Seeing as it’s been nearly a month since the last post, I think it’s fine if I send another one. That okay? We good, staff?
Time to actually answer this question… With an example worldbuilding writeup!
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.
‘Lugar da Morte’ - Island of Death is a Superhero RP concept free for the taking. Players write in the setting of a military-controlled island base as unsuspecting members of society brought there to be molded into the perfect superhuman soldiers; defending earth from whatever threats the mansion owners decide qualifies.
I’ve left a lot of the details blank - the ultimate goal of the rp, what keeps players from stealing a vehicle and escaping, what exactly is contained beneath the island, if the project has any superheroes on its payroll already, and of course, what threats to these naive patrons - or perhaps the world - exist.
If I were to do this, I’d make a character sheet akin to this:
Name: Who do you think you are, anyway?
Gender: Prof. Oak noises
Powers: The unique abilities you’re capable of.
Power Explanation: Detail exactly how your power operates. It can have a bonkers origin, but try to at least partially ground it in scientific reasoning. The more homework done, the likelier to approve.
Appearance: What your character looks like.
Personality/Bio: Your character’s quirks and flaws, and how they got to where they are now.
Ideally I would say no more than two characters per player, but that’s totally up to you! If you want to run this by all means go ahead - you’ve got a good amount of people earnestly looking forward to it.
