Little promo-get together idea I had.

What room would YOU(general) like to see this happen in?

Okay, folks. Here's the skinny.


For ages and ages, since the dawn of DoS, there have been, for lack of a better word, some duels that went into the risque end of the spectrum. Strip-dueling, betting for bedmates, jell-o duels, whatever. My thoughts on the subject are as follows:


Do people still want to do these sorts of things?


Would silly-fun little duels involving a little nudity and/or skimp attire draw in participants?


Would YOU(general) like to get your feet wet in finding out what the duels are all about?


And so, I propose this. Seeing as how "unofficial practice" dueling is entirely up to whomever might want to put in their two cents and say "send me moves, and we'll see who wins!", I say let's put on a nifty night of anything-goes marti ... wait. I mean, no-holds-barred dueling. Want to aim for clothing cuts instead of blood and guts? Do it. Put a little twist on flipping a jab by adding an ass-grab? Make it so. Sending a long-range screaming orgasm to make the fireball fizzle? Cameras out!


I, personally, volunteer to UNOFFICIALLY (meaning they won't be for standings purposes, just fun and games and a bit of practice or bragging rights) call said duels. Maybe make a night of it, like after-hours when the regular stuff's out of the way (if anyone wants to stay up that late). Anytime Thursday thru Saturday, I'm mostly free and clear, though if anyone else wants to get in on this, have at it.


This is the disclaimer: Any and all duels called on GR will NOT be counted for official standings purposes. Any and all duels MUST adhere to the guidelines and rules set by the administrators and staff of Greater Realms. Availability of callers is on a volunteer basis only. Matrices for all three duels can be found here: http://www.duelingzone.com/dz/tools/ Godmoding/trollish behavior will NOT be tolerated. We're adults here, let's keep things consensual and civil. Dueling is fun! Your mileage may vary.

I would be up for taking part in OR calling these whenever I wind up being available for it (dust off the ol' Mart perhaps, because him calling these duels would be comic gold)

And it would make Darcy able to schedule an event and have callers and stuff and make it happen for rizzles, my sizzles.

Just some things:

[list type=decimal]
[*]I love this.
[*]Any one who wants to call it can create the room. A player who creates a room gets special room-mod privileges for that room, so long as they are in it.
[*]Player made rooms don't have the logs show up in our fancy log reader here: http://www.gr.2phatgeeks.com/prochatrooms/logs/, which means if there's a duel in a player made room, if they get kicked, they can't check the live logs to see what they missed and we have no /back function (because our logs in that link update live.) So you may want to:
[*]Think of a setting for a room for this so it can be part of the logging or
[*]Set up a player created room and warn players about no /back function, having to copy paste their own logs and losing all the things if they get logged out/kicked/lagged
[*]I can happily look into making some awards for these events if they go foward/enough interest is expressed in them
[/list]

Maybe set it in the Wench, or Delver's as an exhibition? Or, take over the room and post a description of another setting so there will be logging and it'll be all good.


Hells, that could and would work for pretty much any room. Kaos is on a not-so-busy street, could do a block party kind of thing and run it that way as well.


Sounds like an absolute blast!

Put up a poll so that folks can express their opinions. And I'm totally loving the enthusiasm!


Also, don't be shy about coming up with possible side-settings! Bets on the Wheel O' Anti-Inhibition? Lingerie Wrestling? Slip n' Slide? Go wild!

Okay, since my brain has free time at work while my feet are busy, here's what I came up with for ring ideas. Keeping it to four right now, since I don't know how my IM managing skills on here are just yet.


1: Anti-gravity Chamber. Situated near the ceiling in the center of the room, this ring is a sure-fire way to get yourself noticed! Doubly so when kilts or skirts are involved!


2: Pit o' Mud: Now with 100% less weevils! It took some time to get the consistency just right, to stick to the body but not cover up a damn thing!


3: (Kiddie) Pool: Specially enchanted to change the liquid inside to match the desires of the combatants, within reason. Wrestling in beer's one thing, but ix-nay on battling in the blood of sanctified elven virgins! Sal, this means you ... I'm kidding.


4: Everyone's favorite, the Dance Floor! Get down and funky with your bad selves, duking it out to some wicked fat beats!


Anyone else have any thoughts?

....Stripper pole duels?

Jousting with hilariously innapropriate objects while their loyal "steeds" the jousters ride on are the shoulders of someone? (Where steeds get points for winning like their jousters?)

If I think of anything else I'll be back!

Wet t-shirt Dueling. Like the pool only... well, gotta wear that t-shirt. :) And the water should be chilled.

Boooooooo, no Elven virgin blood. I think the kiddie pool should be more like... A 16" deep wading pool that's like 30x30-ft or a 30-ft circle.

In fact, I think that's a fair assessment for all of the rings.

I also suggest a 'rainstorm' ring where it's set up to just rain and make things wet. :D

I ALSO PROPOSE THIS:

The FUNDERDOME
The FUNDERDOME (always capitalized) is a new, unrecognized (officially speaking) dueling venue and recreation center housed in the heart of... Well, nobody's quite sure! The main building is, of course, located in the city proper and those with the ability to see through magics with any degree of effort can determine which of the locations happen to be the actual FUNDERDOME, but a number of warehouse-sized buildings have been purchased and built up with Gate doors leading to the actual location! The 'shell' buildings serve as storage facilities holding the extra equipment for The FUNDERDOME.

The building itself is built after the fashion of the other dueling venues of Rhy'din with natural wood, sturdy construction, plenty of rafters for the shadow-friendly and a second level balcony. The interior dimensions are akin to a massive rectangle. A staircase from the entrance (along one of the short sides) leads down along terraces that line the walls, with tables upon them, to 'the pit'.

In the pit, coffee tables, couches, wing-backs, beanbags and the huge stretch of the bar run through the floor, as well as eight dueling rings which are in near-constant configuration shifts to accommodate for the huge variety in types of duels available. The pit is also where the spiral staircases leading to the balcony level and catwalks are situated; six of them in total.

Some say that for the children at heart, there's even a ball pit ring. Others say that's stupid, and that there's obviously a ball pit ring, right there for that matter, and it's for Dueling pros to leave their children in while they get their fight on! Caretakers (all living, of course) watch the kids and make sure they have fun while parents practice! (DUELY DAYCARE HOURS 8am-3pm M-F NO EXCEPTIONS*)

Underneath the Terraces directly across from the offices are the owner and administrative/caller staff offices. Beneath the terraces to the right of the entrance are the locker rooms, showers, and restrooms (most of which are co-ed, but there are individual dressing rooms and door-stalls of every type to suit every level of prim or proper a patron may require!). Under the terraces to the left of the entrance lie the kitchen and labor staff rooms.

*No exceptions made due to the nature of the duels that may and will take place after Duely Daycare hours. To alleviate the worries of parents of the sanctity of their children, an expert team of cleaning magi are in The FUNDERDOME'S employ. No worries!

The Owner
The owner of The FUNDERDOME is a rather unassuming fellow, an Elf just over five feet in height and with an uncanny talent for the development and maintenance of dueling rings who goes by the name of Mart Di'luna.

The twentieth Keeper of Earth in the Duel of Magic and the very soul behind the development of the Keeper and Archmage rings, Mart has decided to break out of his self-imposed retirement and life of only working on maintaining the Keeper rings, and to branch out and try something new. Ensorcelled by the different rings available in the Duel of Fists, Mart opened up The FUNDERDOME as a place in which duelists could get in practice for their official duels while simultaneously being able to train in different types of environments in any way they wish! Though he himself gets a little red in the ears from the antics of his patrons, he accepts that in the end, through all the extremes, it's all in good FUN.

Rumors has it the funding for The FUNDERDOME'S construction and initial payroll came almost exclusively through talks with one Khoom Helston, avid duelist, exhibitionist, High Priest of Chryrie, ring-carrying Helston and local Blue Mage.

The Help
Sheridan Driscol, or as you duelists may know him THE FABULOUS DRIS has signed on with his longtime friend to manage The FUNDERDOME and, should the whim strike him, lend his voice to call duels!

Thorn, Rhy'din's own rockin' redneck beauty, has signed on with Mart to work The FUNDERDOME'S bar on Tuesdays and Wednesdays!

Of course Khoom Helston, hitherto mysterious benefactor in the conception and construction of The FUNDERDOME has signed on with Mart to call duels Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings! Come and get it, ladies and gents!

For now, the general maintenance and janitorial help consists of a number of techmaturgical, gem-powered bots and a few rather personable Elves, though the bots run the bar when a 'tender isn't present.

Whispers hear tell of Mart in talks with a number of his old dueling acquaintances to secure management, callers and 'tenders for the venue.

Who Can Use This Setting?
Anyone! In forums, in chat (if Mel makes this room for our dueling FUN!) or in your private sessions in IMs or whatever!

Can I Destroy Everything?
Technically, no! But you can sure try! The FUNDERDOME has so many layers of enchantment in it that any destruction rights itself within six hours, up to and including a thermonuclear detonation! BECAUSE FUN!

Can My Character Do Dirty Stuff or Violent Stuff?
ALL IS PERMITTED IN THE FUNDERDOME FOREVER. SEX AND VIOLENCE ARE ACCEPTABLE* PRACTICES.

*Outside of Duely Daycare hours, obviously. Unless Dris convinces Mart nobody's gonna bring their kids in and to just nix the offer.

Can My Character Work at The FUNDERDOME?
If you want to learn to call, or volunteer to tend at the bar, H TO THE F YEAH THEY CAN!

Can I Use This Setting Outside of RDI/GR/Whatever?
No please! It's my baby and it's set in Rhy'din! Otherwise, enjoy!


I propose that, and have spoken to all PCs in the description.
