    Oh this is over! Great job to my mafia bros!

    And yeah doing public analysis is always helpful, I always come across suspicious because of not posting enough (disregard the fact that I was actually mafia this time).

    I originally landed on Vice Man from a robot mafia joke in the discord - specifically thought it'd be funny to just be Clamps from futurama and pretend that wasn't at all suspicious - then thought of the pun, and like a week later realized the spelling was wrong. I'm just happy my mrpaku gambit paid off helped waste a day of village votes

    I think type deduction was still very much doable, but it depends on the target not reporting when they've been hit by an attack they're strong against.
    Letting other villagers know what charge/normal/quick/AoE types have hit you is pretty important after all.

    Whether that's grokable before the end of a single game, when it's not known that attacks that are ineffective don't do any damage, I'm not sure.

    If you have done as Gizzy did you'll see we'd worked out an ok type-deduction scheme and ditched it in favor of blast-bots.

    Was i the only fire type quick attack? I agree that fire wasn’t as represented as you’d figure.

    @Endless_Serpents those are fantastic, really capture the charm of the early days of the series!

    Host Notes:




    I think this came about through talking about Megaman with @MrBlarney but I don't know how that started. Initially I wanted some silly interactions like quick man the village vig getting killed when flashman activated his power. Bubble man being a reverse seer because who would ever pretend to be bubble man. MrBlarney had the idea to go full on battle game with a choose your own robot. There was a bit of initial planning but then other people were going to go. Eventually it looked like maybe other people weren't going to go so we had a final push to get things ready. I used my finest pain skills to make an elemental strength table. Upon seeing this horror, MrBlarney made the nice graphics you got to enjoy. (I did do the chalk on the form with my kids).

    Unfortunately the week I decided to start had a bunch of unforeseen issues and I had a lot of trouble with timely narration. I know some people are barely able to play because of work schedules and time zones and I felt very badly about cheating these people out of some of their limited playtime. This was all complicated of course by managing all the attacks and shields and elemental impacts manually. Luckily I played around with getting google sheets to do it for me for a long time before giving up and doing it on my notepad. I feel like I have a five year cycle where I run a complicated battle game, have to do a bunch of math and note taking on an actual notepad, swear to never do something so complicated again, and then do something even harder.

    Sigil>Space Pirates>Megaman Custom

    At least there weren't 50 players this time.

    As MrBlarney posted in the stats above, defensive powers were very very popular, including the under-performing repair. On the positive side, the village had very little village on village kills. On the negative they had almost no village on mafia damage.

    03767zwbalyp.png


    To talk about the actual game for a change, this game was another game where the seer is quickly killed off continuing the trend. SeGaTai day 2 here, Hollow Knight was Day 3 for Invictus, Final Fantasy 1 was day one for discrider. I didn't make a straight Vig or guard since everyone could be a vig and my god we didn't need anymore guards. To everyone on the village feeling bad about their performance, I think the village did more analysis then the average, especially at the end of the game. The mafia sacrificed people to have great vote records. The village did a lot of great analysis, but the mafia's credentials were too good in this game. Perhaps more scrutiny will happen in the future. Again I think discord is huge for mafia engagement. One trap the village fell into was softnetwork leaking to mafia. People tend to trust whoever they are talking to over people they are not talking to even if evidence is against their friends.

    I really enjoyed seeing everyone's robot names, and writing narration for them all. I'm glad people seemed to enjoy the narration. The positive feedback is very nice to get.

    I probably meant to say some other stuff but have forgotten.

    Let me know if there are any questions or things you especially liked or hated.

    Looks like we are going to have a good season for phalla heading into fall, I know MrBlarney is working on something and I might potentially get a game out that I started in January 2012 this fall. Crazy times.

    Yeah no, I think this game needed a straight vig.
    Something similar to the Mafia kill that didn't take reflected damage.

    Segatai seered me, then died before anything else could be done. :lol:

    As for seers dying quickly, I take no responsibility for dying quickly if I'm a special.
    Not dying quickly is too suspect.

    I'm pretty sure we were chatting on Steam about the games we were playing before talking you deciding to go about creating another Phalla, but I also don't really know where the Mega Man theme came from. Based on the Discord convos after committing to the project, there's a few additional tidbits perhaps worth noting.
    • Mega Man was originally penciled in as a Serial Killer role, before I convinced you to go with the full battle game route.
    • All Player HPs are, of course the standard 28 HPs to match the theming from the Classic series of games.
    • There was also brief talk of expanding the ability selection at the start of the game to be one offensive ability + one defensive ability, which would have probably shifted the theming to be more on the X series of Mega Man games.

    I picked Repair because I figured everyone would be bloodthirsty, and that Repair would be the least common option.

    I feel like I don't understand you all anymore, going for defensive stuff instead of punching harder :D

    Eh. I went AoE because everyone was taking defensive stuff and someone needed to try and stop the charge powers.
    Maybe not the best vs spike shields but meh

    I picked guts and normal attack because I assumed they'd both be the least common choices. I kinda wonder how many guts choosers were in the same boat

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    I thought fire and water would be less common.
    Was surprised by how few metal there were.

    Starting with a second ability would have been great.

    Or gaining an ability if you made it to day X.

    Ah yes! That’s what I was going to mention above. I was going to open things up to pick another ability as the game progresses but I was overwhelmed with the work just to keep it going as is so I never brought it up. That’s one of the hallmarks of mega man, powering up as you go. I think it was the element system that added the extra layer that overwhelmed me.
