    Re: Fight Night 20 October Promo Discussion Thread

    I feel a lot more confident about my promo this week. Definitely giving a smoke and mirrors type vibe to my character. I'm stretching out the explanation of who he truly is to make it a week-by-week type of learning experience. A little here, a little there.

    El Jefe Ventura is my new favorite wrestler.

    Just saw this. You were a bit late on it and Shake had said only for emergencies so I have to deny you this one, Mitch.

    . And Shannon knows the Vultures just beat the Phillip A. Jackson Project, which isn't much to brag about but it's certainly something.

    I liked the opening. You set up the theme pretty well and it was pretty descriptive. Cold weather, cold on the inside for Shannon. The part about birds and fish migrating I thought you did well, I liked that line for some reason.

    I thought it was unique in the way that there was barely any dialog. I think Shannon said two lines. Where most promos are too heavy in dialog and not enough with the descriptions, you did the opposite and you really pulled it off.

    I read it on my phone so I know that my phone some times doesn't convert formatting, so all of the descriptive parts are plain for me. I can't imagine you left it like that because that'd be pretty boring, so I'm going to have to glance at it on my desktop later to see how you formatted that part.

    Re: Fight Night 20 October Promo Discussion Thread

    I have to agree with Sully on the O'Neal promo- I think you pulled off a great promo with very little actual dialogue by her.

    Penny- the promos for her just keep getting better and better- doesn't matter if someone is interviewing her or if she is just talking Fred. And I like her thinking in that she doesn't see Zako and Deception ae bad

    Kendrick- Very good promo. A little bit of looking back in time and looking at the now. Other than using some color for dialogue (different colors for different characters)- it was a very good promo

    Just curious, what's the intent for leaving it plain?

    I don't usually code description parts more than italics. In this case, the promo is so barebones that it feels disingenuous to amplify colors and codings for a promo that is not in any way "loud."

    That makes sense. If there's thought in the format (or lack thereof) in the promo and not just laziness or forgetfulness than it works well.

    One thing that I noticed about the Penny promo is that it was mentioned that she was "fighting Zako Wrath" , "the match with Zako". Almost like it overshadowed that Deception was also in it lol.

    While I feel my promo portion of my RP was strong, I probably could have done a little more on the character building scenes. Though I think the second one is a good appetizer for what I plan on doing in the future. I'm just so fried right now after working all day. Can't wait to further expand the Tristan character.

    Hoping to see what TJG's X title looks like after the Randall era ends.

    EDIT: as in if he'll keep the hardcore trend or do something new

    Wouldn't even chance it otherwise but as it's a jobber match, can I get the extension? Power is out where I live after storm over the weekend and was supposed to be back by now. Only have my phone at the minute but should be up and running by lunchtime?

    Very good Tristan promo- as always. Am sure you beat me as yours is just that good. One mistake in it though- last weeks match, Hanz and Wolf did beat Izzy and Starr. Of course you could just have your character saying that as a way to get under my characters skin

    The way Penny touched on the way she interprets who Zako is and why is definitely gonna allow for some really interesting and entertaining stuff...she probably shouldn't try to be his friend though...

    Re: Fight Night 20 October Promo Discussion Thread

    So has anyone else commented on the fact that Fred the cat is pretty much a representation of the logical and reasonable side of Penny's brain?

    Almost like, "the voice of Fred" is telling her the legitimate truths about the manners at hand. She also almost seems to want to empathize with Zako and really doesn't like Deception at all, on the other hand lol.
