Now, I noticed that while there are clubs for Mad Scientists, Air Pirates and Old Scoundrels, none of those societies is fully dedicated to humanity's noblest aim: World Domination!

But what is the point in acquiring knowledge, riches or weaponry and then not using it to destroy those less visionary than you? All that wonderful gear, and you can't use it against those fools, or nations, or planets that mocked you?

To all Criminal Strategists, Mad Scientists, Steam-Powered Buccaneers, Mad Cultists, Abominations against Nature, Crazed Despots with Superweapons, Gym Teachers, Conspirators in Smoky Rooms, Spring-Heeled Crooks, Gentleman Thieves and Elephant Killers, I say: Let's unite! And together, we shall get bulk discounts on Explosives!

Evil shall triumph over Good, because we Cheat!

We shall not get foiled again!

Now, I don't classify myself as a villain; however, I applaud you for being one. Villains are always my favorite.  Cheesy

While I am an Airship Pyrate, I am also a villain through and through.  Let's face it bad guys have more fun (and in most musicals have better songs). 

We would of course have to setup some ground rules for meetings in order to ensure everyone's safety.

1) I would recommend video conferencing from our secret lairs for society meetings, that way none of the "good guys" will be tempted to take out all of us in one fell swoop if the location of the meeting was ever leaked.  This would also keep us from trying to destroy the competition.  This world is only so big baby!

2) You should come prepared to give a brief overview of your current world domination plan (if you have one).  This way we can make sure logistics are worked out and we are not stepping on each other's toes.

3) I really think we need to work on a different name.  Great Villian society names are an acronym/word (Example: SPECTRE: SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion or HIVE: Higher Institue of Villainous Education).  Currently that would make the society's name NSVMAE, and that is just a mouthful.  What if we went with RUST: Ruinous Users of Steampunk Technology

Thank you. When my soldiers take over the States, I will see to it that you'll be spared.

1, 2: Excellent points! My minions are hooking up some direct-current telegraph systems to a standerd Cryptographical Engine as we speak.

3: RUST sounds good. I will threaten a moderator to change the name of the thread.

Just a few comments on the above:-
1 - Lucky I have my video-conferencing gun all sorted then!! THE WORLD WILL BE MINE ALONE!!!

2 - Surely because we're evil and villains etc we HAVE to tell EVERYONE our plans just before we fail to kill them??... Not that I'd ever fall for that, oh wait drat now I mentioned my video-conferencing gun!!! P.s. whats wrong with stepping on toes?? 

3 - Hmm it would need to be catchy and not in the slightest bit silly!  We'll probably need a uniform for our armies as well, oh and poison tooth pills... flippin eck this is sounding expensive already!!!

I think if you, Subvillain, go back to the first post, click the "Modify" link, and then change the title of the post, it will change the title of the thread and the default title for all subsequent posts. It's certainly worth a try, anyway.

I am a villian, for sure. I never studied at The Rube Goldberg Institute of World Domination. I acquired my BEv. via the NZIOABAAWYPTD (New Zealand Institute Of Actually Bloody Achieveing What You Plan To Do). I plan to actually conquer the world, not just try.

How about the Republic of Evil Villains, Empirists, Ne'er-do-wells and Gentleman Exploiters.

And I'm afraid there is just no room for you all to take lead roles in my tyrranical plans, but feel free to add your names to my minions list.

We do not HAVE to tell EVERYONE, just HAVE to tell our personal heroes when they decide to make a damnable nuisance of themselves when trying to stop us. After we have captured them of course.

As for the stepping on toes, it was only a suggestion.  i would hate for one of our plans not to succeed due to an involvement by a fellow devious mastermind.  i mean I expect the heroes to but into my plans, but other villains is just plane rude.  I would hate to be forced to kill you prematurely.  I still have uses for some of you.

Speaking of other rules, I would recommend going to the URL below and reading the list, as it has plenty of danm good advise.

 Ah.

 Excellent. Excellent.

 Thank you all for revealing yourselves. Now I've got my list nicely filled out. Oh! Er, um, everyone, would you mind sending me your real names, addresses, and various alias that you go under, plus photos of yourselves in frontal and side profiles? It's for... err... umm... yes! the mailing list! Yes, that's it, my mailing list. So go ahead and send me your information, would you?


 Also, that Evil Overlord list is derigeur, but may I point that that you guys should really look into the works of a certain someone named Neil Zawacki? Andre de Guillame is another interesting writer upon this subject as well.

 Also, how do I get in on that bulk rate explosives, that sounds like an excellent endeavor.

While I wouldn't say I was a real villain, I do make a fine lieutenant or squad leader. Large, tough as copper silica alloy, strong, and smart, though not so smart to try and overthrow you in the last moments of the critical battle with the hero whom you only barely outmatch so I can take over your organization for myself and have the secretary bring ME coffee.

But even as a minion I have to ask, why stop at only one world? There may be countless others in the aether void that separates the stars, why settle for a rather mediocre planet with an aged sun?

OK I liked my R.U.S.T, but I think my vote is going to B.A.D.A.S.S.E.S.
I think I want to be one of the B.A.D.A.S.S.E.S. more than a B.A.D.D.I.E.  it would seem you would get more women as one of the B.A.D.A.S.S.E.S.
