Well, it's that time of year again, and the team of Edgar_Strife, Sleepy Sushi and I proudly present you the fans, with our official ANIME NORTH COSPLAY CHESS 2012!

We [U]ARE[/U] looking for players folks!

This year will bring about a host of new additions but with the same fun and excitement that has been had all the previous years.

Game - Chaos vs. Order

For those of you new to this concept, the ideas of chaos and order have been remnant throughout history and have always been contested whether the path of either one is just. Characters of Chaos and Order this is your moment. So let's settle it here once and for all on the grandest stage of them all! If your character represents both Chaos and Order then it's up to you to choose which side you wanna fight for.

Nothing builds an atmosphere like music and so for the first time ever, each player will get their very own theme song during introductions. Of course everyone has the freedom to choose their own theme song. The introduction song will play for about 8-10 seconds and then we move on to the next character intro, so forth and so forth. I will personally take the charge of getting these songs for you once you state them.

So, here is what you, the player, needs to do! Please fill this out fully!!

Player Name: (doesn't have to be your real name)
Character: (also put down what series/game/book/etc they are from)
Side: (if you don't know, we'll put you where we think you fit best)
Position: (pawn, king, queen, etc etc)
Theme Song Name:

If you are posting for someone else, just put "Friend" in the Player Name spot.

Simple enough right? :)

If you have any opinions on this, feel free to post.


King - can only move 1 space in any one direction
Queen - can move any number of spaces in any one direction
Rook (the castle) - can move any number of unobstructed spaces in a straight line (up or down, left or right)
Bishop (the hat) - can move any number of unobstructed spaces in a diagonal line
Knight (the horse) - can move 4 spaces in an L shape, if unobstructed, in any one direction
Pawn (little guy in front of the rest) - can move up to 2 spaces on first movement (forward only), and 1 space afterwards. Can only take out another pieces by diagonal death.

Check - the King -must- be moved or another piece must take out the offending piece that has put the King in jeopardy.
Check Mate - the King has no avenue of escape, either by himself, or by another. Game over!

JUST A REMINDER: You will have microphones shoved in your face (nicely), so get ready to speak, and play up the game. Foul language will not be tolerated, so don't have a potty mouth. You may have to stand for extended periods of time. We don't care if you sit down on the board, if your legs get tired (Also, if you have a stand in, you can use them too, just pass it by us first). We will get you to do funny things, such as move like you are in a fight sequence from say...Final Fantasy (where they bob back and forth).

FIGHT SCENES: No contact! We don't want to get in trouble by the Weapons Masters, by AN itself, or anyone who gets injured and blames us. Props are welcomed, just remember, NO CONTACT!

I think Mewtwo had a theme for Pokemon Statitum and Pokemon Puzzle League Roxas. I don't think he had any for DS encounters.

It's the thing I look forward to the most, and to think I almost had to work today. Well I did but when I got there boss says we're closing early (supervisor at an outdoor skating rink). So I come home and see this, I feel good now.

[QUOTE=Maxykun;4293619]I think Mewtwo had a theme for Pokemon Statitum and Pokemon Puzzle League Roxas. I don't think he had any for DS encounters.[/QUOTE]

That seems to be what I'm finding. Anytime he's a "boss" or single battle in a game, he's theme seems to change. I couldn't pick one frpm the one's I found, so I'm leaving it up to our hosts. ^^

Also, I have a question for the hosts as well. I have a Shadow Ball prop that I can use for an attack. It's made of styrofoam, very light-weight and harmless when thrown at someone (got a friend to try it on me). Would I be allowed to throw it when i attack?
