Welcome to Round 3!

Frightening Fall Fatalities. . . . .


The Country was recovering from a hot, dry Summer, and looking forward to the rewards of Fall. Yes, Fall was here, bringing cooler days, chilly nights and the turning of leaves to the beautiful shades of red, orange, yellow and brown. You could smell Fall in the air, and it was delightful. Little did anyone know that there was a crazed maniac on the run . . . killing as they roam the country. . . . . who will be their next victim?

Unfortunately there were more than one victim. . . . . but no one has made the connection between the 4, yes 4 fatalities. . . . One main reason is because 3 of the victims, all from different areas of the country, kajish, from Hawaii, Spud from Idaho and talanpoe from California. . . . . were all reported missing, but never found. Some of their loved ones hold out hope that they will be found alive, but for Spud. . . . it's been almost 2 weeks. Hope is running out for these folks, and little does anyone know, that their dissapearances are all connected. the 4th victim, Babyjuice, who resided in Florida, was found hanging from an orange tree. . . . with a message pinned to her back. It read. . . . . for those that are unaware. . . . . she was in the wrong place, at the wrong time. . . . . how fortunate for me. The community Babyjuice was from, is hoping this is an isolated incident, little do they know, there's a mad murderer roaming the country, killing whoever they choose.

Meanwhile, north of Florida, in the beautiful state of Georgia, a family has reported their daughter missing. Unfortunately she, 4wheels, was found dead, along with her friends Chunnie and Rhythmic. They met every Thursday evening, in Chunnie's garage to practice. They were in a Heavy Metal Band that they had put together while still in High School. 4wheels was the drummer, chunnie played bass guitar and Rhythmic served as lead singer, and also played the harmonica. . . . they were a great band. But sadly, they were found dead . . . . 4wheels sitting at the drums, Chunnie still clutching his bass guitar and Rhythmic. . . . . standing at the mike, clutching his harmonica with his teeth. . . . all were still in place, as if they were still playing and singing. There was a note, hanging off the front of the drum set. . . it read - "Here's your next victims . . . . their crime? I don't like Heavy Metal." The police took this as a clue, and started thinking that maybe, just maybe these deaths were related to the others reported across the U.S. Then they received yet another call. . . . it was from Paul's wife, in New York City. . . . she reported that her husband did not make it home from work, and wanted to report him missing. The officer that took the call tried to reassure her, that maybe he was just working late, but she didn't buy it. She knew something bad had happened to her husband. . . . eventually, the police would realize this too. . . . . .


Message from the Grave . . . .

From Rhythmic ~
I don't have much to say. I will confirm that I was an optional firing. I don't really have any good suspects - maybe nicats or masoni. Jayo is also on the outside of my radar. Of course you see how my thinking on Paul worked out.

Sort of a mute point about Paul... he definately is not the boss and was on the mandatory firing list.

The memo is close to French, but it seems to be missing something in the translation. I got a translation of "I'm telling it to you straight" or "I can't do anything about it" but its not word for word

Edit: Ok, I just did a google translate and it came up with "I'm sorry but I have to kill you" from some Google French translator. Goes in line with the boss theme.

I put a safety vote in for now for Bradon... have a busy day tomorrow and will not be back until tomorrow evening. Enjoy! Edit #2 - confirmed vote

The memo says "I'm sorry but i have to kill you." Babyjuice goes to either a French Language School (a school in which the primary language of the school both instruction and administration is in French) or is enrolled in French Immersion (a school attended by kids who speak a first language other than French, but most classes are taught in French) so she would indefinably know how to write the memo in French. Since this is an openly known fact I don't think Baby would write the memo in anything other than English. With so many translation programs online anyone could have written the memo.
I won't be back until later this afternoon or tonight so I will safety for Kal.

EDIT: Just out of curiosity, Randy where did you come up with those first 2 translations? They are not even close! Even with my very rusty French I knew what it said immediately.

Wow - quick turn-around! This Boss means business.

The French won't really reveal much, I think. In the States, French is commonly offered in high school (I took 3 years of it). The Boss was probably just feeling fancy.

I'm not sure where my vote is going yet; I have not placed a safety. I will be back on at lunchtime to make some sort of decision.

I'm going to continue my vote for Elios. I do agree with HABS, anyone could go to Google Translate and get the wording for the memo, exactly as it was posted. I suspect the Murderer is trying to implicate one of our Canadian players since the chosen language was French.

So, with two votes for me, I welcome the opportunity to join the other two clears, so I will continue to stay out of any majorities again.


Edit vote locked in and confirmed.

As stated by myself and others I think we should focus more on what the memo says and its tone rather than the language. While anyone can take French in HS in the US EVERYONE (with very few exceptions) is forced to take it here. When I was in school we started it in Grade 3 and had to take it up to and including Grade 9. That being said even without Google Translate anyone with even a year of French would be able to come up with that sentence. Will switch my vote to go with the Brandon majority.

It's a little concerning to me that, in Round 3, we're still clearing the people who agree to - and even ask to - be cleared. I don't think the Boss would be so obvious as to argue against being voted for (aside from saying "it wastes time") but I highly doubt s/he'd ask for more votes. Though I guess they'd do so if they felt pretty certain a clear majority would not be reached... like now.

All that said, I have no other thrilling ideas and I want to be as helpful to the group as possible before I'm canned. Voting for Bradon so that maybe she can be cleared if some of us are fired.

Habs... my first two translations was on a french to english translation site... sorry, can't tell you which one. But the words it translated was not word for word what I put in... and hence why I first said it was missing something in the translation. After I posted that, I did do a google search and just said "Translate . . . (the phrase)" and got the clear and precise translation. I never took French. At first, I thought it might have been Spanish, but that was quickly thrown away and then I looked closer at the words and figured it could be French. Hey, I tried, and I did get the right translation. Sorry it was hard for me when it is obvious to those who speak French.

In any case, I did not vote for Bobbi to clear her or to be part of a majority... just a safety vote as I stated. I was super busy today and was not sure I would remember to come back on before the round was over. Hence... safety vote.

I am changing my vote to Phyton - again only a safety vote. However, I actually have a little suspicion on Bobbi, so I hope the majority on her does its job! Edit... vote on Phyton confirmed!

And Habs... unless you absolutely believe Bradon to be the boss, you really should stay out of a majority for now... it will make it harder on the boss if we end up with 4 cleared people and only 2 or 3 other possible players who have not been cleared.

And I totally, I mean totally agree with Elios... clearing people who want to be cleared is not a good idea... clear players who are really suspects.

Is there a set number of people for the boss to fire each round or is it all, (or some), who meet a certain criteria to get the chop?


I will vote for RG.

Now, no one can discuss who they actually voted for or if they changed it and did not disclose it, but I suspect having a list of the stated voted is acceptable(?). Jake never took the time to disclose his vote, if he had one, everyone else has posted a vote and it is here. Again, NO ONE discuss whether you did confirm your vote or whom you voted for at this time. I am taking kal's list and just updating it from when he (I know kal is a she, but she keeps calling other she's he's... so I figured she was trying to keep the talk gender neutral) left off:

21kaldridge21 - nicats
bradon182001 - elios
buu441 - nicats
Elios - bradon182001
HABS2933 - Roman
JakeTAD - ?
jayo - nicats
masoni88 - masoni88
Nicats - jayo
PYTHON - Rgw4
RGW4 - Python
RomanG417 - bradon182001
The majority vote is on nicats, with a secondary majority vote on bradon (not brandon)

Keep in mind that with all of Jake's talk in the last few rounds, he did not state a vote this round. This could be a super big mistake by him. He could have easily voted for someone who didn't have a vote on them when he voted and in the end... put someone else in a majority with two votes. If anyone not voting for nicats is fired, he easily could have made a secondary majority on an non-willing person, meaning that someone who voted for Nicats either is the boss/rat, or they did not confirm their vote, or changed it and did not say so.

Jake, I say this, because it is SO important to STATE your vote every round (TOO LATE NOW - SO DON'T IT).

Just saw this and didn't see a reply. Yes there is a set number of people that the boss may fire in any given round - the boss is told this when he is presented with the firing list. As the game goes on the number gets smaller (to account for fewer players left in the game). If there are a lot of mandatory firings the boss may not actually be able to fire anyone himself for the first round (sometimes more).
In a 20 player game for instance in round 1, there can be up to 4 firings, 3 in this game were mandatory which means the boss only got to pick one perosn to fire (to bring the total up to 4). There is however NO limit to the number of mandatory firings that can take place. In say round 1,if 8 people did not vote, they are all gone.
Being a lemming will get you placed on the firing list if you are an emplyee. If the boss gets 25% of the votes one of the names on the list is "THE RAT" (no actual name attached) if the boss gets 33% of the votes the rat is again listed but with a name "MR X (the rat)"


IF you were to remove all the veins in your body and lay them end to end - you would die. (You were expecting some obscure fact were'n't you?)
