    !El Skid for admitting he is in fact hellspawn.

    Also, I was targeted three times tonight. Two showed up with their name, but another was some sort of detonation going off.

    If the people who attacked me don't want their names revealed they should contact me and offer some information. I don't expect to live through the night, I only have ~200 men left.

    Do we really want to vote for an outed German? I was standing next to Thorgot, and it seems he ran to the Central trenches with no ill effects. We should probably use the vote on suspected traitors, and use our guns to deal with confirmed enemies.

    Narration said that thorgot took damage.

    Perhaps he took damage because there were 8 others close enough to shoot at him, and he was a suspected traitor?

    So you just decided to shoot at me for fucking fun and giggles? Are you retarded or evil?

    I don't recognize your avatar so I'm going assume you're new to phallas, let me explain the basics: We win when we kill all bad guys. We can't win if we drive bullets through each other's bodies. You're either a backstabbing moron who doesn't understand the first thing about these games or you're a bad guy.

    War is serious.

    Nonetheless, we really aren't goin' to get anywhere if we continue to just shoot at each other. However, with no accurate analyzin' abilities, it'd be compromisin' to try and start up a large-scale network to choreograph movement and attacks for, really, either side I'm assumin'.

    So invadin' the other side's command central is a way to victory, is it not?

    It will stop the artillery, but it won't grant us victory.

    If vote deaths happen first, but the vote move happens with the other moves, my theory still holds. If the vote kills and moves before everything else, I have no idea what happened.

    Clarification: Does the vote still fully effect members of the Central Forces?
    Even if it doesn't, it's better for us to 'waste' it on a confirmed/highly likely Central Forces target then shoot blindly with it.

    Well, since El Skid already came out with it, there's no need for me to rehash the obvious:

    Some of you may have traitors within your midst. El Skid was a member of my battalion (The British Expeditionary Force) and hightailed it out of our square today. I'm also equipped with Sniper Rifles, which give me a 2 square field of vision, and I don't see him this morning, which means he somehow moved more than 2 squares.

    If anyone sees him, you know what to do.

    What we need are more suspects now so that those within range can deal with the traitors appropriately.

    You see, we equip our men with jet packs.

    Oh, I think it's very worth it for the bad guys to choreograph their movements. Good guys don't need to bother. Did I mention that bad guys should continue PMing me?

    Sort of. If you can get to the german command centre and take it out, we can't use artillery anymore. We have to take out one of your commanders as part of our victory condition.

    So really, they're important, but not truly essential to an Entente victory.

    Oh thank god. I thought it was just me.

    I grabbed a few people I was talking with when I had the idea to run this and asked those in the newbie phalla to come help me test the mechanics to get some fresh eyes on them. I figured most of you would hate it, so maybe I'd have to find some other people who might like it!

    All right, so, first things first:

    ALLIED FORCES, YOU MUST NOT FIRE UPON ONE ANOTHER UNTIL YOU HAVE A REASONABLE REASON TO BELIEVE THE PERSON BEING FIRED UPON IS A DIRTY CENTRAL TRAITOR

    We must minimize our inter-alliance casualties for two reasons:

    1) Most obviously: We must not reduce our own number but MORE importantly
    2) The less Squadrons get hit, the easier it will be to deduce who the Centrists are if we have a smaller list of casualties to sift through

    So, to re-iterate: This isn't a free for all. This isn't Phalla Royale. Your neighbor may be your ally until he shows otherwise.

    Furthermore: Don't forget that there are traitors among us. Your Battalion mates may not necessarily be trustworthy.

    These are chaotic times,
    Godspeed, soldiers.

    I wish to bring the central power bastard, QUOTH, to the stands.


    He is quite over powered, seeing as he almost inflicted HALF DAMAGE to my army last night, as I was simply marching by him. He attacked me for no reason, beyond trying to kill me.


    HE IS A TRAITOR.

    Ok we need to start sorting through this casualty list.

    I think those who took damage today need to explain what their alliances are and who attacked them (assuming they know).

    Needless to say, I expect the Centrists in their midst to lie, but if we have enough info, we can begin to speculate and try and separate the chaff and the wheat.

    I already have a few suspicions which I am debating with a few others, but we need to hear some opinions to make a list of "most wanted" suspects.

    Members on this list will be open season and any allies within range of these suspects are cleared to fire at will.

    DIRTY CENTRAL TRAITOR
    I'd like to point out at this time that this is not a war of "traitors" or "good vs. evil". World War I had many, many reasons for its inception - and none of them boil down to "dirty central traitor."

    You oppressive dog.

    By traitor, I mean someone who has infiltrated an Allied unit, under pretense of being a Allied soldier so that they can betray them at an opportune time. El Skid pretended to be a British Commander when he was not, thus, by definition, he is a traitor.

    Any more wise words, you dirty Kraut?

    Actually, if he was never loyal to Entendre forces, he wouldn't be a traitor, would he? You can't betray something you were never loyal to in the first place.

    But I don't know El Skid's story, so then again, maybe he is.
    Any more wise words, you dirty Kraut?
    Several, in fact.

    1) Kraut wasn't used as derogatory slang for a German until WWII. "Jerry" is slightly more correct from a chronological standpoint, but it didn't gain widespread use until after WWI. "Boche" would be appropriate if you're French. "Fritz" is also acceptable.

    2) I'm not German. I mean, the Red Baron was, but my armies aren't German.

    Are you on the side of the central powers?

    Then quit debating semantics defending the Central powers and help us finger some!
    And just because El Skid wasn't actually loyal to the Crown, he still led us to believe he was, thus betraying OUR trust, regardless of his true loyalties. A traitor is called so from the perspective of the betrayed, not the betrayers.
