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 [New, Revised and Improved] steps to prevent that kind of thing.
This game is going to focus much more heavily on Roleplaying than the last. If you're uncomfortable posting in a character you're given please do not sign up.
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, this game will in no way start before Sunday, possibly later. 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.

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.
