Werewolf XXXV: D&D, Day 7: Wolves of the Dwarven Depths

“If I am to be judged by those who come after me, let me be judged for the truth.” — Raistlin Majere

More determined than ever to find the damned Mac Guffin and be done with it, the last of the companions trudged through the labyrinth, encountering more clever Dwarf-crafted traps and the occasional skeleton of adventurers less lucky than they, making progress but still lost within the maze of passageways. “I feel like a rabbit in a warren,” grumbled Turminder. “I think it’s lovely!” replied Magda brightly. “It’s so dank and musty. Do you think there are rats here?” “I should hope not!” exclaimed Holimion. Magda’s face fell, but Holimion didn’t notice as he turned the next corner and froze. The others ran into his back, making him stumble forward. “Watch whaer yer goin’, ye staff-waevin’ id. . .” Baern’s voice trailed off as he followed the direction of Holimion’s stare. The passage was a dead end, and in its center sat a writhing nest of wolf-spiders, two of the giant arachnids guarding their newly-hatched young crawling over the mummified body of what looked like a Theiwar Dwarf, though the poor creature was so desiccated it was difficult to tell for sure. To the adventurers’ dismay, a faint whimper escaped the spiders’ victim as one of the spiderlings sank its fangs into his cheek. “He’s – he’s still alive,” whispered Holimion, crouched on the passageway floor, trying not to move. “I believe this is the part where we run away,” Magda advised in an equally hushed tone. At that moment, the larger of the adult wolf-spiders turned its eightfold gaze to the party and began scuttling towards them with astonishing speed. “RUN AWAY!” shouted Baern as they bolted back around the corner and down the path. It took Holimion a moment to get to his feet, and he could practically feel the spider’s dripping venom on his neck as he ran. Still, the Elf was fast. He managed to catch up to his companions and probably would have made it to safety had not one of them tripped him.

Dr. Nick / Holimion is dead. He was Town.

The others continued to flee, not looking back even when Holimion began shrieking in horror. They turned randomly down passage after passage, long after the last screams died away and the skittering of the monstrous spider’s legs could no longer be heard. They only stopped running when they rounded a corner to find themselves in an alcove leading to a large stone door etched with runes that glowed faintly in the gloom. The door had no handle or hinges, but in its center were two palm-shaped impressions. “Now what?” asked Turminder. “One may enter here, or two, but never three,” an unexpected voice intoned, though no speaker appeared. “Now you must choose.”

Remember that, while the Campaign QTs will remain accessible for investigative purposes, players cannot post there any longer. All Town discussions should now take place on the OT.

Note: Today is the last day of the game.

*****
Here is a mini-wiki QT with some common terminology and rules used in the Avocado’s version of Werewolf/Mafia. Refer to it if needed, especially if you’re a new player. All players are also encouraged to add to it as they see fit.

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 or withdraw your vote, simply post another reply. DO NOT EDIT OR DELETE ANY VOTE. Only votes posted as a direct 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 may be replaced or mod-killed.

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 OPEN THREAD (OT) OR SHARED QT. You are free to make claims about your powers, roles, and alignments, 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 individual QT. 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. Players have different playing styles; be accommodating to them. Role playing is welcome but not required (though do try to be generally consistent with the setting and your race/class or clan). Finally, remember that it’s just a game, and have fun!
