IRON SKY: A SPACE [Phalla]
With thanks to BL for many, many aspects of this phalla
Earth was at peace, for once. Her populace was happy, content, not outright bent on killing each other. With peace on Earth, humanity turned their gaze back to the stars. A new era of space exploration began, with the earliest vessels that took man past their atmosphere press-ganged into an expanded role. Many nations joined the United States in space, in relative harmony.
Of course, there had to be some snag in the plan, some unforeseen complication. Most predicted technical difficulties, or a breakdown in international relations.
No-one bet on a splinter group of Nazis that fled the shambles of WWII-era Germany to reside on a secret moon base launching a massive force to invade Earth.
They struck without warning. Massive fleets of what appeared to be Zeppelins emerged from the moon, launching squadrons of flying saucers from within, bristling with weaponry. While the saucers that had entered Earth’s atmosphere had been repelled, the space fleet was much more formidable. At first, it seemed all hope was lost. But then...
The political fallout of every nation having secretly armed their own primitive space vehicles would have to wait. The battle for the Earth has begun.
What is this?
This is a mini-Phalla for 30 players, based on the hilariously bad movie of the same name. Note: Familiarity with the movie will bring a little extra immersion, but is not required to play.
This game is also an HP based game, that takes place over a multiple zone map.
Each player will be in command of their own ship that helps comprise the Earth Defense Fleet. The goal of the village will be to track down and eliminate the Nazi sympathizers that have infiltrated your fleet. This will be made more difficult by the groups of space Zeppelins and fighters trying to shoot you down. Each night, you may vote to see whose spaceship will be remotely detonated by the U.N. in an attempt to find and destroy the traitors(the bureaucrats have to feel useful, after all.) Vote will close at 11:00 P.M. CST
on the button. Edited vote posts will not count. All players MUST make at least one vote post and one non-vote post each day. Failure to do so will lead to your first zero-g walk with no suit on.
...You’re usually a bit more animated.
You’re usually a bit more crazy.
Huh. Noted. Also, something about judging books by covers and whatnot.
Here are the basics to ship piloting:
Each ship has a total of 40 HP
. Each night, you may choose from one of three actions: Attack, Evade, or Power to Weapons. Attack deals 10 damage to one target. Evade negates 10 damage done to you. Power to Weapons will have you deal an extra 10 damage to your next attack, but you cannot fire that same night. Ex. Night 1 you put power to weapons but may not fire, Night 2 you attack for 20 damage. When you attack, you may target one person in either your zone or a zone adjacent (no diagonals).
Each night you may also choose to move to an adjacent area on the map (again, no diagonals). You may fire your weapons and move on the same night, but if you do, your attacks will deal half damage, as there is only so much power in your ship.
This is the map:
Each night, a group of zeppelins and fighters (whose make-up will be randomly determined) will launch from the moon onto the battlefield. They will target a ship in their zone to shoot at, and may be freely targeted by players. Their destruction is not required, but eliminating them may help you to live another night.
Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of host-provided PMs via screenshots or direct quotation. As a matter of fact, no screenshots of anything. However, information may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing. You may not add new players to pre-existing private conversations after the first message - start a new conversation instead. No anonymous contact is allowed. All messages must be traceable to a player in the game. Once you are eliminated, you may not make any more game-related conversation with players remaining in the game.
If any players create proboards for private communication or interesting conversations including more than two players, please send links for them to the host and add him as an admin.
Please include the host on all game PM's.
Signup in the appropriate color in this thread, and when you sign up, you should also PM me what you want your ship to be named. Don’t include the fleet prefixes; just a name will suffice.
Clarifications to be asked in bold orange.
Vanillager PM: You are the Captain of the ________. While still new to the whole spaceship captain thing, you don’t really have the opportunity to learn aside from blasting Nazis out of the sky. You win when all of the mafia have been eliminated.
