That’s right…we’re doing an OCW Survivor. And, yes, it’s very much a blatant rip off of the TV show.
This thread will contain the rules of play. Any questions about the game should be asked within this thread. I will add on to this original post if any issues or further clarifications are brought to light that I never considered.
Current Roster Members – Eligible
Alumni – Eligible
Non-Members – Must post a roster bio on the roster bio forum and roleplay in one match every four weeks throughout the duration of the show OR until they are eliminated.
I will randomly draw names for each tribe once registration has ended.
Number of Participants
Ideally I’d like 16-20. With this being the first season, we may not get that many. So I’ll make it work with whatever number we’re dealt. I will CAP the show at 20.
The challenges will consist of either OCW or Pro Wrestling Trivia. All OCW trivia answers can be found in the show archives on the site. Two threads will be started, one for each tribe. It will then be a race against each other to give a complete and accurate answer. Once I have confirmed that the answer is correct it will be up to EVERY tribemate to post in the thread with a ‘present’ or ‘here’…basically checking in. Everybody MUST check into the thread from a tribe before they have completed the challenge. If one tribe gets the answer correct before the other tribe and 5/6 of their tribemates check in they cannot win until that sixth member checks in. All six must check in before the other tribe completes the task and has all of their members check in.
All answers and check ins will take place in the thread for your tribe for that week’s challenge in the Survivor Forum.
When we’re down to the individual portion of the game it will be much simpler. A quiz will be issued on the forums. Each participant can take the quiz once and once only. No help is to be provided. If it is found out that a person has cheated they can be removed from the game.
All challenges will begin on Tuesday at 7pm Central.
Once the competition has come to a close the losing tribe will have until Thursday evening to PM me their votes. You may only vote for one person and cannot vote for yourself or the person with immunity (should we be in the individual portion of the game).
The game will play itself down until we have two contestants remaining. At that point the 7 members of the jury will submit questions for the remaining contestants. Those contestants will answer these questions. The Q & A will be posted on the Survivor board. Once the Q&A is finished, the jury members will PM me their votes for the winner.
Each Friday evening a new show will be posted with at least one person being voted off during each posting.
What do you win?
First person voted out gets nothing. Every participant that survives being the first person out but doesn’t make the merge gets a win on the rankings page. Each individual that makes the merge but does not reach the final two will receive 2 wins on the rankings page. The runner up gets 3 wins. The winner gets 3 wins AND an Ascension Title Shot. If the winner is already a champion or Hall of Famer, they get an OCW Title shot. If the winner IS the OCW Champion then they get to hand pick their next challenger.
So there’s no roleplaying? Like, at all? Because this is an Efed and there’s ALWAYS roleplaying….
Nope, no rping. This is strictly a game of trivia and strategy.
Sounds fucking badass…when do we start?
Calm down. We hope to have our first show air Friday, April 7th. It will be no later than Friday, April 14th.
How does this work in character with what’s going on in OCW currently?
Great question. Really wish you hadn’t asked it. I’m going to go with the ‘this was taped months in advance’ cop out.
OCW Survivor Board
All OCW Survivor activity will be contained on the OCW Survivor Board.
The show will take place in the Amazon forest.
Characters or OOC
Probably gave this away a few questions ago…but this will feature your OCW characters participating. It will not be the handlers…given the prize structure, it would have to be an in ring OCW competitor.
Will Voting be Revealed?
After the game all votes will be revealed. To reveal the votes during the game could expose certain alliances.
Speaking of alliances…how do we go about making those?
Well if you’re an idiot I guess you could just do it on the board for everyone to see. If it were me, I’d probably handle it through PM.
Can all three of my characters play?
No. Only one character per handler for obvious reasons.
Can I send in segments for the show?
You can send in testimonials or statements…the things you see the players say when nobody is around, candidly. If you send something like that in I will post it into the show.
What about the actual challenges IN the show?
I’m just going to make those up, write them out.
I think that just about covers it…if there are any other questions…and I’m sure there will be, I always miss several things when I start something like this…please post them in this thread so we can cover everything before starting.
