    Default Age of Marvels: New Universe Bullpen



    Welcome to the AGE OF MARVELS: NEW UNIVERSE Bullpen



    What is The Age of Marvels and how does it work?

    The Age of Marvels (“AOM”) is a fan fiction universe and solicitation game started many moons ago by distinguished former CBR mod Mattbib. It has been in existence on the CBR boards for approximately ten years! It has gone through several iterations and has survived forum reboots! It’s a survivor, it’s gonna make it!

    The way it works is that “plotters” write short solicitations for monthly comic books! They steer established Marvel characters in series that they develop themselves, putting together teams, villains, artist/writer pairings, concepts and most importantly creative storylines and playing them out each month through entertaining solicitations. Then participants “buy” the books they want to read! Sounds fun, right?

    These fanmade books share a universe and continuity, the newest version of which is called “AOM: New Universe,” e.g., “the AOM: New Universe Universe.” Its a fresh reboot that started in November, 2018.

    The plotters and editors that make up the Age of Marvels Universe are referred to as "The Bullpen." This Bullpen page is an avenue for plotters, editors and readers to discuss the behind-the-scenes aspects of Next Dawn, to pitch ideas, promote what is to come, show off fan made artwork, ask questions, etc. It's the proverbial conference room, water cooler, and after hour bar - all in one.

    Solicitations are posted once a month. Plotters write up their solicitations in the proper format and send them to an editor before the end of the month. The editor then publishes all the solicitations in a big monthly post. In that thread, readers (including the plotters and editors themselves) choose which books they'll purchase and usually vote in a poll of some kind (book of the month, etc.).

    You don’t have to be a plotter to buy books! All are welcome! If you are a plotter, you may and are encouraged to buy your own titles. There is friendly competition between the titles as there are rewards for top sellers!

    This is a shared community. The Bullpen Team works together to strengthen each other's stories and together we contribute in building a brand. Collaboration is encouraged. Plotters have "ownership" of the characters in their own books. If a plotter wishes to use a character "owned" by another plotter/title, they are asked to run the idea by the plotter that "owns" that character for approval. This helps keep continuity tight and also often leads to plotters working together and making something greater than they may have even originally planned.

    There is a running and updated listed of characters that have been "drafted” to a title. If a character is not currently "drafted,” then they’re available for new books! Pitch ‘em in this thread!

    We are starting with a 2 title cap/limit for each plotter. This can expand through participation rewards.


    Can you join the Age of Marvels?

    Hell yeah you can!!

    First, absolutely everyone can “purchase” books they like in the monthly solicitation thread! No commitment! (And it doesn’t actually cost anything, it’s all fictional money).

    Also, new and interested plotters are welcome and graciously appreciated! If you are interested in becoming a plotter then just let us know. This is an open universe project so to speak. We're happy to welcome new members and will help you get set up with your own title. However it does require a minimal commitment - a short solicitation, once a month!

    Default Solicitation History and links


    This project boasts a long history!

    Our previous bullpen/community threads, since the 2014 forum reboot, can be found here:

    The first post-reboot bullpen: a bold era of restructuring under our leader Highwayguy after our previous work was wiped out in the Crisis on CBR forums reset everything!

    The next, “Bullpen,” spearheaded by our marvelous former E-I-C Marvell2100!

    The 2018 Relaunch’s Draft Thread is HERE.

    The, “previous Bullpen,” spearheaded by Global Honored and the start of our current continuity!

    We have “Distinguished Competition” in the form ot our sister universe, “DC NEXT DAWN.” This is the DC version of Age of Marvels and involves many of the same participants. It’s bullpen can be found here!





    Next Dawn and Age of Marvels also have an OFFICIAL WIKI!

    This wiki is designed not only to be a resource for browsing our creative work and continuity, but also to preserve our solicitations in the event of another forum reboot. It’s not comprehensive, but we do what we can - and wikimaster H-E-D offers metahuman effort!

    Default Rules

    Rules
    Choose the characters, Write the Solicits, Send them to an Editor, Make monthly purchase!

    BOOKS & PITCHING:

    *Each plotter can start with two books. Join at any time!

    *To pitch a book, propose a basic idea, its cast of characters and its creative team either directly to an editor via private message or right here in the bullpen thread! A book begins with a maximum of 13 characters.

    *You can use every single character from Marvel, the MCU, Timely, Icon, Crossgen, or any “Marvel” brand. You can’t use a character already drafted by another plotter without that plotter’s permission. You can create new original characters and they do not count towards your 13 character limit.

    *Before the end of each month, plotters must submit their solicits to an editor. The editor (that’s me) then collects them and posts them in the Monthly Solicitations Thread opened in the DC Forums board.

    *Participants then “buy” the books they want! This is done simply by posting the books you like in the Monthly Solicitation thread. The sales period is one month, at the end of which sales totals will be tallied and posted. Purchases must be in before the end of the month (they are accepted until sales are tallied but not after). Participation and top-sellers earn rewards!


    SOLICITATION:
    This is the standard solicitation set up to send to your editor. Let’s keep it uniform!

    THE AMAZING BOOK TITLE #(#issue number)
    Plotted by YOU_THE_PLOTTER
    Written by AWESOME WRITER
    Art by TALENTED ARTIST
    Solicitation body, containing what happens in the issue. Be catchy, creative and check your spelling.
    32 PGS./ Rated T...$2.99
    (rating decided by you!)


    Commitment

    When you sign up as a plotter, you make a modest commitment to submit a short solicitation every month. We want to accommodate you! We know sometimes you might miss a month, and hey, we’re forgiving. Just let an editor know either by posting in this thread or via direct message.

    However, if three months go by without any communication and no submissions (the old no-show, no-call), a title will unfortunately be cancelled and the drafted characters returned to the available pool. Don’t make me do this, it doesn’t bring me joy!

    Default Rewards

    Rewards

    Rewards are based on a point system! Titles accumulate reward points punch card style through plotter participation and sales victories!

    Points will be awarded monthly to the title itself, e.g., Captain America will have X amount of points - not the plotter of Captain America. You can’t mix and match points either (so if you have two books with 8 points, you can’t combine them to make 16 points). If you cancel a title and replace it with a different title, however, your points from the cancelled title will carry over (so you’re not married to a book if it starts to not work for you).

    You will get:
    *1 point for turning your monthly solicitation for the title in on time
    *1 point to each title you plot when you make your monthly purchases
    *2 points for being the highest selling title that month.

    So any given title could attain a maximum of 4 points per month. I will endeavor to keep a tally of these points in this very thread after the monthly sales totals are done.

    A title’s plotter can cash in its points at any time for any of the following rewards:

    *4 points - “Swapper Supreme” - swap a character, dropping a Marvel character you drafted in exchange for picking up a new one from the unused character pool.
    *6 points - “Hope You Survive the Experience” - get an additional roster spot, allowing you to select one additional Marvel character beyond the 13 character limit to be permanently added to your title.
    *12 points - “Minfinity Gauntlet” - plot an additional 4-issue Miniseries using available characters.
    *12 points - “Worlds Collide” - temporarily draft a non-Marvel/DC character for a maximum of 4 issues.
    *18 points - “I am Amalgam Man” - plot an additional 4 issue miniseries crossover between your AoM book or other available Marvel characters and Next Dawn or another universe.
    *20 points - “All New, All Different” - permanently add a complete third title with up to 13 available characters.
    *20 points - “To me, my Plotters!” - create a highly-promoted “line-wide event” book where plotters of other books have the option of tying in. Limit one per month.


    Miniseries acquire points in the same manner that regular books do. When the miniseries ends, any points it still has will be transferred back to the title whose points were used to create the miniseries.


    Referral Bonus

    Anyone who refers a new plotter, where that plotter then proceeds to submit their solicitation(s) and make pulls for two consecutive months, will receive 26 REWARD POINTS for a book of their choice (or to be split between multiple books).

    Since we’re a shared universe, it helps to have some very basic background information about the setting. That kind of stuff will be updated here as it’s developed by our plotters.

    It is with great sadness that I announce the upcoming cancellation of Old Moon Crone.. The book, regrettably, never found that combination of future AOM-NU setting and Lunella's attitude. The last issue shall be #12 which will be the end of the current "Search for Devil Dinosaur" arc.

    Shame to see it go. I much preferred your imaginative take on Lunella to Marvel’s. At least you’ve still got Fantastic Four, which is a certified hit!

    AoM also has a lot of A-list openings if you’d like to try something different. I could see you doing excellent stuff with a certain friendly neighborhood character, for example.

    I am definitely grabbing another title. Lunella was intended as a mix of Moon Girl and the "old man" schick that all the rage with the kids nowadays. I will take a look at available characters for both here and over at the dawning distinguished competition. But OMC is going out with a bang.
