Gryffin Warrior of DF & RP

Welcome, Fountain Participants!
This thread will be your Out-Of-Context forum for the competitors of the Fountain Arena to discuss tactics, collaborations, and plots, as well as to ask questions of your fellow combatants and to provide any additional details necessary to clarify your character or your actions. It should also be used for necessary communications with the Director in requesting extensions. As a reminder, you are required to post every 4 days. While I will do my best to provide 24 hour warnings, please do not rely on these. I must be informed in advance if an extension is needed.

Each of the combatants in this arena will be placed at an equidistant starting point. The order in which you are listed in the roster is the relative location you enter the arena in, with the first competitor entering at the North (top) of the arena and moving clockwise around the edge of the arena. Alternatively, you can view this as the competitor listed above you will be on your right and the competitor listed below you will enter in on your left. All contestants are assumed to enter roughly at the same time, regardless of posting order.

Feel free to ask me questions within this thread, via PM, or via the AEF RP Discord Server if you have any details you would like clarified. Our Discord Server can be found here.

This was the music inspiration for Fountain: Moonlight. It was also the winning vote in the arena OST poll!

The Roster
Milo, created by Sylphe!
Ooaye, created by Riprose123! Withdrawn
Mizzleteran the 37th, created by nield!
Cassius Pallu, created by Synthe_!
Jacklin Elizabeth Smoke, created by Chewy905!
viterbi04, created by Anastira!

In addition, I will be editing in any questions that may be useful for all combatants to read. Beginning with:

What are the dimensions of the arena?
Most Paragon Phase arenas share a similar construction when it comes to the dimensions. From the geometric center it is 65 feet (19.8 meters) of terrain until reaching some sort of barrier - a wall or a lethal hazard in most cases. Entrance ways vary by arena in terms of design, but consist of eight equidistant points starting from cardinal North. Fountain has no ceiling, although the surrounding walls are 20 feet (6.1 meters) high.

But we have fewer than 8 in the arena!
While arenas are designed with a maximum occupancy of eight contestants, we'd rather let people spread out and have more arena variety than to crowd everyone into a single arena. Any locations after the last person on the roster is placed would be considered vacant, and their entrances will remain closed.

Do the gates out of the arena remain open?
Yes, and the waterfalls originally blocking them are dried up. If you exit the arena, it will be considered forfeiting the fight.

Are we standing in water?
Yes. At the edges of the arena the pool is barely an inch (2.54 cm) deep, and it deepens to about a foot (0.3 meters) of water in the very center.

Wait - you pulled the moon down into Fountain?
Basically! (Although I shrunk it some too…) Fountain’s moon is 10 feet (3.0 meters) in diameter, floats so that the bottom curve is about 10 feet (3.0 meters) above the surface of the pool, and is both immovable and indestructible. There is a faint gravitational tug in the arena towards the moon - your average person will feel the tug but not be knocked off balance without help from the other competitors, but projectiles and smaller physical objects will likely veer off course.

We’re getting judged now right? What are you looking for?
Each Director has their own writing elements that they look for and their own methods for selecting the Paragons (and, later, the Champion). I do not use an official point scoring system of any kind, but I do look at seven key criteria. In no particular order, they are:
    Combat Activity (Use of Abilities, Reasonable Physical Actions, Pacing of Actions)
    Character Interactions (Accounting for Opponent Actions, Dialog, Environmental Awareness/Acknowledgement)
    Consistency (Writing Style, Mana/Stamina Usage, Cross-Post Awareness for Injuries/Actions/etc.)
    Storytelling (Complimenting the Action, Relevancy to Combat, General Worldbuilding)
    Character Personality (Growth/Development, Passion/Emotion. Show me why they want to win).
    Technical Writing Ability
    General Creativity & Uniqueness

Looking forward to working with all of you! Just to make sure; these maps are meant to be guidelines for coordinating posts. Your posts should contain the necessary information regardless. They are not official (though Star did check them for me!) They are interactable as well, allowing you to move and adjust your icon. Please, only move your icon after you make your official post as to avoid confusion.

Link to Fountain's map!

Riprose123 has reached out asking to withdraw due to unforeseen circumstances. As such, Ooaye will not be entering the arena, and his entrance will be left empty.

Anyone who is impacted by this and needs to rework a post, please reach out to me.

@Sylphe - Extension granted. Your new deadline is at 4:58am on Friday, August 6th. You have two 12 hour extensions (or one 24 hour extension) remaining. Keep in mind that this extension does put your timer behind Anastira's, so make sure you're coordinating with her if the two of you are collaborating still.

Everything considering Mizzleteran and his actions in my current post was collabed with nield.

Attention to Fountain, please.

A large part of this competition is being willing to work with other writers, of being willing to adjust your ideas to allow others to showcase theirs, and then using those ideas to better showcase your own. I have seen a lot of this in Fountain (and all the arenas) this year, which I think is wonderful.

An equally large part of this is the collaboration extending to the in character interactions - the give and take of blows; the allowing for another to dominate an exchange only to come back more powerful, more desperate and dominate the next one; the discovery of allowing the characters to fully experiment and show themselves off from personality, to combat abilities, to general engagement.

Dominating these exchanges in character and stifling other characters in the process is both against the spirit of these events, and falls under the bracket of god-modding. Nield, while I am sure this was not your intent in creating the character, Mizzleteran has dominated each and every exchange he has been a part of. He has been in complete control of the flow of battle for each exchange (with the exception of the previously re-written bellyflop) - and this has been enabled, in part, due to the separation between Mizzleteran and his pet; with the cordoned off pain and thus the lack of impact onto Mizzleteran himself being at the crux of it.

As such, I am going to disqualify Mizzleteran and his pet from the Elemental Championships. The concept is one I'm glad you got to explore, and I hope you get to pull similar threads in other stories - but it is not a fit here.

I will have flavor text up momentarily.

Edit: Anastira, as this impacts viterbi directly and your deadline was late this evening, you may request up to a day as an extension without having it count against your official extension budget.

Since my post has to be completely rewritten and replotted, for the sake of coordinating with Sy and others, I'm requesting a 24-hr extension. Sorry for the inconvenience and very excited to work with everyone on this post!

As you can probably tell from the Discord, these final posts have all been run by collaborators!

Thanks for an amazing arena, you guys!! Can't wait to watch finals!!
