BP, as an unrelated note (since there are no other OOC threads in this forum right now), Andorax's CC3 is scheduled before my Mageduel; you might want to amend your schedule post somewhat. In addition, I have talked to BRR, and it seems like you'll be the mod that's responsible here regardless of who's running the tourney. We'll all be bugging you with truck load mod requests during tournements now

Like I wasn't already modding the tournaments on 3EBB?

And I was under the impression that CC3 was next. Did you and Andorax come to some kind of arangement to swap positions, or is my memory that bad?

So, word is over at 3EBB (where the really drawn out exibition matches are still going on) that CC3 has been postponed indefinately at the moment.

Also, as a player in one of his games, I know Darken is currently suffering from DM burnout. Does that mean that his Mage Duel Tournament is on hold too?

So, how is this going to effect the schedule? Are there other individuals willing to take up the sponsorship role?

Also, 3EBB survived. Since that's where these tournaments were originally housed, are we going to move them back there, or will they stay here?

I would LOVE to sponser one or the other of these tournys, but there is NO WAY I have enough experience as a DM to do it. The only suggestions I can make are either you run another gladiator tourny or run one of the others. Course, there's probably someone out there that is will to do it for you.

Trust me, running one of these tournaments is the best way to hone your DM skills.

Any one else out there in cyber space have a comment?

How much time per day would you estimate that you put into this BP? I'd tentatively be interested in running a tournament, but I want to make sure that I can muster up the time before I commit to it.

I have been thinking of it myself. But I currently do not have any kind of mapping software. Are there any good free ones out there?

Also, my list of source books are limited. I have the Core Books (PHB, DMB, MM), the Expanded Psionics book, the Complete books (CAdv, CArc, CDiv, CWar) and the SRD (of course). So I would probably have to limit everyone to those unless I can get my hands on other sources.

Also, what would people like to play? I was thinking of a Spell Duel contest, maybe limited to Arcane casters, but not sure yet. I could also do a Gladiator contest, but would prefer to leave that to BP.

I guess the main thing is the lack of mapping software.

As Lord Twig, I have a lack of mapping software and a way to get it online. I'm not nesecarily looking for something free, perse, but getting it online is where I think the most cost MIGHT be. If I can find an inexpensive way of getting the stuff online, then I would be able to spend more on the mapping software.

Found a tool online called AutoREALM. It looks pretty good considering it is free. I am just playing around with it to see how I would do an online combat. It would probably work just fine.

Here is a link: http://www.gryc.ws/autorealm.htm
or: http://autorealm.sourceforge.net/index.php

I tryed that, but with no kind of instruction manuel or tuturiol, I was completely lost, which doesn't happen often. And being completely lost, I uninstalled the thing....It is supposed to be good, however.

Well I have been playing around with the software some more, and I am pretty sure that I can make a decent go at online maps. I am using AutoRealm and Gimp. Both are free software, but they work pretty good. Here are some samples.



A 65' diameter arena.



Here is one with a couple wizards, two summoned creatures, a flaming sphere, a wall of fire and a wall of force.

I will try to get the resolution better. But I think they work well enough.

So would people be up for a spell duel?

I would base it on the rules in Complete Arcane, with a few modifications.

The rules suggest that it is only arcane casters that participate, and I could run it that way, but I am open to debate. In any case they should be able to counter a spell and be counterspelled.

I already have a few ideas for the rules as well. If there is enough interest I will start some discussion on it.

I have been up for it since first suggested over at 3EBB. And I'm still game.

If only autorealm had a manuel....

Resolution looks pretty good. Its about at the level I'd expect to come out of Campaign Cartographer (which is what I use).

A spell duel would be very interesting. I'm not as interested, personally, in conjurer's chess, but would like another caster based event. Then again, gladiators are awesome also.

Thanks in advance to whom ever will be running future events.

I'd be interested in joining a general (Read: Gladiator) game, but casters seem overclocked to me.

I just realized, I haven't done Gladiatorial Roleplaying since... 1st Ed.

So, I need some commitement. Lord Twig, will you run a tournament?

If not, I'll run something. I'm not sure what yet (I'll probably put it to a poll) but there will be another tournament.

I will run a tournament. I will post something later today on proposed rules and open it for discussion.

Keep in mind that I have a limited number of supplements. So we will be limited to Core, Complete, and SRD unless I can get my hands on some other books. I do have the Expanded Psionics Handbook as well, but don't think it will come into play.

As the sponsering party the rules of the tournament are entirely at your discretion, including allowed resources.

I do recommend getting feedback on the rules, but you'll find that most of the rules problems that come up won't appear until it becomes an issue during game play. Heck, you can see how many problems have appeared in the running of my tournament.

Anyway, I'll adjust the schedule to reflect the changes.

In an effort to learn more about psyonics specifically and about DMing in general (and because I think it'd be fun), I'd like to run a Psionic Tournament. Please add me to the list of upcoming events.

It has been so added. You're currently scheduled for after the Gladiator Tournament (which comes after the current Duel Arcana), which gives you some time to figure out your rules.

I'm volunteering to run a tournament after the other ones in the list are finished. The exact nature of the tournament is TBA.
