*Cinderella appears in the courtyard wearing a brown wig, a turban, and maids clothes, and carrying a bwankie.*
All right, gang. Using the mad theatrical skills inherent to my family line, I shall explain just what happened last night.
The Case of the Scumbag Infiltrator and the Overconfident Princess
Cinderella: Hello. You know, you've been pretty quiet, but I think you're one of the 12 Good Guys.
James Bond: I am. In fact, I'm the Doctor.
Why would you tell me that?!?
James Bond: You're acting like [Metagame] and [Metagame] did in [Metagame] and [Metagame], plus [REDACTED in case the Scum don't already know].
Cinderella: Oh...wow...that's...really good information. Do you think we can use it to find and coordinate the other Good Guy Power Roles?
James Bond: Probably. Be careful though, if you're not careful you'll get us both--
*Cinderella rushes off in excitement*
James Bond: --killed.
Cinderella: Oh, hi, Samurai X! Listen, because you said [REDACTED] and mentioned to me that [REDACTED], I think you're a power role.
Samurai X: Um...sure, let's go with that. (Aside to audience) If she turns out Scum, I can sacrifice myself to save one of our real Power Roles.
Cinderella: Great! I know another Power Role, James Bond. Let's strategize!
Mushu: Ha ha! Someone just said they think I could be the Doctor! I'll just cozy up to Cinderella and misdirect all of her actions!
Cinderella: I'm standing right here, you know.
Mushu: But you can't hear me!
Whatever. I'll pretend I believe you so you can stupidly spill all the Scum's secrets.
*Cinderella walks away*
Mara Jade: Dude, you're an idiot. But keep being obviously Scum, she'll never lynch you as long as she thinks she can drag information out of you. Meanwhile, I'll
go trick her more subtly.
*Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuun!*
Cinderella: Hi! I know James Bond, the Doctor.
Mr. Bear: Oh, really? Well, I'm a Power Role, too, but I'm not saying which one.
Cinderella: OK, let me go figure out a good test to see if you are a Power Role or not. *walks over to Mara Jade* Hi there, I think you're the Good Guy blocker.
Mara Jade: You're right. I am. (Aside to audience) Gullible idiot. (To Cinderella) But I'm not saying which one I am.
Cinderella: OK, let me go ask James Bond what a good test would be. Hey, James, how many Good Guy Power Roles are there?
James Bond: Four. But--
Cinderella: OK, thanks! *runs to Mr. Bear and Mara Jade* Hey, guys, how many Good Guy Power Roles are there?
Mr. Bear: Four.
Mara Jade: Uh... *rolls a die, disappears and whispers to the other Scum* Er...four.
Cinderella: Yaaaaaaay, I trust you! Here, let's chat all together! *whispers privately to each one* Also, in case I die, here's half of my list of names of everybody, you can match it up with the other guy I gave the other half to if you can find them. Also *whispers James Bond's identiy*.
Cinderella: Quiet, you, I didn't even give you a hint.
Mr. Bear: Uh, OK. Anyhow, I'm the vigilante.
Mara Jade: Most excellent....MUHUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *lightning crashes* Uh, I mean, good for you, Bear, I'm still not ready to reveal what I am.
Cinderella: OK! I'm going to go rush off and make an ill-informed decision about who to lynch!
Pinocchio: Augh, I'm flailing around and making the exact sort of mistakes the Scum did in [Metagame]!
Cinderella: And I'm going to go all Phoenix Wright on your wooden behind!
Pinocchio's Family: Come along dear, we have an important family get-together today! *tie Pinocchio up and drag him away*
Pinocchio: Nooo, you're going to get me lynched!
Cinderella: Ha! Now we have time to catch another--
Cinderella's Family: Cinderella, we don't care about your stupid game, you have to come to our family event. *tie Cinderella up and drag her away*
Cinderella: Nooo! I won't be able to catch any more Scum, and the Scum will try to bandwagon meeeeee...!
Cinderella and Pinocchio: Family Sucks!
*Intermission. The Audience cheers, if only at the last line.*
Big Bad Wolf: So, I'm hearing from a lot of folks that you're trustworthy.
Cinderella: And you talk a lot about evidence, so you must be the Cop!
BBW: Uh...no...and even if I were, why would I tell you?
Cinderella: Because I'm talking with three of the Good Guy Power Roles!
BBW: (To audience) This guy is way too trusting, but I'll go with it for now.
Cinderella: So, what are your reads on these people? In fact, what ARE your general reads for Scum?
BBW: [Metagame], [Metagame], and [Metagame] are probably Scum. Also, what test are you using to confirm people?
Cinderella: Just ask how many Power Roles they are. (Aside to audience) And if he asks for the answer
to the test, BBW must be Scum!
BBW: OK, I'll try to use that. Who are you in contact with?
Cinderella: Doctor, Vigilante, and a third PR who won't say what role they are.
BBW: But there's no vig...I think there's only two power roles.
Cinderella: WHAT?! AAAAAAAAH! Quick, here's a convoluted plan to establish a new circle of trust, because I'm too stupid to look at the rules!
Samurai X: Oh, hey, by the way, I trust you now, so I'm going to tell you that I'm not a Power Role, I'm just a vanilla. Also, something was weird with my role PM, so our ally Tarzan may actually be Scum.
Cinderella: GASP! But that's everyone I trust aside from the confirmed Power Roles! (Aside to audience) She must be a Scum trying to trick me!
Audience: You're an idiot!
Cinderella: Shut up. (To Samurai X) Ehehe...OK.. I'll pretend I trust you, but really I don't. (To Big Bad Wolf) OK, here's the resources we have so far: Doctor, and another Power Role who won't say who they are. Also, Mushu is a Scum, and I'm feeding them fake info.
BBW: Who is this guy? And how can feeding him info help?
Cinderella: *Long complex dissertation that is probably wrong anyway*
BBW: OK. So, who is this Scum?
God (in Day topic): There's 4 Scum, 12 Good Guys. 2 Scum have Power Roles, 4 Good Guys have Power Roles. Here's what they are: *lists the PRs*
Cinderella: Dammit, now I don't have a way to confirm anyone, AND I can't trust anyone I thought I could trust! Except...
Cinderella: Help me, Sleeping Beauty-wan kenobi, you're my only hope.
Sleeping Beauty: Uh...OK.
Cinderella: OK! So, Big Bad Wolf thought there were only two Scum. Only Scum would think that so BBW must be a Scum!
SB: (To audience) Should I point out how many ways in which that logic is faulty or would you rathr do that for yourselves?
Audience: Let her get herself killed.
SB: *shrugs* suit yourselves. (To Cinderella) Yeah, I'll admit that's suspicious, but I don't really think--
Cinderella: Great!Thanks!Bye! *rushes off*
SB: *Sleeping Beauty shakes head sadly* He's gonna get us all killed.
Cinderella: Lynch the Scum Puppet!
*Pinocchio, bound and gagged by his Family, is helpless to respond*
Cinderella: GET HIM!
*Pinocchio is thrown through the mirror*
Pinocchio: Stupid familyyyyyyyyyy!
*The Audience applauds Pinocchio's final words.*
Cinderella: OK, here's our plan of action. Big Bad Wolf is really scummy for thinking there's only two Good Guy Power Roles and because they kept fishing for the name of the Scum I'm misleading.
James Bond: Asking twice is not fishing.
Cinderella: Shut up. So, we're going to murder them in the night and Block/investigate/whatever the hell you do to Mushu.
Mara Jade: OK. (To self) I told that idiot he was blatantly Scum.
Mr. Bear: OK. It's not like I've got any better suspects.
Cinderella: Great! And James Bond can protect Mr. Bear.
James Bond: Can I state for the record that this is a terrible idea?
Cinderella: Duly noted. Anything else?
James Bond: You're an idiot.
Cinderella: So you'll do it?
James Bond: *sigh* Yes. Damn, it, yes. Bear's our vigilante, so he needs to be protected even if you're telling him who to kill. For science. You monster.
Cinderella: Was that directed at me? Because you already insulted me once.
James Bond: *sigh* just shut up, I'll go protect Mr. Bear.
Mara Jade: (To self) Excellent...time to talk to the boys.
Mara Jade: Alright, scum buddies, James Bond is going to protect Mr. Bear, and Mr. Bear is going to kill Big Bad Wolf. If we block James Bond and kill Mr. Bear, that'll be a quarter of the Good Guys dead!
Mushu: What? Seriously? He's going after another
Good Guy? Man, for a Good Guy, he's a better Scum than we are!
Mara Jade: I know, right?
Mushu: So, who do I block?
Mara Jade: *whispers James Bond's identity*
Mara Jade: (To audience) Seriously?! We already did that gag! (To Mushu and the other Scum) Best of all...by the way tonight goes, Cinderella will be scummier than ever! We'll lynch her tomorrow and have a free night of evil, without fear of being stopped! WE! WILL BE! INVINCIBLE! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
*Thunder and lightning*
Audience: This play sucks!
So, that's what happened yesterday and last night. Any questions? I think today we should lynch Mara Jade, unless they give me a damn
good defense in private. But, I will gladly defer to the opinions of others, considering my track record.
I will say this to Mara Jade, if they are Scum:
Hello. My name is Cinderella Harrietson Attabar. You killed our Vigilante. Prepare to die.
if anyone wants to see detailed transcripts of ANY of my PMs last night, I will gladly lay my portion of those conversations out for you. I will be 100% open and honest, I am unworthy to keep the secrets of the Good Guys.
