Hmmm, I got a few band members from an old comic that I'd like to re-use at some point, trouble is their a four piece, and I suck at having my characters sing, or play guitar, or you know, musicness, I was gonna ask if ye'd mind a few fan type characters, going just to listen to the music.
Yeah, you can make up to two characters just going to see the bands.
Actually, we'd probably need a couple of fan type characters eventually.

I'd like to snag the character design for a legendary rocker, too! Is that allowed if I'm already submitting two characters? If not, then I will only sulk/cry for a few minutes. No big deal =D

EDIT: Not sure if the image is too big, or what, but here is a link in case I have to take it down: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v410/OhSiris/Roland.jpg


Here's my character - Roland, a singer - I'm just going to enter one character, so I can focus on the supporting cast we need, like the waitresses/fans/judges/cops.



I think we need a Yoko Ono/Courtney Love type, either lumped in with the old rockers or a character of her own…

I guess I'm good for a fallback if anything needs doing, so feel free to ask me to do stuff that needs doing.

It's allowed, these are extra supporting characters that don't count against you.

Will do, thank you.

That'd be awesome!

More news:
At the comic's forum we're discussing making a map for this thing. You can volunteer to help make it! Linkie: http://www.drunkduck.com/community/view_topic.php?tid=42060&cid=3381&comic_id=27415

Greeting rock monkeys! New news: Time for pairings!
Here's how the pairing thing is going to work: I'm going to need a volunteer to go back over this thread and make a list of who all has registered to do this, I don't want to forget anyone. Then you need to send PQs to everyone to make sure they're still in and can do this. Then make any needed changes to the list and send it to me, and I'll begin randomly pairing people.
I posted this in the other forum as well.
Not sure if he posted here, but magicmaker sent a pq a while back saying he was in, so add him to the list and pq him to.
Brownie points goes to the volunteers who do this! Brownie points!

Oh yes, more news. I plan to visit relatives soon for a couple of weeks, so if I don't respond in roughly five days, I want the 2/3 members of the Awesome Magnificent team to randomly pair everyone up into 6 groups. Make it random dammit!

In the other forum we got a map. Each team will get to choose their starting point on the map, and thus what obstacles are going to be in their way.

We'll settle out such things as turns, and all that jazz later. After all, 6 groups telling about all the things that happen to them in the first chapter is a bit big, so I need the organizers to work out a system on how this can work, flow so readers can understand what all is going on, and keep things fun and fast paced.

Well, that was an awful lot.

Any questions? No seriously, I'm almost positive I've forgotten or missed something.

Actually go time isn't nearing til mid-July-ish. Don't know if that helps any.
I'm mostly trying to get everyone paired up and all so everyone can have a ton of time to brain storm.
Again, don't know if that helps any.

Sweet! You have until this coming Tuesday to tell me at least the names of your 1-2 characters so I can add 'em to the band member rotation. Looking forward to working with you!

Yeah, I designed the legendary rocker as asked: Johnny Chronic, Father of Punk
I started a new thread in the comic forum for the legends and slapped my drawing and description in there.

Hey guys! Pairings are up! I posted them here!

People always post links to the randomizer they used…I used scraps of paper and a hat. For the record.

(Side note, I'll be out of town until Monday, so I will be mysteriously silent in the forums, etc. Have fun!)

Just for the record: It's never too late to register, we can still use another band or two, but we don't quite have enough participants right now.
Well, okay, so I suppose it would be too late to register after the comic is already done and all, but you knew what I meant; the more the merrier.

Just a random thought that I wanted to share with you: Depending on how well this does I was thinking of making a sequel/s after this. Not quite an annual event perhaps, but often enough everyone could look forward to the almost-annually War of the Bands. Like 2, 3, etc.
Thoughts?

Heck, I'd make a videogame of it if I could!

Hehe, I'd pay for that videogame! :P

We could have like War of the Bands Spinoffs in different continents, like Rockervision, live from Finland! :P

But it would have to have be like Ratchet and Clank, with Racing, fighting, and a crap load of mini games, instead of like Rock Band or Guitar Hero. An action command thing like Kingdom Hearts 2 would be awesome, you could do a bunch of combos and fighting moves.

Good news Rock Monkeys! The start up date for the comic will be July 16th!
Also, if you're really interested, I really think we could make a small flash game for WotB.

That's no good…
I'm sure there's some kind of leader-y thing I should do in cases like these…

Aha! I got it!
If Mr. Kent hasn't responded in about 2-4 days, we'll set you up in another ‘band’ with a couple of other participants.

There, I win the leader-y award. Go me.
