We got some real lookers on here, on the guy's side and the girl's side. One of the stars of this diamond mine's my bombshell secretary, who some of you might remember ran a little survey a while back on how long people've been here, what people want most... the number one thing people wanted out of this whole community schtick was the people they miss back.
That's not somethin' I can do for ya. That's what makes it so important to treasure their precious, precious memories while you can. [He meant that to come off genuine enough to be a sales pitch, but it just comes out sarcastic and mocking, earning a grimace at his own failure as a salesman.]
I'm gonna make some trade cards up of all you guys, y'know, the kind you get in cigarette packs. Once in a while I'll give you all some shit to do and you can earn cards that got yer friends pictures on 'em and swap 'em around to collect the whole sets. Once you get the whole set, you can cash 'em in for physical hard copies!
Now you people who ain't got no friends are gonna feel kinda crappy if no one wants yer decks, and that's no good. I'mma feel-good kinda guy. You guys can offer little rewards to people who finish off your decks, too. Pies, paintings, cash, blow jobs, world hops, whatever ya want---if you don't pay up, I ain't gonna force it, but your offer's as good as yer word, so take some pride in it.
How's this help with rememberin' people who ain't here? All you nostalgic people can donate to a memorial fund. Memorial fund prizes'll go to anyone who finishes a deck for someone who ain't here no more.
Now the first thing we're gonna need is some pictures. Why not make a game out of it and get those cards out there? Once you've been here six months you get a deck.
Here's how it's gonna go! You guys start postin' pictures 'n say how long you've been around. Other people'll rate'cha one to ten, ten high, one low. Everyone who gets 50 points gets a prize. Pull a hundred 'n you'll get double.
But to make it fair and a real game, only one in ten of the points you give can be a ten. Only one of ten can be a nine, eight, seven, and six, too. You can give out as many fives as ya want, and if you give out too many of those high numbers, the last one given'll get counted down a number 'n all the other ones will, too. My secretary's a ten and definitely qualified to judge a beauty contest, all smart and good with numbers too, so she'll be the one checkin' those totals.
When you're givin' numbers, you can talk about what'cha like about 'em, throw out some key words and stuff for some deck names.
You got it? Then, get to it![OOC: For more information on the up and coming DDD IC Trading Card Game, please see: this Opt-in and FAQ post.
A deck will ONLY be made if you opt-in on that permission post! You're still free to post to the pageant or to play any of the games hosted without opting in! If your character hasn't been here six months, their deck will be made when it has been six months. Or your character can lie: if Greed neither nor Sena catch it, they're in!
Simplified Pageant game rules: ICly give ratings of 1-10, with only one 10, one 9, one 8, etc. allowed per 10 ratings your character gives. In other words, if your character gives 20 ratings, they can give two 6s, two 7s, two 8s, etc. 5s and below are unlimited. Optionally suggest deck names: i.e., Kobato might be the Vampire deck, Shelly the Shell deck, etc.
Sena-mun and I will be making the cards, probably using the pictures you provide. If you opt-in, we will ask if we need more pictures and may try to use your icons.
Feel free to put Posted by Community if your character would not ICly play.
