Ultimate Character Showdown RPGWelcome to the Ultimate Character Showdown, an RPG style game where you may take any fictional character and use them in combat! The whole point of this is to just have fun with each other, and we're aiming for a more casual environment where people can enjoy the gameplay.
The only real activity standard we have is that we'd like for people to commit to posting actions at least 1-2 times a week. If more than 5 days go by without any submitted actions, we reserve the right to skip your turn that round. That being said, we'll do our best to contact you beforehand to let you know that you need to submit an action.
The game will consist of two different battle systems: an overarching story campaign, and unrelated battles in the arena. The story campaign will be similar to a standard RPG, with allies, enemies, and bosses. In the arena, the only goal will be to defeat your opponent(s).
The story campaign will be based upon the concept that multiple dimensions of reality are distorting and overlapping with each other, creating a strange world filled with characters from various fictional series. A possible situation could be Pikachu and Goku fighting against Lord Voldemort at Hikarizaka High School. The story itself will be defined primarily by the characters involved, and what they decide to do.
Throughout the course of the campaign, characters will be able to gain experience from battles and test out their combat abilities. Any items gained here will be available for use in the arena, but likewise, any items that are lost in the campaign will no longer be available to your character in the arena.
All campaign adventures will take place in the campaign thread, and it will be open to any characters who wish to join. If at any time you wish to remove your character from the campaign, you may do so. More information about the campaign itself will be given in the campaign thread (which has been linked down below).
The arena is a combat-driven environment where characters will be pitted against each other in various fashions. These battles may include 1 on 1 combat, team battles, or free-for-alls. In this format, your character's inventory will be reset after every battle occurs (for instance, if you steal your opponent's weapon in a battle they would have it returned to them after combat has ended). However, any experience or levels gained in theses battle will remain after combat has ended.
These battles may offer rewards to the winners, which may be used in both the arena and the story campaign. Some battles may also require an entry fee to participate in. All past battles will be logged in the database thread (a link to which can be found below).

The UCS Database is a thread containing information about the game so far. Approved characters, enemies, items, past battles, etc. can be found in this thread.
The Story Thus Far [x]
This thread is a compilation of any/all important events that have happened in the story campaign. If you're new to the game and need to get briefed on what's currently happening, this is a good place to get a summary so you don't need to re-read tons of threads.
The Signup Thread [x]
This is the thread where you'll post your character sheet after completing it.
