Just start with the rp with anyone and you'll see if you are accepted or not.



While this may be true, and from what I've witnessed, there is an echelon to the general community, and while this community is not "governed" as a guild would, there are certain folks whose "word of recognition" is more widely accepted by others.

Furthermore, as folks like PG and Proton are the Site Moderators, I do value their approval.

If we were RPing Star Trek and I was a Starfleet captain that didn't know IC or OOC what a Vulcan [sign in to see URL] most people that would not be an ideal RP experience.

The same thing goes for the DCU. If wiki is your only resource for RPing a canon, the fans of the source material (in which the character appeared) will see right through you.

For example, Dr. Fate - who is Hector Hall in the game and DCUO continuity - is an entirely different character than Fate. In fact Fate is such a reviled character among the fans (like Kyle Rayner was), that fans will never refer to Dr. Fate as "Fate". It's a rare thing to hear someone to call Dr. Fate "Fate", and usually the first sign that they don't know much about the characters.

This is why I tend to play C-listers, not much canon to screw up. And most the time I've read every appearance of the canon character, so I pretty much have them down enough to where I can place them into DCU history (it is cohesive enough to do).

In the case of my StormWatch idea, I'm reading everything I can on SW, [sign in to see URL], Team Seven, etc. up to the Authority to get an idea of how those teams and characters are before I even try to attempt to craft a believable storyline for someone who happens a WildStorm purist. That's why you haven't seen me online much, I'm researching.

Oh, I understand and I wasn't calling him out (I've never seen him play of talk about Dr. Fate to judge), I was just using that as an example as I express my feelings on canons.

tl, dnr: Have respect for fellow players who are DC fans. If you're going to play a canon please RESEARCH. I'll upload comics if you need me to!

Re: Canon


Actually, do you have New TT appearances of Stroker? That's about the only comics I never find in my father's collections.

Re: Canon


You mean Deathstroke? Or was there another villain called Stroker? I'm not being a smart ass. You'd be surprised at the names they'd come up with when they needed a generic super villain. He sounds like one of the villains the Monitor hired to go after the Titans (I think Blazer was another, lol).

I can get all of Deathstroke's appearances, including his solo series if that's what you'd like.

Re: Canon


Thankfully I have his solo series before 52, just his special appearances are a bit spotty in the collection. But yes, Deathstroke is the sorted fellow. If you could help me out that'd be great.
