n Oopart is an out(O) of(o) place(p) artificat(art), an artifact of some variety that should not be found in a certain area. Like, a gun like design from the 1900s being found among the buried ruins of a medieval castle. Basically, a relic that is where it shouldn't be. Many believe that it's because the design was given to the group that possesses by an alien race or higher power, some supernatural intervention pretty much.
Well, there are more advance ooparts than just simple designs or weapons, but objects with massive amounts of power. Some with the ability to travel great distances in an instant, others with the ability to manipulate a material of some kind, and many others. These are the true ooparts, objects designed by some higher power given to earth to be used for unknown purposes. Some believe that they are the keys to evolution, others believe they are the reckoning of mankind. Hell, even some believe they are merely just the designs to be used for self satisfaction. Whatever they are here for is not a concern for you.
You are amongst the chosen, one who will use their Oopart to help better the world and contact the creators of the Ooparts, it is your destiny.
So, this rp will focus on a group of 4 or 5 friends (including me) that discover a group of Ooparts together, each person getting an Oopart of their own. Your oopart can be a weapon, object, anything that comes to your imagination, and it can have a single ability. Of course, what the ability itself does is open to experimentation, as long as it isn't OP I'll probably allow it.
What you can expect, interaction between the characters with their Ooparts, enemies to be fought, lives to be saved or sacrificed, basically the standard hero's journey that focuses on a group of young adults maturing quickly due to their circumstances. In the end, it'll be a culmination of many things that determine the fate of the world.
The setting is modern day US, probably east coast, Upstate area (New York, New Hampshire, etc.)

Hidden State: (You obviously can't just bring a weapon where ever you go, so the Oopart can take the shape of a pendant or something to be hidden away, describe what your Oopart turns into)
and I'll also be adding my own CS to the mix.
Name: Mia Feral
Personality: As her last name would suggest, she is a very feisty girl that tends to let her attitude and instinct control her actions than her intellect, which is average. She is always quick to anger and rarely thinks before acting, but this is probably both her best and worst trait. many times she'll rush to the aid of her friends without a second thought, but she's also gotten herself into a good amount of trouble because of her fight first talk later attitude. It also made it hard for her to make more friends outside of her circle of friends from when she was younger.
Skills: Mia isn't just all talk, she has the skill to back up her bark. She is agile and strong, so she usually can out maneuver and finish her opponents off in a few seconds, aiming for critical areas. She's excellent at "street" fighting, a.k.a. all out brawling.
Background: Mia was raised by her single father and three older brother. The youngest was 13 by the time she came along, and her mother died giving birth to her. Without a womanly touch to affect her growing up, Mia became a rowdy individual, used to fighting her three older and larger brother to get whatever she wanted. She thought it was good for her, giving her strength and attitude that allows very few people to mess with her, but it also did it's damage.
She essentially grew up living as a tomboy, and never made many friends besides the boys from her neighbor hood, but she lost them soon when they got older and were embarrassed to be outdone at sports and fighting by a girl, so she was left all alone for several years.
During high school, she managed to befriend a small group of people that accepted her and her faults, or at least what she considered faults, but they saw pas that and realized what a nice person she was. Now, she is currently working two jobs and living on her own. She works at a tattoo parlor part time, and also works at a gym for amateur boxers and other fighting sports.
Type of Object: Weapon
Shape: refer to previous pic used
Personality: Vastiel is a very calm individual, which is demonstrated by the design of it's body. While a simple blade, Vastiel weighs a good amount, and proves to be quite a challenge for Mia to wield. This is a good compliment for Mia, as it forces her to calm down and control herself to wield Vastiel well. With this, Vastiel can assist Mia in combat by offering out points and strategic advantages, which Mia is more receptive to as she is more calm when wielding Vastiel.
Power: Vastiel, while appearing to be a simple blade at first, can actually open certain areas of itself up to reveal "thrusters" as Mia calls them. These thrusters are activated through Mia and Vastiel's psychic link, which propel the blade at blinding speeds to strike. It allows for any user to manipulate the blade much more easily and faster due to Vastiel's normally heavy weight.
Hidden State: Vastiel takes the form of a belt buckle when in hidden state.
can't wait to see the CS's we get.
