Welcome to the next edition of Dedman's Create-A-Tourney Tournament!
For those of you who haven't been tuning in, the Create-A-Tourney Tournament is a tournament where you have come up with nearly every aspect of how the tournament functions. You choose the powers, you choose the skills, you choose the gear, and you choose the arenas!
But Dedman, you lazy slut, if we are doing all the picking then what is there for you to do? Nothing, that's the beauty of it, you do all the work! I am a genius for figuring this out, right? I suck? Shut up, you suck! Wait, wait, I'm sorry come back we can work this out. I'll do all the administration crap like picking what things are allowed, setting up the matches, and coordinating all the crap no one else wants to do. So still on board? Awesome, then let's get to it.
Some of you may have played this particular game before and are aware of the rules and how things go but there is a new twist. Borrowing from Lunacyde's awesome Civil War idea, you will split into two teams of 8 people and do battle with one another until one side comes out on top. That's what she said, right? Sorry, I'll stop. Anyways, each team will choose a leader who chooses which arenas to send each of the team's characters. Those who fail their missions will be eliminated. Then we do it all again. Split you into 2 teams of 4 people and pick a leader and blah blah blah. All of this until one person has won the war!
Now this will take place in multiple phases, in phase one you guys suggest things that you want to have access to in the tourney and arenas. I have final say on what is and is not allowed but I am relatively open to anything you may suggest but I have some general guidelines you may want to follow for each category. Remember, try and keep things roughly street level. Now I won't be contributing anything to the list so if you want it in, you better suggest it.
Some of the more intrepid among you may go and look for the two existing threads and simply copy and paste all of those suggestions but I would like to form a new list with new possibilities. I realize that there will likely still be some overlap but try and keep it to a minimum.
Powers will be separated into two types, individual powers and powersets. Individual powers are just one power (IE: Bone Claws) while powersets are every power that the character may have (IE: Wolverine). Most powers will likely be allowed but keep it street level. No reality, time, luck, size, high end matter, or high end energy manipulation. Some powers that are automatically banned: Intangibility of any sort, power mimicry of any sort, telepathy. Magic will be prohibited on a case by case basis but generally assume that it is out. Powers from obscure people would benefit from providing as much information as possible (I am looking at you Beatboks!).
Skills can be pretty much anything and there aren't any real limitations. However, no form of Plot Devicing will be allowed so no Reed Richards or Batman pull a win out of my ass type things will be allowed.
Equipment will be separated into two types, conventional and unconventional. Conventional equipment is pretty much anything that exists in the real world while unconventional equipment is fictional. Pretty much anything that violates any of the rules for powers will be out. If a street leveler uses it regularly then it is likely okay.
Anything goes and in fact the more dangerous the better so give me hell, which is also a completely reasonable suggestion. As this is a civil war, you may want to also suggest objectives to complete in these arenas. Pictures, videos, and other descriptors always welcome. I am shooting for at least 15.
TL; DR Tell me what you want in a tourney and I will do it!
