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 for awhile now. 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 a bit, 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 and other players' work as well. Once I got that troll taken care of, I stuck around.

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, Captain Atom, 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.

Everybody doing okay? I know there was some bad bad weather down in Florida, not sure if anybody was effected. Haven't heard from a couple folks in the Discord lately though! Hope everyone is safe!
I should ask before I make my sheet. Will characters gain new abilities during the RP, or should they start with everything they'd have? Also notice this character is far more marvel than DC, as a lot of attacks are kind of similar to ghost rider, although shes ranged instead of melee.


There's the bit in the CS requirements about Sample Storylines. The Potential Episode or the Potential Sub-Plot could either one be used to level up your hero's powers.
@Omega Man See I couldn't even tell you that much! LOL imma go work on my character sheet, I'm wondering since Fury is descended from an amazon could I take their abilities and make them her own but add something special like Wonder Woman has? It's just a thought and it might make a character arc easier to work with


I just remembered they remade Fury in the Earth 2 series a few years back. Biggest difference visually is she isn't blonde and wearing as much gold, but for an Amazon tied to the same island as WW she looks pretty dope.



DC has a ton of great heroes and concepts just sitting on the shelf. Its a damn shame they don't publish books with more of these characters.
@Omega Man
Do you have a minimum age requirement for characters?

I have a few ideas, yet some involve canon characters that have either traditionally started their careers as teenagers or their best-known intepretation is that of a teen. (One character I'm considering is technically so young in the comics I'll have to age her up so much that she'll be an OC.)


You could age a character up, make an older character young again, there's a few different ways to rework a canon. Jakeem Thunder is usually one of the younger members along with Stargirl and Shazam's alter ego Billy Batson. Then you've got characters who debuted in the 40's who're still around.
@Omega Man OOO that sounds perfect for me to use! I love it I'm going to start spitballing ideas now and put them in as soon as I get the character sheet. The only thing I'm scared off is every time I take a cannon and try to make it my own it becomes a whole new character. I also haven't read the comics in a long time and I could never get my hands on the ones we'd be using to base some of our chareters.


I'm only vaguely familiar with many of the characters. With Infinity Inc I just know the ones tied to Green Lantern really. I couldn't tell you much about Hawkman's son as the Silver Scarab, or Al's change from Nuklon to Atom-Smasher, and the characters like Fury and Northwind I'm completely in the dark LOL. I was a fan of the Hector Hall version of Dr. Fate though during that run of JSA, and I very much enjoyed the Return of Hawkman era and spin-off series. Mostly the Geoff Johns written stuff. He managed to make a lot of characters/concepts relevant again like Hourman II and III, the Thunderbolt pen, Power Girl, Sandy, Liberty Belle, etc. The Freedom Fighters started to make a scene in the early 2000's too by a few familiar creators with a mini series or two as well as a monthly just before the New52 killed it. I'm into a few of the 7 Soldiers characters, and I dig how the Young All-Stars were meant to be analogs to the classic characters like Superman and Batman that were no longer part of the Society. Flying Fox actually showed up in a Heroes for Hire type of DC title with Red Tornado and some other C and D listers....

____________________________________

Name – Farris Knight
Alias – Starman
Age – 34
Powers – futuristic biology w/heightened physical attributes; possesses the Quarvat that’s similar in function to a Cosmic Rod able to manipulate cosmic energy and enhance his strength further; flight; space travel; cosmic awareness
Weaknesses – Separated from his Quarvat, Starman is essentially just a futuristic human
Personality – mysterious, stoic, calculating, stressed, ignorant
Experience – 10 years (in the future)

BRIEF Bio –

A member of the 853rd century team of heroes called the Justice Legion Alpha, Starman was a traitor among his teammates after making a deal with the sentient artificial sun Solaris. After meeting the original Starman in the past, Farris went on to sacrifice himself to take down Solaris in the future at the end of the DC One Million crossover. However at the end of that story, things weren’t quite what they seemed. Rather than dying a hero’s death he was thrown back into the past and landed in the present day. Knowing that the original Starman could vouch for him and get him the help he needed to return to his future, Farris was shocked to discover Ted Knight had died just weeks earlier by mysterious circumstances.

After discovering that some part of Solaris may have been sent into the past as well, Farris went to the members of the most recent Justice Society for guidance and help. He brought a picture from the 1950’s of a superhero clad in yellow calling himself Solaris that isn’t anything he remembers from the superhero history books of the future.

Golden Age Legacy – Starman
Sample Story Arcs –

Solaris Reborn: After the team discovers who the superhero in the picture was, they find his grandchildren and confirm he wasn’t a machine tied to an artificial sun from the future. However, the source of his powers WAS tied to the artificial sun. What happens when the hero’s ‘Sun Belt’ comes alive and tries to fuse with the Quarvat? (Potential Episode)

New Star New Man: After his Quarvat gets damaged, Starman uses unfinished cosmic rod tech of Ted Knight’s to refashion his weapon. (Potential Sub-Plot)

Additional Notes – Most of the recent eras of JSA have revolved around a Star-person, so I went with the most futuristic Starman ever and changed his swan song into a trip to the altered past.

I'm interested in creating an original character but I'm not very familiar with the comics.

Would I still be able to join?


I just added some wikis in the opening post for anyone needing some inspiration! Originals have to be tied to a golden age legacy to be considered for this, complete originals will be much harder to get in with unless I'm blown away by the Character Sheet.
<Snipped quote by Omega Man>

I haven't figured that out yet once I get a character sheet I can figure it out I might do something like Wonder Woman but make it more original if that makes any sense.


There was a member of Infinity Inc that was the daughter of an amazon and called Fury. Definitely excited to see what you come up with!

Sure.
Might be interested in trying out a severely gimped Doctor Fate.


Dr. Fate is a low key favorite of mine but I like the weirder eras. I liked that super 90's Zero Hour guy and Hawkman's son as Dr. Fate a lot. And it's always cool when Constantine borrows the helmet...

I've got a character I'd like to use that might be fun, mostly because I wanna try using someone of her type. I will say though, she would technically be original.

library-of-ruina.fandom.com/wiki/Binah

This might be fun or not, I don't know. Its why I'm going to try a character of her archtype.


Originals are gonna be much harder to get in with, especially if it's not based on Golden Age superhero legacies and concepts. But I welcome the CS!

Itching for a superhero roleplay...




_____________

I'll get a CS template up shortly!
Im down for this


Any ideas what character you're gonna use?


During the days of World War II, a group of costumed mystery men gathered together to form the first and greatest superhero team of all time. After years of fighting the good fight many of them retired, others settled down and had children. Some found ways to cheat old age and kept on fighting in their prime. Now, fighting alongside the surviving original members, a new generation of heroes has been born. Promising to uphold the legacy their predecessors created, they inspire other heroes across the world. They are the Justice Society.

The Society didn’t just include a few heroes; multiple TEAMS joined their ranks over the years such as the Freedom Fighters, the All-Stars, members of the Seven Soldiers of Victory, as well as Infinity Inc. The active roster generally included anywhere from one to two dozen heroes.

The Society had been mostly disbanded after the last big crisis. Several of the older guard finally fell to old age, living full lives, having children as well as grandchildren. It was almost like losing a famous athlete or movie star. Ted Knight was one such hero, formerly called Starman. Precogs and telepaths claimed he’d died too early, most just took it as lesser known metahumans looking for attention. However, when his successor from the distant future showed up… it was looking to be the case. Going to surviving members of the last Justice Society for guidance, it was decided that the team would be reformed to help the time displaced hero save the future.




If you’re looking forward to the Black Adam film featuring the JSA, a fan of older superheroes, or possibly the Stargirl tv series... then this is the RP for you!

I’m looking for 6-9 players plus myself, high casual standards, and at least a post a week from everyone. Hoping for a good mix of cannons and reworked cannons, and originals are welcome so long as they’re tied to a member of the JSA or one of it’s absorbed teams. Again, that includes: the Freedom Fighters, the All-Stars, many of the Seven Soldiers of Victory, as well as Infinity Inc. The extended roster of the Justice Society is something to behold. The mystery surrounding Ted Knight’s death and the appearance of the Starman from the future will be just one of several sub-plots in the opening arc that you the players get to help me decide. Sky's the limit when we’re working with this amount of legacy characters and history.

I’m also going to do something a little off-brand for most of my RP’s and allow a secondary character slot to have more additional characters in the background. This won’t be any kind of super fleshed out sidekick, literally just a name and maybe an image with a few minor details about them. Essentially fodder for me to throw at enemies as well as you guys so you can set up scenes and such. Secondary characters MUST be based on canons of the DCU, and they can’t be a character somebody wants for their primary character. So even if I chose somebody like Damage or the Ray… if somebody came in and wanted to use either one of them as their primary I’d give them up. And you don’t have to use a secondary if you don’t want to mine through old characters. It just helps me with choosing NPCs and background characters because frankly I love everything about the golden age. Here's a list of the three mentors/NPC's, as well as a few characters off the table...



NPC’s/Mentors: Mr. Terrific (Holt), Power Girl, Wildcat

Off Limits: the Flash (Garrick), Green Lantern (Scott), Superman, Bat-folk

GM/Me – Starman – Farris Knight

If there’s interest I’ll work up a character sheet skeleton and we can get to work. I’ll likely stick with an episodic format like I’m doing with my other RP (Titans Academy) especially if we get closer to the 10 player total mark. Crossing my fingers for this one cause it’s been a hot minute since I tried anything with these characters. If there's any questions or concerns feel free to shoot me a PM if you don't wanna ask here! Hope to see some familiar faces!
