    Russian Roulette Duels
    Soul Level 100 - 120 on PSN in The Depths
    Soul Level 100 - 120 on XBOX in The Painted World

    NEXT EVENT:
    April 20th, 2013

    WHAT:
    Russian Roulette Duels are friendly fights using fully randomized weapons, these duels will test the ingenuity and adaptability of the fighters. Six items will be dropped by the host, contestants will select and fight with just 2 weapons.
    Events will be held every weekend at 1:00 PM EST in The Depths.

    RULES:
    - Do not bring other weapons, shields or casting equipment, only use the weapons provided to you.
    - Bring only one set of armour.
    - Limit backstabbing to 2 (two) per fight and don't chain them.
    - All spells are acceptable, use whatever you have at your disposal.
    - Consumables, such as weapon buffs and arrows/bolts are permitted, you are encouraged to bring them.
    - Weapons and shields will be provided in a single pile (6 items) you can only hold a max of 2 at any given time. If you want to make substitutions you can only do it after the fight has started, and you must drop one before picking up another. You should never hold 3 items at a time.
    - Be courteous to your opponent, it's all for fun.

    Please add me on PSN: SgtPigeon, it will make it easier for me to contact and reclaim weapons. I likely won't summon you unless you have added me or made a point of displaying your interest here. The PS3 event is hosted in the Depths.

    To participate in the xbox roulettes contact DivineBeanpole on XBOX live. The xbox event is hosted in the Painted World of Ariamis.

    Thats why its a roulette and you will have to risk death picking a new weapon. The six that are dropped will cater to the widest array of builds I can muster.

    If you grab a enchanted flamberge and you don't have the stats or you dont have the dex to scale it nicely you can risk running to grab a new one before the battle starts or mid-battle. Since both duelists may need to adjust you may have a moment to check or you might have to take the risk of getting swung at.

    Not to mention you will need to drop your grabbed weapon, so that the other duelist will be able to grab it if they need it.
    It will be best to come with a near empty inventory for this reason.

    Hey this is a very interesting idea! However, you are right to know before trusting anyone out there. Imagine if we are invaded and the guy just take all weapons then run/die? Must be in a very hidden area, I was thinking Sen Fortress rooftop like others suggested for FC

    Glad to see some support for the idea, I figured sen's would be nice, but sens does seem to get a lot of traffic. If worse comes to worse I will simply have to re-drop weapons if an unexpected red comes in and appears hostile. As the host I will get a few souls for every duel so any stolen weapons shouldn't be a hassle to replace for the following event, if we choose to do this more than once.

    As it stands, I think all I will request is that people send me a friend invite on my psn stating they are interested in the roulette, and I will then look for their summon signs. So far we only have about 4 people expressing interest so it shouldnt be too much to handle.

    I am not sure if anyone here is on the 360, but I of course won't be able to support them.

    Would you be allowed to drop anything that can be used as a weapon?

    Havel's Shield

    Skull Lanter

    +5 Chaos Sword Hilt

    +3 Long Bow.

    Would that be allowed, or is it just being too ridiculous?

    Hey, I contemplated shields, I have some upgraded bone, spike and other offensive shields. But I wasn't sure how cool everyone would be with the idea of getting a shield in a fight unless it was an ALL shield fight.

    Also, I wondered what do you guys think, should the duelests bring their own shields? Or should they be expected to 2hand or parry with their hands? Or should I provide 12 weapons 6 being shields, catalysts, or bows and the other 6 being weapons?

    I'd like to hear your feedback.

    Also, not sure what kind of duel standards you want to follow, I would think BS are tolerated but should not be fished for, same for parries. I don't want to watch 2 people dance the tango trying to get a BS.

    no shields, only thing you bring to the table i think should be rings and armour, and unlucky to those guys whose weapon takes them over the equip limit for DWGR silly

    I will drop a broken moonlight greatsword just to piss people off.

    I think you should only get to use what is dropped, that's it.

    agreed tolvo, i think this is a great idea, and i'd certainly make a pure Melee jack of all trades build (my intended cosplay build) to do this, will be fun i think big grin

    So serious, you mean no dropping of shields at all? Or that they should be mixed in to a second drop with things like catalysts talismans etc?

    How about no armor/non upgradable and blue tearstone, the phantoms yeild when the tearstone kicks in (It will count as a loss), then drop there weapons an get ready for round 2, repeat, then once done with round three, they drop their weapons and the winner gets to execute the loser

    Yukon i mean no bringing shields like you said. Only thing in your hands you should have is the one thing you picked up, whether it's a shield vs a moonlight greatsword silly

    The idea of the tearstone is a nice one, It would reduce the hunting I would have to do to reclaim my weapons haha.

    But it would also consume a ring slot, and I think people should be able to bring ONE set of armor, like serious said, if they go over the DWGR burden or turn to slugs it's tough cookies. This is partly because I don't want to be the one condoning naked wrestling when I drop 2 fists and stand back with my seeing eye glass. haha.

    What about dropping Pyro hands and talismans, are you for that? It could end up you having to punch someone to death with velka's talisman if you don't have spells to cast on you. Or you could end up running around trying to cast spells if you get lucky.

    indeed, i think it should be compulsory to wear armour too, so that it increases the risk of going over burden.

    Im for that too yukon, i think it would be rather funny and it would mean people would rock up with some interesting builds gambling on getting a casting item... I'm actually excited over this crazy little idea lol!

    "Alright, I have really high int, really high. And casting is allowed. One CSS will be the end of this. Oh what did I get!....Sunlight Talisman? SUNLIGHT TALISMAN? SUNLIGHT TALISMAAAAAAAAAAAN!"

    This is a genius idea.
