Hello all, and welcome to the OPENING CEREMONY of SHH! Survivor 31: Oscar Night! I am your host for this (long) evening shall be your friendly neighborhood Spider-Fan, and joining me in the hosting seat will be non-other than fellow Oscars enthusiast and first time host, Nirvana!!!

We have a great show in for you this Oscar Night. We have a great crew of players! Some old friends, who carry visions of Survivor's past and future glory with them! We also have some new friends, who will attempt to make their mark on this long standing tradition of SHH!

Tonight, you get to play with your fellow hype brothers and compete for common glory! At first, you will be in teams. Then, you will cruely be cast of into the world on your own! Now, I know you're all wondering who teams are. Well, here are our 4 teams:

Team 1

bullets
JewishHobbit
Odinson
twylight

Team 2

Cmill216
enterthemadness
Iron Fist
Parker Wayne

Team 3

Byrd Man
ComicChick
Severus_Snape
Ultra Lantern

Team 4

Chewy
Duke
Gotham Knight
Nell2ThaIzzay
Sakuraba

Everyone, please get to know your team. For without them, you may cannot hope to succeed. Or maybe you can. We shall see. But, though we are done with the Red Carpet portion of this show, we still cannot truly move forward. Before we can decide SHH! Survivor's Best Picture, we must first find out what THE NOMINEES ARE...

That is your goal for today. Tribe forum passwords will be distributed shortly. Challenge PMs will be sent out around 8-8:30pm EST!

Also, I HIGHLY recommend everyone take a few minutes and read the updated rules for SHH! Survivor 31: Oscar Night. While similar to past games, there are some differences from the set of rules you previously read in the sign up thread:

The Game

Hype! Survivor is a game of strategy, deception, and skill. Alliances are both permitted and encouraged. Make no allies or make many allies, it's all up to you. There are many different ways to win this game. Masterminding, forethought, and hard work are the keys to success. Laziness and ineffective play will both be exposed and punished. Although being lazy may be a strategy, not participating at all is not. If the players and hosts feel at any time that a certain player is no longer participating, they can be removed from the game without warning.

As a side note: alliances can be with any of the players. It doesn't matter who they are nor what tribe they're on, just make sure it's someone you trust...or not. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer!


Challenges

Each tribe (or individual) will receive challenges marked by "Awards". Instructions for challenges will be explained for each challenge. Some challenges may require judging, some may be trivia, some may be skill. Expect a variety for your playing pleasure. The tribe (or person) who does the best, wins immunity and is therefore safe from elimination that round.


Tribal Council

During the team portion of the game, the tribe who performed best at the end of the 'Award' (or round) wins immunity. The losing tribes will then go to “Tribal Council” and eliminate 1 player from the game. They will be able to eliminate ANYONE from one of the losing tribes of the “Award.” Doesn't have to be one of your own.

In the case of a tie at tribal council, there will be a tie-breaker challenge between the players with the most votes. The winner of the tie-breaker will determine who stays. During the solo portion of the game a tie-breaker challenge will also be used. The player who does the best on the tie-breaker will be allowed to stay, the other player will be eliminated.

If a tribe (or player) happens to win first place three days in a row, then they'll be given a gift in addition to their immunity. They will go to tribal council on behalf of everyone by themselves and they'll vote off ANYONE IN THE GAME THAT THEY CHOOSE. This privilege is not static, but must be re-earned by winning another three challenges. This is the only time an immune team would vote. In all other cases, the immune team DOES NOT vote!!!

In order to have your votes counted, please send them to both Spider-Fan and Nirvana. Please do NOT send your votes in to any other name. You will only have one chance to vote. There will be no changing your vote once your vote is cast. Vote carefully! If you do not send in a vote in the given time frame, IT WILL COUNT AGAINST YOU. Meaning, it will be a vote for yourself.


Hosts

Your hosts have gone to great lengths to ensure fairness. Merges, shuffles, and so on have been set in place. Only the hosts will know about these days in advance. There will be additional twists and turns throughout the game, so do not get too cozy.

At times, individual judgment calls will need to be made. We understand that players will not always see eye-to-eye with hosts. HOWEVER, the hosts word is final. There will be no negotiating hard and fast rules, but all cases will be fairly heard. Rest assured, there is a hosting staff dedicated to handling the hosting responsibilities. If need be, we will even vote on matters for the sake of the game's integrity.

Furthermore, there are additional rules (for the host's eyes only). These have been set in place to help us with matters that may or may not arise. Please consult hosts before assuming anything. They may be able to help you out if you have a question.


Jury

The final Jury will be composed of seven people (everyone voted off from the remaining nine players who didn't make the finals). The Jury will then vote FOR WHO THEY THINK SHOULD WIN of the final two remaining players so we can crown the winner of the Hype! Survivor.


Cheating

A note on cheating: It's very easy to cheat in this game. Very, very easy. Some of the rounds will be much more difficult to cheat at than others (some will be downright impossible to cheat on). Regardless, hosts have ways of catching you and sometimes will even set up traps for you. If you feel you have to cheat, by all means, go ahead. But, if you're caught, you WILL be penalized. Again, specific rules of what's legal or not will be in each challenge PM.

One thing that is certainly NOT lawful under any circumstances is sharing usernames. Hosts (of which, one is a moderator) have the ability to check IPs, and if you are caught sharing usernames then a severe penalty will be handed out. Please be mindful of only using your OWN username for this game.

Team Forum

During the team portion of the game, all tribes will have their own subforum. This is where they can brainstorm on all challenges and leave notes for the rest of their team. Each of these will require a password to use. The password will be changed everytime someone is eliminated from your tribe. Each team member will be given the password to their own forum. However, these is no rule against sharing passwords with other teams. That is a legitimate strategy, and all players should be weary of it.

Team Captain

A team captain will be chosen before the start of each new "Issue". They will be chosen through a majority vote from the entire team. The team captain is responsible for submitting challenge answers or tasks. If they cannot do so during that time frame, they must post who will do so in their team forum or by sending a pm to BOTH hosts.

Moderators

I know mods have certain abilities they can't turn off. But, do not use mod powers to your advantage. This includes using the washroom, IP tracking, etc. Ask me to do all that stuff. Abuse of mod powers will be punished.

Misc.

Whilst these rules are set as the guidelines for this game, each challenge will set the rules for that specific day. What may be cheating one day, may not be another day. Reading is fundamental. Make sure you familiarize yourself with this information, and those in the challenges as well. Please note that at times an announcement might be needed to amend the existing rules of this game, or the rules in the challenge. Please look for these and note them. Each 'Award' is marked by a new challenge.

Interesting tribes. Good balance of power players, challenge players, low key players, and newbies. As reigning champion (yes, I am going to say that as much as possible) I just want to wish everyone luck and a great game. With the hosts that you have I am confident that it will be a lot of fun for all of you. :up:

Another shocking twist! :wow:
 
Subscribing to the thread.

Even though I could just easily do it without posting, I won't.

That's right, I'm like that. It's on, *****es! :cmad:
 
Good luck to everyone. And Spider-Fan just a heads up, I'm about to leave a question for you in our team forum about the challenge.
 
Good luck everyone... this will be the last time I'm nice to you :)
 
i'd like to quote a character from one of my favorite books, Effie Trinket:

"May the odds be ever in [my] favor".

had to paraphrase a bit lol
