every good idea is bound to be ripped off someday. And every rip off would be ripped off again, and so on. it's the brutal cycle of creativity, and I am going to continue it.

In honor of the Smilie Championship, which was a great idea from Kiwee (thanks kiwee!), and the Lord of the Rings, a great idea/world from Tolkien (hail Tolkien), comes the Middle Earth 5th Age championship.
Instead of cute little smilies, we have starships from 4 of the different races from Middle Earth: Elves, Humans, Dwarfs, Hobbits and Orcs.
In addition, we have 3 different classes of starships: Attack Fighters, Heavy Fighters and Frigates.

now...

gameplay
each person designs his or her ship, then fights with and beside others by using certain items they choose, like a weapon or health pack. this is done by making posts in another topic, preferabbly a formated post, that is, one that contains the pic, hull, team name, shield, armor, ammo, etc.

an attack takes off the same amount of health as it's number. a 30 attack takes off 30 health.

now, the health of a ship is the Hull.

a ship also has a shield, which is the one initially hit and when worn down, the hull starts taking damage. simple. if you ever watched star trek, you'd be well familiar with this concept. the shield also regenerates over time(after each post). the shield cannot regenerate beyond it's initial capacity, nor can the hull be "fixed" past it's.

now, we also have armor. the armor rating is the percent taken off an attack.
a ship with 20 armor would only take 32 from an 40 attack. pertains only to hull. all attacks and armor are in intervals of 10, so it is easy to calculate. just times the first digit from the armor and the first digit from the attack and you have the points taken off from the attack.
(good idea, Cheesestorm... i think I'll rip off of it)

the rules.
they are pretty much similar to that of the Smilie Championship, but with some extra stuff
-no double posting.
-you can't attack a person again unless they made a move. you, however, can attack other people.
-one action per post
-every day you do not post, you recieve attrition damage, that is, -20. this is first taken off shields, and then when they are gone, it is taken off the hull.
-there is no friendly fire (this is a team-based game)


any questions, I'll answer them.

now, all you need to do is design your ship. choose race, class, name, items and look.

Here are the ship classes:

Attack Fighter
this is a pretty standard ship, there can really be one when there is only 3 choices...
template:

Inventory spaces: 8
Hull (health): 100
Shield: 100
Shield Regen: 5 (the ship gains 5 extra shield points at the end of each post)


Heavy Fighter
the Heavy Fighter has a higher Hull rating than the Attack fighter, but less inventory spaces
template:

Inventory spaces: 7
Hull (health): 125
Shield: 100
Shield Regen: 5


Frigate
now this is a unique ship. It is manned by two people, and because of that, can do double posts(but each person cannot do a double post. person A can post, than person

B then they will both have to wait till someone else posts.
in addition, the Frigate can transfer it's shield points to an ally ship, up to 50.
(yeah, that's right... I threw this one out for you, G4C and DR! you know you want one...)
template:

Inventory spaces: 12
Hull (health): 200
Shield: 150
Shield Regen: 5

now, on to the Race Types and their bonuses:
Elf:
Upon human exploration of the outer galaxy, a planet was found with an elven civilization. it was later found that this is where all the elves went after their exodus off Middle Earth, as told in the Lord of the Rings.
(prefixes for the class name on the templates:
Elven
Rivendell
Lorien

eg. Lorien Heavy Fighter
please put these prefixes on your ship design.
you can make your own up, but make it obvious)

+5 energy regen

Man:
us. end of story.
(prefixes:
Human
Gondorian
Rohan)

+ 1 inventory space (this is the X'd off space on the templates. if you are human, just erase the X and use it)

Dwarf:
below the Earth's crust, we know very little. After technological advances, we delved deeper in, only to discover a dwarven culture thriving.
(prefixes:
Dwarven
Iron Hill)

+10 armor

Orc
I can't think of a bogus explanation why they are around.. they just are
(prefixes:
Orc
Uruk
Goblin)

+10 attack
-10 health

Hobbit
yeah, some how, we found these guys in a whole in the ground, too. but it wasn't a dry, bare sandy hole...
(prefix:
Hobbit
Shire
Brandybuck
Took)

+15 health


Items:

Plasma Cannon
- 30 attack
- 1 inv space

Istari Bolter
- 40 attack
- 2 inv spaces

Lancer
- 20 attack
- 2 inv spaces
- ignores shields

Graviton cannon
- 30 attack
- 2 inv spaces
- ignores armor

Missile
- 50 attack
- 1 inv space
- one time use
- may own up to 3

Torpedo
- 100 attack
- 2 inv space
- one time use
- may own up to 2

Kingsfoil Nanobots
- gives back 50 hull points
- 1 inv space
- one time use
- may own up to 4

Shield Capacitors
- +5 energy regen
- 1 inv space
- passive use
- may own up to 3

Mithril Armor
- +10 amor
- 1 inv space
- passive use
- may own up to 5


so, guys, draw your own items and stuff, form your teams. it is harder to kill someone in this game, so you'll need to strategize with your team to make a kill, especially when it comes to a frigate. the teams will have to be atleast around equal in number, so we might have to switch things around. also, consider your build, if you want to be an attack vessel, a defender, a healer, etc. I will try to keep the hull ammounts on the first post of the battle topic, but you know how that goes. record your own stuff. and no cheating. also, no editting your posts when someone posted after you.


dang, I wrote a book...

I'm not posting my design yet, cuz I want to see teams form a little more, atleast, so I can create a design good for the team.

so who wants to form a team and who wants to make their own?

alright, cool. once a day should cut it.


oh, and I made a couple changes:

- Orcs have -10 health. I fealt that a +10 attack is a little too much of an advantage
- there is a Hobbit race now (+15 health)

Just one question... How many people can be on a team? Ok another one... lol, do all the team members have to be the same race? One more, lol... (I keep coming up with them) can you use the Kingsfoil Nanobots, and Shield Capacitors on another ship, or can they ONLY be used on your own ship?

Ok that was the last one, lol... other then that, LOVE the idea! I plan on entering, I am going to talk DR into it too! lol.

um... we'll say max team size is 5, but what's more important is that there are equal teams.
and no, they can be multi-racial. I was about to do that at first, but once I put race bonuses in, it was no longer that much of a good idea.
so, we can form teams now and design ships later or the other way around.
I'll start a team once a couple more people sign on.

kingsfoil can be used on another ship. shield capacitor is for your use only. armor is like that too. passive items are only for your ship.

oh, one last change to the game. sry, this should be the last one.
I'm bringing down the energy regen of the frigate to +5, cuz it can double turn(using two members) and a +10 will be way to high.

last one(smilie competition) didn't go over a week.
but the defenses are higher, so that could add too length, and and there is team play, which can both lengthn or shorten the time depending on play.

in short, I don't know. from 1-2 weeks, i guess. depends on how people build their guys.


oh, and one more thing about the game.
there are two ways to win the game....
Last Team Standing, and Kill Count.
last team around wins in one area,
team with highest kills wins in another area.
so also, put your team's kill count on your posts., that is, if we have more than 2 teams

i'll join in for this...although i can't draw a ship, but i'm fairly good at strategy games. is there any difference in the offensive power of the ships, and does ammo run out, or take x amount of posts to recharge, or is it just continual.

no, not for the classes. there is no ammo for the other weapons, every post you can fire one, once. the only thing you can run out of is the nanobots,missles and torps.

hey, btw.. if you don't wanna draw up a ship, would you be up manning a frigate with me?
if you do, what do you think of an Orc Frigate, 3 shield capacitors, 5 mithril armors, istari bolter, and.. we have 2 more spaces. if your in, you choose... I suggest kingsfoil nanos.

Dang, not well drawn but:

GREENWRAITH:

HULL: 90
SHEILDS: 100
SHEILD REGEN: +5

WEAPONS:

(in order of appearence)
Istari Bolter: 50 damage (Cause im an Orc)
Lancer: 30 damage, ignores sheilds
Gravition Cannon: 40 damange, sheilds only
Kingsfoil nanobot: 50 hull +
Kingsfoil Nanobot: 50 hull +

Description: THe GreenWraith is purely devastaing in dogfights, with the ability simply melt away sheilds and armor with its specalized and damage-increased weapons of destruction. However, this is very weak against frigates, having no missiles or torpedoes to use, but it has unlimited ammo.

Two groups of kingsfoil nanobots reside within the ship to repair the ship when damaged.

The Greenwraith will PWN all... haha.

Arkenstone
Team: None (yet!)
Shields: 100
Hull: 125
Armor: 10

Items:
Lancer (20 Damage/Ignore Shields)
(2) Kingsfoil Nanobots
(3) Shield Capacitors

The Arkenstone is named after the jewel in The Hobbit which the dwarves are looking for. It is mostly a defensive ship, regenerating 20 Shield Points per turn and receiving 10% reduced hull damage, thanks to the Dwarven Armor Bonus. Although Dwarves normally keep to themselves, this ship is looking for a team.

yeah, probably will start 17th.

and oh, look, being human, you an use all of your spots. you can erase the premade X. so you have 2 extra spaces.
and also, the torpedos take 2 spots, not one, along with the lancer. so.. your over one spot. all you need to do is stretch each torpedo over both squares, and same with the lancer. will have to erase something, tho.
comprende? no comprende?

Hey, ArchAngel... one quick question, see DR cannot get on the computer on Sundays so could we do one of two things to keep it fair, lol...

A) Could I be allowed to double post on sundays, because she can't?
or
B) Could we all have a non-aggression day on Sunday?

lol, you don't have to do either, obviously, it was just a question

G4C, i don't think I'm gonna put any non-agression day or double posting for sunday. you can still post even though DR doesn't, you just have to wait for someone else. it's a slight disadvantage, but not by much.

oh, and so you guys know, you can singly man a frigate, but it will still count as two people on your team, and you cannot double post. so it's an disadvantage to do that then have 2 in one, but it's doable.


so, right now, team status is:

Elaenos:
ArchAngel
BennytheBear
Gamer4Christ
DedicatedRider

other:
CheeseStorm

Okay, here's my frigate. Kiwee, are you drawing one? If you'd like to either join my frigate, or if you make a better one than me, I'd happily be your copilot.

Presenting, the O.C.C. Elbereth, a rebel orc frigate.

The O.C.C. Elbereth was originally an elvish frigate (hence the design and name), but it was captured by the skillful Mi-Tuck, an orc captain of legendary strategic prowess. He retrofitted the elven craft with the best of orcish manufacture, and piloted it for a number of years successfully under the command of the O.C.C. Eventually fed up and frustrated with his race's unreasonable warlikeness, Captain Mi-Tuck and his crew deserted the orc ranks in a quest to fight for more honorable causes.

Base class: Orc Frigate
Hull: 190
Shield: 150
Regen: 20/turn (base of 5 + 3 shield capacitors)
Armor: 50% (5 mithryl armor plates)
Weaponry: Lancer (30 damage, ignores shields)
Extras: Two cases of Nanobots

figured that being alive means you can kill longer.
that and everybody seems to have a lancer. shields are becoming less of a defense.

luke, did you update your pic? because it still shows you using only 6 slots, and the torps and lancer only using 1.
and your regen should be 5, cuz your human.

You know it is not that hard, lol. All you have to do is come up with a hull design and lay it out in the border color, then select one color to use for the main color and color it all that color. Then you take the burn and dodge tools to add shading, and the space effects of flying, then you take the blur tool to smooth all the lines, even the outer ones. Then you take other colors and apply them on top, personally on another layer so you do not mess it up, and then blur them to make them match the ship... then you just save... and your done, lol.

But thanks for all of the compliments.

Well, in thinking about all of the different ships, I'm not sure why anyone would want to have something other than a frigate. I mean, it doesn't have any disadvantages, and it's only got advantages. You get way more space, way more health, and way more shields. In other games, normally the frigates are given a disadvantage by being slower.

If we wanted to even stuff out a bit, perhaps we could give ships a "evasiveness" factor, that would count a lot like armor (reduce the effectiveness of attacks), and therefore give the lighter fighters an advantage? So a light fighter would have 50% evasiveness (takes half-damage on account of being fast and hard-to-hit), and heavy fighters have a 30% evasiveness, and frigates have a 0% evasiveness.

I dunno' -- just a thought. Either that, or limit each team to only having one frigate, because there's no logical reason why anyone would want to use a fighter with the way the rules are set up now... unless I'm missing some advantage they have?

I like that idea:
Light Fighter: Half damage done by any weapon
Heavy Fighter: full damage done by any weapon
Frigate: Twice damage done by any weapon plus if hit by gravitron will forfeit 1 attack action.

*CPUFreak91 starts his elvish Tux powered engine and starts a test run....
*CPUFreak91 is content with a fighter. Frigates are for wimps :P

well, the only problem w/ frigates I can think of is if your co-pilot dies, vacations, gets really sick, or forgets your ship might go for several days just taking up damage while you rant, scream, and rave at your team mates lack of promptness

lol... I hate these ideas... Man, if the Frigate is so good, why are there people who don't have them? No reason to penalize the people who were intelligent enough to get one, because some people chose not to. If you want to complain about the frigate's strength, then get one, lol. =P

Even so, if we all had frigates, then the ppl with crews would have an advantage. I think all the fighters should unite against the frigates and then fight amonsgt themselves after the frigates are gone.

Or. We could fight against greater odds! I vote for the latter and even if I loose, I had fun! This is supposed to be fun people!

lol, well... personally I think that the frigates with two crew members are at more of a disadvantage, because otherwise if both were in individual crafts they both could have their own... but if they both used one then they can double post with the same ship, not that big a deal. I do think that the frigates that only have one pilot should have some negative affect, I mean being realistic... Maybe one less inventory space, less shield, less Hull... or whatever... but they also cannot double post so... I don't know. I think that they should be left alone.

there are two disadvantages to frigate, and it all rests on the fact there are 2 pilots. the fire is concentrated on one ship, instead of having to be split up among two. the only way to counter this is that they post right after eachother, which is really hard to coordinate.
in addition, they take the spot of two people on a team. you win or lose the game in a team. sure,you have an uber tough ship, but it's one in place of two.

but yeah, the frigates are tougher than I'd like (and when I decided I should have decreased the number of inv slots, it was too late). perhaps I rushed the design a little much. but they are available to everyone, so it's hardly an advantage to one side. and think about it, a frigate would generally be tougher than smaller ships.

but all in all, the people who post the most have the real advantage. they do the most damage, and they get the most shield regen.


but, in order to reduce the power of the frigate (sry guys)
both pilots of a frigate cannot both fire at a single target, one after another, until that target has posted.
this will give a bigger advantage to the smaller ships. but still, the frigates hold alot of power. they are now more defensive which leaves the smaller ships to be more offensive. enjoy.

oh, and to clarity one thing:
you cannot post twice until a person of the opposite team posts. basically, you and a teammate cannot keep attacking left and right by just riding off eachother's posts. an entire team can post at once, but will have to wait till another team posts atleast once to resume their attacks.
you still also can't attack the same person twice unless they post.

I'm thinking this is a good way for people to get interestd in a game idea. like for a game I'm planning on making, I make a forum version, and see who'd be interested in helping.
might wanna make this into a game. might wanna get a Paladin Chronicles one (spritual warfare allegory Fantasy RPG)... *raises eyebrow*

but come on, you know you wanna pilot of dwarven frigate...

i like 4 vs. 4 vs. 4 , it will make the game more interesting. about the smaller ships not being that good, how about giving them an "evade" option, that way they can choose to dodge a shot, and the frigates just have to take it.

I think an 'evade' option would be good for the smaller faster ships, but with limited uses, like maybe three... I mean the frigate is not given that many advantages, it is ONE ship taken by TWO people... if the two people had two ships they would have more shield, and more hull, and more space... but because they are getting more in ONE ship together then they would be by themselves, I think that is a huge penalty. I mean If DR and and I were to get two heavy fighters we would have, combined, 14 inventory spaces, 250 hull, and 200 shield, and 10 regen without bonuses. But with us both in one ship we have 12 spaces, 200 hull, and 150 shield, with 5 energy regen without bonuses. So yeah, I think the smaller ships should be given a LIMITED evade option, maybe five for the smallest, and 3 for the heavy fighter, but anymore then that would give them a HUGE unfair advantage, no?

As far as the teams split up... I think having three teams could cause massive chaos, while two teams would at least insure that there is no worry of being double-TEAMed, lol, literally, lol. So, you know... whatever the call I am still in this, so whatever. And I am still fighting under Commodore ElRohir. =D I cannot wait for this war to start!

I would mind if you weren't on my team! But I see you like the kill sheild and kill hull weapons. Smart choice!

We need a name. RM!!!!!!!!!!! Help! How about RCK Fighters?
Aww. Rats. My engine stalled. No wonder! The GIMP guidance system noticed a Tux feather fuel leak.

I've been thinking and I really like the evade option. 1 for the non frigates and only a 1 time use.

yeah, I was considering the speed option, but scrapped it because of the forum medium. that's why your not seeing any light fighters. perhaps I could have had speed act like the armor, and have armor just being minused off the attack, instead of percentage.
see.. that's why you do projects as a team. more creativity...

anyhow, I'll put you down as IAS. but, you know you wanna just be the InterRacial Squandron, aka IRS.

so, anybody else for 6v6 or 4v4v4? I personally favor 6v6 cuz it's cleaner and more direct. better to strategize with.

somebody could write a small "evade" randomizing program or applet.

You supply the ship's "evade" rating, and see what chance it has of dodging. This is how the forumn game slowly evolves into a standalone app.

Sure, anybody could do that. But anybody who wants to win at forum game so much they cheat should probably be allowed to win anyway. For our safety.

Honestly though. Cheating at a something like this is lame. We can have only one person with the app, so if you choose to evade, u have to wait until the (Game master?) gives you the results of that evade attempt, before you can continue attacking. so its a trade-off, you see?

yeah, things get complicating and then I'll just scrap the forum idea and move right to a game. which I kinda want to do with this. to make an open ended, 2D starship game. with either this layout, or a different one I've been working on.

and yeah, I've definetly thought of the idea of a game master, but that was for a mission based game(for the Paladin Chronicle game). where you create your guy, much like a standard RPG game, then you send a couple of them in a topic, as a party, and duke it with premade baddies that the GM controls. then there will also be a baddie topic where people can make enemies, using a standard rpg point system also. but that's further on, if I will do it.

Alright then, you can be commodore. You don't have to obey the commodore, but if you value your ship, you might.

@ArchAngel, well next project, I would love to help, so if you want it, just PM me

your definitely on my list. lol.
we'll have to do a joint Soterion Studios/ArcAngel production.

oh, and CPU, your health should be 125. armor does not give hull, it takes off a percentage of an attack


and I have decided... haha. 6v6.

so there are 2 openings on each team now.
Han for one, and Cheesestorm and Luke on the other.

if you guys want, we could do Frigate vs fighters if Han will join us. I'll try to beg Lava or someone else to help man his frigate.

I think I might switch back to a heavy fighter, I dunno'. I've been debating over this for a while. I just have a hard time giving up my 5 plates of mithyrl. That -50% to attack is *really* nice.

well, if you do, we'll really need to find another person.

basically, what kind of fight do you wanna play, offensive or defensive? 2 fighters are more offensive than a frigate, but can be picked off easier.

Armor is passive, and reduces attacks by its amount. So 2 pieces of Mithryl offer 20% defense, which means that an attack of 20 (such as from a lancer) will only do 16 damage.

ummmm.... how does the shield regeneration work? also, does the armor only lessen the damage of shots to the hull, or also to the shield? logically it should have no effect on shield shots because it's contained inside the shield, but this is a game so i'm asking. btw arch, i did want to go with the lancer because it ignores shields, but with our gun knocking 50 of every hit we don't need it . plus when we're sitting there with no shields and getting hit those nanobots will come in handy.

yeah, armor does not help shields.
and you gain your sheild regen everytime you post. so if you have 15 shield regen, you get 15 shield points every time you post. so being an active member allows for a better defense, and not just becoming a more flashy target.

also, another reason why I didn't get the lancer, is because G4C and DR have Lancers and Grav cannons, so they specialize, while we do brute damamge.
but, if you do really want the lancer, I can change it. after all, this is our frigate.

oh, i didn't pay attention to what they had, we need to stick with the nanobots definaately. they're more offensive and we're more defensive so it should balance our team out.

Yeah I'll join the Freelancers too. Dwarves have no time for silly elf-magic and whatnot.

Hehe there should be a Scavenger ship that steals Mithril from enemies and then sticks it to allied ships. ^_^ Or a Medic ship that recharges shields and repairs armor. It'd have a big inventory but no weapons or something. Ah another time.

The next battle topic should have like 8 character classes or something. Warriors and rangers and clerics and NINJAS, stuff like that.

To build off your speed/evasion idea without relying on random output generators, maybe faster characters cannot carry heavy weapons, but can have two actions per turn. For example, an assassin with a dagger in each hand could choose to dodge & strike, or strike twice and take a hit. There would have to be one post between each dodge, to prevent fast fighters from dodging every turn.

Ooh and the rangers would be best with bows, and shoot like three arrows per turn or something, I'm getting carried away. This is turning into a table-top board game.

yeah, I can see these forum games getting more and more complex. then, once we kill it, like people killed the Adventure Game genre, we'll wish back for the days of the Smiley Championship...
but till then, it sounds really fun.
and who can resist a Ninja? or... Ninja Wizards.


man... I see a paper'n'pencil RPG forming here...


hmmm.. I wonder if we can pull of Redemption here...

alright, so team 3 is the Freelancers. Han, Cheese and Luke forms their numbers. I'll allow someone to join there team anytime during the battle, if and only if they be Han's copilot. only fair, imo.


so... the war starts at midnight PST.

Oops meant to mention Frigates in there. They recharge shields only right?

Ninja Wizards O_o
Wouldn't that break the universe or something?
Kind of like a black hole of awesomeness.

You're right about things getting too complicated. Kind of like each new version of Windows adding a bunch of junk instead of fixing problems. I guess the main problem would be unbalanced characters. Sooner or later we'd all figure out "hey, this is the toughest character setup", ending up with 75% Armor Ninja Wizards or some damn thing.

Perhaps a rock-paper-scissors setup would fix that? Arrows would barely touch an armored warrior, but cut right through spellcasters wearing light armor, like a cloak. I guess the question is, if spells ignore armor, how would they be countered? Maybe warriors would have such a poor understanding of the arcane that they'd take extra damage, but other characters wouldn't be hurt too badly. Warrior > Archer > Spellcaster > Warrior.

Then there could be heavy/light versions of each class, like Knights and Ninjas for the Warrior class, dunno what a 'heavy' spellcaster would be. Maybe they would choose between offensive skills and defensive skills, like Smite or Heal or Holy Armor... it'd like double your armor for a few turns or something. Hehehe.

We're at this point already, pretty much, with Lancers putting shield-abusers at risk, but not doing much damage against armor (like an arrow). That's the sign of a good strategy game. Without balance, it's just a mad rush for the best gear...

Hmm it's 1:15 AM here... should we start?

yeah, I like wear your getting at. the rock paper scissors aproach is pretty solid. definetly gaining my interest.
hmm... maybe a super-intensive, multithread one could be done. one char dev thread, complete with history of your char, personality, what not, for the full RP experience. and other threads which is worlds your character can go to, governed by a Game Master, the person who created their world. who creates situations and combat scenarios.
the "monsters" could be either made by the people who developed the game or anybody, in a possible "monster dev" thread, with set amounts of Gold and Experience given when killed. and with this, you can bump your stats and buy new equipment(which again could be designed in another thread).

wow... that might be the step to kill it too. haha. I could, persay, host it in my own forum (which is down temporarily, but can be up at a moments notice). since it might be a little distracting here. iono... if anybody is interested. it will have to be a team dev project.
haha, the forum RP game could be CCN's claim to fame. lol.
Kiwee will be immortalized.

but now, the tast at hand.


frigates can transfer their shields to a teammate, and everyone can use their nanobots on a teammate.


and about ninja wizards, I got it off a animated GIF comic about LOTR. it was on someone's sig, and I was trying to find a link to it. pretty funny.
so I uploaded it for all to bask in wonder.

In case you didn't notice from the battle forum, I made a new ship image (all of the equipment is the same).

All of the rendering was done in Gimp using layers and heavy use of the "Filters->Map->Map To Object" function.

The old one (which was made almost entirely in MS Paint) can still be found here:

Thanks -- I hope it's okay I changed it. I didn't change any of the equipment or their positions, just their visuals.

I was feeling a little embarassed with my such hastily-drawn ship, and plus I was bored whilst waiting for people to post yesterday, so that's when I made it.

When I made my original one, I was thinking of this ship from the comic Miracle of Science.

My second rendered ship was done in the spirit of the original Escape Velocity, a great old game for the Mac.

Wow. That was such a good round, I'm still going over it in my head.

So it looks like the fight is going to be a fairly evenly-matched battle between the remainder of the IAS and the remainder of the Freelancers. If either of you guys get hit by a lancer, you're toast, so the real battle looks like it's down to the IAS (with the Gondorian Rose being the stronger) and the Freelancers (with the Arkenstone being the stronger). Crazy stuff -- I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

G'night all, I'm off!

Any opinions on Star Wars or medieval settings for the next one? I'd rather do something more original than Star Wars, but then again, it is hard to complain about lightsabres.

If we go with Star Wars, we'll probably need an uber-tough bounty hunter character class to have any hope of killing Jedi or Sith (otherwise everybody will just throw on a cloak and grab a lightsabre that does 1454523423 damage per turn).

The 3-team system WAS pretty harsh. The only way to have no ganging-up (intentional or accidental) between 3 active teams is for us to attack the team that's not attacking us... and that makes no sense. We Freelancers should've voted for 6v6, but the prospect of being the heroic underdogs was too great... not to mention that we weren't really underdogs anyway.

Having everything as two definite teams might be kind of boring too. Let's say you start a bounty hunter and don't want to write anything in stone since it's your first day, keep your options open. Then after you level up a bunch, the good/bad teams will say "hey, we could use your talents" and hire you.

Which leads me to another thing, this inventory system works pretty well, but maybe we could work a money thing into it. For example, you start with some basic gear and $1000. You kill some AI monsters, up to $2000. Cheapy noob gear gets old, so you go back to the Preliminary Topic and splurge on better armor or whatever. You would only be able to do this while not duelling anyone... otherwise your level 3 opponent would take a timeout, return the next day as a level-one-million Sith Lord who kills you just by imagining it.

Oh yeah, dunno if this would backfire, but maybe each big team could have a different thread (locked somehow?) so that you can't see what your enemies are carrying until you duel them.

Hehe I love ranting about this stuff. I always start simple games that become never-ending projects doomed for deletion. Anyway, I'm still voting for medieval setup, but Jedi/Sith are pretty much the same as Samurai/Ninjas anyway. If the ninjas were evil that is.

I'd prefer to save the inventory for the uber forum game that's in dream stage. so far, there are 3 ppl in the dev team for team. will be hosted on my forum, where I'll give a section for it. multi worlds, arenas, etc. pm if you want in on the dev team.
I'd be pushing for a fantasy/mythological approach for that one.
it's all under discussion.

yeah, lava said he was making the next one, so we should ask him about it. I

Man, that all sounds so uber complicated. I barely had time for this past fight (I'm glad it moved so quickly and I got out in 2 days).

I liked the simple style of this and the smiley competition -- if it gets *too* much more complicated, I don't think I'll participate just out of lack of time.
