imaginary friend draft

been too long since we've done a draft and not sure if this would be any good but I was thinking we could draft fictional characters of any kind that we'd want to be besties with.

they can come from any medium and be absolutely anything that has ever been created, but you can't change them in anyway so if they're evil they're gonna stay evil n you can't assume they'll be nice to you unless it was specified they were nice to friends etc.

basically they will remain as they are commonly known to be so keep that in mind when you draft them to be your companion, however the various friends won't have to interact with each other only you.

if anyone has any suggestions for more specifications I'm all ears.

edit: I haven't slept yet and very tired n brain not fully functional so this might be an absolutely idiotic idea. I'm leaning that way but I don't know how to delete a thread so guess I'll just leave this hear n deal with the mockery.

I'll play. It's sort of a fictional charter draft which is cool with the caveat of being someone you would like to hang with.

Re: imaginary friend draft

Should do two separate drafts; one of fictional characters (like Satan) and one of nonfictional historical characters, like Zeno.

Re: imaginary friend draft

Every one of my answers would be a massive troll fest, so I can't be in.

enjoy!

Re: imaginary friend draft

I don't see a problem with some troll selections as long as you draft swiftly!
come aboard imo.

If you are short on participants because of fear of creating characters or lack of experience in doing that, this might help:

Re: imaginary friend draft

I'd like to play, but only read the forum irregularly, and would hold things up. Posting to be subscribed, because I'm interested in the results, though.

Re: imaginary friend draft

I am still hoping this will gain traction and fill up but doesn't look good.
very curious if what I think is the slam dunk #1 pick is a consensus choice.

Re: imaginary friend draft

ok so how it works is when we get enough ppl we will assign a random order then we take turns making our picks in that order and no one mentions any characters that haven't been selected yet just discuss who ppl pick and usually ppl make a brief write up explaining why they picked who they picked.

it's a lot of fun and you should def play.

just keep an eye on the thread and we'll let you know when we're starting and then whenever it's your turn you'll get a PM letting you know it's on you and usually we give ppl like 8hrs to make their selection before they're skipped.

cheers.
