  1. What I had in mind was your classic alternate universe centered around a caste system or monarchy. Its basically a mash up of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Bone City universes. Although it will heavily be based on the new novel, Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. You really do not have to have any prior knowledge of the books I just described except for a few key ones such as:

    The monarchy or Silvers and the servitude of Reds.

    Silvers - Powerful beings with differing supernatural abilities and blood the color of silver. Their powers vary from one to another and there has never been one born with two abilities.

    Reds - Normal humans (or mundane ;p) who work under the Silvers reign. Unlike the Silvers they do not possess any powers and bleed red blood instead of silver.

    Arenas - Built in or around/near most Red Villages to see the annual First Friday (of every month). Basically this is where Silvers fight each other in the Arena with the audience of Reds in the lower (hot, very uncomfortable) area while the traveling Silvers are located in the top area (with air conditioner and actual seats instead of wooden benches). Its mandatory to attend whether you like it or not. Some Reds are even rewarded for doing so (if they yell and at least pretend to be the most enthusiastic).

    Silver Powers:

    Animos - The ability to control animals.
    Blood Healer - The ability to heal ones self (not found in arenas)
    Burner - Can control the element of Fire. (They have bracelets that lets loose a small spark which they can easily manipulate into a raging inferno).
    Cloner - Able to clone one self.
    Eyes - (forgot -_- does not help that the wiki is underdeveloped too)
    Greenwarden - The power to control plants.
    Magnetron - Control over metal (silver, copper, lead, etc.)
    Nymph - The ability to control water (such as moisture in the air).
    Oblivion - The dangerous ability to destroy anything with one touch of a finger.
    Shadow - The ability to control light (to become invisible and other creative ways you can use with that power).
    Shiver - Power over temperatures ranging form cold to freezing (able to turn liquids into solid ice)
    Silence - The ability to prevent or stop the ability of other Silvers. (Basically the power to nullify other powers).
    Silk - (Again this power has slipped my mind ^^;)
    Singer - The ability to control others minds or choices with words (although they must make eye contact first).
    Skin Healer - The ability to heal others (but not themselves).
    Stoneskin - Speaks for itself. Ones skin turns into that of a hard rock like complexion.
    Storm - The ability to control the weather to an extent.
    Strongarm - Muscle bound Silvers with the ability to pulverize solid concrete with one punch. (common in arenas).
    Swift - Fast, incredibly quick silvers. ( Common in arenas)
    Telkies - The ability to control things with their minds. (levitating objects/people) (Common in arenas)
    Whisper - A rare talent even among silvers. The ability to break into ones mind and control every choice/ physically manipulate the body.
    Windweaver - The ability to control air.

    Silver Houses:

      • Arven - Silence
      • Blonos
      • Calore - Burner - Red, black, and silver
      • Carros - Strongarm
      • Eagrie - Eyes
      • Gliacon - Shivers
      • Haven - Shadows - Black
      • Iral - Silks - Dark blue and red
      • Jacos - Singers
      • Laris - Windweaver
      • Lerolan - Oblivion - Orange and red
      • Macanthos - Blood healers

      • Merandus - Whisper - Navy blue and white
      • Nolle - Storm
      • Nornus
      • Osanos - Nymphs - Blue and green
      • Provos - Telky - Gold and black
      • Rhambos - Strongarm - Brown and red
      • Samos - Magnetron - Black and silver
      • Skonos
      • Titanos - Oblivion - Purple and silver
      • Tyros
      • Viper - Animos - Green and black
      • Welle - Greenwarden - Green and gold
    Straight from the Wiki! (Because even I don't have that great of a memory ^^;)
    NOTE: Calore is the Silver Royalty

    I have a 1x1 request thread for this but I wanted to see how it would do in a group setting.

    You may play as one of the houses or a Red.
    NOTE: For the houses without color or an ability feel free to choose your own.

  2. This entire universe sounds very interesting, and if it takes off I'd like to throw interest at it! Haha

    Although I'm not entirely sure what I'd want to play.. 'm not very familiar with most of the inspiration for this.. But just from your explanation and some Google searching it sounds extremely interesting! Hah

  3. It certainly seems like an interesting r.p idea. I think if it gets off I'd like to play as someone with the oblivion powers. I hope it does well. By the way, any specific plot in mind?

  4. Thank you ^^ As the story progresses (right after we're done mingling with each other) I'm going to introduce a rebellion group called Red Guards. As you probably already could tell its going to be made up of Reds who are unsatisfied with the Silvers rule.

    I've got an idea as to how it could be stopped or at least slow their attacks for a time being. I'm open to any future suggestions however.

  5. That sounds, great. I hope this r.p can get off and run smoothly.

  6. This looks pretty interesting so far, I'm just wondering what is the main plot is going to be and the details of the background.

  7. The first arc is going to all revolve around the Red Guards while throwing in some hints here and there about the possibility of war among the neighboring Lakelanders (different Silver Kingdom) in order to gain much needed land.
  8. Sounds interesting. Is that list the full limit of Silver powers though? I tend to like to come up with original ones when I can. Also, a lot of them seem VERY over powered so for the purpose of the RP they'd have to be excluded (EG singer, oblivion)
    • Bucket of Rainbows Bucket of Rainbows x 1
  9. Yes ^^ These are all the powers so far mentioned in the book. Perhaps I'll limit some powers to only a few or just render them only for NPCs. I'd be happy to hear some more ideas though :)
  10. As it pertains to the powers like singer and oblivion I don't think they need to be completely excluded, just watered down until they aren't O.P

  11. An idea that I may have to use in the future ^^; I'm trying to keep the universe bases of The Red Queen more or less untouched but if I have. To revise something I definetly will.
