The Scorekeeper now gives you the rules to this game. If you have any comments about the rules or during a game, please PM them to the scorekeeper. This will avoid any possibility of missing them within the numerous pages of posts that will follow.

The current scorekeeper is: MoonZar

The Game Rules
  1. Think of a rope marked with numbers. The rope starts at 500.
  2. Everyone who replies adds or subtracts 1 from the number. These are often called "Tugs"
  3. Those who add are known as the Uppers, and they win by getting the number up to 1000.
  4. Those who subtract are known as the Downers, and they win by getting the number down to 0.
  5. For your first post of any game thread, you must specify that you are either an Upper or a Downer. If you "switch sides" mid-game, you must also specify that you are now an Upper or a Downer. This is so no one "corrects the math" for you incorrectly during high volume game hours.
  6. Players are responsible for checking the current count before posting
  7. Players must wait for a period of time specified at the beginning of each Tug of War and wait for at least one other player to post before posting again.
  8. The person making the final "Tug" should PM the scorekeeper so that a new Tug of War thread can be created.

Posting Format:
Please keep the first line of your post the new tug value, and only the new tug value, to help avoid confusion. If you are ninja'd, please strike out your old value, and place the corrected tug value next to it.

Example555 556

The Downers are really tugging hard this match, but the Uppers aren't going to give up easily!

  1. As with everywhere else on RPGX, players are expected to be respectful and supportive of each other, regardless of team.
  2. Unsportsmanlike conduct can, and will, be assessed a numeric penalty to the score befitting the transgression against whichever team violated the rules of conduct. Violations should be PMed to the scorekeeper.
  3. Use the Report Post button to privately register (to the Site Moderators and scorekeeper) a complaint for things such as inflammatory language, or other site rules violations. Please allow the staff to handle these issues, and do not add to the situation.
  4. Due to the sheer number of Tug of War posts, it is one of the single most taxing areas of the site. Please consider contributing to some of RPGX's other community initiatives, such as the PotM & PotY, Welcoming New Members, Becoming a Community Supporter, or contributing an article to Explosive Runes, to help out around the site. If you would like other ideas on how to pitch in, please feel free to contact the scorekeeper.
  5. Directives from the scorekeeper are official, binding, and always in blue. No player should use blue text within their posts.

  1. RPGX Members may reach out to one and only one other RPGX Member per Tug of War [Thread], across any medium (#2).
    A single invitation in a shared medium such as a game's OOC thread is acceptable, keeping rule #5 in mind.
  2. A link within your signature does not count against your single recruitment invitation restriction.
  3. If an RPGX Member states that they are not interested, there should be no further recruitment efforts.
  4. Brand new RPGX Members may not be PMed with the sole intent of recruiting them.
  5. Recruitment efforts in other areas of the site should honor the intent of said area first and foremost. For example, a post in the New Member Introductions area should be individualized, primarily about welcoming new members, and not solely a recruitment effort.
  6. Recruitment should be done for the game itself, and not for one particular side or another.
  7. Team branded avatars are acceptable.
  8. Violations of the recruitment rules will result in an infraction for non commercial spam at a minimum.
  9. The scorekeeper may additionally level a temporary, or potentially, permanent ban from all current and future ToWs.

Learning mutants and masterminds!
