After much craving and little satiation, I’ve decided to take the plunge and offer my own submission for a heroic RP! If you're interested in a character, please PM me and I'll let you know if I feel you're the right fit. Don't be upset if I decline or suggest another character; think of it as auditioning for a role.
What is the Setting?
The setting is the DC universe but with a twist, all the heroes and villains are female (a la Ame-Comi)!
Will there be a System?
You won’t need to know any system to play, AT ALL, but there will be a system working in the background. For those who care about the rolls taking place behind the scenes, I’ll be posting them in a separate thread. I’ll also include comments with each roll and the rules in said thread so that they can tell what’s happening, although I hope everybody will be more focused on the story than the number crunching.
Will the characters be canon or originals?
There will be a list of playable canon characters although some have been weakened to help accommodate them into the plot, such as Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. They’ll still be more formidable than their peers in a straightforward fight but they’ll need help to overcome certain challenges. As for original characters, they’ll be slightly weaker than their canon counterparts but strong enough to contribute.
Also, for those who are wondering, the game definitely has space for males but they will have to be regular humans. PM me if you’d like to create a male character so that I can help you build something which will fit the plot and at least be relatively useful. If you’re interested in creating a love interest, all the better.
How familiar do I need to be with the material?
I’m willing to help people with the material so don’t hesitate to ask if you’re interested in playing a character but know only a bit about them. Just be sure you know at least a little. I do want to keep the game relatively close to canon but within reason, I do not expect a player to know every tiny detail about the character they’re playing, only enough to portray them properly. That said, this game explores the characters near the start of their careers, so there isn’t much to learn.
Heroes or Villains?
You can play either although the initial plot revolves around a classic hero and villain team-up, where they set aside their differences to battle a common threat. The team-up won’t last for the entire RP.
What is the Story?
This is just an interest check so I’m still writing up the plot. It will not follow the comics and will likely take a bit since I have to try account for EVERY decision the players might make during the course of the game. This is also one of the reasons that I’m trying to limit the more powerful characters.
At the moment, the plot works under the impression that the characters have been fighting crime but nothing “world threatening” just yet. This will be their first foray into saving planet Earth; hopefully the start of many adventures together.
Will the game be Linear?
The game will follow a path but it will be filled with choices which will have a variety of consequences...
How will the game treat Sex?
Sex with NPCs will be possible but my main focus will be keeping the plot coherent and on course, so they’ll all be treated as fade-to-black. It’s probably best to look to other players if you’re seeking something more in-depth.
Plans for the Future?
While the initial plot will be a team effort by the characters, which will hopefully give everyone a chance to shine, the subsequent chapters will be treated a little differently. My idea is to have each chapter, after the initial plot, focus on a different character, giving them an opportunity to hog the spotlight for a bit and test their abilities.
Would you like some Help?
I would but not in the way you might be thinking. What I really need are people to bounce ideas off, to help me create coherent chapters and spot any loopholes players might exploit. I also might need a second narrator, depending on how much interest is shown.
What characters may I Select?
Any woman in the Ame-Comic Universe or the DC Universe is up for grabs but only after I give them the thumbs up. I know there are some insanely powerful characters out there and I don't see them fitting well, just try and pick something more down to earth, in the line of Batgirl, Beast Grrl, Big Barda, etc.
