I'd enter a character!
I'd be interested in writing battles
I'd be interested in rolling battles
All of the above!
Actually, I'd rather run one myself!
I might participate if there were places free
I think I'd just watch and see how it works
What are you on about? What are these Arena of Death things anyway?
As you may be aware, Librarium Online recently had a change of Admin, with KyleT taking over the reigns from Blackhat. You may also be aware that he's trying to breathe a bit of new life into the forums, to make them a little larger and more active.
One of the areas that has come up as something that could aid this cause has been the Arenas of Death. They used to be quite regular here, but at some point they simply faded away. I think it was a shame, as we had some great writers and wonderfully creative characters coming through.
But this isn't about starting a new arena right now. I'm aware the holiday season is coming up - people go on holidays, spend time with family and friends, so I don't think now is quite the right time for a new arena.
What I do want to do with this thread is just see how much interest is out there regarding the arenas. If one was to start in the new year some time, would you be interested in participating? Would you enter a character? Or would you be more interested in writing battles or rolling the results? Maybe a bit of both?
If you have no idea what these Arenas are all about, feel free to ask and I'm sure someone will be able to fill you in.
Also I thought a poll might help with this thread, so (hopefully) there are voting options at the top! I've never done a poll before, so it's likely to go horribly wrong...
Anyway, I'm keen to hear anything you have to say about the Arenas. I can't promise I'll run one next year, but should anyone be interested maybe this thread will let them see that there are others out there that share that interest. And maybe, if you find yourself with some free time over the Christmas/New Year break, you might just want to think about creating a character... Just in case!
You know me - I'd be up for any kind of writing/participating in one these things. Getting a good team of writers together would probably be the best way to go, and maybe a backup roller or two, or publicize the builds and effects so that if you go missing (or hide, more likely) we have a backup plan to finish this thing.
You going to do any hooks, like the team battles from City of Shadows? Or just keep things standard? I'd like to see someone do a serious role-playing event some time, where the arena master is the acting DM, and rolls are done via DiceTower or whatever that site was.
Well, I wasn't really planning on running one, to be honest. I started the thread thinking I might just generate some interest, and then come new year someone might put their hand up to kick one off.
That said, I did just have an idea that might be workable as an arena of some type. I'll give it some thought, and see if I can bash it into some kind of arena-worthy shape.
I'd like to see a few more votes on here before I get too deep into it, though! Early days yet, I know
I've been away for a while now, but I might be interested in doing pretty much everything, except to run one.
That means Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest-son-of-a-bitch in space!
