  • FIGHT OF THE DAY!!! - Royal Rumble!!

    Alright everyone, here it is... the Highlander Royal Rumble!!

    Here are the scenario:

    Immortals are fighting all over Madison Square Garden (it's empty). They feel an irresistible pull to come here and fight for the prize. Anything goes.

    RULES

    1. Two immortals join the battle to start. Each day, 2 more immortals will enter.
    2. Each voter gets 2+ votes and 2- votes. You can spread them out or give 1 vote to an immortal and 1 vote to another.
    3. When an immortal hits 0, they are killed and removed from the game.
    4. Exhaustion will play a part. Each day when I add 2 immortals in, I will take 1 point from everyone involved. Exhaustion will NEVER eliminate an immortal but can leave them vulnerable for elimination.
    5. Vote for anyone for any reason you want, though try to take into consideration fighting skill, vulnerability, suitability, etc.

    THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

  • #2
    And the immortal who drew #1.... from Eithiopia .....Sunda Kastigir!!

    And the immortal who drew #2 .... from England ... Hugh Fitzcairn!!!

    Sunda Kastigir = 05
    Hugh Fitzcairn = 05

      So to give you a sample of how we vote: copy and paste the score from the previous voter (honor system here, no cheating)

      I think Kastigir is better than Fitz, but not by a lot so I'm not going to use both of my votes up today. I'm going to give Kastigir 1 point, take one from Fitz. Most days I'll spend both, but since we're just starting I'm going to spend 1.

      CURRENT SCORE: (please leave the order alone, this will show which order they came in.

      1. Sunda Kastigir = 06
      2. Hugh Fitzcairn = 04

        Do I get 2+ and 2- votes every day?
        Can I save them up so I can instantly obliterate or supercharge any given immortal?

        Kastagir is way better than Fitzcairn in my opinion. And after some pre-fight drinking of Boom-boom Fitzcairn has no chance of winning at all.
        I'm going to use my two - points for him.

        1. Sunda Kastigir = 06
        2. Hugh Fitzcairn = 02

          Considering Fitzcairn did some flippity flops during a fight with Conner, I think he can be more of a fighter +2 for him.

            Hugh is better than people give him credit for.

              Great questions

              1) You get 2+ and 2- per day.

              2) You CAN NOT save them. use them or lose them.

              I will say, you can be somewhat strategic about it. It's 2+, 2- per calendar day. I expect people to stick to the honor system. You can follow your own time-zone, but you can post 2 votes at 11:59 pm, then at midnight post again. Just don't vote later that day again.

                I'm going to use my other votes I didn't use earlier....

                +1 to Kastigir
                - 1 to Fitzcairn

                1. Sunda Kastigir = 05
                2. Hugh Fitzcairn = 05

                  I think you're mixing up Fitz with Iman Fasil.

                    Fine, I'll add my +2 to Kastagir then if the timeslot still allows it.

                      Fitz was down to 2 points, I thought he was toast.

                        Talbot is no fool and will seek out Fitzcairn using the onset of fatigue to his advantage +1 for Talbott, -1 for Fitzcairn.
                        Hyde will go after Kastagir with expected results. +1 for Hyde and -1 for Kastagir.

                              Methos and Nefertiri may actually know each other from the old days...and they're two of the better ones here, so +1 to both. I'll take 1 from Talbott, killing him. I'll also lop 1 off of Kastigir.

                                The freshest are also the best so a point to Methos, but I see Hyde going after Nefertiri as a perceived weak link so one off her, and one to him. and one from Kastiger for fighting to exhaustion in robes.

                                  Whoever turned up to help Fitzcairn eliminate Talbott is now no longer helping. -2 for Fitzcairn.
                                  Also Hyde is relishing in the amount of seasoned immortals to choose from +1 for him.
                                  Kastagir finds the time to take a sip of Boom-boom, steadying his hand. +1 for him.

                                    - 2 Martin Hyde. Sooooooo over rated. Any immortal that is genuinely seeeeaaaasoned would eat his punk ass alive.
                                    +2 to Nefertiri, who hopes Hyde chooses her.

                                      - 2 Martin Hyde. He foolishly decides Methos is the seeeeaaasoned immortal he wants, not realizing he is 4,700 years more seeeaaasoned than he is used to.
                                      +2 to Methos, who has wisely been hanging back as much as he can, while fighting goes on elsewhere until Hyde approaches him. Death is suddenly hungry.

                                        2. Hugh Fitzcairn = Eliminated
                                        3. Martin Hyde = 05
                                        4. Methos = 11
                                        5. Nefertiri = 07
                                        1. Sunda Kastigir = 03
                                        2. Martin Hyde = 05
                                        3. Methos = 11
                                        4. Nefertiri = 07

                                        I'll wait and see which new fighters enter the arena before I spend my points today. But it's looking grim for Kastagir.

                                          #7 enters the battle ... Lucas ... Kagan! .... (crowd groans)
                                          #8 enters the battle ... from Peru! ... Gavriel Larca!!!

                                            + to Methos - if anyone can survive a long battle like this, it's him. His skill set is so high, he's got survivability and most people won't know him
                                            + to Martin Hyde - still one of the strongest fighters in the group. Minus Methos, I don't think anyone in here would give him any trouble and I think Methos would stay away from him.
                                            -- to Gavriel Larca - I think he's the worst fighter by far who would actually hang around and fight. I was going to -- to Lucas Kagan but I think he'd tuck tail and run. What I was writing about Kagan: "I just think he's so much worse than everyone in here. I think he would maybe even try fighting Nefertiri who would kick him around like nobody's business. I think he would run and try to hide." Once I realized that I switched to Larca.

                                            1. Sunda Kastigir = 02
                                            4. Martin Hyde = 05
                                            5. Methos = 11
                                            6. Nefertiri = 06
                                            7. Lucas Kagan = 05
                                            8. Gavriel Larca = 03

                                              Larca would immediately try to establish dominance by attacking the weakest link, which is Kagan.
                                              So -2 for Kagan, +1 for Larca and I'll give +1 to Hyde for continuous relishing.

                                                The fight is getting ugly as exhaustion causes Kastigir and Hyde to stumble, minus one each. Methos manipulates combatants and lets Nefertiri at Larca. Plus one for her, plus one for Methos.

                                                  oops, unintentional, was probably thinking ahead.
