And so comes the fourth installation of Art Forum Battle Royale! Let the games begin!
This year the art forum battle royale will take place in the areas surrounding the Four Hearts Salt Refinery. Players (Your character) will contest, and battle for, control of the salt factory. You can make friends, you can make enemies, you can make friends with your enemies to betray your friends. Then betray your frenemies.
Areas in the map include, but are not limited to: the Four Hearts Salt Factory, The Salt Mines of Tomb-Blar, The Endless Sea of Salt, and The Plains of Salinity.
I would very much prefer a laissez faire approach to this. However a few rules are nessessary.
1.You must put effort into your drawings. No stick figures. If you've only been drawing for a short time I would also prefer you observe rather than participate. If you feel you have been drawing for a while, but you are not too good at drawing, consider waiting for someone to pick a fight with you instead of initiating an interaction.
I want to stress however there is no actual rule against participating if you really want to.
2.No Edgys. That isn't to say you can have a dark or grotesque character, or even a broody and miserable one. Just no characters along the line of "Dank Hill, evil dark night blood vampire one-winged dark angel brother of Hank Hill" or "One-Tap the elite dual-deagle wielding Call of Duty first-person headshoot man."
3.No invincibility. Self explanatory. If your character can survive impalement and/or a shot to the forehead that's fine. But you'd need illustrate it in an interesting way beyond just spouting "Wubbo Lubbanium E Dubania Dubere!~" and magically rematerializing.
Keep in mind you are very much allowed to introduce another character too.
4.Uhh idunno normal forum rules too. So no characters with shit vomiting dick nipples.
5. Break the rules! Just be funny about it.
>>>Q and A
>Can I only interact with people in the same area as me?
The different locales are for ease of access in regards to backgrounds. Do not feel like you must only pick and choose people who have the same location as you! Your character can move around freely after all.
>Can I have multiple weaker characters instead of one singular character?
Yes. The only rule is just don't harass everyone.
>Can my character be the central antagonist?
Preferably not. I have a plot set up if the thread reaches the point where an antagonist is needed. You are welcome to help said character and/or just be a dick to everyone though.
>What if I have a life emergency?
I would certainly hope not. If able, I ask you simply announce to everyone you can no longer participate so we are not kept waiting for you.
>What if I'm not that good?
As long as two and three are not violated, and your artwork isn't cringey, you are perfectly fine just having fun with the rest of us regardless of skill.
>What if my character, cannonically, generally murders everyone?
Just try to tone it down. No one-shotting everyone you interact with.
