It's a strange, hectic day in Troperville.

First everyone worries maybe the dead body isn't really dead at all, and proposes they should kill him again to make sure; then some people claim to have strange powers, or very strange powers, and vigorously debate whether or not they were joking.

But finally, they settle on stringing up the absent I liek Squirtles, surely responsible for the dreadful murder of the probably-hopefully-dead JackPK. As they gather at his house, he awkwardly reminds them that actually, uh, he's a doctor, no mafia connections here.

So they turn around and instead bang on the door of the house opposite. Ottercopter answers the door, is very understanding, accepts her fate, and tells them helpfully as they're putting the noose around her neck that this is great actually because being lynched by a mob is exactly what she wanted.

The mob explodes into a confused panic. People want to lynch their Italian sandwiches maybe. Somewhere in the middle of it all, they just kind of grab I liek Squirtles and drag his feebly protesting self to the gallows. Accidentally.

An investigation of his house reveals it is very cute, and also he doesn't even have a phone, much less any secret mafia contacts. As the crowd disperses, each troper is pretty sure it was somebody else that hanged him.

I liek Squirtles is dead. He was not mafia.

Please send in your night actions. The night will end on April 15th, 0:00 UTC (that's UTC, the Iceland time zone, the proper default timezone that all deadlines should be in).

I have now created a small Python script to help me count votes in this game (and future mafia games, hopefully). It's very simple, and ideally we want to have a mafia hack that can properly automate this, but this quick-and-dirty solution should make it easier for me to provide you with live vote counts without hastily screwing anything up. (To be clear, the actual noting down of who makes what vote in what post will still be done manually by me; you'll still be fine if you misspell the name of the player you're voting, etc., so long as I can clearly tell who you're voting for. The script just handles figuring out each player's active vote and tallying the votes.)

To put it to the test, I ran the full vote history I did yesterday through it for a proper automatically counted result, which slightly changed yesterday's tally: I'd failed to include serimachi's abstain vote in the count and active vote list, and I'd accidentally managed to list Panini as the one voting Eifie yesterday in the final vote count, rather than M&F. These have now been corrected. (Obviously, this did not change the final result of the day.)

When the inhabitants of Troperville gather once again in the town square, one among their number is missing again.

After a quick headcount, they realize Boquise isn't there. There is no answer when they ring his doorbell. In the end, they break into his house and find him in his bed, smiling contentedly, dead without a mark on him.

After the clusterfuckery of yesterday, sparing guilty glances at the poor Squirtles at I liek Squirtles' house who no longer have anyone to like them, the town is a little hesitant. But ultimately, these murders are an attack on all of Troperville, and they must be avenged with more murder, obviously. The noose is hastily washed with somebody's garden hose, the pitchforks are readied, and the mob is ready to go.

Boquise is dead. He was not mafia.

You have 72 hours to discuss. The day will end on April 18th, 0:00 UTC (Iceland time zone best time zone).

uh, what to make of zero marks and a smile ... another markless death??? god. what the fuck. part of me is like is this even a mafia kill? but it has to be right? ugh

i have stuff to ask/talk about that i compiled during night phase review but that'll be a bit
 

Keldeo

Resolute

he, they
I mean my hypothesis aorn is that Otter's Just Mafia Here and claimed jester-like in order to sway people off her in the panic of deadline.

Boq is an interesting kill tbh that I assume is from the mafia given the similar ish death flavor to Jack? I looked over Panini last Night and noted a few wagon-related posts near EOD but it still felt kind of disengaged. It would be cool to get more game-related stuff from her toDay.

kyeugh, hmm... Too Happy To Live?
