THE MALICE CHALICE - TASK 1

Post by SpiteAndMalice » Sun Mar 01, 2015 9:20 pm

Welcome to the Malice Chalice one and all.

This should hopefully be a nice simple task to get you started.

TASK1 - THE BLOBATHON

The aim of this task is to blob as many creatures as you can.

1 point will be awarded per blobbed creature.

Blobbed wizards will be worth 2 points.

The blob can be yours or an opponents, and the same goes for the creatures/wizards that are blobbed.

To submit evidence of your 'blobbing' please post in this thread and include a screenshot.

It's one screenshot per competitor, (not just one per team) and your wizard must appear somewhere in the screen shot.

Btw - Please make your screenshots clear, as you don't want the judges to miss anything.

Finally once you've submitted your evidence there is to be no further entries by the same competitor. (i.e if you post on Wednesday with a score of 10, then you must not post again on Friday with a score of 12).

]The Team with the highest score at the end of the task wins.

And that's it, so like I say, nice and simple eh?

Or at least it would be, unfortunately these judges are a fickle bunch and they may or may not decide to add their own requirement to the scoring.

That's the problem with letting Gods run the rule, they get above themselves don't they? Making life difficult for you good honest competitors, they need taking down a peg or two I hey, but lets leave that notion there for now, we'll save it for a future task.

I hope the task makes sense, please feel free to ask about anything that you are unsure of.
The deadline for each task will be 17:00 GMT on Friday.

The judges will then review each team's performance and cast their votes. This will be done by Midnight GMT of Saturday.

In the event of a tie I will make the deciding vote.

The team which loses each week will then have until 17:00 GMT on Sunday to decide which member of their team to evict.

Should whim take me... (In other words if the time frames above aren't workable for one week's task) I shall notify you of changes to Deadlines.

When is the deadline? :) I've already made a folder to fill with blob screenshots. People are going to think I have a fetish.

That's a fine example of blobbery Grythandril :-D

As an entry it would be worth a solid 2 points - I'm sure that we'll be seeing some higher scores from the teams as the week progresses. I do wonder just how high it will get...

And a nice idea, but I'll leave any bonus JG points to the Judges.

Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye! The right honorable (*cough, cough*) Judge NoWorries announces the following:
  • (1) The first screenshot submitted after this post by a contestant will be the only screenshot which NoWorries considers for scoring purposes related to that contestant.
    (2) NoWorries will add 1 point to a contestant's score for their submission if they include the scoring math related to their submission and do it correctly.
    (3) NoWorries will deduct 5 points from a contestant's score for their submission if they do the math and do it incorrectly.

Here are the bonus points that Judge Arenji will award:-

These are in addition to the 'normal' Spite scoring system!!

1. If all blobbed *creatures* are of the same alignment: +2 points

2. If all blobbed creatures are Law and at least one wizard with a law staff is blobbed: +4 points
(Always nice to see those irritating Law creatures marooned in glorious blobbery!)

3. For each separate patch of blob (ie with gaps between) trapping at least one creature or wizard:
+2 points

4. Blob *three* undead creatures of the same type in adjacent hexes
+3 points
