[Mini-phalla] Steampunk Epilogue: Village Wins

STEAMPUNK
A tale of intrigue and obscure mechanisms


steam.jpg

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to proudly present to you this invitation to the grand reception of a defining moment in our fair city’s history. We, as a populace, have been striving through generations for such a moment – from our small beginnings in the town of Phalla, where we bravely battled against wave after wave of unimaginable menace, to the magnificent erection of our glorious capital Wangcastle.

We live in a time of wonderment and invention; clockwork mechanisms power our workhouses; the development of the steam engine has fuelled the rapid covering of our fair land with railways and carriages, the likes of which would never have even graced our ancestors’ imaginations. Ladies of the night line our every street corner, ales of the darkest texture flow from every tap, and all are surely satisfied with their lot in life. How could they not be?

But now technology has striven to advance our selves even further towards unknown potential, and the call of countries far and foreign beckons us all. I humbly request of you, ladies and gentlemen, that you join me on a journey of discovery and excitement, a journey where we cast off the shackles of gravity and sensibility, and seek new land where fertile new discoveries may be made.

Ladies and gentlemen, I request that you attend the maiden voyage of the Airship Phallae!

What devilry is this?
This is a phalla for 25 people.

Phalla? What madness produces such a thing?
The forum's version of the party game, Mafia. See here for more details. General rules apply, including no anonymous contact between players, no direct quoting of role PMs, etc. If you set up an off-site proboard, please PM me the link to it.

Every day you must vote for a player who you suspect to be trying to sabotage the airship Phallae. Please !vote in red and !retract in lime. Retractions are not necessary, only your last vote will be counted.

But what shenanigans are present?
In addition to voting out suspicious players, the village must also make sure that the Phallae stays air-borne. Each night, the mafia will be able to damage sections of her; each villager will have the option to repair some of that damage. Unfortunate events may occur if the village allows the Phallae to become too badly damaged. More details of the mechanics involved in this will be included in the night 0 narration, and in your individual role PMs.

Each player will also have an inventory, and some of you may even be lucky enough to start with an item in it. Should a player carrying an item die, that item will be listed in the narration – the village can then vote as to who should receive each item. For example, if the narration lists Dac Vin’s Belt of Invulnerability to the Vote, you could elect to !give the Belt to Kime.

I promise that there are no hilariously broken roles like Orochi or Vlad in this game. Also, everything I say can be trusted. The unreliable narrator persona got ditched back in Noir York City.

Any rules questions can be asked in orange.

Sample PM:
You are quirkily renamed player, occupation.

Flavour text flavour text flavour text flavour text

You have the following ability:
Demonstration: Each night, you may be used as an example of a PM.

Your inventory contains:
Nothing!

Your win condition is: Remove the automaton threat to the Phallae, by eliminating all such robotic men.


The game day will most likely end at 0100 GMT.

    Good sir, I wish to secure a place in your phalla contest which is driven by the miracle of harnessed motive power derived from steam. If you would be so good as to include me in your list of participants?

    Good sir, if I were to detect even the slightest hint of vile sarcasm in your tone, my rage would burn the earth to cinders 'ere it abated. Gadzooks, man -- have you not the sense of humour that the good lord gave a whelk?

    My father piloted an airship for decades! It was nothing more than a balloon with bolts when he first laid his hands on it. By the time he was finished, most knew it by it's flagship name, The Arbiter.

    You, sir, are no gentleman. A gentleman could respond to the grave insult you have received with but a single course of action. I shall thank you to keep your self away from me and all the Quality on board this vessel until you have found what is left of your honor.
