I've been on a bit of a stat based RP kick and wanted to expand in a way I'm not sure anybody else has tried. UNIVERSAL will be just that. It won't be a single role playing game, it will be three connected games within the same universe with villains constantly crossing over as well as heroes to a lesser extent. Those of you already familiar with my stat games know the rundown with stats, however I'll post those guidelines after some interest builds. Basically the idea is to give players the option of having more than one character, but stretching across a universe of RP's so they're not villains limited to one fight in a larger RP or heroes in need of something to do. The breakdown of the games....
Along Came a Spider: A teen is given powers after being bitten by a werewolf but thinks that he's going to be a hero like Arachnid Man in the comics he reads. Coming up with the Wolf Spider identity he uses his feral senses and claws to fight crime and climb the buildings of Millennium City with the aid of his web bombs that restrain the majority of his enemies. However on a full moon his werewolf side takes over and he becomes a lethal threat. Thankfully he has friends. But that's not to say he doesn't have enemies as well.
Players/Role's Needed [taken spots will be marked]-
Wolf Spider - NPC/Enemy
Hero #1 - Skyscraper - Me
Hero #2 - Albion - theacmeemployee
Hero #3 -
Sinister Six - [Doesn't have to be based on Spiderman's enemies but they can be, also the enemies don't have to know of each other]
Villain #1 - Russian Super Soldier - Xivilai (pre approved)
Villain #2 - Tombstone - Aro (pre approved)
Villain #3 -
Villain #4 -
Villain #5 -
Villain #6 -
The next game is based more on the DC Comics Batman franchise, Sons of the Shadow, and is set around an aging hero setting up to retire after being beaten severely by his arch enemy Asylum and a small crew of hired supervillains. Several young heroes step up to fill the void left when the Shadow was last beaten. Some have operated in the Shadow's home town of Steel City before, but most are new to the game. The Shadow tries to stop some of them before realizing they're the help he needs to rid his city of superhuman crime.
Players/Roles Needed [taken spots will be marked]
the Shadow - NPC/Enemy
Son #1 - Shadow Fist - Me
Son #2 - JackKnife - Aro (pre approved)
Son #3 - feral teleporter - Knighthawk (pre approved)
Son #4 -
Son #5 -
Asylum - NPC/Enemy Boss
Hired Villain #1 -
Hired Villain #2 -
Enemy #3 - Detective - Xivilai (pre approved)
The third game is a Villains United type of setting where a group of villains comes together to take down heroes or a super team. This RP could also be a place for villains of the other games to come together as well. Either way I'll need hero and villain spots both. This WILL be the game I create a villain for though so....
Villain #1 - the Metropolitan - Me
Villain #2 - Syphon - Aro (pre approved)
Hero #1 - Mageo - Xivilai (pre approved)
Villains will crossover more and some spots may just get taken as NPC/Enemy characters. Steel City in this universe will be a neighboring city of Millennium City as well as whatever city setting we have for the last game. The more I think of it the more I like the idea of a super villain based game. Anyway, villains will also begin with higher stats than that of the heroes making it all the more important for the heroes to team up. A hero fighting a super villain team in Game #3 may need help and call on a vigilante from Steel City or one of the Wolf Spider's friends in Millennium City and make an unofficial hero team between games. Who knows. You will also be able to count your number of posts per character in all of the games for leveling up. So for instance if my Skyscraper shows up in the 3rd game my posts from both games as Skyscraper will go into his post count for leveling up.
So what say you, anybody up for the challenge? I'm working on stats for both the Shadow as well as Wolf Spider, but I've already got micros made for both Wolf Spider and Skyscraper!
Im interested in being a hero. I may take this back in the morning though as its 3am here and I'm having trouble staying awake. If I do decide to make an app im leaving this appearance for myself.
kinda reminds me of Casey Jones from Ninja Turtles.

Redback with some minor tweaks would be awesome. Not too sure about his shirt though, needs to be a little less Spiderman-ish.
I could still use Mecha Knight if you want. Otherwise, I think I'd actually like the idea of a Sorcery or Mysticism-based hero.
Sorcery or Mysticism would be cool. I was actually thinking of making the Shadow somewhat supernatural if you wanted to do that with one of his "sons."
I'd actually thought of crossing two RP's over, many a time before.
This could be fun.
Not unless you don't mind one of his sons being the vessel/reincarnation of an ancient fox spirit.

Villains will constantly be escaping or getting the upper hand, and even heroes at this point like Wolf Spider will become enemies sooner or later [WS of course turning werewolf].
I'm working on some micros now for Shadow Fist and the Shadow. I'm going the full monte with 3 characters having one per game.
They don't have to be aspiring sidekicks with his MO, they just need to be darker more vigilante like heroes. But if you kill you're bound to walk the line of hero and villain. The Shadow himself will probably train in some form of archaic shadow manipulating magic. My character will have some shadow based powers, but he'll only use them to create shadow fists and shadow wall constructs similar to Bunker in the Teen Titans comics.
