A Wizard boyThat should be a multi-prop crowner.
I agree. There was discussion on Forever War. There should be a crowner with more options.
Gentleman Troper!I was just about to say the same.
Special trousers. Very heroic.
A Wizard boyBumping this after more than a month. Should we go with a multi-prop crowner here?
A Wizard boyOK, here's a crowner. I did add only the current option as it's the only one I can see - if there are others, please add them.
Added other options. Note that not all options are exclusive. Basically I think the problem here is a missing supertrope for hopeless wars in general. Hopeless War is the logical name for this trope. Then we should also create one or two subtropes around the more specific variations.
Io vs JupiterWhy would we need subtropes? We've already got tropes like Bug War, Robot War, Alien Invasion, etc — if a particular example is a Hopeless War and one of those, then we can just list it in both places. Tropes that are "this trope and this other trope at the same time" are generally frowned upon.
The redefinition and supertrope options are tied.
Rhymes with "Protracted."
A Wizard boyHmm ... is there anything to do here? I've rewritten the description to bring it in line with the crowner decision (Willbyr forgot to close the crowner, but I'll take the calling post here).
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
