Just FYI: I am not Vahkos. I would appreciate it if everyone stopped assuming I was. I would not be stupid enough to draw attention to myself if I was Vahkos. I would rather appreciate not getting smacked in the face by a Wand of Death because of a rumor.

 

Thank you.

Hey everyone, Nioca just sent me a PM saying, "I'm the Pure Spirit and Omlette is Dionicio" — has anyone else received such a PM?

If what he said was true then you just told everyone his and omlettes roles for no reason. Even if its not true why take the chance?

Bound Servant

Those are all the roles he's claimed to be so far. If he's not Vahkos, then who is he?

I thought it was less likely that he was telling the truth than that he just made it up on the spot, and it appears I was right.

OH! Damn, such a simple way to prove I'm not Vahkos. Xelgion, I'm sending you an Antidote. Vahkos can't carry items, so it'll clear the air about this once and for all.

 

And then I want it back. I'll even send 5 coins along you can keep.

If you claim to be so many different roles, you'll probably end up getting attacked, which usually isn't a good thing...unless of course you're Vahkos.

Actually, it's to stop attacks. The idea was that uncertainty about my role would prevent people from attacking. Clearly, it did not take the idea of Vahkos, or loose cannons like Xelgion, into account.

There is no rule that says vahkos cant carry or use items.

 

Quote:

Vahkos

Nationality: Empire

Skill: Power

Attack: Magic

Immune: Poison

 

Ability: When anyone dies, you capture their spirit at the start of the following day. You may attack one person per day (you normally receive the first strike) in addition to sending out one of your spirits to attack. On the final day, you may send out as many spirits as you desire. If you have any spirits captured, when targeted with any ability that counts as an action (attack, ability use, offensive item use) the action fails and a random spirit attacks the offender. Spirits normally get the first strike and inherit all properties they had in life. After a spirit attacks (or attempts to), it is gone. You are immune to the antimagic status.

 

You are allowed to create a priority list of which spirits you want to attack and which ones you want to defend. You may not tailor your defense to specific character attacks.

 

Victory: You are the only survivor at the end of the game.

Where does that say that Vahkos can't use any items? Roles that aren't able to use items can still hold the items (i.e. Fae, Aimee is the exception), so you're not being very convincing.

Edit: Tarson!

I claimed to be many roles when I was the Bound Servant, physical immunity kind of went to my head, I guess. Nioca wouldn't have any spirits to save him this early in the game, so if he was Vahkos, he wouldn't be trying to get people to attack him, yet. I don't believe he's Vahkos.

Aw, damn, that's how I got killed by the Fae last time. A rule change I missed.

Alright, fine. I'll admit it. I'm the Darkside Blademaster. I was trying to find Dionicio, and the role claiming was to draw attackers to me. I didn't think everyone would panic and assume I was Vahkos, though.

So in order to prove you're not Vahkos you shoot yourself in the foot and announce that you're a role with a lot of enemies? ...especially an enemy that people often use poison against, which Vahkos is immune to...

Good luck getting anyone to belive that. After all the role switching and lying you did can anyone really be expected to believe anything you say? Why cant this just be another way to try and get an edge. Not that any of what you have done is over the line or too evil for comfort but thats no reason to trust you for the rest of the game.

I dont think your in any major danger anymore nioca. With such unknown going about I dont think anyone is gona attack anymore untill they get some confirmation. If someone has the wand of death or the real darkside blademaster(assuming its not you for that) comes out then you have a problem. Other then that I think youve managed to make a nice shield of unknown.

Wait a second...look at my conversation with Tarson. I didn't realize it, but look at the boldfaced words. He was basically claiming that he had solid evidence that Nioca was the trickster. Also notice how he keeps dodging my evidence that Nioca is Vahkos. Then, at the end, he says Nioca might be Dionicio. How is that supposed to make any sense?

 

Also notice Tarson's comments in this thread. His first three posts are in conformance with the "Nioca is Vahkos, let's kill him" bandwagon, then he suddenly changes heart and says that Nioca isn't in any danger and that he's created enough "unknown" to protect him. Either they're the Pure Spirit/Dionicio combo or two DLs. In other words, Nioca probably isn't Vahkos, he's just adopting a very unusual strategy.

 

Also, by observing the Who's Online list, I've noticed that Nioca keeps viewing a Private Message. I don't think he'd actually be trying to convince anyone. He's probably talking with his ally, or something like that.

Click to reveal..

I've also heard you're interested in the Darksider's targets, which I don't know anything about. Are you Machrone?

So far, he has claimed to be the following roles to people:

 

Infiltrator

Skribbane Addict

Trickster

SIC

Adventurer

Empire Spy

Dionicio

Bound Servant

Anama Hunter

 

He's obviously drawing a lot of attention to himself.

Dionicio works as well. He would serve well to gather info and talk to alot of people while claiming to be someone else, but I see your point about vahkos. Try and confirm who he is.

He was trying to Convice someone:me. He sent me another fake *i message this time as the darksider blademaster. Good thing I noticed he forgot about the phyical immunity. This doesn't mean he is vahkos but should be taken care of anyway. And I never said he was vahkos before now. Just took away his proof for him not being vahkos.

I am giving Nioca one last chance before I pull the plug on him, Vakhos or not. Either he is a slippery little fellow, or Vakhos, in either case, the game will run much smoother. Nioca, PM me soon with your correct role or your toast.

If you want to change your action, that is fine. Please, please, please follow this protocol:

 

1) Edit your old post by striking through your old action.

2) Make a new post detailing the new action.

 

Likewise, if you cancel, do step 1 and step 2 is:

 

2) Create a post indicating you are rescinding your action.

 

This helps me out a lot. It also helps you that way I do not process an action you do not want me to. If you do not follow this protocol and I mess up, it's your fault, not mine.

 

Otherwise have fun. Game sounds fun! smile

Sarachim attacked Nioca with a physical attack. That means that Nioca has physical immunities.
