  1. It is the King Kirby Superdraft. Rules - Usual Superdraft rules apply. - Eligibility: Any character created or co-created by Jack "King" Kirby. - Any character not created or co-created by The King but drawn by him requires an Option pick. - Location is drafted first, and any subsequent picks in any order. Roster: Location: 1 Heroes: 6 Villain: 1 Options: 3 New Rule: Commissioner Bonus Pick If the Commissioner loves a draft pick, he can award that player a Bonus Pick. Bonus Picks are just that, a bonus, and once awarded can be redeemed at any time. Bonus Picks can also be awarded for creative or obscure draft picks that the Commissioner feels warrant the awarding of one. A maximum of 5 Bonus Picks can be awarded during the draft. When do we start? Pariah decides. Not to. Edit: Okay, the time to start is 9 pm GMT/UTC this Thursday. Google says this is 4 pm Eastern Time. So Friday in Australia.
  2. Ye gawds, it's the World Creation SuperDraft! You are a god. We are building a new fantasy mythology from scratch. Working with all of the other gods, you are going to create a new world. The setting is completely blank. You will need to contribute your divine ideas to build the lands and populate them with a variety of life. Here's what you'll need in your divine portfolio. Domains of Influence. These are special realms of control and responsibility for which you are known and prayed to. You will have one primary domain and three secondary domains. Secondary domains can be a new area of influence or can recreate any of the other divine contributions (including Interference). Geography. You are the patron and builder of certain locales. It can be as broad as a continent or an ocean, or it can be as specific as a city. Sentient Life. Humans are not here by default. You can build entire races from scratch or offshoots of another race already created. (Example, God A creates centaurs. God B likes centaurs, too, so he builds an offshoot race, dark centaurs.) Gift to Civilization. Whomever the races may be, they are extremely primitive. As gods, you must guide them. Contribute skills or knowledge to the population. You can specify a particular people for your gift, which will make them the best at it, but it will spread to others. Flora or Fauna. Create one of the following, either a special plant or crop for the world OR a special animal or livestock for the world. You dictate use, danger, locality, power, etc. These can be real world things (roses, corn, horses, etc.) or mythic (walking trees, Audrey II, Godzilla, etc.) Interference. Bestow a Blessing or curse to an existing place or people. The gods were often family, working together. They were also competitive, and sometimes downright petty. This is your chance to enact your will upon a fellow gods' creation. Mythic Monster or Guardian. You have singular representation in the world, a special, magical creature, benevolent or deadly. This creature is unique, named, and intelligent. Round one will be your Primary Domain, but the rest can be selected in any order. This is a grand experiment. I will not be participating because I don't want to influence where the world goes. We will begin Thursday June 1, Noon Eastern.
  3. I'll start the conversation, since nobody else has. How much interest is there in doing one or more Superdrafts in 2018? I have an idea that I could implement for February. It would start on the first Monday, run for two weeks, and include a twist that (as far as I know) has never been included in a Superdraft yet. I'll start putting things together if there's interest. We can also talk about what we might want to do in subsequent months. Who would be willing to run a draft, who would want to participate, when people would be able to do it, all that kind of thing. Feedback?
  4. The Premise: A notorious supervillain has got his hands on time travel technology. He’s spent several months (or years? Decades?) just wandering around time and space, observing, studying, and taking notes. He’s even tried making subtle changes at key times, just to see what the effects would be. Now, after his long and arduous research, he is ready to strike. He is assembling a team of like-minded individuals to strike at key points in history to change the shape and flow of time and space. His ultimate goal? To take over the Universe, to rule and reign over the past, the present, and the future. Someone needs to stop him. To this end, heroes from across time and space will band together to save the Universe. The Draft: Each player will make up to ten selections beginning on June 1st. Players will draft each day beginning at 12:00 noon Eastern Daylight Time. (Use Google as needed to figure out what time this is where you are.) The Base of Operations must be the first pick; all other picks may be made in any order. We will be drafting on the weekends. Players may draft any professionally published fictional character. Once a character is selected, all other versions of that same person are off the board. There are ten (10) selections total to be made. They are as follows: Base of Operations: This is a specific time and place from which your heroes will operate. Please specify a physical location and a time. This must be your first pick. Bases of Operations are exclusive. Heroes (6): Choose six protagonists, one per day, to oppose the villains. These must be professionally published fictional characters. EACH CHARACTER MUST BE FROM A DIFFERENT ERA. That is to say, no two characters can be from the same time and place. Choose characters from different times/locations in the past, present, and future. Character choices are exclusive. The Dragon: You will also select one villain who is working with the bad guys. (Who are the bad guys? See below.) This will be the primary antagonist for your specific team. As with the heroes, Dragons are exclusive. Options (2): These are for things other than characters. Exotic weapons or technology, alternate locations, supporting characters, additional heroes or Dragons, whatever. Options are exclusive, unless there’s a compelling reason for them not to be. The Bad Guys: As you are drafting heroes and such, I will be drafting villains. I’ll use the same rules: Base of Operations first, one Villain per day, exclusive picks, from different eras, and so on. I will choose six villains. I will not select an Anti-Dragon (hero) or any Options. Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Right, what’s an era? A: An era, for purposes of this draft, is a distinct time and place in history. It can be as general as “Earth during the Jurassic” or as specific as “a space station orbiting Epsilon Eridani III, 2258”. Q: Are “1600s England” and “1600s Japan” considered different eras? A: For purposes of this draft, yes. Q: Is this a supers draft? A: It can be, if you want. Draft the characters you’d like. If you want to draft a whole team of Skilled Normals, that’s great. You are neither required to, nor forbidden from, drafting characters with superhuman abilities. Q: Will you be drafting villains in response to the heroes that we draft? A: Wow, that’s a great idea! Thanks for mentioning it! Q: I really wanted to draft Captain America, but someone has already drafted Steve Rogers, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. What do I do? A: Draft a Captain America who isn’t Steve Rogers. William Naslund (A/K/A Spirit of ‘76) is probably still available, as is Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson. Q: Someone drafted Mister Fantastic as one of their heroes. Can I draft Maker (Ultimate universe Reed Richards) as my Dragon? A: No. After Mister Fantastic is taken, all other versions of Reed Richards--even those from alternate universes--become unavailable. Q: How specific does my Base of Operations need to be? A: It needs to be one place in one era. “20th Century Earth” isn’t nearly specific enough. “New York City, 1980s” would probably be okay. Q: Can I draft real people? A: You may draft fictional versions of real people who are not currently alive. (Specify the source, please.) No version of any living person may be drafted. Pastiches of living people are okay, however. In other words, you may not draft Arnold Schwarzenegger, but you could draft Rainier Wolfcastle (McBain) from The Simpsons. Q: Will I need a title? A: That would be helpful. Reveal your title at your discretion. If you have any additional questions (and I’m sure you will), bring ‘em on. I’ll answer them as best I can. We’ll start the draft Friday, June 1st at 12:00 noon EDT. That’ll be the Base of Operations. Additional draft picks are made each day thereafter at the same time. So, who’s in?
  5. Get off that pine pony, it's the Back Benchers Unite Superdraft! I know how Superdrafts work. What makes this any different? Here, we'll be drafting comic book heroes. The trick is, I have here a list of 100 banned heroes. You can't draft any of them. This was a list of Superheroes by comic book appearances, making it a rough list of who is most popular. (it looks like Marvel heroes, and X-Men in particular, are overrepresented, but I didn't make the list and I'm too lazy to make my own.) Thus, this is a draft for the less popular and well known heroes; the back-benchers, if you will. https://www.ranker.com/list/superheroes-ranked-by-most-comic-book-appearances/ranker-comics Alphabetized here: UPDATE: We'll use the Comicvine.gamespot.com data. No characters with more than 1000 appearances. Can I draft a banned character for a villain? Nope. When? May 1, Noon Eastern Daylight Savings (not standard) What's the billet? Location: Hero: Hero: Hero: Hero: Hero: Hero: Option: Option: Option: Villain: What happened: Uh, what's that last thing? Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods? Where are all the top list supers? Dunno. plug in one paragraph saying where they are and why. When I put up the poll, I'll put up one for rosters and one for "What Happened". Roster: https://docs.google.com/document/d/186gkfAun4e-sBeSRhmle8xbomqYM0SEW6QmNQcrpdfc/
  6. Shipping: The fine art (and ubiquitous internet hobby) of taking two notably different fictional characters and making them a couple. Here’s your opportunity to do the same, for fun and votes. The Premise: You have been placed in charge of creating a new romantic comedy--TV series, movie, whatever. Copyright law has been suspended (since the same two or three corporations own all the world’s fictional characters anyway), so you are free to choose whatever characters you would like for your show. The Twist: To keep it interesting for your potential viewers, you may use existing characters from any genre except romantic comedy. Science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, pirate movies, period pieces, horror, animation, whatever. Go nuts. But we don’t need (or want!) to see Ross and Rachel 2.0. You’ve probably all seen the video from the Black Widow thread. This is something like the feel we’re looking for. Or, imagine that John Crighton and Aeryn Sun have finally retired from fighting and settled down on a nice, peaceful planet somewhere...only to discover that their new neighbors are Wash and Zoe. Hilarity ensues. You get the idea. The Tone: Light-hearted and playful. Humorous. Have a ball with it. Imagine serious characters in silly situations. Plant your tongue firmly in cheek. Make it fun. Add some romance. This isn’t about saving the world; it’s about escapism and guilty pleasures. Laugh it up, fuzzball. Draft Details: The draft will begin on Monday, February 5th at 5:00 p.m. EST (which should be 10:00 p.m. in London and 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in Darwin). Picks will be made each day at that time; there will be 10 draft picks total. This places the final pick on Valentine’s Day. (Awwww.) The usual rules about different versions of a character apply: Selecting one version of a character removes all other versions of the character from consideration. Once the original Ant-Man is selected, all other versions of Henry Pym (Yellowjacket, Giant-Man, etc.) are off the table. Ant Man Scott Lang could still be selected, though. Draft the man (or woman), not the mask. Picks for this draft will consist of the following: Location: This could be literally anywhere, any time period. Location picks are exclusive, although different versions of the same location (Marvel New York City vs. “West Side Story” New York City) are fine. This must be the first pick. Alpha Couple (2 picks): These are the main protagonists. Think Robert & Helen Parr, Rick O’Connell & Evie Carnahan, John Sheridan & Delenn. They need not be a couple in canon! Want to pair up Lockjaw & Yankee Poodle, or Marty McFly & River Song? That’s what we’re here for. Use two days to pick these characters. Beta Couple (2 picks): This is the Barney & Betty to Fred & Wilma, the Fred & Ethel to Lucy & Ricky. Again, they need not be a couple in canon. Use two additional days to pick these characters. Wacky Neighbors (1-3 picks): These are the other colorful characters in your neighborhood: the friendly beat cop, the Latina lady who runs the local laundry, the quiet kid who’s secretly a superhero, the irritable guy at the coffee shop, the arms dealer next door, or whatever. These are the characters the Alpha and Beta couples will interact with most. Choose at least one. Any picks not used on Wacky Neighbors will be shifted to Options. Options (2-4 picks): Use these for pretty much anything else you can think of for your story. Additional characters or locations, MacGuffins, theme music, whatever. These picks are exclusive, unless there’s a good reason for them not to be. Title: You don't need to use a pick for this, and you can announce your title at any time. Again, you will end up with a total of up to 10 picks. The first pick is the Location; all other picks may be chosen in any order. All right, who’s interested?
