Not a Hero

Not a Hero

0 INK

Super Powers are a normal thing, its pretty well accepted. Every 1 in 5 people have some sort of gift. Some gifted become Heros, far too many though are becoming Villains.

863 readers have visited Not a Hero since VyxnMoon created it.

Introduction

Marthos is a place for the unique to live freely, to be themselves. This is the world we live in.
In the world we know super powers are a way of life and with that comes heros and villains.

Though we are known in our relatively small galaxy for lots of reasons; from our clean air and water, to our longevity and medical break through, for our technological break through and the nifty gadgets that come with we are really known for our 'Power Guilds'.

There are guilds for powers; grand temples for those who are called to protect and serve, small humble homier buildings for those who heal or are nature minded, underwater glass domes for those who are sea or water related, dormant volcano fortresses for fire. Then there are the unseen, dug deep into ground where those, no matter their power, go when they are…Evil.

Yes, this is normal. It how it has always been. Hero’s who fight and villains that destroy, doctors that heal, vets that appear before owners even know something is wrong, teleporting messengers, psychics, and mind control. Normal, unhindered, accepted.

But… Nothing is perfect.

There are those who have no powers and are radical in thoughts about destroying the ‘mutated filth’, there are dictators with powers that use them to make their people’s lives hell. There are Hero’s who refuse to help and there are powered people who hate their gift.

You’re probably wondering “How can they hate their power?” But how would you feel if you could communicate with animals, literally draw them to you just by living, and you are terrified by them? Or with you were in a house fire as a child and after puberty found out your gifted with flame? Scared of heights but can fly? Fastest man alive if only you could stand much less walk?

There are special schools for those who’s power is useless or frightening to them but most scorn the students there.

As the world has aged and grown we have become more selfish and less caring, Hero’s have dwindled and Villains have grown. One in particular has grown well known, he has a plan. Unknown to all but a blind and mute prophet at such a school for the Scorned. Darkness is coming and sometimes heros are found in the unlikeliest places.

Marthos is the fourth largest planet in the Martrix galaxy, five planets away from their overly large sun they are safe from the blistering sun and has allowed a large population of human refugees from Earth to live there comfortably. The native Marthos people were very much like Earths humans in shape, size, and looks with their power filled eyes being the only difference. As the decades past mix breeding had happened quite thoroughly meaning two powered parents might have a human child just like to human or non-gifted parents can have a gifted child. The only thing that really stayed true was the eyes. You can always know if someone is powered by their eyes.

Marthos has six main cities, one for each main hub or reign of the world.


Image





Hub Puu/ City Kasvaa: Known for its large mountains and forests, produces most of the herbs needed for medicines and is known for the large forest animals. It produces most of the food needed to feed not ony its own people but those in all the other Hubs as well. More people powered in nature, animals, or healing come from this Hub than anywhere else.







Image





Hub Posidian/ City Vesi: Mostly Ocean, it has about twelve small islands scattered in the middle. This Hub produces some of the best jewelry and fish cuisine in the world. The people here are very outgoing and this Hub is known for its dangerous deep sea creatures and the fact that it has the most water, weather powered and shapeshifters. Rumors suggest that the only way to any of the islands is with the help of a native, or the ship will crash.






Image




Hub Kipinä/ City Liekki: Gleaming gold hub, special black trees, dark skinned people, and of course the eight giant volcanos all but one are still active. This hub produces some of the best armor/weapons along with their capable mining skills with brings gold, silver and other precious metals and stones to other Hub. Known for their fire and air powered along with electric powered and super strength as more come from here than anywhere else.





Image








Hub Ei/ City Yksin: This Dessert Hub isn’t known for much, known mostly for being the home for Nomads. Psychics, Prophets, and Mind controllers are most commonly from this Hub. The peace of the dessert makes it an ideal home for them as it helps them stay sane. It is a common punishment to drop criminal in this Hub. If they make it to any of the connecting Hubs their crime is forgiven and they are given a pension.




Image











Hub Tumma/ City Valo: This Icey tundra of a Hub is known for its candles, soaps, and cloths that are either cooling or heating. Outside of the beauty of the ice in the winter and the diamond like glow in the summer, this hub isn’t well liked if not for the wonderful smelling soaps and candles due to how six months of the year it is pitch black and known as winter and the other six the sun never sets and it is called summer. More shadow and light along with heat and cold powered come from this hub than any other.




Image












Hub Varattu/City Ihmiset: The largest Hub of them all this whole area is a giant city, much like that of New York except it would take three days nonstop at the fastest pace for you to drive from one side to the other. This is where people like to flock, it is known for its great medical, fashion and technological achievements. This is where the most powered are born every year, some types of powered are only ever seen born in this Hub like super speed, teleporting, and Illusion.

Basic good versus bad, except with a twist.

At Koulu Halveksittu, the school of the Scorned, we are the Powered that really wish we weren't powered. Anywhere of having a phobia of our power, traumatizing experiences associated with it, or simply cant use it due to physical disabilities. We are the students no Powered wishes to teach or any parent wishes to have. We are the failures no one pays attention to.

And yet, according to a prophet at our school, we are to be Heros. We are to battle the greatest evil the world has yet to know and some how a small group of misfits are supposed to fight it. WE are supposed to win, she cant even tell us how just that she sees him doing evil things and then she sees us winning. At least that's what she says. I don't think I believe her. I think she is hiding something.

I know I'm not very excited about this but... We cant let him kill us all and I've see your power. I know what you can do, and it would make me feel a lot better if you came with. I think you just might be the thing to save us all.

Re: Not a Hero

Personally I think we need more dudes. We've got two girls and one guy, if I remember right, so another male character would be welcome.

I could create another character if you're ok with it? :)

Re: Not a Hero

Hey! It's fine! I think once we get five main charries we should start... It'd be hard to get more.

Re: Not a Hero

Hello everyone!! So sorry for not ever posting. Its been hard because my internet went out so I have been posting in the only other RP I'm apart of from my phone and haven't been able to edit my character for here or write up and intro piece. I will write it and finish my character by tonight early tomorrow!!

I love you guys sense even though ive been inactive you guys still keep talking and waiting!

Sorry for the delay.

I love the ideas, create your characters and if I have a problem I will let you know!!

Re: Not a Hero

Hey there, super interested :) I had an idea ive been fiddling around with and I was wondering if it would be alright for me to make a set of siblings (Can't decided whether they would be twins or not yet but it seems likely) and if so, would it be preferable to give them both their individual character sheets or put them both on the same one? Lemme know and I'll get started :) You've done a fantastic job on this RP

-K

Re: Not a Hero

I'm into this! How about a character who can control and hear the thoughts of insects? The downside being that they can't shut out the thoughts they're getting, so their mind is just a big loud mess all the time because there's so many bugs around at any given time.

Re: Not a Hero

Ah spillages, the memories ....

*cough terrible memories push them away!!* (me being the clumsy one who spilt drink on their own lap !!!!)

:P

I was wondering if there was perhaps a gender preference? I'm easy going making a male or a female not too fussed !

But it may affect my character personality so any preference?

Re: Not a Hero

Neko is interested!! Power being a combination of enhanced sensory processing and heightened reaction time. Built in downside that essentially normal levels of stimulation for senses would be within the zone of pain or overwhelming.

which would also mean well...fighting will essentially require lots of pain killers cuz pain would be worse too as it's been made "more efficiently aware of the damage"

Also yeah, Neko remembers last date of drink spillage... and Im the clumsy one...other party was shall we say...less than pleasant in their response.

Re: Not a Hero

Heh, that's gotta suck. Poor guy; he must've been mortified. Hope your clothes are ok! Do you plan to go on a second date?

Also I should be able to complete my CS tmrw. I've been having trouble figuring him out and I keep thinking up potential characters for this... which is too many to implement, so I'm trying to decide which one. Kinda weird, really.

Either a flier or a sound-user.

Re: Not a Hero

Wow... Smooth dude, smooth. Funnily enough I've been there before, but with water thank god. Hopefully your clothes are ok! :) by the way, I'm not planning to use her power that often, and she'll train just as hard as the rest. Most of the time, it'll seem like she doesn't even have a power because it will only work if someone were to throw a knife at her or something like that on purpose. So battle is when it matters, but she only uses it as a last resort, and there are plenty of ways for someone to accidentally be killed in battle. For example, if someone were to dodge a knife and it hit her in the back, or she got in the way of a sword meant for someone else. So technically she could sacrifice herself for someone, because the one wielding the blade wasn't aiming for her. But she'd only be able to die from it if it truly was because she cared about them and not because she wanted to die. And thanks so much for approving it!

Re: Not a Hero

Sounds wonderful, and I will give it some thought. I will look at her and approve before bed but I just went on a date and need to shower. (he was sweet but clumsy and accidently dumped his soda into my lap...)

Re: Not a Hero

@Vynxmoon I finished my character. I'll try to get some others to join! Also, are you interested in having a co gm? I think the combination above should fit, considering the fact that the character is quite flawed in personality. I hope you agree. If you want more details, there are examples on the character sheet. I did take out a couple of elements that seemed to break the flow of the CS, but I hope that's ok.

Re: Not a Hero

@VynxMoon Hmmm combining Alle9009's idea of functional immortality with your idea of healing gave me an idea. Would it work for her to have immortality, but she can die a death caused by anyone who doesnt want/try to harm her? So basically, she can die if someone is forced to or accidentally kills her, but if someone tries to kill her or she tries to kill herself she'll simply regenerate?

Re: Not a Hero

@alle9009 That's great, I love that idea of functional immortality.

@softball pup, I'm just worried that it's too powerful a gift and that it won't flow with the RP but she's your character. I'll trust you, but if I think her power doesn't work as the game progresses we might need to work together to find a muddle ground that does.... OK?

Re: Not a Hero

@vynxmoon I can definitely do the plenty of weaknesses thing. I'll try and finish the basic idea in 72 hours, but I hope it's ok if I add more as we go along.

@Alle9009 I think the functional immortality would be cool, but one of the plans I have for her character is that she won't ever want to make any friends or grow close to anyone because they'll all die in the end and she won't. I think I will figure out some way for her to die, maybe by giving away her immortality to someone else, but it'll be to the point that it's really hard.

Re: Not a Hero

Ah, its cool! I was just curious because I had this really good anime FC which would make a perfect good lazy pic dude but didn't want to use it in case it RL pics. Hence the question.

Searching for FC now

For immortality, why not functional immortality? Someone who is not able to die anything but a natural death. It means that although they feel pain and can regenerate from pain, any attempts to kill them will just cause them to revive until they die from old age. What do you think?

Edit - Possibly Song Jae Rim. Doesn't have the messy 'bangs over eyes' look, but then again it takes effort to get a haircut...

Edit 2 - Think I'll add another character, only this time healing.

Re: Not a Hero

@Softballpup12 I would like them in within 48 hours and completed within 72, the reason I didn't put any rules (especially about characters) is because I was having a really hard time getting my format to work. Ill add them now. Love the FC but I would prefer no immortality, just because people might take advantage of it (not saying you would of course.)... How about rapid healing/wound-illness impervious which causes slowed aging? I don't want to ruin your idea though so please if you really want Immortality please give her plenty weaknesses....

@Alle9009 Real Life is preferred, I'm sorry for those of you that might prefer anime.
Lazy is fine, Honestly we (those of us wanting to be heros) are a group of students/teachers that don't want to be noticed, that don't want their powers, etc. so he would work.

Re: Not a Hero

I think real people as she did use a real person for hers above.

Re: Not a Hero

Hmm, sounds interesting. I've got a character in mind with superspeed, only he's lazy. Gender is male.

How many characters are we allowed? And are the FC's suppose to be anime or real people?

Re: Not a Hero

Hey, are we allowed to create a character whenever??? I'm going to submit one but I didn't see any rules so...
