I drastically altered my direction halfway through the draft. I like all of my teams but I don't really think that they go together very well. :?

Really like everybody else's teams. I love Erik's Uncanny Avengers and Excalibur teams and Bubba's Adventurers Guild! Plus, HNutz' Once Upon a Time/video game theme is all kinds of awesome!

Samus Aran, Simon Belmont, Carmen Sandiego, Dirk the Daring, Edward Kenway, Fox McCloud, Ganon, Heihachi Mishima, Index Librorum Prohibitorum, Jack series, Kazuya Mishima, Link, Master Hand, Nemesis, Ogre, Pelagia, Quadratus, Ryu Hayabusa, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
War! War has united the various realms of video game. Or, to be more precise, invasion. A long-dormant force has reawakened, discovered a source of unexpected power and began consolidating their power base. Many empires have joined the invaders or been crushed beneath their heels. The surviving heroes have united, preparing to launch an all-out assault againt the invaders, using both magic & technology to exploit a small but vital flaw in their stronghold.

Knowing the dangers of magic and resurrection, the invaders have found a realm without magic, which they use as a prison world. They brainwash and hide the captives away on this world, along with guards to keep an eye on them. Most are well-hidden in Earth and can not be found to be reawakened. Others know who they are but do not want to leave their new life. Others still have found something worth fighting for, become a better person, or simply want to return to their old lives. But, either way, they're willing to fight the invaders.

And the guards, although working with the invaders, certainly have their own hidden agendas (which probably led to them getting "awarded" with this station). The lack of oversight and the feeling of abandonment they all seem to share only adds fuel to this fire.

But the invaders don't know that, as more magic enters the realm, the brainwashing is fading for a select few (most of them were placed into alternate identities that mirror their "real selves" in some aspect, so that they would readily buy into their new life) and objects of power are being drawn into the world.

(So it's like "Fabletown"/"Once Upon A Time" on Earth and "Ready, Player One" in the world of video game, with a little "Neverending Story" thrown in.)


The Earthbound

Image

Image
Image


Samus Aran, Simon Belmont, Dirk the Daring, Edward Kenway, Ryu Hayabusa

The Great Rebellion

Image
Image
Image

Fox McCloud, Index Librorum Prohibitorum, Link

The Evil Empire

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Ganon, Master Hand, Nemesis, Ogre, Pelagia, Quadratus

Mishima Zaibatsu Corp.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Carmen Santiago (more of a free agent), Heihachi Mishima, Jack series, Kazuya Mishima


Samus is a bounty hunter on Earth. But we'd get to see scenes of her in her armor (flashbacks, off world action down the line, etc) at some point.
Simon would be a monster hunter, pretty much like Dean Winchester
Carmen Santiago? Think Sherlock's take on Irene Adler. C.C. Rendozo from Wildcats 3.0. Zoe & Root from Person of Interest. Or, y'know, Carmen Santiago. 8)
As for Dirk the Daring... you remember how, in the cartoon, he could see all of the different options in front of him? Maybe he's got his own limited "Sherlock Scan"or whatnot...
Fox McCloud's my Top Gun, my Luke Skywalker piloting an X-Wing, shooting down the Death Star or Han swooping in at the last minute.
Ganon's tower would be full of artifacts/obstacles from other, familiar games, like the Fire Swords, spikes, deadly fog (which I THOUGHT I could use as my "F" pick), etc.
Imagine the Mishima Zaibatsu Corp. as "Wolfram & Hart" (the evil law firm from Angel) and Heihachi's the current CEO.
Index is basically The Archive (from The Dresden Files), with 103,000 grimores in her head.
Jacks are pretty much T-1000 series Terminators (the Arnold Schwarzenegger model), but Russian.
Kazuya's basically Smallville's Lex Luthor, but with the Devil Gene.
Link's the epic, optimistic hero. Like Luke fighting Darth Vader or Frodo & Sam in LotR.
Master Hand's the source of Ganon's newborn power. Ganon uses him like a puppet on a string... or is it the other way around?
Nemesis (from Resident Evil) is one of Ganon's protectors in his tower. And he carries a giant rocket launcher.
Pelagia and Quadratus are the two Colossi guarding Ganon's tower.
I'd like to give Ryu a backstory with the Mishima Corporation.

I was about to compliment your Guild of Calamitous Intent (mainly b/c of Barry) but since you didn't single out any of my teams, I retract that sentiment. Image

Too late, I feel the sentiment through your words. :lol:

Seriously though, I said that I like everybody's teams! Stop trying to make me feel bad! :x :P

Nope, I'm going to Flashpoint even the positive feeling I had while looking at your post.
By the time I'm done, we'll all have collars, extraneous lines on our outfits and sales bumps.

I think you meant to type pretty, and yes, I am.

Edit: Draco - why the attachments? Isn't it easier to use the {img}{/img} tags?

Not savy in that area despite how hard I have been trying. As a result, Grayson and Nnutz help me out in this regard.

Vertical lines can be slimming.
Plus, not everyone needs to be a skinny bitch. Look at Drew Carey - he's downright scary now.
