The Sword Forms game is a game that was played at Anniversary Party 2014.

Concocted by Cassie Dainar, with input by Arie Davion and Vivianna L'antreau, it was created to be either an indoor or an outdoor game to play at any Tower Event. The game was an immediate success as it allowed anyone to play provided they kept to the rules. Absolutely no skill is required, aside a little creativity.

Here are the rules.
  • All Forms must be either a Defensive or Offensive Sword Form. (Too literal will lose you points.)
  • Sword Forms based on the books were given a 3 to 5 second time limit to perform, original/creative forms were given about 5 to 8 seconds.


Round 1

Approach the Judges, giving your best Cat Crosses the Courtyard. Once completed you would be given your Sword Form. You have 3-5 Seconds to think about it and then preform. Round 1 were Forms from the Book.

Round 2

Approach the Judges, giving your best 'Silly Cat Crosses the Courtyard. Once completed you would be given your Sword Form. You have 5-8 Seconds to think about it and then preform. Round 2 were Silly Forms created by the Judges.

Round 3

Approach the Judges, giving your best "Animal" Crosses the Courtyard. Animals were given at random, although usually reflected the first letter of the competitor's name. Once completed you would be given your Sword Form. You have 5-8 Seconds to think about it and then preform. Round 3 were Silly Forms based on themes of both Ajah's and Companies.

Tiebreaker

Tie's were broken with "Sword Forms Against Humanity". Competitors drew a card from the "Cards Against Humanity" deck and were then required to act out their card as a Sword Form. The one that does it best win's the tie.
