Interest Check: Magical Duelists
« on: March 16, 2008, 11:33:29 AM »
A great arena where people from every corner of the world converge to, seeking fame and challenge as Duelists. The Duelists are a unique and interesting type of warrior, the better battles often lasting for days. In the arena, the two Duelists will enter, and assume their positions in small circles on the ground. They cannot leave this circle, or they will lose.

Supplied for them in this collosul arena, is a small forest, a lake and stream, a craggy, dried desert, rocky alcoves and cliffs, natural drafts, flaming torches stone pillars connecting to the ethereal planes, everything a magic user could want to summon the elements on their own.

Great, subtle and cunning battles are waged to force the opponent to leave their circle. The terrain can be shifted, fire and wind set upon the enemy, barricades built, areas flooded, creatures from other realms summoned and tethered to do the Duelists bidding, attacking the enemy or defending their summoners from danger.

These fights can be won by out muscling the opponent, but a skilled and cunning Duelist will not be toppled by sheer ferocity. It takes creativity, tactics and patience. The longest battle was fought for seventeen days, and eventually ended in a draw.

Players are welcome to create any kind of silly, over the top anime character they like :) and yes, catgirls/boys are welcome. A backstory and a reason for traveling here to Duel, plus a description of your weaknessess and strengths would be appreciated.

Huh... sounds similar to an idea I tossed about a while ago, based on the Magic: The Gathering card game. I might be up for it, when I return from break.

So you have players facing each other? Will there be any kind of rule to determine the outcome? Else it's just going to be whoever is holding back the least...

It can be one on one or in special circumstances two on two, but each time, the win condition is to remain in your circle and force the enemy from theirs. If I somehow flooded your area and you didn't come up with a way to counter it, washing you out of the circle would win the match for me. However, you could easily raise the ground up and out of the water, saving yourself.

You can manipulate the terrain around your circle, but not the circle itself, and only vertically. I could raise your circle up into a pillar and send flying monsters to its base to destroy it. How you combat that is completely up to you. Summon monsters to fight off the sabotagers, blow them out of the sky, or take a chance and let them destroy the pillar, and try to land your circle safely.

Update: The fights will be decided through votes. When a fight has drawn on enough, we'll call a vote from the players in an OOC thread, and people can vote for who they think should win, and once thats in stone, the two are just going to have to colaborate towards that.

Wouldn't it be better to run it till the enimy is surrendered/unconscious?

The actual fight is won by knocking the opponent out of their circle. But since its freeform, that would always resolve in someone willingly throwing the fight. So having an OOC vote near the end can decide who should win, and the fight will continue onward.
