Default ROTO Roundtable Tour (II) Draft

The Usua-Rules:
ROTO will feature a rotating roster. Before each tour, I will start open-ended sign-ups, which will be followed by a draft. Each participant will get a spot in the draft, to be conducted publicly in the Special Dynasty Forum at the bottom of the board (don't worry, I'll send a link so you won't have to scroll all the way down there).
From there, I will plot out the tour on paper and negotiate our contracts in-game. We will have three months of storylines and matches between the characters drafted, and when the tour ends, we do it all over again. Essentially, nearly the entire roster shall be wiped at the end of the tour, and even the participants from the board could change almost entirely.
Any title holder, however, will automatically return for the following season. This will include major tournament winners (for applicable tours), showing appreciation for their ability. Additionally, I will handpick one other top roster member based on my assessment of in-ring performances and match grades to carry over to the next season. That worker will be designated that tour's "Olympic God." Anyone I add to the roster myself, in order to fill things out for example, may automatically return for back-to-back tours as well.

There are a few other things I should make clear, as last time around (FATE) I didn't have things anywhere near this fleshed out:
-I will develop all the gimmicks, but anyone is welcome to suggest a direction for their character(s)
-Accept the fact that your character has the possibility of not even winning one match, if the story calls for it. If this displeases you, sign up for another tour, no big deal. "Better luck next time" applies here.
-There will be a prediction contest that will run for each tour, culminating with the last show of the tour. Whoever wins will be awarded a prize and an automatic spot in the following tour (expect an early draft pick as well).
-Aside from starting money, I will be doing my best to avoid using the editor to help us out. This means there is a possibility I cannot sign your draft pick (you will get to pick someone else haha), or your worker could sit on the shelf for the tour or the majority of it, if they pick up an early injury. Alternatively a larger company could try sign them to a written deal or something like that, and I won't be offering more than touring contracts for non-champions. Once again, no big deal. New tour can provide new opportunities.
-Please look over the product before drafting so that you can select your worker accordingly. It favors certain wrestlers over others.
-Our drug policy will be non-existent, but I will let someone go if their personal habits make them unable to perform. Other backstage incidents may be subject to a release as well.
-If you do sign up but we end up waiting on you in the draft for a 24 hour period, you can make your selection at any time following, but you will be skipped. I will not be drafting, obviously, so feel free to just send me your potential choices beforehand via private message.
-I will be attempting the contract negotiations the second I see a draft pick is made, so I am able to let you know if your worker was able to be signed or not ASAP. This prevents someone with a top pick getting screwed over by an unavailable-to-sign worker. Everyone on the list of options is available to sign at the current moment. This list can change drastically before even the second tour, as you can imagine, having (hopefully) played TEW before. Please be aware that I will pick the best available day to run live events and PPVs. If you select a worker with many other contracts, they may not be available any day of the week for a certain tour. Ask me beforehand how many contracts a worker in under before you select them, if need be.
-You can also draft according to the tour in particular. What I mean by this is, every year during the summer tour, there is the Makeshift Chemistry tournament, and the beginning of the year tour features the Lord of the Ring tournament. Makeshift Chemistry will feature eight teams, and more often than not they will be brand new pairings, beginning that evening. This information could factor into your draft decision.
-Other problems or concerns that I have yet to plan for, well.. We shall cross those bridges when we come to them.

If it is your turn, you can certainly make your pick at any time, but I won't be enforcing the 24 hour time limit until... Monday. I want everyone to have a fair shake at seeing this thread, at least, before they are skipped. Of course the time limit is to ensure those of us who are too anxious to wait are satisfied. Please keep this thread limited to draft picks (but be as flashy or smug as you'd like! ). Easy enough to just send me a shortlist via PM, as I can't pick anyways and will be watching all the picks. If you get skipped, pick later, whenever you want.
Any comments can be posted in the diary thread, no worries. This draft is the equivalent of the in-game January 2018, so the next tour is the over the honor part of the year (One Ring to Rule Them All, Beward the Ends of March, Valar Morghulis). Look out, as the first PPV features the Lord of the Ring singles tournament!

The draft has now begun!
Remember, this is a one pick only draft!

Satyr24 - Jay Lethal (ROTO World Heavyweight Champion)
