    In a Shocking turn of events, the player known to the rest simply as Majestik was silenced by the killer. Authorities are unsure if the killer(s) just wanted to shut up the prolific poster or just....wait. Wrong guy.

    Maj is dead. Victim of an elaborate trap involving 500 jellyfish, a clownfish and the EAC...dude. Who could have contrived such a cunning end? Who cares. Point fingers at your friends. Vote for your dad. And heat up the Linwood MEmorial Coal Burning oven!!!! yeeeehaaaa.

    The Piston word almost has to be "Wallace" or "Campbell" (Elden) as you pointed out last round.

    I'll do an update of the cast of characters in a minute and then do some sleuthing.

    well if it is one of the two, then it will be for sure by the next murder which it actually is.

    That's true, but as I understand it, the murderer might be using the two basketball words without using the Pistons word--in that case, the A L L E C could be in a non-Pistons, non-Basketball word, such as "challenge."

    No. Theoretically, the murderer doesn't even have to use those letters anywhere in his entire post. BUT...those letters are part of the Pistons word.

    So he has a choice of using two of three words in any given murder post. He can change words with different murders. If he uses the Piston word in a murder post, THAT Pistons word has the letters A L L E C in them.

    So if our murderer used a Piston word as one of the two (of 3 possible) then it MUST have those letters.

    So if his words are hoop, rim ,and Wallace he can use:

    Wallace and hoop for one murder

    rim and hoop for the next

    Wallace and EITHER hoop or rim for the next. Or hoop and rim again, etc.

    Any combination is acceptable.

    So our clue is that the Piston word has certain letters. It's not much to go on.

    It seems that if a Pistons murder word appears in a murder post, it's only there because the murderer is trying to taunt the other players.

    I'm saying I think we might not see the Pistons word at all--it's too much of a giveaway. Using something like "hoop" and "rim" (from your example) is much sneakier.

    Well, yes except for the fact that (using the example) by now with five murders if the murderer(s) have both never used the Pistons word Wallace it would mean that basketball words "hoop" and "rim" both would have appeared in five murder posts. Inspector Clouseau on high alert!

    Slippy said we'd have to look for patterns. Think everyone. Is there a pair of basketball words we've seen alot of? We're all dead if the words are team and basketball. :pound: Believe it or not, I'm working on a spreadsheet. But with generic basketball words, there's alot of data.

    but actually, "hoop" and "rim" are just examples, correct?

    so in fact, if the murderer(s) have both never used "Wallace" (which, as lurker said, they have no reason to do except to sort of toy with us) the clue words could be absolutely anything related to basketball...

    tashawn, how come you voted for Dumars4Ever?

    i'm really at a loss here...and it's the busiest time of the week for me, but if someone thinks through some promising lead, i'll be happy to try to think through it with them.

    I do have a lead, Prof:

    In the "Rasheed Wallace: the key" thread. Highly suspicious post.

    It's post #26. It uses the words Elden "Campbell" a possible Piston word plus several other generics in its text and also in its quote.

    Lurker. You are wanted in the station...for questioning, Sir.

    He also uses Wallace in that same post. Hmmm... interesting.

    What do you have to say for yourself Lurker?

    I write a actual basketball-related post, and not only does nobody respond to what I wrote, but I get accused of murder for it. :mad:

    Look, I'm not pretending about not understanding the rules. If I were the killer, maybe I would be the one "helpfully" answering others' questions while plotting world domination. It's a shame we didn't bake you when we had the chance, Mr. Sheldon J. Plankton.

    LMAO. :pound: I just saw that episode where the computer called him "Sheldon" the other day.

    So, you've figured out my scheme. I thought my avatar was a subtle hint. Darn. Now you've gotta get cooked for it.

    BTW...you DID try to bake me. Looks like there has been a change on the menu for tonight. I'll bring the weenies and Marshmallows. Fire up the Linwood Memorial oven guys.
