Officers:

King (jaggie34)
Knight (DatSciolyBoi)
Rook (lindsmaurer)
Bishop (TheChiScientist)
Queen (Here)
Everyone else is hereby a pawn.

Without further ado, I present your first clue:
iN a GAme of chesS

BeGin

...With the move of a piece. I made my move, and you made yours. And already one of your pieces in in danger. What a rookie mistake.
Let me run and grab some bacon though. Go ahead and make your move, I’m just hungry.
Actually, I’d prefer some steak. Don’t get angry though, I’ll make my move soon...

...in 48 hours. tick tock.
Usually, people start with the pawn in front of the King. Two spots forward. And the opponent usually matches that. What I usually do then would be to push out my bishop, which would immediately endanger the King. I protect jaggie34 for the above reason.

The baconian cipher is rather obscure for anyone not in codebusters, right? So we should probably keep an eye out for suspicious behavior from someone in codebusters. I think that's the main ID clue we have so far...

It just occurred to me that this could be roughly Through the Looking Glass-style, and that the sassy is playing a chess game out, or at least enough that we know the rough board. I wonder if the sassy's sig is a clue relating to what will happen.

Just do the iron D strat where you alternate moving your pawns 1 and 2 spaces forward. Works 100% of the times that it works.

Any idea as to what the part about steak means, or is that filler to go along with the bacon part for baconian?

His sig says he's castling on the 5th move, so he's gonna do something on the 5th hint?

In chess, good players would make it seem like they're going for one piece but then kill another. MadCow seems to be the most likely target, but we should keep searching for others. Just in case.

sassy says "steak" and "angry" which, as someone who's been vaguely lurking on the forums for a few months, I think furthers the evidence for MadCow, who's currently being protected, correct? unless there are other angry moo-moos around, MadCow is probably the best bet as a target.

unless sassy has many brain cells (more than I do!) and, like is being suggested, is leading us on. which would be rather clever.
