Quit Time

Welcome to the 11th and 12th Round of Making the Cut (MTC, in short.)

(To make this whole document easier to understand, I will post the actual words that were spoken during the game, to help shape the episodes and occurrences.)

Erave
Turkpimp
Fire Mage
Cawin


And so, 16 have signed up for a journey of epic proportions, including serious backstabbing, secret alliances, revengeful actions, and voting one another out of the game, in essence, 'cutting' the other members out, who will wait until the last round, to vote for one of two people, who will become the ultimate survivor of Making the Cut.

10 are already cut, and they have become the first few members of the jury. In the end, only 2 will be left, and the remaining 14 who have been cut will decide upon the winner.

*****
(Round #11 Info)
*****

*The participants are sitting in the seating area. The jury, which now includes 9 people, are watching the remaining players closely. They have their eyes fixed intently on DarkPriest, who was once a jury member, but was brought back into the game. What will happen to him tonight? With the other players send him back to his doom, or will someone else be cut?*

Mateui: I have an important announcement to make.

*Everyone grows quiet, and listens attentively.*

Mateui: Someone has expressed a desire to quit the game.

*Everyone gasps! Who could it be?*

Mateui: This person is... Geno_SMRPG. He is having difficulty with getting to the round each time around. Thus, he has expressed a desire to be removed willingly from the game.

*Mateui walks up to the area a few meters in front of the seating area. A long bamboo branch is hanged between two tree branches, and 16 name cards are suspended by single strings. Long below, is a blazing fire. Mateui walks up to the place where the name “Geno_SMRPG” is on the card. Mateui reaches into his pocket, and takes out a pair of scissors. He then takes the scissors, and cuts the string that holds his card. The card begins to fall, slowly fluttering in the wind, until it enters the fire underneath all the names, and is burned to a crisp. Only ashes remain.*

*The reactions on the player’s faces is somewhat pulling both ways. While it’s sad to see someone leave the game, it means that they’re closer to becoming the winner.*

Mateui: Well, that was a pretty short round. Rest up a bit – Round #12 will commence shortly.


CONFESSIONALS:

(This section will inform you about various things – things such as who voted for who, who allied with who, the strategy that was used by some participants, and generally, what was happening in the heart of the game. The members speak out.)

NO CONFESSIONALS THIS ROUND!


NEXT TIME ON MTC:

- In Round #12, with only 6 players, some are forced to vote against past allies.

All this and more next!

(Round #12 Info)
*****

*After having rested for a while, the 6 remaining players returned to the seating area, anxious to begin another round. The jury watched as well, eagerly anticipating what was to come.*

Mateui: Round #12 will now begin. I will inform you that the round is normal, no twists, no surprises, only a regular vote, where the player with the most votes will be removed.

*“Finally”, some players thought. A normal round is a good round.*

Mateui: You may begin voting. Koromai, you’re up first.

*Koromai stood up, and walked up to the voting platform. He wrote down a name on the vote ballot, and held it up to the camera.*

Safari

Koromai: Blah. Don’t know.

*Koromai put the vote inside the container, and went back to his seat. It was now MDN’s turn to vote. He made it up to the voting platform, and wrote down a name. The ballot was held up.*

Koromai

MDN: If Dark Priest knew he'd be shocked that I'm not after him this round since he's obviously after me. I however figure that Dark Priest could be a useful wall in a PA round if one comes later on.

Well since Geno is now out of the game I had to change my plans, I found that he was easy to control just like he was for Erave, however once Geno left the game it was down to me and Gamewolf since Koromai777 had betrayed us, I spoke to him on MSN and told him lies for my plan but while he didn't say what his plans were it's clear to me that's he’s gonna vote for me this round, so then I remember what Safari told me and Gamewolf the last time that he had PA power. He said that he was gonna go after Koromai in the next round and I figured that changing his mind would be too difficult and could backfire so we decided to go to Koromai instead. While I do find what Safari claims he wants odd of me him and Gamewolf being in the last round from how he knows that me and Gamewolf are allied since he could of gotten rid of me in the last PA round (and I was certain that he would) I decided to trust him for now. This round could be close though if Deluge and Koromai are under Dark Priest's control, I'm expecting a tie at the moment.)

*Having fully explained his situation, MDN put the vote into the container, went back to his seat, and promptly sat down. Deluge went up to vote, and swiftly came back. After that, DarkPriest went to the voting platform, and scribbled down a name.*

MDN

DarkPriest: I vote for MasterDarkNinja. Reason: CUZ I CAN OMG. U can't touch dis.

*DP went back to his seat, and then Gamewolf went up. He wrote down a name on his ballot.*

The name is hidden from view

Gamewolf: Im sorry man ;_; I just gotta ;_;

*Gamewolf had to vote for someone he did not want to go – but he needed to make that move – it was his life or the life of the other person.. He needed to choose himself.*

*Gamewolf had now sat down on his seat, and the last voter, Safari, walked up to the voting platform, in the most arrogant way he could. He thought it would be funny this way, and besides, taunting others is a good tactic to show you have the power. He wrote down a name.*

Safari: As MDN and Gamewolf have probably told you, we haven't really formed an alliance, but we're going to be voting the same way, so without further ado:

Koromai

Safari: He's kinda like the game's wildcard. No real alliances or anything, just playing it by ear like I have. It's kinda scary. :o

*Safari walked back down to his seat.*

*Everyone had now voted – soon, the votes would be heard, and someone else would be joining the jury.*

Mateui: I’ll go tally the votes.

*A few minutes passed, and Mateui finally had come back with the vote container.*

Mateui: The competition is getting more intense, as there are starting to be less and less people left in the game. One of you six will be cut from the game this round, and only 5 will be left. Ready to see the cut?

VOTING:

1st Vote:
MasterDarkNinja.

2nd Vote:
Safari

3rd Vote:
Koromai777

4th Vote:
Safari

5th Vote:
Koromai


Mateui: Alright. Koromai, and Safari, you're both tied at 2 votes. There's only 1 vote left to see - and that vote, will decide who will be cut this round.

6th Vote:
Koromai777


*Mateui walks up to the area a few meters in front of the seating area. A long bamboo branch is hanged between two tree branches, and 16 name cards are suspended by single strings. Long below, is a blazing fire. Mateui walks up to the place where the name “Koromai777” is on the card. Mateui reaches into his pocket, and takes out a pair of scissors. He then takes the scissors, and cuts the string that holds his card. The card begins to fall, slowly fluttering in the wind, until it enters the fire underneath all the names, and is burned to a crisp. Only ashes remain.*

Mateui: Well, there you have it. The wildcard of the game has been cut. There are only 5 of you left, and only 3 more rounds to go. You now have a 1 in 5 chance of winning Making the Cut. How confident are you? Can you trust anyone? And what about the jury? What do they think of you? The next three rounds will be crucial and important to survive. Good luck.


CONFESSIONALS:

(This section will inform you about various things – things such as who voted for who (and for what reasons), who allied with who, the strategy that was used by some participants, and generally, what was happening in the heart of the game. The members speak out.)

Deluge: Koromai was the only person still in the game that I felt I could really trust (he was my ally). There weren't many rounds left in the game, so I had to think quick. My main two choices were:

A. Find a new ally.

B. Develop a strategy of some sort...

What was I going to choose...? I didn't think I was going to make it much further, so I didn't worry too much about my decision.

MDN: With 6 people left and how I didn't trust Koromai anymore and was worried that he could be after me and just having Gamewolf left for an ally I was getting worried. I decided in the end to make sure that Safari was still voting for Koromai and to vote with him to get rid of Koromai. Then in the next round I was going to use Deluge to vote out Safari.

I had decided at this point that it would be the wisest to save DP for the round of 4 people left, even though it was a VERY risky plan to let someone who wanted revenge for my earlier betrayal stay in the game. So yeah I ended up falling right into Safari's trap of trying to get us to vote for Koromai in that round.


VOTES REVEALED:

(This section simply points out who everyone voted for)

Koromai777 -> Safari
MasterDarkNinja -> Koromai
Safari -> Koromai
Gamewolf252 -> Koromai
Deluge -> Safari
DarkPriest -> MDN


NEXT TIME ON MTC:

- With only 5 players, things get heated up real fast.
- Round 13, will it be the unlucky round for someone, or will a twist be destined to arrive?.

All this and more in Episode #13. Tune in!
