THIS IS THE OOC, WE HAVE NOT STARTED THE RP YET..
The year is 2042. War and nuclear fallout has eliminated most of the earths population. You are all that is left.
The great war was a loss, for everyone. The world is unstable, and nuclear fallout has made it unsafe to go outside. You live in an underground facility called Bunker 29 with a small group of people. All you know of the outside world is what the weekly holos from the U.S. government say, which isnt that much. Everyone in the facility with you is pretty much the same. Normal. Until one day, things change, and you realise that Bunker 29 isnt protecting you from the waste like it should. At first people get sick, but then you begin to notice strange powers in other people.
App: Name- Age- Appearance- Power- (Keep it within reason, please.) Bio- (Life story, how you ended up in the bunker) Personality-(Obviousness.) Weapon- (You can choose a melee weapon to use instead of your powers. NO guns.) Skillset- (Things your good at, must have one negative for every positive. Scroll down for more detail) Suggestions- Other-
RULES: 1- No spam 2- No power/metagaming 3- You are not immortal, please act as such. 4- In the "other" slot in your app please say hello. :3 5- HAVE FUN!
How do skillsets work? With your skillset, you get to chose a positive perk (fast, lightweight, hand-to-hand expert, etc.) to apply to your character. Please note that you must match each positive skillset with a negative (slow, clumsy, scaredy-cat, etc.) You have a maximum of 2 skills, and I'll let you choose your own, but if i decide that it is necessary ill either take these off or have you choose off a list.
How do Random Events work?
In random events, you are given a chance to increase the intensity of your powers. These will happen frequent enough, but only people who participate get their powers upgraded. No single person can stop these, they require teamwork. This is the main way that your powers will increase, and may only be started by me.
Character: Ryan Palmer
Power: Time Manipulation (10 seconds)
Character: Leo Verdum
Power: Telepathy (5 yards)
Name- Leo Verdum Age- 20 Appearance- Power- Telekinesis-The ability to move objects that don't way any more than one hundred pounds with his mind.(has range of 25 feet) Bio- Leo's father had moved him into the bunker when he was 14. His father was a hard working mechanic/handyman and had made enough money to pay for both Leo's and his own space in the bunker. Leo acted like any other kid inside the boring bunker and was always messing around with things. His father had gotten sick a month ago and died from a unknown cause. That was the first time Leo noticed his powers. He had gotten angry at everything in his room that reminded him of his dead and wanted to throw it across the room when he caused a vase to move and slam against the wall. Weapon- A metal baseball bat. Skillset- Leo has an unusually high endurance and can take a beating but the down side is that he can't really move as quick as he could after getting hit several times. Leo has amazing hand eye cordination and tends to hit anything he thinks he can, downside is that he isn't all that great with being careful. Suggestions-MOOOOOO Other-Sup dude. Hello
((You are accepted, but clarify your power. I suppose by telepathy you mean telekinesis (moving objects with mind). Also, can I ask you to nerf your powers a bit, since this is the beginning? Can you start out at 5 yards? (25 feet) I'm doing this so that you don't instantly annihilate newbies. You'll get a chance to increase them later in a "random event"))
Appearance- 6'1", Brown hair, lean built. Looks a bit like... I've always wanted to do this. :3
Power- Ryan can manipulate time slightly, allowing him to speed up or slow down time. He can also "blink" from place to place by slowing time extremely for a brief moment and moving in that time. His power currently only allows him to manipulate time for the equivalent of 10 seconds of experienced time, and cannot do this again for awhile.
Bio- Ryan was a child prodigy before everything went to hell,he had made tons of money doing various (barely) legal things. His father was in an obscure branch of the government which dealt in planning for the future of the US, and he was the one that brought up the idea of the bunkers, basically giving him a guaranteed spot in Bunker 29. the largest of the bunkers. His father never made it to the bunker, so he lives in a room with his little sister. Ryan first discovered his powers when his little sister fell from a storage rack when getting some medicine for her recent headaches, Ryan ran to catch her but he was all the way across the warehouse level, much to far to get anywhere near her in time, when all of a sudden, something shifted and he began to experience things slowed down. He ran across the warehouse in what seemed like a long time, but was actually about 1 second.
Personality-A bit scatter-brained, but very trusting and will do anything to help out anyone.
Weapon- None. Ryan tries to resolve his conflicts without violence.

Tom discovered his power when one day he was on his computer not knowing what to do wishing it was a stronger PC able to run Minecraft better when suddenly his FPS increased dramatically it was like this for about a minute and then it went back down he was amazed. Personality-(Obviousness.) He is a bit of a nerd loving computers and things like that luckily he has his looks to compensate for that. he sometimes gets confused and cant speak properly. Weapon- (You can choose a melee weapon to use instead of your powers. NO guns.) *fallout reference incoming* Nail board!

Name- Alfa Andrew Age- 21 Gender (Male or Female)- Male (Missing one) Appearance- His Appearance are mostly wear scientist clothing but blood stains all over after radiation infestation. He is also wears glasses and has a pen on his pocket (his science jacket). His style of hair are quite normal but "blushy".
Power- He has no power but only weakening him after radiation. Making them highly chances of being death by attacks in just one blow (which means it will make him much weaker than normal counterparts other than boost power). He is also won't able to run very fast due to radiation or causes heart attack.
Bio- In before time of nuclear apocalypse, he is a young adult who has graduate in university degree of science and engineering by the time in the end of his learning. His family are proud enough to make celebration about his success from his family house. In grace of joy, his parents are asking him to have a job at the city where he can continue to be a useful man in the country. But for a smith of the problem, he doesn't know where to find jobs in the city. His parent has asked, "If you continue your journey there, you will know where to stop and where to rest. You will know when you grown older". But his joy hasn't comes when tries to enter the city but he just continue to move forward anyway.
On his way to find a new job, he first to visit at the recruitment centre to know all details before planning for his new job. The job finder "Miss Tyles" has asked "what is your personal skills or do you have diploma, so I can find your best job for you". He handed the degree of science and engineering. After various of documents in the locker that "Miss Tyles" find. She found a perfect job for him to find, "Hmm, I got a perfect job for you. Can you take a job as an Engineer or Scientist" she said. He chose his job as a scientist, after every signatures and rule's regulations. He is accepted for the job but his happiness isn't there yet.
After he got signed a new job as a scientist, he is working at engineering lab. For here, there is a lot of gadgets that machines are untested. The new head of this lab was "Senior Professor Jackle" who lead the progress of machines. He is welcomed to have talented professor to know the equations of many prototype bases that he will able to study it and build it. He is also wearing scientist clothing before his job begins.
As for nuclear breakdown in this story, there was an alarm outside of the lab. He didn't realise anything but he notice the sound of the alarm makes like nuclear missile launching siren. Other professors are start panicking and attempt to flee for the nuclear siren, the military officer has asked to go and into nuclear-proof underground bunker to prevent from radiate explosion. Soon as they enter the bunker and total lock-down. Missile has struck to the ground like an earthquake. Lucky, he was survived on bunker 29 that he was staying right now. Unfortunately for him, he has few minor drawbacks after toxic radiation has sweep through bunkers.
He is now one of the only survivor rest in his vain. He misses his family and his work after explosion and toxic attacks. This is his story has begin here.
Personality-He is quite arrogant sometimes after nuclear apocalypse because misses of his family. Also, he is quite intelligent for his kind but panicking and attempting too much making him worst. Another thing, he likes to build things since childhood.
Weapon- Hammer and his pen can be a weapon but unreliable.
Skillset- True Skill (Actual): 1. Can build basic stuff and variates. (like barricades, crude wooden roofs) 2. Possible able to repair mechanical/electronic equipments (since he is learning engineering too).
True Flaws (Actual and un-cure): 1. Won't run very fast but limited to walk and short run (Since radiation causes his ability to run are highly reduced) 2. Weaker and vulnerable (Also radiation causes his health to reduce, making him an easy death).
Suggestions- Where is gender?? Pictures of a person are ok in application but putting in words aren't helping.
Other- "Hello", my name is alfieq. (Seriously, alfieq is my real name).
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
The Orient's Pearl
Name- Derek Marverde Age- 19 Appearance- Power- Geokinesis. He can manipulate any form of earth, be it dust, dirt, rocks, or sand. The amount he can control is currently equivalent to his own strength, a.k.a, if he can exert about two tons of force, that's the amount of earth he can control.
Bio- Derek lived pretty easy, as his father was CEO in some big company he never knew the name of. He benefited greatly from being an only child, and though his dad was often away, he still stayed a cheerful child, skipping through life easily. Though deemed to be smart by most, he was extremely lazy, to the point where his grades would end up very low that people would question his supposed intelligence.
As he aged, he began to know more and more about the world, and got to spend more time with his dad as he learned of his business. Apparently, his firm was joint-contracted with several other engineering firms for the building of several bunkers, though theirs in particular was bunker 29. This inspired him to go get an engineering course in college.
But that didn't happen, of course, as the nukes fell from the sky. Evacuated to the bunker, Derek would have to continue his studies there. During this time, his father had grown sick, which struck both father and son as odd, as this bunker was supposed to protect them. Soon enough, his father passed away, and life dulled for Derek, being the sole heir of what's left of the Marverde family.
One day, as he played with an antique hourglass, he thought how funny it would be if the sand went upwards instead of down. This was about when he realized his powers, but kept a secret. After this revelation, he decided to observe random people who may have been displaying such powers as well.
Personality-Bright and cheery he may be, Derek still stays reserved at all times, a smile constantly on his face. He makes light of any situation, and gets by with a laugh. He loves to throw around quips and smart remarks about everyone, but never means any harm. Weapon- He has a pair of tonfas by his belt loop at all times, should he ever find the need for extra range, but most of the time he just uses Judo mixed with a bit of kick-boxing. Skillset- Derek is great at close combat, making use of his speed and knowledge of leverage to throw around opponents even twice his size. While not exactly fragile due to his training, his body isn't really built to withstand that many hits. Basically a Glass Cannon/Fragile Speedster. Suggestions- Other- Yo, how you doing, Kidd?
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
Sometimes I wonder if it's all too easy.
Lying, cheating, stealing your way to victory.
Though just how far would you fall for a dream?
As the nuclear bombardment has finish, he is started to get sick due to radiation. He heard nothing but few noise and silent, but he is manage to survive in the bunker. There are strange noises around bunker 29, so he attempt slowly going out of one of private rooms and creeps in. Unfortunately, strange noise started to get more corrupted than before since he left the private room.
