Do you like wrestling? Do you like video games? Do you like talking to people about wrestling and video games (among other things)? Have you ever thought about creating a character and telling his or her story?
Let’s talk about the SHOOT Project.
The SHOOT Project has existed in some form or fashion since 2001. In that time, it’s had many formats that have matched the circumstances of people’s lives at the time and has worked and evolved to get to where we are today. We are a nearly 20 year old fantasy wrestling organization with a solid core of staff and handlers that all work together to tell interesting stories surrounding the world that they’ve built.
Gone, though, are the days of required roleplays, matchwriting, and strict asks. What we are now is a friendly, welcoming environment that encourages personal character work and brings a new way to engage in matches. Want to run a bunch of characters? That’s fine too.
You might be wondering, “What do you mean, “new way to engage in matches”? We use Fire Pro Wrestling World for our match work. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a very deep wrestling game that offers a lot more in the way of complexity versus what you find in today’s WWE games. Don’t own the game? No problem. We have several people willing and able to do character creations for you.
Matches are not predetermined, so handlers get to be fans of the show, and as a result, they have all worked diligently to use the matches to help further their own character’s stories.
Ever seen a guy tell a story based off the fact that his character won a tournament match with a bulldog? You will here.
Have a family, so you’re worried about time away? No worries on that, we all do too. You’ll find this community loaded up with adults with families, full time jobs, and other responsibilities, so there’s a lot of understanding and leeway if things sometimes slip by. The show still goes on.
Want a TL;DR of this message?
Lowish commitment. Fun, creative environment. Engaging community built around Discord. Something to watch and be a fan of.
