I suppose it would be worth be worthless to try and convince you that I'm not the assassinator. Go ahead and accuse me, I guess. I actually wanted to do it this round; I asked Alpha if she would pick me but she had already sent off the PM. I wouldn't have told anyone about this (as to try for the next round) but I didn't expect this game to last so long.

That said, my top suspect would be Z. I also have a suspicion that Alpha picked herself; it seems like she could pull off the writing bits and many of the ID clues relate to space. Might be worth an accusation before the next kill.

Edit: Yeah, I eat at weird times.

Guys... I'm not dumb enough to target myself when I'm not an officer. Too risky. How many times do I have to tell you that?

eh, I've also been suspecting Alpha of choosing herself, plus her username is the only one that really has anything to do with space, so unless any other officers object I'll accuse her tonight

Might as well burn through the accusations while we have them

In addition, the fact that Alpha was at camp fits very well with the sassy's complaints at his/her lack of time to write clues.

Haha, not me, guys. Don't waste your last accusations. My one attempt at being assasstornado (to quote gh :P) was mediocre at best - I'm nowhere as good as this sassy. I also tended to use more ciphers and puzzles than, *shudder*, word clues.

Luo, I've actually had a lot of free time for the past month at camp, most of which was occupied by my constant lurking on chat with you guys.

I can't stop you from accusing me, but I'm just gonna say that it's a bad idea to waste accusations at this stage.

Targeting yourself as Assassinator is easy. Since you ultimately have the power to decide when the kill happens. You just make a clue that people can solve, and if they are dumb and don't solve it on their own, you solve it for them, then someone else protects you. The clue that targeted z was pretty easy, and z did try to justify the Assassinator's actions when he/she counted the 2nd accusation of FullMetalMaple. However, none of this is really conclusive in the least.

It could also very well be AlphaTauri, the Assassinator supposedly talked with Alpha about what should be done about counting the 2nd FullMetalMaple accusation, which is kind of an odd thing to do. If it were me, I would have devised a compromise on my own (or not compromised at all!). But if you were going to consult someone about this, I suppose it would make sense to consult Alpha to preserve your identity. But would an experienced Assassinator consult anyone? Maybe I am just overly authoritative...

I don't really see conclusive evidence to point to either Alpha or z, though they both seem like smarter choices than amerikestral. It seems like this Assassinator frequents/ has frequented chat. That being said, I'm still pretty sure it is Luo (please don't accuse him again!)...
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Well I have to go to sleep now
So here goes
I accuse AlphaTauri for all the mentioned suspicions, and I protect myself so I don't die
And if I'm wrong about Alpha I'll most likely use my last accusation tomorrow morning and end the game, unless someone beats me to it

Aren't you going to protect somebody?
Edit: Never mind, I guess you did.
