View Full Version : More Pre-Aggression 50/Sin City Showdown Festivities

12-31-09, 04:33 PM
Hey all...

A couple of notes coming out of Aggression 49.

First thing's first - if you haven't read the show yet, go do so. Lots of stuff happening in this one, one of our strongest shows all year for our final show in 2009 so make sure you catch every segment. Leave feedback also. I love that stuff. :)

Ok, onto some news.

Announcement #1

Prior to the Aggression 50 portion of Sin City Showdown, I've decided to finally institute an EPW Hall of Fame. A couple of things here. Inductees will be decided by me and me alone. Eligible characters must be retired from the fed and in general obviously have had a great effect on the fed in their time here. The Hall will begin with two inaugural inductees, which I will announce the first week of January and induct officially in a short official announcment prior to Aggression 50 where both will say a few words in acceptance.

Announcement #2

Many of you have participated in helping me compile a list of the best matches in the history of the fed for a proposed "DVD" project that will be posted in the same form as one of our shows, as though you were watching the DVD.

Now, what I'd like is some volunteers who would like their characters to give me short little blurbs on why these matches are historic to the fed, why they are among the greatest, etc. You wouldn't be expected to read and give a comment on every match on the DVD. Ideally, if for example I have 20 matches on the DVD, and 10 volunteers for giving content I'd spread it out and give a few matches to each person to comment on like a little mini review to intro the match on the DVD - something like the way you get comments from wrestlers on the WWE produced DVDs you see now.

If this interests you and you'd like to participate, let me know.

Announcement #3

WFW:NE's Raucous is still due to be run over there between now and the time we can start roleplay for Aggression 50, so I'm tossing around the idea of running some "House Show" cards to tide us over alongside these Pre-Aggression 50 festivities. If you'd like to do something like that, let me know. That way if you're itching to roleplay and keep stuff moving, you can do so that way as a "Road to Aggression 50" type of house show tour.

Again, if you're interested and woud like to participate in something like this, let me know.

That's it for now. More if it pops in my head later. :)

- Dave, EPW Owner

Wow! So much stuff so much stuff! So I will be happy to do commentary for the DVD stuff if youd like. Also house shows sound delicous.

01-02-10, 08:30 PM
Yay to house shows! I need practice getting my ass kicked. And if you need extra bodies for the DVD project I could have the Heirs do some self-aggrandizing version of commentary for tag teams.

01-02-10, 09:06 PM
Happy to help out with commentaries to the Best of - and love the idea of the houseshows. Question - would they be like Onslaught?

01-02-10, 10:23 PM
Karl beat me to it. Since it's a rare occasion, just bring back Onslaught for a single night. Rather than a typical card, maybe give it something modest, like three or four matches, with the rest of the show being hype segments that build up to Aggression 50. Kinda like a wrestling variety hour. I know it would serve me well in some ideas for the matches I'm involved in on the card.

Also, I'll offer the voice, opinion, and likeness of Rocko Daymon for the DVD special. Just pitch me a list of the matches you need his commentary on and I'll send em your way.

I'd have First on the DVD commentary if you'll have him.

Love the idea for the DVD. Very nice stuff going on here. If possible I'd like to participate in the house shows. I'm itching to RP here. I'm already having a ball in Swift with my first RP.

01-02-10, 11:47 PM
Yes, the house show would basically be an Onslaught card. Short formed matches with, as suggested, hype segments for Aggression 50 and the joint show.

Also, anyone who wants to put comments on the DVD "show" are welcome. I'll use everyone who wants to participate.

Same with the house shows. Short form is easy to do with lots of matches if need be. Just post here.

Count Layne Winters in for commentary on matches that occurred in 2009. Sorry, I'm not real up to date on my pre-2009 EPW history. :D

I'm down for some house shows.

01-03-10, 04:58 PM
Cat can do some commentary on more recent matches on the DVD, as long as these commentaries aren't supposed to be in character. That would complicate things somewhat.

I can do some limited house show work with Cat, too, though "limited" is the key word there.

01-03-10, 10:32 PM
I'm down for whatever, house shows, segment, sure, whatever... I'm not sure how much anybody would want to hear Anarky's opinion on historic matches haha.

01-04-10, 03:41 AM
I'm good to go. As far as commentary on the matches. I think I could work up a fan boy recollection of stuff i can read up on.

01-04-10, 01:35 PM
I'm down for all of the above just let me know what you need.

01-04-10, 01:47 PM
I'm down for all of the above as well. Just let me know what you need.

Some DVD commentary action sounds nice.

01-05-10, 06:42 AM
DVD commentary? I'm on that shiznit like Rabesquedor on boredom.

01-05-10, 01:59 PM
I can certainly write some commentary in or out of character.

A house show sounds a lot better than a long layoff.

I'll have feedback for Agg 49 up tonight in the blog.

01-05-10, 06:49 PM
I'm thinking that if a house show was going to happen it should be soon.. With RAUCOUS' rp period ending the 10th, the current plan is to have it out by the 14th, the 15th the latest.

If the RP periods are to be staggered so each show gets the best hcance of RP while the last one is being written, I would say that Aggression 50 RP could start as soon as the 10th at least .. that way there's little overlapping between the time that RAUCOUS is written and out, you know?

01-05-10, 10:31 PM
How about the 11th? I don't work weekends. ;)

01-08-10, 05:14 AM
I'm willing to do any commentaries on the four Marx matches on the DVD set.
