Snowcember Snow Fort War

A forum game in the vein of Hooky and other roleplaying games from past events. Fred Rechid came up with the idea for it. The three teams (Band Geeks, Drasticals, and Independent) each had their own fort, and a captain. The original group of captains were Trophy (Band Geeks), Hayden (Drasticals), and Fa (Independent). Whichever side won each challenge got to knock off people from the opposing sides. The last person standing was Cream, who won a point for the Drasticals, 5,000 doubloons, and a Snow Fort Champion badge.
