Welcome to Camelot Lords and Ladies!



THE MISTS OF AVALON

Round 4: Drink from the Holy Grail and regain a New Life! The Holy Grail appears in both rooms. People in the room may drink from the Holy Grail (Starting with the Leader of the room). Post "I DRINK FROM THE HOLY GRAIL". People may also decline to drink from the holy grail by saying "I DECLINE THE HOLY GRAIL". The Grail is passed around the room to all (One does not need to say "I pass the Grail to X Person" - One simply says after the leader has or has not drunk "I DRINK FROM THE HOLY GRAIL" to activate it.). The person who is worthy (randomly selected ahead of time) that drinks from the Grail at the appropriate time MUST change cards for a buried card of the same allegiance/color. If they are worthy, their change will remain hidden knowledge. Only ONE worthy person per room.

People must either drink once or decline once. Once they decide this, there is no going back.

Does NOT work on King/Dragon/Lady/Yellow Assassin (However they are welcome to "Drink" from the Grail - though it has no effect). Does not cleanse prior conditions (If they were Yellow or Foolish for example, they are still Yellow and Foolish).

Well guys, I gave it my best shot.

I am firmly of the belief that we should send Chris over there this round and have her public reveal as the King to create as much drama as possible. If we just keep her here, we 100% lose as they will split up Assassin and Bomber.

Send Borgoto back with her for ultimate drama.

You fools, the Grail was never meant to return to mortal hands. None are worthy of possessing such an item. But now you've set things in motion which cannot be undun...

Go ahead and drink, you greedy and wanton mortals. Continue to intervene in divine and fae matters that you have no right to ever see. It shall only further doom your souls to damnation. None of you is worthy.



And this pathetic aging kingdom of yours will crumble, fall, and fade away and with it, all traces of the magic to which you have stolen access. But your ruin, your punishment, that will be eternal.

The honey badger is really pretty badass. It has no regard for any other animal whatsoever. Look at him, he's just grunting, and eating snakes. Eew! What's that? A mouse? Oh that's nasty.

But look! The honey badger doesn't care! It's getting stung like a thousand times. It doesn't give a $#%^. It's just hungry. It doesn't care about being stung by bees. Nothing can stop the honey badger when it's hungry. What a crazy @&#%!

Hello!

I believe the right play is to send me with the king if blue wants a chance at winning.

People here are probably not all aware of the amount of action that went down in the other room.

Right now if nothing happens, blue has no chance to win and Yellow have most likely the win. I think I have convinced everyone but Bluetorch of my plan to become leader and have an impartial coinflip between red and blue instead of having blind faith into rochelle and Slathe. I believe had I stayed there that people would have voted me into power in this round. I think Yellow should have waited for R4 to send me away but it wont matter much.

It could be that people stopped caring and are inactive and that would be understandable too but the plan can work.

The king has to be there because if it really will be a coinflip and my neutral view will not matter.

And heh.

You do not have a place to say such things now, Lady of the Lake. You should never have given Arthur Excalibur, then a world where ALL these wanton mortals burn could have existed. You seek to become the kingmaker that I warned you would be. You ignored Oberon's decree that the fae should not interfere with mortal affairs.

I may be stuck as an on-looker watching fate unfold from a distance, but I will pause to speak for those in Avalon:

Why is it so awful for the Fisher King to win versus Arthur to win? How is that supposedly anymore appealing to me?

You want to flip a coin? Weren't Arthur's knights and Caitlin last round yelling "where did you get the coin from?!" ?

I much prefer a world where the Fisher King can decide to be random or just take the win than a world where Arthur and his heinous drones have any decent chance of surviving.

Of my goals of making Arthur and Merlin suffer and die and of taking over Camelot, the chances of fate are undeniably more favourable for me without a change of leadership in Avalon. As it stands I am guaranteed one of my two desires -- and the more satisfying one, no less.

This is a war. And I would rather watch it all burn than see Camelot still standing in Arthur's hands.

If you keep king here, you offer them a real coinflip between the fisher King and the dragon.

If you send me and king, you make them think and maybe accept my offer which is equal or strictly better to yellow's offer. They may refuse out of loyalty but it's blues only shot I feel.

Blue had 2 problems this game.

1- Perfect information. Seems like everyone knows who every VIP is.. I don't know what happened round 1 but that was surprising.

2- Yellow assassin favors red over blue in a significative way. I think this is ok as it only means blue victory is more glorious in this situation

As soon as red and yellow cooperate with the assassin, blue is 100% screwed. I dont know if anyone can find another plan but sending me and King may give you a better than 0% win. And reds here should agree too as it only gives them better odds. I dont even know who is in charge.

I know i'm not making any sense at this point, let's sleep
