Schoolyard Mage Wars!
« on: September 11, 2013, 09:36:07 PM »
Takes place in the VERY distant future.

30 spellbook points
All Mages start with 10 Health and 5 channeling, and also 12 bragging points (more on this in a bit)
No ability cards.
When you lose by damage, your mage gets knocked out, not killed.
There's a time limit of 30 minutes, since that's how long recess is. A teacher marker patrols the arena walls. If they catch you fighting you lose. The Playground arena's twelve zones have different terrain on them. The middle 2 zones are the playground which has slides that lead into the zones left and right of them. All creatures going down slides have fast when going down them.

In the bottom middle two zones is the basketball court. If your classmates there see you fighting, they might gather and watch. The same thing goes for the grassy soccer field in the upper two middle zones. If too many classmates gather too watch, the teacher will get suspicious and enter the arena to investigate.

There are two ways to win: a Braggart's victory and a Bully's victory.

You achieve a Bully's victory either when your opponent is knocked unconscious or has more damage than you when the time runs out.

You acheive a Braggart's victory if your opponent either gets in more trouble with the teacher than you, or gets humiliated enough. (For instance, using Dissolve on their pants, or revealing Stumble while they're in a muddy area of the soccer field.) More creative and humorous moves allow you to steal more bragging points from your opponent (you can either steal 1, 2, 3, half or all their points, depending on the level of humiliation)

SOunds very cool and comic! I love it!

It reminds me of this card game I use to play in the 90's- It was like you were school kids that had to beat each other to death.....it was kinda popular- so I am hopping someone knows what I am talking about.

You know.....I could in all honesty see this as a "cute" little kind of spin off game. (I imagine the mages looking like "chibi characters")

I like it!
Where does my greatest enemy lie?
It has been around since the dawn of time,
it follows your loved ones as well as mine,
takes the form of a mountain as well as a flower,
it cannot be outrun by the greatest of power.
Where does my greatest enemy lie?

Back in the early 90's (I think it was the early 90s!) you were mighty cool if you played this game.

You would skip school-sit in an abandoned house-smoke-drink-and play Lunch Money.....(I guess if you grew up a weirdo like me)

But yeah! I remember it fondly. I don't know how well it has aged though.
