Fairly aggressive. I'm perfectly happy to guide the story, but if your posts never move the plot forward at all, then we'll have a problem.
Favorite Genres
Modern fantasy is my personal favorite, followed closely by high fantasy and post-apocalyptic, but I can happily play in any genre if the plot is good enough.
Genre You DON'T Like

(¯`*•.¸,¤°´✿.。.:* Hello Iwaku! *.:。.✿`°¤,¸.•*´¯)

Peregrine here! I'm in the middle of a transitional phase in my life right now, and I'm hoping to find a few writers to help me fill a craving for a particular (potentially niche?) trope that helps get me motivated and excited to tackle new challenges. If you read the title of this thread, you can probably guess what comes next.

That's right.

▁ ▂ ▄ ▅ ▆ ▇ █ The Power Fantasy █ ▇ ▆ ▅ ▄ ▂ ▁


(Gif probably unrelated. But doesn't it look cool?)


How should all that colorful light be interpreted?
Well, it means I'm looking to play a character that has the physical or magical power to curb stomp anyone or anything that opposes them.
╰☆☆ Bonus points ☆☆╮ if everyone else thinks they're weak as fuck but they're actually OP as balls.


... Before you stop reading:
A lot of roleplayers I've met have a (frankly understandable) aversion to their partners playing a character over a certain universal power level. I get it. If it's done poorly (which is always a possibility) conflict within the story dies as tragically as a flopping fish, and the whole story falls apart. And I can't guarantee that won't happen with our story. What I can say is I've exposed myself to a lot of media that follows this trope, I've seen both good and bad conflict, and I have confidence in my ability to create challenges that provide the possibility for both tension and drama for both our characters. It's the best reassurance I have to offer.

Other Expectations:
    None!

As long as I get to play a character that is able (and gets the opportunity) to stand alone against literal or metaphorical armies, I'm happy.
My only goal from that point is to create a story you are happy with.
Give me scenarios, characters, interactions you are craving, and I'll roll with it.
Want this to be a gag story? I got you, bro.
Want blood, gore, and violence? I'll fetch the battlefields.
Want sweet, candy romance? Happy to oblige!
Want my character to be a background force that spends their whole time making yours look awesome? Sounds like a blast!
(note: This doesn't change my general rule of no smut or fandoms. Sorry.)
       I'm also not a fan of PM based roleplays... :(

No Inspiration But This Sounds Fun? Here's Some Plot Fodder
(Wow there's way too many of these...)

Young Blood The Soldier Spirit King Demon Wars The Hunter School of Magic Death Waits Psychic Caged Monsters The Pact Youth of Gods The Cult Thousandth Life Wow Too Many Tabs


  • In the future, a pill is developed that allows people to restore to the peak of their health and youth, and maintain that state so long as the pill is in their system. Unfortunately, 24 hours after taking the pill, everyone who takes it always dies. Due to this restriction, the pill has become something only the old or terminally ill are willing to use, to briefly relive the glory days of their youth before fading from the world.

    The old patriarch of a failing criminal power takes the pill on the day of a critical fight, in hopes of maintaining his family. However, 24 hours after taking the pill, he becomes the first person to live past the "deadly hour", and becomes a true immortal.

  • Put into hellish training in a virtual space where time flows unnaturally slow, a young soldier with overwhelming abilities is tasked with gathering and training a group of elite warriors to put an end to the war once and for all.

  • In a fantasy world, all magical power is born from the union of a contractor and a spirit. While little is known about the spirit world, the relationship between contractors and spirits is core to the basic function of modern society.

    All people spend three years before coming of age learning the nuance of spirit summoning and contracting, often geared towards the career they hope to pursue in the future.

    As a child, a polite young girl met a spirit in the depths of the night. Unknown to her, this spirit was the Spirit King, the ruler of all elemental spirits. When she enters into contracting school, things take a turn for the unexpected when all the spirits show her favor, even those already bonded to anther person.

  • Somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, a portal to the demon realm rips open, sending demons flooding across the world. As the untied armies of the world begin to fall, they are granted an unexpected blessing when a few teenagers around the world suddenly begin to show staggering magical power. These people are able to drive the demons back, and peace is mostly restored to the world.

    However, the world's best experts are unable to find a way to seal the portal, or prevent the demons from coming through. In order to maintain the world's peace, all children are tested on their 15th birthday for powers, and any who are found to possess it are conscripted to the front lines, to put their lives on the line to fight for the safety of the world, until they lose their powers again at the age of 18. (Age range flexible)

    There is one known exception to the rule that no one over the age of 18 retains their powers. This world-weary woman ends up responsible for wrangling these gifted teenagers into something resembling a fighting force, while coping with the fallout from their absurdly powerful gifts.

  • A team of supernatural hunters saves a man from a surprise attack by a bunch of monsters. He is quiet, friendly, agreeable, if strangely calm about what had just happened to him. He listens to their information, before they tell him that he's been targeted by the monsters, marked for death by the clan, and they will protect him until they can safely get him to a new life. He tries to refuse their offers, but they won't listen.

    What they don't know is that the man before them is the Hunter, a man of legend among the hunter culture.

  • A teenager / young adult with unnatural supernatural power is attempting to remain low-key until they graduate. Unfortunately, that's difficult with a group of rowdy friends, and unexpected problems cropping up at every corner.

  • In a world where everyone pledges themselves to a god upon their nameday, there is no greater shame than losing the favor of your patron god. A warrior pledged himself to the god of death, swearing an oath of service he never thought he'd break. He never dreamed that, by losing his god's favor, he would be cast aside completely, sentenced to a fate to never die. Now he seeks one of two things: find a way to regain his god's favor, or die for real.

  • A powerful psychic hides from disturbance and interruption in a mental asylum, until they are accidentally discovered by a nurse / another patient / a criminal / the police, and are reluctantly drawn into their shenanigans.

  • A deranged entity is trapped by a group of powerful warlocks, who intend to dispel it from the world in order to protect their bound city. However, rather than being sent back to whatever plane these creatures come from, it instead binds itself to an apprentice of the warlocks. Their lives are now tied together, and the apprentice cannot expel the weakened entity until it reaches full strength, or kill herself. While the apprentice is prepared to make this sacrifice, the entity will not allow it, and saves her life, one way or another.

    In order to prevent the demon from regaining its strength, she is forced to constantly put herself into ever more dangerous situations, using the demon’s strength to keep her alive and temporarily weakening it. All the while, she looks for a way to sever their connection and cast the creature out, or, at least, block its control long enough to succeed in killing herself.

  • A young man in a modern or futuristic world throws logic to the wind and attempts to summon a mythical creature from deep within the earth to be his servant, at the cost of his soul after his death. Much to his astonishment the attempt succeeds, bringing him a powerful servant that will follow his every order. Together they will set about taking over the world.

  • An adult/child/teenager who always travels back into his own past upon his death is hunted and killed by an entity that can control time. No matter how many lives s/he lives, how much knowledge or power s/he acquires, the entity always finds him/her, and seems to grow stronger as s/he does. Until a normal person unexpectedly interrupts the cycle, and kills the entity. The reincarnater determines to dedicate his/her existence to protecting/serving/other things the person who saved their eternity, through the endless flow of time.

  • An ordinary high school/college student unexpectedly found they possessed the power to change the world. They believed it their responsibility to do so, and began to remotely perform impossible acts, changing small portions of the world for the better. People all across the world witnessed these acts, and began to worship the unknown person performing them as a god.

    However, as time passed, as is the case with many stories of people trying to do good, what this formerly ordinary person had to do began to get more and more morally questionable. Eventually, it led law enforcement directly to their door.

    With their face now plastered across every surface, the person goes on the run, only to unexpectedly find themselves taken in, sheltered, protected, by the people who had begun to worship them. And those same people give this person the opportunity to continue their work, against any an all opposition, no matter the consequences.

  • A man with unnatural knowledge of the future drags along a reluctant companion on a wild journey across the country. However, his companion quickly realizes that this man is able to lead them both through catastrophe to obtain absurd benefits, and decides to go along for the ride.

  • Have some broad categories for inspiration because wow too many tabs:

    Reincarnation
    Soldiers
    Genetic manipulation / science experiments
    Immortality
    Xianxia cultivation cheats
    Scary Reputations
    Magic high school / college
    Gods, Demons, and Monsters
    Game-like systems in real life
    Time loops / memories of the future
    Psychic powers
    Ancient magic resurfacing
    Executioners
    Loyal Servants
    Possession

I'm a let-down as a partner, your partner-search made me laugh and you hit me straight into a super power craving because I'm an utter weeb that went on a binge-watch of anime.

I mean, hi. Let's talk weeb to each other if you're interested.

I made the mistake (???) of starting the Irregular at Magic High School again. I really need to read the novels... Someday. Someday.

Either way, I"m now even more desperate for new partners! Someone come save me from myself and help me write beautiful, beautiful badassery~~

I'm intrigued by your interest check...but my only issue is that I too like to play extremely OP AF characters, so I dunno how that might flow...

mix of the two. I usually will defer to a partner's idea of the plot if they're the ones bringing it to me, mostly because I assume they understand their own idea better than I do, but might take the reins if we're working on my plots or am asked to do so.

Are you still looking? If so I would be interested in either your Princess' Bodyguard or Youth of Gods plots.

This seems interesting! The manga classic trope caught my eye, any chance we can mix it with My Hero Academia universe? (in case you're not familiar with it, it's basically a universe where everyone has some sort of super power and there are professional heroes to keep the peace. In that verse the most important hero of legend is All Might but that can totally be your character instead).

Incidentally, I'm in the process of crating my first OC and currently he's just very ordinary and not really powerful so he'd be a good counter to your all powerful character. The catch is I tend to prefer MxM shipping. I'm definitely OK with action scenes and I'm a sucker for romance.

If that sounded interesting feel free to PM me so I can tell you more about my character!

Hi there! Are you still looking? I absolutely love soldier/mythological/gods and monsters RPs and you’ve inspired me to dust off a character I haven’t written in a little while :)

Gonna give this another nudge! The initial tide is over; I've picked up a few new stories and lost a few that didn't quite click. If anyone else is interested in playing out some power fantasies, head over this way!
