Rings of Power (Evolving Storyline Series) Assassin / Terminator Congratulations to the winner - DaveH Details:
As your crew settle down after a harrowing return to Archenland to collect further cargo you decide to seek a tavern for refreshment at the Puerto Ventura Space Port.
This is when your adventure truly begins ..
Long into the night, after countless beverages your new drinking companion continues his fantastic mythical tale of the origin of the ancient worlds and energy gateways between the worlds.
As your cloaked companion begins to tell you of the Rings of Power harnessing the energy gateways, the rise of the Lords of Shadow and the Time Lords' attempts to protect the Rings, darkness falls suddenly upon the spaceport.
"Quickly, as expected I did, coming here the dark hour is, descended the Lords of Shadow have, flee we must, and forces rally we must, to hold back them."
Confused, you flee back to your armoured cargo fleet with your friend, dodging between the throng of screaming frantic people on the dark city streets.
Once aboard you take off, following your friend's advice to seek a safe haven .....
show: The Evolving Storyline ....
... You soon realise that the Lords of Shadow have their forces everywhere - to escape Archenland you must first fight, and defeat as many of them as possible with the meagre troops you have ...
... Having escaped the chaos on Archenland, you are advised to head for Mote where your friend has contacts that may be able to amass a rebellion force to rise against the Lords of Shadow. On arriving at the spaceport of Mote City Metropolis, your friend sson learns that the Lords of Shadow have their spies hidden in the city. You join forces with your friend's allies and seek out the enemy ... Now that you have removed the Dark Lords forces and developed a strong rebel alliance on Mote, your firend advises you further: "The Dark Lords, close they are, the Rings of Power, to taking all. Come to us word has, that lay siege they do, to the planet Midgard. Midgard on it, one of the last rings does lie." "Our work far from done is my friend." 'Oh no, these Dark Lords are everywhere', you think to yourself. "Aware of our rebellion they are. Siege they lay unto the planet Atlantis, home of freedom and humanity. Their spies within Atlantis find we must, before too late it is." Your friend receives a communication and signals he once again has an important message for you and your allied comrades. "The Dark Lords Great Armies they ammass. Journey we must to the worlds of Loki and Discworld. For there, breeding of Warriors the Dark Lords make. Stop them we must before too late it is. Our duty be it" Discworld Loki (First Age) "Communication further received have I. Dark Lords stronger than expected they are. Breeding of Warriors armies they still are - to Thor journmey we must and out them wipe. Also, scouting parties they have sent for seeking the lost Rings of Power they are - on Planet Earth and hidden deep in Earth's Solar System. Not yet done our work is my friend." Thor (First Age) Earth (First Age) Solar System Your friend beams a huge smile, and almost has a prophetic glint in his shining eyes as he tells you: "Alliance strong it now is and Dark Lords weak they are. But vanquish them from the First World, Amanecer, we must, before the One Ring find they do. Then rid them from the known Galaxy and defeat them on their home planet Draknor we can. Freedom once again in the Galaxy reign it will." Amanecer Space Trade Network Draknor Draknor Amanecer Atlantis Discworld Earth

This tournament is another in a series of ‘evolving storyline’ tournaments I am releasing (terminator / assassin). Success in each round will lead to the next challenge, which will be revealed later . . .
It is open to all players with a decent attendance record (see below). Freemiums welcome although up to three-games-at-a-time.
show: Tournament Format and Points System
In Phase I, 24 players will play 3 matches in 6 groups of 4 players.
In Assassin games, the winning player will score 4 points. Other surviving players will score 1 point. In Terminator games, the winning player will score 2 points. All players will also score 1 point for each termination (terminating a deadbeat does not score however). The top 2 players from each group will progress to the next round.* The third-placed players will then play a play-off against another third-placed player, with the winner also progressing to the next round. This play-off will use the same map and settings as the final game of the first phase. In Phase II, 15 players will play 3 matches in 3 groups of 5 players. Points scoring will be as above. The top 3 players from each group will progress to the next round.* The fourth-placed players will then play a play-off against the other two fourth-placed players, with the winner also progressing to the next round. This play-off will use the same map and settings as the final game of the first phase. In Phase III, 10 players will play 3 matches in 2 groups of 5 players. Points scoring will be as above. The top 2 players from each group will progress to the next round.* The third-placed players will then play a play-off against another third-placed player, with the winner also progressing to the next round. This play-off will use the same map and settings as the final game of the first phase. In the Final Phase, 5 players will play 3 matches. Points scoring will be as above. The player with most points will be declared the winner. In the event of players finishing with equal points, a tie-break match will be played. * If necessary players will also be compared on the number of terminations, then number of rounds survived in the phase in question. If this does not prove to determine qualifying players then a tie-break match will occur.
Fog of War will be present in some battles whilst others will be sunny according to situation of the storyline.
Spoils and reinforcements will also be of varying nature, according to the storyline. (Other settings will be Assassin or Terminator, Sequential, Automatic)
Players must have 3 free slots at all times.
Players must also have a 95%+ attendance record and have completed 25 matches.
All reserves will be sent a PM when an opening occurs. The first reserve to respond will gain a place.
After the first round, player(s) who were closest to qualifying will be the first to be invited as reserve(s). Again, the first reserve to respond will gain a place.
show: Build-Up Matches
In Terminator matches, the position of players at the end of 23 rounds will determine how they score (e.g. the number of terminations achieved at this point). In Assassin matches, each player scores 1 point if there is no result at the end of 23 rounds, and in 1 v 1 games neither player scores. The remainder of such games then becomes a CC-points-only affair.
show: Play Offs and Tie Breaks
One-match play-offs or tie-breaks will use the same map as the final match of the phase in question. Escalating spoils will be implemented, along with a 20 round limit.
If the tie-break game determines more than one qualifier then the winner will qualify as well as the player amongst the losers with the most terminations. If this is equal, then finishing position will determine the 2nd (or 3rd) qualifier.
show: The Draw
Players’ groupings / opponents will be determined by random.org.
show: Missing Turns
If a player misses a turn then he cannot score any points in the game in question (or loses if the game is a tie-break / play-off). If a player deadbeats at any stage then he will be ejected from the tournament.
show: Joining Matches
Players will be informed when they have a match and will have 24 hours to join. If they fail to do so then they will be ejected from the tournament and a reserve will replace them.
First Turn Fog of War Courtesy Rule
The player who goes first in round 1 must either wait 10 hours before taking their turn, or inform their opponent(s) in game chat of any regions conquered during their first move, and where from. Failure to do either will mean the player in question is unable to score any points in the game.
