(Know your vengeance gods: INVIDIA -- occurs in contexts where the sense of justice has been offended, and pain is experienced at the sight of undeserved wealth, prestige or authority.)


The people are restless. Does the King abuse his power?


The Guards have taken the King to a safe location. However, the Royal soothsayer has revealed to them that at least one of their number is secretly a worshipper of INVIDIA, goddess of vengeance/justice.


At first, the solution seems simple-- they will all refuse to speak. However, INVIDIA, goddess of vengeance (or justice) is on the assassin's side. If the guards do not lynch the assassin, INVIDIA will strike down the King through the power of her divine will, making the Assassin the winner.


So go, loyal Guards, find the traitor in your midst. Protect your King.


Four votes are required to lynch and they should be in bold. Do not post anything I say from PM's. Also no sending PM's about the game. I can't enforce this but if I find out your character dies immediately. You may send PMs to me but no other players.  This game has no night phase and no lynching not to vote, keep discussing until you are sure of who to vote. If you vote wrong, the Assassin wins.

Again no list of people playing.

The Palace Start

You need a list, because otherwise the assassin would stay silent and wait for everyone to bicker amongst themselves until only the King is left.

Or is that why you don't want a player list to be displayed? <-<

The Palace Start

You are obviously blind the list is right there.......(JK)

The Palace Start

So how do you all suppose we go about this?

The Palace Start

RANDOM LYNCHING!

The Palace Start

9 years ago

I vote for you!

Just kidding, but that's a horrible idea. It'll just make the assassin's job easier. The more guards we have the more likely it is that the king survives.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Awww well can we at least kill whoever doesn't talk?

Well anyway, the only people who can be the Assassin or the King in my opinion are Playa, Briar, Blob, Written, or me since we are have the most experience and are nearly guaranteed, to not just disappear and abandon our roles, unlike the newcomers. Though it is unlikely that me or Brair are anything important since we were last game, of course Cool could have thought of you guys thinking that and made us something important anyway. Don't want to get to much into that because then were just making a paranoid loops in our heads.

So going off that I say we kill whoever in that group acts suspicious. 

 

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Cool could've chosen who would be which role randomly though as well, so there's no guarantee any of the players listed have an important role. Remember though, in my game Romulus was the assassin two times in a row, so don't think one's past roles have a lot of impact on their current roles.

Still, I think what you said is spot on for the most part. You do seem to be quick to want to lynch us though, how am I supposed to be sure it isn't you who is the assassin?

The Palace Start

9 years ago

True, but I believe that I am right.

Well since I believe that one of us would most likely have the more important roles, I can rule out the newcomers and be free to be suspicious of only one of you, otherwise I guess your just going to have to wait and see.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Like I said, don't rule anyone out. It could be random or Cool could be trying to throw a surprise into the situation to throw us off.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

I have already explained why that is unlikely but I will keep a lookout for surprises.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

So, this time I'm not going to be quiet because that gets you lynched.

I really can't have any suspects as of yet, due to the fact that it's mostly only been Playa and Cov, so I guess we have to be patient.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

If nobody begins talking in the next 8 hours, I suppose we start lynching the silent ones. I'd rather not, but if it's the only way to get them all to start then we might as well.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

First I'd like to apologize to Cov for the whole assassinating thing. No hard feelings right? Second, I'd just like to assure you all that I have moved on from my evil assassining ways and am now an honest to God a decent, loyal, King loving guard... Honest! I swear! ... Please don't lynch me. cheeky

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Or you could even be the king to throw me *Cough* err... I mean the assassin off!

The Palace Start

9 years ago

That'd be awesome! I'd be an evil, badass Queen, like the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland! Now off with the assassin's head! ^_^

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Once the assassin's head is off, can we go bowling with it?

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Sorry for not having said anything, I've just been vigilantly looking out for the fiendish assassin... :P They shall never get their hands on the king! Never!

The Palace Start

9 years ago

ah, but then we must plot a plan to trap the assassin; one where even if he/she knows the plan, he/she will not be able to prevent him/herself from falling into the trap.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

But to suggest such an idea is possible, YOU MUST BE THE ASSASSIN!

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Hey, anything is possible. But no, I am certainly not the assassin you are looking for. I am just saying that, besides the assassin slipping up, we need a plan that will work even if the assassin knows about it. Sure, there are many plans one can enact to catch that assassin, but the plans I can think of have a high risk of others accusing me of being the assassin, such as you have just done.

Also, I also think my idea is difficult to enact, and probably impossible unless we guards can somehow miraculously convey to each other secret messages without the use of PMing

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Well, I got to tell you, the reason why I won the last game is that everybody wanted to prove to me that they knew who the King was because it'd mean that they wouldn't get lynched. I think that, the most important thing that us guards need to keep in mind, is that the guards win if the King is alive at the end, so even if the guard comes up with a plan that gets them lynched, they still win the game, and even if the assassin kills them, if the King's alive, they still win the game... So I say, go ahead and tell us your plan. Sure, we might lynch you, but if the King's still alive at the end of the game, you'll still win. cheeky

The Palace Start

Wait wait wait so you are "a" assassin

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Changed my mind. Let's not cut his head off, that's too painless. I vote that we turn him into a flea! A harmless little flea! And then, we put that flea in a box, and then we put that box inside of another box, and then we mail that box to ourselves, and when it arrives... WE SMASH IT WITH A HAMMA! cool

The Palace Start

But I hate fleas :o turn him or her into a harmless butterfly. No one evil will want to be something as good as a butterfly ><

Well if we're turning the assassin into something they don't like, we need to go all out! It can't just be something slimey and puny like a worm, it needs to be an abomination against nature, that the whole world is united in their hatred against. cheeky

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Out of all of us, CovElite and I are the only ones amongst us to have acted suspicious. Cov for potentially wanting to lynch those he saw as obstacles in his quest to kill the king. Me because I have accused someone in nearly all posts by me, albeit jokingly.

Still, I think a random lynching might be in order for this part of the game. So I vote to lynch: CovElite

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Ah, but then you would be doing the assassin's job by randomly lynching people

The Palace Start

9 years ago

As I said, I'm certainly in no position to say I'm definitely a guard and for you to accept it at face value. I may just be the assassin using mind tricks to avoid suspicion. I just think that we won't get anywhere otherwise, and might as well do so now and hope it leads us to the assassin's true identity.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Actually, I, for now, think you are not the assassin

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Nah, I don't think it's Cov, if only because he was the King last time, so it's unlikely he'll be the assassin this time.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Or is it just the perfect cover? Who's to say Cool didn't make him the assassin just to throw us off?

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Could have done, but again I'm still not convinced. Gonna wait a little longer and see people's reactions to stuff.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Probably the best course of action, but we need something to cause reactions correct?

Ah it kinda sucks where I am at. The past tow days the fog has been really bad. There was also a wetness to it that brought a chill but it wasn't raining more like misting. Feelslt like I have been living in a cloud.

The Palace Start

It's been oddly warm for December up in Ohio, but it's been like that for the past few years or so, so it might not be so odd anymore.

The Palace Start

'Round here, we're just getting some light rain and fog. Though it is extremely cold.

Well... there's really nothing to do unless you're arguing over who could be the assassin and nobody is proposing anything.

The Palace Start

So when do we start lynching the quiet ones?

If you saw, I edited that post like 4, deciding whether I wanted to lynch  you,  MBrock or playa. I settled on playa, because he seemed the most likely. Also he was right, a random would just make it easier for the assassin. With you, I am just not convinced enough yet that it is you.

I actually think it's Playa too, just based on who I think Cool's pick, so

Blast you Blob, I knew you would be a thorn in my side.

Oh well, it seems like I'll get lynched off no matter what I do and I can't even read the thread correctly for some reason as everyone's profile picture is pushed to the right, so I don't even really know all of what was said to make everyone realize I was the assassin.

I'm not sure as to who the king is though. I suspect CovElite, Blob, and Briar_Rose.

Cov because I was arguing with him that Cool could make anybody any role he wanted, whether they're competent or not (Like I made Romulus in the first game, even though he did prove to be quite competent) and he didn't raise any suspicion.

I also suspect Briar_Rose because as soon as Blob posted "Queen Briar" suspicion seems to have shifted from him. If Briar really is the King (Queen?) the guards should've continued the lynch on Blob so it would make him look like he was lying to save his skin.

Then again though, could it be that Briar originally voted for Blob knowing he was the King to lure out the assassin, and the other guards followed suit to further lure me out?  If this is true, I applaud you guards. I fell right for your trap. Either way, there are too many possible situations so it will have to be more of a gut instinct.

In the end though, SUICIDE ATTACK: BRIAR_ROSE

(OOC: I really wanted to kill Blob though.)

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Well game over, already...

The Palace Start

9 years ago

So... endgame post possibly?

Edit: Oh yeah, I messaged Cov after my suicide attack and it turns out Briar was the King. Fuck you Bob, fuck you for ruining the fun you selfish piece of shit. I'm going to find you, and I'm going to burn down your house. Do you read me? Huh? Do you punk? All the things you own, every single last one of your possessions burned in a fiery inferno the likes this world has never seen before. Now do you get it? You get it now Bob? Do you? Does this one mere prediction of all of the horrible things I'm going to do to you in your life finally make you grasp why not to give up the King's identity?

Naw it's cool dawg, we straight.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Yeah I will do it. Also Blob don't bother signing up for the next game I do because I won't accept you. You have given up the kings identity 2 games now. Figure out how to play and get back to me.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Didn't Bob give up the king last game too?

What a terrible guard lol.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

I didnt give up the kings identity.Playa said it himself that he just went with his gut.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

You're part right.

He said you gave up the identity of the King, but then went on to say it might have been a trap, so in the end he went with his gut instinct - which was that you really did give up the king and that it wasn't a trap.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

YOU SAID WHO THE KING WAS IN THE THREAD! How can you rephrase that in any way to say you didn't reveal the king's identity?

The Palace Start

9 years ago

I meant that as a joke and i thought you would see it as too obvious.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

I did at first, but that's still something you don't do. The guards were the ones who gave it away though.  You all changed votes pretty randomly in my opinion.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

So it was a team effort.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

Dammit! Should've killed blob first. Well done Playa! ^_^

Is really pointless to give up who the King is just to avoid getting lynched though. Guards win even if they do get lynched, so long as the King's alive at the end.

The Palace Start

9 years ago

They all attempted to stop a guard from being lynched, you gave away the identity of the King.
