Proposal: Major Characters V2

Timed out 2 votes to 7. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 30 Mar 2009 17:18:03 UTC

Create a new rule, titled Major Characters, with the following text:

There exist Major Characters, which are listed in the wiki page Major Characters.  Each Major Character has a name, a description, and is either Alive or Dead.  Major Characters can only be created through proposals.  When a Scripter rolls a 5 on the body count roll for a scene, they may change that scene’s body count to 1, and set a single Alive Major Character to Dead, or they can set the body count for that scene to 0 and set a single Dead Major Character to Alive. The change must be noted in the scene.  If a scene implies a change from Alive to Dead or vice versa without actually changing it via this rule, the scene is automatically cut.

Create the following Major Characters:

Name: Hero

Description: The hero of the story.

Alive

Name: Man.

Description: Mysterious and Evil.

Alive

against Okay, so I can’t incorporate new characters into my scripts on the fly now?  Remember Stweart?  REMEMBER HIM?  HE DIED FOR YOU!

Also, there’s still the same Alive/Dead problem.  Either we result to witchery (which has no place in a *gritty*, *realistic* action movie which tackles *issues*) to resuscitate characters, or we claim that they were “only unconscious” when they were declared Dead earlier.  Which makes Dead lose much of its meaning, no?  I mean, if we can’t trust the wiki, who can we trust?  Stweart trusted you.  And look at him now.  REMEMBER HIM.

No, no no, you misunderstand.  You can throw in random new characters, but it takes a proposal to actually get them called major.  If someone wants, they can propose something allowing slightly freer creation of major characters…
