Draftopia Daily News - Game Thread - Mafia Wins!!!
 


Four Reporters Found Dead

The bodies of Draftopia Daily News senior reporters Vidae, ImBrotherCain, Grizzlegom and BeerBaron were found over the weekend following their disappearance last week.

The foursome was renown for their groundbreaking stories which often exposed corruption and scandal within major corporations and the government.

Rumors were abound that, just before their disappearance, they had stumbled onto a massive corruption scandal within the Draftopia Daily News. Foul play has long been suspected in their disappearance.

Firm evidence against the DDN is severely lacking in the case, and many are afraid to step forth against such a powerful media juggernaut with any evidence they may have.

Regardless, the DDN has recently hired a batch of new employees. Will these new employees tote the company line or will they too set out to expose the corruption and scandal that their predecessors fought so hard to uncover?

Remaining Players:
  1. Shane
  2. Gonzo
  3. Cigaro
  4. Bulldogs
  5. Killswitch
  6. SBH
  7. Broth
  8. Rufus

With 8 alive, 5 are needed for majority

DEATHS:
Day 1 - CashMoneyDrew - Reader - Lynched
Night 1 - JRDrylie, Editor-in-Chief - Killed
Day 2 - D-Unit, Travel Writer - Mod-Killed

Coroner's Report

Beer Danger Baron 1988-2012

Beer Danger Baron, born June 11th 1988, was killed in his home on July 7th in a suspected break in gone bad. Police still have no suspects, but it appears that Beer was able to fight off the intruder for a while with a combination of his .454 Casull revolver, mixed martial arts and pen knife. He was finally shot several times by small arms fire and was found at the bottom of his stairwell, having drug himself there after the attack. His computer was wiped of all his recent work exposing corruption in the city.

Beer was known as a hardline liberal commentator on society and has won several awards for his work with the Draftopia Daily News. He was also very active in the ACLU and a strong proponent of both universal health care and free college education. He was one of the early pioneers of online journalism and was a prolific blogger in his free time. Despite the quality of his work, he was suspended repeatedly by the DDN for articles that failed to tote the company line. When they refused to publish one of his stories, he would publish them in a separate liberal journal online under the guise "Henry T. Wadsworth." He was also know for regularly appearing on Conservative talk shows as a counter point. He is survived by his 4 ex-wives 14 children, several mistresses and an unknown number of illegitimate children.

Vidae V. Vidaeus 1982-2012

Vidae V. Vidaeus, born May 21st, 1982, was found dead in his studio apartment of an apparent poisoning on July 7th. A potent mixture of cyanide and arsenic that was found in his hair, skin and clothes has been ruled the cause of death. All of his recent work files were wiped clean from his home and office computers leading to suspected foul play. The police, however, have no leads.

Vidae was a 5 sport star athlete at Draftopia high, and was considered a prime pro prospect in fencing, water polo, chess and rochambeau at Draftopia University. A severe hand injury, reportedly from a night of intense masturbation (though never proven) caused him to miss out on a pro sports career. He took up a position with the Draftopia Daily News, mostly as a sports reporter, but evolved into more general news when it was revealed that all of the Draftopia professional sports teams were using performance enhancing drugs. (The DDN owned teams are still fighting the chargers in court to retain their 14 titles and undefeated seasons.) Vidae is survived by his overbearing elderly mother.

ImBrotherCain 1988-2012

ImBrotherCain, writer for the DDN was killed in a savage beating near his home July 7th 2012. Cain was known as real life Cupid as his love advice column seemed to work wonders evidenced by his good friend Beer "Danger" Baron. ImBrotherCain was known as a lover of the outdoors and its wildlife. During his time away from the paper he was often seen tending to his flock of sheep. BrotherCain is survived by is Parents ImFatherAdam and ImMotherEve, his brother ImBrotherAbel, his flock and one special dog Nyx. Foul play is believed to be involve in his death, as his computer was wiped of his recent work and each of his collection of thumb drives was found crushed and burnt in the street near his home.

ImBrotherCain was found savagely beaten near the fenced in pen where his flock was grazing. The Draftopia police have suspected BrotherCain's brother ImBrotherAbel of committing fratricide. He is needed for questioning and has gone missing shortly after ImBrotherCain's murder.

Please direct any leads to the Draftopia Police.

Grizzle Bear Gom 1987-2012

Grizzle Bear Gom, born March 5, 1987, was found dead on July 7th, 2012 in the DDN office. Grizzle was best known for his secretive, long work hours which resulted in masterful pieces outing the corruption that plagues our city. He was apparently working late, per usual, on a story when he was attacked at his desk. After a short struggle, it appears Grizzle was eventually impaled through the eye by a sharp memo holder sitting on his desk. His employers also note that his most recent work was wiped clean from his hard drive and all relevant paper files related to it have gone missing. Grizzle is survived by his wife of five years, Panda, and two sons, Brown and Black.

I couldn't help but laugh at this part...but death is not funny.

I'll miss his love advice column, those are what really made me read this paper.

Is no lynch an option in this game? I'm not usually a proponent of the no lynch but it's always good to know our options.

Yes, no lynch is an option.

Caddy 07-09-2012 10:01 AM

I am a proponent of no lynch. Unless someone slips up on day 1, this will likely be my choice.

jrdrylie 07-09-2012 10:04 AM

Based on the initial writeup, each was killed in a different fashion (shot, poisoned, beaten, and stabbed). I hope that isn't an indication that there are four different killing factions lurking out there.

Snicho 07-09-2012 10:05 AM

Wow. They were all so young. Rest in Peace guys.

Gay Ork Wang 07-09-2012 10:12 AM

I kinda have an idea, im not sure if you guys want to try it or not.

Here it goes:

assuming we have a tracker/Watcher/cop. Come out now. BUT dont specify what you are. Dont specify if you are a tracker, a watcher or a cop. Just tell us you have investigative powers. Assuming we have a doctor he will survive day 1.

Now why come out?

Im hoping we can keep mafia on its feet. You will specify your target before going to night. Why would you do that do you say?

A number of reasons: Mafia dont know how to handle your move. If they frame or kill that person but you are a tracker, you will see it. On the other hand if they dont target him, and you are a cop, you get tampered free information, same with tracking someone. Mafia will have to decide if they are willing to waste their abilities or give you untampered information.


I dont know it sounded like a move that one could try?

And yes i know: HE IS TRYING TO GET SOMEONE TO OUT HIMSELF ALREADY.

I dont. Just trying to make a suggestion for a move.

I'm not sure about the number of factions but I thought the same, that there are probably 4 separate killers on the loose.

jrdrylie 07-09-2012 10:13 AM

Well we can't role reveal, so we'd have to be careful not to get modkilled. But it is an interesting tactic.

Gay Ork Wang 07-09-2012 10:14 AM

the clue is that it wouldnt be a role reveal. You are just stating that you are actually an investigative person.

Two mafia, serial killer, and vigilante? Or I could just be reading too much into it.

i think its just one mafia. 2 mafia and a serialkiller would be way too much for a 20 man game i think

killxswitch 07-09-2012 10:18 AM

I am expecting a lot of twists and new/modified roles in this game so I'm not going to count on this or that role yet.

I would think you are. Vigilante wouldn't even make sense in regards to the writeup, unless one of these guys secretly partook in some shady activity (GRIZZ)

Not saying they don't exist in the game, but it would be a stretch to take something like that from the writeup.

Since when has a vigilante killed on the opening day? For that matter a vigilante would be created by the opening kills.
