    The sequel totally needs to be the Ouendan VS the EBA.

    Well damn

    I think I changed the kill order from B:L to someone else on multiple occasions and from matt to someone else at least once

    and I admitted that the bad guys died from the vote on like day 2

    and I did not need to change anything in that narration I quoted but I did so anyway

    Good game for me

    I just had to include stop the music

    So why did I end up removing that word and a half in the narration?

    I just don't know

    Gumpy cheated his way out of the post restriction but I didn't have enough basis to eliminate him because someone could still have noticed he changed the narration quote.

    Thank god you did, Andrew.

    To be fair that post restriction was the equivalent of outing myself in the thread.

    There was near to no basis of saying that when it wasn't in a quote, and with a game where the amount of people posting in the thread was about three, there was no excuse to suddenly start going all evil >:

    Which I think was intended; the "post restriction" mechanic seems to have been a minor seer, forcing the target to post in character on the next day. Unless I'm misunderstanding the intent/effect.

    Well it was damn effective

    And to be honest I think it was more effective then a standard seer, as it allowed the special who used it to utterly rain on my parade while having hard evidence of my misdeeds in the thread

    Yeah, but think of all the post restrictions we've seen in other phallas where the bad guys are able to make random targets seem evil -- anything like that will never be conclusive without the special outing themselves.

    To be honest I think it was more the BOLD BLACK TEXT then what I was actually required to write in it

    I would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for you meddling post restrictions

    The post restriction was indeed intended to be form of public seering. Depending on the role of the person targetted they would have had to put something glaringly obvious in their post that would give away their role. You wouldn't be complaining if B:L had been hit and had to type EBA slogans in bold yellow text, would you Gumpy?

    No I would not have complained about that

    But then again I let B:L live and was thanked with death

    Was it the whole 'If B:L is alive late in the game he must be evil because everyone kills B:L' trick that was being attempted there?

    I was hoping that he would eat a late game bandwagon, letting him leave victorious and us without worrying about the vote

    But he just happened to be an agent who did not win when voted out

    shucks

    Actually I'm immune to the vote. :whistle:

    Looking at it balance wise, if the specials were actually in play it would look bad for the rhombulans. Except they weren't so it worked out in the end. 8-)

    And Gumpy I let you live too until you decided to bandwagon me! Who stabbed who?

    Day 7 - Epilogue

    If you’re still here to read this, I commend you. We have all been through many hardships and lost many of our members, but in the end we managed to destroy the Rhombulan threat, together, as a team, you did well!

    So, as the EBA forum project draws to a close, we have collected progress reports on our surviving members and how we’ve managed to help.

    Captain Brooke (Sticks) flaunted his new found wealth, buying a magnificent yacht to sail the seas in luxury. A few months into his journey, however, he received an unexpected visit from his ex-crew. Seems they had taken to a steady career in piracy during their Captain’s absence. And they wanted him to take a little stroll down the plank.
    Spoiler:

    Lucy (Warban), who suppressed the music within her out of sheer fear of the Rhombulans, grew up to be a wonderful young woman. Finally seeing her father again put her whole life into perspective, and the experience brought her a new hero and inspiration. Every Saturday she visits the statue that was once Agent Derek, leaving a single flower each time.
    Spoiler:

    Max the Cat (Nitsua) finished his plate of fish too fast, learning a valuable lesson that nothing lasts forever. He grew to share a deep bond with the baby he had protected to get it though, and the friendship the two had lasted for many years longer than a couple of sardines.
    Spoiler:

    Isabella Carrington (GrimmyTOA), while initially returning in full force to the world of celebrity, fell afoul of both the media and the public when it was revealed that she had deliberately abandoned her sister on the island so that the spotlight would be on her more often. Completely ostracised, she now lives in a quiet mountain village, waiting for the day when her infamy would be forgotten.

    Norma Carrington (Andrew Rayn) on the other hand was praised as a hero when it was reported that she had been the one to organise the mass exodus into the City Square, saving countless lives in the process. She has since founded a major charity to support those who were bereaved during the attacks. She has forgiven Isabella, but doesn’t believe her sister would ever understand that.
    Spoiler:

    Chris Silverscreen (Stew_Stick) followed the success of Romancing Meowzilla with a documentary about the Rhombulan attacks, entitled “The Day the Music Survived”. It was well received by some, but others criticised him exploiting such a sensitive topic so shortly after it happened. Never-the-less, over time it became a classic along the same lines as Schindler’s List and became synonymous with the alien attacks for future generations.
    Spoiler:

    Colonel Bob (Keika) and his wife were arrested for tax fraud and their properties were repossessed by the government. His mansion was refitted to become a memorial museum for the alien attacks. He is once again trying to kick start a career, but instead of digging for oil he is attempting to create a new type of solar power cell. Only time will tell if he is successful.
    Spoiler:

    Jake (Jayson Four) defeated the zombie overlord and got a promotion to an executive position in the Sarcastic Nuts & Nuts company. Subsequently, Nut sales worldwide have increased 10 fold, one of the few industries to completely ignore the effects of the global economic downturn. He still doesn’t smile though. That wouldn’t be appropriate.
    Spoiler:

    Amanda (scrivenerjones) got through an audition for “Elite Beat Agents – The Musical” and was cast as Agent J, which most felt that, while a strange choice of role, she performed exceedingly well in. Agent J even appeared onstage at the premiere to offer her a bouquet of flowers, applauding her on her amazing portrayal.
    Spoiler:

    Leonardo (Romantic Undead) continued to be a celebrated artist, not only painting a portrait of (his bride-to-be) the beautiful Mona Lisa, but branching out into large scale public art and music. He is currently drawing up the schematics for a firework portrait the the Elite Beat Agents to be displayed at the next New Years celebrations.
    Spoiler:

    The Agents, J (B:L) and Morris (Matatat) decided that they would retire from the Elite Beat Agents, their work complete. They had seen that day in the City Square that everybody had the power of the beat deep inside them, and that they would all find ways to help themselves with the power, without the need for a group of dancing men in suits. Currently based in Hawaii, they have reported to me saying they are as happy as ever.
    Spoiler:
    Spoiler:

    Oh yes, and me. With the department of Elite Beats now shutting down, I’m going to retire and indulge in one of my life-long passions; furniture restoration. So, if you ever break one of the legs on your antique table...

    ...well, you know what to shout.

    MVPs

    B:L, for executing quite an impressive last second vote swing to win the game. And also for posting in the thread pretty consistently throughout and not drawing any suspicion for actually paying attention to the game. A class act.

    Also Warban, for rolling such a sweet and innocent role as Lucy and yet having the tenacity to use his usual tactic of pathologically lying to the entire thread in order to get things done. Bravo.

    THANKS FOR PLAYING!

    This.

    This is how you end a phalla.


    Thanks for running and planning an amazing game, Daius. It was fun, quirky, and very thematic.

    The only complaint is that Derek is in the losers section. We EBA win together!

    I really enjoyed this game... though I am curious about something: Who chose me to actually get what I was going for? I was totally not expecting to win in the same night Warban did. I kept up with the thread even after I got out. The narrations each night were amazing and I had a lot of fun seeing how the voting was going. Thanks Daius for a great mini!

    Each night the EBA selected one player to "help" and then the village selected by vote a second player for them to help. (The help itself was essentially a public seer with death, with the quirk that it was a win for the player helped if they were village aligned.)

    So you have B:L and crew to thank for your victory.

    I thought it was only a real win if the character had a really important situation with which they needed help. For instance, keeping a baby alive was more important that finding buried treasure (as in the epilogue, that character ended up biting it). So while you temporarily thought it was a win, you actually lost in the end, because being greedy is bad. And it was way more important to save people's lives by getting rid of the Rhombulans, so those that were not helped before the EBA won the game had good endings.
