VG Force NES Game backstory The Video Game Universe has been in peace ever since Captain N defeated Mother Brain and Captain SNES did the same with the Sovereign of Sorrow. Most of the characters have now retired to their own worlds, but they are not isolated: Nexus City, built a few years after Kevin's victory, has become a community where characters can meet and talk, and in many cases they actually live there, for one reason or another. With the new generations adding more worlds to the universe, commerce between them adds more richness and cosmopolitanism to the universe. However, all is not well. Several worlds have become riddled with crime, needing heroes to fight the villains on a daily basis. In Nexus City itself there are conflicts due to the cultural shock between characters of different worlds. And the worse is yet to come. When communication is lost with a few worlds, there is great shock, because never has this happened. And when communication is restored, only a few survivors have been left, with none of them able to say what, exactly, happened to their worlds. The only thing that is known is that one of the survivors heard clues about an alliance of villains being behind the attacks, with some nefarious reason behind this. Some believe these villains want to succeed where Mother Brain could not, and others think there must be worse reasons for this. A new Gamemaster is needed, that is clear. But trying to find him or her (fortunately, there are many more female Players since Captain N) will take a long time, and someone must protect the Video Game Universe from this dark alliance of villains, while trying to ascertain how they manage to lay waste to the worlds so brutally, and with what purpose. The VG Force is formed, and every videogame character with the ability to fight, whether with their weapons, their wits or their magic, is called to help before the entire Universe falls!

Video Game villains (give a good reason for why the good guys would believe they'd help). Wreck-It Ralph characters (and other films directly related to a video game, same restrictions as with VG heroes and villains). Characters from real video games but that do not exist in that game. Characters from fictional video games. Non-acceptable characters: Characters from video games based on comics/films/books/animation/manga/whatever (if the comic/film/book/animation/manga/whatever is based on a videogame, or if it is Wreck-It Ralph, then it is OK). Characters that are not in a video game. Body / Mind / Soul (You have 15 points to assign to each of these, at least 1 point must be assigned) Techmagic Balance (a number between -4 and 4, negative numbers indicate technological tendencies while positive number indicate magical tendencies) Initial Weapon (may be subjected to modification if I consider it is too much) Initial Abilities (same as with weapons) Initial Problems (if I find these are not enough, or that they don't fit the character, then I might add or change) Backstory (mandatory: if the character already exists, only a few notes will be sufficient; if it is a fictional character, or the videogame does not exist, a more expansive background will be required) Sprite (not mandatory, but would certainly count positively) Missions A character may pick a mission from the list. Several of them can be done by one character, but some will require two or more characters to work. The missions will be carried out by exchanging PMs, or on the thread if I feel that the group is large enough. Each mission post has this information: Mission Name Description of the Mission World where the mission will take place (locals may help, PC locals will be more powerful) Difficulty Level Minimum of VG Force members required (important) Reward per player (may be increased if a good enough job is done, does not include other objects you might find) DO NOT POST YET!
