The Saints!
Sometimes I think, when I look up real high
That there is such a big world up there
I'd like to give it a try.
But then I sink, cuz it is here I'm supposed to stay.
But I get so lonely down here, tell me why's it have to be that way?

Up there,
there is so much room,
where babies burp and flowers bloom.
Everyone dreams, I can dream too.
Up there, up where the skies are ocean blue.
I can be safe and live without a care,
up there

They say I don't belong
I must stay below alone.
Because of my beliefs I'm supposed to stay where evil is sown
But what is evil anyway?
is there reason to the rhyme?
Without evil there can be no good,
So it must be good to be evil sometimes.

Up there,
there is so much room,
where babies burp and flowers bloom.
Everyone dreams, I can dream too.
Up there, up where the skies are ocean blue.
I can be safe and live without a care
live without a care
If only I coud live up there.
I wanna live
I wanna live up there
Ooh baby, ooh
I want to live up there.

All game long you've been saying "HIM" for Satan and it turns out to be a girl. FFS.

OOC:

As far as I can tell, LeaSaints is a fake account set up by Oaf ages ago in preparation for this game. LeaSaints is an anagram of SatansLie.

the next bit, I didn't spot but Spidey did. In LeaSaints' Intro page. The first 6 capital letters spell out I AM OAF.

Absolutely brilliant, Oaf.
Ah yes. I always wondered why she never made any comments in the Premier League section and I remember commenting on her lack of Southampton posts in the box .

OOC: I assumed that was the case, would have been ridiculous for a player to have that anagram so conveniently [emoji38]

This is just your usual NOTW game from here on out. No secret phrases, no Satan trying to get you to kill one another, just 7 innocents and 2 wolves.

So lets run through those clues and things...

Yup, and there was a clue in the very name of the game... NOTW II: devil among men. So many little hints here and there.

Tom has the right of it. I set up Leasaints a fair bit ago and made a few posts here and there. Hell, I even took part in a couple of games of sheep to try to establish the account a few weeks ago.
But yeah, basically when I was thinking up things to do with NOTW, I remembered a film that I'd recently seen called Devil. It had a bunch of people stuck in a lift, and it turned out that one of them was the devil, killing them off one by one. Also, I wanted to see what would happen in a game of NOTW if the person running it was able to try to influence the game from the inside... so I made a fake account. I wanted a clue to be there in the name, and I managed to find a combination of a phrase that made sense in the context of the game (satans lie) and a name that would sound like it belongs on a football forum (Leasaints).

I didn't want myself as Oaf to be able to "cheat" my way around. So I set myself some rules... everything I ever said as Oaf had to be true. But with Leasaints I was allowed to lie, cheat and do whatever I could to try to help the wolves and kill you all off.

And yes, this clue...

For those of you who seek what’s true
Place your gaze upon what was once new
The signs are there in the introductions
And holds the key to avoid destruction

Which I think people took as the introduction of this game or what not... which is what it was supposed to imply. In reality, it means LeaSaints first ever post in the introduction section of the forum:

I thought I'd make a quick introduction. Actually I've been meaning to sign up for a couple days now but thought I'd finally get around to it, so hi! May this be the start of a wonderful relationship :)):
Oh wow, we have some interesting emoticons on here! :milk:Ahahaha! Feels like somewhere that I'm happy to call home already :wub:
And then there was the demon, who said he'd give you a clue when he died... then he died and said:

AMMGMGRAMGAMAMARGANAAMGAMGARAAARG!!!

Which is a random load of garbage that only contains letters in the word "anagram". A very subtle clue, but a clue none the less :lol:

Also, other little things. LeaSaints liked post number 666, which yeah, had "number of the beast".

And then then speaking of other songs based on satan... there were these little bits based on sympathy for the devil by the rolling stones:

Badly wanted to see if that L fit in there. This is clearly something about me, I'm just wondering what the hell it is. What's puzzling me is the nature of this game. Eager to see what it's all about and today just seems like a wasted day.
I think it's about time I introduced myself, I'm a woman who's made a fair bit of money off of my books. I've been writing for many long years and have a lot of crazed fanatical people who worship my books.
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith

Again, very subtle, but it's there.

Clever cove is Jonny Oaf... What.

All fun and games until someone loses a leg. I submitted that as a proposal for Alton Towers new tagline, but got fired from the PR company.

Anyway.. We still have these pesky werewolves to think about and my advisor The Seer tells me that we need to nominate a particular person for execution.

It gives me only a very little amount of pleasure to nominate...



Hand of Dom for Execution

Execution votes:

The Hand of Dom: 3 (Silkyman, Aberstone, Blade)
Silkyman: 1 (The Hand of Dom)

It is decided, The Hand of Dom is next for the chop. They have already vanquished the devil today, can they get a wolf as well?

Dom decides that he isn't going to be executed without a fight! He catches Aberstone off guard with a massive right hook that sends him down, knocking him out!

Aberstone is knocked out! He can not post in this thread until the next game day! (so like, for 10 minutes basically)

They eventually get the rope around Doms neck. Man, he has not had it easy... being shot at one day, sent for execution the next. The noose tightens... and he is killed.




















And then he transforms into a wolf.

The Hand of Dom is dead!

The Hand of Dom was a wolf!

One wolf remains!

Exclamation point!

IT IS NIGHT!

The next morning, it seems that the lone surviving wolf is still deadly enough on its own... and they've taken down yet another innocent.

In fact, they've taken down yet another leader...

Silkyman has been brutalized and his corpse has been torn to shreds. This last wolf is not going down without a fight!

DAY 16 BEGINS!

A new leader must be appointed! Again, if there are not enough votes, it will be assigned at random.

The deadline for day 16 will be 11pm tomorrow (wednesday)

Also, Aberstone may post again.

I'd be curious to see exactly how much you figured out... screw waiting until the end!
It was a hunch, the 666 thing drew suspicion but it was only through thinking what could fit in the final bit of the phrase that made me think my hunch was correct.

When I was told about the LeaSaints introduction last night after saying the phrase, my mind was well and truly blown. That was a long game you played Oaf, you crazy bastard.

Oh, Aberstone for mayor.
