(A PHALLA by Terrendos)
(OP format stolen from MrBlarney because he's a handsome devil)

Good, everyone's here. Into my office, now. This is important.

As you may have heard, our undercovers have tipped us off. There's a group of moles in the Santa Barbara Police Department. They may be here even now, listening in. Needless to say, this is now our top priority. All other cases have been put on hold until we solve this thing. I've issued a full lockdown of the entire department to prevent anyone from escaping. We have to nail these guys, and we need to do it ASAP. Consider them armed and extremely dangerous.

Ah, good, Mr. Spencer, you and Mr. Guster will be heading up the investigation. If you want to get paid, you'll need to find every last one of these infiltrators.

Oh, the telephone? Yes, Mr. Mayor, I can assure you, the matter is well in hand. We have our best assets working on it.

What are you waiting for? Go!

General Overview

It's a PHALLA! By now you should be familiar with them, if not you should go HERE. It's the Penny Arcade version of Mafia. Head to the link for more information.

This particular Phalla is based on the USA Network show Psych, involving a fake psychic detective who solves murders for the Santa Barbara Police Department. The show thrives on the quick wit and interplay between the main cast. This Phalla will have neither.

This is the first Phalla I've ever run, so it'll be very straightforward. Also, that means go easy on me.

Voting

Each day, players must vote for one player to be placed under arrest by my, Police Chief Karen Vick. Vote for the player who you find most suspicious in bold red with "!vote for <player name>" or similar phrase. You may retract a vote by posting "!retract vote for <player name>" or similar phrase in bold lime or change your vote by making another one in bold red. The player who receives the most votes will be arrested.

Voting will close each day at midnight (12:00 AM) EST. If it's not in by 11:59:59 then it doesn't count.


Order of Operations

The vote goes first, then all secondary powers simultaneously.


Signing Up

Sign up with the phrase "I !sign up" or similar phrase in bold lime to ensure that your intent to play is acknowledged. Right now I am looking for 20-25 players, but in the (hilariously slim) odds that I get more, I will consider up to 30. You may also !RESERVE UP IN BOLD MAGENTA.


Inactivity

It is expected that players make at least two posts and a vote each day to be considered sufficiently active (one post can include your vote post). Inactivus hungers, and I will be ruthless. Failure to meet these requirements once will result in the issue of a warning. Thereafter, any (even non-consecutive) failure to meet these requirements will result in your replacement. If there's no suitable replacements, that role is removed from the game entirely.


Clarifications

Ask me questions in BOLD ORANGE. I respect the right to deny you precious information for whatever reason I see fit.


Other Rules

Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of host-provided PMs via screenshots and direct quotation. The same goes for personal pages - no screenshots or sharing of links. However, information may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing. No anonymous contact is allowed. All messages must be traceable to a player in the game.

Link me to any proboards and provide me full access, lest ye get the back o' me right hand.


Questions and Answers

What happens in the event of a tied vote?

Clarification denied.

Are there thralls?

No.


Are there gonna be named roles and will the mafia at least have cover (name)roles or will it just be villagers + Shawn, Gus and Company? With the cover roles for the mafia being vanillager?

There will be named roles. The mafia will not have named roles. I may change my mind and give meaningless names to the mafia if I'm feeling whimsical tomorrow but they will be worthless and unrelated to the show. There will be a Vanillager role post in the OP.

Will there be any neutrals or psycho killers? Or are you saving Yin and Yang for next season?

Clarification denied.

    More proper form (I think...)

    Here's a noob question: What's a thrall do and are they connected to anyone, (cuz of the name)?
    Or is this all there is to it:
    Thrall - an evil person who appears to be good when seered. Sometimes revealed to be evil upon death.

    That's pretty much it. They're typically a member of the mafia but they show up as a villager when seered.

    People like to know ahead of time if they're in the game because that tends to let any network that forms know whether or not they need to segment in order to prevent a thrall from leaking the names of all the specials.

    If the Mafia win, will they make Shawn confess that he's not psychic? Or would that be more for a Lassie faction win?

    I like giving Terrendos excuses to say...
