Ah, it appears everyone has finally decided to exit the previously-burning building. ‘Well done, ladies and gents,’ I say exuberantly as they exit the place, ‘very nicely done, what a show that was. Great job, everyone, you really excelled yourselves today, just an excellent performance, truly marvellous. Good work.’ And yes, of course I’m being politely sarcastic. Who the hell burns down a building for no good reason, and why do it? What a waste of good architecture, honestly. In any case, I begin strolling next to the group once they start being near me, since I don’t know where everyone is going.

Wwwwwell. That happened. I imagine that that’ll be coming out of the Speedwagon Foundation’s resources, so no loss to me. And, worst case scenario, I sue the foundation for trying to exhort funds from me for no good reason. I take note as some of the windows suddenly stop spewing flaming smoke, in favour of quite a fair quantity of water; at least one other person in the buildinbg has water-based magic, and quite powerful stuff at that. So… maybe one of the others of the group. Good to know.

[I’m just waiting for plot to occur near Rickard at this point, given that he’s outside. By the by, here’s a guess as to the plot: Pillar Men. Since we’re apparently going full JoJo with the Speedwagon Foundation and all that…]

Well, I had started climbing back up to my room, but then I heard some people fighting over something or other on the floor above me. So, back downstairs I go. I’d rather not reveal the full extent of my powers to anyone at this time.

[Please stop injecting events into my character’s backstory without my permission, Zombies. You’re suggesting that Rickard lacks any notability after some event that happened two years back, with nothing to suggest that he’d been involved in any such event. Don’t do that.]

Rickard Trassel
And there’s the word output from the boy. I’d kill him, but there’s witnesses. The best option, in my mind, would be to do as Richard says and take the boy downstairs. Maybe he’ll be punished for getting drunk on the job. Wouldn’t that be humorous to watch. I grab the boy and sling him over my shoulder, heading out of the room once the prince takes his leave of the space, and head downstairs with him to the front desk, where I sit the boy down on the nearest chair, then take a seat next to him and wait for everything to be resolved.

‘First of all, I have no idea what you might mean by “this”, considering that what happened was you barging into my room uninvited and attempting to sully my honour by referring to me as a thief, of all things. Secondly, I’ll have you know that I invited him in for a sip of wine, since he seemed to need the boost. Unfortunately, he got himself a tad too inebriated, as you can see, so I let him rest in the bed. I’m certainly not going to be using it, after all, given how short a time we’re going to be here for.’
Yes, that seems water tight, as long as the laundry boy says nothing whatsoever about what was actually happening. And even if he mentions that we were in the same bed, I can claim that he was perhaps a tad confused about my sitting on the bed near him, and have my force of charisma push the explanation to the point of conviction. Yes, that seems reasonable.

@crystalmask: My opinion is, we’re likely to vote for Gonkey in the long run regardless, most likely tomorrow if not today, and he rarely if ever has any significant impact on the game as a whole. By contrast, Puls is often a major contributor, yet this time around would appear to be voting Gonkey for no good reason, which could well be covering up a role that either requires Gonkey’s death specifically, or else benefits in some form from a target being lynched as soon as possible, which strikes me as something to be dealt with rather urgently, given that a lax attitude to the problem might lead to issues later on.

The Helltank issue is also notable, but as back says, there’s really not much reason to suspect him at this point, and in my case, not much I can add to the discussion regarding him. I don’t think he’s a significant target, at any rate.

Now, here’s a question for the GM that seems like it might be important to get an answer for, and might seem somewhat obvious at first glance, but begs asking anyway, in my opinion: Can one role number be picked out of the deck more than once? For instance, say role number 27, a standard Vigilante (which only appears once in the deck as the aforementioned number 27), was picked out of the deck for a player. Would it then be possible for role number 27 to be picked again for a different player, and therefore have two players as standard Vigilantes in the same game, or would role number 27 be removed from the deck entirely, thus negating any possibility of there being multiple standard Vigilantes in-game (and consequently of the same restriction applying to all roles, such that only roles with multiple number slots can be picked more than once by players)?

OOC:@BCLEGENDS: I dislike rape.

[No shit, everyone who isn’t deranged dislikes rape. Then again, I’m playing as an effectively deranged person, and don’t necessarily appreciate the plot- and GM-derived coincidence mucking up the scene I had in mind. Which, now that I read back over it, sounds a lot worse than it did in my head… uh… my point is, ]

Rickard Trassel
Wait, wait, thief? He has the audacity to- that will not stand. I get to my feet from my position behind the bed, and call out ‘Thief? How dare you accuse me, Rickard Trassel, of such, when this is in fact my own allocated room you have trespassed upon? And on that note, please do explain why you are in here, good sir, for I highly doubt you were directed to a preoccupied room by the front desk, if they’re doing their jobs correctly.’ I’m trying not to be offensive, since I have the distinct feeling that that voice belongs to a certain royal, but I really do take offense to the notion that I, Rickard Trassel, might be considered a common rogue under any circumstances. I mean, good God, that sort of accusation should surely be saved for the rabble, not a gentlemanly visage such as my own! How rude of him! I should rip his head off for this indignity! I shan’t, because I’d have problems with the organisation hiring us if I did, but I should.

[Oh, and by the way, the covers probably should’ve landed back on the bed, over the probably scared and confused laundry boy, as opposed to on the floor.]

Now, I’m torn as to whether or not I should vote for Gonkey or Pulsaris. On the one hand, Puls voted for Gonkey almost immediately, supposedly “for the lulz”, which suggests that either he’s being a massive dick, or has a significant reason to get rid of Gonkey ASAP; the mostly likely cases for the latter would be either that he’s a lyncher with Gonkey as a target, and knows Gonkey will be an easy kill if people don’t decide to turn on him, or that’s he’s a Jester, which is impossible considering the rules laid out regarding role possibilities. Either way, there’s probably a notable reason to vote for him, all things considered.

On the other hand, Helltank does make a good point about Gonkey – it seems to be the case in most games that he’s a part of that he doesn’t play very well, nor does he contribute much substance to any arguments, even when allowed to play past the first day. To wit, first-day roleclaims are never a good idea, for reasons skimmed over by back – either you get lynched regardless, or the non-town factions NK you to prevent a confirmed townie from having any sway over the vote. In short, it’s kind of a VI move.

How does this balance out, overall? To be honest, they’re both reasonable vote options. That said, I think Pulsaris is the more likely of the two to have a time-critical element to his role, and whilst it’s technically true that lynchers have no particular alignment, it’s also entirely possible that he’s got some other aligned role hinging on a certain target’s death. With all that in mind, I’m going to Vote: Pulsaris.

SHITSHITSHITSHITSHIT I fling the bedsheets up in such a way as to hide my escape, rolling over the boy and out of the bed on to the floor on the other side of it, out of sight of the door, in less than half a second; ideally, then, I am unseen by the time the covers land back over him. I fucking knew I should’ve locked the door behind me, this always fucking happens, and who the hell decided to wander into my room at a time like this? God damn it. Okay, okay, calm down, you probably weren’t seen, and at this point you can claim you were giving him the bed for his use, since you yourself have practically no use for it yourself, considering how little time you have to spend in the hotel proper. The logistics behind why you’re lying on the floor next to the bed can be worked out over time.

[@Sypher: Ah do what I waunt
@FlyingCat: He used to have the nickname of “Boyfucker”, before Gonkey’s character left the game. After that, I decided he should have less association with that particular aspect of his personality overall.

Well, this certainly looks like my opportunity. ‘My, my,’ I state coyly, ‘Whatever would your boss say if they saw how drunk you’d gotten? Come, now, don’t you think a rest would do you some good?’ With that said, I lift him from the floor by the arms and help maneuver him over to the bed, pushing him under the covers, and idly slipping into the bed beside him, though not directly doing anything to the boy at the time. Some might call sleeping with a drunk person dishonest, even a violation, but considering my history, to claim I was above the act would be dishonest in itself. The only real problem is what the alcohol does to their breath, which can be unpleasant in some circumstances.

‘Oh, don’t presume I’m accusing you of anything. Like I said, it’s only a possibility that somebody might for whatever reason perform such heinous actions as those I detailed. You, of course, would never do such a thing. After all, what could someone like yourself possibly gain from it?’
Watching him sweat is pretty hilarious, to be honest. I will say, though, that nervousness doesn’t suit him. I pour out two glasses of the wine and hand one to him, sipping from the other slowly. An 1825 vintage, with a lot of flavour to it after nearly fifty years. Yes, I do understand the irony in that being the year of my birth. That’s the point, I believe.

[EDIT: You’re absolutely right, SadFire, and I have edited to account for the actual timing.]

Good hair, good build, reasonable height, and hey look the wine’s here. I do enjoy good wine. One might hope this peasant would also enjoy it. I assume he will, ideally enough to get himself blacked out. In any case, he’s asked a few questions, and I think I can handle answering them.
‘I, young sir, am none other than the illustrious Rickard Trassel, one of the richest men in Britain, and, as you so adroitly presumed, a member of the expedition you so alluded to.’ I put an undertone of confidence into my voice as I speak, that’ll most likely help persuade him of any acts I might want performing. ‘And on that note, I’m tempted to ask why you’d like to know about the expedition. I’ve been told the building is relatively secure, but you never know what spies have been sent in to gather intel… it’d be just awful, after all, if somebody had interrogated one of the expedition members without their knowledge, then gave that intel to whosoever was really interested in it. Not that I’d ever accuse you of something so awful, of course, I’m just saying that it’s always a possibility.’ The tone clearly implies what I’m thinking of him right now, whilst my actual thoughts basically revolve around what his reaction will be. I’m grinning inside. Messing with people is nearly as fun as murderfucking them, to be frank, so that’s something.

Ah. Laundry. That’s helpful. I move over to the doorway and take the towels from the boy, closing the door behind him and offering a drink from… I suppose room service, after a moment’s thought. I also take the opportunity to examine his features, and thus to see if he’s worth doing anything with, or at least trying to do anything with. Far too many people are false about their urges… then again, I’ve heard only a small percentage actually have interest in relations of a homosexual nature, of any sort, but then that’s their problem. I don’t think I’d be able to risk violating him, given who I’ve managed to put myself in the power of, but if I’m lucky…

Speedwagon-? Son of a bitch, that’s where all this fuss came from. Those bastards have been on my back since the 60’s; time and again, I’ve had to pay more than I’d like to have my lawyers fend their lawyers off, since they for some reason think that I’m legally obligated to pay for my so-called crimes… not, of course, to be confused with the Speedy Wagon Foundation, a similarly-named, similarly-successful, but distinctly different organisation that I recall thinking was the group Applebottom had the backing of. Damn it, if I’d known how close to the mark I was, I’d never have agreed to come here. But, I suppose it’s too late now… that’s a straight-up lie, actually. The contract said nothing about being forced to actually do the task, I think. But then again, there is always the tantalising allure of magical superweapons to consider… maybe that could help me to…
Hmm. Maybe. I’ll think it over more when the time comes. For now, I think I’ll continue playing along with their little quest and see whether I can twist it to my own wants, needs, desires, and so on and so forth. But for right now, rest. Because why not.

And that’s my cue to leave. I subtly exit the room, ideally in such a manner that nobody spots me, and head over to the front desk, where I ask for the keys to a room, which I then head up to.

I paid some attention to the discussion prior, but not a whole lot… everyone else had time to study their contracts, so I did the same, and signed it when I was satisfied that it wouldn’t screw me over. After that, it was mostly meaningless questions, with the only one relevant to my interests being the proposition that the monoliths are being used to generate a superweapon of some sort. Now, if I could get hold of something like that, it’d secure my continued existence in the world and allow me to pretty much do as I pleased… not that I need it, but I’d like that to be the case, certainly. Shortly, Applebottom herself leaves, and I’m shortly treated to the sight of the negro sending a pitcher’s worth of water the way of the vampire lookalike. The promise here is that I can make him look like an arsehole; quickly, and in theory without revealing that it was me who did it, freeze the water solid from afar as it leaves the pitcher, resulting in effectively a solid block of ice being thrown at Dorkula. Let’s see how they handle that.

And just like that, I’ve been pushed out of a conversation again. I don’t understand why that always happens when somebody’s heard of me. Which is to say, I understand perfectly, but feel like they should be more respectful of a personality as opulent and suave as I, Rickard Trassel. But, oh well. I take the opportunity to extricate myself from the conversation area, leaning against a wall with wine glass in hand, and simply allowing my confidence of self to exude into the room. Maybe that’ll gather people to me who aren’t utterly incompetent or totally useless, though given what I’ve seen from everyone in the room so far…

The expression on his face says he recognises me. I smile and chuckle under my breath at his words, responding coolly with ‘If he is, he’s certainly the most well-read of their race I’ve ever met. Really, though, I couldn’t say who here aside from ourselves has any sort of privilege, though I fear you may be right about their nature.’ I continue in a lowered voice: ‘After all, I hardly expect a blind woman and a man without an arm, amongst others, to be of any use to a task that, so I’ve heard, could stand a threat even to I, Rickard Trassel.’ In reality, I feel as though I could have done this job myself regardless of supposed threat level; none of these people need to be here, they can go home now, so long, see you, I’ll be back in a couple of days with the plunder. Heh. Fools.

The girl was unresponsive. Self-righteous bitch. She deserves whatever beatings she gets, and I was damn tempted to strike her myself for the impoliteness. In any case, I find that, over time, I am further surrounded by more and more people, up to and including a negro, an apparently blind lady, and one Prince Richard II. Well, I’m not one to associate with any but the best… most of the time… so I head over to the prince in question, greeting him with a polite bow and the words ‘Greetings, and what a fine day for a gathering, is it not, your highness?’ Got to be polite around these royal types, else they’ll tear your head off, metaphorically speaking.

Not the best start for this mission or quest or whatever it is, I imagine. That said, maybe I can find some entertainment out of today.

I was actually going to say something regarding how eager I was for a challenge, but apparently the arrogant bitch is very sure that I’m likely to die. The alternatives, apparently, are a lot of lost money or “prison”. Like she could get me, of all people, imprisoned. Her and what organisation? The SpeedyWagon Foundation? Please. And I’d probably thrive in prison, actually. Make everyone in there learn who’s boss, and so on and so forth. Still, as I said before, I like the idea of facing a challenge for once. Ever since I put on that mask, I’ve experienced nothing of the sort – I could buy just about whatever I wanted and was legally and financially untouchable even before putting on the mask, and now I’m pretty much immune to magic and physical weaponry on top of that. Long story short, I’ve gotten bored of my lifestyle of pederasty and murder, amongst other things. So, I’ll accept the ma’am’s challenge, and head over to The Royal Belmont for June 20th. We’ll see what she thinks is so tough as to be a threat to my immortality…
