Hi, and welcome to the official reboot of the Hunger Games Simulation! Yeah, funny that the guy whose tributes and suggestions created a bit of a stir in the original HGS is making the reboot post, I know. Before we begin, here are the rules. And a link to the HGS wiki as that's where we do the editing.
If you have any additional questions, please contact the thread's moderators, Psychedelicate, Troper No. 9001, Vengeful Bale, and Zanreo, preferably through PMs. They're in charge of keeping the game running smoothly, including making critical decisions in regards to players who begin to show reprehensible behavior.
Thread Rules and Guidelines
In order for this forum game to run as smoothly as possible, all participants are expected to follow the rules and expectations laid out below. These rules are subject to change, so please check them periodically!
Each participant may submit 2-4 tributes, split into two teams of two. The main team are the tributes that are guaranteed to be submitted for the season, unless slots are full or you are disqualified. The reserve team are the tributes to be used as filler if the main tributes havenít already filled up all the slots. If a season requires reserves, every reserve team nominated will be randomized so that everyone has a fair chance at getting their reserves in.
Nominating tributes is simple. Just provide your tributesí names, as well as an accompanying image, preferably in this format:
[[(Image Link) (Tribute Name)]]
It is recommended that you specify each of your tributesí gender, especially if there is a chance that the runner may mistake them for a member of the opposite gender, or they are nonbinary/genderqueer. You may also provide a ďdeath pictureĒ of each of your tributes if you wish. The minimum picture size that the simulator allows is 90x90 pixels, so please keep that in mind.
If you change your tributes after posting, you have to make a new post informing about this.
While we are lenient on what tributes you can nominate (except for controversial figures, as stated in Rule 5), you must state if any of them are underage by stating their age or their estimated age if unknown. Since different countries/states/jurisdictions have different laws on what the age of consent is, we will be going with 18, since the site is based in California. These tributes will be protected and put on the watchlist, and they will be flagged under the following colors:
As a general rule, these tributes are allowed to have Precocious Crushes on the adults as long as the adult(s) doesn't/don't return their feelings. They are also allowed to be shipped only with other tributes within the same flag level. However, some tributes have very unusual cases (e. g. tributes who are Older or Younger Than They Look), so they might be flagged higher or lower on the watchlist. If any of your tributes fall under this, please say so.
The watchlist also applies to group tributes. If there's at least one member of the group who is flagged, then the entire group must be flagged as well. Because the resulting pairings are always disturbing, mixed-age group tributes that contain kids must be black flagged.
This is more of a guideline than a hard rule, but please specify your tribute's gender if it's not immediately obvious what gender they are, particularly with crossdressers and androgynous tributes. Non-binary tributes or those that are genderless or of Ambiguous Gender can be assigned either pronouns due to our sim's limitations (the updated version has them, but we're still waiting for Event Import/Export), but if you headcanon them to be of a specific gender, then please say so in your nomination post.
Tributes must be flagged according to their age at the end of their source material in question, unless you are specifically nominating a younger version of them. If that is the case, please make this clear in your nomination post. However, this rule is exempt for tributes who are better-known as their younger selves, e.g. Homestuck tributes.
Note that flagging rules also applies to things like character figurines, plushies, and similar/other representations of specific characters. Even if they're inanimate objects, they're still representations of the character in question, and will have to be flagged as such.
All players will be required to post flags for a flagged character every time they are nominated, no matter how many times they have been nominated before. This is done to make sure the runner knows that the tributes in question are part of the watchlist, so that there will be no uncomfortable pairings in retrospect.
In addition to the regular flagging system, certain tributes will need or can use additional conditions for who they can and can't be shipped with. Typical examples of these are:
Non-sapient animals: If an animal/non-human(oid) creature tribute is non-sapient (e.g. regular real-life animals), they will have to be flagged for this and can only be shipped with other non-sapient animals.
Related tributes: If two tributes have a family relationship, whether biological or adopted - say, you nominate a pair of siblings - you can add a note to not have them shipped with each other. This also applies for if one person nominates one character and another nominates the other. Note that for siblings, cousins, ect. this is optional, but parent/child tributes will always need to be special case flagged for this.
Elderly tributes: Old tributes should also get a special case flag, letting the runner know to be careful about who to potentially ship them with.
If your tribute doesn't fall under these three cases but still needs to be flagged this way, don't hesitate to ask the mods on how to flag them properly.
Additionally, please note that the image you use for your tribute will represent the incarnation of said tribute, including their age (specifically, how old they are by the end of their source material). For example, if you are nominating Naruto, and his image shows him as his Shippuden self, he must be flagged as yellow because his Shippuden self is a teen.
As stated in Rule 6, it's the runner's responsibility to make sure that none of these tributes get into any disturbing pairings such as pedophilia or extremely Squicky pairings in general. If you're not sure about a pairing during running, don't be afraid to ask.
While you are allowed to swap out any of your watchlisted tributes if running becomes too difficult, please be mindful if there are other watchlisted tributes already nominated. If you feel that your tributes would burden the runner further, consider swapping them out with "safer" ones.
During the intervals between seasons, players can suggest new events to be inputted in the save we use for all seasons. However, players must be very mindful about what events they suggest. Before suggesting an event, consider the following:
When suggesting events to be inputted in the thread, other players are likely to notify you if the event fails to meet any of these criteria; nonetheless, you should double-check and make sure that the event youíre suggesting is good to go. If it needs to be worded a certain way, re-word it.
Additionally, when suggesting events, always make sure you surround them with [=this markup=]; otherwise, terms such as ď(Player1)Ē and ď(him/her3)Ē will show up incorrectly, which can create problems in the way events are coded and create more work for the runner.
You must also follow these guidelines:
In the HGS, we often organize ďthemed seasonsĒ, where everyone is encouraged to nominate tributes according to a specific theme. Although every participant is encouraged to do so, if you are having difficulties with coming up with tributes suiting the theme, or you simply donít want to nominate tributes corresponding to the theme, you are allowed to nominate regular tributes instead. Ideas for possible future themed seasons can be suggested in the thread or, more ideally, on the official Discord server on the appropriate channel.
And that should be that. Here's a save of the simulation, just so you know what to expect.
Now's start the nominations for the first season of the reboot!
Reserve: Team Public Service
Edited by TheGamechanger on Apr 9th 2021 at 8:47:53 AM
Bob Ewell◊ and a pesky housefly◊
Reserves: Truman Burbank◊ and the Tropers◊ Yellow/Orange flag for the Tropers, most of whom are unaware and therefore unconsenting.
Edited by TacoBadger on Sep 2nd 2018 at 12:27:09 PM
Woohoo! Letís rock and roll!
Team Gravitation: Shuichi Shindou and Eiri Yuki. Why am I nominating these guys? Because Shuichi was my very first TVT forum avatar, though Iíve since deleted it.
Hey there, guys! I'm your resident Database Manager, and I'm documenting every tribute who has been submitted here, along with other stats!note Do expect delays, because I'll be handling both the OG and the Reboot.
For my first set of tributes, I'll be nominating Team Simba's Pride: Kiara◊ (death◊) and her husband Kovu◊ (death◊)!
For my reserves, in case we don't have enough players, Team MLP Phoenixes: Peewee◊note he's an adult here and Philomena◊ (death pic for both◊)note Yes, I know this is supposed to apply only to Philomena, but phoenixes die like this, okay?
And let's spice up that save with these events:
Telling Lies? No, Papa!:
Holey moley, that's a lot of holeys!:
And the Rest:

Team RORO Must Die Twice:
Main: RO635◊ (Death Pic◊) & ROnergate◊ (Death Pic◊)

Team PLS nerf:Stray Cat◊ (death pic◊)
Cucco◊ (death pic◊)
It's been a while since I posted in a HGS thread. Might as well start again now.
Let's start with Team Russian Efficiency: Sergei Dragunov◊ (Just Dragunov is fine) and AK-12◊.
My reserves would be Team Lollipop Munchers: MP7◊ (technically under 10 years old, but looks and acts like she's in late teens) and AA-12◊ (same case as MP7).
Del Boy Trotter◊ and Rodney Trotter◊ (Half-Brothers so it's probably best to not ship them together).
Team Four Star Finally Updated Team: Cell (ded◊; it's Cell, he's okay) and SSJ2 Kid Gohan (ded◊; he's around ten or so at this point)
Reserve: Team Mountain Climbers: Madeline (left ambiguous but dev himself headcanons her to be in 20s) and Getting Over It guy (clearly an adult)
Alright, for my first tributes... let's go with my own characters Nintendo◊
Reserves: Reggiegiygas◊ and Segata Sanshiro◊
And another event to go with my earlier "is this a pigeon" event:
Upon seeing a pigeon, (Player1) asks "Is this a butterfly?"
Edited by Zanreo on Sep 2nd 2018 at 7:42:35 PM
I used to do this a while ago, didn't I...?
Team Generic Anime Swordsmen That Didn't Actually Come From Animes (I suck at team titles):
Youmu Konpaku◊, the Half-Ghost Gardener from Touhou, girl and of adult age; who will enter the fray alongisde Assassin◊, from Fate/Stay Night, who's male and also an adult.
This should be good, yes?.
Excuse me while I kiss the sky look for tributes. Keep this post counted, okay?
EDIT: Here they comes! Enter King Sombra◊ (death◊) and Captain Edward John Smith◊ (nickname: Captain Smith, death◊)Database notes Unlike the Captain Smith I nominated in OG Season 219, which was the Real Life captain of the RMS Titanic, this Captain Smith was the one played by Bernard Hill in the 1997 movie.
Tested it in the sim, and it worked just fine. You should try VPN, perhaps.
Edited by dave_the_assassin on Sep 2nd 2018 at 7:44:50 PM
I think the death Pic of Captain Smith is broken, at least it is for me...
Dang, I didn't realize this already started, well, here's my tributes
Team Reboot Villain Decay:
Both are male and adults.
Edited by VengefulBale on Sep 2nd 2018 at 10:41:52 AM
Here we go, boys!
Mr. Game and Watch◊ (gender: male) (age: as far as I know this is unspecified, but he was created in the 80s so he's fine)
Pac-Man◊ (gender: male) (age: as far as I know this is also unspecified, but he was also created in the 80s so he's also fine)
Team Retr-other (reserve)
R.O.B.◊ (nickname: ROB) (gender: robot (but they are named ROB so leaning more towards male)) (age: robot)
Duck Hunt Duo◊ (gender: dog male, duck presumably female?) (age: the average lifespan of a dog is 10-13 years and the duck hunt dog looks rather mature)
Edited by Penroses on Sep 5th 2018 at 7:57:17 PM
The HGS rides again.
Main: Nuru◊ and A Grineer Manic
Events: After killing (him/her2), (Player1) decides to violently gib (Player2)'s corpse with a crowbar. (Fatal to P2)
Before fighting (Player1), (Player2) says "Yes, that's enigmatic, are you he? You're a pimp!", confusing (him/her1).
Edited by Eredars on Sep 2nd 2018 at 6:25:20 AM
Yayyy I can finally nominate toads again
here's Earth Star◊ and Beauty Stem◊, the icons. also its kinda vague in the show since toad ages are a bit wonky and inconsistent but the way they're written seems to say they're both about in their mid teens.
Also, are the events being reset from the last version? Or are they still there? I don't think I ever caught the answer sorry lmao
The custom events are still there
Alright, let's do this!
Team Jockeys: Tsugumi Umatachi◊ (Age unknown, but I'm pretty sure they're an adult, they're also a case of Ambiguous Gender but my headcanon is male) and Johnny Joestar◊ (Wiki says he's 19)
Nominating some reboot-themed tributes who never had the best of luck in OG HGS. It's also Ben 10, an HGS classic:
Xingo◊ (male) and Queen Bee◊ (female)
No flags apply! Let's hope that they or Hex will prove that the Curse has been exorcised!.. Hopefully.
Also, my first event submissions of the reboot:
(Player1) and (Player2) have to refund all the tickets to their fight because of it ending in a draw. (non-fatal)
After (Player1) catches (Player2) red-handed, (Player2) decides that (he/she2) needs a distraction. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Conway Twitty! (non-fatal)
(Player1) panics when (Player2) tells (him/her1) that (he/she2) doesn't feel so good, but it turns out that (Player2) just has a stomachache. (non-fatal)
(Player1) puts on a performance, to which (Player2) is (his/her1) only audience. (non-fatal)
(Player1) makes a fail compilation out of (Player2)'s misfortunes. (non-fatal)
When (Player1) shows up to the feast, (Player2) asks if (he/she1) would like the whoopee cushion or non-whoopee cushion section. (non-fatal, FEAST ONLY)
(Player1) picks up some salt, insisting to (Player2) that it's sodium chloride. (non-fatal, regular AND feast event)
(Player1) starts a pie fight with (Player2) and (Player3). (Player4) scolds them for the waste of pie. (non-fatal, regular AND feast event)
(Player1) puts a tack in (Player2)'s chair. (non-fatal, regular AND Feast event)
