Old Nov 18th, 2005, 04:21 AM        FORUM EVENT: "Path Of Neo" Storytime Adventure!
Some of you might remember the photo story we were doing with Path Of Neo in the gaming forum. Well, now we're expanding this into the first non-mock-wars forum event!


The goal is to birth a story using manipulations of "Path Of Neo" screenshots. Look at what other people have posted and create your continuation of the story! It's like that campfire game you kids used to play, only on the internet and with the possible threat of legal action!

You have until December 15th to make your contribution to the story.

After the story is completed, it will go up on the frontpage as a new article to be viewed by all!

Additionally, we will hold an open vote for 'best picture', with prizes!

GRAND PRIZE (2 Winners): "Path Of Neo" game for PC
THE REST OF YOU: Your contribution immortalized on!


Anyone with a registered account can participate.


1. No "not safe for work" material.
Do not post anything that you wouldn't show your grandmother. We at i-mockery love our grandmothers. And yours.

2. .JPG and .GIF file formats only.
No .bmp, .png, .tga, or whatever else you assholes are going to try to pull.

3. No hotlinking.
The image uploader for this event is linked at the bottom of this post, so please use that to upload your pictures. Do not host them on your own space. This rule is waived until the uploading utility is active.

4. No outside captioning.
All of your text should be included INSIDE the image. Try to use the "Comic Book Commando" font (which can be downloaded HERE) when you are including narrative text such as "Later that day...", "Elsewhere...", etc. It's not a requirement, per se, but it will definitely make the story look better in the long run.

5. Images must include content from a Path of Neo screenshot.
Not your artistic interpretation of the characters.

6. Images must be equal to or below 600 pixels in width.
So that you don't stretch out peoples' web browsers who run in 800x600 resolution.

7. Maximum of 2 pictures per post, but unlimited posts allowed.
If you have an idea that really needs a couple pictures to flesh it out, feel free to post two pictures to do it. This does not mean that you only get to make two pictures in the story - You can post as many times as you like. Provided...

8. Do not post twice in a row.
Let other people create the story too; Let at least one other person post before you add to the story.

9. Images must be manipulated in some way.
Do not just take a screenshot and add word bubbles. That's not the point of what we're doing here.


Images created in any digital editing program are accepted, be it Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, MSPaint, or others. We only ask that it be of somewhat reasonable quality and that it continues the storyline being created by the other forum members.

Here's how you participate:
- Read the story thus far
- Create an image with content from any Path Of Neo screenshot
- Upload your image using the program included at the bottom of this post
- Post your contribution in this thread and include the name of the poster whose story you are continuing. (This will always be the last poster in the thread.)


Continued from the retro kat.

We've uploaded a shitfuckton of images for you to use in your manipulating, but feel free to use any Path Of Neo screenshot you find.

Have fun and help create Neo's grandest adventure yet!
