I can never read him.  Last game I only realised he was scummy by PoE

He's not done anything this game, yet, has he?

I was really hoping for more interactions from the several players I mentioned, hopefully tomorrow they participate more.  Keep on them, town needs a lot more data to pull this off.

nostrum is mayor. Anyone who prefers ksen over rach should vote for him or the lynch is rach.

Well, at least if rach is telling the truth about being town vanilla we haven't lynched a town special. :(

They were not simple folk, you see, though they were happy. But we do not say the
words of cheer much any more. All smiles have become archaic. Given a description such as this
one tends to make certain assumptions. Given a description such as this one tends to look next
for the King, mounted on a splendid stallion and surrounded by his noble knights, or perhaps in a
golden litter borne by great-muscled slaves. But there was no king. They did not use swords, or
keep slaves. They were not barbarians. I do not know the rules and laws of their society, but I
suspect that they were singularly few. As they did without monarchy and slavery, so they also
got on without the stock exchange, the advertisement, the secret police, and the bomb. Yet I
repeat that these were not simple folk, not dulcet shepherds, noble savages, bland utopians. They
were not less complex than us. The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants
and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual,
only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and
the terrible boredom of pain. If you can't lick 'em, join 'em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise
despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have
almost lost hold; we can no longer describe a happy man, nor make any celebration of joy. How
can I tell you about the people of Omelas? They were not naive and happy children - though
their children were, in fact, happy. They were mature, intelligent, passionate adults whose lives
were not wretched. O miracle! but I wish I could describe it better. I wish I could convince you.

rachmarie raced joyously across the Green, her horse's mane and tail whipping in the wind, while overhead colorful pennants snapped in the same strong breeze.  She was in the lead,

The horse faltered, spooked by the row of Omelans who walked solemnly toward the horses and their riders.  The sudden stop caught rachmarie by surprise, but she was able to hang on, hands dug into her horse's mane.

"What is this?" she asked cautiously.

"We are saddened by your choice, but you must do what you must do."

Choice? rachmarie wondered.  And then it struck her.  Of course, she couldn't stay.  She slipped off her horse, and planted a gentle kiss on his steaming muzzle.

Without another word, she turned on her heel and walked.

The mountains were so very far away.
