Actually, I haven't watched it. For that reason. :D The benefits of jumping into the game late.

All we know about them is their name... I can't spell it, but I'm sure it's somewhere in the timeline... We could add them to the Characters page, but what would we add to them as tropes?

CreepyDoll, obviously! But for real, they aren't players in the game. They were, like Cerberus, a way to get the idea across that fiction was crossing over. I think. Maybe we'll interact with them later.

Creepy Doll, and maybe Pervese Puppet if the "spirits" of the characters possessed the wooden body of the puppet.

The problem is, we don't know anything about them... So. Add Creepy Doll to the main page. under Tropes From the ARG... I'm on it. :D

Oh... It's already there. No fun. I didn't get to edit it. :(

So, I'm guessing we'll be replacing old images of the characters with their 'comic' versions? (I noticed we did for some of them)

I suggested that a few days ago. Dryu and Sicon were in the case, if I remember well.

Dryu did actually. You're doing it for the others too?
In any case we should wait for Mr. A's enhanced versions before updating the page.

If you read the Plaza Echo post, you'll see I got way ahead of that. :gurt:

We'll use my images for now, when the echoes come, crop them and upload them to replace them.

And we should add Peter Pan to the characters page.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

Query: Should we be putting nicknames under "Fan Nickname"? Technically, we are in the ARG and a part of it, therefore wouldn't it be more appropriate to put the nicknames for the characters under "In Series Nickname"?

I think unless another PM-run character uses it, it counts as a fan nickname.

Again, why should it? We are a part of the game. Without players, nothing would happen. We use the names to refer to the characters, and all of the names were created here, by us, while playing our parts. Fan Nickname makes no sense.

Add Peter Pan and Adam Frankenstein to the page.

For now, use the Disney Pan and Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's Monster.

We have a picture of Peter: the video Joe posted. We should be able to get a pretty good quality printscreen with that.

True, but we still should switch it to the Comic version once we have his page.

I think I'll side with Sicon on this one. To some extent, what we do is also Canon. True, we can't write the plot, as that is up to the PMs, but our actions are still part of the narrative and if we give a Nickname to some character while playing, then it's an inside thing. I'm for InSeriesNickname.

I won't dispute that (it'll make the page look more cohesive), I'm just saying, if we have a better picture we should use it.

Okay, I've been asleep for 15 hours and therefore may have missed this, but is anyone working on character pages for The Cabal? Especially now that we know their individual identities? Or am I an idiot and it's already on the page? Most likely the latter.
