New titans: The lost days

Post by redeagle321 on 1/9/2012, 9:14 pm

This is a project I've collaborated with a lot of you all over for quite some time now, and I finally have the distinguished privelage of presenting it to you all!

Well all have the fondest memories of Abby's rp, the one that kicked off an epic saga for all of us. But, what if, we got to do a little more, give the team another chapter? Or a few? That, ladies and gentlemen, is why we're here!

Synopsis: Set in the original New titans' storyline, we keep our heroes the same, but everyone gets to bring in a villain or new challenge for our heroes to work together against! Be as silly or as serious as you like, it's all about having fun! I figure we devote about a thread or so to everyone's obstactles, more or less if needed.
I figure the timeframe maybe only just before the EQ generator/Agent Smith part

And hey, like I said, just have fun with it!

List any questions, comments, or concerns below, and wether or not you'd like to join!

Not entirely sure how you mean it, but sure, do whatever you would as if it were any other RP. This is all about having fun!

Any particular reason why it's named after the Red Hood title? Is Jason gonna make a guest appearance?

Nah it just seemed like the most fitting comic related title out there- everything else sounded too corny.

Seeing as how only one person has confirmed that they're down to join, am I to assume that this is a dead idea...?

Possibly, but of the five of us that were in the original only abby has given me some kind of confirmation that she wants to join- neither you, Karms or Mercy have given me a yes or no yet.

unless your earlier post was, in fact, a yes and I misinterpreted it o_O

I thought I already confirmed to you personally that I was joining. I also thought Abby was hosting it and you were just asking for her. Anyway, I was waiting for more information to come out before deciding who I could play as since I don't ever want to touch Malice again.

I never really had much of a place in the old RPs. But perhaps joining this one would allow me to establish some sort of foothold in our personal canon that I didn't have before.

Still don't know who I'd use. Possibly Samuel.

Well I didn't know if you changed your mind, since I didn't see anything here on the interest check. sorry >_<

And of course bloody, you can use Sully or Samuel or whoever you like, glad that you want to join!

But as for more information, I suppose I can provide that also;

I take it by now we all can guess at the who and when- set during Ivy's team of titans, several years after the original titans. The focus will be our heroes/ villains, 99.9% of which will probably be OCs.

As for gameplay, I was hoping each of us could come up with a one- shot villain to expand on or characters' stories, show them all working as a team and and give them a good workout against our new baddies. I figure everybody gets about a thread (Or possibly more or less, all depending on how long they need of course) to enact their various nefairous plans, and once it's all done give the next person a shot. I want to avoid having an over- arching villain/plot, and make it a very casual experience. I figure later we can all cook up some kind of order we could all go in or soemthing with our villains.

Does that sum it up, or do you still have questions?

I'm still deciding on who to use. We should all meet up on the chat box.

Re: New titans: The lost days

What if I wanted to bring Mame in as a Villain?


Now, I have a few concerns and I hope this doesn't start any sort of confrontation because this is not crtitisism. This is me having a few worries and wanting clarification.



It is a bit, worrisome that personal villains are being brought into this RP. This is a thread for everyone, but each person having a chapter, I know that outside members can be involved when it comes to a character and their personal villain but....Well it means we're making someone a main character in a RP that seems it should be for all of us. The problem with giving people temporary Main Character status is it kinda overshadows everyone else until it's their turn. This was a big problem for me in Darkest of Knight. This would be less likely to happen if maybe people did make villains for use in the RP but it was for everyone. Like in the show where they would have an episode have a certain villain and only rarely did that villain only pertain to one character. And it was usually a finale in which that One person Villain was involved.


Being an outsider to all this again, as I came into this forum's RP later than everyone else and didn't have time to establish in-game relationships. I would pretty much be out in the cold on everything. If I brought in Sully, she has no friends and no villains on Earth. If I brought in Samuel. He knows nobody and has no villains in the time period. If I bring in Mame, she's a Gotham villain and wouldn't even leave the city unless she was tagging along with another villain. But even then, she could not beat a meta human let alone a group mainly comprised of them.


I would happily draw designs and make up a common villain for everyone's use but, I am not sure I am comfortable with there being player character arcs.


My only other worry is the lack of plot. I understand that with personal villains involved it would be driven by character plot but once again, it overshadows everyone else until it's their turn. I am sure we could all easily make a cast of villains and just say "They're the Titans. They are going to protect the city" which would be fine and awesome because that would allow everyone to make up the big threat later on as the game progressed. Like I said, I am totally willing to contribute villains, but personally I would get left out a lot. I don't need a main villain since all of my characters are supporting characters, I don't need an arc to develope my character because that's what RPing with everyone is for.


I know this is a lot to read and I am going on and on but I needed some of these worries addressed.

[my apologies for the wait, I've been very busy these past few days.]

@mercy
I'd love to rendevous in the chatbox sometime but between our conflicting schedules and recent events my available time has been minumal as of late. I will TRY to make it on for CB day but I am NOT making any promises that I will be able to.

@mame
You actually make a valid point, I DO remember being on the sidleines throught most of DOK just twiddling my thumbs as everything happened, and would like to avoid that for myself and everyone else involved.

I suppose we can just do this the old fashioned way, everyone make their character and go for it, but as for an over-arching plot, well, I don't see the need for one- Neither Mercy's original RP nor Abby's RP had a definite endgame, they were all developed by our own actions and we all personaly shaped the plot and what that endgame would be as the time went on and our feel for the environment matured. I'd like to try and replicate that more loose and fun style if at all possible.

Does that help, or am I completely missing the mark here...?

You did help very much. I was less thinking of a endgame plot and more just a basic one. The one thing I didn't care for about Ab's RP is everyone seemed to be just idling, making up random stuff to try and liven up the RP. It had no direction, I guess I am just trying to find a motivating factor that will keep whatever characters are involved in the RP off their asses in the Tower.


Just a vague point to the whole thing would be nice to know.

Well on the issue of everyone making things up, I haope to avoid that by having everyone create a villain that brings something to the table and will hopefully keep our boys and girls out in the feild and not just in the tower strumming their lips.

I suppose there could be some central supplier- puppetmaster type person that could bring the villains together and point them at the heroes, if you all think that would be an improvement. I want to avoid re- using slade though, I'd perfer an OC or a more obscure villain if at all possible.

Which I am totally OK with. I mean let's not cast canon villains aside but I dunno. I just want to be able to stick with this i I am going to be apart of it.

Idling is the killer of RPs afterall.

I understand completely. And it's not that I'm trying to discard cannon villains, It's just that durring this time I'm under the understanding Mercy had other plans for Slade, so some other villain should light the torch in order to switch things up- perhaps like a second HIVE or something...?

I do not know how you came to this conclusion. I don't have plans for Slade. Especially not in this verse. I don't even really like Slade.

If you need villains...
I can make villains.
I was thinking about making a team of villains to play for this anyway, but I'm not allowed to join new Role Plays until I get Hub City up and running. It's my self-punishment.

I did have some kids who'd call themselves 'The Greed Team' in mind though. >.>

Chill.


Ok topic change because we don't need this to turn into another passive aggressive argument like in the admin threads. Robin. Mercy.



Mercy has no plans for Slade, Red. So if you wanted to use him I'd have no qualms. Also I don't think it'd be bad to use oc villains, we need more developed ones anyway. So if Dec is willing to write up a group for your use or anybody else has ideas I think it'd be great. Like I said, I wanted to use Mame, but she wouldn't be in Jump or wherever unless she was attached to somebody and I'd be willing to work with you or whoever to figure out something along those lines.


Did you already have some villains in mind Red? Or were you originally looking to us to make our own? Is that a stupid question? I have a feeling like we went over that already @3@

Well I was originally hoping everyone would make at leas one villain so we have like a mean team to oppose our boys 'n girls, but truth be told I'm open and willing to accept ideas- if you guys would perfer, I can cook up something mean and nasty for y'all or I'm open to other avenues.

Tdg, I'm more then willing to accept any and all ideas. I'd love to hear more about this team of yours.

And I apologise mercy, I merely thought you had alternate plans for the character. I have no problem reprising my role as Slade if you all think it would help things and I equally have no problem coming up with a new mastermind, I've been cooking several ideas and considering re-cycling old NG baddies anyways. The only characters I 100% intend to use is a poision controller named Toxic and my hero OC, Zero.

Very Happy <-That smiley needs to be like ten times bigger.
I was figuring they'd be a Five-man band or a Five-bad Band since those a pretty standard.

George Reed AKA Greed: The Leader
Pensive & slow to anger George founded the Greed Team with the singular purpose of being awesome at crime. He loves being awesome and showing other people how awesome he is but is constantly afraid that he'll screw something up and knows full well how fleeting fame and fans can be. Wanted to be a rockstar but once he found out he had powers he decided being a supervillain would be easier.
Powers: Highly-focused Highly-specialized Telekinesis
George can't move anything but currency or precious metals but he make quarters break the sound barrier; Its monetary value has to outweigh its actual weight for him to move it but he doesn't know that, he just attributes it to currency or precious metals, but in plot necessary instances he could move something like an imported sports car or highly valuable gemstone and his powers would be more effective on things like gold coins or silver dollars than pennies. His powers are most effective on high-value paper currency.

Alphonse Cross AKA Al, AKA Headshot: The Lancer
Impulsive impatient a little headstrong and pretty flashy for an assassin Alphonse grew up hearing stories of the legendary assassin Deadshot, how he went up against people like Superman or Batman and still managed to charm his way out of jail, and decided he wanted himself some of that.
Powers: Non-Meta, Talented sniper & marksman
Alphonse & George will frequently butt heads due to the fact that George believes great criminals don't have to kill to get away with it and Alphonse believes that great criminals can get away with killing whomever they want.

Martian Maxwell AKA Megawatt: The Smart Guy
Even out of costume his face is traditionally hidden by thick heavy glasses Martian is a genius of physics. While he doesn't think faster or more complicate than the traditional person he understands things that most people don't bother questioning and aggressively attacks anything he doesn't understand until he does. Little amoral in that he really wants to get a look a George's brain up close & personal.
Powers: Dr. Light-esque Power Suit that allows him to warp matter. He can't open portals or liquify bricks but he can bend street lamp like rubber bands and peel open concrete walls; the warped matter either snaps back to it's original shape, breaks, or fails catastrophically when the effect wears off. Catastrophic failure usually results in the object exploding into dust.

Amanda Schwartz AKA Moonstrike : The Big Guy er-Gal
Amanda loves to kick ass, particularly of those who are physically bigger or stronger than her. She studies several dozen martial arts techniques and though she almost universally writes of the 'spiritual' part of martial arts as 'stupid' relying solely on the more practical aspects of Fist+Face=IWin. Despite this she thinks ninjas and japanese things are awesome, almost to the point of fandom, she is embarrassed about it though.
Powers: Talented martial artist specializing in redirecting an opponent's force to cause themselves injury.

Emily Reed
AKA Envy: The Chick
George's sister. Unflinching in her support of her brother she's the 'heart' of the team. With no actual powers of her own she tags along out of concern for the others. She dislikes the monicker 'Envy' because it implies that she's useless for being average, but doesn't openly share that with anyone but George. Emily is the only member of the team who'll frequently stop to think about something before acting and the only member of the team George will actually allow to change his mind; though he does listen to the others.
Powers: None
Despite having no powers Emily is the only member of the team the others universally respect. George and Alphonse with often defer to her judgement during arguments, Martian values her input on things and will openly debate his view points vs that of the average man with her non-judgmentally, and Amanda, who will frequently act to protect Emily during combat, views the two of them as the only 'normal' people on the team, citing Martian's amorality, Alphonse's ambition, and George's powers.

Actually Slade would be blown to bits by a grenade at this point in the RP unless you plan to go back further down the line with Nightstalker.

Nightstalker is a non- issue in this as far as I'm concerned, the name will never come up. And this can be pre slade blowing up. Or we can just call this non- cannon altogether and say he survived for the sake of having more creative freedom- the guy survived FAR worse in the comics.

And TDG, that's actually a very interesting team you've put together. We can keep them in reserve in case you'd like to join at a later date. Or would you perfer we pick-and-choose?

Though I'd prefer the team go in as a whole, you're welcome to pick and choose. If I decide to join later I can always make more characters; these are wholly for you guys.
