"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." - "Contagion in the Palace
The Masque of the Red Death," Edgar Allen Poe
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!)
