game canon reconciliation: red lantern roy
For those of you whose characters WERE involved in the whole Red Lantern Roy — the Arrowfam and the GLs — the retcon we’re using is that it was not actual Roy who attacked Kate and Ollie and was then chased down by the GLs, it was a shapeshifter Red Lantern.
This workaround is solely because it was quite a big event in the lives of those characters, but it shouldn’t cast blame on our new Roy. So shapeshifter Red Lantern attacked, was caught, and the GLs dealt with it.
Thank you! :)
Sure, there’s hordes of evil to be stopped, people in peril, outer space battles to fight. But in-between, there’s a full-service cafeteria and lots of other superheroes to talk to.
Looking for a mature, active, one-year-strong DCU roleplay that offers plenty of plotty and casual RP? One where it’s cool if you want to race/gender/sexuality/etc.-bend some DCU superheroes? One with an in-house artist who draws the characters? Come join us in the Justice Lounge!
Bullet point sales pitch:
- minor time commitment, only three comments/posts a week (can be in a conversation)
- curious what it’s like? Check out our archived threads
- any DC comics character (minus the New 52) or DC Animated character (minus Teen Titans, Young Justice, and Green Lantern) is allowed
- there’s art of the RP characters and events and in-jokes
Check us out and consider apping your favourite DC character!
spring cleaning: inboxes
Re: checking your inboxes
Tumblr is notorious for not sending notifications.
Any time you login as your character(s), please make it a routine to check your inboxes as well, even if you haven’t gotten email notifications or little red tags on the tumblr nav bar. You don’t want to miss out on messages for Tumblr’s incompetence and lack of checking!
And on that note, Spring Cleaning is over! Woohooo!

spring cleaning: tagging image posts
As part of our Spring Cleaning, we are putting in a new rule with regards to image posts.
Please use two unique tags: one for your face claim posts, and one for your image posts (comics scans, art, other images)
That way people can tumblr saviour if they’re checking the dashboard at work, or on their phones, or so forth. Once you decide on your tags, please try to use them consistently! Your mods have to get into this habit as well, so we’re all in this one together. =)
Thank you! <3 <3

admin: spring cleaning
We have seen all of our players on tumblr, skype and chatzy interacting with other players, and that is great. However this is intended to be a game for characters, and not *primarily* an OOC social circle. So in the spirit of spring clean-up, in the next few days we will be going through our current character roster to evaluate which characters are still involved in the Justice Lounge world and which are not. Basically, which characters have been interacting and which have not.
This is NOT a hint for you to suddenly start trying to RP your character more in a rush to demonstrate activity! We have a pretty good idea from our tumblr dash/chatzy history about character involvement.
If it looks like you have an absent character, we will be sending you a fanmail on that account. Please log into all of your accounts consistently and check your fanmail.
You may be presented with options for proceeding, dependent on how you have/have not played your character in the past. Please see this not as a punitive measure, but what we need to do periodically in order to keep the game running freely instead of getting stagnant.
*puts on marigolds*
Let the Spring Cleaning begin (and yes, we’ll let everyone know when Spring Cleaning is over too XD).

Hello! We are going to be doing periodic themesets here at the Lounge, for anybody who would like to participate.
It’s just a little something extra that people can play around with if they’d like, and doesn’t in any way interfere with whatever other RPing you’re doing at the time!
Our theme is:
As always, you are free to engage with this themeset in whatever way you like — media of a character that relates to yours, quotes from a literary character that yours is like or relates to, a photoset of your face claim, a music playlist, an analysis of your character’s experiences, a personal narrative from them, canon scans of them talking about fictional characters, a fancast of a movie/book/etc with Lounge characters, whatever you like! Possibilities are endless.
We also suggest tagging your posts with “themeset” so your fellow Loungers can easily search your tumblrs for them if they miss ‘em on the dash, but of course that’s totally up to you. :)
Admin Post: League/Titans Retreat
If you haven’t read Kyle’s announcement, please do.
It will happen this weekend April 12 - 14 in Chatzy.
In addition to it being IC, it will also be a chance to all players to meet-and-greet. The Mods are aware that this game is set up to be a mostly-tumblr RP game, but after a year we have expanded into use of both Chatzy and (typing-only, no vids) Skype group chat.
We understand that ‘live RPing’ isn’t for everyone! This retreat will double somewhat as an OOC mixer for Players as well. You can stay for as long as you like, meet other Players, etc.
Kyle is ‘hosting’ it and I think most people know Kyle? And he’s friendly, so he can help you get acquainted with Chatzy if you’re unfamiliar.
To get the Chatzy password, please contact the mods! (Kyle or Ollie or this tumblr).
Thanks! See you there!

It’s come to our attention that some players might not be using Skype chat for OOC (and sometimes IC) chatting, because they think the RP’s Skype is webcam and mic.
It’s not! It’s just more typing, but in a group chat and (mainly) OOC. If you have a Skype account and/or want to get a Skype account, you do not need to have a webcam or a mic.
We’re all lazy typers here! No need to get dolled up or practice your talking-to-others voice!
If you’d like to join the Skype group chat (all typing!), please drop oodelollie or kylewithenvy a fanmail and we’ll get you added.
