OOC means out of character, right? So like, yeah- shouldn't really matter if female avs participate or even neko avs for that matter. I'd be more concerned about fairness, enforcing any rules for the tourney like 'no jumping', or checking weapons for cheats, etc. than I would be in the appearance of the avatars. Otherwise, make a dress code, or something. Or make it full on IC if you're worried about guys getting their fragile egos shattered by being bested in a video game by a toon with tits. :D

Might as well have those kinds of tourneys on the GE sims. Tournaments in the BTB ones are male oriented.

Probably true. Many BtB sims claim to be all about the RP, but many of them do retain some of the old life-styler element. Or maybe I should not call that life-style, but just the old mashing together of IC and OOC.

If it's an OOC tournament, it shouldn't matter where the thing is held. It's OOC.

Or is that impossible for you to comprehend?

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

OOC is a hard concept guise. :lol:

If the tournament is OOC, who cares who or what fights for that matter, as long as the matches are fair.

If the tournament is IC, and a woman wants to fight, tell her to make a male avatar and come fight.

If either of those options bother you, then what are you doing in a roleplay environment in the first place?

Big yes from me here.
OOC, guys what would you be afraid of? No one will actually capture you
Besides if you're as good as you claim then you should not worry.

If OOC tournament all that should matter is a valid meter and weapon being used. If a man's ego is too fragile to handle losing to a woman in a computer game they do not need to enter the tournament. Simple enough.

The way to make a "valid" IC tournament that is open to Goreans regardless of gender is create a festival for your city along the lines of Kajuralia. That festival alone shows that Goreans were not the stick-up-the-butt tightwads and had a good sense of humour. If they allow their slaves a day to do all sorts of outrageous things without punishment, why would they not permit their free women a similar vein of fun and entertainment?

If you will allow female avatar in the tournament because its OOC, would you mind if someone came in with a neko avatar in the tournament?



I see what you and the others who took this point and added examples mean. I see how it'd make sense to stay Gorean themed, but I'm also leaning more toward the people that are saying it is an OOC tournament so who cares? As to whether I'd allow neko avatar, I think I would.

As to why I made the thing OOC instead Of IC in the first place like some have asked. While I do believe that the IC tournaments are cool and all of that,people like these OOC events. Many places do dances on certain days and things like that. The group would enjoy some OOC time. They help bring things together where people can relax and joke. The making them IC sounds like a good idea too, but not this time around the tournament is tomorrow. Perhaps the next time.

Tournaments are the last 'IC' events in Gor where lindens are exchanged, so most of them are infact OOC.

A free woman's tournament will be accepted better than a mixed gender event.

Let's face it, unless the tournament scene changed dramatically over the last 3 months - it is a complete nuthouse to any sane role player.

The amount of gesturbation turns me off of attending those even if it were OOC. But I guess that's just my take.

Now if they would create those with an IC mentality and not "LOLOLOL Master!" - it'd probably be a lot more interesting for _me_ to visit them or participate in them or have them as part of RP - you know, to talk about the latest champion in the streets, about X vs Y and the poor sod they now call "Split-Jaw". It'd offer plenty of threads for others to continue weaving it into their own stories even if they were NOT participating or even present and it'd give Gorean pamphlets something to write about that actually interests people.

But if it's OOC, you might as well let anyone who wants to partake, partake.
