Man, I'm bored. There is never anything on television these days.

Ugh. Seen it.

Eww! Desperate Housewives? I think not!

Boooooooooring. I may as well just cancel my cable. I'll just use the internet to keep up with House and Heroes.

What the... isn't this that douche from that stupid lie detector show? Wait... is it really? They made another one? Oh god, I've got to see this...

    Tonight, we take you back to Temptation Island, and it's going to be hotter than ever! This year, we've got more couples, we found even more singles, and there is no doubt that there will be more twists than anyone could expect.

    Join me, Mark Walberg, as I take you back to the island. Let's see who can resist... the temptation.

    *****

    Welcome to the Temptation Island Phalla. I, Mark L. Walberg, will be your host for this game of Phalla. If you're not sure what a Phalla is, check out this link.

    This game will be fairly traditional in structure (not a faction game, there is a Mafia, etc.). However, the mechanics will be largely hidden and could be somewhat controversial. Some favourite and some hated mechanics may play out in this game, so this is your warning, I guess.

    The Basic Rules in the information thread all stand. To emphasise, there should be no communication between living players and dead players, but dead players can talk amongst themselves. If you are talking with someone, via any medium, and they do not know who you are (your PA identity), that counts as anonymous communication and is against the rules. Remember to send me any links to all ProBoards and the like. Thanks.

    Voting will close each night at 2200 EST, with the first night ending Wednesday, March 25th. Players should vote in bold Red for the player they wish to remove from the game each night. Retractions are not necessary, but they should be in bold Lime if you want to use them. In-thread Clarification requests should be made in Orange.

    Actions, private-clarifications, and any other game-related PMs should be sent to Mark L. Walberg. If that account fills up, send PMs to LaOs.

    Sign-Ups will go on through this weekend. Please indicate your interest in some Pretty Colours. I will be out of town but will answer questions when I get back. I'm shooting for 80 but will accept as low as 60, so I hope you all sign up. :D The Night 0 Narration will explain the motivation and more of the actual game situation.

    Reserves:

    Villager PMs:
    Everyone received either the Couples or Singles Villager PM. I had meant to post this earlier--my bad.
    Couples:
    Good morning «Name» («Player»),

    When you heard that FOX was bringing back that tacky reality television show, Temptation Island, you and your partner, «Couple» («Partner»), laughed, looked one another in the eyes, and excitedly shouted, "let's do it!"

    So, here you are, on an island in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do but have the time of your life. Sure, there are the Singles and other Couples out there to mingle with, but there's also apparently a number of religious Zealots that you need to track down and kick off the island. Not only are they a buzzkill, the FOX executives need you to get rid of them to save the ratings. Even though you and «Couple» («Partner») have been together for quite a while, you can't be sure that «Pronoun» isn't part of the problem.

    Each night, !Vote in Bold Red for the Player you think is a Zealot working against fun and good times. Send all questions via PM to Mark L. Walberg or ask in the gamethread in Bold Orange.

    On any three separate nights, you may also voice your Suspicions of any player to the Host; PM that player's name for the Host to take note of. When a player becomes too suspicious, the Host will take special action.
    Singles:
    Good morning «Name» («Player»),

    You were hanging out in a beachside club when a man in a suit approached you. "«Player»," he said, "you've been selected by the producers at FOX Television to appear on a new reality television show."

    You sat quietly, finishing your drink, while he rambled on and on about a rebirth of Temptation Island. When he finished talking and asked you again if you would like to appear on the show, you said yes. How hard could it be, anyway, joining a reality television show on a tropical island as a specially-selected Single there to party and tempt a number of foolish Couples into infidelity? Plus, it was a perfect opportunity to work on your tan!

    Unfortunately, somehow some lame fundamentalists managed to weasel their way into the cast and are putting a pretty big downer on your fun times. The Zealots don't believe in fun, it seems, and that's just not cool.

    Each night, !Vote in Bold Red for the Player you think is a Zealot working against fun and good times. Send all questions via PM to Mark L. Walberg or ask in the gamethread in Bold Orange.

    On any three separate nights, you may also voice your Suspicions of any player to the Host; PM that player's name for the Host to take note of. When a player becomes too suspicious, the Host will take special action.

    And !Wildcat will be my pick of the night.

    What's that jazz about different colors for stuff? What significance is that if we all could just vote in red?

    The Red vote is for the traditional Village vote. The Winner of this vote will be removed from the game.

    The Couple and Single votes have a lesser effect on the game but are still "real." Activity, however, will only be judged based on the Red vote, so at least make that one.

    Read the narration, silly. Couples vote to stop a Single from "tempting" anyone. Singles vote to keep a Couple (one person of a Couple) alone for the night to do "their naughtiest".

    Can we vote for the Single vote if we are a Couple? And does it count?

    Only Singles can cast the Magenta vote and only Couples can cast the DeepSkyBlue vote. If someone from one group tries to cast a vote meant for the other group, I will simply ignore it. It would be sweet if you didn't do that, though.

    3.
    For the Record:
    Couple-hood and Single-ness, as well as Gender and your Character names, were all determined randomly. Nothing should be read into any of it mechanics-wise.

    Your masoned with Simonwolf. In marriage.

    What are you talking about Exarch for? What exactly is this masoning for?

    Warban.16

    No, an extra role pm saying that Oliver (Tommy2Hands) and Olivia (Exarch) have been friends since collage, and are thus masoned.
    Edit: I'm not sure if I'm allowed to quote role pm's is the problem, otherwise, I would totally post it.

    Players are free to quote whatever PMs they receive from other players.

    Players are not allowed to quote or copy PMs they receive from me. However, players can talk about or paraphrase PMs or portions of PMs from me.

    6.
    not sure what to make of the TT/spawnbroker thing, so !Element Brian

    I'm not gonna do a singles vote tonight because we still don't know what, if anything, happens if we break up all the couples.

    in fact, doubt we'll get an answer, but worth a shot:
    Does the game end if all the couples are broken up?

    No.

    Damn, I hate work.

    Do we have to vote for a couple?

    The Red vote is the only required Vote.
