A darkness is coming . . . it will spread to every corner of HSD!

Five heroes (Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, and Frodo). It is your mission to track down who I am and call upon my true identity on the forums. But I certainly hope you don’t do that, as it would spoil EVERYTHING. :| If you arrest the wrong person, you get a black mark on your record. Two marks, and you’re out of the fellowship.

I will be preoccupied with assassinating random (or not so random) HSD members, including the cops, when I see fit. If I kill all 5 cops, Incognito and my true identity will be united once again be joined and Mordor will destroy Middle Earth! (er. . . HSD). But, just knocking off the heroes takes the fun out of the game, so the chances of knocking off all five is very slim. I will drop hints as to my next victim, and if a hero finds out who that victim is and protects that person, he or she will not be killed. A successful protect also will force me to divulge an identity clue.

After the game has been completed, the first person to PM me requesting to be the next Incognito will be given complete control of the account.

But enough talking already. This is a quest for the brave of heart, so the first five to reply shall join! No moderators, as they can easily view my IP address and compare, and that unfortunately, takes the fun out of the game. I am allowing moderators on condition that they do not check the IP address, honor system.

Post away. The game will start with an assassination after our five "heroes" have been selected.

Rule clarification: No after death posts.

Also new extra: If you read this it will help you down the road. I purposely will try to misguide you with false clues in the non-identity clue portions of my posts. Beware and stick to the road.

Sincerely,
YFNA

I would but I found out who it was already :P, plus it's only fair to give someone else a shot at being a cop . . . er . . . Hero is it??? It's probably best that I don't get in, I've got dozens of things to do to finish up my summer and I've got to navigate college classes and stuff :P. I'll follow along though!

I'm rather new(-ish), but it seems like this could be a good way to get to know people. So I'll join, unless you think that would be a bad idea.

Yes, you are Gandalf, but at this point that doesn't give you powers.

Both clues could be referring to a number of things, depending on how subtle they are.

The identity clue could be referring to actual sickness- e.g., someone who's had a cold recently. It could also be referring to the type of fake cough that someone might give to direct someone's attention to something in particular.

The victim clue could be referring directly to reptiles, in which case, someone who likes reptiles, or who has a reptile in their profile picture. It could even go so far as to suggest someone who strongly identifies with Slytherin house from Harry Potter. But the clue could also be referring to a personality trait. Possibly someone who will have a new interest or hobby every once in a while (and will "shed" their old hobbies), or someone who normally has one face that they put forward, but will change it in a certain type of situation.

Like I said before, I'm rather new, but does any of this ring a bell or point in a particular direction?

I had assumed it meant the latter(the eye-roll seemed to indicate that), but JohnMarkPorter1 had a really bad cough a while ago(http://www.homeschooldebate.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=28&start=580), and he ended the post with that same :roll: emoticon.

ShaynePC used to get a new avatar/signature every time he saw a new movie, but it says "I like" not "I liked", and he doesn't really do that anymore. So, ShaynePC for now, but if we get any better ideas and I have to protect someone else, I will. Come to think of it, I change my avatar a lot. And my location. And occasionally my signature. And I actually still do it. Never mind about ShaynePC, although the chance is small of it being a cop, I think it's more likely to be me given the present tense, and if we lose me, that's a point towards us losing, as opposed to losing ShaynePC, who isn't a cop. Mr. E. And if someone could protect ShaynePC and Invisihand, that would be good.

Also, here's my problem solving chart.
