It has been three generations since the secret plan to hide the king from an unknown assassin who entered the land. The plan had failed and the assassin was the sole survivor of the ordeal. Hope was not lost. The king had an heir, who came of age and had another heir. Soon the monarchy was strong.

It was agreed that the guards were good men and though they failed to protect the king, their lineage was strong. Their great-grandchildren would make able guards as well. But the prophecy was disturbing. It seems the assassin also passed along his seed to succeeding generations. The scholars debated for days whether the propensity for regicide is something learned or something inherent at birth.

In the end, the original plan was followed. If the king could be secreted away and surrounded by guards, all masked, then the assassin would not know who to target. The plan may not have worked last time, but the plan itself was sound. Once again, the kingdom will experience the bloodiest week in history.

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.

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.

I confirm I have received my role.

Odd, we were named after our grandparents. At least one had the nerve to have a girl and name her Holy. :P

Loved the flavor, Rishi good stuff.

Vote Dahill Korlash is obvobv not the assassin, I don't believe he'd lie to me when he said he'd kill poker in his 1st post.
