That's the fun part. We need a country to host the location of the DSA Olimpia Games. Last year, the games were held in the SLD city of Talenus. This year, it will be somewhere else in the DSA. Come, volunteer to host the games! You can volunteer until June 7th. After that, we will hold a vote to democratically chose which volunteer will host the games. You can just write on this thread that you want to host the games.
How Do I Sign-Up to Compete In The Games?
You will need
- A Team Name
- A Team Roster (aka the names) of 5 competitors
- Sign-Ups will end on June 10th. None after that day will be accepted
- After June 10th, you can sign-up your contestants for whichever 5 events you wish to compete in. That's because the number of events will depend on how many nations are competing
How Do I Make Sure That It's Me Who Wins?
The Olimpia Games will be scorinated using Xkoranate. On there, a competitot's skill/ability can be ranked. The scale will be 0 (not good) to 5 (probably going to take home every medal) and all competitors will start at 1 (unless you want one of them to be 0). A higher ranking will result in a greater chance of winning events (not a guarentee you will win, but increases your chances). To increase your team's skills, you gotta do some Role-Play about the Olimpia Games (that's how it usually works. The more RP you do, the more rewards you get).
-Some RP: Rise your whole team up to 2
-Decent Amount: Whole team up to 2 and three members up to 3
-Good Amount: Whole team up to 2, three members up to 3, and two of those up to 4.
-A Lot of RP: Whole team up to 2, three members up to 3, two of those up to 4, and one of those up to 5
As you can see, role-playing about the Olimpia Games gets you quite the benefit.
Some RP Ideas
- Talk about your teams. What is their background? Their hopes? Their history?
- Make some news reports on the Olimpia Games.
- Do some in-character responses. Who are people reacting? Any Growlr posts (DSA version of twitter)?
- Volunteer to host the games. Get some pictures of your Olimpia stadium, your location, anything really.
- Know how to make pictures? Make some uniforms for your players. Design some Olimpia Art. Maybe some posters or promotional merchandise or coins or, if skilled enough, a video.
