    Respond to this thread with the R14 in-game names of yourself and a partner to be entered in the Brawl!

    This will be a flurry of fists and fun as we host New Britannia's first Tag Team Tournament. There won't be that much time to level up, so come as you are, but bring a partner! Teams of 2 will compete, interchanging which partner is currently fighting by "Tagging." Combatants are free to use all available weapons/skills (once you're dead you're out - Rez does not change this).
    • Once you die you are out of the fight - no participating after death
    • First team where both members die, loses
    • Only one competitor per team is allowed in the ring or in the Tag Zone at a time
      • Before the match, both contestants start in their team's Tag Zone. When the match starts, each team will have 3 seconds for a combatant to enter the ring
      • The competitor in the ring can jump into the Tag Zone after which their partner will have 3 seconds to enter the ring (same player cannot enter/leave Tag Zone unless the partner who should enter dies before entering the ring)
      • If a team only has one live player, that player must be in the ring. If the player in the ring dies (with a partner in the Tag Zone), the player in the Tag Zone has 3 seconds to enter the ring.
      • You cannot enter your opponent's Tag Zone, but you can target/attack the person(s) there.
      • You (or any of your summoned) cannot interfere in the battle (attack or heal) from the Tag Zone
      • Each team gets a maximum of 3 tags (which, put to full use, would allow each partner to enter the ring twice)
    • No Potions in the ring or in the Tag Zone
    • Advancing your character prior to the Brawl is allowed and encouraged. Learn some skills, gain some points!
    • All weapons and armor and skills* allowed
    • Elementals/Summons are allowed
    • The match starts with contestants in non-combat stance with no active buffs/summons
    *If your partner dies, resurrecting them does not allow them to rejoin the battle.

    Rules subject to change. Battle Master has final say on all rules and calls.

    Roster:
    1) Jakdaw Foxlauden + Ah Ghost/Gwyneth Foxlauden
    2) Gabriel Nightshadow + Amber Raine
    3) Player Killer + ??
    4) Net + Sole
    5) The Bear Tavern

    If I can find a #2, count me in. I must reclaim some shred of my dignity after being stomped at my last PvP event! :p

    Will there be a pre-event signup, or are you taking teams at the door?

    We usually take some last minute entries either at face value (if it helps even the brackets, etc) or as substitutes for no shows, but your best bet is to RSVP in this thread :)

    With the marrying bit? I'd think we need some muscle there to see that the two don't try to escape the bonding...
    *glares*
    What? Oh you meant the fighting bit?

    *whispers* as long as Gabriel doesn't find out... Oh, hmm, public forum... *runs* There is no spoon, there is no spoon, there is no spoon.
    Oh hi Hastur, what are you doing here? Nonono, it was my name not yours. Yes, yes, don't worry about it. Yes I know you are dissappointed you missed the fall. Well some apocalypse will happen, but right now it's just a wipe. Ok? Now go back to where the star's not right.

    Spoon runs right into Gabriel and ends up flat on his back :rolleyes: Gabriel glares at Spoon for a moment, but then smiles as he helps Spoon to his feet :)

    "I look forward to seeing you team up with my beloved Amber next time!", he laughs. "Perhaps you will last longer than I will :p"

    Request for clarification:

    You cannot interfere in the battle (attack or heal) from the Tag Zone

    My understanding is that I can't directly assist my teammate from the Tag Zone, be that through healing or buffing him/her, attacking our enemy, or some similar method.

    What about actions that affect me personally (ie - heals, buffs, re-summons)?

    My assumption is that this is allowed, esp. since you've allowed combatants to attack tagged-out enemies, provided the combatants remain outside the Tag Zone. That said, you know what assuming does to a guy... :)

    - - - - -
    As of right now, I've got a #2 in mind, but I'm waiting to hear back from him on his schedule for next week.

    While a player is in the Tag Zone, nothing you (or your summoned pets) do is allowed affect the ring. So you can heal, buff, stack glyphs, even summon so long as the effects stay within the Tag Zone.

    We plan to test, but if it turns out that summoned pets are hard to control in this release then we'll have to ban pets from the Tag Zone.

    Please sign up Jakdaw Foxlauden and A Ghost (Ah Ghost in-game).

    Due to RL scheduling, my 2nd may need to make a last-minute substitution. If that happens, then I'll be teaming with Gwyneth Foxlauden (my wife).

    Please let me know if there's any issues with this.

    The arena is available for inspection!

    Give it a walkthru before the Tournament tomorrow. There may be minor changes to the layout, but this is the arena that will be used for the Tag Team match:

    Location: Brave Coast southwest-most land lot (Loc: 233.3, 188.0, -571.3)

    Spectators all have front row views around the outside!
    Torches on three sides to help get bearings.

    Rugs differentiate the different Tag Zones for quick visual identification

    A good view of the arena from the Tag Zones so the waiting fighter is ready to attack when their partner jumps into the zone.

    Tournament is TODAY at 2PM CST.

    I've been advised that The Bear Tavern is fielding a team.

    We could use 3 more team entries to make an even 8 double elimination bracket!
