I'm reluctant to use the comic book images for real-world characters who have actual pictures posted. Just saying.

Valid point. Sweeny should have one though.

Yeah, let's stick with Real World Characters having real photos. As for the fictional characters, every time their Comic Book Echo appears, use that in place of the pictures I used before.

And can tropers have their avatars on the character sheet?

( Note: Peter Pan is an exception, as he posted a video. And for Mr. Administrator, we could put a picture of the bottom of his head, seen in the Mr. A thread I put up, or we could spoil it by putting a picture of him from Mind Screw.)

Nah, Mr. A should stay faceless. That's pretty much his iconic appearance.

Has anybody added Derailed Train Of Thought to the trope list for the ARG yet, because if not, why the heck not?

That's more of a forum trope (also, I didn't know this trope existed - I'm somewhat savvy, but not that much). Now that you say that, we should at least add a passing mention to rEALITY and the Cake Guy on Red Herrings. ;)

And someone still needs to add Peter and Adam to the list of fictites.

What are Trademark Favourite Food And Shipping doing in the ARG tropes. Aren't they forum tropes as well?

Also, I've moved the contents of the Shards page to ImageLinks/TheWallWillFall and added the Shards page itself to the cutlist.

I see in the history you said Mr. A confirmed that the wall and void are the same. As far as I know, he said the void was INSIDE the wall, bu nothing else. Where did he say otherwise?

All right, it was long overdue, so I added the Cabal to the characters page. Too tired to find quotes and tropes for them at the moment, though; everyone else can feel free to do that.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

An important thought in light of the Refictionalization announcement: As the echoes come in (and retroactively for the ones we've got), we have to make SURE that every character has at least one trope from every relevant comic, so that we'll know what we've got to work with when we start on the stories.

OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

I would, but I'll miss about 92% anyway.

Added a bit to the YMMV page this morning. Hope it's okay.
So, apparently I'm the sanest madman this side of the international date line. Seems legit.

RP news: Power Play and Sunset Drift are open for business! Bound by Faith may need a while to finish, though.

Seems fine. I'm not really good at handling YMMV stuff, so you can go wild there.

if we don't have it yet, can we please get a TearJerker page added to this thing? because if Don's reaction to Tara's death isn't that, then I don't know what is.

Looks like its been created. If you were wondering, it's not that hard to create a subpage, Scar :3

Just put the name of the subpage between "http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/" and the name of the main page, and then enter that in your address bar. If you edit the page, it will add itself to the main page as a subpage.

Speaking of the main page, should we add something about the Cabal to the description? And other important developments?

I've added some bare-bones character sheets for our RL guys. Give them some love.

TWWP switched Sherlock images on us, and I don't exactly like the image he used. It's from a really strange angle and doesn't show a full shot of Sherlock, just his side.

Should it get changed back? What does everyone think?

Well, we've been through this at the chat - I do like the old one better. It's not a clear face shot, but the best we have. I thought about a full-face pic from the recent echo, but his face is pretty weird there, too. So... discussion?

The second echo doesn't really have any good shots...

Hmmmm

How about the last panel of the first Echo Comic?

No?

How about his second echo then?

No?

Use the old one then.
