  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace.

 "The Animorphs are circling above the confusing events down below. Piccolo and Batman are hovering, as Asuka fights Godzilla and the Khan fights Akuma."

Actual quote.

 "Ok, so, need to ask... Just what, the hell, IS THIS. It is overflowing with awesome, is this an rp that is, essentially, one massive battle royale (with some rp segments) between all the forces of awesome that this world has ever and never seen?"

Yes, that sums it up pretty nicely.

These games hosted at the Giant In The Playground forums are part Mega Crossover, part MS Ting. For one reason or another, a random assortment of characters from fiction have appeared in the world of a series considered to be poorly written (traditionally Twilight or The Inheritance Cycle), frequently with some motivation to kill its main characters. The game ends when all main characters of the work are dead. Sounds like a Hate Fic, except that interactions between Player Characters can make up a significant portion of the plot, to the point where the series being "lynched" is little more than a backdrop.

Over time, the "kill all Mary Sues" aspects have softened, to the point where some players will attempt to defend the canon characters, and some may be left alive at the end of the game. A game has even been run for The Lord of the Rings (which the players generally hold in high esteem).

Originally each game took place in a separate continuity, with no interaction between them. Unless you're Deadpool.

  • I can't help the way I am!

Although as of game Twilight III there has been something of a Continuity Creep leading to the games becoming part of a multiverse.

The first game is currently being transcribed into a Fanfic, which can be read here.

The game that started it all. Modern day monster hunters from all walks of life descend upon Forks and Volterra in order to combat the Cullen Coven of vampires and their allies.

Twilight II

The floodgates of crossover madness are opened as the endless battle against the Cullens comes to Gotham City. Instrumentality, the emotional spectrum, fallout from the time war and old Gods seeking to reclaim their long lost thrones ensue as the city falls apart in the chaos.

  • Giant Space Flea From Nowhere: Adam the First Angel, which was being kept in the Batcave.
  • The Chessmaster: Too many. Wednesday, Edward, The Seventh Doctor. This leads to...

Twilight IV: No More Heroes![1]

Basin City, the worst of the worst that the multiverse has to offer is the new home to the Cullens. There were no heroes here (until Sanya showed up near the end) only varying shades of monsters, who would notice a few more? Unfortunately this time it isn't Edward making the insane plans to save their asses it is Carlilse and he has a few tricks up his sleave including those not of this world.

 "That's right, he had a dragon in him."

Cquote2.svg
  • The Plan: V pulled off a truly spectacular one against The Authority, killing off almost the entire roster, and if not for circumstances beyond his ability to forsee, he would probably have won. Light attempted one against The Authority, and whether he succeeded or not is really a question.
  • The End - or Is It??: Nicodemus was killed, but The Devil promised him another life. And very soon afterwords, the Devil allows Sam his true love back...
  • Recycled in Space: Kohaku ends up taking care of a serial killer locked in the basement of a mansion, while the residents feed on her blood. Again. Strangely, she was put in this situation by players unaware of the events of Tsukihime.
  • Shout-Out: Too many to list. The Game Master loves these.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Nrvnqsr was finally killed by a large-scale airstrike of Hellfire missiles and napalm.
  • Where Are They Now? Epilogue
  • Wicked Cultured: V, doubling as a Cultured Badass. Carlisle also gives off this vibe, particularly when he has a talk with Kirby about the nature of evil. Nicodemus counts as well.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Nicodemus attempts to invoke Not So Different to a priest by making him doubt his methods and calling him a hypocrite. The priest is named Alexander Anderson.

Twilight V/Eragon III: When Worlds Collide

Edward in his never ending quest not to be horribly slaughtered comes into possesion of a Keyblade and forms an alliance with another desperate keyblade weilder Eragon Brassom and Organization XIII. Conspiracies abound and mysteries that span infinite Earths seek to destroy the players before they learn the truth much less come out victorious.

NPCs:


  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Blade and Mickey Mouse have promised they will do this at some point. May not occur due to Blade becoming a Nobody.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Wednesday. Just Wednesday.
  • Darker and Edgier: We made Sin City into a site of hope and fixed the world, giving hardline antiheroes a real shot at redemption, and we made 'Our ship runs on Happy Faces' Kingdom Hearts into a war without end against a terrible enemy that the forces of light are slowly losing, and the heroes are slowly losing faith and giving up, one by one. A Crapsack World and how!
  • A God I Am: Wednesday, though he gets a pass as to actually being one. Raistlin can't back it up quite so much up against Wednesday, but the rest of the time gets by.
  • Crisis Crossover: Combines both traditional settings into one game.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Every character from a previous game was gassed by Odin in a truly spectacular Kick the Dog Moment.
  • Mythology Gag: The villainous faction is composed of characters from previous games.
  • No Fourth Wall: Deadpool remembers the events of previous games he was in.

Vampyr Assasin

A Gaiden Game started when the DM for Twilight VII was away for a week. Instead of trying to be serious and dramatic the game was designed for pure silly fun. The secret Government Organization BUCKLER has drugged and kidnapped a group of unlikely heroes and dropped them on the Vampyr Castle-Mech that is actively destroying Australia.

Twilight VIII: Future Imperfect

The White Council fell during the Tower War, and in it's stead Molly Carpender took up the Blackstaff and rose to power. Uniting the Knights of the Cross, the remnants of the White Council and conquering most of the world she brought forth a new age of magic and science. The Age of the Britannian Empire. Of course her reign is tainted by the emerging superpowers of other magical nations and the increase in technology elevating the common man to the same level as the average wizard. What could she be planning with that little burnt book with a picture of pale hands clasping an apple and what will the world do to stop her?

Twilight IX: Of Wolf and Man

By far the strangest game in the Lynching-verse. This game took three D Ms with three very different visions and levels of knowledge of the various source material to come together into one outstanding train wreck of a game. With the rotating themes of Badass Normal folks caught in a conspiracy, Sequels and I dunno whatever the Hell you want, let's end this game and move on already this game was surely a sight to be seen but will never be mentioned again.

  • Badass Normal: Every PC.
    • For strange and somewhat contradictory definitions of Badass and Normal.
  • Mole in Charge: Nick Fury, Ultimates version, has apparently put a large portion of this together to cover up his more-then-shady dealings with the Cullens.
  • Odd Friendship: Daredevil's a blind lawyer brought up in Hells Kitchen, with a strong sense of morality and a string of psychotic and dead girlfriends! Green Arrow's a billionaire playboy from a destroyed world who dresses up like Robin Hood and shoots arrows! They Fight Crime!
  • Logic Bomb: John uses a... interesting variation of this.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: It's mentioned All There in the Manual that Richard Rahl was sent to the world of Nineteen Eighty-Four, where he is being made to accept a consesus reality.
  • Shout-Out: Samuel L. Jackson has a Lightsaber. A purple lightsaber.
    • Not to mention rode in on a motorcycle, shirtless, while firing two guns.
  • The Hunter: Baby Bonnie Hood, Cassie Hack and John Chesse all have this to a certain degree when facing monsters.
  • Too Soon: Due to lead time between planning and play the fact that Japan has been reduced to inhabitable rubble by natural disasters in this game seems a bit insensetive so soon after the Tsunami and Earthquake.
  • War for Fun and Profit: Destro is a firm believer. And Nick Fury seems to share his passion.
