Sub Rosa - influential halfprog rootrock band ~-15 years
Zodiac Motherfucker - nuprog trollmetal with grimepunk flavor and a newgrass hook. ~-10 years
Endsville - pxp retrock with livecore flavor and a 'za-puh bump

post- : by now, a fairly standardized prefix implying using the following movement as a foundation for a new musical direction; all post-punk music is presume to build on punk music in a new direction.

post-prog : a movement beginning about fifteen or twenty years ago, calling back to the prog rock era of involved storylines, heavy messages, and highly produced albums. The high production values are rarely seen in post-prog--they are not part of the aesthetic of 't-shirt rock'
nu-prog : a branch of post-prog focusing on audience involvement; songs often had hidden clues or tie-ins to the band's website, secrets in the liner notes, etc. Drew on ARGs. Opposite of progprog.
progprog : progressive prog, a branch of post-prog focusing on the message. Tendency towards pretension is pronounced. Hate nu-proggers with a passion.
halfprog : in theory, this is 'half of progprog,' ie, just plain prog music. In essence it splits the difference between the two camps.

post-punk, post-post-punk, post-post-post-post-punk, etc: A very silly escalation that was taken very seriously for a while in the 2040s, as bands vied to be 'punker than thou' in their iconoclasm and willingness to break rules. post2, post3 and post4 bands were at each others throats.

The spell was finally broken when seminal post-punk band Criss Angel Is A Douchebag admitted in an interview with Lassiter's Guide, "we just add posts until it seems weird enough for the song." The final truce was the label postx punk, or pxp.

pxp : pxp is not so much a genre as a series of expectations, and not so much that as a lack of them. A band with pxp in their genre description can be expected to break some or all of the rules of all the others. Some pxp bands will not use terms with strict definitions, such as livecore or roots rock, while others maintain subverting definitions is what punk is all about.

Okay. After an overwhelming response of "We don't have time! And we suck at OCs! ...but...", I've gone ahead and created Tenth Wonders.

Have at.

This is a post soliciting opinions and interest in a potential Original Characters Heroes-verse LiveJoural roleplaying game.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but the following characteristics are how I am currently picturing it:




*Set in the Five Years Gone AUverse, but not yet five years down the road; more or less the present day, given that the current present is six months after the Heroes finale. (Which would have, of course, gone differently in this continuity.)

This means: the public is slowly becoming aware/believing in powered individuals, and by and large fears them. Major dystopian elements (detainment camps, final solutions) haven't come into play yet, but the Dept of Homeland Security (or similar) has begun hunting powered individuals all over the US. NYC has blown up.

*No canon character or relatives of canon characters; mod screening of potential powers would take into account which powers have been pretty thoroughly explored by the show, although show powers wouldn't be universally banned. Almost certainly no empaths.

The world is big, after all. Heroic characters, nasty characters, characters working for the government, all powered or not, are all possibilities, though.

*Relatively low time commitment / slow-moving storylines. This is all I am capable of right now, and I think that applies, at least, to all everyone one-step removed from me who might be interested.

I also envision the game as being a lot like the show, in the storyline progression--lots of NPCs and ficlet style posts in addition to threads, and little pods of character interaction that splinter and change and reform; just like the cast of Heroes doesn't all get in one place on one side until the finale, hopefully we wouldn't be superteaming for quite some time. Moderation in information flow would be important--which the FYG setting creates pressure for anyway.

*On a similar note, more character exploration, rather than big pyrotechnic battles. Again, keeping to the themes of the show.




So. I'm looking to see if anyone would be interested in a game like this if I created it, and if you are (or even if you're not) I'm interested in opinions on how to make a game like this work. And if you know anyone who might be interested, could you pass this link on to them? That's why it's a journal where I don't lock fandom stuff.

Thank you.

Update.

Edits:

#Nov. 1st entry has a minor edit; added 'Part 1 (Tower):' to it, to fit into the sectioning schema I am using.

#Nov. 6th entry has some minor edits for making sense (caused by incomplete edits of a paragraph) and weather consistency with Nov. 7th entry.

#Nov. 7th entry edited for facts.

Notes:

+I want to majorly rewrite the bar fight scene when the time for editing comes. It was unplanned, and that's fine; I think it works out some foreshadowing, sets up some stuff I want to do, gets the villians on stage and uses the iconography of the characters. But it doesn't quite work as it is. Reynolds is way too ineffective, for one thing, and overall it just goes too smoothly. So, mental note, rewrite 2.6.
