    The one I mentioned earlier, GM equipment style. I would very much appreciate having a crafter on hand.

    Date: January 7, 2009.
    Time: Wednesday, January 7, 2009. 8PM CST(Central standard)
    Place: Still working on that, can anyone let me use their area?

    Rules:
    No poison
    No disarm
    No pets
    No stealing
    No hiding
    No pre trapped boxes. If you feel like putting 40 tinker on to trap a box, more power to you!
    Only GM equipment will be used, this means weapons/armor
    LET ME CLARIFY. ONLY LEATHER ARMOR WILL BE ALLOWED. If it has anything but resists and durability, it will not be allowed. However weapons can be used from any wood/ore of your choice.
    No special Spellbooks
    Mages will be confined to 2/4 casting
    Dexers will not be allowed HCI, but EVERYONE CAN USE 2/4 CASTING
    No forms
    No enhanced bandages
    Each contestant will be given 30 potions to use between: GH, GC, and TR. No strength, explode, agility, parasitic, etc. Bandaids, armor, regs, weapons, and jewelry sets will be supplied by the PvPer. Before each fight each fighter will strip down, put all items into a bag to be inspected, and then asked to cast gate spell, so we know they are not hiding any items under their cursor. Packs will be empty at this time, all spellbooks will be given back. All 1/2 jewelry will be as close to plain 1/2 as possible. Sadly some items may have 1-2 fire resist, or 3LMC, etc, but don't try bringing a 2/4 set with 30DCI on it mages, it won't fly.

    So to clarify on supplies

    -Unlimited Regs
    -Unlimited Bandies
    -Unlimited arrows
    -30 chosen pots per player for the ENTIRE tournament. Not 30 per fight. Use them wisely.
    -5 Apples per contestant

    And the prize?

    5 million gold.

    I would like to add a 50k entry fee to the tournament, with every bit of that gold going to GOSH or some other worthy, new, needy guild. If you are interested in this tournament, please place your name on the thread. This will be done in a ladder, single elimination style.

    Good luck with the tournament, Speedy. An unsolicited word of advice? Follow through. No matter how may show up and build from that. *tips hat*

    The community needs more of this sort of thing. I hope it goes well.

    Specials will be allowed.

    And the reason thieves are not allowed is because in this sort of template, they would have an unfair advantage. And Whiskey of course that is your entire template, but this is supposed to be a duel, not an assasin tournament.

    So.. Are dexers allowed to wear 50 di on jewels or what is the limit ?

    Dexers will not be allowed jewelry, as mages will not be using any spell damage increase. You will have to rely on timing through your specials.

    another question pyramid style tournament I assume? How will we decide matches?

    Also FYI I have plenty of 1/2s with no "advantagous mods" mods on them.

    So when I come with a completely defensive template do we get to duel for hours on end and people get to re-reg?

    I assumed so, just wanted to make sure. Mage dueling minus posion is pretty pointless.

    I imagine he was talking about the skill posion on a mage. Deadly nox is to easy to posion trap.
    Im not really for potions in mage vs mage expecially with no lmc/regen
    i really expect to run through 300+ heal regs with the low end mana pool.

    My casting style isnt set up for the lack of low mana cost and regen.
    It should be fun regardless.

    I'm going to have to retract my statement of dexers being allowed the 2/4 casting. They will be able to utilize specials, that is plenty.

    Is bushido allowd? Is Chiv Allowed ? Can dexers us the 2/4 jewels with the chiv template.... Can we use mirror images in battles or ninjitsu/bushdio specials or it just spells books vs primary/secondary....

    If so a mage can then just disarm the dexxer and blast away pretty much? etc.etc.

    No 2/4 cast for dexers but they can use necro/chivalry. I would consider mirror image a form though. Bushido specials are allowed except for lightning strike due to the huge HCI bonus

    Wow, all the rules are teh sux. Make it more of a field fight...in a confined area. Bring your high end suits, weapons, skills. The winner is the last person standing. Poison, pots...whatever.

    Only rule...no looting.

    All these other rules should be left in Trammel...la

    If I wanted a field fight tournament I'd do just that. But I'm eliminating the fact that factioners have a very big advantage, spawn campers who AFKed with dragons in Ilsh have a big advantage, etc. Some of us played before whoever had the biggest stick won, Rico. ^^

    Because they could just run healing and then steal the weapons, then bandages, and kill the person by just about any means.

    So your allowing mages to use 2/4 but not necros or chiv templates? Why don't you just a hold a mage only tourny.

    I tested this on TC already with a friend. Dexers have a definitive advantage in this tourney.

    If someone wants to make a public vent, I'd be more than happy to do this. I am currently thinking I will just hold this at Wrong arena, and have certain "Body guards" to ensure the safety of viewers.

    all these rules make it so ********, why are you guys even trying to make this game competable again? Its then it so funny how opinions always bleed through into which styles are even allowed to compete, is a dexxer with lesser, regular, or greater poison really that scary? with 30 pots? just saying, have fun at those duels i wont be there.
