Not much is known about the religion practised within the Fortress of Lies! Documentation is scarce, centered around the inscription (depicted above), which, translated into Toki-Eng-Litch, reads “SETUPPE DESIGNE IS MINE PASSIONE”. The meaning of these words is unclear, and so historians and archeologists have to engage in Interpretation, the main subject of this unit of your course.
Interpretation is the key to historical analysis! For example, some historians, such as Adoris Boneweave III, believe this to be an exultation of the Foallean’s high valuation of the foundations of various fields: they were famous, after all, for deriving from first principles things such as language in the course of their daily jobs, referred to by the archaic term “GAME”. This is referred to as the “Orthodox” view, and is held by most respectable historians! Others, however, disagree: Unlael Iridum has offered the alternative interpretation that this statement was in fact sarcastic, and it refers to something else.
Come up with two different ways historians could potentially interpret the common phrase “To the horse, the light”, assuming they know nothing about the context of that phrase. Give reasons why!
- Historical Foundations 2: The Fortress Of Lies, Alejandro Rodriguez et. al., 2499.
I think it’s important to note that impartiality is not neutral! For example, in Historial Foundations 2, a textbook that is ~still in usage today (I’m not all that connected in education circles, please correct me if I’m wrong.), the orthodox view of the Fortress Of Lies’ religious motto, which is agreed with by 100% of all respectable historians, is presented as totally equal to the sarcasm hypothesis, which, as long-time readers of this blog will know, is based on no conceivable evidence and in fact exists to support a political agenda. It’s important to pay attention to this sort of thing!

The truth in some cases, of course, emerges very quickly indeed: over the course of 12 hours, a series of facts were drawn like water from the aquifer of reality:
- They were, in fact, in 2023.
- They had seemingly all been channeled, by unknown means, into the bodies of the inhabitants of the Fortress.
- They had gained the skills, goals, and some part of the beliefs of those bodies.
- They really, really wanted to kill someone.
In the shadow of a rampart, a six-sided face watched. If you looked closely enough at it, it would seem to be screaming noise made out of silence. Words such as:
JEOPARDY, BIRD, DRONE, FLOCK, KILL, CREATURE, KILL, CREATURE, KILL…
The droning incessant. As the light drew in, whatever this beast was drew minds in its’ wake, eyelids fluttering in mouthless laughter. Was this the thing that had drawn them there?
And then they awoke. A body fell on the floor, leaking a substance that was very definitely not blood: purple. Looking at it for too long caused images of hatred: bullies, bosses, hounds, tigers, oh gods, oh so many beasts, to shimmer in your peripheral vision.
“We… I remember one of us doing this.” she said. Never mind who she was. She could’ve been anyone. She was probably you.
There was another body, two. Six faces. Utterly still. Yet, they were not home: the patent truth of monsters is that their dissolution is never enough. Both cadavers seemed disastrously unimportant in the face of it. Weeping, they gave burials and libations of scorn, and entered quarters hewn for other flesh: flesh they were now borrowing.
There was nothing left but to wait, then act.

I am “liking” night actions to record that I am entering them into the night action spreadsheet. If you submit a night action, and after a few hours it has not been liked, please remind us – it may have been missed.
If you decide to change your action, you should send a new message rather than editing your existing message – otherwise we may miss it.
for anyone who is invested in the SHEEP scores, there has been a minor change in the top placings as a result of a mistake on my end

Host Disclaimer: This announcement was supposed to be made at start of day 1.
@thepigeonnyc has been modkilled. They were:
You are sulit, Town Cat Vigilante. You are known for many things, but this time we’re focusing on the most important one: your cats. Your grey cat, Honeycat, is an iconic FoL cat, but you’ve also adopted two other cats, including a black cat named Void. This game, Voidcat will be represented by a void.
Notorious L-I-T (Passive): The Mafia are aware that your role is present in the game.
Void (Night): Curse target player to go to the Void . It will be publicly announced that a player has been Cursed, and will be sent to the Void at the end of the Day. A player sent to the Void dies. If you die, all Curses are removed.
Toast (Passive): You are in a neighborhood called Toast’s Domain, which will close when you die. Players you kill will join Toast’s Domain instead of dead chat if they are a member of the Town or have an unknown alignment. If a player in Toast’s Domain is ever revealed to not be a member of the Town, they are removed.
Honey (Cycle, Immediate): Remove chosen player from Toast’s Domain.
You win the game when the Mafia and all other threats to the Town have been eliminated.
Compensation for the affected faction(s) may be given.
