"Unlike your past accusation, this one does seem quite plausible. Does anyone else have anything to say about it, like you, Signorina?"

“No, no� replied the Italian lady, “I cannot. How about you Herr Weiss?�

“I suggested it was him at the beginning if you remember�, replied the manservant smugly. “No I can’t prove you wrong Sir.�

'I told you you were all too focused on me,' said Mr. Vermillion. 'I cannot find any rebuttal for this.'

"I have nothing to say on this," said Mr. Nogoon.

Sir Shamrock leaped in the air, "Perhaps I can shed some light on the situation!"

After thinking for some time, Miss Julep spoke again.

"Lieutenant Flax, you seem awful quiet. Maybe you killed Mr. Boddy. Perhaps you shot him with the Luger you so conveniently lost? And yes, we might not have heard a gunshot, but you still could have done it! Maybe you used a pillow in the Tennessee Room and used it to muffle out the sound..."

Miss Julep suggests it was Lieutenant Flax with the Luger Pistol in the Tennessee Room.

"No, no, no, that cannot be true", said Herr Weiss.

I can disprove.

"But seeing as you are so quick to point the finger," the elderly man continued, "How about you being the killer? Perhaps you cracked a lamp over his head in the observatory?"

I suggest Miss Julep with the Stained Glass Lamp in the Observatory - cue BBP to disprove.

"I can't see anything in my notes to disprove that," said Mr Vermillion, all too eager to help now that the attention on him has been diverted. "Although I do have my doubts about its veracity."

Princess Blueblood stands still, calm and composed, all the while locking eyes with Lieutenant Flax.

"I know Lieutenant Flax better than anyone here." Princess Blueblood addresses everyone with confidence.

"Is she capable of murder?" Mr. Mossman asks.

Princess Blueblood can't find the words to speak. She turns her back and faces the window, looking out over the snowy landscape.

"Princess," Mr. Mossman tries a calmer approach, "Can you vouch for Lieutenant Flax's whereabouts at the time of the murder?"

Princess Blueblood closes her eyes, blocking out the accusations and remarks around her.

Mr. Mossman turns to Great Aunt Smoke, Dr. Yukon, and Mr. Vermillion with a long, exhausted sigh.

"I don't know what to do..." Mr. Mossman pushes past them and sits down.

[Hold it, folks. Individuals along the line can indeed disprove who have stated they cannot. It's partly my fault, as I haven't been able to check in the past two days or so. I think it resulted from some confusion from individuals responding to the suggestion prior to Jamie's. It is imperative to read the entire reply preceding yours.

I am going to message the parties involved, but please do not disprove further for the moment. What do you think the best way to handle this is? It has left some players at a disadvantage, as they have had to reveal things they wouldn't have.

Would you prefer I PM you secret cards? The other option is making some sort of public revelation of an array of cards or just revealing who is holding the card/s in question that should have been shown regarding this suggestion. Please feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the interest of fair play.]

I'm not sure if I fully understand what you just wrote, but if you mean people say they can't disprove while they should be able to... in the board game such a move is punished by chucking a person who does that out of the game. 'Course it could be an honest mistake - I'm not even sure about all the cards in my hand.

We could also copy the suggestion in our posts disproving, which means we can all prove we're talking about the cards in the suggestion...

Personally, I think:-

You state who was wrong to say they couldn't disprove.
You show everyone the card that should have been shown in the suggestion.
I think that way, the only player disadvantaged is the one that should have shown a card?

I think we'll try to avoid chucking anybody for the moment because I'm sure it was an honest mistake in keeping track of cards and suggestions.

That said, my concern stems from people now knowing certain players don't have certain cards, which helps with notepads. I'm leaning toward Jamie's suggestion of publicly revealing the card/s in question and indicating who has them. However, I will allow the others to chime in as well with their thoughts.

I don't get entirely why Cacums was talking about Lieutenant Flax...


Ed: good idea to reveal the card in question...

I'd say publically reveal. Possibly it means some info is now in error for those of us taking detailed notes.

Lieutenant Flax had lowered herself into one of the table's broad dining chairs, hands pressed flat on the wooden surface, face contorted in deep thought, as she seemed to consider the events unfolding before her. With a single fluid motion, she abruptly rose to her feet, extending an accusatory finger to the suspects gathered there.

"What is the expression that lawmen so often use? Objection! There is a liar among us," she said firmly, voice powering over the chatter still going on. However, as if on cue, a harpoon dislodged itself from a hidden space in the ceiling overhead and pierced the cushion on which she had been sitting just a moments before. A trap? A deliberate attempt on another life?

The woman cried out and reared back. And as she stepped away to regain her bearings, one could see her face blanch despite her efforts to retain her hardened exterior. Extending her hands outward, Flax nevertheless motioned for the others to be quiet, as if expecting a barrage of projectiles from above. None came. The moments passed in quiet succession before she let out a small huff, air blowing through her nostrils.

"It seems someone here would have me silenced," she continued darkly. "Perhaps it was you then, Doctor Yuck Man? I know you were...slinking, snooping, even slithering around the observatory earlier this evening? Why then do you not admit it to us? You surely would have seen our minty friend, yes?"

She narrowed her eyes. "My point is, nothing could have occurred as we are currently suggesting. One's made-up stories to law enforcement must tie up loose ends. That is the saying?"


[TheButlerButInnocent can disprove Jamie's suggestion of Miss Julep with the Stained Glass Lamp in the Observatory using the Observatory card.

That said, everyone, some other folks in this line may or may not have been confused with the suggestion they were responding to. Beyond the information and specific card revealed here, I suggest you to take this line of disproving with a grain of salt when marking up your notebooks.

Cue BBP to suggest.]
