HUFFLEPUFF BATTLESHIP: THE LAST ONE FLOATING

  • EACH ROUND

    • All active players (players who aren’t hit yet) must color their posts #6699cc

    • No word count minimum for any post

  • Prep Phase

    • Each player sends 3 tile numbers to [host] in a private window. The host will pick a tile at random and the player will NOT know which tile is picked. This is to prevent people from guessing what the other players’ tiles are before the game even starts.

    • You can choose a tile that you picked to attack but you might hit yourself!

  • Attack Phase

    • Each player chooses an attack (no ooc difference) and posts a RP

    • Choice 1: Spell Type (When they send a spell of their choice while their boat rooooocks)

    • Choice 2: Squid Type (Where they wish the squid will come to their aid)

    • Along with their choice and RP, they pick a tile to attack.

    • Use this tally: SS.Name attacks tile X with spell name/a squid wish!

    • More than 1 person can attack the same tile but if a person happens to be on that tile, the kill goes to the first poster.

    • Post when the host tells you to <3

  • Results Phase

    • The host posts results, points earned, the scoreboard and tiles left.

    • Players who hit someone earn a point

    • Players who get hit sit out for future attack phases

    • Players who miss do not earn anything.

    • Each results phase is followed by an attack phase until 1 player is left floating.

    • The last one standing in the round earns an automatic 3 points.

  • Players who are out early can commentate while floating in the water~ Remember to post in black!

  • Repeat!

  • Even if you missed the prep phase, you can join in in the next round!

  • Rewards: tbe

Note: Non-Huffs are also welcomed but they must join the blast chat! Poke me if they need to be added.

Uh, was there actually a squid in these waters?

 

Seamus had heard stories, but seeing as the boy had never come anywhere near the lake after the initial boat ride he doubted the tales that had been told to him. Of course, that wouldn't stop the eleven-year-old from wishing tentacle-styled doom upon his friends! They were scattered about the lake and all Seamus could think about was catching a glimpse of those tentacles - he just hoped no one would mind if they were victims of the slimy creature!

 

After all, all is fair in love and war. Or something like that! "Heeeeeere, Mr. Squiddy Squid Squid! I just want to know if you're real or not! "

It was almost like he had been hidden under a rock for most of his first year. Which was why, as soon as he had heard about some bonding thing, Kermit had signed up. He needed to meet new hufflepuffs - and this was the perfect chance. Unless he was killed first of course... in the game.

Livia Bagshot

Some might of said that Livia's feats--placing in last year's jousting tournament, and surviving the dueling tournament for two whole rounds--meant she was good at hexing unsuspecting people. Livia disagreed; the only way she managed to get so far, in her eyes, was through evasive maneuvers. Luck most likely had something to do with it, too.

 

She couldn't exactly evade any spells while in the water, so, instead, she decided to rely on Mother Nature for help. "Hey!" she yelled loudly, hoping some of the sound would travel into the water and reach the giant cephalopod. She had never, ever done anything to antagonize it. Surely the squid would seize the opportunity to become best friends forever. "Help me, please!"

Maksim Valentin

Maksim wasn't sure how he got roped into this, but it probably helped that one, his girlfriend was a Hufflepuff, and two, his little sister was a Hufflepuff.

Somehow he always got roped into these games. Maksim wasn't about to complain though; games were awesome! "Kat, how dae ye get meh intae all o' these games?" Maksim called out to his little sister.

He felt the boat rock and fired off the first spell that came to mind. "Expelliarmus!"

Chiron Drakon

Chiron was gun ho, he was never any good at keeping calm and found random outbursts tended to at least give him a 50/50 chance!!! So getting ready he waved his wand and cried ''Flipendo!!!'' being the complete novice he was, using such a simple spell!!!

Sailing Sailing over the bounding seas... Of course captains sang as they steered their ships into battle. Okay maybe not but this was Kat's ship and she could steer it however she wanted. Now, she needed to defeat the others in Battleship.

 

Hearing her brother's comment, she grinned, "Talent!" and went back to plotting strategy. So let's pepper this up a bit. "Pyeretz!"

Oh my! That was a surprise to find she had tossed Maksim overboard. "Sorry?" she asked with a grin sort of really not sorry because, after all, this was a game to win or lose and she had no intention of losing yet. With that, she took aim and "Flipendo!"

Oh Merlin, the squid is real!

 

Seamus let out a yelp as he saw the tentacles come out of the water to harass a few of the others who were scattered about the lake. It was a lot scarier than he had thought it would be, but, he supposed he couldn't let that stop him from dominating the waters. The smaller boy reached for his wand from the depths of his wand, pulling it out as he fired a spell out. Slugs were kind of like squids, right? "Vomere Limcais!"

Kit was a little bemused about what was going on. Squids? Spells?

Instead of wondering why they were playing battleships - and muggle game, but a completely different version - Kit just had fun instead.

And prayed that he didn't get eaten.

Livia Bagshot

Poor Livia was the unsuspecting victim this time. Before she knew it, a spell caught her right in the chest. The next thing she knew, Livia toppled off her "ship" and was desperately trying to stay afloat in the lake. It didn't require much effort in the end. Once her panic subsided, she was back to treading water like a pro.

 

She glared across the way at the super attractive but super rude Slytherin who was responsible for her demise. >:c The only real consolation was that he, too, had been bested--and by a first year, at that. Clearly, the boy got what he deserved.

He missed. So had the others, so at least the others were in the same boat.

 

"Um... let's just try again? Yeah... yeah"

So one hit and one miss. Well, once more with feeling. Kat aimed and fired, "Vellicare auris!"

"Flipendo!" He cried out, his wand waving somewhat frantically as he fired another spell off into the crowd. There wasn't that many of them left, but Seamus wanted to be the last one standing! Why? So his robes wouldn't get soaked! He couldn't trot around the castle sopping wet again. The whole vinegar incident had been bad enough for the small Hufflepuff, he couldn't imagine how bad the lake water would smell when it clung to his tiny frame.

Seamus Cassidy

Well, if Celine Dion could see this lake, he was sure she would be serenading the students that decorated the lake. Everyone had a door for themselves and while it was maybe a bit more wet than the boy had anticipated, it was still afloat and that was good enough for him! He would just have to do something about the others, after all, this shy little boy had a chance to win an Oscar! Could he push the other boats into the icebergs? He'd have to find out. "Flipendo!"

Livia Bagshot

Although she had been restored to her proper place, out of the water and on her makeshift boat (read: door), Livia continued to make angry heart eyes at the Mysterious Slytherin. It was only when she remembered that the game was still ongoing that she snapped to attention. Livia decided to forgo any reliance on the squid, pulling out her wand and preparing to join the real battle. The incantation was on the tip of her tongue, and all she needed was a target.

 

She faltered upon spotting the nearby icebergs, ominous chunks of ice that promised a fate worse than the Titanic. Oh, dear. "Glebula!" she called frantically, sending a snowball into the open air.

Doors. Icebergs. Water.

 

Who on earth thought this was a good idea?!

 

"Who sanctioned this madness?!"

 

Whoever it was, Kit wanted to go and give them a high five. Or find a sick bucket.

Rosie Roux

Every night in her dreams, Rosie saw Hufflepuff bonding sessions. And right now she was in the middle of one! Dreams really did come true! Looking out far across the distance, observing the spaces between herself and her competitors, the girl attempted to come up with a plan of action. Settling on her spell, she searched for her target. She had a split second to decide to shoot near or far, but wherever they were, she would do her best. Just like Richard Fowler had taught her.

“Flipendo!” She believed that her spell would go on and hit her opponent.

Maksim Valentin

Somehow Maksim found himself in the water and heard his sister call out something about apologies. "Aye, sure ye're sorry!" Maksim called out with a laugh, spitting water out of his mouth.

Floating around for a while, Maksim was surprised when he saw... were those icebergs?

WHO PUT ICEBERGS IN THE LAKE?

And now instead of boats they had doors? ._______.

"Ah have nae idea whit's even happenin' right now," Maksim said as he shook his head. Clambering onto a floating door, he did his best to try and stand on it so he could get a better hit on someone. "Expelliarmus!"

Uma Tamboli

Uma was lowkey terrified, but she was shaking it off in her usual fashion.

This entire ploy had been an excuse to get more involved in the noble, fabulous house of Hufflepuff. What she hadn't expected, though, was to be in the lake freezing because they were standing on icebergs.

Titanic, much?

"It's been 84 years since I had terrifyingly dangerous fun like this," she smirked, pulling out her wand, given everyone else was already going at it first D<

Yes Titanic was a great move but standing on a door on the lake was not as much fun doing it as watching it. Oh well, that wasn't going to stop Kat from plotting and planning her battle. She didn't know if her heart would go on but she sure planned for her ship to go on! "Pyeretz!

Kimber Yates

Kimber was really confused at what was going on. But somehow he had been drafted into the water and he was trying to make sure that this worked out. So at least he could hopefully survive this? He just aimed his wand and chanted a spell, praying that something happened.
