Arena Tournament?
« on: December 01, 2012, 07:15:33 pm »
Hey all,

I was just thinking about putting on a little quests in the Vehl Arena. A fighting tournament, with level brackets. Those would be New Adventurer (1-15), Veteran (15-20), and if more show up, perhaps another category, (21 and up). There would be one on one duels for each bracket, as well as a battle royal for each bracket. At the end the New Adventurer champion would try to take on the Veteran champion, but the Veteran champion would have limitations to the equipment, weapons, and armor he or she could use, for both the top three of each battle royal champions, and the winner of each one on one duel would also fight, with the Veteran having the same limitations as those in the battle royal. Perhaps with some food vendors and weapon venders, and with special weapons as rewards for victory? I would be willing to run it, but perhaps with some GM assistance. Just throwing this idea out there to see how many would turn up, and if it would be a good quest or a flop.

Just a though :)

I am not deep enough into the mechanics of NWN to help you with writing out rules for the tournament (and you'll need them), but it's a good idea.

Things become messy with a 21+. Perhaps the characters that have reached a status of notoriety for their skills may be honoured guests to offer critique to contestants. That leaves the New heroes and veteran heroes (or villains) to battle it out while the epics rest on their laurels and watch the battles. I suppose they can still challenge one another for leisure or to settle scores but that might add some flavoring to it more so than just adding an additional tier. It also means the combatents can settle their own rules and change the pace.

PnP used to run a very cool Crossed Blades Arena Tournament. These things usually require a bit of lightheartedness and structure to ensure nobody gets their feelings hurt.

Hmmmm, Think I have a former arena combatant that wouldn't mind getting back into the arena fights.

Just noticed we're not answering Teo's question (except drako which is why I noticed).

I would attend if possible, leaving it open as to what character and tier I'd enter.

I'd try to attend depending on time.

My characters depending on level ranges are able to attend depending on time for sure :)

I have three that would do nicely depending on the times.

Okay, it looks like there will be a few people there, enough to make it worthwhile, hopeful. I am currently looking at a date to do this quest on, perhaps a Saturday night, but I need to check my schedule. I'll post here again when I get an idea, and get a calendar event going.

Thanks,
Teo
