I wanted to thank Wesley for flying all the way from Arizona to host his Pensacola Cheesgrinder-Rpg Survival Tournament, and Tanner (our Pensacola Roleplayers Association member) for helping to host our VIP Wesley L. while he was here! Tanner was really instrumental in the success of our tournament, and making Wesley feel welcome! Thanks Tanner! THANK YOU to Bobe's Hobby House and Pensacon for hosting this incredible tournament!
I wanted to thank all the gamers who watched or participated in our awesome tournament! We had people come from as far away as Fairhope and Mobile! What was even cooler was every participant came to play for between 1-3 hours, but everyone stayed for an additional 3-6 hours, because they were having such a blast! Every gamer except one (they had to leave) re-entered the tournament after their first character died! They HAD to play again, because it was SO FUN! Sometimes gamers had to wait an hour to re-enter, but they didn't mind at all waiting.
The contest winners had to complete the most encounters overall, or the most encounters based on the characters alignment i.e.; the most rooms lawful aligned, evil aligned, or good aligned.
NOTE: Winner's were based on the encounters completed with only ONE of their characters. If you re-entered a tournament with another character, then the rooms/encounters completed started over with your new character.
L. Montgomery won First Place with an impressive completed 7 encounters (re-entered tournament once)
O. Montgomery won second place with 6 encounters (re-entered tournament twice)
Monkplayer won third place with 5 encounters (re-entered once).
If you can think it up, then we probably battled it, or tried to solve the riddle. From epic level trolls, to invisible Jungle Book characters, Wizard of Oz characters, Allips, BALOR, Burning Skeletons riding burning dogs, ""Snow White" Rakshasa" (we thought) & 7 adamantine golem Dwarfs (another riddle), etc. It was AWESOME!
Remember this was an intro-tournament for Pensacon, so be sure to check it out in February 2016! It will run for 48 hours straight, but will be concluding by adding the top six finalists for the arena player-verses-player fight to determine the final winner on Sunday afternoon.
