Well, this seems to happen in later rounds on this game.And shame on you all for not participating. :noway:
Well, this seems to happen in later rounds on this game.
MWoF and I have discussed it, and decided that the Ultimization Game will be going on hiatus for a while, probably until summer, when people tend to have more time. We've also talked about limiting the number of rounds that will be played, instead of leaving it open-ended.
So, in the coming months, look for a whole new season of the Ultimization Game. In the meantime, anyone interested might want to generate a list of Marvel characters who haven't been Ultimized yet, and start planning ahead....
Would this be the time to start up the general ultimization game then?
Okay, so I just thought of another random idea for an Ultimization game.
The weekly format seems to be a little tight for a few people, so what if we do more extensive, but longer form entries? Instead of finding a way to fit 616 characters into UU continuity, what if we take a month to ultimize a new universe using familiar characters but using a unique, central conceit? For instance, we ultimize a new Marvel universe based around Chinese mythology, or one where the heroes of the universe are ultimized as villains, and the villains as heroes. It could work one of two ways.
The first would be more traditional, with one person outlining the basic twist for the universe, and everyone has a month to create a universe based around this twist, picking and choosing whatever characters they find most interesting. The winner of the round determines the criteria for the next round.
The other option would be to do it as more of a collaborative effort. Before the game starts, we have, say, a week for people to all suggest ideas for the central premise. Then we have a week in which we vote on all of those premises and run with whichever one gets the most votes. Whoever put forth the concept operates as the moderator, and we spend a month collaborating on a vision for that universe. After the month is over, we have a vision of how it would work and then move onto the next concept. We put all the old ideas together with any new ones in a poll and then vote for the next idea to be ultimized.
just a thought.
The entries from the second round, which just finished, are here: Ultimization Archive Thread.
The entries from the first round, which started the whole game, have, alas, been deleted. I'm going to make a copy of the second round entries, just in case the archive thread disappears. (It shouldn't, but better safe than sorry....)
