It felt almost fitting to be surrounded by so much snow, since today’s discussion felt like the meeting point of the snowball effect and an avalanche. A general calm had gripped the group for most of the day, as ideas were politely passed around like near-empty water-flasks. But it takes only the slightest disturbance of the snow on a mountain’s peak to bring it all crashing down.
Ultimately, with flared tempers and open hostility, as clubs were raised and stones were gathered for the throwing, it seemed to become clear who to blame for the disturbance. So much pent up anger, so much aggression at the world and at the situation, and although there wasn’t consensus there was the best possible target to go for. Hungry for a way to progress this hopeless situation and hungry to distract themselves from the grim future, the mob descends upon their chosen target.
Starx, who claimed wrote little messages on wooden tablets she painstakingly prepared (maybe hoping to restore a sense of civilization to the group or perhaps hoping to further their own agenda) was beaten 6 feet under within seconds. It was only once the adrenaline wore off that everyone realised, rumbling through Starx’ pockets to check for any incriminating evidence, that they genuinely were what one could call a Postman in this frozen hellscape.
It is too soon to tell if this was a good thing or a bad thing, for truthfulness and innocence are two separate things, but the release of tension from the group was at least a welcome thing. With this post aggression clarity, perhaps we may come closer to resolving the crisis of surviving in the middle of nowhere and perhaps even get closer to catching the murderer.
@Starx has been lynched. They were the Postman. They left a will and testament scratched onto a wooden tablet:
Night 1 will last up to 18 hours. You can only make one forum post during the Night. Night will end earlier if all currently alive players opts into it in their confessional.
