« on: July 09, 2015, 05:55:52 pm »

Welcome potential castaways, to
Forum Survivor Season 3
I'll be your host, AHoppy, and I hope together we can make this the best season of Forum Survivor to date!

If you're interested in playing, please sign up here.  More rules and details will be given in the following posts.

For details on what Forum Survivor is, check out this post by AdamH (click)

Ideal start date: September 23, the day season 31 airs.  Signups will probably close a few days prior.  I'll let you know the closer it gets
Tentative start date: Wednesday, September 30

Additionally, I'm still looking for more people who might be willing to help out, be there to bounce ideas off of, etc.

Attention potential Forum Survivor Season 3:
We would like you to submit an audition tape for review prior to your participation in this season of Forum Survivor*. "But AHoppy," you say, "I don't want you creeps to see my face or hear my voice." Never fear! You are allowed to submit this audition "tape" in any format you wish! Whether it's a video, creative writing, interpretive dance, original artwork, whatever you feel moved to submit. Just make sure you answer the following question:

What makes you a true Survivor?

I'm giving you guys a lot of time to work on this, so I want some really good stuff.  Just submit your work via PM to me

*Submission of audition tape is not required, but strongly strongly** encouraged. Even if all you do is a sentence. All content submitted for audition tape becomes property of the Forum Survivor season 3 mods which they are free to distribute on the Dominion Strategy Forum (probably not until the season is over). All material will be kept to this thread in the forum games forum so it will not be accessible by the general public.

**(note the repetition. And the bold. Get my point yet?)

RULES OF THE GAME
Everyone playing should have already received a survey in a QuickTopic known as your confessional.  This is where you can post anything you want.  The more you talk here, the more interesting it is for moderators and spectators, and itís a good place to collect your thoughts.  There is no restriction on when or how many times you can post here.  This is also the place to give me feedback on the game.  I welcome any and all feedback and I promise I wonít bite. I will be monitoring these threads (I have email notifications on for them) so this is the best way to reach me.

Additionally, each tribe will receive a QT including everyone in the tribe.  This is where you will be performing many challenges and any discussions with your whole tribe.  There may or may not be restrictions in posting here, depending on what is going on in the game
You will also receive a QT with each individual on your tribe.  Again, there may or may not be posting restrictions here depending on what is going on.

Some requests I have:  There will probably be challenges that involve puzzles or games or other googleable things.  I would like to ask that you refrain from googling solutions to puzzles or strategies for games And really, this is why youíre playing the game right? To play fun games and solve hard puzzles.  I appreciate how trusting this community can be, letís keep it that way. 

Finally, the moment youíve all been waiting for: We have a new and (hopefully) improved energy mechanic!

ENERGY
How this works: Energy is a percentage.  Everyone starts with 100% energy because you have all just gotten off the boat on this desert island, excited for the intense journey ahead of you.  Energy will be able to be spent on challenges for some benefits.  The Catch: Everyone loses some amount of energy by participating in challenges.  At the beginning of a challenge I will tell you how much energy you will be losing.  eg. youíll lose 10% points in this challenge.  This is not a multiplication, just a subtraction.  So if youíre at 100%, youíll be down to 90%.  If youíre at 90%, youíll be down to 80%.

MORALE
More new stuff! While everyone has their own individual energy totals, we have a new tribe-wide mechanic this time around called Morale.  This might get a bit complicated, but you guys are all smart, so  I think you guys can handle it.  Your teamís morale is based on a scale from -50% to +50%.  RIght now, you guys are pretty unsure about each other and pretty wary already, so your morale is at 0% right now.  Things that will improve your morale:  Winning rewards challenges, getting fire, building shelter, etc.  Things that will make your tribe in general happier.  Things that degrade your morale: Losing challenges, blindsides at tribal council, low tribe energy levels, etc. 

Now Iím sure youíre all asking ďwhat does this crazy tribe morale mechanic actually do?Ē  Morale is a whole tribe attribute that modifies all individual energy gains and losses.  The formula for this is (energy change + |energy change| * (morale-as-decimal))  So, using the example above, say your tribeís morale is at -30%.  When you lose 10 energy after the challenge, instead you lose 13 energy! (-10 + |-10| * -.3 = -13).  Say the other tribe is at their max morale, +50%, instead they lose 5 energy (-10 + |-10| * .5 = -5).  For gaining energy, the tribe at morale of -30%, gaining 10 energy, instead they only gain 7 (10 + |10| * -.3 = 7), whereas the tribe at +50% morale would gain 15 energy! (10 + |10| * .5 = 15).  I hope all of that made sense.  Any rounding will be done in your favor.

For anyone else, such a statement would be a scum tell.  For Hydrad, it's simply a tell that you're reading something from Hydrad.

Anybody want to help test-solve logic puzzles?  It could be helpful knowing what people think of them, and if they think difficulty level is good and such.  You can say here or PM me if you want to (you can't play if you test-solve, of course).  I've already made a couple of the puzzles.
