    Default Insanowar 2: Electric Boogaloo

    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, all people who reserved slots in the next game have until Monday, March 14 (Pacific Time) to claim them. After that, open registration.

    Can I sign-up now, so if there is room after the reservations then I'll have that space? If so... In, with Cake!

    Alternately, you could delegate a sub narrator to run a second game if there is that much interest.

    Hm. This does look like we're gonna need more than one thread.

    Tell you what--we'll do this by reservation seniority. Those that have reservations for this game get this thread, and if the other people on reservation want to start a new thread, they can do so.

    Murska is in.

    Darkcomet is in.

    Uncle Festy has the option of joining.

    Saint Nil, I forget--do you have a reservation?

    Also: Dr. Bath has the option of joining in, having a first-page reservation.

    FF Fanboy also had a reservation.

    So did Duos.

    And billtodamax

    And Shadowcaller

    Then Nil asked in.

    Then Recaiden asked to play again.

    Then Fin!

    Adding in Rutskarn and we have a nice not-round 11 people.

    Well looks like I'll be missing out, but not to worry I am about to start BackStabbery (which y'all better have joined ) anyway so this way my attention won't be divided. But I will however state this as an official first page reservation for the next iteration of Insanowar!

    Hm. It appears that Saint Nil posted his reservation a page after billtodamax.

    The latter player gets into the next match.

    Correct me if I've erred, but the roster looks like:

    Murska

    Darkcomet

    Uncle Festy

    Billtodamax

    FF fanboy

    Right, right, the roster was in no particular order.

    You're in this round.

    @Recaiden: You might be right, there--but Duos hasn't cashed in on his reservation.

    Hmm... I may up and help Rutskarn out by making a separate thread and running it for those who are waiting. If that's alright with him.
    It'll probably involve poking him a few times to ask him questions, but for the most part it seems mostly hands off anyways, unless disputes pop up.
