WELCOME TO THE REALM
Arcadia Welcomes You
Welcome all to the game of Phalla!
I shall be your host, [strike]Munkus Beaver[/strike] The Acquaintance.
I assure you, I have your best interests at heart.
[strike]I am the Anchor of Truth, I have been reduced to spectator. Defeat the Little Demon! I implore you! You must-
Do not trust his lies.
[strike]Little Demon, what machinations are these?
A bold move, Little Demon.
Now now you two, let's not bicker in front of the children, what will they think of us?
WHAT IS [strike]PHALLA?[/strike] THE GAME?
Phalla is a pyschological game where an informed minority (The Mafia
) attempt to defeat an uninformed majority (The Village
). The keys to the game are misinformation, lying, and determining when others are doing the same. The flip side is that telling the truth can be a powerful weapon, Mafia members who are well known for playing their roles straight are often less likely to be killed or found out.
Posting habits, voting habits, who you ally yourself with, all of these things go into play when determining who to trust and who to vote to die.
Ah yes, the mechanics. At the most simple form, the game is where the Village
votes on who to kill each night, hoping to secure a mafia member in their net. Likewise, Mafia
members chose who they want to kill each night. Mafia members can also vote in the Village, so a crafty and manipulative Mafia will use the villager to meet their own agenda.[/strike]
The game is all about manipulation.
In order to determine whether this country is 'worthy,' you must find the deceivers in your midst and oust them from your group.
Will the Truth win or shall the Liars succeed?
At least my pawns know their role.
And soon....I will be able to join the game in earnest
Despite your feelings toward me, you cannot be rid of me. For better or worse, you and I are in it until the end.
SO WHAT'S THE THEME OF THIS PHALLA? HARRY POTTER? MY LITTLE PONY? ANIME BOY JUNKIES 4?
None of the sort. It's a generic sort of fantasy world built exclusively for this game. You are all citizens of Arcadia
, a country within the sphere of influence of magic, elves, dwarves, and demons known as The Realm.
The Realm is currently ruled by descendent's of the Pendragon family, you are all various subjects of The Realm
, each with their own unique backstory and motivations.
That's right, the important thing to note about this game is that THERE IS NO 'GENERIC' VILLAGER ROLE.
You all get named roles to play. The 'special' roles have been determined using an RNG, they are already in place before you choose. People 'lucky' enough to be a 'special' will be informed of their true
identity via PM.
The enemies you will be facing are all working to further the interests of The Enemy of Truth
. The Enemy of Truth
is, of course, [strike]a lying and evil man[/strike] Fear
, so he may not have their best interests at heart.
HOW TO PLAY
Tell the truth to get ahead, lie to avoid death, manipulate and revel in your machinations.
to put a vote for Patsy to die.
to retract your old vote for Patsy.
The person with the most votes will find comfort that they will not suffer for much longer.
VOTING ENDS AT
10 PM CST on Thursday. 9 PM CST on Friday. 6 PM CST on Saturday. Then back to 10 PM on Sunday and so on. I have obligations, you see.
SPECIAL ACTIONS ARE DUE ONE HOUR BEFORE VOTING ENDS EACH NIGHT
. These narrations taking a fucking long time to craft, so this is necessary to get started early.
You won't hurt my feelings by being inactive, will you? The absolute, BARE MINIMUM
is two posts per game night. Furthermore, YOU MUST VOTE EVERY DAY
I encourage you to have as much fun as you possible can. I know I will.
