Scioly Assassination 72: Pandora's Box

Post by Assassinator » April 25th, 2011, 11:06 am

The Box has been opened. I have been released. The onslaught has begun. You shall pay for this mistake with your lives. The only way to end this plague is to find the Hope left in the box and uncover my true identity.


1. The police officers will be the next five people who send correct answers to the clue. 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. There will be no "informants", but civilians may post

3. 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.

4. Police officers may die, but a police officer may protect another police officer.

5. Once a police officer has made three incorrect accusations, he may not accuse or protect anyone.

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

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

8. The assassin is now not required to post accounts of his kills.

9. When accusing someone of being Assasinator you must use the following template "I accuse (place name here) because (give reason here)." If you don't use this template when accusing the accusation won't count.

10. Once "killed" a user may not make any statements about the identity of the Assasinator.

11. Non officers or informants may post.

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

13. If the assassinator does not reply in 8 days after all protects are made, each officer gets a free accusation. However that accusation must be made next time the user posts and cannot be stored as an extra one to use later.

14. Each officer begins with one accusation. You will earn accusations as you protect correctly

15. The Assassinator wins after 15 incorrect accusations have been made, but the number needed to win goes down by one with each kill

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

17. If officers have any accusations available, at least two accusations must be made per week. If this quota is not fulfilled, the number of accusations needed to win will decrease.

18. The Assassinator will provide at least one identity clue per week.

And without further ado, your entry clue:



.-

U+0044

Hint: You all, very soon

You will have only TWO opportunities to answer this clue, so make sure you get it right!

In!

I'm interested to see how long this round lasts, now that I'm an officer again. :P

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I cant see the picture!

Also this is a strange mix of the last few games. Also, I don't like rule 17.

If you can't see the symbols, try quoting the post to read it in plain text.

I agree. 17 is objectionable. You're essentially assuring a couple weeks (6 accusations) of relatively random guessing because it is unlikely that the first couple identity clues will be worth all that much.

Rule 17 should not be that game-changing, as in the last few games many early accusations have been made anyway. Also, several concessions were put into place as a compromise: you now have 48 hours for each clue, you are no longer required to have reasonable reasons for your protects, and I am guaranteeing you one identity clue per week. The rule was put into place simply to put a timer on the game, making sure it doesn't last too long and become boring.
However, because I am a benevolent Assassinator, I will be changing the rule to two accusations per week.

Tbh, one of the few reasons I accused fm so early last game was because I didn't want it to get into double-digit pages... if we hadn't been on such a streak, I would've held on to it...

Sorry fm :P
