While Marg may have a tongue of acid, I don't believe she has proven anything other than her disdain for your self-proclaimed emperor status, and just because someone votes first, does not mean they are automatically assumed to be a traitor of Rome.

No, I think my vote will rest on Kip for the moment.

Life at the villa has strayed far from the original plans of feasting and celebrations to Bacchus, while awaiting the arrival of the emperor.  Orgies have been cancelled, major 'domestics' have occurred, and everyone is hurling accusations.  Aiden was first to proclaim himself an Emperor when we gathered.  Why?

If you say so...

Also, how is one of my lovers snubbing you proof of my supposed 'deception?'  Perhaps it is you who are grasping at straws in a feeble attempt at drawing attention away from yourself  Caeli!

She reached out and tugged gently at a grape, pulling it free and popping it into her mouth as Ryven shouted his accusation.

"Everybody knows that when you need a political favor, you see Ryven. And considering how our families have been in a long-standing war since my grandfather's time, and it was only recently that we'd re-entered His Imperial Majesty's good graces... well, let's just say that I wouldn't be surprised to find you trying to undermine my family's rise in power, Ryven."

I've always been skeptical about your so-called rise in power.  I've always suspected nefarious deeds had some part to play in it, and now my suspicions deepen still.  I am the one who would not be surprised if you fooled us all and killed each of us to gain this 'rise in power.'  There can be no opposition if there is no one to oppose you, isn't that correct, Caeli?

"As much as I hate to be tactless about it, killing everybody in this room wouldn't gain me much," she responded wryly. "It would rather be a waste of effort."

Oh, of course not, I'm sure you have others conspiring with you, and once all is said and done, the lot of you will take over what's left.  We are all some of the most powerful people in Rome.  I never expected you to try something alone, but conspiring with others behind our backs is more believable.

Shaking her head in disbelief at the accusations flying about, Maeven took a rest on a nearby windowsill. "Julia Felix's death was a political move as surely as the summer day is long and Caeli stands to gain the most from such a removal."

OOC: In the interests of keeping things moving, I'll take us to the lynching -- no one seems likely to change at this point, and Siberian's vote wouldn't cause a tie in any case.

Final voting:

Aiden (4) - country, Saku, Marguerite, Kanrya
Caeli (2) - Ryven, Maeven
Marguerite (2) - Aiden, CirclMastr
Ryven (2) - Kip, Caeli
CirclMastr (0)
country (0)
Kanrya (0)
Kip (0)
Maeven (0)
Saku (0)
Siberian (0)

Still stunned over the loss of his love, Aiden did not resist his captors as he was dragged off to meet his fate, though he cursed them with his last breath for their ruthless, bloody killing of Josietta.  Otherwise, he welcomed the chance to join his beloved in whatever lay beyond this world.

His end was equally bloody, but at least mercifully quick, a sword killing him cleanly.  Alas, he was no more a conspirator than his lost lover was, but a loyal Citizen of the Empire.

The next day, after fitful, restless sleep, the guests once more awoke to find their numbers still smaller.  During the night, another innocent Citizen, Siberian, had been lost to a violent death, his blood staining the marble floor.

The situation was quickly growing desperate.  The little group huddled together, half-afraid of each other, but equally afraid to be alone in this dark place.  And there was so little time left.  Whose blood would be spilt next?

As his eyes took in the gruesome sight of the bloody corpse upon the floor, his teeth gritted in both sadness and anger.  Another had been killed.  How many more would have to die?

He eyed the others...country...CirclMastr...perhaps even Marg was to blame, but then he gazed upon Caeli.

"I do not doubt that this is your handiwork, Caeli.  Another dead to promote your family's rise to power, eh?"

The corpses of the faithful citizens are becoming piled in an action worse than any decimation program.   Yet, we still have no clear indication of whom to censure.

Ryven has laid the blame with many.  Those with whom Marg had been having a blue are now gone.  Could it be Caeli?

Ryven, you seem to have a determination to take Caeli out.  I wonder why you are so focused.

To resist the push, I support the assertion that country must be guilty.  Let him pay for these crimes.

Taking in the words of the others with sorrow at their dwindling numbers, Maeven looked from Caeli to country.  The others had been so sure only nights before that country had been the guilty party. Perhaps it was so...

Think carefully with your vote.  We few citizens can not afford to lose any more.  If you do not change position, with the coming of evening two citizens will have been be lost.  Give some thought to who might be the oracle.  Would that be a reason for Ryven's focus?  We don't know who the oracle is, but he has been focussed on one player.

While I am arguing to survive, consider that if two citizens disappear on day 3, then the  conspirators will outnumber the citizens on day 4 and can outvote and eliminate them at will.  The conspirators would no doubt be very pleased with this outcome - could all four of them be pointing at me to achieve this goal?
