Broken Picture Telephone: Round #12

Unread post by Balesz » Sun Dec 17, 2017 4:02 pm

This article is a copypaste from URV's last BPT article from RVL
Introduction:

Broken Picture Telephone is a game where five or more people are separated into two different groups – Interpreters and Artists – and play through PMs. The Interpreter's job is to briefly describe something, then it is the Artist's job to draw the description. Afterwards, the next Interpreter describes the picture they see to another Artist who draws it out, and so on. After the last player submits his entry, everyone switches to the opposite group and the second turn begins. Once the game is finished, the final results are shown to see how random (and funny) it can get.

If you wish to see the previous rounds, click here.

Rules:
  • All interpretations should be only one or two sentences long. Do not try to describe every pixel you see in the artworks.
  • All art submissions must be at least 512x512 square PNG files. They don't have to be masterpieces, but don't make them incomprehensible either.
  • Use only personal messaging or the like for transferring your entries. Do not give hints to the next player about what to write/draw next.
  • You must not make your artworks or interpretations public. The results will be posted once all the entries have been received at the end of the game.
  • Announce as soon as you send your entry to the next player.
  • If you do not submit your entry in three days, you will be disqualified.
  • Make sure to save your entries until the end of the round.
Participants:
If you want to join, please tell it to me somehow (here or in Discord), you can join until Vladmin finishes his art.

I had no clue how should i display progress, so i'll underline the player, who we are waiting for. Please notice me here or at discord if you sent your entry.
Notes:
  • Additional slots are available before the second-to-last player submits his first entry.
  • The order of players will be shuffled as soon as the game begins.
  • The game can only begin with an odd amount of players.
  • Please take note of the new rules! Artworks must be at least 512x512, and all entries must follow the new "rule" below:
Fun Rule:
  • Every entry must include a new reference to a random member of the community. This is available for both artworks and interpretations.
  • You are not allowed to include real life photos of the members in question, but you are free to use their avatar or any other representation of them.
  • You do not necessarily have to be direct about the references, so you could try being fairly vague about it. For example:
    - A Yeti could be a reference to Marv. Or a cat might refer to Cat.
    - The "still looks cool" in-joke could easily be a reference to Gel38, who inadvertently started this whole thing. I'm sorry.
    - A picture of the world exploding could be a reference to R6TE ruining everything.
  • In case your reference is extremely vague or an in-joke, please make sure to let us know what it was after the results are posted.
Let me know if you have any doubts about how the new rule works.

.

Relatively good news guys!

BPT is dead for a while now, but not anymore. URV asked me to remove him from the participants list a while ago, so I had to find someone else to take his place. I asked it multiple times at saloon, but no one answered, so i DM-ed Marv and he said yes!
So yeah, Marv is going to work on his entry.

Ah, yeah, I remember writing a post about that rule I disagree with, but somehow it disappeared. Or I just forgot to hit post.

Well, I think people will include references to other members anyway. It happened in the round we had on Discord too, and there there wasn't such a rule.
Moreover, generally, I don't like any unnecessary rules.

Well yeah, it's just an edited copypaste from URV's Re-Volt Live post, so that's why it has the rules, which is more like a "reminder".

Ah, so it's old. I think you should've mentioned that, as I noted you referring to 'Nero', which... well, we don't do anymore.

Well, you can see a (very) small sentence over Introduction. Also I removed the Nero part.
