Topic: RPG- Superhumans 2: Anarchy
Here it is, folks, the much-anticipated sequel to RPG-Superhumans!
HereÃ¢Â€Â™s the rules before we begin:
No all-powerful characters. Please.
You can have any character you want. He or she can be a hero, villain, or neutral, and have one big power or several smaller ones.
Be consistent. If somebody blows up a building, don't be attacking it in your next post.
You can kill characters you create but you can't kill other people's characters unless they say they have been killed in battle with you. However you can wound them...
You can have any weapon you want but you can only have what your character could physically carry - otherwise they wouldn't be able to move.
If you have sustained many wounds you will have to either get medical help or eventually die.
Follow the storyline, sure add a few twists and turns but allow others to see where you want to go so they can help you get there.
Let's have fun here, people.
A super villain by the name of Oni attempted to band together and organize all the super villains in the metropolitan Mission City. Despite help from the anti-human pyrokinetic lizardman named Flame, Voidhunter, a sinister schemer composed of shadow, and OniÃ¢Â€Â™s right hand man, Jericho, whoÃ¢Â€Â™s powers were straight out of The Matrix, OniÃ¢Â€Â™s plan did not bear fruit. His plan was undone due to a group of superheroes who stumbled upon his plan before it was executed.
Haze, a telekinetic who tended to stay neutral between good and evil, Starbright, HazeÃ¢Â€Â™s solar powered cousin, the shape shifting metal man Chromium, Vandal, a vengeful telepath, Frost, whoÃ¢Â€Â™s name explains his powers, the equally eponymous Sunburn, lumbering strong man Acero, Darklight, VoidhunterÃ¢Â€Â™s arch nemesis and actual brother, Desedemona, a spectral soul eater, and her soon-to-be lover, Jack, a weapon-toting ragamuffin who could mimic any action or fighting style after witnessing it once, were all instrumental in undoing OniÃ¢Â€Â™s scheme. However, the one who truly spelled the villainÃ¢Â€Â™s downfall was Harry the barman, whoÃ¢Â€Â™s powers of superpower-mimicry and shape shifting were a secret even to Oni. Harry proved his worth by tearing Starbright in half, framing all the heroes for inexcusable crimes, and escaping by possessing the body of a policeman.
In the name of self-preservation, Oni, Jericho, and Flame were forced to team up with the heroes to defeat Harry, and Voidhunter decided to take advantage of the situation to finally kill his nemesis Darklight.
At the same time, Drakeus, a feral demon from the pits of hell, had been let loose on earth to wreak havoc in the name of Lucipher. He and Jack quickly became great foes, and Drakeus made it his mission to kill the hero.
In a heated final battle, a mutated monstrous Harry is killed by Haze and his bestial soul in condemned to hell by Desdemona. Drakeus, unable to defeat his enemies, is brought back to hell by his superiors, who are not happy with his lackluster performance.
Amidst all this madness, OniÃ¢Â€Â™s legs are ripped off by Harry and Darklight sacrifices himself to end Voidhunter. The two are wiped from existence in a brilliant flash of light, and their bodies are nowhere to be found. They end up spirited away to a limbo dimension, where they are free to battle each other for all eternity.
Chromium, Haze, Vandal, Jack, Frost, and Sunburn join together and form a new super team called Andromeda and vow to clear their names of the crimes Harry framed them for.
Jericho and Oni are last seen driving away from Mission City, uncomfortable with being heroes, and planning to Ã¢Â€Âœstart freshÃ¢Â€Â. Flame, uncomfortable working in any kind of group, wanders away alone.
The heroes, after several tense encounters with the law, are able to coerce the government to research the crimes laid before them.
The investigation reveals the heroes are in fact innocent, and they begin to operate publicly with huge public approval. Plans to crackdown on super crime are quickly begun. A super-villain gang war in the town of Driftwood causes the heroes to propose something called the Darklight Act
The Darklight Act passes through Congress, stating that all super villains are to be rounded up, have their powers suppressed and imprisoned in special holding facilities designed to contain them.
By the end of the year, the prisons are a roaring success and super-crime is at an all-time low.
Andromeda quickly becomes a world-famous super team, and begin to police super-crime world-wide, although they are still based in Mission City.
Oni and Jericho remain uncaptured and seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth.
Flame, apart from some amateur home video and Bigfoot-esque photos, seems to have disappeared as well.
A public relations disaster occurs when a fatal gas leak is discovered too late in one of the super villain prisons. The body count is in the hundreds.
Later that year, disaster occurs when The Kremlin in Russia is destroyed when dozens of bolts of lightning inexplicably strike the Kremlin during an unexpected thunderstorm. Amidst the chaos, several bombs are detonated and the Kremlin is destroyed.
While Andromeda is able to determine that a superhuman was responsible for the Kremlin attack ,they are unable to capture the culprit.
By the end of the year, the Sydney Opera, Big Ben, and the Sphinx have all met fates similar to the Kremlin.
New York City
Ã¢Â€ÂœJeez. More frikkinÃ¢Â€Â™ rain.Ã¢Â€Â Chet the security guard groaned, sipping from his coffee mug. 16 years working on security detail at the Statue of Liberty and he was still working security cams. His new partner Al, whoÃ¢Â€Â™d been working there all of three weeks was staring at the cams, clearly bored out of his mind.
Ã¢Â€ÂœSome hoboÃ¢Â€Â™s trying to sleep on the stairwell and everyone elseÃ¢Â€Â™s dealing with the kids from the preschool. You wanna deal with him or should I?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™ll do it.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœK. DonÃ¢Â€Â™t be gone too long. You never know what exciting thing might happen next.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœPlease, the most action we ever get is field trips and homeless codgers, and all these electrical problems we been havinÃ¢Â€Â˜ lately.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœBetter than beinÃ¢Â€Â™ a homeless codger.Ã¢Â€Â
Al swiveled in his chair as Chet exited the office.
Ã¢Â€ÂœThreeÃ¢Â€Â¦Ã¢Â€Â He mumbled to himself, checking his watch while Chet dealt with the conveniently placed hobo. Ã¢Â€ÂœTwoÃ¢Â€Â¦Ã¢Â€Â
BZZZAAAATTT!!! Amidst the hail of rain, a bolt of lightning suddenly struck the Statue of Liberty, shorting out its power.
Ã¢Â€ÂœRight on cue.Ã¢Â€Â Al felt around in the darkness of the office for his duffel bag heÃ¢Â€Â™d brought to work. Sifting through the spare clothes and water bottles, he found what he was looking for: A special type of explosive that blended in with its surroundings once attached to something. Several of them were already scattered around the statue at various spots. After placing the bomb under the desk, Ã¢Â€ÂœAlÃ¢Â€Â quickly opened the door of the office and scuttled out.
BZZZAAAAATTTT!!! Another burst of lighting struck the Statue, shattering the Torch she carried.
BADOOOOOOOOOOM!!! As soon as lightning struck the torch, a massive explosion blew Lady LibertyÃ¢Â€Â™s entire arm off as debris cascaded into the water below.
Ã¢Â€ÂœAaaaaaaand thereÃ¢Â€Â™s the bombs.Ã¢Â€Â Al chuckled to himself as the Statue of Liberty erupted into flame with lightning raining down like wrath from God.
Ã¢Â€ÂœAl? AL!?! What the #$%^ is going on?!?!Ã¢Â€Â Chet had evidently noticed the situation.
Ã¢Â€ÂœOh that? Well, evidently the Statue of Liberty is being bombed.Ã¢Â€Â Al said, not bothering to state any more of the obvious. He pulled out a big red button from his jacket pocket.
Ã¢Â€ÂœSay hi to the wife for me, Chet.Ã¢Â€Â Al pressed the big red button and appeared to be beamed up, Star Trek style.
Meanwhile, high in the air
Ã¢Â€ÂœHahaha! Eat that, Lady Liberty! Lightning never strikes twice, it strikes 50 times! Gahaha!Ã¢Â€Â
Alastor cackled as he hovered in the air, invisible to the rest of the world thanks to the cloaker his boss gave him, and fired bolts of lighting at the landmark below. He loved his job.
When the job was done, and the statue of Liberty was a smoking pile of rubble, he descended from the air and flew back to the airship home base, which was hovering over Times Square, also cloaked from the civilians below. He landed on the hull, able to see it thanks to his visor he wore that allowed him to see things cloaked with the technology that cloaked him. He entered the ship.
Ã¢Â€ÂœWhere are ya, boss man?Ã¢Â€Â Alastor asked, looking for his employer.
Ã¢Â€ÂœRight here, Alastor.Ã¢Â€Â Al said, having changed from security guard uniform to a Canary Yellow three-piece suit and a turquoise tie.
Ã¢Â€ÂœUh, what are you wearing?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou donÃ¢Â€Â™t like it? I thought it was rather fetching.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœYeah, what kind of dog fetched it?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœHilarious. Down to the point, nice job on the statue.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœYa know, for some reason I liked blowing up that one more than any of the other ones. Why do ya think that is?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœCouldnÃ¢Â€Â™t tell you.Ã¢Â€Â Al brushed his fingernails on his suit lazily. Ã¢Â€ÂœSo anyway, next I think we should head toÃ¢Â€Â¦ Mission City.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœGettingÃ¢Â€Â™ homesick, Al--Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou know not to call me that.Ã¢Â€Â Al stopped his partner.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou wanna go back to being called r--Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou know what to call me.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœFine, Mr.Anasazi..Ã¢Â€Â Alastor rolled his eyes, considering his bossÃ¢Â€Â™s nickname to be foolish.
Ã¢Â€ÂœThatÃ¢Â€Â™s better. Alright crew, letÃ¢Â€Â™s spur this Iron Sky-Pony on! To Mission City!Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœTo Mission City!Ã¢Â€Â The crew, mostly seemingly average people stationed a computers, echoed. The airship swiveled around, unseen to everyone in the world, and moved towards Mission City.
