    It seems that in every Phalla the bad guys have to fight up hill to win. I swear, when I do Planescape: Phalla it will be tough for the good guys to win.

    What can change the nature of a Phalla?

    YES! Tagline right there.

    edit- and Toxic, I enjoyed it. The mechanics were good and the narration was also pretty good.

    Winrars!

    Narrations were awesome, and the mechanics definitely had me paranoid.

    Oh eecc, fun times we had last night :).

    Very good, very tense.

    In the end, we figured that the zombies were hitting the mason network. We were kinda worried Arkas was converted, but there was no real opportunity for it other than last night, so we trusted him.

    The narrations are excellent as always. I kinda feel bad though that I'm undoing the work I laid down in the previous zombie phalla. :lol:

    I thought it was quite good. Loved the narration, and working people's names in.

    The mechanics were great - they ended up truly inspiring paranoia which I think really added to it. You should see some of the PMs that were sent around on the last day - at one stage, someone suggested that I should snipe off B:L or Arkas...

    In terms of balance, it worked out quite well, since it came down to the last day. I think what swayed it in our favour at the very end was that there were enough kills vs number of people *not* in a network... so we voted Sheep, let the zombies have Rainfall, and vig'd weatheredclown.

    Had the dice rolled the other way and B:L/Arkas ended up being converted.... well.. zombie win.

    Edit:
    Oh eecc, fun times we had last night :).

    Hahaha, I am so glad I convinced myself that you were being overly paranoid. Although admittedly, you could've been absolutely right...

    For the time I was around it was awesome. The narrations were really good. Like others said, it did a really good job of inspiring the kind of paranoia you would expect in a zombie apocalypse.

    Huzza for my first phalla win!

    I'm glad you liked the narration for the game. That was honestly he hardest part for me. As for working in the names, I give all credit for that idea to LaOs. He used it in the 1st Jonesphallaburg game, I had to do the same.

    Here are some of the other PMs I sent out.

    Day 2 Result

    Masons
    - The lord came to you two in a vision, telling that James McGruff was one of his sheep that will need your guidance to protect him fro evil.

    Gruff is a villager.

    Seer -
    You were able to visit Thomas Theroo that morning before making your way to the court house. He was in perfect health.

    Thetheroo was seered as a villager

    Zombies -
    You both were able to find Thomas Theroo walking in an alley heading towards the court house that night. You both were able to take a bite out of him before he fought you off.

    tehcoolryan wandered towards the court house in search of food while weatheredclown went the other direction.

    tehcoolryan was gunned down by the towns folk while Thetheroo became a zombie

    Day 3 Results

    Seer -
    You were able to make to the church during the day time to drop off some medicine to the people stay there. Reverend Lovejoy greeted you at the heavy wooden doors. You had some time before nightfall and was able to give him a clean bill of health.

    iamtheaznman is a mason, Reverend Lovejoy, and a villager.

    Day 4

    Vig -
    From across the street you watched the zombie break into the court house. You positioned yourself so you hade a clear shot the back alley, the only place that those monster could exit from. You shot the first person to walk out.

    You killed FrostMist.

    Woo! Yes! Yes! Yessss!

    I think this is one of two phalla in which I have not died.

    I could be miscalculating, though. But I'm pretty sure.

    We killed the last zombie, which means they didn't get their extra kill. Reading comprehension!

    I second what was said about the fake-realistic names in the narrations. Those were awesome. A very nice touch. After results each day, part of me always wanted to mention it, but I always ended up getting sidetracked due to the actual results.

    I really enjoyed the game. Good naration, and the mechanics kept the main thread intersting, which is key.

    I think it was a good use of the conversion mechanic, which can be tricky to use without destabilizing the game. I really thought we were doomed about mid way through. It served to stoke the rampant paranoia that all us villagers felt, which was perfect for a zombie themed game.

    Thanks for running it Toxic.
