Gammagooey, Mayor Jonathan Gunshow 1-shot bulletproof 2-shot strongman serial killer, has died.

Mayor Jonathan Gunshow (born Jonathan Carroll) was first elected as mayor of Echo Bay, Maryland in 2010 at only 24 years old on a platform of crime reduction and better access to public utilities, but it was his backing by firearm lobbyists that secured his victory. having his last name legally changed to "Gunshow" was little more than a publicity stunt, and many have theorized that he neither expected nor desired to actually be elected mayor, and that going into politics was little more than a ploy to avoid having to find a real job after being left to find his own way in life by his reclusive, wealthy father. in the eight years since, however, he has strengthened his relationship with gun and ammunition manufacturers, including Echo Bay Munitions Co., a relatively new company headquartered in his own city founded just two years before his first election. now at 32 years old, he faces reelection next fall, but sources close to him suggest that he might instead be preparing for a Senate run. he regularly assures constituents that, despite his financial support from Echo Bay Munitions, Co., he fully understands their desires for increased gun control and that his benefactor in fact shares many of their same concerns; whether this has any real bearing on how the company is run has remained in question until now. one thing, however, is certain: either Jonathan Gunshow proves definitively that he truly serves the people's interests and is acting on their behalf, or his political career faces extinction -- though, of course, not in a literal sense, because obviously there's no reason for anyone to believe that real physical harm will come to him any time soon.

Echo Bay Munitions Co. (Not_Mafia, light_ganski, Theta Alpine, and Davsto the traitor), have won.

Echo Bay Munitions, Co. was founded in 2008, and little is known about how the company actually operates by outsiders, or for that matter, the people who work there. the privately owned company has a number of top secret government weapons contracts, and it's well known that they perform testing just outside the city, but what exactly they're testing--or why--remains a mystery to those who do not work for the company.

however, even for those who do work there, much of it is shrouded in mystery; the employees are spread primarily across three buildings, with a handful of other employees working remotely, and even those who work within the company are unlikely to know more than a small handful of others there. some of those who are part of the company's engineering team, however, are part of a new initiative within the company to create a new paradigm in how firearms are made available to private citizens.

as controversy surrounding the accessibility of lethal weapons has increased throughout the country, Echo Bay Munitions Co. has found a new solution that they believe will actually increase their profitability: rather than decreasing access to firearms, simply reduce the amount of bullets available for purchase, create reusable bullets known as SmartBullets that track which individuals have used them recently, and charge high licensing fees for the rights to fire a gun. they reason that this will make it nearly impossible for anyone to shoot more than one person in a single day, which will decrease the number of violent crimes that take place; it would require some sort of mass panic for that sort of thing to happen. and obviously there's no real need for them to worry about that kind of thing happening, because the societal conditions to create that sort of event are just incredibly unlikely.

while the company remains committed to more conventional means when it comes to their various government contracts, they remain fully committed to this plan, and intend to roll it out in one year; while it might prove unpopular with some, they believe that they will be able to convince legislators that this is the best, most reasonable way to prevent further tragedies while also ensuring that they are the only company capable of producing legal consumer firearms, thus ensuring their long-term profitability. one thing remains certain, though: the top executives of Echo Bay Munitions Co. will definitely never face any consequences for their actions under any conditions no matter what; they don't even live in Echo Bay, just so that they won't be there in case anything ever goes wrong.


Executor log
April 29, 2018
sequence two has ended, and the munitions company had the only survivors. the Three Operatives could not possibly have done any worse at eliminating the company against which they sought revenge.

sequence three will commence soon. there are more preparations to be done, and the town will need to be restocked with new people to carry out the task. for now though, the next step is looking into the sister company Future Core Neural Designs. they will presumably continue to carry forth their planned research.

I assume when Markus Sr.’s will appointed me as the Executor that he didn't intend for me to gut two companies with which he was deeply involved and to murder his son. well, our family always did have our… complications, didn't it?

also you can expect "Future Core Neural Designs Mafia" to come to a mini theme queue near you sometime, uh, in the future! it will continue the ongoing story that this game is part of, so if you enjoyed my extensive lore, there will probably be some of that there. you probably noticed some SHOCKING REVELATIONS throughout day 3 and the end of the game if you were following the lore for this game, with multiple twists and shocking surprises

I will release private topics soon! it's a lot of work though so gimme a minute

also the game was technically over the moment Gammagooey shot Ausuka but you KNOW I love that drama and creating the possibility that the game isn't actually over

gg everyone!

and thanks for running it xyzzy, it was great! Definitely think the best team won here, I had okay scumreads (esp. near the end of d1) but that wasn't nearly enough when a scumteam member shot their own team before town got a chance to

I do wanna point out that right around half of all the scum in the entire game hid in that silly "don't shoot us" block and all you people that didn't have survival as part of your win condition that were too afraid to shoot in there should look at themselves v. sternly in the mirror

I obv excuse myself because I don't like dying and that almost worked out for me

check out the absolute horseshit setup I originally had in mind for this game! Alisae convinced me that having a faction with six traitors was a fucking stupid idea for assholes and damn if e wasn't right: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=76096&p=10145059#p10145059

oh, did Dav get converted to munitions scum when light shot him d2? I wasn't sure if a daykill would count for that and was considering the worst as a traitor that got converted and that's why he claimed 2-shot bp until I went back and saw dead town had shot him
