Everybody Wants To Rule The World
Storyline: (revised October 2018)
The apocalypse is here. The world as we know it is long gone, and now humans are beginning to rebuild, and some have gained extraordinary powers and abilities through the years. From evolution, or perhaps nuclear poisoning, nobody is really sure. There are small villages and colonies spread about the planet, all trying their best to rebuild what they can remember. Most are led by small monarchies, kings and queens that are constantly battling to have more power and be the ruler of more land. The most powerful leaders tend to be the most corrupt- and that’s where you will come in.
One day you awaken in a dark room, with one lantern in the center. Looking around, you notice that there are several others around you. They are all just waking up, and seem as confused and terrified as you are. You look to the lantern again, and see that it is being held by a figure in a dark cloak. From it comes a surprisingly comforting voice. “Good, good…” he says. “You are all awake. As I’m sure you all know, the world is in jeopardy. The rulers of the continents have become more angry and powerful than ever. They are now fighting to rule the entire world, not just their continents. The rulers of the oceans have even awakened for the fight. But the leaders are corrupt. All of the nations are in trouble, especially if Queen Scythe of Antarctica is to gain more power. She drains her people of resources to fight in the war and gain more land, and her people suffer. We can’t allow leaders like her to control us! All of you have powers that are far greater than anyone I have ever seen, and I intend for you to end this war and stop the tyranny of the leading kings and queens. You are going to rule the world.”.
You are not sure quite how you feel about this strange plan, but you do agree that the kings and queens must stop treating their people so badly, so you agree to the quest. You know your powers are stronger than most; and you intend to use them. But as your quest goes on, how will you handle the situation? Will you fight for freedom, or will you decide that you should be the one to rule the world?
Spots: (revised October 2018)
Power of Fire- You can create and manipulate fire. Your body temperature has an average of 700 degrees fahrenheit, but can drastically change based on your mood. You burn people by touch, and must wear special clothing that isn’t burnt by you. Water is your biggest weakness, and it can cool you to a normal temperature that doesn’t allow you to use your power.
Power of Water- You can create and manipulate water. You are much colder than an average person, and your average body temperature is negative 50 degrees fahrenheit. You can freeze people by touch, but fire can warm you up and weaken your powers. You do well in the ocean and in colder climates.
Power of the Earth- You can create and manipulate rock, dirt, sand, sediment, etc. You are average sized, but you weigh four times that of a normal person. Anyone who punches you can expect a broken hand. The power of Air is your weakness, as it can weaken your abilities and bring you to weigh and have the strength of an average human. You are rather slow.
Power of Air- You can create and manipulate air, even if you were to go to space. You are average sized, but weigh nothing. You can choose to stay on the ground or float as you wish. The power of Earth is your greatest weakness, it can weaken your abilities and even make you weigh that of an average human. You are extremely fast.
Power of Canines- You can turn yourself into and speak with all canines of the world, even those that are extinct. You are much faster than any human, and have heightened senses. You work well with others, especially those with power of Felines, even if you wouldn’t like to admit it. The power of the Sea and of Avians are difficult for you to fight, but your powers can not be weakened by them.
Power of Felines- You are much faster than any human, and have much stronger senses. You can turn into and speak with all felines of the Earth, even those that are extinct. You work best with others that have the power of the Canines, even if you don’t like to admit it to them. You, like the Canines, have difficulties fighting avians, but are a threat to weaker people with the power of the Sea. Your powers can not be weakened.
Power of Equines- You are faster than even the Canines and Felines. You can turn into and speak with all Equines of the world, even extinct ones. You tend to be solitary, but may lead a group of weaker people that like you, have the power of Equines. Felines and Canines are a threat to you, as they are much stronger. You tend to be majestic and find being a leader easy.
Power of the Sea- You can turn into and speak to all creatures of the Sea. You may do well teaming up with a person that has the power of Water, as you could both give each other many advantages. Strong ones with the power of the Felines may be a threat for you, as they naturally have a taste for fish.
Power of the Mind- You can read all minds, and see the past of everyone. On rare occasions, you may see glimpses of possible futures. It is more difficult to do this with others that have powers, but you can sometimes control a person by entering their mind and telepathically convincing them to do things. You can enter dreams of people that give you permission to do so, and can use this to your advantage.
Power of Plants/Nature- You can control plants’ growth and decay. You can age them forward or backward, and make them grow to extraordinary sizes. Fire is your weakness, as it can burn through your beloved plants and make it impossible for you to use them. You can make a plant of your choice appear whenever you wish it to.
Power of Poison/Darkness- You are poisonous at the touch. You most likely ear gloves so that you don’t hurt others by accident, and you can create poison with differing effects at your will. No poison effects you. You can blend in with shadow and you are a threat to everyone at night.
Power of Avians- You can turn into and speak with all Avians of the world. You can fly as a bird, and can make wings appear on your human form as well. You may be friends with those that have the power of Reptiles, and fear those with the power of Air, as they can destroy your flight.
Power of Reptiles- You can turn into and speak with all Reptiles of the Earth. You seem to be the weakest of those with power over animals, but you can turn into a dragon when angry. You may be a friend with someone with the power of Avians, or even with someone of Darkness and Poison.
Power of Time: You can not go back or to the future, but you can freeze a moment. You can escape a bad situation, or walk closer to someone to listen in on a conversation when you bring normal time back, and nobody will notice. You can slow down or completely stop the present, and nobody but those who have your power but are weaker at it will be aware of what is happening. You are able to move and even hurt people while time is frozen. If you only slow time, you will appear faster to normal people.
Power of Fortune: You can curse others with good or bad luck, in everything or in just one field. You could give them bad luck finding their lost pendant, or just bad luck in general. You can't give yourself good or bad luck.
Power of Healing: You can heal others, but it will make them extremely tired. Your healing uses their energy to heal their wounds at a quicker rate. Bad wounds may make them unconscious.
