    I actually kinda suspected Burnage, for obvious reasons.

    (He PMed me for info. I was a fool and trusted him.)

    Psh, burnage was just a regular Arcadian Psychic, who was supposed to be working with me to kill the Renegade, not getting aide from the Renegade.

    To be fair, I used Rend to kill two domarians and I ordered the assassination of a disciple. So go me?

    We could have had this done with much sooner.

    Although, I like how you lost this way.

    This was the bestest game ever

    I was going to post more, but I guess there's really no point. The first sentence perfectly sums up my feelings. :D

    Oh come on. Rend took a solo role (he wasn't in any way associated with the disciples, apparently) and turned it into a resounding victory.

    I believe that calls for worship, not grudging.

    Damn't Trust and Skid.

    I hate you all.

    I didn't do anything! I deny any involvement!

    Well done to take your outed status and stay alive and almost win like you did though, aznman. Sorry about lying to you...but you spent so long telling me I had to be psychic, I would have been foolish not to play into that :(

    I'm also kinda mad at SkyCaptain for not guarding me like we planned.

    But on the other hand we did get to use Fido, so I guess it was almost okay.

    Seriously, though, my aim sucked this game. At one point my list of suspects was Rend, aznman, Ebfan, and TheLaw. I somehow started the bandwagon on the one innocent person on that list. At another point El Skid was going to seer Ebfan, but I told him to seer Kay instead.

    I did pretty bad.

    Like I said before, this was my first Phalla and I had I thought it was just a great game. I am a little upset that we lost, but honestly it really could have gone either way there at the end. At least I survived, I guess.

    Edcrab: Great game. There were a lot of really interesting mechanics in it that kept us guessing the whole time. I can't wait until your main game (assuming the scifi/psychic game will be the same thing, as the "Prelude to Phallakinetic" and the narrations appear to be indicating).

    azn: It was fun. Too bad we chose poorly at the end.

    El Skid: I have to hand it to you, you really had us guessing the whole time at the end. To answer your question, yes we were told that the Renegade was dead. I actually had my suspicions that he was alive at around day two or three, but we never truly knew.

    Trust: :(

    Burnage: I am really sorry for how that played out. In retrospect it might have been better to simply form an alliance of some sort but at the time we really felt like trying for a conversion was going to be the best strategy. Unfortunately the RNG did not agree with us. Looking back on it, it seems like you probably had the best grasp of your winning scenarios of anybody. It would have been really interesting to see how this game would have played out had we converted you instead of killing you.

    I genuinely thought that you would attempt to convert me, so I was surprised to see you kill me instead. :P I didn't imagine that your kill power might be a joint conversion.

    This game had some crazy mechanics, and if there's any chance I can sign up early for Edcrab's main game I would jump at it.

    Well Ebfan you picked a heck of a game to start with. Thank you Edcrab for the awesome game. This is up there with Suikoden and Galactic Senate as one of my favorites.

    And thanks to Quoth for the narrations. They were superb.

    The problem with telling players that they get a giant mecha of doom if they die: They want to kill their own faction off just so they can have a giant mecha of doom.

    Apparently.

    We already had an agreement that if two of us died, the third would try to get themselves killed. SkyCaptain just went a little further :P

    Well, technically we were only told that we would re-enter the game, and that whoever killed us made an unwise move. We weren't specifically aware of GIANT ROBOT OF DOOM until you guys were.

    But we all wanted to know what happened anyways :P.

    I think that was the point Skid was trying to make.

    Anyway. Even though things didn't quite work out for me, i had an immensely fun time in this game. I look forward to the main game when it happens. This game was awesome, thanks edcrab. (I wish I could lime harder)

    Super extra soecuak thanks to skid, and burnage, as well as Crimsoncoyote and even iamtheaznman. I couldn't have done it without skid and burnage, and crimson's insights were an immense help.

    And thanks, aznman, for being a disciple of mine, since I didn't die when I asked for help killing nocturne.

    I'm just amazed that nobody attacked or seered you. All those mechanics that were never even used!

    Incidentally, everyone, I welcome suggestions of what to use in the next iteration, hit me up with PMs sometime. What could've been better? What would you add, either because it's an improvement or just because it's awesome?

    For example, what did people think of the %-attack mechanic? Or the fact that the RNG had such an impact on abilities as a whole?

    I was considering hitpoints in the upcoming instalment, but maybe percentages are the way to go.

    Gotta be honest, I dislike hitpoints. It won't completely turn me away from a game, but given the choice between HP and RNGs, I'm more likely to go with RNG. Seems a bit cleaner imo.

    Also, who guarded Ebfan? Because that person... that person needs death.

    I would have liked confirmation that I'd placed an attack, even if it failed. I kept wondering if you'd gotten my orders...

    Other than that, I like the mechanic, but wasn't in the game long enough to really try stacking it with anyone.

    Yeah, with hindsight a "you attack X but they survive" PM would've been quick and easy to do. Duly noted!

    Speaking of which, I think people with less impressive abilities will be able to attack and use an ability next time. It'll make dogpiling a target easier.

    Oh, and as Rend and a couple of others were telling me, true guards etc. kind of undermined the whole idea of co-operating. Maybe next time they'll reduce the overall percentage by 100% or something. That way mass attacks or boosted attacks would still have a chance to bypass it.
