I was lamenting the other day that we lack a future setting for CVnU...so I decided to make one, lol. Rather than make one area where people go and eventually interest dies and it disappears, I'm going to divide it out like we have the CVnU. The Beyond Universe (CVBU because CVFU seemed like a bad idea for some reason) is not set in stone in that yes its the future but the future is malleable, so I'm by no means saying "this is what happens, deal with it" it's just one of many possible futures. I will intentionally leave much of what has happened to lead to the future murky so we can fill it out as we go.

I will be creating CVBU locations that are future versions of existing popular locations (Gothic City, New York, etc) and I will be leaving Empires up to their owners, if they want to make a future version they certainly can. This is a good opportunity to play an older version of a current character trying to deal with semi-retirement (batman beyond bruce wayne style) or a new character entirely. I also figure that by breaking it into locations people can dive into the sandbox whenever they want and climb back out again for awhile when they feel up to it. I hope to run events in this setting in the future but who knows right?

So there's my announcement, hope people join in, if they don't it will have been a fun exercise in writing locations, lol.

How far in the future were you thinking?

@mth_:

I stole a page from Batman Beyond and jumped 30 years into the future, far enough to let people play old versions of their characters or their descendants.

@arquitenens

Did I miss something?

Wait, 30 years? That's further than I was thinking.

@neon_leon:

If you're wanting a descendant character to be in their 20s just have them born later than right now =).

You're right though, I should move it to closer to 20 years, I was afraid characters wouldn't be old enough though.

Edit: I edited my first post, it's now 24 years. That should still leave old people old and young people young.

Please do.

I'll be updating Jurassic World for it a little but it's not going to have changed a lot.

@orpheus_knightfall:

Well I don't want to do anything huge and reshaping in terms of Empires (and the US is generally considered an Empire). I think perhaps big changes to the US should be discussed with the COE and others.

Naturally, I am against people taking the entirety or even a major part of a continent for themselves considering Prime.

But then again I don't even know if I'll participate so to each their own I guess.

Not that it would really affect me considering this is a separate U, but that seems kind of excessive. What do you need that much land for?

@damien_bonaparte: @jean_knightfall

Yeah I'd shy away from claiming a huge continent all to yourself. I think people would be fine if you took a region or a country within it since it's non-canon but I really don't want the CVbU to be just a series of empires without claims.

@jean_knightfall: What? Why not? Asia could be so much fun!

Just remembered I actually have characters who would have a dessert nation like thing in Asia. But I never got around to it so it doesn't matter.

@damien_bonaparte: You were around for Prime?

I feel like I've come across such references several times now, but in Prime I didn't pay attention to anything outside of my little small-time bubble so I never knew who was who and who was around.

@lunahawk: I was going to make a Post apocalyptic CV and have it where the mutants had a war against the world and caused major destruction and a lot of death, all fallowed by a plague that took over the meta human genome and kinda made super zombies.

I'm going to try t remake it because as you said "The future is malleable"

@the_drifter_:

Well the CVbU is just one of many possible futures because I don't want to stick anyone now with any sort of 'destiny' feeling. If you are making a post apoc setting I think it would be just fine as another alternative. I'm not sure exactly what you're wanting to do but I certainly don't want to get in your way.

@orpheus_knightfall:

That's why I did a huge revamp on a bunch of my characters. Maybe make someone new? A descendant of someone for example.

Ah I see. Well It's not all got to be done at once, I started with Gothic but I'm going to take some time on the rest. You could start with a home location and work outward.

  • Curve- still doing his thing. Is known by half of Gothic as a has-been, is known by the other half as still a man of great influence.
  • Joey- Has become separated from Zeus. Owns an apartment, runs a gas station. Is boring.
  • B List- Not sure. Either in tatters, or uber successful.
  • Leah- MATRIARCH, because nobody else in that family's going to live to 2040
  • Not sure on any others.

Thinking up some different futures for these guys, to write in this universe.

@curve:

If Joey gets free from Zeus there's a really good chance Sentinel Hawk will try to re-establish their relationship.
