    The new game boils down into a game of ultimate bagball, and for those of you who may be playing the new starwars game the idea is adapted from huttball.

    Two teams, I figure 3 to 5 people per team, head into a dungeon to a set floor. From there they split up and go to opposite sides. When the ref yells Go in general chat each team rushes to the middle and then tries to drag a bagball to the oposing team's side. When one team makes it, they get a point and each team heads back to their sides. First team to two points wins.

    Contestants would come naked and be given whatever armor the host sees fit to provide (all depends on the dungeon and the host's level of cruelty) and 2 greater heal potions, a greater explosion, and a conflag potion (to clear monsters or just draw aggro). Aside from that contestants should have nothing aside from runebooks or spellbooks.

    Instead of having to drag the bagball back when a team scores I suggest having 4 premade bagballs all in the middle, and color coding them to tell which is the current "live" ball. Example: red = first active ball, orange = second and so on.

    Let me know what ya think. When I get home ill post some pics of possible arenas. Enjoy!

    Whys that? I havent read up on publish notes in ages. Also been busy or I would have posted a few example dungeon arena pics.

    Any suggestions?
     
  4. Shame and soon to be Wrong were both Revamped and upgraded, the creatures aren't easy anymore...these are no longer to be considered "Noobie" dungeons by any means. I figured eventually they'll find a way to make all the old school dungeons more appealing to the plays, but so far it's just Shame (Already Done) and Wrong (Will be with the next full shard production).
