RPers: @Stormursa, @AstralDarkrai37, @Espeon~, @Dave Strider "And there came a day unlike any other, when Earth's mightiest heroes found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, they became The Avengers!" So I tried doing this once, and it didn't really work... But I'm trying it again now, and hopefully it'll work this time! Basically, the RP has a re-imagining of all the Marvel heroes and characters. Villains and side-characters may be the same, but main characters and story will be different. We're trying to make this unique - remember that. Eventually, the heroes will be forming into one team - the Avengers. So we're going to need at least the main five (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and the Wasp). Don't worry - I'm taking one! Now, I'm going to list some rules. 1) There's a maximum of two controllable Avengers/heroes (for now, this may change after the first story arc concludes). This doesn't include side-characters or villains, of course. 2) Obviously, there's not multiple Thors running around at the same time. If a hero's already taken, they're off-limits. Unless you can justify it (i.e. Clint Barton and Kate Bishop both being Hawkeye). 3) Please don't make any characters that aren't main-series Avengers until we have the main roster of 12 filled out. It's fine if you want to be Wolverine or Star-Lord, but unless they're an Avenger it might be hard to incorporate them into the stories. 4) Follow regular Charms rules, of course. 5) NO ONE LINERS. I'm giving you two characters, people. AND NPCs! Use them! No excuses for one-liners. 6) Make sure your character has limits that are within reason. Sure, Thor's a god. And he is pretty damn powerful. Just give him some exploitable flaws. We're not having any Supermen here, folks! 7) To prove you read the rules, include "shawarma" in your Extra section. 8 ) I have a main concept of the story in mind, so I'm going to build on that. Follow along, but if you could allow me to control how the story flows. 9) Try not to deviate TOO much from the source material. But also make sure your character has a different twist or two from the official versions. And for the love of god, know the character you're playing! 10) Light cursing and violence is fine. Let's make this RP PG13 at most, just like the films and comics. 11) I already have backstories and such planned out for the characters, so when you make a selection I can tell you their history. 12) If you need to know anything, just ask! Tell me if there are any changes or additions I should make to the rules. Anyways, I should probably mention who the "main roster of 12" I mentioned are. They are; Spoiler: The Avengers (first 12) Iron Man (Tony Stark): @Dave Strider Hulk (Bruce Banner): Thor Odinson: @Espeon~ Ant-Man (Hank Pym): @Eeveechu151 The Wasp (Janet Van Dyne): Captain America (Steve Rogers): @Stormursa Hawkeye (Clint Barton): Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff): @AstralDarkrai37 Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff): Black Panther (T'Challa, Son of T'Chaka): Black Widow (Natascha Romanoff): Vision: There are also NPC characters you can take, if you want. They don't count as Avengers (at least not yet) but will be appearing in the series for at least a cameo, so if you want to take them do so. This does not count towards the character limit. Spoiler: NPCs Nick Fury: @Eeveechu151 Maria Hill: Phil Coulson: Jasper Sitwell: @Eeveechu151 Dum Dum Dugan: War Machine (James Rhodes): @AstralDarkrai37 Pepper Potts: Happy Hogan: Guardsman (Kevin O'Brian): @Eeveechu151 Samuel Wilson: Agent 13: General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross: Betty Ross: Rick Jones: All-Father Odin Borson: Lady Sif: @Espeon~ Hogun: @Eeveechu151 Fandral: @Eeveechu151 Volstagg: @Eeveechu151 Jane Foster: @Espeon~ Bill Foster: Wolverine (Logan): @Dave Strider Professor X (Charles Xavier): Cyclops (Scott Summers): Beast (Henry McCoy): You're also going to have to fill out a character sheet for each of the respective heroes, if that's not too much hassle! Put my own down as an example. This is not needed for NPCs! Spoiler: Character Sheet Hero: Name: Gender: Appearance: Backstory: Allies: Rogue's Gallery (List of villains previously fought): Hometown: Extra: Spoiler: Ant-Man (Hank Pym) Hero: Ant-Man Name: Henry "Hank" Pym Gender: Male Appearance: Looks the same as he does in the movie. Backstory: Hank Pym was a scientist who miraculously discovered a serum that can change the size of atoms, and was traumatized by the accident that followed - he shrunk to the size of an ant, and ran for his life from ants. He decided not to sell the size-changing formula, as he had intended to, but instead chose to keep it for himself and become a super-hero. But first, he had to make a helmet that allowed him to communicate with ants and test out his shrinking powers. On his first test outing, however, he was captured by the super villain from the Microverse named Psycho-Man. Hank discovered here he retains the proportionate strength, speed and endurance of a full-sized human, which he used to tear through Psycho-Man's defenses with the help of his three new Ant-Friends Dave, Matthew and Adam. After taking down Psycho-Man, he started making a name for himself. This got the attention of the Mandarin, who sent Madame X to steal Ant-Man's gear. Hank took her down, with the help of his new partner Janet Van Dyne, AKA the Wasp, who had joined him to get revenge for X murdering her father. Janet joined Hank from that day on, and the two fought many different factions of crime across San Francisco. Their most notable enemies are Egghead, a criminal scientist, and Whirlwind, a mutant speedster who Ant-Man can just barely keep up with. Allies: The Wasp (Janet Van Dyne), Elias Weems, Bill Foster, Black Knight (Dane Whitman), Dave (an ant), Matthew (another ant), Adam (a FLYING ant). Rogue's Gallery: Egghead (Elihas Starr), Whirlwind (David Cannon), Psycho-Man, Black Knight (Nathan Garrett), Porcupine (Alexander Gentry), The Magician (Lee Guardineer), The Voice (Jason Cragg), The Protector (Gerald Marsh), Madame X (Nina Tsiolkovsky) Hometown: San Francisco So that's pretty much it. Once we get the first five characters we need (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Wasp) taken we'll be able to start.
