An Inception/Batman Roleplay
Gotham and Batman. A city and its protector. A symbiotic relationship.
Neither can live without the other anymore
The Batman is dead.
With the previously established Batman Inc., many of the world's largest cities enjoyed a period of decreasing crime statistics, an almost golden time for citizens. Yet within the wake of these events, an assault led against Batman by Bane and company have robbed the life of Bruce Wayne's true self. As the battle for the cowl begins, the federal government's secret service understands the need for one of their most valuable cities in the world to have a protector.
In the words of the late Wayne "if Batman never existed...well, I guess we just have to invent him". Brokering a deal with the devil, for a very nice amount of money, they hire one of the world's most skilled extractor teams. This team is all but legendary due to the secretive nature of their occupation but they are the only known men and women to have successfully accomplished Inception. The men in black have found the perfect man to take up the cowl. He has the potential for infinite will, his wealth seemingly limitless, and he has even suffered a tragedy which he has repressed. All he needs is one, very simple but very potent idea to set him off.
The Bat is dead. Long live The Bat.
No, we will not be using the canon characters from Inception. How our would-be Batman looks like, acts, feels, thinks, is under the works but finding a lot of it out is part of the job. The plan, thus far, is three levels deep. One level for his past, his tragedy. One for him becoming Batman. And one for the ascent to becoming The Night. But this is also debatable. Perhaps how the team are going about this will be discussed within the RP? I'm also looking for an experienced collaborator or two, one with preferably a fair amount of knowledge on Inception. Knowledge pertaining to Batman can be null to fanboy-ish. So there's a lot to talk about, obviously.
Have at it.
