Wrestling fans: Could I interest you in an e-fed?
« on: October 18, 2009, 01:03:24 PM »
So, I'm recruiting people for an e-fed on the Progressive Boink forums, and I know there's some people here who are both wrestling fans and talented writers, so I figured I'd see if any of you guys are interested. Now, if you've been in an e-fed before, it probably sucked. "Promos" were glorified play scenes with celebrities and kooky violence and stupid shit that you'd never see on a wrestling program. The characters were vague, they had 30 finishers, they were Mark Briscoe in clothes from Gadzooks doing Cuthroat Backflip Stunners and it fucking BLEW.

The Pro Graps Association is different. PGA is awesome. It's funny and realistic and colorful, and is better booked then any real wrestling fed right now. The guy running is, B, is wicked talented and entertaining, and he runs a fair and fun show.

Even if you're not interested in participating, I'd still recommend reading the shows we've done so far, it's really some of the best wrestling out there (if wrestling is fake, and this is fake wrestling, that must mean it's real!)

If you like what you see, here's the Progressive Boink forum where all the players hang out and discuss.

And here's some important threads to get you started:

I know it's a lot of reading, but take it from me, this is the most rewarding online roleplaying things I've ever encounted. If this looks like something for you, start a Progressive Boink account, send a private message to B, and he'll lead you through the rest.

Tell him Greg sent ya!

Bumping for great justice. PGA is still awesome, but we need new players, stat. If ANYBODY is even the LEAST BIT interested in this, contact me here. I can answer any questions you might have about it. Also, we have a wiki now!

Seriously, our fake fake wrestling is even better then anything real fake wrestling has to offer!

Hm.  I'll give it a read. 

I read a whole bunch.  Man, that is entirely too much work.  :)

Everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, would help you catch up. This is seriously one of the funnest groups of people I've ever worked with. You don't need to read everything right off the bat, a show or two and then make your own character. Really, I only work on this maybe a half an hour a week, once you get into it it's pretty easy. And shitloads of fun!

I admit, I'm kinda interested.  The character I immediately thought of was an English Gentleman Bastard, but that seems to have been taken.  I'll read a bit more and if I decide to, I'll introduce myself (as myself) on the board.  :)

So, mrbasehart, are you still looking at things, or are you not interested? Because I'd really, really love it if you were interested. :D

I'm going to beg off for now, Greg.  Thanks for the offer, though.  :)

Bumping this because

A) we just had Crowning A Champion's Waist '10, our equivalent of Wrestlemania, marking the end of Season One and the beginning of Season Two.
B) one of the players just released a WWF No Mercy mod with all the PGA characters in it.

You sure you guys don't want in on this?  ;D

When I was in e-feds, oh so many moons ago, I picked the fed based on what the application looked like... any chance you could link me to it?

If I like it, then The Scorpion might just come out of retirement...

Sorry, I don't have it available. I remember it being pretty simple. What kind of things are you looking for in an e-fed?

I'm not. The reason I usually chose it based on application was because I usually chose the feds that made me actually think more about the wrestler I was playing.

PGA is a very story-and-character oriented. You and which ever players you're working with at the time write the promos and storylines and character motivations and stuff. Things like move lists and finishers can be adjusted at pretty much anytime, and B, the "dungeon master" of sorts, writes the matches themselves.

Sounds like fun.  I did one once.  I'm not that into wrestling but a friend was and got me into it.  I was Brother Superior, who is so arrogant and confident in his unbeatablity (perhaps incorrectly so, though he is pretty talented), he insist on handicaps in each match: handcuffs, blindfolds, straightjackets, Chinese finger traps.
