ABOUT THE RPG

This game is similar to The "Heroes Vs. Villains" Marvel RPG,

However, this one follows a different, non-established continuity, similar (but not in unison) to Marvel's Ultimate line, where the players can re-invent and re-establish each character at his/her career peak, most characters beginning at the start.

- - -

RULES
  • Players can choose any Marvel Comic character they wish. Since there is no established continuity for this universe, some liberties can be taken. However, We ask that you at least try and stay true to the character's basics. (IE: Captain America's a patriot, Daredevil is blind, The X-Men are mutants, ect.) Don't make him or her completely 100% different from his/her's 616 Marvel counterpart.
  • This is in a new continuity. Meaning, this does not tie into the continuity of Ultimate, 2099, or 616 Marvel Comics. (IE: Galactus hasn't invaded, The Avengers aren't formed yet, ect.) So don't play as if any of that has already happen. This is a NEW universe.
  • No Killing. Unnamed faceless NPC's (*Non Player Characters) are okay, but not comic characters. Someone else may want to take up the character, or they may be imporant to another story.
  • You can go anywhere on earth, or travel off planet, but do so within your character's means.
  • Provided you've proven yourself a capable RPG participant, you will be allowed the option of two characters. Characters can be reserved at any point during the season for a period of two weeks.
  • You are your character, so act like it. Talk like them, use their dialogue. Do not exaggerate their powers or abilities, or pop-up here and there without explaination.
  • Several stories can be going at once, and you have the freedom to interact with other characters.
  • Borrowing elements from other mediums aside from the comic books is to be kept to a minimum. But a direct adaptation is prohibited. This RPG is about creativity... Try to your own ideas above all else. (If you're stuck creatively, ask the gamemasters for advice)
  • If your character is closely related to another player's character (Example: Doctor Octopus and Spider-Man, Kingpin and Daredevil, Doctor Doom and Reed Richards), it is strongly suggested that you PM the other player about your plans, so they can plan accordingly.
  • No Time Travel. (Unless someone is playing a character who needs that.)
  • You must post every two weeks, though it is preferred that you post more. If you go two weeks without a post without prior notice, your character is be up for grabs.
  • All regular Hype rules also apply.
  • Have fun.

Screenname: byrd_man

Character You Would Like To Play: Tony Stark/Iron Man

Powers: Genius-level intelligence, Powered armor grants:Super-strength, Flight, Energy blasts and enables Iron Man to communicate with other machines.

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point):
Born to a life of privledge, Tony Stark skated through life on easy street. His genius level IQ hardly being put to use as he barely tried in school. Looking for the next party and next gitl to share a bed with.

He was 18 when his parents died in a airplane crash. Stark Technologies and his future were shoved into his reluctant hands. Five years later, Tony has turned the company into a world leading arms producer aswell as turning the cornerstone on the media buisness. He still loves the night life and is something of a paparazzi darling. That all changed the week he went to Iraq. Tony's caravan was ambushed by terrorist. Stark was kidnapped along with his military escort James Rhodes. The two of them were forced to work with terrorist on weapons and new forms of bombs. Unknown to the terrorist. Stark and Rhodes have been working on something in secret...


Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. I've always had an intrest in playing him, now I hope I can get the chance.

2. I got some ideas on what to do with him and his cast of characters.

3. Call it movie buzz, if you wish.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): Well, Tony Stark is already a great character. I plan on turning his playboy image up a few notches, make him the male version of Paris Hilton.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player):

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Tony is just plain red/Iron Man is red and Fixedsys.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

Iraq

"Hurry up with those bombs, Infadels!"

One of the terrorist pokes me with the barrell of his AK-47 and laughs.

"Yes, I will be back for the bombs. If they do not meet out standars. You will be killed."

The guard leaves the room and James looks to make sure he's gone.

"Alright, go man."

I quickly crouch down and dig underneath the table, the slab of iron i've been working on for weeks is almost done. This is the last part of the suit.

"Alright, turn on the tanks."

James turns on the oxygen and the acetylene and I strike up the torch. Cutting into the metal and making the faceplate.

"Is this gonna work?"

I dip the faceplate into the water and watch as it hisses and cools.



"It's going to have to work."

I look back at him as the faceplate cools and becomes touchable.

"Time to armor up."

'DAWN OF MARVELS' RPG Application

Screenname: Master Bruce

Character You Would Like To Play: Spider-Man/Peter Parker

Powers: Spider-Man possesses amazing arachnid like agility, grace, strength, and stamina. Additionally, he can shoot an organic webbing substance from his wrists, stick and cling to any surface as a result of miniature defensive and offensive "needles" that can be controlled throughout his body, and possesses a pre-cognitive sense that allows him to predict danger seconds before it occurs.

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point): A student of Empire State University with the highest honors in the scientific field from High School, the 19 year old Peter Parker's dreams of becoming a renowned and famous inventor seemed to be a sure thing when Peter's friend Harry Osborn managed to talk his father into reserving a spot for him. But when the company went to near bankruptcy and the spot had to be dropped, Peter found himself desperate for money, as he had hoped to help his Uncle Ben and Aunt May pay off their debts for all of the years they had spent raising him. Looking to get a part time job with Doctor Curt Conner's physicianary firm, Peter was accidentally bitten on the hand by a lab spider that had escaped the facility's testing grounds.

At first, the spider's effects seemed minimal, as Conners himself checked Peter's blood after the incident. Going home, citing that he didn't feel well as a result of the stress, Peter's body went through a dramatic change overnight, as the spider venom proceeded to bond with his DNA. By the time Peter woke up, he was both shocked and amazed to find that he was clung to his bedroom ceiling. Realising that his physique had also improved, Peter began to discover other strange abilities, as he accidentally shot out what appeared to be a web during a job interview that, needless to say, didn't turn out well. But as Peter began to realise he had become superpowerful, he began to get cocky, showing off and using his powers for his own gain to both humiliate a college rival named Eugene "Flash" Thompson, and impress the former cheerleader captain and the love of Peter's life, Gwen Stacy.

Entering a stunt show at the Liberty Island fair, donned in a mask and bug-like goggles, Peter amazed the crowd with his abilities. Impressing a producer for MTV, Peter was finally offered a true job when he agreed to appear in his own reality show. But realising that his identity couldn't be exposed, for fear that his life would become extremely complicated, Peter crafted a homemade costume to hide his identity and add to his gimmick, dubbing himself "Arachnoid", a name that would later be ditched upon realising it was too corny.

Arriving on set to shoot the pilot of his show, Peter witnessed a robbery take place at the ticket booth. But already in a hurry, and citing that he had more important things to worry about, Peter simply let the thug run past him as he entered the studio.

With his first taping a true success, as a live audience was capitivated by the stunts Peter had displayed, Peter went to stop for some coffee before heading home. It was at the local coffee shop that Peter approached a crime scene, as the owner had been brutally shot down and murdered. Realising, horrifically, that it was none other than his Uncle Ben before he could truly confirm it, Peter demanded to know where the murderer was. Being told he had fleed to hide in Brooklyn, Peter dashed across the city and changed into his costume.

Confronting the murderer as he took hostages to try and escape, the gunman was caught off guard and defeated by an enraged Peter, who proceeded to attempt to kill him. But when Peter got a look at his face, he was shocked to learn that the murderer was none other than the same man that he had let rob the ticket booth. Turning the murderer over to the police, that night, Peter Parker learned a powerful lesson that would haunt him for years to come: With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility.

Taking this notion to heart, and realising he could no longer let himself be selfish, Peter used the costume and abilities to help other people, taking on criminals and lower level street gangs, and easily subduing them for the police. This managed to catch the attention of a suffering tabloid, The Daily Bugle, who proceeded to flame Peter's alter-ego for being a freak, and perhaps even a mutant, a race of which had threatened humankind with a war declaration led by Magneto. Dubbed "The Unamusing Spider-Man" by the tabloid's readers, and columnist Edward Brock, Peter realised that being a hero came with a price, as he continues using his powers and abilities to carry on his responsibility as The Spectacular Spider-Man.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. Spider-Man is my favorite Marvel character ever, and among my favorite comic book characters.

2. I have ideas for a new interpretation of him, one of which I can't play in any other RPG.

3. Since I've thought up concepts for this character above all others, I've already got ideas in mind for his rogues' gallery, aswell, should anyone want to play them, and need ideas.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): I want to make this Spider-Man a bit darker. Peter's usually a do-gooder and an optimist with, ironically, low self esteem, which he hides with wisecracks and puns when doing battle. I don't want to change that, but rather simplify it, as while he'll have a sense of humor, it'll flow more naturally, as opposed to him going out of his way to make one. I also want to show Peter's struggles with employment and every day problems, aswell as living in darker times and having to resort to a darker ego to blend into them.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I think, from what I've been told of my experience in the 616 and One Universe RPG's, that I can bring forth a faithful portrayl of Spider-Man admist the changes I'll be making. I also want to try and entertain people with my own versions of his supporting cast, including everyone from Aunt May, to J. Jonah Jameson, right down to Harry Osborn and Mary Jane Watson.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Spider-Man, Red Bold Verdana. Peter Parker, Red Verdana.

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

...WHAT?!

Peter Parker stared, wide eyed, down at the paper in his hands. He wanted to rip it apart in anguish, but he was almost sure he'd be cited for littering. So he kept his rants to himself. However, would anyone have heard said rants, they would've fleed the area in fear of what Peter might have done, given how annoyed he was.

I can't believe this! I just can't! Why is this happening to me?!

In his hand rested a copy of The Daily Bugle, a tabloid of which no one but sleep deprived degenerates and broke mentally inept even considered picking up. But since Peter had fit the "broke" citera, he had found himself picking up a copy during a walk home from another failed job interview. And what he read, needless to say, had caught his attention. And not in a good way.

"Suspects of 32nd street robbery were apprehended earlier this morning, found in what can only be described as a makeshift, human sized webbing. And while the suspects are currently pending charges, and have been said to have had no accomplaces, it is this reporter's opinion that this was simply not the case. While many have stated the vigilante is infact, one of heroism, we have absolutely no proof behind the motives of the masked mutant menace known to the Big Apple as "The Spider-Man". So in relative theory, how long will it take before his acts of brutal heroism (brutal, folks, by the way, is not to be tolerated), turn into acts of self involved attacks on the innocent of New York? We at the Daily Bugle think that may be a question better left to the police, who should be on a city-wide manhunt for the wallcrawler." ...A city-wide manhunt?! For what?! That's just a load of crap! A complete load!

Sighing to himself, and crumbling up the issue, Peter tossed it into a nearby recycle bin and headed out to the streets. He didn't have time for such biased garbage... He had to schedule another job interview by the night's end, because he knew if he didn't, he, and his Aunt May would be living at a shelter in due time. But what kind of job could he find? Who would actually take him?

Peter's eyes widened, as he realised that his skull was vibrating. That usually happened whenever trouble arose, near him. Looking around, a bit frantically, Peter peered into an alleyway as he spotted a mugger holding up a defenseless young woman. Looking around, and spotting a phonebooth, Peter considered it for a second. Then, he shook his head.

Too 70's.

Opting for a rooftop above him, Peter leaped up, effortlessly, and scaled the building in seconds, lifiting up his shirt to reveal the crimson webbed pattern that lied beneath it.

On the streets, the mugger was getting impatient with the woman, as she struggled to dig out her valubles for him. Grabbing her by the throat, the woman began to cry, as the mugger decided to cease the entire bag for himself. Throwing her a smile, covering his rancid breath, the mugger clicked the barrel of his gun and whispered to the woman.

"Say a word, I'll make you a memory, darlin'.", He stated, evilly, as the woman could only nod in between silent cries. Walking back, gun aimed, the mugger proceeded to run forward, laughing to himself. What an easy score. It was almost like he didn't even need to try.

That was when he heard the sound. The sound that muggers on this side of the city usually heard, before they found themselves prey to an unseen strand of webbing. To which the mugger did, upon feeling something yank his hand. Looking back, the thug found himself dragged backwards in a swift motion, as a scarlet and black figure rested on the wall above the area, pulling with all of his might.

In a flash, the figure had leaped from one side of the wall to the other, before pouncing on the thug and wordlessly, aswell as effortlessly, pummelling the thug into oblivion, letting the bruised and battered creep fall to the ground in a slump. The figure turned, silently viewing the scared young woman, before turning and firing a web to her purse, and leaping to her.

Resting the purse on the ground infront of her, He nodded, once, reassuring she was alright, and leaped onto the wall. The woman looked up, slightly dazed from what had just happened, and how fast it had happened, as she asked him, "Wh... Who are you?"

The figure paused, mid crawl, before looking back. He didn't know if he should say anything, or even what to say. But then, the tabloid headline came back into his mind. And suddenly, he realised... he really needed to start improving his own reputation.

"I'm... Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?", Spider-Man stated, a bit unsure, before leaping back into the sky and firing out a webline, swininging into the night.

...Wow, that was corny.

Bummer, I think it's a little unfair that people that have already reserved one character should get to reserve another (because someone else might want to pick that up as their primary character), but yeah.. I guess I'll have to wrack my brain for a different character then .

Character You Would Like To Play: Wolverine/Logan

Powers: Wolverine's mutant healing factor enables him to recover from virtually any injury in a matter of minutes to hours. His enhanced senses make him an excellent tracker. His bones have been bonded with unbreakable adamantium, and he has six claws made of the same material.

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point):
Logan possesses memories of being a Samurai in Japan, a mercenary operative for the Central Intelligence Agency, and a "wild man" in the Canadian wilderness. Due to extensive memory implants given to Logan through the Weapon X program, any or all of these memories are suspect. Logan has at least one memory of meeting Captain America (Steve Rogers) in World War II while he was in the Canadian Army which has been verified as true. Sometime after World War II, Logan was taken by a group of scientists led by Dr. Cornelius as part of the Weapon X program. Cornelius was hired to perfect and use a technique that would bond the indestructible element adamantium to human bone cells. Logan's skeleton was bonded to the adamantium, and he was indoctrinated into the Weapon X assassin program. Wolverine was conscripted by Department H, and for his first mission was sent against the incredible Hulk. Wolverine was subsequently approached by Professor Charles Xavier, who was looking for mutants to help his students, the X-Men, escape from the island-being known as Krakoa, which had captured them. Wolverine left Alpha Flight to accompany Xavier and rescue the captured X-Men. After Krakoa was defeated, Wolverine decided to stay with the X-Men, for reasons which included that he had fallen for Marvel Girl (Jean Grey). Logan remained with the X-Men for quite some time, at one time being their field commander, and encountered adversaries such as Proteus (Kevin MacTaggart), Magneto (Magnus), the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, the Brood, the Reavers, demons from the dimension of Limbo, the Marauders, the Morlocks, and even Dracula on one occasion.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. I've never played an X-Man before.

2. I think his claws are awesome!

3. *SNIKT* "Do you really wanna mess with me, bub..."

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person : a Tough soldier on the outside, and heroic and deep on the inside.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I can bring my cool, imaginative writing. I can bring my knowledge of all things Marvel.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better):
orange bold Verdana

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

I was in a bar in Westchester, NY when Xavier wanted me to lead the X-Men. I was there because I needed to get away from it all. Sabertooth, Alpha Flight, Weapon X... It was just frustrating. I figured I need a vacation, so I took the first plane out of Canada and headed to New York. But like I said before, I was in a bar sippin' down some cold ones, when this bald guy in a wheelchair rolled up to my barstool.

"Hello, Logan. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Professor Charles Francis Xavier, or Professor X as some of my students may call me."

"Well what do you want, Chuck?"

You have some interesting abilities Logan, or should I say Wolverine? Enhanced healing, hyperactive senses and adamantium bones and claws.

"What the hell? How did you just do that!?! How the hell did you know my codename!?!"

It is amazing what mutants can do, don't you agree Wolverine? Considering that's what we are.... mutants...

"OK bub! You'd better stop talkin' in my head or else you're gonna..."

"OK Logan. Calm down. I need your help."

"What is it you need!?!" I said getting impatient.

"I want you to lead my team, my X-Men, because we want what you do, we want humans and mutants to live together in peace and harmony, and it's the X-Men's job to fight all who oppose that ideal and endanger the earth doing so, but the team is raw and needs leadership and discipline and I thought who better than the former leader of Alpha Flight..."

I saw where Xavier was comin' at. I agreed with him too. So I got to thinkin', what's the worst that could happen?

"X-Men huh? What the heck, I'll give it a shot, I've been achin' for a good scrap."

'DAWN OF MARVELS' RPG Application

Screenname: The Question

Character You Would Like To Play: Doctor Victor Von Doom

Powers: Doom is a non-enhanced human being. However, he is a brilliant engineer and physicist, with a great deal of knowledge in various other fields. He is also an acomplished mystic, well versed in various mystical philosophies and orders, including Thelema, Wicca, The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and others. As such, he is capable of divination, summoning and expelling spirits and mystical entities, exorcisms, and astral projection. As a part of his religious practices, he keeps in excelent physical condition, and is a skilled hand to hand combatant. He wears a suit of powered body armor of his own invention, granting him protection from small arms fire and enhanced strength and speed. It has taser circuitry woven into it, giving him a "shocking" touch when he needs to. He also carries a Walther P22 Target on his person at all times, with the exception of, of course, diplomatic meetings.

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point): Victor Von Doom was born in a small village located near the capital city of Latveria, Doomsdadt, to the local village doctor and his wife, a fortune teller and one of the few remaining gypsies in Latveria. As the school system in Latveria was flawed (to put it mildly), he was schooled at home. From his father, Victor gained a great deal of respect for the power of science, and from his mother, he gained an interest in religion and spirituality. However, his education was cut short when the Latverian secret police killed his parents. His father, you see, had been involved with several anti-fascist movement. Nothing violent, simply protests and debates, but the government wasn't particularly fond of any disobediance, and, added that the Von Doom family were the last remnants of the old, English descended aristocratic family who once ran the country, and that the government just doesn;t really like gypsies, it was enough for them to go in for the kill.

Becoming an orphan, Doom drifted through the streets, eventually getting noticed for his brilliance and getting a scholorship at Empire State University in America. There he met and befriended Ree Richards and Ben Grimm. Whule studying at ESU, Doom began experimenting with the possibility of communicating with the dead. Inspired by several paranormal accounts, he spent months reaserching. Finally, he asked Reed's help in building the machine. However, Doom made a mistake with the wiring, and the device exploded, causing Doom to be scarred in the fire. When the Dean investigated, Reed opted not to cover for Doom's mistake, feeling that he needed to be responsible for his own actions, and Doom was expelled.

Doom spent the next several years wandering Asia and Europe, eventially finding a small temple in the mountains around Latveria. There, he expanded upon his mystical and scientific skills, and forged a crude version of his now famour body armor. He went into Doomsdadt, and became a major revolutionary icon, eventually overthrowing the fascist regime and declaring himself king.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. We need an arch villain.

2. I had a pretty good idea on how to reinvent Doom.

3. I like the character.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): He is a fair and just king, but he is quite devious, and has long term goals of conquest that make him very dangerous. Expect some plots that are a little less James Bond and a little more WWIII. So, armies of Doombots and crazy steampunk weapons.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): A great villain. And good writing.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): "Hello, Reed."

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

The croud stands before me. Over one thounsand people, standing together in anticipation.

My people.

I step out from behind the green velvet curtain, and a tidal wave of cheers and applause wash over me. I stand behind the podium.

"My people. My friends. Today, you are free. Free from the tyrany of the fascists who stole this great nation from you. This nation now rests upon the shoulders of the Von Doom family once again. As God intended. This country is mine. And I share it with all of you. From this day forward, we will all strive to make Latveria great once again. And then, we will share or prosperity, and our greatness, with the entire world. This is my dream, and I would give my life to defend it.

The applause thunders like nothing I've ever heard before. My people love me, for I have saved our country.


And one day, soon, I shall save the world.

I was just saying, that's one of the problems with having two characters so early on, but meh .

Oh, Q and Blacklight. You two are approved.

'DAWN OF MARVELS' RPG Application

Screenname: The Question

Character You Would Like To Play: The Black Panther

Powers: T'Challa possesses no superhuman abilities. However, he is an excelent athlete and a skilled hand to hand combatant. His main area of combat expertese, however, is stealth and geurilla warfare. He is also well versed in metalurgy, electronics, and engineering, and makes most of his own weaponry. He wears a specially deigned suit, combining the ceremonial warrior garb of the King of Wakanda and various modern upgrades of his own design. The suit is linned with Vibranium, making it bullet proof and lessening the sound he makes when he walks. The gloves have retractible claws, enabling for better climbing. He carried a collapsable staff for hand to hand combat, several throwing knives, and a handful of explosives on his person. He also carries a blowgun with several sedative darts. As his combat style heavily relies on stealth, he usually simply hits someone witha dart and waits for them to lose consciousness before tying them up. His mask is also equipt with micro night vision lenses of his own design.

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point): T'Challa was the youngest son of T'Chaka, King of Wakanda and holder of the warrior title "Black Panther." Years ago, a European scientist names Ulyssese Klaw requisioned the Wakandan government to use samples of their main economic export: The rare metal known as Vibranium. However, T'Chaka refused the request, mostly due to the number of murders that Klaw was suspected for in Europe. Months later, when T'Challa was barely ten, Klaw led a small group of mercenaries at one of Wakanda's refineries to steal the Vibranium. T'Chaka and his sons were there that day, and T'Chaka tried to defend the refinery. Klaw killed him. In a fit of rage, T'Challa grabbed his father's knife and cut off Klaw's hand. Klaw almost killed T'Challa, but was scared of by oncoming Wakandan reinforcements.

Shortly afterwards, T'Challa's elder brother, Jakarra, at the time 18, ascended to the throne. Jakarra's greed and corruption quickly became aparrant, and he began forming alliances with the local criminal orginizations. Rumor has it that he even secretly made a deal with Klaw, saying that he would leave Klaw's criminal orginizations alone as long as he got a cut. Fearing for what her eldest son would do to her youngest, N'Yami, the Queen Mother, sent T'Challa away to boarding school in America. There, T'Challa planned to overthrow his brother.

While persuing his academic studies, he also trained in hand to hand combat and the use of weapons. He initially intended to enroll at a camp for private commando training, but, while atending Empire State University, he met an old, homeless blind Ninjitsu expert and his equally blind student, and trained with them, trying to stay as far below the radar as possible.

With the news that his mother was dying of an unexplained illness, he returned home and stayed at her bedside until she died. He then told his brother that he was staying in Wakanda, and became a science teacher in the public school system. One night, he stole the ceremonial warrior garb of the Black Panther and customized it for his own uses. He is now acting as something of a vigilante in the inner city slums in the capitol of Wakanda, while trying to construct a plan to root out the corruption on his country, get revenge on Klaw, and overthrow his brother. He's got alot of work to do.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. I've always been a fan of Black Panther.

2. I had a good idea of how to reimagine him.

3. I think I can do some cool stuff with him.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): I plan on showing his rise to power and what he has to go to to make his country great again.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): A character who is equal parts Batman, V, and Hamlet. And good writing.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Arial Black

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

Four men walk silently along the dark city streets. As they walk, they give the impression of being quite carefree, as if they've no worries in the world.


Just today, they have raped and savagely beaten three women.


Suddenly, they hear a low, beastly growl eminating from the shadows of a nearby alley. One of them takes out his gun and slowsly walks towards the alley.

"<What are you doing?>" says one of his companions.

He doesn't respond, and walks into the alley. As he does, he hears a slight "WHOOSH" like sound, like a small, short, yet powerful wind. He looks around him. There is nothing there. He turns back to his fellows.

"<What was that about?>" asks one of them.

"<Nothing>" he says. "<I heard something. Thought it was...>"

"<The Black Panther?>" asks another.

"<Yes>" he says.

"<Oh come on!>" says his first friend. "<You don't honestly believe that crap, do you? The panther king died over ten years ago.>"

"<But there have been all these sightings of the Black Panther. What do you make of that?>" he says.

"<Just the wishful thinking of a bunch of poor, superstitious morons. Plus maybe a few idiots going along with it, playing dress up, and getting into a few fights>" says his friend.

"<I've heard that it's the Panther God himself, angry at Wakanda for becoming so corrupt>" says the third man in the group.

"<There is no Panther God>" says the first man.

"<How can you say that?>" says the fourth man.

"<I'm an athiest>" the first man says. "<That's how."

One of them mean reaches into his pocket for a cigarrette.

"<You may say that now>" he says, "<but just you wait....>"

He dropps the cigarette and suddenly clutches the back of his neck. He begins breathing very hard and walks around as if quite drunk. The then falls over.

The first man walks over to him.

"<What the hell...?>"

Suddenly, the other two clutch thier necks as well. Moments later, they fall to the ground. The last man standing takes out his gun.

"<What the ****'s going on here?>"

Suddenly, he hears a voice from the alley behind him.

"<You're an athiest?>"

He turns around, only have the gun pulled from his hand and his finger broken.

"<That's quite unfortunate...>" says the voice from the alley. The dark figure pushes the man to the ground and walks towards him. The man looks up, and sees, standing over him, The Black Panther.

"<....because right now, I would suggest praying.>"

'DAWN OF MARVELS' RPG Application

Screenname: Charlie No-One

Character You Would Like To Play: Jean Grey

Powers: Telekinesis on an atomic level and telepathy.

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point): Jean Grey was born in a small town in
New York. All through her life she was an outcast. No one in school liked her because she wasn’t into sports, didn’t buy the trendiest clothes, and hung out with the people who weren’t considered “normal.”

On the first day of 12th grade, Jean found out that she was a mutant. It was in science class. The teacher was passing out textbooks and when she came to Jean, people started making fun of her. In a fit of rage, Jean sent the textbook flying across the room. From that day on, life for the future Marvel Girl was living hell. Everyday she was made fun and everyday her powers would develop more and more. She could hear her classmates’ thoughts, sense their feelings. Her parents grew worried and tried seeking medical help. They could find nothing. The something terrible happened.

On the last day of school, Jean had too much of people making fun of her. She lost total control of her powers; she wasn’t even the same person anymore. The person that was using poor Jean’s body called herself the Phoenix. She telekinetically destroyed the school around her. The Phoenix would have killed the students too if it hadn’t been for Charles Xavier. He responded to her parent’s cry for help and came to the school at just the right moment. He shut down her mind and took her to his school especially made for mutants.

While she was unconscious, he placed barriers in her mind that blocked her from using her powers at their maximum level. When she awoke, he asked Jean and her family if he could take Jean in as the first student at his school. They accepted. After a few years of perfecting their powers, Charles’ team of mutants: Cyclops, Psylocke, Jean, Wolverine, Storm, and Colossus formed the X-Men.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. Jean Grey is my favorite comic book character ever.

2. I want to take on a new version of the character.

3. Telekinesis would be a fun power to have and I would like to explore it.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): I am giving her a new personality and a different origin to the
Phoenix. I want to explore her relationships with the other students.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I have RP’ed before. I can bring interesting stories.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Bold, Veranda, Green

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:


Jean looked around the cafeteria. Of course, she would be sitting alone again today. Her friends were on the trip to New York with the rest of her theatre class. She could have gone, but, you know, she was a mutant, and mutants are dangerous. The principal requested that she be excluded from the trip.


The redhead sat down on a table way in the back of the starch white room and placed her brown paper bag on the table before her. Samantha, Frankford High’s resident *****, sat down in front of her.

“Hey Jeannie, how’s your lunch?”

“Let me stop you right there. My name is Jean. Not Jeannie. And since when did you care about how I felt anyway? As far as I can remember, the only time you talk to me is to make fun of my hair or my clothes or-“

“Or the fact that you’re a mutie? Your kind is trash. God only knows, why you pieces of **** even exist!”

“God only knows, huh? How about you go and ask him!” Jean cried, pushing her hands forward. Samantha went flying across the cafeteria, landing on her back near the garbage cans. The teachers looked around, astonished by the feat.

“I never did anything to any of you people and all you guys do is make fun of me! Well next time, maybe you’ll think twice,” she exclaimed before rushing out of the cafeteria.

The person that was using poor Jean’s body called herself the Phoenix. She telekinetically destroyed the school around her. The Phoenix would have killed the students too if it hadn’t been for Charles Xavier. He responded to her parent’s cry for help and came to the school at just the right moment. He shut down her mind and took her to his school especially made for mutants.

While she was unconscious, he placed barriers in her mind that blocked her from using her powers at their maximum level. When she awoke, he asked Jean and her family if he could take Jean in as the first student at his school. They accepted. After a few years of perfecting their powers, Charles’ team of mutants: Cyclops, Psylocke, Jean, Wolverine, Storm, and Colossus formed the X-Men.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. Jean Grey is my favorite comic book character ever.

2. I want to take on a new version of the character.

3. Telekinesis would be a fun power to have and I would like to explore it.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): I am giving her a new personality and a different origin to the Phoenix. I want to explore her relationships with the other students.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I have RP’ed before. I can bring interesting stories.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): Bold, Veranda, Green

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

Jean looked around the cafeteria. Of course, she would be sitting alone again today. Her friends were on the trip to New York with the rest of her theatre class. She could have gone, but, you know, she was a mutant, and mutants are dangerous. The principal requested that she be excluded from the trip.


The redhead sat down on a table way in the back of the starch white room and placed her brown paper bag on the table before her. Samantha, Frankford High’s resident *****, sat down in front of her.

“Hey Jeannie, how’s your lunch?”

“Let me stop you right there. My name is Jean. Not Jeannie. And since when did you care about how I felt anyway? As far as I can remember, the only time you talk to me is to make fun of my hair or my clothes or-“

“Or the fact that you’re a mutie? Your kind is trash. God only knows, why you pieces of **** even exist!”

“God only knows, huh? How about you go and ask him!” Jean cried, pushing her hands forward. Samantha went flying across the cafeteria, landing on her back near the garbage cans. The teachers looked around, astonished by the feat.

“I never did anything to any of you people and all you guys do is make fun of me! Well next time, maybe you’ll think twice,” she exclaimed before rushing out of the cafeteria.

Roster updated.

'DAWN OF MARVELS' RPG Application

Screenname: Master Bruce

Character You Would Like To Play: Deadpool

Powers: Aside from an aqquired healing factor, Wade is a highly skilled combatant, arsenalist, and swordsman. Having peak strength, agility, reflexes, and endurance, Wade has also mastered what he refers to as "Wadeism", which is a form of knowledge-seeking powers that tend to make him black out, only to wake up with more knowledge than he should have, even to the point that he's realised that he's actually a fictional character. Though this power is still a mystery to him, he has vowed to find out it's secret, "or his name isn't Master Bruce".

Basic History Of The Character (Up until this point): Winston "Wade" Wilson was born a test-tube child in the facilities of the then-experimental Weapon X facility, where he was supposed to be created as the ultimate assassin, devoid of any feeling or remorse, only capable of learning the deadliest skills known to man in the field of combat and stealth. For years, it seemed as if this was going to become reality, as Wade excelled in every form he was trained in. But upon his sixteenth birthday, Wade discovered something that would ultimately damage and hinder the project's success: Television.

Absolutely fascinated with the world of pop-culture and fantastical realities, Wade spent night and day watching whatever he could, locking himself in his cell in the facility until the guards finally managed to break in. But by the time they got to Wade, it was too late. His mind had already been tainted by the constant hours of television and fantasy programming. Successfully killing the guards with ease, mainly angered by the fact that he had been kept from the greatness that was "Doctor Who" for all of these years, Wade escaped the facility with an arsenal of weapons and armor that he would spend years forging into a makeshift costume. Emerging from Canada and into America at age 23, Wade now called himself "Deadpool", naming himself after a 1988 film starring Clint Eastwood, and began to work the rounds as an assassin-for-hire.

But upon recieving a job to assassinate a powerful team of mutants, Wade does not remember what happened between that point and the present, as he wakes up only to soon discover that the year is 2007, despite recieving his task in 2002. Distraught at the apparent memory loss, Deadpool has discovered that he has learned strange bits of information from, seemingly, other realms. Though confused at the fact that the past 5 years of his life are apparentally missing, Wade continues on seeking mercenary work, even though his sanity has suffered to an even greater loss than before.

Three Reasons Why You Have Chosen That Character:

1. I've always wanted to play Deadpool. I just never seemed to find the right RPG to portray him in.

2. We need more villains. And since Wade has always treaded the line between good and evil, I figured I could play him more towards the villains side until I felt bored with that approach, and still make it work.

3. I think that Wade presents alot of opprotunities I can't have with other characters. Since he's a mercenary for hire, he can practically meet anyone in the Marvel universe, should they have a price on their head. And since I plan to portray my Spider-Man a bit edgier, I think Wade can be a great outlet for some more comedic writing.

What Do You Plan On Doing With This Character As A Person (IE: How are you changing him or her?): Well, his origin strays pretty far from the comic book origin, for one thing. So I'll definately have that going for me. I also plan to play Wade as a mix between James Bond, Doctor Who, Jason Bourne, and Ace Ventura, Pet Detective.

Two Complete Sentences In Proper English Explaining What You Can Bring To This RPG (As A Player): I like to think that I'm at least a decent storyteller, so I guess there's that. I also like to write alot of random ****, which is pretty much exactly what I'm gonna try to do with Wade's characterisation.

What Fonts Do You Plan To Use For Your Character’s Speech? (Makes the roster look better): "There's no need to fear, UnderWade is here! Heh. UnderWade. Like underwear. I gotta write that down!"

Please Provide A Small Sample Post In The Format You Wish To Portray Your Character In:

Shots ring out in the Czech republic, as it's villagers begin fleeing in horror. But the fact remains that, despite the gunfire, that's not the true reason any are actually running. What they're running from is the constant yammering that spews from him.

"FOUUUUURRR!!!"

The mercenary/assassin for hire/voice actor/spokesmodel for Calvin's miracle pimple cream, known better as Deadpool, slashed a nearby rogue assassin across the throat, swinging his katanna as if it were a golf club. The assassin's squadron continued on their attack against this relatively unpredicted threat, straight faced, utterly confused as the assassin inched closer towards their armed leader, who had decided long ago that this battle needed to be over.

Deadpool turned, sliding his katanna into it's holster, as he kicked another rogue assassin across the chest, visible amusement protruding from his mask.

"Did I get the birdie?", Deadpool asked, as the assassin pointed his gun towards his head.
In a foreign tongue, the assassin angrily spoke out.

<"I do not know who you are, baffoon, but I'm afraid you will not live to see the sunrise!">, The assasin stated, before firing off a round in Deadpool's forehead.

For a moment, things became quiet, as the assassin's men retracted their weapons, fully believing their attacker to be dead. But moments later, a gun found it's way to the leader's face, as Deadpool's head suddenly shot up, a fresh, but unbloodied hole visible through his mask.

"Right. Hate to burst your bubble, comprende...", Deadpool spouted, before firing a round into the assasin's chest, instantly downing him.



"...But I've already read the next post. And guess which one of us doesn't have his heart blown out of his chest?"

Satisfied, Wade reloaded his weapon, as the surrounding assassins stared in awe at their now dead leader.

"Heh. Cool. I can speak Russian, now."

Wade then paused, confused at a startling revelation.

"Or was that portegeuse? French? Aw, nuts. Hey dead guy, what language was that again?"

No.

Did you want Deadpool? Because I'd be fine if you took him.

Hype sometimes flukes like that. Especially with me, it seems.

Just resend it and I'll try and get back to you.
