I'd like to see this grow into a self functioning universe overtime, but for the time being this will serve as a community resource containing characters, races, location, and whatever else you want to contribute for free use by anyone, for any purpose they so choose.

Bio
Name – "Big" Joe Burns
Age – 47
Height – 5'8"
Weight – 153 lbs

History/Origin – Joe is a tough old man, a welder by trade, unmarried. He's been in more than a few fights during his life, and though he isn't always the biggest, or meanest, (mind you he's no push over) he won't quit. Always considering his boss to have been a fair man, Joe decides instantly to take a stand at his side. Joe may not be book smart, but he's street wise and obviously was born to be a welder. If you can design it, Joe can cut/weld it. Joe's nickname comes from his stature as a man not his actual height.

Glad to see you made it here. Good stuff, I might have to work up a couple of characters.

Attention to details. The little things can add up and can be the difference between a good design and a bad one.

Thanks Hk, that'd be appreciated.

Basically I want people to think of this like a public domain, belonging to everyone but with each creator containing control if they so choose. I will be adding content here, I don't know how often, or how much, but I'll do my best, while also keeping MB's Universe Genesis a separate universe entirely. I want this to be setup to protect people where they can use their primary universe characters if they so choose and retain complete control, but I'm going to keep my personal universe a separate entity because I have intentions of trying to do more with it.

So if I post a character here, that means anyone can do whatever they want to it or vice versa?  I would like to participate, but a little slow in the uptake.

 

For example, your character that you posted, "Big" Joe Burns, can be remade or changed or whatever?  Or I have to ask permission from you?

Look where it says "Type of Use". As I understand it, because MB's set this as "Public", yes you can do what you like with him, without asking permission. Does that clear things up at all?

AMS I'm trying to get a continuous universe started with a plethora of content for use by everyone, while trying to give each creator as much or little control over their character(s) as they would like to retain. As Kaylin88100 (thank you) said, because his type is Public, you or anyone else can do with him as you please. If you were to use him I would like to post a link to his new image, and a link to his story under what is already there to give the character a history to build on if someone else decided to use him. If you were to completely re-imagine him, making him white and 35 or a blonde bombshell that would open up the possibility of an alternate universe, like say Marvel and Marvel Knights. What do you think? But if the character maybe lost an arm, the use of his legs or gained superpowers then he would remain within the primary universe and be hold the same base spot he started with. If another creator wanted to make him not have powers, and you where still using him with powers, and yet a third had created an alternate version where he was the woman, spinning off an alternate universe, the aforementioned  would also spin a separate universe, giving us a total of three universes to play in.

 

I hope that makes sense, it gets a bit complicated after awhile, but in practice it would be more expansive than complicated.

 

Edited to add* I would suggest not sharing anything you hold dear at first, just in case. The details will still have to be hammered out, but think of this. Say you create a race of six armed giants called the Nogwons with male and female. Say I create a character based on this race, then Kaylin decides to add a new gender that can mate with either male or female but decides to make it a mental connection or something along those lines. Stuff could grow out of and merge from multiple ideas really giving depth and links between things, like someone else could create a race called the Doggoons who are chameleon-like, posing as Nogwons themselves, in order to infiltrate and wipe out the race. It wouldn't be fare for you to decide to pull the Nogwon race, unless you could get everyone who had created a character to agree, which would open up the opportunity for a mass extinction of the race.

I like the idea of making alternate universe characters of posted characters. That would be cool.

Hmm…a 3rd gender sounds cool…Laugh

I agree that once someone's started playing with your idea, it's not really fair to then try and remove it – it would leave a hole.

I like it headless.

Ok, the original ideal to create a universe still stands, but it's on the back burner for now. I've updated the OP into more of an open resources kind of thing, in which you post something and anyone can use it how they want, whether it's a re imagining, a remake, whatever? Basically this will serve as a public domain for the community.
