Aquaman stepped down as King of Atlantis some time after the Seven Kingdoms joined under one rule. Arthur Curry was never one for politics, but knew his wife Mera was up for the role. While Mera ruled over the Seven Kingdoms as their Queen, Aquaman was tasked with defending the oceans and keeping the peace between the Seven Kingdoms and the surface world. The founding Justice Leaguer knew he couldn't do it alone, and began scouting the seas for 'others like him.' He was looking for more gifted undersea metahumans and eventually he found them. It would be just in time as Aquaman would discover an assassination plot to kill the Queen during her tour of the Seven Kingdoms, but what do Deadshot and Black Manta have to do with it all? And who's pulling their strings? It's up to Aquaman and the new JUSTICE LEAGUE ATLANTIS to figure it out before it's too late...

______


Justice League Atlantis is exactly what it sounds like. Players will create undersea metahumans, new underseas kingdoms, and species of creatures in an RP that will have them all joining Aquaman himself to save the cities of the seas. While they have created several in one universal reboot or the next, for this RP we'll only have three cannon kingdoms to give you guys a little more freedom to create the last four. Sub Diego will also be cannon in this and be a frequent hotspot for drifters from the kingdoms to lay low in.

The three kingdoms that will be cannon include:

🌊 Poseidonis: The main city of Atlantis, it is a large domed city. Aquaman is seen here most often. It is the location of the Royal
Throne.

🌊 Shayeris (formerly Crastnus): The Capital of the Hidden Valley. Home to extremely secluded mystics and pacifists. The birthplace of
Garth, the first Aqualad.

🌊 Xebel: A penal colony locked beneath the Bermuda Triangle, Mera is from here. Mera's father rules in Xebel. Mera's sister, Siren,
was sent from Xebel to kill Aquaman along with some Xebel soldiers. It's unclear how she and the soldiers managed to get out of
their imprisonment.

... and like I said before, you guys can go nuts with the last four. There have been cities of mermen, another city of mystics, etc. However, here's a blurb for Sub Diego as well...

🌊 Sub Diego: Sub Diego was a portion of San Diego that sunk into the sea, and became part of
the kingdom of Atlantis for several years. Some of the people who sunk with the part of the city gained
the ability to breath water. It should be noted Sub Diego is no longer recognized as an undersea kingdom like the
others, as it is part of the United States.

So there's four places already you could have a character from or you can choose to try and create a new kingdom for us to incorporate. Remember there's all kinds of mystic artifacts in the oceans one could use, similar to the artifacts used by Aquaman and the Others. You could also be an original deep sea explorer with a fancy tech suit or something like one of the Sea Devils. I'm mostly looking for folks already living underwater though, so only one or two tech heroes will be accepted. Any heroes who can adapt to underwater environments such as Beast Boy, Martian Manhunter, etc. could also be used!

______


To give you an idea of how we'll handicap Aquaman in the RP to make the rest of us more relevant, he CAN'T control sea life anymore. He can communicate with it, but its as if the oceans' inhabitants are no longer compelled to do as Aquaman asks. And that would be due to the woman who wants the Queen's crown, the self proclaimed Creature Queen. Along with Deadshot and Black Manta, CQ also has King Shark, the Eel, and an army of mystically altered sea creatures as well as the Trench at her disposal. But who is this woman, and why does she hate Aquaman so much?

Does anybody wanna defend the oceans alongside Aquaman? Looking for six to seven players to get this one off the ground. If there's enough interest I'll post a Character Sheet model!

You won't believe this @Omega Man, but I was about to PM you, asking you to revive this a few days ago. With the movie receiving positive feedback and all....

And I am interested of course.

Name: Kassandra Keigwan

Codename: Mirage

Age: 20

Home: [one of the Seven Kingdoms, Sub Diego, or surface world if you're gonna be that one guy/girl] (Wherever the merpeople come from? I dunnno)

Powers/Abilities: *Illusions - Kassy's most versatile ability is that she can form illusions of all 5 senses. Sight and sound are the easiest for her; tactile illusions a bit more difficult. Smell and taste are possible for Kassy, but she's not very good at them; mostly because those are quite subjective. Her favorite tricks are to make herself invisible and soundless, leaving her able to easily surprise unaware enemies.

*Resistance - Kassy has a natural resistance, and in some cases, immunity to other mental attacks. Another illusionist will be ineffective against her, and another mind controller would have to be extremely powerful (and only focused on her) to defeat her.

*Human Shape - While Kassy does usually go around with a tail, she can walk on land for hours at a time. How long she can manage depends on how hydrated she is at the time, but she will have to go into water within 24 hours. Usually she has to spend her nights in a bath or pool.

*Staff combat – Kassy’s magic staff is very durable, and she’s learned to use it as a physical weapon. The octopus figure topping it is weighted, and packs a punch.

*Knife combat – While she would much prefer to stay out of the action, if she has to, Kassy can defend herself with a small hooked fishing knife.

Weaknesses: Her illusions do not work on robots or electronic devices, and most of the time, animals won't be fooled by the sight/smell illusions. The more people she is trying to fool, the weaker the illusions are.

Equipment: *Elemental Staff – The staff Kassy carries is made of metal with a magical core, and it’s covered in various runes. She has elemental spells ‘programmed’ in, ones that she can use at will to control fire, water, air and earth. There is a figure of an octopus that tops the staff, whose eyes light up to correspond with the running spell. (Kassy has named this figurine Damiek.)

Experience: [1-4 years] 1 year

Reason For Joining: [why did you choose to help the former King?] Because someone had to. Also, she was tired of working by herself in her tiny hometown , to limited success.

Appearance: Kassy is about 5’8'' and rather pudgy, with dark skin and thick, curly white hair. Her eyes are bright orange, with wide pupils. She has a long orange tailfin.

BRIEF Bio: Kassandra was born with a rare type of magic, one that had been systematically expunged from her race's DNA. Her grandfather could read minds. Her mother could speak to the dead. Kassy herself can cast illusions of all sorts, tricking minds into seeing or hearing things. She is feared in the town she comes from, and had to operate in secret while trying to defend the town. This isolation took it's toll on her, so when the call came, she leapt at the chance to do something truly useful.

I'm interested though I understand if earlier people have first dibs. Can at least have fun creating a character and getting feedback.

Still PLENTY of room.

@Mistress Dizzy The mermen and women are from Tritonis. Accepted!

@Cyrania Give me some sort of idea what the transformation looks like. I dig the gypsy vibe a well...

@Omega Man

When transforming from a seal to a human, the human seems to burst out of the seal and leave the skin behind. When transforming back, the human slips and steps into the skin until it envelops the human form and becomes a seal again. So, in essence, its similar to slipping on and off a full body suit except the suit merges with the person to become a full living creature.

@Omega Man

In the appearance section, I describe her seal form along with her human form. Its a silvery grey seal with molted black and tan spots with large dark eyes and whiskers. Basically, she looks like a typical grey seal though larger than the non-selkie ones.

The kind of form that most would mistake for an ordinary seal if one should happen to swim by.

@Omega Man Do Atlanteans in this game communicate with one another underwater by telepathy or by talking?

@Red X Depends what species of Atlantian they are. Languages could even be magically dubbed in case some species don't speak English...

There is also the Curse of Kordax- meaning that Atlanteans with Blonde hair could have the telepathic abilities.

I guess Ari would be extremely unusual by Atlantean standards then, being a black haired telepath in human form. If it's a hard and fast rule for the humanoid denizens of Atlantis, I could go with my original idea of her having golden hair then incorporate gold somewhere in the seal. If not, it'd be one more way she could surprise people who only look at her surface appearance.
