  • Immortal Summer Slam!





    With Aragorn's fight of the day coming to a close, let me set up a new type of tournament: The All out Summer Slam!


    All immortals currently represented in the Tier list will be randomly selected for a fight to the death in which anything goes!
    • Do you have a favourite immortal that you think deserves to shine? Vote for him/her!
    • Do you like the special abilities from the Voice, the power of illusion to the power of guns? Lucky you!
    • Do you think the victor should take on the special abilities of his/her victim? Just say so!
    • Do you want the immortals to grow stronger with each victory? They will! (because Quickenings!)
    • Do you think Benny Carbassa could take it all? Go see a shrink!


    Each fight will feature 2 immortals, assigned numerical values and special skills for the immortals will be provided by yours truly (for reference or to ignore),
    and YOU can cast your votes on how the fight will go!

    The winner of each fight progresses to the next fight, but with how much gain is entirely up to the voters!


    However you want the fight to go, describe it as good as you can BUT each vote must contain 3 things:
    1. Who wins the fight.
    2. How much the winner gains from the victory (a percentage of the power difference probably works best)
    3. If the winner gains the special ability from his/her victim.
    Have fun!

      This is a cool idea! I would suggest including Intelligence, which could be a major component in this fight.

      By these stats, it would appear Ursa would gain the victory. Johnny was a sneaky little cuss though. Ursa would not be expecting a taser. The first zap with it though is either going to put him on his ass or send him into a rage.I don't think Johnny could handle that. So, oddly, I am going to go with Ursa.

      Not sure I follow "How much the winner gains from the victory (a percentage of the power difference probably works best)" but I will try this....

      I think Ursa might scoop a little bit of intelligence from Johnny here, maybe some small weapons knowledge. These are thing I have always thought a winner would gain in a Quickening.

      Hope I did this right. lol

        If you would apply Johnny K.'s special skills he'd beat Ursa even though Ursa is physically stronger.

        But you don't have to. If you think Ursa would best Johnny K and acquire his special skills, you can.

        And how many points he gains is up to you too. Anywhere between 0 and 106 in this case.

      I think it'll go down like this:

      The monks are taking out a contract on Ursa because they are fed up with him interrupting every sermon.

      They end up hiring Johnny K. who, while scouting the area finds out Ursa is immortal. The monks send Ursa to collect flowers and that is when Johnny K. makes his move.

      From a hunting stand he set up, he shoots Ursa, who tries to scuttle to safety like a wounded animal. When Johnny K. approaches, Ursa lashes out but is subdued with Johnny's hidden weapons.

      Johnny K takes Ursa's head and gains approximately half of the power difference between him and Ursa.

      Johnny gains no extra skill because Ursa doesn't have one.

        Just saw this. I'll jump in.

        Johnny K vs. Ursa

        I think this would come about mostly because Johnny K would see Ursa as vulnerable and would try to get an easy kill. I think he attacks him and Ursa starts beating him up. Johnny K runs away. Ursa follows him. Johnny K shoots him and takes his head.

        1. Winner = Johnny K
        2. I have no clue how to calculate this. Honestly, I think you should determine this since you're the game master. Maybe roll a dice?
        3. I don't think he gets any special ability from him.
        1. Who wins the fight.
        2. How much the winner gains from the victory (a percentage of the power difference probably works best)
        3. If the winner gains the special ability from his/her victim.

          Does he make his saving throw, you mean? I keep giggling when I read the one about the falling dwarf who makes a miraculous throw, enabling him to survive by flapping his arms.

          OK, I'll set a fixed formula. It can always be changed if any player wants to divert from it

          According to all those stats, Lord Byron takes it. In my opinion, it might be closer than what these stats imply.

          Byron and his band are backstage after a big show. Greg, who stayed at the back of the arena taking pictures of Byron, enters and confronts Byron. This is a mistake from the get go. Byron is feeling his oats due to "medicinal assistance". In addition, and as a musician I can attest to this, when you first come off stage, the adrenaline is absolutely insane. There have been times I didn't sleep for a few days and there were plenty of times I had to have a few stiff drinks just to come down. Picking a fight with anybody in that frame of mind is just a bad idea. Greg is more interested in mind games and Byron will laugh that off, matching them with his own. Byron puts a round in Greg's chest from his hidden side arm. As Greg lays, wheezing, Byron begins singing "Who wants ... to live .... foreveeeerrrrrr" and takes Greg's head. Byron gains Greg's dated but interesting knowledge of medicine and healing. One other thing. After killing Greg, Byron's limp seems to be considerably less.

            Mind games, though? Gregor post Duncan's intervention may not have been that sort. Not a head hunter.

        • #9
          I like Slash's reason for them fighting. I agree, even without stats, Byron is a much better sword fighter even w/ the gimp. So so fight, Byron wins. If Gregor starts getting the upper hand, Byron shoots him the foot (like he did Duncan) and it's all down hill for Gregor. VOTE: Byron

            I also agree fully with Mr. Slash' setup.

            So Byron takes this and his new stats will be:

              Guardian is about to win, Duncan kicks him in the junk from behind and Katherine takes his head. I can't stomach the Guardian in here. Theoretically his score should be like 2,000 versus her 400. Since it's not, I'll vote her over him.

                If you wish.

                Maybe Katherine can try and decapitate him across the jaw? Maybe he'll run circles around her? Maybe both?

                Anything can happen if you imagine it.

              The Guardian strangely doesn't seem too popular.

              So Katherine wins this encounter because the Guardian hasn't seen a woman in 10.000 years. Let alone a very capable one.

                    Mumbar.... while the numbers seem to point to him, I have no point of reference other than this graphic. Was he in one of the books? I don't recall him and I have read them all (although to be fair its been a while). Is he in The Raven? I have yet to watch that.

                    Guess I will go with this Mumbar person. If Carter lost to a noob like Richie, he will certain lose to this eater of glass. I don't think he gains much of anything from Carter.

                        Hmm. What a tangle. She would have to spend a lot of time avoiding Kantos. Also, the fact that he doesn't seem to rule a kingdom implies that someone's been keeping him from power. That would have to be her. So if their power doesn't work against each other, she may have had to fight him more than once.

                        "Visual reference for her swordsmanship is very limited" I bring Kantos into it because he is (if we go by that poetic "learned over a thousand years") a long-term associate who thinks he is the Voice of Death. Of course, she thought so too.

                    • #20
                      Cassandra is 4,000 years old. She also has that voice power. General Katana would not stand a chance. Not sure why her stats are so low. You don't live 4,000 years without being able to protect yourself. If you think General Katana has ANY ability to hang with a seasoned immortal, go back and watch his fight with Connor. Connor trashes him. And enjoy Katana's 11 second quickening which is pathetic, even by tv series standards.

                      Cassandra without question.

                        I think Katana is mad enough not to be affected by Cassandras voice. After he beheads her, he'll probably try and use the technique as well but would be much less effective.

                          Cord is a respectable fighter. He's not top tier but he's clearly comfortable in a fight and I feel probably fights fairly regularly. I know very little about Basil though he never struck me as someone with Cord's combat background.

                          I think Basil ticks off Cord, Cord picks a fight. Basil tries to walk away but Cord doesn't let him. They end up fighting; Basil holds his own but Cord takes him down.

                            Cord looks to have the edge. I'm sure it would be entertaining. I have never sat and watched The Raven and I need to. Cord takes this one. In Basil's quickening, Cord gains the knowledge of fencing stolen art, which he will use to fund a growing arms dealership.
                            "It's Rock & Roll. If you aren't breaking some sort of law, then you are doing it wrong." - me, answering a bandmate's question of what would happen if someone called the law on us for playing too loud at an outdoor show.
