    Default Insanowar Six: The End of the Rhyme

    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.

    Rules subject to change.

    Currently, the game is fully reserved by:
    Darkcomet, Dirk Kris, DMTibernius, Night Surgeon, The Bookworm
    If one of them drops out before we start, other people can join.

    Isn't Seven a little much right now? I mean, 4,5,6 all just started, and we don't want a burnout like what happened to VUAX on the Homebrew subforum.

    How about this one? If so:

    The Bookworm
    deathslayer7
    Recaiden
    Night Surgeon
    Mustiado

    Army picking will begin as soon as either, or both of deathslayer and darkcomet confirm that they want to be in the game

    ...

    Fun fact.

    When I first threw out the Insanowar thread, it was lost in the Structured Games bureaucracy for about a week and a half. I assumed that either it had been deemed unworthy, or it had been so unpopular that it had arrived and had simply vanished.

    And we're already on thread six, because we're dealing with so much overflow? Jeebus.

    Yes. But since deathslayer seems to want to give away her spot to anyone she can, you're back in.

    True, and I hadn't claimed it yet because my internet died. I don't think it would be fair to kick someone for that.

    Okay. It was just that there were lots of people and everyone else with a reservation had already responded. But you have no control over internet problems.
    Darkcomet will take deathslayer's spot, and The Bookworm may now make his first pick.
