Welcome to Literature Mafia!

I hope that this is a fun, balanced game, and that everyone enjoys playing! Good luck!

RULES

1. You must bold votes. You must unvote prior to re-voting. You can vote until I close the DP, but once a lynch is effected, no post hoc vote changes. Plurality lynching is not in effect.
2. Don't use PM structure, wincons, PM time stamps, or things of that ilk as points of analysis. To me, that's just lazy.
3. No C/Ping anything from your PMs into the game. The exception to this rule: you may quote the literature passage sent to you in your PM. You passage serves as your role justification.
4. No communicating via non-mod-initiated methods. This includes G+ hangouts, rabb.it, PMs on site, PMs offsite, etc. If you suspect or know that any such communication is taking place, you are obligated to inform me immediately. Remember, paraphrasing is your friend. An acceptable paraphrase should substantially change the original wording of the passage, and that change should be noticeably more than mere deletion or addition.
5. Don't troll or be a jerk--observe good conduct.
6. You must play to your wincon; play to win.
7. Be active. Not posting in a DP will get you replaced. I need to see 5 substantive posts per DP at a minimum. You will only be guaranteed 1 warning in this regard.
8. If you are asking me a question in the DP, please bold it.
9. All DPs will be 72 hours until the number of players reaches the single digits. At that point, all DPs will become 48 hours.
10. I am willing to grant extensions for the DPs or NPs upon request, but it will be at my discretion whether to grant those requests. DP extensions will be 12-24 hours; NP extensions will be 6-12 hours.
11. I may post various quotes in the OPs or Final Tallies of the DP, but these should not be used as points of analysis. They'll just excerpts of literature that I like, that give the game a literary flare.

==========================================

This is my last report:
I wanted to speak of existence, the ants most of all,
dressed up in their naughty flame-trousers, the exact jaws,
their unknowable kindnesses, their abyss of hungers,
and science, their mercilessness, their prophetic military
devotions, their geometry of scent, their cocoons
for the Nomenclature,

I guess this game is going to be split up by poets and maybe authors/novelists ?

I'm also a poet.

I'd like to do some good ol' fashioned RVS'ing and behavioral analysis. Please, please, please don't start randomly claiming and pressuring for claims. Focus on behaviors. Get some discussion going, hopefully some telling behaviors, and solid reads.

My guy died at the age of 33. Let's see where the Khaos train goes.

I would like to place my vote on Khaos

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Join the wagon!

Nice! 7 posts in and one scum's already down! Although you have to unvote before revoting.

I remove my vote from the wizard that dwells in the realms of insanity

I place my vote on he who does AF

I did unvote. True, it wasn't explicit but nothing in poetry ever is. I'd like to request freedom to use language creatively in this game, as Seventh has already started doing, including the use of the implied unvote (a favorite trope of poets around the world).

Lol...nice try. Request denied. Consider me the evil editor who curtails your artistic creativity and expression. You must explicitly unvote.

For now on, all of my votes will be in heroic couplets.

No, I distrust neutral suffixes.

Then your vote is in the wrong place.

I distrust the French more.

Won't be able to post much until Sunday evening since I'm out of town with bad wifi. I'll just say that my character is a poet.

I don't know what my character is, I forgot. I get the feeling it's a poet though or something, though poetry can hardly be considered literature.

Lol guess the wagons on me. Rvsing is so entertaining. One vote can have so much influence.

It's gonna take some getting used to playing with ringers
