Galactic Rogues XYZ - A Year Long SGPA Collaborative Project!
I attempted to get the ball rolling about this last year, but it seems like there needs to be more structure in how this happens! Plus I'll add more spin to it to make it more interesting and hopefully get you all to participate in some way to create group villains (technically owned by the group itself!). So here we go~!
This is a group villain collaboration project that will span the entire year, with each month developing a different aspect of them until their designs get finalized in the end. Each month may have a very involved or simple piece (like just signing up, deciding some stats, creating part of their backstory and personality, etc.). Of course, the activity will be simpler during contests and other events to better organize everyone's time and energy. Everyone is encouraged to participate in some way so you can feel like you had a hand in creating the characters!
As these are group-created characters and will be considered group-owned (Copyright to SGPA~! xD), ONCE THEY ARE COMPLETED, anyone is free to do anything they want with the villains as long as they are an active member. This means you can draw art of them doing whatever and add to their story however you want.
For example, if you so desired to have one villain be a rival of your character or be obsessed with defeating your character, go for it. If you hate them and just want to write stories of how they fail in life, okay! If your character finds them particularly hot or alluring and you feel like developing a romantic or casual relationship between them, then PLEASE DO! lol You are free to create some drama with them.
The only rule is that you accept that they are group-owned and you cannot control how others in the group may depict them. For example, Person A might want to make Z fail and be really foolish whenever they fight their character, but Person B feels that Z is really capable and should prevail a lot of the time. Don't fight about it! People are free to interpret, exalt, or possibly degrade the characters however they like if they are a member.
Hopefully that is clear! xD
SO ON WITH THE PROJECT...MYSTERIOUS AND POWERFUL VILLAINS APPROACH IN 2016... STORY PREMISE:
Although the Justice League and various hero alliances, including the SGPA, tried their best in 2010 to contain a world-wide web of rift-creating machinery, repairs could not be made on all space-time fabric anomalies. However, the heroes and sages of the world kept vigilant over new activities, and things seemed relatively peaceful for the next few years until an invasion occurred in 2016.
Through the rift, some unlikely heroes appeared, such as Sage [link] and Mint [link] , but they unknowingly also pulled along Grae the Red [link] to this universe. Grae was a demon that was once contained to limit his destructive and disruptive powers, but since being set free and causing havoc, the Justice League and the SGPA have begun to look into whether other beings may have come through undetected. With the use of the highest level intelligence agents, psychics, and magicians that would volunteer their services, the Justice League and the SGPA were able to locate new strange anomalies that were not part of the current universe. However, the SGPA were also able to find 3 other energy manifestations that the Justice League could not detect.
This was because these entities seemed to be a part of this universe, attuning themselves to their environment and surroundings to fit in, much like Dysta [link] is able to when she took form and began synchronizing her stats to her friends and allies. It seemed possible that these entities came from the same place Dysta did, fallen from a higher plane without a way to return. Dysta was sympathetic and wanted to find them to help them out, but as they gathered more information on their whereabouts, it seemed more and more likely that these entities had started attuning themselves to less than ideal sources...
The first few people these entities came into contact with must have been enemies of the SGPA, twisting the hearts of these entities, and turning them into powerful new villains. When the SGPA set out to locate these fallen beings, they were met with a confusing hostility. The entities were therefore code named tentatively as Galactic Rogue X, Galactic Rogue Y, and Galactic Rogue Z.
EACH MONTH, WE WILL DEVELOP A DIFFERENT ASPECT OF THESE ROGUES UNTIL WE FINALIZE THEIR DESIGNS AND FIGHT THEM IN DECEMBER!Did you notice how this kind of mirrors the new Pokemon X & Y announcement? XD Ahahaha..~!
To look at the schedule that we will be doing this, please look at this journal:
JANUARY ACTIVITY: Villain Sign-Up!
If you have an SGPA villain that is around during Season 2 (2016), then please consider signing up as one of the first influences in these developing villains~!
This will help decide their basic impression when it comes to:
GENDER: Depending on the mix, this decides if they are more male or female or both! I know the profile silhouettes are already suggestive of that, but that can always be changed. ;D
AGE: Depending on the age, this will decide what age they will look like
HAIR COLOUR: When Dysta came into contact with Solar Cat and Sugar Space Bunny, the first person she saw had hair that looked black, so most of her hair turned black. These villains operate in a similar way.
EYE COLOUR: When Dysta came into contact with Solar Cat and SSB, their eyes were brown, so her eyes turned brown.
SKIN COLOUR: When Dysta came into contact with Solar Cat and SSB, she imitated their blended skin tone (tanned because it was summer~).
When XYZ "arrived", they were all in separate areas, on the ground, and just gaining consciousness looking like a glowing but shadowy being. So you get to choose which one you would like to influence with your villain! How did your villain approach XYZ? Draw a picture/sketch or write a short paragraph to explain this and start imprinting on them!
I will take more than 5 villains for each slot, but it's first come first serve when it comes to who will actually influence them based on the images or short paragraphs that I receive. I already have in mind what influences what (it's based on how I first designed Dysta, and I don't think any of you know it lol), so depending on how your villains react to or interact with XYZ's waking consciousness, a different aspect will be affected.
Your villain must have an active profile. The profile can be either a Season 1 or Season 2 profile. They just need to be around or alive in S2.
You can save a spot to influence any of them. Just choose whoever you like.
In order to make your villain's influence "concrete", you need to write a short paragraph or sketch an image of them approaching or interacting with GRXYZ (it doesn't have to be polished or anything).
Sign up by January 31, 2013.
You don't have to get your image or paragraph done until after January 31 (this is just to kind of reserve a spot as a reminder for yourself), but it's first come first serve thing, so getting it in as soon as possible ups your influence chance!
