Hey everyone. Welcome to Redux 2047, where you get the chance to play a damaged, washed-up superhuman that the world chewed up and spit out. We've just started the second act, in which we visit Denver, the city of Envoy the demigod. Bear in mind that supers unaffiliated with government or industry are now banned by law, so this will be fun.

  • We are looking for another person or two to join. There's only a few active characters right now, but they're pretty stable in terms of activity.
  • This is a world in the process of being ravaged by the onset of rising temperatures, seas, and tensions around the globe. Worldbuilding is welcome and encouraged!
  • The year is 2047, of course, but due to the presence of superheros and their technology, I am going to be pretty flexible in terms of what technology is mainstream. This is a Cyberpunk world. There are sprawls, there is body augmentation, and all that jazzhop. Creativity is encouraged.
  • Characters with a little baggage are preferred. Mature, grizzled veterans with lives beyond their superhero years: Children, jobs, a lot of shit in their lives, etc. You were a superhero, but maybe not anymore. If you want to be a teenage super, bear in mind that this is a world that doesn't really want you around.

C H A R A C T E R .// T E M P L A T E //.


  • Name:
  • Alias/Callsign:
  • Age:
  • Powers:
    Powers can be just about whatever you like. However, bear in mind that time-based powers are going to be hard to work with in a group setting, as are overly-powerful telepathic powers. I'll probably be pretty strict on those.
  • Weaknesses:
    What works against your powers? Preferably not just "hard to control" or "takes time to charge up". Those weaknesses are hard to quantify in this medium, so something more concrete would be appreciated.
  • Appearance:
    Pictures and Description are both welcome. Semi-realistic pictures preferred, to match the theming. Clothing description isn't required, but can be included if desired.
  • Equipment:
    What does your superhero carry around with them on duty? Includes weapons, gear, vehicles, etc.
  • Origin:
    How did your hero get their powers? What sort of life did they lead before obtaining their powers? Who are some of the people that are key players in their lives? What have they been doing since 'retiring' the cape and mask?
  • Personality:
    What makes your hero tick? Who are they behind the mask? What are they afraid of, what do they love? What are their flaws and weaknesses? What makes them strong?
  • Misc Facts:
    Anything else you'd like to include.
Note: I don't need too much here, as long as it's well written and cohesive. Just enough to establish your character as a player.

So, I buried another partner this week. Jackson.

We were on a routine call out, just checking another street as always. It was one shot, and it wasn't even meant for him.

It's getting harder everyday out there, crime is at an all time high and every other week we lose officers and special agents. Hell, I'm a trained special agent myself and I've been pushed down to fill in on beat work because we're stretched so thin. Everyday there's a new threat.

It started with that new drug. They call it Nirvana. It's a synthetic creation and we can't track where it's being made, who made it, and who is distributing it. We just have to see the husks it leaves behind, the broken families, the bodies... We thought it was contained within the underbelly of society but it's spreading.

Then of course there is Luke. Luke Bennett. He's that sketchy candidate for office, he's picking up a lot of traction with people based on hate and fearmongering in our underprivileged communities. He's a hateful, power-hungry man who is building some kind of cult. We can't stop him because I'm sure he has blood money running through all sorts of departments. You know, just the usual shady shit.

The gap between the rich and the poor is getting wider, people are losing their jobs, their homes... There is a crisis about to happen with basic resources - more and more people are on food stamps, more and more people are forced between choosing to keep the lights on for a night or feed themselves. Just last week seven teenagers died from exposure to irradiated and toxic water because the nuclear plant dumped some in a pond where kids are known to play and hang out. We are expecting more fallout from this yet.

I'm trying my best... To hold it together, to keep a strong front. To be someone in the community that can guide people through these dark hours but I'm constantly stopped by something else. I'm strained, God I can't remember the last time I slept properly. I just feel that we're on the brink of a complete disaster. The wrong people are being given power and they don't want to change anything - they want to make things worse.

Cedar Fort is where I was born and raised and it used to be a great place. Now it's just ugly. I feel like I can't help anyone anymore, and that's why I'm reaching out to you...

12 years ago you kept darkness from our doors with your gifts, your powers, your spirit. We believed in you, put our trust in you. Then something happened, maybe we over-policed you... Some of you died, you had your own issues but you all disappeared, went off the radar completely. Of course, you could. Your identities were secret - I could well have walked past any of you, maybe you made my coffee... The point is that I don't know who any of you are, except for one.

Tonight I investigated an apartment in the city. Dead guy, kind of a usual call. I called it in and checked out the apartment and found in the back of his closet a suit, yeah, a suit. Turns out that Harrison Moore was the real life persona of the Superhero known as Hex.

That's not all I found, turns out Mr Moore was either going absolutely bananas, or knew something was coming. That was his power right? He was some kind of Warlock? I found his journals, his computer files - everything. He was adamant of some kind of apocalyptic event, and I've been checking and so far a lot of the things he wrote about have happened. The water thing? He wrote of something similar weeks ago. He's written repeatedly about a Reality Bringer. He seems to have died of a suspected overdose of Nirvana, he was alone when he died but I don't think this was accidental.

If my pleas and fucking sad story haven't intrigued you, I want this to. At some point, Moore was your friend and colleague. I believe that he was the only known Superhero to have had affiliations and relationships with all of the various factions around the US and globe. He was really one of the good guys, and he died alone - sitting on this discovery...

So please, if you're out there - any of you. We need you more than ever before.

Hex was the best of you, and he knew something was about to happen. So I'm asking you - if any of you are still alive, it's time to come out of the shadows. I'm sorry, I'm no storyteller - I have no superpowers of persuasion. I'm just an agent at the end of her rope, with no other options left now.

We need you.

We need hope.





Welcome to Redux! A cyberpunk/futuristic Superhero roleplay with a twist.

You will be playing an older, jaded superhero who was forced back into normal life. The world seemingly no longer wanted you. Perhaps you fucked up, perhaps fame got too much, perhaps you had a rivalry with another hero... For whatever reason, things went sour for you, and for 12 years you've lived a normal life.

Until now.

A video plea from Special Agent Addison Reynolds of Cedar Fort has been pushed through secretive old communications channel that she - and you, have access to. It's time to return to a world that turned it's back on you. It's time to put your suit back on, even if it no longer fits. You're the only one who can save us from the disaster prophesied by your old colleague, Hex.

Are you ready for it?

Rules and Things

As per the plot, looking for characters who are more mature, grizzled veterans with lives beyond their superhero years. They have children, jobs, a lot of shit in their lives etc. It can be as dark as you like. You are a superhero who was chewed up and spat out. So with that in mind, no teen superheroes.

This is a futuristic/cyberpunk style setting - so I'll be looking at what kind of tech we'll have access to, but I'm thinking Mass Effect-esque. Technology that is helpful but doesn't allow you to take shortcuts.

This is advanced level, so I'm looking for people who can commit not only to advanced standards, but to the roleplay long term. Posting expectations are a post every 2 weeks. If we can have a faster pace then great, but I want all selected players to be on board together.

Be considerate, communicate. If you can't post for whatever reason, just let me know. If you're working on collabs with other players, let them know too.

Be kind. I really, really, really don't want dick behaviour in the OOC, it doesn't foster the kind of atmosphere I like to create. So be nice to each other, respectful, and helpful. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. I will remove people who start ruining the groove.

No Godmoding or Powerplaying. This is a story, not a competition to be Billy or Betty badass. Keep your characters balanced. I don't want to enforce strict rules that stifle your creativity in creating a superhero, I will always be reasonable and work with you to create a powerful hero with the skills that you want but you have to be prepared to tone some things down if necessary.

Keep it PG-13. You know the rules of the guild. No naughty posts in the IC. If you really have to, take it to PM.





Character Sheet



Please Note;
This is not a first come first served roleplay. You are not guaranteed a place in the game. Submissions for characters sheets are open until the 28th August - where I will give feedback and pick players. I'll try my best to give feedback on sheets that come in until then, and please join the Discord if you want faster answers, or to spitball ideas. I'm imagining about 5-6 players, but there's always room for more based on merit of character and sheet :)

Any other questions, direct them to me - or join the Discord.

See you soon, Supers!

Done. Needs some minor touch ups but I'm satisfied the way it is right now.

This looks fun. I haven't done an advanced rp in a while so if I'm not up to par I understand, but I'll do my best. Then again I am kind of self conscious about that part. I will work on getting a character up and going, too bad I'm gone this weekend.

@StormflyxI'm not a fan of WIP, so here's just the whole damn thing.



Tear it apart, people. I can take it. Really...

Apologies again for redoing stuff, but I keep on getting caught up on wanting to implement Hex in my character's background. This concept is really based on the idea that even someone as lawful good as Hex as to have made a mistake at some point, with the best intentions in mind of course (*cue spooky arcane rituals*).

i do hope this is acceptable... been trying to make this concept work for a little while now.

Edit: Reworked and renamed to be less OP sorry about that, sleep deprivation does funny things to me.
