(Classic Avengers) Revised Interest Thread
« on: August 30, 2012, 01:23:05 PM »

The Avengers are Earth's mightiest heroes!  After the Avengers West Coast initiative failed, Hawkeye and the others returned to New York to rejoin their parent team and now, once again the Avengers are whole.  But are the Mighty Avengers going to be enough to ward off what new threats of evil and villainy will no doubt threaten the world again?




This will be a freeform game in which the Avengers of the 90s are portrayed, though the actual setting will chronologically be in the modern day.  This means that if a canon character wasn't introduced until after 1999, they won't be available for play in this game.

Also, no mutant characters will be approved with the exception of Beast, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

For this game we will be approving canon characters only.  We have comprised a list of some of the canons along with a brief description of each.

TAKEN

Captain America
Thor (LunarSage)
Hulk
Ms Marvel (Josietta)
Hawkeye
Black Widow (loislanekent)
Wasp (AribethAmkiir)
She Hulk (EbonyQueen)
Black Panther
Iron Fist (Praxis)

AVAILABLE

*(If you have any questions about any of the canons listed here, don't hesitate to ask)*

Black Knight. Dane Whitman, the champion of Avalon who uses his magic sword and shield for Justice.

Photon Monica Rambeau is capable of transforming herself into any kind of energy: electricity, radiation, cosmic rays, you name it.

Mockingbird An ex SHIELD agent with a penchant for fighting with staves

Spider-Woman Jessica Drew isn't related to Peter Parker, although her roots are similar (radiation + spiders = Spidey-powers).

Crystal, Member of the royal family of Inhumans, wife to Quicksilver who commands elemental forces.

Luke Cage, super strong and tough hero raised on the streets.

Daredevil

Falcon, Sam Wilson one time partner of Captain America and possess the power of Flight.

FireBird, Bonita Jurez, can fly and generate blasts of flame.

Giant-Man, Hank Pym, founding Avenger who can increase body size.

Hercules, Olympian God with superhuman strength.

Moon Knight, Marc Spencer, has four separate identities a mercenary behind a mask.

MoonDragon, Heather Douglas, mistress of the mind including telepathy and telekinesis.

Quicksilver, Magneto's son, husband to crystal with super-speed abilities.

Sandman, William Baker, former villain who turns his body into a sand-like substance.

Scarlet Witch, Wanda Maximoff, probability altering hex powers. Ex Wife of the Vision.

Sersi, member of the Eternals known for her power to alter molecular structure of objects.

Swordsman, Philip Jarvet, master of bladed weapons.

Namor, king of Atlantis, with the powers of the sea behind him.

Tigra, Greer Grant Nelson, transformed by mysterious cat people into the present day version of their legandary warrior.

Vision, Robot created by Ultron. Ex husband of the Scarlet Witch.










NOTE:  Strength in Marvel uses the following table.  The weights listed are the maximum that can be lifted with minimal effort.  By exerting yourself you can lift one category above your 'limit' for short periods.

Underdeveloped Strength: Lift (press) 20 lbs or less

Human strength with little to no exercise: Lift (press) approximately 50 lbs

Human strength with regular exercise: Lift (press) approximately 200 lbs

Human strength with intensive regular exercise: Lift (press) approximately 400 lbs

Maximum Human strength: Lift (press) approximately 800 lbs

Low End Superhuman strength: Lift (press) approximately 1 ton

Class 10 Superhuman strength: Lift (press) approximately 10 tons (Example: Spider-Man)

Class 50 Superhuman Strength: Lift (press) approximately 50 tons (Example: Luke Cage)

Class 75-80 Superhuman Strength: Lift (press) approximately 75-80 tons (Example: Namor)

Class 100 Superhuman Strength: Lift (press) 100+ tons (Example: Hulk or Thor)


FIGHTING SKILL:  Sometimes we want to know just how good someone is at fighting.  Here is a chart to help with this.  Make sure and put your character's fighting skill class number on your sheet under Fighting Skill.  This is to help you gauge fighting ability for RP.  It's not 'stats' per say... just an aid.

Class 1: Little to no training or talent (Your average American)

Class 2: Some natural talent or training (Average military training)

Class 3: Regular training (Brown Belt Martial Artists, Professional Boxers)

Class 4: Intensive training (UFC Contenders, Special Forces Training with experience)

Class 5: Natural Talent with intensive training (High end martial artists)

Class 6: Superhuman Talent with intensive training (Among the best fighters on the planet)

Those are just a few examples of characters that were around in the 90s era.  We've no doubt missed some, like US Agent... :-)

I'm so confused... do I need to pick a different character or did I get the character I asked for in the last thread?  If so, then I need to submit a character sheet, yes?

My apologies, Aribeth.  This is the same game and you have still got a claim on Wasp.  I'll actually add named next to the reserved characters.  Hopefully that will help.  (lois, please let me know who reserved the characters that I didn't place names next to)

Yes, please submit a sheet for your character with the coded format on the first page of this Interest thread.  :-)

Sorry for taking so long to answer this, Phantom.  We discussed it at length and we've decided to say no to mutant characters (with Scarlet Witch, Beast and Quicksilver being exceptions as they were canon Avengers in that era).

For myself and all newcomers, what is this game going to be about exactly? Also what (in terms of sexual elements) will it include?

Thanks!

I don't forsee this as being a "superheroines in peril" type of game, if that's what you mean. 

The game shouldn't revolve around sex in my opinion, though there can be sex (of any variety) in it based on how the RP naturally progresses.  It's a game about the Avengers and their adventures/relationship dynamics.

I more meant is it going to be the characters lazing about Avengers HQ and how they interact with one another? Or more about missions and side missions, and them fighting villains.  And yeah, if they do happen to lose what the consequences might be... death, torture, fondling, rape, etc.

I'm not certain, but I suspect about half sandbox and half missions/action.
