One opinion won't silent the rest, will it, soulhack? Think about it - if we blame Flippo, he'll be punished. If we lame Strop, no-one will be punished.

WE need to blame whoever will create the least detriment by being blamed.

Ok so Strop stays in charge regardless...... blaming him gets us nowhere.

No, blaming him keeps us all safe. You're missing the point - if we blame Strop, no-one will have ill from it. If we blame ANYBODY ELSE, someone will suffer. Do you want to do needless harm to someone over your own self-empowerment and doubt?

Leon says: A bit unsane. Unsane ain't a word, punk. Look, I don't like you and I ain't about to get chummy with you because of some blandishment. Don't try to use this as an opportunity to gain allies; you will only humiliate yourself.

Well sword guy, you're right on one thing: Strop's a good man. He would, however, do it to test us. Because the gaykery can be rebuilt easily. Our relationships... not so much. But his plan ended in predictable failure.

THAT IS THE POINT!!! This is an elimination contest! Strop needs a way to eliminate on of us. The point is not to get rid of flippo

I'm not trying to gain allies. If I was, I'd be acting uncharacteristically kind. I was simply speaking what I thought to be the truth from where I stood. This is an opportunity to sharpen our bullet-dodging skills, not make friendships and have tea and cookies. That much I agree with. But at the same time, being adversarial will only get us all into deeper problems later on.

OOC: I got hyper ninjaed. Shouldn't be watching TV while I post

Leon says:


Testa, have you been listening to me or Leon at all over the past few minutes?
You have. Keep your shit together, mate. It's gonna be a long trial.

Think with your head, not with your morals. This isn't a moral equation.
But it is. Why would you want everyone to win if not for morals. Thinking of morals as weak or worse, non-existent will only destroy you.

Ok that is to much for me to understand. Can you put that into simpler terms?

It is. I hope I have enough Excedrin for this thing.

Morality is something we need to consider over the whole trial, but now we need to come to a logical consensus over who should be blamed. This is the mystery of a bakery that got blown to hell, not a Shakespearean tragedy. We all need to get out this unascathed, but Strop is invincible either way.

OOC: Gametesta's right: Blaming Strop is against the rules.

Leon says: Chill, you are still doing it. Making friends and acting as though we aren't enemies is the same. That being said, you're right: I am getting ahead of myself. Maybe I'll end up working with you, not against you. I hope not. Nothing personal, you just reek.
