Hmm.... sure, why not. Just make sure that you base the theme of your song off of his Cave Story personality, not his personality in other mods. I believe there was a mod somewhere (perhaps it was Jenka's Nightmare? I don't remember) that had a secret area where the mushrooms had made a tribute to Ma Pignon, who was now dead, which was supposed to make you feel sad for killing it. Make sure that you don't confuse the two portrayals.
I will, I've never played the other mod, so I'm coming at this from the CS only personality.

Wow all these M characters that people have claimed. O_O

Okay I'll enter and pick Zett for now. The elderly Mimiga...he is a valid character for this, right?

And once again, one character per user definitely limits the number of participants, which considering the last competition, is what you want...I mean, of course there may not be a whole bunch of users who will claim every available character; but if such is the case, I hope you'll allow new participants to choose characters that have already been claimed, rather than limiting participation.

The "C" in "college" is for "crippling debt".

Repeats of characters are allowed. Do whoever you want, irregardless of who else is doing them.

My problem with using Zett or Chie or someone similar is that their personality is limited. They're stock characters. It'll be hard to produce strong emotions about the character through your theme.

Oh, I chose Zett mainly because Malco was taken, and I thought we were only allowed to choose unique characters based on the way you answered my last question. Which also kind of defeats the purpose of having to say the character we're choosing, but I guess it's more to see if it's "within the rules" etc.

I dunno; I think I'll stick with my choice for now. If it doesn't work out, then it doesn't work out, and I can just say what character I'll try next. Personally none of the Cave Story characters to me reveal much of their personality, but of course with characters that have lots of lines/cutscenes it's probably easier to determine a more definite personality for each of them.

What the HELL is that MONSTROSITY where your Avatar should be?


On an on-topic note, will do. I hope we don't get to a point where everyone even mildly interested is in it, leaving very few people with unbiased votes...

Then just make it a rule that you can't vote for your own? It'll reduce some bias maybe and at least encourage listening to others' entries.

I dunno, seems like kind of a weird thing to say that you hope you don't get a lot of participants. Let things just come as they are. People are naturally going to have some form of bias when making their decisions in these things; that's why it's for fun (I hope) and not a huge deal.

There's no way to track who votes for what in our poll system.

I'm pretty sure there's an option in the forum polls that makes it so it's publicly visible as to who's voted for what.

I've looked for it, I can't find it. This forum has the exact same layout as many of the other forums I've been on and it's not in the usual place.

It's right there, kind of hard to miss.

RSK, use the theme of Sue that you gave me for my mod ages ago.
Oh my gosh I forgot I did that ^^; I never did end up finishing it though. As far as the rules are concerned, I could still expand upon preexisting work because it won't be a remix nor transcription.

I forgot to add this, but like the previous challenge, the work has to be made after the start of the contest (so the day this post was made).

Wasn't the rule that you can use preexisting work as long as you expand upon it?

Mmm... no, if I recall correctly, it had to be made specifically for the contest. Unless it's a work that you've been working on and haven't finished, then that's fine. But in your case it's a finished work.

so if its not a finished work, does it count?
Yeah but didn't he say... whatever, if it's unfinished, then fine. But by "unfinished" I mean "It still needs a base and/or back up tracks and drums." not "I need to add a little bit of polish, like changing instruments or something."
