Title: I may as well just shoot myself in the foot, but here goes
Post by: NecroMage on April 01, 2005, 12:53:22 PM
I don't know why.

Seriously, I don't know why.

But for

SOME
UNKNOWN
GODFORSAKEN
REASON
FROM
HELL

I still want to try and get a forum for my Battle Royale story.

Of course, I think I may be able to pull it off this time. Why, you may be asking? I'll tell you why. THIS Time I'll put in words a chimp could understand, rather than think that the people who set up forums are at a Human level of reading. All I ask for my time is a forum. THAT'S IT. I NEVER even intended for this to be a story, because if anyone had the brainpower to READ through my whole proposal last time, NOTHING IS AFFECTED ANYWAY, YOU STUPID STUPID PEOPLE WHO CAN'T READ WELL ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND SEVERAL PERFECTLY FINE REASONS FOR RESSURECTION!!! However, I'm making one last ditch effort at this, so here goes.

Far off in the ocean, a small island sits, undiscovered by the rest of the world. On this island resides a small, nearly perfect society, devoid of crime, hunger, homelessness, and greed. The people of this Island owe their Utopian existance to the Zaphiroth, a group of Mages with Magics Far more powerful than any others found in the World. They have the power to control time and space, suppress memories, even ressurect the dead.

However, the people of this kingdom still yearn for one thing- entertainment. They seek something that will excite and entertain them, they seek-- Conflict.

It was this that lead the ruler of this civilization, The great King Methodus, to gather his Zaphiroth. He told them all of his idea, and they agreed wholeheartedly. They Each then Set off to do the King's bidding.

The King's idea was to hold a Grand Tournament, a series of battles where warriors would test their strength, wits, and willpower against eachother in a series of matches. These matches would take place inside of a Massive Arena shaped by the Zaphiroth. This arena would provide the perfect battle grounds as the Zaphiroth could alter the arena's grounds to suit the needs of any type of combat they wished.

As for the warriors, They would be a hand picked selection from each of the Zaphiroth. The Zaphiroth would use their awesome magics to see into the outside world, and summon any combatant they wished to the island. Of course, the outside world would be frozen in a single moment in time, the moment that the combatants were teleported away from. The combatants would be returned to that exact moment once the tournament was done with all of their memories of the island suppressed, in order to insure that the island was never spoiled by outsiders knowing of it's existance.

The tournament will be set up as follows:

Each Round would consist of several matches.

The matches in each round will have different situations, so The fighters must also deal with the environment as well as their opponent.

The number of fighters in each match and the number of rounds and the number of matches per round will all depend on the number of people who join the story.

There may only be one character per person entering, meaning I can't enter Both NecroMage and Illix

There may only be one Fighter per character, meaning I could use Masta OR Xirix, but not both.

The basic set up of a match goes as follows:

All the fighters will enter the arena, and be informed of the conditions they will be fighting in.

They will then make preparations (i.e. decise whether or not to bring in ALL of their weapons, choose a weapon given to them under the circumstances et cetera)

They Fight

All participants must use proper combat manners, meaning no godmoding, and you have to be willing to take a hit, or even lose if the other person has you beat.

If you die, you lose the match and will be instantly teleported from the arena and revived by the Zaphiroth who summoned you.

If you surrender, your fate is in the crowd's hand. This means that, based on how well you did in previous rounds, the crowd may decide you deserve to get a second chance in the tournament and move you on. This process is basically a vote amongst the other participants in an OOC thread on whether or not they think you've done well in the tourney so far. Also, reasons must be given as to why they voted, so that means no voting you out just to kill off competition.

If you are eliminated from the tournament you should still remain in the thread, as the losers may find several opportunities to get back into the competition, in order to fill out the numbers of each round, so you should always try to learn as much about your enemies as possible.

Eventually however, the tournament will end, and we will all be returned to our time of exit with suppressed memories of the island, meaning we will bear no knowledge of that place. Unless of course, we should ever return...

Well, that was the story part. I'll do the forum and mod info and such once THIS gets the Okay. Oh, and by the way, for all you sub-primates out there, The ressurection is because They are REALLY POWERFUL. Got It? Good.

Soon my enemies will be consumed by flame...

Yes Almighty Bahran, that is a good question.

Thank you.

No, thank you.

No, I insist.

One last time: The Santharian RPG Message Board is maintained by volunteers and by someone who pays the bills in the background so that you don't have to. And the intention is to allow people to play in Santharia according to the RPG rules we've defined here on the board and according to the developed world which exists on the main site. If you want to make something completely different, NecroMage, and show no intention to accept any compromises I assume you don't make the admins nor the webmaster happy and you generate basically only problems, which might have a tiring effect to most people here, I'd say.

Title: It beats trying to reason with crazy ideas like LOGIC.
Post by: NecroMage on April 02, 2005, 03:05:22 PM
Fine. I Give up my idea, I'm sure that the fact a LOAD of people WANTED it to happen showed that they were VERY tired of me trying to get it running. They'll be very happy to work in a cramped, unworkable OOC thread, 'cause I don't want to comprimide the whole point of my idea. I'll be sure to tell everyone that my problem generating has ceased, and they just need to forget about that wonderful Idea they all said I had. Heck, if it was supported by a large number of the players but it didn't follow one or two rules, than the burocracy should win. Why should the rules be bent for something that would have no effect on anything? To PLEASE People? The very idea must SICKEN the admins and Mods, I know that I'D refuse to hear logic out if I had the power to approve something like this, that people wanted to happen.

You guys keep this up and You could all get nice government jobs, that where you get the real red tape.

Title: F**K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Post by: NecroMage on April 03, 2005, 05:45:22 PM
Okay, look. As far as I gather the only real problem Anyone had last time was that I couldn't ressurect people from the dead. As far as I see, I've ALREADY (are you following so far?) EXPLAINED (Still with me?) THAT (Everyone got it?) PART (now you understand).

Now, I don't get why what I've tried to get approved hasn't been when as far as I can tell, I already fixed things that caused problems. Here's an example. With PUPPETS!

:devilish  So, that's my idea, any problems?

:drool  Duh, yeah, you can't ressurect the dead. Only really strong Mages can do that.

:devilish  Oh, well I already said that these Mages were more powerful than normal ones

:drool  But, duh, you can only ressurect someone about two times a day.

:devilish  There's only one match a day or so, so there would only be 3 people dead, tops, to go between like thirty mages.

:drool  But, duh, you can't ressurect the dead

:devilish  ... Um, I already explained that.

:drool  You should make it near death

:devilish  But, the whole point is I could do that in a story, and I WANT to fight to the death. If I did that then there's no point.

:drool  Duh, you can't ressurect the dead.

And so now you see why I feel like a character in Dilbert being told something by the Pointy Haired Boss.

What REALLY amuses me is that people have suggested It could work if I exchange Mages for something else like Clerics or Weavers. The reasoning is clearly beyond my comprehension, since the reason I could get this approved is because they are either not even near being completed or might not even exist. THAT will sure fix these logic problems. Replace a logical solution with something totally illogical.

Actually, spelling it out like that just made it crystal clear, so here's my new idea:

An island in a sea of ice cream is actually a whale, that eats the fighters so they have to fight eachother all at once but they all use god powers and their weapons are a random peice of fruit, because Sarda the sage said that the pandas danced last tuesday, so the dead people are revived.

Yep, THAT makes MUCH more sense than logic.

Also, I'm sick off people saying about how I should be nicer to the mods and such, because I was nice for long enough and I hit this brick wall where nobody will even provide a REASON for as to why I can't get this approved other than

:drool  Duh, work in teh rules

WHAT FRIGGING RULE AM I BREAKING? TELL ME!!! And it better not be that super powerful mages can't revive dead people, because Ximixian mages can do it. I am sick of hearing that told to me over and over again, because it makes no bloody sense.

Soon my enemies will be consumed by flame...



Title: Re: I may as well just shoot myself in the foot, but here go
Post by: Atsuin on April 03, 2005, 11:48:22 PM
i think i see what the mod's dont like. if they can revive the dead, why not just go to the mainland and go round healing all the dead? also, where would this island be?

Title: This is hurting my insides.
Post by: NecroMage on April 04, 2005, 11:46:22 AM
I'd just like to say I'm sorry. I'm not really all that sorry, but I'm apoligising anyway, because I've been a jerk lately. I know you are all real people, and I may have caused some hurt feelings. I also  know that you all know I'm not sorry, so that's why I openly said that at the beginning. It's just frustrating that I've been stuck at this point for over a month and nobody is even trying to comprimise with me. I've made many comprimises to this story already, but now people are just telling me to change the whole freaking point. And I've offered my attempts at a comprimise, I've offered reasoning and perfectly acceptable explanations, but nobody is willing to give me an inch.

So, again, I'm sorry. Can someone please tell me what I need to change here instead of telling me not to insult people anymore. It's not like that has affected this story at all, since it took me a month of wasted time before I did that. It'll probably take another month before I get my answer at this rate...

Soon my enemies will be consumed by flame...



Title: Re: This is hurting my insides.
Post by: Atsuin on April 04, 2005, 01:09:22 PM
WRONG!!! shorter than a month. other than the fact of reviving teh dead, i think it's fine. mabye the warriors can fight with stuffed giraffe necks, or inflatable bananas. if not that, then don't make it a killing thing, more like maiming.

Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. They're all wrong, The Lord All Mighty will end it.



Title: Re: This is hurting my insides.
Post by: Kalína Dalá'isyrás on April 04, 2005, 02:02:22 PM
What about it is not "dueling to the death" but as soon as one is unable to continue the fight, they are considered out? That way this whole resurrecting thing can be avoided? Then you can have low level mages available to help care and cure for the wounded.



Title: Atleast I get it...
Post by: Bahran the big on April 04, 2005, 05:33:22 PM
Ok... that's the whole point people, he's not giving up the death. You all need to move on. Get a hobby. Take up fly fishing. Learn to fix toasters. Spary rubbing alcohol in your eyes. Learn ball room dancing. ANYTHING BUT POST ALTERNATIVES TO NECRO'S IDEA. He doesn't want to hear it.

Post by: Khiera Meneris on April 04, 2005, 09:54:22 PM
I was not going to post this, but considering that Necro made an apology, i'll repeat myself, as has been done before:

I echo Arti, Luca and Kalina's posts.

Also, as has been previously posted, why resurrection is not allowed:

Quote:
Regarding your first point, i believe i've made this suggestion before. Let your fighters fight to near-death (the gasping-a-last-breath type of near-death if you want). Then when someone is on the brink of death, halt the combat, and let your clerics do the healing. I (and the rest of the Admins) really do not want to set a precedence of resurrection and all that stuff, regardless of whether it's a mystical faraway island or not.


Again, why resurrection is not allowed: If allowed, it would set a precedence allowing an aspect of the world that is not yet fully developed, bringing with it tons of ambigousness about its limitations = more trouble than it is worth.

That's the final word on it.  





Title: ARGH! AGAIN WITH THE SAME BLOODY THING! ARGH!
Post by: NecroMage on April 05, 2005, 12:26:22 PM
I have a question.

How is allowing Mages more powerful than any other that will ever exist the abiltiy to ressurect people going to set a standard for ressurection?

Also, if someone can't use anything that isn't wholly developed, how can people use magic? All I read in the CDs nowadays is "well, magic isn't wholly done yet so..."

I mean, if the people who RP here want to use something that isn't completely done, shouldn't there be some way that WE the people could help create it by using it in stories? We ARE the ones who need to live with these rules, so why can't we use these unfinished things in RPs to further their development? Sort of like "Feild testing"?

But, I Digress. I am ASTONISHED at the fact that, despite me saying it OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND... (counts Fingers) OVER again, only Bahran the Big actually listened. I commend him for reading my words before stopping my progress, unlike the majority of you.

Now, If the ressurection being unfinished is the problem, Is there ANY way at all I can help speed it up? ANY POSSIBLE WAY AT ALL? Because apparently, everything I've been told about it has been improvised. I mean, Elderly Ximaxian Mages can use it, Demi God Mages can't. That only means that there's NO progress in the subject, or you are all trying to stop me from getting this up and running. I hope it's the prior, for your sakes.

Soon my enemies will be consumed by flame...



Title: Re: ARGH! AGAIN WITH THE SAME BLOODY THING! ARGH!
Post by: Kalína Dalá'isyrás on April 05, 2005, 01:36:22 PM
With the rescurrection thing

Think about it Necro, everything we do in life, everything that happens to us has an impact on who we are. When one dies in this world and goes to the underworld, they see things they should have never seen and know things they should never know. They will not return as the same person with the knowledge or the sights they had just beheld. A moment after dying it like an eternity in itself in the Underworld. Complete and utter torment. You are "resurrecting" someone who has been there and seen all they had. What they would be resurrected as is unknown. Unpredictable. A monster, a creature of undeniable power that could bring death to the entire world. WHO KNOWS! It is dabbling with a power no mortal should ever dare to grasp.



Title: Oh HO! Your serve
Post by: NecroMage on April 06, 2005, 01:02:22 AM
Then how can high level Ximaxian Mages use it as I was told? Hmm.

Ooh, pwned logically. Try explaining this NOW you people.



Title: You are mistaken...
Post by: Kalína Dalá'isyrás on April 06, 2005, 01:12:22 AM
I didn't say they couldn't perform the spell, I just explained the consequences of performing the spell. Just because they can use it doesn't mean anything. Yes theycan do it but that does not eliminate the disaterous outcome. It is not a spell a mage would do willingly, for they would know the unpredictable chance that they would be putting their own lives and the lives of countless others at risk. Yes, a HIGH level mage and conduct this spell but that does not get rid of the consequences of the soul being brought back from the Underworld.

What about these two suggestions:

1.The mages erase any memories from that experience so that the victims know nothing about it.

2. Right before anyone dies the mages somehow trap their mind and keep it alive while the body is healed

?

Title: Defeat? NEVER!
Post by: NecroMage on April 06, 2005, 01:46:22 PM
Sorry, I'll reword that.

WITH PUPPETS!

:devilish  I cast BOLT 3!!!

:|  (Oh no, I can't dodge!) *dies*

:devilish  I WIN!!!

Now, right between where Doug Dies and the casting of Bolt 3, the Mages focus on Doug's mind and hold it in the exact moment of time before he died. They do this just until his body is revived and then they release the spell, so technically Doug never dies, he just loses his body's functionality while his Brain is in stasis.

And it's not declaring defeat because I won't be pulling people out when I think they *might* die. That would just be done automatically, having been explained early in the story. If that method is what I end up using. Which it almost certainly won't be. I can hear the problems now, they approach accompanied by Birds and deer and other woodland creatures. Let us dance upon their arrival and bow before their wisdom.

How about letting everything take place in a dream? You go to sleep one day and dream about a tournament. If you get killed you wake up and you remember nothing. No resurrections needed.

And necro you could establish a rule...

i think bahran meant it in a sarcastic way Kalina ;)

Necro might give up however i have no other choice then to pursue it, For i have witnessed Necro's long and horrifying journey to get it up,... I have seen the child grow and i hereby addopt it from him.

:idea I think i can work around the ressurection rule and get the thing approved. I hereby order the mods to look at my suggestion which is stated one sentance below this one :crazy

-NO ressurection however when half/death or almost death: powerfull clerics/healers( name your quantity)

-NO hidden island away from santharia, I would like you to imagane a populated city, And then you go into the darkest alleys and even go further. You will find a hidden underground complex created by a secret organisation who makes money with fighting. .. You are brought in against your will (name your entrance; enslaved, set up, anything) to battle against eachother for sheer pleasure of the crowds.

-An OOC message of when you are near-death; Will let us pull you out of the ring and fix you up for mayby another fight. You can only be pulled out if your char does not have enough energy to continue.

-And some other rules wich i haven tought up yet....

-There will also be a story surrounding the alley's for extra indepth play...  I believe that with my modship and dark-ways of telling the story i can really make this interresting. With your permission mods i will write up another entry to get continue this once again.

(My other entry: THE TOURNAMENT OF HEROES was a little to drastic and had to many demons and thingy's. I will make the following entry realistic (and with permission of the mods toss in a demon as finale)

I will santhariaze it and you will give me approval!!!!:smokin  Thank you :p  
And ofcourse Necro; because you are the mother behind this you can state your comment here too. What daya think?

I, NecroMage, hereby sign away all rights, responsibilities and headaches attached to this Gemma forsaken story to Darien. Take good care of my baby, all though I already see it's totally different now ANYWAY, so don't even bother giving me credit. I'm just a guy, who had a dream, and then I died inside because of it.

Also, I will not be participating in this because it defeats the whole point of what I wanted anyway, so you no longer get to beat me up. Blame the rules, Blame the mods, Blame the Admins, Blame Darien, Blame me, Blame yourself, I don't care. I'm leaving. Bye.

Soon my enemies will be consumed by flame...

I agree with Khi, with the specifications you mentioned Darien, this is very much more doable. ^.^ Can't wait to see :)

Just a suggestion if you tie it into the Voldar city game:

applicants actually play out the story introduction in Voldar, and are lead through various alleys and hallways, past big guards and old hags and eventually are told to go to the other forum? It might be a bit time consuming, but it really would help the thing come to life.

I was planning on doing it differently. A couple of people join my story aye? I will immidiatly toss them into seperate threats.

-All people will start INSIDE the city where a short (not-to-time-consuming) story will play... I will have seperate ways of introduction...

1: People have heard of the phenomenon and try to find it for their own entertainment. (AKA the watchers spectators, Those who do not nessacarily want to fight will join here, However you can place bets and stuff like that, This is for if you would like to be in the story but not really want to fight. (you can rise up as a volunteer tough and participate the battle). -The meeting point at the start of the game is yet undifined tough-

2.Then there are those of you who have heard rumors and were indeed interrested to join and match your strenghts with others. These people have high self-confidences and propably underestimating the opposition. They will meet in the dark alleys at a inn that leans trough an underground passage straight towards the tournament.

3.And there will also be people who where captured and taken into slavery to participate against their wills. -I am also unsure how they will start inside the game-

The scenery for the entire story will be in and around the tournaments location (including the dark alleys and such) I : the mod will guide the characters trough the story in possibly the first chapters (i will be there the entire story but i intend to give some more freedom too).And  I only plan on taking it place at nights.

The story will propably continue when the tournament is done. Not the entire story is suppoced to be kill kill kill, If there are 2 in the arena duking it out then the story will continue for the other peoples elsewhere. They could be in the crowds placing bets, Cheering with the crowd or involve himself in the different houses( these houses will be explained later) Anyways you will all have to wait for my oncoming entry. I will ask one of you mods in chat to get approval for some things, however i will explain my entire scheme once i have written the story-entry.

The slavery angle is a bit of a slippery slope. Actual "slavery" (as in: you-are-my-slave-lump-it-or-leave-it-minus-the-leaving slavery) doesn't exist on the free continent of Sarvonia. You might be able to get away with twisting it around. You might be able to get away with poorly-backed loans (Vinny'll break your legs, style) and things like that. You tango with the wrong people, and they'll drag you to a new kind of dance floor :biggrin

The other two look fine. How do you propose the "popularity" of this arena. If that many rumors are floating around, it wont be so secret for long and the fuzz would realistically come down on it. So, I think a bit of back story might do good. Who's started it? Who funds it? Things like that. Nothing too extensive is needed, but small details to work with. :)

ahum working on that, Relax. I've got it all figured out. And that types of slavery is not what i mean, In comes more closer towards the gangsterstyle yes. And it will be a secret ILLIGAL tournament of which not many people know about.

*eagerly starts to work on it, again*

yes. In this story you can die but ressurection will not be possible....

If people loze the battle here they can survive by doing the following things;

-Drop unconcious/ Beaten to half-death/ He or she can have his body parts chopped off slowly bleeding to death. As long as they are not entirely dead they will be ressurected by the clerics. Just give the mod an OOC message, And the fight will be stopped marking the victim as lozer. He will then be fully healed so he can proceed the story.

-The victor can have pity on you and spare you. (if he does not then the mod will make sure that you will not die and pull you out of the ring when you are about to die) Once again a OOC message from the victim is needed.

-Sometimes somebody is to badly wounded (whe're talking about skull-crushers and cutting somebody in half kind of wounds) Then he might die an a OOC message should be given.

-I have an entirely different system planned then the "eliminate opposition to get in round 2" thing. It  has simularities but is created to give people who lose more chanses to fight.

-Those who are sportive and let their chars die; Can easily earn more favour with the mod. Those who tend to godmode will have a faster chance to be eliminated from the contest.

----
anyways you will all read it soon enough. I am far from finished and i have to create lots of factors...

The tournament will stay the center of the story and needs a lot of details and things worked out. I have multiple questions for the mods and can't wait to show them what i've got allready. I need permission for some things. For example to use a "Lord", Necromancers, a demon and Volkek-Oshra. And some things more. I kinda need one of you mods to be on chat(Kalina?).

On that topic of death, a quick note. Since it will be taking place in a Santharian city, the death rule still applies.

Character dies. Character stays dead. I'm not entirely sure how it works if the character is currently running in other stories, so that'll have to be cleared up ASAP.

Those other things dont seem to be a problem. Will they be PC's or NPC's? Same rules apply for all story PC's, balancing and that lot, with a few tiny exceptions that wouldn't otherwise be allowed (Severine's talking sword, Shan's weaver past). The only problem might *drumroll please* be the demon. Current board-wide restrictions are being thought out. What did you have in mind for it? Or, if you wish to divulge later, we can wait.

I have seen demons be used in story's before. And i just needed one for the finale. But it kinda has to evolve ( i can deal with this on a later point; because it is not that important because whe are a looooong way from the finale).

And for death: Nobody Has to die if they don't want to. However if somebody do wants to end the long career of somebody's RP-char then i will allow it.

And for the question NPC's and PC. I dont know what the difference is so i kinda assume that you mean if they are player controlled chars or Non-play-controlled-chars (that is what it means right?) Anyways they will both be available. And i would even give creative people the option to create their own opponent if they wish so. (They will need the story-mods approval to add him/her ofcourse).

Anyways i wanto speak with one of you on IRC so that i can ask a few questions and receive permission on some minor things.

NPC is a non playable character which is a character run by the mod and the mod only (and a few regular players with explicit permission). PC's require new accounts and complete CD's, but they tend to be more effective in roleplaying. For some reason, it always feels different RPing with a NPC than a PC.

We're on IRC whenever we get around to it, so it's up to your own luck to catch one of us on when we're online. You can always just e-mail the admins.

a will e-mail the entire plot as soon as possible. (The players cant read my plots yet)

Anyways i think that there will have to be 3 or 4 Pc's in the story, But it can wait until the story is set up. (they could be Npc's but now you mention it,.... It would be cooler if it where actual Pc's) So... you will read my proposal fast enough anyways.
