    The starter will probably run long. Don't feel like you have to keep to that length. There's a lot to establish.

    So while we wait for the next post (HINT HINT @Andraus lol), I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts/ideas about where we should start with our team here- thoughts about what our first "arc" could be, to shamelessly pretend this is a comic book.

    I think the best thing would be outside conflict. Something to force the issue. I know my character will be reluctant about working with others. I don't know how the others would feel. I do think something slightly even heroic to push the image of the Lutherites going around and saving the day would do wonders for Luther's image and ours. Which would in turn take a stab at the heroes and their ivory tower in space.

    Maybe even some villains that were not invited try and replicate our group on their own out of spite. Could lead to some good combat.

    I am working on the post, though I gotta agree with @Geo it would be interesting.

    Or maybe there’s a new band of villains out terrorizing the world. Or a bigger threat than any of them combined. It would definitely be an outside force. I have an idea that may be a little out there, but it could work.

    Well, I'm heavily borrowing from having watched the crossover episodes featuring Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergir featuring Earth X. In the DC Universe, there are 53 Earths and in each one exists a different reality with different versions of the same people. Among the many universes in the DC multiverse, Earth-X is the name given to an Earth where the Nazi organization won World War II and created a worldwide New Reich called The Fatherland. Due to its horrific state, it doesn't have a formal designation, since no sane individual from any other Earth has willingly traveled to this Earth.

    Basically, in the crossover event the Nazi soldiers from Earth X crash and ruin Barry Allen's wedding to Iris West. All the teams join together to stop the invaders from Earth X, including alternate version of Green Arrow, Supergirl, Prometheus, Black Siren (evil Black Canary) and the Nazi army, who plan on taking over the world as they did back in their Earth.

    I was thinking that perhaps we could start off with the assassination of some UN members or important political leaders. They have been killed by arrows and present burn marks, courtesy of Overgirl (the alternate version of Supergirl). There's also been attacks across Europe and plans of a larger invasion. Instead of calling on the Justice League, our merry band of evil-doers is called in to stop them. Since Caitlin encountered them before, she could be familiar with the history behind them and the resistance movement operating on Earth X. And if anyone is up for interdimensional travel, we could even add that in.

    Hey we gotta ease into thing. And you can’t tell me Harley wouldn’t hit the hot tub as soon as she saw it. XD

    But Katherine’s idea is great. Got my wheels spinning..

    I’m sure we could add the hot tub action somewhere. Perhaps Caitlin decides to host a welcoming party for everyone and a few drinks later, people end up in the tub.

    Depends if she can beg, lure or browbeat anyone into a team building activity.

    Harley might be interested, depending on how it's presented :innocent:

    So I was thinking- we got some crazy creative and involved folks in this rp, with lots of ideas, and just because I was the one to start the thread and do the initial organizing, I don’t necessarily feel I should have the right to be the deciding vote or the sole creative force of our storylines.

    Got me thinking.

    Comics have different writers. Batman was written for a few years by Scott Snyder before handing the reigns over to Tom King.

    What if we did similar things with our “arcs”- for instance, let’s say for the sake of expediency, I “Game Master” the first arc (doesn’t have to be me, I’m just throwing myself as an example) and so I’m responsible not just for Bane, but for the plot we get thrown in, NPCS, etc. Once that arc is completed, I would toss GMing/Storytelling duties over to say, Katherine or Geo, who then assumes the plotting and NPCS as well as their own characters for the duration of that arc, and so on and so on, we pass the potato around so everybody gets to tell the kind of story they want in our world, and everybody else gets to react and chose and have agency in the story being presented.

    What say this illustrious gathering?

    Ooooh.

    Oh yes.

    That would be loads of fun, I'll start thinking about my plot arc already and where and what we're going to suffer.

    I mean, cope with.

    I mean, overcome with style and grace with a smile on our face and a song in our hearts (tra-lala-lala!).

    My post is almost done, but just a warning beforehand- I am running on one and a half hours of sleep. If there are any problems with my post, or anything that needs to be changed, please inform me and don't judge too harshly, because my brain is literally running on fumes.

    The New and Improved Parademon has made his appearance.

    Btw, he calls the original Parademon 'Older Brother' because.....well, what else could be his title? He didn't have a name. Rag Doll mentioned that himself xD
