((DISCLAIMER: I did not come up with this game, all credit goes to MzHyde for her brilliant work. I've edited it a bit to suite my own style better, but it remains much the same)) 2018San Francisco, California.
The object hovered over the city for the briefest of moments, just a fraction of a second. It seemed to hang in the air, to defy gravity for a split second. It was an orb of the purest, brightest blue light. After halting, it flashed, seemed to explode. It bathed much of the city in it's pale light before dropping to the ground, revealing itself to be some kind of strange crystal - though now it was devoid of any light, inner or outer. It was a simple hunk of grey rock. It's miracle had been spent. People, seemingly at random, were granted unique super powers. The riots that followed lasted days. Given incredible power, many of these people turned to crime. After all, the only thing keeping many ordinary folk from killing and stealing is fear; fear of not being able to do it, of getting caught, of being punished. With powers that defy physics and the very laws of nature, some took to a life of crime. Others attempted to become ad hoc superheroes. Yet this path is also fraught with peril; some died in their attempts at doing the right thing. Not everyone is combat trained, not everyone has the mental fortitude, the stamina, the skills, the moral compass to be a bringer of justice.
After the events, the government rounded up all those that showed signs of powers. They enrolled them into the Titan Project, a program designed to teach these individuals to sharpen their powers and to use them responsibly. It was an unmitigated disaster. The training was brutal and much like being in the military. Only two entrants from the first batch of candidates actually ended up making the grade. Jamie Matell, a young woman gifted with unrestricted control over technology within her field of vision, as well as the uncanny ability to create technology belonging in the far future, She become known as Fixer. The other passing candidate was Adam Hastings, a young man cursed with the power to inflict permanent damage and destruction on everything he chooses. This coupled with his secondary power which turned him into a incubus, granting him the powers of one of these made most in the original program, save Jamie, fear him immensely.
And thus America had it's first two Titans. Real superheroes.
But The Titan Program needed work. It needed a less brutal training regimen to help accommodate the ordinary men and women that were given these gifts. It needed better ways to weed out poor candidates than written tests and obstacle courses. It needed... funding. California, the mecca of creativity that it is, came up with an idea. A reality show. America could watch these new supers training, living together, competing against one another for these coveted spots on the Titans. Three open slots for America's first super team. Ten 'contestants' in this new batch and only one winner gets a coveted spot. Who would win? Who would lose? Who would sleep together? Who would betray who? America would soon find out, all on live TV. What I'm Looking For
A small group of players to play this new batch of contestants on this 'Super Hero Reality Show'. All the heroes will be living together and, much like any other reality TV show, there will be periodic contests. Winners get immunity from being voted out. At the end of several events, the overall winner will be decided. We do not have to have ten players - we can NPC some, or just cut down the number of contestants.

- You're on the honor system here! Don't cherry pick! Go with whatever you get and be creative with it. I'm just looking for creative writers that will be able to dedicate some time to this RP. You must be able to post frequently. If you think you have too much on your plate as is, please do not apply. That said, here's a template and example profile for Adam Hastings, who in this version of the game, will work as a mentor for the new candidates, as well as serve as my character.TITAN PROJECT CANDIDATE - CLASSIFIED FILE
NAME: Adam Hastings
HEIGHT: 6' 9"
BODY TYPE: Athletic
ALPHA POWER: Irreversible Destruction (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Irreversible_Destruction
) - Adam is capable of inflicting damage upon anything and everyone that for some unknown reason can neither be healed nor repaired. This power extends to Adam himself as well, so should he inflict damage upon himself, he would be unable to heal it.
BETA POWER: Incubus Physiology (http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Incubus_Physiology
) - Adam has been transformed into an Incubus, a demon with dream related powers, not all of which are under Adam's control. He loathes this, looking like a demon day in and day out.
BIO: Adam was born to Eustace and Mirian Hastings in Wyoming. As a child Adam was always the quiet kid, easily overlooked, never picked first for anything, never questioned by the teachers. To young Adam it seemed like he was invisible to those around him, something that, in his teen years, caused him to get severe depressions. As Adam grew older he started becoming more and more independent, not relying on others for anything. At the age of 16 his father died, leaving Adam and his mother with a house they were unable to pay for. Adam and Mirian then moved in with Mirian's sister Margaret and her family in San Francisco. Adam started high school, and for the first time in his life, Adam was noticed. Adam had built quite a strong frame living out in the middle of nowhere, something the girls at school seemed to like. Soon Adam was surrounded by friends, friends that stuck with him even as they all started college
Adam was out shopping with his girlfriend at the time he got his powers. He let out sharp cries of pain as his body began to change. His girlfriend was terrified by the creature that now stood before her. Adam had been handsome, and while the creature still was, the black horns protruding from his forehead, along with the wings and tail spawned by the change made Adam look like a demon. It was only in his rage that he found his primary power, when he hit a wall the wall crumbled, a strange aura surrounding where he had hit.
PERSONALITY: Adam is a laid back, independent soul who likes to be alone, but appreciates good company as well. He is not quick to anger, but when angered, it is best to leave him to fume by himself, lest you want permanent damage to your body. Adam values friendship higher than anything else, as he didn't have many friends growing up in Wyoming, and didn't feel liked till his first year in San Franciscoseekeroftruth22 is CO-GM'ing this with me
