Pariah Posted January 5 Report Share Posted January 5 "I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me." Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone. We've spent the last few weeks being nice, in the interest of peace on Earth and good will toward mankind. Now it's time to be naughty. For this month's Superdraft, we'll be choosing a team of villains. This will be a dark reflection of the Five Man Band trope (details below). All character picks are exclusive, and all the usual rules for drafting characters will apply. You will make a total of 12 picks in this draft: Location: This is the physical setting for the story. This is the mandatory first pick. Locations are not exclusive. The Heist: This is the villains' objective, be it a robbery or otherwise. It may be as generic or as specific as you wish. Heists are not exclusive, but they should be interesting and/or unusual. The Big Bad: This is the villainous leader—the one with the plan, the one giving the orders. Fail him (or her) at your peril! The Dragon: This is the Big Bad's chief executive, lieutenant, or second in command. The Big Bad sees the big picture; The Dragon gets sh*t done. The Dragon may be an even more formidable combatant than their boss. The Evil Genius: This is the character with the scientific and/or technical know-how to implement the plan. They may be a capable fighter, but that's not their main function on the team. The Brute: Hired muscle, generally. The Brute may not (or may, in fact) be very bright, but they're really good at breaking things. The Dark Chick: Femme Fatale, Ninja, Telepath ... this character is less frequently a front-line combatant and more often an expert in distraction, sabotage, or subterfuge. The Hapless Hero: Someone is invariably going to try to stop this heist. Who is this poor schmuck, and why are they involved? The Hero's Sidekick: Of course, the Hero wouldn't wade into this without backup. This character is usually less powerful, less experienced, or otherwise less capable than the Hero. Three Options: Use as you see fit: additional villains or heroes, support personnel, MacGuffins, theme music, whatever. Options are exclusive, unless there's a compelling reason for them not to be. This Superdraft will begin on Monday, January 9th at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. (Ask Siri what time that is where you live if necessary.) We will draft one pick every day, including the weekend, until Friday, January 20th. Location is the first pick; all other picks may be made in any order. A poll will be posted on or around Monday, January 23rd and will close at midnight in Saturday, January 28th. Any questions? Let's hear 'em now, before things get hinky. Old Man and Logan D.
