Something catastrophic has happened.
To explain it would take the greatest minds of not just this world, but other worlds and dimensions. The greatest scientists, philosophers, and magicians in existence would have to work together for hundreds of years to put together just what occurred.
But they can't. Because they don't exactly exist anymore.
There has been a Crisis on Infinite Earths. There has been a Final Crisis. The heroes and villains of the vast and impressive DC comics universe have dealt with this sort of thing before.
But never quite like this.
Because the multiverse have been unmade, and then, in a desperate attempt to fix this unmaking, the powers that be, whatever they are, have reassembled the world as best they can. But it isn't exactly as it was.
This is the DC Universe: Reinterpreted.
Ok folks, here's the deal. I want to set up our own unique spin on the DCU. So what I want is for us to take our favorite DC characters and make them our own. Do you want to play Batman as a Jamaican vampire? The Joker as a good-natured solver of crimes? Superman an ambassador from a very-not-exploded Krypton?
That's the point of this. Whatever changes you want to make to the DCU, we will do. You can play the character as straight as possible, and assume the powers that rebuilt the universe got your character completely right, or you can literally change anything you want about your character to make him or her yours.
In game, I'm seeing this as a sort of sandbox. We can create and run villains as well as heroes, you can form your own Justice League, whatever you want to do. We're just gonna have a few rules:
-At least a paragraph, but preferably no more than three per post. I want this casual, folks. Detailed and well written, but not massive.
-No god-moding, an no picking fights. I know the temptation to do something like that with guys like Superman or Darkseid is high, but this rp is about story, not proving your battle prowess. If you're looking to flex those muscles, there are other RPs out there that can meet your needs. Here, all combat between players MUST have an agreed upon outcome before the fight is written. This will avoid hurt feelings and people being bullied.
-Keep it PG-13. This is a thread rp about super heroes. No need to get overly sexual or crude.
-All characters need to be approved by me. Once we get a few people interested, I'll set us up an OOC thread for character sheets and ideas.
Oh, and I'm totally calling Bane. Mine. I'm gonna be Bane.
Ok, lets make this awesome. Reply below with who you want to play, and once we have a few people, like I said, I'll set up an OOC for character sheets and things.
