Alright, thanks!

1) I can't think of a name.  I have this kind of trouble all the time.  Does anybody have any ideas?
2) They sound good.
3) I'll keep an eye out.
4) Well, we need game masters and players.  Participants should not be bound to these roles, and should be allowed to switch as often as they want, just not in the middle of a session.
5) Their last post seems like the most reasonable edit fix.
6) People could form guilds, and we could have separate threads for each guild.
7) Stat-based is easier to play, but requires more setup time, and may limit players.  However, it seems to me to be the best way to play.

Now, I have a few questions.

1.  Do we want to limit the races that players have at their disposal?  Would creatures such as Octoroks be playable?
2.  What about alignment?  Will players have the option to play an evil character?
3.  Are we using the d20 system, a percentile battling system, GURPS, or something of your own design?
4.  Will major events in one story affect every player?  How do we get the word out if a major event occurs?
5.  Concerning items; inventory and weapons are a must, but how do we work in legendary items, such as the Master Sword?  How do we prevent godmoding through items?  How will Mushrooms work (health restorative, like in Mario & Luigi, or as a stat booster, or a size increase item?)  Which items from each game series will appear?  How will they work together without being redundant? 
6.  How about XP?  Will characters gain levels?  How will stat upgrades be utilized?  Will a character gain stats every level?  Will stats be the traditional STR/DEX/CON/INT/WIS/CHA formula?
7.  Maybe we could stockpile this information in a new thread, like a player's handbook.

Zelda splits its timeline.  One tmeline starts with Ocarina and goes to Twilight Princess, and the other goes to Wind Waker.  This leans to the Wind Waker story.

No problem; I'm god at adapting to change.
The cataclysm three years ago had left me scarred.  Maimed, mutilated, and scarred.  But I'm a survivor, and surviving's what I do best.  After losing my right arm, I had thought that I'd never be able to shoot a bow again.  That was before the Hyrule-Mushroom Kingdom Alliance.  After that, a mechanically-gifted Toad offered to make me a new arm.  The arm had served me well, but still needed routine tune-ups.  So, here I was in Toad Town, which was still in the transition phase between Mushroom and Hylian design.
Wanted posters are scattered all over the place.  Most are the faces of those who panicked during the cataclysm and killed somebody by accident, or went looting after the Gorons had the misfortune to end up here.  Really great introduction, guys.  Most of these people are good at hiding, or their court cases were too recent to take the posters down.
However, one wanted poster crops upp more than any other, and the culprit is nothing like I've ever seen.  He stands roughly 7 1/2 feet tall, with a spiked turtle shell on his back.  If half of the campfire stories aboutt him are true, he can also breathe fire.  The message under his pictur reads as follows.

Bowser Koopa, former King of Koopas
Wanted for First-degree murder, abduction, theft, and harassment
Believed to be unarmed, yet known to be dangerous
Believed to be working alone.
Wanted Dead or Alive
Reward- 10,000 coins/ 3,000 rupees

So, he's the reason I'm out here today.  After my tuneup, I'm checking out this "King of Koopas" for myself to see if he's worth my time.  I figure that if...
Wait.  Down that alley...  What are those kids doing?  Is that....?
Is that the holy Triforce on their hands?

Name: Draco
Species: Zora
Age: 15
Class: Ranged Specialist
Physical Appearance:  Nothing notable, except that his right arm is artificial.  It appears ar a metal arm coated in wood with a hole at the top of the wrist and a switch on the bottom.  The switch lights a small fire at the top of the hole, and the hole dispenses arrows.  The fire is optional, and he prefers not to use it, but keeps the feature just in case.
Voice: Unusually soft, but deep enough so that it stands out in a crowd.  His vocal chords were damaged during the cataclysm, warping them so that his voice in no way resembles the original.


Anything I'm missing?

So, I think that we should open up a couple threads to play this.  We cold have signup, play, and rules; we haven't delved very far into that area.

You could base a fanfic off of that premise.  I'd read that.

If we take the multiverse theory to be true, every possible outcome of every event that ever transpired happened, and coexist apart from each other in the form of parallel universes.  Now, if an event with two possible outcomes occurs, the scenario looks like this:
/ \
u u
t t
c c
o o
m m
e e
1 2

However, what happens under these conditions?
M   Z
A   E
R   L
I   D
O   A
/\ /\

A possible outcome from each would occupy the same space, and no one knows what would happen afterwards, or if such an eventuality is even possible.  My theory is that the two world would merge with each other, thus setting a background for the story.

In the Mario Universe, a series of events transpire which results in the creation of the Mushroom Kingdom.  Their peoples moved forward very quickly in the realm of technology.  Conversely, a series of similar events occur in the Zelda Universe, except for one major change.  This change generates Hyrule, and its magic-dependent denizens.

Three years before the RPG starts, the two worlds collide in a cataclysm which devastates the two worlds, a post-Ocarina-era Hyrule, and the present Mario Universe.  The end result is the death of thousands, and the combining of the two worlds.  The two civilizations elect to combine their knowledge in both technology and magic in order to survive.

All races exist in this story, but the Mario Brothers and Princess Zelda were among the casualties of the cataclysm.  The Zelda world was during the events of the Shattered Hyrule era, but before the Great Flood.

Any questions?

We could try for a crossover of sorts...

Although I'll concede the weapons, most races are typically evil.  Unless you're looking for a plumber kill-fest, most races won't work unless we Paper Mario the story.  Classes will be an issue, but they aren't necessary for an RPG.  Overall, Zelda seems much more ready for the traditional RPG format.

This is less of a class, and more of an OC I designed.  His name is Nori, and I suppose his trainer class could be listed as PKMNTrainer Nori. 

Not much is known about this mysterious traveler, but he sends an awful lot of calls from payphones.

Zelda probably has the best RPG potential, due to the multiple races, ease of maintaining a single character, and weapon choices.  Pokemon is doable, but can be tough to GM.  Mario is okay, but does not give many options.  Metroid, Kirby, and Starfox are basically impossible.

I loved this game, but I could never beat Aquas!  I never even got to see the boss, I was so terrible at that level.  Still, I cleared the easy side of Venom, so that counts for something.
Hey, does anyone have tips for beating Bongo Bongo?

As awesome as that would be, I am unaware of any.  However, I have a couple dice sets on my end, and would be happy to participate in a game of your design.
