    Like I said, it's an interesting idea, but I don't think too many people will go for it.

    Well, haven't been here in a while. Er, this is an idea that was lost somewhere in my drawers that I happened to find. It was incomplete, so I decided to try and finish it (on my computer so that I wouldn't lose it), and it came out like this...

        Spoiler:- ESpERs:


    That's as far as I got. I'm actually planning to make it into some sort of Academy based where the player is a student or faculty and just try to get through life with the occasional odd job for either student or faculty or both and the few emergencies involving monster (grotesque, dangerous beasts mutated by bio-weapons) here and there. Well, it's a work in porgress. Just wanted to see what people thought of it.

    Oh, and criticism would help, as well as questions so that I can improve on this plot. I know I'm missing one thing or other, but I can't seem to grasp it...
    There are stories made from the imagination. There are stories born from experience.
    There are stories told because of a need to be filled. There are stories that simply need to be told.
    This is one of them.

    That sounds awesome.
    I mean it.
    Perhaps, in the RPG, there will be a class where they explain the affinity types. I found it a little hard to digest it all when I read it, so i had to rea it two times.
    From what I can gather, you can use the ESpERs to battle one another, hence the affinities. Would it be common to battle each other?
    And do the beasts have affinities too? And would they keep the names of the creature they were mutated from? I mean, say there's a tiger-like thing that had eight legs instead of four and had longer fangs. It was mutated from a tiger. Would they call it a tsaber toothed spider-tiger or something? Or just a tiger?
    I have no idea why I asked that. I was curious.

    Well, This Idea has been floating around my head for a couple days. I wrote up a quick plot and I wanted to see what you all think of it.



    A man, about 19 years old, was standing in front of a wall. A gigantic, white, wall. To others this might seem like an obstacle, but to him, this was a canvas. He flashed his head to the left, and then the right. He slid his fingers down and gripped the can he had been carrying. He brought it up as a smile crept onto his face, and shook the bottle. Once again he flashed his head back and forth, and then pushed down on the top nozzle of the bottle, releasing the paint onto the blank wall. The hissing was a symphony to his ears as he swept it in a long arc, creating a red stripe on the wall. His hands were trembling; it had been so long since he had created graffiti. His other hand reached down, grabbing another bottle, he shook it up as well and began streaking it across the wall. He breathed in the fumes; it carried him away into a land of tranquility. Streaking back and forth with his two cans, he kept on making the streaks larger and larger. However, he had the forgotten the number one rule of creating graffiti. Don’t. Get. Caught. A flash of grey rocketed at his skull with perfect accuracy. The man felt the grey enter his head as he fell down on the ground. His breathing was heavy, his eyes flitting back and forth. How did he get caught? It didn’t matter, because he had. That was it. He could feel the grey pained move down his body, finally reaching his heart. The pained infected his heart, setting up a work station. It then pumped more of the dark fluid through his body. His skin turned ghost white, his eyes turned black and his stomach bulged up. His body swelled up, more, and more, until the skin on his body was stretched tight. Finally, it exploded, spreading more of the grey fluid everywhere. There was just enough fluid to cover up the graphic he had been spray painting.
    Free the paints.

    The paints. They were some of the most amazing artists of all time. Their creations would expand the minds of others and send ripples of revolution throughout the world. However, the paints often would spread anti-government messages. People began to take them to heart as the communities were revolting. The governments of the world knew that to stop these revolutions, the paints would need to be disabled. Many governments tried, but most collapsed under its own people. However, one was able to finally gather up the paints, and put them in prison. Without the paints, the government's citiy was free to expand. There now are only a few small pockets of resistance left in the one giant city.

    Free the paints.
    The crowds would chant, rallying in the grey streets. Surrounded by grey buildings and grey skies. They wore colorful clothes, standing out against the dreary city’s backdrop. Some carried signs, some carried megaphones and some just drug paintbrushes behind them, leaving colorful streaks. A testament to the areas where they had gone. The city’s Mayor knew what to do. Wherever the protesters went they left colorful graffiti. In order to stifle the message of the free the paints protesters, he would have to find a way to cover up their graffiti in fast and efficent ways. The pained was born. Pained was a dark version of the paint used by the protesters. It was usually colored grey and had a think prescence to it. The mayor launched his assault on the graffiti, having the whole city cleared of paint. However, as the Mayor used the pained, he discovered something unique. If pained came in contact with a human it would travel to the human’s heart. Once there it would create more pained and spread it throughout the body. The human would eventually explode, often setting off chain reactions. The Mayor’s intentions took a turn for the worse as world domination flashed into his mind.

    Now, in creativity’s darkest hour, a new set of paints have arisen. These new paints have mastered their artistry even more, manipulating their graffiti to fight for them. The second generation of paints has risen, and it is time for rebellion.
    So you would play as one of the new paints. Players would lead strikes into the city, spreading their graffiti. Enemies will mostly be the city police, carrying pained ball guns. This idea is still in it's early stages, so CC would help.
    Genre would be kind of serious, with a little humor here and there.
    SUs are pretty basic.
    Name/Nickname: Yep.
    Gender: Yeah.
    Age: 14-50 anything over or under is pushing it.
    Appearenceark greys if your a pained, vibrant colors if your a paint.

    Art: This determines the effect of your paint. look below.

    Types of Art. (Classes)
    Collage: Paints who use this type of art take bits and pieces of surroundding colors to attack the enemy. Some of their abilities include "Mortar Paint" and "Color twist". Often use brushes to take colors off of surfaces and combine them, although other way sof combining are possible.

    These are Paints, however they use pencils instead of paint. They have to concentrate before they use their attacks, but they are very strong. "Black Hole" and "Doom Suspension" are a couple. Sketch paints use pencils, but can also carry small knives.
    Lv.1: Concentrate ability is unlocked. (Sketch Paints need to use this ability once before any move of their is used)
    Lv.2: (New abilities unlocked)

    Heh, well, like I said, there are still a lot of things that I need to work on. Trying to expand them but keep them simple is not my specialty (something I have to deal with, since too much reading expanded my vocabulary so much that I tend to forget others). There will be other classes, so yes, these will be explained. I'm hoping to make them all simpler, since there are still some sections I'm working on.
    And yes, ESpERs can be used to battle. Sometimes to settle arguments between students, to train students to fight against beasts and corrupted Candidates. Most fights would only occur in training, whether through virtual means or by fighting one of the faculty. It is, as a class, a requirement for all students. On a random note, ESpERs can also be used for daily life. For some, it's useful to be able to call upon a flaming pan whenever your hungry. They come in all shapes and sizes, after all.
    As for the beasts, they don't carry affinities. And their names...er, I haven't really thought about it. Considering that beast mutations can come from the same species, then yes, they might as well have thier own names...IF they already been seen and recorded. And only if the names aren't a mouthful...>.>... Remember, most of the world has been deemed too dangerous, so there are many unknowns here and there.

    ---

    Vibrato, it's actually quite interesting. It reminds me of a movie I watched, though I can't remember the name. Any connection? Well, it doesn't really matter. Heh. Some questions, though.
    Where did they get the paints in the first place, if they aren't allowed? Is it some sort of mineral? And is everything that's not been, er, "painted" black, white or a variation of the two (gray)? And if so, how'd they do it? Just by painting (is that right? Or is it another word?) everything like that?
    Oh, and are their weapons only limited to art tools? Well, I see knives, but how would that in art? Does paint (the color) do anything to the pained? In fact, what happens when paint and pained mix?
    My last question is how the level system works? Do they just know it somehow? Or will you (or someone else) tell us that we've leveled up, so to speak? And maybe you'll need to explain on their techniques / abilities, since I have no idea what "Psychological Warfare" and "Black Hole" are...>.>.

    It has a lot of potential to become a good rpg. Especially if you work on it long enough.
    There are stories made from the imagination. There are stories born from experience.
    There are stories told because of a need to be filled. There are stories that simply need to be told.

    I have revised the whole thing up to a point where most of those questions could be answered.
    Nhajia was an amazing planet. A planet full of hopeful artists who lived peacefully side by side with each other. Artists who wanted nothing more than to just paint and live. No one took to much, no one got to little. The perfect planet. Until the Smiths arrived. The Smiths were a small race that lived on the far side of the planet. Everything in the Smiths territory had become dull and grey. The flowers had stopped blooming, the sun had stopped shining. Black smog poured out of the Smiths homes and fires rose out of large smokestacks. The residents lived almost exclusively in ghettos and slums. The only ones who were happy were the ones who had helped create the terrible conditions. They lived in Mansions and drunk wine and ate all day long. The Artists, seeing how terrible the conditions had become for the people of the Smiths territory, decided to try and rescue them. The Artists used their powers to try and take down the smiths, but it was a futile effort. The Smiths used gigantic metallic beasts to stop the artists. Once the Artists fell back, war was declared on the rest of planet Nhajia by the Smiths. It didn’t take long for them to corrupt the rest of the planet. The Smiths then took the entire planet Nhajia and created one massive City out of it. The city was painted in all black and white, in a hope to make the people forget about creativity and hope. The ghettos grew larger everyday. The smog thickened every night. Soon Nhajia would simply rot away.

    A man, about 19 years old, was standing in front of a wall. A gigantic, white, wall. Now to others this might seem like an obstacle, but to him, this was a canvas. He flashed his head to the left, and then the right. He slid his fingers down and gripped the can he had been carrying. He brought it up as a smile crept onto his face, and shook the bottle. Once again he flashed his head back and forth, and then pushed down on the top nozzle of the bottle, releasing the paint onto the blank wall. The hissing was a symphony to his ears as he swept it in a long arc, creating a red stripe on the wall. His hands were trembling; it had been so long since he had created graffiti. His other hand reached down, grabbing another bottle, he shook it up as well and began streaking it across the wall. He breathed in the fumes; it carried him away into a land of tranquility. Streaking back and forth with his two cans, he kept on making the streaks larger and larger. However, he had the forgotten the number one rule of creating graffiti. Don’t. Get. Caught. A flash of grey rocketed at his skull with perfect accuracy. The man felt the grey enter his head as he fell down on the ground. His breathing was heavy, his eyes flitting back and forth. How did he get caught? The city must have been tightening up on security cameras. That was it. He could feel the grey pained move down his body, finally reaching his heart. The pained infected his heart, setting up a work station. It then pumped more of the dark fluid through his body. His skin turned ghost white, his eyes turned black and his stomach bulged up. His body swelled up, more, and more, until the skin on his body was stretched tight. Finally, it exploded, spreading more of the grey fluid everywhere. There was just enough fluid to cover up the graphic he had been spray painting.
    We are the Revs.

    The Revs. They are amazing humans. They can see the big picture with perfect clarity. When the Revs first appeared, the government of the city hardly noticed. But as time went on, more and more Revs were showing up. It wouldn’t be long before the Revs would lead a full attack on the city. The Mayor of the city was John Smith. He viewed all creativity as a waste of energy. When Mr. Smith saw the Revs begin to swell in number, he decided to take action. Mr. Smith was a genius when it came to warfare, he had created many different weapons to use against his foes. This was how he got into his position, by destroying anything that was different from him. Mr. Smith eventually invented a new type of weapon. The pained. The pained was a special fluid that would attack a persons heart using it to pump more of itself into the entire body, eventually causing the victim to explode.
    Mr. Smith smiled at his new invention.
    “Time to bring the hammer down on those damned hippies.”
    I've Revised the plot. The classes are now not confined to only artists, intead they are called REVS short for revolutionaries.

    I've revised the classes and added a new class. Activist.

    Appearance: 6 sentences
    History:7 sentences

(Activists would need their megaphone, mosaics would need there brush.) When you turn level 3 you are allowed to carry a secondary weapon: Swords, Shields, even bow and arrows are allowed. You can use these weapons to expand your abilities even more.
    Abstracts riding a buddy with a sword dipped in paint anybody?

    Rev: Your class.

    Types of Rev. (Classes)


    Mosaic: Revs who use this type of art take bits and pieces of surrounding colors to attack the enemy. Some of their abilities include "Mortar Paint" and "Color twist". Often use brushes to take colors off of surfaces and combine them, although other ways of combining are possible.
