You're not out of the game Roadrunner, you just won't be able to partake in any discussion until the challenge.  During the challenge, you'll be allowed to talk in the tribe QT but you won't be able to talk individually or rest/gather/build.  As far as thematic, you're skyping into the challenge, ok?  Skype is our sponsor.  It works ok?

Speaking of challenge, You've got treemail!

Some say money makes the world go 'round
But territory used to rule the day.
The tribe who can manage both will be crowned
the other tribe, (insert Probst cliché)

You can spend energy on this challenge, in any increment. But you only receive benefit for every 30 energy your tribe spends as a whole

This also marks the beginning of a resting/gathering/shelter period.

I forgot to mention:
The Hovel's are very disappointed at their second defeat.  Their morale drops to -5!  However, their team member's attractiveness brings their morale to +5. 
Necropolis' are quite happy about their victory even though they appeared to be at a great disadvantage.  They gain 5 morale putting their morale at 24!

If you're looking at your energy and are confused as to why the "Adj" column might not have the correct value in it.  That's because your total is calculated by summing up the "Adj" column, and if you hit your cap of 100 energy you only get the energy to get you to 100, not any of the energy that puts you over 100.  I feel like I've explained this poorly, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Skype is our sponsor.  It works ok?

In many past seasons Sprint has sponsored the show; some reward challenges are where you get to go on a picnic lunch and take lots of pictures with the newest Sprint phone that's so great. Then you look through the pictures or videos on the phone and find idol clues.

The challenges have Sprint all over them, it's adorably shameless when Probst keeps talking about how great Sprint is during the challenge.

Hopefully the ads for Skype are less shameless, or maybe you're just using the Skype app on your NEW SPRINT PHONE!!!!!

I will deduct energy spent on this challenge before the challenge starts. Finally, morale won't affect your energy expenditure. So say you're at 100 energy and you want to spend 50 and you're at 10 morale, you just spend 50 energy.

It has been brought to my attention that there has been some confusion regarding energy and the timing for its consumption. And rightly so, I don't think I've done a great job explaining that.  And it's been a WIP this whole time. So lets throw down some guidelines

For challenges, I will be making a post with your treemail before I introduce the challenge. 24 hours later (in general) I'll be making the challenge details announcement. Along with the treemail, you will be told the increments you can spend energy in. You have until the challenge details announcement to state how much energy you will be spending. This energy will be deducted at the beginning of the challenge.

The challenge details announcement will include the amount of energy participating in the challenge will cost you. This will be deducted at the end of the challenge.

Any energy or morale gains made during the challenge will not be totaled up until the end of the challenge. This is for my own sanity and for simplicity. So if you are below 50 at the start of the challenge, you will have the disadvantage for the whole challenge. Your energy gains and morale during the challenge will be totaled up before the deduction of the energy from participating in the challenge. If this total exceeds 100, the excess energy is just lost. And as I type this and think about it, I might not have done this completely right, because you should never be at 100 after a challenge. Since this is the case, I will be updating energy totals again tonight, and possibly even looking at the way I'm doing energy stuff. This will push back the immunity challenge details at least 1 day while I look into this. Sorry for the delay.

Ok, I've decided to stick with what I've been doing and I have correct energy totals.  They should all be accurate now.  So the gathering/resting energy will be gained before energy loss from participating in the challenge.  So really, you should never hit 100 energy after a challenge.

That this means is I want you all to re-confirm your energy expenditure on this challenge because your energy totals have changed.  Challenge will start in 24 hours.

COME ON IN GUYS!
Welcome Roadrunner, being broadcast to you live from exile island courtesy of our sponsor, Skype*!
Today's challenge is:
Coin Age!
Time for you guys to take control of the island we're stranded on! This challenge pits tribe against tribe in an epic battle.
Coin Age is an area control game. The map looks like this

Each tribe gets 10 coins: Four 1's, three 2's, two 3's, and one 4. At the beginning of the game they are all in your bank. Each coin has 2 sides: Hovel and Necropolis
At the beginning of your tribe's turn you take one of each coin that you have left in your bank and flip it (I'll do the coin flipping via our other sponsor, Random.org). Depending on how many coins flip to your tribe's side, you can preform different actions on the island of Coin Age:
# Matches   Action
4   Place 2 or pay 1 to place3
3   Place 2
2   Place 2
1   Place 1 and Move
0   Capture and Move

Place: Take one of the matching coins and place it on an empty space or on top of a coin of higher value.
Pay: Give one of your matching coins to the other tribe
Move: Move all the coins in any one space to an empty adjacent space
Capture: Remove a coin from the map and place it in your bank. The captured coin must be the only coin in the space, or the top of the stack of coins

The game ends when a coin is placed on the last empty space on the map or one tribe places their last coin on the map.

Scoring:
Control: A coin controls a space if it is the top of a stack in a space, or the only coin in the space.
Each coin that controls a space scores its value for its tribe.
The team that controls more spaces in a region doubles their scores in that region. Regions are designated by the colors on the map. No bonus points are scored for a tied region.

You also score one point for each coin left in your bank at the end

Here is an example of a finished game:
(in this representation, the top of the stack is to the right and the bottom to the left)

Blue scores 10 and Red scores 11. (This is without the coins left over in the bank, I think you would get how that works)

In the case of a tie, the team with the highest total rank of coins still in their bank is the winner

How this is going to work: Elect someone to be the spokesperson for your team. They will submit your team's move in this thread. I expect one move per 24 hours minimum. I will try to keep up with these moves as well as I can and report the next coin flips as quickly as I can.
Here (click) is the link to the spreadsheet where the game board and banks will be kept.

Now you guys spent some energy!

Hovel:
gkrieg13 - 12
Jimmmmm - 0
mcmcsalot - 12
mpsprs - 12
Roadrunner7671 - 0
Watno - 13
Total: 49

Necropolis:
AdamH - 35
Awaclus - 30
Eevee - 30
Hydrad - 24
iguanaiguana - 25
Robz888 - 30
teamlyle - 36
Total: 210

For every 30 energy your tribe spent you can choose 1 coin to choose the side it ends up on.  This means Necropolis will be able to do this 7 times, Hovel can do this once. When you want to use this power, before I report the flips your spokesperson specifies in bold in this thread the coins they want to choose their result. This means as long as you still have this power to use, I will not report your flips until you say No power, or specify coins you are determining.

Please feel free to ask any questions, the challenge will start in 24 hours.

I have a question. So we get 10 coins, but we can only do things if we get 4,3,2,1, or 0 flips of our tribe?

yes. The coins are basically dice, depending on how many land on your tribe's side (so a 1 randomly generated from 0-1) tells you what you can do with the coins that did land on that side

Who goes first?  Is that also decided by our sponsors at Random.org?  And if it's allowed, I would encourage my worthy opponents to use one of your coin flips controls on that first decision.  I've analyzed the game entirely, and it's clearly a guaranteed win for whoever goes first.  Ignore the coin flip luck, that's irrelevant.  After all, YMYOCL-You Make Your Own Coin Luck.  Trust me.
