The Amalgam is a mysterious being who apparently had the ability to manipulate reality at some point in his past. These days he wears a device on his right wrist that looks like a wrist watch or perhaps an egg timer. It has a dial and the numbers 1 through 12 arranged like a watch-face except that the number twelve has been mostly scratched off.
Now you may be wondering; what is even up with this wrist thing and why does he call himself The Amalgam? Well, I'll tell you. He is a mix of many things. He has the ears, tail and eyes of a cat. His arms and legs are cybernetic with secret compartments contained within them. He wears a fairly typical sleeveless black martial arts uniform with a red belt. He has a katana sheethed on his back and caries a variety of knives, grenades and ammo clips in a vest under his shirt.
His wrist device is even more interesting. It controls his various powers. He created it for himself to stop his reality manipulation abilities. At different settings it gives him different levels of power. He designed this system for himself so he could choose an appropriate power level for various conflicts. The scratched off number 12 represents his decision to swear off using his reality manipulation powers. He truly desires the purity of clean fair combat. This is why he created his Arena.

The Amalgam's Arena is an artificial dimension consisting of an infinitely variable playing field surrounded by stadium seating. The seating is atop a wall that surrounds the playing field. Inside the wall can be found medical, mechanical and any other type of help facilities a player may need. The field itself can be reshaped into any sort of environment (including outer space) and can even be populated with NPCs. The Seating mostly consists of benches and private boxes. The Amalgam often invites guests into his private box. Private boxes are available for any character or group of characters upon request. Food will be served upon request by the cat butlers and all messes will be cleaned by the ninja janitors. If you are in need of repair please see our grease monkeys and/or robot doctors.
1) This game does not require character sheets. (We don't even have an OOC thread.) You may play as any sort of character you like so long as you keep a spirit of fair play at all times.
2) If either of a battle's contestants requests a match to end, it ends. There is no forcing a character to continue.
3) A character who is not part of a battle may not interfere with it except to commentate.
4) A new battle is started by a character entering a blank arena partition and announcing an open call to fight or challenging a specific character. The characters then agree on special rules and the environment in which to fight.

The World Forged by powers is a sandbox style RP that explores what the world would be like if super powers were real. It takes place in the modern day and uses sci-fi rather than magic, cartoon physics or any of the other typical power styles. Players are encouraged to start their own campaigns and can play as practically anything they like including criminals. It is always open to new players no matter how far along it is.

Westport City is a fictional city where super-villains and super-heroes do battle on a daily basis. Home to magic and science alike, the city is a varied place filled with all sorts of character from all sorts of backgrounds. People in tights, armour, robes and street clothes are equally comfortable. There is always a day to seize and a day to save. The citizens have gotten used to this life. Whenever a super-villain attacks they can be confident that a super-hero will come to stop them. There may be damage but the city is always repaired in the end and life goes on.
There is an arena that allows for multiple battles to take place at once while simultaneously allowing for an audience. The Audience can cheer or jeer at the fight or simply talk to each-other and ask for refreshments. The Arena itself is made out of a shapeshifting substance that allows it to imitate any sort of battleground desired from forests to rivers to city-scapes, including NPCs. The creator of this arena has asked me, as his author, to advertise for him in the hopes that you will take seats in his domain.
