    --- The Story...

    Time has become unhinged.

    All realities and all dimensions are loosely connected, making up a ?chain of reality?. If something should go wrong in one reality, it will eventually create a domino effect and have some sort of impact on the next reality, and so on. Until recently, time had been moving along quite smoothly. But there have been recent events within these realities that have the potential to wreck havoc on all of time.

    There is a group of heroes that will be plucked from their own realities to right the wrongs and ?fix the kinks? in this chain of reality. And you are one of them. Join the fight to save the entire universe from collapsing.

    --- You, The Heroes...

    You will be part of a team of heroes (and villains) who travel to these different realities and dimensions righting the wrongs in the chain of reality. When you complete a mission, you then move on to the next reality to find a new mission. Failing to succeed would cause a domino effect and eventually life as we know it would cease to exist.

    You can play as any, and I do mean ANY, character from ANY franchise (including Star Wars?thanks to LSA?s approval)! Further down the line, we may see original characters. But for the time being, you will play as a character from whatever franchise/universe you?d prefer. You have many movies, cartoons, comics, TV shows, video games (etc.) to choose from. So choose wisely. Limit 2 characters per person...for now. If you feel you need more than that please PM me for approval. (For example, if you were playing Moe, Larry and Curly...where you can?t have one without the others...I may allow it.)

    --- Notes From Your GM...

    1) The team will be considered ?heroes? since they have to save the universe from falling apart. But if you want to play a villainous character (like Darth Vader) on the team, be my guest. It will add some personal conflict and character development to the story.

    2) This is a massive crossover, with many characters to choose from, so have fun with it.

    3) Throughout the story, the team will be jumping to other franchises (like the Matrix, LotR, X-Men, Tomb Raider, etc...) so you will be interacting with other characters from those universes. I don?t think a crossover RPG can get any more ?crossover? than this. ;)

    4) Feel free to PM me with any questions and/or comments.

    5) Follow all the usual rules and TOS on the Boards. Please refer to those threads if you need to be reminded.

    6) Let?s have fun!!

    Name: Roland Deschain

    Alias: None, though must call him "Gunslinger" as that's what he is

    Franchise: Dark Tower Series books by Stephen King

    Weapons: Two revolvers that look almost ancient...his speed at drawing and reloading cannot be seen. It's eerie to behold.

    Appearance: [image=http://www.stephenking.com/DarkTower/gallery/dt32.jpg]


    Bio: Roland is the hero of Stephen King?s Dark Tower series. He is his world?s last-and perhaps greatest-gunslinger. His quest is to find the Dark Tower, the nexus of the time/space continuum. He is trying to prevent its fall from Randall Flagg/Walter O'Dim/Man in Black/Maerlyn.

    [Added this for fun]Personality: He is extremely determined, he will do absolutely anything it takes to get to his goals, even if it means death to him or his friends. Described as a hero and anti-hero at the same time. He can be nice and a little caring at times, but mostly seen as cold and calculating. He is serious most of the time, though his friends (Eddie, Jake, Oy, and Susannah) helped him become a little better at humor.

    Alias (if any): V
    Franchise from which you originate: V for Vendetta
    Weapon(s) of choice: Throwing knives
    Description of Appearance: [image=http://www.latinoreview.com/films_2005/wb/vendetta/images2/vfv1.jpg]
    Short Bio/History: November 5, 1997, London. V rescues a young woman, Evey Hammond, from a gang of police agents - known as "Fingermen" - who are about to rape and kill her as punishment for her attempts to solicit them. After blowing up the now-closed Houses of Parliament, V takes Evey to his secret lair, which he calls "the Shadow Gallery." Evey tells V her life story, describing the nuclear war of the late 1980s and the fascist coup in which her father became a political prisoner.

    The investigation into the bombing is assigned to Eric Finch, an experienced investigator who serves the government out of a love of order rather than political conviction. Through him we meet other figures in the corrupt Party, including the Leader, Adam James Susan, a recluse who is fixated on the police state's computer system, "Fate."

    V next blows up the The Old Bailey, and confronts three Party figures to accuse them of past crimes: Lewis Prothero, the propaganda broadcaster who serves as the "voice of Fate"; Bishop Lilliman, the Party's paedophilic representative in the clergy, who V kills by forcing him at knifepoint to consume a cyanide-laced communion wafer; and Delia Surridge, a seemingly apolitical doctor who had a personal relationship with Finch. Through torture, the destruction of his collection of dolls, and use of hormones V drives Prothero insane before killing the others. Finch's research, partly done with Dr. Surridge's diary, reveals that all three victims were officers at the infamous Larkhill Resettlement Camp, and that over the previous several years, every other staff member from the camp has died, apparently killed by V - the vendetta of the title. V is the only survivor of the camp, and no records exist of his real name. All that is known is that he was subjected to medical experiments in the camp, similar to those of Josef Mengele, which apparently caused V's transformation into a brilliant and obsessive avenger.

    Franchise from which you originate: Zelda (specifically OOT because I know that one best)
    Weapon(s) of choice: Master Sword, Shield, Bow & Arrows, Hookshot
    Description of Appearance: [image=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v215/TonyS37/Link.jpg]
    Short Bio/History: A young boy who thought he was a Kokiri, a race of children who never grow up and live in the woods under the protection of the Great Deku Tree and their Guardian Faeries, was always made fun of for being the "Boy without a fairy", but one day, the Deku Tree saw great potential in him and sent Navi the Fairy to help him. He battled through three complicated dungeons and slew many a vicious beast, and was given the mystical Ocarina of Time by the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda. With the OoT and the Sacred Stones he claimed in the three dungeons, he opened the Door of Time and was granted access to the Master Sword, which cast him into a deep slumber for seven years. When he awoke, Hyrule was ruined, with the King of Thieves, Ganondorf proclaiming himself king of all Hyrule. Link learned from the Sage of Light, Rauru, and the mysterious Shiek, that it was his destiny to use the Master Sword and seal away the great evil king.

    I was given the GM's permission to utilize Link's Time Travel abilities to utilize different items and get into certain areas that the adult characters could not fit through.

    Short Bio/History: (WARNING: LONG)

    A very mysterious "beauty within the beast" figure; it's known that she was born on the colony K-2L--and was the sole survivor of a savage attack by the space pirates as a little girl. She was found by the even more mysterious Chozo race, whom decided to take her to the planet Zebes and train her into a powerful warrior.

    At some point, most likely her teenage years, Samus decided to leave her foster Chozo fathers behind in order to adventure the outside space. She would cross paths with the Galactic Federation, and become a bounty hunter--a profession in which she would eventually rocket at the very top of. Unaware to her, the Chozo are driven extinct by mysterious forces shortly after her departure... (It is probably also here that she crossed paths with Federation commander Adam Malkovich, one of her few known human friends. Unfortunately, Malkovich would die at some point--but he would go on to play a pivotal role in her life years later)

    The basic gist throughout the main games(I'm going to skip spin-offs like Prime and Echoes) is this: the Federation find themselves locked in a bitter rivalry with the space pirates; which takes a nasty turn for the worse when it is discovered that the pirates are harvesting the parasitic power-sucking specues known only as the Metroid, aboard the very planet Samus was raised--plotting to use them to attain galactic domination. The Federation hires Samus to foil the pirates plan; and she is successful, killing the villanous heads: Ridley and the all-powerful Mother Brain.

    But the Metroids were not fully extinct. SR388 is another homeworld of the now-extinct Chozo--and it is where the remaining Metroids lie. After a clean-up military squad fails to return from the planet, the Federation turns to Samus again, and she goes to take on the jellyfish-like creatures herself. Quickly, she learns why the squad never returned--the Metroid have been EVOLVING from their rubber shells, becoming increasingly powerful and nasty. Once again however, the lady in crimson would triumph, killing the Queen and all her offspring... ecept for a harmless newborn that hatches right before her battle-worn visor.

    It is here that Samus' human side is revealed. Instead of killing the hatchling, she decides to take it with her at a Federation space station, to be studied by scientist in hopes of finding a way to use the predatory species for noble means. With all seemingly well, Samus' gunship leaves the station and onto her continuing duties as a paid warrior--

    When a explosion rocks the station. Confused, Samus returns to the stations, only to find all the scientists dead. The hatchling survives--but is in the grasp of a ressurected Ridley, whom after a brief scuffle with the huntress, escapes into the cold space. Just as the station self-destroys, Samus hops into her gunship and follows the tyrant... and finds herself back at Zebes, where the whole mess began. It turns out, the space pirates are back, and use the hatchling to breed them into a group of heartless superwarriors.

    Once again, Samus plows through the planet and it's vast rogues' gallery, until finding herself rematched against the Mother Brain. Not even Samus can stop her this time, and the evil Mother is about to deliver the killing blow--when the hatchling, no longer so small, arrives and sucks the power out of her. The hatchling sinks her claws into Samus' battered armor--this time, to replenish energy instead of taking it. However, Mother Brain regenerates as this happens, and attacks the Metroid with Samus unable to do anything--until it vanishes into a poof of dust... which gathers around the huntress, making her even

    The Pixelpuff Girls

    Like on 007, you have come up with an idea similar to one of mine, except in the case of my project, mine was inspired by the Penny Arcade online comic that reviews games.
    My two favourite game girls explore multimedia on my behalf.

    Name: Lara Croft
    Alias (if any): n/a
    Franchise from which you originate: Tomb Raider (first game)
    Weapon(s) of choice: Twin automatic pistols, Uzi, anything available really.
    Description of Appearance: shorts, clingy top
    Short Bio/History: This incarnation of the British heiress turned archaeologist collected two pieces of the Atlantean Scion, before her player gave it up as a bad job and transferred her to the Pixelpuff Girls.
    Her current assignment is similar to that of Charlie?s Angels, helping their mysterious boss, Yav? to explore video games, films, and to portray his comments on those things.
    Recently, their boss broke agency protocol and sent them after the npc that, how you say?reamed his ass into the ground, in the Everquest MMORPG some years back.

    [image=http://www.geocities.com/acenhunter/maps/pixelpuffgirls.jpg]
    Larger pic - girls drawn manga-style; smaller pic - ingame versions. Note that Debgate is taller than Croft. In EQ, Barbarians are taller than standard humans.

    Name: Debgate
    Alias (if any): Chalass
    Franchise from which you originate: Everquest
    Weapon(s) of choice: Magical shaman spells
    Description of Appearance: the one in the blue and black
    Short Bio/History: Barbarian shaman born in the snowbound city of Halas, Debgate was inducted into the Surefall Paramedics rescue team where she operated as an independent agent who served with distinction and saved many lives.
    She can run at superspeeds, cast flame and freeze spells, ?snare? an opponent to trap them, and fight with any weapon she encounters. Prefers spells.
    Partnered with Croft as a PixelPuff Girl, though largely outclassed by what they encountered.

    Name: Alucard

    Alias: N/A

    Franchise from which you originate: The anime & manga, Hellsing

    Weapon(s) of choice: Two guns, one is a large gun: the modified 454 Casull, made from melting Lancaster Cathedral's silver cross, used with blessed, exploding bullets. Later on, Walter(someone from his reality) brings him a new toy, the Jackal. Using specialized silver ammo with blessed gunpowder and quicksilver, the already insane killing machine gets even more powerful.

    [image=http://images.animanga.nu/fanart/2837/alucard24.jpg]

    [image=http://absoluteanime.com/hellsing/alucard.gif]


    Short Bio/History: Alucard is one of the original vampires, unlike the new breed that has sprung up in England. Alucard's occupation is rather different in that he hunts his own kind. He justifies killing vampires because these vampires he's hunting down are not vampires but just some cheap imitations created by science. He views these beings even lower then humans. He fights for the Hellsing Organization and serves his master, Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing.

    We don't really know who Alucard is, but during the series it does shed some light on who Alucard might be. Some people believe he is Vlad the Impaler who was notorious for impaling his victims on poles.

    Alucard is virtually indestructible. He can get shot to pieces only to regenerate, be stabbed by hundreds of blessed blades, and get shot in the head by silver bullets and still live. Alucard is one vampire not to mess with.

    Misc: 567 years old, 6'3", 185 lbs.

    Note: I'm making Alucard a villain in this one, tweaking it just a bit by saying the events have made him desperate to right it all...in any way possible. Though, maybe a little bit of him...actually wants the destruction of everything...Only time will tell. That ok?

    Name: Arturia (more commonly known as King Arthur)
    Alias (if any): Saber
    Franchise from which you originate: Fate/Stay Night
    Weapon(s) of choice: Excalibur, Invisible Air(an invisible sword), Avalon(the scabbard of Excalibur lost through the ages but returned to its owner)
    Description of Appearance:[image=http://img60.imageshack.us/img60/8379/fate2176zr.jpg]
    Short Bio/History: England's legendary hero King Arthur who's even said to be, "The king who existed, and will resurrect in the future"

    A hero whose legend is known as the role model of knights, but he's also said to have actually existed in history.

    The Arthur of the Fate universe was Female and became a Holy Spirit upon her death. This allowed her to be summoned as a Servant during the Holy Grail wars. She was designated the class of Saber, said to be the most outstanding of the classes. Due to the nature of Avalon, she stopped aging as soon as she came into possesion of Excalibur. She is fueled by a power source known as Mana. Once that is depleted, she becomes unable to fight and, normally, would return to being a Holy Spirit and await to be summoned in the next Grail war. However, due to her being plucked out of her universe it is uncertain if she will forever retain her current mana, if she's being fed still by an outside source, or if she still needs to replenish it via large quantities of food and sleep.

    Short Bio/History: Angelo is a templar in Maella Abbey's templar knights. His duties are to uphold the order of the Goddess, live a sin free life, and protect the Abbot; but he is actually a playboy, a cheat, and a womanizer all rolled into one. He is mocked by other templars as a disgrace for his sinful life, and is especially berated by the commander of the templars, Marcello.

    His family was actually quite wealthy, but his father was a womanizer and a horrible gambler, and when he died, his mansion and possessions were taken to pay off the debt. Angelo had no place to go but to the Abbey, known for caring for orphans and others who had no place else to go.

The Lord of the castle was happy to see such a well-known knight, and the Lord's daughter was even happier, as it were. Launcelot, however, was in love with Queen Guinevere, and did not return the girl's affections. Completely head over heels, the Lord's daughter (whose name was Elaine) sought the aid of a white witch, who gave her a magical ring to make her look like Queen Guinevere, and confuse Launcelot's mind. In his madness, Launcelot married "Queen Guinevere". The next morning, when he realized how he had been tricked, he ran for it. Unknown to him, Elaine bore a child, who was named Galahad. When he grew older, he became the greatest knight of all time, wielding an enchanted sword, and possessed of a holy protection to all forms of magic and evil. He died at the end of the quest for the holy grail.

    Name: Alex Louis Armstrong
    Alias (if any): The Strong Arm Alchemist
    Franchise from which you originate: Full Metal Alchemist
    Weapon(s) of choice: His Magnificent Muscles

    Description of Appearance: [image=http://www.armadaanime.com/fma-cm1-sp6.jpg] [image=http://www.armadaanime.com/fma-pc-008.jpg]

    Short Bio/History: He was born into an elite family of alchemists and has mastered his family's techniques. Members of his family have, in the past, filled the highest military and political positions in the state. A very intimidating man at first sight, Armstrong is actually a softie who frequently weeps, and his sentimentalism prevents him from being promoted. Armstrong was a part of the Ishbal War, but was badly injured and was not redeployed in a combat zone until the Northern Rebellion. He has a strong sense of loyalty towards the late Maes Hughes and after the Lieutenant Colonel's death he assists Roy Mustang in Hughes' place. Armstrong was eventually promoted, to Lieutenant Colonel, and sent to aid Mustang against armies in the north. In the movie "Conqueror of Shamballa" Armstrong is shown to be using his fortune and his alchemy skills in order to help restore Lior. Later in the movie, he initially led the military resistance to the Thule Society's attack on Central. During the Ishbal War, Armstrong received an incomplete philosopher's stone that allowed him to create larger, deadlier stone-spikes, as well as smashing city streets with his (almost) bare hands.

    Name: Envy
    Franchise from which you originate: Full Metal Alchemist

    Short Bio/History: The oldest surviving Homunculus, Envy claims that he has forgotten what he originally looked like, but in truth chose not to revert to that form out of hatred for his "father" - Hohenheim - whom he resembled. He hates all humankind and follows Dante mostly for the opportunity of killing as many people as he can. This is what drives Envy in all that he does--unlike the other Homunculi serving Dante, Envy does not care about the Philosopher's Stone, nor about becoming human. His lust for revenge on his creator, and inflicting pain and suffering on all humans, was the only thing that mattered. His most prominent murder was that of Maes Hughes, whom he killed after taking on the form of his wife Gracia. Envy was also key in imprisoning Greed, against whom he had a long-standing grudge, within the 5th Laboratory./>/>

His personal convictions ultimately put a stop to any career ambitions he might have had when he refused to marry the daughter of a high priest. Auron fell quickly out of favor with the top brass, and the promotion instead went to his friend Wen Kinoc, who would eventually become a maester of Yevon.
    Shortly afterward, Auron was enlisted by a summoner named "Braska" to serve as a guardian on Braska's upcoming pilgrimage to fight Sin. It is likely the two men found common ground over being outcasts of Yevon, as Braska had already disgraced himself in the eyes of the church by marrying a "heathen" Al Bhed woman and having a half-Al Bhed child (Yuna). Auron further found himself drawn to Braska due to his noble character and honest intentions to vanquish Sin for the sake of Spira's people, developing a fierce devotion to Braska and his cause, consistently addressing him with honor, and defending him to any detractors.

    Clinging to life by little other than devotion to his lost comrades, Auron literally drags himself down Mount Gagazet to the Calm Lands, where's he discovered by Rin, who takes him to his travel agency for the evening. During the night, however, Auron leaves, despite his wounds?or, perhaps, in spite of them?continuing his way to Bevelle.[5][6] Just outside the capital city of the Church of Yevon, Auron's strength abandons him and he's discovered by a young Kimahri Ronso. He convinces Kimahri to fulfill his promise to Braska for him, by finding Yuna in Bevelle and taking her to Besaid. He then dies, beginning a new sort of "life" as an unsent. Because he is no longer a living human, but composed of pyreflies, he is able to ride Sin and travel to Jecht's Zanarkand.
    From this day forward, Auron is filled with enmity for the Church of Yevon, and for himself, loathing the title of "legendary guardian" that the people have bestowed upon him. He is consumed with self-reproach for his self-perceived failure of Jecht and Braska, as he didn't stop them from sacrificing themselves, despite being unaware at the time of how needless their noble actions would prove. Auron spends the next decade keeping an eye on Tidus in Dream Zanarkand, though he does not directly raise Tidus after the death of his mother, watching over him from afar instead, serving as a mentor of sorts.
    Eventually, Jecht exerts some measure of control from within Sin and approaches Dream Zanarkand, communicating to Auron that he wants Tidus taken to the Spiran mainland, so that?in that harsher land of uneasy choices?he may have a shot at understanding what life's really all about, as well as stand a chance at defeating Sin for good. Thus, Auron and Tidus make a journey?with Sin as their transportation?to the Spiran mainland, where they will serve as guardians to Braska's daughter, Yuna, on yet another pilgrimage. During this journey, Auron is the seasoned veteran of the group, albeit the one who knows far more than he reveals. He refrains from telling the others the truth about Yevon, knowing they will have to discover it for themselves. No longer an uptight monk, he takes a deeply cynical stance toward the religion and its figureheads. Auron also plays the role of a storyteller, offering Tidus relevant bits of information about his father, Spira, and Yuna's father at key points throughout the game, and it is through Auron that Tidus is finally able to come to terms with his hatred of his father before their reunion.
    His experience and expertise is also something that is remarked upon by many followers of Yevon, and old friends alike. He is addressed with deference by virtually everyone in Spira as "Sir Auron," due to his sta

    sooo... tempting...

    Hmm... this is important... What's the upper limit on power? There's a huge range of it already that could throw balance through the window.

    I agree with LightWarden. How much power can a character have? Are we talking universe-rocking strength, or just your average run of the mill "abilities"?

    Somewhat worried about things myself. I mean in video games they break barrels. In superhero games they break buildings. Some other series destroy planets for the heck of it.

    You'd probably want to cap it at the upper limits of destruction being squad/building level. None of this super nuketacular stuff that ruins it for everyone. That way normal people with extraordinary skills can still stand a chance.

    Also, what's the limit to starting abilities. In video games especially, characters tend to learn better techniques, gain better equipment, and climb the levels. How much should they be able to start with/what levels (beginning/middle/end)? Afterall, Cloud with Ultima Weapon, Omnislash, and the Red, Yellow, and Green Materias equipped won't be quite as much fun for others as he would be for the player.

    Questioning all the technical stuff, eh? That's just like you LightWarden. ;)

    Cap on world-destructing powers - Considering I'm not familiar with all the anime characters that have been posted, I really couldn't tell you where to "cap" your powers. I'd have to agree with both Ptolemy and LightWarden... Try to keep it at "just your average run of the mill abilities" as best you can, and nothing more than "the upper limits of destruction being squad/building level". You don't want to god-mode every battle. It states that in the RPF rules. Use your best judgement.

    Starting abilities for your character - Again, use your best judgement. What "stage" of the character would you most want to play? Would it be more interesting to play the character with just a pistol (or a wooden sword), or do you want to give him machine guns (or a magic sword) instead?

    If it gets too out-of-hand while we're playing, I'll let you know. ;) But I'm confident we'll do fine.

    I'm currently constructing the first few "intro" posts. So, have patience, travelers. It's coming. :)
