It seemed a simple enough task. The king must live at all costs. When a note appeared on the palace gates, pinned by a dagger, wet with some kind of animal blood, the ministers were worried. Their only saving grace was that the king was, by all accounts, a lonely and secluded person. No one knew what he looked like or had spent much time with him. So, when his life was threatened by the note, the possibility of his death was ridiculous. Who could get close enough to the king to even attempt such a deed?

It wasn't long before the plan was hatched. They would dress the king in plain clothes and surround him by the most trusted warriors from across the land. All men would be dressed identically. Though the warriors would know who they were meant to protect, they would be strangers to each other, so that a knowing glance or familiar tone would not betray anyone's identity. Their mission was simple. Protect the king at all costs, even if it meant their lives.

Unfortunately, it was not long before another note, identical in handwriting to the first, appeared in the inner chambers of the palace. The assassin had somehow infiltrated this elite group of warriors. He must be caught and brought to justice before he can strike.


Alive:

Setup.

There are 7 guards, 1 king and 1 assassin. The assassin wins if the king is eliminated, whether or not the assassin still lives. The king and the guards win if the assassin is eliminated and the king still lives. The guards know the identity of the king, but not each other. The king and the assassin have no further information. Please note that this is a nightless setup.

N.B.: No player may fake a suicide attack in any form. Doing so will result in an instant modkill.

N.B.: No player may make a real or fake claim about the identity of the king, or speculate about the king's identity. This will also result in a modkill.

Role PMs

Guard wrote:You are a guard. Your job is to protect the king, who is _______. Unfortunately, your job is made much harder by the fact that there is an assassin in the palace. You will win once the assassin is eliminated and the king still lives.


King wrote:You are the king. It’s good to be the king. Unfortunately, you have no information other than that. Try to stay inconspicuous, because there’s an assassin in the palace. You win once the assassin is eliminated and you still live.


Assassin wrote:You are the assassin. Your job is to kill the king. There are two ways that you can kill. You can make a suicide attack in the thread at any time by posting Suicide Attack: Target. This attack will eliminate you from the game. Also, if you are lynched, you immediately get to kill one target. You win the game once the king is dead, even if you are no longer alive.

Rules (Stolen and modified from somestrangeflea, believe it or not.)

General

* If you disagree with something the mod has done, or have a question about the game, feel free to PM.
* Do not quote your role PM to prove your innocence. Paraphrasing is acceptable, and if you are uncertain as to what is acceptable, PM me to check. Violators will be modkilled.
* In order to lynch a player, that player must receive a majority of the possible votes. Votes are made in the format Vote: Playername (in bold). Votes that are not in this format will not count.
* Please Unvote (also in bold) before voting a different player. This rule will not be enforced as strictly as the previous one, but it helps me count, so please!
* Do not discuss this game outside this thread. Period. Even if you are dead.
* If you're dead, you're dead, and since the dead aren't alive, you're dead. Stop posting. I will not complain about a single "Bah!" post that contains no game content, but I would prefer you didn't say anything at all.
* If you have moderating powers in this forum, do not edit or delete the posts of either yourself or another player. If you are caught, you will be modkilled.
* Please avoid using too many fancy text tags. If you start using colors or tiny text or using bold for something other than voting or messages to the moderator, then you may be asked to stop.
* Have fun! Don't take the game personally, and don't flame other players.

Day and Twilight

* During the Day phase, players will discuss and vote until a player has been lynched.
* Once the vote required to reach a majority has been cast, that person is dead. Unvoting will not undo the lynch.
* Please note that this is a nightless setup.
* There is a Twilight Phase. Players are still allowed to discuss, but votes will be ignored. The Twilight phase has an indeterminate length of time, as it is simply the length of time between the actual lynching vote, and the death scene. Please note that any votes, lynches, self-revelations and other shenanigans in Twilight are NOT OFFICIAL UNLESS THEY ARE CONFIRMED BY THE MOD.

Inactivity, Prods and Deadlines

* Lurking is not allowed as a strategy in this game, as it is highly likely to slow the game down to a halt. Any player who becomes inactive will be prodded after one week, and will be replaced if there are no posts after two weeks of inactivity.
* If the thread activity falls too low, a deadline will be set.

Please read the above rules carefully, as a number of factors vary depending on the size and type of the game being played.

Update.

I am adding a rule to this game.

* No player may fake a suicide attack in any form. Doing so will result in an instant modkill.

I will edit this into the rules above, but wanted to point this out, as it wasn't there before.

It is now Day 1. It will take five votes to lynch.

Also, I am not going to require it, but I will request that those of you without avatars get them. It makes it easier for me to quickly scan the thread to see who has posted recently (for prods) and it makes things a little easier for vote counts as well.
