  1. It was supposed to be the party of the year.

    Instead, it became our last night as normal teenagers...


    Welcome to the (as-of-right-now) unnamed Super Hero Roleplay. If you know me, awesome! You get to post your profile. If you don't, please don't ask to join! I'm sorry but this is a private group roleplay that has already been discussed outside this site so please do not ask for an invitation. You will not be invited and I want to save you the time and effort of discussing the matter with me.

    Anyway, for the rest of you losers that I love so much, here are a couple of ground rules.

    1. Please post at least once a week. If you cannot, please inform me as soon as possible. If worse comes to worse and we do not hear from you, we WILL move your character.
    2. Please write at least two or more paragraphs.
    3. Please write coherently and as if you are writing a real story that will be read by other people, not whatever word vomit spews from your mind (I'm looking at you Mitch). It doesn't have to be publish-ready but it cannot be littered with run-on sentences, grammar mistakes, and spelling errors.
    4. Please be open about the movement of your character. In order to speed things along, your character might have to be moved for the sake of the roleplay. That does NOT mean when another person moves your character, they can speak or think for your character unless there is an agreement with the two of you. This rule can be modified through discussions because honestly, I don't know how you guys wanna play this out.
    5. HAVE FUN!!!!!

  3. yo bib, should probably add guidelines for character creation in case "your peeps" don't remember
     
  4. Sorry guys, a few edits to the profile and way we're making them. Nothing too major, just for appearance sake. Use my character sheet as your model:​

    Alice "Cannonball" Beckett
    [​IMG]

    Age:
    17

    Nationality:
    Caucasian- British

    Personality Traits:
    The Good: Idealistic, Hardworking, & Charismatic
    The Bad: Argumentative, Demanding, & Irritable
    The Neutral: Strict, Stubborn, & Outspoken

    Short Bio:
    The only daughter of a police captain and his wife, Alice was raised in a middle-class home in the quiet suburbs of North City. As a child, her mother constantly told her stories of brave knights and beautiful princesses while her father instilled a strong sense of justice in her. The combination of parenting styles helped develop Alice's strong-willed character which urged her to fight against the injustices of bullying. This lead to a few fist fights but as she grew older, she realized the best way to fight against bullies and other negative impacts in her school was to become a role model. Once she entered high school, she immediately joined the Student Council. Through charismatic campaigning, great grades, and a set position in the 'In Crowd', Alice easily became the next Student Council President. She is now organizing the greatest End-of-the-Year party for the leaving seniors and upcoming juniors so as to ensure her place in North City High School history.

    High School Clique: Prep/Student Council

    Super Durability; Alice can withstand high levels of damage, from gunshot wounds to blunt force trauma. However, she is still susceptible to poison, sickness, and extreme levels of temperature.

    Other:
    -Her original superhero name was going to be Bannerette, but everyone kept calling her Cannonball and it stuck.
    -Alice stands at 5'0" and hates it when people point out her short stature.
    -Has a huge sweet tooth.

  6. I hate you Aaron.

    Also, I added the High School Clique section after discussing that it would help to figure out relations with other characters. Did they know each other before the incident? How will their previous relations work out now that they're now tied together by a common, morbid thread? Etc.

At this new school she started the year with a brand new personality in hopes to become more popular.

  11. Germain Lafayette III
    [​IMG]
    Age:
    16

    Nationality:
    American/French

    Personality Traits:
    The Good:
    Quick witted, Passionate, Intelligent
    The Bad: Irrational, Rash, Lacks Foresight, Unrepentant Prankster
    The Neutral: Funny, Bold, Proactive, Fast-Talker

    Short Bio:
    The only child of former international performing artists Marcus and Charlotte Lafayette, Germain was raised in the modest home provided by the carefully managed fund resulting from his parents' former fame. He grew up alongside his cousin Walter after his aunt and uncle passed away nine years ago. Germain has maintained a fraternal closeness with his cousin throughout their young lives, even though they've been drawn to different interests in recent years. Walter's religiously practiced skill and natural talent have made him quite the star quarterback, and Germain discovered a great love and talent for break-dancing, much to his mother (classically trained ballerina) and father's (concert pianist) ire. Germain is a little shorter than average and has the light yet powerful build of a dancer. His bold and humorous bearing have earned him a certain degree of popularity at school, though those same traits often land him in hot water with other students and faculty alike. He has a tendency to just do things and make up a plan as he goes along, which doesn't always work out so great in the end.

    High School Clique: Dance/Art/Jocks

    Power:
    Telekinesis: Germain's abilities tax his mental and physical capacities, and can leave him fatigued in both aspects. His abilities require focus and purposeful direction. Scale, magnitude, complexity, multitude, and duration are limiting factors

    Other:
    -Alice is often involved in Germain's disciplinary actions because of all the trouble he gets into for the pranks he plays on the student council, but he secretly has a crush on her.
    -His father would take Walter and him out on trips into the mountains on a regular basis when he was younger, and so Germain has a love for climbing, camping, and being out in nature in general.

    [​IMG]

    Age: 16

    Nationality: American

    Personal Traits:
    The Good: Creative, Smart, Curious
    The Bad: Introvert, Avoids People, Easily Distracted
    The Neutral: Tangents, Eccentric at times, Passive

    Short Bio:
    Rebecca used to live in a small town in the North East. Her mother is a wealthy accountant, and her father works for the Core of Engineers which causes him to spend months away on work. Rebecca lived her life in the secluded area surrounded by trees, but during the transition between Rebecca's 2nd and 3rd year of high school her mother got a job transfer to North City, and so during her summer break she was uprooted and brought far from home.Things were different in the suburb she now called home. For starters her nearest neighbor was no longer at least half a mile away, there were more people compared to when she could go all day without seeing anyone, and she had to be a high school freshman again.
    Rebecca didn't like to socialize during school. She only had a few people she would hang out with in the library where she would read or play chess. Then for her last class she would practice with the school's swim team. She was friendly towards everyone, but never spent a lot of effort to see any one outside of school.
    Rather than hang out with people she would build and tinker. Taking things apart and creating something new. Rebecca would spend entire weekends in her room sitting at her work bench working on a project. That was unless her father was out of town for work. Then she took the chance to use his work-space in the garage.

    High School Clique: Swim Team

    Power: Electricity Manipulation
    >Absorb, Create, Nullify, and Direct electricity.
    >I can also go zap zap.

    > Builds cool little gadgets in her spare time.
    > Sometimes will take things a little too literally.​

  13. Sigourney "Sig" Blum

    [​IMG]
    [Just don't look at the Captain Marvel uniform]

    Age:
    18

    Nationality:
    Swedish

    Personality Traits:
    The Good: Hardworking, Diligent, Adaptable, & Down-to-Earth
    The Bad: Seems Apathetic, Self-Focused, & Condescending
    The Neutral: Snarky, Blunt, & Approachable

    Short Bio:
    Sig comes from a middle-class family with her twin brother, Gunner, and single father. Her mother died from complications during the birth of a younger brother, Lief, when she was four years old. Since then, her father, Olaf, has taken her under his wing to inherit the lucrative family business of Olaf's Autoshop. She's extremely diligent about her work at the shop and treats it as her main responsibility. Gunner is completely uninterested in the family business and plans on becoming an actor. Though almost completely different, the twins are practically inseparable and both are well-known at school for being unapologetic for their quirks and their ability to be friends with almost anyone. Sig runs track at school, but is known to skip practice if it interferes with her work schedule.

    High School Clique: Prep/Jocks/Art/Drama

    Power:
    Super Speed; Sig can move much faster than the average member of the human species, near or at the speed of sound, or even faster. However, this power is not without any ill effects, as it can strain the body. Sig isn't very strong, can be killed easily if she is not controlling her vibrations to pass through bullets or other weapons. She can tire and needs to eat a lot due to her extreme metabolism.

    Other:
    -Alias: Accelerator
    -Dresses androgynously; Sig is gray-asexual and her twin Gunner is gay.
    -5'11", with short blond hair and grey eyes. Is fit from track and has some extra muscle from working at her father's auto shop.
    -She also has a weakness for small cute things. That's a secret though, only her brother knows.
    -Her love for cars, dedication to knowing how they work, and her fast reflexes have made her into an incredible driver
     
  14. So I finally updated the Cast List and now it has everyone who has made a post (except Tofu of course). I'll have the extremely large intro post up by the end of this week.

  16. Name: Keith Thzalia Porter
    Pronunciation: k EE th, THa Lia, Poor Ter


    [​IMG]

    GENDER: Cis-Gender-ed Male

    APPEARANCE: 6'6 145 lb, Mildly Gaunt especially in the face with his high cheekbones, his hair is messy and unkempt combed together without much thought or effort put in, what muscle to be had is in a weak swimmer/track build. his inability to grow facial hair keeps him clean-shaven and baby-faced.

    Age:
    15

    Nationality:
    Caucasian- British

    Personality Traits:
    The Good: Brilliant, Knowledgeable, Rational, Fortuitous
    The Bad: Capricious, Callow, Alarmist, Curious
    The Neutral: Know-it-all, Blunt, Restrained, Lucky


    Short Bio:
    As the mathlete president, Keith is so smart he has been moved forward 3 grade levels (should be a freshman, but is graduating), awkward as hell otherwise, he doesn't understand people. He has the mild racism that comes with being Sheltered, and does not read and understand social ques well.
    To all of the other people at school he seem's as interesting as cardboard, but you can definitely trust any answers you read off his test, or any advise he gives you on homework. Nobody invites him to hang out, and Nobody from school even knows where he lives, or what his parents even look like. The closest to a friend group Keith has is the group of kids who play chess in the library during lunch and before school. Outside of the chess players are the few Mathletes that ask him to come help them study in the library before competitions, and the couple Jocks that have learned to sit next to him when he does his homework and take it when he's done. Keith has always realized most people are friendly to him for a boost to their GPA.

    Nobody really knows much about Keith outside of school due to his focus on work and lack of talking, plus since he keep's moving forward grade levels any friends that are made are left behind. The only people in school that really know anything about him are the other Mathletes. He has an engineer's mindset. His father is a "risk assessor" for oil companies and is constantly away on business for month's on end, as is traditional throughout Keith's life, his mother ,being a stock trader, stays home and manipulates the stock market with masterful prowess, leading his father not to need to work, however he does so anyway. Keith is an only child of his rich parents and has the entire third floor of the house to himself, where he hides away every evening to study his books and occasionally mess about on the internet.



    High School Clique: [​IMG]

    SUPER POWER: Emotion Aura
    It's the same power as green lantern except Will_aura is a sub-power. Therefore the color of light emitted by Keith will change depending on what emotion he is feeling the strongest, It will mostly be blue as hope is the strongest motivator. He will also be described as Lucky (mostly in his timing.).


    Limitations set as of now:
    Power points:
    I'm going to limit the size and complexity by over time making a list of how many points things should reasonably cost. A dagger being so low it doesn't even register and a military helicopter being like 500.


    Other:

    WEAKNESSES: Extreme awkwardness (especially girls), DEADLY Curious, Sheltered and Nieve.
    WEAPONS(S): Physic's and his Power

    Cannot drive a car, but could explain the functions of every piece in it.​

  17. I would also like to point out, if you are not 17 or 18 you either skipped a grade at some point, or are lying to the government about your age.
     
  18. There's nothing wrong with someone being 16 here. They can be at the party if they somehow found out about it. Also, are you really gonna pick Sheldon as your picture for Keith?
     
  19. I think it's a fitting picture, but I was hoping for some animu art
