DYOS X Part II: Plans Within Plans

featuring CivGeneral, choxorn, e350tb, lord_joakim, mythmonster2, Perfection, Thorvald of Lym

Welcome to Part II of DYOS 10. This thread is dedicated to more complex plots and interactions. Note that anybody can contribute to this thread, however an understanding of the previous DYOS instalment is strongly recommended. The DYOS tradition continues fresh in DRAW Your Own Story XI: THE HAAAAX!

Rules of DYOS
Amended 17 July 2013

* Allow for at least one comic by a different poster between contributions when the thread is strongly active.
* No grievous harm or radical plot change involving another poster's character without said poster's consent.
* Limit main character roster to as small a group as feasible. Minor characters unlimited.
* No flaming, period. Report infractions to a moderator.
* Keep plot devices reasonable. Avoid 'wonder weapons' and fantastic twists if they serve no greater purpose.
* NO time travel, and NO parallel universes.
* 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!

Will there be a translation for the phone call?

Anyway, in the "Featuring", you forgot Kan, CivCube, tailless, Captain2, and, what the heck, Stylesrj.

Just out of curiosity, what City did you landed in? Since Right now I am making planet fall along with Thorvald to meet up with a survivor of the attack. I was thinking eather Washington D.C. or Philadelphia.

Good comic Stylesrj, but you should have cut a bit on the edges of the thumbleweed. It looks much better when it's a thumbleweed, not a square.

Oh buggrit, beaten to it.

OK, this takes place before CivGeneral's comic. Any objections welcome.

Small thing, we can sorta see through the guy in the last panel, but great comic, as always! Love how he's stuffing his bleeding hand into his back pocket in the last panel. I'll get around to making a comic of my own sometime, perhaps when the plot has a suitable time for me to drop in and join the guys.

I sense a new character in Lord Joakim's hand (not in a litteral sense, but in a card game kind of way). I'm still working on my comic ATM. Now I have to figure out which model to use for your, normal self, within Garry's Mod .
