    Default Insanowar, OR The Most Gloriously Violent Crossover Imaginable

    Welcome to Insanowar

    Da Rules:

    1.) There are five players, each of which represent a commander of their army.

    2.) Each player takes turns choosing some powerful character, semi-powerful group of characters, or large mob of expendable non-characters from any sort of media. Examples: The TMNTs, a Dreadnought from 40K, a mob of kobolds.

    3.) When each player has 10 selections, the game begins.

    4.) A map will be provided showing the layout of the battlefield. Each person will have a base of operations with which they can wage war. Note that each base is about 2 turns away from each other.

    5.) A static turn order is established. In each turn, the player dictates what their troops are doing, as far as the opponent can see. Secret actions need not be reported (although it is good sportsmanship to give hints as to what your are planning).

    6.) When troops engage, the person whose turn the engagement took place on decides the outcome, which will usually NOT be all one way. If there is any friendly dispute (and the dispute WILL be friendly, or else), other players/playgrounders chime in with their opinions. If no consensus is reached, it's a 50/50 slaughter.

    7.) The winner is the one who wins.

    Da Guidelinez:

    1.) You can't choose anyone TOO powerful. No gods, demigods, anything like that. Make it something that's about the same power level as the other troops on the field.

    2.) Don't be a jerk. The objective here is to have fun--frankly, who wins and who loses is pretty arbitrary anyway. This game is definitely straddling the line between Silly and Structured.

    3.) Respect Awesomeness. If a player is pulling off something that's just too awesome to believe, that should aid his victory.

    4.) Enjoy yourself. Seriously, guys.

    Alright, I'd like to be in the starting rotation. Anyone else interested in being one of the four other warlords, or perhaps applying for a judging position?

    Alright, awesome, our roster is full!

    Let's take a look at unit selection:

    A good baseline for a Insanowar unit selection is: a level 17 or so mage. He can wreak great devastation, and has some neat special abilities, but is very much mortal. Any selection (whether one unit or a group of units) should basically be like this guy.

    If that's not a good enough explanation, just follow suit from the units already chosen.

    Alright, our turn order for selecting units is:

    Rutskarn
    Reinholdt
    Khrima (D_Lord)
    Recaiden
    Selrahc

    I'll make the first selection, then Reinholdt.

    If necessary, provide some sort of link or description of your selection.

    5 semi-powerful Jedi Knights

    Self explanatory.

    @\/ See, that's a good selection right there. Can be used very well, but not godlike.

    (Unless you abuse his I-already-planned-thisification. Remember, even Da Batz is mortal)

    I think I get what you mean, but there are a lot of people on this forum who'd say a level 17 mage is a nigh unkillable superbeing, fully capable of destroying worlds.

    But he's not. Catch him in his sleep and he's useless. Antimagic field? Useless. There's all sorts of ways to beat up such a mage, even if the mage is prepared.

    Just like Batman. Some would mistakenly call him a god, but he's been beat before. Badly. Good, but in no way invincible.

    And two level 17 mages going at it? Who knows what will happen?

    V Who?

    Hm, it's difficult for me to say, not having played.

    Let's say two.

    (note that once everyone's made their initial selections, we start picking two units per turn.)

    Just remembered, mostly likely shouldn't have Khrima in final boss form, that one cracked the disk(Video Game world, he cracked the game disk with an attack) and so that form is way too powerful for this.

    Harbingers are pretty basic units for Tier 3 in the game. They are quite resilient and can do okay damage but are nothing game-changing and need large numbers if you want to win a battle with them.
