[Phalla] Unknown Armies: GAME OVER! SERIAL KILLER ALLIES WITH VILLAGE IDIOT!

Jason ToddJason Todd Registered User regular
edited September 2009 in Critical Failures
This is a phalla. If you don't know what a phalla is go learn, then come back and play!

This phalla is themed around the indie RPG Unknown Armies. It features obsession, assassins, magick, conspiracy theories, mad men, living gods, sex, and violence.

Think Pulp Fiction with autistic wizards.

----
There is an occult underground.

Beneath the living mirror of heaven, beneath the world of our desires, there are streets with secret names. They connect the back alleys of civilization with the urine-stained vacant lots of the cosmos.
You can't call information for the underground's phone number. It doesn't advertise in Rolling Stone. There are no maps that show its borders.

But you know it exists. It has to exist. You know it in your bones.
You know because you've heard the rumors. A song that drives people to suicide. A man whose face melts with each dawn. A videotape that shows the birth of a goddess.

Some seek the occult underground for power: the power to change their bodies, change their lives, change the world.

Others seek the occult underground for knowledge: the knowledge of their hearts, of their dreams, of the cosmos itself.

Everyone finds what they desire. But few know what their desire truly is until it is upon them.

You need to know more. The world you know is not enough for you. You want to go deeper. At times you want to let go of reality and let yourself slip into some kind of pure understanding. Anything would be better than daily life.

You know there is a place, a place of ideas, and that it contains all of your desires.

A place where Adepts pursue strange obsessions, casting aside friends and family to acquire power and personal truth.

A place where Avatars channel the Archetypes at the heart of the human experience, gaining godlike power in the process.

But there is danger there. People vanish, die horribly, become madmen, for the sake of whatever the secret is that lies at the heart of the unseen world.

Basic Rules
-Normal phalla rules are in effect (i.e. no screen caps, forwarding PMs, anonymous contact, etc)
-Two Posts and a Vote per Day, Minimum. Inactives will die.
-Send me links to proboards
-!Vote in Red
-!Clarifications / Clarification Requests are in orange
-Voting will end each night at 11 PM EST

Rumors
Each player will receive a rumor in their role PM. Each day a rumor will be made public. If the rumor made public is the rumor you received in your role PM, your vote will be randomly increased by 1-4 for that day. This increase represents the power of information in the occult underground. However, some rumors are false. If your rumor is false your vote will still be increased by 1-4, but your vote will count as negative. Negative votes subtract from the total votes against a player.

Jail
Several roles are able to throw other players into jail. Players in jail cannot target anyone but other inmates with any powers they possess. However, free players can target players in jail. Jailed players cannot vote.

Conversion
There are limited conversion mechanics in this game. If this bothers you, don't sign up.

Welcome to the occult underground. Beneath the living mirror of heaven, above the streets with secret names, there is the world of our desires: the occult underground. You are a part of this world.

The occult underground is not made up of ordinary people. It comprises obsessed visionaries, mystic degenerates, hardcases with doctorates, fallen pagans, renegade scholars, drug-dealing hermaphrodites, actors who refuse to be seen or heard, military vets bent for Masons, children raised as gods, sewer dwellers, kill-crazy psychos inspired by Logan's Run, worshipers of cardboard boxes, those who know the language of cats, secret societies of grocery-store clerks, the followers of James Dean, holistic terrorists, stigmatic talk-show hosts, that kid in third grade who ate his thumb, autistic clairvoyants, old souls in new bodies, practitioners of Tantric channel-surfing, JFK-suicide conspiracists, people who believe we never landed on the moon, people who believe they landed on the moon, and people who believe they are the moon.

The mundanes can't figure you out. It doesn't matter if you punch a clock at an auto shop or collect a six-figure salary at a global conglomerate. It's not important if you're the most reliable person at your job or if you get fired every couple months. You just have this vibe that tells the straight world not to look too closely. Normal people who get into your life get out again pretty damn quick. They don't understand that what you do is not who you are.

Each day you must vote for one member of the occult underground to be killed. It's a rough world out there.

Win Condition: Eliminate all threats to the occult underground.

    Even across the two posts that PoRD had? Wow. That's just how I roll, with long OPs. Of course, Fire Emblem also has the advantage of a long list of questions and answers.

    Anyways, it's been a while since I played, and since I decided I would try to get a game in either as a player or host before PAX, I'll !sign up. I don't know anything about the theme, but I guess I'll learn quickly...
