Hey, nice idea for a thread! :D
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.

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.

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

How many of the surviving characters?

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.)

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.

Round 1 Points List

Frodo - 20
Sam - 20
Merry - 20
Pippin - 20
Gandalf - 20
Aragorn - 20
Legolas - 20
Gimli - 20
Boromir - 20
Théoden - 20
Éomer - 20
Bilbo - 20
Faramir - 20
Thorin - 20
Morgoth - 24
Sauron - 20
The Witch King - 24
The Mouth of Sauron - 20
Saruman - 20
Gollum - 20
Gothmog (Books - Balrog) - 20
Gothmog (Films - Orc) - 20
Smaug - 20

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. :)

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. :) Do I have it right?
