ASNZ Invitational @ The Infirmary: Saturday 9 March 2013

29 posts in this topic

We're holding another day game at The Infirmary!

Club Members, Associates and affiliated ASNZ Club Members are welcome to attend. ANY OTHER GUESTS, including probationary members, will need permission to attend.

SCENARIO: BLOCK WAR!!!!!

With recent Real-Estate issues encountered in Mega-City One, Hawkes Bay District Judges have decided to reduce one of two neighbouring blocks to rubble. With Block 01 and Block 02 Fighting to retain their homes, they're desperate to win the Judge's Favour and make those rival blockers deader'n'dead. To accomplish this, Each Block's "Residents Committee" has outlined several objectives to ensure their supremacy and survival.

Background

Mega-city One

Mega-City One evolved out of a growing urban conurbation stretching from Boston to Washington, which took form in the 21st century to cope with the escalating population crisis in America and - due to the high crime rate - led to the introduction of the Judge system. Mega-City One was one of three major areas to survive the nuclear war in 2070, due to an experimental laser missile-defence system built not long before. Quickly growing outwards, Mega-City One swelled to hold most of the population of the East Coast, reaching 800 million by the end of the century.

City Blocks

Blocks are huge and can be considered to be a small town in themselves. Each one will typically possess a hospital, gymnasium, school, and shopping district. A citizen can quite literally live their whole lives without leaving their block. Due to the high unemployment rate, boredom is rife among citizens — this, coupled with the high loyalty citizens develop to their blocks, leads to many "Block Wars", riots (more like small wars) between two or more blocks.

Blocks are named after famous or historical figures, often with current events in mind. A typical example — shortly after the Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise separation there was an episode with block war breaking out between the "Kidman" and "Cruise" Blocks.

Law

Mega-City One's laws are harsh, with many crimes not found in present-day law. Possession of sugar, for example, is illegal, as is the smoking of tobacco outside of licensed Smoketoriums, and coffee is banned as an illegal stimulant. The laws are enforced by the Judges, who are a combination of judge and police officer. Ordinary laws are enforced more harshly than the present day, reflecting the crime rate. Judges impose immediate sentences on the spot, usually lengthy sentences of imprisonment (or "encubement"). In extreme cases even the death penalty may be imposed, although relatively sparingly compared with the present day. In contrast many criminals are shot to death while resisting arrest, and resisters who survive Judge assault often receive a whole life cube term.

Most ordinary citizens are sent to the Iso-Cubes, tiny cells located within huge prisons. These are designed for maximum rehabilitation in the shortest time possible, but ultimately the decision as to sentence rests with the judges. Sentences are usually very long. However, the death penalty is not in wide use, and is reserved for mass murder or endangering the security of the city. In spite of this judges do regularly shoot perps dead in the course of combat.Firearm possession is only legal with the right firearms permit, which is very hard to obtain, the only real exception is in the cases of the Citidef units who may use heavy weapons (Though since Block Mania the security on these is extreme and they are only issued in wartime). However, in spite of this many firearms are in circulation, some sold on the black market while others are leftovers from the various invasions that have occurred over the past thirty years.

WHEN: Saturday 9 March 2013, 10am ready to chrono. We'll run as late as we can depending on numbers remaining.

WHERE: THE INFIRMARY (Former Waipukurau Hospital - 51 Porangahau Road, Waipukurau)

  • No Minimum Engagement Distance.
  • Our standard DBAD rules also apply - and will be outlined on the day.

Cheers Chris.

Thanks AHB for another epic day at the Infirmary!

I really enjoyed the Block Party scenario, great idea EightBall. The Judges were a lot of fun, even though R3CON sent me to the cubes.

Thanks to all the clubs that attended and made the day what is was.

It was also great to have our JohnnyThunder get awarded MVP by both teams. Even if it was mainly because he screams like a little girl :)

Like me, the TAR boys that attended are keen to game at the Infirmary again... and again... and again.
