That is simply the greatest.

 

Chapter might not be up tomorrow; where Chapter 4 was big for backstory explanation, Chapter 5 is big for the most awesome confrontation yet. I gotta make sure it's totally wicked.

 

It's also difficult writing dialogue for one of the characters involved.

Neither. They just use a LOT of really unnecessarily large words.

Luroka's almost definitely Mafia, considering that Sumiki went straight for his advice.

 

Voxumo is probably the spy, which is how he is able to kill people and know that Norik was a traitor. Now, this is quite a predicament... very much like what goes on in actual Mafia games.

(The rest of the chapter was pretty great, as always a pleasure to read. The Alliance intro was kinda weird because everyone had a description in parenthesis except for me, mine was a continuation of the sentence. *shrug* I don't think that was supposed to be like that.) =P

The RNG had the Mafia killing Chro, so we got the irony of you avenging his death instead.

Oookay.... Sorry for not posting in a while, but things are escalating fast. Like in the beginning of Mafia games, everyone is rubbish at lynching the correct people. =P Nice. And obviously, I look for my name everywhere, so now he's the de facto leader of a ragtag group of people! Woot! Though knowing Mafia, things will most likely go wrong at some point. 

 

The writing is pretty solid, no complaints there, just to let you know. I see the late Norik was a fan of Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness. =P 

 

EDIT: Screw you, Manaducus. You're the one that deserves to die if anything. Only Sumiki ranks higher on the 'needs to die' list.

And besides, JiMing is a top Bionifighter! Kaiser is a disgraced CEO! I think I beat you out in terms of cool.

I just realized what a magnificent genius Sumiki is, given that Luroka is Mafia:

“I trust that you wouldn’t condemn an ally,” Voltex whispered back. “Not this early in the game.”

 

“You know me so well,” Sumiki chuckled before turning back and scribbling down his vote before announcing, “I vote for Luroka.”

Or maybe Voltex knew that, Sumiki is even more of a magnificent genius, and Luroka is actually innocent.


Anyway, Vox, I think you and I are suffering from the same ego problem here. I assumed I would be the Ghost (mostly because I went undetected until the very end of the game as the Ghost, managing to remain in contact with both Turaga and other villagers throughout, which I felt was a noteworthy accomplishment... plus I have a track record of almost always being Mafia), but instead Scanty was the Ghost (and I was a regular). Similarly, you thought that you'd be the one to kill me (considering our "rivalry", which mostly consists of you murdering me, a cycle that was ironically possibly initiated by my trickery of you as the Ghost in that same game - I literally kept you alive and manipulated you to kill a bunch of innocent Matoran)... but instead Norik killed me.

Then again, the shotgun could shoot .45 caliber bullets.

And now to analyze my speech.

Hello there! Please allow me to shock you with my magical tricks of the ponies and the rotten apple cores that will be driven through the hard drives of your computers while the universe makes it rain flakes of snowy grass.”


Please allow me to shock you with my magical tricks of the ponies

I think of this as an reference of MLP:FiM's title, mainly the FiM part.

and the rotten apple cores that will be driven through the hard drives of your computers

Reference to the Zeroth sector of the hard drive, or the core, so with the word rotten, it means that I will delete the Zeroth sector of the hard drive, rendering it useless.

while the universe makes it rain flakes of snowy grass.

That analysis...

Also, I thought the shotgun was a little cooler. For reasons I will keep to myself, but are probably obvious.

Then again, the shotgun could shoot .45 caliber bullets.

Fired a .45 once, had a really strong kick. Also I don't think shotguns shoot .45, but don't quote me. I'm probably wrong about seeing as I've fired is a 12 gauge.

Anyway, that bit with meeting Pupwa was just... weird and maybe surreal. Had to read it over a few times to comprehend what I had just read. Glad to know I'm still relevant, granted it could be Xaeraz running around pretending to be me.

Also I need to do this:

BANG. BANG.

You shot me down.

BANG.BANG.

I hit the ground

BANG.

...

BANG

That awful sound.

Sorry just saw that and couldn't resist. One nitpicky thing: the first five bangs are italicized and in all caps while the sixth is only in all caps. I think you need to make the sixth italicized to remain consistent.

You are right, a shotgun doesn't fire .45 normally, but with modifications, maybe.
