Name: Vincent Stone

Aliases: Vince

Age: 28

Gender: Male

Appearance: Vince is a well built individual, standing at 6'3" and weighing about 220 lbs, and is quite agile for his size. Vince is incredibly muscular due to his background training as a nationally ranked athlete. He has a buzzcut hairstyle and he has died his naturally brown hair black. Vince's eyes are a strangely bright amber hue but due to his abilities he can change his eye color to whatever he desires. His skin tone is fairly tan and he has a small scar running down his right forearm which he got from surgery to repair a broken ulna he suffered during a youth league football game. Vince's rough face is capped off by a well maintained and relatively thin beard.

Vince dons a simple yet stylish attire that calls back to his alma mater featuring a heavy dose of red and black. Vince can often be seen wearing a red or black T-shirt to more casual events but will also sport red, white, or black long sleeved button down collared shirts on more formal occasions. Depending on the weather he may wear a thin, black, long sleeve leather jacket. The jacket has two small pockets on each side which can be closed. He wears slim fitting, blue jeans and around his waist is a simple, black leather belt with a black metallic buckle. To cover his feet Vince typically chooses to wear a pair of red and white nike tennis shoes but while out on a mission will wear lightweight, black combat boots while on a mission.

For accesories Vince has a platinum necklace about twelve inches long that he received from his father upon graduating from the University of Georgia. He also wears a small silver ring on his left ring finer that has small rubies encrusted all the way around the band. Finally, Vince has several tatoos across his body including a chest piece tribute to his alma mater, the famous "One for all, all for one" quote above three swords on his left forearm that he got when he and two of his best friends first joined, as well as a scene of Spartan warriors down his left calf.

Personality: At his core Vince is a man of passion & convictions; he may not always be the most compassionate or understanding person in the room but he knows what he believes in and takes great pride in standing up for those beliefs. This is not to say that Vince doesn't have a caring side; on the contrary he can be supportive, understanding, kind, and loving in certain times. Vince does not make friends easily but to those whom he does consider friends he is extremely & does not take kindly to betrayal. Part of him still feels like his future & career as a professional athlete was taken away from him due to the negative stigman surrounding meta-humans that many people held (and some still do) when his powers first manifested twelve years ago & he has struggled to deal with and manage that anger & sometimes lashes out at friend and foe alike, although he's never hurt anyone he genuinely cares about. Vince tends to experience his emotions likes peaks & valleys but has been seeking therapy to maintain a more balanced emotional state which those close to him have admitted noticing. He is a natural competitor & is emerging as someone the other members of the group look to as a leader, although he doesn't feel quite ready for the role.

Abilities: Vince has the ability to manipulate his biomass down to the molecular level meaning he has the ability to transform his bone mass into razor sharp claws protruding from his hands, harden his skin to reduce damage, extend tendrils several meters long out from his body & even rapidly heal wounds that would normally be fatal. Vince is still learning to control his powers and struggles to use his powers in more than one way at a time.

Bio: Vincent Stone was born January 5th 2011 and grew up just west of Atlanta, Georgia to a wealthy family in a high socio-economic neighborhood where he attended one of the best schools in the state. He was an All-State high school football player and by his sophomore year already had several scholarship offers to play college football. Vince’s life was changed forever though on December 2, 2026 when, in the middle of a televised state playoff game, his powers suddenly emerged for thousands of people to witness as bone spikes emerged from his body and tore through his uniform. In the following months after the incident Vince’s parents took him to several of the best hospitals in the southeast to see what was going on. When it was revealed that what happened was a result of a genetic mutation his parents separated due to disagreements on how to handle the situation; his mother, Theresa, wanted to move out to California thinking they could find a cure and escape the drama whereas his father, Donovan, wanted to help his son learn to deal with his new abilities. Just before the beginning of what would have been Vince’s junior year of high school in 2017, Donovan reached out to the University of Georgia who were pioneering a program that would provide a safe environment for young meta-humans to go to school, get involved in the community, & even play sports. Vince was accepted as part of the inagural class and spent the next two years in the program. However as politics surrounding meta-humans began to heat up, Vince found himself more and more angered by the rise of anti-meta-human politicians & this anger led him to join a vigilante group in Atlanta known as the

Other: Vince enjoys going hiking and camping in the mountains of north Georgia, playing competitive online multiplayer FPS games, watching a multitude of sports, and holds a history degree from the University of Georgia.


Introduction

In this world, there are individuals born with special abilities. For most of human history this was an extremely rare occurrence and anyone hardly ever knew they even existed but over the past 200 years, with the global population exploding and through natural human evolution the number of these individuals has increased. They are called many names in many languages depending on one’s perception of their abilities; prodigies, demons, freaks, alphas are all terms associated with these special people but the most commonly used term is meta-human (MH). There is no way to know for sure exactly how many meta-humans there are in the world and scientific estimates vary greatly placing the number anywhere between 100,000 to nearly 1 million. Tensions have been rising all around the world regarding meta-humans and meta-human rights but nowhere in the world have things become more heated than in the USA where a rise of anti-meta-human sentiments has led to the election of a well known conservative politician named Saul Christensen to President. While there is no federal legislation directly discriminating against mutants in the USA, many states, especially those in the midwest and the southeast, have been allowed to take the law into their own hands and created discriminatory laws under the guise of “protecting non-meta-human rights” despite the fact that meta-humans are overwhelmingly in the minority. While President Christensen has never explicitly described himself as anti-meta-human, it is abundantly clear he is no friend of the meta-human population in the USA and many people are under the impression that the President is simply biding his time for the right moment to pass sweeping federal anti-meta-human legislation. This is due to his veiled rhetoric, the predominant sentiments of his voter base, and his close friendship to Alexander Greene, a well known anti-meta-human leader in the corporate world. Greene has been involved with all kinds of business interests over the last twenty years, most recently forging partnerships with some of the most lucrative weapons manufacturers in the country and around the world. Some meta-humans have banded together across to form vigilante groups to fight back against the rising number of hate groups across the USA but many mutant citizens are afraid that these two powerful men are simply biding their time for the right moment to unleash hell upon the meta-humans of the world...

Synopsis

Each of us will be playing the role of members of a vigilante group of meta-humans based out of Atlanta, Georgia, but coming from all over the country. Our gorup has gotten word of a plan by a meta-human rights extremist group to attack the White House in an attempt to intimidate the President. Realizing this is just the type of incident that President Christensen is hoping for, we will begin by traveling to DC to try to stop the attack and protect the man who hates our kind. However, when upon our arrival we will discover, through mysterious means, that things are not what they seemed to be will quickly get caught up in a conspiracy to frame meta-humans that involves some of the most powerful men in the world...





Awesome! I'll go ahead and start working on the introduction post and character sheet format today.

Synopsis

A vigilante group of mutants based out of Atlanta, Georgia, but coming from all over the country, consisting of 5-8 members have gotten word of a plan by a MH extremist group to attack the White House in an attempt to intimidate the President. Realizing this is just the type of incident that President Christensen is hoping for, they travel to DC to try to stop the attack and protect the man who hates them. However, when they arrive they discover, through mysterious means, that things are not what they seemed to be and are caught up in a conspiracy to frame meta-humans that involves some of the most powerful men in the world.

Expectations

-Story: As you can probably already tell this is a story that focuses on serious issues such as racism, politics, human rights, security vs freedom, etc. so if you prefer to avoid those kinds of topics then this isn't the story for you. I want this story to be character driven by us as roleplayers but there will be a couple of major plot points delivered by me (one in the beginning and one later on).

-Powers: In this world, powers are almost exclusively limited to being physical enhancements in some nature or relating to the natural elements of the world. This means telepathy, telekinesis, time manipulation, magic, etc. are prohibited. As far as the scope of your powers I want to keep things limited to a street or city level scale so no world breakers, please.

-Posting: A minimum of one post a week is expected from everyone involved but if you cannot get a post up then please DM myself along with whoever your character might be directly interacting with so that we can plan accordingly and move the story along. If you are inactive for more than two weeks without any notice then your character will be killed off.
I'm highly interested if you're still accepting members.
Hello all,

I have been a member of the site before but due to some personal issues and my job keeping me pretty busy I wasn't able to find much time or inspiration for writing. But now I've moved to a new city and taken a new job and I feel a renewed interest in reading and writing stories. I'm looking to start up a story set in modern day that centers around a group of young adults with super powers. I know it sounds pretty generic but I need something relatively simple to get me back in the groove (also I love the X-Men). Hope to see some of you around.
Ok good posts so far everyone! Once either@SaberClass4242 or @Ursane post their pieces of our introductions and we conclude that I will do a slight time skip (about two hours) to right up to the time to leave for the field trip.
