Hello everybody, i wish to play a game. Not any game that is, but a text based game for you forum people. 

 

What is it like?

 

Well imagine Hunger Games, or any other Battle Royale kind of game that you have encountered before.

That's pretty much how it is going to be like. It's however based on my own creativity and everything is something i've 

come up with myself and wish to share. Also don't forget that this is tweaked to sci-fi setting.

 

Now how is it going to be set up?

 

It will be set up the way that people interested in participating will have to PM me to reserv a player slot, there will be a max of 10 players.

When it starts every player will get to make one move per day, and this is based on live time. The moves will consist of having your

character either travel around the map or attacking, sleeping, chasing gear or whatever more that is presented at the start. Players are also allowed to communicate with eachother in the comment log but it should be limited talk, i cannot however restrain people from talking too much but you get the point.

 

[The map can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/X13nI ]

 

Day one all participants will spawn in the Sector Zero, in this middle point sector there will be weapons, gear, items of different kinds. 

If you wish to grab an armored space suit or run away to another sector and hide is all up to the players themselves. 

I will be using a random number generator where i've put in possible events everyday and it will tell me if an event will happen that day

and if so, which kind. More importantly a random generator or dice roller will also be used for attempted attacks, everyone will have the 

same chances (accuracy) when trying to shoot another player.

 

EXAMPLE OF A HAPPENING: "Day 3 starts out with Player Y moving across the dangerous mountain tops at Sector A1 only to his horror face Player X waiting for him on the north side. Y Wants revenge for the equippment stolen from him Day 2 and blasts X in the chest with his Standard Issue Pistol for (damage) X twitches and turns around and dives down a cave in the mountain side 50 metres behind him. He has to spend his night there.

 

[Here is a quickly made doc listing the setup for this game: https://docs.google.com/document/d/12eJagXkPi_ubd1dcYZOeNf0g_AbOIa6FTgA3xzIJnbU/edit?usp=sharing]

(Note that damage, health and other things like that will not be revealed until it starts)

 

There will be rules for how you can move, for one you might have two movement points per day, you can use one to move from a sector to an adjacent one or hide the night in shelter, maybe attack another player. Or to two of these things. Some options will be presented to you as hidden features that you discover if you get into a situation with the right requirements.

 

So when would this game start?

 

Preferably i will fill all 10 participant slots and thus be able to decide on a date pretty fast, otherwise i'll give it a few days and then set a starting date with the participants there are.

 

I would like to reward the winner of this game as well, if anyone has any idea for this or want to help running this show feel free to PM me.

Yeah, it sure was. It ran for 28 days before completion 

 

https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/10809-du-battle-royale-forum-game/ if you want to read how it played out

 

Would have been crazy if we had started on the first day of February and ended on the last day
