hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

Behold! Tournament of the Gold! ( I need a better title)

Entry Rules

Each guild can submit 1 or more teams of 5 players each although only one can be subject to a prize.

You don't have to be in said guild to participate and complete freelance teams can come to participate.

The 6th person on each team will be one of the neutral judges and cannot attack defend or do anything other then observe.

Combat Rules

No direct target hold spells like hypnotism greater command flesh to stone. UNLESS it has a frequent recurring save like hold person/monster. For each broken rule example of this a point will be deducted off the final point totals. The bards fascinate is an exception to this rule because of the ease of which it is broken. Spells like Web grease and firewall are also allowed yet otto's sphere of dancing is not due to the lack of a continuous save.

All AoE spells are allowed just do not hit a judge.

Killing a judge is a point deduction so watch for fire. Killing a judge in an obvious continous way is a disqualification of the player if it happens intentionally.

All summons are allowed with the exception of the troll which will bug occasionally yet still be allowed to attack it just cannot be harmed. Use of it is dis-allowed.

Registration Information


Entry Fee for this first event will be relative low stakes of 100,000 gold. Thus the majority of high levels can participate.

To register do one of three things. Reply here, Send me a forum PM or Send an in-game mail to Nerogodfire. You don't have to send me info that you have a full team you can send me just your class and level and if you are forming a team. Even if you aren't forming a team or can't get one please send a tell I will randomly shuffle all unteamed entries into teams or allow you to contact the other unteamed entries for forming your own group.

Prize Information

Top place team with get 50% of the money. Second place team will get 25% and third place team will get 10% the remaining   10% will also go to the top scorer from all rounds. The remaining 5% will go to be split among the judges.


Please everyone let me know what you think and any suggestions that would assist. I would also like any volenteers for judges.

Number of Entries so far.

4 teams.
1 Judge.
2 Unteamed entries.

Date
Not decided yet. It will be on a friday after enough teams are assembled.

Hey you guys on a side note I would really like to see you guys make a team. Bards are extremely effective in this type of combat and I would have no problem training you guys in effective combination attacks. A team of 2 Bards a Cleric and a 2 fighter types would be quite formidable. An arcane would make a great replacement for one of the bards.

I really hope to see you guys out there. I want to have this event weekly or Bi-weekly depending on how it goes.

Two comments:

Firstly I like the idea and would like to participate.  Pick a toon.

Secondly, why is hypno out, but the much more formidable bard ability allowed?

Hypno is broken just as easily.

Other then that, looks like a good system, just throwing that out for continuity.

Anywho, have a first date, or did I miss that?

The first event will be as soon as I get at least 6 teams. I curently have 3 counting the one i will eventually get together. The event will be the friday after those teams are available.

Current teams.

Registered Guild Teams.

Ironwolf's team lead by yours truly. (Still forming.)

Infamous Flaming Vagabonds team lead by Shinarel

Lilmustard's All Halfling team.


When the event goes live on the ddo forums. (Should be as soon as its approved.) I think that more teams will join up. Im also personally contacting a few guild leaders I know.

The reason Hypno is not in but Fascinate isn't is a balance issue.  First off Hypno is spammable. I could spam it and leave you unable to anything stopping by every now and again to refrest the timer. Although this is doable by a bard it requires skill. Also the bards have it as a primary class ability not as some spell they can pick up at any time. Another thing is the time it takes to cause each one to function. I can cast hypno in less then a second crippling the fighters of a team. Fascinate takes time and is risky as it makes you a very visable target. Unlike in a brawl you cant just start it and pop in when its almost done. You have to do it right there. Also while there clickies and things boosts and rages like that do not recharge. Thus fascinate also is like a limited number of shots magnum. Skills do recharge on death however. So in theory let the bard cast and leave him alone. As we all know bards are not the most "potent" melee fighters.

"So in theory let the bard cast and leave him alone. As we all know bards are not the most "potent" melee fighters."

Tell that to Prinstoni ;-)

But I'll accept your ruling on hypno and leave it at that.

Is there anyone else in the fellowship that is interested in this?

If not, perhaps I'll represent us through another team if they'll have me.

Would like to get our own team together if anyone is interested though, could invite others from OSR and friends like them.

Actually, I have a question. Is it all capped players, or is there a tier system for the different level ranges?

Unfortunatly due to twinking and various other unfair things it is in a way self restricting to 12-14.

You can technically join at any level but the real question is do you want to.

The reason I am not taking the time for teirs is because unlike sharks and minnows which you just set in one direction and say go this requires careful watching and teams of 5. Thus there wont be very many players left for low levels and the high levels will take most of the time and effort of the judges. There just isn't enough focus for it. I will however one this event gets running strong be running it multiple times and various other rules will apply. Such as low level day or mid level or high stakes or low stakes entry fee. Or maybe even a survivor mode. Its all limited by interest more then anything.
