We know the stories of Hercules! We know all the greek myths of gods and goddesses. Of men who could carry the sun on a chariot! In the far north the heathens believe in a wolf who can swallow the world, and the celts believe in witches! Are you so shocked to hear these tales? Of how Hercules completed his trials? How Poseidon raised a sea from dirt! Of how the Morrigan cast a curse upon men!?

Then you will be shocked all the more to know that these are not myths. No. Super humans exist. These timeless entities who grace our comics do not just originate in paper. But in real events.

The premise, so far, is a superhero story, set in a historical period rather than modern day. Instead of a suped up car, Batman would be riding in a horse drawn carriage. Or the Hulk would be a gladiator. We'll be creating heroes for this period in history.

At the moment, I am looking for somebody with experience in a hero story to be my Co-GM.

EDIT: I'm open to different time periods. Nor is the goal to limit superpowers. Essentially, any kind of power you can see in a modern Superhero story is viable in some way in a renaissance period. You can even make power armor clockwork in design if you want. General goal is to open up heroes in different time periods.

Quite interested. If the interest check doesn't pick up a lot of people within a couple days you can try making another one in general interest checks. That helps, in my experience.

This one looks fairly promising. A fine deviation from the standard superhero formula to give it a finely unique air. I got a few ideas for characters I could bring to this.

I have on several occasions proposed a similar RP setting set in the mythic ages

Hey, we're back. I'm plotting out some details for a bigger announcement post, but it's good to hear there is interest in historical heroes.

I could have a good ol' crack at it. I could probably even use the powerset of an old character I'd like to recycle: HIGH-POWER THINKING.

Keep in mind I'm still deciding on the period. At the moment I'm pondering near the end of the baroque period, somewhere around 1750. So summoning a nuclear weapon is kinda out of the question.

Depends primarily on how that works. I may need some examples, since having 2018 tech in 1750 would probably be a bit... Well dangerous. Depending on how this ends up evolving.

@Reflection I was thinking swords and muskets anyway, maybe firearms if it's more modern

My idea for a hero was a guy with the power to communicate with insects and improve them. Also he doesn't age.

Flintlocks where the most advanced thing at the time. We can discuss weapon stuff later when you hash the idea out more.

I like that idea. A good start. Not sure about that last bit, but I'm sure there is a reason for it.

We'll discuss this in more depth once the power level is made more clear. I like the idea, but it could be restrictive depending on how the setting goes.

Well if we are all to be considered young meta then at the moment

Water elemental means Joco (Joe Co) at present is basically an infinite water cannon who hits as hard as a firefighting tug's water cannon (1,400 gpm) if she is on the water (ie on a boat) or in a rainstorm. In a temperate environment, she hits as hard as a police water cannon (800 gpm), in the desert she can still manage a green lawn lol.

This is because at the moment she makes water actually out of thin air drawing the water vapor right out of the air itself which makes her anchored to humidity.

She can survive in the water even able to move about 25 knots making her one of the fastest things in the water

I can see her slowly developing the ability to control water in the other odd ways elementals control theirs, don't worry Tidal waves are a long way off for Joco. I see her next stage shaping water beginning with amusing little forms to weeks or months later shields or huge balls of water falling from the sky.

As a side note, we as super-powered types usually age a bit slower than the rest of humanity and heal a bit faster which is why we age slower....at least that is the base I am begging we all receive

Healing example: Broken arm heals in two weeks...what's it like to have a cold?
