I've been looking to try a storyline for quite a bit of time, but finding a partner has been relatively difficult. Nevertheless, I thought I'd put this here to see if anyone would be interested in giving it a try:
The setting is Earth in the year 2013. The world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012, as Mayan culture had suggested, but what wasn't expected was that the world would continue on, just under a reborn cycle of creation. On December 21, a handful of individuals across the globe spontaneously developed powers far beyond those of mortal men. Those randomly chosen by the fates began to discover their new abilities in the following weeks, resulting in a New Year's explosion as a man with nuclear power loses all control in Paris and explodes, decimating the city and startling its inhabitants.
The United Nations in turmoil and the threat of open war in Europe causes a group of three charismatic individuals to speak up, revealing that they spontaneously received "gifts," causing them to become the world's first recognized superhuman individuals. After laborious talks, the three individuals, known to the world collectively as the Voice, manage to subvert calls for war instead for a call to action identifying New Humans (the name for those individuals with the "gift") in an effort to neutralize those that could potentially destroy the world. Thus, the Voice begins a search to find new members to help enforce new laws governing the movement and action of New Humans.
In this RP, characters would begin in a large city with the separate intention of fleeing a new police task force that has banded together to register all New Humans. They would eventually meet up together and their journeys would take them to the Voice. Because this is more character-driven, I hope to make this into a long-term RP. I'm looking for ~5 characters to start, and any others will have an opportunity to come in as the story goes. There are limitations to characters' powers, but we can talk about that once I see that enough are interested.
If you have questions, feel free to PM me! I hope there's some interest, and I look forward to hearing from you!
