    Thank you all for your interest! I am currently waiting for RMT to make the subforum.

    In the meantime, you can look at this Random.org simulation I ran:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    A couple notes:
    • The rule preventing players from facing the same opponent more than twice was not in play.
    • From F7 onward, the penalty for remaining cards was decreased to -1.
    • In Rounds 5 and 6, the Soldier of Honour paid to have another elimination.

    (The Ebony in the simulation is Ebony Morgan.)

    Meet the cast of this pilot season of Paper Wars!






    Wow that's a lot of people, isn't it?
    It's gonna be really hard to manage strategising with 19 whole players, so I'm going to throw you a bone for now...



    You've been divided into 2 groups!

    GROUP ALPHA




    GROUP OMEGA




    Each group will have its own thread to conduct the Shuffle activities.

    RECEIPTS

      Spoiler:  




    This round, you will only receive basic cards, just to get you used to the mechanics of the game.





    Once the hands are dealt, I will open a thread for each group, and you'll be required to start battling to 1) get rid of your cards and 2)
    To start a battle, you must post "I challenge [PLAYER] to a duel and play a [CARD]".
    This prevents any other player from initiating a Battle for the next 5 minutes.


    To accept a battle, the challenged player must post "I accept [PLAYER]'s challenge and play a [CARD]".

    The number of battles is capped at 25 in each group.
    You may not battle the same opponent more than twice. This forces you to be play with at least 3 people.

    You have until January 4th, 5PM EST to get rid of the cards in your hand, get 25 battles, or run out of possible opponents.

    In each group, the player with the fewest cards and the most points will be the Soldier of Honour.
    The player with the fewest cards and the fewest points will be the Fool.
    The 4 players with the most cards and the fewest points will be nominated.

    This round, the Soldier of Honour will have to spend 10 points to eliminate another nominee, an additional 15 points to eliminate a third player, and 20 extra points to eliminate all 4 nominees.
    Any cards still in your hand at the end of the round will cost you a penalty of 2 points per card to your War History.

    I will now shuffle the cards and start sending your hands.

    Good luck!

    For those who need help understanding how the battles take place, in what order each step of the battle takes place etc., I've come up with a protocol:

    STEP 1
    PLAYER 1 - Initiates BATTLE with PLAYER 2

    Have PLAYER 1 and PLAYER 2 already faced off twice?
    YES -> BATTLE initiation is ignored
    NO
    -> Does PLAYER 1 own the CARD they played?
    NO -> PLAYER 1 is eliminated from the game, BATTLE is ignored
    YES -> BATTLE #X begins, PLAYER 1's Card is discarded

    STEP 2
    ONE MATCHUP BETWEEN PLAYER 1 AND PLAYER 2 IS CONSUMED
    5-MINUTE TIMER BEGINS

    • STEP 3A
    -> PLAYER 2 - DECLINES BATTLE OR TIMER ENDS
    -> Penalty is given to PLAYER 1
    BATTLE #X CONCLUDES

    • STEP 3B
    -> PLAYER 2 - ACCEPTS BATTLE
    -> DOES PLAYER 2 own the CARD they played?
    NO -> PLAYER 2 is eliminated from the game -> BATTLE #X CONCLUDES
    YES -> PLAYER 2's Card is discarded

    STEP 4
    -> Weapons are compared
    -> Points/Penalties are given
    -> Colours are compared
    -> Points/Penalties are given
    -> Multipliers are applied
    BATTLE #X CONCLUDES

    Please note: the deadline is at 5PM EST on this blessed day.

    For this round, I am willing to offer you the option to request an extension.
    Here's the deal: if at least 5 people request an extension, everyone will receive an extra 24 hours to empty their hand.
    However, in exchange for that extension, the players who have discarded their hand by the initial deadline will receive a 5 point bonus in their War History.

    You may not request an extension if you've already discarded all your cards~

    Only one person requested an extension of the deadline, and there is approximately one hour left.

    Okay so I just woke up, and I have stuff to do in the next 5 hours.
    I'm giving you until 6PM EST to duel other players in order to discard as many cards as possible; HOWEVER:

    • You will not earn or lose points from these duels.
    • Your card will not be discarded if your opponent declines the battle.

    This applies to any battle that was held after the deadline.

    This long-ass round is finally over!
    I will now proceed to the Casualty Count.

    GROUP ALPHA

    The Soldier of Honour in Group Alpha is...

      Spoiler:  




    Maeve, whose avatar encapsulates my reaction to the number of players who finished the round with more than 3 cards
    Congratulations.



    The Fool is...

      Spoiler:  




    Congratulations on your hopefully deliberate performance.


    The four nominees from this group are...

      Spoiler:  





    Maeve, I was very tempted to allow you to offer you more than one free elimination but alas that would not be fair~
    Please post your decision as soon as possible. If you would like to eliminate any additional player, you must pay 10 Points per player.
    You currently have 25 Points.

    Here is also the final tally for your group:





    • • •

    GROUP OMEGA

    The Soldier of Honour in Group Omega is...

      Spoiler:  





    Eliot, also displaying an inspiringly unimpressed expression <3
    Congratulations.



    The Fool is...

      Spoiler:  




    It is only fitting that you spent the round practicing your ability to appear upside down.
    Congratulations.


    And finally, our four nominees are...

      Spoiler:  






    This group was definitely more active, unfortunately you four were not quite active (or competent~) enough to discard your hand and escape elimination.
    Please post your decision as soon as possible. If you would like to eliminate any additional player, you must pay 10 Points per player.
    You currently have 14 Points.

    Here is also the final tally for your group:

    Maeve: I run a brothel and I have to say, my girls work a lot harder than you lot for considerably less generous pay. Well, ladies and gentlemen, let's commence the slaughter.

      Spoiler:  


    This doesn't look like anything to me. You're eliminated.

      Spoiler:  


    You tried to contact me, so you can stay.

      Spoiler:  


    Apparently I can spend 10 of my hard earned points to eliminate one of you, or all 25 points to eliminate both of you. Or I could spare you both. In fairness, you both tried. Therefore...

      Spoiler:  


    I'm going to eliminate both of you! This is a bordello, not a welfare office.

    Well only one of you contacted me this round, so I'm just going to go with my gut instinct and eliminate Chanel.

    You are the first Casualties of this Paper War.
    So long!

    OOC: I had was not expecting some of you to go and I will always wonder what could've been. As for the others, this predictable outcome is somewhat comforting, but sad nonetheless.
