The radio buzzed as the family of four huddled closely around it. Their house had been shaken violently and much had fallen to rubble. The father, covered in the grime of trying to dig out his home and even helping neighbors do the same, sighed as only interference filled their room. He had changed the batteries multiple times in hope that eventually someone would finally tell them what had happened. They had lost all electricity. The phones were down and the streets were so ravaged by the earthquakes that no one dared to try and take their cars out. They had been effectively cut off from anything outside the ruined city. He was about to turn it off when a calmed voice finally came over the air. The husband and wife looked at each other as a sense of relief finally fell over them. They would finally hear what happened. "....the massive earthquakes. Metropolis is in ruins. Fires rage throughout the city as lava continues to flow unchecked into its streets. Across the river, Gotham teeters on chaos as a third of the city is flooded by the tsunami. Ash from the volcano fills the streets of Gotham and Metropolis making driving impossible. Star City, Central City, Coast City are equally ravaged. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions are dead. It's impossible to know exactly how many." "What about the heroes?" Their young son looked up between his weeping mother and disturbed father, "they could save us!" As if to answer the young boy's question the radio continued, "we've not heard much of the heroes of these great cities. Some have died due to the disaster, others are missing. God help us if they don't show up." ------ You were about your business when suddenly powerful earthquakes ravaged much of the country. Massive volcanoes long thought dormant erupted violently spewing lava all over the place and filling the sky with enough ash to partially block out the sun. Some of your friends have perished and others have gone missing. Evil, seeing this as the perfect time to strike, has flooded the devastated streets to prey on the weak and recovering. The world has truly become a dark place. You'll be playing a CANON hero of the DC universe. Sorry, no original characters. This is a sandbox setting with a storyline that will be delivered in episodes. This is an interest check. The rules and more will be delivered when we (myself, La Reina and Neptune) feel as though there is enough interest to launch this idea. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here, or send one of the three of us a message!
