Ok, contestants, Im not a speech person, but i'll try it anyway... We all have our reasons for entering. Some enter for bounty money, Some for bloodshed, Some for revenge, and some for fun. We all are here for one reason in partcular... Because this is an Awesome Forum filled with Awesome People battling on an Awesome Thread! This is it! The fight of the century! Tonight, We dine on the forums! This is it! PREPARE YOURSELVES! Lets keep it clean, we dont want this closed down.... Here is the basic rundown: 1. You can join at anytime 2. You can switch characters as long as no one claimed it already. 3. You can use any weapons, abilities, etc, that your character has. 4. Anyone can fight on the forum. there is no limit. 5. There are no fight times. the fighting is continous, so there are no official breaks. (if you need a break, just leave for a while) 6. There are no rules, but please act like you are in the presence of an admin. they may be watching... 7. No Switchfighting (See Q&A) 8. Have fun! The idea of a Roleplay fight is to battle with your charaters. What does that mean? That could range from arguing which has better stuff, (My stuff is better because...) To actual mock fighting. (Solid Snake puts Squall in a head lock) The fighting style is up to you. Q&A time, just so everything is clear. Q: "All right! I'm gonna use the strongest godliest character ever and win! How about that?" A: While you are welcome to use any character, please be mindful of the other players. If Heihachi Mishima and Ryu are duking it out and you bring in Superman, it breaks the balance of the thread and can ruin everyone's fun. Let's not make this an "I win everything" thread. Q: I wanna use (blank character), but they died early in the thread. Can I use them still? A: This thread has seen many years and many fighters, so sometimes a soft reboot is necessary to keep things alive here. If a fighter has been dead for a long enough time, feel free to use them. Q: Where are we fighting? A: Wherever you want, just specify during your post. Ex: Hehachi ducks Ryu's flying kick, and heel kicks him hard into a tree, splintering it's bark." If you want to smash someone into a car or house, just say it. HOWEVER; do not abuse this. Don't make up enviromental objects on the fly just to win or gain an advantage UNLESS it was previously stated or implied. What is acceptable: Heihachi stares through the foliage at Ryu, sweating from the jungle heat. He stomps his foot, leaves and bugs scattering at his feet. He lunges forward and punches Ryu into a tree behind him. Here, the jungle is the setting, so things in the jungle are game. Snakes, tigers, trees, etc. If you don 't think something works, then discuss it with the other players. What is NOT acceptable: Heihachi stares at Ryu from across the street, the city smog getting to him. He lunges forward and punches Ryu into a dragons mouth, who chews him up and spit's him into a spike pit. Don't do that. Also environments change, so make sure everyone is on the same page. If you don't want an environment, you don't need to have one. Q: Can I switch characters? A: Yes, but please do this sparingly. More often then not players devolved into Switchfighting, where players would constantly switch characters to 1-up the other players fighters. This led to horrible unbalancing, prevented any actual fighting from happening, and even led the thread into complete standstill a few times. Just be sensible, and don't switch just to prevent dying. Q: Can we use OC characters? A: Noooooo. We tried OC characters once, and it absolutely wrecked thread balance. Please only use established characters. Ok, now you know the rules.....
