Character Creation

xxxxxWelcome to Flashpoint: Gotham!

xxxxxThis game is set in Gotham City during the Flashpoint Universe. We borrow heavily from the Flashpoint: Paradox theme, but our mission is to focus on the world’s events’ impact on Gotham City specifically. This is a DC based game ONLY, and does not share in a multi-verse with other comic properties. If you feel like picking up a FC, please note that we DO NOT stick to the comics outcomes for them. By all means, feel free to twist and shape your favored FC as you see fit for this universe! Their story depends on you! We also, however, greatly encourage the creation, and playing, of original characters. Got an idea? Want to know how to make them work? Chat us up!

Getting Started

xxxxxThis site has a number of links and pages that help explain everything you’ll need for your character’s creation and growth. When on the game, you’ll go through a step-by-step process once you’ve entered the Character Gen area. If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, speak up! Always feel free to ask Staff and other players if you’re curious about something. Are we missing something you think should be added? Let us know and we’ll see about getting it added for future guests/players!

Atlantean

xxxxxYou are a son, or daughter, of the great city of Atlantis. Those of your race are currently at war with the Amazons. After suffering the loss of your beloved Queen, Mera, it is up to you to decide if you are with your King, or against him.

xxxxxIf you choose to play an Atlantean during this setting, you must take a few things under consideration:

  • Why are you in Gotham City?
  • Who's side are you really on, even if that side is your own?

xxxxxIt should also be noted that given your race, you are also more in tune with magical abilities. Because of this, all powers associated with magic are reduced in price for you by 3 points. This is strictly for the powers themselves and does not extend to enhancement purchases. Oh, and you can breathe under water. Nifty, huh?

Do you follow the charge of Princess Diana, or do you make your own way away from the battle front?

xxxxxIf you choose to play an Amazon during this setting, you must take a few things under consideration:

  • Why are you in Gotham City?
  • Who's side are you really on, even if that side is your own?

Final Questions

xxxxxNote that with these questions, please try to answer them to the best of your abilities. We're not asking for a novel, but feel free to write as much as you'd like, or feel is fitting. Just be sure to paint us a picture and let us know why A and B link together.

xxxxxThanks!

Questions and Suggestions

xxxxx(Remember, just answer as best you can. This is your character, and even if you're playing a FC, feel free to change things how YOU see fit. Most importantly: HAVE FUN!)

1 - Tell us about your family life. When were you born? Where? To who/whom (if you know). What was it like growing up with your family?

2 - Why are you in Gotham City? Are you a local? Visitor? Fresh face? If you're not from Gotham originally, what brought you here?

(Question 2 is ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT to those playing Amazons and Atlantaens. You MUST have a reason for being in Gotham City.)

3 - If you have powers, how did you first discover them? What were they like? Are you comfortable with them? A novice?

4 - What are your feelings about Metas/People with Powers? Do you have any thoughts/feelings about the current state of the world and the war between the Amazons and Atlanteans?

5 - What are some of your personal goals for your character? Do they have any secrets you'd like us to know about to use toward plots for you? What type of plots are your favorite?
