With thanks to The First Galactic Republic for the concept, for certain characters, the first thread, much of the wording on this post, and for granting me permission to take over...

Winner - Community Choice Award For Comedy Role Play Game: "The Infinites - the Lamest Heroes", ICOOC




The world of the Infinites is full of excitement and danger. Costumed supervillains wielding great and terrible power run rampant. Crime continues to plague society. Rising to face these dangers are the Infinites. A national organization of superheroes who have vowed to use their superhuman powers for truth, justice, and the American way, the Infinites fight for the common man. They have saved the day countless times from all kinds of evils. The Infinites are real life superheroes. This story is about their adventures... sort of...

Originally the Infinites fought evil across the entire country, but soon it became clear that it was simply too big for them to cover. Thus new superhero recruits went on to form the West Coast Infinites. Before long numerous superhero groups were formed to protect the country, the Midwest Infinites, the Pacific Northwest Infinites, the Canadian Infinites, the Quebec Infinites, the Texas Infinites, the Southern Infinites...

Meet the heroes of our story, the Minnesota Infinites. The ninth or tenth greatest team of superheroes in the country. They may not be A-listers, or B-listers, or even C-listers, but they still have days of saving the country. So long as the other superheroes are all busy. They may not get good press, or any press, and they may not have their own line of action figures or corporate sponsorships, but they are heroes who truly care about justice. Mostly. Probably...

Welcome to the Infinites, a superhero RP that is more of a comedic slice of life RP than an action story for superheroes. Players are members of the illustrious Minnesota Infinites, based in the town of Orient, Minnesota, population 2,000. Now that you're a member there's not much of a point hiding it. You're not here because you're the best and brightest. The Slipstreams and Nightshades and Atomic Avengers of the world don't end up with the Minnesota Infinites. You're not getting a comic book based on you. You don't get to be on Oprah, or even The View. No dying child wishes to see you. None the less you're here anyways. Why? Because you care about justice? Because you want to be transferred to an Infinites group with career opportunities? Because your powers are too nightmarish for the public? Because you're a genuine screw up? No matter what you're here now, and it's your job to protect the innocent people of Minnesota from evil. Because you know, every villain wants to take over Minnesota.

This RP is a farcical and comedic setting. It largely parodies more serious superhero works, and of course features characters more silly than what you'd see in most comics. In other words this is a far cry from Dark Knight or Watchmen. Still there's room for character interaction and development. The desire to be respected and appreciated, and to have a chance to move up in life, is relatable to everyone. The plight of the tenth chair violinist. Of the first day intern. Of the friend who never gets to decide where the group goes. We all know what that's like to some extent. This story is about that feeling in superheroes. While all the cool Infinites get the big league villains and the alien invasions, you're stuck with the small town traffic incidents and the 'just-as-lame' super villains no one else wants to bother fighting. A story about the less famous characters of a superhero universe.

Do you want to move up in life? Do you want to save the day and have the country worship you? Do you want your own action figure? Your own Comic Book? Your own picture on a cereal box? Your own Nobel Peace Prize? Do you want to be the hero of the story? Well everyone has to start somewhere right? Of course there's genuine evil in this otherwise colorful setting. Maybe, just maybe, the world will have to turn to the Minnesota Infinites... you know if all the cool superheroes just up and leave or something.

Rules:
    1. Fun is mandatory. If fun is not being had than please report for reassignment.
    2. Bonuses for most cliched superhero tropes stack.
    3. Comedic as this setting is, remember not to let things go past PG.
    4. No godmodding, cheating, or meta-gaming. You probably know the drill. However, due to the nature of this RP, this may be excused if the result is hilarious...
    5. Superheroes who fail to be memorable will have their title taken by a minority replacement.
    6. Profanity is not welcome. You don't see it in the comics. It won't be here either. That also goes for things that appear like profanity, including substituting a "u" for a "v", or a "u" for a "oo". It doesn't fly here. However, if you must indicate that your character uses profanity, do it how the comics do. "@&*#!" is fine.
    7. This will be more of a railroad RP than a sandbox, but there will be some sandbox elements. A sandy railroad, perhaps... The last version left a lot of characters dangling on their own, which is what I think led to its demise. This one, we're going to be more in it together. We are a team... the greatest team of lame D-level superheroes the world has ever not really known.
    8. No characters will be welcome who are too powerful. If you want your character to be powerful, you need to join another superhero RP. This is only for the lamest of the lame.
    9. Characters from the former "Infinites" thread who want to re-apply sure can. Otherwise, just type in and say you're in, and keeping the character that was already sent in earlier. If you want to change your app, this is a fine time to do it. New characters are certainly welcome too.
    10. If you apply and get accepted, but then go inactive (defined as being whatever the OP thinks is inactive), UNLESS you go inactive with permission (e.g., holiday break away from the internet), your character will be confiscated and used, regardless if it's how you prefer or not. The character becomes either an NPC or is given to another active player. IN OTHER WORDS, if you like your character, stay active.

Chapter 1 - A New Challenge



(Chapters from The Infinites - The Lamest Heroes)
Chapter 1 - The Bomb Squad and Cattle Rustlers
Chapter 2 - Big fight down in Tech Warehouse super-center.
Chapter 3 - The Schemes of Mr. Big



CAST


Accepted Active Player Characters (PCs)
PC Heroes:
  • (Hero - The Land of Golden Blobfish) Matthew Smith, aka "The PUN-isher" or "Donut-Guy" - Sometimes you wonder which is worse. His wit, or getting hit with falling anvils as a result of it.
  • (Hero - The Irish County of the Beare-Mor) Mikhail Lunden, aka Tinkerer- "Fluffy, white kittens aimed at bad guys near you!"
  • (Hero - The Last Abode of Pando) Ed and Aesculapius Johnson no aka yet - Two heads are sometimes better than one. With an alien spork to boot.
  • (Sidekick - Whalestron) Sarah Osborne, aka "You. Intern Girl". - Makes coffee in both caff and decaf. Answers the phone (for all those massive amounts of distress calls coming in... yeah, right, who am I kidding). The Go-fer but also probably has more common sense than everyone else in the Minnesota Infinite organization.
  • (Hero - The Central Shadow Nation) Eric Williams aka Fruit Bat - Glides on down in his super suit, dropping berries that act like gum, hand sanitizer, and doggie doo.
  • (Hero - The Central Shadow Nation) (random reptile noise) aka Country Crock (or "CC" for short) - Picture a walking, talking, cowboy-hat-wearing and guitar-toting reptile, who comes from the bayou, and can summon anything related to country music when he jams out. And you kind of have the idea.
  • (Hero - Zjaum) Auburn Lincoln aka Princess Goldilocks - 7'5, Bronzed skin and jet black hair. Also apparently has bladder problems.
  • (Hero - Assorted Saharan Outposts) Lilly Aberdeen aka Hypoxia - Going for the world record for how long she can hold her breath. Naturally, she ended up with the Minnesota Infinites.
  • (Hero - Zanera) Bob Jack aka Pill-OW - Conjuring up heroic, soft, fluffy pillows to save the day. Also a bit of a problem with never shutting up, and narcolepsy - if you count that as a problem. Some people do, I guess...
  • (Hero - Asterdan) Bryan Wilson aka Night Brood - How did one of the world's wealthiest individuals with some decent combat skills and gadgets end up with the Minnesota Infinites? Not even this detective can figure that one out.
  • (Hero - Mirigli) Cleo Milcox / Alma Marks Doyle aka Cinderella. By morning, she's your average girl. By noon until midnight, she is a cranky Scottish grandmother. Of course she fits in with this group.


PC Active Villains (or Anti-Heroes)
  • (Villain - Gaia Concordis) Jason Dolar aka Window. He knows his destiny and is trying to fight it. Becoming a villain to break free - which is usually the other way around of why people become villains.
  • (Villain - The Last Abode of Pando) Florida Man, many akas - The mild crime lord of Orient, Minnesota - based on real facts! As real as the newspapers get, anyways.
  • (Villain - Whalestron) Nikoli Tesolav aka Commie Bear (at least that's what I call him). Thees ees Roossian teddy bear, weeth amazing arsaynal of fineest Sovieeet weapohns aneeewayhare.
  • (Villain - Zjaum) Henry "Hot Air" Hinshaw aka "Blimp Man". Just your average, hero-turned-villain with hot or cold shoulders, who willingly lives in a hole. Oh. And finger-rockets, too!
  • (Villain - Da Klan) JJJ, or James Jimmy Jameson aka Saucy Man. "Would you like some mayo, mustard, Tabasco, or Hollandaise sauce with that? My sauces will explode in your face! Also, I have a nice set of wheels, too."
  • (Villain - Oznil Returns) Erik Schmizendorf aka Dr. Monologue. He has an entire 14 hour speech prepared to give you just one of the thousands of details about his life growing up as a makeshift scarecrow because of parental command, and with a lawsuit against him if he tries to say he will take over the Tri-State Area. Heroes, Beware!
  • (Villain - Nea Byzantia) Claude Girondelle aka Count Cappucino. With a vengeance against bad coffee and tea drinkers, too.
  • (Villain - Asterdan) The late Harold Smith aka Box Ghoul. When the dead come back to haunt the living, they usually have fantastic ghastly powers of the undead realms. This guy can affect cardboard boxes, and sometimes metal ones too...


Prominent Non-Player Characters
Prominent Non-Player Friends / Heroes (Friendly NPCS)
  • Ned Wimbly, aka Captain Calculator (power - can shoot an unlimited supply of any kind of calculators at like a normal throwing speed for an average non super person. Where do these calculators come from, you ask? From an alternate reality that is only occupied by calculators and calculator generators. He's never going to run out, in other words).
  • Coathangerman - No super powers. But he can thwack you with coathangers, and those really sting. Even the plastic ones.
  • The Teetotaler - (power - Tea Manipulation, mild. Teetotaler can take any amount of existing tea, and use it to form solid weapons. However, the size of the weapon is limited to the amount of tea that Teetotaler has access to. Teetotaler can also form other solid things from the tea, such as parking passes.)
  • Glitch- (powers: Uncontrollable Function Impairment, and controlled Stupidity Inducement with bungee-cord-rebound effect.)

Prominent Non-Player Villains (unfriendly NPCs)
  • French-Man! Turning everything into French stereotypes. Plus, robotic armor that lets him fly fast while he blasts French energy.
  • Diet Cola! When he gets angry, he fizzes.
  • The Can-Can Man! - You will dance to his tune!
  • Doctor Bureaucracy! - Wrapping people up in red tape and triplicate forms that need notarizing...
  • Ulterior Motive Man! - The villains met to have their weekly meetings in the basement of his mom's house. Where he still lives.
  • More to Come!

Prominent "We're not sure what category they go in yet" Non-Player Characters
  • Jerry - Recovering alcoholic. Meets in the Legion Hall room 1 Thursday night at 7 pm with the other Alcoholics Anonymous attendees. Passes on information from the bad guys to the Infinites.

Inactive Characters - feel free to use any below with permission from the OP
  • (Hero - Commonwealth States) Jackson Lake, aka Public Servant - "Is it getting a little hot in here, or is it just me? (Just a little bit hot, mind you). I hate my job."
  • (Hero - Thecreamof) Louisa Brooten aka Aero-Gal. It's a bird. It's a really slow plane. No, it's your friendly neighborhood gliding, levitating, and weather-predicting hero-girl.
  • (Hero - Whalestron) Jonathan Crenshaw, aka Trashman- Making Orient the cleanest town in the north.
  • (Hero - 404-Name Not Found) Liam Soothe, aka The Motivator - "You can do it! Really!" With an ever-present, evaporating megaphone...
  • (Hero - The Irish County of the Beare-Mor) Julia Bennett aka Rose - The first member of a new trial program, the Junior Infinites. Basically a 13-year old kid who can grow flowers.
  • (Villain - The Imperial Warglorian Empire) Hermann Fegelein aka "The Antic Grand Master". Watch him pull a chicken in various stages of cooking out of his pockets. And other things too.

This looks cool. I'm making an app right now.

However, I think that swearing SHOULD be allowed, as long as it is highly restricted. I don't want anyone swearing every few posts, but sometimes, swearing is good for emphasis. Like, for example... [i]You're my #$#@$#@ best friend in the whole $#@$@$@ world. I $#@$#@! love you.

If that's how you write the profanity, I have no problem. That fits in the rules.

True freedom can only be where there is no exploitation and oppression of one person by another; where there is not unemployment, and where a person is not living in fear of losing his job, his home and his bread. Only in such a society personal and any other freedom can exist for real and not on paper.” -J. V. STALIN

I was laughing hysterically at this. One small caveat - Even if Perimeter has access to nuclear weapons, he is NOT going to use said access. Nor will anyone else. Otherwise that's way too powerful for us. If you can go with this, then Perimeter is accepted.

(What are "lulz"?)

And I can get you an archenemy if you wish.

Name: Robert James
Codename:Pessismo
Age: 43
Sex: Male
Appearance: A balding, middle-aged man. He carries a perpetual frown and a sad, slumped posture, as well as a few extra pounds around his waist. Every day, he gets up and puts on the same generic white button-up shirt and the same generic khakis. Unremarkable in every way.
Bio: Robert James. A boring, ordinary name for a boring, ordinary life. He was born and raised in some generic midwest town, just too large for him to find a kindred spirit in Mellencamp and just too small for him to really care for Springsteen. He studied at his local community college, and started balding prematurely at twenty. He has never known passion, in any sense of the word. He had a girlfriend once, but that was less passion and more just because he felt like he should. It probably shouldn't have lasted very long, but she ended up pregnant and he ended up supporting a family with a generic IT job at GeneriCorp. He doesn't love her, but she's been there so long he's convinced himself he does. Every day he wakes up and dreads going to work. Every time work ends he dreads going home.
Powers: Can inflict nearby enemies with a crippling, paralyzing apathy as they desperately try to convince themselves there must be something better in life. Standing too close to him for too long will slowly cause color to fade, music to soften, and tastes and smells to dissipate. It is unknown if there is a lethal dose for this aura, but if there is it's certainly better than the alternative.



(Things in parentheses are OOC. The rest of this is IC. A form for your character to answer.)

Describe your abilities: Apathy. Crippling depression. Ennui.
Why did you become a superhero: I'm just so tired of doing the same thing day in and day out. There must be something better.
What are your goals for the future: I don't have many. I'm too busy supporting my family and trying to keep above water.
(Why is this character with the Minnesota Infinites. In other words, why do they kind of suck?): See, well, everything. He's a sad sad man with fairly weak powers and no heroic drive at all.
How would you describe your talents?: They aren't very useful. I guess it's good that I have something, but still. Even when I'm lucky enough for powers I get the short end of the stick.
(What about your character's talents make them a D-lister?) They just really aren't that great. And they're attached to this schlub.
What are your strengths?: I'm not really sure. I like to say I don't like to brag, but if we're being honest I'm just very mediocre.
What are your weaknesses?: Finding joy or motivation in life. I'm quite bad at that.
(Any other flaws? Maladjusted personality? Social issues? Unmarketable aspects?): His whole outlook on life sorta falls under all three of those categories. He doesn't have many friends, and instead of making him bitter in a way that would create a compelling antihero that just made him more apathetic towards the whole "life" thing.
Why should you if given the opportunity be allowed to advance in the Infinites?: I put my head down and work hard, day in and day out. I'm reliable, at least.
(Why does the press hate or ignore you?): Because my goodness this guy's depressing.

Can I write a civilian app for the wife as well? If it's gonna be slice-of-lifey and all that.

Codename:Pessismo
Age: 43
Sex: Male
Appearance: A balding, middle-aged man. He carries a perpetual frown and a sad, slumped posture, as well as a few extra pounds around his waist. Every day, he gets up and puts on the same generic white button-up shirt and the same generic khakis. Unremarkable in every way.
Bio: Robert James. A boring, ordinary name for a boring, ordinary life. He was born and raised in some generic midwest town, just too large for him to find a kindred spirit in Mellencamp and just too small for him to really care for Springsteen. He studied at his local community college, and started balding prematurely at twenty. He has never known passion, in any sense of the word. He had a girlfriend once, but that was less passion and more just because he felt like he should. It probably shouldn't have lasted very long, but she ended up pregnant and he ended up supporting a family with a generic IT job at GeneriCorp. He doesn't love her, but she's been there so long he's convinced himself he does. Every day he wakes up and dreads going to work. Every time work ends he dreads going home.
Powers: Can inflict nearby enemies with a crippling, paralyzing apathy as they desperately try to convince themselves there must be something better in life. Standing too close to him for too long will slowly cause color to fade, music to soften, and tastes and smells to dissipate. It is unknown if there is a lethal dose for this aura, but if there is it's certainly better than the alternative.

Man. I didn't know if I should laugh or cry reading this one. I'm accepting him. I think he has the possibility of being super-hilarious. Especially with the whole, things fading from their colors and sounds, and smells and tastes losing their smells and tastes around him.

As for the wife - You can if you wish. Or just refer to her in passing, and make us guess at what kind of woman would want to stay with a man this depressing for so long.

And watch the profanity. Welcome to the Infinites!

Sorry about the profanity, usually stuff doesn't slip through the self-censoring. I think I won't make an app for the wife, like you said. Seems like a good idea.

All new players, welcome!

Returning players previously in the Infinites' RP -
You will notice that there are going to be some changes overall. Some of the former plot may continue (or not... we'll see). In the former one, I found it difficult to keep track of all the NPCs that were running around. Not every former NPC is going to continue in the current reboot. And some that are, I may flesh out a bit differently.

For how the last plot ended (or didn't quite end, as the case may be), and where we start up, I will try to come up with a backstory that you can read if you are interested. It will probably be in one of those spoiler boxes, so it doesn't take up that much space.

What can you expect from the new reboot? More in line with the original concept. D-level heroes are going to be at the heart and center. More funny villains (yes, and even "French Man" may return! Who knows?). A plot line that has some bumps and twists in it, but one with a definite aim in mind that keeps to the genre.

Oh. And if you've read the former IC with my last comment on there, about the next meeting of the Minnesota Infinites - I wouldn't put as much stock in assuming that this is where I'm going. Better ideas have come to my attention.

Hopefully that's enough of a teaser for you. - Talc

If we already had a character in the previous RP, do we need to re-submit the AP? Can we keep said character?
I've been thinking of keeping Aero-Gal (although I'll admit she might be a bit too lame for even D-lister, but I'm willing to buff her up), but I have TONS of other characters that I could use for this.

Our nation uses roughly 50.01% NS stats, 49.99% fact books.
Political views: I guess I'm a moderate who leans strongly towards liberal? Or perhaps a liberal who leans strongly towards moderate? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Something interesting about me: I can wiggle both my ears! I can also crack/pop both my wrists @ will, but I can crack/pop my right wrist easier than my left!

You are welcome to resubmit the ap, just because it's nice to have it all in one place. (I'm still learning the ropes here. Eventually I'd like to get a cast of active characters on the original post).


Aero-Gal would definitely be welcome. Yes, she is quite lame. But you never know... Maybe this time, we'll be up on a roof somewhere and only she will be able to get down... If you wish to buff her up (a smidge), that's up to you.

Other characters you wish to submit would certainly be welcome.

Name: Matthew Smith
Codename: Stump. What do you mean? I guess I...stumped you there. Eh? Hu- OH GOD!!
Age: Uhh..u-ugh that one definitely hurt. I’m nineteen.
Sex: Three times a day. Just kidding, I only wished. Anyway, I’m a guy.
Appearance:
Image

Bio: You see, I was raised deep within this confined laboratory, never allowed to see the world outside my metal prison. I spent year after year, enduring painful tests hoping that one day I would be free. And that was when the fire nation attacked! Oh god, you should see your face, it’s priceless! Nah mate, all that stuff I said was bogus. I was raised right here in Minnesota just chilling, you know, enjoying life. What, you want more? Trust me, I’m not that interesting.
Powers: Well, whenever I tell a (bad) joke or pun, a huge metal anvil usually falls from the sky and crashes right here on the ground. Usually in front of me but eh, I’ve managed to aim it before.



(Things in parentheses are OOC. The rest of this is IC. A form for your character to answer.)

Describe your abilities: Well, I am a master fighter. Once, I was trapped in a cavern all by myself with over a 100 carnivorous guinea pigs. The battle was hard fought but I eventually arose from the ashes of my fallen prey and claimed victory over their forgotten souls. Oh, you’re serious. Well, I can cook two minute ramen in a minute and fifty nine seconds, does that count?
Why did you become a superhero: I don’t know, it seemed like a lot of fun. That and the fact that they won't hire me at Victoria's Secret.
What are your goals for the future: To be the hare- just joking there. Maybe not, you never know.
(Why is this character with the Minnesota Infinites. In other words, why do they kind of suck?): Other than the anvils, they technically don’t have any other superpowers.
How would you describe your talents?: Other than my anvil summoning jokes and amazing prepackaged cooking skills, I'd say the only thing there is to me is my incredible charm with the ladies (hint: it’s not so incredible)
(What about your character's talents make them a D-lister?) His power is restricted to anvils and as they fall from the sky, his power would be completely useless if he’s, lets say, trapped underground. And he’s just generally very vulnerable. Plus he has to be able to talk to summon them, however, if an anvil managed to hit someone, well, let's just it's going to hurt like hell.
What are your strengths?: I'm a pretty sick driver. Got the gold cup in every course on Mario Kart. Oh, and I’m quite the photographer. In what? Well, let’s just skip past that.
What are your weaknesses?: I'm pretty allergic to dieing. Like, incredibly. I mean if I died, I’d be dead you know?
(Any other flaws? Maladjusted personality? Social issues? Unmarketable aspects?): Well, he’s a pervert so he can get distracted easily. I’ll leave it at that.
Why should you if given the opportunity be allowed to advance in the Infinites?: Because like, imagine all the sick parties we'd hold.
(Why does the press hate or ignore you?): Matthew has never been seen using his powers to fight crime or any of the sort so he's never had the spotlight shone on him. And even if he did, the media would think he was boring. After all, he's not a flying hero with a flashy costume and line of action figures.

Only changed it slightly. Mainly the age and appearance but changed a few other things here and there.

I can't imagine why Victoria's Secret wouldn't hire Matthew to be one of their models. :) Glitch will be back, too. And he'll still call Matthew, "Donut-Guy." Just so you know.

Name: Jackson Lake
Codename: Public Servant
Age: 34
Sex: Male
Appearance:
Image
Bio: Jackson Lake was born in Orient, he was raised in Orient, he lives in Orient, and by Jove, he will die in Orient, too. Just like his father, and his father before him, all the way back to the 1920’s. And, like his fathers before him, Jackson works as a civil servant. He works for the Orient town hall, and manages parking violations and assorted tickets. Does he love his job? No, absolutely not. Like his fathers before him, Jackson detests what he does. Every day, people come in, complaining about their violations. Laws that Jackson has absolutely no say about. He listens to them, writes down their complaints, passes them on to some other department, and that’s how he passes the day. The only fun part of the job, Jackson has found, is the Sunday afternoon beer party with his father, uncle, and grandfather. There, they all complain about their jobs, and crack a few beers in the process. This is what Jackson has always done, and this is what he will continue to do for the rest of his life.
Powers: Slight Climate Control. Jackson can make a room he inhibits slightly hotter or slightly colder, as well as induce a nice breeze and change humidity levels. On a really hot day, he can work in a comfortably colder room. He has trouble counteracting any expensive air conditioning system, though.




Describe your abilities: “I can use the very nature of the molecules in the air to control the climate itself! Well, on small scales, anyway. It takes a lot of energy to actually make billions of molecules move a tiny bit, or slow down their moving somewhat. I can’t make it rain in the Sahara. Or in Dallas. Or in Michigan, for that matter. But I can brighten the office with cold air on a hot day, if people keep the windows closed.”
Why did you become a superhero: “I needed something to do on Thursday nights. The wife takes our daughter on swimming lessons with the car, and I work a bit too long to make it there in time. So, in order not to sit alone at home for an entire night, I decided to join the Infinites.”
What are your goals for the future: “I want to have a son, teach him the beauty of being a civil servant, and pass on the Lake Legacy to him. I might want to buy an old car, too, if I have enough savings. I want to save for my little daughter to go to college, but at this rate, I’ll be out of funds when the gets halfway through high school.”
Why is this character with the Minnesota Infinites. In other words, why do they kind of suck?: “Hey! I don’t suck! I’ll have you know, the Minneapolis Infinites considered my application. Granted, I didn’t mention the… extent of my powers. I just wrote down ‘climate control’. But their policy of not refunding traveling costs really didn’t work for me. It’s a long trip down to the city, you know! Takes a lot of gas. And I couldn’t move there, not with the money I have. So, I decided to keep it closer to home. I found the Minnesota Infinites on the fifth search page on Google.”
How would you describe your talents?: “As nuanced. The power of an artist. Those large Infinites, those ‘supers’, they can lift a car with the back of their hand. They can cast thunder from the skies or burn a city alive. That’s all dandy, but where is the art in that? No, my powers are nuanced, more suited for someone of my capacities.”
What about your character's talents make them a D-lister?: “I’m not a D-lister! Stop calling me that! I’m a C-lister for sure! A B-lister, if the winds are good. Just because my powers are nuanced doesn’t mean they aren’t as good as all those others. When Omnicron, that super-strength guy from New York, finds a room too hot. What does he do? He has to get up, walk to the window, and open it up. Or he has to put the air conditioning on. Or does he tear out a wall to bring in a comfortable breeze? I don’t think so.”
What are your strengths?: “I’m a clever guy. No, really! I’m probably the smartest guy in town. People just don’t realise it. It takes brain to complete an A7-98 Traffic form. Or to file all that paperwork with the right people. And who makes sure the bills are sent to the right people? Partially me, of course! But I’m systemically underrated. I could’ve been a manager of a department by now. They probably despise the Lake family, I can tell you that. For generations, none of us have ever climbed the ladder. But no longer. I’ll be the one who climbs up to manager, you just wait and see!”
What are your weaknesses?: “Weaknesses… My eyes are bad. Like, extremely bad. I need my glasses to see any reasonable distance. And some people have called me arrogant. Hah, it’s hard not to be arrogant if you see what kind of people come to my office every day.”
Any other flaws? Maladjusted personality? Social issues? Unmarketable aspects?: “Certainly not. I’m probably the most normal person alive in Orient. Aside for my powers, of course. But that doesn’t make me feel special. My special nature comes from my brain, not my magical powers to control the climate.”
Why should you if given the opportunity be allowed to advance in the Infinites?: “I’m a smart guy, and I have my connections with the local government. I can get things done you wouldn’t dream of. Like getting a parking permit for the inner town, on weekdays! Well, perhaps not on Monday, but I can see what I can do. I’m influential like that.”
Why does the press hate or ignore you?: “How would they know of me? I’ve never done anything remarkable. At least, not what the press would consider remarkable. Filling in a form C546/221 sub should be front page news any day. But I guess I’m part of some minority group. Shame, really. But I’m just your average Jackson. Nothing to write newspaper articles about. I wouldn’t want the publicity, anyway”
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Lack of a real name means compensation through a real face. My debt is settled

Just like his father, and his father before him, all the way back to the 1920’s. And, like his fathers before him, Jackson works as a civil servant. He works for the Orient town hall, and manages parking violations and assorted tickets. Does he love his job? No, absolutely not. Like his fathers before him, Jackson detests what he does. Every day, people come in, complaining about their violations. Laws that Jackson has absolutely no say about. He listens to them, writes down their complaints, passes them on to some other department, and that’s how he passes the day. The only fun part of the job, Jackson has found, is the Sunday afternoon beer party with his father, uncle, and grandfather. There, they all complain about their jobs, and crack a few beers in the process. This is what Jackson has always done, and this is what he will continue to do for the rest of his life.
Powers: Slight Climate Control. Jackson can make a room he inhibits slightly hotter or slightly colder, as well as induce a nice breeze and change humidity levels. On a really hot day, he can work in a comfortably colder room. He has trouble counteracting any expensive air conditioning system, though.




Describe your abilities: “I can use the very nature of the molecules in the air to control the climate itself! Well, on small scales, anyway. It takes a lot of energy to actually make billions of molecules move a tiny bit, or slow down their moving somewhat. I can’t make it rain in the Sahara. Or in Dallas. Or in Michigan, for that matter. But I can brighten the office with cold air on a hot day, if people keep the windows closed.”
Why did you become a superhero: “I needed something to do on Thursday nights. The wife takes our daughter on swimming lessons with the car, and I work a bit too long to make it there in time. So, in order not to sit alone at home for an entire night, I decided to join the Infinites.”
What are your goals for the future: “I want to have a son, teach him the beauty of being a civil servant, and pass on the Lake Legacy to him. I might want to buy an old car, too, if I have enough savings. I want to save for my little daughter to go to college, but at this rate, I’ll be out of funds when the gets halfway through high school.”
Why is this character with the Minnesota Infinites. In other words, why do they kind of suck?: “Hey! I don’t suck! I’ll have you know, the Minneapolis Infinites considered my application. Granted, I didn’t mention the… extent of my powers. I just wrote down ‘climate control’. But their policy of not refunding traveling costs really didn’t work for me. It’s a long trip down to the city, you know! Takes a lot of gas. And I couldn’t move there, not with the money I have. So, I decided to keep it closer to home. I found the Minnesota Infinites on the fifth search page on Google.”
How would you describe your talents?: “As nuanced. The power of an artist. Those large Infinites, those ‘supers’, they can lift a car with the back of their hand. They can cast thunder from the skies or burn a city alive. That’s all dandy, but where is the art in that? No, my powers are nuanced, more suited for someone of my capacities.”
What about your character's talents make them a D-lister?: “I’m not a D-lister! Stop calling me that! I’m a C-lister for sure! A B-lister, if the winds are good. Just because my powers are nuanced doesn’t mean they aren’t as good as all those others. When Omnicron, that super-strength guy from New York, finds a room too hot. What does he do? He has to get up, walk to the window, and open it up. Or he has to put the air conditioning on. Or does he tear out a wall to bring in a comfortable breeze? I don’t think so.”
What are your strengths?: “I’m a clever guy. No, really! I’m probably the smartest guy in town. People just don’t realise it. It takes brain to complete an A7-98 Traffic form. Or to file all that paperwork with the right people. And who makes sure the bills are sent to the right people? Partially me, of course! But I’m systemically underrated. I could’ve been a manager of a department by now. They probably despise the Lake family, I can tell you that. For generations, none of us have ever climbed the ladder. But no longer. I’ll be the one who climbs up to manager, you just wait and see!”
What are your weaknesses?: “Weaknesses… My eyes are bad. Like, extremely bad. I need my glasses to see any reasonable distance. And some people have called me arrogant. Hah, it’s hard not to be arrogant if you see what kind of people come to my office every day.”
Any other flaws? Maladjusted personality? Social issues? Unmarketable aspects?: “Certainly not. I’m probably the most normal person alive in Orient. Aside for my powers, of course. But that doesn’t make me feel special. My special nature comes from my brain, not my magical powers to control the climate.”
Why should you if given the opportunity be allowed to advance in the Infinites?: “I’m a smart guy, and I have my connections with the local government. I can get things done you wouldn’t dream of. Like getting a parking permit for the inner town, on weekdays! Well, perhaps not on Monday, but I can see what I can do. I’m influential like that.”
Why does the press hate or ignore you?: “How would they know of me? I’ve never done anything remarkable. At least, not what the press would consider remarkable. Filling in a form C546/221 sub should be front page news any day. But I guess I’m part of some minority group. Shame, really. But I’m just your average Jackson. Nothing to write newspaper articles about. I wouldn’t want the publicity, anyway”



Oh, man! Ha! Love the picture, love the write-up, Jackson Lake is definitely accepted.

Awake in Prefeton - A superhero story about school students discovering they have powers. More on character then on fights, which is rare.

Slate - A multi-verse RP with an eerie feel that just keeps getting better. I play a grumpy doctor character and a leprechaun.

I'm planning on giving Jackson an arch-enemy. Well, a one-sided arch enemy, because he would not know Jackson exists. A local entrepreneur, who sells air conditioning with a remote control.
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Lack of a real name means compensation through a real face. My debt is settled

(I've never done an RP on NS before except for sports, but this looks really fun . . . how much commitment and experience would you like?)
