Okay, guys. I've heard from SteamTankDriver, and he's ready to go.
First, we need to decide about rules revisions. Here's what I see with that:1. Raise points allowance, but only by a little. Max 25 pts, or just 5 or 10.
2. We each volunteer to read one of the new army books, looking for items that are overpowered, unsporting, or just don't work in an arena, like the Annoyance of Netlings.
3. We set some deadlines. I'm not interested in us beating ourselves with a calendar date, so I'd propose a loose deadline. Do we want to be kicked off in, say, 2 weeks, 3 at the most.
4. I'll start a signup thread now. 16 people to start. Same rules as before with a note to use
5. Set a story sequence. Here's what I think...a. Prologue - STD
b. Monster Arena Kickoff - AFG
c. Spring Arena - STD, DVC
d. Magic Arena - Phoenix
Repeat b. - d.
Okay, I started the signup thread. Everyone, please read it. I did a very small pre-story and made some rules changes.
Since I upped the overall point allowance, I removed some of the extras, such as Tomb Kings/Princes and VC getting larger allowances.
We still need to look for new items to ban/restrict.
Now it's time to start some serious planning and writing.
Cheers all! This is going to be great. I think people are going to have a blast follow the arena!
pssst, you may want to update your Sig.
Looks great so far. I'll have to iron out the creases in Round 2, then I'll be ready to go.
Two questions that have come up...
First about Daemons...I really don't have an opinion until I read the book more closely. Right now, it seems that certain gifts are limited to lords for certain reasons, and hence I'm inclined to say no.Originally Posted by Undead Bonzi
Second, regarding arrows...Here, I think no. An arena is about hand-to-hand combat. Mano a mano. Ranged weapons are for sissy elf types.Hey, do characters that come with bows as standard get a free shot pre-charge?
That said, I thought you were a WE player...
Teaching at a school today, woo! ill give this all a read when i get home.
Okay, two more things.
First, can a character killed in the last arena be resurrected for this one? I like "no" simply for narrative continuity and to keep things novel.
Second, I think the Palanquin is out for Daemons. 6 attacks is over the top. And what about a Juggernaut? Strength 5, toughness 4 is pretty darned good for a standard mount.
