We have come so far together. However, before we reach the end of our journey, we should take one last look back. Back at a time 40 years ago, in the golden age of heroes and villains. A time when the Old-Timers were once Newbies themselves, most of them confused and still working out the kinks of being heroes. A time when, just like now, the fate of the world was at risk.
The small city of Brantwood, Michigan may seem like a quiet little obscure place at first, however it is better known (and famous) for its unofficial name: The City of Heroes. The name is as implied, for it is considered to host the highest concentration of supers in America. Many beings of various special skills and talents inhabit this city, either protecting its citizens or exploiting them for personal profit.
However, there has recently been an “awakening” in the city. A new villain has arrived from seemingly nowhere, with an “eccentric”(many would say “insane”) personality and a loud wardrobe. And despite his obnoxious nature, his intents are as ambitious as they are sinister. He plans to assemble an alliance of the city’s most cutthroat supervillains, and seize control over the entire city with their meticulously calculated conquest. It will take the combined efforts of all of The City of Heroes’ heroes to stop them, but that it only if they can settle their own differences first…
(So, allow me to clarify some things. First of all, this is intended to be a Majestic League Reboot, not a 2059 prequel. However I chose not to put it under the “Majestic League” branding due to the associated memories. Also, this is not a Hard reboot. This RP still exists in the same Mctoran-Verse as the original Majestic league, but in an alternate universe in The Multiverse. It takes place in the same continuity as “Arena Battle II”, my reboot of Arena Battle, and is a sequel to that RP.
One of the biggest reasons for me to do this is not only to look back at how far I have come as a GM in the past ear, but also to show that I really have learned from past experiences and mistakes, and apply that knowledge to similar circumstances I may encounter.
I wanted to first finish the Cataclysm RP before I started working on other projects, however, I also promised that I would start the Majestic League reboot by October, its one-year anniversary. With that being said I still intend to run both of these RPs at once, and this one shall begin sometime before the 10th of October. Since this is a reboot, it of course does not have to follow the exact same plot as the original and I do not expect it to. So there shall be more freedom in this plot unlike most of my other RPs. But I still expect you to respect the lore and context of the larger Multiverse which this RP’s universe in)
Respect and obey The GM
I am the GM of this RP. I run the RP and decide its ultimate outcome. I could promote someone to co-GM and just as easily fire them, or shut down the whole RP on a whim.
I, like all GMs, wield the same power and authority of site Moderators, and I expect to be treated and respected like a moderator. So know my power, and consider what I am capable of before committing any misconduct.
No OP or Ridiculously powerful characters.
While the characters themselves may be very powerful beings in general, I will not allow a character that is blatantly unfairly more powerful than most other characters (except for my own of course). Be creative, but no OP characters. you don’t need them to be creative or unique. I’m sure there are plenty of ideas to choose from up there in that brain of yours. Just create something that you’ll have fun with, but not at the expense of other players’ enjoyment.
No Autohitting, Autododging, No-Selling or Metagaming.
This speaks for itself.
Follow Basic Common Logic.
Just because I may not include everything that is/isn’t allowed in the RP, it doesn’t mean that you should exploit the loopholes. I am not stupid. So if I don’t say “don’t control characters that don’t belong to you without permission”, it doesn’t mean that you can. Do what you think is morally right, respectful and within the proper boundaries.
This rule is the most obvious and self-explanatory one.
Alignment: (Hero, villain or other)
Affiliation(s): (Basically, What teams or organizations is your character part of, or has been part of in the past?)
