It's really cold.
Look around and see for yourself the beauty of the Phalla star system. See the splendrous gas giants, the graceful comets, the burning space station. Smell the smoke...
"Ensign McLargeHuge, get your ass out of the holo observatory and up to Deck 3. The station's on fire again!"
"This is Interstellar Staffing Services, source of the finest discount station staff in Sector Q3. How can I help you today?"
"Uh, yeah, this is Captain Blaine. I need another new crew for Space Phalla 13."
"Captain Blaine, our records show that we sent you twenty-three staffers just three weeks ago."
"Well, they're all dead, and this time I need forty."
"Forty! That's the full complement of your station, yourself included! Shouldn't we make it thirty-nine?"
"You know what? I think I left half an engineer in cryostasis. Go ahead and call it thirty-nine."
"Half an engineer? Okay... but Captain Blaine, aren't you
still on the station?"
"Oh hell no, I'm currently on a collision course with Phalla Prime. I'll be baked to a cinder in just a few minutes. Listen, I'm going to need the best man you've got to be the new captain, because I sort of left a really important Top Secret mission unfinished on the station."
"We'll do what we can. Listen, I'm really sorry to hear about your impending doom, and not just because you're my best customer. Best of luck with your flaming death!"
"Same to you! Well, except for the dying part. And the superheated plasma. And the*fizz*crackle*hiss............."
Welcome to the Space Phalla 13 Signup Thread!
This game has been carefully, painstakingly balanced with assistance from thorgot. And after that, I threw in some extra fun stuff, and changed a thing here or there, so who knows how things will turn out?
This game is designed for forty players. Signups start now, and end whenever we reach forty, hopefully by Saturday evening. You may sign up for this game by posting some variation of the phrase I sign up
in bold and the color of your choice. Game days will end at 11:00 PM Eastern, and the first day will end on either Sunday or Monday; feel free to state your preference, but the final decision will be made by me, not by vote.
Any player who has fewer than two posts per day, or who misses two votes in a row, will be given one warning. A second violation of the rule will result in ejection from the game, and a ban from participating in the next three games. If something comes up and you have a good reason for not being able to participate, PM me
and we will talk.
The following forumers are not eligible to participate in this game due to inactivity in previous games:
Certain information, particularly specifics on roles, will be secret. However, I can share the following:
- There is only one bad guy group, the Traitors. The number of traitors will be revealed at the start of the game.
- Anti-instant network measures have been implemented. They include, but are not limited to:
- There are no guardians.
- Certain special roles may be held by traitors.
- There is a seer, and he/she will not be a traitor.
- There will be a nightly execution vote as usual, and no other votes.
