"The red death had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal -- the madness and the horror of blood." - "The Masque of the Red Death," Edgar Allen Poe



Contagion in the Palace is a variant of Assassin in the Palace which operates on a similar conceit: you have one king, one assassin, and a bunch of guards who are aware of the king's identity. After day one, however, the set-up changes slightly with the infection mechanic. Whoever is voted on day one by the majority to be lynched reveals their alignment and spreads their infection to another player. This continues until the assassin is infected, and their goal is to spread infection to the king. (This makes it pretty quick, since you only really need majority for one dayphase!)

I can start this game on Wednesday, October 2nd, Sunday, September 29th, around 7pm EST, and sign-ups will be open until then. If you're interested, sign-up below!

    Oooh Masque of the Read Death is one of my favourite short stories! Definitely count me in!
    You are startled as a lemon meringue pie bounces harmlessly off you after being thrown at you by Mysrai.

    It's only fair, I'll give this a shot!

    I'm in.

    So, after day 1 lynch, it is the dead guy killing someone else and this process repeating until the end of the game?

    Yep! Think of it as a linked bomb effect. The alignment of the infected person will always be revealed and you can still talk and try to influence the individual’s choices if you like.

    Sure, unless you need to boot me for someone who hasn't played.
    Any sufficiently advanced pun is indistinguishable from comedy.

    I didn’t expect this many sign ups to happen so quickly! If we hit a sixth person tomorrow, I can start the game at 7pm then instead. I know people generally have more time on weekends than weekdays.

    Based on how the previous game played out, 7-8 players might be better for the Lusternia forum.

    I decided to start with six since it’s the recommended balance and the format is slightly different. But if there’s enough interest, sure.

    If you need a 6th, I'll throw my hat in the ring.

    Excellent! I’ll keep the sign-ups open until 7pm in case anyone else wants to join, then I’ll send out roles and start the game.

    I'm sick with anticipation.

    Haha, I am so funny.
