Welcome Back Detectives!
Winter and I are exicted to be back and hope that the Game we've got planned is worth the
extermely long wait we forced you to live the last year.
Before we get on with the Game there are just some reminders of facts shared before and some new information about the Game to come that we need to go over.
Rules and FAQ
Welcome to land_deduction
What is a land-comm?
A land comm is an interactive challenge community in which players are divided into teams and compete for points. Challenges can be anything from luck to graphics to writing to puzzles to logic-based challenges. At the end of the each round the team with the most points wins.
What fandoms are included here?
This landcomm centers around the two fandoms that have gotten a new generation of fans into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective, Sherlock Holmes, in two different ways. BBC Sherlock and CBS Elementary.
So how do I play?
Apply to join a team. There are two teams - Team 221B and Team Brownstone. Once you have your team you can start to participate in challenges which will have rules in the challenge post.
What do I do if I have questions?
Each challenge post will have a thread for questions, and there is also the page-a-mod post, where you can take general community questions and queries. You may also PM myself or sumer_starlight
How often do I need to participate?
We ask that you participate at least once every three weeks minimum (we’d love it if you can participate as much as you can but we understand real life can sometimes get in the way of fun fandom stuff!) We’re also happy to try and help out during busy periods so if you need to go on a hiatus then please let us know at the Page-A-Mod post where comments are screened.
Other things to note:
The main rule of this land comm is just to have fun! Hopefully it’s a safe place to try new things and make friends. Please don’t bash other players or actors etc!
If you wish to change teams please PM myself and we’ll see what we can do (no guarantees). Please note that any points you have earned prior to this will stay with the team you were on.
*Some of these rules and layout came from the wonderful avland
Game 3 will run from July 18th to November 18th
At the moment we will be staying with the same 2 team setup from the previous games, 221B vs. Brownstone. If the numbers increse early in the game we do have a 3rd team comm avaiable that we will concider activating (or save for a later game.)
This Game will include a few Team Cases so we will be asking for team Captains. To be sure that we have everyone where they would like to be we will be asking all of you to reapply for a team, simply select the same team if you wish to stay, we're not asking people to move this is just so that we can stay organized to have the Game run smoothly. If you would be interested in stepping up for captian, we're hoping to get 2 perteam, please let us know when you reapply.
We will be hosting one pre-game case, unlike our previous pre-game cases though, this one will run over the course of the Game.
This land comm was originally created to support the fandoms of Elementary and Sherlock BBC, with this Game we hope to add in some of the other Sherlock variations out there, so be pre-pared for the fun to increase. We do understand that not everyone out there will know all of the variations we may use, the cases involing these will be designed so that you can still play with little to no knowledge of that fandom.
As always if you have questions please feel free to DM myself or last_winterrose or you can reach us through the Page-A-Mod Post.
Now that the boring stuff has been sorted ...
Let the Game Begin!
