Somewhere in the future...

A huddled mass sits expectantly looking up. To say it’s an odd group of individuals would be wrong on two counts. As these people are beyond odd. They’re also no longer merely individuals.

They didn’t all arrive together to this world they find themselves engulfed in. Some came with stars in their eyes, some came with nothing. But day by day their numbers grew, as did their confidence, as did their hunger.

And tonight… they feast.

All eyes on one man, and although he was pacing up and down in a frantic manner, inside he was the most self assured of the lot. For he’d done all of this before. However, he understood the importance of appearance, this wasn’t the time to reassure and calm his people as tonight each man and woman would have to dig deep for every last drop of determination and desire they had. He stopped mid sentence and took a look around the decrepit and over cramped locker room.


‘Before Penny first got me involved in all this I honestly would have been satisfied if I never stepped foot in a wrestling arena again. It felt like DAVE used up all the fire I had, and then my years working elsewhere stamped out any remains.

But you know what she’s like, how tenacious she can be. She persuaded me. And well... I’ve never really told you… At least not collectively, but the first few weeks, hell even months, I would question that decision every day, I thought I’d gone mad! You know why I did that?

Because I’d counted you all out, straight away. Deep down I never thought we’d see this day. But then you did your thing… that thing you all do. It’s the one thing, and only thing, you all have in common. It’s not just never say die no that’s too easy, nobody wants to die. What you all do… is…

The room has barely moved taking in each word.

Well you shoot for the f***ing moon! EVERY SINGLE TIME!

No matter who tells you not to, no matter how many times you hear it you aim right at that moth**f*****!

Well now ladies and gentlemen, now is time to take off, to prove everyone wrong, land on that moon and stick one giant flag for all to see. Make that flag so big that anytime any doubting f***er looks up at the sky he is reminded that he’s nothing to us because we're not like him!

Not at all... because WE ARE ELITE!



P.S This is later revealed to be a dream of Penny Williams and not an actual vision of the future... Or is it?

BACK IN THE GAME!

Well it's been a while since my last outing and just like my main man above Phil Vibert I feel like I've got one last go in me*

*At least until TEW2020 that is.

So this is Elite Pro Wrestling, I've taken the company out of the default database. I'm trying quite a few things in this project that I've never done before... both in terms of the format and the content. Things might get a little weird! But hopefully some of you will join me for the ride.

In general I want to let the actual posts do the talking, but just as an intro this is going to not actually follow the shows of EPW but is supposed to be a youtube style show following the creation and running of EPW. Hopefully it all makes sense, I'm thinking a mixture of Being The Elite/Lucha Underground/ and The Office, perhaps a sprinkling of The Muppets in there.

It is still going to be following a TEW game save that obviously will have EPW shows, you just won't get as close a look at that side of things as usual. Basically I'll go to any lengths to avoid having to right match write ups out as that tends to kill my writing interests so allows me to focus 100% of everything else whilst still having the matches that I book in game matter.

I must admit the logo is like 80% of why I chose them. I've also edited them to the point where it's essentially my own version instead of the default data.

Finally..... The Ape HAS COME BACK........ Home.

But yes I'm enjoying getting back into reading a lot of the diaries. I've checked back every so often and one of the only constants is you. It's strange to not see you with a WWE diary but I do prefer C-verse ones 90% of the time. On one hand 2020 being round the corner might kill interest in diaries for 16 but hopefully it has the opposite affect and just gets people interest in the game in general, like it obviously has with me!



So here is the first show. Over the years I've taken plenty of pages out of the Eisen-verse playbook and today is no different. I must say I've always considered posting in this pdf format because it is so much quicker to make but never really thought people would read it if they have to click on it. Maybe I'm right, time will tell.

Although posts will mostly be in this pdf format. The actual content will change quite drastically really. There's a few stages to it all I have planned and this is very much the intro stage.



One small thing; I have no idea whether the saying 'in for a penny, in for a pound' is just a UK thing. So for any non brits... you might as well just leave and never come back.

But in all seriousness it basically means if you're doing something you might as well do it to the end/do it well. Like if you're betting a penny you might as well just bet a pound. So that's the name of her show as it's about her trying out different things and going 'all in'. And her name is Penny....

That said if you think it's an awful name it's not important and it's not staying for long...

You had me at Swanson. It wouldn't share the vicinity with Ritner by any chance, would it?

Love the layout, love the format, love that Phil Vibert has his own Heyman's Hustle. This is April O'Neil dodges the sewers and finds the Godfather of Hardcore.

Can't wait for Ep 2. Great stuff, man.

Do you want to be a STAR?

Do you have TALENT?

Do you want to try something NEW?

We're looking for HARDCORE performers who love performing in front of a crowd.

If you're willing to give us your time and energy then we will make you FAMOUS!

Disclaimers
* Physical fitness is important but grit and determination more so.
** Must be available on the 2nd of January 2016.
***Must be willing to endure the physicality of professional wrestling.
****Prior to the shows there will be an unpaid training camp where you will learn all you need.



The meta spiral continues.

So this is a diary
about a game
where there is a vlog
about running a wrestling promotion
and they are running an advert looking for wrestlers
which will (hopefully) be responded to by people reading the diary, thus completing the circle.

So please feel free to come up with someone for ELITE. I'm looking for any type of people in ring/non wrestlers male/female. Ideally people who haven't wrestled before. So I guess all I'd like to know is;

Why do they want to be a star and what makes them think they can be?
Do they have any talents?
What do they look like?
Any other information I should know about them?
And I suppose what their name is unless you want them to be called Jim Jimson as that's pretty much the limits of my creativity.

(Don't worry about going as weird as you like for this).

I can't guarantee all everyone will be used a lot but hopefully there is a place in ELITE for all the people of LA looking for work.

Thanks a lot! Yeah that's a real good way of putting it, I like that. (Although I must admit I hate to google to remind myself who April O'Neil is).

I was wondering if anybody would get the Swanson reference, I thought it was subtle but no it was found by probably the first person to read it! I suppose if I didn't want to hit the nail too squarely on the head with the ELITE/ECW comparison I shouldn't have used the street name.

I'm not sure I've seen the Fierce one, which surprises me because I looked through a lot of logos trying to find the right one. In general I stuck mostly with Kamtchaka's as I've always loved his stuff and he didn't let me down with the ELITE one.

All good man. It was subtle. I'm just a massive ECW fanboy.

P.S At the moment I've just been picking a random diary/any I've read to use for the advert but if anyone wants me to use there's in any future ones (and wants to tell me what to put) just send me a message.

As Penny says, still time to send your people in to be future ELITE roster members. Either way there will still be different reader participation stuff coming up.

The final auditions are here!

I guess now's good a time as any to explain a bit of the behind the scenes.

So whilst doing this I'm slowly creating the pictures for the new people. These are not in the C-Verse at the amount and will be completely new workers that I'm adding into my database.

Elite will start with very low popularity obviously, but not 0. My thinking is let's take Heyman as a RL example, it would be impossible for him to open up (or even just be heavily involved) in a wrestling show and it be a 0. I mean 0 (at least to me) is like if I personally was going to put a show in some village in England.

I think even if Phil Vibert was just to tweet, hey I'm putting on my first show since DAVE on this day, it would immediately have more people following it than a random independent.

Add to this the vlog, Penny isn't supposed to be some huge youtube star, but my thinking is she still makes a living from it. So these vidoes would at least mean something to the shows popularity.

That said, I still haven't decided actually how popular to start the company. (any opinions welcome)

In terms of the wrestlers though, they are all pretty much completely unknowns, again though I'd like to think the vlog would add at least a tiny bit of popularity.

Wrestling ability wise they're all going to be fairly awful, but depending how bootcamp goes some will have a little skill in certain areas. Just letting you know in advance so you're aware that bootcamp matters not just in storyline but for the actual creation of the characters.

I'll be getting you all involved when it comes to the wrestlers starting popularity, as most will be super low but in my head one or two of them would gain a bit of boost by being liked by Penny's viewers (aka you).
