Hero - Skillet

I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losin' my faith today
(Fallin' off the edge today)

I am just a man
Not superhuman
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn
(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero (save me now)
I need a hero to save my life
A hero'll save me (just in time)

I've gotta fight today
To live another day
Speakin' my mind today
(My voice will be heard today)

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
(I'm not superhuman)
My voice will be heard today

It's just another war
Just another family torn
(My voice will be heard today)
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

I need a hero to save my life
I need a hero just in time
Save me just in time
Save me just in time

Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
We're in the fight of our lives
And we're not ready to die

Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero (I've got a hero)
Livin' in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind
And if it kills me tonight
I will be ready to die

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time

I need a hero
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?

I need a hero
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I need a hero
I need a hero

A hero's gonna save me just in time...


Welcome, one and all! This is a marvelous roleplay hosted by yours truly, Gorgon! And the crowd goes wild wondering how to sign up!
*crickets*
Or maybe not. Anyway, this is a roleplay being held between myself and the ever-charming Shadow Dragon! Applause for our lovely friend!
And I mean it no crickets this time.
But before you click away from the RP, dismissing it as another cool 1x1 you can't get in on, let it be known that you too can participate!
"But Gorgon, if it's a 1x1, how can we be in it?"
Good question, Continuity Voice! What you can do is fill out the forms below to the best of your ability and post them so Shadow Dragon and I can ab/use them ourselves! A novel concept, amirite?
*more crickets*
I need to call pest control... Now then! How does it work, you're wondering? Well read on to find out!

.:MMM DAT PLOT:.
Consider our world just as it is; history, leaders, events... It's all the same.
Now throw in superheroes.
Awww yeaaah.
As is word of God, New York is a hotbed of super activity. It is home to some of the strongest heroes and vilest villains the earth has ever had the dis/pleasure of knowing. Heroes great and small (Heatwave! The Major! The White Raj!) protect a defenseless population and in turn are adored and idolized. On the opposite side of the spectrum are villains, (Doctor Freud! Death Metal! Mucking Faster!) who are hated and feared. Villains abhor heroes and all they stand for, feeling wronged by society. Heroes are vastly outnumbered, but manage to stave off the criminal doings efficiently. Things seemed balanced in their favor.
Until they began to disappear.
No one was quite sure who was doing it, why, or how. Heroes, running dry on leads and low on manpower, drew the conclusion that some villain was behind it. Villains were quick to blame heroes, for even the evildoers were being abducted; they were sure those pompous do-gooders were behind it- who else would be able to so stealthily kidnap the most dangerous of super criminals?
As time passes, more and more begin to disappear with nary a hint as to who or what could be up to the act. Heroes are knitting close together, villains are becoming paranoid. Friendships and partnerships have been torn apart, and there's no telling when it will stop. And the civilians, they're just thinking "Hey, so-and-so's been out of action for a while."
Now, two new heroes and villains are making a break into the business, being taken under the wing of veterans, all hoping there is some way to end this and save the missing.
If you are wishing to participate in this roleplay, you will play a seasoned hero or villain who may or may not have been abducted. Gorgon has a plan, don't you worry...

.:AYE YO USE THESE TO SIGN UP:.
Please fill these forms in to the best of your abilities. The bigger they are, the more likely we are to use them.


Username:
Name: (Bonus points if it alliterates, like Bruce Banner, Peter Parker, or Reed Richard)
Alias: (Hero/Villain Codename, such as the Hulk, Spider-man, or Mr. Fantastic)
Gender: (Whatever floats yer boat. Sexuality goes here too I guess)
Age: (Can range from mid-teens to whenever. Geriatric supers? Totally okay.)
Alignment: (Hero? Villain? Neutral? Depends?)
Abducted? (Yes or no. I'd suggest yes; I don't want the scales to be too tipped in the favor of the protagonists.)
Appearance: (Pictures are greatly appreciated, and a super suit is mandatory, whether it's trench coat or spandex. The better the description, the better it'll be in the RP.)
Personality: (Please, please, please, for the love of Stan Lee fill this out as much as possible. What is their disposition? Do they enjoy working with other heroes/villains? When they fight, do they think things through or rush in headfirst? Details, people.)
Biography: (A bare outline is totally acceptable. Your character isn't going to launch into a lengthy speech about this- unless they actually do that as part of their personality. Ex: "I don't cry. I lost my tear ducts in the war." The only thing that's mandatory is how they gained/discovered their powers. If you want to mention other supers that have no forms and are just for continuity's sake, please do, but make sure if you use another User's super you have express permission from them. Since I realize it's not easy to BS where a super suit came from, feel free to use the NPC called Vogue, who's basically the Edna Mode of this universe. Or just don't mention it. happy.gif )
Powers: (No OP characters, but please do note that I consider super strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability a given. Most heroes have them and they are considered quite plain. In fact, I'll consider your character weaker if they don't have them. If we think these are overboard, however, you'll be asked to cut them. Please do not submit multiple characters with the same powers.)
Relationships: (Do they have a family? A partner in crime/heroics? What do they think of the other heroes/villains? Make sure you have express permission from the respective character's owner before putting something big like a lover or nemesis in for them. Something plain like "[Insert Hero's name] is a big fan of the Jade Dragon." is completely fine though.)
Other: (Anything else?)

If there is anything you don't understand, please do not hesitate to ask Shadow Dragon, who is in charge until I return from Band Camp on August 16th. Since I am unaware of the camp's wifi situation, assume I am out of commission until then. I will have my iPod though, and God knows I'll take any distraction to slack on my music… Anyway!

.:ROLEPLAYERS DON'T KNOW 'BOUT MY RULES:.
-Shady and I call the shots here. If one of us says it, it's law. We say "jump", you say "But I'm on the computer, how will you know if I did it or not?" We reply "Oh, we'll know. Trust us." And then you do it just to be safe.
-All GTS+ rules apply, yo
-Gary Stus and Mary Sues will be fed to Fin Fang Foom. Look him up.
-This is a private RP where you send in characters for Shadow Dragon and I to ab/use. If you post in the topic, you will be ignored and reprimanded.
-Be nice to everyone. Hating is lame.
-Feel free to chat about the plot and ideas around here. Don't be shy. You don't even have to send in a character; just pop in and say hi if you want.
-That being said, don't spam.
-Things around here will be PG-16, which means descriptive violence and possible romance that really won't go that far before we put a cap on it. It's not Saw, and it's not porn. It's superheroes and stuff like that.
-My favorite way to sign off on letters and roleplays is the same way the patron saint of superheroes, Stan Lee, does: "Excelsior!" Stick that somewhere in your form to have it accepted.
-I don't really care for a character limit; since you won't be posting, feel free to submit as many as you like. But again, don't submit too many heroes/villains with the same powers. Ex: Try not to submit any more heroes/villains with metal manipulation, since we already have one with that power.

Psst! Still confused on how the send-your-own-character thing works? Read me! (click to show)


.:THESE GUYS CAN HANG (ACCEPTED CHARACTERS):.
Shadow Dragon and I have been incredibly lazy with our forms because it's our roleplay and everything will be elaborated on in the first post and those following, as this RP is largely based on character dynamics. Do as we say, not as we do. Once I return from Band Camp this will be updated with all accepted forms. Please note that I must also be in agreement for the acceptance of a character; likewise with Shadow Dragon.

Dawn Wilson AKA Prima Donna (Gorgon) (click to show)

Chiang Xao-Ming AKA The Jade Dragon (Gorgon) (click to show)

Maxwell Merritt AKA Heatwave (Gorgon) (click to show)


Brandon Cliffe AKA Riftwalker (click to show)


Nicolas Russet, AKA Death Metal (click to show)


... Now, up, up, and away, into a fabulous roleplay! Excelsior!

Next post reserved for forms and the like, if the need should arise.

Let it be known I will have two more villains upon return from camp, and that is when I will add the Jade Dragon's costume appearance. Because honestly it's giving me a hard time.

Team Denali 7-2



Username: W Crash (Water1997)
Name: Sophie Johnson
Alias: Chrono
Gender: Female
Age: 15
Alignment: Neutral at the moment
Abducted?: No (I can change it if the great RP starter wishes though)
Appearance: Picture:
Her super suit is a blue windbreaker with green stripes on the front. It is slightly heavier than a normal windbreaker. It also has an orange hourglass emblem on the back, with the number 1307 under it in the same color. It has rolled up cuffs that are the same color as the stripes.
Personality: Chrono’s pretty mysterious. She prefers working alone, but will work as a team if forced to. Usually she works in the shadows, but has taken center stage once in a while. She has worked for heroes in the past, but she kind of faded away. She doesn’t talk much, and she doesn’t react visibly unless surprised. She doesn’t like talking about her past. She likes confusing people (Which is why she’s Chrono and her emblem is an hourglass though her powers have nothing to do with time)
Biography: She discovered her powers when she was about to be killed but somehow avoided the attack. (Catlike reflexes).
Powers: Animal Mimicry (able to temporarily take on the abilities of an animal without transforming into it.) Examples: she gains a cat's reflexes, or a hippo's ability to hold its breath for a long time. Or a cheetah's running speed. The more extreme the power, the harder it is to keep it going.
Relationships: None. There are a few heroes she has worked with in the past, but she prefers to be alone.
Other: Nothing I can think of. Oh wait! Excelsior!

Thanks for submitting a character, W Crash. I'm glad someone likes the idea at least a little :0
We shall treat her well… maybe.

Ah, and please do realize you can edit her whenever you like! At least until Saturday. I would suggest adding at least a few examples on her powers, because I kinda don't understand. :/

This looks fantastic and full of tropes that I can use. However, I'm currently on a road trip, and will be until Thursday. So, while I wish to write one, I won't be able to until Thursday. Currently posting via my phone. But I thought you'd like to know there is interest.

Username: Xires
Name: ???
Alias: Putrid Nox
Gender: Male
Age: 31
Alignment: Villain
Abducted? Potentially... To be explained later.
Appearance:

Personality: Cruel, Violent, and unnecessarily complex, Putrid Nox enjoys bringing out the worst in people. Watching other people writhe an scream are his favorite pastimes, and he's rather partial to slow torture. He strikes selectively to destroy what people hold dear and close to their hearts. His ultimate goal is to destroy the idea of hope, and send the world plunging into outright chaos. He's been known to target anyONE an anyTHING, his choices seem sporadic and at whim. He despises other villains, only ever choosing to work with them if it reaches his penultimate goal. more often then not, he'll betray them at the end. As it is, he'll work with ANYONE if it means reaching this goal. When he isnt enacting a crime, he tends to disappear for days, weeks, even potentially months at a time. This is why no one is sure if he's ACTUALLY been kidnapped, he could merely be waiting for a moment to strike.
Biography: Piecing together Putrid Nox's backstory is hard, as he has always kept it a secret. Very few actually have seen him without the mask, and those who have all claim he is horribly disfigured. Some think he was a scientist, caught up in a terrible lab accident, while others speculate that he was an innocent bystander, attacked by some otherworldy force. Either way, his abilities are renouned for their destructive capabilities.
Powers: Lacking super strength, speed, and stamina, the only thing that puts him out of the ordinary from a regular person is his Vile cloud. A cloud of black, noxious fumes emanate from his boy, forming a protective barrier around him. It is so thick it affects super vision, rendering him invisible within this cloud, and so potent it can errode a bullet fired into the midst of it completely. Putrid Nox himself seems to be immune to these effects.
Relationships: Unknown.

Excelsior

wow people where'd you all come from

Xion, it's nice to have you on board! I can't wait to see what you can come up with, since you always have such nice ideas.
Xires, thank you for our first submitted villain since, wow, Putrid Nox is pretty damn cool. I'd accept him, so we'll await for Gorgon now.
also W Crash my rapper buddy my friend I like your profile too! Its neat how she's just confusing everyone with the suit/name verses her powers. Although I'm confused too - if Sophie is unable to transform into an animal, does that mean all she can do with her powers is copy their movements and habits (like the cat reflex)?? Other than that she's perfectly fine though.

-- also I'll put my profiles the bottom of this post since I'm a butt and don't wake up till noon ahhhh

Two things. 1) I'm glad to see D&D alignments. Means I can write down one and you'll know what I mean. 2) Can I get a simple list of all powers people have? Just so I don't accidentally double up.

Mm, I should probably add some of my drawings to this. Make it pretty again.

You're welcome! And thank you for clearing it all up. Her power's real creative ahhh
...pity I can't actually edit anything when it comes to making lists of accepted profiles. Ugh.

Xion)
I've recently gotten into using D&D alignments, but I'll hopefully understand it well enough haha
and here's a really quick list I made. It's a little iffy with certain powers (seriously what is Jade Dragon's power even supposed to be called??) but it should work!

I was practically raised on D&D, so I am apt to use those when describing alignments.

No illusion, fantastic. <3

as for where i came from, i came from real life. reality is a lovely place, but i wouldn't want to live there

Oh, excuse my bad language.

Anyway, can I make a 'Villain turned Hero' bio? PLEEEAAAASSSEEE?????

Always alone....

intoxicated by victory...


Thus, this life has no meaning...
This body...surely was...

Yay! People getting the powers they want. I suppose it would be nicer if I made a slightly more detailed list of everyone's powers. If anyone wants it at anytime just ask ahh

Huntress
, I'm perfectly fine with non-human characters. Not all comic book heroes are human anyway, haha. Anyway I simply adore Roxxy! Shes really cool and wow. Since you've got everything, she's accepted as far as I'm concerned

Aura! Put a dollar in the swear jar. Bad Aura bad.
And "Villain turned Hero" bios are completely fine! Do whatever you wish C:
