    So, what do you guys think about tonight's deaths? I'd like to believe that I was killed because of my inestimable brilliance.

    I assumed that meant you were a special. The only other thing I can think of is that you counted as the dead human for the cultists, and it was part of the summoning ritual.

    Well, I wasn't a special, just a normal human. Summoning ritual makes sense, but that's kinda depressing if that's all, and didn't Squashua die before me? I'd just assume that the first member of a race to die would be the one that counted for the cultist.

    I think that I died because I made a post which said, essentially, Fucking gnomes and their Napoleon complexes.

    Kind of dumb of me. Of course the little freaks are going to take umbrage at that. :P

    I like this game though. Peppy. Quick.

    Finding people out as badguys in other Phallas gets me targeted in future Phallas?

    Yeah, good lesson.

    Being the player most forumers have a grudge against yet surviving "settle your grudge" Phalla gets me targeted in future Phallas?

    Yeah, good lesson.

    Fixed.

    Seriously though, I won't be bandwagoning you without cause in the future. I only did it this time because I thought it was both appropriate and funny, and because I know you're a good sport.

    So, Grimmy, why did you two knock me off? What did I do that was so wrong? If it compromises the other player's identity, you probably shouldn't tell me, but I'm really curious.

    Hate to disappoint, Buzz Buzz, but in this Phalla my partner and I did the first kills pretty much randomly. Sorry that we ended up knocking you off -- I guess that's two Phallas now where that's happened on the first night. It's not personal, I assure you.

    Of course, in Vampire my (old) partner and I did it intentionally to get people thinking about Space Phalla.

    I know, I know, it was a cop out. Think of it this way though: The whole universe thought you were too big a threat to leave alive? Could be?

    Sorry man, it didn't even occur to me how often you die at the beginning of games until the narration went up. If I'd have remembered I'd have tweaked the RNG results a bit.

    Mmm...yes, that's good for the ol' ego. :)

    And if it happens again, then I'm gonna hafta start acting like Munkus. I guess that means talking like a Japanese tourist...or something.

    I even constructed a plausible argument in my head for why you guys killed me. I was against the metagaming, which, if neither of the cultists are Inquisitor's roommate, might have meant that I was a gnome and knew the details behind the roommate situation, due to one of the other gnomes being Inquisitor's roommate. Therefore, in order to smack down a gnome, you attacked me. Of course, since that wasn't what you guys were thinking, this entire train of thought falls apart immediately. :)

    Let me just say that the one thing I liked about space phalla was the alternates incase someone had to drop out. Losing a seventh of your team due to inactivity really hurts.

    Man. :(

    You are a Plane-walker!
    You do not fully exist in the physical realm, making you partially immune to all physical attacks. You cannot be killed by the Gnomes—however, if you are targeted by the Gnomes your role will be revealed in that night’s narration. You are on the side of the humans.

    NOTE: If you are being guarded by the shield and have multiple attacks directed at you, the shield will block the Gnomes’ attack and the second attack will go through.

    Yeah, it kinda stinks Gnasty. I was all ready for your game, and then the cultists RNG me, so I try to be active in Les Phalles, and no one's active over there. Your topic's moving pretty slowly, which is rather sad, since I liked the flavor of your game and think that the villagers could be playing a stronger game than they currently are. That said, there was a bit of bad luck for at least one of the village specials that I know about, so they haven't had everything going for them in terms of network building.

    Darn stinkin' cultists. Next Phallanoia, I think I'm gonna have to !zap GrimmyTOA. Just letting you know, Grimmy. Ya ain't gonna live through day 1. :P

    I sincerely hope we're on the same team then -- and provably so -- at the beginning of next game. Then who's laughing? Me.

    That's who. :P

    I'm sorry the Phalla's going slowly, Gnasty. The forum downtime coupled with the end of term (for some people) and Mothers' Day (for most people -- hopefully) ... it's unfortunate. Especially given how good the mechanics/style for this game are.

    Hey... I've got an idea. Feel like bringing us all back to life? We'd liven up the thread, cause bona fide havoc amongst the living, and... well that's it. I don't see a downside to it though, really. Beyond undoing all of your hard work and aggravating a whole lot of people. Those are minor concerns though, obviously.

    It would spice things up to resurrect you, Grimmy. I could do some fun things with that.

    We'll see. (Yeah, probably not gonna happen. But you can dream.)

    EDIT: Actually now I have a good idea. I was already planning on doing something when the cultists achieved 75% of their goal, but now I have a much, much better idea. Unfortunately, Grimmy, it doesn't involve you coming back to life.

    How does frandelgearslip know what snacks power was, unless he's reading this thread?

    I don't rememeber snacks stating his power in the main thread, unless it got spread out through PMs.

    I dont know man, Dead threads seem like such a liability.

    Nah, Snacks posted it in the main thread after he died (WTF, by the way?)

    So long as no one posts the name + role of a living player, I don't think there will be any issues. Most of what gets posted in these threads is stuff the living players could figure out if they were smarter.

    You're probably right.

    Totally bummed I had to drop out.

    I know people said I could just have not mentioned it and try to forget what I saw, but like, there's no way to really have it not influence my actions.

    It just kind of taints the whole thing you know? If I thought the person was guilty of my own deduction I would still be hesitant to implicate the person in a vote because in the back of my head I would be wondering if I would have chosen the person without that knowledge.

    I am gonna be extra careful next phalla.
