Welcome to The Unfortunate Voyage of the Harbinger, A Munkus Phalla!

What kind of Phalla is this? Power Rangers? Pop Cultural Reference? Poorly Done Fanfiction? Confusion Bulljitsu?

I run my games in my own universes. My games are based around the central concept of an Uniformed Majority having to defeat an Informed Minority. Information control watching its use is my favorite part of Phalla games. Breaking my previous trend, this setting will be in a generalized Science Fiction setting aboard the starship Harbinger. Things start to go wrong for the crew as they finish their approach on the colony of Huntsman Arcade.

No, I will not be offering clarifications as to mechanics. Yes, trying to creatively break the game will go poorly.

You can see examples of all of this in my last phalla. Day One is found here:

Sign ups of the old game (which include all the original descriptions for each role) are found here:

Yes, I fundamentally do not believe in the villager PM. This phalla will start at a specified time and you will receive a PM only if you are a special. Since creating unique roles with descriptions takes an extremely long time, I have instead kept it simple: you sign up for your role on the crew of the ship. THESE ROLES ARE ENTIRELY FLAVOR FOR OPTIONAL ROLEPLAY AND FOR FLUFF IN THE NARRATION. FLUFF IN THE NARRATION IS ALSO JUST THAT: ME MAKING THE GAME MORE INTERESTING FOR YOU. DON'T TRY TO INFER THINGS BY WHO PARTICIPATES IN WHAT ACTION OF THE NARRATION OR WHAT THEIR JOB ON THE SHIP IS.


Do so by posing in this thread, by posting with an exclamation point, sign up, and the number of the slot you want. All of this bold and limed. !SIGN UP 24. Sign ups are entirely first come first serve.
