Werewolf XXXIV: The Tarot Murders, Day Four: Wands at the Ready

As night fell, the investigators sought out their isolated, private spaces to mull over the situation. Cassandra Claire was used to such ponderings. She’d lost count of how many times had she’d settled in for a long think about why everything seemed to revolve around insignificant-ol’-her. Sure, she was plucky, but that didn’t explain why two brooding and impossibly handsome boys back home seemed to find her irresistible. How would she ever choose between them? And why did it seem that society’s fate rested on her shoulders all the time? Why did adults always seem to require her input before making any decisions? Why was everything up to her?

She thought about all these things as she got ready for bed, making sure to stash her oaken wand and ancient spellbook in a safe place. So many big questions. And if those weren’t enough to worry about, Cassandra Claire was about to add another big question to her list. If a plucky tween heroine is surprised by two murderers bursting into her house and stabbing her eighteen times, how does the world go on without her?


Cassandra Claire (ThoughtsThoughtsThoughts) is dead. She was The Magician. As the Magician, she could select a target. If the target was Town, any town-harming aspect of their power would be negated. If the target was a Wolf, their power would be negated completely.

(I’ve never read Cassandra Clare’s books, but based on The Hunger Games series and the first Divergent, made a stab at what the heroine might be like.)

10 6 5 4 Town
4 3 2 Wolves
1 0 Serial Killers

Reminders: Some players have Day actions, and some have Night actions. The Tarot does not only concern itself with the realm of the living, so players in the Graveyard still have a part to play. Since nobody is vanilla, it is possible that roles or powers will conflict with each other. In the event that a discrepancy arises, the person who submitted their action first will win the tie.

A player’s faction, role, and powers will be revealed upon death, unless revealing any of those would have an effect on the ongoing game.

DO NOT EDIT POSTS. Sorry you misspelled a word or made a coding snafu, but it’s here to stay. NO editing allowed. Read through and think carefully about your comment before posting it. Editing a post may get you mod-killed, and nobody wants that.
