Okay, so this is partially inspired by the mafia thread, but in school we always played a game called assassin where you'd join up and go about your day and try to find a person you were assigned to assassinate. Upon assassinating them they'd tell you their assignment and you were supposed to get that person until one person was left standing.

I was thinking we could create a forum version of this. We'd have people sign up and I could assign assassinations, and the way you'd get them is by being right above or right below them in a forum post. You'd kind of have to try and maneuver yourself in a discussion to get the person, it seemed kind of fun to me atleast. Once you get right above or right below you would tell them to check their PM and tell them they'd been assassinated.

edit: at ten people we'll set up a game. list of players is here.

I wouldn't PM them. I'd just post something like "Assassinated bitch!" in the middle of a thread.

I mean that would work too, but they need to send you their info on who they were supposed to kill.

Nice, and also, you guys should atleast try to contribute to other conversations so it's not just continuous spamming. I don't want any of us to get into trouble.

it seems like a cool idea, but i don't see it working, just because it's the internet, you send a message instantly, it's really a matter of who does it the fastest. and if you do it by posting in a thread, you'd have similar problems, such as someone and they will quickly be jumped on as soon as they post, because you can search their posts and find them right away. if you can come up with a practical way to do this, i'd be down.

It'd be more fun with more people really, so we should get 10-14 in here maybe? and then we could set something up.

It's definitely a cool concept. Kinda like a real time Assassins Creed online.

But we'd need a beta before the whole game is established, otherwise we'll run into a wall of problems

Well that's the game in person, it's always about who does it the fastest, and someone may post between you and your target. I mean you're hunting this person in threads. A dead thread would kind of leave you wide open, but that's kinda the risk and fun of it.

Yeah, we can play on here, as like a test run, we'll just need a few more people.

but in real life, it's not that fast, you still have to track the person down, where here it's over in like 2 minutes. maybe if you have to be the post after them, without being ninja'd, like you have to post right on the next post normally, without indicating that you killed them, and then you send a PM linking the thread and the two posts to them, if that makes sense?

In my school, we had "Shank"

Basically just involved one of us running full speed at the other and screaming "Shank" as we punched them in the back.

Well, I mean that's kind of part of the hunt, it's meant to last like an hour or two. I don't see the problem, like in a normal thread with people having a discussion it'd be hard to guess that you're gonna be right below them. The only thing I can think of would be a problem with dead threads. Maybe not make it count if the thread is dead, but then the assassin would have revealed himself. I mean it won't be over in two minutes, you'll be able to see if they were the last poster from the forum but it will be more effort than it's worth to dig too deep into it.

Before the game we could also establish safe threads, or just make this one safe, maybe the hugging thread is safe too just because it'd be kind of incensitive to kill someone in there.

Also just a thought, if the kills become to easy we could make it that you need to get both above and below one of their posts to assassinate them.

That could work, but then it may get boring as people may just avoid posting below other people in this thread, but it could very well be a solution if that turns out to be a problem.

One more guys, someone? Also, to those playing, it kinda goes without saying you can't just lurk, if I have to, I'll make it a rule where you'll have to prove you posted at least once every half hour or hour, I'm not going to do this if I don't have to, but it would be quite unfair if no one posted.

As long as this ends within 5 hours I'll be good for this. I'm going to sleep at 3:30ish, so this will have to be over before then.

Wait this game is supposed to be over tonight? I'm about to log as I have school tomorrow...
#31
Shit. I'm not going to be able to play. I just realized this is the kind of thing that will get over fast. . I'm going to bed here pretty soon then I won't be back online until tomorrow evening around this time probably.

I was planning to do it tonight, it can start tonight and the post every hour thing won't be in effect, I just don't want to see someone using the tactic of not posting. How about if you don't post something for a whole day or something? I don't know, as of right now though there are no rules like that.

You'll be good, I'm probably overestimating how fast I want it to go, it will probably be more fun if people kind of forget that they were playing this and get assassinated, or see their target or something.

Yeah, I'd say draw this out for a bit. I need to go to bed soon as well.
#35
So are we good for a longer time cap? That seems like the best choice. And as you said earlier, would could make it a rule that you need to have previously posted in a thread to assassinate somebody. That should work well and prevent lurking strategies.

Alright, I sent out assignments. If you get someone, pm me or post it in here, I don't think you having gotten anyone really compromises you unless the person you got was compromised, and if you get someone and they won't send your next target, I can give it to you.
