In the year of 202X
creating element themed super robots was all the rage. All the best robots were created by the prolific Dr. Light to make life easier for mankind.
This is a robot building game for many people.
Phalla is the Penny-Arcade Forum Version of the Party Game Mafia. 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.
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, or discord servers you might form.

Specific Rules/Mechanics:Robot Building:
After signups close the Robot Creator form will be linked in the Day Zero post. Players will use this to construct their robot, choosing a name, element, and power.Elements:
The Five Elements of the Megaman Universe are of course: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Guts. As the image shows, Metal is strong against wood but weak against water. Wood is strong against water. Water is strong against fire. Fire is strong against Guts, and Guts is strong against Metal. Attacks will be boosted when hitting a weak element, and reduced when hitting a strong element.Powers:
Normal Attack Don't be fooled by the name, this attack packs quite a punch. This will deal 5 damage by default.
Quick Attack This attack sacrifices power for speed, hitting very early for 3 damage by default.
Area Attack This attack will let you spread the love, hitting 4 targets for 1 damage each.
Charge Attack This attack will do massive damage to one target as long as you take no damage while charging it.
Dam Reduce Shield Reduce all damage taken by your target by 50%
Ultimate Shield This shield will block the strongest attack your target takes completely.
Spiked Shield This shield will reflect all damage taken by your target to its sources. The sources will take an additional 1 damage for their efforts. This damage will be elementless.
Repair You may create a small energy pellet to heal your target for 2 HP.
Do multiple DamGuards on a target (from different people) block an attack each?
Shield mechanics / stacking breakdown:
I'm assuming Dam Return Shield doesn't prevent the target from taking damage?
The use of "reflect" in the ability makes it seem like it would, but I'm guessing no
Damage Reduction: Multiple applications stack multiplicatively. For example, two damage reduction shields will block 75% of damage from all attacks. Fractional damage is rounded up.
Damage Guard (Nullification): Multiple applications block multiple attacks, one per application.
Damage Return (Revenge): Target of attacks still sustain damage after other shields apply their effects. Only sustained damage is reflected. Multiple applications only stack their +1 additions and do not multiply the base damage.
No, one robot per player and we will hope for the best.
I know we're not there yet, but should we submit multiple Mans we might be so you can shuffle elements?
