    Thanks to some great behind-the-scenes work from our new favorite mod, droideka27, this draft has a new home! There are a few other new surprises in store for this episode of the Comic Book Draft, but to get all of those, you'll need to keep reading!


    So, without further delay allow me to say ...


    Welcome to the third installment of the Comic Book Character Draft! After two successful games on the Your Jedi Council Community board, we've got a new look, and a new board. Now, before we start playing, there's a few things we need to get down. First of all, there's the business of recognizing the past.

    The winner of the last draft was: SLAVE2! As a reward, SLAVE2 got two days of colors and a title, as well as guaranteed first pick in the draft this time around. The winner this time can do even better, as they'll get five days of colors and title, as well as the first pick in the next installment. So, let's look at the Hall of Fame:

    Darth_Deception (Winner of 1st draft)
    SLAVE2 (Winner of 2nd draft)


    Will we add to this list? Will someone repeat? It's almost time to start finding out!

    Now, for those of you wanting to see what we've done before, check out the
    Previous draft threads:

    New Game: THE COMIC BOOK CHARACTER DRAFT!
    The Comic Book Draft, Episode II: Attack of the Heroes!

    Now, some of you are familiar with these drafts games, and many of you probably aren't. Regardless, these games are fun to play, read, watch, judge, you name it!. Let us go through a quick overview of the rules here:

    If you're new to this type of game, don't be put off by the length of this post explaining all the rules. It's as long as it is because I want to make sure that everything is clear to everyone before we get started. It's really not all that complicated when you break it all down. If you think you might be interested, go ahead and sign up, then come back and read up on the rules and procedures. Then, if you think it's all too much for you, (which I don't think it should be for anyone) you can always just say that you're not up to it and vacate your spot.

    Okay, now for how the game works (A lot of you may be familiar with most of this, but I'm going to go into detail for anyone who may be new to the game):

    THE POSITIONS

    Okay, first off, there are three different positions in this draft:

    The Commissioner: (That's me :D ) . It's my job to randomize the draft order, to post the matchups when we get to that point, to enforce the rules and just basically run the show. If you have any further questions about the draft that isn't explained in this post, feel free to ask me, either in the thread or via PM.

    The Judges: There will be three judges. It's the judges' job to decide who wins the matches. Simple as that. There are three judges so that each match will be decided as a best two out of three between them. I'm also good with people signing up to be back-up judges if they get here late and still want in, as sometimes judges can get fatigued.

    The GMs: There will be sixteen GMs spots up for grabs. As a GM, it's your responsibility to draft a competitive team from the draft list, come up with a team name and assign numbers to your characters once the matches start. But I'll explain all that in more detail as I go on.

    STEP 1: THE DRAFT
    Once all the positions are filled, I'll randomize the draft order and post the two lists from which the GMs will draft their teams. There will be ten rounds of drafting, which of course means that each team will consist of ten characters. The draft order will also reverse after each round. This is so that the people in the lower part of the first round aren't getting the shaft by giving them picks that are closer together.

    Example:

    Round 1
    1. Team A
    2. Team B
    3
  2. Jedi_Master_Ryokono Jedi Master

    Good luck everyone! Let the fun begin!
    Integral, please count me in as a back-up judge. I don't have enough time for the full-time job and GMs deserve team breakdowns, explanations and all.

    Hey, I suggested them a while back, but really only as a joke. ;) Sure, in coolness and badassery they'd rate way up there, (especially Raph :D) but, uh, that's a waste of four picks right there.

    EDIT: Oh, and I'm not 100%, but I think the only real change to the rules from last time is that you can't prep power-list picks... maybe. I'm pretty sure we all agreed with that. Anything else I forgot about?

    you know I'm getting the Bong before you.
    you know it.

    you might as well forfeit him to The Mallow now.
    INFIDEL! :p

    EDIT: wow, Census gives you freakin 20 years to edit your posts... that's nice!

    I could trump them all together and take 3 forfeits. And Splinter and April could win their own matches, and then I'd clean house in teams. :) :p
