Maybe the theme could be time travel crossovers? To include Another Eden or similar titles.

That's actually genius. Another Eden, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Radiant Historia, etc. Great idea.

+1 vote for Chrono spiritual successors, whether it's an existing real one or an original one a participant might come up with.

Oh yes, an overall crossover theme with time travel works. That sounds great. 8)

Just to clarify, is this a suggestion for specifically a theme about Chrono spiritual successors, or including those with the time travel crossover idea?

To tell you the truth I don't know what you mean by "time travel crossover". To my understanding a crossover is when two franchises meet so that phrase doesn't really click for me here.

But the games listed by Boo are all spiritual successors to the Chrono series, and feature time travel (there are others he didn't list that don't). I can get behind that, but to be more inclusive and possibly get more participation, I'd add on that it doesn't have to be an existing game, participants could come up with their own spiritual sequel in the form of a story, music, art, their own game, etc.

That's my suggestion.

Ah, OK. That makes sense now. Great suggestion!

By "time travel crossovers" I meant crossovers with any other media that includes time travel, not necessarily Chrono inspired. I think I like your idea more as it's more Chrono focused, and most successors to it are likely to include time travel anyway. Plus, I'd love to see any original ideas people come up with.

And I think I now understand the crossover suggestion. With that idea, a submission might be a picture of some time machines together (the Epoch, the Doctor Who TARDIS, the Bill and Ted Phone Both, and the Back to the Future DeLorean, for example), right? So the point wouldn't be to celebrate a crossover that already happened (example: Lucca appearing in Xenogears), but to create our own crossover? That makes more sense.

Now that I understand the original idea, I think the two ideas could be combined. We just need a carefully vague title like "The Influence of the Chrono Series" or "Chrono Allies", but with more thought put into it because that was top of the head.

Adding other media could potentially bring in other activity, too.  We could at least advertise it around and let creators create.

Yeah, I'm keen on either idea. Whichever we don't use could always be used in another event down the road. I'm all for something that drives participation and activity -- maybe it just appears that way because I've been so busy and not very active IRL, but the Compendium seems to have quieted down the past six months or so.

Anything to infuse LIFE in this place!

Something like "The Spirit of Chrono"? Maybe with a tagline of "Celebrating the success of the series through spiritual successors and crossovers"?

Sounds good. If crossovers are added, maybe the phrase "transcending time and space" could make for some clever wordplay.
