Okay... got the maps up, just need to fill in a few blanks and anyone who is interested in helping me out (ie knows the universes better than I do in filling everything in... the game is almost ready to get off the ground, so i'll be asking people if they'd like to play a PbP game that is going to have mature subjects involved... any character concepts (including villains) are being excepted, i will work with everyone so they can get a character they really want to play in the game. So i hope to hear from people here so i can get this game off the ground!

So if you're reading this, and have some suggestions (no matter what they are) please make them.

Spaketacularverse (Guardians of the Universe & Lantern Corps

Postby American_Patriot » Wed Mar 09, 2011 6:00 pm

Guardians of the Universe:

The Guardians of the Universe is actually a large body of powerful beings that are divided into seven councils that each leads or oversees the activities of one of the Seven Lantern Corps. The most powerful of these seven corps has been the Green Lantern Corps due to the fact that they are so strongly associated with the Emotional Spectrum color that represents Willpower. Each of these councils has seven members, with their most powerful or influential member holding the position to represent their Corps on the grand council that the entire organization takes their name from… the three Lantern Corps that are associated with the negative emotional spectrum are most often at odds with not only those three Lantern Corps whom are associated with the positive emotional spectrum, but with the Green Lantern Corps whom have acted as an intergalactic lawmen for several millennia.

There is an official eighth Guardian, the Guardian of the Black Lantern Corps... this Guardian leads a group of renegade Guardians whom are dedicated to a book of little known prophecies that had been made by the Maltusian scientist Krona, whose forbidden research into the creation caused the actions that saw the physical embodiment of the various elements of the emotional spectrum, prior to his exile. Krona had written The Book of the Black during his incarceration while being tried for his crimes. The Book of the Black held all of the things he had learned about creation and how darkness (the Black) had existed before the Light... and that it would one day rise up and fight against all creation to reclaim the universe. But what the Guardians who created the Black Lantern Corps did not realize, was that Krona had predicted that while the Black would rise to try and destroy the Light, they would always be defeated by the combined power of the entire Emotional Spectrum... and while the Maltusian people would become the self-appointed Guardians of the Universe to atone for the sin committed by Krona, but what following generations did not know was that his experiments had created physical manifestations of the emotional spectrum was his own way of atoning for the sin of creating a device that had allowed him to view the creation of the Universe. Krona refused to tell anyone what had created the universe… or even record what he had seen.

But he wrote a second accord during the time he was being tried that explained WHY he had done what he did… and what he had hoped to discover, and this was the Book of the White. During his last impassioned pleas for leniency he shared with the Judges this text that would spawn the creation of a secret society among the leaders of the Maltusian peoples whom had shaped them into the Guardians of today… and the membership of this secret society has been inherited since the creation of the Seven Guardian Councils. The Guardians of the White Lantern Corps have only produced Power Batteries and Power Rings that they have stockpiled for the prophesied Blackest Night incident.

Krona himself urged the Maltusian judges and government to use him as the bogyman that would spurn their people into action that would transform their culture into what has become the Guardians of the Universe. Krona was publically exiled to the event horizon at the end of time, but what was not revealed to anyone… was the fact that his exile was so he could continue his studies into how to combat the Black and predict when the Blackest Night would occur.

Due to the failed attempt by the Maltusians to use androids as a means to bring order back to the Unvierse, only three generations of their people had wielded the awesome powers of a Lantern Power Ring... until several centuries ago when the scion of the founding family of the Guardians of the Indigo had been able to qualify for a ring to choose her as a viable candidate. Her three centuries as an Indigo Lantern was one of the reasons she had inherited the position as the Guardian of the Indigo Corps when her parent passed away almost three decades ago.

The Oan Culture is divided into three castes; Guardians whom are the leaders of not only the Seven Lantern Corps… but that of the Oan society and culture as a whole. The second Caste is the <> whom act as the bureaucrats whom handle the day-to-day duties of government and logistics of each of the Seven Lantern Corps organizations. The third whom have retained the name Maltusian, whom are just average citizens whom have not taken an active role in the operations of the Seven Lantern Corps. The Oan Caste system for the most part is fluidic, and movement from one caste to another is for the most part easy… But the movement into the Guardian caste has for the most part been static.

While the Seven Lantern Corps have been known to express severe inter-service rivalry and violence against one another, any overt violence is barred from occurring on Oa… the home of the Guardians of the Universe, and birthplace of each of the Seven Official Corps (the Guardians of the Black & Black Lantern Corps were born on the planet Ryut, and the Guardians of the White & White Lantern Corps were created on the planet Maltus). Even with these restrictions on their conduct, the bitter rivalries that exist between members of several of the Lantern Corps has always been quite obvious.

Guardian of the Red Lantern Corps: The Red Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Anger/Rage.
The Guardians of the Red.
The Red Lantern Corps is

Guardian of the Orange Lantern Corps: The Orange Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Greed.
The Guardians of the Orange.
The Orange Lantern Corps is perhaps the smallest of the official Seven Lantern Corps, mainly due to the fact that the influence of the orange emotional spectrum light… that of greed. The Ring Bearers just do not wish to share the power of the Orange Lantern Corps Central Power Battery (which like all of the various power sources is ironically unlimited).

Guardian of the Yellow Lantern Corps: The Yellow Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Fear.
The Guardians of the Yellow.
The Yellow Lantern Corps is the second most well-known and public of the Seven Lantern Corps, but unlike the Green Lantern Corps… The Yellow Lantern Corps are associated with inspiring Fear. The official goal of the Yellow Lantern Corps (like all of the Seven Official Corps) is to establish Order in the Universe… but their goals are very much different than those of their brother and sister corps. The Yellow Lantern Corps is seen as the most authoritarian and relentless of the Seven Corps…

Guardian of the Green Lantern Corps: The Green Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Willpower. The Guardians of the Green had been formed by the Chief Judge whom presided over the trial of Krona, thus the Guardians of the Green had further cemented their position of leadership of the Guardians… even if the power of the Green Light had not proven itself to be the strongest and most stable of the emotional spectrum.
The Guardians of the Green.
The Green Lantern Corps is the most well-known and public of the Seven Lantern Corps due to their existence as intergalactic lawmen.

Guardian of the Blue Lantern Corps: The Blue Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Hope.
The Guardians of the Blue.
The Blue Lantern Corps

Guardian of the Indigo Lantern Corps: The Indigo Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Compassion.
The Guardians of the Indigo are perhaps the most mysterious of the Seven Councils… they play things extremely close and the activities of the Indigo Lantern Corps have occurred well away from the public eye.
The current seven Guardians of the Indigo are led by one of the most mysterious women on Oa, whom had violated longstanding Oan conventions and had wielded an Indigo Lantern Ring for several centuries. Until she had chosen to pursue a career as a Indigo Lantern, no other Oan had actually chosen to wield a Power Ring since the first generation of their founding that had saw the failed Manhunter experiment. But her example has seen others of the lower castes of Oan Society to chosen to attempt to qualify for a position that will allow them to use a Power Ring as a member of one of the Seven Lantern Corps.
The Indigo Lantern Corps is perhaps the most reserved and private of Lantern Corps… since they focus heavily on operating away from the public eye since the Indigo Lanterns prefer to provide compassionate assistance to those in need, be it on a personal or greater level.

Guardian of the Violet Lantern Corps: The Violet Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the emotional spectrum the represents Love.
The Guardians of the Violet were founded by the only female Judge that had tried Krona, and thus had been greatly influenced by her choices in the initial seven Guardians whom founded the Council that would oversee the Violet Lantern Corps... while many believe that the reason that the Violet Lantern Corps has been a female dominated organization when compared to the other Lantern Corps since its creation, this is not entirely the case. The Guardians of the Violet are currently composed of seven women whom have been known for not only their dedication to the ideals of the Guardians of the Violet, but for their physical capabilities and dedication to martial knowledge. Something uncommon among the Oan culture.
The Violet Lantern Corps

Guardian of the Black Lantern Corps: The Black Lantern Corps has been associated with the color of the absence of Light and thus represents Death.
While the Guardians of the Black is an official and illegal organization, they have retained the same organization used by the seven official Guardian councils… and maintain a council that is composed of seven Guardians that is headed by their most powerful and ruthless member. And for almost the entirety of their existence, this has been a member of the family descended from the lab assistant who had been tried alongside Krona… but had been spared the same fate. This ancestor had taken the Book of the Black from their prison cell and disappeared into the populace. And over time his descendants had created a cult that saw the Black as being the most worthy of reverence. The first seven Guardians of the Black had all served on one of the Seven Councils and had slowly been swayed one by one to the mindset of the Cult of the Black. They each learned not only how to create the individual Power Batteries and Power Rings that would be needed by each individual Lantern they planned on creating… But they were able to devote resources to finding a means to create the all-important Central Power Battery that would provide power for their organization.
The Black Lantern Corps is small organization that is seen as a cross between a terrorist organization and death cult by each of the Seven Lantern Corps... and is the one threat that will cause even the most bitter of rivaling Lantern Corps to work together.

Guardian of the White Lantern Corps: The White Lantern Corps is associated with the presence of all the colors of the emotional spectrum and thus represents Life.
The Guardians of the White consists of the head of each of the seven families that are descended from the Seven Judges whom had tried Krona for his illegal experiments and studies and shaped the change of the Maltusian culture into its current incarnation. As one of the seven dies, they are replaced by a member of their family whom had been groomed for their position… and each of the seven families have always been associated with one of the seven councils that their ancestor had founded.

The Legacy of the Mandarin

Mandarin (Temugin Eugene Borjigin EngD/ScD aka "Eugene Khan" aka "DR Owen Xan Eng/ScD"), Costumed Meta-Human Criminal Mastermind (PL14): Temugin Eugene Borjigin was the son of one of the wealthiest men in pre-revolutionary mainland China (whom also claimed to be a direct descendant of Genghis Khan) and an English noblewoman whom was related to the British Monarchy. Unfortunately, both of his parents died shortly after their son's birth on 18 March 1941 due to the chaos of both the Chinese Civil War and the Second Sino-Japanese War. He would be raised by his aunt and uncle whom were embittered against the world thanks to the indignities they had suffered in Mainland China at the hands of the victorious Communist Chinese Party. Every bit of the money he inherited from his parents was confiscated by the victorious Communist Government during Mao Zedong's Fǎn Yòupài Yùndòng (Anti-Rightist Movement). The sixteen year-old young man and his aunt & uncle were driven from the family estate and virtually rendered homeless in 1957.

Despite the hardships, they were able to make their way to Hong Kong were his mother's family had given them sanctuary, and ended up funding his education at the best schools in the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland and the United States as well as providing him with the best tutors whom taught him both martial arts and Chinese philosophies to ensure that he would have a balanced mental and physical abilities.

Temugin Borjigin would attend both Oxford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he attained doctorates in both the physical and social sciences that he would use later in his life to much benefit in understanding alien technology that he would discover in his quest for vengeance.

Hoping to find a means of avenging himself upon the government that had confiscated his estate, rendered him homeless and stripped him of the legacy that his father had left him… Temugin Borjigin, now calling himself the Mandarin, had covertly returned to his homeland in 1966 to explore the dreaded Valley of Spirits… a location where no one had set foot for centuries. There he found the skeleton and starship of Axonn-Karr, an intelligent dragon-like alien from the planet Maklu-4, whom had come to Earth centuries ago and been killed by humans.

During the next six years, the Mandarin reassembled the starship's extraordinarily advanced machinery within an ancient deserted castle that he found within the Valley of Spirits, and studied the Makluan science until he had mastered it. He also learned how to use the ten rings he found within the starship that had unlocked vast reserves within himself that has greatly retarded his aging. The Mandarin then subjugated the villages around the valley, and, through his science, rapidly became a power that not even the Chinese Army could successfully challenge. He next embarked on a long series of attempts to achieve world domination, all of which failed, usually due to the efforts of the first and second Ironman.

Among the Mandarin's earliest schemes was the sabotage and theft of American missiles and spy planes that were built by Stark Industries. To restore public confidence in his workmanship, Anthony Edward 'Tony' Stark I donned his Ironman Mk.III suit of armor and flew to South East Asia to investigate personally. And thus Ironman I quickly became the Mandarin's principal opponent in his plans for world domination. On three occasions in their early confrontations, the Mandarin managed to take Ironman I (or his alter ego Tony Stark) captive, but had failed to kill him. Conversely, Ironman I thwarted the Mandarin's various schemes, but was ultimately unable to bring him to justice.

Over the years the Mandarin would use his use his mastery of advanced alien technologies to establish Borjigin Industrial Conglomerate Group, a major multinational corporate conglomerate that was based initially in Hong Kong, but later relocated to the Principality of Madripoor prior to the turnover of the British crown colony to the Communist Chinese Government. The Borjigin Industrial Conglomerate is composed of an interwoven network of subsidiary corporations that dabbles in all areas of industrial manufacturing, food production and research & development fields.

Over the years the Mandarin had tried desperately to prove that Anthony Edward 'Tony' Stark I was the first Ironman, and the later would work just as hard to prove that Anthony Edward Stark II was the second Ironman... but during the Terminus Invasion the two adversaries put their differences aside to combat the mutual foe. While the Mandarin has allowed the rivalry die with his foe, his own son and daughter have chosen to prove their superiority by dedicating themselves to besting the children of the Second Ironman… Anthony Edward 'Tony' Stark III (the third Ironman and the President & CEO of Stark Enterprises), and Antoinette Edwina 'Toni' Stark (Iron Maiden and the President & CEO Stark Industries).

Daifu (Tengfei Shun Borjigin aka "Owen Khan ScD"), Criminal Meta-Human Mastermind (PL10): Daifu (Tengfei Shun Borjigin aka "Owen Khan ScD") is the son of the powerful meta-human criminal mastermind Mandarin (Temugin Eugene Borjigin EngD/ScD aka "Eugene Khan" aka "DR Owen Xan Eng/ScD"). After his father the Mandarin chose not to continue his rivalry with the children (and grandchildren) of his old foe… Daifu has become the rival of the Ironman III (Anthony Edward 'Tony' Stark III) and the Khan Corporation has since become a major business rival of Stark Enterprises. While the Mandarin does not see this as a continuation of his grudge against the First and Second Ironman, he does see the rivalry as a means of testing and toughing up his children against an honorable foe who can teach them wisdom as much as test their cunning and intellect.

Owen Khan graduated from CalTech (the California Institute of Technology) with several degrees in the science & technology fields, with a strong affinity for artificial intelligence, computer systems and energy weapons. Owen Khan is the President & CEO of Khan Corporation, a conglomerate of subsidiary companies within the Borjigin Industrial Conglomerate Group that is associated with their parent company via a series of cutouts and dummy corporations that provides quite a bit of autonomy for the company. Officially Khan Corporation was founded in Taiwan by the industrialist Eugene Khan in the late-1980s, but moved its headquarters to the American Midwest. The Khan Corporation has a network of heavy industrial factories throughout mainland China, but keeps its most high-tech manufacturing facilities in the United States and Canada (with several factories located in the Russian Federation and Ukrainian Republic).

Unlike Stark Enterprises, the Khan Corporation produces both military and civilian technologies and products… and maintains numerous defense contracts with the United States and other governments around the world. And while Khan Corporation has factories in mainland China, they do not maintain any contracts providing the Chinese Communist Government with high-tech military weapons and equipment. Like his father, Daifu loathes the Chinese Communist Government… and works with him to undermine it and support many underground pro-democracy and pro-capitalist reform groups via the use of non-profit charity groups with anonyms under the table donations.

Nü-Daifu (Jia Xiurong Borjigin aka "Veronica Xan EngD"), Criminal Meta-Human Mastermind (PL10): Nü-Daifu (Jia Xiurong Borjigin aka "Veronica Xan EngD") is the daughter of the powerful meta-human criminal mastermind known as the Mandarin (Temugin Eugene Borjigin EngD/ScD aka "Eugene Khan" aka "DR Owen Xan Eng/ScD"). After her father the Mandarin chose not to continue his rivalry with the children (and grandchildren) of his old foe… Nü-Daifu has become the rival of the Iron Maiden (Antoinette Edwina 'Toni' Stark) and Xan Technologies has since become a major business rival of Stark Industries. While the Mandarin does not see this as a continuation of his grudge against the First and Second Ironman, he does see the rivalry as a means of testing and toughing up his children against an honorable foe who can teach them wisdom as much as test their cunning and intellect. Like her father, Nü-Daifu loathes the Chinese Communist Government… and works with her father to undermine it and support many underground pro-democracy and pro-capitalist reform groups via the use of non-profit charity groups with anonymous under the table donations.

Veronica Xan graduated from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) with several degrees in the science & technology fields with a strong affinity for robotics, miniaturization and clean energy. Veronica Xan is the President & CEO of Xan Technologies, a conglomerate of subsidiary companies of the Borjigin Industrial Conglomerate Group that is associated with their parent company via a series of cutouts and dummy corporations that provides quite a bit of autonomy for the company. Officially the company was founded in Singapore by the eccentric inventor DR Owen Xan EngD/ScD in the late-1980s, but quickly moved its headquarters to the United States silicon valley. Xan Technologies maintains heavy industry factories in mainland China, but has its most high-tech manufacturing facitlies located in the United States can Canada (with several factories located in the Russian Federation and Ukrainian Republic).

Unlike Stark Industries, Xan Technologies produces both military and civilian technologies and products… and maintains numerous defense contracts with the United States and other governments around the world. While Xan Technologies has factories in mainland China, they do not maintain any contracts providing with the Chinese Communist Government with high-tech military weapons and equipment.

The big cities of this universe each have a statue out in their bay... this idea comes from the fact that NYC has the statue of liberty in real life... and Gotham City has the Statue fo justice in the comics.. So i came up with a statue for each of the cities. It took me brainstorming for over a month to come up with the name of the statue located in Metropolis... then it hit me.

New York City: Statue of Liberty
Image

Freedom City: Statue of Freedom (yes it's a bigger version of the statue on the Capitol Building, built by the leading families of Freedom City at the turn of the 20th Century)
Image

Gotham City: Statue of Justice (built by the leading families of Gotham around the same time that the Statue of Freedom was being built...)
Image

Metropolis: Statue of Prosperity (The statue was built by Lex Luhor during his attempt to 'buy' the love of the people of Metropolis prior to the arrival of Superman, out of his own pocket... and thus expanding on just how finiancially invested he is in hating the man of steel)
Image

The Statue of Justice (Gotham City, NJ, USA)
The Statue of Justice was built during the turn of the 20t Century as a gift to the city from the most powerful and influential families of Gotham City.
The reason why the Statue of Justice wears a blindfold, is so that she can’t see just how bad things are in Gotham City.

The Statue of Freedom (Freedom City, DE, USA)
The Statue of Freedom was built during the turn of the 20t Century, as a gift to the city from the most powerful and influential families of Freedom City.

The Statue of Prosperity (Metropolis, MD, USA)
The Statue of Prosperity was built by Lex Luthor as a gift to the people of Metropolis prior to the arrival of Superman (in fact the official opening of the statue occurred on the same day that Superman made his presence known to the world, completely overshadowing the event that was meant to be the crowning achievement upon Luthor's humanitarian efforts to improve the city),
