    Default A New Rumblers League?

    I should probably have asked this earlier in the pandemic, but better late than never...

    This whole pandemic situation has left me with a lot more free time than I would normally have. I'm working less, seeing other people from outside my household/bubble less, and there are less things to do due to shops/services/sports etc being closed down or limited - and it would seem that's going to continue for the short-term future at least (even though things ARE starting to open up gradually).

    Therefore, I'd have more time than normal to run a Rumblers League (with limited time having been my biggest problem previously - as it also resulted in a limited supply of incentive and patience).

    It WOULD come with an indefinite limitation, however - and it's a big one: It would still be a live action only league. And I'll provide multiple reasons why that would be the case:

    - Live action keeps the power level more restricted/less silly.
    - Opening the character/item lists up to multiple sources (comics, video games, animation etc) would make the lists unmanageably huge.
    - There have been hundreds (if not thousands) of worthwhile additions to the live action multiverse since we last did a league - both in terms of characters and items - so there would be plenty of stuff to keep things fresh (think MCU, DCEU, other non-Marvel or DC comic book movies, the Monsterverse, Sonic the Hedgehog, a wide variety of comic book TV shows, Cobra Kai, The Walking Dead, countless horror movies etc etc etc).
    - It's much easier to mentally picture characters interacting when they're all live action.

    So would anyone be interested? If not, no worries, but I thought I'd ask, as I imagine a few of us could do with something to pass the time right now.

    Well, I'm still not that up to date on live action franchises, but I'll still show up.

    I'm in for another go. Also for some reason I like the Live Action versions a little more than the comic ones. I know. It's weird.
    And with that the rest of the Domino's will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.

    Not a vote for myself joining, but one would assume that with live action works there'd be a bit less digging through back catalogs for feats and such too.

    I'm interested. Also I have done additions to the Rumbler's league draft additions page over the last year or so

    So hypothetically if this gets off the ground, would we be rebooting the Rumbles League lists, or would we be starting from what they last were?

    Glad to see some interest - and from a number of familiar names.

    I'd simply take the lists from the last live action league, use them as a basis from which to start, and we'd add to/amend them accordingly.

    So, here are the old lists (characters and items in one thread).

    In due course, what I'll probably do is start a thread for amendments of the existing lists, then another one for additions to it - we'll do it step by step to make it as least confusing as possible.

    So, new question. What are the rules about media where Live-Action and cartoons overlap, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit? or Space Jam?

    EDIT: Or songs, where everything is unseen?

    Let's make it simple: anything that could feasibly appear in an animated movie - courtesy of the fact that they are meant to be animated - is not valid for a live action tournament.

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit, for instance, is described quite specifically as a "live-action/animated" movie because some of the characters are explicitly meant to be animated. They are, therefore, not live action by default.

    Do we want to start the lists?
