“A tremendous feeling of peace came over him. He knew that at last, for once and for ever, it was now all, finally, over.”
-Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless
> look up
Through the glass dome you see that the universe is moments away from ending. Galaxies are colliding into nebulae, black holes are growing blacker, and existence strains to push back against inevitable oblivion. It is horrifying and beautiful.
> look north
You see Lemony Snicket crouched in a corner, madly scribbling on several pieces of paper. Abigail pines for her husband. The green ranger is listening to Phish on his iPhone.
> look east
You see Zapp Brannigan at the bar, desperately hitting on a disinterested female alien. Next to him, Bobby Bottleservice is gesticulating wildly as he tells the three-headed bartender about “entrepreneurshipping”. The goose sneaks up behind them and successfully steals both of their wallets.
> look west
You see a quiet man in a large dusty trenchcoat sitting against a window and sharing a smoke with Sanji, Prince Herbert and the frog in a lengthy discussion about swamp real estate, and a few dozen Lintillas scattered among the crowd, looking for anyone who could validate their parking before the Universe ends.
> jail vogon
There are no more Vogons left in Milliways, they have all been vanquished. If you are in the mood for terrible poetry, you can always borrow the green ranger’s iPhone and listen to Phish lyrics.
(The waiter walks by, delivering a final round of drinks to the Zansellquasure Flamarions.)

You cannot jail the goat.

Please let this go.

I don’t know who that is.
> who is the ravenous bugblatter beast of traal
I can’t just tell you that.

Tell you what?
What can I help you with?
> how do I catch the ravenous bugblatter beast of traal
The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal is known for its never-ending hunger and mind-boggling stupidity. When confronted by the Beast, some hitchhikers have been known to wrap their towels around their head, as the creature assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you.

You cannot see anything.

There isn’t much air left in here.

11 Diners (Town)
Diners win the game when all Vogons and Independent roles are dead before the Universe ends.
10 Vanilla Diners have no night actions.
Several players have secret passive powers, though they are still considered Vanilla Diners:
- Boghog: The meat of a Boghog is completely inedible, so they cannot be eaten by the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. (The Boghog can die from any other means, such as day-kill or Vogon kill.)
- Agrajag: Has an optional one-shot kill that is only activated when Agrajag dies.
- Garkbit: Each day, Garkbit (the Head Waiter at Milliways) chooses a special rule from a menu. This rule is revealed to all players at some point during the day, and only applies to that day. Since this is a day action, Garkbit’s power cannot be blocked or detected by Zaphod Beeblebrox. If killed, another Diner will be randomly selected as the new Garkbit.
Colin (Jailer): A small, round, melon-sized, flying security robot that can put a target player in jail for the night, protecting and blocking them. Cannot choose the same player two nights in a row and cannot choose themselves.
Zaphod Beeblebrox: One player who is now considered a Vanilla Diner.
1 Independent Role
Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal: Serial killer. Wins the game once they eat 6 players.
No quoting or screencapping from QTs. Do not ask other players about their QTs in an attempt to figure out what role they have.
You cannot edit any of your posts. The mod will know!
Participation: You must make a minimum of three posts per day to avoid being mod-killed or replaced.
Tiebreaker: If a day ends in a tie vote, no player dies.
