I'd say Vandal-character is fine, overrunning the world with demon hordes isn't. If you want to try for that, gotta be done in a big RP, not as part of a backstory.
I know that. But yeah if thats that then its good

Would a character having a spaceship be OK? I'm thinking of making a character based on the idea of "What if, instead of becoming a hero, Star Lord became a straight up mercenary, came back to Earth, and used advanced space technology to become a criminal?"

My character's spaceship would basically be the spaceship equivalent of a box truck refitted for smuggling and speed.
Of course it is! Knock yourself out

Yep, what Azra said. Live it up!

Can we do something about the approval for new characters?

I know what ya mean. It's really frustrating to have to wait for approval. But I have also seen people just go on with their plans sometimes if the council is taking too long.

Hm. Let's institute a policy that if it's been 48 hours without council approval of a character, people can bump their thread one time and request council members look at it. I think that balances respecting council time with making sure things don't get forgotten.

So in the comic universe, can we just make a new thread which is a new location to begin another plot? And others can join and rp?

Yeah but you can also post in already listed locations (which typically are open for everyone unless specified)

Making a new thread for an rp is commonly used for one on one private interactions or events that effect universe history to a certain degree.

In general if you're going to make a location, it's because you want it to be an ongoing place where multiple things can happen that may or may not involve you. For the most part, they're labors of love. If you're going to do a real-world location, keep it true to the real world - there are a couple real-world-but-different locations that were made early and have been grandfathered in (like LA), but in general if you want to make a city that really exists, make it like the one that really exists. A few minor differences are fine, like if you want there to be a Superhero Sandwich Shop or something, but don't change the vibe. Also, check to make sure no one else has already done that city.

If you don't want to do a real-world location and just want to do a create-your-own-Metropolis, that is also fine. There are several of those (Ashfall City, Solar City, Millennium City). Again just check what exists so you're not doubling up.


If you just want to RP with someone, you can use the "Do you want to RP thread" or Discord to find a partner, and choose one of the existing locales, or start a new closed interaction, or join one of the open interactions that's already there (read those first and make sure they aren't too far in and that your character fits the vibe).
