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.

12 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 #14 Info)
*****

*The remaining four players, DarkPriest, MasterDarkNinja, Gamewolf252, and Deluge walked into the seating area. It had become a very familiar place for them, as they have come here many times before to eliminate other players from the game.

These players, all 12 of them were sitting to the right of them, observing their actions, and presiding as the jury.*

Mateui: You have made it into the final four, and now have a 25% chance of winning the title of Making the Cut Winner. One of you however, will now be eliminated, and will join the almost full jury.

You may vote. Deluge, you’re up first.

*Deluge stood up from his seat, and walked up to the voting area. He was now standing in front of his vote ballot. He thought for a while.. this was not an easy decision. Finally, he wrote down a name.*

MasterDarkNinja

Deluge: Because I think the others will vote for him, too.

*Deluge put his vote inside the container, walked back to the seating area, and sat down in his seat.*

Mateui: MDN, it is your turn to cast your vote.

*MDN stood up and quickly looked at DarkPriest and Gamewolf.. He looked away, and then walked up to the voting platform. He wrote down a name.*

DarkPriest

MDN: The time has come, I've saved him for this moment since he has the most votes on him out of everyone left, plus he is now useless as a wall. So now it's time for him to go back into the jury.

Gamewolf said that both Deluge and DP PMed him asking for an alliance with him, Deluge said that he was gonna vote for DP and that DP will be the only one voting for me. I haven't really prepared for the round of 2 since I didn't think that I'd make it, but now from what that Gamewolf is doing he might end up losing in that round but I doubt it. If I get to the final round I wouldn't care if I won or lost since I was still one of the final 2.

*MDN put his vote inside the container, and walked back to his seat. Gamewolf and DarkPriest both looked at him, as if he had just betrayed them in some way.*

Mateui: DarkPriest, you’re up.

*DP got up from his seat, and made his way to the voting platform. He wrote down a name.*

The Name is hidden from the camera.

DarkPriest: Because he is a persistant player and he should go.

*DP cast his vote, and then went back to his seat.*

Mateui: Alright, Gamewolf, you may now vote.

*Gamewolf walked to the voting platform, and thought very hard about his decision.. He felt like he would be the wild card – deciding who would be cut tonight. He didn’t like the pressure, but he needed to vote.*

The Name is hidden from the camera.

Gamewolf: Not much to say, really...

*Gamewolf had voted, and got back to his seat.*

Mateui: Alright – everyone has voted. I’ll go tally the votes.

*Mateui left the seating area, leaving the four remaining players behind. Their anticipation was great.. but they were all very nervous. Anybody could be eliminated.*


VOTING:

*Mateui came back into the seating area with the canister in hand. He placed in down on a table in front of himself.*

Mateui: Alright, once the votes are read the decision is final – the person cut will be asked to leave the area immediately.

1st Vote:
MasterDarkNinja

2nd Vote:
DarkPriest

3rd Vote:
MasterDarkNinja

Mateui: MDN you have 2 votes, DP you have 1. There's only 1 vote left, will MDN be cut, or will the game endure another painstaking tie?

4th Vote:
DarkPriest


Mateui: My oh my.. another tie. I’m sorry to say this, but one of you has more past votes than the other one. As you probably already know, DarkPriest has the majority of past votes against him, having been already cut, but brought back.

DarkPriest, it is time for you to go back to the jury.


*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 10 name cards are suspended by single strings. Long below, is a blazing fire. Mateui walks up to the place where the name “DarkPriest” is written on the card (His second one). Mateui reaches into his pocket, and takes out a pair of scissors.*

*DP is pretty sad.. He is experiencing a painful déja vue.*

*Mateui 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: Do you have any final words?

*DP slowly nods*

DP: Oh well, I guess it was a given that an admin couldn't win this game.

Still... which one betrayed me? Was it deluge or Gamewolf?

No harsh feelings, I just want to know (so I can ban you and edit your sig to say "I SUCK KOCK LOL").

(Just kidding).

Also MDN, this is far from over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111111111oneoneone

(/failed to appear wrathful)

*Gamewolf went down in his seat.. He didn’t want the other players and the jury to think that he was a big liar. But it was too late, DP had said his words, and the jury had heard.. but there was still a chance they might think it was Deluge..*

*DP looked back for a final time, took his things, and left the area.*

Mateui: Congratulations on becoming the final three. Tomorrow, we will have our final round, and only two will remain. Then the winner will be decided.

Rest up a bit, you may need it.


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.)

DarkPriest: In this round I knew I had to get both Deluge and Gamewolf to vote for MDN - because if I couldn't, they'd either all vote me off or I'd get two votes and MDN'd get two. In that case, my huge amount of old votes would get me off. Alas, it was not meant to be. ^_^
Granted, both Deluge and Gamewolf agreed to vote for MDN. Too bad the other was just lying...

MDN: With Gamewolf and DP still in the game my risky plan of having DP stay in the game until this round had worked. I knew that DP and Deluge would eventually ally and try to vote me out in this round but it was fun hearing from Gamewolf what DP was doing. I was surprised when DP said "Who was it this time, was it Deluge or Gamewolf" when he wanted to know who betrayed him and voted him out that time since I thought everyone knew about Gamewolf being my ally by then.

Gamewolf: Hm... Hard to remember what I was thinking... Me and MDN were- OH YEAH! Id cooked up some elaborate plot, I think... Involving fake alliances and things (both deluge and DP wanted an alliance with me... although I’m not sure if it was a trick or what)... But that didn’t make a difference (I think, CANT REMEMBER ><)... And DP DIED HAHAHAHA :P

Deluge: It is indeed true that I allied with DP at the beginning of this round. However, I allied with Gamewolf as well, even though I knew his ally was MDN (partly because MDN posted several of his conversations with Gamewolf in previous rounds). I had somewhat of a plan, but I'm not going to reveal that just yet. ;]


VOTES REVEALED:

(This section simply points out who everyone voted for in this episode. You can really figure out who was allied with who by examining this info.)


MasterDarkNinja -> DarkPriest
Gamewolf252 -> DarkPriest
Deluge -> MDN
DarkPriest -> MDN


NEXT TIME ON MTC:

- With only 3 players left things get heated up as they cast their final vote.
- Who will be the last cut? Who will be in the final two? And most of all, who will win Making the Cut?


All this and more, in the exciting conclusion of Making the Cut. Tune in!
