Presenting... THE 1st ANNUAL (hopefully) TRAVELER'S GUILD PULP COMICS COSTUME CONTEST EXTRAVAGANZA!
======================================================================= WHAT: The Traveler's Guild Supergroup will be hosting their first-ever Costume Contest, dedicated to the halcyon days of comic book's primitive youth: The Pulps! WHERE: Atlas Park, Everlasting Shard, Starting Area WHEN: January 17th, 2021, 7:00:00 PM PST (Pacific Standard Time) HOW: Simply arrive with the character you wish to enter into the contest. We will have four judges ready to direct you to where to go and when judging will commence THE PRIZES: Over 1 Billion Influence in prizes, seperated into several categories, meaning multiple possible winners!
Q: Wait, what is the theme? A: Pulp
Q: But what is Pulp, exactly? A: Pulp is the forefather of the comic book industry of America. They are weird fiction, tall tales, and imagined myth, most popular in the early 20th century
Q: What are some good examples of the Pulp genre? A: Enduring classic Pulp icons include Conan the Barbarian, Flash Gordon, The Shadow, Red Sonja, and The Lone Ranger. Modern examples include The Man with No Name, Indiana Jones, Han Solo, and Master Thief Garrett
Q: Are Golden Age costumes acceptable? A: Due to the overlap with the decline of Pulps and the rise of Comic Books leading to the Golden Age, yes, to a fault.
Q: Where can I learn more?
A: Attached to this post is a .docx file going over the in's and out's of Pulp. This writeup is by no means comprehensive, and if the idea really intrigues you, I urge you to do some further research. You will not be disappointed!
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
