With the blessing of Ctishman, Jrunder and I are going to be running Paxassins. Watch out for the application thread. <b> Estimated time of application thread is <u>JULY</u> not June.

What is Paxassins?
-Paxassins is an opportunity for ninjas throughout the nation to test their masterful skill of stealth, deception and logic. A chosen few will be set loose on the PAX grounds, each given a target and a sacred paper watch. Withing the course of the three days the ninjas must kill and destroy their given targets. A kill is confirmed if a ninja rips their target's watch off, however if not fast enough their target may counter attack by ripping their enemies watch thus saving themselves and taking the kill for them self.

The official rules will be posted around July.

    People are assigned people to "kill" and as proof, you take their PAXassins watch with their target. So you keep killing people until either you are last man standing (Very unlikely everyone gets axed), or until end of weekend, when the winner is declared by who has the most "kills".

    Faulty memory, I guess. Anyway, did you know we're running an assassins-like game at PAX this year, only moreso? I mean, we've got RPG elements, stats, a plot, teams, etc. It wouldn't be good for either game if we split the playerbase, but this thing's been in development since shortly after the last PAX.

    Maybe you guys should just consider playing Patient Zero: http://phenixone.com

    I fully endorse this Patient Zero game as it has a massive number of allowable players. Paxassins is a much smaller game, though, so I don't really see it as dividing the playerbase (I believe last year was less than 10 players). I guess it depends on what kind of game people want to play. Large or small, simple or RPG elements, teams or solo. It doesn't have to be a competition between the two games however.

    Yah I brought that up to Jrunder. He just said its a team base game. Doesn't have the same simplicity of paxassins which a lot of people look forward too.

    Anywho, people have different preferences, but we got a trophy!!

    edit: and when I heard there wasn't going to be a paxassins this year i was thinking "what is pax without the constant paranoia that someone is going to get you?"

    The rules. Let me quote from II.I: "Don't Do This Shit"

    The Rules wrote:
    - Don't Do This Shit
    - No Goddamn Kung-Fu
    Let me say this one more time. We play to have fun, and this
    extends to your opponent as well as yourself. Don't punch someone
    to take their watch, don't kick them in the mean bean machine,
    armbar them or anything. Meld with the crowd, attain the proper
    position and make your play. Simple as that.
    This extends to the hunted as well. Don't elbow your attacker in
    the jaw, spit in his face, or put into motion whatever dastardly
    defense you had in mind. Once she gets her hand on your watch,
    it's teh overs. This doesn't mean you can't spin around and run
    if you think the person on your right is a ninja after the family
    quartz, just that you shouldn't lash out at him/her. A "sup
    ninja" will suffice to let them know that their clumsy attempts
    at stealth have failed.
    - No Goddamn Weapons
    Just because this has come up, I'm making it explicit. A ninja
    needs no weapon to make his kill. DON'T USE ONE. Don't bring it,
    don't threaten your target or potential assassin or anyone with a
    weapon. This means blades, firearms, sharp sticks, blunt sticks,
    your swag bag, whatever. Don't use it. If you are trained in such
    a way that your entire body is a weapon, waiting to be set loose
    upon the unsuspecting world, see the No Goddamn Kung-Fu rule.
    - Don't Break PAX Rules
    Yeah, this one's simple. Read the rules on the first page of your
    program and don't do any of the shit they tell you not to. It's a
    party, and you're here to have fun. If you're not having fun
    anymore, it's not worth playing.

    This is from my rulebook last year, but I assume something similar'll be in place in '07. Counterkilling was also out, and players were restricted to passive resistance (e.g. running/twisting away). A failed attempt meant that the assassin had tipped his hand, and that the target would know who to watch out for.

    I was thinking about PAXassins this year, but since I'm on the Enforcer crew, I'd consider that an unavoidable form of cheating. I can't work and play at the same time, and taking 6 hour windows out of my place in the game is an entirely unfair advantage, especially if I'm subconciously taking note of targets while I'm on shift.

    Being an enforcer? Just another way to blend with the crowd =)
