Super Hero Rp
This is what I had in mind:
The year is 2076, 7 years after the first case. A new viral outbreak which grants… alterations… to a certain humans genetic codes. Around 1/10000 of the population are like this, each with a unique variation. Some with the ability to start fires in their hands simply by generating friction, others could control liquids even use their own body water as a weapon. There are even those who can control the very plants and earth you walk by every day, moving rocks and boulders even a tree's branch to bring an apple to their lips. Some can use the electrons in the air, bringing enough of them together to form electricity with enough they could hurl bolts at you or coat their hands in the same electricity. If they came in contact with an electrical circuit they could draw power from it or even overload it a class 3 could possibly draw the power from the outlet without even touching it. They could also blow out a computer monitor if they didn't control the electricity they naturally hold in their body. In one case an 'electronic' had a seizure during which he emitted a large amount of electricity he blew out a city block. There is another one as well, though these are less common and are mostly referred to as 'mutts' these people can transfer their conscious into the primal part of their brains, essentially they revert back to their animalistic state. Different 'mutts' have different primal talents for instance one could gain the characteristics of a dog or another could have the ability of flight by the growth of wings, some could camouflage themselves to hide in their surroundings some could grow a shell or a protective covering. The more common basic traits are an increase in speed, stamina, strength, or mental prowess. Though some could get stuck between man and beast not fully human not fully animal, but they still cannot shift back to human so they maintain some of the qualities of their primal state. These are some of the most basic but indeed complicated powered beings as they are hard to understand and the process is impossible to replicate.
Generally, most people get strong when they practice their powers. The less you use and practice it, the weaker you are.
Fire Manipulation: The ability to use the power of friction to cause roaring flames or to simply light a stove. They seem to be able to survive extreme amount of heat.
Water Manipulation: The ability to manipulate waters and the ability to control all 3 stages of water
Earth Manipulation: The ability to manipulate the Earths rocks and minerals
Wind Manipulation: The ability to manipulate the Earths winds.
Electric Manipulation: The ability to manipulate electric currents and electrons in ones own body.
Mind Channeling: The enhancement of one’s mind to the degree where they can read minds, lift objects without physically touching them, and make others go slowly insane. The Draw back from all of these abilities, is you take a lot of focus. Once you are hit by an attack your focus is dropped and whatever you where doing stops, so if you are hit while levitating a boulder, the boulder drops.
Plant Manipulation: The ability to grow plants extremely well, and oversize. They have access to the knowledge of the many healing properties and poisoning properties of many plants.
Shapeshift: Not to be confused with a Mutt, a Shapeshifter is a being that has the ability to change to an animal or person.
Animal Instincts (mutt): These people can convert their conscious into the primal part of their brain whilst retaining their humanity somewhat. Different people will have different primal functions one could have the qualities of a dog some could have the ability of flight or even the ability to camouflage themselves like a chameleon. Some might get a boost in speed, strength or even mental prowess. These could be some of the least deadly powers or even the most, some can control it others are stuck in between in a state between man and beast.
Some members of the government watch these people with a close eye, and are rumored to abduct infected people. Others welcome them into societies with open arms. As for the infected, some choice the path of good and live normally in the world, while others see themselves better then the rest and bully others around them.
Every Infected (us) has a choice to try to live normally, help others or the flipside of that......be the ones causing trouble. I give you the choice of your character, power, and how you use it for the world.
Would anyone join this. I was thinking of adding some important people and organizations. Any and all feed back is welcome :D
I'm interested as well. That part though about plant controllers becoming healers/poisoners is nonsense though. If they gain that knowledge, why wouldn't electricity manipulation gain an understanding of physics or something like that? I like that there isn't much other stuff to criticise, I instinctually do that on most threads like this.
I'm interested as well: this superhero rp seems to take a more scientific approach to the concept. Put me down on the list!
So far we have 7 people, 8 counting LoneWolf. My advice; it would be best to begin working on an OOC :) I've seen fantastic rp ideas get broken due to a ton of people and not enough organization.
That's an interesting idea. What if instead of the ability to be focused on plants it instead grants the person wide range of understandingon a particular subject?
