Lost Stars

Lost Stars

0 INK

In the year 2045, when technology and people had made so much progress, when science and engineering had spread of mysticism and belief, one event changed everything. It became known as Lost Stars.

643 readers have visited Lost Stars since LookingAtPerks created it.

Introduction

In the year 2045, as humanity was reaching new peaks and milestones with the development of robotics, cybernetics, and science, the world decided to remind us that there are things science cannot always explain...


When it happened, it was a warm summer day. Everything was nice and peaceful, and people were out without a care in the world. Science had been enhancing lives in the way of robotic assistants, medical breakthroughs, and all sorts of other areas. It was still not some ideal, perfect world, but it was considered to be an age of golden opportunities.

It was considered to be peaceful and happy.

And then, that all changed on that day. When the event that came to be known as "Lost Stars" occurred.

All over the world, day or night, whether the sky was clear or full of clouds, northern hemisphere or southern, eastern or western, the sky became filled with shooting stars. Strange purple snow fell to the ground, scattering itself all over the world regardless of temperature, for as long as those stars appeared in the sky. No one knew where they came from, or where they went in the end, but this was where the world was changed forever.

At that event, a strange phenomenon occurred. Countless people around the world, people who had this strange desire take over them to make a wish on these shooting stars, became marked with a five pointed star on the outside of their left hand, and their wishes came true in the strangest of ways. Each one of those marked received a second, more unique mark somewhere else on their bodies. At first it may have seemed random, but these marks were related in some way to the other thing they received: Supernatural Abilities.

And now, eight years later, the world has become a strange and crazy place. About twenty percent of the world's population is marked. Sometimes, the marked die. Sometimes, new ones are born, their abilities awakening at five years old.

Even though eight years have past, the public are still not all used to the changes that are taking place. In addition to powers, strange monsters now sometimes appear, and other beings thought to be fiction. There are those humans who are jealous of these powers, and try to do anything they can to steal them. Others just hate them all together, not seeing them as human and some of them forming extremist groups to try and kill them all.

Every day holds some sort of new excitement for the Marked, but lately there has been an increase in unexplained activity, crimes, and attacks. So, whether Marked or no, what are you humans going to do about it?

Explanation Time:

So, let me explain a bit about the Wishes, and the abilities that come from them.

First off, no wishes can be basic or simple. They have to have a sort of Pzaz. For example:
[X]I wish to shoot lasers from my eyes.
[O]I wish to have the power to protect.

Second, the powers have to make sense for the wish. For example, to have the power to control nature and plants:
[X]I wish to manipulate others to my will.
[O]I wish to commune with nature.

Third, all powers will put strain on the physical body. This has been given the name Recoil. Light use of abilities will likely have no recoil, at least that would be felt or noticed, but heavier use will take a toll.

Fourth, there is no invincible ability. All abilities have some sort of requirement, or weakness, or limits, or such.

Five, abilities can be wide ranging. They dont necessarily have to be limited to a single thing.


Here are some more example wishes now to get your brains going:

I wish to be a Titan (Could lead to titanic strength or such)
I wish to be lightning (Could lead to super speed or turning into electricity)
I wish to entertain (Could lead to the ability to create illusions)

Re: Lost Stars

MEant to post one. Its what I used after all. Will fix that ASAP.

Re: Lost Stars

Could I have a character skellie please? Sometimes I find it easier to make characters when there is a layout.

Re: Lost Stars

Fun fact, some of the inspiration for this came from Bungou Stray Dogs. Some special effects...I mean, supernatural phenomenon and ability activations may be inspired from that.

The reason for having the Wishes be a bit more fancy is also part of that. :3
