Welcome to to the arena!!

ENTER IF YOU DARE


Do you have what it takes to become the best? Then try out your skills here and see if the dice will roll in your favour!

There is nothing more beautiful than combat within the arena, and no greater city to fight in than the great city of Alexandria! Here you and your party will be tested through combat to see who is the strongest in the city, maybe the country, possibly, the world!

This will be a continuous recruiting game, where I will announce how many people can join for this tournament. When the spots are filled, sorry, but you will have to wait until the next one is called! I plan to have many of these tournaments throughout of the year and I hope to make them exciting, fun and a good place for you to build characters that you may have not had a chance to make or play yet.

I am looking for 6 individuals to fight for the people! I will make it simple, the first six people to post interest in this thread will be accepted. No dice rolling in this thread! Experience wise, I do suggest that you know the basic rules of combat for fifth edition Dungeons and Dragons, but I will not turn anyone down, because I am making this so that everyone can have fun!

For the first tournament, we will be doing single elimination, you lose, unfortunately you are out of this one.

I will assign each team with a number and roll to see who will face who for the first round and then, well, then the games can begin, the winners will move on and those that are defeated can have a chance the next time I announce a tournament to be held.

Once you are in you will make 3 level 10 characters to fight in the arena for you. In the application page, we will then move into the game thread, which then you will make character sheets for. We will use the point buy system, or standard array, your choice there. You then each will get 1500 gp to use to equip your party, all weapons will be enchanted to be able hit spirits. For wizards and warlocks you can buy spells over your normal amount for 50 gp for each spell. We will then take the characters, place them in the tournament game thread, where you can complete the character sheet for the characters.

EDIT: Since we are waiting for approval of the game, make a general design for your character and get those character sheets worked on!

All you will need on this thread is:
Name:
Age:
Gender:
Race:
Class:
Background (Criminal, Acolyte, etc.)

Beginning of Character CreationFor this thread you will write out your characters like this:
Name:
Race:
Class:
Background:
Picture:

Each win, the player gets 300 gp to spend on the group. This would be used to restock potions, more spells, weapons, etc.

For now, I am only allowing the use of the PHB for races, classes, backgrounds, etc. Just wanting to keep things simple for the first one and will expand in the future! You can multi-class, I have no problem with that, and will allow rangers to use the UA revised ranger if they choose.

For you spellcasters out thereFor you spell casters out there, I am saying this right now. I have banned a number of spells that cannot be used for this type of arena. Here is the list of banned spells.
 

My reasoning is this, this is a three on three battle, which I want to be entertaining for the people reading and fun for the people playing. I don't want a fight to just be, charming one another, or using up spell slots to counter such spells or banishing someone, killing their team them ganging up on that one person. It just doesn't seem fun to me and will force people to make builds that cater to it or force you to build counter builds. Same with fireballs, they are fun and very useful in campaigns, but having your spell casters just use fireballs on each other all the time is not fun in my mind. I want variety, and I want the players to have fun making up interesting and fun characters.

I am also planning on making an OOC thread, for the crowd, which is the spectators that didn't make it into this tournament, you can chat there, cheer and choose mvps for each match.

I will also make an OOC thread for the fighters so they can talk without being drowned out by the other thread. This will be to ask questions, comment on moves

For the mechanics of how this is going to be done, I will have a thread for that.

So let's begin and may the crits be yours!

I was going to start putting my team together. Are we rolling for stats, point buy, or standard array?

I wish to stake an interest on populating the OOC thread for the sole purpose of heckling whichever team has the most magic-users on it.

We want blood. Fireballs and lightning bolts do not satisfy.

Good luck DM and players

Question: should we still post our characters here or is it better to keep them in the game thread itself?
