The Halloween Cameo Caper 2015... where to go?

Postby Hogan » Fri Dec 26, 2014 1:34 pm

True to tradition the Halloween Cameo Caper of 2014 is still ongoing (not to mention we still have a straggler from the 2012 Caper...) and we haven't event gotten to the new year yet, but I found the Christmas Vacations would be a good time to bring up this subject since people usually have time to sit down and give it some thoughts, so here we go....where shall we send people for the 2015 Caper? :cheers:

But first, for any newcomer to the idea of the Caper... What's a Halloween Cameo Caper?

The Cameo Caper is a, by now, old annuarly tradition (2015 will be the 9th year running) where artists and authors alike get together, trying to get a multi-webcomic (no kind, style or hosts bared) cameo caper running through the month of October (though starting before and taking it ways beyond is not unheard of... far from), expected to culminate on Halloween Eve, October the 31st) where, hopefully, all participating characters will get together for one large Halloween Webcomic Party!

Thats the original and basic concept and the thought 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 in an appropiate thread here in the Dragonboard forum, showing their characters and as many characters from other comics as possible, having fun and celebrating the Halloween in the chosen setting.

Thats the concept you agree for by signing up! One strip at the day of Halloween! No more, no less... :)

BUT... nothing prevents, and nothing HAS so far prevented, any and all participant from creating whole storylines centered around the event, storylines that sometimes start way before and go way beyond the month of October and Halloween Eve.
Furthermore 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 recommended, but by no means a demand ;)

The previous years have been varied but usually great experiences for the participants, and we hope to see many new and old faces in the 2015 Cameo Caper, getting together for yet another memorable event! :cheers:


But first, before anyone signs up for anything... we need to decide where to host the Caper of 2015!?

In 2006 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 NCS Nostromummy a few last days of their life to remember, in 2011 Time finally caught up with the secluded and Dinosaur filled Valley in the Hillsfar Mountains.
2012 brought murder to the interdimensional nexus of Tyrion, in2013 the Sugar Rush brought characters and War to Candyland and in 2014 characters travelled to Kokotomo, the mysterious Fantasy Island!

Which place shall know the "honor" of hosting this year's Caper?

The following is a list of hithero suggested places to hold the Caper which didn't make it the previous years:

    20's Chicago
    Ancient China
    CameoComic / The Dragonboard
    Earth's Core
    The Middle Ages
    Battle of the Bands Setting
    In a Pyramid / Ancient Egypt
    Under the Sea/ R'lyeh
    The Northpole / Antarctic
    Pirate Bay
    Comic Convention
    Ponyland
    Lavender Town
    Abandoned Summer Camp
    The Net
    Oz

At this point, feel free to cast your preliminary votes for any and all of the above suggested themes, and feel free to come up with any imaginable idea that can suggest a fantastic and interesting ideal setting where to host the Cameo Caper of 2015!

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 25th 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 and themes for the setting all while suggesting and voting... everything helps to make the setting as memorable as the previous ones!

Also, again, 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:

Allright, its finally time for the voting!

The list of suggestions have been pruned of the some of the old suggestions which never really managed to get any real votes, and some of the latest suggestions have been added instead! :-)

As always, anyone associated 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!

In addition it will also be possible to farvote from various other webcomics forums in which I will try to spread the the legend of the Capers and ask for people's participation in choosing the event, hopefully luring in a few participators along the way :D

Sign-up's for the Caper CAN be done at this point, but please don't do so unless you are 100% sure you can participate no matter the setting chosen!

Poll will close at the end of June, giving people roughly a couple of months to sign up and start planning before the event starts in earnest.

Happy Voting!

Happy New Year, Hogan! (And all those reading this post)
I'm thankful I have at least some time to finish my contribution to the 2014 Caper before signing up for the 2015 one.

I noticed we have Ancient China as a setting, but not Ancient Greece. We could meet the gods and titans (not those titans) on Mount Olympus, or get into some of the battles between Athens and Sparta (300, anyone?). Maybe run a marathon or participate in the original Olympics.

Happy New Year to you (and everybody else) too VW! :cheers:

Good suggestions already! :)

I wouldn't mind inviting people for a visit to Denmark, either Viking/Iron Age or modern, I believe I could find enough to keep them occupied at all times :mrgreen:

To put it mildly... considering the tricky minds of the people who've participated in the Capers so far :)

But do you have enough rooms? :wink:

I can even see the opening. Fox & female friend getting closer, closer, closer... and then a whole bunch of weirdos show up for a Cameo Caper cock block. :mrgreen: :cheers:

You could even get Fox running again--chasing people out of his house (unsuccessfully, of course).

Or why there is royalty and her son running around, and a giant in the backyard (or front yard?) Or people watching to see whether the PS3/4, XBOX 360/One or Wii/Wii U get turned on... or if the dreaded X-Play Cube makes another appearance.

Just over eight months to go (or maybe six for the beginnings of the caper).

Less than one week to come up with the last suggestions and comments regarding possible settings for the 2015 Halloween Caper! :cheers:

Looking at the earlier posts I think it's already been decided. :wink:

I wonder if Fox's home insurance covers Caper-related damage? :cheers:

Looks like maybe I should make sure I get that model of the house / floor plan done sooner rather than later. >.>

Good thing we didn't bet on what would come in second. There was a four-way tie there. :cheers:

Well, well, well... the poll has now officially closed (actually it has been for a couple of days) and it looks like we'll be visiting Hey Fox! this year! :o

... okay, well, it wasn't that much a surprise since the poll has be stall for most of the month of June, but I digress that I have been unable to get around and post about the Caper in other forums like I did last year, this way we missed out on a lot of "offsite" votes as well as the attention to the Caper that would have brought :-|

But now we are going to go wreck Fox' place this year, having out very own 5-inch party there! :D

I'll get hold of Fox (for co-authorship of the Caper) and come up with a setting and invitaion asap, and then its time to sign up and get this thing going for yet another year! :mrgreen:

But DO spread the words of the Caper around, new faces and new blood is always welcome!
