All life, love, and peace has its start within the heart of the World Tree. A tree that is miles in diameter and grasps the outer reaches of the sky with its tallest branches. Several peaceful civilizations live and thrive within it, some living in the trunk, some in the branches, and some amongst the leaves. Life is idyllic for all the citizens of the many towns and kingdoms of the tree. This is thanks to the fantastic sap that flows through the tree, the water of life. The two most powerful kingdoms in the World Tree, the Elves of the trunk and the Dwarves of the highest heights take great care to protect this water and thus maintain peace and prosperity in the tree and the world.

Produced and directed by 38thDoe

What’s all this now?

This is a game of peace and happiness. I can't imagine anything threatening might happen here. I assume this will end with a shared everyone entering victory. If by some outlandish miracle things do get threatening I'm sure you could just vote the threat out of the game.

In the chance that happens, you might look at the link below for more information.

General rules of Phalla can be found here. New players are welcome as are old of course.

Specific rules can be found below:

Standard Phalla Rules/Mechanics:

You must vote each day. Vote in bold red for whomever you think is likely to be a threat to you. The winner of the vote will be eliminated every night. Tie votes will kill both people involved and the person causing the tie. Be careful.

In addition, everyone should make at least two posts each day. Failure to vote or contribute will lead to warning and replacement. One of these days I'll track this sort of thing. I'm serious!

Do not directly quote anything from PMs with me, or take screenshots of them. It is okay to paraphrase role PMs however.

Do not add other players to PM conversations.

Do not anonymously contact anyone.

When you die you may make one ghost post which cannot contain any game information whatsoever.

Ask for clarifications in Bold DarkOrange. You can always PM me with clarification requests, or post them directly in the thread. If you have questions about your role you should probably use the PM method to avoid giving away info to the other players. They are *already* suspicious of you.

Make sure you invite me to any PMs or proboards you might form.

Order of actions: VOTE >Guard>Kill> ???

The Day will Close at 8PM EST. I’M OLD!

    I was unaware that there were also happy giant trees, but Bob Ross would probably be cool with it.

    The Faxandu evidence seems pretty strong, but given the authors we can't trust it 100%.

    I'm sure I don't know what you mean.

    How is everyone feeling about weekends? It seems to be difficult to get activity on weekends if previous trends continue. Would just having weekends be a day off be best? Sat+Sun combined extended day? I'm open to ideas.

    Also how do people feel about vote closes at 3-4PM EST vs 8PM EST?

    As long as the game doesn't START on the weekend, personally I"m good either way.

  • mrpakumrpaku Registered User regular
    Saturday- Sunday combined seems like the best way in my opinion. Probably extending to Friday or Monday on a holiday weekend

    I think people were generally against taking weekends off entirely, but personally I am in favor of that option. So the day would end on Friday, and the next day would begin on Sunday and end on Monday (with provisions for holiday weekends). While I can always check the forums on the weekends and get a vote/action in, it is difficult for me to make any substantive posts.

    I'm also in favor of earlier vote close. Though people in the US will likely be working or at school at 3-4 PM, so I'm not sure how feasible it is for everyone else.

    No time for Phalla until September.
    Looks fun though!

    I'm starting to think that combined day weekends have evolved into actual phalla cancer.
    It's like, I shouldn't bother posting or checking the thread on a Saturday because probably nobody else will and it's frustrating to post something and then see no responses for like a full day. Then comes Sunday morning, I check and there's still barely any activity, let's just put this phalla off until later in the day, if I still remember... And so on, like a self perpetuating cycle of nobody doing anything because nobody is doing anything. It feels like giving everyone extra time just discourages activity.
    I can't imagine most of us are really busier on the weekend, seems like a lot of us have full time jobs during the week and more of us have spouses/kids/etc to come home to in the evening than we used to.

  • kimekime Queen of Blades Registered User regular
    For me, I'm on my computer all day at work. I browse the forums a lot ("waiting for things to compile or something like that!") :P. On the weekend, I'm out or watching the baby almost the whole day. I can browse on my phone, but it's a lot more annoying to play Phalla on my phone. I sometimes get a couple hours in the morning/evening on weekends, but it's not consistent.

    So it's not the worst thing to have phalla on weekends, it just doesn't mesh well with my schedule. Nothing to do with the activity level overall.

    As kime's saying, I think it's more a problem of competing commitments (and sometimes lack of access to a screen due to them) that've accumulated as the phalla population has aged, not literal lack f availability. I agree that it hasn't been the best way to solve the problem, though!

    I think premium is right that extended-day weekends is a half-measure that has caused more harm than good. While I personally favor no phalla on weekends (because it fits my circumstances better), I think having weekends be regular days is still better than extended-day weekends. Ultimately it comes down to whatever works for the host, though.

  • mrpakumrpaku Registered User regular
    I wouldn't necessarily mind having weekends done away with, but I think the issue there for people might be A, forgetting between Friday and Monday there *is* a phalla, B, acquiring unforseen adult responsibilities over the weekend that sadly back burner the phalla, or some combination both

    I think the real issue to work around is the momentum killing premium rightly describes happening over the weekend. If you just said see you see you guys Monday, would Monday be a similar "everyone is fashionably late to the party" situation? Has it ever been tried?

    I don't remember anyone ever skipping the weekend entirely. I wouldn't be opposed to trying that?

    I'm fine with normal weekend 24-hour days too, but I personally will find it harder.

    I'm of the opinion that you won't know how it works until you try it.

    So I vote to skip weekends completely and see if that hampers/helps/does nothing.
