    Hello!
    We’d like to welcome old and new players to Season IV of the DC Universe RPG.
    A World of Heroes!
    In a moment of nostalgia we’d just like to say that this RPG has gone through three seasons, and a little over one year.
    Hopefully this season will exceed all expectations, but that depends on you as players.DC in the last year has made great leaps and bounds in storylines, now it’s your turn as players to do the same.
    Have fun!


    This RPG is based off of post-Crisis on Infinite Earths and pre-Infinite Crisis.
    The game play is similar to the previous three Seasons of The "World of Heroes" DC RPG and the "Heroes vs. Villains: Marvel" RPG Season IV in the Marvel Comics Board.

    If you want to take part in this, just fill in the application at the bottom of this post and we'll put your name and character on the first post here. First come, first serve.




    GAMEMASTERS



    RULES

    • You can choose to be any superhero or supervillain in the DC Universe, as long as they:

    Are to be established on Earth, as in, if Lobo is to be involved, he has to reside in a DCU Earth city...

    Are NOT deities, gods, or people such as Shazam the Wizard. People like Superman and Captain Marvel are okay, though...

    Are true to the personality and abilities of the character, such as NO Pre-Crisis Superman, no moving planets, sneezing away the Milky Way, no amnesia kiss... EVERYTHING is set POST-Crisis, and Post-Zero Hour, in the current continuity of the character you are/wish to play/playing.

    • You can reside in any city in the DC Universe; anywhere is fine, as long as it's on Earth. YOU CAN NOW ALSO TRAVEL OFF-PLANET...

    • This is a working environment, so you can travel to different places using your powers or vehicles. Don't miraculously pop up unless you're a teleporter or such.

    • Don't do anything RANDOM like chopping off board user's heads or what not, unless your a villain chopping off inanimate victims heads, then whatever, go with it, as long as it's not technically RANDOM.
      Don't be killing people without reason.
      Don't randomly kill NPC's.

    • You know your weaknesses and strengths, what you can do or can't. Black Canary will lose against Superman one on one, but may be able to use her allies to help her out or she can run away. (HA! Yeah ri-ght)

    • You should have a ‘home base of some sort, at least in the beginning when you’re not traveling...

    • Don’t kill a PC unless you have a plan to bring them back.
      Don’t kill your character when you quit the RPG, this rob's a person from playing that character.

    • If there is a problem between you and another player,
      or if you have question's please talk to one of the Gamemasters The list of Game masters is at the top of this post.

    • There should be MINIMAL cussing and swearing in posts.
      There will be NO By-passing the censors. This is a Hype rule, and NO exceptions will be made for the RPG.

    • No obscene topics!

    What to do in the RPG-

    • Act like your character; ASSUME their traits and personality...

    • You can form super villain gang’s superhero teams, alliances, the works.

    • There can be a number of stories (or arcs) going on at once, using different people.

    • There are endless places to go and endless things to do: ENDLESS possibilities so get creative...


    People who disobey these rules, some more major than the others, will get BOOTED a la DEW K. MOSI. As she said about the first thread...

    Screen Name: Johnny Blaze

    Character you would like to play: Mirror Master (Evan McCulloch)

    Powers: Evan is just a regular Scotsman, but is a skilled hitman with training in hand-to-hand fighting. The government gave him the weapons and identity of the first Mirror Master, Sam Scudder, and tried to use him as an agent. He eventually turned on them and set out on his own, eventually joining the Rogues. McCulloch can travel through any reflective surfaces using his mirror technology and can trap people into other dimensions, some worse than Hell. He has been shown to be able to interact physically with people through their reflections (slitting the reflection’s throat is mirrored by the real person), he can turn people to glass with his gun, create life like illusions and copies of himself, and has a variety of other mirror related gadgets and weapons at his disposal.

    Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): The Rogues

    Three reasons why you have chosen that character: The Mirror Master is my favorite Rogue, just beating out Cold. I’ve wanted to play a Rogue for a while; there different than other rogue galleries in that they’re more of a family, and I like that aspect of them. Mirror Master’s skills and devices make him a deadly opponent for anyone to take on, and it’s about time the Flash’s Rogues started getting some more respect in this RPG.

    Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: I bring experience in RPing, having played in RPGs on the Hype and having played D&D for many years prior. I’ll be adding another great villain to the mix, who will be a foil for all the heroes to worry about, not just Flash.

    Color and font you plan on using for your characters speech (Might not be applicable but it makes the roster pretty): Aye, this one'll work. Dark Orange, bold, and Comic Sans MS. It's a good combo, don't ye think?

    How many times do you intend on posting A DAY: As many as I can or is needed, life permitting.

    DC RPG Season IV Application:

    Screen Name: Keyser Soze

    Character you would like to play: The Joker

    Powers:
    The Joker has no superpowers. However, he has various comically-disguised weapons at his disposal, the most deadly being Joker Venom, a fatal poison - often in the form of laughing gas - that leaves grins on the victim's faces.

    Group your character is aligned with (if applicable):
    The Joker is not a member of any groups. However, he has been known to loosely align himself with other villains when necessary. The closest thing he has to a partner is Harley Quinn. And on that note, I have been using Harley as an NPC. If anybody wants to join as her, I'd be happy to work with you.

    Three reasons why you have chosen that character:
    1. The Joker is not only my favourite DC villain, but also my favourite comic book character.

    2. I have now been playing as The Joker for two seasons. I feel comfortable with the character.

    3. He's The frickin' Joker! If I dropped him for a second, he'd be snapped up by another player!

    Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG:
    I now have a good deal of role-playing experience, having played in this RPG for two seasons, the Marvel RPG for four seasons (over a year), and various other RPGS, including the recently-started One Universe RPG. I also feel that I am skilled at giving depth and nuance to villains.

    How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG:
    At least once. But of course, if I'm involved in a fight, I could post 5, 10 times in a day. However much is necessary.

    Color and font you plan on using for your characters speech (Might not be applicable but it makes the roster pretty):
    I use Dark Orchid for my font colour. It looks like this.

    How did you find out about this game, Recruitment thread/word of post/seeing the RPG OOC/IC thread?
    I was already established in the Marvel RPG when I was contacted through PM about taking part in the DC RPG. I briefly toyed with the idea of joining as Jim Gordon or Ra's al Ghul, but when The Joker was freed up by Spike, I jumped at the chance to play The Clown Prince Of Crime.

    Character you would like to play: Batman

    Powers: None, except for his olympian physice' (I butchered that word), his advanced gadgets, his stratagic mind, and the fact that he's just about as crazy as a fox.

    Group your character is aligned with (if applicable): The Justice League...sort of.

    Three reasons why you have chosen that character: First, he's f**king BATMAN. Second, I've portrayed myself as him for so long, I can idenitfy with him. Thirdly, I got lots of neat ideas to do as him.

    Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: I fancy myself as a decent writer, so you can expect quality there. Also...uh...I'm damn sexy. Yes.

    How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: Depending on how the arc is going, at least once a day.

    Color and font you plan on using for your characters speech (Might not be applicable but it makes the roster pretty): Franklin Gothic Medium for Bruce Wayne. Franklin Gothic Medium bold for Batman.

    Hey guys, something I noticed. When Tropico stopped playing, Superboy just kind of disapeared. Same thing happened with our Azrael. We should make it a rule that if the player disapeares and the character made any interaction with another character, then that other character should use the character as an NPC until he/she can think of a way bto write that character out.

    Dude, even a straight guy can tell if another guy is sexy. It's not that bthey find a sexy man atractive. But they can tell that said man is what would be considered to be "sexy".


    EDIT: Wow. Things got really random really fast. Sorry 'bout that.

    Heh, glad someone is happy. :D

    Actually, it was Harl who was playing Superboy. And he got rid of him before he left, which would be the reason he disappeared (went back into the time stream).
    Anyway, all that aside, I do agree with you about the NPC thing. :D

    Actually, we will have a Deadshot in the RPG this season. :up:
    Hopefully, he'll sign up soon. :mad:

    I asked this but didn't get a response, so here's my second try.

    I'm not sure if i will hang on to Red X for long next season would it be ok if did a short arc as him while playing another character?

    So I play as Red X for a short time, while playing as the other character. Finish as Red X then continue with my other character?

    Simular to what Spike did with luthor and parasite

    Write two complete sentences using proper English grammar explaining what you think you can bring to the RPG: I think that I'm a pretty good writer. Also I'm bringing an intresting villain and make him not just a threat to Batman but also to many other DC characters.

    How many times do you intend on posting a DAY IN the RPG: At least once.

    Color and font you plan on using for your characters speech (Might not be applicable but it makes the roster pretty): With normal speech I just make it this brown. When somebody is affected with fear gas I make it iMpaCT and screw up the letters.

    How did you find out about this game, Recruitment thread/word of post/seeing the RPG OOC/IC thread? The Red X pm'ed me

    Douple-dipping the character, eh? No harm in it, I mean, hell, I'm one to talk! :D

    Okay, just so you know, Watchman. In the RPG, Scarecrow died, became a fear demon, and then became human again, so he'd be pretty pissed about that.
