This is a new game. It is half tactical board game, half quick-debate tournament.

You will be arranged into two teams.

You will be set on this board:
http://oi49.tinypic.com...

The grid of squares are the spaces. Each player may only move 1 space per turn except for the first turn where each player may move up to 5 to get things started.

The solid black rectangles are barriers.

The circles are the most important part of the game. They are command-posts and you want to capture them. They will turn red or blue depending on what team currently occupies one. Grey means it is not currently occupied. If one team captures all command-posts, they have won the game. The only other way to win is to remove all the enemy from play.

The green outline rectangles are the capture-zones. In-order to capture a command-post, you must be within the capture-zone and there must be no enemies inside the capture-zone. If there is only one person within the capture-zone, it takes three turns to capture. Two people, two turns. Three people, automatically. Once the command-post has been captured, you do not need to stay in the capture-zone to keep it, though you may want to as to protect it.

If two people from an opposing team run into each other it means it's time for them to fight. This is done with a simple one-round debate, the topic of which is picked by popular vote from spectators.

Once a player is beaten in a battle, they are killed. However, both teams have 10 respawns at the beginning of the game. That's not each player but each team, to be dispersed to it's players as needed. Once all the respawns on a team have been used up, the players on that team who are killed will be removed from the game. A player may respawn on any square within the capture-zone of a command-post occupied by their team.

You are allowed and would be expected to send other players personal messages concerning the game.

I will also need spectators. By signing-up to be a spectator you gain the ability to vote on what people will debating on and you are also making a commitment to read and vote on those debates.

I feel like less would be better for this. Cause...someone being inactive could severely cripple a team.

I concur with Ober. Anything more then 10 players seems unnecessary and possibly crippling.

Is it really neccessary to have a list of voters? Why not allow anyone who isn't affiliated with a team vote?

Votebomber, spammers, etc. having a team of voters makes it less likely distasteful voting practices would be used

Can't we just make a thread in the DDO forum asking for debate topics when we need them?

I also think there should be some pre-arranged random topics, so that people don't unfairly pick a topic that someone is good St debating, as opposed to one someone is not.

Yes, topics are assigned randomly. As well as who takes what position.
