    Hi there! I thought we could chat a bit more about this idea you had before we put up posters for it on a group search thread.

    A few questions:
    • How do these “real world” people find themselves in the Justice League universe?
    • Do all these people become superheroes? Or are they just unaligned people coping with their newfound abilities?
    • How involved do you want the original DC cast to be? Will they be playable characters? NPCs? Background figures? Or will they be entirely absent?
    I feel like I should disclose that I’m not super familiar with the DC universe. Just to put it out there, haha. I also have some thoughts on the questions above, but I wanted to hear yours first :)

    • Thinking it could be random incidents that land them in the DC universe.
    • They could become heroes, anti-heroes (more hero side or villain side up to whoever plays the character), or even villains.
    • Thinking some, like those who might mentor various characters, could be playable while most of the background heroes, thugs, flunkies, victims could be NPC or side PCs.

    Fun! I love the mentoring idea. Are we thinking roughly 2 good, 2 evil, and 2 neutral alignments? I think we’d need some kind of balance. Six is a big group for a roleplay, I personally think, but 2 per alignment feels minimal. They’d probably all start as neutrals.

    Any ideas for the main conflict that’ll drive the plot? I’d figure it’d have something to do with all the random incidents that are landing people in the DC universe.

    Could be Darkseid (somehow) contacts Mister Mxyzptlk and promises him chaotic fun but really intends to use it as an opportunity to spread his influence (as in the 'real world', we'd really have no defense against someone like Darkseid).

    That went right over my head ^^”

    I think it’s a great group idea! I feel like I’d have a tough time getting it right because I’m not very familiar with DC, so I might actually sit out on it — but I’ve seen some people searching for a DC universe roleplay. If you roll up what we’ve talked about into a search thread, I’d happily help bump it!

    Mister Mxyzptlk is such a fun name. He’s the perfect go-to guy for crossing real world with DC universe.

    He'd find it utterly hilarious (though admittedly if someone were very familiar with the DC universe and figured out he had something to do with dumping them there.... it'd be IHD - (Fifth Dimension) Imp Hunting Day.
