Lugar da Morte - discovered by Portuguese sailors well into the north atlantic ocean, with its closest land relative being the Azores, is an island similar in size and formation to the infamous Alcatraz Island, which houses a massive underground military compound joint-operated by US and EU forces. On the top of the island is the large Mansão Enganoso , a three-story mansion covering the grounds, along with separate buildings for housing, recreation, and medical aid. Without a doubt, this is one of the most professional resort locations in the northern hemisphere.
Especially if you’re one of the gifted.
The governments of Europe and the United States constructed this facility to seek out and weaponize those with peculiar abilities, individuals who possess - in layman’s terms - ‘Super Powers’. Leaving this island only occurs if a certain individual was mistakenly taken, and after the immediate evaluation deemed useless. Otherwise, you’re here for life. But don’t think about such things; not while there’s so much to do to help you grow and recover.
Recover from what, you ask? An attack which did practically nothing to you outside of knock you unconscious, but gave the powers that be the opportunity to implant something under the skin of your neck. It shouldn’t be anything to worry about, of course; only those who step out of line have anything to worry about.
What will your goal be? Thrive on the island, participate in the future of superpowered individuals by acting in military operations across the globe, further the advancements of technology and society as well as the perceived rights of those present? Or turn against your gracious hosts, delve deeper into the underground portions of the mysterious island, possibly even escape?

The rp will begin when we have at least five players, and unlike some other RPs, I intend to keep signups open indefinitely. If you’re not quite sure about a concept, or you want to make your case about some secret details, shoot me a PM and we’ll talk.
All Boards rules apply. Be nice, don’t bypass the swear filter, and if you double post your life is automatically forfeit to the vengeful ghosts of moderators past.
I have the final say on whatever occurs here; I don’t intend to be callous about it, and I can definitely be reasoned with, but ultimately, you have to give me the right to be wrong about something if I consistently put my foot down. I don’t want to boot people for consistently challenging an issue, but I reserve the right to.
