Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Phallakinetic - The New Renegade - IT'S ALL OVER! Hollow Village Victory!

Guess Who’s Back?



This is a phalla. Don't know what that is? Check the link!

This is set in the Exigency setting. This phalla follows Prelude to Phallakinetic.


Back to Arcadia

Welcome to Alpha Sector- the tiny shred of the galaxy that mankind has the nerve to refer to as “the galaxy”. There's no Beta or Gamma just yet. They're working on it.

This is the planet Arcadia (one of many, the name is considered lucky- it’s like calling an exploratory vessel the Pilgrim).

It's the far future- but not necessarily ours. Humanity has gone through the expected selection of wars and disasters to the extent that they can’t even remember exactly what happened.

Trillions live in the sprawling colonies maintained and policed by the innumerable nations and supercorporations of the Sector. The Domarian Legion, the sole superpower, is always on hand with their massive armies, monopolistic industry and terrifying technological superiority. The High Council, on the other hand, manages the psychic populace like a commodity- an incredibly lucrative commodity.

One is ruled by a militaristic regime and overseen by a ludicrously intelligent Supercomputer- the other, an elitist, mostly hereditary cabal. They hate each other. They'd never stoop to fighting it out, but when one side has telepaths and telekinetics and the other has giant war robots, nobody wants to place any bets.

The Recovery of Arcadia

And, once upon a time, they all came here in droves. The Arcadia star system was a nice place… until it was ravaged by the Renegade. But with injections of wealth and manpower from various superpowers with guilty consciences, the system has speedily recovered over the past 15 years.

Psychics and non-psychics live in harmony. The economy is booming- even the tourist industry. Arcadia is starting to live up to its name…

The New Renegade

Until it all started to happen again.

Someone- another psionor of monstrous power- is killing civilians with impunity. The international community is threatening to take disproportionate action if the situation is not resolved. There’s panic on the streets and looters and raiders are taking advantage of the situation.

The Legion's ships are orbiting the world, poised to scour the land bare with fusion cannons. Rumour has it that the High Council has operatives on the ground. There is even talk of crazed cults dedicated to the memory of the Original Renegade, and the glory of the newcomer who has taken their place.

But this time… this time, Arcadia is united against the threat. They can only hope that the threat isn't united against Arcadia.


RULES

Each night you will !vote for someone to be executed by the Legion. The vote ends nightly at 22:00 GMT. No matter how late I might be with the narration, any actions made or votes cast after this deadline will count towards the next day.

Order PMs should be sent to the Supercomputer account, while question and clarification PMs should be sent to the Edcrab account. I’ll be deleting them in order to keep some inbox space free, so don’t send multiples if it can be avoided. I’d probably get all angsty.

Unless otherwise stated, assume all normal Phalla rules apply. If you’re dead, you can’t contact living players. You can’t contact anyone anonymously. You can’t copy PMs through any means- this includes screenshots, codes, or telepathy damn it- and you need to provide me with links to any private boards. I reserve the right to replace and mercilessly badger anyone who's inactive! Inactivus is damn hungry, and he especially likes the taste of psychics.

The overall goal for the Arcadians- the village- is to kill or vote-kill the New Renegade, but many have alternate goals, such as eliminating all the members of the Chaotic faction. Win conditions may or may not be compatible with those of other factions- don’t assume that you’re forced to kill everyone who’s different, you dang bigot. Factions can be misleading, and in many cases they may prove to simply be flavour… but in others, they might not.

Unless otherwise stated, you are still capable of winning posthumously.

This phalla will feature non-standard aspects such as conversion and objective changes. So be warned, don't sign up if that isn't your bag. Things will get weird- if your objective appears suspiciously simple, expect there to be trouble ahead.


Attack Mechanics

Many roles have an “attack” ability with a percentage given- this is the percentage chance that you have of killing the target of your attack. Attacks stack for the purposes of determining success, so nine 10%-attack players mobbing Some Guy would result in a single attempt on his life with a 90% chance of success, rather than 9 separate 10% attempts.

So, yes, it’s possible (and very unlikely) but the whole thing could end after one night. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Unless otherwise stated, you can use your attack as well as your ability in the same night.


Life Mechanics

A few roles have a Life value supplied in their role PM. In effect, these roles have hitpoints, with their percentage Life values decreasing with each incoming attack. If in the above example Some Guy had 100% Life, then he’d be left with 10% Life after those ten players attacked him.


Seering Mechanics

Due to the theme, there are a lot of seers about: but most are imperfect seers, with a percentage chance of successfully determining the target's faction. Note that even if the attempt fails, the seer will be made aware of the target's sub-faction, i.e., role type.

“Mindscans” as referenced in roles are psychic seering abilities. Note that some roles are resistant to these.

Clarifications will be made in orange, following the previous trend.

Important Notes and other Clarifications

The vote is untouchable. It can’t be blocked, redirected, or nullified. If someone is vote-killed, they die.

The vote does not trickle down. If the target of the vote is killed as well as vote-killed, they're just extra dead.

In the case of a tie, the Supercomputer will decide. Personally, I think he just uses an RNG.

Actions are performed instantly. So if a guard-equivalent protects a player, that player will be protected for that night even if the guard winds up with a photon bolt through the eye socket- unless otherwise stated. Likewise, attackers who attack a player will still contribute to their kill-chance percentage even if they get killed themselves.

If you are attacked, or if you intercept an attack meant for someone else, you will be informed that you were attacked, but not by who. If you have a role with a Life statistic, you will be informed of its current level after you take damage.

In most cases, you will be informed if your attack or ability is blocked or otherwise unsuccessful.
