Check out the reboot here! This topic will not be updated.
Welcome to the 6th Annual Hunger Games! In this topic each person must control a tribute in the hunger games. All posters control the same tribute, whereas I control the game makers and all that happens in the games. For example, at the start of the game, I describe the arena and any nearby loot. You would post what action to take (grab loot, run, fight, etc). Then I would describe the outcome, and the new situation/continuation of present situation.
You must read all of this! Some rules will make more sense if you have read the books/watched the movies.
Beginning of games:
The first person to post chooses the name, gender and district of the tribute to be played in the next game. After that, I will post a description of the character. The description contains the characters strengths and weaknesses, it will also say the general info (name, gender, etc). Now, the next person to post will choose what training to do in the pregame. That person must choose 3 training sessions to take. These three will be the public ones, which you do with all the other tributes. Those training sessions may improve your current skills, or they may teach you new ones. The same training can be done for two of the sessions or all of them if you wish to highly improve some skills. After that, I will post. In that post I describe all the skills you learned or improved. Now it is time for the private training session, to show off to the game makers. The next person to post decides what skills the character will show the game makers. I will then post and describe how it went, and what score you were given. I also describe what effects this score will have in the games. Finally, I will post. That post will contain the description of the visible arena, and the nearby loot. Then you are free to post! The games have begun!
During the games:
At the end of most of my posts, I will show two different lists, condition and inventory. I will show the condition list whenever a condition changes. The condition list contains the status of the character. If the character is hungry it will say different things depending on the level of hunger (Peckish, Hungry, Starving, etc). The list will also describe the injuries of the character. Be warned, mental state is not shown! The inventory list shows any items/objects the character is carrying. This list will not include the starting clothing, but will include any clothing you find as loot.
Extra Notes: READ ALL!
Most odds are decided by dice, the skills and traits of your character can help these odds, or make them worse. If there are odds of something happening, I will roll, no matter how small the chance.
If you win two games in a row, your character traits start off worse, if you lose two games in a row, they get better.
Every anthem (Unless you miss it) will show a chart of who you know is dead/alive. Whoever you aren't sure on is default alive.
If you do something that is counter-productive like saying to kill yourself, someone else must agree with you in order for me to do the action. Some people don't want the game to end.
You cannot choose the same district or a Career District two games in a row.
There are Quarter Quells! (Every 5 games rather than 25.)
The current game started from the first post on page 27, please read all posts from that post until the current post. There will be much less confusion and explaining if you read those posts. This extra note will update itself each game.

If you are still confused, then read the past games. Maybe your questions will be answered by them. If you really don't want to read past games, then just ask the questions.
The arena is a frozen wasteland with very few trees, but high amounts of shrubs, plants and undergrowth. The cornucopia is full of it's usual things, nearby there is a spear on the ground, and a small sack. You can take the spear, take the backpack, or run. Or you can do something crazy.
Run towards the sack until it's close enough to pick it up with the spear as a hobosack. Then run away.
On the way to the sack you are intercepted by a girl from district 2, being a Career, she is highly equipped. She pins you to the ground, this will require quick thinking to escape. Your spear is still in your hands, but it won't be for long.
Vomit into her eyes to distract and blind her! Then choke her to death and use her body as a shield! I have some really weird thoughts on how to do this. Don't I?
Yes you do. Yes you do.
From overstuffing yourself with food at the Capital, you manage to vomit. She jumps away in panic and is blinded for a short amount of time. From pure luck you manage to strangle her, but you don't have enough time to kill her. It's run for the sack, run away or death.
FORGET THE SACK! YOU HAVE A SPEAR! CHASE HER AND STAB HER! Actually... That would be suicidal. Run for the sack then go. They should be intimidated by your spear. Do you still have the spear or did she steal it? I think she might have dropped it if you vomited into her eyes. Anyway... Get the sack and go!
