[Phalla] Late Nite with Infidel and MrBlarney! (Game Over - Turtle Club victory)

Late night television is serious business. The industry is cutthroat, with hosts vying for timeslots and ratings, vainly attempting to stay afloat. Scandals, crossovers, publicity stunts, all manner of events influence the ratings and determine who stays and who goes. As aspiring hosts, you must garner those ratings and hold tight lest the dream slip away.

General Info

This is a standard phalla with a ratings/influence mechanic. Your cohosts are Infidel and MrBlarney. All PMs are to be sent to the Kitano account. All usual rules are in effect. Vote close is at 10PM PST / 12AM CST / 6AM UTC.

There will be a !red vote that eliminates the winner. That person will be fired and removed from the game.

There will also be a !lime vote that influences the ratings. Each player may make a vote that will increase the ratings of the target, and you may not target yourself.

In addition to the public ratings, players will have a private influence factor. Each night you should PM Kitano with your target. The value of your influence will be noted in your role PM. Again, you may not target yourself.

Networks!

No, not those networks. In this game, everyone will belong to a network. This will not be public knowledge except in circumstances such as headlining or upon elimination.

Every night there will be a ratings war. Ratings will naturally decay by a certain percentage, and all influences over them will then take place. The top rated host of each network will be revealed in the narration and be that network's headliner. The bottom rated host of each network will be fired and eliminated from play, so do your best!

Networks will be assigned randomly in an even fashion at the start of play. It is possible to change networks during the game. If you wish, you can include in your nightly PM the desire to change to a specific network. However, you will take twice the nightly decay doing so yourself.

Victory Conditions

The Turtle Club is a group of hosts hired by billionaire media tycoon Austin Turtle whose objective is to rule the Late Nite scene. If they are able to control three networks as headliners or are otherwise able to rule all networks should there be less than three, then they will be found victorious. Those not aligned with the Turtle Club's goals will win if they can thwart the Turtle Club's plans.

In addition, at the end of the game, the hosts who have found the most success as headliners will also gain special victory. There may be other awards given at the end of the game depending on performance.

Standard Disclaimers

Standard Phalla rules apply. Don't share host-provided PMs through direct quote or screenshot. No anonymous messages. Play nice. If you make a proboard, send us a link.

This phalla was conceived as follows:

[00:29] <@Infidel>; I should just pull something out of my ass
[00:29] <MrBlarney> I was hoping someone would stand up during the weekend, but no luck
[00:29] <@Infidel>; and people better like it dammit
[00:29] <MrBlarney> I would do something like that, except for the fact that I'm entirely not like that at all
[00:29] <@Infidel>; MrB
[00:29] <@Infidel>; you want to design a game tonight
[00:29] <@Infidel>; and post signups
[00:29] <@Infidel>; and see what happens?
[00:29] <@Infidel>; INFIDEL AND MRBLARNEY PHALLAPOT
[00:29] <@Infidel>; DELIRIOUS LATE NIGHT DESIGN
[00:30] <BL> CAN'T BE ANY WORSE THAN A BURNAGE PHALLA
[00:30] <MrBlarney> Hmm... I've got 12 hours before I need to be on campus tomorrow morning

That was 2.5 hours ago. You have yourselves to blame. You have been warned. :^:

    MrBlarney's Hosting Notes

    The Turtle Club has placed their hosts at the top of the COCK, ODAM, and WANG networks, securing Turtle Entertainment's position as the king of late night programming!

    Kilnaga and adventfalls also earn special victory for having the most headlining weeks (Kilnaga, 4) and for having the highest rating overall (adventfalls, 42).


    Delphinidaes and vagrant_winds also celebrate victory for their skills as agents, bringing success to their respective networks COCK and ODAM!
