    OOC - What is CAWO

    Hey all,

    First, allow me to provide a little background on who I am. My name is Patrick. I entered into UltraTitle 2012 with John McDonough and was in a couple of feds here around that timeframe as "The Minstrel" and "The Ravager" Reed Cromier. I thought posting here about my new project on these boards would clear up some questions and maybe raise some interest in it, as well.

    Some time ago, I used a text-based program called TNM7, which allowed me to act as a booker for mine own promotions made up of real or fake wrestlers. As I could work on TNM7 at my own leisure without the pressure of deadlines and I was at a much busier time in my life, the program became the perfect way for me to get my e-wrestling fix without the obligations of joining an e-fed. From that program sprung the CAWO - the Council of Affiliated Wrestling Organizations.

    The CAWO, as it existed then and now, is what I refer to as an umbrella federation. It is most similar to the old-school NWA or what existed in the e-fedding world in the late 1990s and early 2000s as the NWC or WfWA - I believe some of you were from that site when I was active in 2012. This is meant to be a coalition of several smaller federations that operate mostly independent of one another with their own rosters and titles, but you also have an overarching federation with grander titles that creates a forum for these different rosters to interact on a larger scale at inter-fed shows and pay-per-view events like the inaugural show "Red Dawn."

    The rosters of each federation are made up of mostly loosely defined characters that I either invented or borrowed, in derivative or whole form, from my e-wrestling days many moons ago. They have gimmicks and very loose back stories that I am looking forward to exploring in this more descriptive format than what TNM7 offered. The rosters will likely be posted this evening in each region's subforum and I will add descriptions of each character as I go along. I am eager to produce content and I think the content will help shape the characters much better than some very brief roster page description.

    I also have a schedule, which I will be posting that will show when and in which region the CAWO-wide titles are going to be defended. It will also show when the CAWO-wide and interfed events are going to take place. The schedule will go up after the results of Red Dawn are posted - Night 1 is nearly complete.

    As I explained In-Character, each regional federation will have its own "weekly" program and special events. I place "weekly" in quotes because there is almost no way any person could reasonably produce four weekly shows in a week's timeframe. These weekly shows will have segments, but the matches will most likely be in summary format with a main event or key matchup written in play-by-play format. I am shooting to have all four weekly shows completed in a three week timeframe IRL, but some IC weeks will be longer than that IRL. The larger CAWO events and regional special events will be in play-by-play format.

    I have received a few private messages with people asking about what exactly the CAWO is and whether it was a fed that people could join. I just wanted to clear up exactly what it is. It's sort of a self-contained e-fed/personal writing project, which I hope you will read and enjoy. I will accept defunct or current characters and plug them in as I go along, but I can make no promises about pushes or even utility. I have about a "year" of material outlined. There is room for tweaks, but again, I make no guarantees. In short, it's not a public e-fed that you can join and participate in. Maybe one day, I will relinquish some control, but for now I am a total control freak over this personal project.

    I hope you won't hold that against me AND I do hope you will read and enjoy. Any constructive criticism is welcome via PM and I will have a OOC discussion thread here for any readers to chime in.
