Plot: It is the 22nd century in the U.S., specifically Colorado. In the state lies The Powered Capital of the world, or at least the free Powered one( Those in more dictatorial country not so much.), New Dawn City. The place was originally just an upstart town to mine a new energy source, Ultranite which is a mostly stable yet highly powerful and clean substance to use as a power source, but with said substance coming to light and with tech pretty much going singularity or mere inches from doing so created a perfect storm. With tech boosting the brain power by quite a high percentage the brain and the radiant energy from Ultranite causing mutations created mutations. specifically powers. At first people were understandably fearful of them. Most take sanctuary in this town that soon grows into a city. Then the president gets a pro-powered agenda that got through congress. One of the first to take advantage is Genesis, the first official hero, managed to get through all hoops set by the Powered Resources Regulation Agency (PRRA) which is the side of the government that handles everything regarding powers. This all started in the late 21st century. Fast forward a little bit. Now it's mid 22nd century. Heroing has come to be the road to star-dom. Of course that comes with a cost. A very good chunk are glory hogs. There are still plenty of good ones still around though. However it is just a symptom of a bigger issue: Corruption long thought expunged thanks to the rise of heroes is seeping it's way back in. One of the big incidents showing was a streak of Hero brutality cases, some accidental some intentional. A brutal zero-tolerance judge, Justin Conviton, was suspicously involved in all their cases which where mid to high profile. With all this going on it's proveing to be a fertile ground for villainy. So the Question is: Will you be a Hero or Villain? Save the world? Or Condemn it? Important Notes, Organizations, and Characters: NDPD: New Dawn Police Department. The cops while not much help with powered crimes in progress they are still top notch investigators and with non-powereds commiting crimes they are still good at busting them down. They do have a Power SWAT team that deal with powereds, but they are more to stall until heroes arrive. PRRA: The agency in charge of dealing with powereds. from registering heroes, running the protection program for Hero's families under serious threat, to occasionally stepping up to directly getting involved with their own agents who , thanks to the money from the fed, are able to actually handle powered threats should they be called in to deal with it. most of the time though they act more as an admin then soliders so to speak. The Dawn Guard:The premiere super group of Dawn city, and the nation. Also the oldest, started by Genesis. Still very well respected and do their job though something seems off with Protector, their leader. Human Advocates: While on the outside they reasonable, don't be fooled. They are THE hate group against powers. Currently pretty weak they are on the rise with the leadership Riley Bachman and new Hero spokesman, Crusader, a hero who gets his abilities from his highly advanced Personachip and clad in the group's white and black. Protector:Clad in white and gold the guy is leader The Dawn Guard. while he has been acting strange at times he still holds up as a role model for many. His power is to create armor either around himseldf or another that both protects and gives a boost to fighting abilities. Genesis:The guy who started it all. Originally known as Zachariah Weaver he was a street punk who went literally zero to hero. He was at first a back-alley fighter and thief who after gaining his powers and losing his only family, his little sister, He became the first powered vigilante that didn't get killed or caught. With some pressure from him as his rep grew he successfully got the govt. to institute many of the laws regarding powereds on the books, so he knew most of their workings. And used it to help those he saw some hope for. However the early rise of glory hogs, as he calls them, with the change out of the Dawn Guard roster where he left, Defeating his archnemsis Omega, his family starting to go glory hog(though it took a while)and a general loss of purpose caused him to grow disenchanted from the hero world and disappear entirely. And no one has had his power of the origin point, the first and most powerful power where he could create,copy,and give powers as he pleased,since. He wore a mix of tights and power armor with a white color scheme with a green G in the middle plus blue tinted visor. Curiously an old man while beared bears an uncanny resemblance to an old man version plus his knowledge of early times for Heroes is far more than your average scholar. And has been known to do some training for heroes from the outer edges though He is pretty hermit like though, so who knows for certain. Justin Conviton: The judge who played a big part in the culling. He is a cold,cruel, handsome politician.And he has aims for the white house to push his pro-power control(read:anti-powered) agenda through. Hero Brutality: Legal code for Hero killing Villain in a fight. Often it is accidental or in self defense are often met with X amount of hours in community service and a fine. However in the culling all got sent to the Big Lockdown, Max security Prison, in a rash of those cases. Personachip: Think your Iphone, PC and most other devices all in an implanted chip in your head with an Augmented reality affect. add in an AI that helps manage your stuff with a customizable personality and you have this thing. "Magic"-whether it actually exists is unknown but some have powers eerily similar to it though. It is a subject of debate and study. However it is agreed that it always comes with a cause. Ultranite- A somewhat recent discovery this stuff pretty clean and plentiful. Radiant energy from this mineral it helped spark powers. Power Levels: There are 5 levels. Origin-Rare, but extraordinarily powerful. Have access to most powerful and primordial forces around. Infini- Still majorly strong though slightly more common. have access to still strong forces but not at creation level. Alpha- Pretty strong and fairly common. can do a lot but not as powerful as the other two. Beta- about the minimal power level recommended for heroing. fairly common and okay strength Cappa- recommended to have tech used with if heroing at all. Weak and pretty common. Herologists: The docs for heroes and occasional psychologists. They handle medical stuff for heroes, especially those that have physiology beyond what normal docs can handle or that their powers are pretty hazardous. Splicer groups: Think mob entirely made out of powereds. Often called splicer _________. reason they are called Splicer is most spliced powers into their genes rather than coming into them naturally.Map:Downtown: The Heart of the city, This place is where all the tech, cultural and financial meet. Rather nice and modern buildings all around. Lots of Hero Groups make their Headquaters here. The burbs: Pretty much your normal suburbs here. The Industrial district: While many things have progressed in the century some things stay the same. One of those things is that Industrial is run down, poluting (though not as much), and crime ridden. The place is a favorite of villains for hideouts thanks to the access of manufacturing areas, abandoned buildings and proximity to the utility plants should they decide to try and do something with them. Skylofts: Think the burbs, but for heroes. obviously it is a gated community (villains going for the hero's place anyone?) with a great deal of security and privacy protection for those with Secret IDs. Also has homes that are designed to be able to let even those with the most nasty passive powers be able to relax without worrying about causeing damage. (not counting guests of course.) The edge: The ghetto of New Dawn City. They have the rundown, broken up neighborhood. Has all the issues a normal ghetto does plus it is all powered up. Including of course gangs, and drugs that either enhance or cause very unstable powers that require regular use. plus a lot of Splicer groups are based out of here.
