New ERA of Wrestling is looking for talent for its inaugural season!
New ERA ran as a traditional wrestling promotion from January 2004 - September 2010. After taking a few months to reevaluate the league, it has been re-opened using a "season-based" format.
What are seasons? Seasons are a grouping of six to eight shows using a set group of wrestlers. Wrestlers sign up for a single season. When the season is over, they can sign on for another season .. or they can leave. People familiar w/ Hyde's "Just Wrestling" will feel right at home in New ERA.
New ERA runs a single show, "Cyberstrike." Results are extremely short-formed. Imagine the old show reviews posted in magazines like The Wrestler or Pro Wrestling Illustrated. You get the basic "Wrestler A d. Wrestler B." In the summary section, each match is given a few lines to describe what happened.
There is a 1-RP, 2000 word maximum limit on Cyberstrike season shows.
Four times a year, New ERA will head to the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts for "premier events." Premier events will be written in full form as they will be "broadcast" on ESENtv.
There is a 2-RP, 2000 word maximum limit for premier event shows. The four premier event shows are Destrucity, BattleBRAWL, International Intrigue, and BANNED in the US.
There is a single championship belt in New ERA ... the New ERA Championship. As the old belts from the first iteration of New ERA will remain retired, the two wrestlers who held them will be given bankable shots at the New ERA Championship. There are two ways to bank a championship shot; the first is to win three matches in a row. The second is to be named a season's Most Valuable Wrestler.
In order to be named MVW, the top three roleplays from every single person in the season will be averaged. The wrestler with the highest average will be crowned that season's Most Valuable Wrestler. Banked championship shots can carry over from one season to the next.
Added points are tacked onto the three-best RP average if a handler worked on a season-wide angle with another wrestler that substantially improved the quality of the season.
Roleplays are judged on a 50-100 point scale. The roleplay must be RELEVANT to the match at hand. Character development roleplays are encouraged, and can be posted on the RP forums ... as long as the [CD] tag is posted in the thread title.
New ERA has recently moved its forums from FWCentral to its own dedicated forum .. so please forgive the lack of information that may be on there right now.. I'm slowly pushing all of the signed talent that is registered from our old forums to the new ones.
Anywho, please head to the website and check us out .. sign up for a season if you'd like!
