Quantum Enhancement - Official Thread

Life was once normal for all who lived in and around the city of Solare, but one day, that all changed. What caused the storm, no one could be certain. A solar flare during a solar eclipse, some unintended result of the experiment occurring within the lab at the center of the city at that time, or perhaps the rare comet that passed by the earth at that very time had something to do with what happened. Whatever it was, there was no way anyone could have prepared for what was to come. The skies turned to unnatural shades of purple and green, great bolts of lightning struck, rain poured, and the wind blew through the city, but just as quickly as the unnatural storm came on, it dissipated, just as the eclipse was over. Many were injured, reported as missing, or even killed, but the greatest impact of the event, which would later be known as the cataclysm, wasn’t immediate.

Soon after the cataclysm, individuals with unnatural abilities began to emerge. Enhanced speed, super strength, and manipulation of electricity, just to name a few. As these enhanced individuals began to appear, crime rates rose, but with criminals came those who wanted to do good and now had the power to do something about it. In some cases, even the do-gooders couldn’t stop the criminals, but other times there was success. However, in either case, trying to stop the criminal caused more harm than the criminal had even done in committing the crime.

Fear, that’s what drove the research into these powered individuals. In the research, it was discovered that all enhanced individuals have one trait in common. They all have a large amount of what they called Quantum particles, in their body. However, there was no way to eliminate the Quantum particles, they were in the blood, bonding to the DNA, and the enhancement was permanent. To control the situation, a law was put into place, requiring that everyone in the city be screened for Quantum particles, and everyone, no matter the circumstances, with the Quantum particles in their system above the specified value would be placed into a camp, a prison just outside of the city modified for the situation, whether they exhibited any sign of enhanced abilities or not.


Powers, Skill Level, & Threat Level

Powers:

  • Again, I will select each character’s power. This will be chosen based on a combination of factors, their personality/background, what they were doing when the cataclysm occurred, unique plot ideas, and if necessary a random selection.
  • Anyone can feel free to suggest interesting powers, but this does not mean your character will have a power that you suggest. that being said, an interesting idea can sway me to give a power you want. If you strongly want a certain power, plead your case and there’s a good chance I’ll go with it.
  • Each character can train with their power and increase their skill over time.

Skill Level:
This is how skilled they are with their power. As the character learns more about their power, how to control it and increase what they can do, this level will increase.

Threat Level:
This is how much of a threat they are considered to be by the government. This is dependent on the power, their skill level, and how secretive they are about their abilities. Their behavior will impact this.

Extra Info

Additional information will be added here over time.

  • All enhanced individuals are kept within the prison ground by an impenetrable force field type barrier of unknown origin.
  • Individuals who cooperated with being taken to the prison, were given the opportunity to pack/bring along some clothes and personal belongings from their home.
  • The first individuals were brought to the prison camp exactly 1 year after the cataclysm, and as of the beginning of the RP, it has been approximately 1 month since then, and most individuals exhibiting high levels of quantum particles have been detained by this point.

Time Since Cataclysm: 1 year, 1 month, 0 days

It has been a month since the first individuals were brought into their new home, a prison just beyond the city limits of Solare. Though the prison was impacted by the cataclysm, any inmates who were not impacted by quantum particles were relocated, allowing for a new purpose for the facility. With upgrades to security, such as force field barriers to prevent escape, this facility has been deemed as the most secure location to keep everyone safe. Population numbers within the facility have begun rising, and will continue to do so, as the Mayor’s encouragement of testing has become a mandate. Testing for quantum particles is mandatory for all workplaces, schools, and medical facilities, as well as to enter or leave the city. Soon the Mayor’s plan for a force to go door to door of each household to test every individual within the city will be initiated, to ensure the safety of the public from potentially dangerous enhanced individuals.
