Question

Three Teams.

Fifteen Castaways.

One Island.

One Destiny.

One Winner.

One Survivor

ASTRAY.

*** Game Process ***

3 teams of 5 each

- immunity challenges, 2 teams win each challenge, the loser going to Tribal Council (TC), where one person is voted off from that team by their fellow team members and eliminated from the game

- the first team to hit 2 people gets split up into the other 2 teams, one person going to each of the other teams randomly

2 teams left now

- now only team wins immunity, the other goes to Tribal Council

- when the total drops to 5 people, the teams merge into one

1 team left, of 5 people: the final 5

- immunity is individual, with only one person winning

- the team goes to TC after each immunity challenge, with the immunity-winner exempt from being voted for

- when it gets down to 2 people, the Jury decides who wins. The jury consists of 5 people, from the 7th place person to the 3rd place person, and they hold a final discussion where questions are asked, etc, then each juror casts their vote for the ultimate winner. For the ultimate survivor.

*** Tribal Council ***

A brief discussion will be held in public, then I start the voting and everyone PMs me the name of the person they want kicked off the team. I will tally the votes and the person will be asked to leave the show immediately :) (hehe). If the game is down to one team: Before the vote (during the discussion), if the Immunity Holder (IH) wants to give the immunity to someone else, they must state it before the voting begins!

- It takes majority (above 1/2) to kick someone off the island

- Immunity-Holder: if the game is down to 1 team and someone votes for the person with immunity, I will reply and tell them to change their vote. Also, the IH votes just like everyone else

- Hidden Immunity: if someone has a secret immunity idol, when they PM me their vote they must also tell me they want to use it, or if they want to give it to someone else

- Before revealing the vote tally, I will reveal if anybody used a hidden immunity or transferred immunity to anyone else. This can affect the voting: if someone is revealed as immune, all votes against that person are void, and the second-most voted person is sent packing

- In the event of a tie, I will constrict the ballot to the names involved in the tie, and redo the vote. If the vote is still tied after the second redo, other options will be pursued

*** Rules ***

The No's

: No insulting

: No complaining

: No announcing in-topic or in a PM that you have sent your vote in to me, or who you voted for, though you can of course say beforehand who you will vote for (however true that may be :P)

: No not having fun :D

The Yes's

: You can PM each other privately, but CC me in the PM!!!

: Please PM your vote in soon after I call for the votes, or as soon as you can. If a majority is reached before you have the chance to vote, you will be excluded from the vote, unless I know that you have an immunity idol, in which case I will wait to see if you use it. This won't affect anything or give away info because nobody knows who has PMed me

*** Challenges ***

I have a few ideas for challenges already, and may create a system of stats, numbers, etc, and possibly reward challenges to go with that, not sure yet. I will think on the finer details while people sign up :D

here are a few challenge ideas I have in mind...

* a game with points that involves devaluing others' point totals

* a game based solely on diplomacy where two teams must agree that the other team will lose and go to TC

* a game where the team that posts the xth post wins the challenge, however a team cannot post twice in a row under any reason or they're out and cannot post again until the xth post is made - this stresses teamwork (and fun)

* you must play an online game and post a pic of your score, however cheating is possible with this

Dang, I don't have time for any of the fun stuff on here anymore.

Though I might sign up for this...how much will be involved(time-wise)?

Since I'm in school too, just like you, there are no time constraints and it will all be very loose. So sign up :D

I'm officially "undecided" right now, though I don't see any reason why I wouldn't play.

BTW, I keep reading the topic as "ashtray". Don't know why.

Ah, I see, though you still seem to be around a heck of a lot more than I am(I've posted maybe 5 times in the last month). :P

Hmmm...well, I guess I will sign up, but I'm not sure if I should do it now or later. It seems like we get to choose our teams, so I'd rather wait and see how others sign up(so long as they don't take my idea). :D

CL: Yeah, that happens to me too. Dang, it just happened again! B))

Man, I just thought of a game that would be great, the only problem is that there are maybe 4 games going on at once and few people would sign up. Maybe I should try writing some rules for it... :D

Why do you think I'm not on the list yet?

Unreality, perhaps you should do a random team assignment?

Yeah, I was just thinking that, it would be much more fair for everyone.

Frost: Yeah, people are holding back from signing up since they want to wait and see who else is going to. Everyone thinks someone will, so nobody does. And thus now that I'm pointing this out, everyone will realize the idiocy of that, so of course everyone thinks that someone will then come forward and start the team-assigning, so thus nobody will :P

so yeah, I'll assign teams randomly ;D Just sign up, don't worry about teams or team names yet

Fine, I'm in. I figure CL will sign up too, but I'll let her do that.

Hmmm...this idea of mine is sounding better and better. :D

One last thing: don't make the challenges too time consuming unreality. I'm sure most won't be, but some can get addicting trying to beat(like that online game one), though that two teams ganging up on one sounded interesting. :P
