Put me in as a reserve please Aka.

If you don't have enough players by the 21st then I'll happily join, it sounds fun, but I'm not really available until then.

@Spite, will do, thanks for the map help.

ahMostyn, got you down, thanks.

An issue with using the Icarus, is assuring a successful caste, right?

It has base-chance of 60%, so a bound law shift and a decent boosty staff would ensure 100%; or we could just abandon the game and restart if we don't get icarus out on 1st turn.

If it's 3v3 and all 3 players bind the tower that's 3 60% casts so it's bound to work :)

That's like 180% chance to work innit :roll: oh where's ob when you need him :lol:

well it's a good enough chance to risk a restart anyway, maybe you just loose if you fail to cast a tower - then it's up to you how much mana you risk boosting, there are going to be 100's of dragons everywhere if we all bring law shift! that'll probably ruin the game.

I did some lolling at your 180%, but that aside, I'm now imagining 3 towers plodding across the map. \m/
I'm surprisingly excited about this game.

Cool, all good points. So, for gameplay:

everyone has to bind Icarus, but it can only be used once, at the beginning of the game.

I've attached an image of the map and course I was thinking, let me know yer thoughts.

The purple/blue zone is the safe zone to caste your icarus and also serves as the destination for the other team's tower.

The red zone is the canal that you have to escort your team's tower through, winning by crossing into their purple zone.

If this graphic makes sense (and the idea it illustrates), I'll go ahead and set this game up. This is the shape it took in response to a few questions that came up regarding player positions and terrain and casting of the icarus etc.

it made no sense to me, I couldn't see a purple \ blue zone, was it the orange bit in the middle?

anyway as it's a team game I'm sure my teammates will help me, right guys.......guys???
