Maybe several of us can be the leaders. I would prefer to keep it not dependent on one single person as far as possible.

fair enough, whoever wants to then so be it; it is a community after all. hell, maybe i'll be in on it too if i got nothing better to do  ;D

Quote from: Walter B
Ideally should be someone who updates the OP somehow frequently so any new people who checks the thread would get a quick grasp of whats all about and what the current stand is.

if updating is a position then i'll volunteer, i'm practically on here everyday anyway

Quote from: Walter B
Dude I was providing a fiction background. The wish is for the character, just a way to give the fight some context. The Lego thing was just fun is the name of the fictional lord that hostes the tournament

my mistake, i took it too literal

Quote from: Walter B
Lets just say everyone submit your character or reach out to an artist that could be interested in submitting a character. Short description of powers, abilities, etc. Ideally with some concept art.

sounds good to me  :thumbsup:

Why are they fighting? What's at stake if they lose? What can they achieve by winning?

The raiders tournament is a yearly tournament organized by Master Lego. Characters from different worlds of the mangaraiders universe come together in a fight to death elimination match. The winner gets to make any wish.

It would be non canon so it doesn't matter if your character dies  ;D

That sounds quite uninteresting actually. And you should care if your characters die. It doesn't matter if it isn't canon, what kind of writer doesn't make the deaths of their characters be emotional? I've shed more than a few tears at the deaths of the characters in Crow's project.

I'd hold off on trying to get an artist to draw this.

I think the objective should be to get something drawn instead of writing a lot and ending with a different version of Whitecrows project. It is much better when you have some cool art to show to people and get them curious about participating in next rounds.

Artists tend to draw their own characters anyways so seeing that their characters could be drawn is more likely to be bait for writers. And further more, you're basically saying that any artist that does join will have to draw for free. Why should they, why should I, join?

Robin, if i may, it doesn't have to be 'to the death' but just as a suggestive theme. ideas are still being thrown out there so nothing's been set in stone yet.

also, this is just for fun. nobody's forcing you to do this, its just an idea that's meant to spark people's interest by joining together as a collective group with their individual talents. artists may not be as willing, but if any are, then they can show off their work to others and their flexibility about drawing from someone else's perspective.

it's not a great concept but its something.

YES. SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN

Just to clarify

For artist: Submitting your character does not mean you are necesarily expected to draw a lot of the character when it shows up later on. We are glad to accept all cool characters. Your submission is non-binding

The story is still open for suggestions. Anyone has ideas propose them and we can decide or vote or something.

The end product is going to look so cool and you will get so much exposure. Your character will get famous.  ;D ;D ;D

You can also forfeit the match. Don't have to end up death but the point is the other will be trying to kill you.

I'm not even sure how to respond to that... Exposure where? In MR? Already here.

When we end up with something really cool I will post it in many groups in deviantart and facebook with links to your gallery in DA or where you want.

(Crow walks in, looks on the floor) "Oh, there's my two cents... perhaps i'll just throw it in this here topic I stumbled upon."

Well, well, well... we have the beginning stages of a Character Tournament on our hands - always nice to see a member(s) of the MR Community chatting it up.

If I may, considering i'm on my second MR Collaborative Project, allow me to insert my insight in to this....

First and foremost - the biggest thing about setting up something like this (which will wind up being larger in scale than you currently believe) is finding a middle ground that works for all those who participate. What do I mean? In my first MR Project (Character tournament) - I vowed no character deaths, because there were some who weren't comfortable with that - although they wanted to participate. Obviously this is an easy thing to accommodate, but it's just an example - if you garner interest, you will find that your original concept may change drastically.

Next thing: Artists... Mmmm... This is a general lesson learned - Artists won't really have an interest in drawing anything they aren't (themselves) interested in drawing, especially if the words "Exposure" "Cool" and "Unpaid" are thrown together. Now, you may be able to get artists without much experience, but to think that someone who can make money for their art, is going to willingly draw other characters (especially when it's somewhat noticeable that one of the main purposes of this is for free work) is a long shot.

Neeeext: A Leader... multi-writers... if that route is taken, your project will most likely never reach its conclusion. Personal experience, I've written the battles, come up with the stories, invested in the character interactions and relationships... all of the decisions involved; as it pertains to advancement of the project, has been mostly me. And in truth, in order for your project to work - you're going to need 1 Writer, a max of two, if they're on the same page. Now, of course, you can implement things such as Character Moments and offer opportunities for individual collaborations and whatnot, things to get some invested participants who would like to write, involved. But other than that, to think that all the participants are going to find the time to write and write some more... bluntly - no. My first project (as well as my second) in the beginning, has much participation, but as the time goes on - and your story forms, people write less and less - to the point now, where I post and it's almost exclusively me.

Let's see... what else... oh - a story, it's importance: Large. Why? Because it was suggested that this would essentially introduce the concept of a connected universe - well, if that's the case, then a story is essential.

Lastly, I saw mention of trying to make this different, otherwise it'd just be another project like Crow's (That's me). Truth is... no matter what approach you take, if you're going to do something like this - it's going to be similar to what I've done. For me, I based my concept off of Galactic Raiders, which was a project that was undertaken by Roshiro Byakko, with aid from me. When Roshiro left the site, I took the initiative and went ahead and crafted a world that could house all the characters of MR, and then I went about crafting a Trilogy that would allow for participation from everyone. It took me 4 months to plan out Project 1... FOUR months, and it was a simple character tournament, Project 2 took me another 4, and Project 3 may be another 4... fact is, there isn't much diversity to be had when it comes to an MR collaboration - it is going to be what it is going to be: A Collaboration of characters - the way you make it unique isn't by having artists draw characters, or by teasing death... you make it stand out by putting as much effort and care in to it as you would your own separate story. I put as much attention in to my MR Projects, as I do Society X and Amnesia... it's a must if you want this to succeed.

Best of luck to you all on this. If it works out, and I hope it does, then that's awesome - i'll look forward to reading it. If it doesn't, and you all have an interest in being a part of something like this - i'll have applications open for Project 3 within a month or so.

Crow thank you so much for your input. I will take all of that into account and take a careful look at your great project!!

I understand this is probably more work than it seems at first glance. But I think this has a lot of potential and it can be a very fun project that will motivate beginner and advanced artist to join later on.

Yeah I just realized that.

I honestly don't get whats the big deal about it. Is not like is cannon. Anything else handicaps your fights because your characters don't go all out.

I think the focus should be on getting some art for it done instead of making a huge story. That would differentiate it from yours somehow.

I would rather keep the story making efforts focused on coming up with interesting fights/character interactions instead of spending a lot of it on context.   Just have some kind of cool tournament and thats it.

Of course any writer can submit a story if they want but the critical thing is getting the interest of artist.

Wow. Thats a lot! And you have something really cool there. But thats also because your tournament has like 24 characters. This one should be 8, keep it simpler at the beginning.

I disagree. I made the Character Tournament extremely exciting, and allowed everyone to go all out without death involved. Death, just to have death, doesn't make it better.

The number of characters meant nothing. Even if I had done an 8 character tournament, it would've still taken a good amount of time to develop everything, because I (like it was mentioned in this topic) had an ambition of potential crossovers, or having more of these done. And for that reason, I needed to make sure that pieces fit and things made sense.

As I said, I wish you the best in this project.

Kalvin by Hope4Future

Character: Kalvin
