The Hunger games is from a book called "the hunger games" and i'm here to see if i can start a forum game, i will hold sign ups just see if people are interested and if they are we will play.

Basically everyone will submit a personally designed character with strengths and weaknesses among other traits (should the game happen there will be a form to fill out about the character)

The characters are all thrown into an arena that I will design, and the characters will have to fight each other to survive, the victor is the last one standing. The arena will be fairly large with different terrains.

Alliances may be formed however you never know when someone in your alliance will turn on you for their ultimate goal in the game, however sometimes it may be used to your advantage.

Each night (figurative night) you will send me a message telling me why your character should survive, and basically a story will be generated.

These are the basics however there will be quite a lot more details should the game happen.

There may also be sponsors (people who can basically help you by sending you things) to help you win.

If you are interested you may sign up, no limit to how many can play.

There will be actions, traits, situations and conditions and different things like that, that determine what happens, but yes some things will come down to my discretion.

Your character will come from one of the 12 districts, of your choosing. The districts represent as followed:

District 1- luxury goods for the Capitol
District 2- Medicine
District 3- Machinery/Factories
District 4- Fishing
District 5- Livestock
District 6- Scientific Research
District 7- Lumber
District 8- Weaving/ Clothes-making
District 9- Hunters
District 10- Mathematical Research
District 11- Agriculture
District 12- Coal

The district that your character comes from MAY have some effect on your character, so start thinking about which one yours will come from.

The first thee districts are considered "Career districts" basically they have grown up better, are in better shape and have trained for the games; HOWEVER, this is not always a good thing, they may not be as street smart when it comes to certain things like hunting, gathering etc. Keep this in mind.

This reminds me a lot of RR's game which was all kinds of fail for a lot of reasons. But sure, Alex, I'll give it a shot. Sign me up for spot 5 (though I doubt the numbers are relevant lol).

Sounds like fun, slip me into slot three if thats okay.

How do I calculate my thaco?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I will allow the sign up of 3 sponsors, basically you are someone who is watching the games, and you may aid the contestants by sending them things, typically a sponsor will aid the person they want (or think) is going to win. I'm not sure how involved you are in the game but if thats what you want to do you can.

Inactives will most likely be killed off. If you need to be away for a certain amount of time and you let me know privately in the PM you may be able to hide out for a while.

Also, because typically the sponsors are placing bets for the contestant they think is going to win and thats why they want to help them, and i don't think we are placing bets, the sponsor that sponsors the winning character will also be considered a "winner" along with the contestant.

Wait, I can only sponsor one player?

Also, should the sponsors be tied down to a specific type of aid? (e.g. Pandas firearms, explosives and military equipment inc.)

I was thinking about that myself, i couldnt think of another way to declare a sponsor a winner besides tying them to one player, if you have any suggestions i will be open. I will be back later to answer your other question.

Just for clarification, the weaponry is old time based, as in no guns, some explosives MIGHT be used. The weapons are basically bows, mêlée weapons, throwing knives etc, lets not get too advanced.

Again - Should sponsors be limited to a certain type of aid?

If so, dibs on Military equipment :D

And the amount of players that can be sponsored should be proportionate to the sponsors. Furthermore, I feel that there should be a certain number of visible sponsorships, and invisible ones (E.g. The player is being sponsored but it is unknown whether or not they are by the rest of the players)
