Following in the tradition of the original sixwordstories
is a dressing room game for DC/Vertigo/Milestone/Wildstorm universe characters. Set in a hole in the multiverse known as the Hub, characters from different universes and timelines meet and mingle with no app or preparation beyond a simple DreamWidth character account. Just make a character and play! The only requirement for suitable characters is that your posts be exactly 6 words - no more, no less. (Your comments, of course, can be however long you want.)
Setting details: The Hub is a patchwork place. The last stop beyond the 52 (or more?) worlds of the multiverse. You’ve slipped through the cracks of your universe, and fallen into ours.
The Hub is, in general, a gracious host, but it has its own little quirks. The place seems almost alive, and frowns on death and violence in general - though, on occasion, events may conspire to allow such unpleasantness. Still, many may find the Hub has an oddly pacifying effect, allowing even the bitterest of enemies to banter instead of brawl. Some may also find that the instability of the Hub leads to strange happenings now and again, which people choose to ignore… mostly.
In general, the Hub is fairly self-conscious, and would prefer to be left out of most conversations. Fortunately, the Hub provides a handy Bulletin Board in all locations, informing newcomers of what’s up so they can easily skip the disorientation and join the fun. And what fun there is, because the Hub seems quite determined to encourage people with little reason to talk to each other to sit down and have a chat. Conversations can be avoided with ease, certainly, but now and again, it’s nice to give in to the impulse to just join in a conversation and talk to someone new, isn’t it?
To cut through the fluff text: violence is acceptable, but letting things spiral into violence can really kill fun conversation possibilities, so be sparing with it. Newcomers can wonder at the Hub, but feeling the need to make an obligatory introduction post can get somewhat tiring, so go ahead and jump in with any old post if you don’t see the Hub tour being particularly exciting. Casual chatter or silly events, such as Stephanie Brown complaining about homework, or Lois Lane asking you random questions, or a giant Batwoman wedding where everyone is inexplicably invited, are encouraged, and characters with no ties to the original character are encouraged to tag for the hell of it. Remember - we’re all here to have fun, lighthearted RP, so feel free to set up plots with other posters, but never feel like you can’t have completely unassociated or even overtly hostile characters making small talk.What is allowed:
--Any canon characters from any DC/Vertigo/Milestone/Wildstorm title.
-Canon characters from the DC/Marvel Amalgam Universe.
-DCAU canon characters.
-Any canon character from any adaptation of a DC/Vertigo/Milestone/Wildstorm title. (Movies, TV shows, animated)
-Elseworlds/canon alternate Earth versions of any canon DC/Vertigo/Milestone/Wildstorm title.
-Non-canon AU versions of canon DC/Vertigo/Milestone/Wildstorm characters. (Pre-Crisis, genderswapped, never died, ongoing fanfiction universes, etc.) If you are playing a character from an ongoing fanon universe, you must have the writer’s permission to play that character, or, if the universe is collaborative, be permitted to play that character by someone who is a writer in that universe. We’re not going to go around “checking IDs” here, but if we get a PM from a writer whose universe you have been using without permission, banhammers will be dropped.What is not allowed:
-Canon characters from universes other than DC/Vertigo/Milestone/Wildstorm and their media adaptations.
