I know there is already a game or two but I'm still hoping to get this one running. I'm just looking for a small dedicated group to begin with, with the possibility of growing the numbers later.

The idea is that it will take place during the early days of discovering 'Perks' with less than 20% of people having them. This will be about how the world and you adapt to this new phenomenon.

I would like a very loose based stat system that just shows a characters strengths vs weaknesses. Where characters can develop but aren't good at everything. (Open to ideas)

So yea, let me know if you are interested and any ideas/suggestions.

Ooh lastly I was thinking
1st generation- you were one of the first to develop powers. No one taught you anything about it. You are older, wiser and have better control of your quirk than the younger generations. You start in a more prominent position and might have a bit of fame/connections already but your quirk will never be as strong as the later generation.

2nd gen - In the middle, you have had a quirk for a little while, whether you have shared this info or not is another story. Your parents probably had one. Perhaps you have already had time to think what this means for you and started preparing.

3rd gen - You know about quirks from TV and possibly your parents but you wouldn't have done much training or prepping for it since as of only a few weeks ago you were just another ordinary teen. While you have little control over it now, your quirk holds high potential.

Police force is subtly against all quirk users while no laws exist yet.
There are radical groups in support and against.

I was thinking those titles don't exist yet, you will be labeled according to your actions.

If you become drunk on power and think you have the right to break the law then you will become a villain. Maybe you start trying to help people but nothing goes your way so you slip between both roles. Perhaps you hid your quirk silently keeping it to yourself but continually noticed the way it could help people until you could no longer ignore it.

But short answer is yeah either.
But there's a possibility to fall between the lines.

I'd be down, but I'm not at all up to date with the show. (Haven't had the time to watch the second season yet)

EDIT: I have an idea in mind for a 3rd Gen who is in denial about their quirk.

Ok I should start working on making a fancy intro post.

What ideas has everyone got for their quirk?




The day has come!



Breath stopped at 5AM, like a permeating calm

Biting my nails at the emergency exit –
which way is tomorrow?

The day has come!



Nights that never end… endlessly falling rain…

Both exist in this terrible world.

So it’s not odd in the slightest – you’re always tripping up, half-asleep

I’m really not trying to criticize you for it



Playing alone in your fantasy world,

Will you still feel embarrassed about the things you imagine there?



This maze is tangled, so tangled, are you really still planning to go?

The sound of a bell, played by a tiny adventurer, signals a new beginning!
Even your destination: don’t know, don’t know

Are you sure you aren’t scared?

But each step you take will change you

The day has come!


Those you can’t seem to understand… those who pretend to understand you…

Both exist in this terrible world.

This place is certainly not Hell, but I expect it’s not Heaven either

It exists as a perforation in the very middle.



As the cards divine what tomorrow will bring 
You’re likely aware their meaning carried off by the wind.



This maze is tangled, so tangled, are you really still planning to go?

The sound of a bell, played by a tiny adventurer, signals a new beginning!

Even your destination: don’t know, don’t know

Are you sure you aren’t scared?

But each step you take will change you

The day has come!



You want to keep believing in the things you’ve seen with those two eyes, but as you cower in the dark

Your horrible predictions are morphing into the truth:
so cry on, cry on!



Real survivors, with undying effort, stab each other in the back 

Those who survive are the winners, and “fairness” is but an illusion!

While the Secret Hunter, creeping your way, tells of worldly affairs;

He sharpens his claws on the emergency exit – which way is tomorrow?

The day has come!

Premises

Mankind has recently started developing superpowers, commonly being referred to as "Quirks" with just under 1 in 10 or 10% of the population having some kind of superpower. These new abilities are mostly minor and often go unnoticed. There are however the few that make an impact.

Some have found they can excel at certain jobs and make an easy living while others have found fame or notoriety in their actions, either deliberate or by accident.
This unexplained sudden gift can also be a curse. There is much of the population that looks down upon 'quirk' users negatively. Quirks users are still a major minority and there are those that think it's unnatural, unholy but mostly unfair.

No one is yet sure how to handle the situation or what is next, but one thing is for sure, people fear what they don't understand. Rumours already circulate the world that only increase the divide between quirk users and not. Stories of institutes torturing and testing people's quirk abilities. Then there is the tales of quirks that are so powerful they make men above and unbound by the laws of civilisation.

Hate groups, sympathy groups, and strange cults have all been born from intolerant lies, fear, deceit and misunderstandings.
Meanwhile rumours of war between the people constantly rise as parliament rush and desperately try to push through new laws to balance and end all this chaos.

This is your story, where will you sit in the grand scheme of things? What future and name will you make for yourself? If any.

I'll be doing a 3rd gen with a self-suggestion quirk. Quite a powerful quirk but as a person, they'd be useless.

@Dark Light Very nice, I like it.

As for Quirks, I was thinking my character would have something along the lines of 'Give and Take'.

Similar to that guy whose name escapes me where one half of him controls fire and the other ice, except one half of her body is able to transfer her own vitality into another person she touches, healing them and restoring vigor in exchange for her own. The other half has the opposite effect; she drains the life force of whoever she is touching, using it to restore her own body.

Attribute assessment

The B.B.A.A.P.P


This is an assessment of your characters abilities as compiled and completed by an anonymous source.

Reading your report
.

ATTRIBUTES

Two of the following attributes are highlighted as your weaknesses. This is represented by a single score of 1 next to them. These are areas you could improve on and don't hold many talents in.

Next there are two areas that you are, well, average at. These are represented by a score of two. You are ok in these areas and get by. You have a small range of average talents here or perhaps a few really good ones.

Lastly are the two qualities you have been deemed to excel in. You either have a lot of talents that lend to these qualities or posses some major outstanding skills. This is the area and attributes you are known for.


TALENTS

Each attribute has corresponding talents. Not every possible talent is listed here just the ones you have shown promise in. Talents are measured by 'Talent Points'. Each attribute has a number of talent points equal to the attribute score x 2
Talents use the same three point scoreboard as attributes but 1 signifies some practice or experience. ie;
1=Above average,
2=Good,
3=Exceptional


OVERALL ASSESSMENT

This is simply a collection of the assessor or assessors final notes, thoughts and opinions.

Ah, gotta love superhero roleplays. While I haven't watched the show it's based upon I have heard a fair summary of it. I'm interested in submitting a character of mine which might fit given the synopsis I've read thus far. She's a sound manipulator living in an abandoned mental asylum who lost her hands in a fight with a psychologist armed with a buzz saw.

It makes more sense in context.

It's on the darker side of this RP but all good.
It could have been at a quirk testing facility? Maybe move to an asylum after escaping?

@Dark Light - Well the doctor involved had taken her in largely because he recognized the fact she was gifted. His efforts were to try and figure out how it worked, using her as a test subject.

If you want I can change the location from an asylum to a testing facility. In condensed summary after she learns to cope with her quirk's unfortunate side effects she uses it to scare everyone out of the asylum, which works on all except the doctor who instead chooses to try and remove her brain to figure out how it works. As long as the site itself isn't required by plot to remain inhabited it's not a hard change.

Also, a slight alteration, she loses her hands after shattering a window with them as opposed to my earlier statement. It will all make more sense when I get the background written up of course.
