ATTENTION ALL MANGARAIDERS! PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR THE GRAND ALL RAIDER MANGA CREATION PROJECT!!!

The goal of this project is simple, throw all of our efforts into the creation of a single great manga. There are many ways to participate, but first the setting.

Jason_D_Black:
Quote
The idea is not fully created yet and is still in a state of changing, or total editing. The idea was about a world with overpopulation which was controlled by one great government. 80% of this world population is poor and live together in slums, 11% of the population have enough money to live in the city's where there still is room to live and 9% are rich and also the rulers of the world. Because of the overpopulation problem and because the world government was afraid for a rebellion, they sealed a gigantic piece of land with slums and a few cities with walls and a giant protected North and South gate. At the North gate they placed all the criminals from different prisons. Whoever reached the South gate first won their freedom back and will become loaded with gold. However, because of this price most people (like assassins or mercenary's) entered the prisoners competition to win that gold price. This would be an easy way to lower the world population without destroying the land with chemical warfare.

We have a certain number of main jobs up to be claimed, but those are finite, so if you want to be part of this grand project, get in your application early. You may be asking then: "But if there are only so many positions, then how is this an 'All raider project?'" Well I'm glad you asked Timmy, because this story's universe will be populated not by characters of the writer's design, but of each and every one of you!

Let's get into the nitty gritty of it then.


RULES

Character Creation: Every raider is allowed to create 1 character. This character must fit into the setting, and they must be original for this story. You MAY NOT submit an existing character nor one you created in one of your own stories. Your duties in character creation will include both physical description and at least a short personality description. You may include as much information as you'd like, but be sure to have your character in before the deadline so the writing can begin. All characters are to be appropriate as well. This manga is still subject to the site's rules on adult material.

Once you submit your character however, you will become hands off. So make sure whatever you want to say about them is said before hand and that the information is decently made in detail. There is to be no micro-managing of characters by their creators in this project.

Applying: [/u]If you are planning to apply for any of the positions, you are expected to be here for the long haul. If you fail to complete your designated task(s), then you will be replaced by whosoever holds the position below yours. (ex: The head writer drops out, so the secondary writer takes his place). These circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis, and we will work with you if you have a legitimate short term reason of absence. As always it will be good to always give advanced notice if you are planning on disappearing or being unable to continue.

Command Structure: Certain members of the staff will be superior to others, and those below them will take their word as law concerning the items in their field. The secondary writer may have input, but must concede to the head writer at the end of the day. The head writer must concede to the head artist about the names they produce. All of those who input characters must concede to the head artist about the designs of their characters. I think you see where this is going. The structure will be clearly outlined. So please understand this from the get go.


POSITIONS

All but the noted positions are ready to be filled. Please pm Jason_D_Black with the position you wish to take along with examples of your work to serve as a resume (if applicable)

Show Runner: You are in charge of keeping the show on the road. You make sure that people are making deadlines, you are in charge of setting deadlines. It will be your responsibility to keep everyone motivated, enthused, and productive. The S.R. is also responsible for deciding when anyone is not filling the requirements of their position, and should be axed. To this end you must be impartial, and put completion of the manga as your highest priority.

Idea Man: Jason_D_Black. Jason is in charge of the general idea. He himself admits that he isn't the one to write this thing, but is content with putting out the setting and letting the writers run wild with it. Go to him to flesh out the setting and big ideas.

Reference Guide: Coryn (Hello.) Coryn was in charge of a very similar project in the past. Use him as a guide on things not to do. (He's already written all of this, which should help stop the major mistakes he saw from happening again.)

Head Editor: The head editor does exactly what you'd expect. He/She is to look over each chapter before it goes into the artist. They are to offer suggestions on making it better, as well as fix any and all grammatical or spelling errors. The Head Writer still holds power over the Head Editor as far as plotline is concerned however.

Secondary Editor: The secondary editors job is the same as the head editor. They are to work in tandem with the Head Editor and the writers. (I suggest using skype or some other instant messenger.) And they are who will take the position of Head Editor should the H.E. fail to perform.

Head Writer: The Head Writer is in charge of writing all drafts of the chapters and producing names (storyboards) if the Head Artist requests them too. The H.W. is the final word on what happens in the story, but is expected to consider the ideas put forth by the editors and the Secondary Writer. And while it is not against the rules, it is professional for the H.W. to not favor their own character over those of others. Finally,the H.W. is to write in whatever format is preferred by the Head Artist. The H.W.'s words are subject to the imagination of the H.A.. If they interpret something differently from how you imagine it, you may suggest they do otherwise, but the H.A. retains the ability to veto you.

Secondary Writer: The Secondary Writer is there to brainstorm with the H.W. But is expected to ultimately leave all writing decisions to the H.W. The S.W. is also there to take over the H.W.'s position should they fail to perform.

Head Artist: The Head Artist is responsible for the brunt of the art requirements. In the initial stages they are to be held responsible for character sketches, and will eventually control the art of the manga proper. They are expected to be able to create a finished version of the art on the pages (inked if on physical paper), and for typesetting.

Secondary Artist: The Secondary Artist is the same as the H.A., and will serve as a replacement if necessary. This may of course mean a change in art style, but it is better to see a change like this and actually finish the manga, rather than not finishing at all. The S.A. is also expected to be able to put the finishing touches on any pages that the H.A. cannot. (Formatting, typesetting, etc.) If possible the two should work in tandem to expedite the process, but this is not a requirement. Again, the S.A. is subordinate to the H.A.



Remember: Do not apply if you do not expect to be able to fulfill your duties! Be courteous of the people you are working with! And as always: Have fun, but be professional!

Application for characters
For those of you who want to add your own custom character to the manga, you'll have to follow this application beneath and also send it to Jason_D_Black with the message title: "Character (CharactersName)"
You will always get a response that the character has been or has been not accepted, but this can take a while. Also, when your character is accepted don't expect it to be in the manga the next day, it will take them to create and insert inside of the storyline. Note that the character will have to follow the story and the possibility's in it. For example, creating a alien from outer space with a space suit and green ears will never be accepted.
