Hero Association headquarters, City A. "Mr. Sonshu, we've got a problem over in city X. There are reports of mass structural damage," "Let me see that," Mr. Sonshu wrestled for a place next to his lieutenant the peered into his monitor, "jesus christ, we need to get this under wraps as soon as possible, threat level?" "Hard to say, I haven't had a good visual on the perpetrator," "Well get it done man! People are dying! Have you called in an emergency signal?" "Done," "Good," said Mr. Sonshu. He moved away from the monitor, fixing to get some water. As he turned around a voice shot out of the darkness of the dimly lit room. Being on the night shift, Mr. Sonshu had assumed he and his colleague were alone for the evening and the new voice sent a electric shiver through the man, "good god! who is that?" he yelled through the terror. "Calm down Sonshu, it's Saitama. Why is it always so dark in here anyway?" Saitama pondered as he stepped out of the shadows and into the glow of the screen monitors. "How did you get here so quickly?" Mr. Sonshu said, flabbergasted. "Oh? I was racing Genos, he should be here soon," replied Saitama. As if on que, Genos rushed through the automatic steel doors of the security room. "Sensei!" exclaimed Genos "Oi! Cut that out, we're in front of people," said Saitama slyly. "forgive me sensei," replied Genos, bowing. Saitama seemed somewhat unimpressed with Genos but ignored his Freudian slip. "What's the problem, Sonshu," pressed Saitama. "It seems a monster or villain of some kind is tearing up city X, but we can't get a good visual. Lieutenant, any word on that perp?" "No sir," "Damn you Cowel, what do I employ you for? Fuck ups? You think I love fuck ups?" Mr. Sonshu's face was fit to burst after his clearly stress related outburst. "It's okay Mr. Sonshu, there is no problem Sensei cannot fix," said Genos, perhaps a little too generously. "I'll let that go for now Genos, but my patience with you is wearing thin. We'll be over there soon Mr. Sonshu. Genos? Race?" and with that said the two burst out of the room at what seemed like lighting speed. "Those men are freaks aren't they?" said Mr. Sonshu, stunned. "I think so sir, yeah," they both paused for a minuet taking in what had just happened. Saitama and Genos, The rank 1 and rank 2 S class heroes, racing to get to the crime scene, "Sir! Saitama is on the scene, I have a visual. Ah, wait," the lieutenant half gasped, "he's gone." "Did he move? Is he just moving really fast? What is it?" "No he just disappeared really suddenly, I can't explain it." "Pull the footage back. My god, oh my god," said Mr. Sonshu, the volume of his voice steadily rising with each word, "this is threat level God, my God sound the alarms man, this is threat level God!" ~*~So, as you may have guessed this is a One Punch Man inspired RP. It's set in a slightly alternate timeleine, somewhere in the near future of Saitama's hero career. Saitama has been finally recognised for the god that he is, and has become the top ranking hero in the world with Genos right behind him. After the above incident, more heroes are sent into the field, until all the S ranked, A ranked heroes had mysteriously disappeared, (along with a few minor B and C ranked heroes,) just like Saitama and Genos. In a desperate panic and with an inevitable monster crisis on their hands, they open the doors for a huge recruitment rally the objective being to fill the ranks as soon as possible and keep the other cities in check. They also shuffle all the remaining B and C ranked Heroes in together with the new Heroes (so expect head's to butt). It's a grand old mess, and there's a huge mystery to be solved. It is up to you, the players, to help me write this plot. RP rules etc. I'm looking for some interesting heroes, with some interesting abilities. All should be OC, however, I don't mind if you want to create something close to a character in the show or whatever, I'm pretty open like that. one thing to keep in mind is a kind of gimmick, just as a tip. So, you could be a girl that transforms into animals, and also summons them to battle, and give yourself a stupid name like "midnight crane" or "Hippo Phats". Just have fun with it. get inventive. Everyone starting is starting as an unknown hero, trying out the fitness and written test to get ranked as a hero. Your powers will mainly determine your rank, however, if it's clearly stated your character can't read or something, you may receive a lower rank than is justified (like in the show basically). Now, all players can also have NPC's they control. These characters can play any role you like, perhaps a rival C class hero that has just moved up to B class after the shuffle, and he doesn't like playing with the new kids. Or a boyfriend, or an android servant or something. Whatever it is, it's all good here. Just make them relevant, and in some way integral to your character plot. We'll always have a main plot, but there's no reason there can't be spin off threads for certain character plots etc as well. Other than that there are no real rules to this RP, nothing outside of the usual stuff. I don't mind characters being as silly, or as stereotypical, or archetypal as you want. I mean the show has a naked gay rapist who grows wings out of his back and fights naked. It doesn't get much more ridiculous than that. And it's hilarious. I'll put a character sheet below to give you an idea off what you're working with, but get in touch with me, either here or on a PM before you write out a character, just so I can have an idea of numbers. As I don't want to juggling too many players, it can clog up a game sometimes I find. Character Sheet (Put your characters picture here, only comic/anime/cartoon type images. No photo's of actors or whatever.) Name: Hero Name: Rank: (You can ask to be assigned a rank in the OOC if you want your character to have a certain path, and i'll try and dream up a way to make it work, it's down to you.) Age: Gender: Nationality: (Not ethnicity, where the character was born.) Race: (not ethnicity, this means, cyborg/robot/ai/human/wolf man, etc. Characters can not be out and out monsters. Things like vampires or aliens I may allow. Depends how you do it and if I think it works as a concept.) Bio: (Give us an overview of your character. Think of it like a dossier or a document on your Hero that the Association pull out when calling you up for your test or something. Or whatever is easiest for you. Don't go too overboard with this, tbh, I really can't be bothered reading a massive back-story. If you wanna flesh your chracters out some more, do it in game and edit it into your character sheet later. All we need to know is the basics.) Power/ability: (this should be self explanatory. Again, I support interesting ideas, not just super powerful one's. So no ripping off one punch man and just having unlimited strength. I'll call you out for that. I don't mind your power being a powerful power mind, I just wanna see something different. For a real challenge, you could even have no powers, like mumen rider and play from that perspective. It's down to you, I don't want to damper your experience of this RP) Disadvantages: (This could be anything from Dyslexia, or to being utterly useless as a lightning mage against an opponent made of rubber. Make sure you pop a fair few down, as these situations will likely come up in the RP at some point. There's no limit to this, but at least put three things.) Motives: (consider this your characters plot points. You should consider these every time you post. Why is your hero doing what they're doing? Do they want fame? Money? Protection? Status? Do they want to bring the association down from the inside? do they have a vendetta? Debts? A missing sister? Whatever it is, give your hero a few motivations.( (Anther tip, give your character an end game. you don't have to write it down here, but your motives should be to get to that end game.) ~*~ I think that's everything. Hope that wasn't too long for you all. I know it's a bit wordy, but I just wanted to be clear about what I'm looking for and what I'm trying to do as I seem to be meeting a lot of resistance on this RP and I'd like to see it take off. So I've laid out my intentions, bare. If this is a success, I'd like to do more, and perhaps we could incorporate a multi thread dynamic if more players want to join. Typically, each new plot will be a new calamity, much like in the show, but I'll try to keep them varied and interesting so that each time round it doesn't feel like a repeat. Okay, hope to hear from you guys soon! Another thing I forgot to mention was that depending on your actions in game, between threads, you may be ranked up or down in regards to your characters performance in a crisis. If you have any extra questions just give me a bell, I'm happy to answer anything. Thanks for reading!
