[MiniPhalla] Antarctic Research Station - GAME OVER - FLAWLESS MAFIA VICTORY

Antarctic Research Station

Some years in the near future, at a research station in Antarctica, a tragic mistake is about to happen. The property of an multinational corporation, clandestine research is carried out here on certain things deemed too dangerous to be experimented with elsewhere. As the unfortunate staff are to find out, this caution was well warranted.


This is a Phalla, the Penny Arcade version of the party game Mafia. This in particular is a Mini Phalla, which is smaller and shorter in duration than a Main Phalla. Confused? The CF Phalla Signup List will probably prove informative.

The usual Phalla rules apply. No screen caps, no anonymous contact, no dead people talking to the living, no quoting/sharing of PMs from from the host, etc. Also, don't forget to PM me the URL of all proboards! And for the love of fucking God, play to your win condition or I will break you in half.

Vote close is at 10PM EDT. Narration will follow as soon as possible and will be posted no later than 12pm EDT.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All posts/votes made after vote close and before narration is posted will be ignored.



This is an intermediate mechanics game.

Every day, you must vote for one person in bold red to be eliminated from the game. Retractions are unnecessary unless you are specifically abstaining for the time being. Votes in posts that have been edited will not be counted.

Aside from the initial distribution of roles, the RNG will not be used at all in this game. Vote ties will be resolved by the death of the first person to reach the total.

Action Order:
Vote > Various Actions > Kills

Inactivity:
There are NO activity requirements for this game.


Villager PM:
You are...
...a normal researcher. You're one of the countless researchers the corporation employs around the world in labs just like this. Unlike the others, you work in one of their clandestine divisions, researching things Man Was Not Meant To Know. Looks like it's coming back to bite you in the ass now, isn't it?

Abilities:
Brainpower - You have the ability to observe your fellow researchers and use intuition, deduction, your feelings, and general public discourse to identify which of your colleagues aren't quite right any more.

Win Condition:
End the quarantine by destroying the hidden menace.


Clarifications:
As typical, please ask all clarifications in bold orange.

1) If you had the good fortune to be masoned with someone, they are guaranteed to share your win condition.
(The Anti-Vlad Clarification.)

2) There are vanillagers in this game.

3) There are no thralls or millers of any kind.

4) Are there conversions?
Clarification denied. (Read the OP more closely.)

5) What color are the bad guys?
You're dumb, Dunadumb. (Standard colors.)

6) Is this unique or based on a source?
Maybe you should do some research this time, Soda. (You don't need to know anything coming in.)

7) Event triggers?
Technically, yes, but there's only a couple and they're relatively minor in the grand scale of things.

There's no event trigger that will cause the research station to be launched into outer space, for example.

8) Mechanic seer?
Clarification denied.

9) Win condition changes?
I already denied conversions, but said to read the goddamn OP Soda!

10) Was the Villager PM sent directly to villagers?
Yes.

11) Are knowledge of real world science/logic necessary?
I placed no special requirements on knowledge to be able to piece together the mechanics, only reading comprehension.

ie, knowing what state is required for sublimation is nice and all, but it isn't going to help you here.

    Intelligence, critical thinking, and analysis are important.

    Reading comprehension is, too, if we want to avoid a repeat of my last game.

    Can we trust everything you say in narration or pms

    Are there event triggers in the game?

    Is there a mechanic seer in the game?


    You already said that if you are masoned with someone you share a win condition, can win conditions change (which obviously would mean it would change for everyone masoned)

    Also I am guessing that based on the fact that Spec says that if you are masoned with someone you share a win condition. When thinking about conversions, that means:

    A) there are no masons in this game, so conversions do not effect that statement
    B) if one mason is converted they are all converted
    c) there are no conversions in this game
