THE URPG OLYMPICS-Summer of 2012
Contestants will form teams ranging from a minimum of three to seven members. These teams will have to register in a sign-up thread at least 24 hours before the start of the games. The actual events will take place as following:
Battling: A tourney specifically for this event will be set up. For every player a person beats, a certain amount of points will be awarded (factors affecting amount of points to be determined). At the end, those points are added to their team score.
Stories: A knock-out style writing competition. There will be several rounds, the amount determined by how many stories are entered. It will involve a kind of play-off competition where two stories are voted on every day (picked at random) to decide which is the very best.
Role Playing: There can be a park event based around how many Pokemon can be caught in a set amount of time. Judges for the event can give extra points for creativity or dock them for lack of effort.
Contests: A contest tourney will be set up, with points awarded depending on how one scores in the different kinds of contests (R/S/E, D/P/Pt, and B/W)
Art: Because the rt category is so new, the competition for this section is TBA, but will likely be similar to the stories competition.
To sign up for an event, one must be a member of a team. You can't participate in an event without signing up (to prevent, for example, people in the battle tourney from challenging newbies and beating them over and over). Once the games have started, it is impossible to sign up for new events.
At the end of the games, points will be tallied up for each event, and handed out to each team. Additional points will be given out for various achievements (like the person who completes the most battles, etc) The team with the most points wins bragging rights, money and possibly a Pokemon of rank to be determined, for each member. Individual prizes will be handed out as well (such as most points earned, etc).
The suggested length of the games will be one month, set some time during the summer of 2012.
