    The BitF Trail Discussion Thread: Where those who aren't playing discuss the event

    This year after April Fools Day, we (the mods) were a bit upset that we couldn't have a great prank ready for the boards. We were still getting used to the new boards and all that so we were limited in what we could do. While discussing April Fools Day, I jokingly suggested we do an event based on the Oregon Trail. Tigerman loved the idea, and a few months later here we are.

    So, exactly what is this? The BitF Trail is a game that will be spanning a whole week (tentatively August 8th to August 15th, though maybe earlier if we're ready). Its loosely based on the Oregon Trail video game. We will have four teams trying to survive the horribly deadly Oregon Territory (or some Nintendo-themed varient similar to it ) in order to make it to a new life! The winning team will recieve something (though I can't say for sure exactly what just yet, I'm working on what that could be), though the bragging rights that you survived the BitF Trail should hopefully be a fun little prize in itself. As you trek perilously across the unexplored frontier, you will come face to face with quite a few obstacles. You and your team will need to keep your wits about you and make intelligent decisions to survive. What happens in one event might effect later events, and no two groups will have the exact same result in responding to one event. We'll have 4 teams, each with a captain and co-captain (the captains will be chosen by our mods, and the captains will choose their co-captain) who need to listen to their people and make a decision that best fits their interest. Everyone has a part to play and their own role in the group. Who will make it to the promised land first? Which group will have the most survivors? Only you can find this out.

    So, without further adieu (we'll have better plot exposition given out when we start the game!), who here is interested? Sign ups will end in a week, so you had better sign up quickly!

    Oh man sexual

    Also better than the havoc which came about on April Fools itself. *cheeky blush*

    Like how you managed to change the theme for this specific section.

    Re: The BitF Trail: A Week Long Adventure! SIGN UPS

    I am going to post in here saying that the Theme you see here on this board is still not completely done. As MK4E said, she is working on a banner specifically for this place. There are also some fixes for Firefox users, and maybe other browers, that need to be done. (See flashing links in Firefox) I need jryanm's help with a fix for that. The Colors for backdrop will be changing, the pinkish/orange/whatever second tone of grey. Probably moving to a gray there. When you leave this board, your previous theme will be used. This theme here was specifically made for this event. Based on colors of Oregon State Flag.

    Is the unravelling of the game visible for all or do you have to sign up to see it? I seems nice to read, but I cannot join.

    Sounds interesting, perhaps I'll join once more is revealed(i.e., I'm indecisive on joining).
    My art thread should be up and running. Be sure to stop by and comment.
    I like animals, but especially cats.  I should probably change my sig, though.  Eh, I'll do it later.

    I shall join, hearty adventurers.

    Although I think I need to research Oregon Trail a bit beforehand.



    Tim, no!

    EDIT: Turns out that's the modern version.

    I only just now realised that.

    Go me!

    Sure Vill, it'll be public, everyone gets to see what goes on and we'll have an art thread too

    Well, each day we'll have a series of events that teams work to choose a fitting response to. For example, on one day there could be an outbreak of Dysentary. Let's say two people were infected. Should you leave them behind to try and avoid more people catching it? Should you keep them with you and try to cure them? Once a decision has been reached, we (the mods) use an RNG to figure out the result. There will be several events a day, and the rest of the time we encourage teams to roleplay a bit and have some fun with the goings on. If you put more effort into the game and have a bit of fun with it, you might be more likely to get a positive outcome. It's a competition between the four groups in the end, whichever team has the most survivors by the end of the last day will win the game.

    And yes Auraknight, the theme will be public eventually

    This is a pretty epic idea, count me in!
    I remember my friends constantly playing Oregon Trail all the time. I never got to play it much, but it was fun the times I could.
