Introduction

**Character Submission is temporarily reopened for Novato Modifieds. If there are any questions feel free to PM me!**





A New Breed?
GM: Celedia / Assistant GM: Zukuto

In 1990, Jynthic Synthetic laboratories decided to begin their first trials of a new genetic modification program on human subjects. The first batch of subjects was irreparably damaged. The second batch, however, proved promising- a small group of children ranging in ages from newborn to 12 years old. The genetic modification process was arduous but the children did, indeed, exhibit evolutionary enhancements that could not be replicated exactly but the end result was the same.

The children had all been modified in some way, in a study to see if supernormal powers could be induced.

We've all seen the movies and read the comics. The idea behind super powers ranges greatly. Bitten by a radioactive spider? Genetic mutation? Personal trauma or tragedy? It allowed the idea that outside forces could induce human evolution so the scientists decided to try this in a sterile setting. Some of the children proved to take more easily to the enhancements and thus, became more powerful or had a more versatile ability. One child had the ability to manipulate objects with his mind; another had the ability to project images upon a flat surface, much like a movie screen.

In the year 2000, the government somehow found out about this laboratory and closed the facility, citing ethics and the children were either given a stipend and allowed to leave freely or moved to the closest state orphanage, depending on their age.

Fast forward to the year 2011. The government has once again found a research facility that has somehow found the records from the dispersed Jynthic Synthetic trials and is recreating their experiment at an alarm speed, with no regards for ethics. The subjects are kidnapped and experimented on, sometimes modifying more genes than the relatively few isolated genes that had been okayed by the first lab.

This new lab, Novato Inc., has been cranking out a veritable army within its compound and selling the people out like slaves to the highest bidder. The government tried to storm the facility but was pushed back by the modified humans and after months of trying to handle the situation themselves, the government finally decided to seek out the humans from the first trial, from Jynthic Synthetic, to see if they would aid them in their fight.

Frequently Asked Questions!

Q: What type of superpowers can we have?
A: Try to keep it reasonable and not be overpowered. We present to you an informative website for your perusal! If you have any questions, feel free to PM either Zukuto or I. We only ask that you please try to vary superpowers in regards to other characters.

Q: How many superpowers can we have?
A: We ask that you stick to two, maximum. One major and one minor. Examples of major powers would be telepathy, any of the 'kinetics' (atmo, umbra, etc). Minor would be things that don't really have an every day defensive or offensive use. Like omnilinguism- knowing every language.

Q: What types of characters will you allow?
A: Right now we are accepting test subjects from the first facility, Jynthic, and government agents. If you wish to submit a character from the second facility, Novato, please PM me for more details since you will technically be on the 'bad' side. ;) We need to fill you in on some details.

Q: Is there a maximum number of characters we can have?
A: Please only submit a maximum of 2 (two) characters!

Q: Are we underwear on the inside or on the outside heroes?
A: Please, for my sanity as well as yours please keep your underwear firmly located in/under/behind clothing. We are going for more of a X-men theme than a Kick Ass theme.

Toggle Rules

  1. No Godmodding- No auto hits, no blocking every blow or evading every bullet. That's bullsh!t and will be monitored. We're playing superheroes but even the characters in the movies get knocked around a bit. Battles are more epic when blows are actually dealt.
  2. Please put your location at the top of each post. Nothing fancy, a simply [Jynthic Labs] will do.
  3. Romance and violence allowed- Please keep it PG-13.
  4. Post minimum is at least 2 well written paragraphs. If you consistently post less than that you may be asked to leave.
  5. If you are having a conversation or something similar, create a joint post with the other writer and notate it at the beginning of the post. Example- [Post co-written by Writer 1, Writer 2]
  6. Fill out the character profile entirely before submitting it
  7. Please try to use correct grammar and spelling. We're not expecting perfection but if our eyes twitch trying to read your posts, we may all have aneurysyms.
  8. Respect the GMs and each other in both IC and OOC. We expect there to be drama and tension in the IC but any blatantly harassing posts will result in a swift kick to the head.
  9. If you have to leave the RP for more than a week please let us know, either in OOC or in PMs. If you are gone without letting us know we will kill your character off in a horrific and possibly bloody fashion. :)
  10. Swearing is allowed. Excessive swearing is frowned upon. If you curse every other word for 7 sentences then I am going to worry about your vocabulary.

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

I been busy, but was just clearing it for myself XD. I'll try to post soon, although anyone else can post before me =p.

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Hahaha, I wasn't excepting anyone to respond to my post. Post away, post away.

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

well alrighty I been buy but I also didn't know I'll post soon

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Supposed to be the next people.

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

uhhh I am assumming Edd (Varanus char) is waiting for one of the agent to evaluate his power...or can the next person show there power.....O.o......

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

posted! (Sorry for the delay)

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Alright, Well I'll make a post soon with some NPCs. :)

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

LOL! Sorry, it wasn't your fault at all, Varanus. I simply hadn't found the time to do even small posts until now. So, I'm sorry the IC post is so short but at least it gets things rolling again! I've kidnapped Soki's character into the Jynthic post so we'll most likely be co-writing a short post next. If anyone else wants to stage or showcase their powers as well, feel free. Remember there is a whole team of scientists and agents viewing the practice field so I'm sure we can fit more than one battle at once. :D

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Oops. My apologies if I'm holding up the posting. I'm in no rush but I'll be more than happy to make another post with NPCs to speed things up, if that's preferred?

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

alright I got a general idea of how my fights are going to work and also it helps give a general idea on how my powers works too for those who know...the agent probably won't know though

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Varanus actually is sort of locked in place since he asked my one character, Greg, something.

>.<

Once again, I apologize! I will get to posting soon! Also, for the skirmishes I suggest we NPC it so that it goes faster. We have... how many people to show off their talents? =D

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

The supers, if you will, are supposed to take turns showing everything they can do so that everyone can strategize. Also, it will help lead to team synergy among them. The agents are simply watching and taking notes.

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

hmmmmmmm.....>.>, is the agents character going to have a mini skirmish for Varinus...or is he suppose to npc that O.o

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Sorry! I know I have been horrible and not updating but it's been a crazy week! >.< Forgive me! I will try tomorrow after I get home!

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

hmmmmmmm.....>.>

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Awww! Have a fun weekend, Animality and thanks for the heads up!! I doubt many people will be around with it being a holiday weekend! :D

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Just a heads up, I haven't seen my boyfriend in two months and he's visiting this weekend. >3< So it might be awhile before I post, if at all this weekend~ <3

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Well I'm in no rush as my weekly routine keeps me busy here and there also. So no pressure from me, haha.

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

I will echo the past few posts and say that I am sorry I cannot update until probably Thursday. Hectic schedule + playing Nurse to the boyfriend after his oral surgery = no time for me!

Re: [OOC] A New Breed

Augh I did it again. Haven't posted for a bit--sorry sorry. I, too, am pretty busy, but I will get to that today, for sure, I promise.
