So, I was thinking of starting a basic rp to get back into the mindset. So, I'm thinking of starting a rp with the following pretenses:
It's the year 2015, with the world recovering from a global economic crisis that was solved with the formation of a worldwide economy system codenamed "Hel Ios", or Helios, by economic geniuses from around the world. The use of this system Helios angered certain world powers, pushing the world into a state of elevated tensions, made worse with the discovery of beings posing as human beings in various countries from a sort of parallel universe called S.P.I.R.I.T.S., with strange capabilities that scientists defined as "powers." It was later found out that the creators of Hel Ios" were beings from the parallel universe, working to better the world with little nudges. With this discovery kept on a government standard need to know basis, the military in each country slowly began monitoring them and attempted to recruit them, using any method possible to get their hands on them for use for their own reasons. After awhile, a rebel group Kingfisher was born, with each member stepping in to stop any underhanded conspiracy attempt to get the spirits to join the country's military and become test subjects. Eventually, the creator of kingfisher was found and kidnapped by the United States, leaving a family of 2 children; a boy and girl; and a desperate mother struggling to accept the wish of the kidnapped man, and took over his business, a sub division of Helios. As the government experimented, they found that each spirit embodied a spectral animal form, ranging from common animals, to mystical beasts. On further analysis, they found the range of abilities were endless, but barely surpassed the laws of reality. Upon experimenting with the blood of the individual, a serum was made to grant temporary powers to the receiver of the serum, but only of that individual. Finding this out, they began to seek out spirits, collecting them to gain power for their country. The family of the Kingfisher's leader was dispersed, the wife using her publicity to keep her safe, while she had her children identities changed and scattered at an early age, having them live at secure families that would never give up their identities. At the passing of the summer solstice, their abilities began to manifest, forcing the families to explain to them the realities.
So, with that being said we have:
Government(The U.N.)- They want the Spirits to use. They want control of Hel Ios and the downfall of Kingfisher. They have agents equipped and skilled with dealing with Spirits.
Kingfisher: Devoted for the establishment of a world that tolerates. Identified by their tattoo that glows when two members initiate a call and response via whistling. Identification melody can't be duplicated with technology. The Protectors of Hel Ios. Has agents in the government, as well as random places in law enforcement.
Hel Ios: A group of Spirits who grew tired of the bullshit of mankind. By giving humanity the answers to their problems anonymously, they recognized their control of the world but do not wish to abuse it. They are revered as heroes, and the only thing keeping them from being captured and controlled by the government is the organization Kingfisher. Has ties to media empires, the only thing keeping the known current leader safe.
Some brief guidelines, for powers, keep them simple folks. Yeah, other races are superior to humans, but ingenuity goes a long way. Desperate people get crafty. Even so, this is almost on the level of war. A secret war.
Every Action has a consequence.
If normal people see you, they cause a big deal. Real life logic applies. Word gets out, and you're outed. The government/Kingfisher/Hel Ios knows who you are and things get tricky(er). Makes things harder, to do as well. But of course, things get simple.
If you want to help control some of the NPCs I plan to put together later pm me.
I will add more and more as I remember, but is anyone interested?
