    The Queen's absence is noted. You've been told that she is in mourning, but what is she really doing up in that tower? As you walk through the palace, conferring with others about court proceedings, you make a detour to see the entrance to her tower. Unsurprisingly, the way to the staircase has been barred. It is heavily guarded by cloaked figures bearing the insignia of royal family. You fade back into the shadows for now.

    At the end of the day, one of the guards enters the audience chamber bearing a sealed envelope bearing the Queen's declaration. How was she getting this information?

    First, the Queen's Hand:

      Spoiler:  


    Harlow of House Winter, you have been named the Queen's Hand!

    Harlow kept the crest. With this insignia, she retains access to the Vault for the round.

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Victim and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Suspect and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Traitor and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    The Queen's Hand will now visit the Vault. She has up to 24 Hours to complete this task.

    I will also send everyone a courtesy update of their current inventory.

    Round 3 will begin with the Procession.

    The fourteen remaining players approach the castle gates. Players with at least one Dagger will pass the guards and enter the royal court. Players with no Daggers remaining will fail to advance past this checkpoint, resulting in their elimination from the game.

    The Queen has issued a new Royal Proclamation for you all.

    Quote Originally Posted by Queen's Proclamation #4

    Gameplay Implications:

    Requirement: During Round 3, only Loyalty Rankings submitted at a time ending in the number 7 (for example: 10:47 PM, 3:07 AM) will be accepted as valid. This is due by the deadline for Loyalty Ranking #1.

    Penalty: Players who fail to meet this criteria will be ineligible to become the Queen's Hand this round. Additionally, players who submit at invalid times, submit an otherwise invalid list, or fail to submit anything will receive a 20-point penalty on their weekly ranking.

    Welcome to Round 3's Loyalty Ranking.

    There are fourteen players remaining in the game. The current round's multiplier is 1.96. Therefore, your individual ranking will distribute Disloyalty Points as follows:

      Spoiler:  
    1 0.00
    2 3.27
    3 6.53
    4 9.80
    5 13.07
    6 16.33
    7 19.60
    8 22.87
    9 26.13
    10 29.40
    11 32.67
    12 35.93
    13 39.20


    You are required to rank your fellow players from 1 to 13. You have 24 Hours to complete this. As this is the first round, you must submit a ranking in order to remain in the game. In future rounds, failure to submit will result in your previous ranking repeating (with any eliminated players omitted, naturally). In order to retain a clean slate with another player to be eligible for the Unbreakable win condition, you must rank each other first for the duration of the game. Is it worth it?

    Your distribution of Disloyalty Points will determine four roles in this order:

    • The Queen's Hand: The player with the best ranking in the current round will be publicly revealed. This player will visit the Vault and experience a net gain of one Dagger.
    • The Victim: The player with the worst ranking in the current round will have their lowest ranked Dagger confiscated, revealed, and placed in the Vault. Thus, this player experiences a net loss of one Dagger.
    • The Suspect: Excluding the previous two players, the player who has cast the most Disloyalty Points against the Victim, cumulatively across all rounds, will have their lowest ranked Dagger confiscated, revealed, and placed in the Vault. Thus, this player experiences a net loss of one Dagger.
    • The Traitor: Excluding the previous three players, the player with the greatest Loyalty Debt against the Victim, cumulatively across all rounds, will have their lowest ranked Dagger confiscated, revealed, and placed in the Vault. Thus, this player experiences a net loss of one Dagger.


    For more information about these roles, as well as tiebreaker procedures, please consult the first post of the game. As you can see, while there is a great benefit to being ranked first each round, ranking well without coming in first may actually hurt you in the game. Your goal should be to get your targets ranked last without having to rank them low yourself... which creates all kinds of organizational nightmares, doesn't it? Well, I'm sure you will figure something out.

    Other potential actions that could take place:

    • Inventory Request: Upon request, I will tell you your current Dagger Order via Private Message.
    • Reorder: If you have Daggers with different names inscribed on them, you may voluntarily switch the order of those Daggers.
    • Transfer: Transfer a Dagger to another player currently in the game. To do so, send me (Estquer) a private message entitled "Dagger Transfer" specifying which dagger(s) you are giving to which player(s). These transfers are considered final and cannot be reversed. You may attempt to set up Dagger trades with fellow players, but you will not be able to enforce the conditions of the agreement; you will have to establish trust and hope that your competitor gives you the dagger(s) or favor(s) promised in return. Note: You may not give away your final dagger. Thus, you must have at least two Daggers in your inventory to perform a transfer.
    • Anonymity: If specified, you may choose to give a Dagger anonymously; otherwise, I will tell the recipient which player gave them the Dagger.

    Despite Queen Hildegarde's warning, member after member of the royal court refuses to acknowledge the deaths of her family members. As they file past, without paying their respects, her eyes flashed with fury. Her voice quivered as she denounced each and every one.

    Gameplay Implication: Each of these players received a penalty of +20 Disloyalty Points toward becoming this round's victim, and were disqualified from becoming this round's Queen's Hand.
    You can't remember ever seeing the Queen this angry before; nor did you ever expect to see so many faces posted on the Board of Contempt. Her grief, and the arbitrary proclamations she has been making lately, are starting to get on your nerves. You itch to do something, but time seems to have trickled to a halt. Daggers are being confiscated, and yet, no one has been ousted from court.

    Perhaps that will change soon.

    At the end of the day, with cold indifference, the Queen summoned everyone back to her audience chamber. It was time to see what had transpired.

    First, the Queen's Hand:

      Spoiler:  


    Mortimer of House Sykes, you have been named the Queen's Hand!

    Harlow, with some resignation, handed over the pendant that should have been hers once again. Queen Hildegarde here instructed one of the guards to pin a small crest, imbued with sapphires, to Mortimer's cloak. With this insignia, he gained access to the Vault for the round.

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Victim and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Suspect and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Traitor and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    The Queen's Hand will now visit the Vault. He has up to 24 Hours to complete this task.

    You had all fallen into a routine. There were definitely winners and losers in court, but with no one yet removed from the Queen's presence, the stakes didn't feel as real yet. Despite this feeling, the Vault is certainly filling up with daggers. It was only a matter of time before Palace Intrigue caught up to people. As for the Queen? She was present in court today, but she seemed distracted. Of course, there are plenty of reasons why she should be distracted, but you have not seen her take any concrete steps toward actually finding the perpetrators of the attack on Lachrymont. What is she hiding? You're sure she knows something, but you can't fathom what.

    The Queen called you all to her audience chamber for the fourth day, to make some important announcements.

    First, the Queen's Hand:

      Spoiler:  


    October of House James, you have been named the Queen's Hand!

    October gladly accepts the Royal Crest from Mortimer. With this insignia, she gains access to the Vault for the round.

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Victim and placed in the Vault:

    There is a sudden scuffle as Champagne demands entrance. There is a bit of chaos as the cloaked court members scatter away from the procession, seeing the guards refuse her entry. Try as she might, she cannot convince the guards to let her in.

    "But I'm not done yet!" she screams. "I can get another dagger, just give me more time!"

    Her protests are met with stony silence. In tears, she turns on the other court members.

    "Why did you let this happen? I thought you were my friends!"

    No one says anything. Avoiding Champagne as though she were a leper, the remaining members of the court quickly shuffle in through the checkpoint. It's impossible to say whether the rain alone, or tears, marred her face. She would have to find some other hope in this grim land, for the Palace offered none.

    OOC: Thanks so much for playing, yzzy! Due to the indirect method of eliminations in this game, I was hoping you would be able to find a good position. Unfortunately, it seems you were not able to balance your lists well and suffered as a result. Thanks so much for playing!

    The guards block Michelangelo's progress toward the Royal Court. You expected him to put up some kind of resistance, but he just stared blankly at the guards, as if seeing something beyond them, and turned back. You tried calling after him but he didn't say anything at all. After a minute, you could see him as a black spot in the distance, a solitary cloaked figure plodding down the great stone stairs leading up to the castle. Without further fanfare, he was gone.

    OOC: Brendan, I wish you had stuck around and played! I think you could have gone far if you tried in this.

    Apologies for the delay! I've been swamped with work and then had an internet outage. Results will be up shortly.

    The Queen called you all to her audience chamber for the sixth day, to make some important announcements.

    First, the Queen's Hand:

      Spoiler:  


    Tandy of House Bowen, you have been named the Queen's Hand!

    Tandy's eyes widen in surprise. October hands over the Royal Crest. With this insignia, she retains access to the Vault for the round.

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Victim and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Suspect and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Traitor and placed in the Vault:

      Spoiler:  

    The Queen's Hand will now visit the Vault. She has up to 24 Hours to complete this task.

    I will send out a courtesy Dagger Inventory shortly.

    Round 7 will begin with the Procession.

    The twelve remaining players approach the castle gates. Players with at least one Dagger will pass the guards and enter the royal court. Players with no Daggers remaining will fail to advance past this checkpoint, resulting in their elimination from the game.

    Welcome to Round 7's Loyalty Ranking.

    There are twelve players remaining in the game. The current round's multiplier is 7.53. Therefore, your individual ranking will distribute Disloyalty Points as follows:

      Spoiler:  
    1 0
    2 15.06
    3 30.12
    4 45.18
    5 60.24
    6 75.3
    7 90.35
    8 105.41
    9 120.47
    10 135.53
    11 150.59


    You are required to rank your fellow players from 1 to 11. You have 24 Hours to complete this. Failure to submit will result in your previous ranking repeating (with any eliminated players omitted, naturally). In order to retain a clean slate with another player to be eligible for the Unbreakable win condition, you must rank each other first for the duration of the game. Is it worth it?

    Your distribution of Disloyalty Points will determine four roles in this order:

    • The Queen's Hand: The player with the best ranking in the current round will be publicly revealed. This player will visit the Vault and experience a net gain of one Dagger.
    • The Victim: The player with the worst ranking in the current round will have their lowest ranked Dagger confiscated, revealed, and placed in the Vault. Thus, this player experiences a net loss of one Dagger.
    • The Suspect: Excluding the previous two players, the player who has cast the most Disloyalty Points against the Victim, cumulatively across all rounds, will have their lowest ranked Dagger confiscated, revealed, and placed in the Vault. Thus, this player experiences a net loss of one Dagger.
    • The Traitor: Excluding the previous three players, the player with the greatest Loyalty Debt against the Victim, cumulatively across all rounds, will have their lowest ranked Dagger confiscated, revealed, and placed in the Vault. Thus, this player experiences a net loss of one Dagger.


    For more information about these roles, as well as tiebreaker procedures, please consult the first post of the game. As you can see, while there is a great benefit to being ranked first each round, ranking well without coming in first may actually hurt you in the game. Your goal should be to get your targets ranked last without having to rank them low yourself... which creates all kinds of organizational nightmares, doesn't it? Well, I'm sure you will figure something out.

    Other potential actions that could take place:

    • Inventory Request: Upon request, I will tell you your current Dagger Order via Private Message.
    • Reorder: If you have Daggers with different names inscribed on them, you may voluntarily switch the order of those Daggers.
    • Transfer: Transfer a Dagger to another player currently in the game. To do so, send me (Estquer) a private message entitled "Dagger Transfer" specifying which dagger(s) you are giving to which player(s). These transfers are considered final and cannot be reversed. You may attempt to set up Dagger trades with fellow players, but you will not be able to enforce the conditions of the agreement; you will have to establish trust and hope that your competitor gives you the dagger(s) or favor(s) promised in return. Note: You may not give away your final dagger. Thus, you must have at least two Daggers in your inventory to perform a transfer.
    • Anonymity: If specified, you may choose to give a Dagger anonymously; otherwise, I will tell the recipient which player gave them the Dagger.

    The Queen called you all to her audience chamber for the eighth day, to make some important announcements.

    First, the Queen's Hand:

      Spoiler:  


    Mortimer of House Sykes, you have been named the Queen's Hand!

    With some regret, Tandy hands over the royal insignia to Mortimer. Mortimer feels relieved to once again have this crucial power. With this insignia, he regains access to the Vault for the round.

    A dagger has been confiscated from the Victim and placed in the Vault:
