Wiki Wars Redux: CANCELLED
« on: April 25, 2017, 11:52:28 pm »

This is a game of Wikipedia Article Warfare. Like any other version of Wikipedia Article Warfare, the goal of this game is to incapacitate all of the other players to the point where they are unable to continue. The simplest way to achieve this goal would be to kill the other players, or put them in a comatose/long-term K.O.'d state. Of course, there are potentially other viable methods. Included in said methods are imprisonment, as well as severe brain damage and mental trauma. Basically anything that damages to the mind to the point where they can't even cognitively function well enough to be a proper contender anymore. The last player remaining will be the Champion.

As I've said before in older threads, the original idea for this sort of game belongs to TCM. I don't intend to compete with Greatness in terms of players in this one. I greatly enjoy the plot and world building they do in their game, but I think some of us at Bay12 might like another go at the classic mindless violence the original concept embodied. The champion always gets to be a returning fighter if they want.

In. If this ever gets a second round, I dare you to give everyone a single article from TVTropes.

Work on a potential forum game for my return to Bay12. Figure out parts that puzzled me before. Find more things to figure out that I can't. Work on another game instead of solving them. Get distracted and stop working. Remember it a week or two later. Remember I'm still on hiatus. Illogically, Be too ashamed to return yet. Repeat ad nauseam.

Finally have a game completely ready. Wait a week before posting it out of laziness.

Starting Area: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President%27s_College,_Minuwangoda

Outside of President's College, Minuwangoda, 6 unusual people stand in an uneasy circle. This prestigious academy is located in the town of Minuwangoda, which is further located in the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. This college located on an island nation is to be the starting point for the competition known as The Wiki Wars.

The first of our competitors is known as Enemy Post. They have few material resources with them; only the standard clothing and money given to all combatants. But beneath that simple exterior is a interesting set of abilities that prevent them from being marked as an average, ordinary person.

The next combatant goes by the name of Mallos. They are Head of the German Society of Montreal. Mallos is wearing uniform 21 of the Alaskan Aces, a Basketball team in the Philippine Basketball Association. They also hold a basketball in their arms, as well as a highly decorated mirror. Such a mirror is used in the tradition known as Ayeneh taudani.

Third is the head of Imazon, a non profit organization dedicated to conserving the Amazon Rain Forest. For this competition, they go by NRDL! Well, Wiki Wars is one way to promote an activist cause, that's for sure. They brought some interesting literature with them, as well as an old award winning Japanese film.

Next up is Ziizo. I've heard of culture warriors, but this is ridiculous! Their only asset is a rap-hiphop album by Mac Dre, no relation to the more famous Dr Dre. They have a great many skills though, and those could bring them to victory.

Fifth in our line up is Rautherdir. They own Ed Carpenter racing, and wear a Formula One Suit to show for it. Nearby is a vehicle that they have the keys for, a Dalarra DW12 Formula Racing Car! Sitting in the palm of their hand is a Zebra Dwarf Boa. They have the know how to care for such a creature, and they're a pretty good driver too. They also have a couple unusual but potentially powerful abilities at their disposal. If victory was based on the raw power of one's articles alone, they might be the winner.

Last but not least is OceanSoul! They are the owner of a Christian Broadcasting channel based in Illinois, WCFC-CA. In addition, they wear uniform number 25 of Dynamo Dresden, a German Association Football team. Like Mallos, they have an appropriate ball to suit their skills. Also in their possessions are a Copy of Trivial pursuit, and a letter of reprimand from the pope to be delivered to a church of their choosing.

They all know why they are here. These varied individuals wait patiently, and a bell tolls within the nearby building, marking the time as 7 am, the time that their battle is set to begin! What will they do to claim victory in this competition?

Note 1: Abilities do stack, but there's a limit to how high that stacking can go.
Note 2: If you have an item in your inventory based on a foreign language, you have knowledge of that language to go with it.
Note 3: There will be no more people spawning in during this round.
Note 4: Everyone has been given roughly 50 USD worth of the local currency, Sri Lankan Rupees. I made the number a bit more even for simplicity's sake. That, or whomever gave you that currency took a fee for their work in converting it. Your call. 1 USD is roughly 150 Sri Lankan Rupees at the time of this writing. Spend wisely!
Note 5: There is currently a barrier of sorts around the college. You must stay in the vicinity for at least one turn before you are free to go wherever you like. Feel free to ask for nearby locations, which I will use a map to find when possible.

Edit: Apparently I spelled Ziizo's name wrong. It is an easy mistake to make. This has been fixed.

Form tentacles and armor using my beard hair. Use these to defend against initial attacks.

Announce a challenge in a game of Trivial Pursuit, where the winner gets to kill the losers without resistance! A Shadow Pursuit, if you will! All those playing the game are not to be harmed by those outside the game, lest they forfeit themselves unto the harmed, and those playing the game cannot harm eachother until the game is done.
