Deathball volume

Post  Defiant_We_Stand on Thu Jun 26, 2008 1:34 am

Ok I'm going to start a discussion on one of our official volumes. The Sport Story.

Dr. and his team are going to join a sports tournament in hopes to win the Grand Prize: A Planetary Death Laser...Not sure why that's a grand prize for anything but Dr just got lucky I guess. We're going to invent the sport here. For lack of better name it will be called Deathball. The basic inspiration is dodgeball and that's about as far as I've gotten (something we all can pitch in on). There will be training montages, playing montages, maybe a napping montage. Other cliches will include the "One incredible player that repeatedly saves the teams ass" the 'reocurring referee (Homeless Phil)' the 'rival team that starts off incredibly better that the protagonists' and the 'over-the-top announcers'. So far I have it ending with Dr. actually winning the tourney. The problem, however, is that the laser points straight up, so in order to use it, Dr. will have to dun-dun-DUNNNN!!! go into space (leading into the space story).

oh and the teams are mascotted(new word) as 'villains' and 'heroes'. I plan on manufacturing a Dr. Baron von Evilsatan jersey for the AnimeIowa convention.

Deathball Rules (just a suggestion)

Post  kenro on Sun Jul 13, 2008 2:44 pm

Equipment:
the ball is smallish, about 2x-3x the size of a croquet ball, with 12 short narrow spikes, rigid and sharp, but can bounce. An inertial dampening system, bounded by its atomic structure allows this, as well as causing momentum to increase until it contacts something. Actually throwing it activates the system, and impact transfers momentum to the new body and shuts off the system
alt--
the same sized ball is extremely heavy and/or eccentrically formed and off-weighted, as well as made of a super-bounce material , causing it to bounce longer and more irratically


The Play:
Two teams form ranks facing each other in an arena football-sized cubical. One team is chosen to start, one person given the ball. He throws at the competing team with two options--
either throw directly at the team relying on the increasing speed of the ball, with the caveat to the theoretical ease of dodging...
or sacrifice the inertia damp and ricochet it for trickiness.
if you get hit you're ikely dead
alt:
same-sized arena, per standard dodge ball rules
if you get hit you leave the arena

What you think?

Well...we can't have half of the cast offed in one episode. I figured it might be more like dodgeball, but vic also suggested something like Lacross because they give you weapons.

If we add the Lax sticks, we can keep the spiky super-ball. It would have to be smaller, obviously, but the nets cut down on the likelihood of actually being struck by said death-ball, thus dropping the high deathrate of the previous incarnation of Deathball.

Ok this is going to basically be a lacross/dodgeball crossover. We're keeping the small spikey ball. It's set up like lacross with two teams trying to get the ball into the opponents goal. The dodgeball part comes in where they can hurl the ball at an opposing player for points. The points are determined by how far away the...*ahem* 'victim' is. The field/arena is marked off by squares and for each square that is covered by the passage of the ball, a point is added. This would mean that players assaulting the ball carrier will not give up any points if they are hit (at least, if they are in the same square) if a hit is awarded, the ball switches possession. A goal is worth a lot more points now (like 20 or so) so that generally a teams main goal is to score one.

Maybe you could use croquet mallets to hit the ball...?

then it would be nearly impossible to carry the ball or to accurately throw it.
