The world of Gotham by Night is our own, only darker. There are no superpowers. There are no aliens, vampires, elves, or gods. Batman may be a highly trained, very smart, Olympic-level athlete, but at the end of the day, he's only human.
Skill levels should be in keeping with the character's age. Intensive training, especially in combat, from childhood is rare and should have a good reason behind it. Batman was the first costumed vigilante. Others may have been long planning to seek justice or revenge, but he was the first to put on a mask and take to the streets. There are no children of retired vigilantes following in their parent's footsteps and no Pros stopping in from Dover.
Any introduction of (or changes in) involvement or connection with a character currently in play must be okayed by that character's player.
As was Batman Begins
, Gotham by Night is a reboot and a reimagining. Characters should not be packing along steamer trunks full of canon continuity baggage. This is an opportunity to take them back to their roots and let them grow in your hands. Be creative!( Bio form in here! )
