So you all know the story basically. Fifty years ago a huge rift opened above the world, apparently everywhere in the world directly 'above' people and started raining down a bunch of stuff. Satellites couldn't pick anything up and the scientists of the world scratched their heads in total confusion. The objects let loose fell into two categories, Discs and Drives. The Discs are palm sized metal objects made of an unknown and unbreakable material with a number of grooves indented on one side and a picture on the other. The Drive's were strange armbands that change to fit whoever puts it on and locks there, with a glass case and a 'player' for three discs. When a Disc is put into a Drive is when the magic happens. The Disc contain the powers and abilities of a single fictional character.

Sometimes its Sherlock Holmes, other times you get yourself Smaug from the Hobbit. Its an utter crapshoot and even today there are more discs being found basically all around the world, always on dry land for whatever reason. Maybe the force that sent them didn't like the idea of littering. Who can say? The only seeming limit thats been found is that the Discs don't contain any historical figures, or at least not direct historical figures. Heard there was a guy out west who can turn into Abraham Lincoln but with an axe and superhuman strength. Beats me on that one. Anyway the entire world kind of got out of wack for a bit, about thirty years of pretty much global chaos.

Then stepped in a group that had come together with some of the strongest Discs and Drivers, and basically smacked the world upside its head and told them to get their collective shit together. It was a slow process, but a year after the period of chaos things kind of got amazing. Best minds in all of fiction came together and essentially turned life pretty damn great worldwide. Robots that can deal with most daily chores, climate change and environmental effects put right, yada yada. Doesn't mean there aren't still problems around the world, just that by and large there is less of it to go around.

The worlds two biggest issues at the moment if you were to ask four out of five people would be the Scratchers and even higher up the D.J. The Scratch are a group of troublemakers who want to collect the best and most powerful Discs for ultimately selfish purposes, and are treated as a minor nuisance at the best of times. While some of their number have shown themselves to be dangerous, by and large they are mostly just a bunch of thugs throwing their weight around.

The D.J. is another matter, a mysterious figure that has a hold on the 'Twilight Collection', a number of the most threatening and dangerous Discs in the world. They end up in the hands of desperate people who use them and spread chaos throughout the world. From alien gods to giant monsters, once they are used they will possess their user. To combat these two threats the world has come together to train a new line of defenders, bringing together the best and brightest to fight back the spread of chaos.

So whatcha say kid, you in?

Welcome to Disc Fall, a cross chaos adventure where players take part in a group meant to stem the tide of chaos when fantasy and reality blend together to all sorts of strange effects. Your character has either sought out or been invited to join the 'Defense League' a group that fights against those that would misuse the Discs and Drivers for their own means.

Terms of Importance

  • Disc: One of the two things let out by the Rift fifty years ago, each containing the power and abilities of a character from fiction. No two Discs are the same, however they can be similar. For instance Golden Age Superman wouldn't be the same as Modern Day Superman. It seems as long as there is enough divergence there will be two Discs.
  • Drives: A device attached to an odd armband that fuses to its user and can only be taken off by them. Each Drive has a unique ability attached to it, for instance 'Empower' which can strengthen a Disc, or 'Fuse' which allows two Discs to be added together to make a combined character. Drive users who put in a Disc will totally transform into the character installed on the Disc, with the exception of the Disc itself. The Drive itself can only be used for a certain period of time which equates to the power of the character installed on the Disc itself, and once it reaches a certain stage will be unaccessable until it recharges.
  • Ego Barrier: A hypothetical 'wall' between a Drive user and the character installed on the Disc. It allows access to the skills, powers, and abilities of the character without directly removing any traits from the user.
  • Ego Break: A 'break' in the Ego Barrier that can occur if using a certain Disc with too much power. Will start to leak thoughts and memories associated with the character into the mind of the user.
  • Ego Death: The result of a full Ego Break, where the character installed on the Disc will completely rewrite the mind of the Drive user. Rare outside of Discs 'gifted' by the D.J., through still a frightening possibility.

Sounds interesting. How will you be handling power balancing?
The Ego Barrier/Break system and the Drive system. One ensures that constant use of a powerful Disc will have adverse effects on the character by itself. The Drive System can only handle a powerful character for a limited amount of time. It will require players to have a little bit of control over how they want to push things, but at the same time I would retain a bit of control to say 'hey you can probably only hold that for about a minute at most' or 'you've been x for like half the scene, your Drive is going to start timing out'.

Ideally people won't godmod and will accept limits, if not then thats just kinda the risk of things and I'll take steps at that point.

Will only combat-orientated characters have combat ability or could someone using Phoenix Wright's Disc knock people back with objections?

Depends on where that particular Phoenix Wright is from. The one in Marvel vs Capcom is different enough from the mainline that they would be different discs, one focusing on his as a fighter and the other as him being a lawyer/investigator

Trying really hard to stay focused
I would like to hesitantly express my interest. Would characters from toy lines be acceptable?

So character sheet page open for all those who are looking forward to the game! Once we have a few people joined in I can set a date for the game proper.

Sounds like a fun bout, I’ll stake my interest

Small question, in the character sheet you mention discs that the characters own preemptively. Will they have those discs for the entire story, and can they mix and match with ones they find along their way?

This is an interesting take. Guess I'll join after I think of what Discs I want.

If I pick a Ben Tennyson Disc, what will the limits be?

Heh, that's funny, in reading this concept, the first thing I related it to was 'Oh, it's kind of like Ben 10'

But I guess the question is...when you gain the abilities of the character of the disc, would you get their weapons and gadgets too? Or just their physical abilities and knowledge?

OK, I just got two character ideas (technically 3):

1. A guy who only has a Ben Tennyson disc. His lack of mastery means that even though he has access to every alien, it times out like the OS Omnitrix and he hasn't learned how to switch between aliens, and in the context of the story, it usually times out before the regular Disc Drive time out can kick in.

2. Two individuals, maybe twins maybe lovers maybe just friends, who just so happen to have Discs that correspond to two halves a complete powerset (e.g. Shotaro & Philip to make Kamen Rider W, WarGreymon & MetalGarurumon to make Omnimon, and a Sentient Sword and Wielder pair from an LN only 10 or so people from this site have heard of.)
