Does that mean we start working on our stories in 9-10 weeks or we submit our stories in 9-10 weeks? I would assume it's the former, but...

I'll be posting everything that needs posting (references, etc). The deadline for auditions will be 4 to 5 weeks after everything is posted.

I'm with Klok in that this sounds a lot like an RP and I'm just not into RPs.

You want us to create characters to place in some competition. You then want us to write about our character competing against the other characters everyone's created.

How is this not a RP?

How's it any different from making a story competitively? Or a game, for that matter.. You're going to need to develop the story about something either way. I mean, when I first announced it, that aspect hasn't changed. I wouldn't tell you to write about a simple competition, like some Nascar commentary. How many stories (that are good) aren't based around a character? Rather than giving you some rinky dink character to write about (andstory)and judge your grammar, I'm judging your creativity andingenuity.

I mean, instead of me telling you exactly what to write, and how and who, I'm giving you free reign to do whatever the hell you want. (Also, holding your hand through all this and claiming you're doing something worth your time.. Would be a lie and very boring for everyone involved.)

In a sense, this is like the 'glass is half full/empty' arguement. It's entirely up to you how to interpret it. All I can really do is say "Just try it. THEN you can decide for yourself."
(Just the guide)

The complete opposite of taking a DM/players approach (most OCTs are in this format), would be just to declare the matchup and leave the storymaking entirely to the competitors. Any sort of intent to carry a story between the host and players or P2P is pretty much roleplaying.

I'd think 9~10 weeks for participants to make character sheets/bios, declare a round of matchups with a 9~10 week deadline, then judge. The power limits were in the right direction for the style of moderation needed, imo. Purely an imo

Round match ups. I'll (and other judges) only match peeps up and give them a general location to fight in, like a kitchen or something. Asides from that, no host interference. So no.
Rounds will last 5 to 6 weeks, I think that's fairly decent as long as people don't procrastinate 'til the last second (just work on your stuff, maybe a hour a day. or in your spare time, whatever you wanna do). The next 9 to 10 weeks will just be me waiting to have access to a school computer to actually SEE peoples stuff.

It's not an RP because everyone's not writing about the same thing. There is no GM. There is a judge(s) who will decide who writes the best. It's just a paradoxial competitive writing contest. I usually get lost easy and I'm following this better than most people. Forum RPing is a crapton different. Okay, I've stated my stuff. Byebye.

Does nothing to change the fact that I'm still not interested.
What I'd rather see for the contest formula is you just give a general theme and we write whatever kind of story. None of this OC vs OC business.

As long as your comic is totally copyrighted to you, every aspect of it, and it's not some invincible, perfect, godly character, then you're good to go. O:

Mah. Bad. Have crap over here that I didn't expect. (Actually, I DID expect it, since EVERY time I make plans, they get F-)

Anyway, it'll happen when it happens. Or not, at this rate. Sorry's. If it doesn't happen, I'll just.. Start it up in a year or so, when I'm in college.
