You stand outside the large mansion and gulp. Taking a deep breath, you reach into your pocket and take out your invitation. You read it one more time to make sure this is real:
You have been cordially invited to Sir Fabulous' Halloween party! Please come dressed in a costume! Guests who do not come dressed will be shot!
All nutritional needs will be accommodated for, if you have special nutritional needs, please check the relevant box below:
<> Souls only
<> I do not require sustenance
I would ask that you do not ignore this invitation. People that receive this invitation and do not attend will be shot!
I hope to see you soon
You take a long, last glance at the outside world before opening the door and stepping inside. You know that when Sir Fabulous throws a party, not everyone survives.
SIR PHALLABULOUS' MANSION
You now stand in the greeting hall of the Mansion in front of you stand Sir Fabulous. His eyes are bloodshot and wild. His hair is in a state of disarray. You are very briefly afraid, but he just smiles and winks. After all, he has no way to tell who you are beneath the costume.
"Thank you very much for coming to my party! I hope no-one will get set on fire and sodomized this year," he giggles. "The ballroom is through that set of doors. I will join my guests and officially start the party as soon as all 26 of my guests arrive. I know that it can be a bit confusing to attend one of my parties, so before you enter, do you have any questions?
Er, yes. Sir Fab, what IS this?
Ah, my friend! This is an online version of the popular party game "Mafia." On these forums we call it "Phalla", but the general concepts are the same!
And does this "Phalla" have a particular theme?
I'm glad you asked! This Phalla is not based around anything that you might be familiar with. All the roles and mechanics were created by me, Sir Fabulous. I have a pretty overactive imagination, so you can prepare yourselves for some Grade-A craziness
Are there any rules I should be aware of?
All the standard Phalla rules are in place. This includes:
No quoting or copypasting from role PMs.
Adding the host (me!) to any PMs you make.
Inviting the host (me!) to any ProBoards you make.
No anonymous contact.
Don't piss me off.
If you would like more information about how Phalla tends to work on these forums, you can always ask someone more experienced, including myself, or visit the link posted below.
Are there any special rules for this Phalla?
Why yes in fact there are!
Each person must sign up in Bold Limegreen
. They must also sign up with a costume to show that they have read these rules. These costumes will have no effect on gameplay, but will hopefully make narrations more fun.
In this game, everyone will be getting a unique role. Every role has some kind of power, either active or passive.
Each role has both a Win Condition and a Secondary Win Condition. At the end of the game, people will be divided into 4 categories.
Complete Failure: You have not completed either of your win conditions.
Consolation Prize: You have completed your secondary win condition.
Winner of the Game: You have completed your primary win condition.
Champion of the Forums: You have completed both win conditions.
Additionally, everyone gets 2 actions per day. These actions can be used to do one of two things:
Move: 2 Actions
Explore: 1 Action
Moving allows you to travel from one room to another. You can access any room from any other room. Which room is most valuable to you will depend upon the circumstances you find yourself in.
Exploring a room takes one action and triggers an event.
The event you experience will be randomly determined.
You can experience most events more than once.
There are 5 rooms that are open for guests in Sir Fabulous' Mansion:
Each of these rooms has different events connected to it.
You will not know which people are in which room (unless they tell you of course).
Each night you can vote for someone in Bold Red
. The person with the most votes will have a hilarious prank pulled on them.
Clarifications in Orange
Do unused actions carry over from night to night?
Day ends 12:00 am EST. It's not in the OP, adding it now.
When do days end? I think I'm being blind, but I can't find it in the OP.
so if exploring takes one action, and movement takes two, and we get two actions a night, can we explore twice?
