8 on the Kinsey scale






Every four years, the finest fighters the world over gather in the city of Erratzia for the Tournament of Heroes. A ten-day festival, complete with exotic dishes, street vendors, and performers, people come from all across the continent to watch the most elite gladiators the world has to offer fight for fame, glory, and a substantial sum of gold. However, there are rumors that this year a contingent of combatants has come with the intention of winning through less than honorable means. By steel, spell, or cunning, can you rout these rogues and restore the integrity of the Tournament?

Welcome to Tournament of Heroes, a game of mafia for 17 players! In this game, you will take on the role of an entrant in a world-class fighting tournament. However, there are several among you who want to cheat and murder their way to victory, and it's up to you to stop them!
This game is going to have a bunch of unorthodox roles, and a number of mechanisms to encourage player activity and participation, including daily mod challenges and lots of items, so it's sure to be a blast!
There's also going to be a bit of a choose your own flavor component, so when you sign up, please also send me a PM with:
  • A name for your fighter
  • Your area of expertise: Combat, Trickery, or Magic
  • Your favored way of dealing with your foes. For example, a favorite weapon, kind of magic, poison, etc.
  • What made you become a fighter?
  • Why have you entered the Tournament?
  • What motivates you? Gold? Fame? Personal glory? Something else entirely?
Additionally, if you could include your timezone and/or the hours you're generally available, it will help me plan out when to schedule the mod challenges so that as many people can participate as possible.

SAMPLE VANILLA TOWN ROLE PM

quote:

you are a Town Combatant. You are a trained pit fighter and have entered into the Tournament of Ages to win fame, glory, and gold. You are vanilla town and have no powers; your weapon is your vote. However, your training does grant you a slight edge. If you have no items and take part in a challenge, you will get a slight bonus in that challenge. You win when all threats to town are eliminated

:siren:RULES OF THE TOURNAMENT:siren:
  • Days will be about 72 hours. Nights will be 12-24 hours. There will be a Twilight phase.
  • Your flavor may have a bearing on your role and alignment. It may not. Be aware.
  • Mod challenges will occur at least once per game day. In order to take part, you must make a ##challenge in-thread within the specified timeframe.
  • During mod challenges, ALL out of thread communication will be forbidden.
  • This will be a game with fairly heavy item use. Each player will have an inventory with at least two item slots. Some will have more, but two will be the standard.
  • If your inventory is full and you gain another item, you choose one of the items in your inventory to publicly drop. Other players may attempt to ##snatch that item for themselves.
  • Each night , a player can perform a single action granted by their role, and a single item. If a player has multiple possible actions from their role, or multiple items, they can still only use one of each type.
  • Passive or reactive items and abilities trigger automatically and do not count against a player's number of actions.
  • All nightkills, regardless of origin, resolve simultaneously.
  • If a situation somehow arises where all players are dead, neither team wins and the result is a Spectator Victory. Blood for the blood god.

In addition, Standard Mafia Rules apply:
  • No editing your posts. Ninja edits for spelling, etc., are fine so long as the forums don't catch them
  • No OOT communication unless your role PM explicitly says otherwise
  • No posting your role PM or any other mod communication unless I explicitly tell you you can
  • No deadposting with the exception of a single content-free ghostpost
  • No spectator posting EXCEPT during challenges
  • No encrypting your posts, playing truth or dare, or Toxxing
  • No posting after hammers or while there are unresolved day actions. If there is one and it doesn't look like I've seen it, feel free to contact me OOT to let me know
  • No lurking! At the end of day 1, if you have fewer posts than me plus votefinder, I will replace you. If it happens on day 2 or later, I will modkill you.
  • No being a dickhead! Things' getting a bit heated is to be expected, but getting nasty and personal is not acceptable.

Not at all, I made a pretty detailed fantasy character with a robust back story.

You know what? Just sign me up as a regular. The 24 hour night cycles makes things slow and a third game should help alleviate the boredom. Unless all three games end up on a night cycle at the same time! :psyduck:

I'll figure out a character and send a PM by tomorrow. I won't be Hollywood Hulk Hogan. :v:

I sent this last night but forgot to add my availability. I'm usually available and around a computer between 7pm-12am during the week. Weekends and Tuesdays are more erratic but I'll almost always be able to at least phone post even if I'm not able to give it my full attention.

The oddest thing I have ever written was a continuing series, starting at 1, where I add two to the previous number.
