    Default Hey guys, let's put Overtel out of business! (ARG/RP/Fan-Fic Pitch Thread)

    I want to try to host a fictional blog, set in early 2169, created for the purpose of exposing Overtel to the world and reviving the legend of Pierre Belmondo. It will be a privet thread (on another site for more immersion) hosted by an ex-Overtel puppet with a shady past and a controversial career. By posting on the blog about things you're character thinks, knows, or does, you'll be making a small contribution to the blog as a whole.

    To show that a do have the ability to create a coherent plot, I've made a backstory surrounding the host of the could be blog. If enough people show an interest, that I'll post details on the plans that I have totally made, and in know way am I not prepared.

    Pilot Log, Nic Carlo.doc

    I made an attachment because of length (it's 5 and 1/2 pages). It was made in a program that wasn't word, and I wasn't able to proof read as much as I'd have likes, so I apologize for any major problems.

    BTW, I do mention original canon characters, so if something turns out to clash with the predetermined canon (I researched as much as I could, but you never know), please let me know so that I can fix it.

    Any O.C. will do, and you can make more than one (but not 50, that's just silly). They should have some reason to want to take down Overtel. I expect to see a lot of purists, but I would like to see a wide range of character types.

    One more thing, before anyone goes crazy, if you want to post a backstory OOC, base it around information that's somehow public. It can be in the classic news quotes/leaked memo's found in the games instructions manuals, or a basic description, but nothing anyone else wouldn't know. (the deal with Nic Carlo's log is that it's leaked, but only viewable from her privet log.)

    I really do hope to get this off the ground and running. I kind-of want to go over and add on to the backstory a bit more, but I'd rather leave doors open to inspire other characters.

    If it is any help, I could get around to finish the last part of my three part entry on the F9000 on the Wipeout Chronicles, if you are interested in using any references from it.

    I just now finished with the first two parts... JUST NOW! (my n00b is showing)

    I probably will take reference from your series, just so that I can have a consistent, fleshed out timeline, as opposed to "I guess this happened cause idk it makes sense". I also really want to see the rest of the entry, like, a lot...

    tl;dr=very yes

    Any any thoughts hosting the ARG on blogspot? I would just host it here, but I want to separate OOC posts, and blogger seems like it has enough to it's interface to simulate what I'm going for. The downside is that everyone participating would probably need to get a whole now gmail, and I understand how that would be inconvenient.

    I suppose I could start a new thread and have OOC posts grayed out (Ex: Your post is bad, and you should feel bad), but I don't trust people seeing this for the first time and breaking the rules without realizing. And besides, do you really want a whole other thread dedicated to the same subject?

    But the important is: how to organize the whole RP stuff? And what is the "Frame" to begin? Ok, is settled a year before the Great Fall, but in a RP is best if we begin with a "Once upon a time", and the RPers then "answer" by completing piece by piece the frame, right? P:

    The idea OOC is very fine however! ^^

    FTA is in fact also a roleplay, everyone has his teams, characters (, nations...) and writes form that perspective.
    Things that are not part of the story are discussed in the same thread.

    Really? I thought Ace3000 just built off of other ideas, but still kept authors power. I admit I don't know that much about FTA (I read through relevant the pages of the "New Team" thread, and the very early parts of the story. guess I gotta read more now.), but I guess if the cool kids are doing it.

    Really, my dumb face says again? I sometimes get over obsessed with aesthetics and what make things look most hyper-realistic. I guess know one really cares. I still feel like having it on this very thread is wrong. I want to have some sort of organization with the posts, and I don't think we can do that with this one (I never actually planned ahead).

    Sorry for not making that very clear, but was the idea I was going for. We all post on the blog (which I guess is probably going to be in this website now...) about events everyones OC experienced as though they actually happened. They're not necessarily events that have been brought up before, I encourage you to make up your own, rather it be a recollection from the past or something recent that they just saw, just so long as it's interesting, and so long as every post isn't a new thing.

    I really appreciate being the feedback, now I'm not as wrong and stupid. The way things look right now, every post will have OOC statements gray, and the characters' post will probably have some header that looks like it came from another site. If I did any other bad, be sure to say something so that it won't be got a bad anymore.
