  1. Welcome to the Assassin Fellowship of the Ring ...Also known as the Challenge #43 Assassin Mini Challenge! Now, I hear we have a piece of fancy jewelry to deliver to Mordor... what say you, nerds? Ready to have an adventure? I'm a wizard. I can mix canons if I like. If you're ready, then grab your walking shoes and listen up! How It Works: This mini is open to all who wish to participate, with a few restrictions: All Assassins are eligible to participate and earn stats, as always. Recruits MAY NOT participate. Please come back next time, after you have completed your first full 6WC. If you have questions about this rule, please PM me. Members of other guilds are welcome to join the game, but please note that you will not be able to earn any stat points. You can still play just for fun, however. If you have questions about this rule, please PM me. Participants will be split into 4 groups - elves, dwarves, humans, and hobbits. If you are an Assassin and you have NOT completed the Assassin sign-up form, please do so and you will be assigned a race. You can see the current roster here. You will be locked into your chosen race for the duration of the mini and will not be able to change races. Different races may receive bonuses in certain challenges, so picking based on your strengths may be wise. Note that there is no guarantee that you will receive your first choice of team if the numbers aren't balanced, but I will do my best. If you are a non-Assassin participant, please PM me your first choice of race and I will assign you to a team. Keep an eye on this main thread. Each week, the Fellowship will be given a task to complete as they journey to Mordor. Although we are working together to get the One Ring to Mordor, we're also searching out the most worthy among us... the one who will earn the right to carry and destroy the Ring in the end. Your group may be called upon to nominate a champion... maybe even more than once. So work hard and prove your worth! Let's Go!
  2. THE ONLY WAY IS UP Congratulations, intrepid Assassins! We've made it to Mordor. Now the only remaining obstacle is this little hill here..... and we don't have wings, alas. But with our friends to help us, surely we can scale this mountain and deliver this ring to its demise at last. HOW TO PLAY: I mix my fandoms as I please~ You've guessed it - to climb this mountain, we will be doing mountain climbers. One rep = both legs.The one exception to the above is if you have an injury that means you cannot do mountain climbers safely. If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise.It takes 6,000 climbers to reach the top of the mountain. Until the team's climbers are complete, their champions will not be able to begin their challenge. And speaking of champions...SELECT YOUR CHAMPION! Each team will volunteer one champion for a final PVP face-off that will determine who ultimately gets to toss the ring into the volcano. The champion challenge will be worth 200 points for the winning team, so the potential advantage is huge!Please enter the champion's name in the spreadsheet... details of the PVP are forthcoming as soon as the first team reaches the rim of the volcano (completes their 6,000 climbers), so no, you won't know what you'll be doing when you sign up.The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom. This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it. >>TIME TO CLIMB<< Still need to sign up for a team? PM starsapart to be assigned. Normal Mini-Challenge Rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! Every Assassin who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 WIS for wisely choosing to dispose of the One Ring instead of keeping it! Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
  3. IT'S JUST A LITTLE NARROW... We're nearly to Mordor now! Only a few obstacles stand in out path..... such as this lovely bit of scenery. Oh, and this harmless-looking creature: Easy as pie, right? Get through the tunnels, defeat the giant spider... we'll be at Mount Doom in time for second breakfast. HOW TO PLAY: First, getting through the tunnels. They're narrow in some places... to get through, each team will have to collectively do 1,000 bear crawls. 1 rep = moving BOTH legs and BOTH arms (2 "steps").RACE BONUS IN PLAY! Hobbits are good at fitting in tight spaces, so each bear crawl for team hobbit will count for 1.5 points instead of 1.Once your team has reached Shelob (completed 1000 bear crawls), you must defeat the spider! Unfortunately, we don't have a special gift from Galadriel to help us along. Fortunately, we're pretty tough and can fight her via conventional means.Shelob has 4,000 HP total that needs to be depleted. To deplete this, we're going to be doing leg raises (how does this relate to fighting? I'm sure you can come up with some sort of analogy - work with me here and pretend they're kicks; we're doing some core madness this week). 1 rep = down and back up again.The one exception is if you have an injury that means you cannot do either bear crawls or leg raises safely. If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise. If you can do one but not the other, that's fine - work with your teammates.The teams that reach Shelob fastest and do the most damage before the spider goes down will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom. This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it. >>GET CRAWLING<< Still need to sign up for a team? PM starsapart to be assigned. Normal Mini-Challenge Rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! Every Assassin who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 DEX for making their speedy way through the tunnels! Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
  4. YOU AND WHAT ARMY? Time to get back on the road! Of course, there's something between us and our destination. Rather a lot of somethings... Between the Assassin Fellowship and an orc army, anyone with half a brain would bet on the Fellowship, right? HOW TO PLAY: For this mini, we'll be fighting orcs with swords and bows! To perform a lunging sword or ax strike, do a jumping lunge. To draw your bow or crossbow and loose an arrow or bolt, do a pull-up.For purposes of this challenge, you may count any pull-up progression variant that is suitably challenging for you. Honor system, please. Dumbbell or barbell rows are fine, as are negatives, assisted pull-ups, and even scapular pulls, if this is your current level. Please don't do thousands of scapular pulls if you can do a full pull-up, okay?Please perform jumping lunges unless you cannot jump. If and only if you cannot jump, walking lunges are an acceptable substitution. No other substitutions will be accepted.The one exception to the above is if you have an injury that means you cannot do either pulling exercises or lunges safely. If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise. If you can do one but not the other, that's fine - do the one you CAN perform.15 sword/ax strikes (lunges) = 1 dead orc. 5 arrows/bolts fired (pull-ups) = 1 dead orc. The spreadsheet does the math so please just enter reps.RACE BONUS IN PLAY! Because humans are particularly versatile in battle, they've got an edge (har har) when it comes to sword strikes. For humans, it takes only 10 sword blows to kill an orc instead of 15.SELECT YOUR CHAMPION! Each team will volunteer one champion for a PVP battle against the Orc squad leaders. Please enter the champion's name in the spreadsheet... details of the PVP are forthcoming in the next few days, so no, you won't know what you'll be doing when you sign up.The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom. This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it. >>HUNT SOME ORC<< Still need to sign up for a team? PM starsapart to be assigned. Normal Mini-Challenge Rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! Every Assassin who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 CON for standing against the orcs! Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
  5. EVEN HEROES NEED TO RELAX All this traveling sure is wearying. Fortunately, the Mines of Moria are now behind us, and we've got some very fine hosts caring for us while we recover from too many push-ups our hard-won battle. Before we continue on our journey, it's time to decompress and regain our energy. You must know by now what this means that it's time for... Wait. No. That's not it. Actually, it's time for some some yoga. Competitive yoga, because we are Assassins. HOW TO PLAY: For this mini, we will be completing yoga videos. Here is the list of selected videos, by level:Beginner:Yoga for the Upper BackBeginners' Yoga for Leg Strength​Intermediate:Happy HamstringsFlow to Side CrowBalancing Backbends​Advanced:​Power for Deep ReleaseRise to PowerParticipants are limited to completing ONE yoga video/class per day. That means the maximum number per person would be 7.You may repeat the same video as many times as you like, or do a different video every day. Please take care of yourself and stay safe. Some of these do involve advanced asanas that are not suitable for every level of practitioner. If you get into a video and it is too difficult, feel free to make modifications to keep the experience safe and enjoyable for yourself. In most cases, the teacher in the video will suggest alternatives.​​All videos are between 20-40 minutes long. If you take a yoga class/do another video of at least 20+ minutes, you may count it towards the goal in place of the above.HOWEVER, anyone who completes the exact 7 listed above (without substitutions) may award themselves an additional completion bonus.RACE BONUS IN PLAY! Because elves are already pretty at home here in Rivendell, each video for team elf will count for 1.5 points instead of 1. Completion bonus is still worth 1 point each.The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom. This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it. >>DO AS THE LOCALS DO<< Still need to sign up for a team? PM starsapart to be assigned. Normal Mini-Challenge Rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! Every Assassin who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 CHA for being a good guest! Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
  6. IT'S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! Our initial hike behind us, it is time to enter the Mines of Moria. Lovely this time of year, certainly - time for a pleasant stroll, because nothing dangerous could possibly ever hap- -pen. Or not. It seems we're not alone down here! Well, you know what this means......... TIME TO FIGHT! HOW TO PLAY: For this mini, we'll be fighting Balrog! There will be two exercises available: one for attacking and one for dodging. To attack Balrog, do a push-up. To dodge a blow, do a squat.For purposes of this challenge, you may count any squat or push-up variant that is suitably challenging for you. Honor system, please. You may do squats with weight, but each rep still counts as one rep, regardless of the extra weight you added. You may not substitute bench press for push-ups.The one exception is if you have an injury that means you cannot do either squats or push-ups safely. If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise. If you can do one but not the other, that's fine - do the one you CAN perform and work with your teammates to balance the blows and dodges.Your team will have to do both attacks and dodges to earn points. For each attack point, a dodge point must also be entered, or the attack point will not count. The amount of damage you deal will therefore be dependent on your number of dodges as well as your number of attacks.RACE BONUS IN PLAY! Because dwarves are short more accustomed to fighting underground, they have an easier time dodging in this battle. Each squat for team dwarf will count for 1.5 points instead of 1.The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom. This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it. >>BLOW AWAY BALROG<< Still need to sign up for a team? PM starsapart to be assigned. Normal Mini-Challenge Rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! Every Assassin who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 STR for fighting their way through the Mines! Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
  7. SIMPLY DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE! Clearly, he doesn't know us very well. We Assassins "simply" do the impossible every single day. This week, though, our quest is deceptively easy. How does one get to Mordor? By walking, of course. Shhhhh..... we don't logic here. HOW TO PLAY: It doesn't get much simpler than this: walk and track your distance.For purposes of this challenge, you may count ONLY walking. No running, jogging, biking, swimming, rowing, flying....... etc.The one exception is if you have a lower body injury that means you cannot walk safely. If this is your situation, please PM starsapart and get an alternative exercise.If you have a pedometer and are tracking your steps over the course of your day, that's fine - just translate into miles or kilometers. Otherwise, count treadmill distance, walking around your neighborhood after second-breakfast distance... anything is game.There are no race bonuses for this mini challenge.The teams that perform best on this task will earn additional prestige, helping them make their case for being the worthiest of all races... thus bringing their champion one step closer to delivering the Ring to Mount Doom. This mini-challenge lasts until SUNDAY 11:59PM EST... so get to it. >>PUT ON YOUR WALKING SHOES<< Still need to sign up for a team? PM starsapart to be assigned. Normal Mini-Challenge Rules: - Mini-challenges are not mandatory, feel free to ignore this one if you don't want to participate. Don't let mini-challenges hinder your own goals. - If you're not sure how to register something, post it here. - Keep it simple! - Don't hurt yourself! Every Assassin who competes in this mini-challenge gets +1 STA for helping carry the Ring to Mordor! Assassins, remember to be safe and have fun!
