    Default Insano 7- Stairway to Heaven

    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.

    People make your reservated claims now, and most importantly. Play fair!

    To be renamed Insanowar Seven, since we already have a five.

    I think ds7 has a slot.

    Is it against the rules to play in two Insanowars at the same time? LOL

    Yes Talic, it's against the most unspoken holy law of Insanowar, and you will be submitted to the Trials of Unspeakable doom for even considering it.

    Would those be the ones involving cheddar cheese and a hot waffle iron?

    Or the ones with Flaming Streudel and a car battery?

    Well the problem with anyone else using that map is that each of us designed our own terrain. It probably isn't going to be a fair map if the terrain is just assigned.
