Ice Bridge


A new one we just did at a recent day event.

Normal bridge battle (pick whatever objective works for scoring, not important), with normal water rules on each side.

At regular intervals, the water "freezes", so the whole field turns into an open battlefield.

At regular intervals, the ice "melts," drowing people who didn't make it to safety.

For added fun, use a few hula hoops as moveable "mini-icebergs" so you can move semi-freely in the water.

We had a blast with it, we had about 50 fighters total doing it.

Re: Ice Bridge


Used this scenario last Saturday and had a good time. Motley and I considered afterward the variant that we placed for our fight.

We used an independent archer, indiscriminately firing upon both teams. We termed this player, "The River God," and bestowed this player the ability to freeze/thaw the river (except, in our case, she was the "Goddess"). Freezing could happen instantly, but thawing required a 3 second, vocalized countdown.

Motley and I decided that the archer has too much power in this mode, however, and decided to limit the "River God" to only being able to fire arrows while the water is frozen. BUT! If the water is frozen, players may then run to the "RG" and turn him/her off for 10 seconds. Doing so, however, will immediately cause the river to start thawing (3 seconds to get back to the bridge).


To recap:

- Bridge battle, as normally described.
- Rushing water causes instant death to step into.
- "River God" can instantly freeze water.
- While frozen, players can traverse the entire field of play.
- While frozen, "RG" can fire into play.
- While frozen, players can attack "RG" and immediately begin thawing.
- While frozen, "RG" may voluntarily call a thaw and count to 3, then cease firing.
