Alright, so, as usual this is highly experimental and anything and everything could change. Ask or suggest anything you like!

Over the years, many heroes and villains have risen and fallen on HavenStation (and previous sites). Epic storylines have been told, and great evils defeated... but one question remains unanswered....

who would win in a fight?


What if our greatest legends were pitted against each other in the arena... that's right. PVP. It could be completely freeform, with a judge and a little bit of trust determining the outcome, or we could use a few basic rules to make fights works. Yes, it does work. I was introduced to a system called T1 a few years ago, which worked great. Of course, we won't use anything complicated or difficult to learn. Let me know if you want an example mini-fight of how this could play out with simple mechanics.

A second question I want to ask you is the plot. Do you like this idea of a non-canonical smash-bros style idea, or would you rather create new characters? Is a lil' bit of action all you want, or should there be PVE story arcs? So many questions! Answer the poll, and feel free to tell me everything that's wrong with this idea below! Oh, and a name that didn't suck would be great too...

Suggestions: Make this Roleplay take place in some kind of interdimensional afterlife,

Make the story star with original created summoners who summon warriors from other worlds

I like the idea of using past rp characters in a new environment/story. It sounds kinda fresh.

But didn't we already make characters that can literally jump into any RP universe whenever they want?

I already do that lol. But ye Im down. I think the only way to properly do some kind of PvP without the rp dying is with mechanics and a health bar. Someone will need to keep track but thats the best way I see.
I am not brave, I am only just, for fear knows no man's name better than the one called "fearless", but there is no fear in love.

Hunt evil, Kill beasts, Slay darkness, and SURVIVE!

HP Bars? Isn't that like, a little weird for an RP? Sounds like it'd be crossing into Table-Top Territory.

Two roleplayers will never concede in raw story telling PVP, every attack will be dodge, every character will have the grit to keep fighting. Humans are fragile creatures, but roleplay characters are not humans.

Yeah...And I break that completely, as Butler's basically immortal.
