Digital Devil Phalla: Rebirth
A MrBlarney Production
with scenario and writing support from cj iwakura;
special thanks to Infidel for page hosting and programming support.
Original games by ATLUS.


Scenario

After the environmental shifts of a half-century past, humanity was forced to quickly adapt to a new world. Chaos spread throughout the land as countries fought to survive in a hostile Earth that could not possibly support everyone. The world burned under the cataclysmic struggle between powers, leaving few to carry on humanity's legacy. But life continued, and from these ashes, civilization reemerged. Among the survivors, a grand city was born.

For thirty years, the Heavenly City has been a beacon for how humanity can continue to survive. Its outward face is one of prosperity, with comfortable living conditions for those who are willing to work for it. But not all are happy with the operations of the Heavenly City. For all of the people who are cared for by the city, there are still those who fall below the attention of the city’s governors. In order for the city to operate smoothly, there are many rules and regulations in place; freedom is something in short supply. From time to time, resistance organizations have popped up in an attempt to overturn the ruling order, but each effort has been quickly squashed by the City's vast and powerful resources. If the resistance is to successfully carry out a revolution, drastic measures will need to be taken. One resistance cell, calling themselves the Dharmapala, is on the verge of a discovery that will revolutionize and irreparably change the world. What will the consequences of their actions be? Will the Heavenly City stand strong against the chaos, perpetuating its oppression but continuing to ensure humanity's survival? Or will the Dharmapala break down the law of the land, bringing humanity to a new era but uncertainty to its fate?


Game Overview

Genre: Traditional (Village vs. Mafia), Battle Mechanics w/ Personal Pages

This is a Phalla game, Penny Arcade Forum's version of the party game Mafia. If this is your first game, it will be informative to visit the linked topic for some background information.

This game is inspired by the video game Digital Devil Saga 2 and other games in ATLUS' Shin Megami Tensei series. No knowledge of the source games are required to play in this game.

This Phalla is structured as a traditional game, with an uninformed majority, the Heavenly City guardians, pitted against an informed minority, the Dharmapala resistance. This game also features personal stat pages with which players may conduct additional actions outside of the thread discussion and vote.

Values and formulas for statistics and skills may be subject to change until the end of the signup period.


Personal Stat Pages
Many of this game’s features are conducted through personal stat pages:
SamplePage.png

On the left side of the page, you will see your vital statistics. At the top, you will see your name. Below that to the left are your level, amount of experience accumulated, and the amount of remaining experience needed to achieve the next level. On the right are your HP and MP. Next on the page are your base statistics (left) and your elemental resistances (right). Icons showing your current status conditions, both positive and negative fall in the area below. Finally, the bottom half of the left side is dedicated to showing the skills learned and learnable on the Mantra Grid. These game features will be explained in the sections below.

On the right side, you will be able to view information and make actions. At the top will be listed the game day as well as navigation for reviewing previous days. Below that are dropdowns allowing you to set the day's actions. The large portion of the right side is dedicated to a record of information including actions resolved at the previous day’s night phase as well as any activity resolved on the current day.

Player Statistics
There are three major attributes, strength (ST), magic (MA), and agility (AG). ST governs a player's maximum HP, physical attack power, and physical defense. MA governs a player's maximum MP, magical attack power and magical defense. AG governs attack accuracy, evasion rate, and action order. At the start of the game, players may allocate 12 points between these attributes (minimum of 1 in each). For each level gained, one additional point may be allocated. If there are stat points that can be allocated, then the ST, MA, and AG letters will be colored in green. Click on the stat you wish to increase, and a point will be allocated.

Derived from these, as well as player level, are secondary statistics of health points (HP) and magic points (MP). A player's life energy is indicated by HP; if HP reaches 0 or less, the player is eliminated from the game. HP also fuels abilities with the physical attribute. MP is used to power abilities with magical attributes. There is no penalty for reaching 0 MP, excepting the inability to cast spells until it is regenerated.

Base Formulas
Max HP = 120 + 12*LV + 6*ST
Max MP = 60 + 6*LV + 3*MA
Attack = ST, Defense = ST
Magic Attack = MA, Magic Defense = MA
Accuracy = AG, Evade = AG

Elements and Resistances
At the start of the game, players also allocate their resistances and weaknesses to the attack elements Physical.png Physical, Fire.png Fire, Ice.png Ice, Electric.png Electric, Force.png Force, and Earth.png Earth. (There are additional elements of Expel, Death, and Almighty, but there are no natural ways to affect resistances to these elements.) The levels of resistance are as follows:
  • Frail (Fr) - The player takes two times the normal damage from these-type attacks.
  • Weak (Wk) - The player takes 50% more damage from these-type attacks.
  • Neutral (-) - The player takes normal damage from these-type attacks.
  • Strong (St) - The player takes half damage from these-type attacks.
  • Null (Nu) - The player takes no damage from these-type attacks.

The costs for taking each level of resistance are Fr (-2), Wk (-1), St (1), Nu (2), with costs doubled for the Physical element. Characters must be created so that they have at least one Weakness or Frailty and the total point cost for their resistances are 0 or less. Resistances may not be changed after the first day of play.

Level, Experience Points, Atma Points
As the game proceeds, players will accumulate Experience points (XP) and Atma points (AP). At certain XP thresholds, players will level up, increasing their maximum HP, MP, and damage potential. AP is used to purchase skills on the Mantra Grid (see section below).

Point gains
Perform any action: +(Player LV+1) XP
Target someone that has already been eliminated: +1 XP
Target someone (except self) with a healing, support, or non-death ailment ability: +(Target LV) XP
Hit a target with an ailment or direct-damage attack: +(Target LV+1) XP
Defeat a target with an action (via damage or death ability): +(Target LV+1) XP, +(Target LV+1) AP
Be hit by an ailment or direct-damage attack while using Guard: +(Attacker LV) XP
Survive to the end of a day: +3 XP, +2 AP
Gain a level up: +2 AP, +1 Stat Point

Experience Thresholds
At level X, total XP for next level = 4*X*(X+2):
To Level 1 - Total XP: 0, XP to next level: 12
To Level 2 - Total XP: 12, XP to next level: 20
To Level 3 - Total XP: 32, XP to next level: 28
To Level 4 - Total XP: 60, XP to next level: 36
To Level 5 - Total XP: 96, XP to next level: 44
To Level 6 - Total XP: 140

Standard Actions
Each day, players may perform an action from the pool of standard actions and any purchased skills. Actions are resolved in order of AG, with the exception of abilities marked <Priority>, which are all performed first in each game day. Players with the same AG will have their actions resolved in random order. Common actions are as follows:
  • Attack - Deal a minor amount (base 18) of physical damage.
  • Guard - Reduce the damage taken from attacks by 50% today. Gain XP if attacked while Guarding. <Priority, Self Only>
  • Rest - Recover 20% Max HP and 20% Max MP (rounded up). <Priority, Self Only>
  • Revert - Recover 40% Max HP and 40% Max MP (rounded up), but take 50% more damage from attacks today. <Priority, Self Only>

Mantra Grid and Skills
Atma points (AP) may be spent to learn additional abilities from the Mantra Grid. Skills gained from the Mantra Grid have a HP or MP cost requirement for use once unlocked. Each player starts with 5 AP and may freely purchase any abilities from the central two rings (Devour counting as the innermost ring). Abilities in the outer two rings may only be learned if an adjacent ability has already been learned.

Status Ailments and Conditions
Certain abilities gained from the Mantra Grid inflict negative and positive status conditions. Players may have any number of status conditions. Negative status ailments stay in effect for at least three days (including the day it was inflicted); there is a 50% chance of recovering naturally from a status effect each turn after the third.

Poison.png Poison: Player loses health equal to 15% Max HP (rounded up) at the end of each day.

Hit and Damage Formulas
Base Values
Attack = ST, Defense = ST
Magic Attack = MA, Magic Defense = MA
Accuracy = AG, Evade = AG

Offensive Skill Formulas (direct-damage and status effect skills alike make a primary hit roll before checking damage or making a second effect roll, respectively)
Hit% = 0.95^(hit base + D – A) (rounded down), where A = attacker accuracy, D = defender evade, maximum 100%
base + D - A | <=0 |  1 |  2 |  3 |  4 |  5 |  6 |  7 |  8 |  9 | 10 
    hit %    | 100 | 95 | 90 | 85 | 81 | 77 | 73 | 69 | 66 | 63 | 59

Damage = k * (1+LV/10) * S^(A-D) (rounded up), where k = base damage, LV = user's level, S = damage increment, A = attack/magic attack, D = defense/magic defense.
Effect% = k * (6+4(1.5)^(D-A)) / (5+5(1.5)^(D-A)) (rounded up), where k = base effect%, A = attack/magic attack, D = defense/magic defense.

For physical attacks:
Damage Increment S = 1.07
Hit base modifier = 5
Critical Hit% = 10% (double damage)

For magic attacks:
Damage Increment S = 1.10
Hit base modifier = 3
Critical Hit% = 0%

Healing Formulas (healing and beneficial support spells always hit their targets):
Dia heals 30 + 3*(LV+MA) HP. Diarama heals 50 + 5*(LV+MA) HP. Healing amount will not bring target above their maximum HP. Values are not affected by other stat values or buff status.

Voting

The Heavenly City has a large military force at its disposal, enough to take down any threat no matter the size. Vote for the player who you find most suspicious in bold red with "!vote for <player name>" or similar phrase. You may retract a vote by posting "!retract vote for <player name>" or similar phrase in bold limegreen or change your vote by making another one in bold red. Do not, under any circumstance, edit a post that has a vote. If an edit is necessary, make a new post instead. The player who receives the most votes will be eliminated from the game. Should there be a tie in the vote, then only the first person to hit the tied value will be eliminated. The vote acts first in each day's resolution, before any player actions are resolved.

At the start of the game, voting will normally close each day at 8PM PDT / 11PM EDT / 3AM UTC; any actions before the hour (x:59) will count, any actions on the hour and later (x:00) will not. If this game is still in progress when Daylight Saving Time expires in the United States on Sunday, November 3, the vote close will shift to 8PM PST / 12AM EST / 4AM UTC.


Signing Up

Sign up with the phrase "I !sign up" or similar phrase in bold limegreen or other bright, easily visible color to ensure that your intent to play is acknowledged. Signups will be open for a minimum of 72 hours, closing at earliest on Tuesday, October 22, 8PM PDT / 11PM EDT / Wednesday, October 23, 3AM UTC. Depending on signup numbers and page testing progress, there may be a 24-hour or longer extension to the signup period. There is no maximum cap for signups for this game.


Inactivity

It is expected that players do at least two of the following three things each day to be considered sufficiently active: make at least two posts, make a vote, submit private actions. A warning will be sent on the first day that this requirement is not met, and a replacement will be made on the second consecutive day of inactivity or third day overall. If there are no replacements available, then the player will be eliminated from the game.


Clarifications

Any questions about the general game rules may be made by highlighting the question in bold darkorange text. Answers will be posted in the thread and collected in the below section. Player-specific inquiries that are not addressed in the general rules may be asked via PM to the host.


Other Rules

Standard Phalla rules apply: no sharing of host-provided PMs via screenshots or direct quotation. However, information may be shared indirectly, such as through rephrasing. You may not add new players to preexisting 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 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.


Questions and Answers

Q. Are there any advanced Phalla mechanics in play, including conversions, unreliable masons, unreliable seers, thralls, and vote manipulation?
A. No.

Q. Do elemental resistances protect against instant kill abilities at all?
A. Under normal circumstances, elemental resistances do not affect the probability of effect for skills with an instant-kill effect.

Q. What information will I be able to see on other players? What information will I see from combat?
A. You will only be able to see a player's name, but not their health and resistances. In combat, you will know how much damage you have dealt to your target, and if attacked, how much damage you took, but not who targeted you.

Q. Regarding status effects, is the % given in their descriptions the base chance to hit, or the chance to apply the status effect after hitting?
A. Ailment skills must first hit using a standard hit% formula before applying a second roll for the effect hit using the base% as listed in the skill description (which may be slightly modified by stat differences).

    I would also like to try my hand at this, if my time zone doesn't matter.

    Do the resistance have to eliminate the citizens with their abilities, or do they get a separate vote too?

    In a typical Phalla game, the minority faction (mafia) receives at least one kill where as a group, they decide on a player to eliminate from the game. This is not exactly a typical Phalla game, however, and I withhold further clarification for now.

    Do immunities protect against instant kill abilities at all?
    Also, what sort of information is publicly available on each player? Do you only see health loss when you attack (so you can work out weaknesses/strengths), or can everyone see everyone's HP at all times?

    Clarification has been added to the Hit and Damage Formulas section: all offensive abilities (direct damage attacks, ailment abilities) must perform a to-hit roll before calculating damage or performing a second roll for the effect.

    Under normal circumstances, elemental resistances do not affect the probability of effect for skills with an instant-kill effect.

    You will only be able to see a player's name, but not their health and resistances. In combat, you will know how much damage you have dealt to your target, and if attacked, how much damage you took, but not who targeted you.

    When a player is eliminated through combat, will the killer or manner of death be known?
    I'm guessing that they will not, but it doesn't hurt to ask :P

    Only the player to land the killing blow will know how their target died.

    It's worth noting that at most one player may claim a kill for a single individual due to the order of resolution (see Standard Actions section of the opening post).

    EDIT: The text for the Poison status ailment has been corrected to trigger its effects at the end of each day.

    Right, it is still a Blarnfidel game, I just have taught Blarney enough of how to code my framework that he can make games on his own enough for me to play in!

    See Elementalist for the first that I could, that went well too. 8->

    Right. So, I have a few questions:
    Is it a valid action to use a physical-attribute skill while current HP = skill cost?
    Are the descriptions for Hama and Hamaon correct? (I'm asking because in the games, they work off of current HP and not maximum HP)
    With regard to Panic, how is the random action selected? i.e. is it chosen from valid actions the afflicted could otherwise perform, or from any actions they could perform with sufficient HP and MP even if (ailments notwithstanding) they are not currently valid?

    No. If a skill has an HP cost that would take your HP to 0 or less, then it will not be used. If, during action resolution, your HP is taken below that which is necessary to perform the skill, no action will take place but you will be credited with experience for having set the action initially. This credit also applies if an ailment contradicts your ability to perform your desired action.
    Are the descriptions for Hama and Hamaon correct? (I'm asking because in the games, they work off of current HP and not maximum HP)
    Yes, they are correct as stated in the OP. I could have made them more powerful (percentage-wise) and based damage off of current HP and not maximum HP, but chose not to.
    With regard to Panic, how is the random action selected? i.e. is it chosen from valid actions the afflicted could otherwise perform, or from any actions they could perform with sufficient HP and MP even if (ailments notwithstanding) they are not currently valid?
    The random action chosen under Panic comes from all valid actions. Skills with insufficient HP or MP available cannot be selected; Silenced individuals may not use skills that consume MP.
