Survivor: Legendary

Presented by Mallowgeno, Vijarada and CuddlyCaucasian

Reviewed by Xalxe, Large Social Mod xReckonerx


Game Description: This is a relatively simple Survivor game themed around the Legendary Pokemon for 18 players. The main twist of the season is that the tribes will start off as Fans v Favourites. which means we need nine new players to play! So tell your friends. We define "new player" as a player that has two or less survivor or big brother games on Mafiascum. Other LSG or outside experience doesn't matter. Knowledge of Pokemon is not at all mandatory but may assist in some challenges.

The other twist of the season is that, to help them settle in, each new player will be assigned a "coach" (flavoured as Pokemon trainers). These people, who will not stick around for the whole game, will only have access to one player's confessional, which means they can give more biased advice than spectators or moderators could. We would really appreciate if anyone signing up as an experienced player would also sign up as a coach as backup. The time commitment is significantly less.

To apply for this game as a player, coach or spectator, click HERE
Signups begin now and end at 10PM EST (or whenever) on Sunday the 27th
Rules
Rules 5a and 13 are non-standard, but read the rest anyway.
Spoiler: Rules
{ GENERAL RULES }

{01} This is a game. The main objective is to have fun; so no excessive flaming, spamming, or otherwise being a jerk.

{02} This is a game. The secondary objective is to win.

{03} We are not infallible, so if we make a moderating mistake, please point it out and we will correct it if needed.

{04} We have worked extensively to produce a game that is enjoyed by all involved. As such, we promise to offer each player respect but expect to be shown the same in return.

{05} Survivor Legendary is ANONYMOUS. All participants are strictly prohibited from so much as hinting to their own identities or implying another player's identity. If you are talking with other people outside of this forum, you must not state or imply that you are playing in this game. If you are talking with other players on this forum, try not to say anything that would allow people to easily ID you. Communication outside the private message system is also forbidden until otherwise stated. Failure to follow this rule can result in a variety of consequences ranging from a terse warning to one's elimination from the game. We reserve the right to determine the severity of possible infractions.

{5A} Trainers (see Game Mechanics rule 13) and the players to which they are assigned do not have to maintain anonymity with each other, and Trainers' identities are revealed to their new player at the start of the game. However, it is against the rules to disclose any information about your trainer's identity to any other player.

{06} Exercise common sense. If you are unsure as to whether an action conflicts with the rules, ask. Yes, this is a competition, but do not attempt to undermine challenges or game mechanics for your own gain. This violates both the spirit of the game and common in front of respect mentioned above.

{07} Private communication with players outside of your tribe or eliminated players is strictly prohibited. Any player found in violation of this rule will be penalized.

{08} Any and all posting about this game outside the provided forums unless SPECIFICALLY STATED is illegal.

{09} The posting of Private Messages (whether via text (paraphrasing is fine) or via image) in a public forum is explicitly disallowed. You may, however, post them in your confessional. You are also prohibited from taking a screenshot of private messages and showing them to other players. Forwarding is not allowed.

{9a} Don't send PMs to more than one person at once, which you can do on Proboards, but don't.

{10} The moderators may discipline any player that breaks the rules however we see fit, depending on the specific situation. We also reserve the right to implement new rules if needed.

{GAME MECHANICS}

{01} PM's are only to be used for communication within your tribe. All out-of-tribe contact is to be confined to challenge threads/other public threads.

Immunity Challenges:

{02} Every round will possess an Immunity Challenge. Winners of the Immunity Challenge will be safe from elimination that round and cannot be voted out at the Tribal Council.

{03} The outcomes of all Challenges are final. That said, however, be sure to keep Rule 03 of General Rules in mind.

{04} We appreciate the fact that prospective contestants will enter this game with a range of skills. With this in mind, understand that we as mods can't cater to all players' needs and time constraints in challenges.

Tribal Council:

{05} Tribal Council is where players are eliminated. Before the merge, only the losing tribe or tribes will visit TC, and will vote one player off. After the merge, all remaining players will go to TC, including immunity challenge winners.

{06} Tribal Councils will last 24 hours from the end of the challenge. If a player fails to submit a vote within the given time frame, they will receive a selfvote. In the event that a player knows he or she will be unable to vote by deadline, that player may notify the moderators and cast a conditional vote to avoid penalization.

{07} The results of Tribal Councils may be posted before deadline if and only if all persons involved have submitted a vote.

{08} The modification of votes after they have been submitted is allowed. Players are able to change their votes as many times as they want until the Tribal Council is posted. However, keep in mind that the Tribal Council may be posted early if all players have voted.

{09} If a player has failed to vote three times, the mods may choose to eliminate him or her at their discretion.

{10} The outcomes of Tribal Councils are final.

{11} Questions concerning ties in the Tribal Council may be found below:

Breaking Ties:

I. In the event of an initial tie, a revote shall take place. Contestants may only vote for one of the tied players, and all tied individuals may not vote. Reward items may not be used in this revote, but any reward items that have already been played will remain in play.

II. If a majority is not met in the revote, all tied players and immune players become instantly immune and the remaining players will draw rocks for elimination. In a Final 4 TC, rocks will not be drawn, and the tied players will participate in a tiebreaker challenge.

III. During a revote PMs will be disabled for that tribe.

Twists:

{12} Twists will be implemented without warning or provocation throughout the game. The time and setting of each twist has already been determined, so as to neither give an unfair advantage or disadvantage to a player or group of players. Information in the game may take precedence over these rules if needed.

{13} Players who are on the initial 'newbie tribe' will all be matched with a 'Trainer'. This player may not contact anyone else playing the game and is there primarily to answer questions and help their newbie navigate the game. The trainer is allowed to ask questions and answer them but are prohibited from giving specific, as opposed to general, advice on the player who should be voted off.

This game is rated Vanilla which means it has 5 or less points on the rating system and it's relatively simple :)

I edited rule 5 to make clear that Coach's IDs are revealed in their new player's confessionals at the start of the game. I also removed some typos from errant copying and pasting (related to a previous game's idol hunt)

Update to newbie/experienced eligibility. We initially only included Survivor games as "experience" because we wanted to exclude non-standard LSGs like the Genius, the Challenge etc. However one game is similar enough to survivor that we are comfortable counting it as experience. Therefore we will now count big brother as well as survivor in evaluating experience. If you're not sure whether you're new or experienced or have any other questions, PM one of us.

We have an amazing number of applications right now, especially a great number of new players and people willing to coach. We still want your applications in all three areas though obviously so sign up yo.

Does that mean Regirock, Regice, and Registeel all win too since you need them to make Regigigas?

Guys it was quite the adventure, the ups the downs the crying the laughing. I wanna thank my fellow mods Vijarada and CuddlyCaucasian for running this with me. This game was a baby that came from Super Smash Bros survivor in order to see what would happen if we put a bunch of newbies with a bunch of vets.

I hope everyone enjoyed the game, sorry for the hiccups but those are to be expected.

Congrats on our finalists but most importantly congrats to The Worst!

Thank you Trainers for helping us out as well

Does that mean my Luigi self was responsible for this game's existence? :o

Thanks again for running the game, and massive congrats to the worst! I had a blast while I was doing good IRL, and it pains me to say that I probably won't play again in a LSG until I'm in a more stable position IRL since I don't want to hinder any other game by dropping out. I'll still try my best to spec as many as I can so my comeback can be as great as possible.
