Busted Flush


Calling Card"Mrs Waller." The dry crackle of the generals voice echoed form the speaker. She hadn't been expecting the call, not this late anyways. "An incident has occurred, in Arizona."

Clenching the sides of her oaken desk, Amanda Waller's eyes narrowed as the words echoed out through the room. She had been expecting them to talk of formalities, perhaps a new shipment of meta human prisoners. "What kind of incident?" Her voice was deep, husky even, and didn't betray her nerves.

"It seems that Kobra has taken over a Cadmus research lab. It's unclear how exactly they learned of the lab itself, but the attack was two fold. Exterior and interior, brutal and efficient." The General's voice was flat and even, a dry crackling sound that seemed to be a mixture of crunching gravel and sandpaper.

"Well, that is regrettable, but what does that have to do with me?" Feeling a lump form in her throat, Mrs Waller knew what the General wanted. But it wouldn't serve her here to come out and be blunt. Not yet. Despite months of planning ... it wasn't quite ready. Not yet.

A silence filled the room, as the General paused.

"Don't play dumb. Get them suited and ready. The League can't know of the labs existence, and the Black Hawks aren't equipped for this. Task Force X is being called into duty. I want them in Arizona in eight hours. You understand?" A slight rise of irritation creeped into the man's voice. It was much more serious then she had originally though.

"Yes sir. I will have them deployed within the hour." Reaching forward, her hand gently touched the disconnect button, pausing over the red glare.

"Sir? What is in the facility? What is so important?"

The words hung heavy in the air, as the General seemed to ponder the question.

"Mrs Waller, you know better then to ask."

An audible click followed, once again plunging the room into silence.

Moving her hands towards the keyboard at her desk, Amanda brought up the list of inmates. She had a short list made months ago, when the project first came under consideration. Never really expecting it to take off, at least not this quickly, she had tough decisions to make.

It was time to form the Suicide Squad.


Who Am I?Hello! I am Fell, and this is Suicide Squad: Busted Flush. Set in the newly rebooted DC Universe, Suicide Squad follows a group of six inmates of Belle Reve prison in Louisiana. Called forth into service, the inmates are offered a simple contract by the government. Serve for a period of time under the orders of Amanda Waller, and your sentence is drastically reduced.

Only, fail, and the government will disavow any knowledge of their involvement, often terminating the operatives in the process. Only the most desperate, badass, and ruthless S.O.B's can call themselves members of the Task Force X, more commonly known as The Suicide Squad.



The GameYou are Villains. Mostly. Maybe you are in prison under false accusations or are a vigilante who went one step too far. Or maybe you are just a stone cold killer who deserves to be there. Either way, you are serving at least one life sentence, if not more, in the most secure prison in the world, built to house the world most dangerous Meta Humans. For many, this is your last chance at Freedom and whatever dream of redemption, revenge, or glory still remain.

What is the tone of the game? Well, high octane action, espionage, murder, mayhem and all around villainy of course! The true tale of Anti Heroes. Similar to the Suicide Squad Comics, and the Secret Six, this game is going to almost always focus on those on the other side of the Heroes of the DC universe. What makes villains tick? Who are they beyond the masks and crime? Is there honor among thieves?

Should you still be with me, you must be asking yourself, "Now, what about the crunch?" Well, how good of you to ask!

The PL is 10. Now, characters don't have to be direct copies from the DC Universe. I am not looking for direct copies. If you want to play Deadshot, play a new on, a version created by you. Or make a new hero. I am fine with people assuming the title, power set, and even family ties with established heroes and villains. Just not the established characters themselves.

Now, about the Universe. This iteration of the DC Universe will not be in any of the Canon universes. In a world identical to the newly established "New 52" world, the game will launch. There will have never been a previous Suicide Squad. Beyond that, there are a few minor changes to the lore, but most everything else remains the same.

I can also say, that there will likely be a few powers that I may outright ban. If I feel like anything is broken or being abused, I will whip out the hammer and bring it thundering down!


ApplicationsPlease post all applications in the game forum, under the category labeled "Belle Reve Penitentiary", following the format listed in the Rap Sheet sample post. Post a unique thread for each application, with your name and alias.

Feel free to ask any questions!

LOL! I am having a bit of a creative block. I'm trying to come up with a good idea for this game but my ability to conceptualize a character is capricious and currently evading me.

I mean round one should have been something to the effect. (With corrections for over crowding)

Spell + Energy Ring + Arrow + Maybe Cannary Cry or Flash Attack.
Follow up should have been a couple attacks.

I mean think about it, just rule of 20 should have taken him down.

Ozymandias is a example of planing being amazing.
Deathstroke takeing out Atom+GreenLanter+Flash+Hawkman+BlackCanny+Zatanna+GreenArrow Is a example of at the VERY least P.I.S. At the very worst bad writing.
While I disagree and could write about it, I think it'd be clogging up the ad thread at this point, so I'll bow out of the debate

Now as a counterpoint to my posts, I would like to say that everyone is entitled to there own opinion of what is cool and what is Possible. But I also have to just say that simply stating that 'it happened in comics' dose not make it good writing, even good comic writers have crap stories.

And this just comes down to every character in comics has at least one story line where they are MUCH more impresive then they actually are. = Go see Scarlet Witch in Marvel 8D

I mean really, you can find a example of any character doing something Amazing.
And this is not even a matter of the argument that 'welll bat-man can take superman with a little planing'
Ya, most people could take superman with a little planing.

This is a discussion of.
"Well with enough planing Prometheus could take the Entire JLA" Well ya maybe with allot of back up and a really good plan. But when most of the plan relies on the enemy acting like idiots (Not ligitimate character complications mind you) Then its not good story line. It's bad writing.

The slade fighter was not terrible but it did basically relie on what almost amount to cooperation on the enemy's part. They could have had it been then B-list guys + ONE impressive hero and it would have been nice. (After all he did end up kind of getting beat) But all of them... Really just think about it. Basically relies on them all being chumps.

It wasn't even really a matter of planing if you look at it. It was just a matter of 'well she needs to speak' 'he needs his wings'

That's not planning, by that reasoning he should be able to deafeat them all basically at will.

Planing would have been setting boobie traps, having back up to help at the right time, using cannon fodder.
Not just 'I know how you work'
_
And I would agree on the clogging up the threat part. So agreed.

Just a note: It said he did set a trap for Flash. All around...the comic -read- as though they underestimated him initially. At least to me...The captions seemed to be him telling the story and kinda saying "We were being stupid." Anywho, as you mentioned and I was going to point out, all he did was delay them all. He didn't actually beat any of them but Flash. How he spotted Atom though...that one I'll never know.

Slade has enhanced senses. I don't think he had microscopic vision by the book but I don't think it'd be out of his scope to power stunt it.

This looks promising. Submission posted first one on myth-weavers sorry if I stepped on any toes been working on the character since the ad went up will accept changes. Apologies to Witchslasher for copy-pasting his layout.

Ad is still up and going till tomorrow, possibly Saturday!

I will be MIA tonight, but will be here tomorrow to make the final decisions. Get those characters finished!

I have an idea that I hooooooooooooooooope I can get written down before Saturday. I've never really done the evil science genius type before (for fear that I'd not pull it off well) but I think I have a decent idea for this. I'm going to attempt a character who somehow made his body poisonous. So now he can secrete and generate different types of toxic substances. I think there was a character like that in some canon. I feel like I've heard of the idea before.

Anyway, I'm gonna try and get it written up and posted, see what I can make happen in the next couple days.

Do you need completed mechanics now or can I post up a rough draft when I get to them?

Someone's been watching too much One Piece.

Oh is that where it came from? For some reason I thought it was a DC/Marvel thing. I haven't actually seen One Piece but I've heard some stuff about it so I must've gotten it from osmosis.

I actually played a master poisoner in a Ravenloft PbP years back, and that nostalgia plus this drifting memory apparently of One Piece gave me the idea!
