Turns out, instead of chum, Sparks has been pumping maple syrup into the ocean surrounding Sealab, instead chosing to sell the chum on the black hors d'eorve market. Some of it was actually repurchased by Sealab for the Shark Party, and you may actually be eating it on a cracker right now.
But the maple syrup has attracted an odd sort of barnacle, which has popped up in great numbers around sealab and is threatening to cut off the intakes of all pods.
The Sealab crew will have to go out and physically scrape off the barnacles, or the pods will shut down, eventually depriving everyond of oxygen.
Here's how combat works (it will take place in this thread).
The score of your attack (damage if you will) is 1 per level.
serfs do 1 point of damage
Peasants do 2
Commoners do 3
Yeomans do 4
Gentry do 5
Defense works the same.
All "kudos" to attack posts get +1 to the attack per kudo.
All "kudos" to defense posts get +1 to the kudo'd Knight's defense per kudo.
Tags can also help or hinder, depending on what they say. Tags can actually lower your attack and/or defense as well as increase it.
You only get one attack, then the opponent gets to respond. Then you can attack again.
Some Knights will have special weapons, or other abilities, that will add to their attacks or defense, or give them special attacks.
When a knight takes "damage" it comes off their xp. (yeah you can actually lose xp as well as gain it). When hp/xp reaches "0" the Knight is out of that particular combat and must start over at "serf". But a Knight may withdraw from combat at any time (unless prevented somehow by a circumstances)
This specific fight:
Barnacles: Attack = 0, Defense = 0
Special ability = buildup; many barnacles accumulating on a surface add to their hp. So if there are 100 barnacles, you have to do 100 points of damage to dislodge them.
They may also attach to your wetsuit, possibly damaging it or slowing you down. If your suit gets damaged, you start to lose hp.
Pod 1: 100
Pod 2: 50
Pod 3: 25
Pod 4: 25
Pod 5: 25
Pod 6: 50
Pod 7: 100
At "100" pods will begin their shutting down process.
Knights must declare which pod's barnacles they are attacking before their attack.
If all the barnacles are cleared, xp will be awarded accordingly to level of participation in the combat.
Feel free to ask any questions you might have.

Stormy heads out to attack the barnacles on Pod 1. For this sample combat post, he is considered level 13.
basically to attack, you just post your attack.
"I attack the barnacles on Pod 1"
01-17-2012 11:46 PM
the barnacles have no response.
so - there are 100 hp worth of barnacles on Pod 1
Stormy does 13 (his level) + 5 for a special weapon he has, let's say his post gets a few kudos (3) so that's +3, the tags are split, one says he sucks, so that's a -1, one says "go stormy!" so that's a +1.
His total attack then is 21. The barnacles' defense is "0".
So there are now only 79 hps worth of barnacles on Pod 1.
The barnacles then get a chance to "attack". Their response is to spread.
So they're back up to 80 hps worth of barnacles on Pod 1.
Stormy may now post his next action, since the response has been posted.

Pod 5 has 25 barnacles, you do 5 damage as a Gentry +3 tags = 8 damage
leaving 17 barnacles on Pod 5
Barnacles attack = spread
now there are 18 barnacles on Pod 5

any observer can tag or kudo. This particular combat is an easy one, because I wanted to do something easy as an intro to it,
but some of them will be really hard, and obviously those will yield the big points for the higher levels.
01-19-2012 09:01 AM
Your attack is 5 +5 tags, +6 bonus points for entertainingness of tags = 16.
18 Barnacles remaining, that takes them down to 2.
Their action is to spread.
So now there's 3 left on your pod.
which - how embarrassing for you that you have barnacles on your pod.

I guess cleaning up barnacles is below everyone else. I'll take the easy xp to the bank, thank you very much.
Let's go with a dirtier job, attacking the barnacles on Pod 1.
Something tells me these barnacles are gonna hurt

you do Squire damage now (6) +5 tags, +10 tag arbitrary tag bonus
for a total of 21.
the Barnacles have no defense. So they are reduced to 79 from 100.
The barnacles use "spread" and increase their number back up to 86..
01-20-2012 10:38 AM
as a yeoman you do 4 damage, +3 kudos = 7
you reduce the number of barnacles on Pod 7 from 100 to 93
the barnacles on Pod 7 then spread, upping their number to 102.
Pod 7 begins to shut down. Unless knights can reduce the number of barnacles below 100, the pod will be lost.
01-20-2012 10:40 AM
not at the moment, well actually Squires get something. So will drop that on Noobull here shortly.
but yeah, knights get different things as they progress.
01-20-2012 10:43 AM
your attack is 2. +2 for kudos, +3 for tags, +2 tag bonus
9 points total.
the barnacles on Pod 6 are reduced from 50 to 41.
the barnacles spread on their attack increasing their number from 41 to 45.
01-20-2012 10:47 AM
Basically you just attack the barnacles.
you do some damage based on your level. Then you get bonus to that for all the kudos and tags your post collects.
Your damage knocks the barnacles away, but on their attack, they can spread (it's really all they got).
basically if a pod gets more than 100 barnacles on it, it begins to shut down.
The object is to clear the barnacles before any of the pods shut down.
01-20-2012 10:50 AM
speaking of spreading:
pod 1 = 86 barnacles
pod 2 = 55 barnacles
pod 3 = 3 barnacles
pod 4 = 27 barnacles
pod 5 = 27 barnacles
pod 6 = 45 barnacles
pod 7 = 102 barnacles (shutting down unless it can be saved)

2 attack +4 kudos +3 tags +2 tag bonus
Pod 6 barnacles reduced from 45 to 34
Pod 6 barnacles spread on their attack back up to 37.
