And now Part 9 of Traitor Game Essentials, where the group ponders who might have committed the latest Traitor acts. Is the Shrike responsible, or is he too obvious? Meanwhile, the Vader of the group acts very weird...

Captain America strode confidently where the others had gathered. "Ok people, listen up. I know we banished the wrong man earlier tonight. I know we lost the Vigilante too, one of the few people who could actively help us. I know things look bleak. But it doesn't have to be. I've been in tougher situations than this. It's still early in the game. The Doom Squad is bound to slip up. Maybe they already had," Cap looked from the Shrike, to Doctor Strange, to the frozen in time Hulk and Power Girl. "I'm not ready to make accusations just yet but this is what I have been thinking."

"The statue that killed Kenshiro is huge and it almost certainly would take someone with super strength to move it. I think we need to look to those suspects. Then there was another death by bladed weapons." Cap pointed at the being known as the Shrike. "Whatever that thing is, its remorseless. It doesn't give a damn about us and doesn't care whether we live or die. That I know for sureAnd it is arrogant. How many times has it displayed its power to us. Sure now it has stayed quiet. Perhaps it finally realized it has gone too far, been too confident. Even if its not a member of the Doom Squad, would it really matter if it were banished?"

Cap looked at the Limbo screen. "Whoever killed Kenshiro must have suspected he was the Vigilante. I find the most telling accusation by Kenshiro was against Dr. Strange. Out of all of us, Kenshiro named Dr. Strange directly. I'm sorry Doctor but I am going to have think about this too."

OOC: Sorry for the kind of double post. I just thought Cap should express his thoughts of my earlier post.

While dat guy who likes primary colahs an' ovahsize dinnah plates wuz gabbin' I got ta thinkin' bout da clues dat one guy left on da limbo (lower, now) screen...


1: THe killers have super strength on their side. I suspect Spider-Man, Power Girl or Hulk in a part.

Mebbe. If one'a dose mugs knocked down da statue on someone... Mebbe someone could check pieces of da statue fer fingahprints! Den dat would rule out da big green guy, since he barely has pants-- let alone gloves!

2: Dr. Strange is full of it.

I wonda if dat means dat dis strange doctah is lyin' or if it means dat magic is a clue. Mebbe someone cast spells on stuff ta do dose guys in so distoibingly...

3: F*** you Dr. Doom.

OH! It's just Doctah Doom. No wondah dat guy whut looked like a renaissance fair reject din't look any'ting like a Houndoom... Boy, is my furry face red!

4: Get rid of all blade users.

  • gulp* does dat mean me? I have claws an' dey can be pretty big (dependin' on who draws 'em), but all dey do is leave scratch marks on people. I don't t'ink I could hoit someone-- especially not anyone like da guys who wuz 86ed.


I wondah if anyone'll listen ta my suggestion ta look fer clues...

I also wondah if Jessie an' James miss me?


Meanwhile, back in the Pokemon world--

Jessie: James, have you seen Meowth lately?

James: Why, no. Now that you mention it, he seems to have been gone for a little while now.

Jessie: Um, James-- why are you wearing my dress?

James:....... I just wanted to feel pretty.


Back to stately Doom Mansion--

[QUOTE=Schornforce;4268107]BIC: But still, some o' dese mugs don't seem half bad. I t'ink Ukyo's real nice. Dat blonde headed handshakah and da guy wit da fancy starred dinnah plate he's always carryin' seem real stand-up too. Dis is all too confusin' to a scratchcat like myself. I decide ta stick wit' da majority of da' group-- even if only ta keep da plot goin', but decided ta bring up da followin' point one more time--

"Hey, alla youse guys! I know I said it before, but s'pose dat Doctah wit' da chrome complexion is supplyin' folks wit' weapons an' stuff ta frame dose he t'inks are a threat-- or simply ta let dose on his bad guy team get away wit' hoitin' us fer as long as possible! Don'tcha t'ink we oughtta look fer some sorta clues-- like around where dose otha' two bought da farm?"[/QUOTE]

Ukyo turned to Meowth. "I hope you're wrong about Doom just giving people weapons, because then we have no evidence. We might as well just vote at random. I'd like to think this isn't just some 'pick the card I'm thinking of' game where the only way we can win is to either read Doom's mind or get the right one by accident."

"There's just too much at stake. I want this to be fair. If you're right, then it's not fair! Not fair at all..."

Ukyo was quiet for a while before she addressed Meowth's other point.

"Meowth, I do think looking for more clues at the place where they were killed might be a good idea. But I'm not sure where that is. All we saw was just that movie."

"It looked like it was outdoors to me. The only place I can think of that's outdoors and that we can get to is the courtyard. I don't know where else there'd be a statue of Doom that big. To be honest, I don't know if we'd find anything there. They probably cleaned things up when they sent the bodies away."

OC: Sorry my comps been down for a while. Just got a new one so I can get into this now. :)

Can someone give me an update on the threads events before I start?


Joe Acro 01-20-2007 01:44 PM

OOC: I suggest the Purple Skull should handle that. Maybe via PM.

[i]I had reached a conclusion. That is not to say I was ready to vote. I floated back to the floor and re-entered the Media Room.

[b]"Everyone! I have meditated on the events up until this point and I have a reached a conclusion. Despite his arrogance and apparent speed, despite his silence and the amount of blades on his person, I believe Shrike to be innocent. At the last kill, many focused on Batman being skinned. Many began to accuse those with the capability, specifically blade-users. We lost Wolverine through such an assumption. This time, with the presence of cutting and the Tree of Thorns, the evidence quite clearly points to the Shrike. But since the evidence fooled us last time, what is to say it has not done so again? Could it not be that the Doom Squad implicated Shrike merely due to the suspicion against him earlier?

"I do not yet know who to vote against, but that shall come with time."[/b][/i]

OOC: Okay, I'll see what I can do.

[SIZE="4"]Previously on 'Traitor Game VI: Back to Basics'[/SIZE]

Dr. Doom, thanks to that Continuum Transductioner device he coveted in the previous game, has stolen a great deal of cosmic power. With it, he has made his presence felt in several universes, claiming each now belongs to him. But that isn't enough for Dr. Doom. He won't rest until, like Alexander the Great, he has no worlds left to conquer. He now seeks to usurp power from the One Above All.

The Living Tribunal decided Doom had gone too far, and challenged Doom to a game. He summoned 27 people of various universes to help stop Doom. Three of these, however, are secretly members of the Doom Squad, out to do in as many of the others as possible. If Doom is defeated, he will be forced to relinquish his power over the universes. If he isn't...well, most of the people gathered would rather not contemplate what might happen next.

The characters started to meet and get to know each other. The Shrike gave everyone the creeps by appearing to move faster than light. Prez made the rounds and introduced himself to everyone. And Ukyo offered to make okononomiyaki, but memorized the recipe for Latverian Meatloaf just in case Dr. Doom wanted any.

Then Batman was killed. Apparently, he was beaten to death and then skinned. His skin was hung in the 'Hall of Doom'. Almost immediately, the accusations began, and tempers began flaring. Some people said a few things without thinking. Worst of all, Wolverine just carelessly played with Batman's heart, seemingly not caring if that made him look bad.

Dr. Strange questioned Moon Knight as Ukyo and Meowth told each other their life stories. Then, after dinner, Wolverine was banished. It turned out he wasn't a Traitor after all, despite his playing with the victim's remains.

Dr. Doom invited everyone to view a movie showing them the next kill. It turned out there there was not one, but TWO victims. Kenshiro was killed when a giant statue of Dr. Doom crushed him to death, and Kamen Kabuto Rider was killed by being vivisected. Their bodies were then transported to the Shrike's Tree of Thorns.

Prez voted for Darth Vader while Ukyo just lost it, and accused Dr. Doom of breaking the rules by allowing the Doom Squad to kill two people. She went to her room, wrote a note, and tried to sleep. She had a horrific nightmare in which the Shrike was killing many of her fellow players and many of the people she knew back home. This led her to conclude that no one was safe from the Shrike, whether they were regular players, Secret Avengers, or Doom Squad members. So she voted for the [B]Shrike[/B]. Moon Knight and Darth Vader also voted for the Shrike (I'm not sure, but did Meowth vote for Shrike, too?). Jade and Captain America were also suspicious of the Shrike, but they haven't voted for anyone yet.

Did I leave anything important out? I hope this helps those who came in late.

OOC: Great job, with the recap. Although you should've begun with "Previously on 'Back to Basics...' Yes. Meowth did officially vote for Shrike (again).

BIC: "*sigh* ya may be right, Ukyo. I jus' don't t'ink dat dis Doom charactah IS playin' fair-- aftah all, dis time two a' us were offed. Dat weren't in da rules, right? Dis all seems ovahwhelmin'. If none a' us are supposed ta trust each otha, an' clues get cleaned up an' moved around, an' da guys in limbo ain't talkin' much, den whadda we do? Oy. Mebbe dose clues dat dat one victim left us'll end up helpin'. I jus' wish I knew how ta solve dis. Where's dat detec-a-tive wit' da snazzy rumpled trenchcoat when youse need 'im?"

Dis place is givin' me a headache. I bet Digimon nevah have days like dis...

One last thing: Kamen Kabuto Rider was the Vigilante.


Anthony Johanson 01-20-2007 04:30 PM

[QUOTE=Pheonix-NoRelation;4268816]One last thing: Kamen Kabuto Rider was the Vigilante.[/QUOTE]

It was Kenshiro, not Kabuto.


Crimson King 01-20-2007 05:13 PM

Kassad: alright, first of all, The Shrike may be strong, but he's still not strong enough to lift that statue. Second, his blades have no sign of blood on them. If he really had killed them, his blades would be covered with blood. Yet, not a speck of blood is on him. And wait a minute! He's actually in a deactivated mode! The Shrike's been in a deactivated mode all this time, meaning he can't move at all!

Kassad gives The Shrike a kick, knocking The Shrike over.

Kassad: I was right, The Shrike's conserving energy. It will take him some time to restart himself...


Anthony Johanson 01-20-2007 05:28 PM

Jade shrugged, and replied:

"Yet, if the Shrike is so fast, couldn't he remove the blood before anyone found out about the murder? As for being in deactivated mode, that seems far too convenient... To add on, if he was conserving energy, one wonders what for.

Though, I had already ruled out the Shrike for the Kenshiro murder, I know he was not guilty of that. I assume it was someone who was magically apt who caused that."


Crimson King 01-20-2007 05:58 PM

Kassad: "The Shrike has been freecasting to other planets and collecting sentient being and nailing them on his Tree of Pain. And The Shrike never bothers to remove blood from himself. He just let's it dry.

Anyways, The Shrike doesn;t follow rules. He's here only to amuse himself. If he wanted to kill you all, You'd all be dead already. Rules mean nothing to a being who can travel through time."

The Shrike begins to move. He gets up and silently promises that Kassad will hang from the tree for knocking him over. The walks over to the corpses and studies them. Silently, he carves a name onto the floor

[B]Dante[/B]


Eternal Torment 01-20-2007 06:28 PM

A burst of flame from the ceiling spelled out a name of the floor. [U][B]Shrike.[/B][/U] The Undertaker was cooking a stirfry and baking a lasagna in the oven. "[I]More food. Want some?[/I]"


Chris Lang 01-20-2007 06:40 PM

OOC: Schornforce, Purple Skull. Glad you liked the recap. I suppose I can always edit it to put in that 'Previously on Back to Basics' but I was in a hurry when I typed it.

IC:

Ukyo listened to what the others were saying. She took a breath, and then tried to compose herself.

[I]Cologne's so much better at this sort of thing than I am[/I], Ukyo thought to herself. [I]I guess I'll have to try, though...[/I]

"It's odd that Dr. Strange is defending the Shrike. If I had to pick anyone other than Doom who might be transporting the bodies to the Tree of Thorns in an attempt to pin the crime on the Shrike, it'd be Dr. Strange. I don't really know all that much about him, but I've heard people call him the 'master of the mystic arts' and the 'sorcerer surpreme'."

"If he turned to the Dark Side..." she cast a glance at Darth Vader, then continued. "...so to speak, then he could have easily committed both of the murders we saw in that movie. I'm sure he's powerful enough to do everything we saw there."

"But I can't just let the Shrike off the hook yet. Having Kabuto's murder be a vivisection and showing us the Tree of Thorns could be a way of tricking us into NOT voting for the Shrike. They might be trying to trick us into saying, 'Come on now! The murderer would NEVER blatantly give himself away like that!'. We'd vote for someone else and Shrike would be free to keep killing us."

"My guess is Doom turned Shrike in to make up for his bending the rules that time. He may have decided that since Shrike always seems to use the same methods of killing people, he was dispensable."

"If Shrike IS one of the Doom Squad, Doom will still have two members left. There's still a whole bunch of suspects to choose from in the Kenshiro murder. Hulk, Power Girl, Dr. Strange, Darth Vader...they're probably not the only ones capable of knocking over a giant statue, either. I'm sure I forgot to mention someone."

"I get the feeling this vote's going to be a tough one. Some will be voting on who killed Kenshiro, and others on who killed Kabuto. I still think they were killed by two different Doom Squad members, though I could be wrong."


Crimson King 01-20-2007 06:42 PM

Kassad takes out his multi-purpose rifle and fires off several hundred flechette rounds. The room soon resembles a post sieged city.

Kassad:[B] IS ANYONE F***ING LISTENING TO ME?![/B]


Crimson King 01-20-2007 06:45 PM

After hearing Ukyo's speech, The Shrike disappears and reappears with an old Dr. Doom. The Shrike holds the old Dr. Doom with one hand and guts Dr. Doom with his other three hands. Blood touches The Shrike for the first time since he's been in the castle. He then transports the old Dr. Doom and nails him onto the Tree of Pain.

Kassad:"... I think The Shrike is trying to make a point... no pun intended."


Eternal Torment 01-20-2007 06:45 PM

The Undertaker spoke darkly. "[I]We have only circumstantial proof that Shrike did it. Although I did vote for him, we should give evidence that he DID NOT commit the murders. We are also looking for somebody who has a superior knowledge of human anatomy. That includes me as well.[/I]"

Kassad: "Well, The Shrike only know how to kill. He knows absolutely nothing about human anatomy."


Anthony Johanson 01-20-2007 06:53 PM

Jade nodded, and replied:

"However, someone like you, good Kassad, could direct his kill style."


Joe Acro 01-20-2007 06:55 PM

[i]It seemed that my thoughts were not helping Shrike's case. In fact, it seemed to raise suspicion toward me.

I had taken a few moments to analyze the evidence and come to an unsatisfactory conclusion.

[b]"My previous vote was for [COLOR="Red"]Darth Vader[/COLOR]. Based on these new murders, I see no reason to change that vote."[/b][/i]


Crimson King 01-20-2007 07:00 PM

Kassad: I'm a colonel of the hegemony. My mortal enemy is The Shrike. I'm only helping him so we can resume our fight. I have no reason to help him kill. Also, I think The Shrike, as well as me, may know who the killer is. [B]Vader[/B] was seemed eager to accuse someone after each kill. I have studied Vader's personality and he seems to have changed. The Vader that led the Imperial Army wouldn't have given a rat's ass about someone else dying. This Vader seems...too rash on his decisions. He fires off an accusation without properly assessing the corpse.


Joe Acro 01-20-2007 07:04 PM

[i]After Kassad, as he announced himself, spoke in defense of himself and in accusation of Vader, I realized that I didn't know where he had come from. Surely, Shrike could not have traveled back to his home universe to retrieve him? I needed to ask.

[b]"Kassad, I want to know how you found yourself here. You were not here at the start of events."[/b][/i]


Crimson King 01-20-2007 07:07 PM

Kassad: I though you saw. The Shrike brought me the to speak for him since he does not like speaking.

"You're right, Undertaker. I challenged that Kassad to give evidence that Shrike didn't commit the murders, but so far he hasn't come up with anything really convincing."

"Right now, I can only come up with two people who could have committed both murders. That's assuming Meowth's wrong about the 'borrowed weapons' thing. I don't even want to go there because if he's right, then this isn't a whodunnit, it's a guessing game."

"The only two people I can think of who might have killed BOTH Kenshiro and Kabuto are Dr. Strange and Darth Vader. No, I didn't see a lightsaber, but Darth Vader might have used the Force to move sharp objects through the air. And he could have used the Force to push over that statue, too."

"I've seen the movies. I heard what Yoda said. 'Size matters not'. Darth Vader's a master of the Force, so pushing a statue is easy for him no matter how big it is."

"Then there's Dr. Strange. Kenshiro seemed to think we couldn't trust him. But he IS another one who had the means to pull off both murders. Shrike's the obvious one for 'who sent them to the Tree of Thorns', but Dr. Strange or Doom could have done that, too."

"I don't know. I'll admit it. Shrike scares me. He's like something out of those horror stories they used to frighten children with, only worse. Maybe I'll change my vote later. There's still plenty of time. But for now, it stays the same. I'd rather not be in the same dimension as that thing any longer than I have to."

Kassad: The Shrike can indeed travel through time, but I think he cannot travel through realities. Since I would eventually become part of THe Shrike, I also might have been transported to this reality by Dr. Doom's magic, then transported here by The Shrike.

"It'll probably take an army to get rid of him." Ukyo said. "Even then, you'll probably lose over half of them in the attempt. For all we know, his presence here is all that's saving the lives of your army."

"Good luck in trying to kill this thing. I wish Doom would just let you both go back to your home dimension so neither of you would be our problem anymore. But that's not going to happen until this game is over, one way or another."

"The Shrike seems to think Dante did it. All I know about Dante is that he's some sort of demon hunter, and he's a character in a series of video games called [U][I]Devil May Cry[/I][/U]. I've never played any of those games, so I don't know anything else. What do you know about him?"

[i]After hearing Kassad's words, I had but one more question. In truth, I did not want it answered by anyone but Doom or the Living Tribunal. Given the state of the game up until that point, I doubted either would.

[b]"I find such a scenario quite odd. Why would you, a non-player, be brought here by one of the forces that brought the rest? I suppose none of us can possible know. Thanks for the clarification."[/b]

With that, I walked off. The actions since the start of the game had begun to take their toll. I decided to find a room in which to rest.[/i]

"You probably haven't seen the movies." Ukyo said.

"Anyway, Darth Vader isn't completely heartless and inhuman. There are some people he still cares about. Anakin Skywalker is still in there somewhere. He just needs the right person to awaken him."

"But it IS strange how he reacted to Batman's death. I mean, Darth Vader barely even KNEW him. Anakin may still be in there, but he's buried underneath Darth Vader. And Darth Vader doesn't care about the lives of anyone who isn't a member of his family or anything. There've been times where every other time one walks in on him, he's choking one of his officers to death because they failed him."

"So why would he care about Batman?" Ukyo asked. "I guess we'll have to ask him." She turned in Darth Vader's direction, hoping he would have a good answer.

[QUOTE=Anthony Johanson;4267306]Jade sighed with Wolverine, and replied:

"There is a lesson to be learnt here: Don't play with people's hearts. Now, if you don't have anything else to offer, quiet from the peanut gallery."

Then turning towards the Shrike, he inquired to the Colonel:

"While Shrike may be acquitted of the pillar attack, what about the vivisection? He may prefer to hang his victims on the tree, but that possibility of murder, and the bloodloss cause of death seem to be well within his range of possibilities. He may have been with you the whole time, but where were you at the time of the Kabuto murder?"[/QUOTE]

Perhaps I can help... Ok, so, since I was wrongly accused, think of someone who could do all those murders and match them up...and to me so far the shrike fits under the two deaths, the vivisection and the carving!

"[COLOR="Red"] Because he was the only one that talked to me.He even trusted me with his secret name. The only reason I accuse blades over there is because HE CUT OFF MY ARM!!! Is he a scum traitor? I don't know. Is he a rat bastard? Yes he is! Does he have good reason to accuse me of being a traitor scum? No! he just wants to finish what he started. If he is a traitor and if i'm quick enough then my blade shall know the thickness of his neck before his feet touch limbo."[/COLOR]

Kassad: from what I've heard, The Shrike only attacked you because you pushed him.

RUMINATIONS: Yeah, darkkeeperjr's 'Vader' was a bit on the weird side. But we explain it by saying that some alternate universes are strange.

Not much else to say about this installment except that it's pretty much the 'characters debate'. It will take a few twists in the coming installments.

The re-presentation will continue with Part 10.
