The Rebooted Superpower RP OOC
« on: August 08, 2010, 05:34:16 pm »
And so it begins again.

Bios should be setup like so:

Name:  Take a guess.
Age:  Pick a number, any number.
Bio:  A paragraph or so describing your character's past and personality.

Powers  This natural abilities, technology, magic, skills, or anything else that sets your character apart.


Please read the RULES, play nice, and have a good time.


Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Name: Artemidoris "Art" Faber
Age: 28
Bio: A typical supervigilante background, trust fund kid, in college four years early, three undergraduate degrees Summa cum Laude in physics, chemistry and biology (Law, Business and Media Studies minors), a MSc in mathematics and a PhD in Engineering, tinkered in the university labs in between studying and attending every campus party worth going to. Also national level mixed martial arts champion and keen climber. Patented first invention half way through his first three degrees, doubled trust fund income in royalties. Fueled mainly on caffeine and prescription medication not intended for his use, takes to the streets of the city's most notorious slum aged 18 and armed with a wooden stick and a stun gun. Knifed four times in the side, but beats six gangbangers into unconciousness and two into comas.
Given psych evaluation in hospital, egotistical, compulsive thrill seeker, IQ too high to be measured accurately by available tests. Successfully represents self in following court case, released without charge.
Founds own company on Obano, the artificial continent. Gathers the brightest graduates in their fields and supervises and directs their research in between own inventing. Does not patent several inventions which would have the potential to make him astronomically rich. Successfully proposes and pushes through a new law legalising vigilantism on Obano. Fights crime without secret identity, claiming to be honest. He is not honest.

Powers

Smoke and Mirrors
Art claims he is gifted with supernatural psychic powers, including telekinesis and clairvoyance. He does not have these powers, telekinesis is achieved with gadgets and his purported clairvoyance is just a matter of noticing things most people ignore. Writes Sherlock Holmes fan-fiction as an outlet to avoid blurting out his methods.

He does it with wires
The lynchpin of Art's fighting style is an amazingly strong and almost invisible monomolecular wire of his own invention. Spools and launchers located on his suit allow him to use the wire in conjunction with discrete grapnels and bolas to achieve effects which to the unobservant appear to be telekinetic in nature. In the field the wires can support the weight of three grown adults. On contact with air the wires corrode to mundane elements over the course of a few hours, insuring discretion.

Goggles are cool
Art's goggles contain an infrared mode, recording and playback equipment, a heads up display for use in conjunction with his wire spools, face recognition software, realtime mapping software and current generation internet access.

Armoured suit
Art's suit is made of a lightweight blend of materials and can turn aside knifeblows and even small calibre bullets from firearms. It is also flame retardant and has a wipe-clean non-stick surface.

Vortex Gauntlet (Introduced Arc 3)
This lightweight device is a marvel of engineering. Microturbines incorporated into a hand-mounted device produce a blast of air able to knock a man off his feet. The vortex gauntlet needs a few minutes to build up power between blasts.

E.M. Gauntlet (Arc 4)
Cobbled together by Art in response to an attack by killer robots, the E.M. gauntlet is a rather crude device designed to create an intense magnetic field suitable for scrambling circuits and blanking credit cards. It can also be used to grab metal objects from a small distance away. Directional dampeners shield Art's own electronic systems from the gauntlet's effects.

Name: "Persephone"

Age: Estimated around 20 based on human growth patterns

Bio: Persephone was cryogenically frozen in an alien capsule deep in the ocean located near the the general horizontal center of what would become Obano. Her capsule was discovered by surveyors from Raeside Pharmaceuticals. Raeside brought the capsule from the bottom of the ocean and to one of its lab, where Persephone was released from the capsule. Though she was scared at first, she managed to eventually calm down and go along with the scientist's experiments, curious about who these people were. However, she quickly became annoyed at how invasive the scientists were, and began to patiently wait for an attempt to escape.

Persephone can be classified as an extraterrestrial, however, her DNA is composed of both human and alien DNA. Her form is humanoid, but most of her outer body is more akin to something of an insectoid. Persephone has both a skeleton and an exoskeleton. Her skin/exoskeleton contains colors between and including black and brown. However, her exoskeleton is heavily segmented to allow for good mobility. Strangely, her eyes are exactly like a human's except that the irises have a light red color. Her "hair" is black mass of a few dozen rough tendrils that grow and must still be cut, much like normal human hair.

Powers

Cloaking - Persephone's exoskeleton is coated in a microscopically thin film of alien metamaterials which are connected to her nervous system, allowing her to turn herself invisible to a large spectrum at will. Impressive alien engineering has apparently allowed this film to slowly repair itself if damaged, meaning removal is nearly impossible. However, thus far, the alien film has never extended itself to an object of human origin, meaning that if Persephone wants to remain completely hidden, she cannot wear any type of human armor or use any human weapon. Fortunately, the film is very slick, and most materials simply slide off it, negating strategies of throwing dust or dirt or etc on her with the intention to make it stick and reveal her movements. Like almost everything else about Persephone, the film self-destructs if separated from her body.

Inhuman Agility - Persephone is remarkably light for her size and supposed mass. However her muscles are still normal-sized, meaning she can move incredibly quickly and leap high in the air. Scientific examination of her body has revealed anti-gravitational particles spread evenly throughout her body, replicating and self-destructing as necessary to maintain a balanced amount. In one experiment, samples of Persephone's exoskeleton were extracted, but they almost immediately became significantly heavier, the anti-gravitational effect disappearing quickly as the particles self-destructed. The mechanism by which the particles balance themselves is unknown.

Surface Climbing - Persephone's alien DNA contains sequences which create microscopic tiny hairs on her hands and feet, which, combined with her incredible lightness, allow her to scale surfaces with ease. These sequences and her DNA are some of the only things that scientists have been able to reliably extract from her and study, but studies have revealed they're very similar to sequences found in many arthropods with the ability to climb surfaces.

Name: Nathan Stills

Age: 22

Bio: Nathan is the youngest in a long line of magic users.  For generations, his family has used their specialized magical skills for any number of purposes, be it for good or greed.  Nathan however chose to follow the first of those paths, utilizing his skills to aid those who cannot aid themselves.  At the same time, he saw his quest to do good as a chance for grand adventure, as in the stories of old.  And so, he traveled to the virgin land of Obano, hoping to make his name in a new world.
Nathan is an adventurer by heart, brave and carefree.  He fancies himself a modern day knight, noble and chivilrous, doing his best to make some order out of a wild world.

Powers:

Thinking with Portals
The Stills family trade revolves centrally upon the use of magic sigils and lines to form dimensional portals, connecting different points in 3d space.  Simply by tracing a line across a surface or through the air, Nathan can open up a rift connecting that location with another nearby.  The portals appear almost like shimmering windows, and allow anything to pass freely through them until closed.  While Nathan can make the portals in midair, it is far easier to do it upon a flat surface, and far more difficult to apply to moving objects, though not impossible.  Similiarly, as the portals get larger they become harder to maintain.

Return Ticket
Ordinarily Nathan is only able to connect a portal to a location nearby, though not necessarily visible.  In order to utilize it to travel longer distances, he has to have previously marked his target with a return sigil.  For this purpose, he carries with him a small stamp, which he applies in out of the way locations anywhere interesting he vists, so that he may return at a later date.

Bag of Holding
While not trully a bag, Nathan has set up a small vault at an undisclosed location, marked with return sigils.  This allows him to access it from anywhere via small portals, quickly retriving or depositing equipment as needed.

Oh Yuu, I never have any idea what you're talking about.  ;)

Also, may I just say that I am very excited about this and have been looking forward to it since before we even finished the last one.  Seriously, I've had Nathan planned since pretty much the moment the last RP ended.

Name: Baal Serine

Age: 26

Bio: As an outcast among his people, driven away for his special powers, Baal ended up being adopted. This situation was not all that bad for Baal, considering his adoptive parents helped him improve his powers and send him to college, mostly to learn more about the features every material out there has, so he could master his powers. He started doing some vigilante acts in his neighbourhood and become known as Steel Stopper, which he always thought was kind of lame. He decides to travel around the world around the age of 25 and eventually wound up on Obano.


Powers:
Metamorphosis: With some concentration, Baal is able to take the properties of elements he touched. For example, if he touches steel and concentrates on it, the part of his body he chooses, for example his arms will look gray and shiny and they'll be as hard as steel. This works on pretty much everything, but he also gets the weaknesses of said molecule. If he chooses to become concrete, he will resist extremely high pressure forces, but when teared enough the part that is concrete will snap. He can fix most of these mishaps by becoming something loose like sand or even a liquid like water.

His human shape will stay depending on what he wants his body to do. If he assumes the properties of a solid material like iron, he will not be able to deform his shape away from being humanoid. If however he decides to become a liquid material like water or oil, he can deform he's body pretty much as much as he likes, even becoming a puddle to sneak around. The process of deforming is not an instantaneous one however and it will take time for him to revert from puddle form.

Most of the time however, he can be seen having a steel body because he finds it the most convenient and the strongest to have.



I can do science, me: Baal has learned how most things work by observing and tinkering with stuff. Spending his college years on physics and chemistry has helped him a great deal to. Given the materials, he can fix most weaponry, as long as it isn't too alien or can even make certain weapons. Thanks to this, he usually has some mines and pipebombs around to use.

I am bloody FASHIONABLE eagle!1!

Name: Blue Lightning (Kevin Retrin)
Age: 36
Bio: Blue Lightning, born Kevin Retrin, was born in a rural town and left as soon as he could. He went to the big city where he worked at the nuclear power plant and one near fatal accident mutated his genetic structure. Capable of manipulating electricity and energy he realized that he couldn't live a normal life and left. On his journey he became known as Blue Lightning and made a kick ass costume. From there he ended up traveling to Obano, looking for fame and fortune.

Energy manipulation: Blue Lightning is capable of controlling electrical energy and can store large amounts in his body, which can later be shot out in great arcs of electricity. It can kill at touch but only when fully charged. On occasion the electricity can be released in a manner that can cause him to 'fly' momentarily.

Glow in the Dark: Blue Lightning generates 200 watts of light constantly. This is involuntary and continues to take place post mortum.

Name: Korf
Age: 24
Bio: Korf grew up only knowing his mother, and it was limited at that. By age 12 he was living on the streets and doing his best to scrounge up money for his next meal. Needless to say, by the time he was 20 he had been in and out of jail. He was well known by the local police department and vice versa, the main reason being because after a standard home burglary, Korf was running from the cops. They identified themselves as police officers, and when he refused to comply they shot him. Everyone that saw the scene unfold swore that Korf had been hit, but instead of showing any bullet wounds, Korf simply kept running. Korf had always thought he was just lucky, but when the more he thought about it, the more he realized that he had never truly been hurt before.
Korf realized his other power when he was working one of his numerous dead end, blue collar jobs. He had been hired on as part of a shipping company, and because of this was well versed in the moving of material goods. These normally came in large boxes that required numerous workers to unload, but Korf found that the more he focused on the object, the lighter it became. Likewise, if he decided to make the object heavier it would become heavier.
Finally, after getting out of jail for the fourth time, Korf decided that it was time to move on with his life. So with his meager savings, he decided to make his way to the new continent of Obano for a fresh start.
Korf is surprisingly smart for only having an 9th grade education. Ever since he was little he had a fascination with books and would devour them whole within mere hours. He may be rough around the edges, but the more you get to know him, the more you can appreciate his inner intelligence and resolve.

Powers:
Unbreakable
Korf is much stronger and more resilient than the regular man. He cannot remember the last time he had any serious cuts let along scratches. He has never had a broken bone in his body and doesn't remember ever being sick.

It's All Relative
Korf has the ability to shift the relative mass of himself and objects he touches. The most noticeable effect this has is that Korf can manipulate the weight of himself and objects depending on the situation. If there's a large, heavy obstacle in his way Korf can simply touch it and make it as light as a feather. If Korf realizes that he's about to be hit by a moving vehicle he can simply increase his mass to absorb the impact of the oncoming vehicle. Or he could make himself very light and jump a greater distance.

Name: Sandra Murdo
Alias: General Amazing

Age: 38

Bio: As a child, Sandra always excelled in all of her physical and mental pursuits. In high school, she started taking various martial arts classes to learn ways to exercise, vent her emotions and relax. Through continued practice, she eventually learned to harness her inner energies in strange ways. After high school, she had a chance encounter with some bank robbers. After thwarting them, the robbers' leader cursed her name as he was taken off to prison. After the incident, she was approached by a man wishing to hire her as a personal bodyguard, which she accepted. The man turned out to be one of the founders of Obano. Soon, however, she learned that the robber's words was no idle curse. Her mind was invaded by another voice. The voice spoke of chaos, but was quiet most of the time. When using her chi, however, the voice became louder and threatened to take her over from the inside. So far, she has been able to overcome it and keep it subdued. After proving herself as a competent bodyguard, her employer had her moved to the position of Obano's first officially sanctioned superhero and granted the alias of General Amazing. Along with being designated the continent's official protector, she also became the poster child for the government's recruitment attempts to try to get more heroes to sign on as officially sanctioned.

The government quickly became aware of Sandra's mental instability after an incident with some exceptionally powerful super villains, which she only defeated after using large amounts of her chi and then turned on the innocent hostages they had. Luckily she was quickly put down by the extraction team. The incident has been largely covered up and she was allowed to keep her position, but her suit was modified to allow officials to keep track of her at all times, just in case she is to lose control again.

Powers:
Impressive Physique: Thanks to her martial arts training and practice, she is in prime physical health and is often commented on as being beautiful. There's a reason they made her the poster child after all.

Chi Control: By tapping into her inner energies, she can enhance her physical abilities or create concussive energy blasts and other pseudo-physical manifestations. After the chaotic voice manifested, she also became aware of the possibility of draining the chi from other people, or pumping her own into
them to manipulate them. In either case, excessive use of chi will cause her to slip more and more under the influence of the voice.

Name: Blue Lightning (Kevin Retrin)
Age: 36
Bio: Kevin was just a normal person. He got to work on time, never called in sick, graduated from college and had 3 loving kids. Then one day, on his way through the parking lot, a tall man approached Kevin and cursed him with these powers. Never again did he touch he see his family, he had it all and then he has nothing. When he tried to open his front door his house caught aflame. He learned to control his powers over time, and now only goes by Blue Lightning, saving people to his best ability and eventually ending up in Obano.

Energy manipulation: Blue Lightning is capable of controlling electrical energy and can store large amounts in his body, which can later be shot out in great arcs of electricity. It immediately kills anyone he touches, along with those within 10 meters of the touched. Unfortunately he has to recharge to use it.

EMP generation: Electronic technology does not work around Blue Lightning due to electromagnetic pulses.

Glow in the Dark: Blue Lightning generates 200 watts of light.

EMP generation is a little uncool to say the least, it's not very nice when your guy goes around automatically shutting down unprotected electronics and stopping unprotected vehicles. Generating light would also be a bad idea if he even began to attempt to be sneaky, you know? I would think he'd be able to control that too. And you instantly kill everyone in a 20 meter diameter?? That is especially ridiculous.

Name: Isaac Meadows
Age: 23
Bio: Isaac, through most of his life, lived in luxury. His dad inherited money and property from his grandfather, allowing both him and his wife to care for their two kids while still allowing him to be one of the top 50 businessmen in the world. They provided the best education they could for their kids and encouraged them to attend college. Isaac, the first of their kids to reach "maturity," decided he would rather spend his life partying and having fun. He was allowed to mooch off his parents for 4 years before they kicked him out of the house until he found a job.

He searched for months on end before an opportunity opened up for him. A scientist from Obano put out a request for a bodyguard. Seeing very limited options outside of this job, he accepted and started the next day. Here, Isaac was told to keep guard over the laboratory while Dr. Adler would conduct his research. Initially the job seemed like fun. Isaac would watch TV all day, but it quickly became boring. One day, out of boredom, Isaac decided to dig through Adler's old belongings in his attic. He stumbled across many strange things, ranging from pictures of exotic animals to blueprints for heavy weaponry. One thing specifically caught Isaacs eyes, a small golden box.

After checking to make sure Adler wasn't looking, he opened the box to see what was inside. Isaac quickly became disappointed when he saw a strange looking watch laying in the box. Though unimpressed by the watch, he tried it on anyways, and quickly found out this was no ordinary watch. When he tried to take the watch off, it wouldn't budge. When he tried to adjust the time, it turned into a gauntlet instead. Over time, Isaac realized the device was more than just a watch... it was a weapon.

Powers:
Fisticuffs - Isaac's watch transforms into a gauntlet known as the "Arbiter". The gauntlet wraps around his hand and travels up his arm. The Arbiter is connected to his nervous system, allowing Isaac to control it as if it were his own arm. While his arm is covered, the heavy armor protects him from almost all damage, making it a perfect shield. It can dish out just as much as it can take. Alone, the weapon can lift and throw a small truck.
Lock and Load - With a mental signal to the weapon, Isaac can turn the gauntlet into a energy cannon encompassing his arm up to his elbow. The blasts vary from small, quick bursts of energy to large, charged up blasts.

The Arbiter Network - Isaac's gauntlet has fused itself inside of his body. The armor is now capable of surrounding his entire body, allowing for more protection and virtually the same powers otherwise. The armor seems to be very high-tech and capable of evaluating the situation and providing helpful feedback. This feedback helps Isaac further develop his armor, allowing to to adopt as time goes on.

I gotta agree with Raz, Badger.  Insta-kill is a definite no-go.  EMP should be toned down to just interference instead of flat out disabling things.  If you want to be a glowstick, I guess you can, but yeah, probably a bad idea.

And random curse is a little lame, too.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Yeah, I noticed these things too but decided to keep my mouth shut.  I definetly agree it needs quite a bit of work, especially the backstory.

"He is guy who is happy and then he gets curse and then he is not happy and kills everyone."

I'm sorry, that was a bit dumbed down, but this is what I interpret from it.

Also, is it just me or has 3/4 bios started with "They did well in highschool and then went to college."  I realize that this would be a very standard backstory and I have no issue with it, I just found it currious.
