             WARZONE: The Battle of All Things

[floatright]Demonstration App:
A Terrible Storm Approaches

You can hear it thundering across the sky, and it's not just your upstairs neighbours dropping more bowing balls onto the floor. No, just as it did before, the drums of war thunder once again (and everyone is invited). Although we recently determined the winner of the ultimate fight of the century, pedants from the internet have arrived to inform us that a century starts and ends at "20" in the procession. As it is presently 2021, that means we have guilt-free permission to subject more hypothetical beings to unreasonable brutality.

Starting now and lasting until August 21, I'm accepting character applications. What kind of characters might you ask? Oh...whatever. Whatever character you think is good and interesting to submit. It's hard to imagine a character that might be rejected. It's all about what YOU want to see in the the upcoming showdown: The Battle of All Things. Want to see Commander Puretide square off against Elon Musk? Done. How about Obi-Wan Kenobi versus An Actual Hurricane. We can make it happen.

Each character gets 25 points. Use these points to fill out your character's stats to develop a better concept of their strengths and weaknesses. Not every stat will make sense for every situation, but we'll do our best. You may put no more than 10 points into a stat and all stat points must be spent. Stats are as follows:

  • Strength: How physically strong your character is. Useful if you need something big put somewhere else.
  • Agility: How fast someone is able to move and/or how nimble they are.
  • Wits: The intelligence and/or the cunning of your character.
  • Spirit: The character's general life, initiative, or endurance. For undead or elemental characters, this stat is interpreted literally as their supernatural manifestation.

  • Magic: How powerful the character is at abilities that could be considered arcane in their respective universe.
  • Affinity: The general expertise with which the character wields their chosen physical weapon.
  • Command: The ability to summon aid and perform combat through the use of proxies, such as a military or robotic allies.
  • Luck: It's not clear what the character is, does, or is good at, but things just seem to work out for them.

In the end, we will add up all of the stat points and that sum becomes the character's general combat potential!

"But Luca, if we're required to spend all the skill points and they're all worth 1 each, doesn't that mean all characters have the same combat potential?"

Yes, you have grasped the very nature of The Battle of All Things. Every character has equal potential to win in a match-up, no matter how unlikely it is. Could an orange defeat Elizabeth the Second, where ever object bearing her likeness is an additional combatant? Yes, absolutely. The purpose of the stat points is for flavour text, so you are 100% freed up to make whatever creative ideas you have as your character submission without worrying about a meta.

Application Rules:

  • Turn in an application which has your character's info, all fields required.
  • Spend all 25 skill points in your desired fields, put zeros in unwanted stats. No more than 10 points per stat.
  • Give an energy colour for the character. Could be something as simple as "red" or it could be a hex code.
  • Include some sparknotes about your character. What do they do, what are they like, what are their greatest tools or abilities?
  • You must include some kind of image for the character. Ideally square, or it will be cropped to be square. Use the forum attachment feature if you do not have a URL to your image.

You may turn in up to two characters and have approximately one month to do so. If you have a discord account, make sure that it is posted in your forum profile if you would like a stimulus cheque. Each application (up to two) will net you a :planet: 5,000 payment out of the gate when this event starts next month.

The more interesting your character selection is, the better an event we will have. Just try to pick something recognisable. Post applications or questions in this thread, more details on The Battle of All Things next month when it's go time. May the best character win :hyper:
