Something that I have been wanting to try for a while, to be able to pit my character ideas against someone else's.
Be they machines of destruction, some off the wall half-baked ideas, or an invincible tank.
But the problem with this is getting it to work... and not just have it be "Whoever dumps the most dailies first and hits wins." as Wyatt Salazar put it, but have it so that characters might have a chance against just about any other same level characters.
After a small discussion on twitter, it was theorized that 3 on 3 matches with one player per team would probably work out the best. The 3 character limit would force the player to pick their character's roles carefully.
I would have liked to have a 1 on 1 match, but maybe we can save that for later.
now, the next step is to find a means to do this online. There has been a lot of talk lately about RPGs on google wave. I have yet to try it but will soon. Suggestions also included fantasy grounds/skype or maptools/skype, (thanks to Gamerfiend)
After that I will figure out the maps and anything else that I can think of.
So, discussion time!
