*pops in

You guys can decide who starts things off once you both agree on the characters. The challengie would likely start things off but not always

Funnily enough I've probably been in less than 10 individual side battles. I did about four or so before we started ranks,not including tournaments, multiverse, and unfinished stuff. I remember two of them were poor Evvie getting killed. She did pretty good in the multiverse, though, killing the bad elves, I think winning as a team against some massive undead whatever he was, and a giant, who did end up killing her by throwing rocks but she lasted a while. I think our dragon bailed so we ended up loosing.

I'm not going to lie, I have no clue what your talking about since I'm new, but it sounds incredibly epic and would have loved to be a part of it.

Sure. I'm not sure how you'd like to go about it but if you want let's have like a sparing match. I can try to set it up- also sorry I was gone out of town for a week. Let's battle but would you want me to set the battle up or you? If you want to go ahead and let me know when it's ready or I'll do it

@seanmcchapman I Think I'll let you do the set up, seeing as how I'm still a little uncertain about the group's process of setting it up. Once I see a few more examples I'll be confident enough to set it up my self. I have my character lists thing also ready, so I think that's also good too, I'll edit them later to make them more detailed, with other things like actual ability mentions, ammo reservations,mana for spells , etc.

So. This may or may not have been answered previously but I'm a bit too lazy to read through all 23 pages of this thread to find out. I'm new here and I'm looking to get into some fights using my RPC. I have a CS prepared for him that I've been working on and developing for the better part of a year. So I'd like to know were I can find someone who would be willing to spar with me so that I can get a sense of how you guys do things here as well I'd like some opinions on my Character. Lastly I noticed theres a tournament set up here and I'd like to get in on that as well. I was undefeated on IMVU in terms of T-1 Deathmatches with over 25 victims falling to my character and I'd like to test my mettle against the inhabitants here.

Most people around here are pretty helpful. I'm too busy right now to fight you myself, but if you ask around in the Arena Chat thread I'm sure you'll find someone willing to give you a spar!

Make a character. If you want to do battle, you'll need a fighter- and character sheets are almost always shared before a fight, to make sure everyone sticks to their guns and doesn't start pulling powers or equipment out their ass.

Well first you will need to find the rules. I don't know for sure if they have a sticky post for the rules in the Arena thread or not.

Once you know the rules you can make an Arena Interest Check post. There you can show what charcter you would like to use and people can post theirs for a challenge.

Alternatively you can look for a post that someone else has made in the Arena Interest Check thread and take their offer.

In the interest of saving time, here's some general information and some answers I've given in the past about all this arena stuff.

Hi everyone! I'm new to the arena, so I don't really know how things work, and this seems like the best place to ask.

1. How exactly do you start/join/organize matches? I'm used to using Interest Checks, but I looked at a few and apparently that mostly goes on in the Chat and HQ threads. How does that work?

2. Do characters persist across roleplays? Again, I'm used to characters that are made for a specific RP, but a few things I've read here suggest otherwise.

3. Is there a place for story fights? That is, fights where the goal isn't for one character to win over another, but to write a story about the characters with the battle as part of the plot.

4. I'm sure I'll have more questions later, but for now, is anyone willing to RP with a newbie? Experience is the best teacher, after all.


Hey there, yes this is the best place for these sort of questions.

1. There are two main methods, one is using an interest check to send out a general challenge (ideally with a character, an arena, and a fighting style mentioned so people know what they're getting into.) Then, once a compromise is made on character selection and everyone is happy, you can upgrade to an OOC/IC and get started. Oh, or if you simply want to join a fight you can look through interest checks and declare your interest in the normal fashion.

The second method is to send out a challenge in the ranked area or the Arena chat thread, which most of the ranked people tend to frequent. The same process as before will also take place, where you will decide on characters etc.

2. Completely up to you, the Arena does allow for multiple instances and therefore unless you've joined a specifically persistent world (the Multiverse for example, which pops up from time to time, or a tournament) every arena fight is a self contained story. So, if a character dies you don't have to make that 'canon.'

3. Hopefully every fight will be a story fight, it's a misconception that Arena isn't still predominantly about telling a story, it's just through the medium of battle. Still, if you favour strong story telling elements over the competition, avoiding ranked battles and going for unranked instead is the answer. In an unranked fight the rules are more flexible and with very little on the line people are going to be more applicable to story elements.

4. Depending on what sort of power (tier) you want to fight at I might be able to indulge you in an unranked battle to cover some of the broad Arena concepts if you want. Tier is a little subjective, but I personally don't stray over the 'high powered' bracket with my characters. Which is somewhat applicable to street/city level destruction. I'm more around the powered/low powered bracket, think Vampires, Werewolves, Cyborgs etc.

These are the two important threads for talking with Arena peoples.

By nature, Arena RPs are mostly 1x1, so it's really just a matter of finding a partner.

Go to the Chat Thread and post your interest in fighting someone, one oughta bite.
