"Are you sure this is a good idea?" asked Edward.
Kat grinned, turning around from where she was pinning a piece of paper to the noticeboard in the Cafeteria. "What could possibly go wrong?"
Edward shot her a death glare until she admitted, "Okay, I did that on purpose to annoy you."
"When the Ironic Overpower ruins all this, it's your fault."
"It was my idea in the first place," said Kat, "I'll take responsibility for it." She jammed the final pin into the board. "There we are!" she said, stepping back to admire the notice. It read:
Ever wanted a PPC game of Assassin? No? Well, I made one anyway. The rules are as follows:
Sign up below by writing your name, RC number and an object commonly found in HQ or on missions. Sign-ups close two weeks from now (22/10/19), and you will receive your target and object shortly after.
To kill your target, all you have to do is give them the object that you were given before you are killed yourself. However, they must willingly take it: no forcing it on them, giving it to them when they are unconscious, or mind-controlling them into taking the object.
If you are killed, you must tell your killer who your target and object were and they will then take on that role. If at any stage you find yourself having to kill yourself, let me know and I will reshuffle the surviving players.
Good luck, have fun, and let me know if you have any questions.

The rules as stated IC apply for this. There is no time limit; it can go on as long as it takes. For one of your agents to kill someone, you have to write a canonical PPC story (mission, interlude or RP) featuring one of your agents giving their target the object.
As that previous statement implies, sign-ups are only open to people with Permission and at least one story featuring their agents. Enter in this thread with between one and four agents and the same number of objects commonly found in the PPC, and please make your email clickable so I can send you your targets once sign-ups close.
If the target one of your agents is given means you have to co-write something with someone you wouldn't normally co-write with, you may post something along the lines of "one of my agents needs to kill one of your agents, can we do a co-write?" but don't reveal which agent.
This next rule should go without saying, but no meta-gaming. Just because you know someone is trying to kill one of your agents doesn't mean the agent is allowed to know that. Try to respond in-character as your agent, even if you know that means they'll get killed.
Good luck, have fun, and may the best agent win!
