    Ando: Every hero is on a journey to find his place in the world, it is a JOURNEY, you don't start at the end, otherwise they can't make a movie about it later.


    Heroes?a hero, like time is relative. A hero could mean many things to many people. Regardless the Hero will always face his or her own call to action and be forced to make the choice. Between the prospects of glory or the promise of safety. However fate isn?t so kind as to wait for the decision to be made?

    In a time of darkness four years after the death of Sylar, the government is a wreck. In the wake of Nathan Petrelli?s death a president has been replaced by a council. However this council has taken hold of every aspect of America. With the formation of the Nation Security Bureau, the gifted men, women, and children of the world have been forced into hiding. However the NSB will play hide and seek, for they have a tracking system. The girl formerly known as Molly is now a simple machine, no free will and no thought.

    Far from helpless, those with powers have taken action. Rallying together they have formed a team called RST (Resistance Strike Team). At the front line of this team is Peter Petrelli, (the only Hero from the show who isn?t dead). With a team of brave heroes, he lead a mission to go back in time, two years. They succeeded in protecting Molly from the NSB, however when they returned to the present, they found things have become far worse then they can imagine. Molly lead the NSB to many dangerous people, among these the ?Boogie Man?. Now the Boogie Man is in control of the NSB and the RST desperately struggles to stay alive. In order to do that they need the aid of an old friend Professor Suresh, who is currently in Canada aiding heroes on the run. So Canada bound the RST has begun to mobilize, however they aren?t the only gifted one?s looking for the Professor?

    Rules and guidelines

    1.Obey the TOS at all times.


    2.This one is important so remember it: PM your character sheets to the GM for approval before posting them. I cannot stress this enough, because I would not want 13 characters running around regenerating, shooting fire balls, freezing people, making weapons out of furniture.

    3.Powers have no limit, look at Marvel, DC, Dark horse, anything. Anything sort of super human, or unusual power. I am going to be pretty loose about this, until somebody PM?s that their power is killing people with their mind. Powers could allow you to do something like that, but not an instant death deal. Like I said the super hero world is a good place to start.

    4. No doubles of characters and/or powers. If someone is already a Fire user or a regenerative character, then think of something else. (See rule 2)

    5.The two main Factions are NSB and RST. Eventually new sides will open. Independent players are HEROES who haven?t chosen alliance yet, mostly because they haven?t been discovered by either side.

    6.NO Cannon characters. I?ll play Peter Petrelli, but I want to have OC?s for the most part. However whoever wants to step up as the Boogie Man, take the part. If you do it?s a BIG role, CO-GM level.

    7.Side-plots are encouraged greatly along with any main-plot or mission set up by the GM. Love, pregnancies, and emotional issues are considered side-plots (Keep it PG if you?re going to do anything of the sort. See rule 1.)

    8.Posts must be at least one paragraph.

    9.No killing other characters without consulting me, the CO-GM, or the character.

    10.Be as realistic as the world of the game allows

    11.Two character limit

    12.Keep OOC to a minimum.

    13. All non-gifted players,( if you choose to be a Linderman type) must have an alliance to either the NSB or RST

    14.Peter is the o

    Welcome GreyJedi125

    Name: Emmanuel, Manuel, "Manny" Mendez
    Age: 19
    Appearance: Dark hair, tan skin, brown eyes. 5'10", 145lbs. Athletic.
    Gender: male
    Special Ability: telekinesis
    Nationality: American, hispanic descent
    Talents: Artist, martial artist, student
    Current Location: New York City
    Affiliation: Independent as of now. Looking for RST
    Family: Carmen (mother), Ismael (younger brother), Sarah ( baby sis )
    Personality: Formerly good natured and happy, family oriented. Now morose and nihilistic and on the run due to persecution from NSB.

    Bio: Manuel always displayed a modicum of his TK abilities as a child. Especially when he was excited or hungry. If he wanted his rattle, it would mysteriously float to him, as would his bottle when the time came. His mother only discouraged him from doing this in public. But as it always happened, someone would find out, or suspect and they would have to move. So the Mendez family had to move alot. Despite this, Mama Mendez always made her son feel special and told him so. She said that he had a great gift and a great destiny, and somehow, that always made the bad times feel not so bad.

    When puberty hit, Manuel's powers increased exponentially and seemed almost out of control. This was a very difficult time for theMendez family and for Manuel especially. He felt guilty for the trouble he was causing. As fate would have it, he joined a Tae Kwon Do Dojo and began to learn martial discipline, which helped him greatly to control his powers, hence Manuel went to the Dojo religiously.

    Generally a friendly loner during his years in highschool, Manuel opted to go to art college, however, he still had to work at the local gift shop. His schedule was quite busy with Art College, work and training. Life was for the most part tolerable, until the NSB. Now Manuel is on the run and homeless. He did not wish to get his family in even greater trouble, so he simply left. Now after so many close calls, he is looking for the rumored RST. He is tired of running and wants to fight back.

    Weapon: Besides his martial arts and telekinesis, manuel is also an expert with the Bo staff.

    OOC: No, see he does retains them by remembering the person he took them from. PRetty sure the show said that he could, hence his ability to do so in those future episodes. And it's not really god modding, it's the character, and since I'm GM I have the liberty to have a slightly all powerful character but don't worry about it I'm not going to be unfair.

    IC:pEter Petrelli, David Ferth (NPC, Manipulates and creates fire)
    Canadian Border of New york

    It was December, and snowy. The white contrasted with the current greys and brown. "I've been here before" David said lookign through some rubble. The landscape was a dark ruin. Burning cars, burnt houses, debris, broken windows, boarded up doors. "It was green last time I was here, and the sky..." David said looking up with sadness. "The sky was blue,and the sun shined bright" he added, Peter lowered his head in despair. "When we look back I always ask myself, was it worth it. Exchanging our planet to save those victimized by the NSB and I always answer the same thing," he explained to David as they walked amongst the rubble, "And that's if I had known the answer, I'd never have had to ask the question."
    "Chandler Billings huh" David said as they came to a stop, "And Emmanuel Mendez" Peter added.
    The two they spoke of were both currently in New york somewhere, they were close. His ability to locate the gifted ones came from contact with Molly, "Do you think they'll come along..."David asked as they continued to walk out of the rubble, they came to an old highway. The snow danced in the air, it was nice to see something of nature was stil left. "I don't know, but we have to try" Peter said.

    They paused, Peter closed his eyes as he began to search for them and using his Telekenesis he contacted them at the same time.

    "Emmanuel, Chandler...this is Peter Petrelli. I'm coming to help you..."

    TAG: Emmanuel and Chandler

    IC: Emmanuel Mendez

    FDR DRIVE, New York City, Lower East Side

    It was December and snowy.The white contrasted with the current greys and brown. But Emmanuel hardly noticed anymore. How long has it been snowing, Emmanuel no longer knew. All he knew now was that he was about to freeze to death. He had not eaten in days. He'd been running away from NSB agents for days now, maybe even weeks since he'd last encountered them. Now he'd finally given them slip, he was almost convinced of this.

    Presently, he was under the bridge, behind a bunch of large dumpsters. Someone had set a fire inside one of them the night before, but it had gone out hours ago, thanks to the snow. Emmanuel had covered himself with an old filthy comforter and a shawl he had thrown over himself and the rags he wore, but now they he was completely covered in white snow. He could hardly feel his limbs. He could not move and his teeth ached from all the chattering. He was drifting in and out of conciousness, and he saw images of his family in his mind. Happy images of happier times. He smiled at his mother, who often loved to muss his hair now and again. He saw himself teaching his little brother Ismael, how to do a proper horse stance, and also singing songs to his baby sister sarah.

    Maybe it was better this way. It was much better than being a NSB guinea pig.

    Starngely enough, Emmanuel's powers seemed to be operating at heightened levels. Even half frozen to death, he could actually feel the movement of the snowflakes all around him.He was almost able to discern a pattern to what seemed like random drifting motions, but alas, he needed to sleep. Fortunatelly, it was this heightened state that allowed him to sense motion from well over 100 yards away. This allowed him to know and quickly get away from any undesireables that tried to approach him.....but now, it was time to sleep.

    Emmanuel's eyes flickered, then closed. The snowflakes on his eyelashes felt too heavy and burdensome to lift.

    "Emmanuel, Chandler...this is Peter Petrelli. I'm coming to help you..."

    "Huh? Who's there?" Emmanuel said, rousing back to conciousness. Was he hearing things? No, he hadn't heard it. He was at the point where he could feel it when people spoke. This was something inside his head. What was the name....Peter Petrelli...."

    Emmanuel's eyes went wide with recognition. This was the leader of the 'Resistance', speaking to him at his most desperate hour. This was a Godsend. Tears welled in Emmanuels eyes as he struggled to move as hope burned fiercely inside his chest.

    "I am here..." he said in a barely audible voice, vapor from his breath going out before him. Emmanuel projected his thoughts with all the strength he had left, before unconciousness slowly crept in to claim him.

    PEter Petrelli, David Ferth(NPC)

    The two had just walked into what was once the Lincoln Tunnel. There was a giant crack in side that let water bleed through like an open wound.The lights in the tunnel went out when the east coast lost power a year ago after the NSB set out to capture an fifteen year old who could channel heat energy. David instinctively light a fire ball in his palm that lit the way. " This city used to be my home" Peter said as he moved the hair away from his eyes. David thought back to his home, he lived in London at the time. He had moved from Maine when he was twelve, he wasn't ever told why but he knew it was something that at the time he couldn't understand. But he did now... Predjudice,he was well aware of it now. When he was younger his father had had an ability to manipulate matter down to the cell. The power was catostrophic, his father was constant killing those around him. Preventign oxygen form entering the lungs, stopping blood flow. So his mother took him and fled.

    The exited the bridge to see across the horizon a man under an old tattered blanket.

    IC: Chandler Billings
    Randall Drive, Massena New York nearly two and a half miles north of Syracuse.

    "Well Mom school blew big time today." Chandler said as he walked in the door to his house. His mother wasn't home yet, this was strange she said she'd be home early today. 'Well I guess she couldn't get off early.' he thought as he dropped his bookbag next to the couch. He proceeded to walk toward the kitchen.

    "Emmanuel, Chandler...this is Peter Petrelli. I'm coming to help you..."

    The message came from nowhere. He turned around to see if maybe it was something on TV, but nothing was on. "Ok Chandler no more late night snacks." Chandler said as he resumed his trek to the kitchen for a drink. However something told him that it was more than that, he had read up on telepathy and knew it's abilities. "Peter Petrelli, hmm. Well let's see what he wants." Chandler then pulled a sketchbook from his bookbag and drew something, it was himself with a small radar pulse eminating from his head. "That ought to work." he added. He then placed his hand on the paper and focused his thoughts. "This is Chandler, what's this about? What do you need to help me with?" he thought sending it in a telepathic message to the person who had just talked to him in the same manner. "And who exactly are you and how is it you know my name and can use telepathy?" he added, he was full of questions, who was this man, and what was he helping him with?
