Hello, everyone, and welcome to your new island! My name is Tom Nook and I’m the founder and president of Nook Inc. Yes, yes! Today is the first day of signups for your new life on this pristine, lovely island, so congratulations!

This game will see 21 amazing residents come live, play, and compete for the title of Sole Survivor. In order to make it to the end you’re going to have to outwit, outplay, and outlast the others. I know that sounds intense, but we think you’ll have fun doing it. After all, it’s impossible to not have fun when you’re on such a nice tropical island like this one!

Application Deadline: January 3, 2024
Projected Game Start: January 10, 2024
Projected End Date: Early March, date TBD


TO SIGN UP OR TO SPECTATE, PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM!

{ 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. We also expect you to respect all other players. If this rule or any MS rule is violated and brought to our attention or the Listmod's attention, we may be forced to take further action.

{05} Survivor: Animal Crossing 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.

{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 respect mentioned above. If intentional cheating occurs, you will be punished accordingly.

{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. Quoting is allowed in Private Messages, as is pretending to quote. You may paraphrase, and you may quote very short snippets, like you might in a real conversation.

Don't show other players screenshots or quotes of anything in your confessional, any challenge scores, or any game information they do not already have access to, which includes items.

{10} This forum software allows group PMs to be created. You are free to use those; go hog wild.

{11} 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.

{12} If you have any issues that cannot be resolved by the game mods, or if the game mods are breaking rules, please report that to Nintendo Switch aka xofelf.

{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.

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. After the merge, giving away the Immunity Necklace is allowed, but only for the first 12 hours of a Tribal Council, and once passed it cannot be passed again. If the necklace is passed, an additional 24 hours will be added to the clock.

{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.

{05} Unless otherwise stated, you may NOT use outside resources for any challenge.

{06} Unless otherwise stated, you may not discuss Individual Immunity challenges with any player until the challenge is over. You may or may not be allowed to discuss Tribal Challenges with your tribe. For more information, see the specific thread for the Tribal Challenge.

{07} If you're submitting an update, please include the whole submission; we will count that post as if it's the only post being made for that submission. If you're missing information previously provided we will assume that this is intentional.

Tribal Council:


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

{09} Tribal Councils will last approximately 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 they will be unable to vote by deadline, that player may notify the moderators and cast a conditional vote to avoid penalization.

{10} The results of Tribal Councils will not be posted before the deadline.

{11} 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. To do so, make a
new
post in your voting thread so the moderators notice it. Do not edit your previous vote. Once deadline has been reached, no new votes will count regardless of if the mods are on time or late to post TC results.

{12} If a player has failed to vote three times, the mods may choose to eliminate them at their discretion.

{13} The outcomes of Tribal Councils are final.

{14} 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. Unplayed reward items may not be played 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. It will not be a fun tiebreaker challenge.

III. In the unlikely event that all players are ineligible to receive votes, we will end the TC with nobody going home. All items used will be exhausted and an emergency challenge will be played to determine immunity.

Twists:


{15} 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.

{16} Mods will not answer hypothetical questions about items that are not in your possession with the exception of clarifying questions about tools that have not been claimed.

{17} There will be two ways to obtain reward items. The first will be the immunity idols hidden in the password-protected forum. The second will be the Golden Tools. Information about the Golden Tools can be found in their specific thread.

{18} [REDACTED UNTIL LATER]

Once again,
Application Deadline: January 3, 2024

While this game is classified as advanced, it's sort of right on the border between Standard and Advanced. This game doesn't specifically cater to new players, but I also don't think any new players who play this as their first game will run into any issues.

Velma (and all other animals in New Horizons) have arrived in pocket camp as of today.

Although it'll potentially take me a few days to actually unlock them if somebody for whatever reason would like updated tribal council pictures from throughout merge, but I'm other otherwise celebrating the fact it can be done, rerack.
