Roleplayer League / Roleplayer Legion
The Story So Far
After a long manhunt, Regina Tyler, aka Hourwoman, cornered the sinister crocodile-man Ozlow in the Gotham sewers. But after a long battle during which it seemed she would be triumphant, her “Hour of Power” expired and Ozlow was able to slither away to safety. Realizing that the nature of her powers made her unusually dependent on allies, Tyler reached out to a mysterious computer hacker named Burbank, who created a communications network based on Oracle’s but more modest in size. This new network, the Auxiliary Reconnaissance, Protection, and Enforcement Elites (ARPEE) was open to any hero “of character”, though no one really knew what that meant, and it allowed heroes to communicate without going through Oracle first.
Within days, Ozlow parodied Tyler’s invention with a shadow network of his own, administered by an unseen woman known only as “LeStrange”. This network, the Assassination, Raiding, Pillaging, and Extraction Experts, does for criminals what Burbank’s network does for heroes. Burbank and LeStrange moderate their channels and occasionally talk about each other, so they clearly know each other, but they are not omnipresent and they make no demands on the users of the ARPEE systems other than they they remain heroes and villains “of character.”
The Roleplayer League and Legion is a way for roleplayers in DCUO to network with one another, find other roleplayers, group and socialize, all without being told what to do. It is a guild only in an OOC sense. In Character, it is most strongly represented by a communication system to which heroes and villains are invited, not unlike the network which Oracle and Calculator already employ in-world. Fostering roleplay, and creating a welcoming community for it, are the primary goals of the Roleplayer League and Legion.
Members of the Roleplayer League and Legion may be solo operatives, but they may also form their own partnerships or larger groups. If you find fellow roleplayers in the League and decide to leave, forming your own guild, that’s great! We encourage you to remain on the Roleplayer OOC channel as a way to keep in touch with your fellow roleplayers and, of course, should your new guild eventually disband or grow inactive, you are welcome to return to the Roleplayer League/Legion.
