The previous day had concluded with no decision made, so the people of the castle gathered on this, the tenth day since the kings murder, intent on catching another traitor. The true question was however, would they get one? Or would they end up condemning another innocent loyalist? Who knows?
It was a fairly quiet night, although a couple of people were definitely wandering the corridors, up to no good. Luckily, nobody was killed during the night.
What? Ragnir, you said you were going to flame someone!
Well, yes, but I talked to the host and he said that would be a bit unfair.
But it would have been funny! No wonder our ratings are dropping, the audience is getting bored out of their brains! They haven’t laughed, yet alone clapped, since around Day 4! I knew this show was destined for disaster.
Perhaps we should have taken my idea and got in a few more celebrities. ImperialShadows just doesn’t seem to be doing it for us.
Umm, I think we’ve got quite enough celebrities thank you, especially with your choices.
What, I thought Staudie would have been a great celebrity appearance.
He had a cameo a while back, but that didn’t do anything for the ratings. If anything, it was from then that they started dropping…
Enough! This is getting silly, perhaps we might get some ratings if the audience had something to watch?
Oh right, on with the show! Um, cue the random story teller.
I’m not random! Really, I’m not sure I get paid enough to put up with all this.
We’ll discuss it later. Now if you don’t mind?
Breakfast was served and the people sat down, watching each other warily. The traitors were becoming increasingly hard to spot, and with little to go on, it seemed that they were just going to have to figure things out the old fashioned way. Eventually someone would make a slip…

Please note that voting for the building challenge will remain open for another week. Make sure you go vote! Keep posting, and make sure you find those traitors! If we don’t get a conviction today, then I will randomly kill one of you. And it will be random, I’ll roll a die and everything. So, take that as fair warning. Oh, and if I hear one complaint about a lack of clues, I’ll feed the complainer to my good buddy Ragnir. You’ve got plenty go on.
Good Luck! For by God you’ll need it.
