Identity Duplicity Sign-ups Post (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Sign-ups Post (open) Sign-ups Post (close) Identity Duplicity is a game I came up with (although it's probably been done before, I haven't bothered searching Google or anything) where, basically, you must fool everyone else into thinking you aren't you. There will be twelve players and each of them must PM me an alias that they desire to use for the game. Aliases may be a maximum of 30 characters in length. All of the players and aliases will be posted in the main topic in alphabetical order when the game starts. Following this, there will be a repeated process I've decided to call 'periods'. Each period will last for 24 hours (unless I can't be on to update at the deadline). During each period, all players will be required to do three things, and they are listed as follows: Players must submit a message to be posted by the host that must be at least 25 words in length. It must make sense and be written in English. No player may submit the same message more than once during the entire game. Players may submit the same messages as others have submitted, however. Players must submit one alias that they wish to know the identity of. The identity of the alias submitted will be privately told to the player at the beginning of the next period. Players must submit a list of aliases and players which correspond to their guesses about which alias belongs to which player. You may not submit incomplete lists. There is also a single-use ability that players may elect to use for a period. This ability is to check how many of the aliases in the list submitted for that period correctly correspond to the players. You will not be told which, however. The penalty for failing to submit a message is that for the next two periods, no lists or aliases are to be submitted by that player. There is no penalty for failing to submit the other two parts, however, because that's just disadvantaging yourself. Any players that get substituted in for inactive players will assume the alias of the player they are subbing in for. Players should attempt to work out which player is which alias through the alias, messages, and through talking to the players on IRC, the forums, in the thread, etc. The game ends once one or more players manage to submit an entirely correct list. The winner(s) of the game will be the player(s) who submits an entirely correct list first. Example Legal Message: Dogfish45: I understand that the crocodile awaiting me in your moat is very hungry, but don't you think that we could talk for just a little while longer? This message is written in English and is 27 words in length. The alias that posted it was Dogfish45. This is an example of a legal message.
