Thread Topic: Forum Wars
We've all had them. A random troll (or simply someone ignorant) comes out of nowhere, and starts a huge forum war. Better known as... Flame wars.
The rules are quite simple.
1. There ARE NO character sheets. Your player is you. Ambiguously. Your character's name is your username. Your character's avatar is your profile pic.
2. 'Actions' are what we really do. Type. Your character can make many insulting threats (just don't go too far...), but no actual physical contact. Unless you give some fake 'personal info'. Fake stuff. Don't go telling every-body your e-mail and phone number and name and house lot or else I'll be trying to talk my way out of attempted murder with a judge.
3. You have 3 bars.
I - Stability
II - 'Creativity'
III - Reputation
IV - Finger Grace
Stability stands for how much trolling you can stand up to. If your character's Stability becomes depleted to 0, your character will have only two options. One would be to quit (I'll explain later), and the other would be to... Rage type. We all know what that means. Stability also adds to how well you can 'Get the Drop' on an opponent, meaning an unexpected critical hit.
'Creativity' stands for how much of a demoralizing post you can write up. If it's maxed, you can deal some heavy damage. If it's depleted, you'll begin making preschool 4-year-old appeals. And nobody wants that.
Reputation is really your experience bar. You gain Reputation by standing up to trolls. After a small while, others will judge you by how they, in reality, think you did. Get a high score from them, your rep increases. Get a negative score, your rep decreases.
Finger Grace is how fast you can click away, click in, and type.
There are 3 types of Trolls.
The Mentally Destructive: The Mentally Destructive has low Stability, but very high 'Creativity'.
The Slow: The Slow has a very high Stability, but can't really type worth a donkey, so they have equally low 'Creativity'.
The Equalizer: The Equalizer is relatively regular person. Moderate Stability, moderate 'Creativity'.
Then you have the attack types.
Rant: A Rant is a long, drawn-out piece of your mind. It takes a good bit of creativity, but does a great deal of Stability damage.
Insult: The Insult is more of a shorter version of the Rant, dealing moderate damage with little 'Creative' needs.
Whine: The Whine is what Dark_Shadow_0 does best. The Whine takes relatively little creativity, and does a high number on your opponent's Stability. How-ever, you're mostly insulting yourself, so it also does a number on your own Stability.
Those are the basics. I will also come up with hybrids of classes and attacks, but until then...
May the Blissful Ignorance (totally becoming an ability.) be with you!
(Disclaimer: Rude 'Insults', 'Rants', and 'Whines' are not actually allowed. If you do, your Reputation will decrease dramatically, until your kicked off. To use an ability, describe it in third-person, like this:
Smiley drew out a long Rant, damaging (Insert username here)'s Stability heavily.)
So. Sound good?
This actually looks kinda cool.
I have a question though. Will this be on this thread only or is this like, when a person does... say... a Rant, on the Lounge, would they post about it here?
Joker1001 Junior... Yeah. What she said.
(No pun is intended. And now I'm making you think dirty things. That's how reverse-psychology works.)
It'll only be here. To prevent... 'Accidents'.
Any-body want to join?
The Dude NoviceHoly damn, I forgot about this. Wanted to do this, honestly.
