Okay this concept is probably extremely dumb and I am sorry in advance. How about a Grand Battle (a mini-grand) that is conducted in the same way as a Something A Little Different?

Okay so here's how this would work. We'd need thirteen people total. First person writes four profiles and introduction and sends them on to the second person. The second person writes the start of the round from all four perspectives and sends only that onto the third person. And so on, proceeding all the way until we have a conclusion to the battle.

Intros: 1
Round One: 2, 3, 4, 5
Round Two: 6, 7, 8, 9
Round Three 10, 11, 12, 13.

Writers 5, 9, 13 get in addition to the previous post a one line summary of who the Grandmaster is/their personality. Whatever. They end the round, selecting which of the characters dies and write a brief summary of the next one (except 13 who writes the character winning and a short epilogue).

Each post must contain some content for each of the characters still alive at that point simply in order to give the next writer something to work with. Everyone would try to stay in continuity as much as possible with what knowledge they have in their post, but if they don't manage it then that is part of the fun of things.

Anyone want in on this quite frankly ludicrous idea?

I'll slap myself in the intros spot, unless anybody else wants it. If anyone wants a particular spot then ask for it otherwise I'll just shuffle you around.

Oh man. I'll take spot 1 from you if that's okay, because if there's anything I like to do, it's make profiles.

Now that I think about it, if I'm to be involved (and i do want to be) it has to be spot 1 because of obvious reasons. Plus I've already written up one and a half profiles. How about we go splits and make two profiles each? This seems reasonable and also in the spirit of the thing. If not then I'll step out and use these profiles somewhere else.

Four more people. Also I have my two profiles ready. PM me when you have yours cyber. I think when I have them I will start this thing rolling, even though we aren't full up yet. I don't think this will be the fastest thing ever so I don't see that being a problem.

I'll slip into spot 11, if you have no objection Ix. I'll be like the last book in your home library that fits right into place with every shelf now completely full. When that happens, the correct adjective to use is Kentucky, as in "the puzzle piece fit nice and kentucky".

Is observing my own pattern of behavior of observing my own patterns of behavior a mental fractal or just navel gazing? Please advise.

Okay we have a full roster, the only thing to do at the moment is to pester Fogel to get the first update done.

I remember you were saying to Godbot when he was trying to kick off Sir Cedric in VD that the first post is easy (I'm paraphrasing). It's setting up precisely where someone is, what they think about the battle as a whole. Do that then maybe add in some ways to interact with the environment and there you go.

Incidentally I came to the realization that this is more tough than a normal GB due to the fact that you have nobody to talk about it with and have come to the conclusion that whoever is writing can always PM me to bounce ideas off me or something. Admittedly for people later in the process I won't really be able to tell them very much in case I give away any unknown information, but I'm guessing it's better than nothing if you are having a tough time.

To me, this will always be seen as "Grand BALD Eagle Time".
