2020 Running of the Leaves (OOC Signup, Standings, Discussion)

Recommended Posts

                      gallery_69_17_381065.png

Welcome to the Official 2020 Running of the Leaves signups, standings and OOC discussion thread. The start date is November 6th; the end date is November 29th.

- The Running of the Leaves is a race that spans through the Whitetail woods. We will have a special thread for every three days of the race- each of these three days represent a different stage of the race through Whitetail woods.

- Everypony on the forum can race with one WoE RP approved character.
- Each post during a stage is worth one point.

- We will also evaluate the quality of each post per section of the race, awarding a player between 0-3 points for the stage as an RP bonus.

- Additionally, I will be rolling a D6 and adding that many points to your score. This reflects the randomness of such competitions. This system leaves a lot of the race up to random chance (which is much like a real race- you never know the strength of all your competitors!); but everypony will be able to directly affect their chances by how well, and how often, they choose to RP the race.

- There are bonuses in five of the seven stages. Sometimes they will be explained thoroughly, while other times you will need to pay attention to the words of the OP and events in the thread itself. Some bonuses are optional while certain threads are littered with bonuses as well as deductions. Bonuses and deductions will be based on what the characters choose to do. Choices can be made, timing can be important. Sometimes it is best to be bold but remember that being bold can have a downside while being safe and secure is no guarantee of victory! Deductions are also possible.

- Because of the way this is set up, even if you miss a 'section' of the race, you won't necessarily be out of your chance for 1st place- hang in there and give it your best! If you join late to the race, no problem at all! Just start RPing from the section that everypony is currently on- you never know, luck may just be on your side!
- You can sign up and start racing at any time, no matter when as long as the event runs. 

Summary and Rules
- 7 Stages to race in.
- One point per post, 1-6 possible die roll, 0-3 for RP quality. 2-3 for deductions and bonuses based on the stage and events.
- No double posting. There is also a hidden limit to the amount of points that can be gained by posting to prevent spam. Spam posts will result in deductions. We want you to post, but we want you and your friends to have good, fun posts, not spam.
- No flying and no magic!

It’s Tiger Blood, not Tiger Blaze, but it’s an understandable mistake. They’re both the same length, with the same two starting letters, and Blaze is part of my username. Just thought I should let you know.

Berry is coming in, looking for love (the wedding of RD and AJ inspired her!)

He's running for Mayor, he might as well run this race as well. And if we can convince Spoiled to run as well... Full power to the little spite goblin in our souls.

Speaking of spirit (no necessary that of competition).....this race doesn't seem thrilling enough!

That's why Shur...ehem, Jade Beaker will be joining the 'fun' as well!

There is a bonus in this stage. It will give a random number of points, but it may or may not come back to haunt you in the future!

Did AB get knocked into the same spot as Midnight, Berry, and Jade? Just want to make sure before I update the post.
