Hey. I have decided to start up a new game thread Big Smile Smilie


Rules

Basically; Add Points to your favourites, and take them from the ones you hate. You can take or add up to 10 Points a day, and if a character gets to 40 Points, they get through to the next round. If a character gets to 0, they are Eliminated. After 20 Point Changing Posts, the surviving characters with the highest number of points go through, aswell as the characters who had already got through that round. An Updated list will be posted after every 5 Points Changing posts.

When the Second round begins, all characters start with 20 points again.

Rounds

For Round One; After 20 Points Changing posts, the 15 with the highest points go through to round 2.
The Second Round will be played the same, but after 20 PCPs, the 10 highest go through. Round Three Will be played to get the final 5 people.
Round Four Will be 10 Posts, and the top 3 go through.
Round Five will have different rules to the last 4 rounds. The 3 Survivors Start with 5 Points, and you are only allowed to take or add 1 point per day. The First to 10, or the only Survivor Wins. The 20 PCP rule will NOT be used for Round 5.

The Second Game will be played with 3 Elimination Rounds. Elimination 1 will be all of the Elven Leaders, Elimination 2 will be with all of the Human Leaders, and Elimination 3 will be Saurons Men. They will all be played to 5 Survivors from each group, who will all go into Round 2, and then It will be played the same as the first game.

Hey, nice idea for a thread! Big Smile Smilie
I think it should be only you who does the list, turning all the changed names and their numbers (changed since your last list) into bold. Oh, and I think people should say why they have added or subtracted points from a character.
Morgoth is the supreme evil and should not be taken down so soon! All my 10 points to him, giving him a total of 24.
Good idea Fornac, And I've added your points on.
Oh, I''ve just noticed a problem with the rules. It might be difficult to actually eliminate a character, since there will always be one person keeping them in. It would make things go on for a looongg time (imagine the last two...).
So we could say that after a certain number of points-changing posts (by that I mean posts where members add or subtract points to or from a certain character or characters, say 20 of them), the five characters with the least points are eliminated. This would get through the list faster (afterwards we could even have themed lists: ones of only elves, ones of men, dwarves, evil people, Valar and Maiar, etc.).
So many possiblities! Anyway, Surivan, consider my proposition.

EDIT: Did you give the WK four points? And I think you should make a new list-post with every few points-changing posts (instead of just editing that first one), so that people can keep a track of things.
Good point. I accidentally missed that from the rules. So Every 20 Points Changing Posts, the people with the highest score (depending on which round) go through. Every 5 PCPs, I will post an updated list. I will add this into the OP now.

Yeah; I did give WK 4 Points, and took that 6 from Morgoth. And about the themed list, read the second paragraph in the 'Rounds' section in the OP.

I will delete the first updated list post, and start the 5 post rule from here.

Quote:
After 20 Point Changing Posts, the surviving characters with the highest number of points go through,

How many of the surviving characters?

Quote:
For Round One; After 8 have been eliminated, the survivors go through to round 2.


Shouldn't it be that after 20 PCPs, the fifteen (for example) characters with the most points go through? And what happens if there are a few characters who are all equal in points?
Those are a few things you'll have to deal with.
Sorted, and I will add 10 to the witch king. (I haven't added that onto the table though.)
I'm still a little confused here but will add 5 points to Frodo and take 5 from Gollum.
You speak for me too Sian. I am too confused and would rather wait till there are updates on the points to each to offer my precious points
3rd PCP- I am adding a final 6 onto WK, he is now on 40 Points and the first to reach Round 2.

Sian; You have a maximum of 10 points to use. After 20 Posts which change points, the survivors with the highest points go through, along with all of the characters that already went through (EG; Witchking), and the game restarts. The amount that go through varies each round. Smile Smilie
So WK, Morgoth and Frodo are the three highest and are going on? Or since there haven't been twenty posts yet the second round hasn't started. And since its another day and I have another ten points I want to take ten from WK. Smile Smilie Do I have it right?
You do Sian. Smile Smilie

The Witchking has reached 40, and will go through automatically at the end of this round, and if Frodo and Morgoth stay in the lead, they will go through after 20 PCPs.

PCP; Point Changing Posts Smile Smilie

I am not sure whether you should be able to take from characters who have gone through though. I'll allow you to take away from Witchking. *Grumble* Tongue Smilie

I haven't used the other 4 of my points today, so I will add them onto the WK. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie

Should we allow taking from Characters who have reached 40

I will count this as a PCP, and will post the 1st updated list now.

I'll add five both to Merry and Pippin.

EDIT: Oh, and I think that if a character has reached 40 then his or her score cannot be changed until the next round, when it is set back to 20.
Changed Witch-King to 40. Sian, you get 10 free points tomorrow, and I get 6 free points tomorrow. I have also changed the Gothmogs to what you said. Smile Smilie
Sounds good Smile Smilie I'll apportion out 20 points tomorrow. this is fun!
I'll add another five to Merry and Pippin.
Ok, its a new day Smile Smilie I'll add 10 to Frodo and take 10 from Morgoth.
3rd PCP Morgoth +16

Edit; Fornac, you need to finish the bold tags for that post Smile Smilie

I have closed them in my post, but Sians post is still bold.
4th PCP; Morgoth +10

Morgoth is through to the second round!

Edit; The Forum clock is an hour off, Shaking Head Smilie
I'll add 10 to Sam for today.

The clock is set to GMT time to be fair to all of PT's members across the globe. I'd always assumed that you lived in the UK, Eruheran?
I'll give Gandalf 10 today.
I am in the UK, but the clocks were put an hour back/ahead a few months back.

And I'll add 10 to Sam for today.
But it isn't been adjusted for Daylight Savings Time. The Clock on my telly said 11:59 when I posted that. Shaking Head Smilie
GMT doesn't change with DST, since many countries in the world don't use DST and it needs to be fair to everyone.
I will take 5 from Gollum and 5 to Boromir.

Spread out your points for the last 5 PCPs, so we can get the right amount through.

5 to Frodo and 5 to Boromir
3 From Gollum
2 to Eomer

1 to the Mouth of Sauron

Frodo is through!
I thought that you couldn't take from Sam, since he's already through.

Five from both Merry and Pippin for today.
We are Finished! It is extremely amusing that Boromir finished with 39. The top 15 have been selected and sent through.

The Selections are in alphabetical order, in case there is 3 people who could be the 15th person.

That's lucky, there's exactly 15 characters with their points above 20. Makes the leaderboard easy to do! Big Laugh Smilie
10 Points to Boromir, and for round 2, I have added in a new character with low points.
Why did you add a new character?

Five to Merry and five to Pippin.
If you don't like it, I will remove Bill the Pony.

10 to Boromir. Boromir is the first through to Round 3!
10 from Frodo.
10 to Frodo. Big Laugh Smilie
We need a rule that stops stuff like this happening. It takes up and wastes time. Maybe;
After 3 Consecutive posts with the same character, you cannot change their points for another 2 PCPs.

10 from Frodo
But that was my first PCP with Frodo - ever.
As in Consecutive in total.

Me; -10 Frodo
Geoff; +10 Frodo
Bill; -10 Frodo

being repeated for a while. We end up not being able to choose who goes through.
10 to Morgoth.
