Earth-27 for Nitwits is a book containing rules, guidelines, trivia, notes, spoilers and other Earth-27 related stuff.
The Rules & Guidelines Edit
Rule #1: No Time Travel Edit
In Earth-27, time only ticks forward. Time might be slowed, sped up, stopped, or bypassed but it cannot be reversed. As a result, some characters’ origins may have been reworked to allow them to feature in Earth-27 (such as Booster Gold or the Reverse-Flash). The decision to do this was to establish a world with real consequences and to avoid messy time travel storylines.
Rule #2: No Access to Parallel Earths Edit
Similar to above, for a reason explored in the narrative, Earth-27 is part of the multiverse but is also isolated from it. In fact, it’s part of its own fragment of reality where there exists its own versions of dimensions such as Heaven, Hell, Olympus, Azarath, its own speed force, etc. But in its own pocket multiverse, there exists no other Earth except its own. As a result, some characters (like Power Girl) have different origins or are omitted entirely by design.
Rule #3: The Timeline is Alive Edit
As time ticks forward, stories happen in an actual timeline that can be measured and witnessed as it progresses.
Rule #4: Power is Finite Edit
Similar to Rules 1 and 2, there is a story reason for why things are different in Earth-27. Some characters (such as Superman) have drastically different power levels than they do in other continuities. Other characters may have different powers entirely or their powers may work in a totally different fashion. This is all by design.
Guideline #1: Death is (often) Final Edit
As part of Earth-27’s commitment to making a timeline with consequences, character death is rare and when it does happen, it tends to remain that way. There are some exceptions (like Jason Todd) but in those circumstances, there are usually very serious repercussions that come with it. Characters coming back from the dead is an exceptional event and is not something regarded as a certainty within the confines of Earth-27.
Guideline #2: Identity Crisis Edit
Characters in Earth-27 may have different personalities, be involved in different relationships, have different origin stories, or even have different superhero identities. While most characters should remain identifiable or familiar, there are a number of exceptions. Also has composite characters (a fusion of one or more characters, usually condensed into a single character).
Guideline #3: Expect the Unexpected Edit
Due to the compression of all the above rules and guidelines, and to help Earth-27 stand on its own, we advise you not to ever expect a certain outcome. Things that seem to be a multiversal constant may not hold true in Earth-27. Different kinds of Kryptonite exist on Earth-27, speedsters can’t time travel, Superman cannot fly at lightspeed or survive the vacuum of space indefinitely, Batman and Green Arrow were trained by the League of Assassins (and may have killed people during that time), and Lex Luthor is a well-respected businessman and recently elected President (despite Superman’s insistence that he is up to no good).

The Earth-27 / NeOlympus Connection Edit
NeOlympus itself is not built upon the idea that the gods came from a world where there was an immortal caveman roaming around or that Zeus had sired Wonder Woman, therefore in "NeOlympus" itself, there is no connection. At no time in the course of the events of that story do I intend to have the events or characters of E27 be referenced (unless I throw in a cheeky Easter egg) and should you read about characters like Circe, assume that is closer to the traditional mythical character and not Wonder Woman's old foe. Likewise, there is an Atlantis in NeOlympus, but you won't find Arthur Curry and Mera ruling there, instead you will find Poseidon and Triton instead.
Yet... In Earth-27's continuity, the past events of NeOlympus did happen and the Gods of Olympus did retire from Earth to take up residence in Elysium, but some gods like Zeus, Ares, and more still visit Earth and have some resources still invested in Earth and its survival or exploitation.
So, at this time it is fair to assume that in my NeOlympus stories, Earth-27 does not really exist; but in Earth-27, the stories of NeOlympus are more or less canon, especially in regards to the events that transpired before the gods left Earth.
