Okay, fellows, after passing the baton to that Doom asshole for a bit so I could reflect on my life (and deal with shit like finding out my dad is an inhuman mutant skrull dog thing) and how awesome I am, I have returned with a new challenge.
Only this time, I'm not making fictional characters fight for your enjoyment and gambling purposes.
I'm making you
make fictional characters fight for your enjoyment.
Confused? Don't be.
This challenge will test your creativity, your ability to play well with your friends, and smite your enemies. It will test your guts, your instincts, and your ability to deal with a bunch of bullshit I decide to heap all over you because I'm basically all powerful and that is one of the perks.
In short, I'm asking you, the forumers, the dwellers of this "message board" to prove that you have what it takes to produce a comic story. You can go it alone, drawing and writing your own stories, or you can team with another forumer and split the duties.
But what stories? Good question!
When you sign up, choose a partner, and list three heroes you would like to write about. This hero will be your champion through your battles. You will be pitted against an opposing team with its own champion and given a prompt (could be a setting, could be a situation, could be something ridiculous) and it will be up to you
to prove why your hero would come out on top.
Depending on interest, the format of the tournament may change, so I'll reveal more details once I close sign-ups. But here are the basics, what you'll need to know.IN SUMMARY
Choose a partner (or go it alone) and a hero, and battle other forumers to prove not only that your hero is superior, but that you
are superior. The concept is similar to other "forum battles" like the ones SE++ has had recently, or the Artist Corner Tournament thing that they do, but with a twist: you (and/or your partner) choose a hero, and pit him or her in mortal (or not mortal) combat against the hero of another forumer. Winners will be chosen by popular vote (POLL THREADS!), and the format of the tournament will be revealed later.SIGN-UPS OPEN TONIGHT AND WILL CLOSE NEXT MONDAY (7-16-07)
Please follow this format:
Hero Choice 1:
Hero Choice 2:
Hero Choice 3:
List any heroes you may want to use. Heroes will be assigned on a first-come first serve basis, but don't hesitate to put a hero already listed on your own list if you really want to use them, in case the person who called dibs backs out or changes their mind. More information will be available on the 16th.
Ask any questions you like here. Not all may be answered yet, but it won't hurt anything to ask.CURRENT TEAM ASSIGNMENTS

If there are two hero names by your team name, that means your pick is borderline and you will definitely need to convince me and the other contestants.
If I missed you, or if I mixed something up, let me know here, and I'll fix it.
