Force your characters to fight each other. For fun.

This is collaborative competition in which the participants pit their original characters against each other in combat. Players exchange moves (in comic, written, animated, or illustrated form) until a victor is determined or the round ends. [Comicfury veterans might recognize this as a modified version of the Character Battles of yore.]


image

>Participating characters will be matched with an opponent in 1 v 1 combat. The victors of each round will advance to the next.
>Moves can take the form of comics, written pieces, animations, illustrations, or other creative works. This is not supposed to be stressful; scribbly, sketchy art is welcome and even encouraged.
>Each character must make a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 10 moves per round or they will be disqualified from the tournament.
>Each round will last a month. Round one will begin on January 20th.
>Victory will be determined based on either the events of the combat, the assessment of a judge (if the outcome of the combat is not conclusive or the competitors are in disagreement), or through automatic disqualification (if a move has not been made by the deadline).
>When the victor is determined by a judge (ie me), the judgement will be based on the creativity and quality (technical, artistic, and storytelling) of the moves, rather than on the raw stats of the characters.
>For the first round contestants will be matched based on their power level (as estimated based on their character sheet or applicant questions).
>The move order of opponents will be assigned at the beginning of each round (through random number generator) but opponents are free to flip the assigned move order if they are mutually in agreement.
>Each battle will take place in a unique arena with its own hazards and quirks. The arenas will be revealed and assigned at the beginning of round one (on on January 20th).
>Characters of all power levels are welcome to join. Note that competing with an extremely powerful character might be less fun, but the choice is yours. Its the creativity and quality of the moves that will be judged rather than the power of the characters.
>All powers, skills, tools, and weapons that your character uses in combat must be listed in their application. No sudden invulnerability to lava should be popping up mid battle. And no calling on outside help; during combat your character will have access to any items on their person and nothing more.
>Don't take liberties with the actions of your opponent's characters. It wouldn't be unreasonable to depict a speedy opponent dodging a blow your character attempts to deliver, but when it comes to the moves they make, that's in the hands of their creator.
>If there's disagreement over the fairness of a move bring it to the judge (me) for resolution.
>The object of this tournament is to have fun. Approach this as a collaboration and not just a competition.
>For pragmatic reasons, characters that lose their round, but that preform well may be entered into the following round (or their creator may be given the option to enter a different character).This is a long game and its highly likely that participants will drop out.
Players may also vote on this optional rule:
>Injuries that are sustained in the first round will carry over into later rounds, and expended resources will remain expended. [VOTE]

That looks pretty good!
The only question I have is about Neecra's powers; can you explain what his mental powers are in a bit more detail? Is he telepathic? Telekenetic? Or are his mental powers something else?

@Tom Street: Oh, so you aren't sure what his mental powers are?
Even if you haven't figured out what his official powers are going to be in your comic, you should decide on some specific powers just for this tournament. Characters with telepathic powers can usually do one or more of the following: read minds (with or without consent), create telepathic links that allow silent communication across distances, and/or deal psychic damage. Do any of those sound right to you?

@Zero Hour: Yes, that looks good.
