ELDER SCROLLS BATTLEGROUND

The Elder Scrolls foretold an event. A great gathering of the greatest warriors. They would settle who is the strongest then and there.

A call went out to all corners of Tamriel, through both time and space, calling for the greatest warriors to descend to the grandest of arenas.

With varying skillsets and abilities, they came. Ready to fight.

The first order of business was the name the Battlemaster. The overseer of the games who would choose one of the combatants each day. (The other is chosen by the town via vote.) He would rule for two days, then the position would be up for reelection. A single person could serve two terms. The only way to remove a person from the Battlemaster position during a term is to vote him into the arena and watch them die.

The first day's Battlemaster vote would be anonymous. PMs should be sent to the Arena Patrons, BeerBaron and ImBrotherCain. Once your PM is sent, you may not change your vote. So vote carefully and wisely.

Future Battlemaster votes will not be anonymous. They will be done in the thread.

The Battlemaster cannot be killed at night. Each night, he will choose one of the combatants for the next day's events.

The winning combatant cannot be chosen by the same source two straight days. If he is chosen by the Battlemaster and wins, he cannot be chosen by the Battlemaster the net day. The town can, however, vote him in.

I'm thinking that this day will go by at a much slower pace than usual. It's mid day on a Wednesday. We should let people get the opportunity to lobby for the position if they want it before we start voting.

Remember, the first vote appears to be secretive, so no reason to vote in here.

There are actually werewolves in the Elder Scrolls. It's like a contracted disease. So if BB and IBC added that in, the fact that you aren't now (if you actually aren't!) doesn't mean you won't be later.

My sister's water just broke, so I may be in and out this evening! I'll bring my laptop with me so I can log on when I can. I'm gonna be an uncle, lads! :D

By posts in the SKYRIM thread, it goes me, Killswitch, Caddy, Raiderz, Ngata, Cigaro, and then Bulldogs. Anyone else has under 10 posts. So if we want a guy with TES knowledge for Battlemaster, then these are the guys to choose from.

Killswitch and Caddy are good options since they're #2 and #3 respecitvely in the SKYRIM thread, and they both played in the Gladiator game. Caddy may be the better candidate since he's got the experience and proven mental chess-match skills, but I think Killswitch has a better knowledge of the game which is vital for a decision maker. Who knows their allegiances though.

If people want to elect me BM because I've posted the most about Skyrim and TES, then I'll accept the responsibility. I feel like, as far as BM's go, I would make a solid one. Good needs a proper BM in order to combat evil. If your BM is a bad one, then you're just being held back by your BM. Our BM's will last two days, but if we have a good BM, then we'll be able to have the same BM again later. It's an important decision, and having a BM isn't always a smooth process. A rough BM could prove fatal.

Congrats man! I know it sounds cheesy, but my niece totally changed my life. She is awesome. Being an uncle is such a kickass job too, because you can be the cool guy who gives a ton of sugar and gifts but doesn't have to deal with the no sleep or changing poopy diapers! Unless you babysit, and then you have to change diapers all day long. That is fun.

I'm leaving from work and will be out most of the evening but I will try to get on and post more late tonight. Really excited to see where this game goes. I was shocked at all the factions in the Gladiator game. How many will be in this one? I assume at the very least the fighters and mages guilds, maybe the imperial legion, thieves guild, even the dark brotherhood (night killers?) or the blades.

So how does the two hour limit work? Most votes cast within that timespan? Interesting to see ten votes already cast since no ones really made a case, but judging by seven different vote receivers, appears like its probably mostly idiots voting for themselves. Only skimmed through parts of this thread, going to read whatever I've missed now.

2 hours left to get your vote in, person with the most total votes at 6:40 pm (EST) is Battlemaster

I'm simply confused as to what exactly 'only votes within that timespan will count' means. Last game there was the run-off, which reset all votes, so is that the situation, or does it simply mean all current votes stand and any remaining have to be cast within the next two hours.

I think it means that there's a chance that IBC and BB aren't going to be on right at 6:40 to declare the victor so whenever they are on after that, they will only tally votes made before then.

Either way, reading through, only two posters really seemed to present themselves as options.

TH offered himself and has knowledge of the series which would be beneficial, but while I appreciate his funnies, its hard to trust him because of it. Almost impossible to get a read on him, although last time he brought out the funnies he was evil.

killxswitch has been dropping knowledge in this thread and TH vouched for him as knowledgeable. At the same time, he's relatively new to the game. That could be bad simply because he may have no idea what he's doing, or could be good as we'll probably be able to see his shenanigans easier.

Of course, if the races of Tamriel should decide to give me the position I so nearly gained in the arena...

Congrats man! I know it sounds cheesy, but my niece totally changed my life. She is awesome. Being an uncle is such a kickass job too, because you can be the cool guy who gives a ton of sugar and gifts but doesn't have to deal with the no sleep or changing poopy diapers! Unless you babysit, and then you have to change diapers all day long. That is fun.

Thanks a ton man! I'm sitting outside the delivery room now. It really hasn't dawned on me yet, to be honest. This one is my oldest sister, and she's having a boy named James Aidan (he'll go by Aidan). And my second oldest sister just found out today that she's having a girl, who is due in November. It hasn't hit me that my sisters are having kids of their own, and that our family's next generation is being born. So crazy.

But you better know these kids are going to be spoiled rotten! Aidan will become my pupil, and will grow up to be a mighty Pokemon trainer! Can't wait to be the fun, awesome uncle!

After contemplating, I now believe that I must throw my hat into the ring. The Elder Scrolls are the very essence of our world, both past and future. They have prophesied a great tournament in which the best fighters of Tamriel would gather for, so a true Hero can be revealed.

The tournament shall soon begin, there can be no doubt now. But will the prophesied Hero truly emerge? This is not known. The Elder Scrolls are a most fickle creation. Their prophecies are not infallible, nor are the Scrolls ascertainable to all.

Some will come forth and speak of working to bring about the prophecy, but many shall be false seers. They will come forth and name names, citing the Elder Scrolls for their actions, but in truth, the Scrolls shall appear as nothing but random drawings to their eyes. They will corrupt the prophecy for their own gain, and the Hero Tamriel was promised shall not appear.

Revealing the prophecy is not without its side affects. The more truth I see, the less world I shall see. Soon I will not be able to see at all. But the Elder Scrolls are greater than any one man, and I am willing to sacrifice my sight to bring about the prophecy. My blindness will eventually prohibit me from service, and another shall need replace me, but I must serve the Elder Scrolls nonetheless. Therefore, I do declare my willingness to serve as battlemaster, so that I may interpret the Scrolls and help bring about the Hero the prophecies foretold.

A dense fog and overcast sky for Day 2 of the events reflected the mood well. While yesterday's Battlemaster selection was full of celebration, this day was much darker. Someone would see their life come to an end...

That person could possibly be the Battlemaster's pick. Cigaro handed off the scroll to the arena announcer who walked towards the center of the battlegrounds:

http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Moon_Sugar_%28Morrowind%29

Yup yup! In the game, Moonsugar is an ingredient for a potion called Skooma, and both are treated like illegal drugs. Skooma just restores Stamina though, and doesn't really hurt you and you don't experience any of the addictive affects that the lore tells of. So perhaps taking some will give a person a boost in the arena.

On the other hand, Uncle Sweetshare is insane and killed a bunch of people in the game. So yeah. Congrats Broth!

When I received news that I was indeed the battlemaster, I stepped outside into the crowd and looked for a fighter. But none stepped forward. As I walked through the camp, I heard conversation, but none of fighting ability. It appeared no one was willing to introduce themselves to the battleground on its first day.

With no one willing to submit their name, I was left with no choice but to consult the Elder Scrolls. They foretold the prophecy of the great tournament, and the prophecy of the Hero of Tamriel, so I looked to see if they offered guidance for the first day of battle. And as I looked into the Elder Scrolls, a number appeared, and the number was 23. But it was just a number, and now we must discover what it means. Is it the number of the Hero of Tamriel, is today the beginning of his journey to ride Tamriel of the power of guilds? Or is the number of a guild member himself, a number that need be erased?

As I mentioned earlier, I am not "factioned" although the way all you guys keep using "faction" is suspicious to me (although maybe that's a holdover term from last game?) considering we're supposed to be killing off the guilds.

I am just as curious about why Cigaro chose me as the rest of you honestly.

Cigaro
06-14-2012, 11:50 AM
Can somebody with some knownledge tell me how much and what kind of factions are we facing ? or give me a link so I can somewhat be able to follow :p

Posted earlier in the thread;

I'm leaving from work and will be out most of the evening but I will try to get on and post more late tonight. Really excited to see where this game goes. I was shocked at all the factions in the Gladiator game. How many will be in this one? I assume at the very least the fighters and mages guilds, maybe the imperial legion, thieves guild, even the dark brotherhood (night killers?) or the blades.

Can Cigaro even figjt as Battle Master?

If chosen. And in case of pagetrap;

When I received news that I was indeed the battlemaster, I stepped outside into the crowd and looked for a fighter. But none stepped forward. As I walked through the camp, I heard conversation, but none of fighting ability. It appeared no one was willing to introduce themselves to the battleground on its first day.

With no one willing to submit their name, I was left with no choice but to consult the Elder Scrolls. They foretold the prophecy of the great tournament, and the prophecy of the Hero of Tamriel, so I looked to see if they offered guidance for the first day of battle. And as I looked into the Elder Scrolls, a number appeared, and the number was 23. But it was just a number, and now we must discover what it means. Is it the number of the Hero of Tamriel, is today the beginning of his journey to ride Tamriel of the power of guilds? Or is the number of a guild member himself, a number that need be erased?

You are suspicious because you want the position for yourselves its so blatantly obvious. Otherwise you wouldn't be scrutinizing a night one selection. I couldn't care less about Cigaro we were factioned in gladiators not Skyrim. But if you send Cigaro to the arena and he dies I think that makes Grizz the guy. (or is there another vote I forget) which makes me think that you guys are factioned with Grizz.

I just caught up and wanted to state that I'm suspicious of Cigaro's vote getting ability as well. DID I NOT SERVE YOU WELL BEFORE PEOPLE? Christ.


But on the whole Cigaro thing...I found this to be quite odd:

That's some pretty impressive game knowledge! I'm willing to see how things would unravel with you as Battlemaster.

Why the **** did DUnit hop all over Cigaro's ****? First off, Cigaro didn't say anything that made me think he has any particular special knowledge of the game in his "elect me" post. If DUnit wanted to show off a reaction like this, wouldn't it have made more sense as a reply to someone listed in TH's post which cited people with obvious Skyrim knowledge? (Which didn't include Cigaro)

Dr. Gonzo
06-14-2012, 12:18 PM
Good catch ATL. I could very easily see D being aligned with Cig. It seemed like members of Cigs guild pushed that game knowledge card hard day one (which I do not see as being useful at all when it comes to being battlemaster but that isn't the point). TH really was dropping knowledge but cig got the heavy support.

You would, would you? Which two fighters would you have nominated based on day one's posts, and why. On this day, I have only the Elder Scrolls to consult.

As for my votes, I do not find it surprising at all. Only TH presented a case, and it was at midday. I made my themed speech in the closing hours, where all who had not cast a vote needed to do so quickly in order to be counted. It does not surprise me that people would turn to me in the closing hours.

I can understand that I guess but ATL was still much more active as battlemaster. He lead the town from the time he was nominated. It seemed to me like you wanted to not piss anybody off more than anything which would make sense if you are evil because it would be tough to be battlemaster while evil and still appear good.

It is the second day, and its much more like the traditional first day than the traditional second. There is nothing to go on, I've never been one to go Gonzo, I'm not going to start now just because of my election. And as soon as I get on the site, I seen I am already being criticized and being deemed suspicious for my selection of Grizz. I do like to defend myself, and any name I toss out, with my admittance that as of now I do not have many suspicions, would simply appear as trying to deflect.

Two people had four. It is too much to gain two more votes, when I made my case in the closing hours when people were being pressed to vote quickly?

But you didn't really as much make your case as you made a themed post where you said you were willing to take on the role. You didn't say why you should or why you were most qualified for it. You just talked about the power of the scrolls and the prophecy, and made it out like you were forced to nominate yourself because there were no good candidates (which wasn't true since Killswitch was more active in the Skyrim thread and played in the Gladiator game - objectively, he was probably our best option). And all this was after you discredited me and Killswitch as being good Battlemasters by casting doubt on us.

I don't think that speech being in the final hours warrants 6 votes. It was just a themed speech, which while is cool and adds to the atmosphere, is just the same as me throwing in a few jokes, which you yourself pointed out as a negative for me. It's entertainment more than anything, and I'm not sure it carries enough weight to shoulder your whole campaign.

Your sudden ascension is the most suspicious event we have, if not only because it's the only concrete info we have, so I agree with the other warriors. Fight with honer, Battlemaster Cigaro.

Your sudden ascension is the most suspicious event we have, if not only because it's the only concrete info we have, so I agree with the other warriors. Fight with honer, Battlemaster Cigaro.

Vote: Cigaro

I did not cast six votes for myself, but it doesn't surprise me that on day one and with time running down, people decided that there was little difference between those who submitted their names, and they simply appreciated my posts. After all, even though I said I couldn't trust you and your funnies, they garnered you the most support up until my post, and likely you were one of the four-vote gainers. So you're funnies gain you four votes, yet it makes no sense that my themed post in crunch time would gain me a total of six?

And hey, I played in the Gladiator game too!

D also claimed no knowledge of Elder Scrolls in his first post before following with the one you quote. Suddenly he knows enough to say Cig has such great knowledge?


I'm curious as to which two, and why.
Hahaha. That is some pretty terrible logic FE. You have to admit. Makes me very fishy about you that you are trying to "stir the pot", like you admitted you were doing earlier today.

The fact that I know NOTHING about this game made me even more impressed with what Cigaro said. You could be an idiot or a well versed person ... I think both agree that his words showed proof that he understands the theme. ...and for that, I voted for him. Nobody else stepped forward with anything close to advanced as he did!

If I was in the same guild as him, I probably wouldn't have supported him so openly....and right away! no less. Too obvious! I kind of questioned whether I did the right thing by voicing my support after no one else commented about him. I felt like I was on an island.

But it was either him or TH for me. ...and since TH said his sister was in labor, I didn't think he'd be around for the first 2 days as much. Though he did include Cigaro as one of the names of guys who posted a lot in the skyrim thread. So that's what I went with.

My sister's water just broke, so I may be in and out this evening! I'll bring my laptop with me so I can log on when I can. I'm gonna be an uncle, lads! :D

By posts in the SKYRIM thread, it goes me, Killswitch, Caddy, Raiderz, Ngata, Cigaro, and then Bulldogs. Anyone else has under 10 posts. So if we want a guy with TES knowledge for Battlemaster, then these are the guys to choose from.


There was reasoning behind my vote for him. I didn't know he was going to win so shortly after my vote, but I figured enough people must have been impressed with what he said, the same way I was impressed.

But to prove I'm NOT with him. Let's see him battle his own nomination!

When I received news that I was indeed the battlemaster, I stepped outside into the crowd and looked for a fighter. But none stepped forward. As I walked through the camp, I heard conversation, but none of fighting ability. It appeared no one was willing to introduce themselves to the battleground on its first day.

With no one willing to submit their name, I was left with no choice but to consult the Elder Scrolls. They foretold the prophecy of the great tournament, and the prophecy of the Hero of Tamriel, so I looked to see if they offered guidance for the first day of battle. And as I looked into the Elder Scrolls, a number appeared, and the number was 23. But it was just a number, and now we must discover what it means. Is it the number of the Hero of Tamriel, is today the beginning of his journey to ride Tamriel of the power of guilds? Or is the number of a guild member himself, a number that need be erased?
You gotta admit... the way Cig is playing this game is making it fun! Doesn't really tell us why he chose Griz, but I enjoy anytime the theme of the game can be incorporated into people's posts.

Also, I didn't play the Gladiator game... so umm.. I'm already guessing that there are not your typical mafia roles, but are there Serial Killers? How do people die at night? Are there protectors and investigators? Or do we just die in the arena?

I tried following along on my phone while I was AFK but I just got all caught up now. Here is a list of people I'm suspicious of:

Killxswitch - Either he's dull and hasn't caught on to what I've been saying, BB and IBC gave everyone differently worded win conditions after last game, or he doesn't have a town-aligned win condition. Wooty and Ngata fall into this category as well.

SuperPacker - He was quick to jump on the KILL GONZO thing and was quick to jump on Cigaro as well to the point where he stated this:

Don't see why we're all so reluctant to vote for Cigaro. It seems very obvious that he's not on our side.

He may be right but I think its hard to say anything is "obvious" at this point.

Cigaro - 6 votes seems like a lot but I can also see how that post he made would sway people to vote for him.

Shane - Hasn't posted at all (although he hasn't been anywhere on the forums).

Gonzo vs. Flying Elvis has been entertaining. I was seriously just joking around when I voted for Gonzo earlier because I know how easy it is to get him going about early-game dying.

All that being said...

Vote: Cigaro

If I kill the battlemaster, do I get to become battlemaster?

I agree. Cigaro was roleplaying in the Gladiator game, as well. It adds nice flavor.

As for roles, anything goes, I'd guess. Glad game had factions with no ability to kill except in the arena. The % of good v. evil players was different, and the slaves had a champion that could recruit, allowing him to have knowledge of who other slaves were if he chose one (kill / recruit, depending on the target's alignment) so it was a pretty solid mindfuck.

Unvote: Cigaro

Simply as a tip of the cap to the flavor you've added. FWIW - that's what made me so damn suspicious in the Batman game. Damn teenage biddy . . .

Also, can anyone really explain why six votes is a lot? Am I missing something? Like I said early, TH's funny post garnered him four posts, my themed post in crunch time when everyone was pressed to vote gained me just two more. I guess I don't see the excess of six votes out like nineteen.

I'm not sure how many votes I ended up having, but I'm fairly certain me being the most active player in the Skyrim thread was what would have warranted anyone's vote for me. I hope people voted for me because of my knowledge and passion for the game, and the benefits that provides me as a player, and not because of a couple BM jokes. :D

And hey, I played in the Gladiator game too!

To me, it's that you garnered 6 votes so late in the game that made me go against you. You got 6 votes in despite there already being appeals and likely a number of votes already being cast for people like TH with no reason for them to go to you. It reeks of a guild / faction holding and deciding who to rally around.

And people seeing from my post that I didn't simply say I knew about the series, but used knowledge was probably warranted anyone's vote for me. I don't really think anyone took the first day's vote serious enough to look through Skyrim Thread posts to make their decision.

That could be the very reason, that it was late in the day, no? No one other than TH had really made a case, people were probably trying to wait for something, and then I posted in the last two hours, people likely though, why not? Or....

As for that last sentence, I somewhat now agree. Seeing how quickly the selection of Grizz got flipped on me, I think some may have been waiting for someone who could be made to look suspicious to cast their name, and knowing that there was little to choose from by day one posts, immediately try and call that guy out, hope he's factioned and look better because of it.

It could go either way, you're certainly painting an interesting picture and I could have been a tad blinkered, but I do think that a number of people would have already voted prior to a run on votes for you. I need to research.
