Shopu, Totowai and Rigovali present Spellguard, Balmung's only 2v2 magic tournament! Test your teamwork and tactical skills in contests of magical strategy! You and a teammate must protect your team's shield generator, which protects you from the opposing team's spells. Your team's goal is to deactivate the opposing team's generator. The team which goes undefeated for the entire night will be rewarded a gil prize and bragging rights as the finest Spellguardians!
All are invited to spectate, and all mages are invited to compete! We only ask that spectators do just that, and not interfere with the event!
Every other Friday at 10 pm EST
Seagaze Markets at the Mist, 6th Ward
Mechanics and OOC:
Spellguard is a new RP event on Balmung that aims to take a tried and true formula and offer it from a new angle: 2v2! A team of two has a "node" that defends the team from their opponent's spells. While the node protects anyone within its shield, it can't protect itself! These defense nodes can take three hits before shutting off, and once that happens, the match is over. While the mechanics will still be similar to the /random vs /random you know from events such as the Grindstone and the Runestone, from an IC aspect this will open up opportunities for a lot of fun character interactions!
To participate, you and your teammate should arrive between 9:30PM and 10PM at Seagaze Markets and line up in the half-circle of Seagaze Markets. Once it's showtime we'll /yell for everyone to get in line, go over the rules, and will pair off teams with an opposing team. Matches are one-off competitions, with the winning team moving forward and fighting someone else in the next round. This process repeats until only one team is left undefeated!
Combat is thus:
