Scioly Assassination 79: Elementary My Dear Watson

Postby Assassinator » August 12th, 2011, 8:04 pm

My Dear Holmes,

I hope this letter finds you well. I have been watching your career with some interest over the years and have decided that now is the time to put you to the ultimate test. There is about to be a killing spree in London and you are the only one that has any hope of stopping me. Just know that if you fail chaos will reign and London will never find peace.

So round up the Irregulars and catch me if you can.

Sincerely,

The Assassinator

The Rules:

1. The Irregulars will be the next five people who post. Put in a bit of thought before posting. If you have not been around for awhile, it is less likely that you will be able to identify me.

2. People will die. However, there are some exceptions. I will not kill administrators or moderators. In return, I ask that they not reveal my identity.

3. Members of the Irregulars may die, but they can protect themselves.

4. Once an irregular has made three incorrect accusations, he may not accuse or protect anyone.

5. The assassin will provide clues that plainly point to his next victim, and occasionally to himself.

6. The assassin will continue to post with his true account, and may provide hints there.

7. Each clue will last 48 hours, after which the Assassinator may kill.

8. The assassin will write entertaining and mildly gruesome accounts of his kills.

9. The Assassinator reserves the right to add to these rules as he deems necessary.

With that, any prospective Irregulars may post below. But only if you are up to the challenge.
Killed: 1
Clues given: 4
Accusations: amk578 - 2, hmmm - 1, dxu46 - 1, sciolyperson1 - 0
Next clue: 2:26am GMT, Tuesday, August 20th

In. So in. I'll try not to die this time...
Also, why is this an old version of the rules? It's strangely reminiscent of the earliest games. Few rules, no entry clue...yeah.

EDIT: Sassy, you need to change your sig before you post. It's disturbing to see yourself as dead when you're trying for an officer spot.

One post too late for me. I wonder what the clues will be like?

Ah, the old rules...I approve. I miss the days of continuously lurking, waiting for the first post, and scrambling for a spot.

Anyways, put me down for a spot if anyone drops out Tuesday or later (I'll be on vacation til then).

Edit: This went up whilst I was at dinner? Fascinating.

Well that was fast, straight from accusation to a new game, not even a confirmation of identity

Sigh...missed it again...and on one I could've been in on easily, too.

I loved the adventures of shelock holmes...I wonder if the clues will be related.

quadratic, look closely at what I said:

That means that it's not exactly the old version, just very much like the old version.

I think quadratic is more likely. Have you seen the grammatical errors in the first post? "I hope this letter finds you well." Honestly? And the lack of punctuation where it needs to be...I think quadratic is more likely than Random or fm. I know Random pretended to have horrible grammar once, but that was way over the top. It wasn't as subtle as this is, like this person honestly doesn't know they made grammatical errors.
