I'm returning from a very long role-playing hiatus. I'm hoping to see if anyone is interested in joining me for a Super Smash Bros. RP. Of course the RP will lend itself to developing random illicit relationships between various characters, human and non, male and female, hero and villian, and that will make it interesting. However, I am also hoping that that will not be the primary focus. I would like to develop an RP with a story and goals for the characters involved. The sexual situations and resulting drama would merely be a part of it. That being said, here are my ideas:
As far as character selection, participants would be allowed to use any characters that ever appeared in any nintendo video game (including third party but not including games that did not originate as a game, i.e. movie-based or novel-based games.) Once you selected a character or characters to play as, they would be yours and your name would be placed beside the character on the front page.
There would be fights in the style of Smash Bros. However, in order to prevent arguments and disagreements, the results must be decided before hand by all participants and then the fight would merely be played all to reach the end conclusion.
I was thinking that the story could revolve loosely around the creation of Porta Omnia, a structure housing various teleporters that can transport the Smash Bros. instantaneously to their various worlds (such as Hyrule, the mushroom kingdom, etc.) With the idea being that prior to this they had to arrive at the planetary home of the Super Smash Bros. Stadium by spacecraft. Naturally, with the convenience the new portals would cause there would also come the danger of misuse or worse--the portals coming under the control of someone sinister.
The setting: A pristine planet called Minerva where the Super Smash Stadium resides. It has become a huge vacation spot for various worlds throughout the universe. The Stadium building includes-of course-the stadium where the fights are held, as well as various other attractions such as a shopping mall, gym, bowling alley, food courts, and indoor gardens. The stadium grounds include an amusement park, a pokemon zoo, an oceanside beach walk, a trailer park for the Smash Bros., and a mansion-turned-hotel for guests and high profile vacationers. Other possible settings beyond Porta Omina might include the worlds that participating characters originated from.
Here is what the character sign up sheet would look like:

I would recommend limiting yourself to a maximum of 3 characters to start, to give other people a chance to get good characters, as well as so you don't become overwhelmed.
Does anyone think this might be a fun rp idea? Any questions, comments, or suggestions?
