You gather once more at the festival square. It's a non-market day today, but some entertainers are already setting up in the centre. A couple of stray dog-jackal crosses are nosing around a pile of garbage.
Hang on... There are only 12 of you.
Down the main street leading up to the square, a crier is proclaiming the day's news... “The flood is expected to come early! Strange noises in the temple of Bast – priestesses say they're feelin' optimistic! Pharaoh has ordered sacrifice to Anubis after gruesome murder revealed at the pyramid site!”
Gruesome murder at the pyramid site? You charge off to check it out.
A crowd has already gathered: you elbow them apart and behold Krypsyn's broken body, outlining a depression in the dust and gravel from where he's clearly been pushed from the top of the scaffolding, and has bumped and dropped all the way down the unfinished and not-yet smoothed pyramid sides. A reddish trail of flood and pieces of flesh marks his passage down the steps of the monument. As one being, you shudder.
Krypsyn has been murdered.
He was Kheruef the Construction Foreman - TOWN WATCHER
It is now Day 4.
With 12 alive, it takes 7 to lynch.
The deadline for this day is 14th February at 23:00 GMT. <3
