LYNCHED LAST DP

Vaar - You are SEXTA OPIMIA BASSA, wife of Gnaeus Iulius Scaevola. Because of your deep devotion to Saturn, you are the BELIEVER. You may sacrifice or leave as tribute to Saturn a sheep, a cow, a goat, a pig, grain, cheese or wine once per NP. You may not repeat a sacrifice; so, once you sacrifice the sheep, you cannot sacrifice the sheep again. If Saturn is pleased with your choice of sacrifice, he will grant you a 1-shot ability that you must use that night or the next night, and which will expire on the third. You cannot use more than one 1-shot ability in a NP. You win with the innocent.

Hidden Clue: "Upon returning to Rome from his success campaign in Numidia, Acilius remarked to me, 'Habeo quod triumphus meus.' The celebrations and feasts for Acilius were tremendous, with Gnaeus and Atellus, Aediles, putting on an extravagant set of games in his honor. The excess was revolting." - Publius Caecilius Postumus, excerpted from a letter written to an unidentified second party

PICTOR's HISTORY, PART 4

Acilius, with the support of Postumus and Caninus, requested a command in Numidia to aid the Mauritanians in their defense against incursions from the Numidians. Acilius would take Rufus, who had gained a reputation as more interested in mistresses than work, and who had amassed great debts paying for them, with him again as a second in command, and the two, far away from Rome, would have better success on this campaign. After a series of indecisive victories, Acilius, who had forced the Numidians on the retreat, intercepted them on their way to Cirta, and destroyed more than two-thirds of their army, forcing their surrender and ending the conflict. He would take on the honorific agnomen Numidicus and would parlay his successful campaign there into a second consulship and, later, a censorship. He would also marry Fabricia Lepida, who he had been promised to wed before he had left for Thrace. Rufus would use the plunder he took from Numidia to settle his debts and become an Aedile; he would eventually marry into gens Iulia and would write a history of his two campaigns.

It was two weeks after Acilius's departure that the Senate began--in earnest--the inquest into the death of Poplicola. Appius Acilius Capito, Praetor; Lucius Fabricius Caninus, who was consul with Poplicola during Poplicola's campaign in Pontus and Cappadocia; Septimus Autronius Atellus, Quaestor, whose daughter (Autronia Pulchra) was married to Nasica; Aggripa; Natta; and Novellus, would serve as the primary voices in the debate. Aggripa and Natta charged Metellus with the murder, claiming that he had sought to use the murder as a tool to become consul. Novellus, Atellus, and Capito accused Aulus of killing him, for interfering in his grain program, which was Aulus's most popular platform piece among the plebs and the equites. And Caninus blamed Thracians in Rome, arguing that they would have likely exacted revenge on the man who reinforced Roman dominion over their homeland.

The Senate, deeply divided, decided to endorse Caninus's proposal. The magistrates hunted for any Thracians who may have been guilty of the murder, and did execute some who they believed were uncooperative with the investigation, though the search was unsuccessful in precisely identifying the perpetrators. The mystery, in other words, remained unsolved.

Fearing continued pressure for Populares positions, Titus Autronius Saturninus and Hostus Acilius Corvus, Censors, on Postumus's advice, removed gentes Iulia, Vitruvia, and Ulpia from the Senate, sparking massive controversy and further social unrest. Postumus pushed a law through the Concilium Plebis reaffirming that it was illegal to seek consecutive consulships or to seek office in absentia, despite the vociferous objections of many of his fellow Senators. His attempt to strip Poplicola posthumously of his second and third consulships was vetoed by the Tribunate, and sparked several violent clashes throughout the city. To reduce the political tensions, marriages were secured between Maxima Galeria Cana and Aggripa and Mamerca Livia Laterensis and Natta, bring Optimates and Populares together in marriage for a time. The next year, Gracchus was elected consul with Nasica, and Caninus and Natta were elected censors; an even split between the factions. The banned gentes were reinstated, and things generally remained calm for several years, at least until the riots that saw the death of Metellus.

I've been suspicious of him since the end of dp1 and since then this is literally all he's done, so it hasn't gone away at all.

I was trying to find the specific posts but it's like a needle in a haystack in dp1. Basically there was a section where he was acting really defeatist about the dp1 lynch and almost trying to defend a mislynch in advance, which didn't seem right to me. He also wasn't really contributing much besides pointing out Latin/Roman thing.

I don't have much time rn, but I think at least one scum can be found on the back half of the Vaar wagon. And how easily that wagon took off compared to Amal's (plus his scumminess from yesterday) also probably means Amal is scum.

http://www.debate.org...
This post from Opsi remains terrible, and he seemed to want to find excuses to hold off on lynching TUF, and even his character claim about rising to power through money ("payments and tributes to [his] political allies and rivals") is scummy as the flips/excerpts seem to cast moneyed interests in a negative light.

And don't forget that we'll have a confirmed scum tomorrow when someone gets "mod-confirmed" town after stealing Fire's role. Pretty sure that's what happened.

VTL Amal

Let's get wagons on Amal and Oro please. I also reread for the bottom part of my list from yesterday.

VTL Amal

I'm fine with either an Oro, Ops, or Zam counterwagon. The more I look at Zam the more I think his case on TUF was a bus.

I'd like to hear his case on Obi too. I mean, if its another bus, cool, but something tells me his lack of a case is more that he didn't really have a good one so he just didn't come out with it.
