"Who watches the Watchmen?"
"You really think the Watchmen defended this city in the 70's alone?
Sit down. Let me tell you a story..."

It has been a long while since I have written on this website. After re-reading the Watchmen comic, I am very tempted to make a RP somewhere in this Universe's history.
The following setting will (as the title states) likely take place in 1977, before/during/after the Police Riots in New York City about two years before the Keene Act was legislated by congress which deemed "Masked Vigilantism" in the United States as an illegal practice in the Watchmen Universe. All original characters in said setting will be included as part of the driving force behind some of the narrative and plot but the focus of the theme I would like to be set around the characters/vigilantes you decide to write about. I am not honestly sure where this story will head for the time-being but just figure I'd throw this idea out there to see if anyone would be interested in partaking. I will do more research of the history in this era to twist things into our narrative. For instance, I am hoping to include the Magnificent 13, a real-life vigilante group which predated the Guardian Angels. I'll try to add a few other real-life historical events which we could use to our advantage.
Due to the nature of my work schedule, I am not entirely sure if I'd be able to do this myself so it may be a slower-paced RP. If this idea were to somehow kick-off, I would need some time to come up with a plot for us to roleplay with if I don't end up doing things out of a whim. Have to start somewhere, eh?
What do you guys think? Would this be something you'd be willing to join? Any ideas would be appreciated if you'd be willing to contribute.
