Harry was still checking the Marauder's Map, and as he was unable to locate Malfoy on it, deduced that Malfoy was still spending plenty of time within the room. Although Harry was losing hope that he would ever succeed in getting inside the Room of Requirement, he attempted it whenever he was in the vicinity, but no matter how he reworded his request, the wall remained firmly doorless.

A few days before the match against Ravenclaw, Harry found himself walking down to dinner alone from the common room, Ron having rushed off into a nearby bathroom to throw up yet again, and Hermione having dashed off to see Professor Vector about a mistake she thought she might have made in her last Arithmancy essay. More out of habit than anything, Harry made his usual detour along the seventh-floor corridor, checking the Marauder's Map as he went.

For a moment he could not find Malfoy anywhere and assumed he must indeed be inside the Room of Requirement again, but then he saw Malfoy's tiny, labeled dot standing in a boys' bathroom on the floor below, accompanied, not by Crabbe or Goyle, but by Moaning Myrtle. Harry only stopped staring at this unlikely coupling when he walked right into a suit of armor. The loud crash brought him out of his reverie; hurrying from the scene lest Filch turn up, he dashed down the marble staircase and along the passageway below.

Pierrot thought he was Remus but was actually that suit of armor. He is dead.

I mean, I don't, either, but consider my conundrum:

Were I to pick at random, which I more or less did, the BEST-CASE odds of my picking 3 Good players -- assuming Snape went over to Good -- are (7/12)*(6/11)*(5/10) which is 15%. Assuming Snape went over to Evil, which they better have done otherwise they are a total shook bitch, the odds are closer to 10%.

So this is a pretty impossible situation to be in, and this game is stacked as hell toward Evil, but shit, we have to start somewhere.

Also, I thought about putting you on a team but you're being so level-headed right now I can only assume you're Evil.


That's Werewolf. This is Resistance.

Also, I'm still researching lore to get my feet under me, as I have reason to believe invoking Bread's wrath by way of making Harry Potter Lore Continuity Errors would be a Very Bad Idea.

Team One, led by Snatch, was approved with

12 yes votes (including double votes)
Catullus
doritopassion
Geoff
granger
kit fox
sevenarts
Snatch
snitch
surly
TES
werd

1 no votes (including double votes)
VH Balanced

1 non-vote
iambic

The mission, which was "to play and beat the whomping willow in a game of wizard tennis, a sport [Snatch] invented after getting a bit too smashed on firewhiskey, stumbling into a muggle 'bar,' whatever that is, and seeing tennis on television...whatever that is," was a SUCCESS.

great work everyone, we are going to win

kit fox you should obviously suggest the same team as it was successful

you can add yourself if you are good and another you feel good about, I would avoid vh, he clearly doesn't have our best interests in mind

I still don't trust everyone in that foursome.

However, now that we're using it, keeping all 4 present in the next team of 6 is the most prudent move, as it would SEEM to help isolate members 5 and 6 of this next mission team should it fail. (BUt if there is an evildoer in that 4 biding their time, this is exactly what they're counting on us assuming).

It's far from as certain or "obvious" as Werd suggests.

What is obvious is that neither Iambic nor Myself have an abnormal vote count (i.e. we're not the 2 vote roles nor the 0 vote role). All 3 such players voted in favor of the team.

pettigrew out there makes the logic a bit shaky too.

Fwiw I was on that team and don't fully trust that everyone besides me was good. I mean, that's only smart, right? I watched last game and it seems like an evil player approved 2 missions before voting against 1. Not sure if that's good strategy or liable to happen again but it's worth considering.

This game is best 4 of 7 rather than 3 of 5 [plus there's undo/veto artifacts this time around that can mess with the count as well] so team evil has even more wiggle room to pass on sabotaging the first mission than before.

All four of you could well be good. Wouldn't be the first time I was wrong! However, it is faulty to assume all four of you are just because mission 1 succeeded, or think its success proves the goodness of all four of you.
