The DC universe, as we know it, is brimming with all three. Stories upon stories of powerful beings fighting against varied injustices - saving those who need saving from the deadliest of foes, those of whom are equally as powerful. But no matter power and no matter might, everyone must start somewhere.
The humblest of beginnings.
And where better to begin than Elsewhere?
The year is 2021 and these heroes … these gods … scarce exist. A green arrow yet to be shot, a canary cry never but heard and a bat sign far from lighting up Gotham’s midnight sky. This is an alternate Earth. One where these characters do not resemble themselves - their counterparts we’ve grown to love and cherish. To root for, and to root against. A new timeline. A new universe. A fresh and creative take on heroes and villains -
The concept is simple. You have creative will. Create new characters to rise up within this new DC universe, or take old ones and remake them to your liking. Do the same with their once classic stories. We’re starting from “canon scratch” and putting our own unique spin on things. A DC roleplay unlike any other.
The plot is also simple. As stated, the year is 2021 and the world needs heroes - desperately. Fortunate for the world, a young man has recently come out as the mysterious “Super-Man” figure, who has been the front page of every weekly tabloid for the last several months. With his press statement, in which he revealed his true nature ...
The Superman has unknowingly ushered in a new era. He has unlocked a door that will never again be closed. This is the time to stand up. To do something. This fresh world and this universe will never be the same.
From Gotham to Star City, and Metropolis to Bludhaven,
Heroes are waking up.
Ready to reach out from those humble beginnings. Ready to do their part.
But as they awaken,
So do those who seek to do harm.
This is it.
So I’m going through a bit of a crazy DC phase right now. Used to be super into the comics when I was younger, and my love has recently resurfaced and doesn’t seem to be going back down anytime soon. So I thought I’d set up a roleplay to help. This is just the basics of it, but I plan to have things up and running soon ( whether this gets traction or not ). So let me know if you’re interested or if you have any questions. I wanna just have fun and get creative with it, but I may be a lil’ strict on the playing of certain characters. If you wanna end up being someone big like Bats or a Green Lantern, I have to know that you’ve got what it takes. I want this to be casual enough and fun, while also having some meat to it. I want there to be grit and some level of maturity in the writing itself and the actual themes we end up dealing with.
I’m expecting posts to be at least two paragraphs, with a definite recommendation of going over that minimum. I wanna have fun, but I also want a place where we can flex the writing and character/storyline creation skills.
Let me know if you guys are interested!
Can’t wait to get started.
