here we stand
Welcome to Here we Stand.

We are a AU DC forum, which accepts a wide variety of canon alongside original characters. We have a minimum 200 word per post count; a short application with optional RP sample after your first character here; and a 200 word history requirement only. Our activity requirements are one post minimum per month for canon and original characters.

Our plot focuses on a rising darkness which is causing magical disturbances throughout the world, bringing hardships to the heroes. The source of this darkness has been revealed and while they continue to gather support, it is up to the heroes to find a way to stop them before they reach their goal.

SPECTRE WATCH The Spectre is gathering more allies for his cause, to cleanse the world of the filth which lives within it. Driven by curiosity he seeks to test the so called 'heroes' of this world by presenting them with chaos, hardship and personal tests. At the moment, he is unimpressed by the actions of the various heroes and remains unswayed from his decision.

Malcolm still leads the League of Assassins uncontested, but for how long?<P>

It has been suggested, to the Admin team, that the site may benefit from a 'Social Media Area'.

What this would be would be a section, either under Character Building (In Character Only) or under Out Of Character (Out of Character Only) where people post up in the format of popular social media communication methods. For example you may have a topic called "Bruce Wayne's Mobile" where text messages are sent to Bruce Wayne and replied to. Or, perhaps, a tumblr page dedicated to a certain trend or person within the site.

If either "Yes" option is selected, rules will apply. To give you a chance to be a very informed voter, the admin team has outlined some rules below.

In Character Rules;

1 - Anything you say can, and likely will, be used against you

- This means that if Bruce Wayne made a comment about himself being Batman, or in any way said something that would cause people to think that, characters within the RP are able to see these comments and act upon them.

2 - No social media pages/profiles for secret identities without a written section (IC) from a hacker to cover the person's tracks

- For example, for there to be a Nightwing page there would need to be a quote from Oracle telling Nightwing she is protecting the account from hacking attempts and tracing attempts - otherwise it can be hacked for IP, location etc.

3 - Tag any potentially offensive material

4 - Unprotected communications channels can be hacked and monitored

- Hackers must be aware of their existence in order to hack them i.e. Red Hood hacks Batman's communication channels from his time as Robin because he knows of them but not the new encryptions or channels
- Hackers cannot see the communications of a com-channel that is deemed as "secure" by a hacker. I.e, If Oracle says to Dick the line is secure, Edward Nigma is unable to access it even if he knows it exists. The skill of either hacker plays no relevance in this for convenience.

Out Of Character Rules;
1 - Anything said within OOC social media or communication posts cannot be known in the RP by anyone, because the post does not exist in the site's world

2 - Tag any potentially offensive material

3 - No bullying of other members - Characters are fine, the players are not

4 - Pics or it didn't happen

This game is pretty simple but fun to do! :3

The person replying to this topic must rate the avatar of the person above out of ten according to how attractive your character thinks the person is. If you like you can leave a little comment about why they rated it the way they did.

To kick things off here's something that the first responder can react to:
