Transformers Universe MUX

No time like the present...


For Halloween 2013, we introduced 4 dystopian worlds (and 1 bonus world), each ruled by a different faction. Befitting a Halloween TP, things on these worlds are a little bit darker, with the Bots and Joes a little more oppressive, and the Cons and Cobras unrestrained by the actions of heroes. Unlike the Shattered Glass universe, these universes are NOT a mirror -- players will play their same characters, just shaped by different circumstances. As such, aside from a few TP characters, most people won't need separate logins for their What If? characters (although they are available if you like) - simply bring your regular characters over to the What If? worlds and start roleplaying!


  • For Bot World, the con groups led by Starscream and Shockwave decide to work together to try and take out Prime. Without Prime, they reason, the Autobots will fall apart, having been weakened by millenia of peace.
  • For Con world, the survivors of the Ark Massacre have formulated a desperate plot: Get to the Space Bridge in Polyhex, make a jump somewhere, and destroy the Bridge terminal on the other side. They've lost hope for Cybertron, but if they can find a safer world, there may be hope for a fresh start.
  • As for what happens in the Joe world, a hodge podge group made up 'malcontents' plans a demonstration against they see as the totalitarion authority of the Joes. Things go from bad to worse as the event turns into a mass riot that threatens to destabilize the US, and maybe the whole world.


What If Worlds

Alt-Junkion universe



At a pivotal point in Cybertron's history, the young Optimus Prime manages to defeat the Decepticon Leader Megatron in single combat. Without a strong leader to unify them, the remaining Decepticons quickly turn on each other, breaking into small warring bands. Now, only Polyhex remains as a bastion for the Decepticons. Cybertron is relatively peaceful, and due to Autobot explorations, the planet is once again rich with Energon.


The Autobots' desperate attempt to launch the Ark ends in failure, and the majority of Iacon's inhabitants are permanently off-lined. Megatron reigns supreme over Cybertron, as well as many other worlds conquered by the Decepticons, now truly an Empire. The few survivors of the Ark Massacre live beneath the surface of the planet, determined to survive no matter the cost.

Deadite universe


After the conclusion of the Second World War, General Robert Savage speaks to the newly formed United Nations, and stresses the importance of not only a world diplomatic force, but a policing force. The General is placed in command of the UN's security forces, which are named G.I. Joes by the people. Under the Joes, peace is maintained and strengthened, and even though there are still seeds of discontent, the Joes faithfully and honorably defend the principles of peace and justice.


The United States was greatly divided during the Vietnam War. During this time, a young man sees his chance. Ten years after the war's ending, the paramilitary organization known as 'Cobra' seizes control of the government, having covertly established strongholds in every part of the country. The Cobra Commander now controls much of the Americas, having forged a strong alliance with the USSR. The remaining US patriots seek a way to reclaim their home.

Quintesson World

The Quintesson World universe is one in which A3's revolution failed, and the Quintessons still control Cybertron.

Witwicky World

Sparkplug - patriarch and mechanic. Follows the Autobots on the news occasionally.

The Witwickys are your average family from Oregon. Patriarch William "Sparkplug" Witwicky and son Spike Witwicky witnessed world history when their oil rig was attacked by the Decepticons. Sparkplug briefly thought about volunteering to help the Autobots, but the fear of losing another family member a mere three years after losing his wife led him to let someone else handle the new alien visitors.
