OOC: For the purposes of this activity, it might be wiser to consider this 'historical' due to the timeframe. I am going to hold off any major posts until after the 4th of July to give people time to still state their intention to participate...

You're at your office as you hear running coming from the hallway. The sound of shoes hitting the ground gets louder and louder when, in through your door, dashes a man in a suit. The suit is sloppily put together and you can see a bottle of Iverica wine in one hand and Mauridivian Tequila in the other. 

Sir, I'm here to sign the Shffahkian delegation up for the Olympics! 

He proclaims in a drunken yet excited voice. Afterwards he walks outside the door and you hear a thump. You go and see that the head of the Shffahkian Olympics Committee is passed out before your door.

OOC: Okay, I've waited long enough to post something. I will begin finalizing my draft for posting tomorrow night. @Fulgistan: Can you send me the name of a few arenas that would be used in the games. I'll figure out how to score events...

@Rihan with all these competitions, is it still like the soccer championships that RP participation increases chances of success? Also, how do you know which teams compete in which competitions, and how are the winners selected?

@Sunset Sea Islands, what a wonderful question to ask.

At this moment, I am assuming every nation is participating in every event or at least every major competition category. For those sports that involve 'rounds' like Football or Field Hockey for example, I will do a very quick score generation and whip up matches in the same fashion on the UENA.

For most events, I have a points generator, 0-100. The highest number gets gold, second, and third, hence silver and bronze.

Now, you asked about would RP'ing help one's success. It could -- as some nations may not want to compete in every event (which is only realistic for the largest nations). If there are events that you would like a better 'chance' like I have more 'swimming strength' than 'weightlifting strength,' tell me and we can talk about it. I do hope that most nations are able to come away with a few medals. Though for the Little Flau team I mentioned in the intro, they are only able to win, well, so many given the size of their team.

@Rihan Sweet, thanks!

I've compiled a list of sports I think my people would be good at, naturally, I am more than ready to RP to earn boni, should such mechanics be introduced (the easiest way would be to introduce point multiplicators, for example, in direct correspondence to written words per competition, whilst keeping it within the limit of 100 points).

Also, regarding the football competition, I assume that it's for junior teams, right? I don't know much about this, but iirc Germany always lets its sub 19-year-old teams compete.

Since it's our first proper Olympics, I am open to such a move -- perhaps for specific event categories...

And yes Junior teams on football, and generally other 'team' comeptitions like field hockey, basketball, baseball, etc.
