Looking for dedicated writers interested in helping an almost brand-new freeform supers game/fiction board get off the ground! Please take a few minutes and check us out. Yes, there's not much there right now, but that's where you come in. Help us set the tone, establish the protagonists, and create some alt-history!



Cheers,
K64

Maybe wait until you've got something on there for us to see before inviting us to see it. :D

Well, you actually have to click on a link or two to see that there is discussion on the setting and on the current story lines... and as I said just up the topic a bit "Yes, there's not much there right now, but that's where you come in." This isn't a finished setting ready for people to just drop in and start playing. If you want that, this is obviously not the place for you.

But if anyone is interested in helping to build the world as it begins, then swing on by, register, and sound off! :)

I'm not trying to be an arse, but you don't have a setting, you have the idea that there should be a setting.... That's a setting in the same way me giving you a blank pad of lined paper is a novel. :D

You don't even have a stated goal for this setting, or even as much as a concept for the universe, or the type of comics you intend to emulate.

So here, let me show you what I think you are trying to do, as done by people who have got it mostly right. This http://angel-fallsda.deviantart.com/ is Angel Falls, a shared world superhero roleplaying universe, with no specific system, based on a combination of art, narrative & chat-room based roleplaying. Take a look at all the work they did before they opened it up to other players.

Sure it gets a little porny at times & that's to be expected, after all this is the internet & rule 34 of the internet is still in play. Its also pretty shallow, but that too is to be expected.
