A Tournament of Sorts

A new thread, for a new RPG. This RPG has a little different flavor though. Participants will be controlling a team of warriors that are taking part in a tournament.

I haven't composed the tournament rules 100%, but I think there will be teams of 2-4 members (depending upon how much or little the poster wants to become involved in the story) and the members will use only weapons and martial arts styles. NO MAGIC!

There has got to be at least 4 people involved in this thing to get it off the ground, but more like 8 is preferable. Characters and the storyline can be developed in and out fo the ring, this isn't going to just be a hack and slash story. I

'll post the exact tournament rules if I get enough interest in this project. Thanks for taking a look.

Team Light

Member 1: Matt is a well-rounded fighter with skill in grappling, boxing, karate, and other martial arts. He uses no weaponry. His main ability is in his ability to take hits. He is one tough motha. Matt always does what is right, but he is definately a no-nonsense type of guy.

Member 2: Eldaire is what most would imagine as a medival knight. Though he does not wear a suit of armor, he does carry a broad-sword and a shield. Also in his inventory is a bow and arrow set, but he rarely uses them. Not the fastest guy around, but his arsenal of weaponry and great strength make him a tough foe. Eldaire is the essence of pure hearted. He has an intricate honor code and is obsessed with doing the right thing.

Member 3: Amarth is more like a samurai. He uses a long katana and is unsurpassed in the department of speed. He is a dark mysterious person with little regard for the feelings of his opponent. Though he usually winds up on the side of good, it seems that his alliance with the forces of light are shakey at best.

Member 4: Heero is a calm fluid fighter. He is a monk and uses a bo as a weapon. He practices the sei chi style. This warrior doesn't seem to talk much, but in the fighting rink he lets his fists speak for him. (He speaks softly, but he carries a biiiiig stick! )

Team Awesome

no i'm just kidding

Team Lahrien

Ass-kicker #1: Lila
Short, freckled redhead. Rocks out with some martial arts skills (I guess like karate. yep, karate.) She's quick due to her size, good-natured, somewhat naive and klutzy.

Ass-kicker #2: Ageha
Very tall, extremely long legs (think those things on that planet that make the clones in star wars.) Piercing black eyes and long silver hair. This chick's a ninja-ette (cool mouth-covering cloth thing included.) Awesome kicking abilities plus some sweet skills with the nunchaku, shuriken, and a sweet-ass ninja sword.

Ass-kicker #3: Nienna
Elf. Long brown hair, brown eyes, flawless form (more like Arwen than Galadriel). Ridiculously skilled with a bow. Very serious, eloquent, awesome.

Ass-kicker Numero Cuatro: Serendice
3 words: Really. Big. Sword.

Jokester 2: Prankster
Babe (as in female) of the group. Carrys Yo-Yo's, marbles, and other types of gags. All are weapons. Likes to torment her opponet.

Jokester 3 & 4: Comedy and Tragedy

Team Enishi

Member one, Tarrae - Age 21, Bit of a medival fighter. Wears a full suit of armor and carries a large Zweihander (large two handed sword). Because he is wearing armor and carrying such a massive sword he makes every one of his strikes accurate and powerful. A focused swing can cut through several trees.

Member 2, Jeriyu - Age 20, The complete anti-verse of Tarrae, he is quick, nimble, wears no armor, and two daggers for weapons. Instead of killing an opponent with one shot he opts to roll and jump around an opponent making little cuts with his daggers. But the pain from these cuts is no less painfull and the pain adds up until his opponent bleeds to death or just collapses.

Since this team is only of two members both of them are twice as well trained and twice as deadly.

Background : They we're best friends since thier childhood, they would always spar with eachother. Always gaining more power and strength. They know eachothers styles perfectly and can almost predict their partners next move. They can fight in unison, playing off of eachothers, making them deadly alone but much more so together.

Uhm hmm...With 5 teams it could have an interesting kick off because one team would get a Buy...Hmm...I'd hold out for 6 just to simplify things. Or you can have an NPC team that is just kinda there. OR several so that things could get really interesting.

Claudia - don't let her porcelain doll-like petite exterior fool you. this girl's the biggest time bitch. and why not? trapped in a child's body for 3 centuries can do that to a person. very alert vampire senses, fights like a cat. think teeth, claws, incredibly speed and agility.

Annika - tall, chic. black hair. form-fitting clothes. the epitome of grace and beauty. deep emerald green eyes. and an extremely long fencing sword.

Freya - extremely pretty redheaded girl. she'll sit down, cross her legs...give em a glimpse of the alabaster white thigh...garter belts strapped on each one...holding two razor sharp throwing daggers.

DaraXdeath - this girl's almost as tough as the music she listens to. prefers to fight with her hands, you know...karate-type jujutsu stuff...but if need be she'll get out her switchblade. bitches get stabbed.

Team Ohtar

Member 1:

Name- Amras
Sex- Male
Age- 20
Height- 5'8
Hair Color- Light Brown w/ dirty blonde tips- shaggy and unkept
Eye Color- Silverish grey
Weapon- a two-handed Chinese gim (Tai-chi sword)
Fighting style- great defense and parrying skills. not the fastest, but his attacks are fierce and extremely powerful. motions are graceful and precise. Good in armed and unarmed combat. Prefers melee to ranged fighting.

Member 2:

Name- Aranel
Sex: Female
Age- 21
Height- 5'5
Hair Color- Dark brown- almost black, kept long out of ring- in braids while fighting.
Eye Color- a deep blue
Weapon- kunai (small scyther) and chain with metal dart fixed to other end (think Sango's brother's weapon from Inuyasha)
Fighting Style: Fluid motions, very graceful. Attacks are quick and timed perfectly. Attacks from the outside with long chain, but not afraid of hand to hand combat. Uses opponents own energy and motion against them (think Spike from Cowboy Beebop).

Member 3:

Name: Elrohir
Sex: Male
Age: 20
Height: 5'11
Hair color: blonde that is unkept and spiky (think Vash but shorter)
Eye Color: Vivid red with flecks of yellow.
Weapons: Poison barbs, shirukens, stars (anthing that can be thrown), and a 4-5 foot staff.
Fighting Style: OFFENSE, OFFENSE, OFFENSE! Attacks are relentless and aggressive, but at the same time precise. Fighter never works himself into a rage, but never stops attacking. Distracts opponents with ranged attacks then moves siftly in for close combat.


Background Info: All members are best friends since they all started training at a Tibetan monastery. They are half-elves but have embraced the discipline of Hsing-I. Hsing-I is an internal art of kung-fu that emphasizes ying and yang, both hard and soft. The I in Hsing-I means 'mind' or 'will', and attacks are belived to be projections of minds focus, though damage is caused by vertical attacks. All movements are graceful and controlled. Techinques are based off of five Chinese elements: fire, water, earth, wood, and metal. Three fighters' eyes reflect the element they represent: Aranel- water, Elrohir- fire, and Amras- metal. The team is very unified and gel as one unit, they are always there for one another, and their feelings could even be desrcibed as love for one another. Their skills are extenseive in both armed and unarmed combat, and they use each together with weapon and physical attacks. While they are not invincible, they are certainly great advesaries for all.

OK guys, I'm going to put this to a vote. Right now, we have 6 teams ready to roll., with one that may join in later. We can either move ahead with six members or wait for Gakface. Your call guys. I need some responses though.

The other thing is whether we want the tournament to start out as a 16- team tournament with 9-10 filler teams, or an 8 team tournament with 1-2 filler teams. In the 16 team tourney we could get some practice beofre fighting one another, but it would be longer. So the 8 team tourney would pit us against each other int he first rounf, which is inevitable in the long run, but hey. So let me know your thoughts. And post or PM me if you have questions about the rules.

You don't really state a clear protocall for winning a match. Alot of people are stubborn and if you say you stabbed them in the neck they'll just say...dodges it. So please adjust your rules to be more clear.

Team : Verdan's Dragoons
The Dragoons, under Thomas Verdan, are a mercenary company now numbering in the hundreds. They have sent a four member team to investigate a skirmish. Thomas, restless from countless negotiations has decided to lead the team himself.

Leader: Thomas Verdan
Thomas is a tactician by nature, but since he had to fight to get what he has, he is strong, quick, and knows how to use his longsword with stunning skill. His only weakness is Katrina, his wife. He never wanted her to get into combat, but he cant control everything

Katrina Verdan
If Thomas is the master of the longsword, Katrina is a goddess with the daggers. With no less then ten on her at any time, she is always prepared. Her speed is legendary, and training with several adept schools has taught her that she can bring down most opponents with a single strike, if placed well.

Ulgar Tresk
One of the members of the team not from the Verdan family, Ulgar is faced with the reality he will never be in command. This doesnt bother him as he has served Thomas for years and shows more loyalty then people would think. He is big, or huge, depending on whether he has knocked you down yet or not. Armed with a two handed battle-axe, he may not be quick, but more people then Ulgar can count have been bested by a well aimed blow.

Simon Verdan
Somewhat the black sheep of the family, Simon (son of Thomas and Katrina) trained not under weapons masters, but under an order of monks who saw weapons as a flaw. Simon is a martial arts master, and has honed his body and mind to knife edge accuracy and lethalness

I understand that this is going to be diceless, who is going to govern who hits or not? To name a simple example, "Guns & Robbers"... no one really one except for the guy who got bored last (as the other guy would finally just say "Fine I'm hit, no, I'm dead!") Some people are honest and will take hits, but alas we won't always take the hit the opponent wants, which won't help things. Beyond that, how do we knock them out of the ring?

Basically are you going to GM each round to say what happens?

Just start without me... I won't be able to post anything until Tuesday Night at best. All my ideas are in the car, and the car is at the other side of town (I'm at my uncle's, car is at my grandma's).. Busy all tomarrow, and driving home Tuesday.... Aside from that I'd really prefer to see a match. Heck you could even have you and another stage a match... Either way I really want to see how it works so I can Role Play this to maximum efficiency.

Oooh! I forgot a question, very important and I may have to change character designs depending upon it. What is the fighting ground like? Well lit, flat area with no terrain? or will it be dim? maybe dark? what about well lit in the center, but dark and shadowy on the outskirts of the map? Will any of them be walled in? Jungle Setting? Airport Setting? I'm just curious if we'll have anything to fight around/with.

Thank,

ummm... hey guys. first off, i just wanted to say that ya'll rock, thanks for posting and showing so much interest and stuff.

i'm obviously not the moderator, so i don't have the authority to answer ya'lls questions, but i did want to let ya'll know that SSJwrestler might not be able to post for a couple of days. I might could just ask him some questions for ya'll and post his answers myself. yea, i think that would work.

so, i'm gonna go ahead and get some answers to the questions that have already been posted for ya'll and if you have anymore questions, i'd appreciate it if you just PMed them to me and i'll ask him for you.

sorry for the delay and such, we love you guys and i promise on robert e. lee's grave that this tournament will be under way shortly! thanks ya'll!

OK! Sorry for the wait. Here are some clarifications. For weapons, there are no guns or nukes or modern weaponary. Only medieval weapons. A warrior could use a series of small bombs since they existed in China at the time, but nothing thats gona make to much of a boom. The battle ground is in an arena, and the surrounding island is covered with four different terrains: forest, meadow, mountains, and a swampy dark area.

As for how matches are to be decided. As a poster you cannot control you opponents moves. Thats really the only stipulation, that and knowing when youre defeated. I don't want this to be a great area of distress, but I mean don't be so completely stubborn that you will never admit defeat. You can dodge and such. As a poster also know that you are not invincible, if you were there would be no point in fighitng.

I hope this answers questions and I apologize for taking so long. If there are anymore concerns then ask me. Although I must say I'm at my wits end right now. Terresque....this could be where I need some help if there are an more questons.

PLEASE KEEP INTEREST!!!

Questions:

-What does it matter what the ground around the arena is like if you lose when you're knicked out?

-Are we thinking DBZ World Tournament here?

Reccomendations:

-Let all of the non-competing members judge who wins a match if it carries on for too long.

-Let's get started already! We'll fill in the holes as we go along. Write up a bracket.

Okay, I'm gonna get this started. If you have any objection SSJ, feel free to change this, but you're taking too long. I'm putting in other teams for the first matches and the people who fight them can decide exactly what their fighters are like. For when two npc teams fight one another, I'll designate a winner ahead of time. Players should always beat npcs and whoevers fighting them can dictate their actions.


Team Verdan's Dragoons
vs.
Team Lancelot
---------------------------------
Team Ohtar
vs.
Team Tiger Claw
---------------------------------
Team Disgrace
vs.
Team Nutsy
---------------------------------
Team Enishi
vs.
Team Ruroni
---------------------------------
Team Jesters
vs.
Team Gigantor
---------------------------------
Team Lahrien
vs.
Team Rivendell
---------------------------------
Team Light
vs.
Team Dim
---------------------------------
Team Huffelpuff--__
vs......................> Team Gryffindor
Team Gryffindor__--


To demonstrate how the Bracket works (for those of you who aren't familiar with the process if there are any of you since I couldn't draw a good one), I will go ahead and give you what will happen next round. The Dragoons and Ohtar will advance and fight one another. Disgrace and Enishi will also advance. The Jesters and Lahrien will advance too. And Light will advance to face Gryffindor (I promise I didn't give myself and NPC on purpose, I went in reverse order. Besides, Gakface can put his team in place of Gryffindor if he sees fit and that will give us a nice even bracket.) As for my questions and comments above, the surrounding landscape is told for training purposes. It is kind of like the budokai, but more like Yu-Yu Hakasho dark tournament. We will allow non-competing members to judge who wins if the fight drags on for too long.

The arena itself was huge, at least the size of a football stadium, but with much more seating. All sorts of creatures were in the stands. Angels, Demons, Aliens, Humans, Elves, Mexicans, everything you could imagine. They were roaring in anticipation of the fight. The 16 teams stood anxiously in their designated areas around the ring. They were all preparing in their one way. Team Lancelot was reciting their vows. Team Ruroni was meditating quietly. Team Huffelpuff was cringing in fear. A strange looking creature that seemed to be half cat and half woman came in from the arena entrance. She stood in the middle of the 30yd x30yd ring in the middle and adressed the roaring crowd through her micrphone.

NOW! WELCOME EVERYONE TO A TOURNAMENT OF SORTS! REMEMBER FIGHTERS, ONE FIGHTER FROM EACH TEAM IN THE RINK AT A TIME! WINNER OF THE MAJORITY OF THE MATCHES BASED ON THE LARGEST TEAM WINS! FIGHTING RULES ARE... ANYTHING GOES! LET'S BEGIN SHALL WE?! ROUND 1! VERDAN'S DRAGOONS vs. TEAM LANCELOT! READY? FIGHT!

The cat creature walked off the middle ring and stood next to it ready to call a KO, Surrender, Ring Out, or Kill (and if she got bored a win by judges decision).

(Again SSJ, this is just cause you took so long. I didn't mean to put words in your mouth, but I think this fits what you wanted anyway, but if it doesn't feel free to tell me what to change or if you want me to get rid of this post and I'll quickedit.)

[OOC: Guess I'll start things off]

In the area cordoned off for the Dragoons, the members sit casually and talk. They keep thier weapons close by, but are generally relaxed. After speaking with several other teams the night before, Thomas breifs his members. After speaking for several minutes after the cat-woman speaks, a member walks towards the centre of the arena.

I am Ulgar Tresk! Pride of the highlands, blood of fire and arm of steel! I bear the colors of the Dragoons, may my enemies know before they meet my weapon! Now come and get me!

He then brandishes his weapon and waits...

[OOC: Alright *cracks knuckles* hopefully I dont loose against myself. I'll introduce the first fighter then the rest of the team]

As Ulgar screams out his challenge, the crowd erupts with cheers (obviously expecting a good fight). Several fighters notice groups of spectators exchanging money for betting stubs, and a giant chalk board appears with odds and winnings. After a few minutes the crowd grows silent as a man kneeling in the Lancelot cordon stands. He is dressed in ancient chain mail and garbed in a flowing white tunic emblazoned with a blood red cross. In one hand he holds a dark iron footman's mace, and a giant kite shield rests on his other arm. His features are hidden by a visored helm but long golden hair can be seen escaping beneath it. He walks calmly towards the centre of the arena and stands opposite Ulgar. He speaks softly, but due to the design of the arena, his voice carries even to the far reaches of the stands.

I am Sir. Gendan of the order of the crusaders. I meet your challenge Ulgar Tresk. May the light prevail. You may have the honor of striking first

With that the knight steps back and readies his weapon and shield. Ulgar nods and saultes the knight, then with a mighty roar he leaps forward and brings his axe down with a rush of force and ferocity that momentarily stuns the crowd.

[OOC: If thats what you really want. I believe that the teams are just filler and we are just getting the hang of controlling numerous characters. Personally, my battle is going to be rather quick so that the real tournament will start. But, I will be more thn willing to help your cause. Just describe the other teams characters, so I can see what I have to work with, and I will control them in battle. Sound good man?]

Team Lancelot

Team Lancelot, named after a legend of lost tales named Sir. Lancelot.. Are a group of Crusaders who for thier own reasons, are fighting in the tournament. It is often described that when they win the tournament, they will use the power to disband it.. Others state that they want to win to bring reknown to the group..

Sir Valadeen
- The leader, both spritually and tactically, Valadeen is an older knight who has seen many battles. His strength however has not waned at all. Armed with a giant staff ending in a wickedly heavy cross, Valadeen has a long reach, keeping even multiple opponents at bay

Lady Catherine
- The idea of a female crusader is a new one, and many of the order do not pay her the respects she deserves. Catherine is a member of a holy order of nuns devoted to defending the faith (at all costs). Like all holy orders, she will not use bladed weapons, but her ball and chain is renowend (and named the "fist of heavens")... Catherine fights in a heavy suit of brass plate carved with a relief of the great battle of Ton'Gerlor.. (though only she remembers anything about that fight)

Sir. Gendan
We have already met Sir. Gendan.. He is the youngest of the order, and the first to step in. Armed with a footman's mace and a well used kite shield, Sir. Gendan is young, brash, and cocky.. something his opponants are good to exploit..

Father Devonis
The Father, known the world over as "The sword father" is something of a mystery. He wields two swords, something that sets him apart from most every other priest (as bladed weapons are not allowed on men or women of holy orders). He is however, the master of those two blades, and often he trains other sects' warriors in thier use. Despite his bulk, Devonis moves quickly, and the swords are almost as sharp as his insults..
