Club PA 2.0 has arrived! If you'd like to access some extra PA content and help support the forums, check it out at patreon.com/ClubPA
The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I have detected an anomaly in the databanks. It seems we have been infested by a self replicating infection. I am preceeding in activation of our counter intrusition protocols. The first priority is to divide you into network hubs. List outputing now:
....it seems the files containing the lists has been corrupted. This infection is preceeding more rapidly than anticipated.
Very well, divide yourselves into groups!
Groups can be no larger than 15 members.
No person may belong to more than a single group.
Groups will be judged based on Awesomeness and Population.
The Best Group gets Candy.
You may choose to be an utter loser and not join a group. Loser.
I will host proboards for each group.
Groups do have another function in the game.
To officially form a group one member sends me a PM with the roster of the group, the name and mission statement of your group. Woe to he/she who appears on more than one Roster! More damn Woe to people who send me a shitload of PMs with minor updates! It's likely a good idea to wait until evening unless you have a full roster and can't possibly add another member.
There will be stuff to do with a direct impact on the game in the thread starting tomorrow evening. This will be before the PMs are redistributed. I am aiming to redistribute the PMs and have the main portion of the game start the following evening.
Read the rules on signing up before you post! Order does not determine who takes part!
I have a dream... of a phalla where we can all play the character of our role freely and openly. Where we can have Shaq attacking Mr Rogers. Where B:L's crazy rants could actually be part of the game. Where everyone is given material to try and have fun playing their character. Hell, we're in the roleplaying forum, aren't we?
To that end I'm going to ask any who sign up to be willing to try and protray the character they're given. I know it can be "weird" but you're on the internet. Nobody is going to point and laugh. I'd also love it if people would swap to appropriate avatars but I won't require it. I do promise that roleplaying will in no way harm your chances of succeeding at the game. I've taken a few steps to prevent that kind of thing.
I'm going to be doing things differently with this game and by "things" I am chiefly referring to sign ups. We could have a mad dash for x number of spaces where all that is required of you is to post some lime text. That however is boring and not especially fair. I'd much rather the x number of players who are most willing to contribute to the game. To that end....
How to sign up:
Take your time. You have loads to think this through properly. The first PM I get won't be judged any more favorably than the last.
Write a role PM and PM it to me, Deep Thought. This role PM should contain a brief description of the character. A link to a decent amount of info on the character. A description of a special Phalla ability that this role possess. For specifics see the next post.
This will obviously not be a quick process. In fact you'll notice that robothero's game is ongoing. This game will in no way start until that game finishes. I will spend the intervening time editing the roles, their abilities and then overlaying a traditional Phalla "evil" group(s) over top of those roles.
In this thread:
Let's keep this thread on topic. This is going to mean discussion of mechanic ideas, limited discussion of ideas for character roles, questions, clarification requests, so on and such.
