The Tournament

The Court of Arcani hosts this gruesome blood sport on an string of abandoned islands in the Pacific. One island is where the combatants live in the tournament, and the others provide 'stages' for their brutal battles.

There are cameras everywhere, for the Court streams this live on the internet and takes bets. Around the world millions tune in and watch the vicious meta-humans fight in glorious high definition. Governments squawk and moral guardians rail against it, but the money rolls in.

And it rolls out. The winner of the Tournament is guaranteed a prize of one million U.S. dollars.. enough to draw them in.. but hopefully small enough to pull them back next year.

The Main Island

This is where the fighters live during the tournament. It offers well equipped gyms, spas, pools.. and doctors. Lots of doctors. Someone has to preform those after action autopsies.

[[ Rules!

This is both the IC thread and the OOC thread. Consider it an open interaction thread, its location is the main island. Feel free to drop by and do whatever, but don't destroy the entire island lol.

Standard CVnU Rules apply.

Tournament rules! You need to post a link to your bio if you intend to fight in the tournament, that way everyone can conferm you're actually a street leveler before the fighting starts.

It will be single elimination.

Rounds will be decided randomly by me. There may be odd numbers of people, or people may drop out or stop responding. In that case I will select someone at random to receive a buy.

If the combatants of a round cannot decide who one, it will be treated as a player dispute and the CoE will be asked to vote on a winner.

Each fight will have its own thread that I will set up and provide the OP for.

Have fun, and if you have any questions ask! ]]

Cool looks!
 
Do I count as street-levelling?

#5 Posted by Ishin (6831 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks amazing :)

@_Legion_: Awesome. Good to go in my books.

@Icarusflies: Masquerade looks street level to me. Half-Moon I'm not sure, can I get a second opinion from someone on him?

@Arquitenens: You do indeed, by any measure I can think of ;-)

@Impero: Thankies :-)

Io is indeed more complicated. 
 
@Amaranth_Strix
Make him sign a promise form that says if he loses he won't bring an earthquake or tsunami over the island.

@Amaranth_Strix: Oh! You're allowing weapons, now?

@Naamah_Obyzouth: Thankies!

@Arquitenens: Well equipment is part of characters so if a character is allowed there equipment is too. That's why I look and see how good the equipment is.

Iron man for example is well above street level because of his equipment.

@Amaranth_Strix: Alright!  That does make things a bit more difficult. I'm not the most technologically sound here right now. But Impero doesn't look to be in, and Gambler hasn't been around either. I may possibly be spared the worst pasting of my life here.

@Arquitenens: You're blond. G will show.

@Amaranth_Strix: Darn it don't say that! If you don't say it he might not notice and he might not show! But if you say it he'll show. And then I'll get beat down.

@Amaranth_Strix: @Arquitenens: I'm never totally sure with Io....but the point's kinda moot since I really wanted to use Masque for this anyway. ^_^

>_>

<_<

Io will watch from the sidelines and throw things at people.

@Bloody_Mist: Bloody Mist is good to go!

How fast is Frenemy? Are we talking under supersonic, or over?

@Icarusflies: No problemo! Masque is perfectly fine.

This is too much for me! I'm totally gonna get stomped!

#23 Posted by Bloody_Mist (36 posts) - - Show Bio

@Amaranth_Strix: Probably not even supersonic but maybe a speeding car?

I actually added another that I'm considering lol, ugh. Sorry I can't decide atm.

@Amaranth_Strix: I'd join this but Impero isn't a street leveler :P

@Impero: No. Not next time. Don't be so eager to hurt me.
 
@OutIaw
I'll give it my best shot for you, then.

@Bloody_Mist: Speeding car is just fine!

So is the new character. 'But it happened. So get over it' made me chuckle hehe.

@Impero: Indeed he is not lol.

@__Grimm__: Alrighties, I'll probably start up the first match tonight.

First match! Who is ready to fight TONIGHT!

@Amaranth_Strix: Tonight? Time Zones are having their revenge v.v

I might be able to go. I think so, yeah.
 
(Calm down. Deep breaths)

#37 Posted by Amaranth (8210 posts) - - Show Bio

@Arquitenens: Alrighties, if we can find someone else to fight you we'll have round one ready to go.

@Arquitenens
Good luck. Hopefully Gambler doesn't randomly appear to challenge you.

If no one has stepped up to Arq by the time I can get back to the computer (which is unlikely), I'll do it. Now, it's time for some finger rest.

@_Quickster_: That's a wallpaper for 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

The DC fighting game that I shall likely try out.

Well now I definitely must too. Look at that! 

Guess I should learn about it first.

Zauby's inherent cuteness gives her away.
