Starflame13 -> =WPC 2020= Hallowed OOC (1/26/2020 22:30:28)
This thread will be your OOC forum for the competitors of the Hallowed Battlefield 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 Judge 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.
The Trials are a free-for-all fight intended to allow your characters, the Pawns, to prove themselves worthy of fighting in the Final Battle. Remember: you have no clue who is a friend and who is a foe. Even if you think someone may share your Alignment, in this round, you are all enemies. Temporary alliances can be formed, and broken, at the whims of the participants - and it is off of individual performance that Knights will be chosen.
Combatants in this battlefield may appear wherever they choose. Please state clearly, either in your post or in one of the OOC locations, exactly where your character has materialized. If two characters happen to pick the same general area, they will appear directly next to each other. All contestants are assumed to appear at roughly 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.
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 battlefield?
Hallowed is a square battlefield. Each boundary river is 120 feet (36.6 meters) long, and the distance from the geometric center to any of the four corners is approximately 85feet (25.9 meters). The boundary rivers in this case appear “very very deep”. A rough map of the battlefield, to scale, may be found here.
What’s the deal with the rivers?
There are two rivers spiraling outward from a center pool, which is 20 feet (6.10 meters) in diameter. The rivers are approximately 10 feet (3.05 meters) wide. They are rather shallow at the edges, and only about a foot deep (0.30 meters) in the center. The rivers gradually nullify magic - magical attacks that cross one bank will weaken and disperse entirely by the time it reaches the opposite bank, and personal auras/enchantments will weaken and fade to nothing as a character passes through them, to return in full force upon exiting the water.
A few more details about the Chequered City
If you attempt to destroy any of the buildings/inhabitants of the City, they will reform briefly after the destruction. It is possible to encounter other combatants in the city - so while you may tweak the process of time for your character, ensure that your actions will impact you and you alone. The automotans can take on different forms depending on your characters interpretation: they can look like people you know, although something will feel slightly... off if they do, or look entirely mechanical, or anywhere in the range between.
