You always think it’d be so cool to be that one guy picked out to be the hero. I didn’t even get that. There were six of us, and we all swore never to tell what really happened, but its time it came to light. We were all normal teens. The only thing that connected us at first was we all attended the same high school. We were all different people. Some of us hadn’t even talked to each other before. Then some how we were all there when the first gateway opened. It was late at night out at the edge of town, and this massive creature stepped out, and from there its history. That’s what we’re here to tell though. To tell you about the shit that went down in the small town of Brighton Vermont.
Plot: The RP would be the actual events of the past. The six teens who are involved eventually are sucked into the gateway then spat back out very changed. The RP will start with the next morning. We all got home, and then we’ve got school in the morning. Now those changes you received re a small set of super powers. You get 4 skills, in the style of a MOBA, with 3 normal skills and an ultimate. These skills should be similar in design/theme. That thing we saw we a demon from the nether realm, and they are the main antagonist of course. Some are simple mindless beasts, but others are cunning and brilliant. Obviously the teens are the only ones equipped for dealing with them, so eventually they need to learn how to work together, and how to beat the demons.
It’s a bit odd, but it’s a mix of the RP example and your character making skills. Since this is a retelling you are to write your SU as your character talking about themselves in the past. Follow up with a photo, why they were at the first portal, and then end with the needed list of info. After that you got the 4 skills.
Age: ((you are attending high school))
You remember that kid you never knew in high school… well obviously no. Well I’m that guy. Nobody knows me, and I like it that way. I’m ok in the background and alone. Quite and defensive. I prefer my own way, and my own life. I will defend my way to my last breath, but.. I guess some people do know me and are ok with it. Five of them in fact. To them I’m Shade, the most ninja kid you’ll ever meet.
As Shade I still kept to the shadows, and I kept my name hidden for the longest time. I just didn’t want to let them in, and then I knew that even I needed help. Then again my powers were just that. I had this ghostly spirit who followed me around. He was old and wise, and was one of the few good things to come out of a portal. Spectrum was his name. He was living shadows, and he was my partner in it all.
Shade and Spectrum join the team against Demons of Decay, coming to an RP forum near you.
I was just coming home from the bookstore that night. I spent hours there usually since I didn’t have the money to buy anything, but wanted to read. Home was ok, and I hid there too. My parents had accepted my loner nature. We lived outside of town, so I biked everywhere. I had one of those normal bikes with the electric motor that you charge up by peddling. It made getting home easier. I don’t know what drew me out there, but I knew there was something out there in the woods that night. I ditched my bike and locked it to a tree. I ran deep into the woods my excellent night vision letting me maneuver the forest. I soon began to see a faint red glow off in the distance. I drew closer until I saw it. The portal, but at the time I didn’t know. Something was coming out of the light. It was huge and black, and you could feel the energy flowing off it, but then it seemed to be pulled back into the glowing light. There was a massive roar and the light collapsed exploding and leveling nearby trees. I was still over thirty yards off and I was knocked off my feet. I ran for my bike and hurried home not sure what I had seen.

1. Shadow Meld: turns into a shadow for up to one minute which can go through even tiny gaps.
2. Dark Spire: A spire of solid shadows strikes out from a shadow within five feet of Shade.
3. Spectrum Call: Spectrum glides down or rises up from the shadows to aid Shade.
4. Living Darkness: Spectrum splits into three more shadows, and Shade’s shadow rises up too. All five can cast Shade’s powers, but if any are destroyed Shade and Spectrum are knocked out.
