    "Well it's hardly a secret that you either want it for yourself, to improve your own magic, or you have a secret buddy in a cave somewhere who longs for your sweet, sweet, loving mana. I am not here to judge. But I will point out that you are being quite silly when you talk in riddles like you're actually hiding some great secret, when you make it obvious by your own vote what you intend to do with the mana."

    "I would love to have some water mana. The purpose being something quite secret. But you shouldn't speculate, because you will never be able to guess what my true intentions are. I might need it for decorative reasons. My halls are quite bare without these orbs of power adorning them."

    "Of course I either intend to use the mana myself or pass it along to another. I simply don't know if it's wise to state my intentions so publicly, when there are murderers still among us."

    I think the champions already got enough body, let kill fire have it.

    My fellow governor choxorn appears to desire the earth orb and I see no reason not to give it to him.

    Hah! Of all the arguments to make I am untrustworthy, that is your case? I should hope you have a better argument than that!

    And regardless, it appears to me we have other more despicable fellows, such as the good governor Choxorn. First he demands the Death mana for himself, and then follows that up with a "request" for this Earth mana when he is denied? Methinks he is more than a little desperate to keep the power of mana out of the hands of those who would expose him for what he really is.

    As for the mana itself, I see no reason to not give Catharsis that which he desires. He is a strong warrior, why not augment those skills to better crush this, or perhaps these, accursed murderers? The Earth Mana I refrain from judgement for. I have no use for it, but thus far only Choxorn has claimed it for himself. I should hope there is an alternative candidate here.

    Choxorn the Governor of Durnovaria can have Earth Mana, I trust he will do what is right.

    Distasteful news last night, I can only pray that those who would drain Classical Hero would not strike again. My condolences to the Ljolsofar.

    Catharsis the Gregori Adventurer can have the body mana

    I suspect KingMorgan had a hand in the death of Takhisis the usurper. Normally I would rejoice at such a death, but the demon still lives.

    I fail to understand why asking for mana that I can actually use makes me despicable, Mr. Bedwetter. Besides, I wasn't even the first to vote myself the Death Mana.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to voice my suspicions as to recent events.

    I am growing suspicious of Visorslash and by extension, Jaremma for the following reasons.

    1: Early last day, the two of them spoke in what appeared to be an almost scripted conversation (OOC: Their back and forth commentary indicates that they were observing the thread for a while (5 minutes in one case) and checking the thread often (that is the largest difference between comment times), so expecting rapid responses to their posts). This ended in the conclusion that it is wrong to question mana claimants on what they may do with the manas.

    To add to my case for this debate being scripted, Jaremma surrendered his case instantly, without providing any justification for his initial opinion.

    2: Jaremma refers to the Prespurian Lord Visorslash's age. This may seem as an innocent remark, but it indicates that the two may know more of each other than they let on, which is suspect, given that they are from different lands.

    3: They were both quick to claim manas, in Jaremma's case, a mana of a type that does not fit what he claims to be (death mana, for a priest?). Instead of reason to support them they both offered bribes:

    4: King Morgan got the Mana instead of Visorslash, and now, Visorslash is quick to accuse KM of being a murderer.
    _____________________________________________

    However, because of how specific Visor's accusation is (not just the murderer but also his target), I would also agree to lynch King Morgan, and, if he proves innocent, then lynch visor on the above suggestions, while if he proves guilty, then discount my suspicions as paranoia.

    What are your thoughts on this matter?

    Actually, wait. I can't read :hammer2:. Visorslash got the raw mana, not king Morgan, which renders my last accusation void. That, coupled with the fact that Jaremma claims to be an elf (so, just as for myself, all would appear young to him) renders two of my accusations invalid.

    This means that Visor's accusation seems much more credible, so I shall follow it, at least until King Morgan speaks up.

    There's a hurried back and forth between the Glevum Axeman and his axe. The two are quite heated, but in the end it seems the Axe has carried the argument. The Axeman raises his voice

    Axe no like this. Nintz accuse choxorn of being bad. Next guy (Visorslash) votes to give items to choxorn. No commentary in between. Axe think if Visorslash thinks choxorn is so trustworthy (will "do what's right"), he should step up and say something, and not ignore case against choxorn. Or does he not want to stick his next out and attract attention? Sneaky sneaky. No like sneaky sneaky. That's a discussion point being avoided.

    Well, obviously. You two are both Ljosalfar, right? Unless I am mistaken, the Ljosalfar are all elves.

    I find it amusing that you don't know such a basic demographic fact about your own country, Ambassador.

    That guy? Seems more like a lost tourist than an actual warrior.

    I can only hope such an act was the dousing of a perilous fire~!

    These boisterous or even cowardice men are not the ones to give the mana without reservations!

    Doesn't some ljosalfar want the earth mana? Probably?

    I have not heard of his skill and know it cannot compare to mine, but is the firebow worrying some about the demonic work? I would love to hear what suspicions those loyal to Exar have on who may be doing such evil deeds.

    I also think Secret Scribe seems like the fellow that would do such a thing to an innocent elf.

    I would love to speak to an elf sometime. The elves can be the strong allies of the Calabim.

    Spoiler :
    [OOC: I won't be home for a couple of days at this stage (so I can't be thorough) but there seems to be several people who are still quiet - inactive or flying under the radar?]


    We know that there are two murderers here - the demon and the vampire. Lord Visorslash believes King Morgan to be the demon but I want to suggest that the vampire murderer may even be someone who does not admit to being a vampire. I doubt a Calabim vampire would do such a thing - it is illogical and illegal to drain someone completely!

    Those strangely silent types amongst us are the ones I suspect of being the rogue vampire - speak now or forever hold your peace Darth Caesar!

    If you must kill me, do it because you think I'm the demon/usurper/threat not because I suspect someone.

    The consul stumbles out of his room, clutching some scrolls and mutters something about "hulking brutes" and "ruining all his hard work." He walks with a slight limp.

    Hello all, yes, yes, this is quite the situation we have here isn't it? A demon attacking in the night and some unknown foe striking at us, and then these usurpers. And then in addition to that, we have another foe! The consul dramatically flourished his toga, revealing blood stains. I was attacked last night! Some cowardly man seeking to undermine my noble quest struck at me in the night and has wounded me! I know not who he is, but I am sure we will find him.

    Let me ask you a question then.

    If you were a threat to us all, what kind of threat would you be?
