Yes. I'm the king and I put on the beggar disguise to try and find out who killed my wife. In order to throw suspicion from myself I pretend to be insane, hence the second poem's requirement of being posted when my role is under suspicion. I say second poem because I also have a poem talking about who I, King Fartinbras, am.
...I see at least one problem with the flavour, but there's something much more obvious I need to point out.
9. Do not quote or paraphrase too closely any PMs you receive from the mod.
Copying from a PM breaks rule 9.
Posting the first poem, copied from the PM if you are telling the truth, still
breaks rule 9.
You have not broken rule 9.
The way I see it, there are two possible scenarios here:
1) Joe is lying.
Either we have a bastard mod on our hands, who instructs players to break rules and then tells everyone else they have done nothing wrong, or...
2) Orry is lying.
Are there any other scenarios that could explain this situation?
