The Pumpkin Wars


Welcome to the Halloween 2017 Squashy Pumpkin Wars!

A very serious and important issue has been debated over at the great halls of the Keep. What is the best pumpkin color? The residents of the Keep have been seen arguing about this issue for a while now, and now it's time for all of us to help settle the matter. By throwing food items at each other. Naturally.

It's time for the Great Pumpkin War!

Rules:
-The competition will run from October 29th up to and including November 4th.
-There are three teams: Orange, White and Purple. The teams will be led by moderators.
-You will be assigned to a team randomly. Signing up for teams starts now, and you can sign up at any time during the event, right up till the end. up until November 3rd 5AM EDT. Teams will be first assigned at the start of October 29th. To sign up, post in this thread: 8-community-discussion/214937-pumpkin-wars-competition-sign-up-only.html
-There will be a page showing the accumulated points of each team: pumpkinwars.php
-There will be an icon on each person's profile indicating which team they belong to.
-The Halloween Shop will carry four different pumpkins: A regular Pumpkin, a Jack-o-Lantern, a White Pumpkin and a Purple Pumpkin. Everyone who signs up for the pumpkin war will be given ten of each at the beginning of the competition on October 29th or at the time they are assigned to a team.
-You can buy up to 30 of each pumpkins at a time from the Halloween shop, but you can have up to 255 each if people throw them at you.
-To gain points for your team you will need to throw the pumpkins at other people.
-Different pumpkins award different amounts of points and have different probability of hitting the target.
-Throwing pumpkins at own team members may or may not reduce points from the team.
-Throwing pumpkins at people not on any team will not reward any points whatsoever.
-Throwing pumpkins may or may not also have other effects.

Weaponry:
As mentioned above, points will be scored by throwing pumpkins at others. The four different pumpkins will behave slightly differently:

Pumpkin: guaranteed to hit your target. Grants 1 point to your team if thrown at a member of another team.

Jack-o-lantern: is just as likely to hit or miss your target. Grants 3 points to your team if it hits a member of another team. If thrown at a member of another team and it misses, the other team gets 2 points.

White pumpkin: is slightly more likely to hit than miss your target. Grants 2 points to your team if it hits a member of another team. If thrown at a member of another team and it misses, the other team gets 1 point.

Purple pumpkin: has a random chance of hitting your target. Grants randomly 1-5 points to your team if it hits a member of another team. If thrown at a member of another team and it misses, the other team gets randomly 3-5 points. If thrown at a member of your own team, reduces randomly 3 to 5 points from your team.

If any of the pumpkins are thrown at people not in any team, no points will be awarded. If a person who is not in any team throws a pumpkin at a person who is in a team, no points will be awarded.

Each pumpkin also has a chance of handing out random % hatchlings of three of this year's Halloween creatures regardless of if the thrower or the target are a member of a team or not.

Prizes:
-There will be prizes for participation as well as even more prizes for the winning team. :wee:
