Discord Battle Royale: Marvel's Infinity War Edition.


Recommended Posts

We at mafia club have a discord game, everyone! To spread some fun around and hopefully revive some activity around here, I’d like to introduce a discord battle royale: Marvel edition! The game will take place in the discord server below, and mechanics will be detailed here as well as in the server. This will begin 2 to 4 days from today (Depending on how many people join). Hopefully everyone has fun!

Mechanics!
 

Spoiler

The game will flip between Day phases and Duel phases, each lasting around 24 hours (This is subject to change depending on availability and participation).
 

Order of events are as follows:
Day 1: Alliances are made, challenges are issued, some abilities are used.

Duel 1: Skills/items are used in reaction to challenges, challenges are accepted/rejected where applicable, Steals are attempted.

Day 2: Duel results are given (damage taken, items stolen), alliances can be altered, challenges are issued.

Etc…

You may be thinking, what does this all mean? Well... (And don't worry if the stuff below is confusing! I'll answer questions and help along the way!)

 

Challenge!

During each Day phase, someone may challenge another player to a duel. The mechanics differ between challenge specifics…
 

One on one duels: The player that was challenged must accept for the duel to take place. Then, at the end of the duel phase, the two players’ current strength ratings are compared. The player with the higher strength will do damage equal to the difference between the two numbers. If strength is equal, both players will deal 1 damage to each other. 
(On a successful or tie challenge, players will get a successful attack message saying they did an unknown amount of damage, while people taking damage will know exactly how much they took. Ties will know they tied because they both give and take damage)

 

Uneven duels: If multiple players challenge one player on the same day, the player that was challenged must accept at least 50% of duels (rounded down). For instance, if someone is challenged by 4 people, they must accept at least two. If more than one challenge is accepted on the same duel phase, damage will be compounded. (ex. If someone with 3 strength and 4 strength fight someone with 3 strength, it becomes a matchup of 7 versus 3, rather than 3v3 and 4v3)
This should encourage you to make alliances… 
 

Alliances!

Speaking of alliances, each player may make an ‘alliance’ with up to 3 players at any time. This can mean three chats with three different people, or one chat with three different people, or two chats with three people total (one with one, and one with two people), etc. You may only initiate an alliance with three others. (Note that because this only applies to alliances you created, at any given time you could be in contact with many more than 3 other people). You can only make one alliance change each day phase (not counting the first day). You can only make one alliance change each day phase (not counting the first day).
Be careful though, alliances WILL play into other player’s skills and abilities. (When a skill/ability/flaw details ‘only people you are allied with,’ this applies only to alliances that player has *created*)

 

Items… And stealing!

Every character starts with one item. These items may be personal, OR they may be random. They may have continuous effects, or they may have limited uses. Regardless, each player may steal from another player at the end of a duel phase. Various items may be easier or harder to steal than others, and skills/abilities can affect this as well. If a player steals from someone with multiple items, one is chosen randomly for an attempt. 
Of course, if you don’t like stealing, you can always work out a trade… You can trade with any player you are connected with in a chat, and trades will always be processed at the end of a phase. 
Example Items: Captain America’s Shield, Pym particles, Mjolnir, the Time Stone, Web Bombs, etc. 


Characters!!
 

Spoiler

Once you join the game, you may choose any, yes *any* Marvel character (from the films, TV, or comics) to be. 

Take a look at the list further on, but if you don't see your favorite, don't fret! I'll be happy to make one for you! Once signups close, there will be a chance to choose your top 3 characters (from the list or otherwise)! If the characters you want are taken, unfortunately you will have to choose someone else; characters are first come first serve. A list of characters in the game will be announced once it begins.  
Every character will also have a basic alignment (Hero, Villain, Neither) and type (Human, Mutant, Alien, Divine). There will be a little bit of simplification/balancing when it comes to this categorizing, so I apologize if it doesn’t fit with EXACTLY what Marvel Lore dictates. These simple character descriptions may play into some character’s skills, abilities, and flaws.

 

Skills and Abilities

Speaking of Skills and Abilities, each character has one skill and one ability. A skill is something that can be used during the day/duel phases. An ability is passive, and activates under specific conditions. 
Every character also has a flaw. This flaw is a negative trait or limitation that comes into effect under specific circumstances… Manage your flaw, and you’ll be able to keep yourself out of danger!

 

Strength!

Each character has a strength rating. Your base strength rating can be anywhere between 2 and 5. This number can be modified with items, skills, abilities, etc. Your current strength rating (the one that is used in duels) can go below 2 and above 5. You might not know this number for sure if you’ve been affected by outside forces. Some characters might be able to investigate you, and see either your current or base strength rating. This has to do with the Challenges.

 

HP 

Every player has HP. Once HP hits 0, you die, and the person who landed the killing blow gets all your items! If multiple people kill you, items are distributed randomly between them. 
 


Discord Server!!!
 

Spoiler

Here's the discord server for the game: https://discord.gg/JUBuxFxy6t

While you're at it, join the mafia club discord server as well! https://discord.gg/dQkxxKwy


Winning!!!!
As with any battle royale game, everyone fights until there are around three of you left (depending on how many join in the first place). Those survivors win! Be smart with your skills, work with the right people, and betray all your friends!

And I would be lying if I said this game didn’t depend somewhat on how lucky you are as well~ Good luck!
