Something I proposed on the "Official RPG Ideas Thread" that I thought I'd make its own thread for the sake of seeing just who all might be interested in this idea. I already know one person is, but I wanted to see if anyone else was too.

Restating the premise from the orignal post, the idea is a six man team of Exiles, like in the original series, being sent by the Timebroker to an alternate universe' Wakanda, with the task of unseating its ruler: The Shadow King. In this world, early on in his marriage to Storm, Black Panther was possessed by Amahl Farouk so completely that nothing remains of T'Challa's psyche. Using Wakanda's futuristic technologies, Shadow King enhanced his psychic abilities to new levels, completely dominating Ororo's mind. He then used her powers to seal off Wakanda and it's neighboring nations from the rest of the world in an impenetrable dome of hostile weather, ensuring that his iron-fisted rule would not be challenged.

As Exiles, your mission will be to infiltrate Wakanda, evade the Shadow King's forces and whatever surprises he may have in store for you, free Storm from his control if possible, and most importantly, end Amahl's reign of terror... By whatever means necessary.

The Team.

Consisting of the players' reimaginations of pre-existing Marvel heroes & villains, the team needs to be six men (& women) strong, with various skill sets between them that make them adaptable to whatever situation they may face on their missions. This doesn't necessarily have to be how the line-up can turn out, but optimially, the team should have:

- A leader, someone experienced with being part of at team and strategizing under fire.
- A magic specialist.
- Someone who knows their tech, a hacker, mechanist, inventor, etc.
- A stealth specialist, someone who can get into and out of places without being easily detected.
- Muscle, brawn, someone who can dominate a fight and take damage (i.e. a tank).
- An energy powerhouse, a person we can rely on for fly-by strikes and damage, but not so overpowered that they plow through the mission with ease (essentially, no god-modes or su/stu characters).

Again, this doesn't have to be the set criteria for the team, seeing as this sort of specialization rarely showed up in the initial Exiles series. I should note though, that it would be beneficial for the team to have a telepath on this mission, seeing as they're going up against a psychic heavyweight like the Shadow King and all.

OOC.

Anyhow, that's the primary idea for the moment. Sound like soemthing you guys might be interested in trying out? Again, this is my first time trying my hand at making one of these campaigns (and/or, being a "DM," if you will), so I'm not sure how well this will all work out. I'm willing to hand the reins over to a more experienced person for the finer details of the campaign though, if need be, so there's that. Anyhow, feel free to let me know what you guys think of this idea. I look forward to your feedback.

Iit does sound like it has potential you might find it hard to get off the ground though. Most of us here use original/semi-original characters in our own plots or revisions of plots we liked. But good luck!

If you don't mind having a guy who hasn't done much yet, I could fill the tech guy part and partially fill the energy and telepath roles.

I think it would be better if people got to make their own characters instead of alternate universe versions of an already established character.

@themusicmaniac: Why not blend both ideas?

Have original characters interact with established characters.

@steampunk001:

Im definitely interested.

1) Would all the characters be current or from different points in their timeline, ie, Avengers Forever?

2) You may even get more people if you mixed it up with DC or even manga. Just stating a thought.

@boschepg: I'm not totally 100% sure what you're going for with the first bullet point there boschePG, but if I'm understanding it right, you're wondering if they can be from various points in the Marvel Universe? If they can just be experiencing things like the Secret War, the Annihilation Wave, etc, even though they've already passed in our timeline? If that'st the case, then sure, that would totally work.

Also, I would add DC or manga characters, but part of me feels like that would get kinda confusing after a while, even though Marvel and DC have met in the past (DC Vs Marvel as one such example; P.S. I still ship Tim Drake and Jubilee, thanks to that event, lol :P).

@zearing Sounds good, plus I haven't done much in the vein of RPing here either, so you're in good company, my friend :D. Covers tech, energy, and telepathy, you say? Interesting... Anybody we know in particular?

On a separate note, sorry I haven't replied here in a couple of days gang. I kinda got sidetracked with stuff IRL.

Yeah, I'm sorry. I overlooked the fact that they had to be re-imaginings of Marvel characters when I first posted. Mine's an original character. I'm still willing to join if you remove that restriction though.
