May time prove you correct Charles Phipps! :mrgreen:

Please allow me to congratulate you on the continuing allure of HED (almost four years on and we're still at it!) and please do allow me to wish ever contributor who wishes to post here the very best of luck with the individual inspiration! :D

...

So, what comes next for Heroic Earth?

Update for 2012

Because Heroic Earth is an updating universe, I thought I'd share what WOULD have happened should I have published a 3rd edition of the Heroic Earth setting guide. Here's the following updates for the various heroes, locales, and so on.

Nations

* The Red Jaguar has successfully reclaimed rulership of Nestoria, killing the reigning potentate and defeating a PHANTOM army hired by the United Nations to remove him from power. He has now declared a Pan-African relief effort and fully intends to crush against any foe who gets in his way.

* Aquarius II has been chosen from the son of Aquarius and the married subordinate of one of his people, who was educated by George Timons over the past decade as a ward (but not crime fighter). Yes, his name is Arthur Dakkar and he has claimed kingship of Atlantis with the help of an unnamed group of heroes.

* The Red King has been deposed from Genesis Island by the Tomorrow Society, which has set itself up on the island temporarily to help the new government survive. Mass Castle has since been demolished (though it's rebuilding). Rumors attest that the Red King is in numerous other bases, though he was briefly thought killed by Robyn Hood.

* Zulan successfully has begun setting up puppet nations in other realms. It has discovered orihalcon deposits (previously found only in Nestoria and Atlantis) which has made it one of the richest nations on Earth.

* The survivors of Olympiana have founded "New Olympus" on the moon and are attempting to terraform it with magic. The United Nations, so far, does not recognize their sovereignty over it.

* Seventh Heaven was destroyed by General Venom and Divinos has since relocated to the northernmost point of Alaska.

* Otherworld's fairy courts have finally overthrown the Dark Undermaster.

Heroes

* Robyn Hood (a.k.a Robin Hood XVIII or Robin Hood II) is now a member of the Patriots. She has a flirtatious rivalry with a certain french archer on the Tomorrow Society.

* The Patriots have begun an aggressive expansion program where the Patriots have founded satellite branches with equal membership given to all of its leaders. In short, the PCs can be Patriots themselves and hobnob with the others.

It has also opened a training camp on Patriots Island.

* Lamplighter Laws have been formalized into a "Hero Act" which firmly gives government supporting heroes a huge advantage over vigilantes and illegalizes a lot of activities. Unlike Marvel's version, it's actually very ambiguous.

* The Tomorrow Society has relocated due to their refusal to associate with the hero act and are now outlaws in the USA.

* Helios the Sun King has joined the Tomorrow Society despite being still listed as an archvillain.

* The Gene Nation has dissolved into numerous sub-groups. The Zealots who revere the Red King as a god, the Genetic Warriors, and the Inhuman Defense Force.

* The Steel Commando has founded a sub-team called the Iron Corps, a team of Foundation armored heavy-hitters.

* Eugene Timons has been adopted and gone on to become Black Wing III, changing his costume to hide the change. This is actually part of Alexander Timons larger campaign as he's recruited "other" Black Wings to assist his efforts.

* With Serena Mass' help, Frankenstein has bound the spirit of Doctor Frankenstein and become a member of the Tomorrow Society.

* Mordred has joined the Tomorrow Society as well, which has done WONDERS for their reputation.

* Ultimatum and Valkyrie have graduated the Tomorrow Academy. Ultimatum has since left the group to join the Patriots while Valkyrie remains the new team-leader.

Villains

* Battle Czar has conquered a portion of Romania and become dictator of that realm, forming a new communist utopia based on Mithan technology. This is after his exposure as the Red Spider. It's called East Wallachia.

* Dragon Industries has been completely dismantled by the Russian government with the Foundation's help, thanks to an unnamed group of superheroes.

* The Brotherhood of Thieves has been formed as sort of a cat-burglar society which has a classicist 99% motivation (despite its members being quite rich).

* The Secret Society of Assassins has broken away from the Black Hand, being devoted to killing for pay but also possessing a code of honor that the Iron Khan doesn't have.

* Ares has returned to the Earth, once more fostering war and destruction across the Earth along with Pestilence, Commerce, and Thanatos.

* The International Crime League has broken up into several rival factions because, you know, criminals. Ganglord Gorilla has had his brain transplanted into a new hulking human body but has no more control over it.

* General Venom has gone missing, being replaced with a charismatic arms dealer and sociopath Jack Washington III. He's currently CEO of SpartaCorp since Kenneth Kane was forced to flee the country.

* The Dark Undermaster managed to recover the Book of Orkus and used it to forge the Armor of Orkus, which he's used to seize Merlin's lair and become Earth's Supreme Magnus. Merlin is currently missing. A cult has started to him in Ruritania.

* The Elite has been cancelled with minor fanfare with Mighty Man now working for the US government.

* The Aesir has since debuted in their place, being composed of Norse gods.

* The Psychotic Seven is now the Psychotic Five and more likely to disintegrate further.

* The Iron Khan has removed the Black Hand and his section of PHANTOM from the group, splitting it in half.

* Death Mask III is actually directly behind PHANTOM's woes as he believes he'll be able to dominate the world much easier with a smaller support group around him.

Neutral

* The Foundation for World Harmony has since gotten a new director who is completely unprepared for his current responsibilities. He's going to eventually be replaced on the short list by George Timons or Michael Specter.

In the meantime, he's a walking disaster.

* America Force One has been re-introduced, replaced instead with ULTRA Force One, being now the Marines of the Foundation for World Harmony. This is due to the new General Venom being a sociopath with many clones and an almost Overshadow-esque malevolence.

I have a question for Charles:

Of all the stuff in the last three threads, what of it were your favorites?

I know you said that you probably won't bring anything from the threads into a book, but I wanted to see as the originator of the setting what fits best with your vision.

I'd like to call the General Venom one. I have a little plot twist that easily accommodates what you've put up so far.

Here is some of my input on the new developments:

-The Black Sheep continues to hunt The Red King through "interrogating" (read: torture) members of any existing Gene Nation cells he can find.

-While Dragon Industries has been taken apart, due to Battle Czar's take over of his homeland. Dracula is looking to crush the usurper and reclaim his kingdom. Dracula really doesn't like foreigners in general be they Turk or Slavic.

I imagine the Brotherhood of Thieves has some sort of mystical backing. Need to find some deity of thieves......

Did I just see the ears of Hermes and Loge start twitching?

After them, I say! 8)

Update for 2012

Excellent stuff Charles - I'll post a few comments tomorrow and snaffle the Iron Corps and ULTRA Force One to see what I can make of them: The Steel Commando's very own super-special forces unit and an international group of special forces soldiers based on the House of Serpent's vision of the World ...

Oooooh yes, the little grey cells are just starting to simmer. :wink:

Yeah, the Brotherhood of Thieves is also responsible for a lot of the International Crime League's woes.

A little bit more.

* Ares International was bought by SpartaCorp and JWIII was placed in charge of it as part of the governments attempt to make the group "legitimate" and no longer a purveyor of foreign interests.

Cue face palm from Colonel Shepard.

* UNITY with the disintegration of Dragon Industries has allied itself with PHANTOM and become their version of OVERTHROW.

* The Globalist is now The Global Commander and had a brain tumor removed, making him "marginally" more sane.

* Baroness Blade has also taken the Iron Khan's place on the PHANTOM board of directors. So yes, PHANTOM now has Cobra Commander, Destro, and the Baroness.

* Dracula has a desire to kill his son, partially because the Globalist attempted to do the same to him.

* The Exterminators have taken over Project: Icarus, using robots and mind-control nanites. The organization no longer has any government backing that's not unwilling or through bribery since it's a dominionist robot group.

I am not sure why Divinos would move to Barrow, Alaska. There isn't much there except for oils wells and polar bears. I went to college with someone from Barrow. It is the northernmost point in Alaska and is an oil town of about 4200.

It's actually a homage to Thor and Broxton, Oklahoma. One day, the people just turned their heads and there was this big crystalline fortress out their windows.

As Divinos thinks, that's actually growing closer to humanity.

Divinos tends not to interfere in traditional culture. He might have objections to people who do it for pure profit, however.

(Divinos often spends much of his little spare time cleaning up the oceans)
