I noticed when I had a feeling so I looked at the About Page...and there he was.

Will be interesting how Strop writes it in...maybe Gantic is doing the course and he accidentally falls into the Moderation Coronation Room...hitting the Magic Sceptre of Moderation...so he becomes a Mod.

Strop did you know this would happen beforehand? Like had you planned for this?

I reckon it will have to be written in as accidentally happening, otherwise the other characters would get angry...

And so he ascends....

Can i make a character?

Yes, of course you can make a character.
If you are going to use it for this, on the other hand, you should email that character to the wom-email asking for a cameo.

Strop, i sent in my draft the day before Friday. Did you get it?

Yes. Which is why you are on the list of "Entries we have gotten" a few pages back.

@KR:
No, Strop has not been planning it, but he most likely have been aware of the chance of it happening. As far as I know, he has been torn between wanting a new mod because it was needed, and really hoping for none due to the WoM.
Whether or not it will be implemented into the WoM is a different case, especially since such a moderation kinda stops the WoM.

That's why I think Gantic should accidentally land in the castle in the Moderation Coronation room...

Would that not be like a sign? Like "Oh, that happened? Well, gratz, you are the new mod! Everybody, go home."
Since the original way of selecting a mod is by the wheel of moderation in the first place, which is made up by luck and coincidence.

I'm drawing the end of the chapter. Most of the entries are in and Flipper has pulled out. I'll have to figure something out, but that shouldn't be a problem.

Gantic being modded constitutes a discontinuity between the real world and the fictional universe of the WoM. Originally the WoM was supposed to be finished before Carlie's wedding and subsequent honeymoon was finished (late September) but since it takes about 3 times as long to get entries in as I anticipated, this is not the case. The timing of Gantic's modding was appropriate, otherwise.

As of yet there I haven't done any official thinking of how to reconcile the two, as this would require me to talk to Gantic in quite some detail. But rest assured that I'll have it sorted by the time we get there.

Just pretend it didn't happen? SO DIFFICULT! Just say that this is on a separate timeline and would theoretically end in September when Carlie is getting married, when Gantic isn't a mod, making it not a problem. Also then you could just say "Good news! None of you won! Gantic did! Thanks for playing."

Trust me, there's ways and means to make this fit in a way that is epic, and so that is what I will do.

It will likely require some detailed knowledge of Gantic's writings on this forum, which I do have, since Gantic and I have some in-jokes that we have, in fact, been swapping in the course of the WoM. If you noticed.

I still think you need to make Gantic crash through ArmorCastle and land in the Moderation Coronation room and hit the magic sceptre of Moderation thingo. I mean that plan is flawless.

Strop...you really though you could have this set to a timeline after you saw what happened with the MWT?

Even so...you were there to yell at us in the MWT...and look what happened!

I think what killed it was the ending of the American school holidays.
