Breathe a little deeper, should you need to come undone

I have 2 copies of Tabletop Simulator to give away for people too if they need them and may be monetarily constrained. I can probably also stream it Inf, slide into my PMs if you want to hash out specifics.

This would be great, I'll hit you up when I'm at home cutie~

OPEN CHALLENGE
TIME TO GET SPOOKY MOTHER FUCKERS



Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to form a team of Goons to fight me 4 vs 1 in Fury of Dracula; wherein I will proceed to murder the gently caress out of you all as the titular namesake.
You would be incorrect in assuming that this is somehow an unfair fight for me in any way shape or form, as I can assure you Dracula will punch a hole clean through your chest if you are not prepared.



Requirements:
- A team of 4 players (I will not help you form the squad!)
- A copy of Tabletop Simulator
- This Fury of Dracula workshop module

Starting Time
Due to ~time zone nonsense~ It will be in the morning for me, as this time generally works out 'best' globally.
- 10 or 11am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard) November 1st
- 8 or 9pm EDT
- 5 or 6pm PDT
- 1 or 2am BST
(We can talk about what time works best for people)

Most games will take 2-3+ hours to play, please set aside time for this!

Streaming
- If someone could stream the event that would be great, as I am lazy and don't want to setup twitch again

How to Play
Here is the first of a 2 part episode of Fury of Dracula being played, and what inspired me to pick it up in the first place
I strongly recommend you watch the first episode at the very least to get an understanding of the basics.

In honor of me being an absolute tool who REALLY needs to work on her Pokemon Stadium LP, I will fight anyone in Pokemon Showdown. It's a browser-based Pokemon battle simulator. The format I choose is not my best, but it's definitely the one that's most on theme: Generation 1 OU.

Fight me, best of three rounds. If you win, you get to guilt me into working on my LP. If I win, I... probably still feel guilty about needing to work on my LP.

I'm down for this, just gimme a time to show up, I've never tried competetive Gen 1 so this should be pretty fun.

I don't know how to play FoD, but I'm willing to learn, if there isn't a bunch of more experienced hunters out there. (In which case, I'll step aside and watch the masters at work)
I have the added benefit of being Australian too, so that would potentially make timings easier! Although, I've never used Twitch, so I can't be much help there.

As a fellow Australian I'm also down for this if you need an extra body.

Round 1, and Round 2.

The first game was rough, but the second game I kind of feel bad about how poorly things went for Cup.

drat, not bad! That gengar came in handy, that first match - sneaky, dodging body slam (I think?) like that.
I wouldn't mind going against you in gen3/4 at some point, to be honest! I'm going away this weekend though, so I can't challenge either of you. But I'll have to start thinking about 'mon teams etc again I guess, for a potential showdown later on down the track

Sounds good to me! We just need two (or one if Relax or DIE joins, I guess?) more people and I'll start sharpening my stakes

Sounds good.

My sixth Pokemon was a Venusaur named BORT, but there was never a good chance to use him.

Yeah the idea of my Gengar was to have a swap in to normal attacks and hopefully pull off a sleep.

The big problem is that I get owned by earthquakes and didn't carry a special attack that could hit Rhydon.

Looking forward to brandishing our stakes against ol Dracula.

And to PMush I shall return for a rematch one day!

And hopefully make you bring out all your Pokemon this time round

I have a cunning plan that cannot fail, but I need to clear it with the mods first before I sink energy into it.

OK got mod approval for this, so here goes...

If you beat me in Fury of Dracula, I will be probated for 1 month

Click the banner for the thread

(Also I bought banner adds)

tl;dr
- Get 4 Goons together and challenge me. If you win I will eat a 1 month probe
- Will be streamed live on Halloween, and ShallNoiseUpon is graciously hosting
- You can donate to 'bet' on the outcome and get a gangtag if you choose the winner
- Currently trying to arrange guest commentators as well

Thread has all the info. Regardless come help raise money for charity!

(It is 100% not my intention to draw attention away from this thread, as I adore what's happening here, but I felt it warranted its own thread for discussion)
