majingojira: (I Reject Your Reality)

Crosspost from NonscansDaily

Back during the height of the Cassandra Cain debackle, I often found myself saying "I'll make my own continuity! With Blackjack! And Hookers!"

Over 4 years ago, I did just that. From September of 2006 through to today I have been constructing a continuity, taking an extremely divergent path with many classic heroes, but doing my best to remain true to their core where applicable.

Or having fun at the expense of Silver/Bronze age fetish-ization.

it's a bit broader than that--a sort of lower-powered League of Extraordinary Gentlemen-type world of Crossover madness based heavily on the Wold Newton Universe/Family.

Basically, if it had a crossover, it's probably in, but has to keep some semblance of "Reality" (or, at least, is easily portray-able on Television using non-digital effects).

I previewed a few histories for various characters over a year ago, and I wanted to continue it building up to posting this...but then life happened.

Anyway, the main reason I'm posting this (other than shameless self promotion) is to ensure that I retain the spirits of the characters I'm writing up and converting. I make a lot of changes due to the real-time aging (IE: a character first appears around when they're first recorded adventures are printed unless specific dates are given), low powered nature of the setting (20 tons is basically the capper on 2m humanoid life forms in terms of lifting stuff), higher technology (mecha are construction tools) and inter-connectivity of the series involved (nothing happens in a vacuum--unless its in space) demands changes be done to the characters.

But I want to retain their spirit.

The thread is HUGE with about 400 different posts and at this point over 2000 individual entities written up, ranging from A-List heros to Mooks, from rules regarding technological advancement differences between cultures to detailed rules about magical transformations (and how they can hurt if not done a specific way).

And it's FAR from done. I've barely touched TV characters--Law and Order is going to be a rather large post, but is a long ways off currently.

Thankfully it's indexed. But because it's so old and huge, it's hard to police for mistakes (a switch in board servers played hell with the apostrophes and other odd bits of punctuation), so for that I apologize.

But, anyway, I'd like you all to have a look--so you can double check I'm not doing anything to...offensive to your favorite characters.

Have a look.

Her Grandpa is The Sheriff from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Really.  After Devilman, I may post this short series.

"which are, quite honestly, the best Cinematic implement I've seen in an RPG."

Have you seen the Hero Points system in Mutants and Masterminds? I think that's another good one for encouraging dramatic play.

I look at that chainsaw and think "Someone is going to get fucked. Up."
