This thread will be your OOC forum for the competitors of the Hellfire 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 appear in a rough circle in the center of the battlefield, facing outwards towards the first ring of fire. The order in which you are listed in the roster below is the relative order that your characters stand in in this circle, with the first person listed standing at the North and moving clockwise around the circle. Alternatively, the person listed above you on the roster will be the fighter to your left, and the person listed below you will be on your right. 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?
Hellfire is a square battlefield. Each boundary wall is 120 feet (36.6 meters) long, and the distance from the geometric center to any of the four corners is approximately 85 feet (25.9 meters). The boundary walls are formed of fire, and are the primary light source of the battlefield. A rough map of the battlefield, to scale, may be found here.
Where are the rings of fire?
There are four concentric rings of fire, placed so that your characters are currently standing in the center of the smallest ring. The first is 20 feet (6.10 meters) in diameter, the second 50 feet (15.2 meters) , the third 80 feet (24.4 meters) , and the fourth 110 feet (33.5 meters). Each ring is about 1 foot (0.30 meters) tall, and placed at varying heights - with the first ring at ground level, the second at chest level for the average person, the third at around knee level, and the fourth at stomach level. The rings also shed light, but not as much as the boundary walls, so it is much darker in the center of the arena than at the outskirts. The fire is of normal heat - meaning it will ignite flammable objects and burn exposed flesh.
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.
