Superdraft: All Your Earths are Belong to V'han!

Recommended Posts

All Your Earths are Belong to V'han!

 

Istvatha V'han, Empress of a Billion Dimensions, has come for your reality! It's full on assault as a council of her best generals have told her now is the time and each strives to prove him or herself by delivering to her an Earth!

 

And that Earth is.. dun dun dun! Yours!

 

This will be a 12 pick Superdraft. Fun bit, because we are dealing with multi-dimensional spill over, the usual rule of 'once you make a pick all versions of them are off the table are gone' does NOT apply as it usually does. If someone gets typical Superman/Clark Kent, someone else may draft Red Son Superman! However, two things. This is still limited to two. Once there are say two of someone on the picked the rest of you have to pick someone else because darn it, we want some variety.  Can you pick the same character twice for yourself? Yes. Yes you may. V'han tries not to send any special soldiers against their own alternate selves, but hey, snafus in assignment happen.  And sometimes a hero teams up with his elseworld or what if self to protect a place, Just don't be surprised if someone snipes you.

Oh, Istvatha herself is beyond drafting, peasants.

 

 

 

Location- Pick your Earth. This must be an Earth but can be ANY Earth except the real one (or whatever you call this orb we're on). Not just a superhero one.  It can be one of the DC universe Earths (they've got like at least 52 of them), the Marvel universes (Loads), or…oh wait, any Earth. It can be an Earth without superpowers even.  Do you want the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer under attack? Fine. Do you want the Earth from the Walking Dead under attack? Fine. Do you want the Earth were it's still the Korean War and Hawkeye Pierce and BJ Hunnicut are trying to save lives in a MASH unit? Fine.  We’re in a cross dimensional crisis here, folks from other worlds will end up in the rescue of Earths not their own. No more than 3 posters may share an Earth though.  So, while three lucky folks might be going Make mine Marvel, someone else might be sighing as Batman defends Springfield where the Simpsons live etc. This must be your first pick.

 

The General: This is your big bad, who will act as the head of V'han's vanguard in your setting. He, she, or it, can be anyone you want as long as they appeared in official  fiction. It's up to you to find the balance you want.  If you want Darth Vader serving V'han, then go for it. If you want Cobra Commander? Go for it. The General can be a badass, but they're mostly there for leadership and tactics (Whether they suck at that or not is your call).  Good news, every General has under their command anywhere between thousands and millions of D Troopers! Loads of ships, and toys that would make any VIPER Agent giddy. Consider the grunts freebies.

 

The Dragon: Remember when I said the General doesn't have to be a bad ass? Well, the Dragon has to be.  The Dragon is under some modicum of control by the General (Probably because V'han assigned him,her, or it to serve) but can be as dedicated or wildly unpredictable once set to a task as you like. This is not a literal Dragon (Though you know, setting Smaug on Angel Grove could be cool), but a powerful combatant or threat. Sometimes the Dragon is a bodyguard of sorts for the General. It's like Black Tom may often call the shots in old X-Men comics, but to get to him you have to face the Juggernaut.

 

Protagonists:  I'd like to say heroes, but let's face it, when Invasions come in, even the scumballs can find their desire to resist rising. Temporary alliances are forged in the face of the outsider. Sooo…  this is your chance to have Zorro agree to work with Ras Al Ghul, or the like. Unlike the setting which has to be an Earth, your protagonists can come from any fictional location be it Kyrpton, Equesteria, Westeroes, or whatever. They must come from PUBLISHED Fiction sources (So I could not, for example, draft Fish Guy or his crew yet) .  You get five of them. See the notes above about duplicates.

 

 

Options: Want some elite agents for V'han?  Want more team members for the Protagonists? Would you like a Death Star? King Arthur's sword? an organization? That's what options are for. There are three of them. Yay.  You may also pick another location off Earth as an option if you prefer to bring in another planet etc.

 

The Honor System Card pick factor-  This  pick is not under your control (or shouldn't be), and it's not under my control either. You pick a single card from a typical deck, and depending on what suit you get, you must adjust your story. This only happens one and you're on the honor system. I mean, you could lie, but you're only cheating yourself blah blah and I think we're a pretty good bunch. You must have at least three protagonists, your General, and your dragon picked before you have your card draw day.

 

If you draw …

A Club Card- Curse your Sudden but Inevitable Betrayal. One of your picks has changed sides! A defender of the Earth may try to sell it out to V'han. A V'hanian Dragon might turn on the General he /she serves!  Maybe they take their own side and betray everyone? Gasp.

A Diamond Card- Let he with the most toys, win! Congrats, you get your pick of one McGuffin from the following list: Power Ring with Battery, A kick ass vehicle, a magic sword, or theme music no one else can claim!

A Heart Card- Love Conquers All! You get a free bonus pick to ship with one of your protagonists. Somewhere in this crazy multiverse one of your heroes has found the one for them, and vice versa! And through the power of love, Victory will surely be found!

Spades- Nooooo… one of your protagonists must make the ultimate sacrifice and either dies, loses their powers/abilities, or gets married. Okay, just kidding on  that last one. But you get the idea. That said, feel free to have it turn the tide in a beneficial way to reward their sacrifice if you wish. John Williams will play the tear jerking music as the others remember their comrades' sacrifice.

 

(PS if you get the joker or something without a suit, just draw again)

 

 

We START Wednesday , January 17th, Picks will be a noon US EST time. 

 

Any questions?

Well, on the card thing, when should that be chosen?

 

 

Oh, and if I get spades, I get to have my sacrifice music played from the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood soundtrack.  (doesn't matter which song, they had dozens perfect for self-sacrifice)

 

And I will likely pick a lot from anime though not exclusively, per usual. So, if that be a problem speak now.

You must have at least three protagonists, your General, and your dragon picked before you have your card draw day.

If that's too hard to keep track of then just save it for last :)

Good pick from the music

 

And Anime not a problem! I tend towards western superhero oriented, but I know others aren't and that's fine! Anime, Manga, Novels, TV shows, Movies, etc are all viable options.I may end up going "who?" more than once, but that's MY ignorance and that's fine.

Just kidding?  And here I was hoping to find a nice man for V'han to settle down with, someone to make her realize there's more to life than conquest and convince her to abandon the vain dream of uniting the multiverse politically and to take up more fulfilling pursuits.

 

If I don't like my card draw, can I use one of the Options to draw again?

 

Lucius Alexander

 

The palindromedary asks if we can get someone besides Lucius to draw the card, as Lucius has no artistic ability and finds it hard to draw a straight line (and sometimes even hard to draw a punch line)

As I am British I can pick a person for my card draw.a person as the phrase 'you are a card' is a well known expression.

As proof I submit this

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Card_(1952_film)

But you can also find proof in dictionaries etc 

 

Ahem.

 

Your crazy germanic franco mishmash of a language and its sophistry will not save you now!

I worry that allowing this will take some of the random risk out of it, but your idea of giving up an option as a price seems fair.

 

IF you an option unspent, you may use it to redraw, but if you get the same suit twice, you're out of luck. you've lost an option for nothing, The House of V'han is a cruel casino.

 

ANNDD you must tell everyone (Honor system) that you did this so we may mock you. Mockity mock mock.

 

;)

Due to sensitivity with my first couple of picks, I'll delay them and see if I can make it work as drafting at 1-2 am is not practical.

Only for location.

 

Yeah, to be honest, I really don't care too much about location, any Earth will do, but I have 2-3 ideas to work with.  The Antagonists are going to be my big decisions  (without giving too much away, I got 3 idea for the 2 parts- one that can make a good General, one a good Dragon, and one that could really fit either)

 

Note: Obviously I guess I can go option with one of those 3 and get them all.

Location: Perry Rhodan's Earth circa 1985 just after the 1st cycle

 

The Earth of this time is far from the major power she will be in the future. In fact she has only just become unified with the rather high sounding name of the Solar Imperium. The government is becoming integrated with the old Western, Eastern, and Asiatic power blocs slowly combining with Rhodan's own tiny but far more powerful New Power.  But even with the highly advanced science and tech of the Great Imperium of the Arkonides, Earth remains a non-entity by galactic standards. On a pound for pound basis Earth is superior but her Solar Fleet consists of a mere 3 capital ships, 6 cruisers, 60 escorts, about 10,000 assorted fightercraft, and perhaps 50,000 combat robots. An eye drop compared to the numbers she could face. So Earth has been hiding in the dark while she builds up her strength. Through a clever ruse Rhodan has convinced the Galactic Powers that Earth has been destroyed and he is dead. But now it seems that someone has discovered the truth and the Empress is wasting no time. She has chosen her General, she has chosen her Dragon, and she has chosen the forces they will lead in this new conquest. Let the invasion begin!
