Vertigo Universe RP
« on: May 13, 2011, 09:53:00 PM »
Hey Everyone,

This is my first time role-playing so I'll keep this really broad for now....

Was looking at starting a RP based within the universe of Vertigo comics, or comics along the darker, adult oriented vein (Such as 100 Bullets, Hellblazer,  Transmetropolitan, Sandman etc)?

If you have any ideas or want further clarification, let me know!

Interestingly enough a game similar to Y: The Last Man was on my mind yesterday, (though I can't remember if that's a Vertigo or Image comic) Also Fables was an epic series (Once again not too sure if it was Vertigo or Image, they kind of blur together in my mind lol)

Just be hard to play a hardass like John Constantine.. gets beat up by mundanes.. gets away with flipping off the First of the Fallen.

Sorry, for some reason,  I wasn't emailed that there were replies.

I'll wait till there are a few more people interested to get anything more concrete down, but was wondering if people thought a theme/existing storyline(like the brujeria storyline) should be applied to the role-play, or does everyone for example happen to meet at the pub?

Hit me up!

The only vertigo comic that Im familiar with is Constantine, which was very, very good. But I am curious.

Yeah, I was thinking that dark, punk philosophical type of fantasy.... There are some pretty good characters/plots to choose from

I enjoyed the dark humor in it, as i am a fan of dark humor in general, like the TV series dead like me.

Have you read "Bite Club?" I think a game based on those minis could be fun.

Cool. There's a bit of interest out there!

Can I get some thoughts on how this will begin, ie. Make our own characters or use existing ones?
I've never started a rp before, so I could use some help!!

What sort of setting were you thinking? Vertigo doesn't have one set time and place, Yorick Brown's future isn't the same as Spider Jerusalem's, for instance.

Was hoping people would vote, try out the whole democracy thing! Or at least port their preferences

Hm, maybe narrow it down to one universe where everyone is running around simultaneously at the same time? For example, you can have characters from Scalped, interacting with those from Lucifer while Spider Jerusalem time travels backwords. [If that makes any sense at all! lol]

Will need some shrooms to figure that out...

How's about limited to Hellblazer, Sandman, Lucifer Universe. That covers quite a bit...

Are you going freeform with this?  It might translate well to MnM or WoD?

Freeform means writing as if you're telling a story and going with it's flow. And system based RP means to use some sort of system to decide the outcome of things and how the story would progress.

I guess MnM or WoD are the types of system which she was referring to. I've never done system based RP's myself, always prefer freeform..so I don't know.

Im only really familiar with Constantine, thats the only one of the Vertigo ones that I know, it makes me unsure if I can play this.
