Thread: Assassin in the Palace Game Thread

  1. #1

    Default Assassin in the Palace Game Thread

    Assassin in the Palace is a variant of Mafia that works backwards from the norm. In this version, the town actually knows more than the mafia does. There are only three roles: The King, his Guards, and the Assassin. One person is the King, one person is the Assassin and everyone else is a Guard.

    The way this works is that all the Guards know who the King is, but neither the King nor the Assassin knows who anyone else is. The Assassin has a one shot ability he can use at any time to kill someone. He may only use it once during the ENTIRE course of the game, and it actually comes before the lynch each night. If the Assassin kills the King, he wins. If the King and the Guards kill the Assassin before he's able to kill the King, the kingdom is saved and the town wins.

    The biggest rule is that no one under ANY circumstances is allowed to communicate outside of the game thread. Also, no one wants to say who the King is or even hint at it because even if lynched, the Assassin gets his kill shot in. Even if he dies, as long as he kills the King he wins.


    The rules for this game:

    1. --- NO PMING OR OUTSIDE COMMUNICATION

    2. --- Mafia is divided into rounds, or ‘days.’ Each round lasts for 24 hours and will begin/end at 10:00 EST. The KP should come at ROUGHLY 11:00 EST. The reason I say roughly is because I will have detailed KP's to help further the story. And yes, for those of you who don't care, there will be a summary at the bottom.

    3. --- In that amount of time, the players of the game decide who as a group they want to Lynch by voting. To vote, you must state that it is a vote, and make the vote Bold. The player who receives the most votes will be killed at the end of that day, unless he is saved. Players may NOT vote No Lynch. . If lynched, the Assassin has 24 hours to decide who to kill.

    4. ---If you wish to show suspicion for someone, but do not want to vote for them, use the same format as if you were to vote, but instead, call it a FoS (Finger of Suspicion.) I will keep track of all FoS and votes. I will post a vote count at 10:00 EST so I can be corrected if wrong.

    5. ---Betraying your group, or otherwise not "playing to win" (such as voting for yourselves) is taboo. If I catch you doing so, you will be permanently blacklisted from my games, no exceptions. Even if things seem hopeless, or you dislike your teammates, keep trying; if you give up (or worse, betray your team), you ruin the fun for everyone.

    6. ---The dead may not talk ever. Not even one post after they are dead or I will ask a mod to delete it. The. Dead. May. Not. Talk.

    7.--- I am omnipotent. I can do whatever I want. So suck it.

    I always wanted to run a game of assassins in the palace where there is no assassin. And like everybody is just killing each other off for no reason.

    That's actually a hilarious idea.

    Why does everyone TELL ME their hilarious ideas instead of just springing them on me? It's so upsetting. Almost as upsetting as SC being a meanie butt.

    Why does a tie make more sense?
    If ties are solved randomly, and the assassin cannot send a kill after being killed, then if the assassin is one of the potential lynch victims (which is likely given that there are several), then the assassin must send in a kill with virtually no information and many potential targets, or risk being lynched without using their kill. It does have many flaws as a plan though.

    Except the assassin only gets one lynch in this game. Usually sent after they are dead.

    If they can send their kill after they have been lynched, it's worse than useless.

    The point is to force them into using their kill as early as possible. If the assassin were lynched day 1, they would have to guess from every possible player with no information.

    Isn't it useless though (unless ties result in all tied players being lynched).

    Then a tie has no advantage over simply lynching a random person without the tie?

    True as long as the assassin has no idea at all who the king is. And the odds are on town side for random lynches (confirm someone?) I don't think I've payed this before tbh.

    The trick is to see who is the one who's most oblivious in voting. He or she votes carefully but doesn't draw much attention to them selves. The assassin will usually vote first and at the end when the KP is about to come they unvote because they are not sure ... It's pretty easy to find who's the assail since day 1 KP is over and now it is pretty obvious who the king is ... it all depends on how smart the assassin is.

    False.

    From our standpoint, all players except the king have an equal chance of being the assassin. As such, if there are multiple players who might be lynched, then there is a better chance that at least one of them is the assassin. And if the assassin is tied for up for lynch, then he / she has to make a decision about whether or not to use his/her kill that day thus losing the game early since their chance of picking king randomly is very slim.

    I think you're misunderstanding. The assassin doesn't get to first know that they lost the dice roll THEN pick to use their ability; they have to make the decision before they know who loses the random. If they do decide to use it, then their kill will still go through even if they lose the random.

    Since I don't believe that both you and Rok are this silly, I must vote for one of you.

    Vote: Rokchik
