Democracy [Mini-Phalla] (Game over, mafia bloodbath, village victory!)

kimekime Queen of BladesRegistered User regular
edited October 2017 in Critical Failures
Welcome to the Democracy Phalla!

Because voting is just so much fun, I figured we should have more! (That's about the only thing this game has to do with Democracy, just lots of votes. It is not a political-themed Phalla in any way.)

This is a relatively basic Phalla. Newcomers and veterans are welcome alike! If you don’t know how to play, or need a refresher, check out [url=”https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/99170/cf-phalla-signup-list/p1”]the OP in this thread[/url].

The Twist

Most of the village’s Special roles are not assigned by me at the beginning of the game. Every day, 3 people out of the entire living player base will be randomly assigned a special role. The three specials are Alpha, Beta, and Gamma (the colors are GoldenRod, DodgerBlue, and LimeGreen respectively).

"Alpha," "Beta," "Gamma"? What do they do?

Good question, voice-in-my-head, I’m glad you asked! The powers of these three specials are determined by three separate votes.

Every day, you will vote for what power you want each of the specials to have amongst Vig, Guard, and Seer. This is an example, to vote for the Beta special to be a Vig, you would say something like:
I vote for Beta to be Vig

or even as simple as
Vig

Every night, whichever power won for each Special will be the power they have that night.

Then, the Special roles are randomly re-assigned, and the new votes begin with the new day!

If the vote is tied, it will be randomly determined from among the tied options.

The (regular) Vote

This is Phalla, so of course you will be voting for whom to kill. Do that in bold red like normal. The player with the most votes dies. There is no dodging or manipulating this vote.

In the case of a tie, all tied players die. Votes are scary!




This is designed for 20 players. Signups will remain open until we hit that or until Monday. Signup by posting your interest here in any fun color, like magenta! Or whatever your favorite color is.

Example villager PM
Congratulations, you are a villager!

Win Condition: You win when all threats to the village are eliminated

Special Abilities: None right now! But you may be granted a Special role later in the game!

Alpha PMs (Beta/Gamma are similar, just replace the word)
Congratulations, you have been granted Special Role Alpha!

Special Abilities: Your special ability will be determined by the vote today. Whichever among Vig, Seer, or Guard win the GoldenRod vote will be what your special power is. Today, any time before vote close, respond to this PM with your target.

Choose wisely, you may not be so Special tomorrow!

You Win Condition has not changed

Inactivity

You are required to make a Red vote every day. I'll be watching that carefully.

You are required to vote for powers for each of the three Specials every day. I may not be as strict on this requirement because it's more work, but if anyone regularly misses that they will be punished.

The vote will close at 10 PM Pacific

Clarifications
myself wrote:
OMG this is totally unbalanced didn't you think of <x> at all?
Good point! I reserve the right to tweak some things before the game starts. I have a few different variations that I am considering to change the rules slightly. I didn't want to wait to put up signups though because I am impatient. I'll think if I want to change anything over the weekend.


Will you let folks do conditional orders? "If vig wins I target x, if seer wins I target y, if guard wins I target z" sort of thing. Also can folks change their orders once submitted?
You can do conditional orders based on the results of the public vote.

Order can be changed, yes.

Or are there limitations, like needing to assign one different role to each, or only being able to vote for one of the roles?

Gamma power Seer
Remove Suspected Player Mafia

Your first set of votes is fine

    Even if I have no power, I'll kill you all. So give me power and I'll let you live?

    Do those ever get run here? Never played before but the game seems right up my alley.

    I'm pretty sure it does, if not it is fairly easy to run one through various websites that will provide you a map and such. The trick is you really want to play with people around your skill level.

    Feels like issueing orders as a starship captain.

    direct all power to shields!
    Concentrate Ion Torpedoes on the TRV flagship!

    Sir, there are 20 admirals giving orders in this fleet and I think some are moles! Phalla!

    For extra paranoia, and a bonus to mafia who end up as seers, the mafia should be unmasoned with a secret majority vote for their kill.

    Then *everybody* is literally out for themselves as the only guaranteed way to win is be the last person standing!

    ...

    I was never here
