"Over the last six years, I've watched Engine City merge with Chase Chemical, and surrounding metropolitan neighbors to form Mega City in the southeastern United States. Chase Chemical is the largest privately owned chemical plant and lab facilities in the world with over one hundred and twenty thousand employees including it's own police forces and fire houses. The region was officially named 'Mega City' once the population hit the ten million mark. To think the nation's capital is less than five hours away and only home to a little more than six hundred and seventy thousand people. For all these people, at least two percent of the population is superhuman. I tried going the powerless vigilante route for a few years, but I can't compete with people who can knock over skyscrapers or run across water. Lately though... I've noticed a few dead superhumans showing up in my neighborhood as well as a staggering amount of missing persons reports. It's happening in the corner of Mega City called the Highlands that are up in the Appalachian Mountains. The more recent victims were twenty years old or younger.... I've come out of retirement to try and find out who's killing these kids. The only way I know how to protect them is to gather them. Train them. And maybe together we can figure out who's trying to kill others like them.

My name is John Blake, and I'm just a guy with a bow. For awhile the papers called me... Arrowcaster."


s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/6c/…

Blake is around 40 years old, is going gray, and will get hurt early on taking him out of the field for more of a mentor role. He'll be a frequent NPC. Somewhere in the middle of Oliver Queen on the Arrow tv series and Old Man Bruce from the Batman Beyond future. He'll train us in a former enemy's underground base of operations he shut down early on in his career.







Welcome to Mega City obviously takes certain cues from the Arrow tv series. However, aside from the mentor character being a Green Arrow knock-off and the time jumps that's about as far as the connection goes. Everyone's characters except for maybe one or two will need to be superhuman. During the course of the first arc we'll introduce our characters being approached by Arrowcaster, train with him at the HQ, fight a couple minor villains and stop day to day crime here and there, while also teasing the future one year later with the big bad in the occasional time jumps. From there sky's the limit.

Essentially the RP is meant to be the best of two worlds. On one hand, we're RP'ing as rookie heroes with little to no training with Arrowcaster as our mentor. On the other hand, we also tease a darker future where we're facing off against the big bad as more seasoned heroes yet still getting our asses kicked in different ways. Eventually the stories will lead into one another and the time jumps will cease. I mainly just wanted everyone to be able to have their cake and eat it too. The darker future and plot will also make it easier to write out any drop-outs who could simply fall victim to the person or persons taking out superhumans. More on that if we make it to an IC/OOC. As far as the other enemies we'll face, I figure it could be up to the group to come up with some of the superhuman criminals and situations our noob heroes get themselves into. It's a big city, with the addition of mountain terrain, so there's not much we can't do. Wanna fight against a small population of vampire like creatures hiding in the caves? We could do that. Maybe there's a particular cop who's got beef with Arrowcaster who's giving us a hard time? Maybe one of YOU could be the superhuman killer?!?

This will be my first RP in months, so if there's enough interest I'll throw up a character sheet model. Likely won't be like the standard stuff in my RP's, as there will be bits for your heroes in the present as well as the one year later future. Arrowcaster recruiting our heroes will likely be part of a sample post at the end of the CS.

So who's down for an original universe of heroes not tied to DC or Marvel? Anybody out there?!

I'll get a CS template up after work this evening. I've already been developing a character for this that's a little bit Ben10, little bit Green Lantern, and a dash of the Guyver. His powers will come from an alien artifact stuck to his arm....

I have a half cooked idea set up around portals, trying to see if I can get it set up properly, otherwise I might have some sort of absurd upbeat version of Raven of Teen Titans.

Secret Identity –
Codename –
Age – (17 – 23)
Powers –
Weaknesses –
Personality – (5 words that best describe your character)
Experience – (0-365 days)
Day Job –

How did Arrowcaster find you?

BRIEF Bio –

How will your character be different one year later?

Sample Post – (Arrowcaster recruiting your character)

__________________________________________________

Secret Identity – Judah Marlowe
Codename – Titan
Age – 19
Appearance -


Powers – The alien gauntlet can create energy blasts as well as project a force field of energy. The same blue energy can also be used as a large blue robot arm that will eventually lead to creating a full mech suit construct.

Weaknesses – He's only human and possesses the same weaknesses as anyone in standard civilian clothes. Eventually gets a light body armor that provides a little more durability.

Personality – reckless, loud, humorous, impatient, honest

Experience – (16 days)

Day Job – Works as a laborer refurbishing buildings, houses, and apartment complexes.

How did Arrowcaster find you? (see Sample Post)

BRIEF Bio – Judah was your average kid from Highland. He grew up poor and eventually had to drop out of Jefferson High School his senior year to work full time to help take care of his terminally ill mother. Six months ago she finally passed away and Judah continues to deal with it all. His father ran off years earlier without a word.

Judah got his own apartment in Highland, above an old arcade on the outskirts of the neighborhood. His boss, a somewhat sleazy contractor by the name of Blake, had helped him get set up. Over the last several months Judah used his job to take his mind off of everything. That was when it was simple. Sixteen days ago, Judah found the alien gauntlet behind a building he had been working on.

How will your character be different one year later?

The gauntlet will begin growing up his arm and into his chest, and he will have developed the construct into a full mech suit. Think of it like Green Lantern's super move construct in the Injustice 2 game...

Sample Post – (Arrowcaster recruiting your character)

Sixteen days ago Judah Marlowe thought he saw a falling star land in some woods behind a building he was refurbishing. Judah happened to be taking a break outside, and taking a leak on a tree as there was no working plumbing in the facility nor a port-o-potty in sight. Investigating the blue glow, Judah discovered the severed arm of some sort of alien, with a tech'ed out gauntlet. After the hand of the alien arm began moving a blue flash saw the gauntlet now permanently stuck to the young man's arm. Now with a bio-mechanical forearm and a little bit of pee on his pants, Judah ran off in the direction of his apartment.

Ten days ago the contractor, Blake, visited the unfinished job and wondered where Judah had been the last few days. Around that time a mosquito took fluid from the remaining alien flesh in the woods, before landing on some mutt dog for a few moments. Taking a bit of the dog's blood and exposing it to the alien DNA was enough to kill the homeless runt... but then the blood sucker landed on Blake and exposed him to two different types of DNA.

Two days ago the contractor had been completely transformed into some alien dog hybrid creature. Judah had used the powers of the gauntlet to defeat the monstrosity and unknowingly caught the attention of Arrowcaster.

Here is my character sheet. I was inspired by Captain America. How is it?

Secret Identity – Max Tacticularius Radical
Codename – Maximum Tacticularius Radical
Age – 17
Powers – Have you ever thought what an eagle can do? Have you ever thought about how many eagles currently exist on this earth. Have you ever fully read the wikipedia page of an eagle. Have you ever vigorously pondered upon the very concept of eagles mating together? Maximum Tacticularius Radical will make you consider all those questions when you battle him for the first time.

Now, you're probably wondering what I meant. Was Maximum Tacticularius Radical raised by an eagle? Is Maximum Tacticularius Radical the genetic hybrid of an eagle and a human? Does Maximum Tacticularius Radical know the magical arts of eagleomancy? Can Maximum Tacticularius Radical copulate with eagles?

Maximum Tacticularius Radical would like to say yes.

Because the actual truth is that he doesn't have any powers at all.

He's just a man in an eagle costume.

Weaknesses - Maximum Tacticularius Radical fears anything un-american. Chinese food, communism, refugees, the very concept of something existing outside of America makes him recoil in fear. If you were to make him eat a single dumpling, he would start convulsing and fall on the floor in a spastic, foaming fit.

Personality – Patriotic - Nationalistic - Jingoistic - Awesometacular - Brotacular

Experience – 0

Day Job – Being a mascot for a cereal brand.

How did Arrowcaster find you? Offering free cereal samples at the supermarket.

BRIEF Bio – Born to a rich family in the Bronx, Max Radical was rejected from NYU when he attempted to publish a paper claiming that eagles could be used as an unlimited source of power. He went on a journey of self-discovery, spending all of his wealth to become the eagle.

It failed miserably.

Five years later after his self-imposed quest, Max was discovered by a cereal salesman by the name of Dick Dastardly Richard in an alleyway, hungry, skeletal and in a pitiful state. He demonstrated to the salesman his impressive knowledge of eagle reproductive cycles. Dick Richard saw a talent in this young, able soul as a mascot for his failing cereal brand.

Armed with a signpost and a 10 dollar eagle costume from a furry convention, Max found completion.

He was the eagle.

He felt like an eagle.

Sample Post -

Arrowcaster had heard rumours in the neighborhood about a strange person who had a manic fit with eagles. Someone that he could mould and train to be a part of his team. He had spotted it and gone over to offer it a position on his team.

The eagle turned around. It took a few seconds for Arrowcaster to realise that it wasn't a large eagle but rather a large man in an eagle.

" I'm looking for special - " A large wing batted the side of Arrowcaster's head, interrupting him as the man-eagle began to speak.

" What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my nest in the Navy Eagles, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Eagle , and I have over 300 confirmed prey kills. I am trained in eagle warfare and I’m the top shitter in the entire US eagle forces. You are nothing to me but just another prey. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of eagles cross the USA and your nest is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare wings. Not only am I extensively trained in eagle combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Eagle Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little β€œclever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit eagle fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo."

There was a moment of silence. Arrowcaster wiped a tear from his eye and raised a hand out, the first contact between man and majestic man-eagle.

" You're in."

Whew my longest post yet, by a lot

Secret Identity – Rick Harley
Codename – Roach Boy
Age – 17
Powers – Thanks to his cockroach DNA Rick has superhuman speed, though nothing overly impressive, and is able to run 70 miles per hour with the increased reflexes to match. He is also much stronger than the average human and can lift a maximum of 1500 pounds. Finally he can hold his breath for 40 minutes.
Weaknesses – He can't stand the cold as it makes him lethargic and if he stays exposed to temperatures of 32 Fahrenheit or below for long enough it can kill him. Also while he is tougher then baseline humans he is far below of being bullet or knife proof.
Personality – Intelligent, determined, levelheaded, honest, brave
Experience – One month
Day Job – Student

How did Arrowcaster find you?

It wasn't that hard to guess that the kidnapped and injected with cockroach DNA Rick was the same person as the new roach themed hero.

BRIEF Bio –

When Rick was ten years old he was kidnapped by a mad scientist obsessed wanting to create an army of super humans. The experiments performed on him consisted of repeated injections of genetically altered cockroach DNA and exposure to nonlethal amounts of radiation. Luckily he and several other guinea pigs were saved three weeks later with Rick being the only one to show zero signs of any kind of mutation.

However during puberty Rick began to notice his powers slowly developing. At first he thought it was a coincidence but a quick check of both his abilities and weakness to cold made it very likely it was due to the cockroach DNA. About nine weeks ago his powers reached their current level and he eventually decided to become a superhero hoping that the fact he hadn't been in the news for over five years meant most people would have forgotten about the kidnapping incident.

How will your character be different one year later?

He will use the resources of the hideout and the connections he made as a superhero to further the experiments performed on him on his own terms, first gaining the ability to grow an exoskeleton at will further increasing his strength and making him tougher. A while later he will add roachlike wings and finally accelerated healing and the ability to regrow lost limbs.

Sample Post – (Arrowcaster recruiting your character)

Rick still couldn't believe someone had found out who he was after just one month. He had known it was likely but he had taken precautions, like only going after small time thugs and never operating closer than a forty minute run from where he lived, sure his super hero and theme were a big hint but still.

At least this Arrowcaster guy didn't seem like a villain and if his offer was true it was too good to pass up on. "All right, a superhero team seems like a good idea and I clearly need more help than I thought."

Thought I throw my hat in the ring. The character's basically going to be a(n) (anti)hero version of Deadshot.

Secret Identity – Samuel Scott
Codename – Skillshot
Age – 20

Powers –
- Trajectory Alteration: Skillshot can use his power to slightly change the trajectory of projectiles he throws/shoots. The faster the projectile goes and the smaller it is, the easier he can change it. He only can make slight alterations and as such can not completely stop or reverse a projectile's trajectory, nor can he change its speed or velocity.
- Pretty Smart: Skillshot is a pretty smart guy. Although not directly a superpower, this helps him on a general basis in and outside the field.
- Weapon Expertise: Skillshot has experience with most standard weaponry like rifles and pistols.

Weaknesses –
- His physiology is completely human. Besides his power to bend trajectories and his above-average intellect and physique, he can die by anything that kills a normal human.
- Because of his focus on long-range combat, his melee skills are lacking. When enemies come too close, he will have a hard time dealing with them.
- He isn't much of a team player. He prefers to do things his way and also on his own.

Personality – Precise, no-nonsense lone wolf
Experience – 34 days
Day Job – Software Developer

How did Arrowcaster find you?

Skillshot has been active for a bit over a month now. He predicted his next target, and 'ambushed' him.

BRIEF Bio – Samuel Scott was a smart guy with a bright future. He soon discovered that he could change the trajectory of balls he threw through baseball, and when in his free-time shooting on his uncle's farm, he noticed the bullets went almost exactly where he wanted every time. He didn't know where this power came from, but he didn't look much into it either. However, he couldn't stand what happened in the city around him. Corruption, theft and assault everywhere. Someone had to step up, especially with all those heroes disappearing. When he rescued a person from being robbed by taking the gun from the robber and shooting him in the knee, he knew what he had to do. He would pick up arms against the darkness of this city.

How will your character be different one year later?

His skills would be developed, as he learns about his currently undiscovered parts of his powers as well as growing to fill his weaknesses by for example learning melee combat.
