Challenge #27: Swords and Words

Post by Manuel » Fri Jun 03, 2016 3:49 pm

We're just done with a blazing 48-hour challenge with over 180 submissions! Look into the results here. For those of you that need some extra challenge this weekend, here's the next challenge!

The Story
A parchment on the Announcements boards read: "Sticks and Stones may break their bones. Words make sure you'll get away with it." Victor lifted an eyebrow and moustache at reading this weird remark. Apparently chairman Pinkerton had a new idea for which approach works best...


The Rules
- Use only Fighters and Speakers.
- Bring at least one Fighter.
- Bring at least one Speaker.

- Your score is your Renown.
- Play on Adventure Mode.
- Play on any Difficulty.

The Goals
BRONZE: 1500 Renown (1 Medal Points*)
SILVER: 4500 Renown (2 MP*)
GOLD: 7000 Renown (3 MP*)
PLATINUM: 9000 Renown**
We'll keep separate rankings for people playing with and without the More To Explore expansion. We might pose different thresholds in coming challenges.
* Number of medal points awarded when playing on Classic Difficulty. Easy and Normal give less, according to these rules.
** The platinum medal is extraordinary and can only be achieved on Classic or Impossible difficulty. It doesn't increase Medal Points, but we will track how many you have.


STORY MEDAL: Fighters fight, speakers speak, is there a synergy here, or will any combination of the two result in conflicting ethics? Which encounters will be tough to deal with? What characters can overcome this gap, and which will never accept the opposing approach?

We're keeping track of all the medals you gained in the Hall of Fame.

How to participate
You can participate with a highscore, a story or both.

Stories
[*]Write a story. Use the Challenge theme as an inspiration by looking at the constraints. Find other stories in the Fan Story directory or by looking at previous challenges.
[*]Post your story in a new topic in these forums.
[*]Link to it here with a comment.
[*]Include the first paragraph/few lines of your story in the post to show readers what your story is about.

Highscores
[*] Play the game according to the challenge rules.
[*] Post a screenshot of your Win screen (that is the screen right after the win ceremony) in this topic.*
[*] Submit by Wednesday, June 8th, 12:00 noon CEST / 05:00 CT.

Just barely off. :(

I know a lot of points I could've done a better job though, so it's all just incentive to do better next time!

In the results I'm listed under 'Base Game' only section - but I actually do have More to Explore installed. I just didn't go to either of the new areas this run.

Just curious why I was slotted under the Base Game entries....

They were looking for the expansion icon at bottom right corner of screenshot, however this icon was patched in several days after the expansion came out so if you played the game before that patch the icon isn't there. The same thing happened to my entry and I had to correct them as well.
