Legacy of Requiem - The New Leaguers


 

 


Prologue

On this Earth, many things have happened, to the World's first Superhero, called Captain Shad, to an Arrogant Billionaire Assassin turned a Hero Bruce Morgan and to a Mighty Being called Magnus and his extraterrestrial homeworld, which was far away from Earth. One could say that this one has experienced quite enough, to the discovery of the Cosmic Twelve Beings called the Vestals and the Mad Vestal called Darkseid with his Kaethrani as an army and that other life forms exist on different planets. It would seem that Earth was no longer alone in the Universe so from that discovery, everything changed...

These powered individuals would form a group called, the Destiny League. Which was once an idea to see if the world could bring powerful individuals into a team, so that they could fight the dangerous battles, that the humans never could. It was indeed a success but these Heroes did not know that they would cause other powerful beings to take an interest on the planet Earth, for Darkseid, the true enemy of Life, wanted to wipe out the entire Universe off of its life. 

He almost succeeded, for the half human and half vestal called Scar, the apparently chosen champion of the Vestals would stop him, which would only cause for the life in the universe to be only half wiped out. As the three long years would pass, the heroes would grief over their total failure and the ones that they have lost. But they were not without hope, because of Bruce's intellect they would discover the ability to travel through back in time, to collect the powerful Crystals, which was a device which gave the Vestals incredible power, they would collect them and come back in the present to undo what Darkseid did.

But Darkseid was no fool, for he discovered the attempt to undo what he has done, because of Scar using the Crystals undoing what Darkseid did, they would then have the longest battle in history. The battle was indeed a long one and hard fought one at that, but the heroes would win, because Scar sacrificed himself and used the Crystals and kill Darkseid and unfortunately because not even Scar could use the unlimited and limitless power twice, which created the Universe, only Darkseid could have but that extracted a very heavy toll. Scar would die a noble death, his sacrifice would not be in vain, the same would go for the rest of the other fallen heroes....this was the story of Infinity Requiem but now a new one beginnings...

 


Rules

 

-No killing/seriously maiming other characters without player consent.

-No metagaming or godmoding.

-No auto-hitting; no auto-dodging, keep it real to some extent.

-Please keep characters balanced, and avoid creating any Mary Sues. You can have a strong/powerful character, but they still need limits, flaws, and weaknesses.

-While Players are not limited at how many characters one can have. I prefer if you have two-three characters and can play them well, instead of having five of them and are not fully fleshed out, so please keep in mind Quality over Quantity. 

-Please try to keep your character sheets up-to-date over the course of the game. While the Character Sheets on here are not a must, I prefer if you at least did a quick one so that I can get the feeling to see what the character is, what can it do and so on. It can be also very detailed but it doesn't need to, just tell the important stuff if you don't want to take your time.

-While Superheroes are needed in this setting, I don't force you to make them be paragons of virtue and morality, but some good hero characters are needed for this story as well, so please keep the balance between Villains and Heroes, I don't want to see that there are too many Villains and no Heroes to combat them or wise versa. You can play as Hero, Anti-Hero, Villain, Anti-Villain and other affiliations.

-OOC discussion will be kept civil and respectful, both in the RP and in the PM. I will not tolerate name-calling, insults, harassment, or anything else of the kind.

-While it does not have to be totally PG-13, please keep it clean, no explicit content and excessive Adult themes, while your characters can swear, don't make it too excessive, keep it balanced and please keep it clean. If you want to have a romance, again doesn't need to follow the PG-13 Rule but it does not have to be explicit content like we are in a Pornographic Setting, so keep it to some extent clean and viewer friendly.

-Please refrain from making OOC-only posts in the RP.

-Other standard Valucre Rules.

-Failure to abide by these rules can result in your removal from Legacy of Requiem - The New Leaguers.


Information

Now there are some things, I want to mention before we can get started. This RP tells a story, while you are free to roam around and create some side plots which can also be significant to the plot which drives this story. You can't just do whatever you want, kill my characters or something like that. You are free to roam around, but you wouldn't get to destroy planets or something on a planetary level, you must first talk with me to see if I agree with you and to see if it does fit in my story...which I can already say it won't happen, this Earth will not live another big fight which could possibly end the universe, because the world now needs to grow accustomed with the new heroes, which is you, the player so till then, there wouldn't be that kind of scale of battle, for the time being.

Also, there are some races in my universe, for example, the Cosmic Beings which are the Vestals and live in a different reality called Vestalia, but sadly you won't get to play them because they are freaking powerful, you can interact with them but battling against them won't bring you anywhere because they are powerful and basically they have plot armor, and there will never be another Mad Vestal, Darkseid was the only one and now he is dead, thankfully.

The Kaethrani, are energy beings with control over energy manipulation, so it means that they are killable but it is really hard to do so and they have no home planet they roam the galaxy and when they grow tired they go in their pocket dimension which is a place for them to rest. So I don't recommend doing one of them if so maybe a downgraded version of the real thing because these dudes can destroy solar systems if they want to. And they are basically viewed as evil monsters so yeah not good to get things started.

There are also Devine Beings, which are practically what the Asgardians are, that's what Magnus is. The differences are that they can have wings, interact with humans, live on planet earth and do not have a shady past. I don't have anything on you doing a Devine Being character, also known: Angel, Angelic Being. But I'd like if you would talk with me first to come to an agreement and see where this might lead because there is this Homeworld called Zuerus, which is a huge planet, it's earth 15 times the size so yeah. And there is this king called Allbeing Omen who is the father of Magnus.

There are also meta-humans, of course, you can play them since they are not that powerful but I do recommend to keep them balanced and not too op. There is also a bit of John Wick/Assassin's Creed references around here, but I am not looking for that, for if I would have, I wouldn't call this a Superhero RP, but if you want to play as one, let me firstly know and we'll see what we can figure out.

So you have a lot of room to experiment with, create any character you want, except for the Vestals and Kaethrani, because come on, no one likes battling against powerful beings which can take supernovas any day of the week. So you are free to experiment just let me know what kind of character that is, send me the link of the character sheet, again it does not need to be overly detailed but the most important stuff must be there so I know what characters you are playing and so that the other players will know too.

Also, I have my share bit of characters, so I'll be sure to do my character sheets so that you may get the idea who they are, what have they done, what can they do, personal stuff about them and so on. And if you have any questions about the Homeworld called Zuerus and anything really, ask me in the OOC Thread and I'll gladly to respond to you. Also, the story takes place in America, and some heroes may live in different cities but their DL Tower would be located in New York.

If you want to sign up your characters with a link to your sheets, here it is the link where you can tag me and post them so that I may take a look at them: 

 

 

 


The Story

It is the year 2040, for the past decade the world has changed, technology has evolved beyond our expectations but the Cities still remain normal, there are no over the top cities, it mainly remained the same over the years but technology has improved significantly, it surely did not stay the same after the Cataclysm which wiped out half of the Universe's life because of Darkseid, but because of his death alongside Earth's Greatest Protector Scar, everything returned to normal. At least, so it would seem because some of the heroes have fallen in battle and died and others have retired and now the people of Earth are still trying to recover after the past three years since they won the battle against Darkseid, the World was not in chaos but it was in dire need of new heroes, to protect them and save them when need be.

The Fallen Leaguers are: Scar, Bambu, Voltex, and Logan.

The Retired Leaguers are: Shad, Reyes, Jade, Katrina, Falcon, Mike, Vience, James and John.

The Remaining Leaguers: are: Bruce, Magnus, Spider-Man, Jack, Nathan, and Doctor Mercy

Earth has lost some of its protectors, be it retired or by death. But fear not, because Bruce now the leader of the Destiny League and the others would guide you the player through this story. They will be there for you and serve as a mentor figure, it was time for the New Leaguers to appear to take the place of the old ones so that they one day could rest on a grateful planet, but the real question is, are you ready to take that kind of responsibility? what are you prepared to do? will you be a Villain? Hero? something in between? one which only fights for himself? it was time to figure those questions out...

The beautiful sun will rise as morning came, the sun's light would illuminate the city bringing about the beauty out of it. As the City slowly but surely became alive as people went about going to work and other things which normal humans would do.

Somewhere in New York, there was this big mansion, its structure was beautiful handly made and it also had a beautiful large garden with green bushes and two threes. The Mansion indeed had a futuristic look to it, it was mostly thanks to Bruce, he always wanted something like that. 

Inside the Mansion, there was this expensive decorative hallway which leads into many rooms, while the Mansion wasn't that big, it was big enough not to make everyone be jealous for not having enough money to own something like that, the curtains were red and the interior design was an oak wood built.

The six-year-old twins, Logan and Sophia still slept in their rooms, but eventually as he pans into the two lovers room. Bruce would open his eyes as he breathes in deeply and exhales the air out of his nose as Katrina still slept on his shoulder with her right hand on it. He smiles as he gently rubs the back of her head, curling her hair while he was at it, she would smile at the gesture as her eye lits would slowly open.

"Good Morning." Katrina softly replied. 

"Good Morning to you too," Bruce responded, with a soft tone.

Katrina would rub her cheek on his chest as she for a moment closed her eyes and opened them back up. "Are the kids up?" she asks.

"Nope," he said. "You know how I can tell?" he asks.

"How?" Katrina said, smiling.

His lips would escape into a smirk. "Because there is no noise," he answered, he knew the joke was silly but he laughed.

Katrina would hear his leaf from beneath his chest coming out of his throat, she would laugh a little too. "Well, who knew you were such a noise kid back then." she teased.

"Yeah, pin it on me, of course," he said, chuckling a bit. "Not because of me, we always have the pancakes dilemma," he adds.

Katrina grins as she would move her head, slightly moving it towards his shoulder as she looked at him. "True, but the waffles aren't from me either."

He sighs shaking his head lightly. "You love keeping this up, don't you?" he asked.

She would giggle as she wrapped her left arm around his torso, giving him a light kiss on his cheek. "Yup, I do." she giggled again.  

Bruce nods, closing his eyes. "Let's enjoy this until the kids wake up and start making this house into a noisy one." 

Katrina chuckled. "Yeah, let's.." she said, closing her eyes, as they would slowly fall asleep for a bit, they needed it. Being parents to one kid is hard, but two? and noisy ones at that, it was a challenge in itself. 


A loudly. "Woooohooooo!" would be heard as Spider-Man would swing through the City blocks, he enjoyed the racing mornings. "The air, the feels!" he said.

"And it is boooooring." Impulse the symbiote and his best friend answered. 

"C' mon I know ya like 'em," Connor said.

Impulse would sigh, he couldn't deny that he at least enjoyed the breeze, it was something to get back into the world. As for the last events quite truly almost destroy it.  "Alright," he said.  "I do like it, but just a little.

"Hey man, that's fine by me," Connor said, swinging by through the New York City blocks. "Hmm, I wonder if we could spot Bruce's mansion."

Though the sun gave the land below a steady warmth, the early morning breeze felt cold against Zane's light beige skin. It was cool enough for him to see his breath exit his mouth and disperse like fog. The citizens within the city already walked to and fro to tend to their early morning routines. It didn't matter how early or how late it was, cars normally covered the streets. Everything, everyone came across as moving faster than he was. Their steps were carried at a quick and steady pace. The speed of the vehicles passing appeared to exceed the limit printed on the signs posted at every block. 

 

There they were, moving so swiftly, while the man's steps kept at a laggard pace. As the breeze shifted, he brought up the long collar of his black coat to his chin. He hated wandering the streets, hated staying up in the late hours of the night with hardly any time for rest. His eyes set weary, and his physical state fatigued, he entered a 24-hour drugstore to buy something to help keep him awake. The electronic jingle of the door's bell rang as he entered, and he groggily brought himself toward the refrigerator section. 

Are the labels blurring? His palm rubbed his eyes as if this would help them come to focus. He opened the door and grabbed himself a nicely carbonated energy drink.

As Zane entered he was greeted by kind man, around about 1.70m with black curly short hair, but his front hair gave out and had short mustaches and brown eyes with a chubbier form. "What can I get for you?" he politely asked, waiting for him to come to the counter section.

@EtherealWings


Meanwhile, in the Homeworld of Zuerus, the people of Zuerus would go about doing their daily things for they as well needed to maintain the Cities alive with work. The sun shined brightly at them illuminating the City and its structures giving it a welcoming warmth.

243580-digital_art-lake-castle-city-fant

While these Colossal structures didn't serve as an entire huge city on planet Zuerus, it served as the home of the king, Allbeing Omen, King to Zuerus and Father to Magnus, would always be the first to wake up as he stood in his Throne room, but he did not sit on it, he was outside the balcony, enjoying the view that his people provided...it was beautiful. 

From the skies came Magnus landing on the ground with his axe called Chaosbreaker "Good Morning Father." he greets, walking towards his right side.

"Morning my Son." Omen greeted him back, smiling. "Ah, look at this, how long we have been longing for this...home." he looks at him.

Magnus nods, as his lips would form into a smile as well. "Indeed, but I cannot help but wonder what is next?" he asked. "How certain are we that Darkseid wasn't just a pawn, wasn't just the beginning. Earth's vulnerable without Scar."

"My Son, I believe the one called, Bruce Morgan, has everything under control." Omen said. "He may be the best choice, after all, he did make that Mad Vestal bleed." 

"But I almost killed him." Magnus states.

"Yes, my Son." Omen would place his left hand on his son's right shoulder. "No one doubts your strength, just you need to protect more than just Earth there are other planets as well which need protecting. The Vestals can't interfere much so it is up to us to make that balance happen. " he would look at the view now, his hand slipping off of his shoulder.

"Maybe I should take your bloody advice for once," he said as he made the axe disappear. "And rest while we are at it." he walked, placing his hands on the balcony fence, looking at the people and all that surrounded them, the water walls, the trees, the beautifully made golden, wood, stone houses, hopefully, the peace between all planets will last...

The black haired man turned as he was spoken to and he approached thr counter. 

"Just this. Thanks," Zane mumbled and looked for the money to pay him within his pockets. Where'd he put his wallet? 

 

It did not take long for the tired man to realize he already had set it out on the counter with his drink. He picked it up and handed the man behind the counter what was due.

Zane nodded, opening the can and taking a drink as he exited the shop. Once outside, he noticed a few figures swinging above. They looked so small, like bugs considering they were up so high. What more was there for them to save? The world had its catastrophic event already. Though, if a villain were smart, now would be a good time to strike. The city is weak and a few of the buildings are still being rebuilt after the last encounter with such events. He took another gulp of his drink, and allowed himself to sit on an old steel bench outside of the shop.

As Zane sat down on an old steel bench, he could notice that all over the big screens there was news after news. There was this young, blue-eyed, blond lady talking about the events, specifically about the death of Scar, showing a picture off of him, he truly did not look like a regular human being a half human and half vestal, making him a Proto-Vestal could be noticed. 

After that a recorded video came up, it was Bruce talking with the president and the other government leaders all well dressed for the occasion. "Ladies and Gentleman, I don't think we need to go back and say that the past ten years we wouldn't even think about superheroes, everyone did what they had to do and so on," Bruce spoke to the leaders. "Then came Shad, me and the big guy which fell out of the sky and then the world got even weirder." 

"That's all round and good, Mr.Morgan but the Destiny League has had some problems, first was the accords which we would talk about that shortly." the President said.

"No, you won't," Bruce responded. "Because you need us, and it was clearly stated why I mean the decimation of half of the universe is not enough for you to prove that you need us, then, I don't know anymore."

 "I never said we won't allow you to continue on but you will have some restrictions, you are not above the law." the President states. "But we never said we aren't glad for what you all did. But the Destiny League is dead some died and the others have retired, what happened to Falcon wasn't he supposed to be the next Captain Shad?" he asked. 

"Yeah about that.." he said, covering his face with his mouth, leaning back on the chair.

"If any question in this subject is more important than anything is, who will be Earth's next Protector?" the President asked, to which Bruce took a moment and he stood up, clearly having enough of this conversation.

"I am," he said, showing the peace sign hand to the President as the paparazzi would stand up, taking photos of him as the crowd gushed, and he walks away from the interview, it was clearly an old interview, the people are just starting to grow on the idea that Scar isn't any more there to protect us, the Destiny League is in pieces and that Bruce is taking everything on his shoulders to spin the World back on track.

Zane's displeasure at the conversation sparked an immediate irritated grunt. He isn't fond of Bruce or his friends. Sure, he's thankful the city wasn't overrun by insane creatures, those monsters that sought to destroy everything he had left. 

He gulped the rest of his can and crushed it, tossing the can into the garbage bin next to him.

 

He lowered his head into his palms, shaking his head as his body hunched forward. As he peered at his feet, he studied the laces of his shoes.

Zane narrowed his eyes at the exclamation. How could Spider-Man be celebrating when even his own faith had lessened? 

 

Within the loud expression of enjoyment, he picked up a faint cry... one that demanded help as a man fought a woman at a car recharging station parking lot to take her vehicle. He looked up quickly, trying to make out where the noise had emanated from. He saw the struggle from across the street and immediately ran forward, causing the zooming car drivers to honk and question what the heck he was doing putting his life in danger. He made it unscathed to the other side, calling out to the theif. "Hey! Get away from her!" 

 

The car thief's eyes turned to see who challenged him. Zane approached, and though tired, immediately threatened the man by throwing a quick punch. The two started a fight, and the woman stepped back fearful. She moved backward, stumbling away to the hood of her car.

"Connor I think you may want to look back." Impulse said.

"Hmm, what is it?" he asked, looking back seeing the two men fighting and the woman trying to get away, he swings back and lands on the thief's car crouching.  He fires a web at the thief's back and pulls him away. "Hey what are you two here doing?" he asked. "Ducking it out while this woman is scared for her life?"

"Trust me, I know you did," Spider-Man said, shooting a web towards the thief's mouth as he shots a big web to wrap around his body. He would get off and stand on the ground, placing his hand on the thief's shoulder.

"If you want you can come with me and deliver him to the police since I don't want to take all the credit," he said. "I just swung by and this caught my attention, clearly three years have been too long for the criminals."

The young woman walked up to them slowly. "Thank you...." Her expression looked frazzled. 

 

"Don't mention it," Zane crossed his arms. "You going to be okay?"

"Yeah," she shook her head. "Yeah, I think so..."

 

Zane glanced over to the thief. If they hadn't stepped in, he just might have gone too far. A few others gathered to watch the excitement, and more approached as their heroes entered the scene.
