Post by post we will create 6 idol artists. Each artist has 8 details such as name, debut song name, etc. Each post will add 1 detail, until we have made 6 artists.
How To Play/Order:
In quick summary, the post order is:
Post 1: artist number, name, type, name's meaning (optional)
Post 2: # members, member names, facts/anecdotes
Post 3: debut song name, sound, subject, concept (optional)
Post 4: lyrics
Post 5: point dance, killing part
Post 6: debut styling & aesthetics
Post 7: debut M/V
Post 8: statement of promotion, agency name
Detailed instructions for all the steps:
Post 1: First, please state which NUMBER artist is this so far in the thread to help us keep track. (ex. first post will be artist #1, after we made 1 artist it'll be artist #2)
Now decide the artist type, artist name, and optionally the name's meaning.
- (Note: While the prompts are based on GGs/BGs, the artist type can be any type of musical artist, such as soloist, band, co-ed group, etc., they should easily be able to adapt any prompts that don't apply to them.)
Post 2: After deciding the number of members, list the members' names that the public will know them by, which can be real names or stage names. Then, give some facts or anecdotes about the members. If artist is a soloist, then the facts/anecdotes can be longer.
Post 3: Write an introduction for the debut song giving it a name, describing its sound/musical aspect, and its subject/lyrical aspect. Optionally, you can give some idea about the concept for the whole debut.
Post 4: Write the lyrics for the first verse and chorus of the debut song. You can denote details such as how a part is sung/rapped, overlapping parts, words that are in English, etc.
Post 5: Come up with the point dance and killing part when the artist performs on stage. This could include the dance moves or the lyrics at that part. If the artist doesn't dance, then talk about the highlights of their performance.
Post 6: Describe a few bullet points of the styling & aesthetics of the debut. You can use pictures to help. If a concept was stated previously, you have to at least include it in some way, but you can also add other things to it.
- Some ideas for this part could be: clothes, hair, make-up, accessories, jewelry, coordination of the group. Colors, patterns, materials, "aesthetics", subcultures, symbols, moods, sources of inspiration.
Post 7: Describe some scenes or content of the debut music video.
- Some ideas for this part could be: scenes, shots, sets, props, setting, storyline.
Post 8: Finally, write a statement of promotion for the artist, and somewhere on it include the agency name. When it comes time for voting, this statement will be listed right after all the other details about the artist. You can write anything you want as the statement, just remember to include the agency name somewhere.
Each post/prompt is meant to be done quickly in a couple minutes. In terms of content, it can be serious or funny, just staying within the forum rules.
You might wonder, why do we have to stop at 6 artists, why doesn't the game go on infinitely.
Because this is only Round 1 of Idol Creation Game. Once we have made 6 artists, I'll make a poll in Lounge where people can vote for who should make their debut. You will get to vote for 2 out of 6 artists, and the top 4 artists in the poll will get to move on to round 2, which will be a similar type of game as this one, just with different details that make sense for after debut such as fandom name, official colors, controversy.
This is the plan for future rounds if Round 1 gets finished:
|Round 1 - proposing||Round 2 - debut||Round 3 - comeback||Round 4 - SMA|
|4 out of 6 move on||2 out of 4 move on||1 out of 2 move on||1 will get the ROTY award|
If you have questions you can go on my wall. You are encouraged to post as much as possible without double posting, I will also be doing this to finish the game faster. Finally, watch the thread in settings.
