    The Noble Knights Escort Challenge Empty The Noble Knights Escort Challenge

    Post by DoughGuy Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:36 am

    Thanks to Jansports for the idea!
    This challenge involves escorting an unarmed host through a level, attempting to protect them from an assassin who has hidden themselves within the level. You must use your NK toon for the challenge, as it’s a test of your normal co-oping ability. The challenge may be done multiple times, but further attempts may bring extra challenges with them.

    Rules
    Host
    The host wears the full painting guardian set, representing their anonymity. The build will preferably have low vit, but that is not necessary. The host may not use any weapons, shields or spells, except force (max 21 casts), to defend themselves. You may not barefist attack, BS or unarmed parry. Their only options are to roll and run. The host may use estus of any level, but may only use 10 chugs max. The host may have to follow a set path through the level to prevent certain shortcuts being used.

    Assassin
    The assassin is allowed 2-3 minutes (depending on the area) to run into it and prepare their ambush. They may use any tactic they wish apart from the following. Chainstabbing, glitching or modding. The invader may heal, but may only use 3 humanity total to heal.

    Bodyguard
    The bodyguard must abide by the NK code of conduct. They otherwise may use any tactic. Their job is to keep the host alive, protecting them from mobs and the assassin all the way to the fog gate.

    In order to complete the challenge the knight must reach the boss fog gate with the host. He must be touching the gate as the host enters it. The invader does not have to be killed i.e. they can be alive and the challenge is still complete. If the host dies at any point during the challenge (whether to mobs or the assassin) the challenge is failed.

    Challenge Areas
    New Londo - Completed 0/0
    Archives and Crystal Caves - Completed 0/0
    Tomb of Giants - Completed 0/0
    Catacombs - Completed 0/0
    NG+ Btown - Completed 0/0
    Anor Londo 2nd Bonfire - Completed 0/0

    You could sign me up for any role, as soon as there are two who can arrange a time I would happily fill the remaining spot.

    Since Hosts can't use any weapons / shields / spells. What's the ruling on Unarmed stuff, can I fist BS? unarmed parry?

    You can't BS or parry. You can only use force, roll and run. I'll clarify it in the rules.

    Also you should consider a hefty reward, perhaps within the NK, for any Host/Bodygaurd team that gets past Crystal Caves. I invade their often, but only when I'm seriously unwillingly to accept a lose. It's not even close to fair.

    haha thanks vatar. The bodyguard will be SL 80, so the host can be anything from 64-99ish though closer to 80 is preferable. The vader can really be any SL lower than the host so it the 40-80 range would be good.

    Around 80 would be at a great sweet spot where I could use the same build for Bodygaurding Hosting or Invading. So my vote goes there!

    perhaps some info on what the unacceptable shortcuts are?

    Well Cats you couldn't do any of the drops. You'd have to turn every bridge in order and walk down.
    ToG you would also not be allowed to do any drops.
    New londo you would have to use the lifts to get down.
    Anor londo you cant do the stairs jump.
    Generally I would ask you to use common sense and take the typical "newbie" route. The route a new player would take through the area.

    So can I,as a Host,explore anything in the Crystal caves and aggro Crystal Butterfly because they seem cute and harmless x3?

    Basically,can I act as a "newb" who rely on the Knight to guide him through a level he never went(like not knowing about invisible bridges)?

    Right guys, now while its all cool to sign up we need to start doing these things! We now have at least one person for each job so start organising who wants to do what (you can use this thread) and when you can all get on.

    I am up for being both an assassin and bodyguard. Possibly the host also.

    Build for Assassin + Bodyguard:

    Well as host you wouldnt be able to use weapons. And as a bodyguard i would prefer you didnt use the PG set so the assassins doesnt get confused.
