"That's fair, though my point kinda stands." Prism concedes, gesturing with her hand. The corner of her mouth creeps up at Jocelyn's posh accent, her back going straight and mouth pinching as she puts on a similar haughty tone. ""Of course, Ms. Antiqua! Later this afternoon, we're meeting with a Mr. Cream and Ms. Petrichor for croquet, then I believe... pfft - Okay, no, no, I can't d-do it! Pffeehehehe..."

Prism's valiant try towards playing along is thwarted by a gigglefit, needing to cover her mouth to try to prevent the belly laugh from escaping.

Because It came up a couple of times last time I'll ask publicly. Can we get a ruling on cheesing the de-activation of aura to be hit while not losing points in the tourney. E.G. Gray's semblance.

It's been deemed to have enough interest so we're going through with this again. There's gonna be some changes though and they'll be listed below. If you think a rule is dumb, feel free to talk about it in the comments.

First of all, last time if a single team signed up for something then we had an NPC or NPC team fight them. Not this time, it just didn't work great last time and it takes a lot of time to create the NPCs necessary. So what happens if you're the only one who signs up for 4th year 4v4? Well, nothing. You won't fight but you also don't win the bracket by default as that would encourage people to sign up for fight they think or know won't be populated and then not be likely to participate if someone else does sign up.

Speaking of 4v4, we're only doing 1v1s by default this time. If you really, really want to do 2v2 or 4v4 and there's at least two teams then sure we'll put something up but just so you know, 2v2 is a mess and 4v4 is a cluster fuck.

Most important rule: You may have the same character in each of the bracket types but you cannot have more than one character in the same bracket and year. That is, I could not have two first years in the first year 1v1 but I could have a first year in the first year 1v1 and a third year in the third year 1v1.

4v4: Matches are estimated to have a very low turn out. Only OFFICIAL TEAMS may participate in this bracket type. This means the team you were assigned to by Atlas/Beacon/Haven/Shade and you MUST have all four members agree to participate in the round.

2v2: This is expected to have a low turn out. If you have two characters on a team they only one can be in this round.

1v1: This is going to be busy.

Hunter's Bracket: A 1v1 bracket for anyone with an official hunters license. Test you might against other fighters of the highest caliber.

Staff members will play the parts of referees in this tourney, but only if they do not participated. I know for certain u won't be participating in anything but the hunters bracket and I'm not entirely sure if I will participate in that so I can referee for everything but that. We are there to both make sure matches run smoothly as well as to work as a check, if someone decides to challenge a post.

The matches themselves will run off a similar system to that of the past tourney, you both start off with 100% aura, attacks must be given a % damage value, it is up to the other person to decide whether or not they would hit and are responsible for taking the damage (unless an autohit penalty is required.). If you feel that your opponent has made an unfair attack value or dodged unfairly, you may contact a referee and we will determine whether or not it was unfair. If it was, the post must be edited to what we deem to be fair. That said, even if no one contacts us, we'll still be checking in on threads every now and again.

Semblances will work on a stamina system, the more you use them the more worn out you become. It is up to you to play this fairly, if you don't and referee sees you you'll get penalized. Don't fuck it up for everyone else.

In matches, it is required that you post within 3 days, if you don't and do not send a notice to BOTH a referee and your opponent beforehand, you will be given an autohit penalty. That is whatever attack was in someone's post before you didn't post will automatically hit. If there was no attack in the post, one may be edited in as long as a ref okays it. If you do not post in 4 days without notice following the auto hit, your character is disqualified. If you think tou won't be able to post for 7 days at any time during the tourney, do not sign up.

These rules count for everyone, normal members, minions, moderators, and admins. Do not be afraid to talk to one of the staff is anyone is breaking any rules.

"Hey if this is the 41st tournament and the last one was the 40th shouldn't the people in the last one be two years older?" Yes but shut up, time is convoluted in Remnant. We don't force anyone to advance years so it doesn't matter really.

"Touché." Jocelyn concedes, wanting to spread her own wings but having failed to bring her pack with her. "Well, that's your strategy; mine's more 'get out of harm's way' than 'hit and run', but you know that already." Catching onto Prism's humor, she replied "Yes, ma'am. Would you like tea and crumpets for breakfast?" in an overly posh tone, pretending to stand like a waiter with one arm behind her back and holding an imaginary towel draped over the other.

"We're training to become huntresses, something tells me we're the exception. Hell, I fly while a shoot, that's practically my entire combat strategy. Mobility in battle is kinda essential for us." Prism counters, fluffing her wings for emphasis. She relaxes a bit at Jocelyn's comment about her leadership however, letting a small smile creep onto her face in turn. "That's good to know, actually. If I'm in charge of you guys for the next four years, the last thing I want is for anybody to resent my leadership."

She pauses, before tilting her head, her tone humorous. "Though I won't lie, it's pretty cool being referred to as ma'am."

'Scandalous, Prism. How would my reputation recover knowing how deep worship of Venus went, being such a devoted worshiper myself it could only be all the way.' Calen responded in mock outrage once again needing to use his semblance to strike the target. 'Catherine Laurent, a grace that seemed almost supernatural and a laugh which could charm the dead from their cold embrace. Of course it was her brother I was more interested in but it turned out he was already married.' Calen explain shrugging slightly. 'You don't have to worry about your own reputation however Prism. Keep your carnal secrets, there are more interesting facets' Calen finished chuckling slightly both in regards to his own exaggerated pomp and Smokey's bravado.

'If the size of the gun decided fights then the world wouldn't need us, the 290 series Paladin's carry larger guns than we can heft, even someone with your.... low center of gravity. I would advise focusing on the things that make us different from the souless hunks of metal our northern neighbours deploy as a milita.' Calen responded coyly to Smokey's insistence. Although Calen did have a genuine dislike for over-reliance on technology including dust or guns a distinct part was agitating the other first year.

Taking a seat back by the launcher Calen spent a few moments thinking of an appropriate question before settling on his choice. 'What achievement are you most proud of?' Calen asked activated the firing mechanism and leaning back against the wall.

"Mmm." Jocelyn hummed noncommittally while reloading her rifle, her eyebrows slightly raised as the wind kept whipping her hair across her face. "Snipers aren't supposed to fire while running, but I suppose it can't hurt to practice." Hearing Prism comment on her own leadership turned her around with a small grin on her face. "If there's ever any complaints you won't hear them from me. Before Beacon my mother was very strict with her training schedule so obeying orders is basically second instinct to me." She gave Prism a light pat on the back. "You're doing great."

'It's a pleasure to meet you Solar. My name is Saffron.' Saffron responded warmly, glad that the other faunus accepting her hand and followed the huntress in training closer to the center of the stage. Saffron wasn't quite able to keep in her laughter at Solar's dancing, although there was no malice it was still impolite and the Atlas student tried to right herself before it got too obnoxious. 'I suppose that is one way to tear up the dance floor Solar, but Vacuo huh hope you aren't Vale too cold.... Well I suppose desert nights are also cold but you get the idea, I have the opposite problem Vale is far warmer than Atlas.' Saffron continued slightly teasing then almost immediately falling over her own words.

'So have you been at the concert long? There are definitely some things you should check out before they wrap up, it's crazy how many different acts they have. Nothing like what we have back at home, organised and formal.... which aren't bad things of course but sometimes it's nice to see a change.' Saffron asked tapping away at a rather bulky device wrapped around her left wrist.
