Go To
Earth is beginning to make a name for itself.

On twin planets far away an unrest is brewing as tales of a world of soaring heights and deepest lows piques interests in both friend and foe. It has the potential to be something like New Genesis or Apokolips with just a little guidance or display of force. Meanwhile, those heroes and villains on that little planet, Earth, are just now learning of the machinations from afar.

This is the backdrop of Gods Among Men is a Play-by-post RPG based on the The DCU. Not to be confused with Injustice: Gods Among Us.
