"I'm trying to do my best to fix this and come out with minimal loss of life, but I'm failing. How can I fix any more Americas if I can't even deliver you all safely from this situation?"[/COLOR]

He shook his fist up at Doom. [COLOR="red"]"Damn you, man. I thought Boss :) was the worst I ever had to face. I was able to forgive the insane woman who killed my Kathy, whom I loved more than anyone in the world.

I may just not be able to forgive YOU."[/COLOR]

He turned to Mantis. He admired her meditative, serene nature, even as he could tell that she was extremely dangerous should she put her mind to it. [COLOR="Red"]"Sister, you may well be right in your choice. If lightning is what killed Luffy, that's something Jade seems to be able to achieve."

"Yet we got Brother Beta Ray Bill, and I hate to say it - love your comic,man, total trip - Doctor Strange, who could also come up with that kind of feat.

Gonna think about it and let you all know soon."[/COLOR]


Weirdopky 01-24-2007 11:39 PM

After having been given a fake BLT, and having been banished and revealed as not being a traitor, MK had a few words.

[COLOR="Navy"]Some of you, I still feel anger towards. Cap, I can't believe you put your faith in Jeff. You should've trusted me. Doom, I wouldn't have eaten your BLTs anyway, cause I'm jewish. To all of you who accused me, I say congratulations. You wasted a vote. Now, Luffy's dead because of it, and at least two more of you will die. Have fun trying to survive. I'm gonna relax and wait this thing out.[/COLOR]

So, MK sat down and took a long nap.

Ooc-so, since i've been banished, i'm probably gonna have to take some time outside the game for a while. Sorry guys.


Anthony Johanson 01-24-2007 11:51 PM

Jade laughed, and replied:

"Well, looks like the traitors are bloody idiots, trying to implicate me, due to the speech I gave. I trust you all are of sound mind that we went 0 for 3 when someone had the obvious implication.

In short, before the fingers point my way, better think it through."

Chris Lang 01-25-2007 12:30 AM

Ukyo really didn't know how to react. "I wish I'd known him better." she said regretfully.

She wondered what was going to be done with Luffy's remains. Maybe the Doombots would clean things up. Or maybe the Undertaker would handle it. She didn't really want to drag any dead bodies to the freezer the way Cologne did in the other game.

Ukyo really didn't feel like talking about it right now. She decided now was the best time to go back to her room. If the Living Tribunal or the Rogue Watcher hadn't already delivered her letter to Cologne, she was going to have to revise a lot of it. A lot had changed since Darth Vader's banishment.

She went to her room, and looked at the letter. She had been careful to phrase things just right, just in case the wrong people found it and read it.

[QUOTE]Cologne, thanks for writing me. I wanted to get back to you sooner, but things just happen so fast around here.

This whole thing is such a nightmare. You may be right. I don't think a Traitor Game is the best way to decide the fate of the multiverse. I hope you and that King guy find some people to help you.

Dr. Doom's palace is a nice place. The Main Hall is really impressive. The kitchen might just put the one you had back at Santa's workshop to shame.[/QUOTE]

Ukyo went on for a bit describing how magnificent she found Doom's castle. She ended that portion by saying [I]'It's kind of a shame that people are killing each other in it. But this whole thing was at least partly Doom's idea, so he shouldn't blame any of us for the mess.'[/I]

The next portion of her letter described the people she had met so far. Some portions didn't really need revising. What she said about the Shrike still stood, even though the Shrike was no longer an active player in the game. But her perceptions of some of the others had changed since she had originally written the note. Ukyo quickly went to work revising the letter.

[QUOTE]Captain America seems like a real stand up guy, the sort who's willing to march into Hell and back for his beliefs. His only real problem is that he has what you might call an overly simplistic world view. I think he's starting to get better, though. He seems to be accepting that in these Traitor Games, you really can't tell who the good guys and the bad guys are. He voted for Moon Knight this last round.

Moon Knight was acting really strange a while back. Beta Ray Bill found a book in the library detailing the previous Traitor Game Moon Knight had been a player in. When we took a look at it, Moon Knight started bragging about how he'd won it single-handed. I only read that thing once myself, but I could tell he was exaggerating. Then he said a whole lot of other things I won't go into right now, but which made him look bad. That made Jeff and many of the others vote for him.

Moon Knight went to his room after I told him how disappointed I was in him. I don't know what happened, but he was nicer afterwards. He said he'd had an epiphany, and he apologized for how he'd acted. It was too late to save him, though. He ended up being banished. At least I got to say goodbye and thank him for saving you before it happened.

I don't know what to make of Mantis. She spends most of her time in meditative trances, and claims that flowers talk to her. She always speaks in the third person, and seems to know more than she's letting on. She seems to vote for that Jade guy every round. I suppose he's as good a choice as any, and she claims she has good reasons. But I don't know...

There are a few normal guys here who don't seem to have any superpowers or fighting skills at all. There's this Jeff-E, there's James Bond, there's this teenager who calls himself Prez, and there's this British guy who's called Dentarthurdent or something like that. Dent's been missing since before the first murder. I think by the time anyone finds him, it'll be too late to help him.

Jeff seems to be a nice guy. He's from this world where everyone here is a fictional character. He didn't seem to recognize me, but I'm sure you and I are both fictional characters in some anime or manga in the universe he comes from. Jeff and I laughed and joked about that a while back. He seems very perceptive. He was right that Wolverine wasn't one of the Doom Squad, and right in picking Darth Vader as a Traitor. But he was wrong about Moon Knight. I wonder how he'll take it.[/QUOTE]

Ukyo didn't feel like working on the letter any more right now. She shoved the letter in a desk drawer, and decided to rest for a bit. She could discuss the case some more with the others in the morning.


Chris Lang 01-25-2007 12:34 AM

[QUOTE=The Purple Skull;4290718]OOC: It's alright man. Glad you voted![/QUOTE]

Ukyo was a bit surprised by the Rogue Watcher's timing, but she had been trying to prepare herself for his questioning ever since the game had begun. She noted that Donald was still in his depressed state. She felt sorry for him, but she decided not to comment on it this time. Donald had made it clear that his problems were not any of the players' business.

"Okay...where do I begin?" Ukyo said. "For starters, I won't insult anyone's intelligence by claiming I wouldn't kill so-and-so because I'm not a killer outside the game. The Rogue Watcher reminded us the last time he visited that anyone can be a Traitor here, even those of us who aren't normally killers."

"Okay, I might as well start with the one most people were likely to blame me for. The Shrike. That thing STILL scares me! I wish there was some way to dispose of it AND that Tree of Pain for good. But let's face it. I'm sure the Shrike's scary to a lot of us. I don't know if the Traitors came up with that EMP idea on their own, or they panicked and asked Doom 'How the hell can we kill that thing?!?'. That's what I would have done, because I didn't have any good ideas on how to kill it myself."

"But I didn't. I don't know what the Shrike's made of, but I'm sure it has to be some sort of tough metal or something like that. My throwing spatulas are tough, but they're not tough enough to smash through something like that in seconds. I'd only get close enough to hit it with my battle spatula if I was really desperate, or sure Doom would heal me afterward. My battle spatula isn't like that Stormbreaker hammer or even Captain America's shield. It would have taken me a LOT longer than 'seconds' to even try to smash the Shrike."

"If anyone's taken the time to do their homework on me, they'd know that I couldn't bring down lightning either. So I couldn't have killed Luffy. And I don't think my little okonomiyaki tricks could have toppled that statue onto Kenshiro, either. I don't really know what to say about Batman and Kabuto. I'm a good fighter, but I'm no ninja. I don't think I'd be able to vivisect Kabuto as easily as we saw in that movie."

"And Batman...well, Doom may pick the killers, but if I heard right, it's the killers who pick the methods. If I had to kill him, I'd make it just a little less messy, and probably less painful for him. But that's just me."

Ukyo took a breath, then continued. "Anyway, I didn't kill any of those people. I want to help save our universes from Doom, and return home. I want to run Ucchan's Okonomiyaki in peace, with Ranma by my side, and not have to deal with power-mad monarchs in armor, spike-covered monsters, or 'Traitors' whose identities I don't know."

Ukyo paused. "I think I've said all I wanted to say for now. Is that okay?"

[QUOTE=Moon Knight;4290474][COLOR="Navy"]Some of you, I still feel anger towards. Cap, I can't believe you put your faith in Jeff. You should've trusted me.[/COLOR][/QUOTE]

Cap listened to Moon Knight's rant. He still didn't get it. "Moon Knight, how could I trust you? You may have switched your vote in the end but you still voted for me. At least Jeff had been making intelligent informed decisions. Plus I agreed with Jeff's call for solidarity in the voting. You left me no choice but to vote for you. For what its worth, at least you are out of reach of the Doom Squad."

Cap went back to examine the spot where Luffy was killed. The body was still there, the blood now coagulating on the marble floor. Luffy had been shredded by the falling glass, his head quite a bit farther away from the rest of the body, as if it...bounced?...away. Cap could see the lightning scorches across the floor but couldn't tell if the lightning had originated from inside the room or outside.

Captain America steeled himself, he needed to be prepared for the next banishment and the Doom Squad's next kill. He strode from the Cathedral.

Columbo studies his notes and walks over to Beta Ray Bill

"Excuse me Mr... uh hum I don't think I took down your name. With so many interesting people here, I guess I missed you when I questioned the others. Maybe you could help me out. You seem to know a few of the people here. I'm at a bit of a disadvantage not knowing hardly anyone. I was just wandering if you knew, out of the people here who could cause lighning to stike? Something like that should narrow the suspect list down a little. If you can back to me later on that I'd appreciate it."


Columbo starts to walk off toward some of the other guest. Then he turns and says to Beta Ray Bill "Sorry I completely forgot, just one more thing. I don't know much about you. I see you have a large hammer, but what exactly are your powers? I mean you look like your probably a super hero or something, so you obviously have some kinda ability. Anyway sorry to take up your time just get back with me later. If you dont mind."

Then he walks off toward the kitchen to get something to eat.


Jeff-E 01-25-2007 09:45 AM

Moon Knight wasn't one of the traitors, and I led the charge against him. I felt awful about it, and it kind of shook my nerves a little. I approached the T.V. where those banished communicate with the rest of us:

"First off, Moonie, if you can hear me I'm sorry brother, really, I made a huge mistake, and, I'm just sorry."

I turned back to the group:

"I'm sorry to the rest of you as well, I was so sure and I led you all down the wrong path. I do however still believe in solidarity and when it comes to figuring out who the traitors are I think we need to look at all the murders and not just remember the most recent. Bats murder is still something that bothers me, most of the people who are capable of that paticular crime are gone. Vader could have easily moved the statue to crush his victim, another was beaten to death rather violently and now the Luffy fellow has been struck by lightning. At least two of these crimes do point to one person, but I need to think about it before casting a vote right now."


Superheroic 01-25-2007 10:15 AM

Captain America caught Jeff's eye and saluted the man, letting him know that there was nothing to forgive.

"We all make mistakes, Jeff." Ukyo said gently. "I've made plenty of them myself."

"Maybe Mantis is right. Maybe when this is over, we'll be able to free Moon Knight from that Limbo. Until then, we owe it to him to get the right guy this time."

Ukyo turned to the plasma screen. She didn't know if there was just one plasma screen that followed them around, or if Doom had several set up in every place they were likely to gather, but it didn't matter. She had something to say to Moon Knight.

"Moon Knight, if you're listening, try not to be too upset with everyone. They made a mistake. It's easy to make mistakes in these games. And if you see that Rorschach and Captain Universe again, try not to be so hard on them. Next time you all could be on the same side."

Ukyo turned to the group. "I don't know who to vote for yet. I jumped to conclusions with the Shrike, and I don't want to make the same mistake again."

The Undertaker stood up straight and spoke to the other players.

"[I]I may sometimes use lightning as my medium, but I mainly use sheer strength and psychology to overwhelm my opponents. But that does not matter. Right now, the traitor must be found. It is somebody who can wield lightning, such as Beta Ray Bill or Dr. Strange. And if I remember correctly, Dante has a sword that has the element of electricity.[/I]"

[I]Aftah seein' what happened ta dat Luffy charactah-- I dinnit catch who dey wuz-- I t'ink Luffy wuz a vampiah slayah, but I could be t'inkin' a' someone else... I was soiten dat da one responsible fer da lightnin' weren't anyone da others knew. Dere could be only one bein' wit' enough electricity ta do whut wuz done ta Luffy. It hadda have been...

PIKACHU!

I wuz undahstandably horrified an' ran screamin' outta da chapel. I hadda get back to da room where I found dose robot parts-- if dat twoip's Pikachu did follow me ta dis crazy place, I wuz gonna be ready!!![/I]

OCC: I'm sorry that I have missed 3 voting rounds. I'm having computer problems (It can't find the operating system). My dad took it to a friend of his to get it fixed and it hasn't come back yet. In the meantime, anyone is welcome to use my character until I make my return.


Schornforce 01-25-2007 06:01 PM

[I]As I wuz woikin' in da robot parts room, I decided ta chow down on alla' da leftovah BLT sammiches dose Doombots made fer us. Da otha guests wuz grumblin' cuz da sammiches didn't have no bacon in 'em, but dey wuz still way bettah den any'tin' Jessie could cook.

As I wuz woikin' on a secret plan or two, I gots ta thinkin'... I wuz so confuzzled before dat I dinnit come up wit' a vote fer da previous banishment. If I had-- mebbe I coulda stopped more bad stuff from hap'nin. I felt kinda bad fer dat Moon Knight guy. Anyone who patterns demselves aftah da moon can't be all bad... aftah all, it's so round an' pretty, I'd do it myself if I wuzn't comftable as I am.

My plan didn't take too long, since I gots' lotsa experience woikin' wit' robots an' stuff when Jessie, James, an' I are aftah dat twoipy kid's Pikachu-- true dey ain't nevah woiked before, but like dey say-- 'da 397,486th time's da charm!' I squoilled (squirreled) my new creations away, in case I need 'em. One if any'tin happens ta me-- da otha' if I needs ta use it against dat electric rodent (or on da off chance it's someone else, ta defend myself from whoevah dey may be).

Once I'd done alla' dat, I headed back ta da group. Hmm... if it ain't dat rotten bum, Pikachu, I'd bettah be careful. I don't wanna be in whatevah sammich dose Doombots make next...

Ukyo smiled as Meowth showed up to rejoin the group. Somehow, that Pokemon creature always managed to make her smile.

"Hi, Meowth." she said. "Do you have any ideas as to who might have done it? I have a few, but I'd like to hear what the others think."

OOC: Loved the 'Luffy the Vampire Slayer' line. :)


Schornforce 01-25-2007 06:23 PM

"Hiya, Ukyo!" I said wit' a grin.

"I gotta sneakin' suspicion dat my advoisary follahed me here ta dis place. Y'see, he t'rows thundahbolt attacks around alla' da time. I'd bet da charm on my forehead dat Pikachu follahed me here an' is doin' alla' dis shameful stuff! No one kin t'row electric attacks like him. True, he ain't been dis brutal before, but if he's undah Doom's control, I'd bet my nine lives he'd blast us all wit' his scary thundah moves! Plus, he has some real strong non-electric attacks, so mebbe he hoit alla 'dem otha' guys too! I wouldn't put anyt'in past him!"

  • shudder*


"(I'm whisperin' here) but... otha' than him, dat Doctah Strangeoid charactah didn't evah really answer my questions to him... plus I gotta sneakin' suspicion dat he could really mimic any attack dat's been done. So, yeah, if I wuzn't soiten Pikachu wuz da culprit, I'd vote fer dat [B]Doctah Strangeoid[/B] fella. (no more whisperin'-- I'm back ta my old, screechy voice!) Don't worry, tho'! I gots a plan in store if we need it! I'll finally show dat Pikachu who's da boss! (OOC: Tony Danza?)

also OOC: Thank you. Meowth is all about 'da woidplay.'

[i]Upon returning from my chambers, I voted based on the conclusion I had reached.

[b]"I think the events and Mantis's logic have affected me. My vote is for [COLOR="Red"]Jade[/COLOR]. He can generate electricity. He has the cunning to coordinate the strikes."[/b][/i]


Anthony Johanson 01-25-2007 06:55 PM

Jade just sighed, and replied:

"What a glorious revelation Strange, some would say almost opportunistic in nature. One wonders why you did not jump on the Jade bandwagon during the last murder, when Mantis's revelations were at their supposed peak. You say I could co-ordinate the attacks, well, that part is true, but you could just as well. Methinks this is to get the suspicion off your back.

Besides, I have the sneaking suspicion that you have been the brains behind this operation, you sure as heck have the versitility to mimic this attack also.

[B]Dr.Strange[/B], you're a traitor."

Ukyo had her doubts about Meowth's suspicions. Both the suspicion he had said out loud and the suspicion he whispered.

"I hate to say this, Meowth, but I don't think Pikachu did this." Ukyo replied. "It just wouldn't be fair if someone who wasn't even a player turned out to be one of the Traitors. Unless someone here's secretly Pikachu in disguise, but I doubt it."

"Meowth, I told you about Kodachi Kuno, right? The crazy girl back home? She's got a brother who's also not playing with a full deck. His name's Tatewaki Kuno. He's a kendo practioner, and likes to boast about how great he is. Sometimes, when he's making one of his pretentious speeches, lightning flashes in the background. I don't know how he does it. If he were here, he'd be on my suspect list, but he isn't here. And neither is Pikachu."

Ukyo quickly changed the subject. "Beta Ray Bill's the obvious choice. Maybe he's a little too obvious. Doom may have sent those Doombots to provoke Beta Ray Bill into smashing them, so we'd think he's the one who smashed the Shrike. After we almost voted off the Shrike because Doom set him up, I don't know if I can trust any hints Doom gives us."

"I don't know about the Undertaker. I thought all that 'dark side' stuff was just a gimmick. Then again, maybe this is an Undertaker from some alternate universe where he really does have supernatural powers. He named Dante as a suspect, but he hasn't voted yet."

"I don't know about Dr. Strange. If he were one of the Doom Squad, why did he talk us out of voting for the Shrike?"

"Maybe Mantis is right. Maybe Jade's one of the Traitors after all. I just don't know if he can do lightning tricks, so I'm not about to 'jump on the Jade bandwagon' yet."

Ukyo turned to Jade. "Jade, we know you can make clones or something. Can you tell us what else you can do?"


tangentman 01-25-2007 07:04 PM

[COLOR="Green"]"Perhaps your feigned boredom is merely a cover for your own guilt? This One questions your circular methods of argument against Strange."[/COLOR] Mantis didn't let Jade's attacks against her competence bother her. The woman chosen to bear and raise the Celestial Messiah was above such pettiness.

A cryptic smile then played over her lips. [COLOR="green"]"Still, This One does not rely only on her theory about Jade. She has [i]other[/i] prospects in mind as probable suspects."[/COLOR] Mantis looked toward the group, but at nobody in particular. At least it appeared that way.


The Purple Skull 01-25-2007 07:08 PM

Hey guys. Slight change in the banishment schedule. I'll be going home for the weekend tomorrow, and I am not sure if I'll have internet access. If I don't post an update tomorrow at the usual time, then the voting deadline will be extended to sunday at 11 pm et, where we'll have the next banishment and kill as well. Sorry for the inconvenience. Hope you all understand!

Before Jade replied, I spoke up, "Mebbe yer right about my suspicious, Ukyo, but we do seem ta agree on one t'ing-- dat Boogey-ray Dill guy seems ta be gettin' da big set-up. Wit' da lightnin' an' smashin' it seems too poifect-- jus' like it did wit' Needle Noggin. Even tho' it ain't what any of us wanna do, fer now, we'll jus' haveta wait an' see-- I may haveta rethink about dese culprits, but I'd need some convincin' foist."


Deadpooligan 01-25-2007 07:44 PM

"[B]Ah, so the traitors thought lightning would throw suspiscion on me? I laugh at them. Do they not know I am the oath brother of Thor, God of Thunder?[/B]"

Bill was furious at this. So furious in fact, a Doombot spontaneously combusted out of fear.

"[B]What of this [U]Dante[/U]? Dost he not have control of lightning to a degree with his sword?[/B]"


Anthony Johanson 01-25-2007 07:57 PM

Jade shrugged his shoulders, and stated:

"If I have to, I will reveal my capabilities. Along with creating clones, I have some offensive magic capabilities. I have the capability, for Lightning, Fire, Earth, Wind, that sort of magic. Nothing to the level of Doc Strange. To add on, I have a spear that I keep inside my body via a 'contamination effect'. Which throws Luffy's murder out of my hands, as I could have just as easily decapitated him with that, without the theatrical lightning bolt."



RUMINATIONS: And here we begin the great 'lightning wielder' debate, with five characters we know could have brought down lightning. Be glad no players chose to play as Storm, Pikachu, and others or else we'd have REALLY been confused here.

Ukyo's letter continues throughout this round. I thought it made sense for Ukyo to write a letter home, since she doesn't know what's going to happen or how this is going to turn out.

The re-presentation continues in Part 16.
