If I'm ever on life support... Unplug me and plug me back in again. See if that helps.

Bio


You JUST scrolled down!


Hello out there! My name's Mason. I enjoy comics, movies, and television as well as a good superhero themed role play! I'm more of a DC freak than a Marvel zombie but I did grow up on mutants and 3rd string heroes. Once in awhile I'll make a few micros in MSPaint for my RP's because I love designing heroes as much as I do writing/reading about them. I'm about to try and get another DC Universe themed game off the ground, if you're interested gimme a shout!



My top RP's on the Guild:

Young Justice 2020
Justice League Unlimited
Titans of Gotham
Champions of Engine City
Marvel Reborn
Legion of Superheroes Return [stat based]


Top Characters:

Ditto - Young Justice series
Bulleteer - Justice League Unlimited
Leviathan - Titans of Gotham
Fastlane - Champions of Engine City
the Thing II - Marvel Reborn
Ultra Boy II - Legion of Superheroes Return


I've been RP'ing since about '03 or '04 right around the end of my high school days. I mostly RP to keep my writing skills up to par, and I generally RP between Casual and Advanced. I've been a member of the guild for quite awhile, pre Guildfall even. Originally I'd come to the site to out a plagiarizer who took parts of my stat system from a Green Lantern Corps RP on another site, as well as bits of my posts as well as other players' work as well. Once I got that troll taken care of, I stuck around awhile.

Favorite DC heroes (I won't go into villains to save space) in no order: Aquaman, Hawkman, Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner), Superboy (the clone), Swamp Thing, Starman, Animal Man, Impulse, Firestorm, and Batman Beyond.

Favorite Marvel heroes list: Human Torch I & II, Black Bolt, the classic Destroyer, Havok, Multiple Man, classic Scarlet Spider, Spiderman 2099, Nova, and Colossus.

This story began over a decade ago...


...with a fifteen year old child getting abducted from a small town in the United States. Like a science fiction novel or comic book the child grew up in space being taken from planet to planet among dozens of other slaves before finally coming into his own. He now had freedom, as well as a star cruiser, and he performs good deeds as often as he causes trouble. His given name was Nathaniel. He now calls himself Nightstar.

Roughly two years ago a human child recently orphaned developed abilities granting him power over machines. In the same car accident that took the lives of his parents, the boy suffered head trauma that unlocked psionic abilities within him. This child was also abducted from a small town somewhere in the United States. The alien slave trader responsible for the abductions, known only as Trader, didn’t count on an associate stabbing him in the back and taking the child. The feral giant Garf and the boy haven’t separated since. The child has come into his own much sooner than Nightstar, and with his power and abilities goes by the moniker… the Machinist.

On the planet of Niagus in the Blue Sun Galaxy, the water breathing humanoids were dying out after a land dwelling dark sorcerer polluted the seas in search of a mystical blue gemstone. Over half the population was dead within a matter of weeks. E’onandru lost his family and swore revenge on the magical marauder. After attacking the sorcerer’s ship, E’on found the artifact after being left for dead in the polluted waters. The gemstone burned itself into his chest granting him power, so it was more a case of the gemstone finding him. The sorcerer, known only as Bloodstone, managed to escape the planet with his life. E’on knew the fight wasn’t over. The broken trident wielding fish man took the name Akheilos, the name his people gave the grim reaper of their religion.

She survived the hellish pits of the Brimstone Galaxy. Once a former slave of the alien Trader, she was now the highest paid mercenary in ten space sectors. She’s been hired to take out world leaders. She’s been known to make the impossible quite possible. There are governments in the Brimstone Galaxy that go silent when her name is even mentioned. She’s an empath with super strength and a sucker for big guns. She has many skills and as many titles, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. The Star Killer. The God Slayer. The Big Gun Goddess. She’s been called a ‘Savage Seductress’. The Amazon of Arkonia… she is Rayvin Andromeda.

The Planetary Alliance was already in good standings with the technopath from Earth after purchasing the designs for his universal translators, what the Machinist called Echos. The rest of the team, put together to combat a crime syndicate, was easy enough to assemble. Garf came along with the Machinist and would be additional muscle as well as protection for the boy. Nightstar was recently on the wrong side of the law in the Blue Sun Galaxy and was released from the penal planet [it’s actually a giant satellite] with the agreement he would help deal with the universe spanning criminal empire. The Solar Cross Syndicate connected the criminal empires of four galaxies including the Blue Sun Galaxy, the Brimstone Galaxy, the Crimson Nebula, as well as the Milky Way Galaxy. The syndicate included the dark sorcerer Bloodstone, so naturally Akheilos jumped at the chance to join the Alliance sponsored group of misfits. After a new star cruiser and over two million in pan-galactic credits were promised as payment, Andromeda completed the team.

Cosmic Odyssey is a project I’ve had in mind that has gone through many changes over time. After my family wanted to do something like D&D with stats and original characters we came up with the space theme and aliens including making a character out of our cat as a secondary for my son. The stats and enemies took me longer than I thought, but now I’ve had time to develop more of a story and system for missions with types of missions somewhat based on the Destiny franchise. While the RP itself is closed I’m not opposed to opening up the universe once it gets going and more of the story is laid out. For anyone reading and/or commenting please keep everything PG-13 as my son turns 11 in August. He’s advanced fast in school and despite his age is currently on the third Hunger Games book.

So now… on to the stat system recap! LOL

The stats are mostly for the battling. While we're still telling a story from our heroes POV, the battles will give each scene more weight when we're put in situations we can barely overcome if at all. Players control their characters once I set up the battles as well as the enemies you fight to a degree. If any fights are too one sided I'll post using the enemies more to level the playing field. Health will reset AFTER battles end and the game moves forward.

Here's a breakdown of how the system works:



Here's an example of a stat card. Superman, although he should be a Level 15 or 20, is a Level 10 enemy with only a few of his powers and abilities shown in his attacks and defenses lists. This should show that even if you have a ton of powers, unless you place the stat points in attack or defense, you can only use the attacks and defenses listed while in battle. Superman is in the second strength class and in the second or third speed class. Had he been a Level 15 or 20 he'd have had the freeze breath and other classic attacks.



I’m going to separate the heroes and villains stat cards as well as make the enemies stats post separated by missions. It’ll make sense once it’s finished, but I’m still in the process of saving files and saving certain cards together in groups. Should have everything sorted out by the weekend. Just wanted to get something up for the fam to look at for now.

GM Notes 7/1/2020 - Everyone will have to do their individual character sheets to further flesh out the characters. I’m working on one for my guy E’on to use as a template.

We kept the flu through the beginning of last week and my laptop battery burned out. Finally got a replacement and some free time on my hands. If anyone's still around I'll start 'liking' IC posts as I read them. If there are questions and things I need to address specifically I'll get to them shortly.

(At my kids ball practice atm...)
My 10 year old and I have had the flu the last week and I haven't had much time online. If anyone's still here I'll try and get caught up this weekend. Apologies if anyone was waiting on responses from me specifically.
@Omega Man

I have to be honest.

I dunno how to write myself into the RP...


Introduce us to your girl in-game, maybe looking into her past lives/masks, sensing a supernatural or cosmic disturbance, or even doing something mundane. I can introduce a Fury type character to begin recruiting a team if nothing else...
I noticed that there weren't any super soldiers accepted yet


@Omega Man Should I come up with an archetype for my character? If so, what do you reccomend? He comes across to me as a Super Solider/Wild Card Hybrid.


Archetypes were more important in the beginning stages of recruiting. It's not super important now unless you just wanna list a Marvel character you're taking inspiration from...
What's a good time to wait between posts? I want others to get a time to shine as well.


At least 2 or 3 posts.

@Omega Man Can I have associates?


Yes. Villains can have minions, lackeys, whatever you wanna call them.

As for everyone else, you CAN have a supporting cast. Spider-Man has friends and the staff at the Daily Bugle after all and this is *kinda* based on the Marvel Comics universe.
I've got the IC to catch up on as well as a few new CS's to go over in the icheck. I'll try and get completely caught up sometime after work this evening. Any other questions or concerns I can also address as well...
@Nightknight Accepted. In my mind I imagine this guy as a more blood thirsty Taskmaster.

@role model The one place I'm concerned for your character is his motivations. He was chosen my Father Time and Mother Nature as a champion, but does he just walk around day to day looking for badguys without having any other real identity or purpose? Is he going to be a homeless superhero? Or is he somehow still connected to the life he had before? Once we get past this, he'll be accepted. A character like this would benefit from being part of a team, we just don't have one in-game yet.

@The Harbinger of Ferocity Accepted.
