[Phalla] Folie à Plusieurs - GAME OVER, Freemind Anarchist victory

Folie à Plusieurs

Everyone knew that the Mind Police kept New Avernus safe, even if they didn't know how. You could maybe get away with something for a little while, but they always came for you in the end. If you broke the law, you could never run fast enough or far enough to escape the inevitable.

That's what everyone thought, anyway.

But people on the Bottom knew better. They weren't as important as the people on the Middle and Upper Floors. On the Bottom, some small crimes slipped through the cracks--gambling, prostitution, petty hacking--cockroaches preying on other cockroaches. Even the memory junkies were left alone for the most part, begging and borrowing and stealing to get enough credits for their next fix. But sometimes, someone went too far.

It was supposed to be a secret, but secrets had a nasty habit of refusing to stay that way. An Upper Floor businessman had been murdered, some famous multi-billionaire playboy, and the Mind Police hadn't caught the killer. Oh, they made a big show of arresting a Bottom-dweller and publicly executing him. But soon, an Upper Floor politician was killed along with his Middle Floor mistress, and another public execution followed. By the third murder, of a notorious Bottom-dwelling memory dealer, the Mind Police realized that they were dealing, not with isolated incidents, but with a calculating serial killer. They couldn't keep blaming Bottom-dwellers without raising suspicion, but for the first time in their history, the Mind Police had no clues, no leads, and no idea where to begin.

Or did they...




Disclaimer: I have done my best to make this a balanced game but there may be aspects to the mechanics that will have unforeseen consequences. I have left some room to make adjustments on the fly as needed in the event that issues present themselves, but that may not be enough for this to run as smoothly as other games have. Please give this some consideration before signing up.


Sign up in the color of your choice, and specify a gender if it matters to you, otherwise you will be male. Gender has no effect on the game, only on the narration.


The game will begin tomorrow night unless we have insufficient players, in which case signups will be extended for an additional day.


Votes and actions must be submitted by 9pm EST.

Actions:
Every day, you must vote in red to point a finger at who you think is the serial killer. The winner of the vote will be arrested and publicly executed.

Daily actions should be PMed to Folie. One PM per day, please.


House rules:
You may not communicate regarding the game with someone who is dead.

You may not use any anonymous method of communication to discuss the game. Forum-based PMs, external IMs, e-mails and other message boards (like proboards) are allowed as long as the person you are talking to knows who you are. Send me links to any proboards.

You may not use screencaps to "prove" anything to anyone.

Everyone gets a "flavor" role in the game. Bad guys and good specials get a normal "villager" role in addition to their special role. This keeps people from using their initial PM to verify someone else's role.

Some roles may have additional rules to follow, which will be contained in the role PMs.

FAQ/Clarifications:
What is Phalla? See here for details.

What roles are being used? I will not answer this question so don't bother asking.

Is this a faction game? Not yet.

What is the order of actions? Vote is last, beyond that I will not say.

    For I am a boring person, of no consequence.

    So you don't have to vote for me.

    That reminds me, I forgot to put in gender. I wish to be a pretty female.

    This will not help the confusion regarding my sexual preference. :|
