DC Rebirth



  • Decided to post this in response to the other DC thread that's formed. I've been working with someone on a DC game that plays off of Flashpoint. We're not quite ready for a full on open but we might be able to start taking on players in a day or two.

    In response to the other thread, we aren't a Legion of Superheroes game and don't have anything specifically set up for them but there's also nothing stopping a group of players from creating Legion characters and doing Legion RP. I'd be fine with even creating a Legion specific play area/grid.

    I'll leave our working ad below. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll let you know when we're at a point where players can come take a look.

    Flashpoint changed everything. Realities were created, merged, and destroyed. Hoping to put it all right again The Flash tried to restore reality to what it once was. He failed. Things were similar but not the same. Familiar heroes and villains were returned but in newer, younger, incarnations. Histories and relationships were changed but it didn't stop there. Ripples of the Flashpoint would continue to be felt throughout this new universe. People would be reborn manifesting as versions of themselves ripped from other realities and timelines. Welcome to DC Rebirth MUX where anything is possible.

    DC Rebirth is a game based on DC Comics using the New 52 timeline as our base. From there we add the potential for Elseworlds characters pulled in from their native realities into this one. Our goal is to create an easily accessible game with a continuity to build upon (New 52) that also allows for players to play whatever version of a character they want. It's a game where realities collide, where familiar heroes are often replaced with strange and unusual versions of their classic selves.

    We offer a streamlined character generation system using the DC Heroes RPG as our backbone and the Comic Vine website as a means of minimizing tedious data entry for character backstories. We offer a number of "mega" grids (Metropolis, NYC, and Gotham) and a number of minor grids (Oa, Themyscira, Atlantis), as well as the option to add RP spots on the fly. While we offer a +dice system for conflict resolution we also allow and encourage consent based RP using your +sheets as a guide for your character's abilities and limits.



  • Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.





  • I will definitely give this game a looksee!



  • I especially love the idea of using a preexisting wiki for the character stats. So much less work for the players. Well done!


  • Pitcrew

    Obviously I am going to have to review my New 52 knowledge!



  • Definitely interested.

    P.S. Please limit alts, especially for the first couple weeks.


  • Pitcrew

    @Tempest Surely you jest. One dude totally needs to play Batman, Aquaman and Green Arrow!


  • Pitcrew

    @Royal

    Continuity being what it is there is probably one Earth where that is actually a thing.



  • Thought I'd post an update. Things are going pretty well. I think we're about ready to start letting people in. I have a few people over testing out c-gen looking for any obvious bugs. News files are all up. The only big thing left is a butt load of data entry for the wiki in regards to the DC Heroes RPG. I figure that can wait till after we open, however.

    So, I work Wednesday but might start letting people over on Thursday. That's my plan as of right now.

    Oh, and I'm thinking of implementing a 7 or 14 day wait on second alts just to be sure all the choice characters aren't taken.



  • @ZombieGenesis commenting so I get pinged when it opens



  • Ditto here. Please drop me a message when you get things ready for players. :)


  • Pitcrew

    In case it wasn't obvious, hell yes, me too.


  • Admin

    I might take a look as well. Not sure which DC character appeals to me at the moment but I'll take a look at the roster.



  • I was unfortunately not able to do the testing I was hoping I'd be able to do yesterday on the game. I spent most of the day in the ER and dentists office after being assaulted by my next door neighbor. Today I'm at work but tomorrow I should be able to fully test the character generation system. Then, depending on how long it takes to find and fix any bugs, I'll either be posting the address tomorrow afternoon or Friday morning.

    Thanks!



  • @ZombieGenesis Holy shit, man. Fast and speedy recovery and well-wishes!



  • @ZombieGenesis

    Dude. :( Wishing you a speedy recovery!

    This is... intriguing. I hated the new 52 with the burning passion of a thousand suns. But most of that was not because of the concept itself, but because DC bungled the implementation, couldn't get its act together, chased its best talent away and then hired awful writers like Lobdell, Pfeiffer, Finch and Nocenti to vomit the nineties all over the characters.

    That being said, the idea for the New 52 had merit, if it had been well implemented.

    Like I said, this … intrigues me.

    Oh yes. Yes, it does.

    EDIT: Have a speedy recovery :( that sucks :(



  • I think I have a problem. Been checking MSB every 10 minutes for this thread all morning.

    So ready for a break from WoD.



  • LOL

    I've been spending the morning migrating the DC Rebirth stuff over to a private server. It'll be hosted all by itself with a mediawiki all its own. We'll be using wikidot till the mediawiki is fully up and running but hopefully that won't take too long.

    Still working on some bugs and stuff but soon, I promise. Things have slowed a bit as my pain meds tend to knock me out but it's coming. :)
