[Phalla] Heroes - Volume 1: Origins

Where does it come from, this quest? This need to solve life's mysteries, when the simplest of questions can never be answered. Why are we here? What is the soul? Why do we dream? Perhaps we'd be better off not looking at all. Not delving, not yearning. That's not human nature. Not the human heart. That is not why we are here.

The Human Genome Project has discovered that tiny variations in man's genetic code are taking place at increasingly rapid rates. Teleportation, levitation, tissue regeneration. This is no longer outside the realm of possibility.

A painting of a grim future has been produced by a comic book artist, Isaac Mendez, with an uncanny talent for seeing the future. A number of groups feel very conflicted about this painting; some are actively trying to prevent it, while others want to see it happen. In all of this, the serial killer known as Sylar is still loose somewhere in the country, taking powers from others and using them for himself.

Everyone assembled here is interested in the bomb, whether for good or for bad. The question simply remains; will you let it happen?

Narrations

Gameplay and Rules
Each night everyone will get to vote for a person they believe suspicious. At the end of the round, the person (or people) with the most votes will be arrested (essentially out of the game), and the voting begins anew for the next round. If you vote for someone, you may not go back and edit your vote away. You must make a new post that says you retract the vote. Votes and retractions should be framed as such, or at least similarly:

I !vote to have Hylianbunny arrested.

I !retract my vote to have Hylianbunny arrested.

The voting closes each night at 10pm Eastern. The first round will end on Monday, July 16th. Those who have special abilities need to PM me their intentions by 9:45pm Eastern to use their powers. Furthermore, you may not contact anyone anonymously, share role PMs (though you can explain your role if you so wish), or post in the thread once you die. You may not contact anyone once you are dead, and you may not contact the dead if you are living, unless told otherwise. Everyone is allowed one goodbye post that may not have any pertinent information. I am told mods will be watching. There will be no dead thread either. Suck it up and wait for the endgame.

Activity Clause
Two posts a day or you are out. If you will be gone for a day, or few days, contact me so that I can announce it to the thread. If you are a special, I will give you a chance to give orders in advance. Otherwise, you die in the next narration. Everyone gets a free pass in round one, as last time we axed certain people too quickly. I don’t really pay as much attention to the activity clause as some people, so don’t worry about it too much.

Roles
There are a number of sides in this game of Phalla, with evolved humans in each group. Groups may have alternate win conditions.

As time goes on, special events may occur which alter the rules slightly. Alterations in this fashion will be announced.

There are five to eight baddies.
There are three to four seers, with different powers.
There are not yet any guardians.
There is at least one vigilante.

    Long as you vote before Monday at 10:00 EST, that's fine. I'm considering bumping up the first day's finish to 22 hours from now, though.

    I'll edit the OP with the decision within the next few minutes. :P

    As valuable as having just the right amount of change?

    What constitutes the right amount anyways?

    If the right amount is a million dollars, will I have it in change?

    Since we don't know how many of every special there is, that really throws a wrench in the whole "examine everything under a microscope" idea.
