    Haha, glad to see others are enjoying it.

    So we have decided all items are fair game, shields, magic items, etc. I'll compose a list of what I have sometime soon and post it up, if people want to make donations or suggestions from that I can work on getting those items in asap.

    Next big question, If we are going to set a date for this. What time is best for people? I know there is already FC on Saturday in the evenings. and I have heard some people asking for weekday FC's but what fits your schedules, in EST?

    Hmm, it would be interesting designing a build for this. Where to put the points and how much Vit do you sacrifice to do it?

    This idea is amazingly amazing, I honestly suck at PvP but I'm in for sure

    Edit: I suggest one set of armor allowed

    Hey rynoa, Do you mean a standard set everyone should have to wear? or that the duelest can only bring with him/her one set of armour to avoid them switching out pieces when they see their weapon?

    As it stands now I think the "rules" are
    Fighters come with pre-set armour, no switching upon arrival
    Fighters can come with all their rings, but cannot switch them around until the fight starts, meaning they will be under pressure if they want to try.
    Fighters do not bring shields or secondary weapons to the battle, everything other than rings and armour will be provided on spot.
    A fighter can drop his weapon and try to pick up a new one mid fight, but he can expect to be pressured by the other player.
    If a hostile red invades the fight will be paused until he is removed-- since I will have to pick up the dropped items-- and will resume with the same weapon drops.


    So far the drops are still a little blurry.
    I would like everyones opinion, Should more than 6 items be dropped per fight?
    say... 6 being weapons and 4 being shields and secondary magic casting items.

    Or should defensive and offensive weapons be mixed in a 6 item drop? This would mean you could end up sporting a piercing shield +14 against a moonlight greatsword +5, or a Pyro glove against Black knight great axe +5, it could get messy, so think this through before you answer. This would also mean no item in your off hand. If i drop 6 you can only take 1 at a time, if I drop 10 you can take one from weapon pile and one from devensive pile.

    As it stands now, I think giving everyone a week to work out the fine details will be enough, perhaps we could set the date for this tentatively as March 27th? or March 30th at around 5 EST? Let me know if you guys work if you prefer the weekend, etc. As it stands I don't want to be invading on FC time.

    As for limitations on spells.. I would prefer people did not stack them. But if you guys think its fair game to build yourself up for 9 WOGs and get stuck with a pyro flame thats fine. I just think it would be more interesting if you only had the basic number of casts.

    As for backstabbing, I think I am inclined to allow it. If you are fighting someone with a manserpent sword and you miss, you might get a chaos sword hilt to the back of your spine. I just don't wnat to see circling or fishing for those misses. The problem here is it's kind of highly tempting. But in such a case I think it sort of balances out the fight if we're going to go without weapon dmg brackets.

    Again, I will throw this out there that I probably won't summon you unless you tell me your PSN, since I would like to know who to contact for returned items. If you are too shy to come out on the forums you can send me a friend invite, my psn is SGTPIGEON, just make sure to put the forum title in the friend request or I might ignore it.

    I like this idea. I also think it would be cool if players could add to the dropped pile. If there is only 1 or 2 hosts there could be a wide variety of weapons adding to the roulette. I'd be down if I'm free, but as w/ FC, I'm usually on at weird times.

    Sure I would accept temporary donations the problem with dropping from phantoms is they know where and what they dropped so it would be more fair if the hosts dropped all items I think but pre roulette anyone who would like to throw a weapon down can contact me or volunteer to host as well. If the host redropped items it might be better but the dueler would still know 1 /6 of the weapons

    gag weapon suggestion, odd upgrade path broken straight swords (divine+2 fire+1 etc!)

    another gag weapon... smoughs hammer, almost no one will be able to wield it. and don't forget a gsoa tossed in occasionally! also try to toss in rarely seen weapons like clubs and pickaxes etc or maybe a server or mailbreaker...

    i may have to join in on this myself!

    I think it would really be a Russian Roulette if you had to be naked, and every one had the same set of rings (or none, whatever's agreed upon)

    Either way sounds awesome, I'm in.

    Yeesh, it seems like a few of you are atleast interested in hosting. I have been fiddling around and I think I should even be able to record the fights that I host, they are coming out pretty well.

    as for what naked said i don't know how I feel about everyone playing cracksouls...

    I mean I don't know how I feel about everyone playing naked! But Yarxov brought up a good idea of using the tearstone rings to display when everyone is near death, at which point they could be executed by the winning member after dropping their weapons.

    something I missed or just didnt read right was that he suggested un upgraded armour I think. So you could not use a +5 black knight set for example. Thing is there is no way for me to check this. So I still think its a better idea that people come dressed to impress and if they end up with smoughs or the great axe.. well hopefully they can manage that burden. But, if the majority of people are interested in naked fights we could do that too. I just think the battles would be too short, if the weapons are fully upgraded.

    Sorry, I meant one set of armor of the player choice and no switching.
    So if you choose an heavy armor you may pick up a weapon too heavy or you can choose a lighter armor and have less protection.
    I like the idea of 6 weapons and 4 shields in different piles. So you don't know what you'll end up with but at least you know you have 1 weapon and 1 shield. Actually after picking the weapon you can always choose NOT to pick a shield.

    I agree with the other "rules" you wrote happy
    I prefer weekends but I don't have any toon around level 120 right now (if that's the cap), not sure if I can level up one in one week (damn job...) :evil: So don't listen to me about the date -_-

    So... is there gonna be BS allowed in these fights? (considering some 'weapons' in these fights can't BS, not sure it's really fair)
