    I've seen what Gumpy can do in a position of power.

    Clearly, he's either our greatest asset or someone who has to die immediately

    Nah, he aint that bad, Gumpy can't quite keep a hood over the eyes of the village the entire game without some really helpful circumstances.

    Like say, a village that is sent hurtling against the walls with little hope of independent survival as superpowered factions battle it out while swatting aside villagers as mere collateral, forcing the village to put blind trust in autocratic figures who almost certainly don't have the best of intentions since even if their internal voices are telling him there's something wrong with the man, there's really no options left besides obeying the one they've chosen.

    But I mean, come on.

    who would host a game like that

    The best part of the game was the man with the most powerful role in the history of phalla complaining how biased it was against the village. Even though he could've contacted any faction of his pleasing because he could literally win with anyone

    Instead he sat in the background accumulating power until the mafia met their first win condition and converted him

    Wait did I mean best? I mean reason why I will punch him in the nose next time we meet. Again!

    But as he's not here I can't vote for him. Instead I shall vote for... whoever is the most annoying before the day ends

    I was actually thinking more of the first main phallakinetic when I wrote that post, where Gumpy first rose to Quickendom. Obviously you are more than capable of improving these things with successive iterations, and then having all your plans ruined by HeavyVillain in spite of this.

    (yes, I know the village technically received a minor victory in the first phallakinetic main, quiet Gumpy)

    there's one or two robots

    mostly just trolls though

    the gist is that they're essentially an alien race of internet trolls, so they're all either super angry or creepy or one of "us gamers" or etc.

    yeah he most certainly would if he's in the game

    but at least early on he would most likely be helpful to us since in the comic he goes about achieving his "win condition" primarily by fucking with the trolls and kids and manipulating them into killing or maiming one another

    There are bishop and knight equivalents, but they're not a big part of the story like the king and queen. Just background characters.

    The Warweary Villein. He's a black pawn that's sick of the war between the two kingdoms and raises an army of rebel pawns from both sides.

    The chess piece analogy does extend to everyone, but it's weird. Inside of Skaia there is a planet that looks like a giant chessboard, and most of the war takes place there. There are soldiers that look like every kind of chess piece (other than the queen), which are commanded by their respective kings. Outside of Skaia, you have Agents, which seem to outrank all of the chess pieces other than the royalty. Agents are police, dignitaries, mail carriers, and secretaries for the monarchy. They're ruled over by the Black Queen, who, like the queen generally does in chess, sits back and waits for an opportune moment to enter the real battle and start fucking things up with her high amounts of power.

    Actually, you know what? Just watch this, it answers both of your questions succinctly:

    http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003701

    the guy in the purple cloak is the Warweary Villein, and the guy that flies in and kills the black king is Jack Noir.
