Basically this thread is to tell you how to send in that you want to be booked for the Halloween special next month. Keep in mind that this show will be canon and any promos and wins from this show will have merit in the booking logic.
The only requirement is that you either make a costume or request one to be made. You can change entrances to fit the costume more if you like. Inversely if you'd like a character to be booked that would not bother with a costume in character just let me know, but I think everyone wants a good selection of cool costumes for people to see.
Cards on the table, this is how the show is going to look
-Singles Match -Singles Match -Tag Team Match/Singles match (depending on signups) -Singles Match -Halloween Battle Royal (6 women)
The only thing you have to specify is if you want in the Battle Royal or not, and I'll pair the other matches up myself. Obviously if you sign up a tag team then you'll be in that match potentially. I know I'll get more entries than I need so I'm sorry ahead of time if you don't get in. I'm prioritizing ready made costumes over ones I have to make myself if that helps.
Just send me a DM with the character, costume, reference pic, and the CC tags if you have them and I'll see you at the end of October!
First of all, thank you guys for putting in the work and writing so much for this show. So far there have been 70+ promos for just a handful of shows and it's given so much personality to RISE in such a short period of time. I think this is the most fun and interest I've had in fedmaking in a long time and it's all thanks to you.
So, now that Part 3 is over it's time to make good on what I pitched as the main point of RISE, the promo participation.
I've actually gone and written down every character that's had a promo for RISE so far and what show they were posted under. As I said, I don't put much stock in quality any even less baring on length, I really just want characters and stories to tell with (semi-)simmed results.
So, starting on Part 4, you're going to be seeing more of the characters that have had promos and slightly less of those who haven't.
What does this mean if you're not booked? Promo anyway. Promo for anything you want, call out certain people, collaborate and appear in other promos, pitch me storylines (as long as you talked to the other person first), do whatever you like, just give us some of your character. That being said I'm going to try and get every single person on the roster debuted during the next three shows this year. I may get more shows finished in 2017 but my plan is to get 3 more minimum to leave me time to work on CLOSE and help run NEWDay. --
Now, as for the format, I don't think I'll be doing shows quite as stacked as the last one, and maybe another booster if absolutely needed, but the shows will be getting slightly longer than the first two, partially to a bigger focus on the Tag Teams. One match a show isn't going to cut it with how big and varied the teams RISE has are, and it wouldn't be fair to only have two teams max showcased.
The Valkyrie Championship is also going to be defended every show from now on, but I wont have a waitlist like TANW and the Open Titles. It, too, along with the RISE Up Bracket, will be based on performance and promoing.
Really, I mean it, even if it's just a paragraph of [ANGRY JAPANESE], don't be worried that you can't do a full scene or a major reveal to a character, just make something happen
I said this in the Discord at least a month ago, but I do want to make a statement on the site regarding moving RISE to 2K18 just so it's easy to see.
I won't be moving RISE to 2K18 until after NEWDay. I know this is a while to wait but with the amount of content on my save, CLOSE and Showcase production during that time, and the amount of time that it will take to recreate everything in the new game, I think this will not be a bad thing.
Plus I've also taken it upon myself to run NEWDay itself as of late so it's not going to help the prospects of getting a whole new game figured out and ready to run a fed before then.
All of this, of course is under the assumption that they won't include a major new feature like creation importing or the like, in which case I'll be more than happy to move over quicker, but let's not hold our breath.
I expect great things with 2K18 from the rest of you guys before I make the move though <3
