So the involvement of PbP characters seems to be evolving...

I like the idea of NOT allowing already existing and previously advanced PbP characters into the normal tournament. The long played characters would likely have a huge advantage.

There could be two tournaments. An Official Tournament and a "What if" Tournament. The Official Tournament would require all who wish to play to follow the standard character creation rules that Vong laid out and so all would be on relatively equal ground.

The "What if" Tournament would be a hypothetical thought experiment tournament (that would not have an effect on the 'official tournament' or the PbP characters in their other games) where PbP characters can go up against the Official Gladiators as well as Star Wars Legends (Luke, Chewbacca, Vader) using WEG stats for these Legends - i.e. Return of the Jedi Luke vs. Fluffy OR one of Skyler's Jedis verses New Hope Vader OR Rahullu vs. Chewbacca, etc etc. You would just have to choose which era stats you wanted to use for the Legend and find someone to play them against you Very Happy

Anyway, if someone wants a PbP character in the official tournament they can just make a basic creation level version of that character and he can be a part of the tourney...

Any thoughts on this?

Vong and others - What do you think about having a set reward per fight that can be augmented based on difficulty / demand for the fight. So all winners will get 5 CPs and 500 credits and all losers will get 2 CPs and 200 credits - then if you want to sweeten the deal a little you can add extra cash or CPs or even trophy items. Also I like the idea of hidden stats so there is no targeted killings...

So is this like a Street Fighter where you are back to full health for the next fight. And are these cage matches or is there running and hiding involved?

Hmmm I'd kinda assumed that's what was happening when we had the PbP characters challenging each other, so I guess that makes me for this idea Very Happy

Oh, I guess this tournament could have been meant strictly as a PbP character "What if" scenario - my bad. But since Vong specified that character creation was to be with the standard dice, that there were to be no house rules - just R&E rules, and he limited our equipment to a value of 2000 credits, it made me think that this was a new character tournament but PbP characters could challenge them. That is why I was suggesting two different arenas - one for PbP and hypotheticals and another one for the new tournament characters and their records vs. eachother.

Then again if no one is into the idea of two different tournaments I will just shut up. I just didn't think it would be fair for newer characters to go up against a full on Jedi that has been progressing in-game for years... But that could be kind of fun too I guess. There could be 2 on one or team matches too Smile
