    Pictured here with a former manager.

    Formerly a real Adonis of wrestling, Hed's impressive physique has faded, and his babyface good looks have been worn away by the cruel passage of time.
    Always wears unfortunately small trunks as well as overly large knee and elbow pads, along with two clunky knee braces. Has been dying his hair blonde for at least twenty years.

    Finisher: The Head Turner (Cravate)

    Entrance: Holst, The Planets, Jupiter
    Always enters wearing a luxurious fur coat, accompanied by several young ladies.

    I think I made old Ric Flair to go along with the young, in his prime version.

    He basically used to have a gorgeous ladykiller gimmick...and then he kept wrestling for another decade or two. Now he just tells stories to all the boys backstage, gets by with the crowd on past glories, and works really stiff to make up for his other shortcomings in the ring, while making everyone else go easy on him due to his many lingering injuries.

    Oh right, I should probably illuminate what Skull's like not in front of the crowds.

    Dr. Skull AKA Dr. Morton Wright

    ***

    A man of impressive stature, Morton Wright signed onto TCW at first as Atlas "The Man Who Holds Up The World". That gimmick ended miserably after he ended dropping "The World" on former champ Bounding Bobby Rogers. (Now known as Wheelchair Bobby in the Tri-County Area) Tex Scrapple took pity on the big man (or at least thought he could guilt him into some further work) and repackaged him as Dr. Skull, the Surgeon of Slaughter, much to the apathetic joy of the audience. Mort feels shame over his previous actions and so sticks closely to kayfabe during all his public appearances, lest he be remembered for that terrible accident. Back in the lockers, he tends to side with management on most things, but maintains cordial relations with most of the locker room.

    While he is developing a prodigious appetite for alcohol, he somehow completed a correspondence course and has gotten his actual MD. He uses his dubious medical expertise as TCW's (only) resident medical staff. When asked why, the answer's simple.

    "I get 2 paychecks" Truly one of the hardest working men in the TCW.

    @Nirya your sheet is a bit messed up. I found that you have to hit the little selection bars, then hit the selection to finalize it. You have Anti-Hero selected, -2 in all stats, max injuries, etc.

    Also this is what I immediately thought of when I saw that name/character.

    Let's go into some character creation!

    Once you have your Gimmick selected, you can start filling out their name and general look, fleshing out the character's gimmick a bit further. Your gimmick sheet will also have prompts for your Entrance music and where you Hail From, choose one of each. Then, finally, you'll choose your character's ROLE, whether you're a Babyface, or a heel.

    Then head to the section on your character sheet marked STATS--it will have starting values for your Look, Power, Real, and Work stats, as well as a bonus you can add to certain abilities.

    Next you'll note any moves you have available, and choose from any you're asked to choose from.

    Finally, you'll note your starting Audience on your Gimmick sheet, and note your starting Momentum based on that.

    Here's an example, if you want to see how the process works in action:
    I'm making The Boss, Tex Scrapple, using The Boss from the Season 2 Gimmicks. First, I flesh out his name and look--I'm thinking he looks a lot like Kurt Russell in Used Cars. For "Hails From," I'm gonna go with ELSEWHERE: THE HEART OF RUNNELS COUNTY. His entrance is "Upbeat and Fun," I'm thinking like a parade theme. As for his role, I think he's a Face. He's too carny to be booed.

    Tex starts with Look +2, Power -1, Real 0, Work -2, and can add +1 to Look or Real. I'm gonna add +1 to Look. Being the shoot boss means I'll probably be cutting a lot of Promos.

    Tex begins with the MAKE A MATCH move, which is already checked on his sheet, and I choose two more. I'm going to go with I Sign The Checks, and Raised in the Business. That way, my Real goes up to +1--which fits in with my shoot ownership of TCW--and I get some added backstage influence.

    He starts with an Audience and Momentum of +1.

    When you're done with all of that, post it to the thread in the following format (if you haven't posted it to the thread already):

    Name:
    Gimmick:
    Look:
    Hails From:
    Entrance:
    Role:

    Look:
    Power:
    Real:
    Work:

    Audience:
    Momentum:
    Injury: 0

    (If it'd help you to write out your moves as well, go ahead--but I don't need them in the thread if you've got them marked on your end)

    Once everyone has that done that, we'll move into some background questions and figure out who's got Heat with whom.

    I think this .docx version might work better? I did it with a free PDF editor since I don't actually have a way to edit them and PDF Viewer wouldn't let me save any changes to it.

    And yeah, that's part of the reference. The other part is that the name is a homage to the original Golden Greek wrestler, John Tolos, who my character is totally not related to but is more than willing to rip off his name for credibility.

    Name: Dr. Skull
    Gimmick: The Monster
    Look: Lab coat, scrubs, prop stethoscope, and a bad halloween skeleton mask.
    Hails From: Hell, Michigan
    Entrance: Some Recording of Tazz' theme
    Role: Heel

    Look: 0
    Power: +2
    Real: -2
    Work: 0

    Audience: +1
    Momentum: +1
    Injury: 0

    Just to keep my cross referencing to a minimum, I took Would You Look at the Size? to bump up my Power to +2, and Intimidating. Meaning, when I'm not in the ring, I can substitute Power for Look (Handy for backstage interviews and the like)

    I'll also condense Doc's backstory here as well in the spoiler.

    NOTE: At the time of writing this, I'm still working on a name and look. Just wanted to get something up this morning for people to see, I'll edit in the rest or repost it.

    Name: "The Conquering Hero" Joe Destiny
    Gimmick: The Indie Darling
    Look: Surprisingly pale skin, for a guy that used to do a lot of outdoor shows for promotions around the country. Short dark blond hair, a Daniel Bryan-style beard of the same color. Gold trunks, black zip-up boots with gold zippers that say "DESTINY" in white on each side.
    Hails From: Right Here In (local town name)
    Entrance: Comes out to the ramp in ring gear carrying a black banner behind him like a cape reading "THE CONQUERING HERO" in white, to the tune of a kinda crappy cover of "The Boys Are Back In Town" his friends did (gotta avoid paying those royalties somehow)
    Role: Babyface

    Look: 0
    Power: -2
    Real: -1
    Work: +2

    Audience: +1
    Momentum: +1

    Joe Destiny didn't want to come back here. Joe Destiny wasn't supposed to come back here.
    He was SOMEONE out there, you know? He paid his dues here in TCW for a year, of course, but got on the road and never looked back. Life was good out on the East coast, internet fans liked him well-enough (at least, no one crapped on him on podcasts that he knew of), made enough money to get an RV instead of taking the bus, had some great times at 'Mania-weekend shows. So what if he wasn't always top of the card? People knew his name! He actually got paid!
    But then Europe happened. He fucked up on remembering his passport, ok yeah, but who hasn't gotten drunk on a car trip with 4 other guys to the airport and forgotten their paperwork? He missed the first three shows in the UK he was booked for, but he was gonna make it up to them! And that fuckup at the Germany show wasn't his fault, that guy didn't know how to take a ladder bump! After that, the Japan offer got shelved, bookings across the pond dried up, and Joe used up most of the rest of his cash getting back to the States.
    So, what other options did he have? Joe packed up the RV, drove it back here, where he knows he can get work. They'll love him here, the local boy who made good, no one here would even know about all the fuckups, right? Hell, no one here has even heard of Meltzer! Joe Destiny will just be here long enough to make some cash again, and then get back on the road. After all, a tryout in Orlando isn't gonna pay for itself...

    El Corrido
    Gimmick: Luchador
    Hailing from: Guadalajara, Mexico
    Entrance Music: A mariachi cover of Rancid's Corazon de Oro recorded by El Corrido.
    Look: When El Corrido first appears he wears traditional a mariachi hat, jacket, and pants. Under the hat is a black half mask (like the Matadores). Once in the ring he removes the jacket, revealing a bare chest. Despite looking authentic, his mariachi pants are tear away; which he pulls off while gyrating his hips in the center of the ring. Beneath the tear away pants are black tights with printing down the legs to match the elaborate silver designs of his mariachi pants.
    Role:Tecnico

    Stats
    Look: 1
    Power: -2
    Real: 0
    Work: 1

    Audience: 1
    Momentum:
    Injury: 0

    Finisher: Crescendo. A springboard moonsault double knee drop.

    Tecnico: When you demonstrate technical prowess in the ring or make a big deal about respect, spend 2 Momentum and pick 1: gain +1 Heat with your opponent, an ally comes to your aid, win the match (regardless of booking).
    Exotico: A provocative look that stands out. +1 Look
    Tradiconial: You refuse to be seen without your mask. Whenever your mask is at risk of being removed, roll
    +Work if it’s your choice, or roll +Real if it’s someone else’s. Gain +1 Heat with your foe, and on a 10+ pick 2, on a
    7-9 pick 1: you book the next step of the feud, you cover your face in time, you take theirs as part of the scuffle.
    On a Botch, lose -1 Audience, as your mystique is lost.

    Common moves:

    Heat:
    Who allied with me on my first team?
    Who just doesn’t understand Lucha Libre?
    Who thinks I don’t deserve my mask (or overall look)?
    Who is trying to convince me to change my style, my mask, or both?

    Background:
    Carlos Garcia grew up in southern Texas; his first two loves were music and Lucha Libre. Unsure which direction to follow as he got older he did both. His first big break was being signed to Rio Grande wrestling, a primarily Lucha production that ran shows in Mexico and Texas. El Corrido blew up. His flashy style, singing voice, good looks, and playboy attitude make him incredibly popular in the small production. His in ring larger than life persona carried over outside the ring and soon Garcia was spending his nights chasing women and throwing wild parties till the sun came up. He began to think the promotion was beneath him (and in truth it probably was). While RGW champion a backstage altercation with the owner's son (and former champion) ended with a gun being pulled on Carlos. Things backstage continued to sour from there; eventually leading to Carlos being stripped of his title and fired from the company. He bounced from small promotion for a few months before coming to TCW.

    Non-match look: Simple fitted suit, no tie, with top couple button on dress shirt unbuttoned.
    Wrestling look: Ring attire are gold wrestling trunks with gold knee ad elbow pads and some shitty little golden boots. Entrance attire for matches includes a golden short-sleeved sweater with a zippe front and hood, a baseball hat with an unbent bill, and stunner shades (multiple colors). The hat and hood are both worn at the same time for maximum asshole.
    Hails From: Newport Beach, California
    Entrance: Chiddy Bang, "Opposite of Adults"
    Role: Heel

    Look: +1
    Power: -2
    Real: +1
    Work:0

    FINISHING MOVE: The Moneymaker (Lifting Facelock into a Codebreaker)
    When you’re booked to win a match, roll 2d6. On a 10+, you hit your Finisher clean. Choose whether you or your opponent gains +1 Audience. On a 7-9, you need to hit your Finisher twice. Choose whether you gain +1 Heat with each other, or they gain +1 Audience. On a Botch, choose whether you rush through the botched move, get the win and lose -1 Audience, or you let them counter it into something that looks better, and take the loss (this overrides Creative’s booking).

    FIGHTING SPIRIT: When taken to the limit you dig deep and find the passion and fire to press on. Once per match, when your opponent clearly has the upper hand and presses the attack, narrate how you ignore the pain and take control of the match. This works as the Interrupt Move, but take 1 Momentum from your opponent instead of spending 1.

    CARRY THE COMPANY: You are anointed to carry the title scene of your division. When a match that involves the title is announced, roll +Real. On a 10+, pick 2, on a 7-9, pick 1: book yourself into or out of the match (the title must remain on the line); you book the finish of the match; you book a rematch of your choice after the match; add an additional stipulation to that match. On a Botch, management doubts your judgment this time and your opponent picks one from the list to their own advantage.

    Audience: +2
    Momentum: +1
    Injury: 0

    Background (definitely the abbreviated version):
    From the first day he walked into the Tri-County Wrestling Training School and Daycare Center, people realized that Kosta Tolos was destined for greatness. He had a great look, was a natural athlete, and had more charisma than the rest of his training class combined. "The Adonis" Kosta Tolos was put into a top spot upon graduating and made a good connection with the fans, but something felt missing, like an extra edge.

    So he turned heel and became "The Golden Greek", and TCW found themselves as the home-base of one of the hotter acts on the scene today.

    Kosta Tolos has become something of a modern-day Ric Flair - a heel that draws people in who want to see him lose. Tolos is something of a chameleon in the ring, able to wrestle a variety of styles and make any opponent look good. Backstage, the still relatively-young Tolos is more reserved and quiet, which has allowed him to command a level of respect in the locker room, and acts as an impressive juxtaposition to the bombast and flair for dramatics that Tolos employs with a mic in his hand.

    At this point, Kosta Tolos seems destined for something greater, but he still has an allegiance to TCW that cannot be denied, and Tolos is determined to carry the promotion to unknown heights.

    ALRIGHT WRESTLERS, now that we all have gimmicks and most of us have characters, let's start talking about the Heat questions.

    Each wrestler has four questions on their Gimmick sheet which define how they relate to other PCs. Questions define initial feuds and grant wrestlers Heat with one another. Each question will be answered by the name of one other PC. one PC can answer multiple questions for another (so two wrestlers can start with +4 Heat with one another, or a wrestler can start with +1 Heat with four other wrestlers).

    We have enough characters to where we'll be able to answer every question for every wrestler. So what I'd like you to do is go through the list of questions below, and copy into a post any questions you think could be answered by your character. Then, if multiple people list a question, the corresponding player can decide who to write down. If that makes sense. Does that make sense?

    There are a couple here I'll answer to start.

    Shoreditch Serpent
    -Who’s asking me for tips to add something fresh to their act? Dr. Skull, he wants keep the gimmick going so he doesn't have to take up a crappier persona.

    Joe Destiny
    -Who thinks I’m completely overrated? Mort remembers Joe. He was a punk kid when he breezed through, and he knew his rushing things would come to a bad end. He'll try to make sure Joe doesn't end up on the trainer's table, but he won't be shocked when he does. In fact, he's likely to end up like...

    Hedley "Hed" Turner
    -Who thinks its past time for me to hang up my boots? Hed was past his prime when Mort was a stripling jobber. He keeps trying to get Hed to think about retiring, but to no avail.

    The Soviet Bear
    -Who would’ve gotten this gimmick if I wasn’t here to take it? Mort almost had to become The Soviet Bear, but was thankfully spared the embarrassment.

    EL Corrido was the champion at RGW. He feels the importance Kosta has backstage should be his.

    "The Conquering Hero" Joe Destiny
    Who do I have backstory with from encounters in other companies?
    El Corrido met Joe at a small promotion's show in an community center gym. They either got in trouble together after the show or Corrido was an ass to Joe, either works.

    The High-Flyer
    Who always has my back?
    Who mentored me when I first joined this roster?
    Who’s ripping off my highflying style?
    Depending on what Blank wants to do any of these could work. Either a friendship or rivalry.

    So far, I think for Hed Turner...

    "The Shoreditch Serpent" Carter Francis Bequest
    Who thinks I’m a waste of a roster slot?

    Funny don't make money. A guy who knows said it.

    "The Conquering Hero" Joe Destiny
    Who thinks I’m completely overrated?

    No fancy flips will make up for not showing up on time, and not taking care of the guy you're working with is going to get you stiffed real fast.

    El Corrido
    Who just doesn’t understand Lucha Libre?

    Stop hoppin' and spinnin' around and hit somebody already!


    Skull works for me for the one question mentioned so far, someone who has gone from newbie to veteran while Hed was already past his prime highlights how long he's been around.

    I figured using a submission hold for my finisher instead of a power-move made more sense for my character being a technical wrestler. I don't know if there are any special things regarding submission finishers.

    Started crossing off questions so we know which ones haven't been answered

    Current heat totals (I think--do both wrestlers mark heat when they answer a question, or just the one writing down the answer? In other words, does El Corrido also have +1 Heat with Kosta Tolos?)

    Dr. Skull
    Who’s made me look weak?
    Boris might have, but not on purpose. I think during a promo or something maybe Boris said something that was insensitive to Mort without realizing it about his days before as Atlas, reminding fans of Dr. Skull's darker past.

    El Corrido
    Who allied with me on my first team?
    As part of some stunt to create a World vs. USA storyline of all the "international" characters forming an NWO style league, Boris and El Corrido were reluctant partners. Boris and El Corrido's story arcs in it where the two feuding heads of the Global Legion, who fought as much against each other as they did the USA fighters, although outside the ring they were completely fine with each other. Then when El Corrido was "invited" to the American side with a promise of a "green card", he turned on Boris and the Global Legion and ended it. Boris, personally, holds no grudges but on screen still acts as if El Corrido was a traitor.

    Those are the two that stood out for me that hadn't be grabbed already. I'll think on another two later.

    Nope, just the player who's asking the question gets the Heat. Heat measures chemistry 2 characters have, and it can be a one-sided chemistry depending on how players answer questions. If someone has high Heat with some who doesn't reciprocate, it may mean that the low heat Wrestler doesn't think the other isn't worth their time, or the audience isn't necessarily interested in how that wrestler interacts with the other, but is very interested in how the high wrestler interacts with the low heat one. The book might explain it a bit better, but that's the gist.

    Also, all Faces have +1 additional Heat with all Heels and vice versa, so for the most part there should be the basics of chemistry for everyone on the roster.

    Carter Francis Bequest
    Who was my tag team partner before I found my true niche? and/or Who thinks my in-ring talent is being wasted in this role?
    Brian and Carter trained with the same coach before their debut, and were Tag Team partners until the infamous match with Dr. Skull. After their falling out and Carter's persona change they have been estranged both in and out of the ring. Brian misses the days with his friend, and doesn't understand why he'd choose to act like a fool rather than do what they loved.

    Dr. Skull
    Who can stand up to me in the ring? and/or Who made me look weak?
    During the Infamous 'David v Goliath' No-DQ match between Dr. Skull and Carter Francis Bequest, Brian had a run in when he thought his friend was in some real danger despite Carter asking him not to interfere. With mix of surprise and technical prowess he managed to get Skull to the mat and apply a particularly effective "Where Eagles Dare" causing him to tap and the ref to call the match in favor of Carter. Despite the win, things were never the same between them. From then on Brain earned a fan title of "The Man Who Broke the Skull."

    I like it! Now, the real question is, was Brian breaking kayfabe when he got into that match, or was it a work?

    I could see the story both ways, but I'd like to see what @Dyvim Tvar thinks about it.

    For consistency with your background with Carter, i think maybe it was a planned run-in but he wasn't in on it. So our falling out is because I didn't tell him management changed the booking at the last minute for the run-in and he thought he was going to get put over.

    @MagicPrime what are the questions for Brian?

  • MagicPrimeMagicPrime Designated Wizard Registered User regular
    Dex added them to the list, but here they are:

    Brian Eaglehart
    Who was holding me back as my tag team partner?
    Who’s trying to learn by watching me in the ring?
    Who’s jealous of my skills?
    Who is trying to teach me to be more of an entertainer?

    I think Hed Turner might have some input on one of those. Maybe not good input, but..

    Brian Eaglehart
    Who is trying to teach me to be more of an entertainer?

    Listen, I get the whole Top Gun thing, but you gotta connect with the crowd. And the kids today are into the rock music. We'll get you a fake guitar, get some girls to play your groupies, make some appearances at the record shop downtown...trust me, singer gimmicks always get over, nothing can go wrong here!

    Worked shoot innit.
    Everybody but Eagleheart, Skull and CFB were in the dark and thought it was a shoot (maybe are still unsure since there's fall out from CFB over it), but in reality it was always planned.
    However the original pitch was to use it as a springboard for CFB to get him over as a more legit and credible worker (this would tie into my background stuff I'm working on that I really need to structure properly so it's fit for public presentation) , however the owner bottled it (funny don't make money homie) and instead switched the plans so that Eagleheart got the big rub from it.
    Or some shit.

    Because of this I'll take
    Boris "The Soviet Bear" Melovic
    Who did I first throw through a symbol of my homeland to establish my character?

    The Global Legion was a strange gimmick for the Technico, he and the others fought for pride in their foreign country but Corrido never fell into a traditional heel role. While the Legion was doing old school mustache twirling, El Corrido was still kissing babies and serenading women in the crowd. When he informed everyone that he was leaving the Global Legion the audience read it as him breaking away from a bad influence, finally seeing that the other group was using him. Boris saw it as betrayal. He picked up the smaller luchador and threw him around the Global Legion headquarters set like a rag doll. The pinnacle of the segment was El Corrido being lifted over Boris' head and thrown threw the "glass" Global Legion centerpiece/sculpture (Not technical a Russian symbol but I think it still works, we can change if needed). Backstage El Corrido gets along great with Boris, he trusted him to do the spot that everyone was sure would cause the luchador injury.

    Dr Skull
    Who helps me come up with new directions for my character?

    CFB has a lot of creativity to spare. Nobody is saying it's always good creativity but there's something to be said for quantity over quality when it comes to being able to spread that wealth.

    Boris Melovic
    Who did I first throw through a symbol of my homeland to establish my character?

    Kayfabe: Can you imagine how powerful I'd be with a bear? The havoc I could wreak in the name of he who slithers in the dark betwixt worlds? Oh what could have been, of course nobody told me that "The Soviet Bear" wasn't an actual ursine so my attempts at capturing him with a wheelbarrow full of salmon and a net went sideways rather quickly.


    This is way better for a face so definitely Corrido should have it. However when I thought about the idea I legit laughed for like thirty seconds so I'm leaving it in.

    Brian Eaglehart
    Who was holding me back as my tag team partner?

    "The Conquering Hero" Joe Destiny
    Who’s excited that I’m finally on the roster?
    Look, Kosta Tolos has been on a little thing called THE INTERNET. He knows what happened to Destiny outside of the Tri-County area, but unlike others, Tolos sees it as an opportunity. If he can rehabilitate Destiny and make him a quality indie name again, then more people nationally will pay attention to TCW.

    "The Head Turner" Hedley "Hed" Turner
    Who thinks I still have a place in the business?
    Kosta Tolos subscribes to the "three-ring circus" theory of wrestling, in that you want to have as well-rounded a show as possible. To that end, having a veteran like Turner around ultimately works to TCW's, and by extension Tolos's, benefit, because he can bring in more people and create a bigger audience for Tolos to show exactly why he's so good.

    Brian Eaglehart
    Who’s trying to learn by watching me in the ring?
    The best way to wash out of this business is to never grow your skills, and to that end, Tolos watches every match in an attempt to grow as a performer. In particular, Kosta has been watching Eaglehart's matches to figure out how to be a better technical wrestler. He thinks it involves more flexibility, because he saw Eaglehart do this thing at a recent show where he put himself into a little ball and started rolling around the ring for like 10 minutes.

    "The Head Turner" Hedley "Hed" Turner
    Who thinks I still have a place in the business?

    Of course Hed should still be around! We need a good commentator who's been around a long time, or a guy who can help Skull backstage who knows every injury in the book. In the ring though? Hell no, man, the guy can barely move! Besides, who gives a shit about a cravate anymore?

    Boris "The Soviet Bear" Melovic
    Who would get the biggest boost from beating me?

    Not everyone around here knows who Joe is. What they do know, though, is that the badass local guy who can take down the foreign powerhouse is someone you should pay attention to.

    Dr. Skull
    Who is terrified of me backstage?

    Any guy who can destroy Bounding Bobby is someone you shouldn't fuck with. But, other than that...A guy who hurt someone so bad that he now has to be in a wheelchair? Maybe Joe sees something of himself in that. And maybe Joe wants to avoid any reminder of that so it doesn't come back to bite him in the ass.

    Who do I have backstory with from encounters in other companies?
    El Corrido met Joe at a small promotion's show in an community center gym. They either got in trouble together after the show or Corrido was an ass to Joe, either works.

    El Corrido
    Who is trying to convince me to change my style, my mask, or both?
    "Come on man, you don't need that dumb dancing shit in your entrance! It makes you look like a goof!" - Joe, back at an RGW show, seconds before Corrido took a swing at him.

    I'm willing to change one of these (or add another) when Blank posts his character.
    EDIT: Whoops, hadn't refreshed the page in a long time, didn't see Nirya already got that one.

    "The Head Turner" Hedley "Hed" Turner
    Who became a wrestler because of me?
    I remember being a kid and going to visit my dad after my parents were divorced. I'd always be so excited for the TRI-C Wrestling matches to come through his hometown, we didn't have anything like it back in Arizona. He'd get me popcorn and some candy and we'd hoot and holler the whole time. Back when I was that wide-eyed kid my favorite wrestler on that circuit was none other than Hedley Turner. I even got some autographs and a few pictures back then. When I joined up with TRI-C I don't think he remembered me... who could blame him? Being around so long and seeing so many venues -- But I still remember, I think that's what matters most.
