OK, so in tonight's GUARD session, Count Nostrous has laid a trap for our intrepid heroes using the realm of nightmares. The heroes enter this realm, and go to fight him in the Castle of Forever Sorrows.
Many horrible deathtraps are faced, but the worst is the one where they are all turned into muppets and forced into a group musical dance fight against Muppet SS officers weilding Zippo lighters and singing songs from "Glee."

And now an announcement sure to thrill you.
DCU game proposal.
With the Marvels PBP game a pretty clear success on the Playground board, Jens (aka Nightvision) and myself have decided to start up a DC universe game.
System: We’re going to use Green Ronin’s Mutants and Masterminds 2nd edition, which is useful as they already have conversions for all the DC characters that we can use. As all of us, myself included, will be fairly new to the system, we’ll be learning as it goes.
The Setting: We are going the use the version of the DC universe seen in the Justice League Unlimited Cartoon, with a few minor modifications to allow as many DC characters as possible into it.
Superman – taken (by myself) Atom/Ray Palmer – taken (by Jens) Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Batman (Bruce Wayne), Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter – off limits
There will be no PC redundancies – meaning that if someone picks the Wally West Flash, the Barry Allen Flash, Kid Flash, Impulse, Max Mercury, etc – are off limits. If someone picks the John Stewart Green Lantern, then similar Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner et al. will not be allowed. (However, other versions of these characters would be -- if someone has Kyle Rayner, then John Stewart Darkstar and/or Guy Gardner Warrior are fair game.)
The GM’s preferences are for existing DC characters to be used – there’s enough variety and options there for everyone – and because we are using the Animated continuity, very few of them have any long, convoluted backstory to memorize.

What he said.
You want cosmic adventures? Challenges to thrill you, where the stakes are high and failure might mean the end of the world -- or the end of the universe?
Join our DCAU game.
Actually, it's pretty simple. Basically, you'd need to make one post a day, and come back to read what happens with the rest of the game. Michael and I have the reference materials to help you build your character - or help you choose a pre-built one. (I'm using a pre-built Atom for the game.)
It's fairly easy, it's fun, and it doesn't require much time.
