After the signing of the Alliance of the Three Nations, and the ensuring party, many of the residents of the castle retired to their beds, with some particularly eccentric people continuing to party on in the ballroom. The castle was gradually claimed by darkness, and a certain quiet fell over the great stone fortress. But as we all know, evil is most often afoot in the dead of night...

Posted Image

The grand hall was quiet, but not far away, something sinister was beginning.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The doors to the west wing slammed open, and beyond, the flickering glow of a raging fire could be seen. Distantly, a terrible scream could be heard, and the clash of steel against steel. In the west atrium, Duke Frederick Dufay was making a brave retreat before the coming flames.

Posted Image

"Run for your lives!", he screamed, as he came hurtling through the doors.

Posted Image

Those were his last words unfortunately, as a long tongue of flame stretched out to grasp him.

Posted Image

"AAAAAAHHHHHHHHGGGGG!!!!......" The flame wrapped around the poor Duke and as quick as a flash, burned him to a cinder. Only the charred bones remained upon the polished floor.

Posted Image

Now more screams could be heard coming from the west wing. The flames roared up, and a few desperate people tried to escape the horrors of the slaughter. Next to come dashing through the doors were two guards, Vincent of Hamenweir and Damien of Dromindur.

Posted Image

"What the hell is going on!?" cried Vincient.
"Some sort of attack", replied Damien. "The whole west wing of this place is ablaze. And did you see the bodies back there? Brutal, just brutal..."
"Yeah, better keep running."
No matter how hard they ran though, the pair could not escape the fate headed their way.

Posted Image

A purple flash came from behind, and the two were struck down with a powerful spell which systematically stripped their skin from their bodies, leaving a bloody mess on the floor.

Posted Image

Meanwhile, the fires ragged on unabated.

Posted Image

Silence gradually spread through the castle, with the occasional scream punctuating the stillness. The atrium was empty save for the flicker of flames.

Posted Image

Hesitantly, Fergus the scullion and Betta the maid scuttled out in the atrium, in the hopes of finding safety away from the fires.

Posted Image

They were wrong.

Posted Image

Two hooded figures had just entered from the opposite corridor. Slowly they advanced. Betta turned and ran, while Fergus stood petrified, as he was sliced up by the wicked blade of the intruder.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Finished with his fun, the intruder turned and left the mangled, wretched body on the floor.

Posted Image

The roar of the flames built up, and with a mighty roar, burst forth into the hall, like a giant, hungry beast.

Posted Image

Then, as suddenly as it had come, the fires receded, and the doors slammed shut, leaving the grand hall in darkness once again.

Posted Image

The burnt, tortured, misshapen remains lay still on the floor, a testament to the wicked horrors of the night. Silence once again possessed the castle.

Posted Image

In the morning, the King and his Queen, in the company of the only remaining Royal Guards, surveyed the carnage.

Posted Image

"This is the work if those Dragons, the ones who so greatly oppose our alliance:, the King sighed. "This must be dealt with immediately. Clean up this mess, and then call in all the survivors. We must find these traitors, and execute them before they kill us all."
The guards complied, and very soon, all the people were assembled in the Hall, all those that were left that is. Many were still mourning the deaths of loved ones from the previous night; husbands, wives, sisters and brothers, the toll of the night was high on everyone. What the people of the keep wanted was justice, revenge for the foul deed that had been done.


Posted Image

"All we want is justice!", someone shouted.
"Together, we can find the ones who did this and make them pay!", another cried.
"Won't someone just think of the children?", another asked.
Murmurs of agreement spread through the hall. The decision was made; nobody would leave nor enter the castle until either the killers were all found and executed, or the people had died trying. Together, they could rid themselves of the nuisance that has caused so much horror and bloodshed, but only if they are wary and careful of the evil ways of the Dragons. Things were just beginning to get interesting, in Matidoer Castle...

********************


Rules of Play

This game will follow the basic conventions of a Mafia Game. Each "day", you will be given 4 real days in which to vote for someone to kill. The day will end as soon as a majority decision is reached, or when the 4 days are up. If someone has been convicted, you will find out their loyalty shortly after end of the day. After this a night phase will begin, which will last 2 real days. Then the cycle will repeat. Those players with night actions must PM them to me during the night phase. If I do not receive them within the two days, they will not be counted.

- There will be two main sides in the game. Your winning criteria will be included with your character PM.
- Voting is to be done in the day thread, and should follow the following format: Vote: Character (Player). Please note the use of bold. This is the only format that will be accepted. To unvote someone, the same applies: Unvote: Character (Player).
- You may not edit your posts. Violation of this rule may result in a moderator kill.
- Please avoid posting out of character in the game thread.
- Do not ever directly quote something the game moderator has sent to you via PM, whether it be your character information, night action results, or any other form of communication. Violation of this rule will result in a moderator kill. You may of course paraphrase any information you receive; if it is your own words then it is fine.
- Do not discuss game tactics or "play the game" outside the game thread, including in the General Discussion thread. You may communicate privately via PM, but this is at your own risk, and should be considered part of playing the game.
- Please be considerate towards the host. I will try my best to stick to the schedule, and your cooperation will help this greatly, particularly getting night actions in promptly.
- Sudden Death rules, as outlined in your roles, will only apply on certain nights. You will be informed of this in the final post of the day. A day in which no conviction is reached will definitely result in a sudden death night.

Oh!  :sick: How terrible that such a sin has occurred. I dare not touch the bodies, else the evil shall spread through our food.

We must act quickly to rid ourselves of this plague before it eats us alive. Where could that maid, Betta, be? Has she been allowed to live, or was it sheer luck that she escaped this fiery wrath? Did anyone here know her?

No problem, I could let you take such a grim task alone. And besides, one of the deseaced used to be a good friend.

We should take them out side for now (not just because the smell is fowl, but out of respect) until we can come up with a concrete plan. I suggest a buriel service, does this place have a morgue or graveyard?

If she did live, she probably ran away as fast as she could.

Her body was not found, so maybe she lived.  :cry_happy:

Lady Papelion, I'll go get you that glass of water now.

Oh dear...

What a mess. I suppose it is my job to protect the King and Queen of this castle, despite the fact that most of the other castle guards are gone. Lieutenant Victor of the Matidoer Army will not turn away a fight, especially not one caused by ruthless traditionalist monsters!

*looks around for soldiers to command over*

You men! Help them clean up this mess!

On a lighter note, I could do with some breakfast to get my mind off this mayhem.  :classic:

I haven't seen carnage like this since the last time our people were attacked by black wraith demons...

This is a very serious matter, not just for the death it has brought but for the situation we are in. Clearly, the security at an event like this would normally be able to withstand such an attack, thus it seems obvious that there are those amongst us who would seek to destroy our important work by allowing access to the evil that brought this upon these poor souls.

Open your eyes, one and all, and keep them open to your surroundings. Pay close attention to those around you, for there are traitors in our midst and we must find and destroy them before they expose us to more death.

Be vigilant, we can't allow this to interfere with the important agreement that we have made here.

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

But... that bothers me. Why didn't the evil-doers pursue her? It seems no one could escape this wrath, no matter how fast they ran. These poor, dead souls before us are unfortunately examples of this. She's not (seemingly) anyone among us, but then where is she?

But good Lord Ambassador, we mustn't let paranoia and suspicion cloud our judgment either. That is exactly what those minions of the devil want.

This is indeed an important contract, and I for one have always wanted nothing but peace between our nations. It aches my heart to see that there are people among us who would stop at nothing to hold onto the old ways of rivalry and barbarism.

Excuse me for being so forthcoming, but I believe the first course of action we should take is to secure the safety of our kind and beloved king and queen. I can't help but to think that the Dragons want the throne for themselves. We mustn't allow that to ever happen, so those loyal to the king and the alliance must unite!

*looks around and blushes*

Oh, I am terribly sorry. I didn't mean to speak with such fervor... :blush:

Oh dear.  This certainly is bloody.  I do hope the maids will hurry and clean it up.

As for our course of action, I can't say what it is.  Perhaps some breakfast to calm the nerves is in order, I think the cook is already working on that.  Oh, perhaps the maids would like me to clean up the mess.  I'm not very good with blood, but I could help clear some of the burnt things, or salvage some objects if they are still in good shape.
