You awake in the dark and the cold to the sound of something grubbling about in the dirt outside your tent. The moon is clouded, stars mute; the air hangs heavy and oppressive. You unzip the flap slowly and poke your head out to investigate the commotion only to find yourself face-to-rear with a Big Brown Bear!
You scream and wet yourself a little. All of a sudden, the world is in motion - naked men are running from the tents, their pale bodies glinting obliquely in the moonlight, stumbling, tumbling in the brush, getting caught in the stakes and cordage. Why does nobody want to stay and talk it out with the bear?
As the sun rises, the members of town trickle back into camp to assess the damage. The site is in shambles. It seems that the absent-minded Admin Epok, before he was cast out by town, left a bacon-drenched towel on top of his tent - presumably because he thought it would be a good idea to attract bears to the site to "increase activity."
The slowest of the group, @Agubar, was eaten by the bear. He was the town Sheriff.
Instead of a day lynch, town will vote today to Deputize a New Sheriff. The Sheriff will be given a bear-gun. (Use the normal vote process with mafiabot to vote for town's new Sheriff. No lynch today.)
@_jdance and @ian were wandering the forest at night looking for a quiet place to be alone together when they tripped over a rock and fell down a deep hole. Some say their fate was a punishment from the gods.
Jdance was the town Tracker.
Ian was an Unhappy Camper.
The bear will likely return to this campsite tonight. Town may want to find a new place to camp during the day.
Day 2 will last until 2022-05-31T03:59:00Z.
