Omelas: Day 4
A child of nine or ten sits at
the edge of the crowd, alone, playing on a wooden flute. People pause to listen, and they smile,
but they do not speak to him, for he never ceases playing and never sees them, his dark eyes
wholly rapt in the sweet, thin magic of the tune.

He finishes, and slowly lowers his hands holding the wooden flute.

As if that little private silence were the signal, all at once a trumpet sounds from the
pavilion near the starting line: imperious, melancholy, piercing

As if awakened by the trumpet, the crowd moves onward to the Green.  The child with the flute stays seated on the wall.  He holds the flute like it has suddenly become a strange object, fingers exploring the keys and eyes taking in every detail of it's construction.

Abruptly, he stands and places the flute gently down on the wall.  Without a backward glance, he walks slowly northward, eyes fixed on the mountains beyond the hills

Anything's possible. Incidentally, it would have been amazing if I was in a scum team with Teeth and Y.B, and we just made up the flower thing.

Here's my reads yesterday evening, Day 3 top of page 5.

Quote from: nostrum
happy for testy to go, think LD is town, I think diva is scummy but I mostly do, mike looks town to me
I agree except for diva, I'm leaning bor or nothing for scum from that duet.

testy and ksen are in my scummy pile at the moment, along with Y.B. being coached.
teeth is town so far,
Nostrum, you lean town for me but there's a lot of fos cast out by others.

I think a spreadsheet is a good idea tomorrow if I survive.

we were mistaken about testy, but I still lean ksen as scum and Y.B. as coached scum.

I didn't mention nesb but I lean town on him.

Soooo ...

1. ksen - scum
2. borealis - lean scum
4. Y.B - lean scum
5. Nostrum - lean town
7. divagreen - lean town EXCEPT if bor flips town
12. laughingdog - lean town
13. nesb - lean town
14. MikeS

You didn't like my swoop vote at day end to turn the tables on Testy?

He at least lolled when he realized the pickle he was in.

flavor is still bothering me.  We have two Horse Riders.
We started with 14 players, so seven pairs of roles (or seven pairs of "compatible" roles like the diva/bor roles)
I also know of another twin group out there.

I still wonder if, in this Utopia, we are eating ourselves by killing one part of the "pair" thus turning the other part against everyone if only for a night.

i don't do flavour and in a proper game (i.e. not a ratskept game) it's never needed but i would love to have things spelled out to me

I'm not saying it wasn't amusing, but it didn't make me change my mind.

Probably won't be around much. My in-laws were supposed to go home today but my mother-in-law went to the hospital last night with a collapsed lung due to liquid around her lung. They drained it today and sent the fluid out for testing. They x-rayed her and the fluid is coming back.

Anyway, still thinking LD is scum.

[With Testy's] spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;

Seriously, though, what's the case against Ksen? I'm pretty sure we're doing worse than chance right now, which makes me fear manipulation.
