This rpg is a mixture between Smallville and the OC. Were teenagers who go to school in a small town by the coast and one day some of us are given superpowers. How will we deal with the new powers that we find ourselves gifted with. For good, or evil. In this you dont play as your vine character, just an 18 year old (or there abouts) high school student in a small west coast town. We are given powers by a shower of meteors from another galaxy and from that point on we make our own stories.

Yeah so thats the basic idea. The main thread will be up in a few hours.

  • Player ... Name ... Power(s) ... Brief Description

  • Andferne ... Anthony ... Superspeed ... Fighter

  • Benjamin/Aztek ... Benjamin Morgan Gontier ... Wings and healing tears ... Emo, father of a four-year-old girl

  • ChrisAngel ... Daniel Anders ... Omni-linguism ... Computer "nerd"

  • Gambler ... Bobby Lafayette ... Superhuman speed and reflexes ... Charming, popular kid

  • Gloom ... Madison McAllister ... Illusions ... Diva, friend with pixelized/Disco

  • J1NX ... Felix Graves ... Power mimicry ... 14-year-old lonely senior

  • Kaneda ... Jason Kaneda ... "Stylish" gene, able to do everything "cool" within human limits ... Über-smart, spoiled baseball jock

  • King Saturn ... Jason Avery ... Telekinesis ... Skateboarder

  • Lady Readhead ... Cassie ... [Unknown power] ... Party crasher, smoker, troublemaker

  • LexiCat ... Erin O'Shea ... Teleportation ... Friendly cheerleader

  • Midnight Lantern ... Trent Smith ... Intangibility, invisibility ... Kind of preppy but more of a nerd, Spartan 177/Jay's stepbrother

  • Mr. Wilson ... Micah Hall ... [Unknown power] ... Soccer player, church active

  • pixelized ... Disco Lights ... Diamond creation ... Good-looking popular diva, friend with Gloom/Madison

  • Ripcord ... James Carter ... [Unknown power] ... Smartest kid at school, class clown

  • Shaper ... Johnathon Parker ... Animal shapeshifting ... Average person; athletic

  • Slinger ... Kelly MacArthur ... Telepathy ... Dumb jock

  • Spartan 177 ... Jay Rockett ... Energy projection ... Mix of Peter Parker and Jaime Reyes; Soccer player; Midnight Lantern/Trent's stepbrother

  • Switch ... Ryan Winters ... [Unknown power] ... Relatively popular dude, friend with Gloom/Madison

  • TheCleverGuy ... Izaac Masterson ... Darkness manipulation ... Perfectionist, smart person, artist, slightly emo

"Maybe we recieve abilities from space or something. Like some type of fusion or living organism that works like a symbiote."

I was thinking that we could have a meteor shower that would grant us our powers. That way it would explain why so many people in the same place suddenly became superhuman. How about one of the meteors cracked open and the symbiote came out?

Is this supposed to be canon (but just using other characters)? Because then I have an idea on from where the meteor shower come from. :)

No, I got an idea that will get loads of character interaction going that makes that impossible.

@Rip, glad to have you.

I dunno. The way I saw it this would take place in a world where people didn't have superpowers, to make the events that occur seem even more sensational and prevent specialist technology from neutralizing peoples powers. But hit me with your idea over pms

You make that up, not me. The story is made out of what everyone does and how people react to things that occur.

I think I have an idea for a character named James Carter. He's a senior who has no social life then when the meteor strom hits the school, he becomes popular because he is one of the only kids who don't have a power or symbiote, but he really has both.

It would be interesting if someone made an Emo character lol. I think my person will just be the not so popular guy, but is happy with his close friends. Maybe a bit of Peter Parker and Jaime Reyes in the mix.

While I'm not entirely sure I can participate, I'd like to be emo. I think that would suit me (according to a quiz, I'm 40% emo lol) :D

Just a note as well. No reality changing powers and no random powers. You cant do stuff like shoot laser out of your eyes and have a really good healing factor. Your powers should have a theme to them.
