December Event: Assassin!
The December event is called Assassin.
We are playing in the Factory Arena.
Starting positions will be randomly assigned.
There is one special rule.
You may only attack your assassination target.
Anyone attacking someone other than their assassination target will automatically be eliminated from not only the match, but the entire Olympiad.
Here is how it will work.
I have 12 sealed envelopes each with your name on them. Inside this envelope is a yellow card with your targets name on it. When you eliminate your target, your next target is the mech your target was hunting.
I figure this game will take a while so it will be the only event of the night.
Here is how I stuffed the envelopes, to calm those doubters out there. I placed everyone's own yellow card in their own envelope. I then shuffled the envelopes, so that I could not see the names, and placed them in a ring around the table. I then opened the envelopes (unable to see the name on the yellow card or the envelope) and moved each yellow card one envelope to the left. I then sealed the envelopes, and shuffled them again...without looking at the names.
This will make an "Assassination loop". Meaning the only way you get your own card is if all the others are dead.
Special rules for this match.
When you are eliminated, you pass your current target card to the mechwarrior that eliminated you but keep the cards of those mechs you eliminated.
There is no murphy award for this battle, but you will get an extra 2 Million C-Bills and 1 Fame per card that you are holding at the end of the night. (Mechs that you assassinated)
Once again...you can only attack the person whose card you have. You can keep it a secret or show the world...the only person that needs to validate you have the correct card is your target, and if they ask to see your card, you must show them.
The one exception to the No attacking non-target rule is...You may make a "push" attack against a mech that is preventing you from moving. For example you figure you will protect yourself from your unknown assassin, and back yourself into a corner. Your assassin moves in to base to base with you. Effectively trapping you in the corner. In the physical attack phase you may attempt a Push attack, to give yourself some room to escape in the following movement phase. Remember you must have two arms to make a pushing attack.
If someone can't make it that night, the person that was to assassinate them will open their envelope and take the inside card as their new target.
Don't like that you can't shoot back at the person that is shooting at you...too bad. Kill the 10 guys in your way to get their card and when it is only the two of you left...then you can attack them.
Last mechwarrior standing gets a free mech from any list they may legally purchase from.
