Final Fantasy Fight Tournament

 Final Fantasy Fight Tournament
Have you ever played Final Fantasy and been in a encounter? Well how would you like to do that in real life? N.A.N. Entertainment will be hosting a live action Final Fantasy Fight Tournament at Kobe Kon.
How do you play FFFT?
A Rock. Paper, Scissors decides who goes first. We need a total of 8 teams of 3 players each. Come up with a cool name for your team and join us on stage to battle it out free style. In the past, we have had some amazing battles take place. Players doing back flips, round houses and air aerobics that will blow your mind. BUT, there is NO PHYSICAL CONTACT, NO LIQUIDS, NO CONFETTI, NO SILLY STRING. You want to create the illusion that you are striking your opponent. And that opponent should dramatically respond to said 'hit'. The whole idea is to entertain the audience and impress the judges.
How are players judged?
All rules that apply to the game apply here as well. 3 hits points ends you and you will 'die' on that spot. Dramatically as possible within reason. There will be a spotter on stage to let you know your hit level.
Each team can have 1 summons per battle. A summons takes off 1 hit point per opponent. A summons can be just about anything that is not illegal or overly perverted. Example: We had a Alucard cosplayer who stood behind stage talking on a mic like you had reached his voice mail. He sounded just like him. He stated he was not available but would be sending his Police Girl. Police Girl came out on stage and took everyone out as Alucard narrated the whole thing behind scene.
All players must attend a 30 min pre meeting to make sure everything goes as planbed and to answer questions.
