This is Star Wars Phalla mini for 30 Players. With the blessing of the gracious ObiFett, this game takes place in the same
continuity as [Phallance] in the Force and it's minis and the results will have an effect on future games in the
(Thanks also to Saber Over Easy for vetting the mechanics and helping me trim the worst excesses)
What is Phalla? (Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more
Phalla is the Penny-Arcade Forums' version of the party game Mafia.
The "village" consists of all players in the game. Included in the village are a small number of bad guys, commonly known as the "mafia". Normally, the mafia members all know one another at the beginning of the game, but nobody else knows anything about anyone other than themselves.
Each day (normally a 24-hour period) the village discusses and publically votes for one person to be executed that night. At the same time, the bad guys choose one person to kill each night and PM the name to the narrator.
The good side wins if all of the bad guys die. The bad side wins if the number of good guys is less than or equal to the number of bad guys (on the assumption that at that point, they control the vote plus get their kill, so it's inevitable).
Usually, there will be one or more "special" roles among the good guys (and occasionally among the bad guys). Exactly who holds each role is only known to that person, and it may not even be known which or how many specials will be in any given game.
Each night, the narrator gives the details of who died, and normally whether they were a bad guy. Some games also include clues or outright statements if someone who died was a good special.
Living players may not communicate regarding the game with dead players and vice versa, unless there is some specific mechanic in place to do so. In that case, communication normally goes through the narrator.
You may not use any anonymous method of communication to discuss the game. Forum-based PMs, external IMs, e-mails and other message boards (like proboards) are allowed as long as the person you are talking to knows who you are. You may not use screencaps to "prove" anything to anyone. Do not speak in code.
Along similar lines, don't use the "Add to conversation" feature. Phalla requires a certain amount of uncertainty, and since adding a person to a conversation allows them to see the entire thread, it can serve as a form of verification along the same lines of screen captures. If you wish to communicate something from a PM/conversation to a new player, then start up a new conversation with that individual.
Play nice. It's okay to argue, but don't get too hostile. If it's getting to the point where you're asking other people to quit the game, you're going too far. We're all here to have fun, so take it easy and keep as level a head as possible. Respect others and they'll respect you.
Please remember to include the host in PMs and links to proboards.
Vote each Day in Red
for the scum you want to see get blasted in the fighting. If you wish to vote for someone else, retract with Green
or vote for someone else, only your last vote will be counted!
In addition to voting, players will have other duties outlined in their PMs.
Vote Close and deadline for submission of orders is at Midnight EST (9pm for those of us on the West Coast)
Those who played the original Phallance will remember this little doozy. Every night, a calculation is made is made depending on who has gone to certain planets. Once a faction controls a planet, they will unlock certain powers for their group. The 5 key planets of the Mandalore Sector are as follows
Home planet of the Mandalorian people, traditional seat of the Mand'alor
. Houses here are built for both functionality as farms, as well as for withstanding protracted sieges. It's people have a reputation as some of the best fighters in the galaxy
Though technically not a planet, controlling the space lanes means you control when and where troops can arrive at, a most valuable asset in an interstellar war
An archetypical Mandalorian planet, mostly dedicated to farming, with a couple frontier type cities. Reknowned for it's Journeyman Protectors, the stern lawmen of the planet.
The Demon Moon of Onderon. It is filled with some of the harshest lifeforms in the galaxy, making it the perfect training ground. There are also rumors of Sith Tombs buried in it's jungles.
Once home to a species of the same name until they were subjugated by an early Mandalorian conquest. The species produced some of the finest weapons and technology in the Mandalorian arsenal before devolving into little better than warbeasts
How much Control do we need to control a planet?
15, this can be built up over multiple nights, or all in one go. Just remember the other faction can move in and remove your work
Thralls, Millers, Conversions, etc.?
I'm not gonna lie to you Marge, Clarification Denied
Ties will be dealt with in traditional Keldabe fashion. The being causing the tie will be summarily executed along with the beings that are tied. No exceptions. There is no trickle, so no shenanigans on that front.
Order of Operations?
