Note: Every plot is up for discussion. If you read one and don't like quite how I have it, but get ideas of your own for how to take it, feel free to tell me your thoughts. ^_^Bullets of Silver
--Based on Picture Thirteen
. The excerpt comes from the description by the artist on the picture's DeviantArt page. "I ask but three things be granted to me in these times of horror and death wrought by manís inhumanity to man, called war.
First, I ask that I may be silent and unseen in my quest to perform my duty with perseverance, loyalty, honor and courage.
Second, may I shoot straight and kill my much respected enemy quickly, with one shot so that he does not suffer and writhe in pain.
Lastly dear Lord, I ask that you grant me the ability to be cunning and smart in my quest to be victorious over my enemy and adapt to whatever he may put before me by using the assets you have placed on this earth and the abilities instilled within me."
It had been 10 months since the enemy attempted to overrun the city with occult means, days after days, night after night, the city defenders fought for every inch.
The only means of slaying the foul beasts from beyond is by a single silver bullet through their heart or their head, but silver were rare, so only the best marksmen were given the honour of delivering the killing shot while his comrades play the unfortunately role of distraction.
As skilled as these snipers, the silver bullets were never enough to go around.
Okay, so, that basically sets the scene. The girl in the picture does not have to be a character if you don't like her. The basic idea that I have is that in a post-apocalypse world, be it through scientific or mystical means or alien invasion means, the world is populated by all kinds of monstrosities that seem to have the sole purpose of eradicating the human race. Survivors of the initial warfare are clustered in whatever safe havens they can find, their protection mainly secured by these sharpshooters. The plot itself is flexible, I have some ideas ranging from dealing between two rival shooters to perhaps a final, last-ditch effort to build a rebellion/resistance of some kind and win humaity it's place back as masters of the planet.Another Way To Die
Okay, heavily inspired by "Another Way To Die" by Disturbed. Watch the music video on YouTube here, it helps set the scene for the RP: Disturbed - "Another Way To Die" Official Music Video
Alright, basically, it is a post-apocalypse RP. Sometime in the near furture, let's say 2012 for the fun of it, human kind's treatment of the Earth catches up with them. A series of perfect storms just sweep the globe. Massive hurricanes year round, tornados, earthquakes, volcano eruptions...Everything just flat out goes to hell. When things settle the fact of Earth has changed, with many cities now destroyed, countries and governments universally crippled.
The rich and greedy of the world quickly take hold, forming a massive global order behind a private military. A special safe haven is set up specifically for them and the other elitists of the world. A supercity, it is the last real hospitable place of the Earth, at least in terms of what the majority of human kind has become used to.
Many flocked to this city to seek shelter, only to be herded like cattle into special refugee camps where they were told they had to wait as accommodations were made for them. These camps were ruled by the corrupt military, and very barely maintained. Homes were what the people put together themselves using scraps of the old world. Clothing was little more than rags, the lucky had shoes (the luckier managed to keep them), and water was a very closely guarded necessity, only a few people allowed to drink each day. Many people died, many more were hauled off as slave labor, or in the case of women, slaves for the elites in the city or bedwarmers for the soldiers.
Entertainment is whatever they can do to entertain themselves. Law itself is barely upheld in camp, and many have resorted back to basic primal urges, forming arenas and fight clubs...
Not everyone accepted this though. Bandits and raiders thrived in the lawlessness of the world, and other cities were built. Some were made by ordinary people trying to just get by (think of Megaton in Fallout 3, or the various stations in Metro 2033). Others were camps used by the bandits and raiders. The common person had little to look forward though, in terms of wandering the wastes that now composed of the world, or taking their chances in the refugee camps.
There is rumor of a group dedicated to bringing down the ruling Overlords, to remove the evil and corrupt from their place of power and try to set the world back on track. Many believe these are just hopeful stories, though. Some swear they are true. Who knows?Who Guards the Guardians?
At first, it was just a strange occurrence. Minor villains around were disappearing. No one seemed to care, especially not most of the heroes and heroines in the world, as without their minor annoyances around they could focus on the increasing activity of the major supervillains. But, soon enough, even the supervillains start to disappear. And with them, their heroes. One by one the heroes are vanishing, and no one knows why or where to...
I have a few ideas for this one. The most cliches is that the villains and heroes are being abducted, taken to a different plane of existence or a different world, and put into some kind of gladiatorial arena for the amusement of, well, whoever is doing the abductions. It can be talked out.
Second, there is a secret world government organization (let's say like a dark, secret wing of the United Nations, for example) that has been created to end the threat the world faces from the metahumans. After all, the battles between the so-called heroes and villains often leaves the cities in ruin, costing millions of dollars in repairs. Wouldn't the world be a safer place without them?Love Thy Enemy
Another superhero one. This one is a bit more simple, though, as I would just like to explore a hero and a villain becoming a couple of some kind. I have a few different thoughts for this one too:
1.) The hero and villain both have alter-egos so they can interact with normal society. What if, without knowing the other's identity, they meet and start dating, becoming a serious couple while trying to keep their secrets from the other? What will happen when they learn that they are each other's hated nemesis? Will they even care anymore? Cliched, I know.
2.) A villain, after months or years of planning, has finally enacted a plan to capture their nemesis. And, perhaps surprisingly, it works. They villain takes the captured hero back to their lair, revealing the ultimate motives. They want the hero as they own, their lover, and it will happen, whether the hero is willing or not.
3.) For any Arkham Asylum fans, this idea I have been biting at for a while. What if Dr. Penelope Young isn't killed by the Joker's trap, but instead is put in a state of fake death, to trick Batman? When he leaves she is ultimately recovered by another villain...For whatever reasons can be discussed. Perhaps a villain seeks revenge for the experiments done to them related to the Titan project, or maybe they had simply worked out a deal with Joker, helping him get her research, as long as they could have the doctor for themselves?Wonders of Technology
After years of research, experimentation, and hard word, a pair of scientists have finally created a machine that can be used to transform the human body. Plug into the computer what you want, step into the machine, and let technology do it's work. It was intended by one scientist to be used as a means to help those less fortunate than most, to help remove deformities, to help those who had suffered amputation or disfiguring injuries from maybe war or a horrible accident.
The other scientist, however, has much more greedy goals in mind. They use the machine to become basically the embodiment of all things sexual, beautiful, and attractive. They use the machine to increase their intelligence to beyond genius levels, and manipulating events, stabs their partner in the back and keeps the machine as something to sell its use off to the highest bidder. Their partner is kept out of the spotlight, and is just used to keep the machine working, given no credit. While alone with the machine, though, they get the idea...Well, their life has already been ruined, why not use it? Turn the tables on their partner?
This idea was inspired by a story I read on SoFurry.com that I can link anyone who is interested to. And for those of you who don't like furries or anthros, that only comes in at the end of the story, everything in the beginning and middle is human. I'm also up for discussion on the exact plot or how things turn out.Transformation
No specific plot ideas for this one, I'm just putting out there that anyone interested in a Transformation RP, feel free to PM me. I'm up for just about any kind there is, and I would love to talk out plots and ideas!A Place for My Head
This was an RP I came up with a while ago on a different site. But, the person I was doing the RP with vanished after a few posts (that happens unnervingly a lot for some reason). Anyway, I'd like to see if anyone will take any interest to it on here, so I can see where it might have gone.
I'm looking for a literate partner for this. They'd be playing the new doctor for a patient in a mental asylum. The doctor would be new to the asylum, perhaps even fresh out of medical school. But the current staff at the asylum are corrupt. They exploit the mentally ill, and the man in change himself runs experiments on some of the patients who no one cares about...How your character reacts to that and to my character are all up to whoever wants to do this.
Note, this started as a F/F RP, and that's how I would really like to have it again, but if no one up for that shows interest I'll live with an M/F RP. My old intro for it will be posted in the RP Starters section, for any interested.
