Eight teenage (Not to mention gifted) runaways and a very long path across the country

Introduction

UPDATE: Posting has started! I would highly sugest your first post being at the home you plan on running from. REMEMBER: You post 3 times BEFORE meeting anyone else.


It’s the year of 2013. Eight teenagers are planning to run away from home. They don’t know each other. In fact, they have never even met. But they are all from New York and they are all heading to California. The reasons for doing do vary, as do their personalities and ambitions. In fact they have almost NOTHING in common. Almost.

What you do have in common is your powers. You are all telekinetic and telepathic. In more simple terms- you can all move things with your minds and read minds. Even the weakest of you can move light object and sense emotions. But the brain is like a muscle. You need to practice to get better. And being around others with powers makes you more powerful.

There’s only one thing I haven’t mentioned: all of you specialize in something. In other words, each of you can control one thing better than anything else. You may not know how to use it, but this element is easy for you to use. It fits you like a glove. There are many specializations to choose from. These include:

Agrokinesis: Plants
Atmokinesis: Weather
Cryptokinesis: Hallucinations
Electrokinesis: Electricity
Echokinesis: Sound
Geokinesis: Earth
Gyrokinesis: Gravity
Hormokinesis: Hormones
Hydrokinesis: Water
Hypnokinesis: Sleep
Metallokinesis: Metals
Pathokinesis: Emotions
Pyrokinesis: Fire
Umbrakinesis: Darkness
Vitakinesis: Healing

The rest of this RP is up to you. As the players, you will be gently guided along the path to California and I’ll let you know what I expect in posting (Length does not matter, but quality does).

The only major rule is that your 1st three posts have to be BEFORE you all meet up. That way I can weed out those pesky RPers who abandon roleplays two posts in.


And one more thing: Please introduce yourself in OOC before making a character!

Character Portrait: Mira Brown

Mira finally learned what happened to her mother and although she understood who she was, the origins of her powers remained a mystery. Her grandparents didn’t know anything, even when Lucy tried to tell them, they were dismissive. Only one person had the answers, her father.

“Mama, where is my father now?”

“I supposed I no longer can prohibit you from him. And something tells me you are going to look for him,” replied Anita. “Your father lives in California.”

Mira’s grandmother walked out of the room and returned with a shoe box. She placed the box next to Mira. And Mira removed the lid, inside she found unopened letters directed to her, letters from her father, some dating back ten years, and others as recent as last week.

“Your father has written to you one letter a month since you was three years old. I ripped and threw away the first letters, I was angry, but through the years I kept some for you. I always knew one day you would have questions, questions I can’t answer. Perhaps in those letters you can find the answers. But you have to promise me that you will never forget Jeffry killed your mother. I’ve never been wrong about that. Promise me?” demanded Anita.
“I promise,” said Mira.

Mira sat alone in the room. She stared at the letters in the box, afraid of what they contained, for inside were the written words of her father, the letters he wrote since she was three years old, the pleads of a father, desperate to remain a part of his little girl’s life, the written thoughts of a stranger, the penitent confession of a murderer, the secrets of the past, typically carried by the wind through the years, locked away in a box.
She grabbed the last letter, dated from a week ago and read the address:

Jeffry Stern
610 W Ash St
Suite 1200
San Diego, CA 92101

She walked over to the window were the sun shined bright over the Lower East Side skyline, which opened to the Hudson River and Williamsburg bridge and met Brooklyn. She bit the lower part of her lips as her eyes read the address again. The sun rays felt warm against her tense face. And she heard the cold howling winds of winter rush past the window. Did she he have the nerve, could she do it?

There was no second thought, she rushed to grab a travel bag, a carry on, and picked a mix of clothing from the closet and dresser, and folded them into the bag, a pair of summer flats, sneakers, and even strapless stiletto sandals next, and last a small cosmetics bag and iPad, all carefully stuffed in the travel bag. A smiled crossed her face, the thought of going to California excited her. She walked back to the closet and pushed to the side several storage containers, searching on the left wall she pulled off a hidden wooded panel, inside was a peanut butter jar, and inside the jar was a stack of cash. She counted the money, a couple of hundred dollars, but not enough to get her to California.

Anita was back at her sowing machine, her foot pressing against the pedal, and her hands carefully guided the fabric under the needle. Mira walked past her into the kitchen. She knew her grandmother kept the purse in the kitchen, and there it was on the kitchen table, in the usual spot next to the sugar bowl, napkin holder, and salt and pepper shakers. She grabbed it and opened it, pulled out a credit card, and set it back on the table.

“What are you doing?” asked Joshua.

Mira was startled. Her grandfather falls backwards and lays cataleptic on the kitchen floor, after a spontaneous effect of her power hurled a toaster oven at him, hitting him on the head. She didn’t know he’d come home. The sowing machine stopped. She was suddenly at a loss. Frighten. Was he dead, did she kill him? The silence in the room was palpable and almost audible. Then the sowing machine started up again.

Mira made her way back to her room and grabbed her bags. She grabbed the letters in the shoe box and tossed them in the travel bag, almost crushing them, and hastily sneaked past her grandmother and exit the apartment. She didn’t bother to wait for the elevator and ran down the stairwells, jumping several steps at a time. Once outside she stopped a cab.

“Where to?” asked the Middle Eastern cab driver.

“Grand Central Station.”

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

It has been somewhat dead but I think it can be revived.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Thanks but quick question is this still going or did i die?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

I'm very very sorry to hear that. As far as I know no significant problems were caused by your absence other than the rp slowing down a bit. Once more I'm very sorry and I hope that you're better now.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

OMG i am really sorry about not posting but i got into a fatal car accident during christmas resulting in the death of my younger brother (RIP SAM) and i was in intensive care for a while so i got my brother to post for me but i guess he missed some. I ever sorry for any problems it has cause :(

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

I think the holidays didn't help our cause. I'm actually interested in a sci-fi/fantasy game RP, which I hope to post soon. If you guys are interested I'll post a link here?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Well...damn..I really hope those two return, even the GM has vanished. "Sighs"

But if you guys are looking to play people with super-human abilities, my friend has an RP similar but it's based off a tv show. No knowledge of the show is needed, and it needs people.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

As has inara. And what's worse her character is driving.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Well littielbirddogmint has vanished. :( So I dunno what to do.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Sure, Chulance, maybe i could be getting mugged and you guys could help me?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

I'm sorry guys the holidays and family trip(s) kept me away, and was too busy to seat and write. Please forgive me. I hope we can continue? I added my post.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Orange There driving where is arakune atm, maybe we can set up some sort of meeting?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

any chance there is room for one more?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Chulance, and Little. Would it be okay if I had Arakune meet up with you two?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Rainbow, I have Wale driving aroud with Rheanne. But if you want I can have him stop by Mcdonalds for food, and meet up with him, maybe he can run into Trey again XD, use his powers.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Yes, I'm fine with people having the same powers. Just make your character good.

And if anyone wants to meet up with Jamie, he is waiting at the Mcdonalds inside the NYC Amtrack station.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Same here, could others join and use the same ability but in a completely different way than you would think?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Hey guys - My names Airanea and I was thinking about starting up a Chara for this RP if you all are still looking for some players?
I was wondering if more than one player can specialize in the same element or do they all have to be different?

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Heads up guys, I am currently on vacation so posting may happen daily or not depending on what the Rents have planned for the day.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Right now, I'm just waiting on Mira. But I'm the only one waiting at the moment, Anyone else feel free to post and have your characters mingle a bit. Until more people meet up, posting is going to be pretty laid back.

Re: [OOC] The Runaways Original

Alright lbdm it is haha.
