The Great Horse Race Hello all and all, Vandal here, telling you to hitch up you horse and come down to the Third Hall of Thundering Hooves. All are welcome. The Prizes are as follows 1st place- 300 Y 2nd place- 150 Y 3rd place- 50 Y Basic Rules Each participant will create characters with 3 stats. They will have 15 points to distribute in this stats in any manner they see fit. The stats are Agility- affects the riders ability to stay on there horse and there ability to whip other horses Strength- affects the riders ability to stay on the horse and there ability to control it affecting speed Horse sense- not used during the race but used to determine the order in which participants chooses there horses The participants will chooses there steeds in order of there horse sense scores, with ties being broken by the person who posted there stats going first. Each stead has 3 statistics Speed - how fast the horse will run Endurance - How long the horse can run and take a pounding Fire - How difficult the horse is to control – affects the rider’s ability to stay on the horse. Each turn the rider has several options Ride hard - using there whip to make the horse go faster than usually and using up endurance. This also increases the risk of falling off the horse Run Steady - go at a steady pace, using some endurance but less than riding hard Go easy - hang back and conserve the horse’s strength In addition if a rider chooses to run steady or go easy they may choose to whip a horse that is near them. Details if you want to see them on how everything is calculated Spoiler : Spoiler: Whipping another horse A rider can only whip the horse to there left and right at the start (order determined randomly) and within one horse length during the race. If a rider chooses to whip an opponents horse he must make a “hit role” If he makes this hit role the opposing rider’s horse loses .5 endurance and the rider’s chance of falling off his horse is increased by 5%. If he misses the to hit role the rider whipping increases his chance of falling by 5% The equation for the to hit role is a 100 RNG that must be below ((2 + agility) * 10%) Staying on the horse. Each turn a 1-100 RNG for each rider this number needs to be above there fall chance for them to remain in the race. The fall chance equation is (.17 *(5 + agility + Strength – 2 * (fire)/ 40))*75) This number can be modified by the following factors Riding hard +5% Go Easy - 5% Whipped by another player +5% Speed The following is the basic equation that is used to determine distance travelled Ride hard 5*Speed + Strength + 20 RNG Run Steady 4*Speed + Strength + 20 RNG Go Easy 3*Speed _+ Strength + 20 RNG In addition after the first two turns an endurance adjustment comes into play. This endurance adjustment starts out as being weighted as .5 (in relation to the attributes above) and increases by.5 in weight each turn till is has a weight of 2 in the final turn. If two horses are within 5 distance points of each other are within a length. Endurance Each turn a horse spends energy running. The base amount of this reduction is based on the choice or riding speed. Ride hard 2 pts END Run Steady 1 pt END Go Easy .5 Pt END In addition Being whipped causes a .5 END lost Being in the lead at the end of a turn causes a .5 end lost (wind breaking) The Endurance at the end of the turn is used in the distance calculation from turn 3 onward. Breaking down If a horse goes below endurance it starts to break down and the following penalties occur All endurance costs below 0 are doubled The distance the horse travels is multiplied by 1- (END/10) The horse with the highest distance total and the end wins Please post for entry.
