T40: Hellenic Wars (in Contests)


Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 26 2009 12:14 AM EDT

This tournament will begin on the 31st, and end on the 15th.


395 BC, the Spartan hegemony is weak, the city states of Greece rise to face Sparta in battle.

Athens, Thebes, and Corinth must now face the mythical armies of Sparta for control of Greece.



How it works:
Players must apply to a faction to play in, Athens, Thebes, Corinth, or Sparta. I will make the final decision as to who plays for what faction.

Rules:

Sparta:
The Spartans are equipped with the finest weapons and armors, and as such have no restrictions. They may use (lesser) tattoos, and any DD spell other than decay. They will start with $1,000,000 each. Spartan teams must be no more than two minions.

Athens:
The Athenians may unlock all rare ranged weapons, but may not use any rare melee weapons. They may use any armors, except tattoos. They may only use Fireball and Magic Missile for DD spells. Athenian teams must be four minions.

Thebes:
The Thebans are a rising power, built upon the hoplite. They may unlock any rare melee weapon, decay, shocking grasp, and all armors except tattoos. They may not use any rare ranged weapons. Theban teams may be any minion size.

Corinth:
Corinth is the closest city to Sparta, and is used to combat with the best. Corinthians may use any armor, including lesser tattoos. They may unlock all melee and ranged weapons. They may use any DD spell except for decay. Corinthian teams must be more than two minions.


All factions may use any EO/ED spells they want.

The tiers

Melee weapons:

Tier 1: All non-rares. Free for Athens. Free for Thebes. 100k per person for Corinth.

Tier 2: Katana, Elven Stiletto, Executioner's Sword. 200k per person for Thebes. 100k per person for Corinth.

Tier 3: Vorpal Blade, BoTH, ELS. 500k per person for Thebes. 400k per person for Corinth.

Tier 4: All Melee Weapons. 1m per person for Thebes. 800k per person for Corinth.


Ranged weapons:

Tier 1: All non-rares. Free for Athens. Free for Thebes. 100k for Corinth.

Tier 2: All rare crossbows. 300k per person for Athens. 400k per person for Corinth

Tier 3: All rare slings. 600k per person for Athens. 700k per person for Corinth.

Tier 4: All rare bows. 1m per person for Athens. 1.5m per person for Corinth.




How do you play?

The map will be posted soon. Every day, you will be able to take a certain amount of actions depending on how many available team-mates you have. The leader of a faction must chatmail me their actions with the following template:

[Tournament Character name] moves to [Location] and does [Action].

There is no definitive list of actions, you can try anything! You can spy, assassinate, ambush, battle, siege, build a navy, help allies, declare war, pillage...anything!

In addition, once per day, you may request assistance from the Gods [Me!] You may ask me anything! My response may or may not be helpful, I may give you a riddle or I may answer your question directly. This question can be about anything you want. Some things are, however, beyond the scope of an oracle of the Gods.

Also, you may use my godly powers to send allies money, or if you want, to bribe your enemies.

Deals may be made in private or in public, you do not have to tell me about any secret alliances.

When choosing an action that specifically targets a member of another faction, you may be issued a challenge. Every teammate present for the challenge will have to defeat every defending faction member within 3 squares, or two diagonal squares of the location of the challenge.

There is a small percent chance, different for every faction, that a even a lost challenge can turn into a heroic victory. In the event of a heroic victory, the loser has all troops involved in the challenge sent back to their city, and all troops in the winners sphere of influence are sent to the border of their nearest ally.


Movement on the map
Any player can move one space on the map. You can move with stealth or simply march through a territory, whatever you want. Every day I will send each faction leader a list of the locations of their members. When moving players via navy, you can move any amount of players two spaces per turn.

Faction Relations
Your faction will have both internal and external faction relations. Your external faction relations must be posted and updated daily. Internal relations must be chatmailed to me. Internal relations determine whether or not you will attempt to intercept forces moving through your own area of influence.


How to win
There is no set win condition, everything you do comes into account when I decide the winner. The winner can be a single faction, or an alliance. I will choose two players not involved in the tournament to deliberate with me on who the winning faction was.

Prizes

$40 million, split evenly with all winning faction members. Faction leaders will earn 1.5x what a normal member will make.



When posting here, please post your application to a faction in the following format:

I, [Username], request to fight for [Faction Name].

If you are interested in being a faction leader, post your application and then chatmail or PM me.



Field Values:
A set of fields highlighted in purple indicates a trade route, only control of an entire trade route will yield any daily income. All income may be divided as seen fit by faction leaders.

Some questions and answers:

Q) Are we able to eliminate players from the tourney? What happens if we win a battle?

A) If you win a battle the losing players are sent to their capital city, and unable to be moved for 2 days. They may participate in defensive battles during this time.


Q) If we raid other factions land, will we get money from them?

A) Depending on how the raid goes, yes, you can get money from them. The money will be removed evenly from all of their characters and distributed however the faction leader sees fit.


Q) What kinds of moves can we make?

A) Anything, be as specific as you want. The more specific, the easier it is for me to implement and balance.


Q) Can we build defenses to allow us to have a better chance of winning a battle?

A) Yes, all defenses will be temporary, or require upkeep to remain on the battle map. They will add a percent chance to trigger a heroic victory.


Q) If we capture another factions capital, are they eliminated?

A) No, they will be weakened (Their favor with the Gods will fall significantly) and they will either become a nomadic tribe, or live out of an allies capital.


Q) Can we purchase tier 2 weapons without unlocking them?

A) Yes, but you cannot use them.


Q) Can we enslave players?

A) No.


Q) Where do all my team members start out?

Soul Eater August 2 2009 4:50 AM EDT

How do we obtain, lesser tats and Rare Weapons?

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 2 2009 4:53 AM EDT

Buying them in Auctions or camping them in the store. Corinth can use the lesser tats but can't use rare weapons.

Soul Eater August 2 2009 1:06 PM EDT

If I am reading this right then this means "They may unlock all melee and ranged weapons." Which includes rare weapons.

Thank you Slayer for your attempt to make this tourney feasible.

A day or two will be required to ascertain the winners. Unfortunately, a couple factors made this turn out not exactly as I had wished (although somewhat historically accurate!).

in other words, you'll let everyone win a bit?

Great tourney Slayer, probably the most fun I've had playing the actual game of CB since the Zombie tourney. In the future I recommend another tourney like this that lasts a month or so. It would be the best tourney ever!!!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 20 2009 6:28 PM EDT

that's why you need a co-tourney admin to help...

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 August 24 2009 9:20 PM EDT

Verifex was kind enough to act as a neutral third party and judge along with me. The scoring was based on a 10 point total per day, each faction could earn 1-10 points per day based on certain actions. Historical accuracy, planning, diplomatic actions, and the "favor of the gods" factored into this score. The results were closer than I had thought they would be...

In a tie for first place with 153 points each, Sparta and Thebes.
In second place with 150 points, Corinth.
In third place with 146 points, Athens.

If you would like a breakdown of where these points came from, you can ask me, but these scores are final.

QBRanger August 24 2009 10:01 PM EDT

Slayer,

Even though I did not get the chance to play, this tourney was outstanding.

Thanks for running it.

Nice tournament.
Had a lot of fun, however it did get a bit much near the end with no cap.

Thanks!
