Everyone is wrong again, unfortunately. No, I am not aphoticruby, rocketman1555. And none of the protected ones were in my sights this time either.
The person who did die today was zorbak5044. (FYI a Zorbak is a bluish creature from Adventure Quest who is rather resistant to Darkness based attacks, hence my hints). He was crossing the road as I approached him from the behind, to strike him dead using my metal crutch. Unfortunately, due to my recent loss of hearing, I did not hear an out-of-control bus heading my way. Alerted by my battle cry, zorbak5044 turned to see both me and the oncoming bus. Heroically, he jumped at me, tacking me away from the wheeled menace, but unfortunately ending up wrapped around the wheels of the people mover in the process. Broke my leg too, the butterfly.
Well, this last person had 2 stars under his name. My next victim has far more stars than that. Not quite as many as the oft-absent Matthew, but certainly more than DarkSabre. Perhaps if you add half of one to the double of the other you might arrive at the number. His nick has the word 'man' in it, which I find really annoying... so many people like that on these forums. He is rather nice though.
Oh, and one of the above hints is a made-up one (that is false)... a Venn diagram puzzle for you! I am green with anticipation!
