Welcome!

Welcome to my "new" idea. First of all, I would like to say that this is not an RPG scenario, because I don't host those anymore, instead, this will be a debating challenge. The premise of the challenge is to basically be able to challenge participant's critical thinking and put their debating skills to the test, by making them debate situations that they may have not debated before. Think mission tournaments, with old-school style scenario elements thrown in.

How To Play

Okay so basically there will be two roles, the challengers and the gamemasters. The challengers will be the 4 participants who will attempt to go through "Hellstorm's Forest" (the setting of this race), while the 3 gamemasters will be the ones attempting to slow them down (I will be the head gamemaster).

Challengers (0\4)

If you want to be a challenger, you can pick any two street-level characters that you are confident in representing, said character must be weaker than a morals off 616 Spider-Man, and by weaker, I mean that your character can in no way, shape, or form beat or stalemate a morals off 616 Spider-Man (RT). While you can pick two characters, you can only use one at a time, I am only giving you the option to pick more than one so you can rotate between them in-between challenges so as to not get bored of using the same character over and over again.

Asides from the above, there really is no other rules. You can go haywire with whatever powers or summons you want, as long as your character fits the one category of being below Spidey.

Now, after you have picked your character\s, you will have to debate how your character will be able to get through the challenges, but not only that, you will be racing against your other challengers. So, in addition to arguing how your character overcomes a said challenge, you will have to explain how fast your character can achieve victory (do not worry, the speed of actually posting is not going to be a big factor).

The challenges that you and your opponents won't be the same, you may consider the challenges to be unfair or unequally difficult, but that's the point of this exercise, to improve your ability to think outside the box. In some challenges, you may have to argue how your character beats an opponent, gets through rough terrain, sneaks through a campsite, fends off poison etc, the challenges can be anything really. There may also be bonus factors in a given challenge, for example, I may say that for a given challenge, your character will be OOC or will have full knowledge and what not.

In a challenge, you will be given 2-3 posts to prove your point (although if you're arguing against terrain, you only really need 1 post) Then there will be a voting period after each challenge, wherein everyone, except challengers in this event, will be able to vote. I think there will be around 4-5 challenges in this event per challenger, but it may vary.

The winner of the challenge is the one who can prove that their character can get through the forest before anyone else can.

Gamemasters (0\2)

If you want to be a gamemaster, you have to be versatile on what you can debate for because your main goal is to represent various enemies that will attempt to slow down, or even stop the challengers from completing this event. To win, you must prevent any of the challengers from getting to the finish line. But of course, I will be the headmaster, and I will make sure that you will be representing appropriate enemies, also none of the characters you will be representing will have morals as a factor.

@major_hellstrom: Alright that's fine, how about Sayaka Miki instead? Also if we decide to swap characters, will we know what kind of event is next beforehand?

They're witches from the Harry Potter series, Minerva and Bellatrix.

Alrighty then.

@major_hellstrom: Out of curiosity, how long are we each gonna get for each post, the standard week or so? And if someone drops does his replacement start were he leaves off or does he get a different gauntlet?

@gilgameshthepimptoendallpimps: For standard battles, a week probably. But some challenges may have a time element added to it (the idea is to put people out of their comfort zone, so if you’re slow, I’ll probably give you lesser time to post).

If someone drops, the replacement would get a different gauntlet, but they would have lesser challenges.

I mean that your character can in no way, shape, or form beat or stalemate a morals off 616 SSpider-Man

I like how this is a rule and yet, some people here would handily beat Spidey.

@gilgameshthepimptoendallpimps: @gearsecond659: @maestromage: @anthp2000:

So it looks like these will be my challengers

1. ANTHP2000 ( Minerva/Bellatrix)

2. Gearsecond659 (Afro Samurai/Jonathan Joestar)

3. Gilgameshthetoendallpimps (Sayaka Miki/Weiss Schnee)

4. Maestromage (YJ Nightwing/YJ Aqualad)

If you have any last minute changes, make them now.

Also, name which of your characters will be your “main”, or rather which you will use first or more frequently for the first challenge.

@major_hellstrom: I guess I'll double check that New 52 Midnighter wouldn't be allowed. I didn't ask because I assumed he wouldn't be, but if he is I guess I'll take him instead of Nightwing. Aqualad will be my starting character.

@maestromage: If I ban the doors and 1 second speed burst then N52 Midnighter could be allowed. But I’d rather not ban abilities, since it goes against the spirit of this.

@major_hellstrom: To be fair, Midnighter uses both doors and his speed bursts infrequently in the New 52 so it wouldn't change his character much. However if you really don't wan't to ban abilities then I'll be fine with Nightwing. It's up to you.

@major_hellstrom: Are our characters going to be healed between each round, or is it one giant gauntlet where damage is permanent? Also if we fail a mission do we 'die' or do we just move on, but either the character we used gone or with a much slower time.
