WVProgressive Posted March 27, 2022 Share Posted March 27, 2022 (edited) Hey there, True Believers! Very recently @Fbarbarossalaunched a Marvel NYC rp, which didn't take off. Nonetheless, I was very intrigued by the idea of an rp wherein players would take control of the various Marvel Heroes, and Villains that call the Big Apple home. Because of this, @Fbarbarossa, and I have decided to reboot the rp, and run it together as co-dms. It’ll play like my previous Batman, and Star Wars (Which I am still running) rps, 5 events a turn, episodic writeup format, and the ability to recruit more characters to your faction. Admittedly I’m more of a DC fan than a Marvel fan, so if you have any questions in that regard, bring them up to Barb, he’s the expert between the two of us. If you have any other questions about the rp, you can ask either of us, and we’ll clear that up for you as best we can. Should they choose to participate, @Richard and @Willthescout7will be allowed to retain control of The Kingdom, and Daredevil, since they joined the original RP.
