It's Rumble, the game where you fight with other superheroes with player-created powers that you bid on. Except you're at a 99 cent store, and you're just normal people with a bunch of cheap items around you. Whatever.

The rules can be found here.
To join, simply /in in this thread and send me a PM with 2 powers.
If you don't want to pick any powers, PM the mod and he'll select two powers on your behalf.
Once I have received all powers I will reveal the powers and the bidding phase will begin.
Communication in private will be permitted after the bidding phase has begun.
Deadlines will be 48 hours.

Bidding has begun! Before y'all go bid on Powers, here's a few rules to go over:
- Please PM your bids. You do not have to bid on every power shown.
- Private communication is allowed.
- In event of a tie, a rebid will happen between the tied players.
- Bids will be done randomly, unless stated otherwise. If you don't have enough money for a bid, the bid will not happen.
- You can discard any Power you get, but this will not refund the energy spent.
- If you have any questions about a Power, tell me and I will DM the creator of the power the question.

Membership CardWho needs a membership for a dollar store? This power will be bid upon before any others. When deciding the winning bid for subsequent Powers, your bids count as 20% more (rounded down to the nearest integer), however you will only need to pay the original amount if you win the bid.

Static MinefieldCost 20: All players/AI who attack have to roll 1d4. If anyone rolls a 1 then the minefield explodes causing everyone who attacked to be paralyzed and all of their attacks be set to 0 because they can't move.

Russian DollGive up all actions this turn and you cannot be successfully targeted either, return as a slightly smaller version of yourself with two thirds your old Power.

LeechSpend X Energy to give another player a Leech.
The Leech sucks X/3 from a player each turn

Refrigerator MagnetGain 10 cents at the end of every round.

Lucky Rabbit's FootIf nobody attempts to attack you this round and you spend 0 on defense, double your money.

Chewing GumNot to be used as an adhesive. At the end of each Round, raise your Energy to that of the opponent with the lowest Energy that is higher than your own. If you are the player with the highest Energy, instead lower your Energy to the opponent with the highest Energy.

Power NapCost: All Remaining Energy: Doubles defense for the round, and gives double the energy put into Power Nap.

Can someone explain Power Nap, I doth not get it.

  • Does it double everyone's defense for the round?
  • "gives double the energy put into Power Nap" - what does this mean exactly?

If static minefield goes off will lucky rabits foot double energy, since no one was able to attack?

The wording of Lucky's Rabbit Foot says if an attack is *attempted* on that user.

Lucky's Rabbit foot would require no *attempted* attacks on the user. Whether the attempted attack is successful or unsuccessful would not be relevant.

It only doubles the defense of the player who uses Power Nap.

Only the energy put into Power Nap gets doubled.

I thought Power Nap required one to use all their energy?

The cost is all of your energy that isn't put into defense.
