    Question GOTHAM (Sign-Ups ALWAYS Open)



    Premise
    Lifting its setting from the Dark Knight Saga, this roleplay will introduce you abruptly into the chaotic, crime-riddled city of Gotham, less than one year after Bruce Wayne, billionaire orphaned heir to the Wayne Enterprises fortune, returned from an extended overseas "vacation," receiving training from the legendary Head of the Demon, Rā's al Ghūl. Ultimately turning away from the League of Shadows, Wayne chose to don the semblance of his greatest fear: the bat, and combat the organized crime that has dominated Gotham City.

    But even the greatest of heroes cannot escape the inevitable, and in this case that inevitability manifested itself in the Law of Escalation: With near-unstoppable Heroes, come near-unstoppable Villains.


    To put it plainly, this roleplay takes place within the "Dark Knight Saga" timeline after the first appearances of Batman, but before the plots by Scarecrow and Rā's al Ghūl gripped Gotham. Beyond that established setting, the plot of this roleplay is in no way bound to the plot of the Dark Knight Saga - and in fact, I would prefer to see it deviate from that path greatly.

    Character: The Joker
    RP Sample: "How dare you!" Disarray yells, pointing back. "I am not that sexy sexy beast Disarray. He may be a dashing rogue, but I would never dream of being him!"
    My Favorite Batman Storyline: Lessee...I watched a few clips of the 60s TV show, that was fun. But...I remember I was at a friend's house, and I read this one comic that showed Batman's first adventure, and how he teamed up with Commissioner Gordon. I can't remember it's name, but that was my favorite.

    Also this RP is really cool. It's like Percy Jackson. You can be a god's reincarnation and have powers and you're at a school and it's totally radical!

    @Scarlet Flash Sure thing! Reserved.

    Still no one wants to be Batman? Are we going to have a Batmanless Gotham? D:

    *A dark shadow casts across the moon*
    "I am... the BatEban..!"

    Character: Bruce Wayne/The Batman
    RP Sample: Stylo Days: 2D's Day Extract
    2D groans.
    He pulls the clown mask over his head, as a deflector shield against the world, to try and cure the aching in his brain.
    Murdoc and his Tequilas...
    He curses quietly to himself, but not in a particularly vengeful way.
    He hums a few notes of Stylo, the song they are due to be performing later in the day.
    Urf... If him and his new toy don't hurry up, I'm heading to the set without him...
    He mutters shallowly.
    2D can't drive, so this is a very hollow threat.
    He slumped lower into the car seat.
    The car itself was some old thing that Murdoc had insisted be put in the video.
    He didn't really care for such a thing, and he wondered how many others had been slumped like he was.
    This lead 2D to think about what else people could have once done in this car, and that startled him enough to motivate him to sit up.

    My Favorite Batman Storyline: Storyline, eh? Hmm... I am a fan of anything involving the Joker, particularly the Brave and the Bold's, and Arkham Asylum's.
    Not seen my artwork yet? For Shame.

    Character: Huntress / Helena Bertinelli

    RP Sample: "What a dump" Huntress snarled looking at the East End district. "Although it does beat that gala that Nightwing has to attend" Helena could see a group of cars stop. "This seems interesting" Helena watched with keen eyes. She could now see a bunch of guys in suits opening the boot of the cars and picking up guns. "Gala plus guns. Something I should tell Nightwing...now where was that gala" she muttered to herself. "Civic center? Wayne Manor? I guess it could be the Regal Hotel. It doesn't matter, I just want to kick some behind"

    Helena shot out a grapple rope via a grapple gun. "Hey lover....care for some dancing. We have a little mob running around with guns" she smiled while talking on a closed circuit radio transmission to her ally.

    @Scarlet Flash Accepted! Just remember Nightwing isn't a controllable NPC (beyond occasional, brief appearances) since he's also a playable character.

    So do characters necessarily need to follow their characterizations from the movies? I was thinking I'd have a hipster marketing student-turned-drug lord who used to do ballet.

    Well, we don't really know the Joker's backstory anyway so you can make it whatever you want - but as far as personality and modus operandi go, I'd prefer no significant changes. After all, if you fundamentally alter the character, why pretend he's still the Joker?

    @Garuru Accepted! Very poignant RP sample, left me wanting more.

    Alright folks, the sign-ups will remain open and the roleplay will begin soon. You will all receive mentions when the Start-Up is posted.
