    Extraordinary: The Beginning

    This RPG was inspired by the upcoming show Heroes

    It is 2007 and amazing things are about to happen in the world. People, everyday people, from all walks of life will begin to start having extraordinary powers. And powers they might already know well! From shows, movies, games, and comics; these powers come from fictional characters they might know all too well. But why? Why have they come to have these abilities? And what if there are others like them? ...Others that'll use their abilities for evil.

    In the town of Billings, Montana within the United States...these people will begin an incredible journey that can only be described as one word....extraordinary.


    Intro: Welcome to Extraordinary: The Beginning! Here you will find yourself in modern day with the powers of a known superhero. And just so you know; just because the hero or heroine you choose is a man or woman...it doesn't mean that your character has to be. A woman could get Superman's powers and a man could get Invisible Woman's powers.
    Once interested, send me a PM of your interest in a character and tell me which one. I'll reply with if he/she is available and the powers specifically outlined. You might not get all the hero's powers. Then you may PM me the character sheet. After I approve, you may post it. Then wait for the first post to begin.

    Here is the list of those to choose from at the moment:
    The Hulk [reserved]
    Phoenix/Jean Gray
    Superman
    Batman
    The Flash
    Anakin Skywalker
    Crimson Fox
    Spider-Man
    Martian Manhunter
    Invisible Woman [reserved]
    Ghost [reserved]

    After all characters are taken, no more players will be allowed until new characters become available. Over time more shall be available, I promise. Also, your character doesn't have to be from Montana or even the United States to be in Billings. You'll just need to think of a reason why he or she is there. Family? Business? A strange calling? Family or Personal Vacation? Your choice.

    As GM I take two characters. Bwuahahaha. ;)

    Name: Patrick Kennerly
    Sex: Male
    Age: 21
    Nationality: American
    Hair Color & Style: Black and parted in the front
    Eye Color: Brown
    Appearance: 5'11" and about 132 lbs. A bit thin, but not overly so.

    Abilities: [Hulk]"Hulks" up and when he does, becomes amazingly powerful and can jump great distances. Also in Hulk form, Patrick is close to invincible as nothing can seem to hurt him...knock him out perhaps, but not truly hurt him for long. The angrier he gets, the stronger he becomes.[/Hulk]

    Reason for being Billings, Montana: Lives in Billings actually

    Bio: Patrick Kennerly is a 21 year old working at a Borders Books, just living life and trying to get by. Your true everyday person, not much special and out of the ordinary with him...until now.

    Patrick has always been a very caring and contemplative person, but harbors a very bad anger. It takes a lot to unleash it, sometimes with it being stored for a long time. When it comes out, most people keep a far distance between them and Patrick. And it just so happens that now, very soon, he'll wake up with the powers of none other than the Incredible Hulk.

    With his anger amplified to levels way beyond an average human's, will he be able to cope with the world? Where will he turn to for help? And is it even possible for him to control and harness this new power, how could it ever be used for the good? Soon, he'll discover some of the answers he seeks, but not quite all.

    *********

    Name: Roger Shakire
    Sex: Male
    Age: 28
    Nationality: Canadian
    Hair Color & Style: Bald
    Eye Color: Blue
    Appearance: 6'3" and about 190 lbs. A very strong build...think Riddick.

    Abilities: [Ghost]Intangibility.[/Ghost] And also an original power, he "becomes one" with weapons, making them practically extensions of himself.

    Reason for being in Billings, Montana: Visiting girlfriend's family

    Bio: Roger Shakire, a Canadian who kicks ass. A personal trainer for athletes who is currently on vacation with his American girlfriend. His girl's family lives in Billings, Montana and so there he is with him. With such situations, Roger is a little uncomfortable but tries to manage the best he can. Though he feels more ready to work out, help train an athlete, or just plain kick somebodys butt than try to charm a possible future father-in-law.

    Has always had a fascination with weapons of any kind and has minor training in a wide variety of them, soon though he'll somehow learn the power of intangibility from the superheroine Ghost, and his own original power of "becoming one" with any weapon he touches.
    How will Roger react to all of this? Only time will tell...

    Abilities: JEAN GREY/PHOENIX- Telekinesis, telepathy.
    Reason for being in Billings, Montana: Natassia, with her mother and elder brother were moved to Billings, Montana, as a police relocation attempt.
    Bio: Natassia grew up in quite a decent household; a wealthy, caring household, in Moscow, Russia, and learnt Russian and English due to her American mother and Russian father. Her only problem was, through school, she couldn't keep many friends as, due to her fathers career, she moved over the world constantly. This depressed Natassia. Two years pre-living in Billings, her father grew an alcohol addiction. Through this, he lost his job and was stranded in Tokyo for half a year. Whilst living in a small apartment in central Tokyo, Natassias father's alcohol addiction was heightened and he followed through with violence, attacking her mother. Three weeks ago, her father decapitated Natassia's little sister with his bare hands, which the entire family witnessed, and broke her mothers neck. The police obviously got involved, arresting the father, but he escaped days after with the rest of his family on his mind. He was unfound so the mother and now two children were moved to a small town back in America. Natassia has recently been accepted into a local highschool and her brother, Kartrym, now 19, has begun studying for a degree in the city university. Her mother is restricted to their home, due to her lack of mobility capabilities. Natassia is currently suffering with depression and self harms with rage for her father. Any way to avenge her sisters death, she would take without thought.

    OOC: Decided to wait just a little longer in starting this, in anycase...Welcome all of you, thank you for applying to this grand RPG. Now, together, let us drench ourselves into this story. Wrap its contents around ourselves and become our characters, it is time for something incredible....no, something...

    Extraordinary

    Hello. My name is Cathair Tamara and about fifty-one years ago, something amazing happened. Something so positively life-changing and existence-shaking, I thought I would go crazy. Of course, that was afterwards. Fifty-one years ago...I was born. Nothing out of the ordinary there, but the fact of who I am. What I am. Now that...that?s something completely different. It all began that day, fifty-one years ago, and through the years I have learned how to control myself, how to hide, how to speak out. How to live and exist. But now, in the present times, there are no longer just a handful of us, in which most of that handful has already died, but...more. In times, probably soon, life on Earth will become complicated and some would state...unbearable. Unbelievable. And yet, no matter who it is that says that, whether one or many, they will all want more of it. It?ll whet their appetite. They know who they are, but not who they are. Any morning now, they will learn. And that?s what I?m here for...to help them learn. I can only hope fate will bring our meeting and I have a feeling, that it will.

    [Tone of voice changes slightly, like the date has changed to a future time]

    We thought it?d be easy, but it wasn?t. Once we all learned; we had fun, we reveled in the truth together. Humanity was another matter, but in time, they will cope. But some things were put into motion, outside of my or any of the others? grasp, and in so doing...a chemical reaction occurred. These events, these times, these people, all of us, would undergo something that not even I foresaw or felt coming. We are changed now. For the better. We have undergone hardships, we have felt sorrow, we have known defeat. But also have we tasted victory, rewards that truly count, and happiness we have shared. In the beginning, we thought we were different, but truly we are the same we have learned.

    Not only that, but in the beginning, at the same time...we thought we were just another one out there, no matter our status, a sheep among sheep...we thought we were the same...but now, here we are, and we?ve only begun to realize we?re not...we?re....Extraordinary.

    Watch your step. This is our story.


    The Beginning:

    Patrick Kennerly IC:

    Brang! Brang! Brang!

    Damn alarm clock, Patrick?s eyes opened and his fist came crashing down on the alarm clock, whacking the snooze button. Slowly sitting up on the side of the bed, Patrick held his head in his hands due to sleepiness. Yawning, Patrick shook his head slightly as he held it. What a nightmare he had. Apparently there was this girl he loved and they were hanging out together happily, next instant...some military guys come rushing in the way and firing...And some green...thing, Patrick hadn?t seen it clearly, bounded in the way and killed the girl and started wrecking mass havoc on the military and the surrounding area while he merely watched on frightened...then, he got angry...and man, what a nightmare.

    Patrick stood up slowly as he felt a sudden irritation swing into him, like it was deep in his chest and tingling at the bottom of his toes. He tried to ignore it for the moment and began getting ready at seven in the morning for work.

    While he brushed his teeth, he noticed a few cracks in his mirror, making it hard to see. Damn mirror, why did it do that? Punching at the wall in further irritation, Patrick moved off after hearing the stupid alarm clock blaring again. This time he hit the snooze button harder, his morning grogginess not allowing him to think about just turning it off. Stupid thing. He finished brushing his teeth and took a shower. As he did so, he heard the

    IC as Brittnee Emerson

    Brittnee rolled over on her side while lying in bed. She stretched her body out and yawning at the same time, trying to push the sleepiness that clung to her away. Remembering the dream she had before waking up, she stared up at the ceiling, blinking a few times. She dreamt she had powers. She could turn invisible and even throw up force fields to protect her. Sitting up, she laughed it and only began to look around for her two room-mates when she heard the very annoying alarm go off.

    Why do they use that stupid tone? Everyone hates it, for crying out loud.

    Brittnee leaned over in to where her nightstand was and clicked the lime green alarm off. She looked around once more and noticed that both her friends were gone from the apartment they shared. She then remembered that this was one of those rare days when they actually woke up early to have get coffee and go into their college classes. Her classes were usually always later than her friends.

    Getting out of bed, Brittnee fixed the shorts she slept in and then pulled out the hairtie in her hair. She headed to the bath room and yawned while leaning for the black hair brush, without really looking, as she was still very tired, but noticed something odd.

    Brittnee blinked and focused on her hand. What. The. Hell. She couldn't see it! Was she going blind?! No, that's impossible, if she was blind, she wouldn't be able to see anything, she reminded herself and continued to stare at her hand...or where she hand should be.

    Okay, relax. You're very tired, didn't get to sleep until one this morning. Your mind is only playing games on you.

    The woman tried to relax...but then...she saw the mirror. She let out a scream and jumped back. What. The Hell! She didn't even see her flippin' reflection. She looked down at herself to counter what she saw...well what she didn't see in the mirror and found that she couldn't even see her own body!

    "Oh my God!"

    Before anymore shock could settle in, she heard keys sliding into the door of the apartment. Now freaking out, Brittnee went to quickly shut the bathroom door, but found that she had trouble locating her arm. She stared at the door and saw the handle turning. Come on! Please find the door!

    Just as the door began to open to the front of the apartment, Brittnee had finally found the door and swung it close, locking it quickly. She silenced herself, trying to calm her heartbeat and listen to her two friends. They were talking to each other and then a minute later, left again, locking the door to the apartment.

    Fumbling to reach the door, Brittnee opened it slightly and peered out of it. Little did she know where her head was compared to the door and smacked her forehead against the edge of it. She pulled back and rubbed her forehead. If she was actually visible she would be sure she'd get a bruise. Finally, she opened the door slowly to make sure she didn't hit it again and quickly looked around. She guessed they came back to get their things needed for their classes. She sighed and exited the bathroom, trying to slow her breathing.

    What was going on? How could this even happen?? This sort of thing only happened to people in movies and books!

    Feeling about, Brittnee found where she stood next to the bed and sat down carefully, trying to take in all in. Maybe...maybe this was a dream? Odd dream..then again it was just like her other dream before. But why would she be aware of the dream before? Don't you usually forget you have other dreams in that dream? This was getting confusing.

    Finally, able to calm her breathing, she jumped a little when she saw parts of her fingers returning to her sight, which made her heartbeat pick up again, only making the invisible wave cover them again. Dammit.

    Brittnee took in a deep breath and tried to calm herself down. Maybe she should see a doctor or something? She laughed at the thought and closed her eyes, taking in deep breaths. Several minutes later, the ent

    "And that was your que to call. Call right now and you could win a trip to Hawaii."

    A hand flew out of under the covers to push the snooze button on the top of the black alarm clock, but, instead of pushing the button, the clock was knocked off the table. Her hand never touched the clock. It took about two seconds for her to sit up in bed. That is when she saw it. There, coming out of her hand was a thick string of something white, connected to her palm. She began to rapidly shake her hand, but all that happened was the clock shaking and than slamming to the floor. Sarah looked around hoping no one saw that.

    "Sarah you live alone. Nobody can see you."

    Climbing out of bed, her nightgown falling to her feet, Sarah held her hand out and watched the string come out again, hitting the wall. Pulling her hand back the string retracted. This was so cool. She must call work. Sitting on the bed she dialed her boss.

    "Hey Sue, I can't come in...Why? I am vomitting like crazy. Food poison or something...Alright, see you later."

    For at least an hour or so Sarah played with her new discovery. "I am just like Spiderman." That is when it hit her. This wasn't normal. She needed to clear her head. She needed to go to the park. That is where she took kids when they were nervous. Putting on jeans and a red tshirt she went to the park sitting on a bench under a tree. How was she going to deal with this?

    Henry Wilson

    At seven o'clock, the alarm went off. Henry Wilson had already been up for an hour, though. He'd been battling insomnia for the past three nights, and sleep had been scarce. Any sleep he did get was plagued with strange dreams that never seemed to end. They were just continuations of each other.

    And so he had gotten up, showered, and dressed. By eight-thirty, he'd started watching his room's television set, flipping around until he found something interesting on the Discovery Channel.

    At nine-thirty, he'd decided breakfast was in order, and had left his fifth floor hotel room in the direction of the elevator. As his door closed, Henry listened intently to the locks clicking away. And then he realized his key and wallet were still in the room.

    "Damn!" he muttered under his breath.

    He stood at the door for a few moments, before dropping to a knee and fising a business card out of his pocket. He slid it in between the door and the lock, and before he knew what he was doing, the door swung open.

    He stood at the door for a moment, and stood up, hearing a maid roll her cart along the hall. He stepped in quickly, got his wallet and key, and stepped out again, closing the door behind him. The maid didn't notice a thing.

    When he got to the lobby, it was ten o'clock. The in-house restaurant wasn't to Henry's liking; he'd eaten there last night, and hadn't thought much of the service. With a thought, he remembered seeing a nice diner about two blocks away.

    So he started walking.

    Deciding to cut through an alley, Henry noticed a few teens scattered around, wearing hoodies and dark clothes. Their faces were covered by low ball caps, and they wore baggy clothing. Henry made a mental note: four of them.

    And then were around him, two behind him, and two in front.

    "Whatcha doin' around here, man?" said one.

    "Just passing through. Thought I'd get some breakfast." answered Henry.

    This made them laugh for some reason; Heny would've gotten angry, but his mind seemed beyond that now.

    One reached for shoulder, saying, "How 'bout you hand over your wallet."

    The teen's left hand touched his left shoulder, and Henry spun, catching the man's arm in his own left, bringing it in to his side hard. The man's arm made a popping sound, and Henry knew that it was broken. His right hand cam eup fast, the heel of his palm smashing in the guy's nose.

    Within seconds, Henry had realeased him, and had spun left to face his second attacker. The words 'krav maga' flashed in his brain, and his body tensed, right arm shooting out and bashing the teen's sternum. The force of the blow knocked him onto the ground, and Henry turned to the last two.

    He put himself between them, and the swung wildly at him. He caught them both by an arm, and yanked them together, their foreheads hitting each other. Henry ducked out of the way before their hurt bodies could hit, and they fell against each other, dropping to their knees as one. Henry delivered a swift kick to the side of one, and he fell against the other, hard.

    Henry followed through with his movements, and instinctively took a ready stance. One that didn't know about until this morning.

    He relaxed, and, in a dazed state, continued onto the diner. Perhaps he'd get his food to go, and go to the park...

    Kustaa McMahon

    Shady Hotel, Billings Montana


    It was extremely late at night, and Kustaa and his friends had just driven their rusty green rental car to a hotel complex just inside of Billings. It was a royal pain loading and unloading their instruments, especially Morris?s drum kit, which had to be strapped to the roof of the car. Ollie still joked that they lost a snare back there on the highway somewhere.

    Kustaa laughed at this of course, always reassuring his drummer that they hadn?t lost anything, and only gained talent over their years of practicing and playing small-time concerts. Billings would be their first ever large-scale concert, and could very well be their break into the genre of Heavy Metal.

    ?Okay guys,? Kustaa began, addressing Morris, Ollie, Linus, and Robby at the same time. They all listened to their band leader, and sat on the musty couch. ?Practice early in the morning, so get whatever sleep you can while you can. We?ve gotta be prepared for the concert next week.?

    The guys nodded and went about finding their sleeping spots: Ollie taking the couch that he liked the smell of, Linus and Morris complaining about who was going to get the bed and who would get the floor, and Robby being content in the backseat of the rental car. Kustaa, being more preoccupied with the upcoming concert, forgot to stake claim to a fair position.

    Just as the others went to sleep, Kustaa sighed and picked up his guitar and walked outside. He didn?t bother to close the door slowly, because the noise wouldn?t wake up his friends as far as he knew. Robby was even dead asleep in the backseat of the car. Kustaa shrugged and leaned against the hood of the car.

    He began to play, strumming the strings slowly and then picking up into the fast-paced type of music he was used to. He practiced riff after riff, measure after measure, watching how fast his fingers could move against the metallic strings. Soon, he had gone through seven of their songs within a half hour. He sighed and dropped his pick, sleep almost overtaking him.

    But then he felt something of a rush, something like caffeine coursing through his veins as just before his pick his the cold parking lot, he snatched it back up effortlessly and merely stared in amazement. ?What the...??

    Kustaa brought his hand down slowly, eyeing the pick in his hand and narrowed his eyes to the neck of the guitar. His other fingers lay planted in their usual position, and as a precautionary measure, removed and replaced them once more.

    He began to play, slowly, even slower than before. The music began to overtake him and his fingers slid rapidly up and down the strings, not feeling the heat being produced by the friction of his fingers and his guitar pick. The strings where his fingers pressed and his guitar pick itself began to melt and soon fell to the ground in a puddle of goo. Kustaa yelped and dropped his guitar, the noise waking up Robby inside the car.

    ?Stav? Man, what time is it?? Robby said, opening the car door with one hand while rubbing his eyes with the other. ?It?s 4:30 in the morning. What the hell happened to your guitar??

    Kustaa didn?t answer for a minute, eyeing the melted strings and the pick. He recalled everything moving so fast, his hands, his eyes. He had kept up with every motion he normally employed when playing. He even heard how fast the music went in his mind, all of it sounding like it was being played on fast forward. He opened his mouth to speak and sighed. ?I dropped it. Should?ve put the strap on.?

    ?Yeah?? Robby said, taking a seat next to Kustaa on the hood. ?You gonna get a new one? I don?t think Linus is up to sharing his with you. It?d be a lot of work to re-string it to your specifications man.?

    Kustaa nodded. ?Look, I?m gonna go into town,? He said, picking up the pieces of his guitar and the hardened puddles of plastic and metal. He walked over to the dumpster and toss

    Sarai, Sarai!

    The voice was far away, and barely audible. David Bazan was up on stage, deep melodic voice flooding all of Sarai's senses. There was no use talking to her...

    Suddenly the attractive young girl was pulled out of the front row crowd. A big muscly arm attached to hers...

    "What the hell, man!" She furiously turned around, and saw that the man and his gang of cronies were holding here best friend, Mal. It was quite obvious that they were up to no good, and Mal could do nothing about it...

    With a surge of strength even Sarai didn't know she possesed, she ripped her arm out of the iron man's grip, ran over to Mal, and before she knew it, all three of the men were on the ground.

    But she hadn't even touched them...

    All of the eyes were boaring into the back of her head...

    Blackness started to enter her feild of vision, and before she knew what was happening, Sarai fell to the floor, unconscious...


    Sarai had only been hungover once, but it was an experience she would never forget. Unfortunatly for her, it semmed as she woke up that it was an experience she was gong to duplicate that day. A pounding headache and dry throat awaited the pretty girl as she awoke, and for a freightening second, she had no idea where she was.

    It all came rushing back.

    Last night.

    The show.

    The men.

    Mal.

    The hotel room.

    Sarai felt like she was going to vomit, though she knew that wouldn't be happening. There was nothing to throw up. Quickly she sat up in the bed, her Jets to Brazil tee shirt was wet with sweat. Unfortunatly, she really didn't have any other clothes. This was supposed to be a two day trip.

    I can figure all of that later. Right now, I just need to clear my head.

    Sarai remebered a park down the street from when they were driving up last night, and decided that was the best place to go. There was always something magical about fresh air...

    So she stumbled out of bed, put on her trendy, tight jeans, ballet shoes, and zip up jacket, and walked out of the room.

    It was a short, nice walk to the park, and the weather seemed to be perfect for the occasion. Upon arriving, Sarai didn't see anybody else, but it was a big park, and she realized there were probably pleanty of others there...

    OOC: I?m happy to announce a change in ?The List.? Almost all slots are filled now. :)

    The List:

    Crimson Fox [Person Interested]

    Roger Shakire IC:

    The conflict of cool and warm soaked into his body as he slowly woke up from his deep sleep. Not the first time, he woke up like this most of the time, and of course the cool he felt was nothing like he was used to. So it was almost a purely warm sensation when he finally stirred.

    Roger Shakire opened his eyes, yawned twice, then looked across the room at the window facing the foot of the bed. It was open, just the way he liked it. The screen was there to prevent bugs and such, but otherwise it was open and letting the cool air come in. Felt good in the morning to him. He looked next to him to look at the source of the warm side of the morning. His girlfriend, Alyssa Johnsen, laying next to him and cuddled up to him. She used him for the warmth she needed to sleep because she wasn?t as happy with the open window as he was.

    Roger slowly slid away from her, making sure she continued to slumber, he got up from their bed and began to get dressed, he could shower later tonight, already took one last night. Roger finished soon and moved over to the window of their bedroom in her parent?s house. Montana, a pretty place in the United States, he had to admit, but he still preferred good ol? Canada.

    He moved away from the window after a few minutes of observing his surroundings, and went to the door of the bathroom, needing to use it. As he got to the door, the strongly built Canadian yawned and covered up his mouth with his hand. He would have normally clumsily walked into the door, which would of both embarrassed and irritated Roger, but next thing Roger knew...he was right where he wanted to be. On the other side of the door and in his and Alyssa?s bathroom. Roger turned around and looked at the closed door. What the?

    After a few minutes of staring, he shook his head, probably just didn?t remember opening and closing it. He was a little tired still...wasn?t he? Roger was a little confused by that, he was one of the types that when he woke up...he was fully alert the moment his eyes opened. Just a rare morning was all, he shook his head at himself and did his business. He turned to leave and next thing he knew, once again he was on the other side of the door, in the bedroom. He remembered reaching the door and reaching out for the knob...but he didn?t remember opening and closing it at all...

    Roger looked at the bathroom door. It was closed and stood there ominously, seemingly laughing at him. ?Crazy human fool, you can?t go through stuff. You?re not a ghost,? he heard in his head.

    ?Just tired,? Roger murmured to himself with a bit of an irritated grunt, before getting his socks and shoes on.

    ?Mm...,? a yawn, ?honey??

    ?Yes, Alyssa??

    ?Where are you going??

    ?I remembered you saying your dad loves donuts, so I thought I?d go and treat everyone to breakfast. Going to get some donuts.?

    Alyssa smiled sleepily, ?How sweet...ok, well I?m going back to sleep for a little bit.?

    ?Ok, goodnight, babe,? replied Roger before kissing Alyssa?s forehead then moving for the bedroom door after grabbing his keys. Good thing for Alyssa was that she fell back to sleep before noticing Roger go through the door.

    Roger paused for a moment, then shook his head. Impossible, stop thinking that. He moved off toward the front door and that same sensation occurred. Like he went through it...but there was no way he could do that...Roger grumbled at himself and continued onto his truck. As he stopped in front of it before going to open it, he decided to just oblige his tired mind and prove he couldn?t go through doors or walls or anything else for that matter.

    Roger held out his hand toward the truck door and confidently waited for it to touch the metal and feel the normal resistance of a solid against a solid. He felt the metal alright, but there was no resistance at all...he felt like a mist creepi
