And I have known the eyes already, known them all—
The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase,
And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin,
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,
Then how should I begin
To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways?
And how should I presume?
Frustrated at their lack of success in ferreting out the unpatriotic or just plain murderous amongst them, most of the passengers distracted themselves with liquor and games of shuffleboard. Some, however, had more nefarious goals in mind. One passenger crept up on Mr. Allernton as he typed feverishly in the empty smoking lounge and whispered, “For the movement!” while dispassionately garroting him. Another passenger accompanied Mr. Mirage to his cabin, feigning interest in his unique art, and promptly bludgeoned him over the head, murmuring, “Like a fly without wings.” To the killer’s surprise, Jake Dodgson shot straight up in Mr. Mirage’s bed and exclaimed, “I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you…” Whatever words of wisdom he had next in store went unheard, however, as the killer swiftly drove a chisel through his eye.
Otakunomike is dead. He was a true Patriot and an Illegal Voter.
Mirage is dead. He was a true Patriot and a Gun Club President.
Thinking Of Changing My Name is dead. He was a true Patriot and Bulletproof.

Each player began the game with a one-shot power (meaning a power that can be used only once during the game). These powers vary widely in nature and scope, and some have an expiration date. Some powers may have unpredictable consequences. One-shot powers can be day or night powers (as specified in individual QTs), and some one-shot powers cannot be blocked.
A player’s faction and one-shot power will be revealed upon death, but not the power’s exact nature, nor whether that power was used prior to the player’s demise. If a player is killed before triggering his/her one-shot power, that power will be assigned to another player by the Graveyard (deceased players). The Graveyard participants are forbidden from revealing their partner(s) (if any) to each other but may otherwise discuss the game freely in the Graveyard.
Every living player of any faction is eligible to receive an unused one-shot power, but no player may hold more than one one-shot power at a time. Players with an unused one-shot power who are assigned a different unused one-shot power will have to choose which to keep; the discarded one-shot power will then be retired. Check you QTs to see if you’ve received a new power.
You vote by replying to the very first comment, appropriately titled VOTE THREAD. It is easy to find if you sort comments by oldest. To change your vote, simply post another reply. DO NOT EDIT ANY VOTE. Only votes posted as a reply to the official VOTE THREAD will count.
Note that if the vote is tied at twilight (end of day), there will be a runoff vote between the tied players, with twilight extended by one hour. If the runoff vote also results in a tie, another player besides the tied players will be randomly selected for death.
Please make at least 3 posts per game-day, or you will be replaced.
DO NOT EDIT POSTS even if you made a grammatical error that is haunting you. Rather, read through and think carefully about your comment before posting it. Editing a post may get you mod-killed, and that would be sad.
DO NOT QUOTE OR POST A SCREENSHOT FROM A QT TO THE MAIN DAY THREADS. You are free to make claims about your powers and allegiance on the day threads, but those claims will not be confirmed or denied by the moderator.
If you have questions that may reveal sensitive information, you can ask them in your personal QT. Please note that you are encouraged to ask questions about the rules of the game, how your powers work, and whatever else comes to mind.
Attack arguments, not people. Everyone has a different playing style. Be accommodating to them. Role playing is welcome but not required (though do try to be generally consistent with the setting and time period [e.g., no cell phones]). Finally, remember that it’s just a game, and have fun!
