So, trolled the Witch a little more. Because why not? She is already pissed off beyond belief from what I can tell, so it's not like this will actually HURT. In fact.... it may just help. HehhehhehhehMUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA! :twisted:

So, guys, while I was gone it looks like I got an answer, and it looks like someone is claiming responsibility for my cold. Meta says that it is most likely the GMs just rolling with the timing coincidence, but there are two things about that that are making me doubtful. See, first, the GMs actually can find me if they want to. During the first stages of the game, without thinking, I sent out an e-mail related to the plot from an account that I had been using previously for some other, more serious matters. It was only one e-mail before I realized that a part of my true name was attached to said message and edited the personal information on the account. However, said "one e-mail" just so happened to be my application to the Witch right after her ad was found.

Then the second thing, which is by far the weirdest. Good news and bad news. First the good news: I got a few hours of sleep last night, and now I feel much better, though the strange taste is still there. Bad news: I got a few hours of sleep last night and now I feel much better, though the strange taste is still there. This means that most of my condition was me being sleep deprived. I'm not even sure I was sick in the first place, because honestly I've never heard of a cold that only has the single symptom: everything tastes like horrible, horrible banana and something else jello. So.... yeah. That is a thing and I do not like where it is leading. Just in case, please excuse me while I turn my just-for-fun!traps into actual death!traps...

XD Actually just playing a role alongside Gms isn't enough to make you a puppetmaster but what the hell this is Sicon and HE SHOULD BE.

Well, an explanation of what just happened is in order.

Roughly an hour ago I was sitting down for that audio log, just in case, since I couldn't get my hands on a camera in time. Well, at that point, it seems the Witch SOMEHOW got into the first floor of my house. She bypassed the front door lock AND the trap attached, so before she could get any further I triggered the recorder in a side room to play what sounded like me trying to hide. She fell for it easily, seeing as my post here seemed to be afraid of her. The moment she turned into the hallway, a bucket of flour fell on her head, disorienting and blinding her as she stumbled into the room, the door of which was ajar. My bokken was made into a sort of pendulum and swung down to hit her in the head when she triggered it by the opening door. That knocked her sideways into a bit of netting between the posts of an old bedframe I dragged up from the basement. The posts detached from the frame and tied up in the netting as it collapsed inward under her weight. In order to ATTEMPT to stop her magicing her way out, I had tangled a bunch of spare wiring in the net and hooked it up to a socket that activated with the light switch. I ran in and got ready to flip the switch if I had to, and also got my water gun on the way, but she was faster than expected and hurled all of the trap parts across the room, then disarmed me before I could move to fire.

Realizing I was in trouble, I managed to backpedal and maneuver her towards the base of the stairs. To her, it looked as though I was stumbling backwards and then landing on the steps, but while I fell I managed to get a string tied to the banister under my hand. That was my makeshift deadman's switch. The string was the same color as the paint, and was carefully wrapped around the banister and stapled to the wallpaper so as to keep it out of sight. It attached to a bucket on a hook right above an overhang in the stairwell, and on the other side of the bucket was a counterweight. The moment I let go of the string, by design or by force, the bucket flips over and dumps water on the base of the stairs. After a few tests, I determined that this was my fastest trap, with a total runtime of .67 seconds till I estimated the water would dissolve the Witch's skull and hit her brain. However,a s her previous speed showed, that wasn't fast enough. I doubt if I had triggered it she would have escaped, but then, I don't think I would have either.

Well,t hat was the point Poirot made his timely arrival, and was then promptly turned into a croissant for his trouble. A croissant with a mustache. Look, my life stopped making sense about the time Mimsy starts going mad, OK? I was GONNA get the Witch when she turned to curse him, but she kept her eyes on me almost the whole time. She had to have know I had SOMETHING in reserve, or at least suspected. She came close to attacking me there, and I was about to have to try and convince her of her impossible situation. Namely, if she attacked me, no one would help her and she would be trapped here, either to be killed by Cthulhu or have her magic sealed off once more. However, Poirot came up with a different plan, and I just rolled with that instead.

After that, there isn't much left to tell... Now please let me go get this backdoor trap deactivated, it involves a rather nasty solution made from toilet bowl cleaner that could probably melt human skin, so.... I REALLY need to get it down before someone trips it.

I would tip my hat to you, if I had one, but I don't believe there is an appropriate hat for you right now.

Is there a hat perchance, made of pure, concentrated badass?

Well, it was a solution of the acids used in the cleaning solvent, except I managed to get rid of a significant amount of the water involved. So, highly concentrated dosage of acid, plus enough water content to probably melt her skin delivering the acid direct to her muscle structure.

There should be no download. It opens direct to windows media player for me. Could someone stick it in a google doc?

I can't understand exactly what's going on, the audio doesn't play so well. The audio Sicon posted, anyways.

But what and how exactly you did that recording Sicon? I'm astonished, even more because you're not a GM. Or are you?

If someone can make a transcript of that, that would be good... because I can't translate what Poirot said to ask me to translate without seeing it written. It's hard to make out non-Quebec accents when they're speaking as fast as he is.

No other comment atm.

So I guess people don't need the Google Docs link any more. Still, I hadn't seen the newer posts before now so I went ahead and did my thing anyway:

Same audio, so if you already got it from Sendspace there's not going to be any difference here.
