*applause* Thank you, thank you! Hello! I’m @Jabberwock; he’s @Ice Espeon; and this is Taskmaster; and we … are the Taskmasters! But wait … what does that mean? It means that over the next few months we’ll set a series of taxing tasks to all you excellent people. We’re judging both what you do and how you do it. At the end, one of you will hold a handsome trophy high above your head as the ultimate champion of Taskmaster! Taskmaster is a popular British game show wherein –– traditionally –– five comedians are enlisted to complete a set of tasks, as decreed by the Taskmaster. We’re shaking things up a bit for our PokéBeach variant, though! Players will be given a task every week, which they must complete in the next five days. The two intervening days will be used by us, the Taskmasters, to judge what you did and how you did it. Tasks may seem arbitrary or ridiculous at first glance. Notable tasks from the TV series have included “paint a picture of a horse whilst riding a horse”, “film something that will look impressive in reverse”, and “make this large block of ice disappear”. You may be assured that the tasks we set you will be at least as ridiculous –– though much easier to accomplish over an online forum. For those of you who’ve played in The Challenge before on this site, you’ll find the format of the game to be similar. Unlike in the TV series, we’re opening sign-ups to as many people as want to play! We’re not, however, doing subs. This is not an elimination game, so while it doesn’t require much commitment, make sure you’ll be able to invest half an hour or so on a weekly basis for the next few months. Just give us a post saying that you’re in, along with the name of your favorite Taskmaster, and we’ll put your name right there under “Sign-ups”.
