[PHALLA] Death Note :: Game Over

NearNear Registered User
edited November 2007 in Critical Failures
This ODAM Phalla is based on the Death Note series. If you are not familiar with Phalla, it is PA's special blend of Mafia, check out previous Phalla threads if need be. If you are not familiar with Death Note, don't worry. It's not required, but to be honest it likely will help a bit.

This is a hidden mechanics game. This is where knowledge of the series is most helpful. However, I expect there will be quite a lot of speculation publicly about roles from those who are in-the-know, so this should lessen the gap.

Infidel is your host. The Shinigami account will be for clarifications and housekeeping, so if you have any questions at any time you can post or PM. The Near account is for narrations and will receive all orders. If it impacts the game, it goes to Near. Ardor has tried to break my game and given sound advice, and if necessary he will help cover hosting duties.

______________________________________________________________

RULES

Each day will last 24 hours. The day ends at 11:00pm EST. Posts and private messages on or after 11:00pm EST will be considered part of the next day.

Actions are to be PM'd to Near.

Do not share any PM's from the host with other players, or otherwise try to prove yourself on technicalities that validate information as coming directly from the host. (i.e. "this image links to the GM's image webhost") It should be up to the player to earn trust, not use the host's materials to earn it.

Every day detectives will !vote a player to be confined in a cell. Retractions are not necessary, your last vote will count. Edited posts will not be counted for votes, make sure your vote is reposted if you must edit. This of course means you must repost to change your vote. Confinement does not expire.

It is in everyone's interest to check the thread now and then. Events will be frequent in this game. The time they start may vary, but they will never end before day close, so as long as you can check towards closer to vote close you will be fine.

Everyone will receive the detective PM, do not read anything into who it is addressed to.

Requests for clarifications should be made in a PM to Shinigami or posted here in orange bold

Clarifications

The rules that you may know of the Death Note have been adapted to Phallasize em.

Events can be optional. As always, go with your interpretation of things, there are no required actions unless I state otherwise.

Confinement and death both remove the player from play. Players removed from the game should not communicate anything regarding it. There will be no dead thread.

    Kira.

    The name known throughout the world. A Japanese mass murderer known by the mangling of pronouncing "killer". It all started several years ago, when criminals died of heart attacks suddenly and inexplicably. Soon it was clear that they were being targeted. People feared and praised Kira. Supporters and denouncers sprung up everywhere. Media focused on his celebrity. Eventually he addressed the world. Kira was set to "cleanse this rotting world of evil", and continued to purge criminal after criminal.

    Eventually it was deduced that Kira could only kill you if he had a face and a name. But that did not make the killings any less real or frequent, and bit by bit the world turns to support his ideal.

    The police and investigative teams from all over worked on the case. But Kira would kill more than just criminals. He would slay all those who defied him. Eventually there were not many with the conviction to pursue him. This Kira investigation team is the last of the Japanese police who are willing to put their life on the line to catch a crazed killer.
    ______________________________________________________________

    The investigation headquarters took up several floors, providing a relatively comfortable environment. Living quarters, offices, briefing rooms, kitchens. The team lived and breathed the Kira case. Details were highly classified, including who is on the team, due to the extreme risk taken by every member. Only the team knows who and what is involved in the Kira case.

    It has been an arduous and tragic investigation. Many members have lost their lives in the pursuit of Kira over the years. The worst blow of all was the death of "L", the top detective in all the world who led the Japanese police in their investigation. The team trudges on, following leads and compiling data, hoping to find some clue to Kira's identity. But the loss of L has wounded the morale and enthusiasm of everyone. Today there only remains fifty detectives working together.

    Among the breakthroughs made in this case, the biggest has to be the retrieval of a Death Note. Unbeknown to anyone outside the team, the Death Note is the instrument of Kira. It is how he kills with only a name. The person whose name is written will die. It remains locked in a coded safe, property of the team and divulger of several secrets that help the police. Not only did the Death Note bring in information, it also brought a guest. A shinigami, a death god! All those who have touched the note can see it, and all those on the team have touched it.
    ______________________________________________________________

    It is late in the evening. The chief has called a general meeting and everyone gathers in the largest of the briefing rooms. A tension hangs over the crowd, abnormally quiet for this many. When all have assembled, the chief stands and takes up a position at the head of the team.

    "Everyone. We have been contacted by another organization. The Secret Provision for Kira, or the SPK. The leader of which purports to be the successor to L." The detectives murmur with their neighbours. "He says he is working with the FBI and US government on the Kira case, and wishes to establish the sharing of investigative research. The US officials back up his claims."

    The chief clears his throat. "He has a vital message to be shared with us all." He turns to the side and a detective at the door dims the lights. The screen at the front wall lights up, on it a wash of white with a large black "N" dead center.

    The speakers crackle as a modulated voice starts. "This is N of the SPK. I know the secret of L's death, for I am his successor. Your team will bring about the end of the Kira case very soon. That is, because one of you is Kira."

    The team starts to banter at this, many with confused looks, some shouting in protest. A detective shoots from his chair. "What?! Who are you to say such things?" The chief glares at him.

    "Sit down, Squashua-san" the chief admonishes with a gruff voice. "Let him finish."

    The voice behind the "N" continues. "Indeed. It is certain that Kira is among your men, I have sent along my findings behind this to verify yourself. With your cooperation, we will finally catch Kira."

    The chief nods and continues the line. "We will all confine ourselves to headquarters. Continue your work and investigations, we will methodically deduce which one of us is Kira. Everyone will be tested including myself. We will confine one person each night at 11pm, and given the 23 hour rule we can deduce in a day's span if that person is Kira if the killing stops. I expect all of you to comply, this is for the good of us all and indeed the world. Confinement will hold until this case is closed."

    The room argues with each other, questioning the plan. FreeAgent speaks out, "Why wouldn't Kira stop killing to frame someone else?"

    "Because," N speaks, "now we are at the moment of truth. The pressure will mean Kira cannot stop now, he must carry on or be caught."

    FreeAgent, his face growing pale, "Then doesn't that mean he'll just target-"

    The chief grimaces in pain and clutches his shirt. He tumbles to the floor, detectives at the front rushing to his aide.

    "CHIEF!"

    but if I say no what will he say when I cough

    maybe I'll say yes, an explain that it's just something in advance

    it is getting to be the flu season after all


    but what if he knows that we're Australia and it's not anywhere near the flu season

    It's all very simple see

    If he doesn't want to die he needs to get the shot

    But if he wants to live he needs to stay hidden and not leave the premises

    But if he wants the shot he'll have to come forward as Kira

    Why

    Because of

    Something

    That I figured out 30 chapters ago

    so I guess he's giving out everybody the Detective PM first, then sending out the individual "har you're a dick" role PMs afterwards

    it's a pretty good move, makes it to where good guys can't validate the bad guys by PM roles.

    Indeed. Who will throw the first stone, and against whom will they direct their vote toward? From the look of the mechanics, voting for someone may not necessarily kill them (only lock them up temporarily), but who knows. Gotta find someone who will take the first hit...

    Right. The 23-hour limit thing (rather than 23-day limit) makes it so that Kira can't be devious and delay his kills, which is probably a good thing for the police force. Not that having deaths on a regular basis is particularly good, either.

    I'll return Hylianbunny's serve with a vote right back... I !vote Hylianbunny for confinement.

    What a wonderful start.

    Well, it depends.

    We know how it functions in the manga; we don't necessarily know how that translates to Phalla. I'd guess it works similarly to Lanfear (three 'vigilante' kills or so), perhaps with an additional bonus if contact is made with a certain person. It's also entirely possible that Kira has supporters.

    Possibly. Knowing how things work can help, but if you base your actions on assumptions which turn out to be false well then that could be bad. It's not easy to say how this could come up since I know not only know Death Note but all of the Phalla details. :P

    It is in everyone's interest to check the thread now and then. Events will be frequent in this game. The time they start may vary, but they will never end before day close, so as long as you can check towards closer to vote close you will be fine.

    "But, who is Kira?"

    Nothing abusive in there, but please either post translations with non-English words or do not post non-English. It generally annoys people in Phalla because it's a hassle to translate if you don't know it but it's not really secret so it's likely harmless but is it? etc.

    And as far as everyone is concerned, confinement is permanent as per the narration.
