Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Mini-phalla] Dystopia; V for Victory (Anarchists win!)
BurnageJust a harmless flowerRegistered Userregular
It is a dark and stormy night in Britain, and the clocks have just struck 13.
The year is 2027, and throughout the past two decades terrorism became increasingly common world-wide. Almost by necessity, our leaders had to restrict our civil liberties more and more, for our ultimate protection. The rising political star in Britain was born as â€˜Norsefireâ€™, but by this point has merely become known as â€˜The Partyâ€™. The Party that protects you. The Party that keeps your family safe. The Party of Big Brother, and Father. Always repeating its mantra;
WAR IS PEACE
SLAVERY IS FREEDOM
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
The Party rules Britain with an iron fist, and society is thankful for it. Under the Partyâ€™s rule, unorthodox thinking and excess emotionality have been outlawed; hundreds of sense-offenders and thought-criminals are executed daily, and thousands of works of art and literature burned. There is no space for emotionality in the Party. Thanks to the invention of drugs such as Soma and Prozium, the proles are indoctrinated into the unfeeling reality of modern-day Britain. For those who still resist the love of Big Brother and Father, the love of the Grammaton Clerics descends upon them. Where the Grammaton Clerics and Secret Police take offenders is classified, but the public are to be assured that since no-one ever comes back from it, it must be akin to paradise.
The two branches of the Party â€“ the half dedicated to Big Brother, and the half dedicated to Father â€“ have become increasingly isolated from each other, although the public is to be assured that this is a sign of Big Brother and Father expressing their love for one another.
There is no dis-satisfaction with the current state of affairs in Britain. There are none who would wish to rebel against the Party.
Or are there?
In the streets of London, the underground is about to rise.
This is a phalla for 21 players.
Whatâ€™s a phalla?
A game based on the party game Mafia. Check this thread for more info on the basic rules.
Same as normal; no direct quoting of any parts of your PM (including linking any images). You may not communicate with any dead players regarding the phalla, and you must send me the link to any proboards you may or may not set up.
!Sign up like so. Any colour will do. Except for pink. The Party disapproves of pink.
Vote in red each night for a player that you wish to send to Room 101; retractions are not necessary. If you wish, instead of voting for a player you may !abstain.
This will be a multi-faction phalla. There may be a few surprises along the way, or there may not be.
I do not mind at all if allied players quote their role PMs to one another.
