VaporSnail already has HOURS of entertainment created.. we wanted to put a little of the VPR-TV story out there before being all "donate" or "pay us THEN we'll make it" but it has come at a great cost.. We moved our equipment from personal use to more mid-professional grade stuff. However, enough of the boring stuff. So what is this?
VPR-TV is a VIRTUAL TV STATION (it's NOT a real TV station) and the entire universe around it is the show. Virtual Insanity Wrestling (VIW), our inaugural show is not a wrestling e-federation but rather a show.. about a wrestling show.. that is circulating in the VPR-TV universe.. which will unfold many secrets, stories, and surprises.
A simple breakdown is as follows: Slaughter Zone is our regular show. Think of it like Raw but 30 minute'ish format. Miscellanea is exactly what it says.. miscellaneous. It allows us to step backstage, and into the virtual lives of the wrestlers and personalities of VIW, these episodes will be shorter but more frequent. It's NOT filler, it's side stories so we can keep ourselves in the picture on a more regular basis.
Again, Virtual Insanity Wrestling is NOT AN E-FED. It's a show about a wrestling show. Features comedy segments, stories of horror, tales of intense situations, and cross over stories that lend branches in other products we will release soon. This is a VERY complex universe and if you blink you could miss something.
Videos are 720x480, however, we WILL be providing (eventually) a 1080p version in an attempt to at least appease those who'd want that. 480p is how it has to be for now due to the nature of both capture and editing. This upgrade will be based on show interest over time.
VPR-TV's website is 100% original code. It's not just a wordpress site, and will expand into new features as VPR-TV's story expands and grows with these new surprises and features. Yes.. the website is PART OF THE STORY. Almost everything is.. except this Patreon.. that's serious, and we won't be bugging you with personal data/our lives much. Mostly all "in universe" meaning rather than bother you with cliché interactions we will even ask for donations in fun and unique ways using the VPR-TV universe to sort of "speak to you" through them. We want to do our best to keep it all about the stories and characters and not ruin it by making it too personal and spoil the fun we're trying to have and provide for you.
BBS Membership comes at the $10+/mo level mostly to keep some sanity on there. It's an extension of the show but we'd also like to share some of the games, discussion boards, voting participation (guests can read votes), internode conferencing areas, files and more. If the BBS "takes off" we'll gladly maintain more games, tools and whatever else is fun. Guests may read the messages posted by VPR-TV BBS staff and VIW wrestlers. Think of it like a sort of "in universe" version of Twitter. Very little is accessable beyond this "Twitter concept" as a guest of the system. We currently have 6 nodes (again, if it takes off, we'll expand it), which means 6 people may be online at a single time. The website will show the last message posted in the VIW message board so you can keep up without logging in, but to keep up on the archive, you will want to do so.
Guest logins to the BBS are Guest1 through Guest6 with a password of "Guest" (without quotes). If somebody is using one of the accounts, you will have to use another. If all of them are used the system is "busy", like a phone. Similarly emulating the situation of BBS busy signals back in the day. ;) We'll do our best to keep this feature fun and entertaining.
Thank you for trying out VPR-TV, and we hope you continue to tune in and help us also continue. Please support your favourite independent creators.
