Jousting HQ

Requirements to Play: Two or more players, war tools and troops, and a written agreement (advisably submitted to the public) between the players detailing the rules/regulations of the joust. 

The Purpose: To play an exciting game without the pressures and stresses of war.

Basics: In this game you set up a "Jousting mach" (a staged war between two or more players that have agreed to each others terms and conditions) then you attack each other with the goals of:
a) learning from experience
b) gaining  loot
c) gaining XP points
d) gaining honor/glory
e) to have a good time
f) to settle a personal score that doesn't involve your alliance
g) any other personal reason

Rules of Engagement: You must agree with your jousting partner before beginning the joust, breaking of these conditions can lead to any punishment that the other player(s) sees fit. The two or more players competing in the joust agree on the terms of the joust on this thread or in the game through PM.

Everything else is self operated in this game, the details are made up by the two or more people jousting in the game and are followed throughout the joust until one of the players stops, becomes unable to joust, or calls foul play on another player. 

Good luck to everyone, and may the better man or woman win!

  • I am open for jousting once foreigners leave,

    My conditions: No attacks on other alliance members
                          No Outpost attacks

    I haven't got any RV's, so those are out of the question, and be sure too turn off your auto war and tell your alliance so we don't accidentally start a war. :smile:

  • Nope, alright, the Joust shall commence when the foreigners leave.

    Just a friendly recapitulation, I'll verify Terms and conditions so that there are no misunderstandings. :smile: 

    No attacks on other alliance members (I should have said "No alliance member intervention" too)
    No attacks on OP's
    No auto war

    Once again, RV's are out of the question.

    Thanks, this has been submitted for YOUR approval!

  • fair enough, alright, scratch out the "No OP's" rule.

  • Within one our i think, depends on the thread, the time of day, what day, and the people on the thread, but I think that the quickest time we have done it in is about an hour, not that I have timed it. All you need to do is post one pony pic and suddenly the whole world falls apart, would take about an hour for all relevant posts to be buried beneath yet another heated debate about your pony pics. Than I just jump on in cause, ya know, what the heck, why not?  :) Than I post some confusing philosophy that would probably make Beorn proud and then the thread is split into thee shifting portions, the people getting on your case for the ponies, me trying to explain my philosophy to people that clearly don't understand half the words that come out of my mouth, and the people trying to keep the thread on topic. (The people trying to keep it on topic always have the smallest portion!)

  • The Forum Joust Club (FJC) is for entertainment purposes only, it is not intended as a method of revenge, or war, those ordeals are too be settles in game r on personal threads. 

    The first official FJC match shall take place following the retreat of the foreigners, and will end following the return of the foreigners. . .

    Rules: 
    No alliance member intervention
    (No support from other alliance members and no attacking other alliance members)
    No RV attacks
    No auto war
    No attacks before or after the Joust

    Foul play has credibility for the Joust to be stopped, the "victim" has to provide proof of the foul play, and if the proof is approved, then the "victim" is able to "sentence" the foul player for their crimes, within reasonable boundaries, and the sentence will have to be approved by the forum Jousters before being put to use.

    Foul Play: In the (FJC), foul play is when the agreed upon rules of the joust are broken by one of the players, if they both break the rules, than it is out of the hands of the FJC, and will instead be settled privately between the two players.

    Standard FJC rules state that screenshots must be taken of the victorious battle reports and posted on all FJC threads. 

    The Joust ends when one of the players is unable to joust, the joust time limit is complete, or one of the players calls foul play and proves their credibility to the Forums.

    There will be no trash talking between the jousters and/or their supporters, only credentials (screenshots).

    Good luck to the jousters, and may the odds, ever be in your favor!

  • That gives me an idea! Maybe we should ask them why they don't like ponies.

    Just a thought.

    I don't want to steal your idea, but the other day this got me thinking about taking it further, and proposing a game mechanic for solo-on-solo jousts as something to officially do in game.

    If you think it's stupid, I'll just take it to the suggestions section and see how it fares.  Or you can if you want, if you think it has merit.  Any ideas?  My thoughts were:

    Two parties want to do a personal challenge, one submits the challenge to the other, and the other has to accept it.  Once that's done, there's a mandatory waiting period of 24 hours.  When that 24 hour waiting period is up, those two players get a personal bird that lasts for 12 hours, during which nobody else other than the two of you can hit you or support you (except your rvs like a normal bird situation).

    You cannot pop gates anywhere during this time.  You knock each other's castles and outposts around as much as you can.  The game tallies how many successful defeats or troops are killed between the two of you, and the winner gets a bonus of 50,000 coin, 30,000 additional glory, and 2 random level 5 gems.  The loser gets 25,000 coin and 15,000 glory.  To keep it somewhat special and prevent people from taking advantage by using it as free protection, or free glory etc., it can only be done once per week.

    Anyway, had fun thinking about it.

    I like the idea, it sounds a bit like a 1v1 version of Berimond, but a bit more advanced, since it was your Idea, you should be the one to showcase it on the suggestion section, not me or anyone else.

    that is what we are trying to do in this "jousting arena" just without over thinking I guess as you know MANATEE I tend to favor PVP and we are trying to encourage public participation here as well mostly to increase immersion on FORUM by correlating with the game lore  .... I am just tired of everyone getting upset about the burn when my troops land ( and calling in a high level hit to compensate or "warning" my PM to death and despair ) I do not like "farming"  and I really like posting battle reports on FORUM for every one of my PVP match victories for public review ......

  • Well, yes it is basically the same, but with a few add ons, for instance it gives you an automatic reward added to the loot and glory you earned from the attacks themselves, and the lvl 5 gems.

    So, since you have been brought back to the forums Cormyria, when would you like to set up our Jousting match?
