Genric city has fallen, with no power able to save it. The UN is in chaos, and the Generic States of America has become a police state as President Pumpkin's powered containment protocols start extending much farther than simply cataloging them. Many powereds, hero and villain alike were drawn to Genric city, and now few powereds remain. Those that do are drawn to one another, for safety. They form alliances, for good or for ill. Few conflicts between capes will go unnoticed by the military, and rascism and stereotyping has turned both the government and the people against powereds. This bridge was burned, and now it's up to the few remaining heroes to fix it, regardless of fault.
OOC: This RP takes place after the utter destruction of Genric city, and is the direct sequel to the 1st Heroes and Villains RP. The story picks up in Cleanington, near the White House, directly after many heroes escaped.
Rules: (in no particular order)
- Due to free form rules, any rule restricting power levels is optional. However, they are there because I believe too many OP characters make for a chaotic RP full of noise where nothing gets done, so please consider this when making your character.
- Normal RPForums and Simple section rules
- No Godmodding. Try to keep your character's power fairly low, otherwise things can get out of hand quickly. Unrecommended powers include, but are not limited to Superman levels of anything, immunity to weapons, creation of matter out of thin air, or simply a lot of smaller powers in one character. Please cooperate if we say your power is too high. If you are unsure of whether a character is OP or not, feel free to ask in OOC. Again, due to being in free form there are no restrictions on power. However, for the sake of the RP please consider having a less powerful character.
- Any weakness being used to balance power must not be obscure. Someone IC must know about it, and it must not be based on anything unobtainable
- Use bold headers stating place and/or time if you are in a different place or time from the previous post, or in the first post on a page edit in the place. Time only moves forward, so posting time usually won't be necessary.
- Make your best attempts at proper grammar, syntax, and spelling. I understand some people have trouble, but unreadable posts don't help anything.
- Keep an awareness of who is in what conflict, and make sure everyone gets a chance to do something. This is because, on some occasions, players have gone on ahead with the RP leaving other PCs standing and doing 'nothing.' A general rule is to wait 24 hours for everyone to respond, though more time may be necessary for more serious events, like combat.
- At the top of your first post, post a link to a picture of a cat.
- Every character should be on a team, either the 'Hero' team or the 'Villain' team. While this does limit some moral conflict, in the last RP having no distinct rule on teaming up meant that the RP turned to chaos. Parties like the United Elemental Navy will exist outside of the teams, as they are an NPC neutral party.
- Do not go off making new storylines every time your character has nothing to do. At most, only three or four storylines should exist, with two of them closing quickly. In a typical time, only two storylines (one villain one hero) should exist.
- Every character must be from this cinematic universe. This is not to say the multiverse doesn't exist, it's just to say that things from other RPs shouldn't be brought to this one.
- OPTIONAL In your first post with a character, give their name, any aliases they have, a brief summary of their powers (1 line preferably), a fun fact, and their affiliation (hero or villain). For the most part, I will add the status, but if you would like you can put the character's status (at large, imprisoned, or, god forbid, dead). This is optional because it is merely a method to help keep track of characters, no CS is required to play in Free Form.
