Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Providence College for the Future of Heroics

0 INK

As the first generation of 'Superheroes' age, the torch must be passed on to the new guard. But, those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. The solution to that: training courses for superheroes.(OPEN)

1,420 readers have visited Providence College for the Future of Heroics since Robinwing created it.

Introduction

Image
Image

The year is 2030. The version of Earth, mostly like your own. About 15 years ago, an earth shattering event happened. A small tear in the veils between several alternate universes opened. One of these was what came to be known by itself as Universe 252, a mundane world prior. The second was a universe of magic and the supernatural, now called Universe 251. The third a world of highly advanced science and discoveries yet distant to the other two, deemed Universe 253. Though travel through the mysterious Rip is highly uncommon and not yet considered a safe chance to take, it has had other effects.

Soon after the Rip came to be, the ordinary humans of Earth (Universe 252) started to develop abilities never before seen in their universe. Lab accidents that should have killed those caught in them instead granted special powers. The touch of magic started to spark in people's fingers, and people began to witness and prove the existences of Supernatural creatures. It was as if Universe 252 had started to play by the rules of Universes 251 and 253.

This event caused something of a panic. The general populace had, at first, been kept in the dark about the Rip. But when you have abruptly become able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, or your son can now lift a car with ease, it becomes rather hard to keep it hidden. In the panic, something odd happened. In some of the new 'metahumans', the turmoil brought out the worst. Those with delusions of grandeur and visions of domination at their fingertips now had the power to possibly achieve these goals. But, in some others, it brought out the very best. In response to the rise of supervillains, superheroes rose just as quick to defend the world. Those with the determination to defend those who could not defend themselves, to save lives.

However, this was all 15 years ago. Those heroes who rose to the call are starting to get on in years. It is time to prepare for the next generation of heroes.

Thus, the original heroes founded Providence College.

Image

Out in the middle of deep forest, where mishaps are unlikely to cause damage outside the college itself, Providence has been created to help the heroes of the future learn from the harsh lessons learned by the heroes of the past. The college is the first superhero organisation of it's kind, where a large number of the heroes who've risen to provenance since the Rip have all cooperated to found the school. Some have even retired from hero work to become the school's first full time faculty. It's students, being the very first class to attend, are each nominated for scholarship by an existing hero to study here. They may have worked with the hero before, the hero may have seen potential in them, or many other reasons.

And now, the first class of the first superheroics school in Universe 252's history is arriving on campus...

---

To cover all the vocations a metahuman may choose in the line of heroics, Providence offers three different courses. Each student must choose one to major in, and may choose one to minor in. And if they're particularly studious, they can try to sneak into the third's classes if their schedule allows it, and they don't get caught by their professors. The three professors, all themselves famous heroes of the past generation, teach mostly their own majors, but also classes pertaining specifically to their own powersets or experiences, should there be students who need them.

Image
The most common major, combat is every inch the stereotype of the superhero. Fighting supervillains, destroying killer robots, chasing giant monsters back to the sea, all of these are to be the realm of the Combat Major.

Professor - Ma'an Vand
Image
Powers - Hydrokinesis

Student 1 - Elijah Baker
Image
Powers - Enhanced Strength, Written Telepathy

Student 2 - Suzu Haru
Image
Powers - N/A

Student 3 - OPEN
[img]NOTHING%20HERE[/img]
Powers - N/A

Image
The Defence and Rescue Major is focussed entirely on the limitation of civilian casualties during incidents. These heroes work to contain the area an incident covers, move civilians out of that area, and save as many lives as they possibly can.

Professor - Hank Ingram
Image
Powers - Superspeed, some invulnerability

Student 1 - Sydney Baker
Image
Powers - Siren Physiology, Written Telepathy

Student 2 - OPEN
[img]NOTHING%20HERE[/img]
Powers - N/A

Student 3 - OPEN
[img]NOTHING%20HERE[/img]
Powers - N/A

Image
These students may not have the most eye catching vocation, but it is by no means less important than the others. These are the students who invent gadgets, research ancient secrets and develop the advanced theories that the metahuman community absolutely relies on.

Professor - OPEN
[img]NOTHING%20HERE[/img]
Powers - N/A

Student 1 - Nielle Brinn
Image
Powers - Intangibility, intimate knowledge of Universe 251's magic and history

Student 2 - OPEN
[img]NOTHING%20HERE[/img]
Powers - N/A

Student 3 - OPEN
[img]NOTHING%20HERE[/img]
Powers - N/A

Image
Principal Janet Key/Firework - NPC
Image
Principal Key may often appear stern, but if you can name a juvenile delinquent behaviour, she has probably partook in it. She will discipline students for acting inappropriately when needed, but amongst the professors she becomes a firecracker, laughing openly about the shenanigans brought before her. However, when the chips are down, Principal Key is every inch the hero she has always been, determined, brave and protective of her new students.
Powers - Concussive fire blasts

RULES
  • You all know not to godmode or overpower yourself at this point, do I need to say it?
  • Don't just abandon the game midway with no explanation! Nobody likes to be left hanging.
  • Nobody likes a one-line reply. Try to keep around two or three paragraphs at least.
  • This roleplay is set at a COLLEGE. Higher education. That means the characters are aged from at least eighteen years old.
  • Even so, I'd prefer to keep this at an acceptable maturity level. Feel free to curse, within reason, but try to keep things around PG13 to Teen rated.
  • Please use live action face claims for your characters, and include them and your powers idea in your character reservations.
  • This setting has elements of both scifi and fantasy, magic and advanced science, while in many ways oppositional, do coexist. Whether or not your character believes in them both or not is another question. But if you wanna play a cyborg ninja? Go for it! You wanna summon dragons out of nowhere? Be my guest! You wanna do both? Carry on, my wayward Genji main!
  • We're all here to roleplay and have fun, so enjoy yourselves and be excellent to each other. *Bill and Ted pose*

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Character submitted! Let me know if anything needs to be changed.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Ok Sounds good. Kid is over at Grandma's for another hour or so, so I'm getting down to work! :D

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

That'll be great! Just a heads up, we're moving house soon so my internet is a little bit spotty at the moment, I may be slow to reply.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Thank you! Sorry it took so long to get back. I finished my work placement on Friday, and they were so impressed with my work they asked to stay on full-time! Woo I'm super stoked.

I know the CS are taking a while. Honestly, I'm very upset with myself they are taking this long, but I will -for sure- have them both completed by Friday before I go to bed :D

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Oh, the titles come from here:

http://www.1001fonts.com/

Just type in the titles, and pick your colour. There are other sites like this one, but this is the one I tend to default to.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Ok no problem Robinwing. I am working on my character sheets when I have time. I had family here for the long weekend, and my two year old is just being a two year old this weekend. Not napping and not sleeping at nights so I'm a little slower than usual.

I need to flush out their personalities, history, add a few more strengths and weaknesses, and add the img at the top (Not sure how to do that yet, had to google hexcodes. never heard of theme before), then I should be done. Please let me know if i need to change anything during my time in editing them.

Thanks,
Kame

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Just a quick little heads up: if I seem furtive in my online status, that is because I'm avoiding a different roleplayer who's not on this game. Please don't tell XD

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

OK today was super busy at the dealership. Every time I had a spare second to log I the phones rang off the hook ( I am the receptionist at the car dealership). I hope I can do more info on my character sheets later tonight when the kid goes to bed. I was not expecting the busy day but it went by super fast! :D

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

That actually looks good. I was kind of leaning towards defense and rescue from her power so great minds think alike! XD

Written Telepathy sounds cool!

I'll start working on the Character Sheets and should have them up and finished within the next few days. It's an hr till I go pick my daughter up from the sitters, then I work the rest of the week. I tend to take my ipad with me and at least do all the info, and save pictures for later.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Alrighty, looks good, I'll go add them

Just for the sake of adding the reservations, I'm gonna call that communication power Written Telepathy, until I'm told otherwise. And I'm gonna put her in the Defense and Rescue class, again, until I'm told otherwise. Just say if you want either of these changed.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Ok these are going to be a set of twins, so there will be two characters. Here are the face claims, I haven't come up with Character names yet:

Student for Combat: - Power of Enhanced Strength.
Image
FACECLAIM: Kamenashi Kazuya

Student for Research and Development, or Defense and Rescue. Power is the Siren Physiology(With possible merfolk tied into it <--- Undecided over merfolk physiology tied into it)) You can decide based on her powers.
Image
FACECLAIM: Kitagawa Keiko


Forgot to mention one thing. - Twins share a special power, and just this one. They can comunicate via writing on their skin. If the Female twin writes her brother a message on her arm, it will appear in the exact same spot on his arm.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Ok thanks. Sorry it took a while. I decided i had to have a nap or the world was over @.@ Love my kid but ugh. lol :P
I will have it up within the next half hour. Just finalizing face claims, have many to choose from.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

@KameJLa Yes, they certainly can! My student reservation is actually going that direction too!

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Hello I am interested. I will fill out a faceclaim And reservation once my kid is at the sitters in a few hours. She thought 3am was up time today @.@
There is so many to choose from, and the rules are very simple. I'm huge on communication so no problem there. If anything I over communicate.
Just a quick question: can a student or professor be from one of the other universes?

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Alright, that sounds great!

Just as a heads up, I've posted up a Roleplayers Wanted thread, which also contains some extra info on my kind of headspace going into the game. Not at all required to play, but you might wanna know if that's something you're into knowing, or if you wanna go in and post your own headspace going in. I know Forum Roleplays don't generally do that kind of stuff, but that's been my kind of style as a GM for years, so I thought I might kind of give it a try here, see if it works.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

His name is Omar Borkan, basically I knew I wanted a Middle Eastern look for my character so I Googled "Middle Eastern male models" and he came up in a list of top ten hottest Middle Eastern men. I like his style, he uses a lot of ornamentation and bright colors, which aren't seen very often in the West.

And also, his power will be water manipulation, or hydrokinesis.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Righto, on it.

Mind if I ask who that is, just out of curiosity?

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Alright, could I reserve the professor for the combat major please? I'll write up a character sheet shortly and my faceclaim will be this:

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Alrighty, character skeleton is up and running. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to make a start on my own characters.

Re: Providence College for the Future of Heroics

Oh I'm intrigued. I have so many characters that would work for this lol. Among them being a plant controlling smart guy, an insane barbershop quartet with replication powers and a banshee scream(cause every role play needs a villain haha) and a no talent loser whose only power is to instantly pull things from a magic chest. I have half a mind to make a a character for each major.
