P R E M I S E



The world has changed pretty drastically over the past few decades.

Technology advanced, lives got longer, people started donating more to Africa. You get the gist.

Oh, and pretty recently something about the human genome made the news. I wont bore you with the details, but the gist is that some people started producing a new energy- one that gave them superpowers. It was like something right out of a comic book. There weren't heroes like in the stories though. People are innately self driven and these powers were... not used to benefit much of anyone.

The world changed after that. These gifted individuals might have had power, but the regulars had numbers, and fear, and religions, and weapons that fired high caliber lead at supersonic speeds which pretty much put anything that wasn't made of stone down as quick as a regular person. They had to find other means for the golems. Civil wars raged, and a lot of people lost their lives. It was a dark time in history, and the scars of the past still haunt the world of today.

And while they were continually defeated by superior force and numbers, more of these... paranormal humans, or Parahumans as people began calling them, kept popping up around the globe. While there were the bad apples- there were also the good ones too. The ones that were paramedics using their electricity to revive their patients, or using their ability to read minds to teach more effectively. The comic books ended up being pretty inaccurate. There weren't many of them, less than a thousandth of the population. Do the math though- in this world that's still over ten million people.

The world saw that these people could slaughter and burn, but it also saw that they could save lives and innovate. The world called for change again- To train these gifted people to push the world forward through academies and learning programs, and the world came together towards one common goal.

A promise for a greater tomorrow.

Not to be confused with The Promise of course.

The Promise is the world's most incredible endeavor yet. An Academy in orbit.

A school among the stars.

The Promise is where you're going, actually. You've either been chosen through a draw and agreed to go to school in a giant space station 22,000 miles away from the ground, or you've been dragged there kicking and screaming to to taught how to be civil or to be ejected into space for the safety of those around you. Your world is changing very soon, and not just because you're going to be leaving it.

Oh, and before I go- yes, you can turn the gravity off.

A quick note, sheets will not be denied or accepted until the OOC is up. Feel free to post them or DM them to me. We can also talk about them in discord- but nothing official yet. In terms of strength, try to go for street level superpowers. Building level metas will be accepted conditionally on a case by case basis. Think Marvel's Defenders TV show.




Final Notes

Hi everyone! I'm looking for some fairly motivated and dedicated people who will be around and willing to explore plots that I come up with as well as scheme up new ones along with me for everyone else to jump in on should they see fit. I'm active pretty regularly, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask and if you're feeling extra spicy, join The Promise discord with this link!

Massive shout out to both @Ruler Inc and @Lord Wraith for their help. This thread wouldn't exist without 'em.
