The Great Twist


Assassin in the Palace is a nightless mafia.

There is one King, one Assassin, and the remainder of the players are Guards who are all told the identity of the King.

The Assassin has one kill that they can use at any time during the game, even after being lynched. The Assassin's goal is to identify the King so that they can use this kill against him. If the Assassin successfully kills the King, then the Assassin wins, otherwise the King and Guards win. The Assassin doesn't need to survive to win.

This setup differs from normal mafia in that the "town" has more information than the "mafia" does. Every Guard that is lynched narrows the number of targets the Assassin must consider, so the challenge for the Guards is to find out who the Assassin is as quickly as possible without giving away the identity of the King.

The game ends when the Assassin chooses a target to kill. Again, he may even choose a target to kill after his death. In fact, there's almost no reason not to choose a target until after his own death.

Important!! You may not post after the hammer until I announce that lynched player's role. A single player may post the :redhammer: emoticon so it's clear someone was hammered.

Other than the special rules, normal Mafia rules apply. No post editing, no toxx, etc etc etc.

This game can have any amount of players, but let's go ahead and aim for at least 9 and no more than 15.

Well think of it this way! If I knew who the king was, my interactions would give it away. This way, I can just look for scummy behavior in peace and only read my PM if I have to hammer.

It even works out if I'm the King or Assassin because I wouldn't want to tip my hand then, either.

Rash decisions are the best decisions though, sorry PM.
