    Yukon, don't worry about it too much, as long as it doesnt start at something like 3am for me (9pm est) then I'll be fine.

    If you wanna go for an evening start time I'll still attend, I wont be available until the evening anyways so would be more practical starting anywhere from 9pm-12am gmt (3-6pm est) and I'd be able to attend happy

    Someone asked me how I will be picking the roulette weapons on psn today. I'll be using an online randomizing program to mix up the list I provided and then I will just pick the first 6 weapons that it gives me.

    I have much less upgraded shields, so for the 4 shield items I drop I think they may be constant throughout the battles. I will have to work on upgrading more shields, unless everyone is fine with fighting with only +5 shields.

    EDIT: Okay, is 4 PM est more reasonable for people? I can do more than one tomorrow if some people are worried to miss out as I have the whole day to myself. silly

    EDIT 2: I would also like to add that the list of random weapons WILL include some offensive shields and bows/crossbows and magic devices. I will update the list to show these.

    Shields under work have been posted on the first page. I will be upgrading as many as I can to +11 today.

    If they're all Grass Crest, I guess we could use more shields... silly Who needs shields?!

    4pm sounds good.

    Haha, the problem is I didn't really switch up my shields on this character.. I always used black knight +5 until about a month ago then I switched to grass crest +14 so the rest of my shield "collection" is lacking. I am looking through my box to see if I touched anything other than what I posted here.. But atleast the first roulette event will be slim for shield picking.

    So it's going to be in Blight? And I just want to be more specific about how this is going to go:

    1. You summon two fighters, each go stand at opposite sides of the arena.
    2. You drop 6 weapons in the middle
    3. Both fighters each pick up one weapon (or two?) and go back to their sides
    4. Bow
    5. Fight on! At this point, you can drop your weapon and try your luck at something else in the middle

    I think it would be better in Sen's... it's kinda cramped in Blight to be swapping weapons from the equipment menu during a fight! But I'll respect your decision if you choose to keep it in Blight.

    Well I will have to run a NG++++ to get to sens as I am currently farming for chunks in the kiln... god its so slow! But Really the step between blight town and sens arean are so small.. Since its so near the event I will say we stay in blightown, but I will start a poll. And if most of you choose sens we will move there for the next event?

    I just don't want people to get totally mixed up as I changed all the detail the day before the event, we already switched the time 3 hours ahead haha.

    wait yukon you're saying we can pick up a shield too?

    I say just have them mixed in and only pick up one thing silly

    Also should be have a DWGR ban? I think it would make the event better seeing as be might have things we can only fat swing.

    Also seeing as the type of even it is, I think this should be in the Blighttown arena, also the circular style of the pit suits the event big grin

    Let's see how this first event goes. I don't really want to restrict the DWGR. If it appear to be a problem, if we have flipping havel smough hammers I will think of a way to limit it's use but I don't want to remove it entirely. I think people will be respectful of it, but lets see what happens in this event first.

    As for the shield/weapon thing. I will drop 2 piles

    1 pile will have 6 items, they can be weapons, magic casting, offensive shields, or bows. You can have one.

    the second pile will have only 4 shields, offensive and defensive, you can choose to pick from it or not.

    Also I think that being able to drop items ruins the whole 'roulette' ideal behind it. If you can choose your weapon I personally think it will be less good a spectacle, we wont get the david vs goliath type encounters that will make it fun

    I wasn't sure about that either, I was worried if that option was not avaliable some people would find the fights too one-sided. The idea behind picking up is that you are exposing yourself to your opponent, Maybe you got a artoria's great sword, and the other dueler got a +5 lightening iaito. In the tight space of the arena it would be VERY difficult to avoid them while dropping and equiping a new weapon.

    Also the weapon you drop to pick up could end up being worse. It could also add some interesting speed to the battle, as people would be encouraged to pressure their enemy to prevent item drops.

    Again, I don't think the arena in blight town will allow for many people to abuse this feature, but I don't want people to feel turned away from the roulettes because of its absence. If the majority of people are okay with the first pick up's being the final that is great and I will fix the "rules" accordingly.

    I guess we're just theorising at the moment, but personally Im gonna go with what I get first time, and only pick up one item too.

    Are you allowed to attack as soon as you're equipped if your opponent is messing around with the 2nd pile? or should we wait until they've done their 2nd pick or what?

    I think there should be a bow to signify the start of the battle first. If more people are okay with the first item being the final pick up I will just move the items up onto the ledge, so that fighters pick their weapons go down into the ring bow and then fight. I would like to give both members a chance to set up before starting the fight.. though you are right there is little punishment for those not choosing to pick up an offhand item... I will have to think about that to be honest.

    Here's what I propose... 2 piles: 6 weapons, 4 shields. You can pick any combination from either pile, but you can only take 2, and you can only hold a max of 2 at a time. If you want to make any substitutions, you can only do it after the fight has started, and you must drop one before picking up another.

    I'm not opposed to substitutions because they'll leave anyone attempting them very vulnerable. I'm not opposed to the DWGR either, but I won't be wearing it (even though I don't even need to do the math to know it would allow me to strengthen my build in every way).

    Thank you blaine, you wrote exactly what I wanted to say, but you did it with so few words! I need to learn something from you haha.

    If you don't mind I am going to copy-paste what you wrote about substitutions, because it was so well put.

    I also added a few new weapons/shield upgrades to the first post.

    Thank you emergence, I hope to see you tomorrow happy

    Does anyone know if the master key transfers between new games when you buy it from domnhall instead of getting it as a gift?

    I want to leave some areas open, but I picked black firebombs as my gift on my first character so I could get the demon great hammer Look Skyward

    Yukon, I did the same thing on my first character--damn you IGN for making me think the DGH was worth more than the masterkey! At least now you can buy the key, though.

    (Also, in regards to your earlier post, I'm totally fine with copy/ paste!)

    Lol, I was actually told by a friend that that was the best way to go, he also told me to kill laurtric to get the favour ring before he left firelink... /grumble

    I added about 5 new weapons as well! As for the vote, I have not cast one, but I will leave this vote up probably for a couple days. The first fight will be in blightown regardless of vote turn out. Just because I don't want people getting lost because of me changing the location so close to event day.
