Plot The first alien to arrive on Earth was exactly seventy three years ago at in Roswell New Mexico in 1947. The saucer that crashed contained an alien infant whom was quickly taken into government custody and brought up as an American citizen. The man code named Magnificent Man debuted on the world in 1967 as an enforcer for the government during the radical period and as a message to any enemies the USA had. Despite being a tool for the government he was also was a force for general good such as stopping plane crashes in midair, stopping major robberies, shootouts and various other crimes. Of course with the emergence of this caped god among men who strong armed for the man in the white house it was only a matter of time before more of his kind began to come. And come they did. Not his kind in species but more men and women in costumes began to pop up all over the world, some of them random human vigilantes and others even more foreign to the world then Magnificent Man himself. As the years went on more and more of the costumed types emerged.....some of then not even bothering to where any sort of spandex or take on a code name. The public of course referred to them as heroes but for all the good they did stopping random thugs, the world soon gave rise to meta humans that were just glorified criminals. A man who robbed banks using the weather, alien doppelgangers who needed to feed on human flesh to survive, women part of a secret cult of so called magi and many more twisted figures and started to become a huge domestic threat. And it’s been that way ever since. Heroes and villains battling it out on the streets. --- Now Meta humans have not become a common place in society in the year 2020 and the public knowledge of being not alone in the universe has been devastating and helpful to humanity. Alien technology from various species both friend and foe have been able accessed to advance industry and medicine like never before. Of course this has advanced weaponry for hero, villain and the military. In recent months the conflicts between the superheroes and criminals (both super and other wise) has grown much more intense, ever since the superhero Bolt executed a serial offender on live television. This has finally resulted in the tipping scale in a long standing debate about the effectiveness of meta humans for enforcing the law thus a new policy has been passed. Only meta humans who are registered heroes with the government can act in lawful manner, vigilantes and super villains will be hunted down and imprisoned in Alcatraz or of course killed if their threat level is high enough. Tensions are high as a meta human war brews among government heroes, non sanctioned heroes and villains. Of course there is far more than meets the eye then a simple super powered civil war underneath the surface. Factions There are many superhero and villain factions in the world but the most known is no doubt the Golden Alliance. The Golden Alliance is the collected form of heroes whom are currently working for various governments and independent agencies all over the world to assist in the containment and capture of other meta humans. Golden Alliance is made of very prominent members of the hero community including being headed by none other then Magnificent Man, you the player can create your own super hero or villain groups for your hero and of course let one develop naturally but you can also be a member of the Golden Alliance depending which road you go down. Classes Class E: It is generally believed that all class E heroes and criminals are 90 percent of the time humans with incredible athletic ability and fighting technique. If they have powers it certainly wouldn't be anything that gave them a boost into anything that would give them The street leveler normally employs things such as detective skills, gadgets, custom cars, weaponry, smart tactics, martial arts and things such as that. But of course none of this is set in stone and you can make your street level superhero/villain however you like. Class: D: Class D is considered the lowest level of meta human. In terms of physical powers they are at least in the 2-5 ton range with endurance and reflexes surpassing Olympic athletes. Their destruction power to demolish a car or minivan and a reaction time to the point they can dodge bullets after they've left the chamber Class C: The class D meta humans are more or less considered to have the destructive capacity a military company.Normally at 15-30 ton strength levels but also various other powers and or abilities could put them into this level. Their durability range varies slightly above that of an average human (for example a slow healing factor or maybe an immunity to bullets but not explosives.) They are going either be much faster and stronger then Class E or have some sort of other powers or gadget that put them on this level. Note: Most superheroes and villains in the world are class E, D or C Class B aka Class 100: Heroes and villains on this scale in terms of strength normally range from 50-100 tons (though maybe a little higher in some instances) In destructive capacity they could probably rival that of a fleet of fighter jet or even a fleet of them and move speeds on par or just above them. Durability varies once again from that of reinforced tank to skyscarper level. Class A aka Magnificent Class: (LOCKED from Player usage at start) This class is of course recovered for meta humans whom can match or rival Magnificent Man in combat or destructive capability. There are only a handful of people and beings on Earth with this level of power would. They are very easily at mountain busters with durability on city scale. It would take multiple heroes of lower classes to take down one class meta human. Final Note on Classes: Don't worry even if you pick a lower class you can still fight against higher classes if you play it smart with tech or exploit the environment or weaknesses. It should also be noted that there is no rule or anything when it comes to the powers and the class you pick. The classes are pretty much to get an estimation on the level of your skills and or powers. Powers Types I’m going allow you all to be very free with these options, any powers or anything like that you want you can use as long as it’s not game breaking or anything of the sort. So of course things like telepathy, super strength, super speed, master of various martial arts, pyro manipulation or just ANYTHING! Anything you've seen in the comics or movies or in your head is free for you to explore Of course there are many types of way of executing these skills or well more example how you use your powers. Science: Are you able to harness the powers of an ant because of a freak lab accident or perhaps you're a genius inventor who's made a power suit. This type is a true and blue science hero who uses advancements tech or the gifts they were given in a weird turn of events and things of that nature or maybe you were experimented on. Birth: This is pretty self-explanatory. It means your meta human gifts come from birth as opposed to any accident or training. Is it possible you come from a family who are secretly the descants of a race long forgotten or perhaps you can control ice due to a genetic mutation? It is up to you how you want your character to have been born with his/her abilities. Magic: For all those fantasy and magical buffs out there of course is the mystical power set. Maybe you were taught spells and combat magic as you are part of a secret order of mages or perhaps you discovered an ancient artifact that gifted you your abilities. This is a class for the player whom loves using fantasy wizards, cackling witches, magical superheroes and hardboiled occultists. Alien: Do you come from an alien species and get your host of powers from your out of this world origin and gain your abilities from there. Note: Some of these power type classes can be used together and that will be further explained in the CS's Alcatraz Alcatraz in this world has been redesigned and greatly expanded into a meta human prison for the worst and most dangerous super human offenders with various cells and pods dedicated to keeping single prisoners on maximum lockdown. The prison guards are all humanoid drones all nearing Class B in terms of power. No meta human is yet to escape the compound which Characters You'll be allowed to play as a superhero or a super villain. Basically there are three categories. Golden Alliance/Registered Hero: This is a superhero who has registered with the law and abides by the strict government policy to capture and contain super villains and vigilantes. You will also be a member of the Golden Alliance which is the strongest superhero force on the planet. If you play in the class you will be allowed to attempted to arrest other heroes or may get ordered to so but you will also have much more resources. The Golden Alliance tries to keep eyes on the street with various heroes doing legwork (or flight work) and drones that monitor criminals of all kinds and the streets. Vigilante Heroes: Superheroes who refuse to work within the law or side with government such as a hero who doesn't mind killing if he makes a bust (even if the enemy has given up) or meta human who isn't to keen on handing over his life to the Golden Alliance and the government. With this you'll be your own man but hunted down by both police and the GA plus likely hated by the public due to negative media. Super villains: Or do you wanna just play as a good old fashion super crook who is in it to win it! The mad doctors, the super bank robbers, the greedy fellows rich businessmen, meta thugs for hire or any kinda bad guy you want to tell a story with. Starting The game will begin in Alamance City a city in the Northeast which was help constructed with the meta human in mind. It is a utopia rivaling that of New York in terms of skyscraper size and due to it being home to many of the heroes (Alamance, New York, LA and other major cities are where they tend to be stationed). As this city was designed with the super humans in mind the city is the most advanced city in the US currently. But as it is a hot zone for meta humans it of course attracts the more nasty types.....which will bring us to our intro, which for a supehero game is probably the most cliche start but a classic way nonetheless. You can be either visiting or live in Alamance But as you go about your daily business of either super heroics or being normal out of costume you will be faced with a very rude morning surprise. CS's and Character Real Name: (PM it to me but keep it blank if you want to keep identity from players as well but if not feel free to post it) Age: (If ya want) Code-name: (Your superhero or super villain name) Costume appearance: BIO: (Up to you how deep you want to go into it) Class: Power Type: (What is your main power type) Secondary Power type: (This is optional but for example if you wanted to have an alien who had a combo of the powers from his homeworld and from a science accident or someone born with a genetic mutation of mystical powers.) Powers: (Simply give a detailed a run down of the powers your character has be it spells they can use or the super strength they have or the ice they can control. I'm alright with your character having a combination of powers just as long as you don't do anything insanely overpowered) Skills: (Things such as martial arts, detective skills, cooking, great at math etc) Specific weaknesses: (You're allowed to keep this part secret at the start but pm it to me if you have one besides the obvious ones such as family and loved ones or just being beaten to death) Vigilante hero, Golden Alliance or super villain: (Which are you?) RULES Same ones as always No God mods or insanely over powered powers but still be creative and if you have a power youre unsure we can make it work! No auto hitting No controlling others characters without permission Be respectful on the OC (Feel free be wild in character of course) You're allowed to have Class B heroes and or villains but your CS will be more heavily reviewed (for obvious.....heavy duty stuff) You can play villains but know that the primary focus will be on the heroes starting out so I'd suggest having a hero as well PM me the character sheets. I love when players have subplots and I encourage you to do as many as you like, we can even find a way to work it into the overall plots if you like! Wait for till for post is up to to post!
