Who's Who in the Wars?

Postby Hogan » Thu Sep 16, 2010 6:36 pm

It has been suggested that the various Wars located in the Crossover Wars Central Hub, should be expanded with a "Who's Who" to ease any new reader's way into the chaos that was and is the Wars... and there might be something about it!
The "Who's Who?" should be a separate additon to each part of the war, giving a short desription of the characters (as well as avatars and authors) taking part in said storyline, a little of their history, their comic etc., enough to make a new reader understand the storline without plowing through all the comics which lend the characters back then...

At the moment I am working on fixing the layout for the part of the Squirrel Wars and the Adult Wars, again in order to make the reading of the separate plotlines easier, and since those two fucntions as the template for rest of the plotlines of the Wars, these are the ones we, for now, will concentrate on with the trials of a who's who... if anyone want to chime in :)
... suggestions for changes to the pages in the Hub itself go here

I am myself pretty much too swamped to do anything of this myself, but if people here in this thread would whip up a fitting suggestion for the various who's who, I will add it to the Hub :cheers:

Who's Who in the Adult Wars?

Postby MOrganArt » Fri Sep 17, 2010 12:38 pm

For The Adult Wars

Terry S. Dix is a witch-in-training as well as a lingerie shop owner from M.Organ Art. She met the Owner of Pr0nCrest Studios when he visited her shop. M.Organ owed her a favor when she turned him back to his normal self in a previous storyline.

M.Organ is a horny dragon & artist from M.Organ Art.

Miss Violence is a mercenary from M.Organ Art. He hired her because he rightly suspected that he & Terry might be in over their heads.

Throckmorton P.Oodle is an enemy of M.Organ. He believes ground up dragon penis will help him in a spell to become rich.

Forum Wars

ChroniclerC was an active player on the Mayhem side of the Forum Wars (and a major plotter in the events in Mayhem that followed the Wars, but that's a different story), but was a minor character in illustrated side. His only noteworthy role in the comics was in his ongoing feud with the the EOU double-agent, Death Bunny.

For the record, I'm totally cool with my role as a minor character, I'm honored to be featured even that much. Plus, I got to go toe-to-toe with one of the major Overlord agents in the final battle. :D (Even if it meant leaving the battle with a silvered blade in my side.)

I believe the intent is to tell new readers who the characters were, & any pertinent backstory, before the wars began.

Basically someone who only read a few of the featured comics would suddenly get exposed to a whole bunch of unfamiliar characters, so the idea is to give newcomers an idea of who is who so they could follow the story & understand major points that might be tied to character interactions, or older stories, that they might not have read.

The Forum Wars can be an... interesting challenge to break down. I think first we have to describe the three groups.

"Bunnies are forumites for the Comic El Goonish Shive."

"Boardies are forumites for the comic College Roomies From Hell!!!"

"Wotchers are forumites for the comic The Wotch."

Followed by some description of the different groups, what is Mayhem, what is FLEET, etc.

Then probably a list of participants under which group they belonged to.

So I believe you'd be under Bunnies & probably of brief description of yourself (wolf? werewolf? something else?) & how you fit in with your forum.

At least, that's my understanding of this project.

I dunno. The forum-side of the Forum Wars got... complicated. I just wanted to give the quick and dirty version for people who are just reading through the comics (and possibly explain why the appearance of a gray fox on a screen perks up DB for battle). I could probably write up a more detailed version for people wanting to investigate deeper, although I fear for such a person's sanity.

Everything about the Wars got complicated as we went on :)

... hence why I heeded this suggestion about putting up a Who's Who on the various Sub-Hubs, pages that should give a quick Cliff's Note about the various characters showing up there, character pages boiled down so to speak.

The information is supposed to be from before the characters were affected by the war, or that particular storyline ... though the entries for Forumites might be different... I dunno, I'll blow that bridge up and rebuild it when we come that far :)

I've added the first basic Who's Who of the Adult Wars ... comments and especially additions and/or corrections are more than welcome... and is actually a prerequestie for this part being updated ;)

Also, mugshots of the size of 100x100 on the various characters, if anyone want to make them, are also more than welcome! :cheers:

I actually found the censored images instead of pics funny. :lol:

There should be entries for Diamond of Action Porn (no longer on the web), Claire, Tracy & Bruno of Lovemagic.

I think that's all the major players, anyway.

I can insert them as Anigif it need be... changing between the mugshot and the censored image... ;)

I can add them when I do the next update... anyone who will help along with some descriptions?

*snicker* What about The Owner of Pr0nCrest? :wink:

As regards the Squirrel Wars you can use my avatar pic for Ratatosk, it's already 100x100.

I did wonder about what I should do about Gertrude & Brunhilda since they spend most of the Squirrel Wars as squirrels. Then again, could you do that thing where a picture changes when someone moves their mouse over it? Then I could just send you pics of the girls normal & squirrelified.

I don't know about the mouse-over option, that will require me to find some reference-techniques, but I can do an automatically switching animated gif of it...

Allright, updated the Who's Who on Adult Wars with the so far suggested entries... now for something to put in the entries... ;)

Also added a Who's Who for Squirrelwars along with the image for our favorite megalomaniac Squirrel Godlingthing... as a start ;)

Also, since some suggestions for images to change were made, a suggestion for how to do it:

How does that look?

For the WCA Hunt

Zog - Pilot of the ship Trzzqadekka. Likes to get drunk.

Emsi - Mission Commander of the Trzzqadekka. Can't understand why she was given such a useless crew.

Sten - Communications officer of the Trzzqadekka. Big eater.

Znooph - Engineer of the Trzzqadekka. Oddly familiar with seedy establishments.

Someone should contact Fesworks so he can write something for his characters for the Squirrel Wars, Fes & Ernst should have a listing. Not sure about Kern & the bear.

What War was it that Fes, Ernst & Nemi were involved in?

For that matter Hogan, you, Caitlin, Matt & Aggie should have a Who's Who listing somewhere.

Additionally, should we continue the masquerade of pretending he existed prior to the Wars & give Catnap a listing?

Thanks! I will be adding them as well as the mugshots you send to the Who's Who for the WCA Hunt when I update that part tonight! :cheers:

I will see if I can get a hold of him.

Mostly the Forum Wars, but else all ove the place :)

Uhoh... I KNEW there was a drawback to this idea :|

Pretending? You mean the Krayon Kitty Klub isn't a real, if dead, comic?

More like pretending Catnap had a life before being a part of the EOU... :?

Okay, updated with a Who's Who for the WCA Hunt with mugshots courtesy of KAM ... still need more shots and descriptions though, so keep them coming!
... as well as any comments/suggestions you can think of ;)

[Jedi handwave]Of course it's a real comic. You just misread what I wrote. Move along now.[/Jedi handwave] :wink:

The character's name is Znooph, not Znoop.

On the Squirrel Wars page, the switching appearances of Gertrude & Brunhilda looks really good! :cheers:

Thanks! :cheers:

On that note, just added description and mugshots, courtesy of Mark Mekkes, to the WCA Hunt Who's Who for the crew of the Entire Prize... and I can also give notice that, due to the "old version" of Zortic not having been incorporated into the new site of Zortic's yet, the links will not get fixed for some time (I'm not going to first change them all to internal, then back again later...).
I might include a note of that on the front page until further notice...
