DRAW Your Own Story X: The Avatar Wars

Welcome to the new age of DYOS! Before you begin, perhaps you would like to look back on the Good Ol' Days?

DYOS 1
DYOS 2 - Deleted by Will of the Mods
DYOS 3
DYOS 4
DYOS 5
DYOS 6
DYOS 7
DYOS 8
DYOS 9

CURRENT STORY CONCLUDING: See the Consulate for discussion of next thread



After the last few disastrous threads, DYOS has been fortified with a host of new rules, in the hope of making your experience more enjoyable. We also feature a consul (see below) to try and keep DYOS fluent and fun. If you have any questions, ask the consul!

Rules of DYOS

* A poster can contribute ONE comic every 12 hours, and no more than ONE comic by the same poster at a time.
* No direct harm or spontaneous plot change involving another poster's character without said poster's consent.
* Maximum of 3 main characters per poster. Minor characters unlimited.
* Posters may use armies on the condition that they do not involve assaults against other posters. No army 'heroes', either.
* No flaming, period. Report infractions to a moderator.
* No unreasonable weapons or plot twists.
* NO time travel, NO parallel universes, and NO MAGIC.
* NO POWERGAMING!
* Nothing forbidden by the CFC rules.
* Above all else: RESPECT THY FELLOW FORUMERS!

Anyone who so wishes may contribute to the story. All artistic styles are accepted.
Please put effort into your cartoon. Avoid cheaply-done Cut-and-Paste, if possible.
Above all else, have FUN!!

The DYOS Consul

DYOS is now run by a consul. Any forumer who posts a cartoon is automatically entered into the consulate, and can debate on issues relating to the story. To avoid cluttering this thread, discussions will occur in a separate thread devoted solely to the consul (link below). To pass a motion, a majority vote of 66% of the consulate is required. If, however, a week has passed and no further action has been taken regarding the motion, the vote will be tallied as it stands. Members are suspended from the consulate if they have not contributed to the story for a week (they are automatically reinstalled when they post a new cartoon). If you will be inactive for a prolonged period of time, please be courteous and notify the consul beforehand.

The consul oversees the following:
* Planning and organizing the story
* Placing posters on probation (see below)
* Expelling posters from the consulate (and thus, involvement in the story)
* Decisions regarding the future of the thread itself

If a poster has violated any of the rules, the consulate will vote to place the perpetrator on probation.
1st Probation: 2 days between comics
2nd Probation: 3 days between comics
3rd Probation: 5 days between comics
If the offender continues to break the rules, the consul may suspend the offender indefinitely.

Note that the intent of the consul is not to control the story's contributors, but to improve plot coherency, and hopefully the story overall. Whether or not you are a contributor or observer, please feel free to voice your recommendations. We're here as much for your enjoyment as our own!

In English:

Our story begins with each forumer facing his or her own coup-d'état. Tired of being treated as mere pixels, past avatars have banded together to overthrow their former master. What happens next is up to you...

And I start the suspense... (I hope I'm not advancing the plot too much. This could be the kick off something is happening in CFC)

Well here's how my avatars and their coup come into the picture. Warning: Dialogue and stuff has been crammed at the end


(I don't think I'll cram stuff at the end like that again. Not good for the people)

So now I'm in the story with my avatars against me in a good explanation

Just dropping by. Good job guys, I can see you are actually working on the comics this time I'll post a contribution soon, but as Thorvald has said, I'm busy and won't post habitually.

Best of luck in maintaining a stable plot.

Well here's my comic where I try to interact with the DYOS Consul


(I'm sticking to the Starcraft Campaign Editor until I can get images to work in-game)

I've changed my avatar... again... but what of the old one?
