The Colorless Phalla
A MrBlarney Game
Within the walls of the city of Ciela lived a populace filled with prosperity. Owing to their lives of relative ease, the people of the city were known as Saturated. Outside of the walls, though, lived a people whose lives with hard work and little gain. These people, known as the Colorless, could only envy the lives of those within in the walls. Recently, a district within Ciela's walls has become home to a troubling pattern of illness. Persons known to normally be vibrant have become sluggish and lethargic. The peaceful life of the Saturated has become disrupted, and suspicions and rumors have begun to swirl that this is a plot of the jealous Colorless. As the number of people suffering from the Pale condition increase, how will the city and its citizens change?
Genre: Traditional (Village vs. Mafia)
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. Most players in the game will be one of the Saturated, the uninformed majority (villager) faction. The remaining players will be part of the Colorless, the informed minority (mafia) faction.
Soldiers are on patrol in the district, looking out for suspicious persons who should not belong. Vote for the player who you believe to be a Colorless 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 detained, and thus will be eliminated from the game. Should there be a tie in the vote, all players at the tied value will be eliminated. The vote acts first in each day's resolution, before any player actions are resolved.
Voting will close each day at 10PM PDT / 1AM EDT / 5AM UTC; any actions before the hour (x:59) will count, any actions on the hour and later (x:00) will not.

It is expected that players make at least two posts and submit a vote in order to be considered sufficiently active.
