Freinds and Adventure await!

img

Marvel Champions is a world of heroes, villains, secret agents, and so much more set against the backdrop of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here, the cinematic world of the Marvel Universe merges with portions of the Marvel Comic-verse, and even parts of the Sony X-verse. teeming with possibilities and as much adventure and intrique as you can handle.

Our world Is set a few months after the events of Captain American: Civil War. Steve Rogers and his Avengers are working in secret while S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Slokovia Accords try to regulate an ever-increasing cadre of vigilantes and heroes in a dangerous world with Inhumans and Ghost Riders that defy logic and explore magical realms.

We ask you to join us and write yourself into our take on silver screen adventures of Marvel's Cinematic heroes? We ask you to imagine yourself a super spy like the Black Widow or a mercinary with a checkered past like Hawkeye. Or maybe power of Captain Marvel or The Thing is more to your tastes. Check our character bank to see who is available, pick a character you want to adopt, polish up your application and come and write with us in our shared Universe. And welcome to Marvel Champions.

The Character Bank, or your girl Friday

Here we have collected, condensed, and summarized everything we believe you would need to join and get started on Marvel-Champions. But before we go further, we want to stress very firmly that Marvel-Champions is a very different kind of site. We’ve built our site from the ground up. This isn’t just another re-skinned jcink or Proboards, nor is it Google or Yahoo group that someone has attempted to beautify. No. We have re-imagined how a text based role-play can work, look, and respond to our members needs.

To that end, we’ve built our site from the ground up. We’ve built our own forum software (iRPcms v0.5.3) and created many unique features so that we are beholden to no one but ourselves. As such, we have a site where anything goes and a culture that is hopefully welcoming to all.

Currently we are play testing the first iteration of our system and will continue to consider, reconsider, iterate, and develop our systems, policies, and procedures so that we can be as adaptive and responsive to our membership as is possible. At the moment, our site already boasts a few unique features, many of which can be seen when visiting Jarvis, Friday, & Cerebro or whatever you'd like to call it.


The Character Bank in a nutshell

img img

The Character bank, a responsive tool which has been designed to help you find various things quickly and to save you the time and hassle of having to upload character profiles, faceclaims, participate in activity checks, and more. If you want to know if Cyclops is available or take, who plays him, what he can do or his powers and history, just enter his codename into the search box for characters. If you want to see all the playbys or the playby resources we have, enter the name of the playby you interested in OR just click to see our available assets - which will preload into your app if you choose one so you don't have to code anything. And the best think about the Character Bank is that it handles your faceclaim, activity checks, and also automatically uploads your character into the Character Bank. No need to make a thread for the character. It just happens.

Call it what you like, Jarvis, Friday, Cerebro, Burt, whatever, our claims tool handles everything automatically for you, and it does so behind the scenes. Say goodbye to the days of hassling with code and scripts to post faceclaims, plotters, activity checks, and more. Our claims tool does it all and more.

Site Rating

Marvel Champions is rated L-3 | S-3 | V-3

Our site rating is 3/3/3 as detailed at RPGrating for some sort of a standard. In short, that covers language, sex, and violence. Those are the highest ratings on the site, indicating few if any limitations in all three of those categories. As explained on that site, this rating doesn’t necessarily mean that the rpg will be a free-for-all, but that mature themes can be expected in general. If that’s something which is going to be an issue for you, please consider that before applying.
