PP Carrier News: This aircraft carrier is now open for paintball games!
History and Origins:
As the aircraft carriers of the Outlands became obsolete (replaced by bigger, better models, such as the super-carriers and submarine-carrier hybrids) or were lost at sea (such as during the World Wars, and later during the Rapture Campaign), Inisfree used its teleporting technology (stemming from the findings of the Philadelphia Experiment) to bring these discontinued behemoths and leviathans to its main lake. Today, one of these aircraft carriers, weighing in at over 90,000 tons, and standing 25 stories tall from keel to mast, is anchored a few dozen feet from the shore and closest pier of Inisfree's longest beach.
The two separate sports of Paintball and Le Parkour were combined one day by the Governor when he was exploring some of the Outlands back in 2008. The concept was in keeping with one of the foundational and key Inisfreean principles; maintain peak physical fitness, including agility, dexterity, sensory perception, pain tolerance, graceful fluidity of motion, and rugged doggedness when carrying the weight of Outlander armor (such as a combat-loaded flak-jacket).
Players must move as Free-runners do; not walking or jogging along flat pathways, but using the Le Parkour techniques to flip, roll, dive, swing, and scale vertical surfaces whether they have ladders and stairs or not. Leaping up to kick off walls, executing the Kong move, and other such methods must be employed throughout gameplay while wearing the armored jacket and carrying one paintball gun.
As players become struck by paintballs, judges determine the severity of their pretend wounds; were they grazed, winded, crippled, mutilated, or killed? Depending on where the paintballs from enemy players strike them, and how many times, players will have successive restrictions of movement placed upon them as rules for ongoing interaction; they may have to start limping, only climb with one hand and arm, and so on.
Advanced Terrain and Marksmanship Calculations:
Being on an aircraft carrier, players must also deal with the subtle rocking motions caused by maneuvering on a floating ship. Though there are no highly pitching (rough) seas in this area, this still makes accurately engaging targets a challenge -especially with the non-aerodynamic paintballs, and even more so when firing from the helicopters and other aircraft which may be utilized by the teams in this game on this vessel.
