The New and Improved Brave Companions


Number of Fighters:
4 Brave Companions + However many raiders

Equipment:
Brave Companions: Any
Raiders: Single Blue

Teams:
The Brave Companions verse the world!

Rules:
The Brave Companions is like a Dagorhir arcade game. You want your team of four to have the highest score possible so you can have the high score bragging rights! Your score is equal to the number of Raiders you kill so kill a bunch before your whole team dies!

The Special Stuff:
The Brave Companions don't get respawns. (But there's always healing poems! :P )
The Raiders have a staggered respawn rate equal to 20% of the number of Raiders. That means that if there are 30 Raiders, 6 have to die before any can respawn.
A herald will be in charge of keeping track of the score. (As if they were a death tax tax man)
Raiders don't know how to pick up projectiles or anything else for that matter, they are too bloodthirsty for normal thought processes.
Raiders should try their best to just charge into the fray and not worry about formations.

Re: The New and Improved Brave Companions


The scoring would be a question for me. If this is a bragging rights deal, then I would personally like to have my own score counted.

It's better than saying, "Yeah, my team got 400 in Brave Companions once." (You know, that time when it was me, Deakon, Sam, and Meager VS all of the first time fighters of the day.)

That's the issue I'd see with only having a single herald counting.

Hmmm, we'll have to devise a scoring system and maybe the vets could be heralds so this could be more for the less-experienced fighters?

The problem with that kind of scoring system is that some vets may want to participate and not just herald. emoticon

I'm all for the idea of bragging rights, but I just don't think this kind of system would work where vets are more than likely ending up on one team and then another. Unless of course you do it so that there are only set 4 people and you can only be on one team but that runs into a whole another set of problems.

Could take the total score of the four players and divide by four, rounded down. That would be the individual's high score.

How well would that work?

Well I think what Sam is saying is that one team might be super boosted if they had someone like you or Deakon on the team and so someone might be able to get a score of 100 and have died to the very first Raider that charged him. We shall work out a scoring system that can allow for vets to play and not carry others. Maybe a ref for each individual brave companion?

Four Heralds for one game? Why don't you just have a herald keep track of the total score and each individual keep track of their own kills. If the point is bragging rights than the honor system shouldn't be to hard to enforce, especially since the four numbers should add up to what the herald counted.
