For sure, I knew I was going to die tomorrow and definitely well done for everyone on working that one out, I was just looking forward to having another night and day to see if I could do something. It was definitely an interesting game - especially when we had to all speak in poetry - so I would definitely support more interesting formats like this despite being the person who lost out from it this time

To be clearer - I had considered myself safe due to guys spell, so got a little careless with checking. That the format was used to kill me despite this is a little disappointing personally, but also keeping everyone on their toes and keeping the game interesting is definitely he mark of a good format, so props for that :)

I didn't realise we could knock out mendax until Nem revealed the "purpose" of the lesson. Everyone else checked in during the day and you had plenty of time to reply. We would have definitely got you tomorrow, but Guy might have shot the moon.

Nope! Nothing of substance at all.

And the immuno spell was total bullshittery

The key turning point for us was missing on Cenedra I think in retrospect. If we had hit with both kills day 1 we would have been in a much stronger position, especially breaking the position of trust that existed between them both. Obviously having mendax and I both unable to cast spells pretty much meant the writing was on the wall.

Well played though guys, your blocking and protection shouts were bang on almost every night!

You tried to curse me but you missed? Is that why I was silenced?

They tried to kill you twice, actually. The set-up gave the Slytherins a bunch of one shot spells in addition to their nightly curse, and one of those one shots was another curse (so once per game they could hit two people in a night).

On night 1, they decided to curse both you and Shanodin. Unfortunately for them, Lord R (who had a nightly Confundus charm, which caused spells to randomly redirect) hit Mendax, and the curse directed at you bounced on to Shanodin instead (hence why she was double hexed in the flavour).

They tried to get you on other nights as well, but Spring was constantly on point with his disarming charms (definitely my wizard of the match, for what it's worth) and it never stuck.

Thank you then Harry!!! I guess Fred wasn't fated to die in this story :D

Seriously though Spring, after your very risky day one play, you definitely lived up to your role- well played 8-)

Also, being able to prove Joey had been telling the truth was very, very useful.

It was a really awkward role to draw, because you don't want to claim it. Sorry (not sorry) for being suspicious :P
