    Default Insanowar Central/Sign up Thread

    Welcome to Insanowar!

    This is the sign up thread. If you wish to be in the next incarnation if Insanowars, please place your reservation here.

    I will do my best to keep the schedule up to date.


    Da Rules:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1.) There are five players, each of which represent a commander of their army.

    2.) Each player takes turns choosing some powerful character, semi-powerful group of characters, or large mob of expendable non-characters from any sort of media. Examples: The TMNTs, a Dreadnought from 40K, a mob of kobolds.

    3.) When each player has 10 selections, the game begins.

    4.) A map will be provided showing the layout of the battlefield. Each person will have a base of operations with which they can wage war. Note that each base is about 2 turns away from each other.

    5.) A static turn order is established. In each turn, the player dictates what their troops are doing, as far as the opponent can see. Secret actions need not be reported (although it is good sportsmanship to give hints as to what your are planning).

    6.) When troops engage, the person whose turn the engagement took place on decides the outcome, which will usually NOT be all one way. If there is any friendly dispute (and the dispute WILL be friendly, or else), other players/playgrounders chime in with their opinions. If no consensus is reached, it's a 50/50 slaughter.

    7.) The winner is the one who wins.


    Da Guidelinez:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1.) You can't choose anyone TOO powerful. No gods, demigods, anything like that. Make it something that's about the same power level as the other troops on the field.

    2.) Don't be a jerk. The objective here is to have fun--frankly, who wins and who loses is pretty arbitrary anyway. This game is definitely straddling the line between Silly and Structured.

    3.) Respect Awesomeness. If a player is pulling off something that's just too awesome to believe, that should aid his victory.

    4.) Enjoy yourself. Seriously, guys.

    The reason I created this thread is because we currently have 4 Insanowar games going at the same time, with people wanting to play in the next game and requesting reservations for the next game in all four.

    Having just one place to request the next game just makes sense.

    I'm doing a big massive post with all the armies from the various wars and some pertinent data, sucn as most selected units and settings.

    It's going to take a while though... Curse you people for not shoving a complete army list into the first post, with listed source material.

    Should be up either later today, or tomorrow anyway. I'm taking a break for now.
    EDIT: OR later. Whatever...

    Here's a (poor-quality) map I made. Three guesses as to what it is.

    Spoiler
    Show

    Red/Blue areas: Bases. Same-colored ones are on a team.
    Black area: The Defender.
    Dark red areas in bases: Towers.
    All bases are surrounded by walls. Really tall walls (tall enough to obscure the towers) that have Doors of Sufficient Size to get anything you want out. You cannot burrow under the wall unless it is destroyed.
    The light blue areas are the water routes. They go under the Defender's walls and base and come out the other side. This may or may not be exploitable.
    Brown is land, because it turned black when I tried just leaving it white.
    The water routes are all the same size. The same goes for the towers. DC is just really bad at this.

    I did that in Inkscape (which I am only just getting to understand how to work) because I don't have any mapping programs.

    Of course, that is discounting the several RTS game mapmakers I have lying around... But those require a lot more detail. And they give me headaches.

    Also, so this post isn't really pointless, here's a suggestion for future games. Reveal the map before people pick. This should make sure no one messes up with a pick that wouldn't fit in the map.

    Considering it has come very close to that happening in the past with the original cavern map and air units. Luckily it was a really big cavern.

    That's... Pretty much what happened, actually. Only it was just assumed to be a big cave and no one actually said anything.

    I said something like, will my flying units even fit in this cave? They're pretty big.
    Sure, this place is *just big enough for flying units to be useful* meters per square.

    Looks like there are enough people for Insanowar 8 and 9, so I decided to come up with rhymes

    Insanowar 8 - Lets stay Great!

    Insanowar 8 - Some type of Grape

    Insanowar 8 - Weird 3rd Reich (Heh, Just Kidding)

    Insanowar 9 - Full of Pines!

    Insanowar 9 - Have a Nice Time!

    And for the theoretical Insanowar 10

    Insanowar 10 - This is a ton!
