"You've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet."
Nick Fury, Iron Man (2008)


We live in a changing world.

Every day, more and more seemingly average ponies are discovering innate abilities within themselves that set them far up on the evolutionary curve, including enhanced strength, telepathy, and teleportation, to name a few. Most attempts at going public with these powers are often met with scorn and hate. Neither party truly understands the other, nor wants to. The “normals” do their best to hide the fact that a freak was living among them, and the “supers” are often run out of town. These ponies are usually scared, confused, and possibly angry. They turn their backs on the world, resorting to crime to channel their hatred. Some are downright villainous.

Some aren't.

Who are we? We are the Super Equine Administration (S.E.A. for short), an extension of the Royal Guard that monitors, recruits, and dispatches ponies with..."unique" skills, to fight the battles we never could. We realize that bringing these criminals to the justice they deserve may attract some unsavory attention, so we encourage our field-recruits to hide their identity, as not to bring harm to their loved ones.

The enemy is mounting. Will you be ready?

Hello, and welcome to the World of Heroes sign-up thread! In this canon you will find Dashing heroes, distressed damsels, scheming villains, and giant robots attacking "The City" on a regular basis. If you would like to join the S.E.A.'s war on super-crime, please fill out the character sheet listed below. Please be as descriptive as you can (within reason). Don’t worry if you don’t understand one or two things, I’ll post an example sheet.

-///-
Name:
Alias (Super-Hero name):
Age:
Sex:
Appearance (Street appearance and costumed appearance) (Negated if you can post a picture of your character):
Occupation:
Powers/Specialty (Explained below):
Weaknesses (At least one, even if it's just a personality flaw):
History/Background:
Personality:
Current Residence:
Signature Attack (Optional):
Others:
-///-

A quick word on specialties. In order to help give this RP a feel of actually having superpowers, I’m applying the specialty system. Every hero will fall under one of three power specialties: Strength, Speed, and Tactics. Strength characters (Characters like Superman, The Thing, Juggernaut, Bane, etc.) will do one extra damage point on every attack. Speed characters (The Flash, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Quicksilver) will have one damage point deducted from every attack they take. Tactics characters (The Invisible Woman, Batman, Kitty Pride) don’t get any combat advantages, but will do better overall in stealth situations. Just pick whichever specialty best suits your character. Don’t worry if your character is halfway between two specialties, just pick whichever better suits your character and your RP Style.

In conclusion, I’d like every character to have a short thread strictly for their character. These threads will be to help me get a sense of your RP Style, and to help ease your character into the canon. However, I realize that this is an extremely optimistic goal and that it may or may not happen. But still, I can always hope. If, for any reason, you have anything that can’t or shouldn’t be discussed in this thread, let me know, and I’ll find a way for us to talk privately. Excelsior!

No, not that I can think of. I'll see if I can't get myself to write something substantial for the history/powers at some point, though it's been difficult for me to get in the mood needed for writing out this stuff.

While we do have a few spots open, we won't be introducing new characters for a while. Since you submitted a sheet early, you'll have first dibs later. In the mean time, you can work on your sheet and refine your character. Sound good?

There's more than one kind of stubbornness.

Firstly, a big thank you to Asma for being so patient with his (her? either way...) patience for our fellow RPers.

Secondly, if anyone has a way to contact the users Blizzard and/or TwilightFire, please do so. You can e-mail me at [email protected]

Finally, and this is a big one, in order to keep this canon's heart beating, I am begining a series of One-Shots. Anyone may apply for one of these threads. Here is a description of what these threads would be like:

First, to apply for a one-shot, simply post a sheet with the subject "One-Shot", or "One-Shot Application", or the like. I'll be more lenient on character approval for one shots. Once we agree on a character sheet, we'll begin to plan the thread's direction. The plan for the thread can be super complex, or can be as simple as "Gru goes to steal the moon, and my character Donut Steel stops him." Then, once we've finalized all the details, we'll actually do the thread. Finally, we'll come back here and have a post-thread. These will probably not be as lengthy/in-depth as the post-threads for a normal thread.


If you have any questions, feel free to ask it here, or to e-mail me. Again, it's [email protected]

And finally FINALLY, a Jontron gif. Because you deserve it.

I'll take my leave now.

I think I might know why, but I won't say for privacy reasons.

So is this place dead or what? :/
>> No. 451652
>>451650
We're waiting on Blizzard and/or Twilight. I can hardly do this mission on my own, calm down.
>> No. 451653
>>451650
Not really dead, but more like in hibernation. If you're interested, you could have your character be in a one-shot thread (info here: >>451393)

>>451631
Thank you. If you ever feel like applying here, feel free.

>>451633
Would you mind e-mailing me about it?
>> No. 451654
>>451653
Sorry, it's rather personal to Twilight, so I'd rather let her inform people(if she returns) of her own volition.
>> No. 451656

Alright, I understand.

Set them to npc parts or write them off till they return. Thats a suggestion.
>> No. 451793
>>451784
Uh, that's not even close to what I was talking about.
I was asking him how the one off threads would work.
>> No. 451794
>>451784
That might work, if they weren't major characters. But thanks for the suggestion.

>>451763
>>451793
First, one shot, note one off. Second, it would be like a mini-arc in the grand scheme of the RP. Instead of focusing on the SEA's team, it would focus on a fighter that works alone.
>> No. 451796
>>451794
Hm...... Eeeeenteresting.
I'll do some braining about dat.
>> No. 451797
>>451796
You do that.

Also, I'm sorry, but After Equestria just isn't my jam. I'm sorry, but I think that I'll have to drop out.
>> No. 451799
>>451797
Kay. 's cool.
>> No. 452013
I have come up with a plan.

Since Blizzard and TwiFire have effectively gone "off the grid", I will be re-booting the canon, kind of. This means that 2 slots are now officially open, and that Sparking Ember and Rivet Bolt get first dibs. If neither claim their spot in two weeks, they lose dib-privileges.

Should Blizzard and/or TwiFire re-appear, they will be free to write themselves in.

Sound good?

Yeah, at the moment, it's lookin like Twilight is going to have to vanish a lil bit.
Proceed, number one.

By "vanish a little bit", do you mean that she's completely out of the picture, or that she may return at a later date?

May return at a later date.
>> No. 452130
>>452013
...Well then. I will indeed be calling dibs on that slot, but my lack of extended access to a computer and the need to prepare for an event tomorrow means I won't be able to get back to brainstorming my history until around Monday next week.
>> No. 452132

That's fine, just get back here whenever you can.
>> No. 452301
I'm glad to see this place isn't dead.

On another note, I'm afraid that I won't be rejoining Ponychan for a very long time...

Hell to it, I might not re-join ever. I just wanted to apologize for dropping out of the cannon so suddenly. A crazy amount of IRL stuff has been going on lately, and I sort of dropped out of Ponychan.

Sorry about not posting this sooner, by the way.
>> No. 452329
>>452301
Well, thanks for letting me know.

If you ever come back, and World of Heroes is still a thing, we'd gladly take you back. If not, then know that it's really been fun, and I wish you the best.

Thanks for playing!

Zoticus, if you have some sort of chat system I could contact you with (Steam, Skype, etc), I'd like to try and bounce some ideas off of you on fleshing out Steel's history beyond the barebones concept I have in my head right now.
