So, I rarely make these threads. I been having a hankering for this plot for a while. I want to test the waters with it.
Just a few simple rules of rping with me.
1) I love details.
2) Contribute to the progression of the plot, hard to write a roleplay by myself.
3) Forum rp only right now.
Themes: Sci-Fi, Powers, romance, mystery, police, etc.
In an alternate timeline a solar flare in the early 1900s cause waves of radiation to hit the earth. A percent of the population mutated and developed powers (I will go into the details on powers later if you like). The equality movement in world was no longer about skin color or heritage, it became abut whether these people with power were human or not. Yet their population grew slowly, even if they were a minority. WW2 came along with a different outcome. The second great war saw the deployment of trained military specialists with these powers. It ended quickly with small groups of US power soldiers infiltrating and destroying Berlin along with the chain of command. In the year 2000 everything changed when a radical group which opposed the government and its treatment of power people. The government had power people registered and made use of them - often forcefully recruiting them into service. Their clash came to a head at New York where the group overtook a prototype nuclear plant (nuclear development was delayed due to the war being different). Government forces and radical fighting with powers resulted in meltdown which would of been worse if not for one man. Code name Gemini, the specialist was considered the most powerful and his identity a top secret. He was too powerful for the government to control so they gave a long leash. He stopped the majority of the energy, but half the city was still destroyed. You were a child then. Your parents and home wiped out in the explosion - Gemini, in his black and green suit, lifted the rubble off of you and carried you to nearest aid site. A newly formed organization of the government was formed to deal with crimes involving powers. You saw that as your calling, to prevent tragedies like your own from happening and to live up to your hero. You are rookie, fresh out of the academy, they place you with a veteran specialist. He seem burned out and a little cynical. Yet there is something familiar about him to you.
