Please do not use this forum until we are finished.

The basic idea will be, you will have a menu of monsters to pick from, as many of the powers around camp including making replicas of monsters (though not as powerful as the real thing), here you can pick a monster and fight up against the copy of it for training.

So basically once all is said and done you'll create a forum titled something like "Jordan vs. Harpy".

Basics

One Character

(For solo fights against easy monsters. Medium monsters are pushing it, but if your character is truly up to the challenge, so be it >.<)

  1. The user who is fighting makes a forum with the title <insert char name here> vs. <insert monster here>. They will then make the first post, describing preparations of the sort. Then, alert some of the mods about the creation of the forum.
  2. A mod will find the forum and will comment as the desired monster, to introduce it to its opponent.
  3. Each person will get 10 posts. If the owner of the demigod is in a position where they cannot make any more moves however, like if they are too inactive to post or are in a position where they cannot fight, instead of posting they can simply write I quit. The fight will then be considered a forfeit, and judging will be done immediately.
  4. For judging, the mod will write about 2-3 sentences saying what the demigod could do better to fight with their maximum potential. It’s as simple as that.

Multiple Characters

(For fights against medium, hard, and suicide monsters where you need multiple characters to defeat the monster. Do not make groups to fight monsters such as harpies.)

  1. First, get a group together. You can either assemble a group yourself or sign your character up in the Group Signup tab, where other people will sign up to create a group. Whoever creates the group is the leader. Come up with a group name together.
  2. Next, make a forum with the title <insert group name here> vs. <insert monster here>. Have the leader make the first post, then have your group decide if you want anyone else to post before the mod. When you’re done, alert some mods about the creation of the forum.
  3. A mod will find the forum and make a post as the monster, introducing it to the group.
  4. Next, the group will get together with the mod, by chat or IM, to discuss how many posts everyone will get. Do not make it some absurd number, and be sure to give all of the demigods an equal amount of posts.
    1. For posting, the monster will get a set number of posts. (12, 15, etc.) The demigods will get a flexible amount of posts. (Up to 3, up to 5, etc.) This way, the fight is only over when the monster wastes up all of its posts, or if every demigod in the group manages to waste up their posts before the monster is done.
    2. If any of the group members is in a position where they cannot make any more moves however, like if they are too inactive to post or are in a position where they cannot fight, instead of posting they can simply write I quit. The group will continue on without that person, unless they magically lose all of the members
  5. When all of the posts are done, or no demigods are left standing, the fight will be judged. For judging, the mod will write about 2-3 sentences saying what the group could do better to fight with their maximum potential. You see? Super easy.

  • No god-modding or metagaming. Read the god-modding tab to learn more.
  • If you do god-mod and put somebody else in a threatening situation, you will be forced to forfeit. Please, no complaining if this happens to you >.<
  • If you are inactive or are very stumped on what to post, please quit, as it will make everyone’s lives easier if they are not stuck waiting for you to post.
  • Do not pick an incredibly hard monster to face off against if you are a novice fighter. Pick based on your skill level.
  • When making groups, please make the group numbers as follows: (Medium: 3-5 people, Hard: 5-8 people, Suicide, 8+ people)
  • Do not drive your mod crazy if they do not post immediately, if they haven’t posted for a while, say for a week, then you can leave a nice message on their talk page, but the admin team tends to be quite busy and may not always post as soon as you do.

God-modding is a huge pain for all rpers to encounter. Here, in Monster Combat Training, it is no different. Here are the possible ways that you can god-mod, so that you know how not to rp.

Examples

Example 1

  • Making your character always able to dodge attacks

Monster: The monster lunges for Demigod, trying to scratch his side.

Demigod: He quickly dodges the monster's claws.

Monster: The monster rears up and tries to pounce on Demigod.

Demigod: He moves out of the way and escapes without a scratch.

Monster: The monster leaps to the side, swiping its paws at the demigod as it leaps.

Demigod: He ducks underneath the swipe, and jumps away from the monster.

Monster: The monster swipes at the demigod again, in attempts to kill the infuriating pest of a demigod.

Demigod: He jumps up over the swipe, lands on his feet, and runs away.

In this rp, the Demigod keeps dodging the monster. This gets quite tiring, and it causes the rp to become extremely tiresome, boring and drawn out. It also means that neither side will ever be set back or injured in any way.

  • Similarly, this works vice-versa, the demigod may continue to attack the monster, but the monster will dodge every attack.


Example 2A

  • Exceeding limits of powers without taking any damage:

Monster: The monster growls at Demigod, who he has cornered.

Demigod: Demigod summons every single lightning bolt in the universe and electrocutes Monster without breaking a sweat.

Monster: He growls and flails around, trying to escape the bolts.

Demigod: He begins to fly, all of his energy intact and coursing through his veins.

Monster: He tries to swat at flying Demigod, his paws reaching out to grasp him.

Demigod: He calls 100 eagles to peck the monster into bits, feeling more powerful than ever before. He glances at the ground below him, not even beginning to tire himself out from flying.

Monster: In a lightning cloud surrounded by eagles, he roars and tries to send a wave of birds flying back at Demigod.

Demigod: He calls over an extremely powerful gust of wind, which he uses to knock out the birds and fly away, not even feeling remotely exerted.

In this rp, the Demigod uses his powers to a great extent without even beginning to lose energy. This makes the demigod very OP. The powers were made with limitations to make them fair, and disregarding those limitations is unfair to other roleplayers. By the way this child of Zeus was using his powers, he should have passed out at the very least, if not killed himself from exhaustion and overexertion.

Example 2B

  • Using powers that your character does not have:

Monster: The monster walks slowly towards Demigod, ready to strike.

Demigod: He summons a gigantic electric orb from the sky and thrusts it on to Monster.

Monster: He tries to escape the orb, lunging at Demigod angrily.

Demigod: He levitates water into the orb, causing an electric explosion.

Monster: Freed from his cage and slightly dazed, he runs at Demigod and pounces.

Demigod: He summons a lightning rope to hang Monster from a nearby tree.

Monster: He struggles to get out of the rope, growling and snapping at Demigod.

Demigod: He tightens the rope and leaves, his job done. Before he leaves, he summons some tigers to eat the monster.

In this rp, the Demigod uses powers that he does not have. He was also not losing any energy while preforming these powers, such as controlling, let alone levitating, water, and summoning tigers. Also, children of Zeus can not make lightning cages and lightning ropes that can sustain and hold a monster for that long. These rps are quite frustrating for the other members because they have to deal with a character that does not even have the powers that he/she is using at all.

  • This can also happen in a situation where the monster uses powers that it does not have, like if a hellhound was spitting acid and controlling it.

Example 3

  • Ignoring moves made by other roleplayers on purpose.

Monster: He pounces towards Demigod and tries to rake his side.

Demigod: He ignores the gashes on his side and keeps swinging his sword at Monster.

Monster: He is dazed by the blows but once again strikes out at Demigod.

Demigod: Ignoring the wounds, they cause him no pain and he continues to fight back.

Monster: Annoyed, he gathers all of his strength and lunges fiercely at Demigod.

Demigod: He does not care about the weight of Monster and swings his sword in a quick motion.

Monster: He yowls in pain and presses his weight down harder.

Demigod: He ignores him and continues to swing his sword, hoping to land a fatal blow.

In this rp, Demigod is immune to pain. This is very unfair to everyone, because it makes the character more powerful than he/she should be. It makes him seem immortal, and he is not. He can not possibly withstand all of the pain that he is getting from Monster in any situation.

  • This can also work vice versa if the monster is ignoring blows from its attackers and acting like it is immune to all pain.

Example 4

  • Auto-hitting and determining outcomes before they happen.

Monster: He prowls towards Demigod, teeth bared.

Demigod: He swings his sword towards Monster and inflicts a large wound in his side.

Monster: He staggers but continues to advance quickly towards Demigod.

Demigod: He once again swings his sword at Monster and inflicts another wound, which stuns Monster.

Monster: He shakes out of his daze and leaps for Demigod, hoping to catch him by surprise.

Demigod: He swings his sword out in front of him, knocking Monster back.

Monster: He once again leaps for Demigod, this time with more force.

Demigod: He raises his sword and watches as it perfectly digs into Monster's stomach.

In this rp, Demigod has too much influence over the actions of the other members of the roleplay. It is practically like he is the only one in the roleplay, not giving other members a chance to react and make their own actions. Also, he is making it unfair by making his char more powerful than any of the other members of the roleplay, which is also god-modding by itself.

Example 5

  • Controlling other rper's characters.

Monster: He crouches in front of Demigod and leaps, trying to land squarely on demigod.

Demigod: He moves out of the way and watches as the monster falls to the ground with a thud. It howls in pain as its foot breaks. He moves in to stab the monster.

Monster: He roars in pain and attempts to stand up on three legs, only to be stabbed in the shoulder. Infuriated, it reaches out to claw demigod.

Demigod: He dodges the claws, watching as they get embedded in the ground. He laughs and aims his sword toward the monster's other shoulder.

Monster: He yowls, losing all feeling in his shoulders. He tries to rake at demigod with his back legs.

Demigod: The monster accidentally flips itself over. It squirms around on the ground, helpless. He reaches up to scratch the monster's belly.

Monster: He pitifully rolls out of the way, feeling the sword scrape his side. In one last attempt to win, he snaps his jaws at demigod.

Demigod: He sticks his sword into the monster's throat. The monster explodes into gold dust.

In this rp, Demigod decides how the monster's actions result, instead of letting the person who is rping the monster decide. He is controlling all of the monster's reactions. This is not fair to the rper who is the monster. The monster does not get to react on its own.

  • One user can control more than one character. For example, if two demigods are fighting a monster, one rper can control the other demigod and the monster. The person who is rping the monster can also control the demigod(s).
