    Don't shut up, you learn by fucking up!

    When you spill your guts to a mafia member and they go "Okay okay, I trust you. I really have my suspicions about so-and-so though", and you become a mafia puppet for the entire game, you learn a great deal about how people interact with you and behave in those situations.

    Now, you'll also become about a billion times more paranoid about every offer of help, but that's phalla!

    The more you talk the better you'll get at it! Don't post less than you want to because you're worried about looking suspicious, or making incorrect assumptions. Mafia or Village, the game is enriched by every post in the thread, so keep talking!

    [edit] INANTP has the right idea. Just ask Cythraul how fun it can be!

    Fair enough, fair enough.

    I may not be as prolific in my posting as facetious, but I do tend to think out loud a bit in my posts. Not trying to "blend in" or anything - just trying to say something when the thread seemed unusually silent.

    I think the best part about newbie phalla is that it's almost entirely impossible to tell who's acting suspicious via their posts and who's just...new

    Tmoiy doesn't have any votes, unless you mean people have voted for him in past days.

    Yeah sorry, I meant people have already brought up suspicions, so he probably will get some votes.

  • MrTLiciousMrTLicious Registered User regular
    Also, Langly, what's your reasoning behind Turkson? Just because he's been quiet? I don't know his usual posting style, so it would be nice to know why you suspect him, unless that's privileged information ;)

  • LanglyLangly Registered User regular
    Turkson is the element of death and therefore untrustworthy.

    Actually I'm at lunch now I'll post a longer thing in a minute.

    Um, this seems to imply that tmoiy had this happen to him. Is this public knowledge from a previous phalla, or accidentally leaked information about this one?

    He's just talking about in general. It occurs fairly often. Like, for instance, in my first real game, where I was village and got used by the mafia, a neutral faction, and the village assault squad all at the same time.

    or when I used Jaysonfour in the brass phalla

    or when kime used virgil and void for their masoned guard in the science game (tmoiy was in that group but he died day one)

  • LanglyLangly Registered User regular
    Also Turkson, besides being quiet, is also being really quiet. He has made four posts this whole game, two of those were his votes, and the other two were the kind of non-speak that isn't contributing or adding to anything.

    Village assault squad? That sounds kick-ass.

    Turkson also keeps voting for me. What a jerk!!!

    Actually there a few people I think are just blending in. I'd normally call them out as is my wont to get them talking, but in this case I don't know if it's because people are just new or whatever. But speak up, people! :P

    Let's go with !INANTP, for encouraging people to fuck up. Sounds suspicious to me!

    The person who's giving me weird vibes is Taya. I guess I might as well put this out there: she's been PMing me since the start of the game, seemingly trying to get information out of me. In particular, after night one when I facetiously (heh.. sorry) thanked the guard in the thread on the off chance they guarded me, she PMed me asking if I knew if I'd been guarded and/or who the guard was. I felt like she was fishing for information. I don't know if she's in the network or whatever but it turns out I can't actually sit idly by for very long. :P

    Still, you guys know things I don't. !INANTP

    Can we get some reasons as to why I'm suspicious rather than giving general advice and following the leader after he says "Consorted with my fellows!"

    I can't defend against arguments that aren't made.



    edit for the below post because I don't want to triple post or edit a vote post

    In addition, he doesn't appear to be in the network since he doesn't know who the vig is, which makes me doubly suspicious of his desire to know exactly who's who.

    All I can really give, beyond the posts that I've made in this thread, is that SLyM contacted me in private and wanted to know anything I could give him to make me trustworthy. I offered information about me, but he offered none about himself.

    Without any other private communications I can offer little more. But I will say that perhaps we should look to the least experienced - people such as Tmoiy and MrTlicious and TheScruple - those who say little and offer cluelessness. We've gained nothing by targeting those among us who are vocal and confident, as well as losing some to the mafia.

    Because we are working blind right now. I say "what about this guy?" we discuss it, maybe toss a few names around, and in the end, we end up with you.

    Well, Baidol sent me a PM on Day 1 to try and get information and he was village. I assume he sent one to you too Facetious since you and I were almost tied in the vote.

    I've actually contacted a number of people. I didn't say so at first to see if anyone would comment on it without there being any way to know about it beforehand. I've told what suspicions I've had to KingMole, though I agree with my mentor that the amount that !INANTP posted in his response compared to what he's posted in the thread is pretty suspicious.

    I have contacted no one, because I am suspicious and really paranoid! Are you supposed to contact people? Is that like a common thing in Phalla?

    MrTLicious, Tmoiy, and Turkson are also on my suspicious persons list (which includes everybody).

    Yes, Baidol did contact me.

    I dunno Taya, if I'm wrong them I'm sorry, but I can only say what I'm thinking.

    Contacting people is strange. Sometimes you can catch a mafia if you contact them because they have trouble keeping the facade up. Sometimes they turn around on you and trick you into giving them information. It's basically a risk you can chose to take, but right now if we have another night without a mafia death we're pretty boned, so now is the time to take risks.

    I was contacted by Baidol as well, and Taya. At first I was tight lipped but my mentor set me straight. Nothing wrong with talking to fellow villagers, the mafia knows who they are.

    This kinda feels like LA Noir the text adventure. I am pretty bad at reading faces, but at least it's something!

    I hope you know what you are doing Kingmole, reel in a big one!

    If I cannot end the suspicions upon me, I say this firmly: Look closely to those who follow who are not networked, those who claim to trust the network head by virtue of being the network head. We have gained nothing from watching voting patterns, because everyone has followed the head, and few have thrown out alternatives.

    Discussion is what drives a successful village. Don't assume anyone knows more than you. In this game in particular, they have little more experience (or less) than you.

    This. Just remember that playing Phalla is all about having fun. Don't get me wrong, I love me some heated debating, and winning is good too, but if people are just throwing insults around, or are scared to do anything for fear of getting killed/yelled at/whatever, well, you're sort of missing the point. Be bold!

  • TmoiyTmoiy Registered User
    Very well! Bolding it all up in here.

    Thread has been very quiet today. My gut feeling is that INANTP is probably not mafia; I do trust the network head, but at this point the wagon hardly needs me on it anyway. So I'll vote Turkson in the hopes of stirring up a little discussion. Neither he nor 38thDoe have posted today at all, and that seems very strange. If you're a special, sorry for blowing your cover, I guess.

    He's trying to deflect onto me. Die mafia scum die. And I'm always quiet, but I'll agree that I'm being too quiet in this game.

    I'm guessing the main thrust of the discussion has moved into PMs. In any case, without anything but hunches in the thread, I'm alright with putting votes on Turkson. He has been pretty absent. Possibly he had a busy day like I did, and its possible he'll get inactivused, but that's my gut instinct at the moment.

    Well, I guess I might as well chime in here.
    After initially voting for INANTP, his posts make a lot of sense. I have a handful of other suspicions: I too was PMed by Taya, so it seems she's PMed everyone, looking to connect, maybe give advice. Facetious is easily the most verbose when he's around, but I can't get a read on him there's so much noise. 38thdoe and Turkson are 2 of the 3 most experienced players left, and had been completely MIA today (until just now as I was typing this). I think SlyM was the first player who voted for each of the eventual villagers voted out, which could just be coincidence.

    With 2 pending votes, if I counted correctly, plus any late movement, moving my vote would put us in danger of a tie between INANTP and Turkson. Edit: if I moved to Turkson, that is.

    I hate being indecisive and paranoid, I have no idea how some of you can play more than one of these at a time.

    Edit: refreshing the page ate my draft...

    I would be very surprised (but pleased, theoretically) if the vote moved off me.
