Oh-ho... yes. I'm bringing it back, baby. And this time... we're gonna finish it. :hood:

Wait... you don't know what The Tournament is? Fine, I'll tell you:

Rules/Regulations

The Tournament is a forum RPG where players are imprisoned, forced to fight for "entertainment" values. Before each round, I will declare who's fighting who, where the fight will take place, and any additional objectives.

As the players fight, they may only perform strikes, blocks, attacks, or whatever else is suited. NO GOD-MODDING IS ALLOWED. Also, the round ends once a player(s) A.) achieve the objective or B.) die. Do note that only the player himself can make the decision to die. The killer may not. But... if the fight drags on with no end in sight, I will intervene. Players may PM me if they wish to end the fight (with them dying).

After each round, a point will be added to the victor(s), and a point will be subtracted from the loser(s). There is no limit to how many points you may earn, but if you obtain a total score of -3, you're dead.

While imprisoned, players may talk to one another, act in character, or whatever else is suitable. But, you are not allowed to kill each other nor break out of your cells (you will die if you try... :kz:). Only at certain points (which I will indicate) will you be given specific freedoms and/or actions.

If you're confused on what to do, I recommend visiting this link. (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?13401-The-Tournament&highlight=Tournament)

How to Sign-Up

Basically, all you'll need to do is fill out a character bio. How you do that, well... I'll show you:

Name: (Something to call you by; can be proper/nickname/short)
Gender: (What sex you are; MUST choose one)
Appearance: (What you look like; list add specific details if you wish)
Abilities: (What powers/skills you have; the more specific, the better)
Equipment: (What "tools" you carry; NO doomsday weapons, please)
Biography: (A brief description of your character; a lead-up to why you're competing is an example of one)
Weaknesses: (Any "weak points"; you MUST list at least two or one major weakpoint)

For an example of what a bio looks like, I've pulled mine up from the last tournament:
Name: John "Jack" Russell Wescott
Gender: Male
Appearance: Roughened, rotten, Old Western apparel
Abilities: Cursed, marksmanship, incredible endurance, invulnerability to small projectiles, "dirty" fighting
Equipment: 2 Colt Peacemakers, 1 Winchester .30-30 rifle, sachel of T.N.T., Cavalry sword, undead steed
Biography: Known as "Outlaw Jack", Johnathon Russell Wescott was a notoriously famous and ruthless outlaw who ravaged the Old West and terrorized the very inhabitants who lived in it. When he died, a curse was bestowed upon him, forbidding him eternal rest, and causing endless torment from the souls in which he killed from his mortality. Now brought back from the grave, Jack must fight once more to finally get the sleep he has mourned for centuries.
Weaknesses: Limited ammo, very light armour

RockSauron aims to find a way into the Demonic Realm so that he may gain the powers of the demons and rule the world.

Since then he's been working as a mercenary, thought dead by the U.S.

So, if you love to slaughter other members, be a hero, or just act like a total bad-donkey, then I recommend this game for you. Once I get enough participants, I'll start the game in a new thread titled The Tournament II.

That just leaves us with one question: Are you ready? :kz:

good...good...lets not let the OTHER RPGs die though :(

- Name: Leon "Zensoku"

-Gender: Male

-Appareance: Short dark hair, not too tall (about 5 feet-ish), athletc composture (not too bulky or wimpy) Hands and legs are scaly and clawed (Scales are dark), wings (bat-like) white eyes and fangy-is teeth.

-Abilities: Can fly/ glide, shoot fire/magam blasts from hands, has somewhat control over fire/ magma overall, and extreme speed, fastest being alive, this with his appearance gives him the the nickname "Speed Demon" often.

-Equipment: Only a Chinese Sword, which he covers in flames.

-Biography: Human-Speed *Szchizian hybrid, Leon was sent away to a Speed-Szchizian village to train to his full potential, but one day the vilage got attacked by a pack of demons, they were kiled by the Szchizians, but one managed to curse Leon before getting killed
This is slowly turning him into a mindless demon
(out of space)

(*Szchizian - Like hunans but with extremely higher Phisical, Psychic, and/ or magik abilities, but technologically deprived according to my story)

Silverleon
05-21-2010, 01:17 AM
Altho slowiy turning him onto a mindless demon who'll destroy anything in its path, these "Demonic abilities" merge and boost his already Szchizian ones, allowing him to reach limits above normal.
He enters the turnament in his quest to find some way to cure his curse before its too late.

-Weaknesses: Like most Speed Szchizians altho extremely fast not "extremely" powerful, and lacks defense as wearing any sort of defensive equipment would slow his movements, the scaly part of his arms and legs only provide partial defence.

(*Demons - Demons of Szchizian land or not evil dark underworld dewles, just some scaled beast like creatures with some understandong in the dark arts)

Is that good, or should i change anything?
