The Tournament

 

An elimination style tournament where the characters that are eligible move towards a final battle in the Main Event.

 

Character Eligibility

 

Characters which have gained 300+ Fame and are currently in queue for the Main Event.

 

Bye Week

 

In the event there is an odd number of contenders for a round, the character with the highest Fame Points will be allowed a bye on the round.

 

Main Event

 

The current champion of the Main Event is Zombie Girl.  The surviving character of the eliminations tournament will face Zombie Girl in the Main Event.

 

Prizes and eligibility

 

The two players with characters which make it to the Main Event will win a prize of a $50 dollar Amazon gift card.

 

The player which wins the Main Event with their character will win a prize of a $100 dollar Amazon gift card.

 

To be eligible for the prizes

  • You must have a character which is reliable to be in and participates in the tournament
  • An eligible character must survive to the Main Event
  • You must have either a valid email or mailing address you are willing to provide in the event you win so that the prize can get to you

 

Prizes will be dispensed through Amazon at the completion of the tournament and Main Event.  Notification of winning will only be given via these electricferret forums.

 

These prizes are just to say thanks for participating in the FPL.  Good luck!

 

Thanks!

Now we're talking.  It might be time to reactivate all my characters!

It might be time for me to write characters who are worth being active!

Bye Week

 

In the event there is an odd number of contenders for a round, the character with the highest Fame Points will be allowed a bye on the round.

 

For the sake of fairness, it would be nice if the bye went to the highest Fame character who hasn't gotten a bye yet.

 

 

EDIT: Or a random character.  Or anything that doesn't guarantee that all the byes in a row go to the same character.

That does seem to be the case, yes.

A fair point, yep.

"A lot" comes nowhere near covering how much reading there is to do. I'm still very excited for the tournament, but I've hardly even skimmed most of these characters in the past. 5 days until voting ends, right?

You're not alone. A lot of these guys have been in hibernation, for years in some cases. I had mostly forgotten about Hanako and Thomas Jackson before I saw them here; had to re-read a few sections to bone up.

You guys...!  I am going to have to really concentrate to focus on finishing the RP with my excitement over FPLness happening.  That banner is beautiful.  On that note, I like ZG, but Zombie Girl must DIE!

 

Listen voters.  Vote treacherous in all matches!  All my characters are better than all other characters, period.  Speaking of which, Where's BPI and Cimmerian?

I only wish a sack full of spiders was in the tournament. I wouldn't even bother voting on other matches then.
