Mpya Stedor Annual Archery Tournament!
(Mpya Stedor Topic: My link)
Lord Damaximus' letter to his brother Mattiximus, King of the Guild of Ximus far far away, was succesfull. As Ximus is finally in peace with the rest of the continent, Mattiximus decided to sent some of his Elite Armies to Mpya Stedor to defend the city and Kaliphlin in the upcomming dark times.
So he sent his messengers to all corners of his Empire to persuade the soldiers (as he thought it was much better for the morale if the men choose to fight instead to be forced to fight). The response was great, even far more better than expected. But ofcourse, it would last some time before they will arrive at Mpya Stedor, so Mattiximus already sent the General of his own Royal Elite Archers who will lead the troups here in Historica.
Some weeks later, General Wisximus (family of Damaximus), arrived at Mpya Stedor to tell the great news to Damaximus.
As it is still no war, Damaximus thought about a good way to test his new troops: an arching competition against the best archers of Historica!
He took Easter as date and the desert as location (to make it a bit more difficult for the most archers because of the heat). His messengers were put on a horse and sent through all over Historica to advertise the tournament.
Hopefully the walls will be finished by then...
So, this is how I have the tournament in my mind:
Every Historica-member can sent his best archer to Mpya Stedor to compete against all the other archers. so 1 archer can be sent by every Historica-member
There is NO max. number of participants as I will use an elimination system based on obtaining a certain amount of points.
Second note: As Mpya Stedor is hosting the tournament, the first 4 participants will defend the honour of Mpya Stedor (but to be sure, everybody else may only sent one archer!).
I will use a program wich generates 2 random numbers between 01 and 100 for every archer in every round.
Depending on the place the arrow landed.
01 - 20: target missed => 0 points
21 - 40: circle 5 => 10 points
41 - 60: circle 4 => 25 points
61 - 75: circle 3 => 50 points
76 - 90: circle 2 => 75 points
91 - 100: bulls eye => 100 points
Amount of time before the arrow hit the target. The rule is that the bow stands next to the archer till the moment they hear the start signal.
01 - 10 seconds => 50 points
11 - 25 seconds => 40 points
26 - 40 seconds => 30 points
41 - 60 seconds => 20 points
61 - 80 seconds => 10 points
81 - 100 seconds => 0 points
The total amount of points is result 1 + result 2
In round 1: every archer with less than 50 will be eliminated.
In round 2: every archer with less than 70 will be eliminated
In round 3: every archer with less than 90 will be eliminated
In round 4: every archer with less than 110 will be eliminated
In round 5+: same as round 4 till there is one champion!
!!!! As everybody can have a bad moment, archers who doesn't obtain the points necessary have 2 more changes !!!!
- Weapons: Only Bows are allowed! (NO pistols, guns, muskets, lasershooters, arrow-trackers, rabbits, javelins, axes, Grumpy Sparrows, ... )
- No catapults or siege weapons allowed!
- Crossbows will have automatically 5 seconds penalty (as it is more difficult to load it).
- Only beings are allowed! So no automatic droids, clones, robots, ... .
- No magic allowed!
- Shopping at Bricklink for a total of 10 Euro! (and I pay sending costs too so the total will be around 15)
- 50 Gold Coins for the winner
- Title: "Champion Archer of Mpya Stedor" (or maybe even Historica?)
What to do now?
1 ) Take a picture of your champion archer. Post it in this topic! (a background story is also always a nice thing to post! )
But now you can start searching for your champion archer and the podium!
Also, feedback on the idea is welcome as well. If you got some remarks or questions, feel free to send a personal message to me!
I can't promise I will adapt your remarks, but we'll see! We got time
