I haz got my role.
I wake and feel the fell of dark, not day.
What hours, O what black hours we have spent
This night! what sights you, heart, saw; ways you went!
And more must, in yet longer light's delay.
With witness I speak this. But where I say
Hours I mean years, mean life. And my lament
Is cries countless, cries like dead letters sent
To dearest him that lives alas! away.
I am gall, I am heartburn. God's most deep decree
Bitter would have me taste: my taste was me;
Bones built in me, flesh filled, blood brimmed the curse.
Selfyeast of spirit a dull dough sours. I see
The lost are like this, and their scourge to be
As I am mine, their sweating selves; but worse.
-Gerard Manley Hopkins “'I Wake and Feel the Fell of Dark, Not Day'”
The light from the sun barely touched the darkened walls of the prison. Carl awoke with a knot in his stomach, like he did every morning. He sat up and surveyed the others; their eyes were sleepy and burdened. Their hope for a better world matched the dim brightness of the sun.
Some days were better than others.
Carl searched the room for his father. He found him standing in the corner of the shadows of the cell, loading one of the guns; preparing for their endless battle against the Dead.
Rick noticed his son looking at him, and gave him a nod of recognition. Carl nodded back without thinking, so used to this routine. Death was just around the corner, as it was every day. The thought of losing his father to the Dead crept into Carl’s thoughts as it did often, but he quickly shook it away.
"Be strong," he whispered to himself. With that he slowly stood up and headed outside.
SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED!!
It is now Day 1. Day ends 5/3/13 at 9:00 PM EST.
Oh good - a confirmed townie.
All you need is M-E-G-A-N-E
Vote: TheMissingno. (Stove)
Obvs mafia, tbh.
Death is around every corner. Well it is in every mafia, but especially this one because it's Walking Dead. I would like it if every single player would please go ahead and be active. Be brave. It's not the end of the world if you die.
Vote: Spectrum Achromatic Your vote was not brave.
Agreeing with Missy, not being afraid to die is a nice trait in a town member, and being active gives us information which is always a good thing :D I'm also happy that we have a confirmed town member right off the bat. With this being Day 1 I'm probably going to hold off on voting for now, although since this is a big game it would probably be easier to be aggressive early.
Look, guys, I found one!
@Yatagarasu Do you see what I see?
He agrees with you that being active and aggressive is vital, yet doesn't place a vote. He acknowledges that he won't be voting, but paradoxically muses that it would probably be better to be aggressive early. He's posturing.
It's reminiscent of his scumplay in Trouble in Newbieville, but I would find it scummy independent of his Meta regardless.
