Description Edit | History

PATHFINDER LEAGUE

This Guild will be used to run the Pathfinder version of Circus Maximus, a PbF game created by The Guild of the Sacred Sand. It will contain guidelines on how to join the game and submit a character, as well host the game itself. This Guild will be open to anyone who wishes to participate in the game.

Rules of the Game

We will be sticking very closely to the Rules as Written, (RAW), of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. RAW will exclude "optional" rules unless specifically allowed by Arbiters and explicitly stated in a rules thread.

In addition, the Circus Maximus specific rules, clarifications, restrictions and additions listed below will be used.

For any rules questions please use the Rules Clarification Thread.

Tournament Cycles

The primary battles of the Circus Maximus are single elimination tournaments. Tournaments will require a minimum of 8 contestants. Tournaments will start as scheduled or when the minimum number of entrants is met. (Which ever happens last.) A Tournament Cycle begins when at least one tournament begins and ends when all relevant tournaments are concluded. Multiple Tiers will be run simultaneously.

Tournaments will be separated by tiers. Tournaments Tiers will be grouped by PC levels. PCs will be lumped together as follows:

Tier 1 - Levels 1-2 together
Tier 2 - Levels 3-5 together
Tier 3 - Levels 6-8 together
Tier 4 - Levels 9-11 together
Tier 5 - Levels 12-14 together
Tier 6 - Levels 15-17 together
Tier 7 - Levels 18-19 together

Tournament Matchups

Character positioning is determined by a 1d1000 at the beginning of each Tournament Cycle. The highest result will be placed in Slot #1. The second highest result will be placed into Slot #2 and so on until all are placed. If there happens to be a tie, the character with the higher ranking is considered the "higher" roll. If it is still a tie, only the tied players will reroll.

Tournament Elimination

A character may be eliminated from a match in a number of ways. Below is a list of ways characters may be eliminated. (This is not an exhaustive list)

> A character is reduced to Negative Hit Points
> A character would have any Ability Score reduced to 0 or less
> A character becomes Helpless
> A character is incapable of continuing any actions due to current status.
> A character Yields for any reason, (Character's may only choose to yield at the beginning of their turn.)
> A character Forfeits for any reason
> The GM of the match rules a character is eliminated
> An Arbiter rules a character is eliminated

Exhibition Cycle

Exhibition Matches differ from Tournament Matches as they are not ranked and there is a high potential of characters to be Killed/Destroyed. There are different types of Exhibition Matches characters will be able to enter 1 match of each type per Cycle. An Exhibition Cycle begins when the first Exhibition Match begins and ends when all scheduled Exhibition matches conclude.

Exhibition Fight

Each Exhibition Cycle characters may volunteer for 1 Exhibition Fight either individually, or as a team of up to 4 characters. These matches pit the characters against GM run opponents. These matches are not ranked for determining tournament standings.

Types of Fights available;

Single PC vs Single or Multiple NPC(s)*
Single PC vs Single or Multiple Creature(s)
Team of PCs vs Single or Multiple NPC(s)*
Team of PCs vs Single or Multiple Creature(s)

* NPC = A creature with Class Level(s).

Exhibition Challenges

Each Exhibition Cycle any Player Character(s) may challenge any other Player Character(s) to a PvP match. (Limit of up to 4 characters per team.) Player Characters receiving a challenge may choose to Pass on the challenge instead of Accepting the Challenge without penalty. Each character may participate in only 1 Exhibition Challenge per Cycle. These matches are not ranked for determining tournament standings.

Special Exhibition Events

Occasionally a special type of Exhibition Match will be announced by the Arbiters. These Special Exhibitions may include unique prizes, challenges and rewards. These matches are not ranked for determining tournament standings.

Exhibition Matchups

Character order is determined by a 1d1000 at the beginning of each Exhibition Cycle. The highest result have first choice of Exhibition Match options and so on until all are placed. If there is a tie, only the tied players will reroll.

Exhibition Elimination

A character may be eliminated from a match in a number of ways. Below is a list of ways characters may be eliminated. (This is not an exhaustive list)

> A character is Killed/Destroyed
> A character would have any Ability Score reduced to 0 or less
> A character becomes Helpless
> A character is incapable of continuing any actions due to current status.
> A character Yields for any reason, (Character's may only choose to yield at the beginning of their turn.)
> A character Forfeits for any reason
> The GM of the match rules a character is eliminated
> An Arbiter rules a character is eliminated

Draws

> If for any reason, all contestants are eliminated as a result of the same action. All contestants will be awarded XP as if they had won the match and GP as if they had lost the match. All Characters will be eliminated from the Cycle.

> No character will be advanced to the next round, and the opponent of the following round is granted a Bye.

> If the winner of the match would have been crowned Champion, there is not a Champion and the Grand Prize is left unclaimed.
