I think what made the original Exiles so interesting was that the team wasn't comprised solely of marque characters.

Funnily enough, not only were a lot of the more obscure ones (Mimic or Blink, say) actually the more interesting, but it gave the whole run this sense of genuine unpredictability. Anyone could get it. Kind of like the Suicide Squad. So as enthralling as I find "Diana Prince with Mjolnir" concepts, I have to say I love the really out of left field ones. Hopefully, I can add something along those lines before the deadline closes.


I feel the same. Not only is Exiles one of my favorite comics period, but Blink, Mimic, and Morph from that run are some of my favorite characters. I attempted a run in one of the fandom games a couple of years ago where Mimic was the leader of the X-Men, inspired by the Exiles version.

While I do love and enjoy seeing all these big-name interpretations being applied for, I am excited to see some of the more lesser-known and obscure characters get a chance in the limelight here.

Gave these sheets an update, and hopefully that addresses the concerns raised. At the very least, it was a fun challenge nonetheless.

I like the changes, and they definitely address the concerns I had. This version of Hulk I can easily balance in a group setting and the change to Cap's world is appreciated. Thank you!

In light of some of the commentary regarding concepts and being wild with them, I've changed my secondary proposal.

I still have a copy of the Wildfire one though, if something more mainstream is the preference there.

Well. That's definitely wild and interesting. I'll have a think about that.

Very interesting. I like the general concept and appreciate that you made sure to note his abilities were of a lower-tier for this. Admittedly, I'm not sure how to balance having Nabu around, even mitigated by Nelson's stubbornness. It would be a challenge, for sure, especially if/when his powers begin to return. Right now I'm concerned the helmet could become an issue in the future and may pose a problem with the greater plot down the road. But these are just my preliminary thoughts having only just read the sheet. I'll give it time to consider and mull things over and will treat it the same as any other app.

Just so I know, though, do you intend to submit a secondary?

It's unlikely I'll submit a secondary application. I intentionally left my application somewhat vague because I don't think those finer details really matter too much, at least in so far as the character-driven story I want to tell. The above is just a general summation of a direction of travel. Kent can as easily not have the Helmet at all and rely on residual power from a lifetime of wearing it. Nabu can be existent or not (hence the "embers of Nabu's will" line) as far as I'm concerned.

I tend to avoid spelling that kind of thing out in character sheets because it removes some of the fun both in the writing and reading of things to come.

Perfectly fair and understandable. Honestly, the residual magic route was what I was thinking when considering how the concept could fit. Knowing you're fluid on the details so long as you get to tell your character-driven story helps in my considerations. Thank you.

So, I took a day to consider this one, and while there's still a few days remaining, I do want to ensure everyone has ample time to readjust and reapply with different concepts should one not be suitable. Similar to my concerns about the Helmet of Fate, I feel like the Omnitrix as a tool has the potential to very easily overshadow certain aspects of the story. While I like the blending of Ben 10 and Dial H for a Hero, I think having the watch, even limited to just ten aliens, makes the character too versatile. One thing I want to avoid is for any one character to be able to solve the majority of the situations encountered. The Omnitrix is a suped-up Swiss army knife. It has a solution to just about any problem. And even supposing that we ignore its capabilities to copy new alien DNA (Kryptonian in the Omnitrix, anyone? lol), I personally feel it still offers just too much utility.

If you want to try and revamp the idea so it's not so much a master-of-all situation, DM me on Discord and we can try to work something out. You know from our discussions regarding Loki's power levels a couple of weeks back that I am happy to try and strike a balance. If you want to submit a new secondary, I know you have other concepts I'd love to see. Or if you just want to stick with Ryand'r I understand, too.

@Retired Is there any chance that I might be able to get an extension to the August 18th timeslot, because I am without a computer right now and will probably be without it till Monday, but would REALLY like to throw a character sheet in this and would like to not be hampered by the fact that I had to write it out on a phone. Is there any way I could convince you to extend it to maybe Midnight on Tuesday?

As of this moment, I am not committing to an extension on the deadline. If it turns out there are more than one prospective players needing more time, I will consider an extension and make an announcement regarding such on the 18th. Either way, I'm not sure how long of an extension I would give. But, I'll keep everyone updated.

I would suggest writing it out on paper at the moment so it doesn't suffer from the quality of a phone, and then type it out on a computer should an extension be given.

It's how I handled writing Spider-Man and Harley Quinn Batgirl in previous games when my laptop was broken. Wrote it down on paper then typed it up on a PS3... with a controller, not a USB keyboard. I feel like you could manage if you really wanted to.

Sorry if the character differences section seems rather light. I am not good at explaining things. I'd be happy to try if you have any questions or concerns. Also, I'm working on the second character concept: Rocket Raccoon.

So, I'm assuming you're taking more inspiration from the recent Venom movie than classic interpretations. So, due to the war, I'm also assuming Venom has not had any history with Peter Parker? Does this version of the symbiote amplify emotions/hate? Have any bloodlust? Display any malevolence?

We have now passed the halfway point with three days remaining until the end of the deadline, as it currently stands. While everyone still has plenty of time to finish, adjust, and submit concepts, this is just a friendly reminder for those who have incomplete sheets or have shown interest in applying.

@Inkarnate Your Polaris app still needs a completed character background section.

@ComradeMaxx@GreenGrenade The two of you have expressed your interest previously in the OOC, are you still intending to apply?
