Here's the DT. Here we go.

First off, now's a good time to discuss with other players things like battle strategies, what your first move will be, and things like that. You can individually PM everyone with an idea, or you can post here. Posting here might be the better solution, so that players on the opposite team will know how to lay things out and discuss how their team will react. This is a story, so it's more about writing than seeing who can beat the other guy.

Second, even I'm going to grow bored if we don't slip in a little drama. You can't switch sides, but you could, say, agree to help the other team for a part of someone's winnings. Stuff like that, that isn't entirely fighting and tactics, could add some depth to the story.

Third, which team will win? If we decide now then we can work on developing a really cool plot, like the losing team could secretly cheat, or something could happen that caused the fences surrounding the area to go into lockdown... Yeah, things could get really interesting.


Keep in contact, everyone. The only SB I've ever really finished, we ended up with over ten pages in the Discussion Thread alone. Communication is key, when you could be thinking of one thing and someone else could think of something entirely different for the same situation. That could get messy.

Unless others notice the DT and vote, the Cobras just might.

Cobras! Because I'm egotistic and want my team to win. Haha, just kidding. But that also means that the Hawks could potentially plan some nice sabotage.

No, cabins haven't been assigned, until now, that is. There aren't really main ones, since each cabin holds the same number of people. Ten to a cabin, five rooms in a cabin, two to a room. The rooms have the same gender, but the actual cabins have mixed boys and girls. It's because you're assigned your cabin based on your abilities, not on age or gender or anything. So I put the Stealth people by trees or open areas, Strategy people by the headquarters so they can strategize, Combat between the shooting range and training... There's a map on the front page, I'll include one here.

Okay, there are two slots still up, and since we've started the odds of someone taking them just decreased 92.4%. Anyone want a second character?

Nick101 just joined...And I vote the Hawks to win, because I too am an egoist. Actually, it doesn't matter that much to me.

Texanwriter, what exactly does surveillance do? I would change to combatant but I wanted to know what surveillance was first. Also, could Alex take the Hawks for midnight training? Krystal (you) said that the Nerf war started the next day. Midnight is approximately the next day isn't it?
I follow four rules when writing
1. Don't think. Just write.
2.Never take the pencil from the page when writing
3.Don't erase. Even if what you wrote didn't make sense
4.No need for grammar,punctuation, or spelling when writing

And when your done writing you stop and break all the rules

Um. Let me think. It sounded cool when I thought it up... Oh, and thanks for joining!

Stealth is sneak-attack specializing, more like spies than soldiers, being mostly for offense. Combat is both offense and defense. So that would make surveillance defense, watching for the enemy, maybe kidnapping? I'm not sure, really.

And yes on the training. That would be grand.

Not necessarily. You could do it tonight. It would actually make more sense tonight, because now all the newcomers know what exactly they have to do here.
