Spoiler: Old OP (click to show/hide)

In this game, each player takes the part of a single head of a hydra.  Each time a head is removed, the next 2 people on the waitlist will replace it, unless the stump was cauterized or frozen.  The process takes approximately five minutes in-game due to the mythic nature of hydras imbuing them with magic properties.  Entrance is based on a first come, first served basis.  As you are all one part of a hydra, actions outside of your head will have to be agreed upon by a majority of the players.

Spoiler: Head Sign-up (click to show/hide)


Each head has an ability to wield one of the elements of magic that hydras have access to, which is Earth, Electric, or Water.  The way elements interact is listed below:
Earth - Strong against Fire and Electric, Weak to Water and Air
Water - Strong against Fire and Earth, Weak to Electric and Ice
Electric - Strong against Air and Water, Weak to Earth and Ice
Fire - Strong against Air and Ice, Weak to Earth and Water
Air - Strong against Earth and Ice, Weak to Electric and Fire
Ice - Strong against Electric and Water, Weak to Fire and Air
Earth based hydras are typically colored in tones of green and/or brown.  Electric based are typically colored in shades of yellow.  Water based hydras are typically colored the deeper tones of blue.

Hydras are able to regenerate any limb separated from the main body, though limited at only one additional limb such as a leg or wing from the base limbs (Front-left leg, Front-right leg, Back-right leg, Back-right leg, Back-left leg, Right Wing (if applicable), Left Wing (if applicable)).  A new tail is split off each time a head is grown.  There is no known maximum of heads a hydra can have, as by the time a hydra might achieve the maximum, they move onto a phase where the maximum has been raised.

Hydras also are innately poisonous, allowing bite based attacks to poison opponents that survive the attack, causing 5 damage/turn.  For a few seconds, their treads have a poison laced within them, though only enough to slightly damage vegetation and make a bare-footed person have the equivalent to a mild fever for an hour on occasion.  Claw-based attacks are not poisonous.

Hydras have two forms of communication, speaking aloud or speaking through a hive-mind that links all of the heads.  Differentiation of this communication is via quotation marks for speaking aloud, or asterisks for communication over the hive mind.  The former tends to be rarely used, as the latter allows for far quicker communication, and allows the hydra to keep their conversations to themselves.

You were planning to have a 15 year old magical girl kill Witches by drinking them under the table!? It's original, at least.

"Owwie Goldie, Don't hurt Walton, Walton was Hungry....NOW WALTON MAD!!"
Walton continues to nibble on Goldy's Face meat
"Ow! Damn you!"

The way to victory treads not through passivity. Strike at your foes, as they surely plan to strike you.
