2024 Iris Boarding School Complex Sensha-Do Convention (OOC)

Postby The Selkie » Sun May 19, 2024 3:11 pm

You are cordially invited

to the

2024 IRIS BOARDING SCHOOL COMPLEX SENSHA-DO CONVENTION

A Festival dedicated to the various forms of Tankery, Panzerfahren or however you wish to call the sport, which involves driving tanks and gunnery and the history behind these massive, fascinating vehicles and the community that spawned with the sport.
Aside from a Big International Match, there will be a tank biathlon competition and a tank petting zoo, where you can meet the crews and listen to the stories and histories of the tanks and, in some cases, even go for a spin!
The hosts themselves also put up quite a show and quite the festival around the convention, with the competition for the 2024 Iris Cup, a Marcach Trophy, being fought for, as well as stalls and inns opening their doors to curious visitors.
Food and drink will be there aplenty.

We look forward to meeting you!





Hello and welcome to the 2024 Iris Tank Fest!
My, my, has it been... actually, there was none in 2023, so... it's about time we did a new one! And the hiatus has been used to think up a new format for the entire thing, a Big International Team Deathmatch and the festival at large.
So, how will this one go...
...we'll have two IC-Threads, with this OOC-Thread as the general hub for all OOC-Questions.
    One of these IC-Threads will be the Big International Match. Confined to a field, it'll be two teams dunking it out in a Team Deathmatch of internationally mixed teams – for those of you, who know the anime Girls und Panzer, it'll be much akin to the match in the show or the movies, only that it will not only be different schools, but also from different nations. While we will play a lot by the rule of cool, we will not suspend all disbelief. I will also, upon the deadline (2nd of June, 2024, 12:00 a.m. CEST), close applications for the International Match and assign tanks to the two teams by coin toss. While the control of the individual tank is left to the player, who applied them, it is your decision of whether or not you follow your team leader's direction or not. If you don't plan to post on the Match-IC, or don't think, that you can make the time to do so, then do not bother applying for the match.
    The other IC-Thread is the Festival, where the usual merriment goes down.
    While applying to the match makes applying to the festival mandatory, the same is not true in reverse.
I'd like to note, that this is my first time hosting a 'war' RP, by the widest stretch of the imagination, so expect a... unusual ride. ; )

And the Match-IC and the Festival-IC are up!

So... let's come to the meat of the entire thing:

[u]OOC-Section[/u]
RP-Sample:
Have you read and understood the rules?
Notes:


    1. No Godmodding, Meta-Gaming or similar stuff. No exceptions.
      1.1. If you believe, that such an instance is occurring, please bring it to attention on this OOC in a calm manner.
      1.2. ALL NPCs are controlled by me, mostly due to cultural particularities. No exceptions.
      1.3. For convinience, I will play all characters from my nations from this account. For all needing a list and proof...
    2. I am the OP, my word is law. I reserve the right to add to this list of rules or to amend rules if and when I deem it necessary.
    3. IC on the IC-threads, OOC on the OOC-thread. The OOC-thread is there to be used.
    4. Permitted Characters:
      4.1. Generally, students and people, who are interested in the sport or in the festival. Sportspeople, technical staff, but also tourists. No high government or military officials.
      4.2. Keep in mind, that your characters are under the right and law of the Free Lands. That includes a total ban on all firearms in private hands (and your people will be there as private persons, end of discussion). If I catch anyone posting anything about his characters having firearms in any form, he or she will be mauled to death by rabid Tines. And no, there will be no escape. No exceptions.
      4.3. The tanks are a different story, but more on them in block 5.
      4.4. Appearance of your characters, a.k.a. Valid Passport Photo. Please choose pictures, that are SFW and where your character is easily identifiable. Anime-Pictures are allowed, but are under the same restrictions. You can also write a description of him or her. And it does not have to be a passport photo. Please use a maximum size of 550 by 550 pixels or hotlink and please do not spoiler.
      4.5. Non-Humans: Non-Human Humanoids are permitted, the rest is not. Shipgirls are permitted, Magic of the Strike Witches Variety is permitted, the rest will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
      4.6. You have to provide an RP-sample (a link to a RP you participated in, from the account you are applying with, showing how you interact with other players, not a post written on the fly) and answer the question “Have you read and understood the rules?” with "Wiggle that Leopard's rear spoiler!" No exceptions.
      4.7. No characters or teams from Girls und Panzer. In general, original characters - you can use the pictures of whoever you like (God knows, I do), but the characters themselves need to be original. No exceptions.
    5. Teams:
      5.1. Generally, a team is an organized group of practicioners of Sensha-Do.
      5.2. You may partake in the Tank Biathlon and in the Big International Match with one tank per team. The theme for either is, generally speaking, the 1960s and 1970s. In other words, if your tanks were in service during that time frame, they are fine. If they were in service before that time, I am going to decide on a case by case basis. If they were in service after, then they are out.
      5.3. The Festival, and especially the Tank Petting Zoo, are open to any and every vehicle of the MT and PT variety. If you wish to ignore that rule, give me a VERY good reason and talk to me about this beforehand. No exceptions.
      5.4. Despite being a sports RP, we will do this in a different way then the nice ladies and gentlemen over at NSSports, namely like this:
        The Tank Biathlon will be done by me: I will roll a RNG between 1 and 99. The higher the number, the closer to the top. In case two people draw the same number, I am going to toss a coin. Winner takes a bonus point (and thus, most likely, the win). I know, that this is far less sophisticated then over on NSSport, but I feel, that this is a good compromise.
        The Big International Match will be a 'classical' War RP with very, very limited things for people to throw in. It is a team Death Match. First team to be completely wiped out looses. We will play a bit with the rule of cool, but your vehicles will not be invincible. Remember, we're here to have fun, not to discuss the merits of water boilers versus water cookers in tanks (and yes, this example is absurd and that is on purpose).
        As for vehicles, as long as it fits into the time frame, is a military vehicle and armed, it goes. I would like to ask you to avoid open-topped vehicles, but that is not mandatory.
        You will also not have air or drone support or off-map artillery. If you wish to bring along a vehicle to listen in on the enemy radio, be aware, that both teams know exactly what vehicles you have along for the ride. Jammers are NOT permitted (it messes with the drones and cameras set up for broadcasting).
        The map is, essentially, Malinovka from World of Tanks. One Team will start in the village in the North East, the other will start in the assembly of houses in the south. Your people will not have to worry about property damage, the houses are props.
        Both competitions have a maximum amount of one tank per team! If you wish to have more, give me a VERY good reason beforehand.
        A word in regards to the App. A link to a factbook or an article on GE&T or Wikipedia, or a Wikia/Fandom is fine. You can also write down a statblock and a few sentences. Please be reasonable and, that might be the most important part, transportable by train. If you wish to post an image alongside, please hotlink. If your vehicle is modified from the (described) factory standard, please note so in the app as well.
      5.5. One team, one app. No exceptions.
      5.6. This sport is co-ed, but if you want to make an all-girls or an all-boys team, feel free to do so.
      5.7. Also, your teams do not have to be entirely High Schoolers. They will also not be active members of the military (cadet school students excluded).
      5.8. You might have noticed, that I permitted Strike Witches Witches in Rule 4.5.. This permission also extends to the Big International Match and the Tank Biathlon. Please do keep the descriptions of the underwear of the young lady in question to a minimum and be reasonable: Yes, she might have a shield, that can block Neuroi Lazors, but she is not invincible.
    6. No murders. Violence only if all involved agree to it.
      6.1. Security. Will be provided by the Free Lands, if needed by rabid Tine. If you feel the need for your character to have a bodyguard or someone of that kind, no, they won't. No exceptions.
    7. No military actions, declarations of war or similar stuff. No exceptions.
    8. Try to avoid oneliners. I know, that it can't be avoided sometimes, but please put a bit of effort into this RP.
    9. If you have questions for me or other players, ask. That's what this OOC is for!
    10. The IC will start on the 3rd of June. At that point, all of your characters, tanks and so, and so on will already be at the Iris Boarding School Complex and set up for the convention. We don't need to go through the entire rounds of arrival in the Free Lands and transporting everything to Fortham and so on and so on.

"Aqueel, I hope you realize taking a Monday off to go to some random school's tank show is a really dumb idea."
"Then why are you coming?"
"Because I'm bored enough to. Why else? Personally, I thought you were happy enough having a hunting buddy, but if you insist on travel..."
"Now wouldn't that be a good idea..."
"You can't be serious."

"Don't be fooled by my brother's cool looks. It's just a messed-up camera, makes him look purple. When you get to know him, you'll find out he's a real loser."

Cherissime amis! Welcome to Ezhara — perhaps you might call it the land of prodigy, where the youth, fated to take upon the mantle of our legacy, are taught to love their passion, their childhood incroyable, destined to resonate forever within their hearts to create that brighter future, whether resurrecting from the bygone ashes of a past, or maintaining their gold ascendant.

Gladly accepted, welcome aboard!
Considering, that the Leopards I mean are these kitties, I wouldn't call it vulgar. Only a weird thing to do. ; )

Hey selks, had a few questions I wanted to ask.

First, my initial idea was porting over Amelie. I dont think I would be able to field a full team, but is there any potential to form temporary and or multinational teams? I figured it might be an interesting way to ‘trial’ sensha do.

Second, you mentioned no higher up types, but what might be the thoughts on a vendor of sorts, perhaps a supporter of the whole event?

In any case, looks great as always.

Thank you for the compliment.
Temporary teams are absolutely fine - multinational ones only if you coordinate with the player/s you want to form a multinational team with. Considering you mentioned Amelie, I must say, that I'd not be opposed to lend you a few people from the SDF-Army Academy and a tank for her to have some fun with, maybe a couple of friends of hers.

As for vendors, that would be possible. After all, I have a company present offering rides in amphibious vehicles and one of the Sio-I in the Tank Petting Zoo is generating power for field kitchens, so a vendor is fine under one condition: They have to belong to a Sensha-Do Team or at least look the part.
Sponsors, well... Mangaire and Gabha are main sponsors, sure, but I could very well imagine other sponsors, and their representatives, as well. It depends on what you have in mind.

There would be no issue. Though, while the match area has a few ponds, summoning her rigging and showing what "All-Big Gun Battleship" means and how it relates to tanks is... not fair.

Hey Selks, is it possible to adjust the team's roster based on the makeup of the international team they're a part of? Having a difficult time deciding whether to field light or medium tanks with each team sent to the field.

Like the idea of a multinational team, might be the case if I invite Liegalla into this as an option.

So, I have another question... Considering the obvious rule regarding no weapons. I've currently put that she may be carrying illegal objects with her, AKA: Weapons, problem is that considering the grey area of an shipgirl, how do I get around. Should I say that she doesn't carry anything illegal so long as she doesn't materialize an 18 inch triple turret?

With an end to the War on the horizon, Amadeus is making what he reasonably believes to be what remains of his time in The Free Lands count. And naturally, Gerald would be expecting Amy somewhere in the crowd.

Please note, that some of the Marcach, who Amadeus met on Droichid Island are also present here. Pina, for instance.
As for Gerald and Amy, she will be there.

Yes. Names suffice, unless you want to be more specific or use them in other contexts along the Festival (for example, look at the gear of the other teams).
