Psykit's 2v2v2v2 Battle Royale!
This has now been completed and we raised £835.69 (nice) for Special Effect! Thank you to everyone that was involved. The VOD of the event is here!
This year for Gameblast 23 we're putting on a charity Dungeons and Dragons teams battle royale!
If you're not familiar with Gameblast, this is the yearly weekend where we put our best fundraising hats on to raise money for the utterly fantastic Special Effect
Starting at 3pm UTC on Sunday 26th February, teams of two will battle it out for the top prize of a £30 voucher to spend in their favourite online store.
Team creation rules
Two Level 9 characters
Point buy/standard array
Published Wizards of the Coast 5th edition content only (eg. if it's in Explorer's Guide to Wildemount you're ok, if it's in Taldorei Reborn only, you're not)
The optional rules in Tasha's are allowed
Multiclassing is allowed
Minmaxing is ENCOURAGED
Teams will have their starting equipment, 1000GP, plus the choice of three uncommon and one rare magic item to share between them.
Should you wish to sell your starting equipment for the cost as listed in the Players Handbook to add to your funds you can do.
If you're doing anything finicky, please run it by me first so I can okay it.
A small description of what your characters look like would be fantastic.
Character sheets, Character and Team names, small descriptions of your characters, and any workings out you think would help clarify things need to be with Clare by 15th February
The game will take place on a floating island in a pocket dimension. For the purposes of the battle the magic surrounding the competition regards all characters as native to that pocket dimension while present there (looking at you, banishment, for that particular rule). It is also well lit, although there are some places for you to hide behind.
Over time, the play area will crumble away. You will have the opportunity to react to this, it isn't instant.
There are lair actions, and the potential for other items to be added to play by your benevolent audience.
We will be using Roll20 for all rolls for maximum visibility. Once your character sheets are with me I shall transfer them into Roll20 for easy rolls.
Multiclassing is allowed.
Planning your next move while other people are taking their turns is also highly encouraged.
All battles will be streamed live over on my twitch channel, where supply drops might be used as an incentive to get fans to donate! You will not be required to be on camera as we will use a discord overlay.
All characters will be checked over by me, your humble Dungeon Master, and any decisions will be final.
The game will start at 3pm UTC on Sunday 26th February. If there are enough teams that show interest, we may end up running some heats to establish the final four teams in play. I will provide all players with schedules when I have a better idea of this.
The winning team will share a £30 voucher to the online store of their choice!
If you are interested in submitting a team for the competition, please either drop me a DM on Discord or complete the form below.
