    Tourney IDEA!!!

    This is just an idea, nothing official yet.

    I was thinking of a Greek Mythological Characters Tourney... Something which inspired me when we were learning about that in English class.

    The idea is to see how far you can get with a certain character, using a God as their template. Also, YOU would have to research the God/Human you are going to be.. As there are too many to list, but i have 2 examples here.

    Achillies - An Achean (greek) warrior who is invunerable ecxept for his feet (hence, achillies-heel). This would mean that you are a Barbarian, with no boots on, and you need to have a High-Defence armour on. You would also be very strong (most points in strength).

    Circe - An enchantress. She is a god who can enchant all men she sees. You would be a melee/ranged Enchantress, with really no restrictions, other than weapon must be a wand, and light armour.

    Feedback would be appreciated. Thank you

    Jeza

    Sounds interesting, Jezz. I may well be interested in this. You might want to set one or two out for each class, though, as it may be best to keep this sort of thing a little regulated and balanced.

    It certainly creates some interesting ideas, though, including such characters as Zeus, Hermes, Herakles, Artemis, etc.

    Zeus - A paladin who uses thrown weapons along with lit aura/synergies as thunderbolts.

    I forget the name at the moment, who was the god of storms? Windmaster druid with no pets.

    Wouldn't it be better if it wasn't only restricted to Greek gods. Must be a lot of interesting Norse, Egyptian, African, etc, gods out there that most people don't know quite as much about. Greek gods are alright but since Xena and Hercules :uhhuh: everyone already knows quite a bit about them. Also would this be the same as most other tourneys where it's HC and you have to live the longest untwinked? Or some other rating system?

    ok guys... i will start sorting something out.. it seems like i will get a bit of interest.. give me a couple days and i will get it going.

    yeah... too bad there isnt a female zeus (amazon with LF)

    @ Spook_Cell: i think it should stay greek, cause then there wont be soo many gods to choose from. i will get some system that is unique set up soon, please give me a bit of time.

    Bah. Do a Norse mythology tournament and I would be in.

    My wind druid is already named Woden, which is another name for Odin, who is the wind god. Also have a Hunter named Gabriel, for Odin was the leader of the Wild Hunt, he was nicknamed the Huntsmen, and what was another name for the Wild Hunt? Gabriel's Hounds.

    Yea this is quite an interesting tourney, mythological characters would be cool, maybe we could also incorporate clothing color choices into it, such as Zeus having to wear gold, etc. Meh, thats just me babling, but who knows...

    Either way, I would be interested, hopefully i can get my power supply delivered so i can get back on my computer and not having to mooch off of my dad's...

    Sounds Cool, Good Luck with it..

    I believe Zeus would have to use fist of heaven, holy shock.

    Too bad, I don't play D2 as much as before (only few MF runs per week). If I play Zeus, and get nice girls (we all know who Zeus is - he beat God of Love on attract girls!!!)... :lol:

    wait moment, my wife won't let me be Zeus any way. So good luck if you are single, even better luck if you have GF/wife. :thumbsup:

    Hmm, although not technically a god... Pandora anyone? She could only use items made out of the horadric cube....

    Hermes, a barb with a maxed increased speed.

    Poseidon, a trident wielding druid. Why druid? He sometimes have shape--shifting abilities to others.

    I'm not that creative in the morning... Good luck if you run this thing, it looks like a lot of fun, and it very creative. Cheers!
