    READ THE RULES BEFORE POSTING.

    Using the core idea from janeDoe, I thought this would be a fun "game" of sorts to play. I wonder how far it'll get before people lose interest/the forum shuts down. Basically, let's continue from where Animated left off and see where it goes via a round robin-style story.

    RULES:
    1. Don't ignore previous posts.
    Build on them, and don't ignore one just because you don't like it. If you post only to find that another post has been added to the thread before yours, edit your post to take that new post into account, which will be easier if you:
    2.Keep it fairly brief. The fun of round robin stories comes from one person not controlling the entire creative direction for a long time. 3 medium-sized paragraphs per post, tops.
    3. Keep it plausible/don't do stupid "and it ends" posts. You can be fairly silly or serious with your posts, but keep it within the bounds of what you think a group of reasonable writers would do. Don't post stupid contributions like "..And then Unicron came and ate everyone, the end." or "Then it was realized that Prowl was faking the whole time and got out of his pod, perfectly fine."
    4. (added since enough people don't seem to be getting it) Like most Round Robins this is a NARRATIVE-STYLE story, not an episode summary. Make sure your contribution reflects this.

    Alright then, game on! I'll start:


    The celebration was interrupted as a loud explosion sounded off from behind the crowd. Panicking, many of them started to disperse as several vehicles and a walker-robot entered the area, transforming as they did.
    Megatron smirked. "Ah, my personal general of destruction. I suspected you were nearby."
    Strika pointed at Optimus, charging up her back-cannons. "This is your only warning, Prime. Let Megatron and the others go, or you vill answer to us."


    Continue!

    Prime ordered his troops to attack Strika, only to be ambushed by the rest of Team Chaar. Spittor grabbed Optimus and swallowed him. Seconds later, he blasted him out towards Bumblebee.

    Meanwhile, on the faraway planet of Gaia, Waspinator began carrying out his own "plans", using Blackarachnia as a guinea pig.

    With BB and OP down, Sentinel decides to take command and supervise the attack on Team Chaar.

    However, Blackout comes onto the scene and flattens Sentinel. A massive battle begins.

    *Pause*

    Please follow the rules. "Somehow the Beast Wars start" is not a real contribution.

    *Unpause*

    Please please PLEASE do not ruin this before it even starts. Whys, hows, etc. are missing from your post. Go about it like a narrative, not just putting in "this happens because" posts.

    I don't like Beast Wars that much.

    ANYWAYS...

    Spittor eats the three protoforms and runs back to the ship with them while the rest of the team deals with the Autobots. Inside the ship is... um, how about Thundercracker and Skywarp? They stow the Protoforms away to be used sometime later.

    *sigh* Continuing from Vexza's post:

    Bulkhead, Ratchet, and Jazz quickly store Prowl's body behind the ramp temporarily and engage in the fight. Omega Supreme also readies his weapons, but before he can enter the battle, Oil Slick rolls up and transforms, hefting a huge cannister of greenish gas on his shoulder before tossing it at the behemoth.
    "Enjoy your Cosmic Rust!" Oil Slick laughs as the brown infection starts to spread up Omega's leg.

    Omega Supreme was losing his patience. He grabbed Strika and demanded that she called off the attack. He was promptly shot in the face. Now we was not only rusting to death, but the damage done to his head was possibly beyond repair.

    Oilslick quickly freed Megatron, who blasted a hole in Omega's leg.
    "Uh-oh, looks like the big bad is back!" said Jazz.
    "DIE Autobots!"
    "Oh, you want a piece of this, Meggy?" was Megatron's response.
    "NO, I want TWO!!" was the last thing Jazz heard before permanently going offline.

    YoungOptimus14, last chance. If you aren't going to take this seriously and post in a NARRATIVE manner-- i.e., explain how/why stuff happens, write it like a STORY, and stop commenting on others' posts-- then I'm just going add in a new rule for everyone to ignore your posts and continue like you didn't even contribute. Get serious or stop it.
    Now, continuing from deltaprime's post:

    "JAZZ! Sari yelled, hovering over to Jazz's ripped-in-two body. "Oh god, not another 'bot..."
    "Get out of the way, you pathetic excuse for a Cybertronian," Megatron said, backhanding Sari.
    "This is getting really bad!" Ratchet said to Bulkhead as he ducked one of Cyclonus' sword swipes. "We need backup, and we need it now!"
    "Backup then is to be coming!" Jetfire and Jetstorm replied as they rocketed into the area in their combined jet mode, followed by several other members of the Elite Guard.

    A breakout occurs, but Megs is left behind. Throughout the season, he does planing behind the back of the Autobots like Norman Osborn did in that one Marvel Knights: Spiderman arc while Onslaught and Shockwave are the one leading the Cons on the battlefield. Meanwhile, a backup file of Megs is uploaded into Sumdac's computer systems and he call himself Galvatron who gets his own body. Optimus, now Magnus, sends Team Rodimus to Earth to stop him. Meanwhile, a group of Autbot decide to ovethrow the "corrupt" Autobot government. The name of that team is called the Wreckers.

    Back on Gaia, Waspinator sees the result of his "plans". Blackarachnia had been mutated even further, much to the dismay of both.

    On Cybertron, a new Decepticon enters the battlefield, Counterpunch. He quickly gained favor in the optics of Onslaught and Shockwave, often spying on the Autobots.

    The situation on Earth goes from bad to worse as Galvatron starts smashing everything in sight.

    Megs will go after the fourth item that brought victory for the Autobots:The Magnus Hammer.

    Ok first and foremost

    NO Unicron.

    Its time for Animated to start creating som mythos of its own.

    Secondly, Technorganics are not the way forward. They're an anomoly and RARE.

    Thirdly...and I can't stress this one enough...No more Human villains (with the possible exception of a TF:A version of Dr Arkeville)

    Teen Sari actually getting involved in some battle maybe nice too.

    From there on in, I'd like to see Megatron and Galvatron as separate beings, not the usual upgrade nonsence.

    In the three seasons we've had the stroy arcs have pretty much revolved around the rebuilding of the decepticons and thier attempt to attack cybertron. So I could see season four being a continuation of that by another means.
    The Decepticons are few and scattered throught the galaxy, Megatron ordersthem to gather and search for the one thing that can expand their numbers...Protoforms.
    They've got to come from somewhere right? Everything that has been said until now kinda shows them to be a rare thing. SOmewhere/someone/something has to be making them. If the autobots have the only thing creating new protoforms on cybertron under heavy guard, maybe theres some old cybertronian legend about another source for them and megatron is hunting for it.
    The autobots have a double agent (or two) in deep cover with the decepticons. Sideswipe and Sunstreaker have a combined spybot mode (makes them as big as a decepticon and helps the spying) They discover the plot, inform the council of whats going on.
    Then its all go as Optimus leads his team (with some new members) on a race to find the protoform source before megatron does.

    New Bots, Old Bots, New planets and lots of battles...none of this drawn out pacing
