How to Compete
Matches are completely 100%
Role-Play inside of the AGL arena. Yes, betting will be enabled,
To be eligible to compete, a jouster
must be signed up under a House's banner. Anyone can register a House
by finishing the Family Crest graphic below, emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org
and paying a one time 1 egg registration fee.
How a Match Works
A jouster should bring a herald who will announce their jouster via the yell
command to the entire arena. This is where quality Role-Play comes in.
The judge of the contest will grant the jouster a bonus of 0 to 3 based on
the quality of the herald's announcement.
Then both jousters will
tell the judge if they wish to aim LOW, MEDIUM or HIGH. This works in
the traditional Rock/Paper/Scissors fashion, where High
beat Medium, Medium beats Low and Low beats High. If they choose the
same aim, the jousters will have a pass where no one is dismounted from
their mount and they will begin a new pass with a new aim strategy.
When a jouster loses the aim, they will get a chance
deflect the blow and stay mounted. The chance will be a 2d6 dice roll
with the RP bonus added to the roll. An 8 or above will allow the
jouster to deflect getting dismounted and another pass will occur.
The Jouster and Herald will lose a -1 to the roll for each 10
levels below level 51 that they are.
