It's a mystery.
Broken into a jigsaw puzzle.
Wrapped in a conundrum.
Hidden in a Chinese box.

A riddle.


Awhile back I did a TEW2010 thread that had a lot of weird rules and ended up getting overtaken by some weird spergy guy and eventually ended in people playing Trivial Pursuit and becoming skeletons.

With Rarity doing an excellent modern TEW thread that I hope returns very soon, I figured I'd set up another one in a different niche with a different gimmick. We're heading out of modern WWE territory and heading just past the Death of the Territories. The WCW re-watch is almost right after where we'll begin, so turn your Wayback machines to May 1996.

The gimmick of this thread isn't just to lead the WWF or WCW to win the blossoming Monday Night Wars, but to choose a side.

Both WCW and WWF will be booked here and the catch is that you can only book for one or the other. Anyone can join or leave the booking teams at any time, but you cannot switch once you choose (unless prompted by certain events). So if you choose to join WCW, decide you don't want to play anymore, and then come back - you can't come back with the WWF.

Total Extreme What Now?
Total Extreme Wrestling is a booking simulation series made by this guy named Adam Ryland. He's been making them since forever and up to TEW2005 is freeware. While the game comes with a host of fantasy characters Ryland and others have created, there's also a pretty intense modding scene that allows for various real world scenarios. We'll be using a modded scenario here in TEW2013, which came out late last year. It's a much faster game and seems like it might just be the best in the series so far - that remains to be seen!

So What's May 1996 Like?

WCW
. The Giant is currently in his second WCW World Title run. Konnan is currently the United States champion, while Lex Luger holds two belts: The Television Title and the Tag Titles along with Sting.

. Following the failed "Alliance to end Hulkamania," the Dungeon of Doom and The Horsemen have split up and look to be heading into battle with each other.

. Hulk Hogan is becoming slightly stale in his character and fans are starting to turn on him.

. Introduction of foreign stars like Konnan, Jushin Liger, Eddie Guerrero etc.

. Kevin Nash and Scott Hall have just signed for the company but the news has yet to be spoiled online.

WWF
. Shawn Michaels is the top babyface and just won his first World title from Bret Hart in a sixty minute iron man match. Now Bret looks to take a short period of time off to let Michaels adjust to the top babyface role. In addition to this, Goldust holds the Intercontinental Title while the Bodydonnas hold the tag belts.

. Losing two major stars to their rivals, the company needs to find new stars in the undercard which currently includes Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Steve Austin and Owen Hart.

. Struggling for star power, Roddy Piper and The Ultimate Warrior have been brought back for another run with the company.

. The recently debuted Vader is being positioned to be a monster heel to take on Michaels in the future and is gearing up for a rivalry with Yokozuna to get him to that level.

So What Else Do I Need To Know?

While discussion and shows will be posted in thread, actual decisions will be made in ~seeecret documennnnnts~ so that we actually have a sense of competition (though sometimes shows might be taped before others - so beware!). Booking decisions will be based on majority rule of who's voted by time limit (so if there's 20 bookers, ten people vote, and 6 say that the Giant should lose to Kevin Sullivan, then that's majority). I will write the shows, though all the ideas behind them come from you.

There won't be any self-imposed limits here like my last game, but the goal is to keep it mostly serious since going insane and making Triple H a nazi sex character will probably cause you to lose to the other team. The only limits are what the game has imposed - some workers have creative control, so Kevin Nash might not lie down for Chris Jericho. You definitely don't have to follow history - unless you want to. Have fun and be creative, but maybe giving Hulk Hogan an alien from Mars gimmick might not work so well?

Additionally, there will be some out-of-game events. WCW might sway a couple of bookers from WWF, or perhaps a hurricane keeps part of WCW's bookers away from the show, and of course there will still be interaction with management. While I'm acting as a conduit for playing the game, I want to make it a little different than if you were playing by yourself.

So all that's left is for you to choose a side. Will you help Eric Bischoff and the just-out-of-the-minors WCW overtake Vince McMahon or will you help new writer Vince Russo keep the struggling WWF afloat? I'll give it a day or two for signups then we can start. Remember, even if you're late to the thread we're always taking new hires (and the teams need not be balanced - potentially WWF could be 20 guys and WCW could be 1).

There is no future. There is no past. Do you see? Time is simultaneous, an intricately structured jewel that humans insist on viewing one edge at a time, when the whole design is visible in every facet.

I'm going to join team internet and criticize both products while claiming I could do it better.
