A library, Dorian noted, is much like a man's mind. The further you delve into it, the narrower it becomes. In front of him, a cloud of dust arose from each step of the librarian.
The librarian smiled. “Don't want to surprise anyone back here. Mostly just the cats and mice, but ever so often you find someone who thinks the back stacks are more private than their own room. Or more than one someones.” He winked knowningly.
Dorian shuddered at the thought of the old man walking in on one of his liaisons. It also occurred to him that a woman might be an even better metaphor for the library. “I'm just looking for information about Choregus, old man, not an assignation.”
“Spending time in the dark with a beauty like Choregus? An assignation seems to be exactly what you have in mind. Not that she isn't worth every moment. Her very name has set men's blood afire in their veins. Even those who managed to have her have found that keeping her is the far more difficult task.” The old man stopped before a large shelf.
Dorian sneezed. “Well, which one is it old man?”
It took him a moment to realized the weezing sounds was the old man laughing. “Boy, Choregus is not some trollop to be taken down once and replaced as soon as you have finished. She is a queen that demands time and passion. More men have died for her than ever lived within her protection. The life of a man is far to short to ever satisfy her. She demands generations. Which one of these is the history of the city of Choregus?
“They all are.”
Phalla Generations is a phalla game for 30 players.
This is a Phalla game, Penny Arcade Forum's version of the party game Mafia. This particular game takes place over several generations of the leading families of the city of Choregus.

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 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 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 hosts and add him as an admin.
Please include the hosts on all game PM's.
Each player has two specific pieces of information: Their family name and their sign. Family names are unique. Sign are explained below.
Village specials are the chosen of specific deities of Choregus. Every player (both village and mafia) have a sign associated with one of the deities. Every night, a village special may choose a player to pass along their blessing to. If they are killed that night AND their target shares their sign, they will pass along their abilities to their target. If they do not have a player selected or the target does not share a their sign, the power will be dormant for one day, then reappear on a random eligible player.
Example: SaberOverEasy is a vig and has the sign of the North Star. He targets MrBlarney to pass along his ability. MrBlarney also has the sign of the North Star. If Saber is killed that night, MrBlarney would become the vig and be able to choose another player to pass his power along to. If MrBlarney does not have the North Star sign, no one will have the vig power the next day. On the following day, a new vig will be chosen randomly out of all the players (both village and mafia) with the North Star sign.
Guarding and vigging are both additive. Each guard cancels out a single vig. For example, if Saber is targeted with a single vig and a single guard action, he will survive. However, if he is targeted with two vig actions and one guard action, he will be killed.
