I knew amerikestral resigning would cause problems. I considered ignoring the post for a few days until he was dead, then he would no longer need a replacement. However, I felt this course of action would be rather cold-hearted. Consequently, I offered lllazar the job because he seemed to want it. So, now let us examine the chain of events. I crafted the clue with the intent to kill an officer. amerikestral likely would not have been protected had he stayed the officer; you all were way out in left field the whole time. In this scenario, I would have eliminated 3 potential accusations and an indeterminable number of protects. In many ways I would be robbed of my hard work if lllazar was given all of these privileges. However, we must face the reality that due to circumstances uncontrollable to any of us (unless amerikestral is reading this) amerikestral felt inclined to relinquish his position. So, I propose a beneficent compromise between what should have happened and what actually happened. lllazar will remain a normal officer, but will lose 1 accusation, leaving him with 2 more to use at his leisure. From my perspective, this is a very generous offer.

Hmmm... That must be frustrating from your point of view. I see no problem in it, but its not really my call.

Anyhow, I protect ichalem for reasons above.

I think it's about time for a self clue.

I will try to get an identity clue out in the next couple days. I am still pondering how best to do it.

ichaelm was my target. Hewever, in the future robodude should try to correctly spell his protects. I'm ramping the difficulty level up for this next one. Can you keep up?

1. Don't know.
2. Pluto.
3. According to ichaelm, it should be Python, not Delphi.
4. Path? Line?
5. Don't know.
6. Don't know.
7. Equus.
8. Fusion.
9. Don't know.
10. Ziggurat.
11. Catalyst?
12. Stagflation?
13. SeigeLord.
14. Texas (and Wyoming, but that wouldn't fit).
15. Raptor Jesus.
16. Tapetum lucidum.
17. Gravity?
18. Amplifier?

I'll keep changing the list as I Google the various terms and phrases.

Edit: Hey, zz, the last two letters should be "AP", not "II". I think you shifted the blocks up a bit.

2: Pluto, as the frisbee was origionally called the Pluto Platter.
15: Raptor Jesus.
4: Path(didn't know it had a name!)
13: I would hazard a guess with Dark Sabre.
1: I'm still searching for this, but i have a hunch it has to do with martian geography(Herschel crater on Mars), and not the crater on Mimas.
