Looks good @Clever Hans, you can go ahead and add John Tatum to the Char section whenever you get a chance. Welcome to the godforsaken (internet) rasslin' business.

@BangoSkank Fine idea for a character but yeah, make sure it's formatted to match the character sheet and the general flavor of the RP. Things like race, weapons, and equipment don't really fit the vibe at all. Also, a take-it-or-leave-it suggestion: what if he had a normal first name to go with his normal last name... that way "Danger" could literally be his middle name...

Would make a great catchphrase too. And we know how much wrestling fans love catchphrases.

UPCOMING EVENT
UPW Showdown | September 4th 2019
From Underground to Undisputed...

Originally known as Underground Pro Wrestling, UPW began as a showcase for some of the top independent wrestling promotions in North America. Under the UPW banner, an annual event called Rise Up was launched, offering a unique amalgam of wrestling styles and featuring matches from a variety of different regional promotions. It was an opportunity for die-hard wrestling fans across the country to gather together in one place, and see live wrestling that was not available in their local area. What was initially a one night show grew into a three day event, with a fan convention and multiple nights of pro wrestling action. Rise Up became a phenomenon. Major sponsors and television executives started to take notice.

Unfortunately, greater money being at stake led to greater friction between promoters. Everyone wanted a bigger slice of the pie. It was a story as old as wrestling itself, a story dating back to the carnival days: dishonest promoters stabbing each other in the back and lining their own pockets at the expense of the talent. Veteran wrestlers had seen this story play out time and time again, wrestlers like "The Real Deal" Randy Steel. However, unlike the others, "The Real Deal" was actually in a position to do something about it.

Having retired from the big leagues several years earlier, "The Real Deal" was now known as "The Dealmaker," boasting a rather impressive investment portfolio. Randy Steel purchased the UPW brand, and contacted many of the top wrestlers on the independent scene. Almost overnight, UPW was reorganized into Undisputed Pro Wrestling, a singular promotion featuring the absolute best of the best. Randy vowed to treat the wrestlers differently, offering superior contracts with comprehensive benefits. His business acumen combined with his history as a respected in-ring worker made "The Dealmaker" the perfect man for the job. Based on the past success of Rise Up, Randy was able to negotiate a lucrative television deal for UPW. On Wednesday September 4th, 2019, Undisputed Pro Wrestling will launch the very first episode of it's weekly television program, UPW Showdown, live in prime time. UPW is now a beacon for elite wrestling talent seeking international television exposure. Wrestlers from around the world have flocked to the promotion to compete for honour and glory against the very best in the business.

The pro wrestling landscape will never be the same.

Structure of the RP

Welcome to Undisputed Pro Wrestling! This RP will be structured like an "efederation." Rather than being a GM, I will take on the role of "booker" or matchmaker. My job is to outline the matches and segments for each wrestling show, collaborating with players as to the overall direction of the promotion. The players are the real stars, taking on the roles of the actual wrestlers, and RPing their individual matches and segments. The game will follow a basic THREE-STEP CYCLE for each show.
1. Booker Announces the Card (OOC)

As the booker, I will post a list of segments for our next show here in the OCC thread. It will be pinned at the top. This will be rather bare bones, who beats who, maybe a couple bullet points for each with some ideas. Our promotion features a one hour weekly television show, UPW Showdown, which will feature about 5-6 segments. Some will be matches, some will be non-wrestling segments like promos or backstage angles.
2. Players Post Their Segment RPs (IC)

The players look over the card, and write up their RPs for the segment in which their wrestler is booked. These are posted in the IC thread when finished. They don't have to be posted in order, so for example if the player in segment #2 finishes their RP first, they can just go ahead and post it. Of course, our roster will not just include PCs, there will be a bunch of NPCs needed to pad it out as well. These NPCs will be based on classic, easy-to-recognize wrestling archetypes and I'll be sure to have character sheets for them. With a mix of PCs and NPCs on the show, there are a few different possibilities for matches:

PC vs. NPC Match: The player writes up the match, simple enough.

NPC vs. NPC Match: These will happen rarely. But if they do, then I'll take care of the RP for the match unless a PC is involved by interfering or something like that. In that case, the player will be responsible.

PC vs. PC Match: The loser of the match will write up the first half, the winner of the match writes the second half and finish. Requires a bit of give-and-take, just like actual wrestling. Since the PCs are the main stars, these will be the "bigger" matches.

Non-Wrestling Segment: The player being interviewed, cutting the promo, or otherwise starring in the segment will writes the RP for it. Again, pretty straightforward.
3. Booker Posts the Final Show (IC)

Once all of the RPs have been posted I will gather them and put them into one large post, in the proper order. I may also add some bits of "commentary" between segments to help with flow. This is the finished product. I will post the completed show in the IC thread, and pin it to the top of the IC thread as well so it's easy to find and follow.

Character Creation

Due to the nature of this RP, a committed player base is required. In order to create a more expansive roster, players will be allow to create two characters each. Players may also create a dedicated tag team, which counts as one character. Please have a look at the roster before creating your character to ensure that they stand out from the others. Pro wrestling works best with a colourful cast of unique characters, when everybody looks and acts the same it sucks. Also keep in mind the balance between babyfaces and heels on the roster, we don't want things to be lopsided. If you would like to apply, fill out a character sheet and post in in the OOC thread. Please try to stick to the template. For images, I recommend that you just use a picture of an actual pro wrestler. When your wrestler is approved, you can go ahead on post the sheet in the official Characters thread and I will update the roster list. I will also be posting some NPC sheets in the Characters section.

Alright cool. Ideally we'd want a couple more people to show interest here before posting the big RP thread (so if you know anybody...) or I might just say fuck it, post the thread, and see what happens.
