Crossroads - Interactive Reality Show Experience!
« on: June 07, 2012, 01:54:15 PM »
WELCOME - This is an Interactive show! Please vote on our current poll/part take in our current interactive event:
http://poll.fm/3rq2b


RULES:
Each week competitors will part-take in a challenge. The Challenges will vary judging on who will make the challenge - because our three judges have 3 personalities. The Challenges can be:
Elimination Challenges Can basically be anything. They're usually skill or other competitive activity related competitions, with one person coming on top and one person coming the shortest. The person who would loose the challenge would be eliminated, the winner, though, would get an award, such as immunity from elimination or another kind of award
Award Challenges will take place when there is no need for elimination. The competitors will take challenges in singles or groups, with the formation, coming out on top getting the award that will be either pre-decided or decided later.

There will may be a different challenge later in the game...
Contestants are eliminated from the house with elimination challenges, vote offs or the public vote (you vote, via poll) or the combination of all of those.

Additional rules may be set later.


Competitors still in the game:
Kenny
Ela
Jehtro
Quinn
Rebecca
Rooney
Kelly
Clayton

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, to the all new reality TV Show extravaganza - coming soon to your TV Program! My name is Brook Hudson, your Super Mega host and this... IS CROSSROADS!

*Applause*


Yes, it's the new, unique and fully interactive, reality show - Crossroads! It will feature Glamour, joy, happiness, tears, aggression and sheer brutality. 8 competitors will enter, hoping for their shot at the stars and above, but in the end, only one can leave with
ONE. MILLION. DOLLARS!

*Applause*




Our contestants have been chosen and it's only a matter of time now... Who wants it the most? Who will be willing to push themselves to their limit and beyond to leave with the money. What strategy will they take? We'll find out this fall, as the house they will be locked in - we call it The Crossroad - is being built.

But in the time they will be locked inside, fighting for survival via voting, fighting, quizzing or any other kind of elimination concepts you might think of, they will have to be evaluated at all times. Ladies and gentlemen... I will now give you a slight hint of our celebrity judges & commentators who will be joining me every week from the start 'till the end in this studio. Of course, if you haven't been living under a rock in the last decade, you won't have any trouble finding out their names... They ARE the most iconic things in pop culture in the sim world...

Can you guess their occupations?


Well, by the looks of it, all can I say is, this is going to be a FAB season! Who will be our competitors? Where will they live and what will they have to do to survive in The Crossroad? All that and more, coming this fall, to your TV screen!

Until then... BYEEE!



Authors note: What I am looking to create here is an entirely new concept of a 'Big Brother' project. I created 8 different characters that will enter the house. The eliminating will either go by how popular a member is, how skilled they are, or what do you think of them... It's basically a project with a story progression, as I created all the characters and will be playing the game. This can go far beyond only 8 sims if it picks up. But the main idea is YOU interacting in the story in various ways! Official rules are TBA. The story starts when I finish with schoolwork and will be able to build a house for them :D
Feel free to leave a comment with ideas, suggestions etc.

Preshow - Introduction

Introducing the Commentators

Welcome back to The Crossroads - Preshow, your fully interactive reality show experience! Last time we tuned in, we announced that we will introduce our 3 celebrity commentators and critics that will be joining me in the studio week in and week out! So, without further'a do, let's take a sneak peak at the first member of our crossroad family!


MEET MARVIN Q
Quote
Woohoo, potions and nectar - that is the moto of Rock n' Roll and this sim has it all - Everything about him SCREAMS Rock n roll. His hairstyle, clothing, thinking - everything. Rock might even be flowing through his veins. He's Bridgeport's hottest rock star, frontman and lead guitarist of his band Mirror of Alias, an acclaimed actor and a fashion icon. He is Marvin Q.

TRAITS:
Good Sense of Humor
Charismatic
Virtuoso
Star Quality
Vehicle Enthusiast

LTW: Rockstar
 

Brook: Please welcome, Marvin Q!

*Applause*

Brook: Marvin, welocme!
Marvin: Cheers!


Brook: Marvin, we introduced you as the Ayatollah of rock and rolla, can you tell us a bit more about yourself?
Marvin: There is not much to say, really... I play the lead guitar part and sing for Mirror of Alias and am also doing a side project called Pearl Idols at the moment... The band Mirror of Alias has been a trending musical staple in the sim world since what - 2003? And that's about it. *smiles* I live a pretty rockstar life really...
Brook: That sounds great. And what do you think you will be able to bring to the commentating table?
Marvin: Well, our winner will become a pop icon to say the least, so I think I have the know-how about everything in right now... I think I can come up with some pretty rad challenges if I want to too! *winks*
Brook: Sounds awesome! Now, let's see who will be joining us in the studio!
Marvin: Let's!


It's Nikki Rain!
Quote
In the world of glamour and constant trend changes, there has been one girl to rule them all. From fashion shows to art projects, it was her who stood out. As the designer for some of the biggest fashion companies, her creations have appeared on front pages of magazines like NOW and IMAGE, when, in her artistic counterpart she has achieved success in having her biggest masterpiece - A Squared World - showed in the National gallery of Champs les sims - France. She is a multi-tasker and a multi successor - It's Nikki Rain!

TRAITS:
Animal Lover
Artistic
Good
Neurotic
Vegetarian

LTW:Fashion Phenomenon

Brook: Please welcome, Nikki Rain!

*Applause*

Nikki: Greetings and Salutations to you all behind the TV screens! I am NIKKI RAIN, fashio-
Brook: We've already told them that! Have a seat, will you? *Smiles*
Nikki: Very Well...



Nikki: Hey, Marvin!
Marvin: Sup, Nikki?
Brook: Oh, you guys know each other personally from before?
Nikki: Actually, Marvin dated my collage roommate a while back, when he wasn't such a big time rock star...
Marvin: Yeah, You'd have to see what Nikki had done with their dorm... That place was an Artsy-Fartsy mess!
Nikki: Thank you, that was so very kind... *rough look*
Marvin: I meant it in a good way...

Brook: Well, what a nice occasion that is! But let's get back to Nikki for a bit now... Nikki, being an icon in the world of creation, do you think your word might count the most in the show?
Nikki: Well, for me, any reality show is based on creativity and imagination. You need to be creative to forge a plan for the win. And MY challenges will put the competitors to the test for sure!
Brook: You know, that is really true, creativity is essential... Can you give us an example?
Nikki: Well, It's not just about skill or socialization, you know... It's really about combining the two and adding the third - most important element - imagination. Originality is what gets you to the top of household week in and week out, avoiding elimination. I can find a way to combine all of those elements together in one big challenge.
Brook: That sounds AMAZING, Nikki... Well, We have our fashionista and our big bad rockstar... Who's last, but not least on our list of celebrity critics and game forgers? Let's find out!


Trevor Angelo is The Name
Quote
Angelo? -Here! The 4 time champions league winner, Captain of The Bridgeport Blingers Football Club, pop icon and current record holder for most goals scored in a single season is arguably the biggest sports icon around. The poster boy of HEALTH&FITNESS magazine is hoping to bring a fresh approach to the reality show that the world has not seen before - without committing any fouls. Now, let the whistle blow, and let the dogs out on the playing field - with TREVOR ANGELO in charge!

TRAITS:
Athletic
Disciplined
Good Sense of Humor
Loves the Outdoors
Schmoozer

LTW:Become a Superstar Athlete

Ladies and Gentlemen, please, give a warm round of applause to TREVOR ANGELO!

*Applause*

Trevor: What's going on  WORLLD!

*Applause*


Brook: Trevor, Welcome to The Crossroads!
Trevor: Well, thank you very much, Brook! And hello to you too, Marvin, Nikki!
Nikki: Good day, Trevor!
Marvin: Trevor Angelo, It's an honor! *Shakes his hand*
Trevor: The pleasure is all mine! And please, call me Trevor, we're all friends here, ain't that right, Mrs. Hudson *Laughs*
Brook: That's the spirit, Trevor - loosen the tension a bit! Now Trevor, You are the biggest sports Icon we could find for our show - with a reason of course! Can you explain more to our fans, please?
Trevor: Sure Thing... You see,  Crossroads won't be just your everyday Reality television show where members of the house and the viewers are the only ones who decide about the competitor's fates. The producers wanted to create a TV show where really the most deserving competitor will win. So the winner won't be just based on his popularity, but also his skill. That's where I come in - being a master of athleticism, I was assigned to create challenging projects that will really showcase their real talents... It gives an extra factor to the show in my opinion!

Brook: And that is the truth! And that were also the ending words to tonight's show. Ladies and gentlemen, this pre-show will end with an announcement of a poll. Please, vote on which one of our 3 commentators has left the biggest mark on you? Who do you like the most? The winner of the poll will be the first one to put together a challenge for the competitors, that we meet on the next pre-show... Untill then - Goodbye and Best Regards!


EDIT: Just found out that polls are not allowed on the forum for stories, so please, vote here =) http://poll.fm/3r0bo

@Widonja:

Would you please reduce the font size in your headings?  It's ok for them to be a bit larger than the standard font, but not too much.  14pt is as large as it needs to be, then 12pt for the regular text.  Bold and italics are also fine.

Thank you for all the support guys! The poll will be open until the next (and final!) preshow is posted - where I will introduce the competitors. I just need some time to build the house - as I am not high on ideas right now :D

Yes you can! And don't be afraid to share your opinion via comments also! You can freely post  for who you voted, or not... It can serve as a chat room for a reality show - interact all you want!

Note: Building of the house is going well. I have already layed down the bases and am moving on to furnishing...

Meet the Contestants!
« Reply #13 on: June 09, 2012, 10:08:27 PM »
Meet the Contestants! (part one - Kenny, Ela)

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to The Crossroads preshow, where we learn what will be going on in the hottest reality show this summer. My name is Brook Hudson and joining me in the studio are my 3 amazing co-hosts and commentators;
Famous Rock star, fashion model and playboy - please welcome - MARVIN Q!
*Applause, Marvin greets brook and takes his seat*
Next, A Girl who just continues to impress. The always extravagant and controversial - NIKKI RAIN!
*Applause, Nikki jumps on the stage and waves to the crowd, shakes Brooks hand and takes the seat*
And last, but not least - international sporting sensation - TREVOR ANGELO!
*Applause, Trevor runs up in a sporty fashion and greets Brook, then sits on his normal place.



Trevor: I can just smell it! Excitement is in the air!
Marvin: Sure thing, Trevor. The atmosphere is just so freaking good with people this loud!
*Applause*
Brook: That's right, and the audience has every right to be excited, as tonight is the night when we reveal our 8 competitors who have been chosen for a shot at glory! Nikki, what are your thoughts?
Nikki: I am dying to see the people! Over 35 thousand sims have auditioned for an entry in the Crossroad house, but the eight that have been handpicked by the staff have to be some kinds of people you don't just see walking on the street! Come on, bring them out! We're burning daylight!
Brook: You're right on that one. With out further to do, let's see our first competitor...


Announcer:
Ladies and Gentlemen... please, put your hands together for Doctor Kenny Bo!
Quote
Kenny Bo

TRAITS:
Bookworm
Disciplined
Genius
Handy
Perfectionist

LTW: The Tinkerer
*Applause*
Brook: Please welcome to the studio - Kenny Bo!
*Kenny walks on the stage, shakes all of the host's hands and sits down on the sofa*

Kenny: Thank you for your warm welcome.
Brook: Again, Kenny, welcome from my side as well. So tell us, Kenny, where are you from?
Kenny: I hail from a small family in Twinbrook, but my Grandmother was from Al Simhara.
Brook: I see... And what do you like to do in your free time?
Kenny: Well, I do not have a lot of free time, but when it is found, I usually focus on reading a good book, or perhaps part-taking in a debate with my companions.
Marvin: Kenny, you seem like a very intelligent guy - you were even introduced as Doctor. Could you tell us more about that?


Kenny: Certainly. I currently hold a PHD in quantum physics, technology and medicine. I am also going to the university of Political Science at the moment.
Trevor: Wow, that's quite a feed! Wait, how old are you again?
Kenny: I'm 33 years old.
Marvin: I'm not falling for that, Kenny *Laughs*
Kenny: Pardon?
Marvin: *Giggle* You could have NOT POSSIBLY achieved all that in a 33 year life...
Brook: It is true, Marvin! Kenny has turned 33 years old this February!
Marvin:...


Nikki: Well, Kenny, I have to ask you this. With all those smarts you have, the last thing you need is to join the Crossroad to earn money... Why are you here for, really?
Kenny: Well, it's all a big social experiment, really - you see, people who enter shows like this usually end up making themselves look like fools on national television and embarrass not only them and their family, but the entire country. I am here to stop this nonsense and build a greater tomorrow for the youth who will be watching this show - making sure that they don't idolize complete rednecks and eliminating them in the process...
Marvin: That was... uhm... nice? *smiles*
Brook: Well, thank you Kenny and see you on the show!
Kenny: Thank you.

*Applause, Kenny leaves*
Brook: Well, guys, what do you think?


Marvin: What do I think? I think that everybody in the house should watch their sorry behinds, because this guy is going to wipe the floor with all of them!
Brook: A bit harsh, we only know the first contestant...
Trevor: Marvin's right. The guy is a freaking genius, he's obviously in pretty good shape and he looks pretty sociable...
Nikki: Not so high on the sociable my self, Trevor...
Trevor: Well, yeah, but he has the abilities of defeating virtually everybody and anybody in the house...
Brook: Well, let's see who will be the first to stand in his way!


Announcer:
Ladies and Gentlemen... Give a warm round of applause to Ela Waage!

Quote
Ela Waage

TRAITS:

Childish

*Ela comes to the stage, smiles to the public and greets the hosts*
Brook: Welcome Ela!
Ela: aaaa! Hii! How are you? I'm great, I'm awesome! I'M ON TV!!!
Trevor: Haha, yes you are, Ela - how does it feel?
Ela: It feels awesomee! Hi Marvin, Hi Nikki, Hi Trevor, Hi Brook!


Brook: *Laughs* Calm down, Ela!
Nikki: Let the girl have a little fun! You were surely really nervous when you were on TV for the first time too!
Brook: True, True...
Ela: Ok, I'm ready!


Nikki: So, tell us more about yourself, Ela...
Ela: Not much to say, really... just a normal girl next door - still a teenager by heart *smiles*, what else, ooh - I love drawing and playing videogames, and sculpting, and hanging out with friends, and, and...
Marvin: Breathe, Ela, Breathe!
Ela: *Laughs* Yes and... that's about it... haha
Trevor: Well, what do you think you will bring to the house?


Ela: Well, can't say really, but I get along with everybody, so I don't see how anything could be negative... Sure I'm in it for the cash, but I'm also here to have a great time, WOO!!!
Marvin: That's great to hear! And how are you entering the house? Who are you leaving home?
Ela: Well, my parents and my little bro will be watching me...
Marvin: So you're not in a relationship?
Ela: Nope! What, you interested? *Laughs*
Marvin: *Laughs* I was more thinking on the basis if anything could happen in the house? *raises eyebrow*
Ela: Well, I wouldn't bet on it... but I won't jinx anything, haha!

Brook: Well, thanks for this energetic interview, Ela!
Ela: No Prob, and - see you in the house!
*Applause - Ela leaves*
Trevor: Such energy! She will certainly bring some dynamic to the house!
Marvin: It's great - it won't be just sitting around like some reality shows have. She's a piece of work!
Nikki: Yeah - cute and awesome work! The girl's great!

Brook: We will continue the conversation when we return, but that doesn't mean that your Crossroad experience ends here. Join our chatroom below and tell us all about what you think! We'll be back!



Author's note: It's 4 am, I've built the house and written this 2 introductions. Will continue tomorrow. So... Sleepy...

Brook: I must say, I'm impressed...
Trevor: What can I say, I was raised by a woman and I have a soft spot for this girl...
Marvin: She has a cause and that can win her some popularity points...
Nikki: Well, I don't know, lots of people get hot headed when it comes to stories like this...


Brook: Well, that's were we end off for now - after the break - we will come to know our last three competitors and will finally see where they will be living in the weeks to come! All that and more, when we return - ON THE CROSSROADS!

LTW: Living in the Lap of Luxury
Brook: Rooney Rowell, everybody!
*Applause, Rooney walks onto the stage, waves to the crowd and shakes everybody's hand. Then, he sits down.

Marvin: Welcome to the show, Rooney!
Rooney: Thanks, Brook! I'd just like to say Hi to everyone at home! Ma', Pop' and my Sister Maggie! Yeah!
*Applause*
Marvin: Awesome! Well, Rooney, Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Rooney: Uhmm... Sure thing! Well, I'm from Sunset Valley and work as a store clerk at home... What else, hmm.... *scratches head* Well, I usually spend my free time playing video games and hanging out with my friends... Or you know - Playing video games with my friends... ding ding ding - JACKPOT!


Marvin: I see... well, what do you think you will have to offer to the household?
Rooney: Well, I think I won't get in many fights - I usually get along with everyone pretty good... And what else... OH! I'll cook! I'll cook for everybody! I roll a mean meatball, you know! *Winks and laughs*
Nikki: And why are you in the game? Did you enter with any specific reason?
Rooney: I just think it will be a rad experience, you know! I mean, of course, one million dollars is a big deal, but getting here is already a huge deal! Which, though, makes your wishes so much better - oh golly - What if I really win? *Everybody laughs*
Rooney: Well - As I was saying - it's an awesome experience and am looking to make some friends too!

Trevor: That sounds great Rooney. Listen - no offence or anything, but I really need to ask you this - are you in any shape at all to compete - physically speaking...


Rooney: Well... uhmm...
Trevor: Just answer me...
Rooney: Well, I don't really work out, if that's what you're asking me...
Trevor: So, why did you apply in the first place, the application said...
Rooney: I know what the application said, but, it's not all about my physical shape now... It's a reality show, dammit! And like it or not, mister sports star - I am the majority. A lot of people like me are out there and like it or not, I am representing my people - people who just want to have fun - not judging on their looks! Just having fun! *Keeps his serious face at first, but then bursts into laughter and walks to Trevor - whispers something in his ear and sits back down*
Trevor: *Laughs* You had me there for a second. Any way, I don't like your cause, but I respect the way that you stand up for it! Rooney all the way!
*Applause, Rooney waves to the crowd and walks down the stage*

Nikki: What was all that about?
Trevor: Provocation is the key to success. I just thought he needed a little boost in confidence.
Nikki: You don't simply frighten the very last remaining body fluid out of a competitor, Trevor!
Trevor: *Laughs*

Brook: Nikki's right, but what's done is done... now let's get cracking with the lady that joining us next!

Brook: Uhm... sure... please, have a seat.
Brook: *whispers* Stuck up, spoiled little...
Kelly: What was that?
Brook: Oh, nothing!


Nikki: So Kelly, what was your motivation behind applying to join The Crossroads?
Kelly: What kind of question is that? The winner is awarded a million big ones! Chee - I think I came here for the 'wonderful and magical experience, meeting new people and having a good time'... Blah. You really believe all that garbage that they try to sell you. We are ALL in this for the loot. The Moolah! At least I'm woman enough to say it straight up. I AM HERE TO WIN and I AM GOING TO BEAT ANYBODY WHO TRIES TO STAND IN MY WAY!
Marvin: I like your aggression, girl! Tell us more about yourself. Wher' ya from? What do you do in your free time...


Kelly: Ugh... I'm from here. I'm from downtown Bridgeport. And what I do in my free time - well, you'll just have to wait and see *bends tips of mouth upward*
Brook: Well, how about this: Is there a special someone rooting for you at home?
Kelly: Pfff... Yeah, Like I've got time... And I'm guessing your follow up question is will I fall for anybody in the house? Judging on what kind of people usually apply to this kind of shows - no. I am here to win.
Brook: Well... Okaay, Kelly... See you in the show!
Kelly: *smirks, stands up and leaves*


Trevor: What was that?
Marvin: People have some issues, I know... At least I thought that they might try to win some popularity points for themselves
Nikki: What are you talking about?
Marvin: Oh you know, lots of people try to act to become crowd favorites. She's not winning any points with me on that one, but still, I think she is a major threat to everybody
Trevor: I'm with you on that Bro! They need to watch out!

Brook: Time's a wastin'! Let's meet our last competitor!

TOUR DE HOUSE!
Quote
THE CROSSROAD

This is The Crossroad from the front...

The main entrance area...

... Opens up into a big living room...

With a large TV Viewing area - that's where the contestants will hear from us,...

...And a cooking/dining area.


A door from the living room leads to an eight bed bedroom with a light up trophy in the middle. It symbolises the winner takes all spirit.

Another door leads to the main make up room - bathroom ...

Through which a smaller - bath and shower only room - the washroom!

From the lobby - there is a small door that leads to the confessional. Here, you will see our competitors yammer about their feelings and lifes... yay!

From the confessional and form the confessional only competitors will access the 'DANGER ZONE'. It's the room where they will fight for their staying in the game in one way or the other. The doors will be locked through most of the week.

The entrance's staircase leads to the skill floor - the floor purely dedicated to sims improving their skills. First, it's the friendly play room. Here, sims will be able to play games that require a partner. Chess. Foosball, Snooker... It's all here!

For Athletic souls, the house has a gym.

An Artist's corner for Artists...

And for the more disciplined souls - the house even has a DOJO.

A lovely indoor pool can be accessed from the hallway or the team play room.

And the last room on the tour is for our crazy minded sims who tend to create a bit more... extremely...

What do you think of the house?
[/size]


Ladies and gentlemen... this is it. We know our hosts. We know our commentators and we know where they will be living. Our last order of business is to announce the winner of our last poll... Drumroll please...

The winner and the host who will set up the first challenge is...


Nikki.
Nikki: Oh Happy day! Thank you for everybody who voted for anybody! I will not let you down, guys!

Brook: Nikki will set up the first challenge and announce the rules of the competition via TV to the cast when they settle in the house. For our next interactivity number - we want you - the viewer to do the next - send in your unique combination of two competitors. We will not tell you what the pairs will be like, nor will they benefit your favorite competitor or not. That is a secret yet to be revealed. So PM Widonja with a unique pair of two competitors.

Now it's time to make it official. The contest is under way NOW Untill next time - See you on the crossroads!

I'm still accepting, PMs, as I haven't gotten almost any, the story was unable to progress... If I will not get pairings, I will find a way to progress the story differently as originally planned...

Marvin Q looks an awful lot like Martin Xavier from The Mole. Were they based off the same model?

If you read the bio of Martin Xavier, it says there that he's his twin :D
I didn't really have time to create a new character and I'm playing a story with this two brothers  both chasing for the stars in their own ways :D

Week 1: Part 1
The contestants have finally moved in to the house. Their first task, however, was to gather around the big television to get some info on their first challenge.

As they all get comfortable on their respective spots, Nikki is shown on the TV.

Nikki: Hey Guys!
Everybody: Hey Nikki!
Nikki: Are you liking the house?
Clayton: It's awesome! EPIC!
Ela: It's Super amazing-o riffic!
Rooney: It Rocks!
Nikki: That's great to hear! Now, it's time to tell you about your first challenge. As you know, every week you will be part-taking in either an award or an elimination challenge. You'll be pleased to know that this week, nobody is getting eliminated!
Jehtro: *Rumble, rumble*
Quinn: Yeah!!
Nikki: This week, your challenge will be made from two parts. On saturday - the day the challenges will be happening - you will rate your household on who you like the most - that person gets 6 points - and who you like the least - 0 points. The other half of the challenge will consist of a surprise skill challenge, that will be pre-determined by our audience via poll. So, what you have to do this week is just spend your time actively - try to improve some skills, or just - you know - make friends! The choice of the strategy is yours! Ok guys, that's all from me... now just... you know... Have fun and I'll see you on saturday! Byee!
Everyone: Bye!

Clayton: So... What now?
...TBC


I know what YOU have to do now! You should vote on what skill challenge should take place on the first week! That can be done here: http://poll.fm/3rq2b
