Re: Grassroots Tournament 2011 (OOC & Sign-ups)

I'd be glad to work things out and modify the fight's rules so that a proper final match is fought. Just let me know what you and Klikxx decide on.

Re: Grassroots Tournament 2011 (OOC & Sign-ups)

Rilla, would you like for me to fight you the rest of the round's duration? Or would you rather me get last year's champion to fight you as Sirius Leonine as a showmatch? I would hate for this tournament to end with no final round.

Re: Grassroots 2012 Artwork Request

The landscapes that I make are aerial perceptive. Here's an example. http://th00.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2011/285/2/e/kingdom_of_riv__nar_by_obsidianentity-d4cnd9n.jpg So if something like that is what would work that's fine. If not, I can do other things. This type of perspective would be suitab...

Re: Grassroots 2012 Artwork Request

Question: If I take the time to work on some stuff for this (because I can make logos, aerial landscape maps, and banners), will I be able to promote my youtube channel if my pieces are chosen? Just curious. My channel is about a lot of things and I'm currently working on an idea of creating some t...

Re: Happy Halloween!

The only suggestion I have for improving this theme is to make the thread title text a slightly darker color, since the brightness of this theme tends to hurt my eyes. Other than that, it's very well done, and I thank you for taking the time to develop and create the festive atmosphere on this site....

Re: Grassroots Tournament 2011 (OOC & Sign-ups)

Ok ok I have the judgement Tiko wins, being ahead in damage, IC ability, tactics (barely), and writing. Script will fight in the 3rd place match, and Tiko will fight against Klikxx in the finals. Both matches are at whichever location the contestants agree upon. The stage description must be written...

Re: GR2011 - Lobby (IC)

(OOC: Terrible purple post time. dwi.) A thin ray of light pierces the dead bramble, reaching down into the water below. Subtle ripples begin a slow, aqueous pulsation; within the Great Swamp's murky depths, particles assimilate; gravitating, congregating. Twigs perk. Branches lift their somber, lo...

Re: Text Combat. Tricks and How To Beat Them.

I think you actually fail to grasp the true meaning of this thread, TwilightShade. Yes, it deals exclusively with the best ways to handle certain aspects of fighting. Yes, it has people talking strategy with one another. The true purpose of this thread, I doubt, is to do either of those things excl...

Re: Text Combat. Tricks and How To Beat Them.

This entire thread fails to deal with one subtle but critical detail of text combat: the staggering variety of chracters one has to deal with. Text combat is not a game of rock-paper-scissors. It is not a game of "character x counters character y, therefore I win", except in uncommon circu...

Re: Grassroots Tournament 2011 (OOC & Sign-ups)

There is already an established and well defined rubric in use for judged fights. It is somewhere in the first 10 pages of the thread; next year, it will be included in the OP. There was also more in consideration than the amount of damage taken. In fact, several of the fights had next to no damage ...

Re: Wanting To Pass Some Time

Eerie. Silent. Empty. Such thoughts echoed within Magnus Kome's mind, timed to each forward pace. For him, this location was undiscovered, but his previous journeys encompassed enough places of this type that noisy footsteps felt out of place. Normally, an incredible energy filled the streets, grant...

Just a notice: I am currently archiving all of the fights for both 2010 and 2011 on my computer. They will also be backed up onto my external hard drive.

This year's tournament isn't quite over yet, but I do have a request I'd like to ask of those reading this post, as well as a small list of changes already planned for next year's tournament. One of the changes I have planned is to increase the visual and creative appeal of the tournament. What this...

Yeah you can kinda fudge your way out of the situation, Tiko, as long as you weren't interacting with characters that have acknowledged the power outage. Honestly, it's going to be a matter of me writing "backup generators, engineers/maintainence deployed" in some semi-creative form. It'll...
