Re: [General]The Return of CHARACTER CONCEPTS

So, new idea for a superhero team. They're based, conceptually, on the seven planets of classical astronomy. No clue as to an origin story, but I'd like for them to gain their powers together. Their characterisation is pretty bare-bones as well, shamefully (damn, I haven't even given them all a team...

Oh, and give Ludwig a badass death scene. Maybe he turns to the side of good and sacrifices himself to save the day, I dunno. Just make it cool.

Re: Long Abscence Thread.

I've been mostly on SB and playing World of Warcraft. Also afraid to flex my creative muscles after my last attempt devolved into a load of stupid offensive nonsense entirely by my own fault. Right now I have an idea for a Comix superteam, but I'm unsure whether to bother since this whole place seem...

Re: Apocrypha Redux

My skill at Biblical exegesis is probably quite low but I will try and help clarify some things, give some support and such: 1. The Beast of Revelation with all them horns and crowns isn't a literal big scary sea monster but an allegorical view of an incredibly powerful and evil empire which rises o...

Re: Saying hello to some old friends: Universe Introduction

Glad to see OF is back! Considering that it got me involved in the OZ forums in the first place I hope it generates some new activity (even Comix has slowed to a crawl :( ).

Hmm, it never does say gods benefit from drinking each other's ichor, does it? Only the true life-force within the heart matters, which would make sense as why gods tend to protect their hearts with the biggest and most badass bodies possible. The bit about a god's ability to regrow its body from i...

In fact everything's more or less the size of countries, I note.

Also the effects of luminium dep...

Does anybody have any idea what Comixverse NYC is like? I don't recall any characters being active there (aside from Doctor Difference) or anything else touching on it.

Just a random question, possibly touching on a character I'm developing.
