Halloween Cameo Caper 2011... where shall it be?

Postby Hogan » Thu Feb 10, 2011 11:03 pm

Never be it said that we are not up to supporting chaos, fun, mayhem and interaction between webcomics... so, its time to test the waters and see if anyone is up for a Halloween Cameo Caper in 2011!

And off course, the best way to test waters... is to jump right in and hope its not shark-infested!

Continuing the now old tradition, The Halloween Cameo Caper is all about trying to get a multi-webcomic cameo caper running through the month of October, culminating on Halloween Eve where, hopefully, everyone 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 specifc place, usually quite out of the ordinary, with as many different characters attending.

The basic and 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's 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 only recommended, but not a demand ;)

Now, at this point there is no 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 to Disneyland orbiting a faraway planet in the near future, in 2008 a a zombie-filled mall was throughoutly thrashed, 2009 gave hauntings of castle of Overlook a bad reputation and 2010 gave the crew and passengers of the spaceship Nostromummy a few last days of their life to remember...

Where shall we take the Caper this year to top that?

The following is a suggested list of unused options taken from the polls of the previous years for places to host the party.

20's Chicago
Ancient China
The Austrian Alps
CameoComic
Earth's Core
The Middle Ages
In a Pyramid
Salvador Daelisk's World
Under the Sea

Feel free to come up with any imaginable idea that can suggest a fantastic and interesting idea setting where to host the Cameo Caper of 2011! This thread is for collecting those suggestions as well as any 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 choosing the place!

The discussion will come to an end at the 30th of April, after which point a poll will be set up, a poll featuring the 10 hottest 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!

------------------------------------------------
Edit:

And now the deadline for suggestions have been reached, the poll is up and its time to vote for this years setting!
As always remember that anyone on this forum 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 starts in earnest.

Happy voting!

I made a joke on another thread about the slogan for this year being "Halloween Cameo Caper 2011 Taking It to... well, you know..." which was a reference to This Is Spinal Tap, so what about a Battle Of The Bands type setting?

I mentioned to Toshubi that there was a thread for where the next Caper would be held & he said, "In a Blizzard! Or a Void! Make it easy for an artist to draw!" :wink:

I like the idea of 20's Chicago. Although I was just reminded of one of my favorite settings, a Snowed-in Cabin Murder Mystery! I wouldn't have to draw trees! They'd be all white!

I also might join in, since I've got months in advance, haha.

Aaah... this brings to mind the epic Marvel battle in Alpha Flight where a battle took place during a snowstorm with only the textboubles were show for several pages... :P

I could go with this being added to the list of options:

"Wooden Log Cabin in the Mountains... snowstorms optionable!"

How about the dwarven caves, with the lights out? We could get Irregular WebComics to join in ...

I can;t say that I'll for sure be able to join this with my main story. But I'll try to do something via a side strip. I have no preference on location, but may vote later if locations get narrowed down.

Hey!

So i haven't been around since Shelterville, but I'm hoping to get back into it this year! Anyway, I like the idea of a very genera/theme specific setting. The Western town, the space station, the Castle. All of these things are easy to throw in a few identifiers for without having to get too elaborate, but also allow for easy character in-and-outs. IE: A cabin in the woods is easy enough to draw, but seclusion makes for difficult walk-on/walk-by cameos.

Personally I like the idea of the castle/mediaeval setting. I'm having trouble thinking of any other specifics, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

I don't know how my comic will be or feel like by October, but I'd love to do something like this. D: My web series is based on the issue-format, though. I wonder how I'll have to arrange this... Maybe a brief mini-series?

Why not just call it 'Minecraft?'

I hope I'm not the only one who just found that funny. n_n
