Welcome to Survivor: Nexus!

An anomaly has occurred. An inter-dimensional storm called "The Nexus" has appeared and it threatens to rip the worlds apart. This storm has ripped holes in the fabric of space-time, and now the universes of Warcraft, Starcraft, Overwatch, and Diablo are all colliding. 24 of the strongest champions from each realm have been called by the storm, and here, they will all do battle in order to determine who is the one person that can control the power of the Nexus. Can you feel the call of the storm? Is this your moment to shine?

Survivor: Nexus is an anonymous Survivor game for 24 players. The game may feature heavy twists that may confuse and confound some newer players, so while we will be accepting newbie applications, we strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with how anonymous Survivor works on Mafiascum.

APPLICATION FORMIf you'd like to sign up for this game as a player or spectator, please fill out this application form.


GLOBAL RULES
[A01] This is a game. You should play to have fun, and to win. You should not prohibit others from doing the same. You should show respect to all participants at all times. We understand this is a game that deals with a lot of emotions, and you should feel free to show that emotion -- just don't push it too far. Where "the line" is will be handled on a case by case basis.

[A02] This game is anonymous. You should at no point hint at your own identity, or communicate with any person about the game outside the private message system unless permitted to by the mods.

[A03] You should not take any action which disrupts or undermines the integrity of the game. You should also not take any action that brings the game into disrepute. This includes, but is not limited to, cheating in or explicitly seeking to break challenges, communicating with players you are not permitted to, communicating information using screenshots or PM forwarding. If in doubt, ask.

[A04] If there is a problem, or there has been a mistake made, discuss it with a mod.

[A05] In superficially breaking one of the rules in this ruleset, an Official Warning will be given. If the breach is substantial, or a second breach of any named rule is made, discretionary sanctions will be applied. If the breach if excessive, or a further breach is made after sanctions, you will be modkilled. This is your only (unofficial) warning.

[A06] We reserve the right at any time to implement new rules. We reserve the right to use our discretion in disciplining players as we see fit, if a situation not covered by these rules arises, using A05 as a guide. We reserve the right to refrain from disciplining players if we believe the offence is sufficiently minor. Should these rules be substantively altered at any time, you will be informed.

FORMAT

[B01] Generally, in Survivor, players are split into tribes and participate in challenges. After each challenge, losing tribes must vote off one of their own, in a secret vote. After a period of time, the tribes merge. The last player standing wins.

[B02] While B01 describes a general game, it is not binding. This specific game as it is designed may deviate considerably from that formula, without notification.

[B03] You may only PM members of your tribe. You may use any provided forum spaces to communicate with anyone who has access to them.

[B04] You will have a confessional that only the mods, spectators, and you can read. We expect players to make at least one post in their confessional each game round.

MECHANICS

CHALLENGES

[C01] Each round may have immunity challenges and/or reward challenges.

[C02] All outcomes are final, subject to A04.

[C03] Winners of immunity challenges will be safe from elimination that round, and will not be eligible for being voted out in a tribal council. Winners of reward challenges will be eligible for a reward, as described in that challenge.

[C04] A range of challenge styles has been designed, to test different skills. We cannot provide for all players all the time, but we have tried our best to make challenges as level and fair as possible.

TRIBAL COUNCIL

[D01] Each round will have at least one tribal council.

[D02] All outcomes are final, subject to A04.

[D03] Tribal councils will always last 24 hours from notification. A failure to vote will cause the offender to self-vote. Repeated self-votes, deliberate or accidental, may result in punishment, as per A01 and A05.

[D04] You may modify votes at any time, but please use a new post to do so. The moderation team will not alter council results due to a missed edited post. This is your only warning.

TRIBAL COUNCIL TIES

[E01] In the event of a tie at a council, a revote will take place. Only those players tied for the highest number of votes will be eligible candidates. Those eligible candidates will not be able to vote.

[E02] Reward items will carry through a tie vote. Reward items, unless otherwise stated, may not be played in a revote.

[E03] If a plurality is not found in a revote, or there is otherwise still a tie, all non-tied players without immunity, whether via Individual Immunity or via Rewards, will randomly draw a rock. The player who draws the sole purple rock will be eliminated.

[E04] Should there be only four players remaining in the game, a tiebreaker challenge will instead take place.

TWISTS

[F01] Twists have been preplanned and placed ahead of time, to be enacted without provocation. Twists are not designed with any player in mind, but have been blindly designed. We have made every effort to ensure the fairness of twists.

[F02] Should there be a conflict between in-game explanations and these rules, such as the text of a Reward Item, that in-game explanation will supersede these rules.


For any further questions, please contact one of the mods on Skype or here on the forums!

Signups will last two full weeks: so, until 12:01AM EST on December 5th, 2016! At that point, final selections will be made, and casting notices will be sent out to all players. The game will begin a few days later. Please note: even if you are not immediately accepted, that doesn't mean you are out! We will be keeping a list of potential replacements in case we have any no-shows in the first 24-48 hours.

Reck and BRO are most definitely the guys to ask questions to! But we're all excited to have you and are looking forward to a great game with great players, so come join in! Also, just want to make sure one important section isn't lost in that main post:

The game may feature heavy twists that may confuse and confound some newer players, so while we will be accepting newbie applications, we strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with how anonymous Survivor works on Mafiascum.

The mods have made their first 12 selections for the game, meaning we only have 12 spots remaining!

Signups will close Sunday night at midnight, so if you want to play, this is your last stretch here to get in that application!

We expect to send out acceptance PMs on Monday evening and start the game on Wedensday evening.

SURPRISE! We're granted spectator access one night early. PMs are out now. :)

If you signed up to spectate and aren't a replacement and haven't gotten a PM, contact a mod ASAP!
