Persona: Hall α

A MrBlarney and Infidel Production
with special thanks to Ardor
Based off the Persona series of games by ATLUS


Persona 3 - Tartarus (Block 3 - Yabbashah)

Scenario
Angeles Bay University is a modern-day campus located in the coastal metropolis of Angeles Bay. Despite the fact that it has only been established for less than a decade, it has quickly become a leader in a variety of academic fields. In the early morning of December 28, 2011, a student's body is discovered in his dorm room located in Hall α. The wing of the hall is shut down for investigation, ultimately without satisfying conclusions. It is declared publicly that the student was indeed murdered, but details are sparse regarding the incident, and rumors spread about the student's death. Nobody is held responsible for the crime and the wing continues to lay vacant until the summer. But the fall season of 2012 rolls around and the hall wing is reopened for new residents. Rumors from the winter begin to bubble up again regarding Hall α - for these new students, the new semester will bring forth unexpected challenges that prove some of these rumors true and turn their lives in a new direction.

This is a Phalla game, Penny Arcade Forum's version of the party game Mafia. If this is your first game, it will be informative to visit the linked topic for some background information.

Genre: Traditional (Village vs. Mafia), Battle Mechanics w/ Personal Pages


Voting
Each day, players must vote for one player to be eliminated from the game. 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 eliminated. Should there be a tie in the vote, then a random player among those tied will be eliminated.

Voting will close each day at 9PM PDT / 11PM CDT / 4AM UTC; any actions before the hour (x:59) will count, any actions on the hour and later (x:00) will not.


Persona and Ability System
In addition to the vote, each player has at least one Persona under their control with abilities that may be used for a variety of effects. Each player may access and set these abilities using their Persona page, which will be generated and provided at the start of the game.
personasample.png
Using these pages, players may check their status, change their personas, set actions and targets, and view history of previous days. More details regarding the use of the system will be detailed in a post below.

Elements and Resistances
Abilities may have one of eight elemental properties associated with it: Physical, Fire, Ice, Elec, Wind, Light, Dark, or Almighty. Personas may have different resistances to each element except for Almighty: no persona has a weakness or strength against Almighty-element attacks. The different resistance levels are, as follows:
  • Weak (Wk) - The player takes twice the normal damage from these-type attacks.
  • Neutral (-) - The player takes normal damage from these-type attacks.
  • Strong (Str) - The player takes half the normal damage from these-type attacks.
  • Null (Nul) - The player takes no damage from these-type attacks.
  • Repel (Rpl) - The player reflects damage back to the attacker with the same elemental typing. (The reflected damage is affected by resistances; two Personas with Repel effectively creates a Null.)
  • Drain (Drn) - The player’s health increases by half the normal damage from these-type attacks.
For Light and Dark element attacks, resistance levels work a bit differently:
  • Weak (Wk) - The player has twice the chance to be hit with these-type attacks.
  • Neutral (-) - The player has the normal chance to be hit with these-type attacks.
  • Strong (Str) - The player has half the chance to be hit with these-type attacks.
  • Null (Nul) - The player has immunity against these-type attacks.
  • Repel (Rpl) - The player reflects these-type attacks back to the attacker with the same elemental typing. (The reflected damage is affected by resistances; two Personas with Repel effectively creates a Null.)

Status Ailments and Conditions
There are four bad status ailments in the game:
  • Enervation: The player becomes weakened. Attack and defense are both reduced by 30%.
  • Panic: The player’s Persona becomes uncontrollable. A random active Persona ability will be used on a random target each night, if possible. If no abilities can be used, then a regular attack hits a random target instead. If the player has multiple Personas, then they cannot be switched.
  • Silence: No magical abilities may be used by the player. Physical abilities can still be used, and passive abilities continue to operate.
  • Poison: The player loses HP each night equal to 10% of their maximum HP.
All status ailments will take effect at the end of the day they are inflicted and will remain in place permanently unless cured by the skill Salvation or Amrita. These curative skills will also prevent bad status from being taken on the day that they are cast. Only one bad status effect is kept at a time. In case of multiple possible status inflictions, the following order is used: Enervation overrides Panic overrides Silence overrides Poison.

Offensive and defensive capacities can also be affected by certain support spells. Modifications from these support spells are also permanent in nature until modified by another spell.

Common Abilities
Each player has a set of three actions that they may perform regardless of Persona.
  • Attack - Deal 20 Physical damage to a single target. 10% Critical Rate.

Note: There are skills that are not included in this list that may be known by certain Personas, and not all skills on this list are guaranteed to show up.

Order of Resolution
Abilities are resolved each day in four phases:
  • Phase I: Resolve Tetra Break, Makara Break, Dekunda, Dekaja
  • Phase II: Resolve all damage from applicable actions and abilities.
  • Phase III: Resolve Buffs, Debuffs, Walls, Breaks, Endure, Regenerate, and Invigorate
  • Phase IV: Resolve infliction or curing of bad status ailments, heal damage
Eliminated players (including those via the vote) are removed from the game after all phases are resolved - this means that all actions set at the end of the day will occur and if a player goes into negative HP in Phase II, then they may still survive if healed in Phase IV.

Modifiers to damage are calculated with additive/subtractive effects all resolved first, followed by multiplicative/divisive effects. Recovery and Drain skills are unaffected by modifiers.

Signing Up
Sign up with the phrase "I !sign up" or similar phrase in bold lime or other bright, easily visible color to ensure that your intent to play is acknowledged. A maximum of 132 players will be allowed to play at the game’s start.


Inactivity
It is expected that players make at least two posts and a vote each day to be considered sufficiently active. A warning will be sent on the first day that this requirement is not met, and a replacement will be made on the second consecutive day of inactivity. If there are no replacements available, then the player will be eliminated from the game.


Clarifications
Any questions about the general game rules may be made by highlighting the question in bold orange text. Answers will be posted in the thread and collected in the below section. Player-specific inquiries that are not addressed in the general rules may be asked via PM to GM account Philemon. Please note that there may be mechanics or details which will not be answered and kept hidden until the end of the game.


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.

If any players create "proboards" for private communication, please send a link for it to the host.


Questions and Answers
Q: Is there xp? Are there items?
A: No to both questions.

Q: Can Persona be traded? Can Persona be merged?
A: There are no trading or fusion mechanics in this game.

Q: Is it possible to get left without a Persona?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: HP and SP are Persona independent and tied to your role, correct? What is the average HP and SP in the game?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: Is there vote immunity?
A: No. The vote is absolute.

Q: Are all communications from the host trustwothy?
A: Yes.

Q: To make sure I understand the order of actions properly, a player who is voted out gets one last action before they are eliminated?
A: More or less. Sometimes, it's one last action as they are eliminated.

Q: I am to understand that Persona switching is instantaneous, correct?
A: Yes. It's done during the day and so is effectively instantaneous.

Q: What is the rate of skill learning?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: Let's say Tetrakarn and Tetra Break are cast on the same target on the same night. What happens? By OOA, it seems Tetra Break hits first, which does nothing since the target has no status, then Tetrakarn is applied to buff the target for the following night?
A: That is correct. Because of the phases (and how they are connected), to break a Tetrakarn, you cast Tetra Break on the day after it is set.

Q: For skills such as Tarunda and Rakunda which cannot be stacked, what has priority? If someone has neutral status, and both spells are cast on them in the same night, what happens? If someone already had one of those buffs on him and someone attempts to cast another, what happens? Does the new spell fizzle, override the other, or something else?
A: Attack and defense buffs can have at most one level each way, and attack and defense buffs are independent of one another. So for instance, if someone has Tarukaja and Tarunda cast on them at the same day, the net effect is no modification. In the case that a player is targeted by multiple copies of the same buff/debuff, then only one is counted in the net result. In any situation where a "-kaja" and "-nda" effect are in the same place, the net total is a neutral result. So in the case where someone has two Tarunda and one Tarukaja cast on them, the net result is no buff/debuff. And someone who is already in a defense-down state has Tarunda and Tarukaja cast on them, the result is a neutral defense.

Q: Does Heat Riser count as a single spell or does it split into Tarukaja and Rakukaja components?
A: It is effectively split, the attack and defense buff and debuff act independently of each other no matter the source.

Q: Are the Counter series of skills affected by buffs? If you had Rakunda on you, do you Counter for the damage you take or the base damage? Same for Tarukaja. Counter the base damage or enhanced damage?
A: Counter %s are static. The base damage is calculated for an attack, then applied with resistances. The counter will be the same damage, then applied for the resistances of the attacker.

Q: How do the multiplicative/divisive effects work in conjunction? Say I have Phys Boost + Tarunda. Is this Base * 1.2 * 0.8 or Base * (1 + 0.2 - 0.2)?
A: Skills with #x multipliers are multiplicative, skills with #% increases and decreases are additive. Crit is a 2x multiplier.

Q: Is there actually a Defense stat that these buffs are modifying that is subtracted from effects or do they work more around directly affecting how much damage you take?
A: Defense is an additive damage value that opposes the damage done by your attacker. The base stat if you wish to look at it like such is 0.

Q: If someone attacks you with a 100 damage attack:
- They are neutral, you have Rajukaja = you take 80 damage.
- They have Tarunda, you have Rajukaja = you take 60 damage.
- They have Tarukaja, you have Rajukaja = you take 100 damage.
A: That's correct.

Q: Does Endure disappear from your skill list after it has been triggered? Is it possible to learn multiple instances of Endure across different Persona? If yes, will burning one out leave the other intact and ready for use, so to speak?
A: Endure will be consumed after triggering, yes. If you have multiple Personas with Endure, the use of Endure on one will not consume its use on another.

Q: Unless otherwise stated in a skill description, targeting yourself is kosher, correct?
A: Stat blocks will limit the targets for each ability to only valid ones.

Q: Is there natural regeneration of HP/SP?
A: Selecting the "Rest" action will heal some of your SP, but there is no natural HP healing.

Q: Does the healing that comes from absorbing an attack happen when the attack lands (Phase 2), or does it get held off and get applied at the same time as any healing spells would have hit (Phase 4)?
A: It was mentioned, but to make it perfectly clear, the order of resolution is there, yes, but when it comes to damage specifically it doesn't have any particular order. At the end of the day, you are either dead or not. So attacks, healing, etc. all don't matter in order with that concern. What matters is the buffs and elements and such kind of play before it is checked whether you're still alive or not.

Q: What information are we given on who attacked us during the night?
A: Combat reports run both ways.

Q: Are there roles out there that will have to submit orders through Philemon in addition to their profile page?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: Are there roles out there that can direct attack someone, bypassing their Persona?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: Will there be players that can make more than one non-vote action a night (not including persona switches)?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: When someone who has multiple Persona dies, what Persona is listed?
A: Clarification denied!

Q: Are there conversions in play?
A: No.

    Statblocks and You

    This game uses a feature you may be familiar with if you played in Phalla of the Red Dragon or Fire Emblem: Seige of Phallae. Yes, this is another Blarnfidel personal page game.

    The first rule of statblocks is you do not talk about statblocks.

    What this means is that you do not ever ever ever share your links, intentionally or accidentally. The former is very much against the rules (even for networked groups, especially them) and the statblock access is logged to prevent abuse. The latter is very much bad for you.

    Protect your URL.

    If you use a shared/public machine, keep in mind that there is no authentication on these pages. The URL will be in browser history and such, so make sure to clear those if other players will be using the same computer.

    Oh my fucking christ what do I do?

    If you have questions then ask and I'll answer and likely update this post. The statblocks are relatively straight forward compared to Fire Emblem however, since there are no locations to worry about.

    You must use the statblock to send in your actions for the day. They autolock at day close, so make sure you get your orders in on time, no exceptions. You can freely change things as many times as you like during the day, so get some default orders in.

    The actions available are the base for everyone (Attack, Guard, Rest) as well as active-use skills from your current Persona. You must choose the action you wish to perform, and if necessary choose a target as well.

    That is mainly it. Results from the previous night will be displayed on the right and you can review previous days by using the left and right arrows above the report page. The lock icon indicates that orders are no longer changeable.

    If you have multiple Personas, you will see your alternates at the bottom in the five portrait boxes. Click on one to view the details of that Persona, and click the Change button to switch your current Persona to that one. Your current Persona dictates what your base elemental resistances are, your skills available, the passives in effect, etc. Passives and resists from stabled Persona have no gameplay effect. You may change as often as you like.

    As the game progresses, Persona will learn new skills. You are limited to four trained skills per Persona. If you learn a fifth, it will be in a dedicated box awaiting your decision. You will not have access to this new skill until you retrain, by clicking the Learn button or the new skill and then selecting one of your previously known four skills that you wish to replace. There will be a confirmation popup, this choice is immediate and permanent so choose wisely. You will lose the skill if you do not retrain it by the end of the day, and you can discard the new skill if you wish by selecting it twice and confirming.

    I'm still lost, halp!

    All issues with statblocks can be directed to me, by PM or IRC. If you find a bug, let me know so I may look into it. If you feel that an action or report is in error, contact either MrBlarney or myself to look into it.

    If you have trouble accessing the pages, let me know what browser and version you are using and what the issue is exactly. The site has been tested with IE and Firefox and should work with all browsers, javascript must be enabled please note. This is the same codebase (but cleaned up a lot as well) as FE and with many many players there was not any compatibility issues so I do not expect any this time either.

    Enjoy the game and ask away if you have questions.

    righto, usual clarification bomb for which I am known

    1) Is there vote immunity?

    2) Are all communications from the host trustwothy?

    3) To make sure I understand the order of actions properly, a player who is voted out gets one last action before they are eliminated?

    4) Let's say Tetrakarn and Tetra Break are cast on the same target on the same night. What happens? By OOA, it seems Tetra Break hits first, which does nothing since the target has no status, then Tetrakarn is applied to buff the target for the following night?

    5a) For skills such as Tarunda and Rakunda which cannot be stacked, what has priority?
    5b) If someone has neutral status, and both spells are cast on them in the same night, what happens?
    5c) If someone already had one of those buffs on him and someone attempts to cast another, what happens? Does the new spell fizzle, override the other, or something else?

    6) Is there xp?

    7) Are there items?

    Also, for those who know me and have not been made aware, my activity this game will be much less than you would normally expect from me.

    I realize the number of clarifications I am asking is not indicative of that, so I figure I should state that up front.

    6) Is there xp?

    7) Are there items?

    1) No. The vote is absolute.

    2) Would I really lie to you?

    3) More or less. Sometimes, it's one last action as they are eliminated.

    4) That is correct. Because of the phases (and how they are connected), to break a Tetrakarn, you cast Tetra Break on the day after it is set.

    5) Attack and defense buffs can have at most one level each way, and attack and defense buffs are independent of one another. So for instance, if someone has Tarukaja and Tarunda cast on them at the same day, the net effect is no modification. If someone is already under the effects of Tarukaja and Tarukaja is cast again, then it doesn't have any effect (so a Tarunda will cancel the pre-existing Tarukaja)

    6) No experience.

    7) No items.

    11) No fusion.

    Do Tarukaja and Taruna negate each other on a one-to-one level? For example, if someone at neutral has 1x Tarukaja and 2x Tarunda cast on them in single night, are they still at neutral or do they now have Tarunda? Similarly, if they are already at Tarunda, and they get Tarukaja and Tarunda cast on the same night, do they stay at Tarunda?

    In the case that a player is targeted by multiple copies of the same buff/debuff, then only one is counted in the net result. In any situation where a "-kaja" and "-nda" effect are in the same place, the net total is a neutral result. So in the case where someone has two Tarunda and one Tarukaja cast on them, the net result is no buff/debuff. And someone who is already in a defense-down state has Tarunda and Tarukaja cast on them, the result is a neutral defense.

    More clarifications:
    5e) Does Heat Riser count as a single spell or does it split into Tarukaja and Rakukaja components?

    15a) Are the Counter series of skills affected by buffs?

    15b) If you had Rakunda on you, do you Counter for the damage you take or the base damage?

    15c) Same for Tarukaja. Counter the base damage or enhanced damage?

    16) How do the multiplicative/divisive effects work in conjunction? Say I have Phys Boost + Tarunda. Is this Base * 1.2 * 0.8 or Base * (1 + 0.2 - 0.2)?

    17) Is there actually a Defense stat that these buffs are modifying that is subtracted from effects or do they work more around directly affecting how much damage you take?

    5e) It is effectively split, the attack and defense buff and debuff act independently of each other no matter the source.

    15a) Counter %s are static.

    15b+c) The base damage is calculated for an attack, then applied with resistances. The counter will be the same damage, then applied for the resistances of the attacker.

    16) Skills with #x multipliers are multiplicative, skills with #% increases and decreases are additive. Crit is a 2x multiplier.

    17) Defense is an additive damage value that opposes the damage done by your attacker. The base stat if you wish to look at it like such is 0.
