    Watchmen Style RP

    Post by Eljordo on Sat Nov 12, 2011 9:39 pm

    Note, this RP is pretty much like Watchmen, but it doesn't take place IN the watchmen universe. Watchmen characters do not exist in this RP, our characters ARE the watchmen.


    Back in the 1930's, masked vigilantes were legal. A group of Masked 'Superheroes' was created in 1938, called the Minute Men, to combat the alarming rise of organized crime, mainly the Mafia. The Minute Men even helped America win the Vietnam war, resulting in Nixon being re-elected multiple times. The Minute Men were renamed in 1980 as the heroes retired and were replaced by a new generation of masked vigilantes, The Watchmen. Unfortunately, by the 1980's, the golden years of the masked hero was long gone.

    In 1983, a bill was passed by the United States government outlawing Masked vigilantes due to rising public unrest. The Watchmen were disbanded, some returned to their regular lives, while others still work in secret, wanted by the government.

    It is now 1985, and a murder has been committed. One of the former Watchmen was found dead, thrown out his window by an unknown killer. There is a killer out there, his goal? Pick off all former masked vigilantes.

    Will the remaining Watchmen ban together to try and stop this killer, regardless of masked heroes being banned? Or will the watchmen fend for themselves and get picked off one by one?



    Just a few things to keep in mind with this Roleplay:

    We may be superheroes, but we have NO powers or superhuman abilities. (No Dr.Manhattan characters please). We are highly trained fighters, mercenaries and detectives who happen to wear costumes Razz

    Keep in mind we have NO idea who the killer is, so this is more of a mystery RP than action.

    The killer can go after ANY ONE of us at any time, so keep on your guard Razz

    I will be playing a regular character AND the killer, but I will be ridiculously ominous with my Killer posts so I don't spoil the mystery Wink

    And Btw Character death is a real possibility in this RP, so watch yourselves Wink

    IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION REGARDING NIGHTWATCH, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

    History (Unknown to the public): Jordan Conolly was born June 30th, 1954. He was raised in a broken home in New York, he never knew his father and his mother was a drug addict. After a childhood of being beaten by his mother, and witnessing the true ugliness of the world, he grew to hate criminals with an undying passion. Throughout his childhood, his only real inspiration was the famed 'Minute Men'. The Masked heroes employed by the government to fight organized crime, and help America win the war in Vietnam. Jordan had found his inspiration. In 1976, Jordan joined the NYPD, but his true goal was to join the Minute Men. While on the police force, Jordan learned that he had quite the knack for detective work, and in secret he was training himself in multiple forms of martial arts. Once he heard that the Minute Men were retiring, and the government was looking for replacements, Jordan knew this was his chance. He ended up faking his own death, making people think Jordan Conolly, the police officer, was dead. In truth, he took up a knew identity as NIGHT WATCH. He eventually attracted notice from the US government, and in 1980 he was employed as an official WATCHMEN. When the Watchmen were disbanded in 1983, NightWatch refused to give up his vigilantly persona. Between 1983 and 1985, Nightwatch's continued vigilante work has placed him as the 3rd most wanted man in America (Making him the 9th most wanted man in the world).

    Weapons: Nightwatch is known to carry a pistol, but other than that his arsenal is varied depending on what he decides to bring with him. Nightwatch is very resourceful, and is very good at making use of improvised weapons.

    Nightwatch is weary. The news of Eclipses death could not have come at a worse time. Eclipse was one of the few 'Minute Men' who refused to retire and became a Watchmen, though he was getting older. When Masks were banned, Eclipse did quit, but he was essential to Nightwatch's success on the streets. Eclipse was acting as Nightwatch's informant after the ban was passed.

    Nightwatch continued down the alleyway towards the crime scene, he had to at least check it out.

    I grunted as I ran into an ally to hide from the police cars. Their sirens were blaring behind me when I came to a huge dumpster. I quickly took of the armor and threw it in, before exiting the alley. I made a sigh of relief knowing I was safe now. Police cars pass me by as I walk casually. Another one of my colleagues have been killed, and now there are even less of us. I frown at the thought of it. I started to walk to the crime thinking that more night watch would surely be there. It would be nice to solve this crime together.

    I sat in the coffee shop as cop cars whirred by, sipping my drink slowly, eyes never leaving the window. I had picked a booth in the front of the shop, not too far from the door, not too far from the glass of the window either.

    My cold eyes keep a grip on the outside world, inspecting every noise, every movement. My ears pick up on a group of elderly talking about a murder, my eyes flicker over.

    "It was said they were thrown out of a window."

    "Yes... Mhmm... One of the... Oh, my what was it... The Watchmen..."

    "yes, the Watchmen, I remember them."

    "Behind the alleyway of 21st street...."

    "Is that where?"


    My eyes lock and I set down my coffee, abruptly standing and making my way out of shop and towards 21st street.

    Nightwatch continued until he was near the crime scene. He was hiding in the alleyways, too many cops around. Two police officers were guarding the front door to the apartment complex, this would be more difficult than he originally planned. He crouched down and made his way around the building, sticking to the shadows. He found himself behind the apartment, and there was a nice unguarded fire escape. Perfect.

    I came to another dumpster behind the complex and reached in. There were selective dumpsters all over the city that contained my costumes. They are such an inconvenience to the dump trucks and eveyday citizens that they are left alone. I quickly threw on the suit and walk to the front of the building. I grunted as I saw the guards at their post. I was about to leave when I noticed a shady figure moving around to the side. I almost laughed out loud as I followed the figure. "Looks like I was right." I whispered once I saw what had made it stop. It doesn't seem like the guards are that good at their job if they leave openings around the building. You didn't have to be a scientist to figure it out.
