OK, here is my idea - parallel processing a combination tounament and communal game using IVAN 0.50. Everyone starts at the same point (this is the root), everyone makes that char their own and sees how far they can take it (their trunk), when you die post your score and details and start a branch of someone elses trunk at the level at which you died (say GC2 for example). We can also have a communal trunk that can tagged in on like a wrestling match. If anyone wants they can start communal branches off someone's trunk. Once a branch or trunk is dead it is dead for good. Examples
Communal trunk goes from slob to atomic to capristo to wolf, who drinks acid and dies, then the communal trunk is dead permanently. Someone can start a new communal branch off a living trunk (once the trunk owner confirms the trunk is still alive)
FMW starts his trunk from the root. he makes it to UT3 and then drinks acid and dies. His trunk is dead. He starts a branch off of Slob's trunk at slob's UT2 endpoint (stairs to UT3) and gets to GC1 then drinks acid and dies: His branch is dead but Slob's trunk lives on. FMW then starts a communal branch off atomics trunk (after atomic confirms it is still alive) and redoes GC1, Erno taggs in for GC2, Slob tags in for GC3, wolf tags in for GC4 but drinks acid and dies. the branch is dead.
Save and post your progress at the end of each level.
I made a character called Ivaner and saved him at turn 2 in UT1 so we all start with the exact same potential.
You should be on the stairs to the next level and have al the gear you want to bring with you, i.e. don;t leave a vermis on UT2 and not tell anyone about it.
I have also started my trunk and saved it at the stairs to UT2. This trunk will double as the communal trunk too: it is a twin trunk if slob trunk dies communal trunk still lives.
So start your own trunks and post your progress and who will tag in on the communal trunk?
ivaner.rar or ivaner.zip (for chaostrom) - this is the root. Everyone starts their trunk from here.
SlobUT1.rar - this is the communal trunk and also the start of my trunk. Someone tag in and take it for 1 level and then post progress and savefile (maybe rename communalUT2)Progress so far
Day 1, 21:46
Gods - none
Named baddies killed - none
Other info: nothing special other than my Int Wis and Agi boosts and finding an arcanite staff +1
Someone tag in and take it for 1 level and then post progress and savefile (maybe rename communalUT2)
