The Pentagon Challenge: One Man, One Aim
What is this story about?
Here I am, my first story against my really long sabbatical. Now though, I’m in the middle of my summer break, so I have lots of time on my hands to create awesome GFX (yay!) and write stories. This story will hopefully keep me going for a very long time, because this story will be my attempt at the Pentagon Challenge. What this means, is that I have to start with the lowest experience possible, and win all five major trophies (the European, African, Asian, North and South American Champions Leagues).
The idea for this story is that I won’t update every month, but have approximately five or six updates per season. A couple of these will be match updates, and others will be about transfers or about me changing to a different club. I will also try to include some interviews, newspaper articles and more of that stuff. Of course all the updates will include lots GFX (yay!).
Who am I?
I will be playing this story as Seb Platter, not to be confused with mob boss Sepp Blatter, who is a 22-year-old man from Ludlow. Despite never playing football, he has always had a passion for football, and is a big fan of Shrewsbury Town FC. The reason Platter has stepped into the managerial world, is because of something he yelled when his favorite team conceded a goal.
When watching Shrewsbury being humiliated, he exclaimed “I bet you I’d make a better manager than most of the fucking losers out there, especially that prick John Carver! You know what, I think I’d even be able to win the Champions League in every fucking continent!” Which seems to be a weird thing to exclaim after seeing your team concede a goal, but trust me, he did yell those exact words.
Three days later, Platter was on a plane to North America to try and secure a managerial role there. The reason he chose North America to start in, is because most leagues are really, really bad and he wouldn’t need a license to manage a club there. The first stage of this long and tiring journey would be to win the North American Champions League. The logical path to take here, would be to work his way up and win the trophy with a club from the USA or Mexico. That’d be the easiest way.
Is there anything else you should know about?
Yes, yes there is. To play this story, I’m using the FM Leagues Megapack, by Claassen. That’s the only mod I’m using. As always, I won’t be using FMEL or any other modifications that will make the game a lot easier for me. To start with, I’ve loaded up North America.
