At this point anyone who doesn't claim is gonna seem fishy. But I agree that Zipped doesn't make sense if Feng is indeed the rod.
I don't think he is. We know a one shot rod was used because of Kyan, and he targeted OA. It doesn't mean that it came from him, necessarily, but it does at least confirm that rods probably don't have unlimited uses. Feng doesn't know that we know, though, so I'm gonna keep that on the down low.
It also doesn't explain how it ended up on Sophia of all people
I think Feng is either a god, or he's trying to save his actual power.
I also think Zipped is lying about the target being Sophia. It never was her; I believe Feng when he says that he used it and that it only works on himself. It explains why none of us got a gold touched notification.
Zipped is trying to mislead the town. Why, remains to be seen. But the obvious answer is that he's helping us.
This doesn't explain how your absorb worked when it was targeted at someone other than Feng or Sophia, though.
I think Crimson's explanation makes sense though. Zipped targeted Sophia with 'Obey' but since Feng activated his LR, Zipped's action got redirected to Feng. So even the mesmerize got re-directed to Feng (meaning you made Gorlak target Feng).
I was thinking of voting for Sophia, is that a good idea? Can someone also explain why people are backing off Gorlak too? Think I'm missing something.
So Zipped might be some sort of tracker as he gets notified of night actions. If he is, his action got re-directed to Feng, and he received a list of all the actions that targetted Feng. Don't think Zipped is P any more.
i thought i had had it all when the spider-being suddenly appeared in the bear's stomach. i mean what kind of a god introduces themselves by saying "is spider :::". seriously. then came the deal from the fella with the crown; appear in a reality tv show about two competing soda brands and receive your body back in return. all right, i thought, I had not really heard anything that silly ever but i was not going to argue when the beary stomach acids had already melted my legs off. then they asked if i liked coke or pepsi. coke, i said, the one true cola drink.
they fucking gave me pepsi.
after flying through space-time what was not at all like in doctor who, we arrived at a paradise island. not bad i thought, no hungry bears in sight. then they told me that they were friends with the bear that had eaten me, my lover and my friends and they had devised a new plan. for fun. ha. according to them, leather was bad for the bear's digestion and he was more than happy to get rid of me. the is spider dropped me off into a small crowd of people, all wearing red. the strange god-pair laid out the rules of the show, and i was truly very, very happy when they told that everyone with a pepsi can had to die. coke had made the better deal.
the day was pretty boring, some weirdo who was into dr pepper died and good riddance that shit is foul.
but oh, oh. the best was yet to come. you see, bear diary, the way we were supposed to get rid of the opposition was by throwing our soda cans at them. it is common knowledge after all that pepsi kills coke and vice versa. the gods, in their infinite wisdom, had granted me a two rare cans of pepsi blue. it was said that this forbidden taste would absorb the very essence of any soda-drinker into it. the power i held, oh! i could become so much more!
during the night, i stalked my target in the dark alleys of the town and after a while, an opportunity struck me. my target stopped only a few feet in front of me. my grip was strong and my aim was true. the forbidden blue flew across the air, towards my oblivious target. it was then that the air was filled with light. a large boom, like an explosion, shattered my ears. i fell to the ground, in pain and I could see the can of pepsi blue fly towards the center of the town, defying all laws of physics. i came to my senses moments later. my target was gone and so was my pepsi blue. i stood up, my ears still ringing, and rushed towards the forum.
i wonder, once again, is deja vu real after all? in the middle of the plaza stood a gigantic shining pillar. beneath it, multiple crushed cans of soda, from vanilla coke to pepsi max. and among them, a can of pepsi blue. in front of the pillar, a single man.
no. a fox. a fox in who you could fit more man than i had ever taken. his words still ring in my ear.
"wow would you look at this. i saw it all. i was watching it all. what a beary strange thing that was." around his neck hung a round pendant. in it, a symbol of omega and a line beneath it.
Darryl must be telling the truth about his action, because why open yourself up to a counter claim? Zipped seems to be telling the truth too, because why would a God be a voyeur-role? (although...technically gods are all-seeing...)
