Assassins' Guild Lent 2001: Day 33 and later

Monday, 26th February

Approximately half of the remaining players have declared that they would like to have a duel at the moment. Currently there are too many assassins left for a duel to be feasible, but as soon as the number has decreased somewhat, and all remaining players agree (or the term draws to an end) a duel can take place.

18:30 — Murder! Mayhem!

Edward "Baldric" Wallace and Robert "The Inverse Square Law of a Rational Function" Hiersemenzel and Dan "The Unusual Suspect" Credgington engaged in an orgy of mutual destruction:

The Emmanuelite corpses were found with the following report:

It transpires that "Delerium" and "Baldric" were one and the same, as were "Mrs. Faithful" and "The Inverse Square Law of a Rational Function".

Tuesday, 27th February

The incompetence forecast for tonight predicts several severe cases of wantedness and possibly one violent manifestation of divine anger (which might result in a supernova). Occultists believe that the symbolic power of at least one good direct attempt on the life of another assassin could banish such evil afflictions.

17:40 — Pacified Divinity?

Sergeant Danger did in the notoriously wanted Jamie "Supernova" Richards thusly:

Supernova's dying spirit impressed these last thoughts upon the Hermes mailspool:

Sergeant Danger has more to say:

17:50 — Stars are out tonight

"Macavity" murdered the still-warm corpse of Jamie "Supernova" Richards

Supernova seems to be playing the starring role tonight...

Superintendent and Deputy-Chief Tea-Lady "Dilemma" of Donut Division was also there, and he had this to say:

Wednesday, 28th February

Over three quarters of the remaining players have agreed to a duel now, but some still haven't voted yet (votes about duel are now displayed on the wanted list as well). Some suggestions for a duel site are:

Further suggestions welcome.

10:00 — Normality returns

PC "Normality" killed Eloise "Echo" Phipps

PC "Normality" has been promoted to Sergeant.

13:00 — Blade Runner strikes

Superintendent and Deputy-Chief Tea-Lady "Dilemma" of Donut Division hunted down and killed the rogue assassin Roop "Rhombo" Gupta. The officer's report follows...

"Dilemma" has risen, in an appropriately doughlike manner, to the lofty heights of Donut Division, of which he is now Master Kneader, Sugarer-in-chief and Top Tea-Lady.

An email sent to the umpires earlier today, pointed out the following:

Mmmmh...yes, I see your point... This affair needs to be looked into. But I'm sure Dilemma and Normality will soon solve the problem in a terminal way, otherwise we might really start suspecting them of corruption. If anyone has evidence to backup such allegations, please come forward.

19:20 — Corruption discovered

Sgt Normality also known as Dan Credington was found to be corrupt. The following evidence was provided by the computer specialists of the F&I departement of the police force:

21:17 — Redemption

The police officers from Emmanuel redeemed themselves by removing the criminal Anna "Pilchard" Taylor. Dilemma reports:

And the victim reports as well:

Anna "PC Matt U. Carrot" Taylor is now a policeman. Sgt Normality would have been redeemed, however...

So Dilemma dispatches his fellow police officer Normality as well. How righteous of Dilemma, truly in the spirit of Matthew 10:34-38

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her 
   mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or 
   daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
And we'll have to find another promotion for Dilemma.

All of the remaining players have agreed to a duel. There will be a truce starting at 18:00 on Thursday, 1st March (i.e. tomorrow). No killing anymore from then onwards. Time and place will be announced shortly.

Ticket Inspector "Matthew Garotte" has joined the police. It appears that he will be working together with PC Matt U. Carrot. Is there a deeper meaning in their names?!
