    Default Insanowar 8: The Title Totally Isn't Late.

    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.

    Current Players:

    Conbar
    Tired N Drowzy
    ThePhantom
    Croverus
    Toasty

    I'm here. Forgot about this for a while. Sorry.

    For my powerful character I'm gonna pick: A space Marine Chaplain. Complete with Jump Pack, Bolt Pistol, Rosarius and Crozius Arcanum.

    Article one this guys. Complete with pics

    That's not too powerful, is it? I was gonna pick someone else when I realized he's kinda like a demi-god.

    Well generally speaking chaplains are essentially generals and army officers. They count as HQ units in 40k and have access to powerful weapons etc. A normal space marine is just a grunt so to speak.

    Of course the problem with space marines is that depending on the author in question they go from, "slightly better super human warriors. Cool leaders backed by dozens of elite soldiers," to, "super warriors of death. One squad can kill a million men and conquer an entire planet unaided."

    I'm leaning towards the 1st one with this guy. A leader of an elite, well trained, genetically altered and powerful fighting force. He's a hero and powerful but a good shot to a weak spot in his armor will still cripple him.

    Also, theres no limit on powerful characters, you could have a team made up of 10 powerful character or a team made up of grunts. Theres no "1 powerful character and 9 grunt squads"

    A Chaplain is most definitely not too powerful. I would in fact go so far as to say that you should give him a bodyguard. 4 Assault Marines maybe.

    Okay then. I'll have a Chaplain with 4 1st Squad marines as bodyguards. All armed with chainswords, bolt pistols, frag and krak grendes, as well as melta bombs.

    If you've been reading the central thread you'll know that Tired N' Drowzy has had to drop out. I think his replacement is Inavegt, whom I shall PM now.

    For my first pick, I'll be grabbing Norman Osborn of Marvel Comics. He'll be bringing along his classic costume, the glider, and the shoulder bag.

    Twenty Shingami? I dunno, I never watch Bleach, but based on wikipedia's description of them, that seems kinda overpowered.
