Chapter 2 - The Balance Wanes

 

    Not short of the first of skirmishes did The Great Bear begin to see the mass of armies along his castle walls, costing a few carved bricks in the first wave.  The Horde had struck first damage to House of Targaryen, along with The Old War Horse, as the Horde's rogue forces had drawn The Bear's allies into unfair battles.  The Great Bear was not to stand for that.  Within daylight The Bear had summoned elite armies to wipe aside King Saliva's fray armies to give room to The Legion's full force assault on the castle of Vaes Dothrak, but the fog of war, and the early untrained armies of all sides muttered in one another's way.  By night's end, little headway had been gained by either side.

 

    It was the Champion Battle of Kings that would greatly determine the outcome of army victories and castle destruction within the second stance of the war.  While the Dragon's armies seethed at victories, The Needle would again fall in king combat, but this time to The Shark's King, leaving the castle of Salvage Yard again unscathed by The Dragon's assault.  The Shark's King gained the great advantage of stirring his troop's moral, and his battalion within the Salt Shores sent another shock of stones into the walls of the Wizard's tower.  In the second champion battle of the day was J. Aaron Stark, True King of the North, and the Dothraki King Saliva. 

 

    The Halls had shifted The Stark's focus on King's Landing and away from The Walls of Worknman in a daring move to join battle against The House of Targaryen.  Either king could gain  in the champion battle , but one would have his forces thrown from victory and have his castle exposed.  The Dothraki King prevailed on the field and thus cut short The Legion's push into Vaes Dothrak by The Great Bear and The Wizard.  But in the battle a single brick had fallen from Saliva's castle.  His eyes turned worried... it would only be the first.  The Dragon only grows stronger, and it was only a matter of time.

 

   The breath of diplomatic winds had played across the north and had garnered the ear of The Young Brave.  Swamp Castle ordered the armies of Flint Cliffs to invade into King's Landing, leaving behind the shores of Braavos, only as The Shark sent clear warning of the previous strategy with a barrage closely deflected by the Flint Cliff's defense.   The balance of war began to play out, the balance of peace only a razor's edge.  The war had just begun, the alliances just formed, and armies would only grow stronger.  Tremendous destruction could be heard just on the horizon.

ARCHIVE -

 

April 22, 2018

 

Spawned from the fields of giants and dwarves, and the blistering flames of mechanized war, comes a new Botton Banner challenge!  In this epic battle for a Botton Banner you will march divisions of armies across the lands to lay waste to your opposing foe, while trying to out live your adversaries behind a fragile castle of stone!  Each manager entering will create three new fighters within the welterweight division and put them on manual schedule until further notice.  One fighter will represent your King, while the other two will represent your two division of armies that you will use to occupy other contender's lands to pummel at a castle until it is destroyed and the king harboring within is eliminated from the game along with his invading armies.

 

Multiple armies from different challengers can occupy a king's land and team up to crush the castle to the ground, and armies may be split among two fronts and to give their ruling king two challengers to wipe from the game.  These armies can become more powerful over time and their score will be based on their rating and the results of their weekly bouts.

 

.5 x rating for Decision wins

.75 x rating for KO wins

1 x rating for TKO wins

 

The amount of Hit Points for each castle the armies will be facing against will be determined by how many entries the contest receives.  This will allow a formulation of how long the contest will play out.  The fighter designated as the King will be able to defend some hit points being waged against his castle on a weekly basis, but he is not too powerful as he only blocks a set amount of points, ...but he will be useful in the early part of the game.

 

Decision win blocks - 1 HP

KO win blocks - 2 HP

TKO win blocks 3 HP

 

This is a mockup version of the map that depicts the action of the contest.  Each color will correlate to its entry manager.  The movement of the armies will be allowed by simply entering the name of the land that you want your armies to occupy before fight time of the welterweight division in the "Game of Thrones Begins" thread in the forum.  The armies will remain in that land until you choose to move them again before the weekly welterweight results.

 

The game will continue until there is one last castle standing among the lands, and that manager will be the ruler of The Game of Thrones Botton Banner! 

 

To enter, create three welterweight divisional fighters and place them on manual schedule.  Announce your entry into the "Game of Thrones Begins" thread within the forum section and designate which fighter will be your king and which two fighters will be your armies.  Keep these armies and king new and fresh until the contest begins, this will be announced when there are a sufficient amount of entries. 

 

May 4 (be with you), 2018

 

A couple of clarifications on the current aspects of the game.  Armies are allowed to move to any land you wish them to by announcing their movement in the "Game of Thrones Begins" thread.  There is no specific path of movement they must follow to get to the lands you want your armies to occupy.  You can even split the armies among two different lands.  The weekly fights of the King and Armies will be every Thursday night. Announcing your armies movements prior to the fight results of Thursday will move those armies to the lands specified in your post, and for any strategy sake you can announce their movements moments before the Thursday night fight results, any announcement after that specific time; which is also time stamped within the forum thread; will be moved to those lands for the following week, unless again announced otherwise.  Consider the announcement of the movements of your armies in the thread as the politics of the game, as alliances will most likely form behind the scenes, and eventually turn on one another, and multiple relocation of armies may happen.  If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

 

After some consideration about the amount of managers we have signed up and the run length of the contest, each castle will start with 50 Hit Points (HP).

 

Let's sprinkle in some more dynamics to the game, and really add some ambition to my weekly scoring and updates.  I will try to have a new update every Sunday that will follow the story line of the contest, from the weekly bouts to the movement of armies, and upcoming fights from the Saturday night scheduling.  If you found I have made a mistake, let me know as soon as you can and I will correct it.

 

King Head to Head (H2H) - While the King is not very powerful in the long aspects of the game, he will be a great influence on not only your weekly hopes of additional modifiers but also have a huge affect of the weekly contest results if he comes head to head with another king.  In H2H match ups of the kings, the winning king will have his army's damage results doubled (x2) as the affect of the king's win bolsters your army's will! The losing king's armies will have have any damage nullified (0) for that week as the losing king will deplete his army's confidence. 

 

King's Army Modifiers - The king's influence on his armies will grow with every consecutive win the king can muster.  The following modifiers will be added to the score damage of an army onto the castle the army is warring against.  These will be accumulative, meaning, each success will be added to the damage an army can inflict on a castle.  These modifiers are only gained by king wins and not army wins, but affect your army's damage capability.

 

(W)

3 Wins in a Row = +.25

4 Wins in a Row = +.75

5 Wins in a Row = + 1

Total of +2 Possible

(K)

3 KO/TKO Wins in a Row = +.50

4 KO/TKO Wins in a Row = + 1

5 KO/TKO Wins in a Row = + 2

Total of +3.5 Possible

Grand Total of +5.5 Possible

 

White Walkers -  When a castle is destroyed (0 HP) the king is dead.  While the dead king will have very little impact on the contest other than playing spoiler from the grave on the hopes of other's armies and king victories, the armies of the dead king will turn into White Walkers, meaning that they'll still act as armies on the map, and can even be moved by their undead leader to whichever lands they want to occupy by continued announcements in the thread.  While all modifiers will be removed from the now White Walking army, they'll still be able to score damage on a castle they are attacking each week.  So while you may be out of the contest with a dead king, your White Walking army can still affect the game significantly.

Decision Win = 1

KO Win = 2

TKO Win = 3

 

Dragon Glass - What's a live king to do in the face of the growing undead armies of the White Walkers?  Collect Dragon Glass!  For each weekly roust from a leader, meaning that both the king and his two armies all grab a win that week, one piece of Dragon Glass will be collected.  For each piece of Dragon Glass collected is one damage point deflected from White Walkers on the king's castle (-1).

 

Dragon - What would a game of thrones be without dragons?  A very powerful beast can be mustered from a spectacular accomplishment!  Win all bouts with your king and armies in TKO fashion in one week and a dragon will be spawned to do your bidding!  Each dragon can be wielded as a defender of a castle if held at the king's side, deflecting five points from any damage from armies or White Walkers received on the king's castle that week (-5).  Or if chosen to be moved with an army, can inflict an extra five damage points on an opposing king's castle (+5).  If chosen to move with an army, announce which army you wish it merge with in the "Game of Thrones Begins" thread if you control such a beast.  The dragon will stay with that army unless announced differently.  The army that the dragon has joined with must win that week for the damage of the dragon to be added to the total damage done on a castle.  Multiple dragons can join with a single army, if multiple dragons have been spawned.

 

There will be no weekly missions in this contest other than the additional modifiers and accomplishments already listed.  While I'll try to take care of the scoring the best I can, just remember it all is as easy as winning each week, and announcing which lands you want your armies to occupy, but if you find I've made a mistake, let me know as soon as possible and I'll correct it.  If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll answer them as immediately as I can.

 

WINTER IS COMING!

 

May 6, 2018

 

    The World was within the midst of a long summer.  Peace and tranquility admired the lands, but an unrest among the powerful leaders grew as the hints of winter's coming put into motion the gears of war.  The Iron Throne remained vacant, and those who lusted for its seat gathered their armies and proclaimed their kings.  For it was the Iron Throne they sought, and once claimed, would endow their king as ruler of all the lands.  The drums pounded, horns blared, and the stomping march of armies shook the lands.  A great war would ensue, and the first of battles would rage.  What would come of Westseros and Essos?  The tides of time would only tell.

 

H2H - Aryas Sword VS J. Aaron "True King of the North" Stark

Chapter 1 - The World Divides

 

    It was a world of nine kingdoms.  Nine powerful houses formed along the population and then coalesced into war.  Within the heart of Westeros was King's Landing and the domain of Dodgeball, The Great Bear, and the Targaryen family.  Along the north, Winterfell, and The Halls, family of the Starks, and the true rulers of The North.  Within the south Salt Shores, The Wizard, House of Z, the realm of champions and the ghosts of kings.  Guarding the great northern wall stood Castle Black, The Walls of Worknman, The Boot, and the summoned army of the walking dead.  Sunk into the shore of Flint Cliffs harbored The Lair of KanLaw, home of The Young Brave and Swamp Castle.  Perched along the west coast of Westeros was Duke of Dorkdom, Casterly Rock and stable of The Old War Horse, flanked to the east by DTG's Dungeon, land of Dragonstone, The Dragon and the wickets of war.  In the dust bowl of Essos, Vaes Dorthrak, The Salvage Yard, ruler of clubs, seller of goats.  To the north, the Lands of Shark, Braavos, The Shark, Champion of Giants. 

 

    It was the Dothraki Horde which first sounded the cries of battle as their king proclaimed that the true threat of the lands would be in the heart of Westeros, with in the heart of King's Landing.  The Shark of Essos followed, but diverted an army to the Salt Shores to also lay siege on the House of Z.  Upon seeing the move into Westeros by the armies of Essos, The Wizard retaliated upon the gates of Vaes Dothrak with full force of his champion army, and within time, The Great Bear and The Dragon would follow.  North Westeros caved in on itself, as the armies within the cold lands lashed out at one another.  The Boot invaded into the Lair of KanLaw, as The Halls sent the Stark family north to The Walls of Worknman.  KanLaw, The Young Brave, sailed across The Narrow Sea to lay purchase on the Lands of Shark.  Only the Old War Horse held out his true intentions until the battles began to wage.

 

    As what would come to be known as The Legion of Legends; The Great Bear, The Wizard, and The Dragon; shook the ground and unsettled the dust within the waste lands of Vaes Dothrak, poised to submit great damage to the castle of Salvage Yard. The thrust of the great army of The Legion onto the borders of Vaes Dothrak would sure set the first of steps for The Legion's domination of the world.  But as the battle waged, The Legion found themselves pushed up to a wall of unfortunates.  The Dothraki King was surprisingly strong and held back the forces of The Great Bear and The Wizard.  The Dragon faced another threat, a Champion fight with the king of Winterfell and the outcome would determine which king's forces would rule the day, and which king's forces would mire in defeat. 

 

    The Needle of The Dragon proved to be no match for the true king of the north, J. Aaron Stark and the first of head to head battles would go to the empty handed forces of The Halls.  The Dragon's forces, while professing victory, would have those victories stripped from their hands, leaving the castle of Salvage Yard free of damage within the first battles.  Saliva, the king of Dothrak, climbed to the peak of his walls and thrown over a carcass of a goat and roared, "How'd you like them goats?"

 

    In the heart of Westeros, the Dothraki Horde and an army of The Shark waged against the brick and mortar of King's Landing.  The Horde proved to be savage, but even more damage would come to the House of Targaryen.  From the west shores of Westeros the roaring thunder of hooves struck path to King's Landing and joined carnage with the goat herders of Essos and put claim on the lands of The Great Bear.  The Old War Horse had sought to gain counter on The Great Bear as his eyes were set to the east at Essos.

 

    The first of skirmishes would prove to have little to none affect, but the first of alliances would set the division among the world.  The world was at war, winter was coming, and the Iron Throne remained vacant.
