Yes, I know the Cameo Caper of 2009 is still running for some of the participants, but for this annual event it seems more like the norm than the exception... but perhaps we can, in the meantime, take a look at the possibilities for a Halloween Cameo Caper again here in 2010?
Now, continuing the now old tradition, we will once again try and get a multi-webcomic cameo caper running through the month of October, culminating on Halloween Eve where we hopefully will have one major webcomic-party for everybody participating!
Now, to get down to the specifics... the Halloween Cameo Caper is an event centered on the 31th of October where characters from all interested comics (no kind, style or hosts bared) are invited to one hell of a party in a place to be chose... in this thread as a matter of facts. The original concept is that, at the date of Halloween (or the day closest to, taking updates schedules into accounting), the particpating artists post a strip (canon, none-canon, filler etc.) on their site or here in the forum, showing their characters and as many characters from other comics as possible, having fun and celebrating the event at the chosen place!
Thats the concept you sign up for! One strip at the day of Halloween
... BUT... nothing prevents any and all participant from creating whole storylines centered around the event, storylines the go way before and beyond the month of October and Halloween Eve, and there are nothing to prevent the participating webcomics from joining up and forming crossovers with each other for the sake of the event, exactly like it has been done before! Actually... its recommended to do so, but not a demand
However, so farthere is not signing up for anything... first we have to decide where to host the Caper of 2010!
The first year the Caper went to the town of Shelterville in the old Wild West, 2007 went Disneyland orbiting a faraway planet in the near future, and in 2008 a a "local" zombie-filled mall was throughoutly thrashed... not to mention the chaos in the old mysteriously haunted castle of Overlook in 2009...
Where shall we go with the Caper this year?
The following is a suggested list of unused options taken from the polls of the previous years for places to host the party.
Ancient China ... and a Pie Fight!
20's Chicago ... and a Pie Fight!
Salvador Daliesk World ... and a Pie Fight!
Earth's Core ... and a Pie Fight!
The Middle Ages ... and a Pie Fight!
Under the Sea ... and a Pie Fight!
A Forumverse ... and a Pie Fight!
The Austrian Alps... and a Pie Fight!
Spaceship... and a Pie Fight!
Anyone else who can think of a fantastic and interesting idea about where to host the Cameo Caper of 2010? This thread is for suggestions and discussions, and you don't have to even think about signing up for the Cameo Caper just yet, just feel free to take part in the discussion!
The discussion will come to an end at the 31th of March, after which a poll will be set up, featuring the 10 most hot topics of the thread for everyone to vote on to get the final result...
When the setting has been chosen, a more detailed campaign for the exact location will be provided... so therefore DO come up with various ideas while suggesting and voting... everything helps to make the setting as memorable as the previous ones!
Also, no matter if you plan on participating or not, you are welcome to give your 5 cents with regards to ideas for the place, setting and everything else... its appreciated!
The first deadline has been reached and the poll for voting on this years setting is up!
Remember, anyone can cast their vote, no matter if they plan on participating in the event or not, and the more who give their votes, the better! No sign-ups for the Caper is possible as of yet!
Poll will close at the end of May, giving people enough time to sign up and start planning before the event goes up.
