More like trying to figure out what will work against/for me and what won't. I can't rightly say what I have and don't, because, well, it depends.

And what I've got NOW, well, you'll just have to see...

I am capable of making a map with some kind of terrain features and such, but I don't know how I would get it to you for manipulation, and again, it would be nothing fancy. If you get the map tool from rptools I could theoretically e-mail you a file with a map in it, but at that point you might be able to make something better anyway. I haven't had too much time to play with it.

We post slowly. Don't make too many actions or rolls in a post, because your opponent might have something to counteract it.

At a certain point, though, one doesn't have any AoOs left and one's immediate action is already burned. Then the active player has a freer hand.

OK, after not using Maptool for a long time, I didn't realize how much easier to use it's become. Particularly with regards to building an image library. This used to take days, if not weeks, of work to do properly. A well-built and organized image library was a really splendid thing to have.

Now it's only a few clicks away.

So, all, I'd appreciate it if you could post an image that I can make a token for your character for.

I can make maps. I'm a master of [code] tags. Won't be color, but they will be easily editable by all parties involved. Copy, paste, update location, then post. Easy and clean.

And arena games always need to go slowly like this. Take a partial turn describing your actions. Perhaps put them in a spoilerbutton. Then ask your foe what his response is to said action. Depending on his answer, you then proceed with more actions. And so on until your turn is completed. It will require at least some commitment to avoid meta-gaming. But it can be done, trust me.

Edit: Ninja'ed. Still willing to help with maps though.

Perhaps we'll do both: I'll craft a 'flavor' map, and we can also use a 'working' map to keep the action moving forward quickly.

I'll work up a proper character portrait, but I'll provide some generic art until then.

Edit: loaded to my private thread.

So, I think I'm the last one to the party, but I finally got my introduction up! And if I understand things correctly my first opponent is Ump?
*gulps audibly*
Oh dear...

We don't have a post from Jaruen yet, so you aren't completely last. And I don't think Lormador has announced who is fighting whom yet, so you might just get lucky and not have to face Ump at all.

Not quite done yet, but here's my initial sketch for Laeric.

Still need to do the paint by numbers. Not too intimidating, eh?

I just pulled up a picture of Drizzt Do'Urden :P

Image would have been served from http://www.picvault.info/images/537133877_Jak.jpg but is not HTTPS. For more information, please see IMG bbcode help.

I'm pretty sure the matches thread said the first round was first come first serve, I sort of assumed that meant poster number 1 vs. poster number 2, poster number 3 vs. number 4, etc.
Of course I could just be misinterpreting that.

Ah, perhaps. Though I had assumed it would be a bit more random. Or perhaps more purposeful?

he said first match goes to 1st 2 posters... after that it can be random or in order (but specifically not set in stone)
