Runaway King Character Challenge

Hello Fantasy Lovers,

So a member, who shall remain nameless, has prodded and coaxed me to the point of basically saying I am a negligent teacher leader with my failing to update the blog with a new Runaway King game.

So here we go a new game developed by said member with a few hiccups to work out…

Dear Mr. H.,

I decided to come up with the rules for the character challenge as well as the drawings for who will be who. Can you please try and get this information up on the website asap.

AFFL Character Challenge Rules

• Your video that you use to describe your character must be no more than 2 minutes long
• You are not allowed to tell anyone else from AFFL who your character is
• You may use any props that you want
• No saying the characters name
• You have to at least try even if you don’t like the character that you receive
• You should try and have some dialogue if you can
• If you would like you can dress up like your character
• Your video must be AFFL!!! (this is mandatory)

These are all of the rules I could come up with, but if you can think of anymore to add I would be fine with that.
I also went ahead and drew the names from my AFFL bowl and got the following results. I promise that I drew all of these and didn’t choose them at random on my own.

Now these are some fantastic rules and I think this game could be a ton of fun but I do have some questions to pose.

First…. Do all members know their characters.  I have  a list developed by Carley, but if I publish it here they the game is over.  I guess members could choose their own characters and create a video, but we may just get a ton of Sage videos.

Second… This is track out and a perfect time to create videos like this, but what are we going to do when only one person makes a video?  Many of us are going out-of-town and might not have the time to develop an awesome video.  I think members might use this track out time to come up with ideas of what they want to do and start to write a script.  The filming can come later.

Third… What is and AFFL video?  If this is mandatory I think we all need to be on the same page as to what this relates to.

So here we go… an updated blog and a few questions to hammer out before we can really get into the meat of this game.

Start a comment parade to get these questions answered.

Your sorry and slothful leader,

Mr. H
