[Mini] Demon: The Phallen: Game Over - Ravener + Earthbound Win

edited October 2009 in Critical Failures
Him the Almighty Power
Hurled headlong flaming from th' ethereal sky
With hideous ruin and combustion down
To bottomless perdition, there to dwell
In adamantine chains and penal fire,
Who durst defy th' Omnipotent to arms.

-John Milton, Paradise Lost

Demon: The Phallen
demonpentacle3.gif

This is a mini-phalla for 25 players. Factions and the possibility of conversions are at play. If you don't like either, you are welcome not to play. This is also a mechanics test for The Life and Times of Detective John Munch. You have been warned.

So what's this demon thing?
Simply put, it's another of the supernatural entities from what's colloquially called the Old World of Darkness. You may be more familiar with the most famous, Vampire: The Masquerade, from whence cj iwakura's Gehenna and Ahava and Krata's Vampire Dominance sprung.

Demon was released at the very tail end of the Old World of Darkness, as the world literally chained to a doomsday clock churned towards apocalypse and oblivion. It's a loose retelling of John Milton's Paradise Lost.

That is to say, demons are fallen angels who believe they need to guard and guide mankind lest the world be lost to pain and damnation. Some might call them devil or demon (and in the descriptions of the Earthbound, demons turned to the service of mislead tyrants like Asmodeus who opppose Lucifer, they might be true.) Demon, devil, once-angel, no matter the term, all are given power by faith, the belief in their divinity given by other demons and humankind.

People familiar with the setting, a warning: I have greatly simplified the houses for clarity of play. Slayers and Scourges do not even exist.

    The usual phalla stuff:
    If you are dead, you may not speak to any other player, LIVING OR DEAD, about the game. One dead post is acceptable, but it should be nothing more than “Oh crap I died.” or some variant thereof.
    No anonymous contact. All PMs or messages outside of the forums must be done with full disclosure of your forum identity.
    You may not use screenshots to “prove” anything to anyone.
    You are free to create Proboards, make sure you give me access so I can examine them. You can send in orders by Proboard; if there is a conflict, PMs override the Proboard.
    No direct sharing of role PMs.

    Vote to lynch someone in red.
    Ask for clarifications in orange.
    Show your faith for someone in yellow.

    Wait, what? Faith?

    Of course. Demons run on Faith. Without it you can't do many supernatural things you need to do in the antebellum for God's Final War. Problem is, you can't just get Faith. It needs to be given.

    So! Everyone votes for another person to give their faith to that day. Your faith will give that person a measure of power. And they can use that power to do things. Here's the catch: you can't give yourself, or your friends (anyone you're masoned with), your faith. Also, faith votes count for inactivity. If you don't give a little faith every day, you will be replaced. It's not a valid strategy.

    So when's the vote deadline?

    Faith can only be given every day until 6 pm EST (11 pm BST/GMT.) At that time, I will send everyone the final counts of how much faith they have received. If for some reason you won't be around between 6 pm and midnight EST (the deadline for orders and the vote to lynch), you can always send in contingency orders.

    Each day's narration will be accompanied with the numbers for 80% of the remaining players, 50% of the remaining players, and 20% of the remaining players. I will be rounding up for these numbers.

    "Villager" role PM:
    You know, the world is ending. Seriously. Someone ran into the hall the other day, said they'd seen that angel in Angelus Rosedale weeping tears of blood. Usual hue and cry, all that, then someone else said they'd seen Sin shitting puppies downtown, too. The signs just piled up and up. Eventually, someone took out the faith-circles of all the higher up. Political intrigue? Terrorism? Whatever the reason, thirty dead worshipers later, LA's demon government was little more than dust on the wind.

    And, same as it did way back when when you were fighting against God, Gabriel, and all the others at Lucifer's side, things fell apart pretty quickly. It was like the Abyss again - all death and darkness, no coordination, no talking. Everyone got all cliquey. End of the world and no one to throw a party.

    But, oh well, it's an opportunity. Take over LA, sort out the rest of the Fallen, and you can use the faith here to take over the Southwestern Seaboard. You figure, if the Apocalypse is coming, you and friends might make good saviours - or Horsemen.

    Abilities:

    Lynch - collectively, you can all find one demon a little repulsive, a little creepy, a little dangerous. Maybe just weird. Whatever the reason, you're pretty sure you can overpower the guy, take him down, eat his soul. Erase him.

    Faith - Yeah, okay, normally no demon would hand out their faith unless pressed by Lucifer himself, or some silly idiot with an Abrams tank, or whatever. But the end of days means odd things, and despite your hunger for power, you still want to get a bit closer. Yeah, you can see others doing it - swapping that ghostly-white divinity stuff. Demon sex for the Hollywood set. Guess you had better do it too.

    Hmm, come to think of it, you can see a few people who remind you of how things used to be. Old houses of purpose and intent, not these modern factions of philosophy and uselessness. Maybe it's worth bringing those back. Maybe they will come back.

    Victory Condition:

    You can win with either your faction (your initial masoned group) or your house by simple majority. You will lose, however, if Lucifer is destroyed.

    Other clarifications will go here.

    A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time.
    The mind is its own place, and in it self
    Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n.
    What matter where, if I be still the same,
    And what I should be, all but less then he
    Whom Thunder hath made greater? Here at least
    We shall be free; th' Almighty hath not built
    Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
    Here we may reign secure, and in my choice
    To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
    Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav'n.
