Our Teenage Heroes

Welcome everyone! Thanks for joining in. Let's meet our heroes, shall we? Post below to introduce your character. You can copy/paste your application or set up your character sheet. Or both!

Each of your posts in the story thread needs a stat block, and this is a good place to have it ready for copy/paste purposes. You are free to make your own design. It just needs to contain the appropriate information: your hero name, playbook name, labels, current conditions, and influences.

Below is a basic Character Sheet and a Stat Block. Feel free to quote this post to get at the text so you can edit and make them your own. Or make your own from scratch. I won't be offended.


Imagine reality creatively

Dating briar, the bestest girlfriend ever! Might be a little distracted sometimes. :P PM me if I have not posted in a game with you this week or if you need anything!

Description A 16 year old, 6', 180lbs Armenian male with brown eyes and fairly short brown hair. When not in costume, he tends to dress in worn but clean and neat T-shirts and jeans.

Goals Arvan is a good guy and wants to use his powers to help people. While he isn't above using his speed when he is behind on a delivery, he would never use it to steal or hurt people, there are to many people who depend on him to do that sort of thing. He realizes that he is in over his head, and he has been in Helcyon City long enough to know that the criminals are always happy enough to take advantage of that. So, he's glad that he has found a group of friends to help him deal with all these changes to his life

Background At thirteen, Arvan became the man of his family. That was the year that his father Nishan died of lung cancer, leaving his mother Lucine to care for him and his four siblings all on her own. Between three part time jobs, she was able to keep a roof over their heads and food in their bellies, but not much more. Lucine mostly just made it home to sleep between shifts, so most of the household duties fell to Arvan and his 10 year old sister Carine as well as caring for their 5 year old twin sisters Perouze and Ziazan. Things changed a little when Arvan turned 15 and managed to land a job doing moped deliveries for a neighborhood pizza shop, Checkerboard Pizza, which allowed his mother to be home slightly more, but put more of a burden on Carine. He was just returning form one of his deliveries when his life changed again.
This time it was because as her rounded a corner, a shining Blue/white portal opened up infront of him and an elderly man in a similarly glowing body suit and wearing a mask, came tottering out of it. Arvan didn't have time to swerve and crashed strait into the man who crumpled. Arvan jumped off his moped and rushed over to see if the man was okay and was surprised to see someone who looked quite a bit like pictures of his grandfather lying on the side of the road. Arvan knelled down to help the old man and heard him whisper one word "Accelerate" before disappearing in a blue/white haze. The only thing left was the man's mask lying on the ground in front of Arvan. Confused, he picked up the scrap of cloth and repeated the word. Much to his surprise, he felt the mask tremble and then a surge of power flooded through Arvan. Before he realized what had happened, the young man was zooming down the street faster than he had ever moved before. At one point he even found himself running up the side of a building, as if it were a leisurely stroll. Since then, he has tried to keep his powers a secret and use them to help protect the neighborhood, but he can't help wondering who the strange man was and what the cost will be for his abilities.

• I really like ____.
• I dislike _____.
Wish I could be:
When you comfort or support someone, if you tell them what you most envy about them, you can roll + Freak instead of + Mundane.

I am not my body:
When you take a powerful physical blow, you may roll as if you had two fewer conditions marked. If you do, on a 10+ you must choose to lose control of yourself in a terrible way.

Not human enough:
When you directly engage a threat in a terrifying fashion, mark a condition to choose an additional option, even on a miss.





I have taken the oath of Sangus.
Now playing: Secrets Beyond Sigil and Becoming a Hero
