ARENA 04

Tributes Will Be Released Into Arena 04 on November 10th.

**Special Notice! We are now allowing tributes to be released into the game mid Game Cycle. Any newly-approved character will be allowed to participate in THIS ARENA. We will keep everyone apprized of the details as/if this begins to occur.





Setting.

This arena is not a warm paradise. A thickly-forested canyon leads to a ruined structure situated on a rocky cliff-side constantly pounded by harsh waves. Here, the ocean air is cold and damp, and thick fog is present from nightfall and lingers on until the harsher light of mid-morning finally burns it away. But even in the daylight there is a chill damp that settles into everything and the only shelter from it appears to be inside the ruins.

And they are impressive ruins. A heavy shell composed of metal and concrete still stand protective over a stone building of several stories, and the Cornucopia itself sits right within the confines of that shell. Although the shell appears to be relatively intact, the surrounding remains of what must have once been other buildings themselves suggest that the combination of time and constant erosion have taken their toll on the area.

Inside the protected building are several large, open processing rooms, and what appear to may have once been offices, labs, hallways, break rooms, etc. The deeper you get in the darker it is, and although the rats, the ocean, and time have taken their toll, it's clear this place was left in a hurry. In some places the walls are coated with a thick black mold that glows, sometimes brightly, depending on how much there is. Nice to see by, but you probably don't want to risk touching it.



Outside of the ruins, a canyon leads away from ocean and the gentle sea grass, up into a rich forest. There is evidence of the forest having overrun more buildings that once stood here, but now only their ghosts linger as cement slabs and piles of bricks. The forest is abundant with multitudes of animals; finding food won't be hard this arena. But something is just a little wrong with all of these animals...

There is some small amount of access to the ocean, but it is not easy to get to, and then only at low tide. The water is rough, and equipment from the building, whatever it was, litters the area. Submerged material is a serious danger, as is being caught at the bottom of the cliffs at high tide.

At night, however, something out in that water glows. If the air is clear it is beautiful and surreal, in the fog it is eerie. And when the fog works its way into the glowing passages of the building, it's even worse.

Supplies.

The Cornucopia is your first, most important resource. Around it are scattered the available resources:


Weapons:
-Bow and Arrow
-Spear
-Machete
-Bo staff
-Ax


Equipment:
-many blank cans, presumed to contain foodstuffs and/or water
-10 watertight bags; contents unknown. Each bag contains multiple items from the following list:
    Food
    Water
    empty metal bottle
    50' rope
    50' twine
    folding knife
    heavy sleeping bag
    fishing hooks
    fire-starting materials
    de-salinator
    regular sleeping bag
    10'x10' square of fine white netting
    exceptionally weighty jacket



Shelter is available within the ruins but although some supplies may be found in the many crumbling offices and rooms within, it is not recommended to use them. Canned beans don't taste so good after a few decades.

Although dry wood would be hard to find outside, there is enough still inside to keep you warm. If you can find something to light, it lights surprisingly easy and burns warm and long.

Fresh water can be found in small streams in the woods and through the canyon.




Immediate Hazards.

-The cold. Although it is brisk during the day, at night the temperature drops drastically. And it is a damp, wet cold that goes straight to your bones.

-The cliffs. The ocean is not gentle beneath them, and the ground is eroded away and slick, easy to slip down. And not really all that stable.

-Debris. Broken glass, rusty metal, pieces of re-bar, barbed wire remnants... the left overs of whatever was here aren't exactly good for your health.

-Unstable ruins. Although they offer shelter, the ruins are also not in good shape. Floors can crumble out from under you, walls collapse, railings snap. Nothing is very structurally sound here.

-Wild animals. These animals aren't used to humans, but they're not afraid of them, either.



Wildlife.

There is an abundance of wildlife in this arena. Many of the animals have mutations such as multiple limbs or discolorations.

**Small birds. There are tons of them. Just like any small bird, if they see food they will help themselves, so watch your supplies. However, many of them have deformed tails and are easy to catch. The birds roost all over the building, and inside is full of nests.

**Wild dogs. These dogs are not scared of human, vicious, and roam in a small pack. Watch for them.

**Deer. They run smaller than normal, but still have a decent amount of meat on them. Many also seem to be deaf, and the multiple limb deformity runs highest in them.

**Rabbits, etc. The forest is brimming with small animals.

**Rats. The building is also infested with them. They are quite large, some reaching the size of house-cats, and also quite bold. They might even attack a person alone, especially deep in the dark of the building.



Foodstuffs:

All of the above animals could be killed and eaten with the right equipment, and the birds' nests are ripe for raiding. In addition, as mentioned above there is limited (and risky) access to the ocean at low tide if you are in the mood for sea food.

There is also edible flora around, but just as in any forest, be careful which you eat. Poison berries, mushrooms, and all sorts of unpleasant things litter the area.


Full Arena Map:



Explore away!


Cornucopia.
With each new Arena opening, your character has the opportunity to grab themselves a few supplies! (At the risk of facing almost every other tribute in the arena at the same time, of course.) If you would like your character to make a run for the cornucopia, please comment to this thread so we can roll for your chance of success. And don't worry if you don't remember what your odds of success/death/etc. are; if you decide to chance it, you can find the information on what all that entails, here. (Scroll down to the cornucopia and death roll sections.)

Plotting.
Since everyone is about to be at the same place at the same time, this is a perfect opportunity for some exciting things to happen. We have a thread started for anyone who wants to discuss new arena plots, here.


Gamemakers [Mods].
Any arena-related questions, comments, concerns are also welcome in this thread at any time.

As always, we here at The Games would like to wish you a very happy Hunger Games!

May the odds be ever in your favour.

Neeshka is going for it this time! :) Bow and arrows are her first choice, the bags of supplies are her her second choice, and the machete is her third choice.

Alpha is going for it! He'll be wanting the machete, but he'll also go for anything with a sharp edge if he misses that, and he'll also try for a bag, after a weapon.

Ok, lets try this again NOT logged into the mod account

Tony will be aiming for one of the bags. And probably any cans he can get his hands on.

Screw you Haymitch, Tony does what he wants.

Eliot will be going for the Cornucopia again, aiming for the ax or machete, a bag, and whatever canned goods he can grab. He'd really like a folding knife and a heavy sleeping bag.

Kevin will also be going for the Cornucopia this time. He'll be skipping the weapons and aiming for some rope or twine a bag and some canned goods.

At some point, he'll also be exploring the ruins a little bit.

He won't be an easy target though, he has some fighting skills.

She'll be doing her helpless teenage girl act, on the off chance that someone will fall for it.

She'll also be going back to the cornucopia after the bloodbath to see if anything's left there - after that she'll just be trying to avoid the ruins.

Incoming really stupid question of the day: is Jade eligible for this arena or did I app too near the start?

I feel like I should know this but the last thing I want is to post somewhere only to be told "what the hell do you think you're doing." That would be embarrassing.
