Pokecommunity Assassin

Welcome to The Pokecommunity's first ever game of Assassin, brought to you by The Brotherhood (Bloodex, PEDRO12).

Assassination is an art form. It is something that requires stealth. It requires espionage. And it requires commitment. If you feel like you have these traits, then consider entering this competition of sorts. If you're not sure, but want to have a little fun, enter as well. The Brotherhood is looking for Pokecommunity's first assassin, and we have devised this little competition to find this man or woman of killer instinct. Here is how this competition will work.

Assassin Registration Form:
Name: ________________________
Timezone in UTC (click here if you need assistance):

The Rules:
  • First and foremost, anyone who wishes to enter the competition must fill out the form above with his or her name and timezone and PM it to all members of The Brotherhood. For example, if User X who lived in New York wanted to play, his form would look like this:
    Name: User X
    Timezone: UTC -4

    DO NOT post your entry in this thread, as people will know to watch out for you, and put you in an immediate disadvantage. You have until April 6th at 8:00 PM EST (or 8:00 UTC -4) to register. A good assassin knows to show up.
  • Each contestant MUST allow VMs and PMs to their profile to be toggled to "Public" as the Brotherhood must be able to make contact. A good assassin can communicate with their masters.
  • Each assassin will be randomly assigned a target via PM, and they must kill that target. That is his or her primary objective. At the end of everyday (the day will end at 8:00 PM), each assassin will be assigned a brand new target. An assassin can only have one target at any given time. A good assassin can keep track of his assigned target.
  • The only acceptable kill method is as follows:
    To kill someone, you MUST post immediately after them in a thread (any thread) and say: DIE ____ where the underscore is the username of your target. Be wary that the post MUST also stay on topic. If someone says DIE ___ and doesn't answer the the thread also, it becomes a failed assassination, and will also count as SPAM and not reading the rules. Two strikes and the you will automatically die by default.

    It is also acceptable to use the same method of killing (posting DIE ____) in blogs and VMs as well. For the former, attempt to stay on topic of the blog, even if blog rules are more lax. And yes, the actual blog entry itself counts as a post. For VMs, be creative, as long as the kill phrase is present above your target's VM on any given profile.

    A good assassin knows how to kill his target.

  • The target does have a chance to save him or herself, but only has 5 minutes from the kill attempt to do so. The following is how they can prevent dying:
    The target can save themselves by going to their assassin's profile and VMing them the following image:

    Simply copy and paste [img][/img] on your killer's profile within 5 minutes of his attempt to kill you and you survive... for the meanwhile.

    A good assassin is always aware that he is in danger.

  • If you successfully manage to kill a target, you must do the following:
    Take the URL link of the post that killed your target and save it. In order to get the link, go to the post and click on the post #. It will appear in the corner (i.e. #34). At the end of the day, you must PM these links to The Brotherhood to confirm your kills. Feel free to PM the kills as they happen throughout the day. Saving the links just makes it easier for us to be organized. If you killed via blog or VM, simply link the page to us.

    Secondly, PM the person that you just killed and ask for their target. Their target become your NEW target. You can attempt to kill him as soon as you find out.

    A good assassin is honorable in the face of defeat.

  • If you failed to kill your target/If you managed to save yourself, abide by the following:
    The target is untouchable until the top of the next hour. That means that if an assassin tried to kill their target at 5:34PM and the target managed to save himself, the assassin cannot attempt to kill his target until it is 6:00PM. From then on, the target is vulnerable again, unless they manage to save themselves again. And yes, if the failed kill attempt happens at 5:59PM, the target is immediately vulnerable again.

    A good assassin knows when to strike.

  • The day will end at 8:00 PM EST. No more killing can occur until the targets have been reassigned. Please have all kills reported to The Brotherhood by 8:30 PM EST so we can assign the new as soon as possible and also post up the Dead List. Keep in mind, you can only try to kill your target for the day. You cannot try to kill your target from the day before.
  • Keep in mind that we are looking for the best assassin. If you fail to kill anyone in 3 days, you will automatically be killed off by The Brotherhood.
  • A good assassin is brave and not scared of dying. If you fail to post anything in the forums in 3 days, you will be killed off by The Brotherhood.

I'm well aware that the rules seem daunting, but please, read them. Aside from your fingers, the rules are your key way to stay alive for this. Also, keep this in mind: the person with the most kills per day will get a nice gift that will aid them in their hunt to become Pokecommunity's next top assassin.

This game might sound serious (it is to The Brotherhood!) but make sure you have fun. Keep in mind, the winner and runner-up will get prizes, and everyone who competes might get something nice as well.

So that's it folks. Let the games begin. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post in this thread.

The battle has begun.

The Brotherhood wishes you the best of luck.

Important clarification on a rule:
  • There's been some confusion with what posts you are able to use to kill your target. Posts made after April 6th at 8:00 PM EST (the day the competition started) are the ones that are eligible. However, this is not a day to day thing, where posts made on a particular day are only good for that day. The idea is that the longer you survive, the more opportunities there are to kill you. For example, if you made a post on April 6th at 9:00 PM and are alive on April 13th, you're target is able to use that April 6th post to kill you, provided no one has posted after you. The longer you're in this game, the more cautious you will have to be. If you have any confusion about this, PM the Brotherhood immediately.
  • Earlier, a mass PM was sent out explaining the above bullet. Please note that not everyone in that mass PM was playing. We included people who weren't playing to achieve two things: 1)send the message out as rapidly as possible while at the same time 2)preventing as much knowledge as to who was playing from being made evident.

Final Four Free For All
The four of you have made it this far in the competition. You all have a spectacular array of kills under your belt, and you all are oh so close to winning. But only one may have the title of Pokecommunity's Assassin. This is the Final Four Free For All. Pedro and I wish you the best of luck. And the final four are:

Regeneration (2 kills)

雷影 イチロ (Raikage Ichiro; 6 kills)

Jake♫ (1 kill)

Retro Bug (2 kills)

Rest In Peace

They fought valiantly. And they died valiantly. May our little assassins rest in peace in the otherworld.

Day One
These 7 brave assassins put their lives on the line, and sadly it cost them. However, due to the absence of a clear MVP for the day, two of these assassins managed to cheat death and are still in the game! Be wary fellow assassins! For now, may these assassins rest in peace.
  • DavidtheDeadPhilosopher
  • -DeepImpact-
  • Regeneration
  • Pachy
  • Retro Bug
  • SNOR(es)LAX
  • Somniac

Day Two
These three assassin's made it to the second day, but ultimately met their fate. Kudos to them for surviving the initial blood bath/being revived! Due to the absence of an MVP yet again, one dead assassin (from either today or day one) will be randomly selected to be revived!
  • SNOR(es)LAX (second death)
  • Retro Bug (second death)
  • BinaryPeaches

Day Three
These three warriors were killed off by one person, today's MVP. They tried their hardest, but unfortunately Day Three's MVP decided to go Super Sayian. May these three assassin rest in peace in the other world. Props for making it to Day Three!
  • synerjee
  • ThatWhiteKid
  • JNathan

    Day Three MVP: 雷影 イチロ (Perks: Wild Card Kill, Healing Wish)

Day Four
They made it four days into the competition, and almost made it into the top five. Sadly, they fell short, but they made an impact. RIP little assassins.
  • hinkage
  • Element0

Day Five
Our one death today proved to be a clever, sly, and slick little assassin, but was ultimately caught in the end. May you rest in peace.
  • LilJz1234

Day Six
Hey look at that. No one died!

Day Seven
We are saddened to report the loss of two members, one who had to withdraw due to prior engagements. Regeneration and 雷影 イチロ, you two will be missed.
  • Regeneration
  • 雷影 イチロ

I also wanted to stress that we would much appreciate it if you could PM your Assassin Registration Form to all members of the Brotherhood, we want to have similar contestant lists up until the point where we distribute everyone into the competition.


Honest April 2nd, 2013 11:22 AM

The applications are pouring in at a steady rate, and all progress so far has been good. We're still accepting people who want to play, so by all means, please join. And tell your friends!

That being said, this thread need not be occupied by only Pedro and I. People who are and are not playing can by all means simply discuss the competition and anything related to the games. Possibly strategies, sneaky tactics, or even just comment about the games itself. Keep in mind that posting doesn't automatically make you a contestant in our eyes nor anyone elses! Assassins may be sneaky, but they know how to have fun. =D

Somniac April 2nd, 2013 4:16 PM

Looks interesting to say the least.

Well even if I don't sign up now atleast I know what will be happening when people randomly start saying 'DIE SOMNIAC' after all my posts.


Edit: I'll make some emblems for you guys to use once you reach 5pages/3months if you promise not to send assassins after me.

Honest April 2nd, 2013 4:23 PM

Three months? Don't think the competition's going to last that long. But thanks for offering to make emblems! <3

Edit: Assassins never keep their promises, sorry. They lie. :c

I had a derp, it's only clubs which have to be around for 3 months before getting emblem abilities. <3

Ash April 2nd, 2013 7:07 PM

I ... didn't even know that about clubs wow.

Excited to see the outcome of this game. Since it kinda of had more to do with just Other Trivia and such. /popcorn.gifs Sadly, I cannot offer to make an emblem because lack of a computer (and I have to admit that I'm not very .. quick in making emblems aha...) but yeah.

Woof! Emblem artisan right here!

Also, can people proxy assassinate each other? :p jk.

Honest April 3rd, 2013 5:09 PM

Please don't proxy kill each other. :c

You're more than welcome to lie about playing, though, obviously. Or you can be gutsy and stupid and publicize the fact that you're playing. Or you can throw everyone off and pretend to be playing when you're really not. =D

I find that concept hilarious.

Honest April 4th, 2013 4:43 PM

It's been done! Perhaps you can find a person to assist you in scheming something like that. You never know. Haha. Anyways, guys. There are two days left to register.

That is


Please, please, please. To make this the best first game ever, sign up if you have not already, because in all honesty, the more people there are, the more insane this game becomes. Please your Brotherhood, and you will be rewarded!

Honest April 5th, 2013 2:35 PM

There is just over 24 hours to register for the competition! I've gotten a few PMs in the last few hours. If you wish to play, make sure you PM The Brotherhood.

It has almost begun... [/ominous music in background]

Mr Cat Dog April 6th, 2013 11:01 AM

I'm unfortunately too busy to play this properly (if I signed up, I'd definitely be the first one assassinated!) but I look forward to how this all turns out! :D

Honest April 6th, 2013 11:59 AM

Alright folks, there are four hours left to register for this. If you have any doubts or have delayed your entry, it is crucial that we get your registration form. Otherwise, you will have to watch from the sidelines.

Anyhow, the following is for the people who are playing: Around 8:00 PM EST, everyone will receive a PM from either Pedro or myself. The PM will consist of your target's username, whom you must kill. As soon as you receive the PM, you may begin killing. Keep in mind to follow the rules in the first post. It's a good idea to know what you're doing after all. I shall be back here in exactly 4 hours to begin the competition.

Honest April 6th, 2013 4:02 PM


Assassins! In the next few minutes, you will receive a PM with your target! As soon as you do, the games are on. If an assassin did not receive a PM by this time, PM me IMMEDIATELY.

Remember, only posts, VMs, and blog comments made after this time are eligible for killing. You have 24 hours to assassinate your target.

Good luck, and may the best assassin win.

Somniac April 7th, 2013 12:34 AM

Bah I was actually going to signup when I got home today as well, gah. Sorry Bloodex!

JayD April 7th, 2013 7:46 AM

First round ends at 8:00 PM EST today. Happy hunting~

Honest April 7th, 2013 7:52 AM

Oh, that's awkward. :I

And what Pedro said. And if you're referring to the game as a whole, as long as it needs to be till only one person remains!

Yeah tell me about it. Somniac was like totally rocking the "I'm not playing" card xD

Honest April 7th, 2013 2:26 PM

A friendly reminder to PM me with any kills along with the link to the post/VM/blog. I'll need these by 8:00 PM EST. Failure to do so will result in failed kills!

Honest April 7th, 2013 4:00 PM

Day One News

OKAY. Day One has officially come to a close! I will have the dead list posted up by 8:30 so make sure you have PMed me every kill

Also, and this is important to not. The Brother has been thinking, and we've decided on the following new rule to make this interesting:
  • Normally, the person who has the most kills per day will be announced on this thread as the MVP for that day in the second post and be given a very helpful perk
  • If there is NO MVP for a day, we will randomly revive one person from the dead to rejoin the battle. For the first day only, we will revive two. Keep in mind, you can only be revived once in this entire thing, so if you died, got revived, then died again, you are OUT. THIS PERSON SHALL REMAIN ANONYMOUS.
  • If you were chosen to be revived, you will be PMed a very nice message saying so. I will edit the OP when those people have been PMed to prevent confusion.
  • Look at the first post for clarification on a certain rule. There's been an issue with what posts are eligible to kill.
  • It's 8:30! If you had a kill and failed to report, sorry!
  • The two people who have been revived will be PMed shortly, and everyone will get there new target as soon as I am finished with that.
  • The revived people have been PMed! If you did not get a PM, don't despair. There is always the chance that tomorrow will lack an MVP as well, and another revival will take place. Only one will be revived, if that's the case.
  • Targets have been PMed!

Day Two has officially begun!
