Thinking of trying my hand at Katana, actually. She was always recommended as someone I could pull off, maybe it's about time.

I don't want to be that guy, but I have pretty significant plans for Katana down the line.

I should have put it in my sheet, but I didn't want to tip my hand to the plans I have down the line. (Some of which is already written up...)

Well ain't this a mexican standoff. I guess we'll have to convene in the GM room and decide what we're going to do. Be back in a few, folks.

Alright, after much deliberation, we've come to a decision. We believe the best course of action is for @Dblade26 to submit a sheet for Katana and we'll compare that to @Morden Man 's own use of the character, as we would if two players were to submit sheets for the same character within the 24 hour wait period. Whichever one we believe has a better story to tell and is better for the health of the game overall will be given the character. We realize it's not a very comfortable situation and not everyone's going to win at the end of this, but we feel it's our best option.

And with that the first chapter of Zatanna's story has come to an end! Probably not what y'all GMs envisioned as Chapters but otherwise all my posts would probably be in one big chapter for the entire season which doesn't feel right. Next time watch as Hex tries to be Donald Westlake if he took a lot of acid and decided that Wizards were the shit. Also wait a second, I managed to finish an arc in a timely matter..... this may or may not be a sign of the apocalypse.

Anyway to answer the earlier question of
Well we're almost a week into the IC and already on our third page so out of curiosity, what are the driving factors and influences in your story?


Honestly for Zatanna, it's pretty predictable for me in regards to inspiration: Alan Moore probably first and foremost particullary his run in Swamp Thing, Neil Gaiman's work on the Books of Magic, the original 1960s run of Zatanna's run which I found online just for this story, some Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, et cetra y'know the spoopy guys. Other media wise, I've been playing a lot of Cultist Simulator and Sunless Sea recently I don't know if that counts? Also drawing from other iterations of Zatanna we have seen in the animated world like Justice League, the old Batman cartoon, Young Justice et cetera, and I've also been watching the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I guess that counts? Basically its a real hodgepodge of stuff is what I'm saying. lol And like honestly I'm just having fun exploring weird magic stuff because that is kind of my bread and butter when it comes to this kind of writing so it comes the most easy to me. I have a general plot outline of where things should end up but like beside that I'm kinda just writing and seeing what happens!

Also I forgot to mention earlier but if any of the more spookier or non-spookier heroes want to do a crossover or something? I'd be glad to! You'd just wanna hit me up somehow either here or in PMs or Discord if you have my discord et cetra.

Well we're almost a week into the IC and already on our third page so out of curiosity, what are the driving factors and influences in your story?

For Wonder Woman, I want to focus on writing someone that has basically lived a century and seen the beauty and ugly of humanity. Now with her lover and friends gone, she had more time to work on WVF and additional media properties; however, she doesn't really have a whole network of friends nowadays. Besides Captain America and Captain Marvel, everyone that she met and befriended has died and either buried or cremated. Her new friends are just her co-workers and they only have been working with her since 2001 when she returned to the public eye. My inspirations were The Man from Earth, The Age of Adaline, and a hint of Forever regarding her immortality. Of course, I am planning on showing both the good and bad of being an immoral superhero.

Meanwhile, on the political side, I have plan on making the committee on Wonder Woman her overall arc of the season. I want to answer the question of how the governments of the world will respond to a resurfacing of metahumans/mutants that they haven't dealt with before. Of course, there were superheroes but they knew that they had it under control. Now, they are scared and afraid. So, who should be blamed for this? The World's First Superhero: Wonder Woman. I want to write out that the world might be a better place if Wonder Woman never existed. And have the committee ask the tough questions. One of the most important inspirations was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and their attempt on matter. And my other influences were Marvel's Civil War, The Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen, and (my first comic that I am going to read) Kingdome Come.

I should also mention this to y'all. If you want to do a crossover, then private message me on here or discord. I am already planning to do one with Iron Man but it doesn't mean we can't plan it. Also, sorry for my disappearance! My sister came home for the weekend before her spring break trip.

So is anyone using Lady Shiva?

Edit: apparently so, back to the drawing board.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Moving forward, if a character was not in your sheet when accepted, is not represented in the IC by one of your posts and doesn't fall under your character's jurisdiction, it needs to be publicly stated that you are intending to use them. If a player applies with a completed sheet before one of these criteria are met, then you lose claim to that character.

Thank you for your time.

Only way to not get into a bind by using a character from another character's supporting cast is to only use the really obscure ones no one would ever use.

Space Canine Patrol Agents when?

If anyone wants to use Egghead, then by all means go for it. In fact, it would be... eggcellent

I'll trade you Paste Pot Pete for Condiment King, but only if you throw in Egghead too, to sweeten the deal.

EDIT: Fuck it, throw in Crazy Quilt, too. I'll give you Plantman.

No trade necessary. I just want a Sinister Six with that team.

I jumped on this a day or so ago. I have a running list of NPCs and villains I intend to use (or at least reference) within this first "season" within the character notes section, either in modern day or in flashbacks. Three of these "villains" are modified, obscure heroes within the Marvel canon that shouldn't conflict much with anything anyone could plan up.
