Author Topic: A Modern Day Original Superhero RP (Greek elements, Freeform, Interest Check)  (Read 441 times)

This is something that has been swimming around in my mind for some time now. A modern day superhero RP with some Greek elements. Setting and locations will be based off real life and the preferred starting location is Kansas City, KS. This is negotiable, but the main reason I pick it is because my character is from there, I'm from there and being familiar with the city I can provide a bit more scenery without having to research anything as I would otherwise have to do if it was a place I never been to.

The game is open to heroes, villains, regular civilians, secret government agents, anything involving Greek Mythology and of course anything else your imagination can think of. Heroes/villains can have superpowers or do the Batman/Iron Man thing of using technology, gadgets and learned skills for their crime fighting/evildoing. Average Joes in the game can become a hero/villain at a later date. Also in the starting area you don't have to be from Kansas City. Your character can be there for any reason you can think of. The game will expand to more areas as it progresses. You can play as many character as you feel you can handle.

The basic premise is that the Greek gods (thought to be myths) are actually real and traces of their existence remain in the world through ruins, relics and descendents from all that crossbreeding. This will be the primary source of how heroes/villains get their powers, but they can also get them from other means like genetic engineering. For example, my girl is going to be a descendent of Gaia and her powers will reflect that, but she won't be aware of this in the early going.

Sexual activity will be allowed (just lump it in with Greek elements :P) but not the driving force of the story. So if it happens, it happens. All genders and sexualities are allowed.

Right now this is just an interest check. Depending on how many people I get, and what kind of people I get, we'll iron out the finer details then. Just note I don't like to dictate things that much. The starting area and my character's plot is just a jumping off point and from there we can just go with the flow. So if you're interested, have additional ideas and/or well verse in Greek Mythology and how to better implement it, then don't be shy to reply here. You can also PM me if you'd prefer. My inbox is always open.

Can't really see the connection though, this is more like Scion, no?

Possibly interested. I like superhero fiction stuff. Though I find it usually helps to have the players on one side and the mod or mods on the other.

Is it just the Greek gods who have left traces and crossbreeds behind? Or are there other pantheons who have left evidence of their existence behind? And since Ramael has mentioned Scion I have to admit I'm a fan of the Norse gods. So.. any by-blows of Thor or Vidar wandering around?

Eh?

If people want Norse or other gods we can add them. I just kept it limited to Greek gods to keep it simple.

I find things generally don't devolve into a horrorshow if the players are on only one side, with fully mod controlled NPC's for the bad guys. Otherwise there can be a lot of... Interesting times.

Hey all definetely got some interest here on my part. Im a huge Mythology buff and would love to see where this is headed. Were you wanting to keep it very superhero with mythos twist or where you looking for something more like the Percy Jackson books? Just curious, doesnt matter to me either way.

PS American Gods is awesome and if you have the time a must read.

Offline ToriJTopic starter

Superhero with mytho twist. I'm not all that familiar with Percy Jackson anyway.
