Hello, and welcome to Taskmaster! In this game our Taskmaster is going to make five teams of three people each perform some tasks for him. Why? Because he can; he's a very powerful man. Look at him.

Image


That's right, our Taskmaster is none other than our very own xRECKONERx. He has personally* devised a wide range of tasks and he demands nothing short of perfection in your efforts to perform them. The ones he likes will earn points! The ones he does not like will also earn points but not nearly as many. And when all the tasks are done, the winning team will receive a golden bust of Reck's head the title of First Ever Mish-Mash Taskmaster Champions.

So, how does this work? Image (READ THIS PART CAREFULLY; THIS GAME REACHES BEYOND JUST THE FORUM AND ENTERS THE REALM OF IRL. NOT BY MUCH, MIND YOU, BUT ENOUGH THAT YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR) Image

As the Taskmaster's assistant it has fallen on me to divide the tasks into two types: Live Solo tasks, and Team Tasks. I will present a list of the task names as well as any required materials. It will look something like (but not exactly like) this:

Live Solo Tasks: Choose one person on your team to sign up for each of these; everybody must do at least one solo task.

Task 1: Sample Pun Name
Materials required: Blindfold, three pairs of socks
Proof required: Video

Task 2: Another Pun Name
Materials required: Pen, Paper, Tape
Proof required: Photo

Task 3: Mystery Team Task
Materials required: None
Special: Two members of the team must do this task live

Team Tasks: Your team may choose when to start the timer on these, and then you all discuss how to do it together and submit your best idea.

Task 4: Sus Egg
Materials required: Egg
Proof required: Photo or short (<10 seconds) video
Time limit: 48 hours

Task 5: Yet Another Pun Name
Materials required: None
Proof required: Photograph
Time limit: 48 hours


For the team tasks, you will just inform me something like "Hey, we want to try the Sus Egg one!" and I'll give you the details and start the timer. Unless specified otherwise your team can do as many "attempts" as you want within the 48 hours but in the end one entry will be used as the "final" submission. For an example of what these can look like, here are some examples from a Taskmaster game I played in.

For the solo ones, those will be performed live on a Skype or Discord call with me. You will not know what the task is until it is time for you to perform it. Image Some of the live tasks will require me to record the video to show the Taskmaster your attempt. If this is a major problem for you let me and your teammates know; there are some tasks where only an audio call is strictly necessary and I can steer you to those. Image However, each member of the team must do at least one live solo task, so hopefully you have two and preferably three people who are comfortable recording themselves.

***

How will we find out who wins?

As soon as all the teams have done all the tasks I will collate all the submissions into a handy presentation and then we will do a call on Discord with the Taskmaster and members of the teams where I will show the task attempts (Not the full attempts necessarily; they will be edited for time and player comfort with privacy) to our Taskmaster and he will award each one between 1 and 5 points. His word is final; if you think you deserve more points then you are wrong because he is the Taskmaster and we are doing these tasks for him.

This call will be open to an audience but people aren't required to be on video for it. I imagine everybody will be paying attention to my screen-shared Powerpoint anyway.

How long will this take?

Excellent question! There is no immediate rush to get everything done; if everybody somehow does all the tasks in a week then we'll make that work but if tasks trickle in slowly and it takes a month or two then that is perfectly fine too.

How many tasks our there?

There are 7 Live Solo tasks and 8 Non-live Team Tasks.

How do I sign up?

Sign up in this thread! We are looking for five teams of three people each, so either recruit your friends or post in here that you are interested and wait for likeminded people.

I have a question that isn't answered here!

Feel free to ask it! I know this is a new game and new format for MS so I expect there to be some questions.


Current Teams:

1) Vash's Bad Ideas v het and xof's better ones (VashtaNeurotic, het, xofelf)
2) Unnamed Second Team (CaptainMeme, CreativeMod1, PrivateI)
3) Unnamed Third Team (brighteningskies, lilith2013, Menalque)
4) The Backbreaking Factory (Skelda, Noraa, T-Bone)

I'm in for any team that'll have me, but I'm worried I'll mess up the "CM" vibes.

Name isn't locked in yet but submitting a team of CM1, myself, and Monty!
Sometimes when I'm thinking of a track to submit, I think to myself "okay I could submit X, but I know a lot of people won't care for it, there's no point in wasting their time and mine". Glad to see [CaptainMeme] isn't burdened by such thoughts.

Look, they told me about this being a thing without saying anything else, and then I made a team and then they said they wanted to play.... Not my fault

Although, I wanna destroy them so, dunno if I'd wanna be on a team with them xD hahaha

Right, I've sent the list of tasks out to the three registered teams. Want to see them too? Then sign up with your own team!

How much will these tasks rely on skill, ability or talent and how much will they be things you can just kind of brute force by sheer spunk and personality? Because I do think this sounds fun and I would be happy to play, but I also don't want to be garbage and drag my team down, and given my track record with MS challenges, I think that's a reasonabld concern lmao

If anyone else feels this way, I would love to link up with you and form team Kinda Shitty But Fun!

Basically what I'm saying is that I would like to play, but I think there's a chance I could be shockingly, hilariously, catastrophically bad at this, and I want a team at peace with that possibility.

Skelda, the point more often than not is to be creative and funny. Skill is actually not exactly wanted.

I do think I can be funny, even if sometimes unintentionally. I guess sign me up as long as a team will have me lol

I reserve the right to be garbage at any and/or all tasks though.
