PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCMENT
Alright, so we're going to address the notion of reserving Tier 3 characters ahead of time. I didn't even think it was going to need to be addressed until later, but someone reminded me that we should probably figure out how it's going to be handled as of now.
Reserves for Tier 3 characters will be accepted right now. How this will work is a bit different, however. Since we have no way of knowing ahead of time who will in the end show serious commitment to the game and earn the right to a Tier 3 PC, this is how it is going to work...
Tier 3 characters will open up for play amongst players exactly 30 days from today, so starting November 26th.
Players interested in playing a Tier 3 character in the future should PM the three GMs (LunarSage, Josietta and Wispyr
) with the three Tier 3 characters they would like to play most, in order of who they want to play more than the last one. Please, please PLEASE PM us rather than talk about your choices in the public threads.
The subject header in the PM should be "Marvel: A New Hope TIER 3 REQUEST (<Player's E name goes here>)"
Example: "Hey, awesome GMs! I'm Player X (Speed Player's older brother, but that's totally a secret) and these are the Tier 3 characters I'm interested in!"
2. Beta Ray Bill
How this will work is that when the time comes, we will have saved all the PMs and will determine who has shown us they can handle a more powerful character through their commitment to the game and if a given character has more than one player interested, the priority they assigned to that character will help us determine who gets to play that character. So say two players want to play the Hulk. Player One had the Hulk at their 1 spot and Player Two had Beta Ray Bill as their 1 spot and Hulk as their 2 spot. Assuming there was no other interest in Beta Ray Bill, Player Two would get Beta Ray Bill and Player One would get Banner... er, Hulk! I meant Hulk, not puny Banner!
In the event of two or more players with a character at the same priority, the choice will be at our discretion as GMs. Each of the 3 GMs will get a vote with my vote working as a tie breaker in the case of three votes for three separate players.
Now... if anyone has any questions about this that don't include posting their choices here in the public threads, go ahead and shoot. It's ok, I'm bulletproof. Or I have a healing factor. So It won't hurt me. Or it will, but I'll get better. >.>
