Roleplay / Radio City

Go To

Radio City is a Play-by-Post roleplaying game on This Very Wiki, whose GM is Saturn. This roleplay focuses on the heroes, villains and other superbeings living in the titular town. It is also the third iteration of The Evil Mastermind Roleplay.

The Radio City RP provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Absurdly Spacious Sewer: The sewer outside of the museum is large enough for Zad'k, Stalwart and Jethro, to have a brawl.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Beastmaster: The Zookeeper, Liontamer and Birdman all have this as their schtick. Zad'k has this power, but it's limited to aquatic and semi-aquatic life.
  • Building Swing: Several heroes with grappling hooks and similar devices are capable of swinging between buildings, while Gum-girl can do it with her gum.
  • Cat Girl: Darktail, along with being an Expy of Catwoman.
  • City of Adventure: Radio City is home to numerous villains, heroes, superpowered individuals, and all sorts of weirdness.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Stalwart's powers come from his fluted armor - without it, he's just a mild-mannered museum curator.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: The Thespian has knowledge of everything that is posted in the thread itself, making him Genre Savvy.
  • Gravity Master: Jordan has the ability to manipulate how gravity affects him/her.

  • Le Parkour: The heroes and villains who can't fly, jump, or shoot out grappling lines really have to improvise in order to get up from ground level.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: At least thirty, with about half of them being heroes.
  • Master of Illusion: The Mad Mr. Madarch is a master illusionist "Distraction Expert".
  • Me's a Crowd: Multiplayer is capable of creating up to fifteen clones of himself.
  • Most Common Super Power: Several of the female superheroes clearly had lots of calcium growing up, including the aptly named Bombshell.
  • Ninja Maid: Literally, as Lycoris is a woman who was trained as a ninja in Japan and works as a maid at a cafe.
  • Noun Verber: The Lion Tamer and The Dollmaker.
  • The Oldest Profession: Despite dramatically improving the avenue he lives on financially, Gold Dollar still facilitates this. He is a pimp, after all.

  • Roof Hopping: The city's brimming with heroes, and quite a few of them patrol the rooftops. It's how the Gentleman Avenger and Black Orchid met.
  • Starfish Alien: Madarch is apparently the descendant of normal mushrooms, evolved to the point of sentience.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Instead of super powers, Taya knows how to make things go BOOM.
  • Vigilante Man: Most of the superheroes are effectively vigilantes, instead of sanctioned law enforcement.
  • The Worm That Walks: The Birdman of Radio City is capable of splitting himself into a multitude of birds.

How well does it match the trope?
