    Hey G_W you making our first video yet? could it be mysterious? (and give away nothing)

    the U.N. main forum needs some life!

    we would need a title (EEN was awsome for Epsilon)
    Maybe ISN?

    lol - ok - let me stew on it.
    I'll see if I can find some good mysterious type music.

    Do we want another newscast type program like EEN was at the beginning? Or just a serial video thing like it evolved to at the end? Something different entirely?

    I don't know what we could possibly make at this point that would be related to the game and not give anything away? All I can imagine is something that is team-centric rather than game-centric...but I might be missing something.

    Either way -- none of the other teams even know what SANCTA means, do they? I remember when we posted our name (team naming thread) people we joking about what SANCTA meant...this might be an awesome opportunity to show them. Just a quick thought before I log out...

    There is an onion story about a parade of ninjas which, every year, passes through a town unseen. You could do something on that, if you want.

    That's one of my all-time favorite Onion stories.
    Though some of their election year stuff was pretty awesome also.

    We could try for an "Onion-like" newscast. Highly sarcastic news presented with a straight face. But that might be setting the bar a little higher than my abilities will allow... and/or a bit too clever for our own good.

    We could take a stab at it if the team really wants to.

    Another (random) thought I had was to try a "ninja vlogger" type broadcast. You know, one of those video blogger things that was suddenly "cool" with the rise of you-tube. :dunno:

    I liked EEN's format of it. Maybe you could do some sort of spin off from that?

    We could do something celebrating our victory over a lion or barb. That sort of thing is so common and anonymous as to not give anything about or situation away but can be a good excuse for a news story.

    Or maybe do something about upgrading our palace a la Civ I.

    I had an idea for a fun "kick-off" kind of video.

    I don't want to say too much about it and spoil the surprise ;)
    Tactically, I'm hoping it earns us a little good will with the other teams... like, "hey, these guys are fun" kind of a thing. I'm probably over-thinking that... but at least it can't hurt. :lol:

    The video is storyboarded out (very simple) and is about 25% done. I hope to get time to finish it today or tomorrow.

    Stay tuned!
    :salute:


    @1889 - I think that's a great idea for when we launch the actual "news" broadcasts... but I'd really rather wait until I've got at least 2 or 3 news stories before I put in the effort. If someone founds a religion or builds a wonder or something... then we'll be more ready to go with the news. imo

    quick update for all of you - the video is coming along really well, I think. I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out.

    I'm not going to get it finished today, sadly - but I'm on track to have it done tomorrow. :bounce:

    There's nothing even remotely spoilerish about the video [no info that you can't get from reading the public UN threads] - so I may post it directly into the UN forum... unless there are any objections to that?
