    Screenname of the Proposed RPG’s Game Master: Batman

    Do You Have An Instant Messenger that we can reach you on for better conversation? (i.e MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ect.) And if so, what is your screenname?: Skype me as mastervain, Facebook me, whatever you need to do. Most of you all know where to find me.

    Gamemasters/Assistant Gamemasters already chosen: Carnage27

    How will the overall layout of the RPG be?: I think you all know the drill. Like the game Johnny Blaze established before this, it's an ongoing One Universe game that takes place in the most alternate of alternate universes you can imagine - literally, you'll be the ones imagining it. You're allowed to do anything you want with any hero character you desire to play. Want Superman to be an agent for the Kree? Go for it. You want Clint Barton to be this Earth's Captain America? You're allowed to do that. Whatever "franchise" you desire, you get complete creative control over their origins, their supporting cast, their rogues gallery, and team affiliations. This is the Ultimate One Universe, where anything is possible.

    The difference in this case is that I'm adding a bit of a twist to the usual format. Instead of every character being available to anyone, each character that isn't being played will be considered a "loaner". Meaning, if you want to play a specific character who isn't a hero or a main villain, you have to wait for that character to be established by the hero player. They get to introduce their own villains, and the only ones available for play will be the main baddies. Lex Luthor, Red Skull, Joker, Magneto, anyone who fits the bill of "main antagonist". Everyone else is off-limits for everyone except the hero players, who can reinvent their rogues gallery to go along with their concepts unless they give out special permission otherwise.

    This is to ensure a seamless process. We're building a world, here, and more often than not there are things that inhibit players by only being able to build up a single character - when those characters need mythologies to become who they are. There's no use in waiting around for other players to build your world for you. Plus, we're always short on villains in each game as it is. Why not use that as something that adds to the experience? Let's really get our own stab at these characters - and all that encompass them.

    Premise of RPG: I came up with concept after concept, but the truth is, JB's backstory is simple and straightforward enough...

    What will this RPG bring to the RPG forums? (please write two complete sentences): One Universe has always been a concept we've excelled at. Nobody does combined Marvel and DC Universes like the Basement, and the most intriguing game to utilize that concept, in my opinion, was UOU. It's one of the few RPG's I would kill to see running again, and I think it can offer alot as the main One Universe outlet in this new resurgence.

    Title Of The RPG You Would Like To Propose: Ultimate One Universe: Genesis (title subject to change)

    I... I don't want to do it and I may ****ing regret it (I know I will) but I have an idea that mixes a few of my favorite characters and genres together to do something... so... I am in.

    So that's five committed.

    Well, four. Byrd keeps changing his mind on me every five seconds. :cmad:

    But regardless. Provided nobody drops out, I think it's safe to say an OOC thread will appear over the weekend.

    Is this Marvel/DC only? Or are we including the smaller publishers as well?

    It's okay, he still hasn't answered my PM and I'm pretty sure he blocked me on Facebook. Moral of the story: never trust Batman. :p
