    I have never played in a phalla before (I was in Munkus' in SE++, but I got in at the end of the game as a sub, so I just kind of flailed around), so how does first night voting go? Like, is there any way to make an informed guess or is it just someone gets lynched and that's too bad?

    Good afternoon thread

    They call me Von Bear, and I would like to discuss with you the concept of experimentation. I am a Doctor, a man of both science and curiosity. They call me mad, but I prefer inventive. So, what do I have to discuss with you Arcadia?

    As you may or may not be aware, and I believe we should all dwell on this, is Experiments are a powerful neutral faction. Well, when I say faction, I mean a subcatogary of individuals. Monsters, machines and men who have abilities far beyond the norm, and whose services will be key to the victory of any of the masoned factions or village groups. Each one is its own special snowflake, if snowflakes had the ability to maim and murder a small platoon.

    So, what brings me here? I am a man of science, and I have had a hand in the creation of the weird and wonderful. For me, the experimentation must continue. Any experiments who come to me will gain the blessing of my art, and see damage bodies repaired and new, exciting toys added. Perhaps a new head, or hands that excrete flaming acid. You experiments are your own special snowflakes, and I want to make you the happiest little scientific abominations around.

    The only technique you need to vote for the first night, and any night thereafter, is your gut. Reason and investigation are useful, but its the gut feeling that drives you onwards that you need.

    the day 1 narration implies the experiments might be neutrals (or worse)

    and that even if theyre not they're a liability

    The experiments appear to be the main focus of this phalla, and if they are not of main interest to individual players, they are of a main interest to me. I am a doctor, a man of science who cares only for his lost children, and I am making that very clear from the get go so I can attempt to avoid the early crossfires. I dare say that my history from previous Phallakinetics would make me a very likely target of the day 1 crossfire, so I wish to make myself a known quantity from the get go. Feel free to seer me if you will, you will find evidence that I am no part of the Arcadian order, nor am I High Council or Dominion. If the factions do not want to send their experiments to me for upgrades and maintenance, then that is their choice, but I wish to engage in straight up negotiation and try and avoid being stabbed in the back.

    "The experiments can wait. If they turn on us, neutralise them. If they assist... so much the better."

    ...that the Experiments can go either way. That, plus the updated OP saying they can be converted, makes me think they are akin to a resource, like Items would be. I'd be nervous about them all being worked on by one person.

    'Serial Killer with an army of converted thralls' comes to mind.

    Well the logic is there

    But if I was planning to create an army of murder monsters to butcher everyone I wouldn't put my head out there on day 1

    I think that we should attempt to identify the experiments quickly. After all if they are a neutral faction it makes sense for us to try and recruit them before the enemy does.

    Also allow me to retort, sir!

    Vote every day or be thrown into space.

    Actions are performed instantly with the exception of certain things that specify otherwise (like some healing abilities). So if a guard-equivalent protects a player, that player will be protected for that night even if the guard winds up with a photon bolt through the eye socket- unless otherwise stated. Likewise, attackers who attack a player will still contribute to the total attack power sent towards their person even if they get killed themselves.

    The vote is untouchable. It can’t be blocked, redirected, or nullified. If someone is vote-killed, they die.

    The vote does not trickle down. If the target of the vote is killed as well as vote-killed, they're just extra dead.

    Why hate? You should have something in your role PM that you can use to negotiate with. Get out there, act flirtatious and make some friends
