Bridgebase City is your home. Across the years it has only gotten worse when it comes to crime and disarray. But in recent history, the number of vigilantes protecting the city has slowly risen as well. You are part of a handful of the most prominent capes in the city, respecting each other’s ability enough to form a team. Some to work together. Some to train others. Some to keep others out of trouble.
The small group that comprises this team will have a backstory/history together that we will weave as the story begins. Most importantly, you are only just returning to fighting together as some members left after the death of a prominent member 2 months ago. Some of you are still grieving, but with threats like the major gangs and corporations of the city, you have no choice but to get back to work.
Information: This story will be inspired by Batman comics and other dark sorts. It will have the team or family going on various adventures and solving mysteries together or alone.
Characters should be inspired by characters of Gotham City or at least fit the tone. This will mostly focus on skilled human vigilantes similar to Batman and Green Arrow, but some powered/supernatural characters may be allowed if they are unique and fit the tone well (such as Outsiders members, Metamorpho, Deadman, etc.). Only a couple powered characters will be allowed but I would like at least one.
The point will be to have a diverse group of characters so any way you can make your character more three-dimensional and unique as a person will make them better for the story (such as unique personality/physical traits/abilities/ages especially/fears/histories/etc.).
Include in your profile any areas where you can give leeway on (for ex. if I think this character is perfect, but would fit if slightly older or something). Just if there are any areas you’re open to ideas on.
Tone: Will be very dark and realistic if possible. Plots and threats will stem from a story like Dark Knight Returns rather than from Justice League.
Story: Writers are encouraged to message each other and plan/work together on plot. Written in 3rd person in the past tense.
Char. History: In your profile, include your character’s origins to a point and please include mentions of other members of the group to be decided on later (for ex. Jason learned that his best friend was also a vigilante and part of the famous team downtown. Or Barbara posed as a famous vigilante and fought the criminals as them to save her father). Also try to think of unique ways your character can be part of the team besides the usual (For ex. Oracle/technical expert at base; or medic; it doesn’t have to be your permanent role)
Battle System: Is rather simple. Described here: http://goo.gl/FnsAZD
Cards: Only one character of each Nature and likely also Strength will be accepted.
