    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. :)

    Heh. It could have been true though. Would you like me to pretend that I thought it was? I'm happy to, if you'd like.

    I just want to tell you guys that I know everyone's secrets, and this feeling of power is super awesome. Running a phalla is going to be so much fun.

    Howdy gnome. Nice try, douchebag. :)

    It's looking good for that remaining cultist. Human, Plane-Walker, Gnome, and Half-Gnome, all toast.

    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.

    Mother's day weekend is not a good time to host a Phalla, it seems. Inactivity is rampant and multiple people seem to have a lot of shit going down in their lives right now.

    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.

    You were put into a hard situation that really sucked. For what it's worth I think you made the right choice.

    You definitely made the right call, Inquisitor. Any other decision would have hamstrung either your effectiveness as a player, your roomie's effectiveness as a special, or your relationship with your roommate. Nothing else you could have done.
    Snacks posted it in the main thread after he died (WTF, by the way?)

    Yeah, that was a bit of a headscratcher for me, too.

    Snacks wasn't really thinking when he posted that in the main thread, and by now he thinks it's a moot point to edit the post. He assures you it won't happen again.

    Honestly, I can't find myself getting too upset over you posting your role PM for this specific phalla after you died because christ, the things crawled to a stop.

    Maybe it's just a mother's day weekend induced lag but the poor things barely moving. Bummer too, I really liked it and would have alot to say right now if I was still alive.

    Heh. It was kind of legendary. And it taught me a valuable lesson about network maintenance -- don't ignore the network. So a learning experience, in a sense.
