YOUNG JUSTICE: Eve of Destruction (Interest Check)
« on: November 18, 2016, 08:31:21 pm »


Since the recent announcement of Season 3 being confirmed, I am more excited than ever to start a game following the show's continuity, and I hope we see some elements of this stuff in it. This will take place following the conclusion of Season 2, with the key point being that the cliffhanger ending is about to explode into action. With that, here's the premise I came up with:

The universe as we know it is in dire peril. With the unholy alliance of Vandal Savage's War World and Darkseid's Apokolips weaponry, preventative measures have to be taken. The Green Lantern Corps is overwhelmed and the Justice League is largely operating off-world to do what they can to stem the tide of pre-emptive attacks that will culminate in a universal domination by the most evil beings imaginable. But that's in outer space, we don't care about that. Something scary is happening on Earth, too.

The arrival of the mysterious Raven and her ominous tidings herald the arrival of Trigon, an otherworldly demon bent on devastating the earth if he's allowed to cross over. Even more jarring, the arrival from an uncertain future of Terry McGinnis, claiming to be Batman and wielding a high-tech batsuit that impresses even Bruce Wayne. McGinnis brings a dire warning that in his time, only a handful of Justice League members still live, a crisis of mysterious origin responsible for wiping out the majority of all active duty members.

Can the current roster of Young Justice, along with newcomers, overcome these challenges, and avert the terrible fate the earth, and the rest of the universe, may be condemned to?


So yeah...I figure this would be a good setup. Minimal Justice League intervention, a looming crisis that the Young Justice crew will be able to eventually go out to help the Justice League with once the threat of Trigon has been dealt with. So, who wants in? Pretty much any characters featured on the show are fair game, as well as a bunch of new ones like the essential Raven, Neo-Batman (I'm taking this role, so sorry if you were hoping to snag that), Starfire, Cyborg and maybe a few others if they have a good dynamic to fit the team. Even a potential traitor like Terra could be fun to include.

Every character in the game will, at this point, be at least 17 so that relationships don't have to be limited, and you can stick to the show's canon or open up new ones. Even the younger ones like Beast Boy, perhaps having gone through a time warp and stayed in an alternate dimension where time flows differently to artificially age them up or something.

I'll rattle off a list of potential characters (canon and specific to this game) but feel free to make suggestions if you don't see anyone you'd like to play as, and I'll try to update as often as possible who's taken and who is still available.

Rock on. I'm not sure what's not drawing more attention, the fact that it's YOUNG Justice, which we've established will fall within the site's permitted range for the purposes of the game (and which is already the case in the second season for most of the characters anyway) or that there's a bunch of other superhero games being advertised and they're more alluring.

Gonna give this one last shot before I hang it up. Any and all takers welcome, and I'm open to some modifications to the plot setup if that helps.

This sounds interesting! Though to be more clear, there's no OCs in the game?

For example, I've actually made my own AU version of Raven (OC), which still looks like her and has her powers, but I've gone through and given her a completely different backstory. Would that not be allowed?

Miss Martian is a very interesting character before everyone knows she's a white martian, but this takes place long after it's public knowledge, I think.

The only Starfire I know is the one from the Teen Titans cartoon (guilty pleasure, shut up), but playing an idealistic bright eyed bombshell princess from outer space is always fun, assuming that's close enough to her personality? Like I said I only know the cartoon version.

Not 100% sure I have the space to commit to either but just thought I'd throw out potential interest.

Yeah, I would just imagine Starfire being a visitor, basically taking a break from being on her own homeworld, and being something like a fish out of water and naive about Earth culture but amusingly and harmlessly so. But there can be other interpretations, just so long as her basic alien origin and power set are relatively similar to the original.

This sounds interesting! Though to be more clear, there's no OCs in the game?

For example, I've actually made my own AU version of Raven (OC), which still looks like her and has her powers, but I've gone through and given her a completely different backstory. Would that not be allowed?

Well we need Raven to be the daughter of Trigon, to be at least mildly aware of his impending arrival and her role in being the key to him being able to cross over into their world, and to eventually decide to help her new friends against him in order for the main arc of the story to work. I'm open to other interpretations beyond that but those are key factors that have to be kept intact.

And I'm always extremely sketchy about OCs in games like this. I find there's plenty of room for that kind of thing in games where the entire world is an original setting and that it works better that way anyway. Besides, there's so many possibilities (like existing DC characters that haven't yet appeared on the show) that there should be plenty of possibility and room for some creativity even within the existing framework.

If Tokyorose doesn't want to use the canon stuff for Raven, I'd totally throw in my hat for being Raven. >.>

The Justice League vs Teen Titans redesign looks like it fits the visual style of Young Justice pretty well, at least.

This looks interesting unfortunately I haven't actually seen this show, though others I have including Teen Titans, but not TT Go, yeah that would've been a guilty pleasure lol  ;D

So far from the mentioned characters I would like to go as either Zatanna (as I do love magic but could a little help here) or as Terra still learning proper use of her powers.

No I'm fine with the canon backstory, I had made that version of Raven in a Young Justice RP some time back when it had all OCs, so it allowed me to be a bit creative because Raven hadn't appeared in the show.

I'd be cool with playing Raven then and using the Canon backstory, I have no problems with it. :)

It's funny that you mention that, because  had used that design of Raven for when I made my version. lol

The show is absolutely amazing, haven't seen as good an ensemble superhero animated program since the DC Animated Universe that started with Batman: The Animated Series and concluded with Justice League Unlimited. If you have Netflix, both seasons are on it to watch.

If anyone has any good suggestions for a way in which Terra might be a mole, or tempted into becoming one after the fact, I'm all ears since that would be a great way to make another interesting plot point.

Okay, I'm going to start putting up character sheet templates for you guys to submit (do them here, not in PM, although if you have questions you can PM them to me) so it's first-come, first-served as far as choices. Make sure to state somewhere if you have a secondary character you would want to play if we get to the point where we can start doubling up.

What with Young Justice coming back I'll throw a tentative hat in the ring here.

I'd probably up for playing Nightwing. A Nightwing who actually does field work and not just leading from base too :P

I wouldn't have him any other way!  ;D  Besides, with the League away from home, he'll have to get out from behind a desk.

I should add for clarification, only the actual superpowered Justice League members will be off-planet. Guys like Batman and Green Arrow are staying on Earth. So it's just Superman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, the Hawks, Captain Atom, etc. who are out fighting Darkseid and Vandal Savage. Those who can't really contribute a fight with similarly powered individuals on a one-on-one basis elected to stay behind so as not to be a liability if they get injured far from home where they can't receive medical treatment.

I'm a bit iffy on the backstory as I'm not sure how the Titans/Young Justice tie in to each other exactly so I'm totally open to rewriting any of that.

Well the Titans never existed, so she can develop any relations she wants from scratch or simply make up a past history and, given her absence in the show, simply now return on a more long-term basis (or if they met her on Tamaran rather than her coming to Earth, she'll be there visiting for however long she feels like, having simply met them during an off-screen episode or something.) But there won't be any history with, say, Raven who will only just now be appearing on Earth, so the actual team of the Titans wouldn't have been complete anyway. Maybe if the team didn't have a name for itself, i.e. Young Justice, she can have suggested the nickname Teen Titans, but it won't be anything official.

Here's my profile, so anyone else who has decided to commit, go ahead and submit whenever you're ready.




Name/Identity: Terry McGinnis/Batman (of the future, AKA Neo-Batman)
Place of Origin: Earth, Neo-Gotham City
Race: Human - Partial clone of Bruce Wayne
Powers/Weapons/Equipment:
-Batsuit that enhances physical strength multiple times over and protects from above-normal amounts of damage, can fly with retractable wings (that can also act as shields) and jet boots, as well as a camouflage invisibility feature
-Arsenal of Batarangs that can be compacted and have a variety of uses, both combustive and cryonic or simply as sharpened projectiles
-Martial arts training from the disciple of the same ninja master that taught Bruce Wayne, also gifted in street fighting and improvisation
Weaknesses: Without the suit he's got only his training and few resources to help him survive. He's also a fish out of water in a primitive time and can't fix any major damage to his suit without assistance, though the technology might still be too advanced for anyone to help
Backstory (Up to the end of season 2): From an uncertain future, McGinnis is at the point where Batman Beyond season 3 ended (and after Return of the Joker's events) but before the JLU episode Epilogue's events, so he's been Batman for quite some time but doesn't know about his relation to Bruce Wayne. Having encountered temporal oddities before such as when Static once came to his timeline, he is not unfamiliar with the idea but has no idea how he ended up in this past, especially since it doesn't seem to mirror anything his mentor, the original Batman, has told him about.
Currently: Being in unfamiliar territory, he is likely to be initially hostile to anyone trying to confront him even if they do so in a peaceful way, given his untrusting nature
Role in Team: Prophet
Personality: Brash and rebellious but with a strong sense of justice and fairness
Special Relationships: Potentially anyone in the Bat family, given his desire to emulate them
Gender Identity and Preference: Straight male
Definitely 'Yes' Sexual Elements You Would Like to Include: Nothing special, if it happens, it happens
Definitely 'No' Sexual Elements You Refuse to Play: Bathroom, blood, pain

So I used a mix of wiki magic and memory to figure most of this out. All of that said if something seems off let me know. On another note, however, if anyone wants a special connection to Grayson be it mentor, former lover, or any other plot point just hit me up. Oh, and if anyone plays one of the relationships I mention down below I'm more than happy to discuss how we can fit it to better suit whatever plans there were for them though I think, at the moment, that's only really geared towards Aida and her playing Artemis.

Name/Identity: Richard "Dick" Grayson/Nightwing
Place of Origin: Earth, Gotham City
Race: Human

Powers/Weapons/Equipment: Nightwing doesn't have any powers but he does have extensive training in practically every martial art, more academics than most scholars, and detective skills gleaned from Batman. He also has access to a staggering assortment of gadgets thanks to his mentor though he often relies on his escrima sticks. That doesn't even get into his hacking talents. Honestly, if someone could learn it, even the basics, Dick probably has learned it. His supposed superpower, however, is the ability to amicably break up with any woman he has ever been with, much to his friend Wally's chagrin.

Weaknesses: Nightwing has a tendency to be secretive in a manner similar to his mentor. Secret missions that need doing are often coordinated without the whole team's knowledge or consent. In addition to that Nightwing is, in the end, just a man. He can't take more than a hit or two from the heavy hitters without going down.

Backstory (Up to the end of season 2): Nightwing went from being under Aqualad to leading the teams as their effective handler and coordinator. He saw very little time in the field as he was often too busy trying to find the patterns of The Light or mold the rest of the teams into the best heroes they could possibly be. Every mission he tried to keep on top of and it took a bit of a toll on him by the end. The Reach got defeated but seemingly at the cost of Wally West's life. Giving command back to Aqualad after his return from a deep cover mission he left the team with a smile. He'd come back. He just needed time.

Currently: After leaving the team for a time Nightwing needed to hone himself and get back into field work shape. He kept in touch with everyone, though he paid a bit more attention to Artemis since she was the other person most devastated by Kid Flash's loss. He needed to be out there doing the good himself more than he had when he was coordinating. So he moved into Bludhaven and took up the mantle of its guardian. For a few months he protected the streets from the most basic thugs up to the few supervillains that came his way. More than a few partner missions with Batman as well letting him really get back onto the razor's edge of his skill. But, in the end, he returned to the team about a month ago. Taking up a leadership position, of a squad this time rather than the whole thing, he was more than happy to be on the frontlines again.

Role in Team: Leader, Stealth Scout, Tactical Oversight

Personality: Grayson was always a bit of a joker though he had had to tone it down quite a bit as the overall leader. The time spent under his own power in Bludhaven brought it back. Nightwing wasn't the serious leader he once was but instead was the charismatic man he always truly had been using wit and levity when needed but with just the right amount of serious. He's never been one to shy away from talking to members of the team whenever they need help and he's consistently one of the kindest members of the team willing to do anything and everything to help out his friends.

Special Relationships:
-Batman: The man who Dick considers his father and his mentor. While Nightwing no longer has the desire to become the Bat that he once did he still holds him in high esteem. Should anything go terribly wrong Bruce is the first person he would call to help solve the problem. There is no one on the planet that he trusts more to save peoples lives than Batman. And in return Batman has come to see Grayson as an equal rather than a student.
-Zatanna: They flirted, dated, broke up, and still flirt now and again. Dick still has a bit of a thing for her even if he knows it probably won't work out. Doesn't mean they can't have some fun anyways right?
-Artemis: As members of the original team they were close but they grew even closer as they both mourned the apparent death of Wally West. They never dated and never really viewed each other that way but Dick is just a phone call away whenever she needs him.
-Wally West: Dick's best friend and formerly dead friend. When Wally came back he smacked him for vanishing like that then it was like nothing had ever happened.
-Batgirl: The spark is there and they love teasing each other but they still haven't progressed beyond it yet. Maybe things will go somewhere maybe not. Dick isn't going to force it and he's happy where things are for the moment.
-Tim Drake/Robin: Being Robin before this Robin was Robin Dick took the young man under his wing and was more than impressed with what he could do. He tried making him into a leader and he was suited to the task on top of his natural talents elsewhere. He was shaping up to be a better detective than Dick had been and for that he would continue to be a mentor and friend to the young Robin.

Gender Identity and Preference: Nightwing is man who seems to be capable of charm just about any woman he meets. (Male who has an eye for ladies alone.)

Definitely 'Yes' Sexual Elements You Would Like to Include: Grayson is extremely receptive to his partner's wants (part of the secret to how he has so many former lovers still on good terms with him is this) so he does whatever he can to please them. Romantic and tender or rough and hard. He's done most of it and he's just as comfortable. Too be honest though Grayson does actually like being a bit rough. Being calm, cool, and collected all the time makes him want to cut loose a little when he can.

Definitely 'No' Sexual Elements You Refuse to Play: Grayson won't ever hurt someone beyond what they actually desire. (As well as my own general no-gos of no Bathroom Play, light blood from scratches at most, no major pain, and not putting anything in my guy's backside.)

Looks good. All right, three profiles in, 3 more and we should be able to get started on the game if one of them is Raven.

Actually, the Watchtower is now a proximity bomb so that anything that approaches Earth with malevolent intent is going to have a huge explosion to rock it before it gets closer, so nobody is actually stationed there, it's all earthbound during this galactic crisis. No sense having people working inside of a land mine, right? That way everyone can be close enough to interact with each other without insurmountable distances between them. Interaction is key, so nobody should be off-world if they're going to be a significant part of the game.

Since Nightwing and Starfire were close, and that's a bit of an understatement, in the TT cartoon. I wouldn't be opposed to having it be a situation where Nightwing has been hosting her at his house in Bludhaven if you'd like.

Does anyone in particular want to be the one to draw Arsenal back into the fold?

Perhaps Terry has reason to believe that Arsenal – or his absence – played a role in the looming crisis? Or he's dragged in by one of the new members? I'm open to suggestions, and if anyone wants to play out his recruitment scene.

I don't think Starfire is in the loop enough to do this, sorry. :(

It's possible he was one of the heroes she fought/befriended when she landed, depending on how long ago you wanted that to have taken place, but if you'd rather not, no worries.

LOL, sorry RedPhoenix, didn't mean to make it sound like I was picking on you, just wanted to keep the group closer together. Space is kind of like the forbidden zone for the moment, so everyone should be limited to locations on earth. Any enemies they face will come to them, the heroes don't need to go looking for 'em.

And I would think that given the news of the crisis, Green Arrow could very plausibly reach out to Arsenal to ask him to come back into the fold and help the team deal with things now that the League is so shorthanded, and since they all work better as a team, they want everyone working together rather than having solo careers. Even though they're pretty negative toward each other at the time, they do have a history and there's a pretty good reason to join forces.

Here's what I'm thinking can set off the start of the game: A Motherbox will be found on Earth by some archeologists, and upon its activation, a massive destabilization occurs (because by now it's so old and banged up) and triggers several simultaneous events. Raven's dimensional travel that brings her to Earth for one, Terry McGinnis' time travel for another, and a portal to Apokolips through which a small group of the Furies comes through and intends to conquer Earth in the name of their master. So even though Darkseid and Vandal Savage have joined forces, and Savage tried to use the threat of War World as a moratorium on plans to conquer Earth that might come from other worlds, Darkseid is obviously going behind his back. The team will find out that the warriors from Apokolips are on a whole different level. They'll have to be significantly stronger to be fewer in number and yet pose a genuine threat.

Unfortunately due to some things coming up, I can't take Raven. Whoever wanted her feel free to claim her.

I will allow for some doubling up if it means getting a Raven so we can start the game.
