"Well Bob it's that time again... Dig out your foam finger and your fungus brew hat... it's Wyvern Joust season!"

"That's right 'Chasa. Only one week to go until the first match of the season. The whole of 'Deadfire' pass is quivvering with anticipation. Can anyone top 'Mad' Gnasha's unbeaten streak of 42 jousts? Will we see a repeat of the famous double fatality match from two seasons ago? Will anyone try anything as stupid as the Whizzit brothers pedal-powered paper machee Wyvern from last years Soopacup? There's only one way to find out and we're bringing it to you live and uninterrupted, here on the ORCNN network. Don't touch that dial!"

"Who are you talking to Bob? What's a dial?"

"Shut up 'Chasa...."


--------------

Some of the real Warpath fossils may remember my first Wyvern joust which seems to have been lost in the forum ether. This one will follow a similar format. The entrants have a set points limit to purchase a Wyvern, a rider and some kit (cunningly designed to force you into difficult choices). The competitors are paired up and joust to the death with the winner advancing to the next round.

In the past I rolled all the dice and reported the results as pieces of fluff, but this time I will be getting the competitors involved a little as well. Not quite sure how yet, but probably asking them to write a 50-100 word bit each round and awarding the best one a bonus.

This will be kicking off towards the middle of next week after the monthly contest fever has died down. So roll up one and all, and join Bob the reporta grot and 'Stormchasa', the hall-of-fame Wyvern jouster for Wyvern Joust XLVII.

“ Looks like there’s a commotion over in the west stand, and this time it’s not the crowd rioting”

“Yes Jim, If I’m not mistaken we have another competitor. I can see a jouster walking their wyvern into the arena. Well at least I think it’s a wyvern”

“ Ha Ha, yeah, I know what you mean. More of a flying pear than the sleek, dangerous snakes of the sky you normally see. Mind you, the rider ain’t much better. I know it’s been while since last season but some orcs have really let themselves go.”

“Word, that’s certainly a heavy weight team, and for all the wrong reasons. I’m just glad the whole financial irregularity with the league president has been cleared up so we’re able to bring you the new season here on ORCNN”

“Just good common sense if you ask me. It was obvious to everyone that President Hatchett had simply forgotten to declare the 56 million gold crowns they found in that Albion trust fund. I know the guy personally, and apart from his penchant for naked witch elves and the gambling addiction the guy’s a saint. Absolute saint I tell you!”

“You forgot the drink driving conviction, but I’m with you dude. Hey look, team Hippo are taken a breather. They're sitting down and they haven’t even got past the orccornTM stands yet. Do you think they’re even gonna get airborne?”

“Not unless an earthquake opens up a fissure and they fall in. I’ll bet you a beer they don’t get past the first round.”

“You’d have to be a fool to take that bet Jim.”

“So we’re on?”

“We’re on.”


This is a genius idea. I'm in.

AHEM! Fossil?!?!?!?

It is the return of Bob and the other git Chasa! Woot! I remember this contest, Draig. Good show! If you recall, the mighty Goomb was in the stands for it. I might have to join dis ere un!

Oh, and the old version was deleted in the Infamous Haxor Attack on April Fool's Day. Bugger git!

Well 'Chasa now i've seen everything. Team 'Da Big Boss Made Uz Do It' is fielding 'Ol Blind Io, the winning Wyvern from the Worldz Cup seven years ago! I thought he had retired. Or died. I certainly thought he was blind...

Nah see that's a myth Bob, meant to lure the....

<The sound of screaming and crunching can be heard from the west stand as the obviously blind Wyvern veers off into the terraces, munching on anything within reach>

Good contribution there 'Chasa

Shut up Bob


=====

It's almost time! With the monthly contest voting closed I want to kick this off soon. We currently have 7 people signed up below (assuming Goomb and Skarz are still interested?) I'd love 8 for neatness - that way I can do Quarter Finals, Semi Finals and a Best of 3 Final. If no one else is interested I'll enter a rider myself to make up the numbers.

Points limit and rules incoming in the next day or so!

There is indeed. That's 8 assuming Goomb and Skarz are still in? If you two could let me know sometime in the next day or so I'll get things moving.

Well it seems as though Goomb is MIA, probably on a work trip so I'll get this rolling and if he pulls out I'll enter a rider myself. Look for the points limit to be up later tonight once I get my grubby paws on a rulebook.

Da Wyvern Joust Roolz

The 8 jousters will be divided up into 4 pairs who will fight to the death.

The winners will advance to the next round (semi finals)

The final will be best of 3 jousts. All other rounds will be single elimination.

Attacks will be resolved in order of initiative.
Where there is a tie, I will dice off.
Mounts and their riders will test seperately.

Riders will attack riders and mounts will attack mounts.
If one rider kills another, any extra wounds will be assigned to the mount.
If a mount dies, that player looses, even if his rider is still alive (remember, you'll be half a mile up in the air, if the mount dies your won't be alive for long!)

I will put up a points limit tonight. From this you must buy:

1) A warboss (Comon Goblin, Night Goblin, Orc, Savage Orc, Black Orc)
2) A Wyvern (obviously)
3) Magic Items (following the usual restrictions)

Between rounds you may reallocate up to 50 points of your magic item budget.

Once the point limit is up please PM me your character build and a name for both your rider and your Wyvern. Once I have everyone's details we'll get this show on the road!

Any questions, post em here!

If I can be in, I'd love to. I missed the first joust, but greatly enjoyed reading about it.
