Th3Hatt3rTh3Hatt3r Before the Echo Easy Any% 2:15:00 PC USA Link Before The Echo (formerly called Sequence) is an indie rpg with rhythm game mechanics. Completing the game requires beating the last boss on the final floor after 7 floors each guarded by a boss, plus farming monsters for materials. Using the materials from each floor's set of 3 monsters you need to create a key to face the floor boss. The main time loss of the game would be collecting and synthesizing materials that cost exp, which is made up by farming. Smosism 3 play through 1 song on spasmodic of the viewer choice in bonus. Easy 100% (not recommended). I'm available anytime for this particular marathon. just need a heads ups at least 2 weeks in advances with work and school schedule. I live in Los Angeles, CA PST so if it during a middle of the night I would want to tell my work ahead of the day before and during the run taking place.

RazorflameRazorflame Dungeon Hearts 1:30:00 PC USA Link It is a very obscure game that not a lot of people know about, and by showcasing it at RARFF2019, I hope to raise awareness of the game. The game has heavy puzzle and action elements with some RPG elements thrown in. After every level, you can level your heroes up to help them deal more damage and do other things, such as get more health and more abilities to use on future levels. Another reason why I want to show this game is because it is a very difficult and entertaining run, which I believe will be a good run to showcase at RARFF2019! The basis of the game is matching three like colored dots and then clicking on them to create "strikers". By using these "strikers", you can then attack your opponent, clear out hazards such as opponent's "strikers" and hexes, which have devastating effects that harm your heroes, destroy grey dots and squares (which block the path to move the dots around), and more. By lining up more than one color "striker", you can then combo attack with more than one hero, dealing more damage to your opponents. The goal of the game is to deplete all of your opponents health through 24 battles in order to beat the game as quickly as possible. The Hard difficulty is extremely difficult and is not marathon safe in the slightest. If you get the wrong enemy or you get bad RNG, the run can be over very quickly. Enough time for an extra run will be included in the estimate. Thank you for the consideration! 5 Endless Mode Showcase (10-15 minutes) Every day, Noon to Midnight.
RazorflameRazorflame Pokémon Puzzle Challenge Challenge - Intense 0:40:00 GBC USA Link This game is a solid gem of a game in the Puzzle League/Panel de Pon franchise that really incorporates lots of high level technical play, along with a wealth of knowledge about game mechanics and extremely brutal computer challengers that all make for a very exciting, edge-of-your-seat style of game that will leave everyone looking for more afterwords. This category is the shorter category of the two for this game that I am submitting, and features just the hardest difficulty, which shows the harder aspect of the game, and the higher level play, but leaves out the entire Challenge Mode experience. This game has a LOT of RNG, but runs are able to be completed fairly often. 5 Upgrade: Change category from Intense to Easy - Intense (+40m to estimate). https://www.twitch.tv/videos/410191957 Every day, Noon to Midnight
RazorflameRazorflame Hexcells Infinite 10 Levels No Reset 1:00:00 PC USA Link This puzzle game is a gem of a game, and at high levels of play, is absolutely mesmerizing to watch. This category requires you to complete 10 levels in a row that are generated by the game, however, if you make 2 or more mistakes on a single level, you lose the run. It took me about 5 attempts to get my first completed run of this category. I will be including extra time in the estimate for one failed run. 5 15 Level Reset (1:20 estimate) 20 Level Reset (1:40 estimate) Every day, noon to midnight.

KrayzarKrayzar Castle of the Winds Part 1 + Part 2 1:00:00 PC USA Link Here's another VOD with full commentary as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDqIxLeh8c8 This would be a race between SilentSigil, Krayzar and perhaps any others we can convince. Castle of the Winds is probably one of the most famous early Windows 3.1 Rougelikes. At it's core, Castle of the Winds is a game about retrieving your long lost Undead Granfather's Magic Helmet from demons and his greatest nemesis, 25+ flights of stairs. The fun part of the run is the bugs. Runs of Part 1 + 2 consist of a high amount of RNG, which is attempted to be mitigated by using a Health underflow bug, and Map Level scroll save scumming. For a Part 1 + 2 run, almost every known bug is utilized, including: * Heath Underflow * Phase Door Shopping (Steal items from shops with a spell by getting lucky and teleporting into them) * Item Stacking (Equipping multiple items in the same body slot) Even with the Health bug, the success of a run is highly item and stats dependent. Despite 30k health, you can still die due to stat damage from undead monsters, and the shear amount of damage end game monsters such as ancient dragons deal. And While using a Map Level scroll to look at the dungeon layout speeds things up a bit in Part 2, the later parts of the Part 2 dungeon are very unforgiving when it comes to room placement. A run can be ruined very easily, simply by a string of bad map generation in Part 2. On top of all of this, a total of 40 dungeon levels must be traversed, and a third must be done entirely unaided by Map Level scrolls. Even beyond these concerns, if you don't have enough damage or the right mix of Mana and spells, it may be impossible to kill the end Boss Surtur. If the shops in Part 2 don't contain good items, or you can't get the RNG of the Phase Door teleports to cooperate in a timely manner, you'll be forced to waste tons of time waiting around for the items you need. Otherwise, you'll be too weak to complete the game. Oh, did I mention that a lot of these bugs utilized can crash the game? Needless to say we save often. SilentSigil 2 Maybe choice of Icon for each runner? The standard Choices are Male and Female, but I can easily make a few more custom ones, like Cat, or Dog, or Mario Orb. =P Any time.

ZetnixZetnix Into The Breach All Squads% 2:50:00 PC EUR Link It is a very RNG and Roguelike game with elements of chess in it. This category shows off every squad in the game and it's long! 15 For bidwars/donations I can name a pilot for the highest donator! I'd prefer for my run to be commented by someone else, because I might not be able to speak. The future can only show! I think I can be avaiable on friday (20th) and saturday (21st) nights (midnight to 3-4 am CET). Not much beside it.
SonatroSonatro Wayward Souls 3 Area any% (Mobile) 1:00:00 PC USA Link Cause it's an amazing Roguelike and I would love for people to see something they could otherwise miss out on. It's fun, tense, and overall, an entertaining watch, in part thanks to my panicked gibberish. 8 I mention this in the video, but there's two ideas I had for bid wars. One is picking which hat to wear. There's a number of silly hats to wear, but I think I wanna make it between the Hollow Rock, the Antlers, and No Hat. The other possible bid war is between which character I would play in the mines. I can consistently beat the Mines with both characters, so that won't be an issue. Will be available at any time during the marathon.
WRP_BeaterWRP_Beater Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven Any% OHKO 4:30:00 PC Link Mafia is generally a marathon-safe game, in that the RNG is mostly controllable and no-reset runs will rarely be more than 15 minutes off PB (for a 3 hour run). However, just like people do in the GTA community, we can run OHKO (one-hit knockout), where we are constantly at 1hp and will die in 1 hit from anything. Since the enemies' aim is completely RNG-based, this makes the run a roll of dice every time an enemy shoots at us, and we have strats for some shootouts that are wildly different from any%. Expect a run at least 4 hours long, which could probably go up to 4 and a half at the longest. 3 • Kill Salieri's henchmen (+2 minutes) • Profile name (max 10 characters) anytime on or after Friday evening (Eastern US time)
EliesonElieson Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals The Ancient Cave 2:00:00 SNES USA Link Lufia II's Ancient Cave is a bonus mode in the game specifically designed for running this 100 floor roguelike dungeon. It's a standard at RPG Limit Break in recent years, and is fun to watch in both solo-run and full on race settings between 2, 3 or even 4 people at a time. The game can always throw a curveball at you and the end goal is about making it to the end of the cave without dying, and also, beating the final boss, which requires luck in finding the right gear on the way, with no way of going back. It's a roguelike runner's dream, and it's licensed by Nintendo! AC Race (Potential: three or four 3-way races) 0 Name the Hero: Limit 5 text characters [A-Z, a-z, 0-9, !, ? and " " (spaces)] Name the Capsule Monster: Limit 5 text characters [A-Z, a-z, 0-9, !, ? and " " (spaces)] Pick the Capsule Monster (Rolling Switch during the run): Options are Blaze, Flash, Darbi, Jelze, Gusto, Sully, or Zeppy Pick the 4th Party Member: Standard party is Maxim/Dekar/Artea. 4th Options are Guy, Lexis, Selan, or Tia *None of these result in time changes for the estimate* For Friday the 20th, 7pm EST is the earliest I can participate. I can be available any time after 7pm for the remainder of the event.

PiccadillyBluePiccadillyBlue Magic 2015 Garruk's Revenge (Default Deck) 0:35:00 PC USA Link This is probably the "safest" category this game provides, and I'm still submitting way above my PB because of the heavy RNG nature of Magic the Gathering. Also, it's Magic. You guys know what this game is about. 0 Saturday and Sunday, preferably after 5PM Pacific time.
mohocmohoc Mario Party 8 Star Battle Arena 1:45:00 Wii EUR Link This run has so much RNG in it that you are never guaranteed to win a map until your very last move. The dice rolls are RNG, the items you get are RNG, even the layout of the 3rd map (King Boo's level) is different every time. 0 Everyday 8am-2pm EDT
mohocmohoc Super Paper Mario Flipside Pit of 100 Trials 1:50:00 Wii EUR Link The location of the door and the enemy that has the key is RNG in every room. Item drops are also random, which could lead to interesting backup strategies. Finally there is no way to save while in the Flipside Pit: one death and the run is over. 0 Everyday 8am-2pm EDT
Carter44Carter44 NES Zapper Race Zapper Marathon 0:25:00 NES USA Link All of the zapper games we will be running are very RNG heavy which makes it exciting to watch Raeanus and maybe Oldschoolmcfly 5 Evenings and early night. Our availability has not been determined yet
dragonc0dragonc0 Cave Noire All Quests 1-6 1:15:00 GBC JPN Link This is one of the very few cave crawlers that are available on the gameboy. There are 4 different goalsets with increasing difficulty as you complete each quest. No progress carries over to the next adventure which means each quest stands alone. With almost instant movement you have no time to spare and one misstep can cause a restart of the current quest, making it a dense which keeps you on the edge of your seat 5 You can choose between a boy and a girl at the start of the game. Sat 21-9: 4 AM - 1:30 PM ; 6 PM- 8 PM EDT Sun 22-9: 4 AM - 1:30 PM EDT Mon 23-9: 2 PM - 5 PM EDT (Upper time limits are the latest of the range I would want to start the run)
R30hedronR30hedron Dead Cells Any% Warpless 0:24:00 PC Link Dead Cells is a fast paced Roguelike with combat inspired by Castlevania where the protagonist is a beheaded prisoner with an attitude problem. The goal of the Any% HotK category is simple, defeat the Hand of the King as quickly as possible. RNG is comparatively light, with no-reset runs being around 15-20 min. But the fastest runs require good platforming skills, maintaining the momentum boost from the Velocity mutation, and good level generation luck. 1 A bidwar between different builds! Dead Cells has three main stats, Brutality, Tactics, and Survival, and although Survival is currently the fastest, the audience could suggest one of the three to base it on. Preferably Friday or Saturday from 10AM-10PM Pacific. Can do other times if needed.
R30hedronR30hedron Dead Cells Fresh File 1:15:00 PC Link What is the difference between a Fresh File run and an Any% run of Dead Cells? The goal remains the same, defeat the Hand of the King, but Fresh File requires you to do so with none of the fancy equipment or skills you may have unlocked through the progression of playing on the same save file over multiple runs. Starting from scratch is a _much_ tougher category, with a less room for error. Not only does it require better play because of lower damage and lower health, but to do so quickly and consistently requires finding loot only obtained through perfect play at a few key points (the first level, the first boss, and any cursed chests). That loot is added onto the RNG already present with the level generation to make a challenging speedrun. The estimate includes time for 2 resets, and if absolutely needed, we can use a backup save file to retry the first boss over if I fail to get a flawless fight (to get the legendary piece of equipment). 0 Preferably Friday or Saturday from 10AM-10PM Pacific. Can do other times if needed.
MixMastaPJMixMastaPJ Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off Road 0:20:00 NES USA Link Every item drop is based on RNG, the goal is to get to 99 nitros and maximum stats on the truck, which are only accomplished via item/money drops and decent finishes. Very high variance. 0 After 4pm EST on 9/20/19 until Midnight
MixMastaPJMixMastaPJ Bases Loaded II: Second Season Win a Game 0:20:00 NES USA Link The variance regarding the opposing team hitting the ball is completely random. There is a very real danger that the run changes category from Win a Game% to Lose a Game% 0 Bid for what team I play as: New York Boston Jersey Philly Miami D.C. L.A. Kansas Omaha Texas Hawaii Utah 4pm-Midnight EST 9/20/19
