Okay guys, i need your giant brains again, so ATOMIC THINK TANK ASSEMBLE!
I need help plotting some big end of year event style events.
I've got a group of extra dimensional villains, who used to be another worlds JLA analogue... But they lose in a big way & all reality collapses... They only survive because they are shunted out of reality at the event horizon of the collapse. In my campaign world they become villains in the same vain that the Justice Lords or the orginal Squadron Supreme did: They think they can make up for failing there own world by saving my campiagn setting from its self (similiar to when "The Authority" took over its Earth, or the Justice Lords tried to take over the Animated DC Universe).
I'm trying to come up with a timeline for the world, over 5 years, nothing super complicated, but enough to make it appear like the world is alot more fleshed out then it really is. I know that one of my PC's is going to mind read one of the villains & i kind of want to give him a mental history overload, but with potential clues to the full story.
So far i know Year 1 starts with a crashed alien probe releasing nanites, a situation that causes disparate individuals to team up & the team sticks
I also know that in year 5 my Green Lantern analogue is killed & replaced by a female writer
An in year 6, the heroes fight an alien invasion force, succeed at taking the fight to them. The heroes break there own rules about killing, only to have the Villain spring one final surprise, he's biologically connected to his flagships reality drive, his death results in the red linning of the engine, a reality wave & the collapse of all reality.
An yes the probe from year 1, was indeed sent by the Invading Alien Armada that appears in Year 6.
I'm thinking i'd like a big event at least once every year and a half... I'm okay for small plot points, i'm just having trouble with the big ones, as the set up for my JLA analogue team is more Avengers then classic JLA: in that the individual team members don't all have solo titles (the team is more important then the individual).
This alternate reality is a little bit Justice League Unlimited & a lit bit DCnU: Heroes have existed in the history of the world wars, but they were pretty secretive & new heroes appeared officially only about 5-6 years ago. Help me Obiwan Kenobies, you are my only hopes.
