Registrations are in! 50 of them. Only one soul can win- the victor gets their character featured on a card in our upcoming game. And oh, what characters...

We have tricksters, anarchists, ex-police, guys, gals, charmers, thugs, musicians, mercenaries, geomancers, strippers, brutal weapons, creative powers... All on a collision course.

I can't wait to see these versus matches.

I've just finished e-mailing instructions to all of the players. Tomorrow I'll post a sample battle between Mace and Ravat, so you can see what the voting process looks like.

And now- our illustrious contestants.

Below is the schedule for Bracket-1 battles. Due to the number of contestants, the vote battles will last only 24 hours- match results will be announced as the next match launches. Check the #Dreamkeepers hashtag to see if contestants are sharing additional incentives or barbs.

And last but not least, an introduction to the characters themselves:

(Edit- Update below:  Handling Byes.)
Because odd numbers exist, some brackets a contestant will proceed without battling, or be given a 'bye.'  Selection for byes will be handled in the following manner after every bracket of fights:   
1) We assign a point value to victories. [Winners vote number]/[losers vote number] = points.
So, for example, someone winning with 100 votes over their opponent's 50 votes would have 200%, or 200 points.
2) The winner with the highest points gets the bye. If there is a tie for points, we coin toss until the bye is given to one player.
3) Repeat as needed after brackets that result in an odd number of winners.

Here's a question do the fights take place in a proper ring or stadium or do we get to decide where they take place because, that would be a little unfair for the opponent. 

Here's an example Keeper one is hiding in the rubble of the old warehouse building watching keeper 2 who is looking for keeper 1, not knowing they're being watched. Keeper 1 tosses a rock and leads keeper 2 on a wild goose chase exhausting him. Keeper one well rested then leaps from the shadows pummeling the crap out of keeper 2

We don't specify a setting- so the players battling can just write whatever they like.  

Two contestants may collaborate and agree upon a shared setting, or they can write completely different scenarios without consulting one another.    It will be up to voters to decide which scenario they like the best.

yoooo my man, :icondragonman1997:, think you can find a picture of what an automated chain Osteotome is or looks like? Been having trouble of finding one that is consistent, though the wiki says it is basically a small chainsaw? idk lol
Reply
:icondragonman1997:
dragonman1997 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
The osteotome as I depict it is basically a four foot chainsaw on magical steroids... I just used the word osteotome to fit into the Dreamkeepers universe.
Sorry if you feel royally screwed... Wink/Razz  I have faith that your character can pull through.
This will be just as hard for me as it is for you as I'm trying to keep the fight fair, which is odd considering the differences between our characters...Sweating a little... 

Quick question: What's your character's favorite citrus fruit?
Reply
:iconkhvathiel:
KHVathiel Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Uh...oranges. it would be oranges, since it's the only one I eat irl xD is the osteotome battery powered or is it all manual? As for your char, is he a brute fighter, does he fight with class or is rvery move alow and calculated until it's unleashed? My char is a runner. She thinks on her feet, but is uh...a bit screwed otherwize lol. She's not that good at planning ahead in the long run or looking before she leaps. But otherwise she is a bit like mace and namah in that department. Good luck!

:icondragonman1997:
dragonman1997 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
Regarding oranges - thank you for that. 
On the osteotome, it's actually magic(ish) and I use that term loosely because it's ancient weapon that fell out of use after the "nightmare wars" ended.
He's true to the story. He's tactical, calculated, brutal, but wise. He only kills people who need killing, hence being the Nightmare Slayer.
He's not an idiot, he knows when he's facing off against a skilled warrior and how to utilize their weaknesses and flaws to his advantage.
Flynn doesn't talk much as he tries not to waste words, but when he does talk, he makes every word count. He's clean cut, and not easily distracted by anything once he's engaged in battle. 

PS I already have the first draft of our battle. I believe I was fair with your character. I also enjoyed Vathiel's back story.

:iconkhvathiel:
KHVathiel Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
aww, thankies! <3 Well this puts me into a bit of a pickle tho...I was under the impression that his chainsaw (sorry if that irks you, I just feel like I'm mispelling it every time ;n; ) was electric or something xD if it truly is powered by magic only, then my assumption is either his Power is what activates it...or it has a magic battery, in which either case I am still gonna have to figure something out...or maybe not...see, Vathiel is an Alternate Universe version of my real sona heh. However, I didn't want to risk them being overpowering for the DK universe, hence why it specifically mentions fire and electricity in their BG. A tangent I know, but it's why this one is tricky, because while Vath's power is basically the ability to control high volumes of energy, just like magic, I limited it so that it's energies which are somehow in an active state. Hence a campfire or a live power line. Had I made it to be able to directly affect Powers, well it wouldn't be very interesting for many scenarios. Heh. i undersell myself, it's a bad habit. But I too already have my second...ish version of my story ready. Been bouncing ideas off of friends and some of my family to help me out here lol.

Vathiel truly is a weird character. They've based off of me, and yet...they really have taken a life and personality of their own. I know I really shouldn't be sharing so much, since it's basically giving you an advantage, but at the same time it gives me an advantage, likewise with you sharing :XD: Mmm...Time to go back to editing. I wonder if her Power should be really limited to just active energies or also capable of affecting Powers...but I'll go with what I gave Dave lol.

That's cool, you do you. Like I said, I give your character a completely fair fight based on what I think she can be capable of. Heck, I had Vathiel produce full on lightning bolts in my first draft... I might change that depending if it gets too long. But, I thought it was cool. :D (Big Grin)

As for swearing- yep, you're allowed.    And having battling characters insult each other is also allowed- I mean, considering the other things they're going to be doing to each other, Deadpool-esque quips are probably going to be the least of the damage.  

If there's anything that, for whatever reason, I think is a little too far, I'll contact you privately before your match and explain my thinking, so you would have time to change your battle-text.  

So, when in doubt- go for it!

We're sticking to the 300 word limit on Battle text, so voters can give it a quick read- and we can fit it onto our spiffy visual versus template.

But remember, every contestant can include one html link with their entry, so that could link to an entire novel if you wanted it to.  8 )

E-mail the final battle-text to us at least 48 hours before your match.   That gives me time to set it up, and stay organized.

As for exactly how the battles go, and what their outcome is- that's entirely up to what you'd like to write, and what voters choose.   E )

Death is an option.
