A rope suspends in the archway, gripped in the stone hands of the silent observer. Has it always been there?

Every idea, passionate, every action driven by fear and grief, the crowd rounds upon this pitiful creature, swathed in stinking cloth.
"Poor blind Jack..." mumbles the wretch, "was a lie. I had to deceive you, my children - please know me. I am your King."
This is too much for the pained townsfolk. "How can you villain?" they cry. "Have you no shame?" "Do not mock us!" and finally "You did it! You murdered them!"
They know what must be done, as the crowd burst forth in a torrent, sweeping the detestable thing off its feet and into the air, three attend to the rope, and tie it tight around its neck. There is a silence as the man is held by the crowd. No, not silence. His breathing is quavering and deep; the man weeps.
"You are scared.
You must know that I love you.
This was not your doing, but the work of those who must not be allowed to live. Take back our town. Do not lose heart my loves!
Oh... my poor Queen..."
As one, the town lets out a screech of rage, and inhuman mindless noise that shocks the spirit, and the King drops.
They watched him die. Trembling with relief they turned away, but they were still unsettled. Who was this creature who would destroy our lives? One tore the hood from his face - and recoiled.
Who could describe the dread, the anguish that tormented the body throughout?
Before them, was the gentle face of their King.
"Cut him down!" - the body was taken and layed out on the ground. They could not leave him like this. He needed respect, and the town needed to grieve. Tomorrow must be spent in grace. "We have to feel it."
Orryyrro has been Lynched. He was The King (TOWN COP/PRINCESS/GOSSIP)
It is now Night Two. Day Three will begin in two-three days, but there will be no action and it will go immediately to Night Three. Let's try and get night actions to me within 36 hours?
I should add - Sorry guys! I hope you can see the funny side. I expect you'll have a lot to address me with about this, but would you mind if I respond to your criticism at the end of the game? We'll have a good hard discussion about what a cock I have been then.
