Ok, this is kinda like Spaced "Perfect Story" topic..but in guessing game format and kinda experimental at first --- so this thread maybe Locked occasionally once someone arrives at the correct answer (this will give the new mods er, including me..some work to do)

Guidelines:

1.Each week, starting Mondays, a mod or one of the New Gods(Plotter) will be asked to post their "storyline"...for everyone (Participants) to guess.

2. The "storyline" will/should just give the main characters, villains, writer/artist (if it doesnt give away much) and a short 25 or less words about the plot...but not the ending ok??

3. Participants will only be given one guess, and one hint each (a total of 3 can be posted by the Plotter for the storyline if asked) . First one to post the guess correctly wins! Answers must be complete arc/series Title and/or issue no(s.)

4.Mods will monitor answer posts (including edits), and once the Plotter declares the winning answer or once the deadline is reached by Sundays..(thread is locked...and the game begins again)

5. Prize: Winning guesser, gets Karma points...one mod or draradda will award it (that means 5 kpts instantly)...now if no participant guessed it correctly by deadline..then the Plotter gets the points!

Of course, the Super Mod will validate the question and the matched answer if truly correct before the prize is awarded...

Simple enough right?? Watcha think? Comment below if you want it clarified before we begin next week.

We'll have to have a "No Wiki" rule for the players otherwise it'll be too easy :)

Uhmmm...we "don't"...everyone can "wiki" themselves silly...but the challenge for the "Plotter" here is to make the "storyline" as "obscure and un-wiki-able" as possible...(that's why naming the writer/artist is optional)

Remember, the game is not only for the participants but also for the Plotter who submitted the "storyline"...since he/she gets the kpts if ever no one guesses it correctly by deadline.

Well, actually the only exception rule is that...you Spacey as SuperMod, cannot join the game sorry...you'll act solely as "arbiter and verifier"...In fact, those interested to be the Plotters has to submit/PM their "storyline" entries for the games to you (including the answer) before the next round..you get to choose which one to use...and the mod that will monitor the game.

So something like this would be acceptable:

Spoiler: show
Writer: Mark Verheiden
Atrist: Ron Randall
Plot: After a spacecraft crash lands in Siberia, US and Russian forces rush to salvage the advanced technology. However the alien occupant has other ideas.

Answer required: full series title

Uhmmm...sure...but then you have to be prepared to answer up to 3 hints that participants may ask (each one can only ask 1) if it ever goes that far...ex. Publisher, general year published, was it colored or black in white etc...First one to post answer, gets the points...


Spoiler: show
Predator: Cold War

The Russkies and Americanies...kinda gave it away, and putting the complete writer/author name kinda makes it even easier (maybe initials would be fine....sorry...

Ok let me try one:

Writer: JMS
Artist: GF
Plot: A somewhat much darker re-telling of the origins of "super-powered beings" similar to major characters of DC's JLA but more related to current events, leading to devastating consequences.

Hmmmm...Image

That does make sense....yeah, maybe we can have it os an "always on top" announcement of sorts then every week a new one is posted..and after it is successfully answered and Karma credits are given "locked" then "deleted" to make way for the next one...
