As the title implies, what is a Sliver or Silver is it, idk? I have seen it around and still have no idea.

The Sliver's are this sites version of the doom patrol and are the last remnants of the Role players that were here before we got here. Therefore, they're like Nightwing and were all Robin. They succeed us and are APPARENTLY much more powerful than all us combined...

I don't know how you got to that conclusion, but let me explain.

The Slivers are a group formed by a few heroes in town, like JaK said there are some RPers in it who have been here quite a while and even were Titans at some point. (Simca and me). Next to that we've got Shadow and Apache to back us up. We're just a goup seperate from the Titans and that's it. We fight crime just like you all do, we just didn't wanna be Titans again.

And JaK.. We are in no way more powerful.. my character might think so, but that's just who he is.

For me, this Slivers are a bit more different then that. Do correct me if I'm wrong Krious/Simca.

The Slivers werewhat remained of the old Titans North. Seeing one of them had fallen into the grasp of evil, they knew they needed to work together, but becoming a new group again with new members, new Titans rolling in and out every day, it was not their cup of tea anymore. The more titans, the more possible losses. The recruitment for the Slivers is very elitist.

So far, the two founders, Krious and Simca, both recruited one member. Shadow for Simca and Apache for Krious.

Their goal is also a little different. It relates to taking down supervillain crime as soon as possible, and think before they act if possible. The mentality is more serious, and herein lies their strenght.


And if I might make a side note, every member on here has certain powers and seeks to develop them over time. I can make multiple examples, but if we look at this fact, then it's only logical that those who have been somewhere long will be somewhat stronger. Their character development has happened longer, which does not necessarily make them stronger, but at least more experienced.

The Slivers have the same goal as Titans, but aren't as willing in terms of open coöperation.

Oh well I'm just goin by what SImca's been telling me, which is her char could pretty much massacre us if she got mad enough. Emblem could set the planet on fire and I have a message from her right now that said in it, if Sliver's think Titans are a threat they'd take us down hard. Even your hideout is soo much more hightech than ours it's not funny, Simca's made it very clear that it's pretty much impossible to break into it. While Titans tower seems to have no type of security protocols at times lol

All that kind of lead me to believe you guys place yourself a tier above the rest of us, but if I'm wrong about that nvm. Like I said in my other thread about paying dues, I'm not hating against the idea of you guys being stronger. In fact, I'm all for it because it makes perfect sense.

She can. Even more so than her, Kara can, and Najm would do it very happily. Though I never said 'massacre you all'. I said the 'Slivers would smash your faces into the dirt' and that since Simca's powers depend on her emotional state, don't make her mad. Are you putting words in my mouth? X.x

Quote :

You probably are. Don't put words in my mouth. I said city. City. And he can.

In both cases, can is the keyword here. Just like Krious too, can teleport all over your ass and go ninja-y on you, cutting your neck off in a single slash of his Switchblades before you can even react. Also, what's stopping Primarch Joshua, Kara and Dan Yat from overturning the whole of California? Heck, evil Kara would actually benefit from doing that. Ben Tennyson, like you said s yourself, can turn into an alien suitable for almost every situation. Every character can godmod. But what can be done is not what is going to be done. I've told you that several times before.

Quote :
Aand I have a message from her right now that said in it, if Sliver's think Titans are a threat they'd take us down hard.

Of course they would. Like I said in that very same message, they're the answer to 'Who watches the watchmen?'. If they believe, and have constitute evidence to believe, that the Titans are going Emblem on them they will take them down. Simca doesn't want another Titans Tomorrow (long story, don't ask) and she is especially fearful of the Titans going rogue. They're allies, yes, but only as long as they have the same goals: protecting Jump City.

Its not impossible to break in. Its difficult to. And there is a reason why. Pardon my rudeness but you weren't the one who spent 2 years in the Batman Beyond era. And every Tower has security protocols. You can't blame me for using mine when you don't use yours. Sheesh.

Glad for you to confirm that, but really, I'm pretty sure no one here is without their firm set of weaknesses, and even if they lack that they are expected not to godmod in their fights. Check out the Krious vs. Emblem fight (it should be on here, somewhere, I think it was entitled You Got Beef?). Both of them hold back and work in symphony with one another so that no one is godmodding and no one is holding too much back, giving us a very well conducted and enjoyable little piece of battle-themed literature.

I advise anyone reading this: learn from that.

She thought it was good! Very Happy Yeah!

Oi Krious, you got beef again? I'll bring the meat!

Seriously though, I talk to Krious a lot, but a few simple PMs can do the trick. He wanted to do this Sherlock Holmes battle calculation, I just wanted to put things on fire and destroy stuff. We both did so and enjoyed the twists and turns. Talking happened as well, as Krious tried to find out what the hell has happened to his old friend.

Not to be mean Sim, but that wasn't really a defense. It just confirmed what I said in different ways lol.

And I'll say it again, I have no problem with you all being able to do all of that stuff at all. I was just saying basically, that Sliver's are probably as matched as both Titans teams together that's all by your decriptions of them. Sorry if it sounded accusing, my tone of voice can't be translated on I-net, but you'd find I meant it in a matter of fact kind of way. Not a and can you believe they can do this fashion.

Jak, I don't think she was trying to defend, I think she was trying to say we aren't as godly as you make us sound. O.o Don't really know how to put it into words, but the tone I'm getting from you is 'they're more powerful than us' when Simca's trying to say that we could be, but then so could you. The Slivers are slightly above you in that we have experienced members and are kind of more serious in our crime fighting. Not because we are more powerful.

No offence meant at all, and if I'm wrong, Simca or Krious say something please. ><

It really amuses me that a simple question has already turned into a debate. xD

Thank you everyone for all the feedback on this. I now have a better understanding of this. But you guys can continue the 'debate', cause I find it very interesting on this topic.

Dea could most certainly hold her own in any given discussion with those older than she was, but there were also times when Dea knew that silence was golden. Or perhaps, it was simply her mischievous nature that awakened from time to time to cause a little unexpected mishap upon the "older" kids....

Hearing all the voices amongst the discussion, Dea's small head peered around the corner to quickly size up everyone involved. She would most certainly be punished for this, but there's some things a seven year old just couldn't control... such as causing a little chaos for the sake of pleasing her arrogance.

The fingers to her left hand began to twitch as her amber eyes began to glow brighter. Within moments, the same fiery hue illuminated within her small hand which tingled with the growing fire within her palm. With a playful giggle, her hand shot out from around the corner of the wall to send several small sparks of fire across the room to set each and everyone's britches on fire! How she would've relished in watching their reactions and to see the revelation across their faces when they all discovered they were caught unawares by a simple child using the element of surprise

But although Dea was a daring little girl, she wasn't stupid. She ran for the exit of the thread as fast her feet could go and took to the sky to hide herself within the clouds....leaving anyone to hear her merry laughter echo within the wind....


ooc: I'm sorry! ^^ I just had to let her do it!!

^ Well thanks for taking the seriousness out of the conversation haha.

But ya, well that is just my take on the Slivers obviously it's open for debate a bit, but I pretty much view them as the Doom Patrol or the Outsiders. Just my opinion, doesn't have to be taken as fact maybe they're not uberly stronger powerwise, but that's just how I think you guys personally present them to us (IMO) But, as I've said you don't have to agree with me or take what I'm saying as fact, it's just my take on them.

Correct, I just didn't want to go in on all the detail.

In the end it all comes down to what Simca already mentioned. Give each other a chance, don't be selfish in your posts and account for the other person that's RPing. No matter how powerful you are, our goal here is to have a balance. After a while I got to know how OP my powers actually were but I hold back on them as much as I can even if i don't like it. I think it's like that for all the Sliver and although I agree on the part that we've completed our titans life and moved on to the next level I don't consider us more powerful. Some of us do indeed have a lot more background to fall back to, as I, for instance, have over 2 years of character development.

Even though you say it's just your take on it, you don't make it sound like that.
