    General Managers. Welcome.

    I?d like for all of you to take a look around at the people standing next to you. Take a good, hard look at all eleven faces you see. Take in every freckle, every dimple, every twitch of the jaw. For these are faces that you?ll be seeing an awful lot of over the next few months.

    However, these are not friendly faces. These are not faces to be fraternized or socialized with. No, these faces represent nothing more than a mountain of competition ready to be climbed, and only one of you will manage to reach its summit. That is the goal folks, to get to the top. Kick, punch, scratch, claw, bite, I don?t care how you do it.

    Determination will be key. Cunning will be paramount. And in the end, only one will stand. Whom that will be... is up to you.


    That?s right folks, we're back in all of our glory. I present to you the Third Installment of the Movie & Television Character Draft. We?ve gotten through two successful drafts now, and I?m happy to say that the last one went down (almost) without a single hitch. For your viewing pleasures, here are the first two installments:

    The Movie and Television Character Draft
    The Movie and Television Character Draft 2: Census and Games' Bogus Journey


    I am also proud to announce the introduction of the Official Movie & Television Draft Walk of Fame, now enshrined with the winners of the first two drafts.

    Fortunately for the GM?s in this draft, the defending champion, Shadow_of_Durron, will not be defending his title. He?s graciously volunteered for a different role. But we?ll get to that soon.

    Or maybe we'll get to it right now.

    Participants

    There are three different types of participants in this (and any) draft game.

    1. The Commissioner That's me. It's my job to enforce the rules, update draft lists, generate matches, keep the game flowing, randomize draft lists, and basically take crap from everyone else when things don't go their way.

    2. The GMs It's the job of the GMs to assemble their teams, mainly through drafting, but trades and free agency can be used as well. It's also the job of the GMs to send in numbers (we'll discuss this later), and, optionally, argue as to why their character(s) should win matches.

    3. The Judges It's the job of the Judges to, well, judge. They decide who will win matches. They also are encouraged to provide breakdowns of teams and grades for draft picks as the drafting moves along, but this is not required.

    So that's an overview, let's look at the way the draft will shake-out.


    Step 1: The Draft

    Once all the positions are filled, I'll randomize the draft order and post the list from which the GMs will draft their teams. There will be fourteen rounds of drafting, which of course means that each team will consist of fourteen 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. Team C
    4. Team D

    Round 2
    1. Team D
    2. Team C
    3. Team B
    4. Team A

    And we'll do fourteen rounds like that.


    STEP 2: THE MATCHUPS

    Once all fourteen rounds of drafting are completed, I'll post the first round of matchups. Each GM's squad will face off against another GM's squad. Once the matchups are posted, I'll ask each GM to PM me a set of numbers. Basically what you do here is assign each character on your squad a number from 1 to 10, and when I randomly call, for example, the number 6, whoever you placed at number 6 will square off against whomever the opposing GM placed a

    Always good to see a nice mixture of n00bs and vets.

    Glad to finally be playing this, but I have no doubt that I'll lose horribly. Barring several strokes of luck.

    Hmmm, do we want to bump this up to 16, or should we just stay put at 12? Any thoughts?

    Stay at 12. Unless you really like simming numbers and you want to spend a lot of time finding replacement GMs and/or judges.

    I played the first two, but I think I'll sit this one out. Plus I'm scared of Inty's elite drafting skills :p

    Isn't the second round of picking usually a mirror of the first round, and shouldn't Nemisis be picking first in that one?

    Thou hath confuzzled me. :confused:

    Yeah, I double checked the first post and this is what it says about picking order.

    Big Trouble in Little China references >>> Bill and Ted references. Even with Bogus Journey being as underappreciated as it is.
