The Third Annual Phalla Awards
Known as the most meddlesome meddlers to ever be, the Phallites have had their hand in an incredible amount of key events that have taken place in the histories of all the species, cultures and universes ever to exist. Fabled tricksters and legendary leaders, they drop in and out of the lives of great heroes and monstrous villains in order to push their own agendas.
Years ago, the battles between Phallites caused the deaths of hundreds, waves of destruction exploding from any point of conflict. Hundreds of individuals who could play the most powerful individuals like puppets fought against each other in the most bitter battles, blind to the greater picture. It was in this chaotic situation that the great Thorgot plotted, schemed, weaving a spidery web of lies and intrigue unlike any previously seen.
In a period of days, he activated his trap. All Phallites were caught off guard, too invested in their own personal conflicts to have the force mustered to counter him. His victory was absolute.
he decreed, "You have lost a sense of your original purpose, too invested in unpleasantness to realise the damage you do to yourselves, and all of reality! Thus, I have created the Phallawards to remind us all that this is a game, and not something more serious or sinister, and all those who do not attend will have the snot beaten out of them!"
And thus, every year, Phallites meet up to recognise past achievements, congratulate each other for old efforts, and learn from previous mistakes. This is the third annual Phallawards, a celebration of all that we have ever achieved!
