Hey guys!

So, this has been tried before in the past and it didn't really work out for one reason or another. However, @Tape and I are itching to co-run our own AU Pandora Hunger Games. We've been tossing around ideas on how to run the past couple of hours and have tons of them, so we're just wondering how many of you may actually be interested in this sort of thing.

Because we want this to be a project that moves forward rather than stagnating, there absolutely would be activity requirements, so you would only be able to be involved if you are able to stay active as well as stay on top of your forum posts (because the AU forum does not count toward the activity check) and we have back-up plans for characters who do go inactive.

We'd love to be able to make this a big, fun thing and involve not only tributes but those who wish to be sponsors, escorts, mentors, members of the prep team, etc. Because, naturally, depending on how many people sign up, not everybody who wants to be involved will be able to be a tribute. If all goes according to plan, though, we want to be able to play out some pre-Games stuff, too, such as training/interviews/etc.

Because of how big of a project this is probably going to turn out to be and due to the fact that we want to be able to give people the freedom of having threads other than your standard AU single group threads, we may be making a sub-forum for it.

So basically, my question here is how many of you guys would be interested in this? We don't want to put all of the work into it only to have nobody sign up, after all. And if anybody has any suggestions, feel free to let us know since we are still brainstorming stuff like how to make deaths/damage/etc fair for everybody.

Yayyyy, glad to see there is interest! I have no idea when all of this will actually get started, maybe sometime next week, maybe sooner, but there's so much to think about.

At the moment, we are thinking that any characters with superhuman powers and stuff will be forced to wear those Battle Royale-style shackles, but they will be made from prometheus dust in order to render these characters affectively human and even the playing field a bit.

And so far, I'm thinking a dice roll + some stats for damage/death, but I'm not sure yet. I need to keep thinking about how this would work best. e.e

Oh! This sounds like fun! Hmm... I'm not sure if I'll be joining you guys for this but I would like to make a suggestion to make it easier on everyone. Perhaps you should make a sub-forum for this AU event? That way people can build alliances and stuff and just make it this huge thing!

I am not going to complain if there's no powers, because I totally understand WHY
but then the powered would be at a disadvantage cause they're not used to it?

idk I like powers because unfairness in the hunger games would create SO MUCH animosity between districts but like
that depends if we're doing an AU Panem/Pandora where this has always been happening? Or if this were to suddenly happen now in the current timeline?

I totally understand your point, Genie! But I also feel like if characters were allowed their abilities, the poor humies would still be at way more of a disadvantage than if it were the other way around. Though it's not true for all of them, most of the powered characters do have some sort of non-powered combat experience already and for those who don't, they would just be treated like your regular perfectly human tribute with zero special advantages. They would be offered training before the game so that they did stand a chance, so they wouldn't be given any less opportunity than any of the other tributes.

That said, if there is still a ton of opposition, I can put up a poll to see what you guys would rather do, but this is just my opinion on the matter!
