First thing's first: players are not, in any capacity, required to be familiar with the Exiles comics. In fact, it might make things more interesting for you if you aren't.
So, for those of you unfamiliar with Exiles, the basic concept is this: thereis something wrong with the multiverse, and six heroes from alternate universes have become unstuck in time. If they remain in their native timelines, something terrible about their past or future will change. Maybe they kill their mother. Maybe they end up in a coma. Maybe they turn to evil. Maybe they even cease to exist. To save themselves and each other, they must travel through the multiverse, fixing universe and setting things right so they can undo these errors and eventually return home, guided by the Timebroker and the mysterious device known as the Tallus.
This game is open for six characters and six alone. All comics universes are welcome (DC, Marvel, Image comics, Top Cow, etc.), as are AUs (Vampire Batman? Sure. A male wielder in a long line of male wielders of the Witchblade? Be my guest. The child of Emma Frost and Scott Summers? Go for it.). Canon characters and OCs are both welcome. Even characters from non-comic media can be played, though they'll require my review. The one stipulation I put down is that the characters submitted must be heroes, anti-heroes, or, at absolute worst, anti-villains like the Secret Six. No out and out villains. That's a different team, and one you may run into eventually.
So, who's game?
