    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us, so let’s squander it with another classic JCC survival battle. We’ve done Star Wars, we’ve done the MCU, and we’ve done GoT (suck it HotD).

    Now fine people is the time for LOTR.

    The rules: For those unfamiliar with survivor battles, they are extremely silly things where characters have points and you get to add points to those characters or take them away. All characters will start with 10 points and each time you change the list you will have 2 points to distribute (your options being +2, -2, +1 -1, +1 +1, -1 -1). All you have to do is copy and paste the list posted by the last person to change it, make your changes, and then announce what you did. You may change the list once every five turns, meaning four people have to change the list before you can change it again (this could be changed, depending on how fast the game moves). You may also use your turn to add a character.

    Adding characters: Everyone may add a character with their first turn if they wish, but after you add your first character you may only add another character once every five turns, meaning four people have to change the list before you can add again. If the list gets really unwieldy we may have a character cap.

    Character eligibility: Basically any character from any of Tolkien’s books, Peter Jackson’s films, or Bezos’ TV show.

    The end game: At some point the game will wind down and we will switch to the end game. The rules are the same, except adding characters and +2 and +1, +1 posts will no longer be allowed.

    Additional notes: All added characters begin the game with 10 points. I will update the character/dead lists periodically.

    It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish, so without further delay here’s your starting list…

    Merry - 10
    Isildur - 10
    Largo Brandyfoot - 10
    Thorin Oakenshield - 10
    Galadriel - 10
    Sea Monster - 10
    Gothmog - 10
    Rosie Cotton- 10
    Shelob - 10
    Radagast - 10

    Do I want to make my like-to-post ratio even worse? Yes, yes, I do!

    If we add a character, does that take the place of adding or subtracting points for our turn?

    Question on adding.... do they start at 10 points, or do they begin at whatever points were given them?

    Also, it’s past one am where I am, so I was just drifting off into that borderland between being awake and asleep—when suddenly a bell clanged somewhere many countless fathoms deep in some slimy part of my subconscious, and as if struck by thunder, I suddenly became fully awake, sitting bolt upright, announcing to a dark silent bedroom, “SURVIVAL BATTLE STARTED!”

    Add Lobelia Sackville-Baggins, because we only want to include characters of extraordinary importance.

    @3sm1r Do Italians have servants to update their survival battle moves? In future, state any changes you make at the bottom of the list.

    In past games, we’d let unseen helper elves update the list periodically, and just post our changes (unless adding a character). Will that change for this game?

    You can scoff, Cor. But you know as well as I do that you’re currently in up to your neck, and will most likely be doing a large portion of the heavy lifting when this really kicks off.
