Tournament Rules

* Champion's Tournament * Contestants * CT Judges *

1. No power playing. Anything ruled power playing by the judges will lead to immediate disqualification.

2. The word of the judges is final.

3. You may submit up to three characters for the tournament, at the start of each round you will be required to state which character you are using.

4. One 'fan character' may be submitted, as long as it is not the only character you enter into the first round of the tournament - you must enter at least one 'original' character. By fan character we mean a character that would fit in to a world not created by you, but copyrighted terms such as Hogwarts, Jedi, X-Men or other recognisable words aren't allowed to appear in the character sheets.

5. Characters that the judges feel are copies of characters designed by published authors shall be removed, if it was your only character, you will be required to submit another one quickly, or you will be disqualified.

6. Genres can, and will be crossed. Don’t be surprised if your Sci-fi character ends up in a round with a high fantasy character.

7. Each round will last one week, after the allotted time the role-play pages will be locked, if you have particular trouble getting online that week, notify us and we’ll see what we can do.

8. Have fun.

The winner receives the coloured Octopus, participants receive the green Octopus badge:

2006-01-30 [iippo]: Easier to think this way: if you stab someone, you don't get to tell what happens at all. So, if the dagger does break (assume you have a skin of steel or summat), you need to describe it, because the other person can't. You are allowed to break other people's equipment, but if you do it impossibly like "your dagger scratches the side of my head and its blade falls off", then it's just stupid playing.

2006-01-30 [Elisha Kelly]: kewl... I was thinking more along the lines of a dagger hitting a bone and breaking the tip or something... :P

2006-01-30 [iippo]: As long as it's fairly sensible, you decide what happens when you are stabbed.

2006-01-30 [Elisha Kelly]: kewl... i wasna sure... new to the whole roleplaying thing! :D

2006-01-30 [NamelessMerc]: *Enters Jackie Chan Adventures mode* One moooOOOooore thing!!! What if the loser in each round feels unfairly treated? o.0; Is there gonna be a system of appeal? I was just thinking for the guy who run's Bob's Diner, he'll probably complain if some judges are in his rounds.

2006-01-30 [SilverFire]: If people don't want specific people juding them, they can say something before hand, and we'll work around it, but we're not telling them who'se judging what anyway. Plus, the judges will be working in pairs from round one, so it'll be hard for one of them to decide to unfairly penalise a player.

2006-01-30 [deus-ex-machina]: I love Uncle. One moooOOOOOooore thing! I'm not going to vote in any one's favour, so if people accuse me of dumping on you, they'll be going down the wrong path... but feel free to tell Silvie and iippo you don't want me judging your bios.

2006-01-30 [iippo]: And the rule "judges word is final" is a pretty clear clue that there is no appeal; just as there is no appealing thing in other official contests.

2006-02-12 [SilverFire]: Arrite people, last chance to GET RID OF THOSE "UNFINISHED" SIGNS! If you don't remove it before the deadline, your bio won't be judged! Even if you’ve finished your bio, and just not removed the ‘unfinished’ notice, so check that you have!

2006-02-12 [SilverFire]: You shouldn't have said anything you would need to apologise for. End of story. There's no reason to insult if you're not even sure there's anything to insult.

2006-04-26 [PredatorX]: Question... how many characters are advancing to the next round?

2006-04-26 [SilverFire]: Answer: Wait and find out.

2006-04-26 [deus-ex-machina]: There is no set limit - it all depends on how many pass the judging.

2006-04-29 [Lothuriel]: Has this contest been put on hold?

2006-04-29 [Kai Crewger]: still just judging, i believe

2006-04-29 [iippo]: The contest is indeed very much active still, as the judges are doing their work. We know it's taking long, and everyone just needs to take it easy and be patient.

2006-04-29 [NamelessMerc]: We are doing, we are being very patient *Holds up 312th sketch of Prince of Persia* We're all staying very busy. *Twitch*

2006-04-29 [Lothuriel]: I was simply curious.

2006-04-29 [SilverFire]: And you simply got an answer. :) And we all lived happily ever after. W00t!

2006-04-30 [iippo]: This still not a chat-page ^_^;

2006-05-01 [SilverFire]: Shut up? ;)
