So far, no one has made the effort to post these connections yet, so I guess I'll bring it up.
From the night 1 scene, we get a bunch fairly vague statements about a ton of various things. BUT, we do get over very clear statement about the death scene:
Night 1 Scene wrote:the former masters and creators of the Shoggoth ... their cilia extend and search for their target, and in a blinding speed they fly through the air.
That first bold, I will come back to later, but the second bold does indeed lend itself to a lyncher/lynchee mechanic present in the game. But who is the lyncher and who is the lyncher's target? Well, from the first bold we get "former masters and creators of the Shoggoth." Well with a little wiki magic...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/shoggoth wrote:The shoggoths were created by the Elder Things. Being amorphous, they could take on any shape needed, making them very versatile within their aquatic environment. Though able to "understand" the Elder Things' language, they had no real consciousness and were controlled through hypnotic suggestion.
The Elder Things are described by the wiki as being "vegetable-like in shape... they had a five-lobed brain... The technology that the Elder Things possessed was not described at length, but was described as being extremely advanced... The Elder Things are known to have warred against the star-spawn of Cthulhu, the Great Race of Yith, and the Mi-go."
So, we now know of at least two new parties: The Elder Things (Possible lyncher) and their "target." Although the wiki doesn't explicitly state who their target might be, it does have that nice passage about who they warred against: The star-spawn of Cthulhu, the Great Race of Yith, and the Mi-go, and one of these could indeed be the target. Which means we know we have at least four parties: humans/town
, the Shoggoth
(who may/may not be allied with the Elder Things), the Elder Things, and the target of the elder things. And we know that the elder things are the ones who killed soundman.
Oh, and Vodean? Were you attempting to revive soundman?
