Night has fallen upon the castle. Cecily stands by the gate, looking off into the distance. She wonders if perhaps, tonight of all nights, her prince charming will come. He certainly isn't one of the men in the throne room.
From in the distance, she hears some shuffling footsteps.
"Oh, hai. Are you single?"
The creature looks her up and down and mutters its battle cry.
"Walla walla bonga!"
Cecily takes the beam straight to the face, and instantly becomes not one of this world.
Her body transformed into gelatinous lumps, stays by the gate.
The green monster giggles as it slinks off into the night.
Cecily was Town.
Meanwhile, at the home of Franklin Holmes, Holmes has taken off his human mask. He is Witchbreed!
He mutters to himself in a strange language, hereby translated for the sake of our gentle readers. "These stupid beasts, they have no clue where to even start looking for us. God, they are so utterly stupid! In a million years, they couldn't figure it out!"
He lifts his glass to his mouth, for a pint of lager.
"They do make good grog though. Amazing that such a small-brained species could have latched onto the way to make poison get you high without killing you. It's such a delicate balance."
He swigs it deeply... "Strange, the aftertaste is..."
He falls to the ground, his lager splashing beside him. If his secret guest could tell him what the aftertaste is, they would tell him it is arsenic.
Franklin Holmes was Witchbreed Scum.
In the very early hours of the morning, Biskie Partsy cleans the throne room. The Boy King is very particular about things being spotless, and isn't opposed to beatings to show the importance of cleanliness.
Biskie mutters to herself, confident that her voice is unheard. "Boy, the royal tush sure does dirty the throne."
Stepping down, she hears an echo to her footprints, coming from beside the throne. As she turns, a wailing voice cries,
She screams, and before she can defend herself, she is already taken down. The masked figure cackles,
Me pounds you down, yous hits the ground!
Me smash your head, me makes you dead!
The figure stops and looks at the green blood that has splattered everywhere.
Before him, Biskie's head transforms into one like the one that the king had killed two days ago.
The black clad figure tries to puzzle out what it ultimately means. Undecided, they decide to high tail it out of there.
Biskie Partsy was Witchbreed Scum.
When morning comes, the Boy King is typically annoyed. "You're telling me my maid was one of these beasties? Lord Wolverton, I am particularly unimpressed with your hiring practices."
Wolverton takes a deep breath and replies, "Yes, I'm terribly apologetic, sire. I have no idea how these things could enter the castle in the first place."
Wolverton continues, "We had some fortunate news though, another of these so-called Witchbreed was found dead this morning. It appears the Manciple was somewhat less than human. Unfortunately, lady Cecily was found, or should I say, not so found, by the castle gates."
The Boy King turns to Gilly Wooks. "And how about you? What be thee, dear miller? Be thee one of these terrible blights on my kingdom?"
Gilly stammers out a reply: "My Internet~"
The Boy King swings his sword through Gilly's jugular and upon that, Gilly expires.
"Well, it appears Gilly was as he so claimed. I wonder what this 'Internet' he spoke of is."
"Oh well, we have more pressing matters to attend to, such as who you will deliver to me tonight. Consider well!"
Gilly Wooks was Town.
Mafia School lesson:
We are at a very interesting point in the game. Past votes can be reexamined, and there is a lot to be gauged from reactions. The scum will have to pretend they are thrilled about this turn of events, while secretly they are incredibly frustrated, as a week of scheming will be somewhat lost. Even typing, lying will be a hassle. Look for cracks!
Scum, I suggest looking at other older games, look at the final tally, and who was Town, and who was Scum, and try to mimic the Town from those games.
I wish all sides good luck!
The Boy King - Your lord. Show him the respect he has been granted by God.
Mother - The Boy King's mom. Fear her.
Lord Wolverton - The Boy King's adviser. Stay on his good side.
Sir Carrots, The Knight (scubacarrot) - The ideal of a medieval Christian man-at-arms. He has participated in no less than fifteen of the great crusades of his era. Brave, experienced, and prudent.
Dragus, The Pardoner (darkdragon) - Dragus grants papal indulgences—reprieves from penance in exchange for charitable donations to the Church. He often collects profits for himself. He excels in fraud, carrying a bag full of fake relics.
Voltana Panana, The Prioress (volcanicpanik) - Modest and quiet, this Prioress (a nun who is head of her convent) aspires to have exquisite taste. Her table manners are dainty, she knows French (though not the French of the court), she dresses well, and she is charitable and compassionate.

He gets drunk frequently, is irritable, and is not particularly qualified for his position. He frequently attempts to sound educated.
Zam Kuric, The Clerk (zakura)- Kuric is a poor student of philosophy. Having spent his money on books and learning rather than on fine clothes, he is threadbare and wan. He speaks little, but when he does, his words are wise and full of moral virtue.

Pirelly Dabito The Shipman (Piratedave) - Brown-skinned from years of sailing, Dabito has seen every bay and river in England, and exotic ports in Spain and Carthage as well. He is a bit of a rascal, known for stealing wine while the ship’s captain sleeps.

Master Hale, The Summoner's Assistant (halomaster96) - Hale is a shy boy that has been taken under the Summoner's wing. While there are certainly unpleasant aspects to his position, he hopes the experience will give him freedom in life moving forward.
