Hi! Can I hop in? Before I do, I have a few questions...

1: Are there other races besides human?

2: What are the limitations on powers/abilities?

3: Are there stats in this?

(I have not finished reading the rules so I think I will find some of the answers there too)

Aight so,

There are two races. Human and parahuman. If you are the former, you must explain why they are aboard The Promise (staff, guard, etc).

Limitations vary from ability to ability so there's no easy answer to this. I do reserve the right to outright reject certain abilities. Due to the nature of the setting some creative license is allowed in that our characters can manifest their abilities/mass shift/etc, but certain laws of physics must be abided by (no hard light structures, no solid shadows, etc). Try to shoot for street tier power levels, with building tier capabilities situationally. Please keep in mind that most of this setting is character interaction based, so the power should accentuate the character in some way.

There are no hard stats in this, but I do appreciate numbers here and there being used as reference (being able to lift a car (avg car weight ~4000lbs), can run 60mph, can crap thunder as loud as a jet (146db)).

I highly recommend reviewing some of the characters we have so far to get an idea of what we're looking for and joining the dicord to work with me and the other GMs, we're always happy to help.

If you need help with powers/powers limitations feel free to reach out. It is usually better to err on the side of more limitations. That also makes it more creative/a better challenge.

Looking forward to it!

So since Discord isn't really a thing in this world - where would you like characters set, ideas and such? Here? Or somewhere I've missed somewhere?


This is our Discord, should you choose to use it. Itโ€™s where we do all our scheming. The GMs will be happy to help you there in the character workshop section, or over DM if you'd prefer not to use it.

The Story So Far...

1.0 Houston, We Have Liftoff
  • The cast, currently consisting of Archie- a young man with one hell of an alter-ego, Lynn- a spitfire physically and metaphorically, Natalie- who takes girl power to a whole new level, Keaton- who can put Sherlock Holmes to shame, and Amelia- to whom distance means nothing, are all brought aboard The Promise through various means, and meet one another during orientation. As soon as introductions are made and the event is underway, Freaky-D - a unknown variable that found their way aboard through mysterious circumstances, falls from the ceiling to make his presence known to the station. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, Archie is injured and begins turning. Freaky-D makes his escape and Amelia follows, while Natalie and Lynn stay to evacuate the others and fight the reptilian goliath. They are successful, with Natalie using her strength to grapple the great lizard into the kitchen and Lynn setting off a makeshift bomb. Lynn and Archie are sent to the hospital.

    While the fight is taking place, Freaky-D and Amelia stumble upon an interrogation in which an unknown entity is torturing a Promise staff member. Freaky-D makes his escape and Amelia disappears from the scene, rather than confronting the entity- who then escapes uninhibited.




2.0 I'll Keep Coming
  • A week has passed since the cafeteria skirmish. Our cast have gone their separate ways. Archie and Natalie have been placed under quarantine but have shown that they have regained relative control again. Archie visits Lynn in the hospital, and assist her in sneaking out. While doing this, he is confronted by Freaky-D who gifts him an item known as the 'apology ball' which has unknown effects, and then escapes once more- only to be seen and chased by Promise security. Freaky-D is spaced, but gets better. As night falls the cast finds one another again, and Archie- intending to present flowers to Natalie in his apology to her, treads off the beaten path and into the woods in his search. He discovers the body of a staff member who had been tortured. He screams, attracting Lynn, Natalie, Amelia, and Keaton from the street. Amelia immediately recognizes the body, Lynn begins freaking out thinking that this is a ploy to pin the crime on her, and Natalie is reminded of her past. The cast fought one another over what to do, ultimately driving them apart when Natalie calls Promise security. Lynn, Amelia, and Keaton leave the scene. Archie and Natalie remain and are apprehended by Jacob Radvi- a good man with an unfortunate past.

    All of the cast are brought in the next day for questioning. Archie and Natalie are questions by Radvi, while Keaton, Lynn, and Amelia are questioned by Promise head of security- Gennedy Hardin. Information is shared, Archie eats a life changing donut, and Amelia is kept for further questioning. Archie invites Lynn, Natalie, and Keaton to a Chinese restaurant for lunch. During this time, the unknown entity from the previous arc sets off a series of events that results in the vast majority of Promise security and enforcement agents being trapped in one area, while also simultaneously releasing an entire wing of lunatics and dangerous criminals into the general population.

    Salamandra, one of the most well known criminals in the parahuman world, happens upon the group while Death Head- a hulking vampire animal lurks outside the restaurant. Lynn tries to appease Salamandra, but is laughed at. Salamandra attempts to cradle rob Archie- but is stopped by Lynn. A large fight ensues. Natalie makes her escape, but is intercepted by Death Head and begins fighting for her life. Archie crawls away, in the throws of transforming once more- only to be directed by Keaton- who had taken to pulling away from the battle in the main room and telling his deteriorating mind who is friend and who is foe. Lynn is getting creative in her defense against Salamandra, but the criminal is far more adept at battling with people and her ability. As Salamandra gains the upper hand- a newly turned Archie throws an entire refrigerator at her and cripples her- evening the fight.

    Archie leaves the premise- intent on stopping Natalie from losing herself further in blood rage after her narrow victory over Death Head. Their battle is short, but handled with utmost care unbecoming of a monster of Archie's size. Feeling awaken between the two. Salamandra's powers of heat absorption are put to their limits and she begs for mercy. Lynn beats Salamandra to death and leaves the premise to hunt down Archie despite her incredibly beaten state, and narrowly avoids the explosive withering affects of Salamandra's power withering her body postmortem- killing several innocent bystanders in the process and emotionally scarring Lynn for life.

    Promise Security eventually breaks free, with Freaky-D rescuing Radvi and assisting occupants into safe havens with the help of Eli- a new comer who makes hangovers seem like nothing at all. Eli and Radvi assist one another in saving as many as possible while Freaky-D searches for stragglers- happening upon the unknown entity. Freaky-D and the unknown entity begin fighting, only for Freaky-D to quickly turn the tables with high volume meme power- discovering a weakness. Freaky-D collects a sample of the unknown entity as it makes it escape, and returns it to Radvi.




3.0 Where Anything Goes
  • A month has passed since the breakout, and the school has finally addressed the accident. While doing so, as a form of damage control the headmaster has announced that the yearly homecoming dance will be a station-wide event. Radvi presents the sample to Trevor, one of Promise R&D and acquires tracking chips and glasses that recognize the unknown entity's presence. Archie, Natalie, Lynn, Keaton, Eli, and Radvi all convene at a Panda Express to make further plans- with Eli pep talking Archie into asking Natalie out.

    While convening, Black and White- two incorporeal entities serving a greater force appear and make the cast aware of their importance in a grand scheme, and Freaky-D once again falls from the rafters. This garners various reactions from the cast- most notably, Lynn storms off. Archie goes after her, but is burnt and runs away. Lynn, guilty continues on her way and goes to the gym to meet Gen- a man who likes his space and can really remind you of that fact if need be. Radvi explains to the cast that the event shouldn't have happened and has evidence of foul play involved. Freaky-D displays the recording of the battle that he was involved in. Archie recognizes the unknown entity as a woman who referred to herself as Arianna the first day he arrived at The Promise. The cast disperse, with Radvi speaking to Gennedy and Trevor- being given the first ever nullification technology and being reprimanded by Gennedy.

    A few days pass, and it is now Homecoming night. The streets, forests, and buildings are alive with spirit. Amelia makes her return. Amelia- looking to rejoin the world, Lynn- celebrating some good news, Eli- mourning the loss of close friends, and Keaton- looking to learn more about Arianna all begin heading to the woods to drink and enjoy some time away from the prying eyes of Promise Personnel. Archie nervously makes his way to pick up an equally nervous Natalie for their first ever date.

    To be continued...
