"Why do we still lack a bunch of open-source characters? Jenny's great, don't get me wrong, but it seems to me that more people climbed on the Jenny bandwagon than the open-source bandwagon."
-I guess I'll use this as an excuse to introduce a new open source character that I've done the initial design work for: Future Boy.
This boy from the 38th century set out to traverse the omni-verse of existence to explore and have a good time. He can travel to any timeline, any point in history, any imaginary universe you can think of.
The biggest difference conceptually between Future Boy and Jenny Everywhere is one of continuity (sort of). As a general rule, no two Jenny Everywhere stories star the same Jenny Everywhere. There are a few exceptions, but this allows very different takes on the character.
Future Boy is a little different. Future Boy can travel to any point in existence, but Future Boy himself is one character.(Of course, theoretically Future Boy could meet a different version of himself, but...) So, lets say Future Boy was to have his hand cut off or something- in all the following stories, he'd be missing a hand (Unless it grew back somehow). I'm really interested in getting this character out there, but I'm crap at website stuff, so I'd need serious help. I'd like to only have one website that everyone who writes this stuff can add to, but again, someone else would need to host the site, 'cause I don't know how to.
Editorially, anyone who would send a story would get posted without any problem. As long as nothing hugely bad were to happen to him (such as the whole hypothetical hand thing), all stories would be posted instantly. If something like the hand thing happened, a big time note would be posted on the site about it for new scripts.
I don't know how feasible this project would be, but I'm already working on an adventure staring him, and I'd love to have some assistance getting it up and running. If you're interested, let me know.
