Elseverse: A DC and Marvel Game
Elseverse is an Elseworlds inspired game that asks, “What if?”
What if Superman never landed on Earth?
What if a zombie virus swept through a world populated by superhumans?
What if the heroes and villains we know existed in another time? Another place?
We’re looking to see how familiar characters are adapted and changed by their surroundings. At Elseverse, you’ll play a canon comic character from either the DC or Marvel universe and explore how they would exist in a world unlike their own. The game features different worlds that will cycle out to give players a chance to explore a variety of themes and settings while also exploring what defines their character.
We are just coming out of our Alpha with our full launch on June 1st, diving headfirst into our new timeline - a post-Apocalyptic one where the heroes’ resolve are put to the test in a world where they have already lost the Earth to a tyrannical conqueror!
Players are encouraged to come check it out, ask questions, and claim characters!
Just wanted to drop an update. Elseverse has officially been out of Alpha and in it’s Beta phase for nearly a month! Time flies.
We learned a lot with our first timeline (Steampunk) and have learned even more with our second, current timeline (Apocalypse). We are about halfway through Apocalypse and going strong with plenty of Marvel and DC slots open and a poll is up to decide our next theme.
This poll will end on 6/30 and the new theme will begin on August 1st, at which point Steampunk will completely phase out (for now!) and Apocalypse will transition into its Epilogue (Sandbox) phase.
Feel free to drop in and check us out!
It’s been a while but wanted to post another Update!
We are continually learning and adapting and ironing out kinks. After experimenting with some fun sandboxy themes were are excited to announce our next Plot-Driven theme which is set to officially start on October 29th.
Shadows Over New York will be a 1920s, fully powered setting. You can read the full timeline page here: https://elseverse.aresmush.com/wiki/timeline:earth-son
The big apple in the 1920’s: a proliferation of illegal alcohol, smoke, jazz, and a certain lack of concern for the law. After all, the cops are in on it. The criminals are in on it. Hell, even the heroes ain’t all saints in this City. Day by day, it only seems to get a little darker, a little weirder, and a little less safe for those who try to only walk in the light.
There’s a well-known speakeasy for those of a certain nature, just a flight of steps down from a Manhattan subway entrance and a few blocks away from the Flatiron Building. They call it Limitless. A thing that will last no matter the change in the ever growing rush of the city.
It’s for the heroes, the villains, the cops who steal and the cops who rise above, to put aside their allegiances - at least for a drink.
Yet as the City grows darker, those who live at its fringes, both the highest peaks and the lowest lows, must come together to navigate a new threat beyond day to day crime and conviction. They must fight the shadows that threaten to swallow the city whole, a horror that has no name, no known origin, but creeps insidiously as a rat along a pipe. It wants to swallow the City.
It’s up to them to stop it. Or embrace it. One way or another, the City is never gonna be the same.
