[Mini-Phalla] THE PHALLAM@STER - Game Cancelled.

PHALLAMASTER.png
THE PHALLAM@STER
A MrBlarney Production
with assistance from cj iwakura

Based off the IDOLM@STER game series by Namco-Bandai


Genre: Traditional (Village vs. Mafia), Expanded (Additional Sub-Game Mechanics), Audience Participation


In the world of pop idols, competition is fierce. With so many idols competing for market space, it's very difficult to make a name for oneself in the industry. The difficulty of getting exposure and recognition means that some of the most important places to make a mark are in auditions and competitions. Among these competitions is the newly-created PHALLAM@STER competition. A multi-stage western-styled competition with lots of potential exposure, this competition could mean a big break for the idol that wins the title. Of course, with so much to gain from winning, there are those out there that will resort to underhanded tactics to try and get an advantage on the rest. Fortunately, the managers and fans will each have a say in who ends up on the top of the rest. Who will win the competition? Will it be an idol managed by a hard-working and honest producer that is voted to the top? Or will another idol get to the top due to dubious means?


Game Overview
Players in this game take the role of producers for prospective idols entered in the PHALLAM@STER competition. While most producers are honest, there are a few in the competition who are determined to win and are willing to resort to underhanded tactics to eliminate their competitors. It just wouldn’t be right to allow such people to win, and so it’s your job to show off the power of honest work by making sure that none of them take the competition.

Honest Producer Win Condition: Eliminate all dishonest producers so that an idol managed by an honest producer wins the competition.
Dishonest Producer Win Condition: Eliminate all honest producers so that one of the idols in your group wins the competition.

Summary of General Activity
Spoiler:


Information
At no point will information about an idol's stat distribution will be made public. Narration results will list whether or not each idol’s producer was clean (village) or dirty (mafia).


Signing Up
Sign up for this game by posting "!sign up - <Idol Name>" using an image color below of your choice. Idols should be original characters. Each image color may only be chosen once: first come, first served. Improper formatting and edited posts will not be counted. Once you have selected an idol, send me via PM your idol’s starting stats (20 points among Dance, Vocal, Visual, and Character, and not including the Appeal points) to verify your sign-up.


Inactivity
As always, it is expected that players will try to make at least two posts and vote each day, but it is suggested that an effort to be more active than this be made. If inactivity is sensed, a warning will be sent out; if the warning is not heeded, the player in question will be replaced or eliminated from the game.


General Rules
Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of host-provided PMs via screenshots and direct quotation. However, information may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing. No anonymous contact is allowed. All messages must be traceable to a player in the game. Play nice.

If any players create 'proboards' for private communication, please send a link for it to the host.

While there are things for non-players to do during this game, non-players are still prohibited from posting in the game thread once the game has commenced and are restricted from contacting others still in the game except to provide materials for fan support purposes. Contact between non-players should similarly be limited. Eliminated players are also subject to these general rules. Players who are still in the game should not contact any non-players or any players who have been eliminated from the game except for fan support purposes (i.e. no strategy talks).

    Jesus Blarney, you really did it.

    Clarification:
    There's a min for each stat. Is there a max?

    Is there any restriction on nationality for idols? I only ask because of the Japanese name resources included in the OP.

    Yeah. I'm not so sure how I'm supposed to feel either.

    There is no maximum cap on stat values.

    There is no restriction on nationality, though it is preferred for thematic reasons that you create an idol of Japanese or Japanese-mixed ancestry. Otherwise I would have made an American Idol / America's Got Talent Phalla instead...

    Non-players can only make one fan support vote per day. However, they can provide campaign materials to multiple players if they wish.



    On a side note, according to the rules, Dunadan019 and B:L haven't actually signed up properly. Please re-submit your applications if you wish to play.

    Blarney, honestly, you're a mad man. A genius, but a mad man. This will be incredibly difficult to track, good luck to the contestants and to the people running this (mini?) phalla! Hopefully I have enough time to pick an idol and spam them with creepy messages and stalk the hell out of em! :D

    Perhaps I should rephrase that, then. You can be as creative as you want when creating an idol for this game, uniqueness is rather encouraged in fact. The only real limits that I'm putting forth is that the managed idol be of Japanese or Japanese-mixed ancestry and be female, due to the theme of the game. Anything else goes, pretty much, and even the 'limits' can be bent or broken if there's a good enough reason / story behind it. So don't feel limited when you've got almost complete freedom here.

    Well, at this rate, there won't be enough players to really make for a compelling game anyways.

    It seems like there's some reluctance to sign up because of the theme or because of the bonus point mechanics. I do apologize somewhat for the theme; the idea came into my head while doing the Dr. Lucky Phalla, and being the 'best worst idea', I felt somewhat compelled to follow through. Certainly it is a bit of a fringe thing, but this is just the way I thought of to do the theme justice. I would also like to say that the campaign mechanics are entirely optional - you don't have to commit yourself to producing any additional materials and can easily play this game straightforwardly. There is no obligation at all to produce extra content, not even profiles or background information.

    But then again, I might be overthinking things. There's still plenty of time left in the sign-up period, so there's still a possibility that there are players still lurking in the shadows to sign up.

    This is not a game I could play from my phone, to which I am currently limited. Though, truthfully, I would be afraid of getting my ass kicked by people with actual artistic ability.

    This is a game that would be worth some cross forum advertising if that is allowable. I'd be excited to see what kind of participation could be had from the AC or SE

    The theme sounds.... interesting :lol:. This one sounds like I'd have more fun cheering and such from the sidelines. But I do want to see this go, so if, once weekend-itis ends for a bit, you're still suffering from a dearth of players, I wouldn't mind signing up. Although probably not going to do much extra material myself, but mebbe I'll conscript someone haha.

    I do plan to sign up, but this is the kinda thing you'll need to personally chase some people who haven't phalla'd in a while to do, from across the forums. It'll take the best people to get this running well and proper.

    See, I'd be all up for that if it wasn't for the whole japanese music/fashion.etc thing that would have to be a part of it.

    Regardless, I'm going to be providing campaign material for this game to anyone who wants it.

    People are allowed to recruit forum members who aren't CF regulars, that's no problem at all! Of course, use your best judgment and don't be a nuisance when doing so.

    Yeah, this kind of sentiment bothers me a little bit. If you're cheering from the sidelines, all you're doing is observing, making your fan votes, and helping with campaign materials. Non-players aren't allowed to post in the game thread once the game commences, you know? Then it's up to the players to try to rally the support of the audience to them for bonuses. They're the ones who are really going to get involved.

    Campaign materials need not be Japan-centric, really. I'd like to encourage artistic freedom as much as possible, so I'm not going to put many limits on what will be allowed/counted. The only things I'm putting guidelines on are the character creation, and even then, they can be broken with good reason.
