Post by Chellizard on June 12th 2013, 6:12 pm

Superhero RPG's History and Lore!
A walk down memory lane. Find out how the meta-gene got it's name, when heroes first emerged, and the basic history of our forum.

Please note. Staff choose which events to add onto the History, and what Lore needs to be added as well. Don't be offended if we don't pick your contributions right away!

Superhero RPG's History

There is a time-line put together, but after will follow some important lore to explain some things within the forum. But, first of all, this forum's history has jumped, skipped, and sky dived from good to bad things. It is finally going to be put into a bulleted state for your viewing pleasure.

As you all know, the Meta-Gene is what has given most of our super heroes and villains their powers. Some people are born with it, some people experimented on and given the gene, and others gain their powers from completely different origins. Despite that, the history that's going to be written in a bulleted fashion will follow the Meta-Gene and it's first appearances, then the history will flow into the actual forums main history revolving around some of the most "well known" heroes, villains, and inbetweens.

  • - { 1600s } - A Mad Scientist, Brenard Metakorvich, experiments on men, women, and children whom are sick from war to attempt and renew medicine. Inspired by stories of a beastman who could heal himself at an astronomical rate. (The Scientist is aiming to create Regeneration. The power is rumored to have been seen in cases among other humans, too, before the 1600s.)

    • 1615 - Brenard Metakorvich is led on an expedition in search of lost science in Antarctica. Rumor has it, an extinct subhuman species has been found.
    • 1620 - Metakorvich and his team discovered the cells of the subhuman species in the mouth of a frozen Sabre Toothed Tiger. The cells can regenerate.
    • 1630 - Metakorvich starts to apply the cells to other individuals after having the cells multiply. All test subjects have expired.
    • 1650 - Metakorvich has created a successful specimen who seems to Regenerate from wounds much faster than a normal human.
    • 1674 - Metakorvich has passed his knowledge onto his apprentice, Jeddediah Valencior.

  • - { 1700s }-

    • 1710 - Valencior names the regenerative gene 'Meta' in honor of his late mentor.
    • 1730 - The Meta-Gene is still the hype of 'Mad Scientists' whom wish to expand the capabilities of simple humans.
    • 1750 - The Meta-Gene has started to mutate and creates more than just regenerative qualities in human specimens.

  • - { 1800s } -

    • 1811 - Experiments that successfully adapted to the Meta-Gene have procreated.
    • 1826 - Valencior's successor, Gabriel Valencior, is the father to a child with the Meta-gene.
    • 1843 - A scientist begins his own experiments on the meta gene. Resulting in a synthetic meta gene.

    • 1891-1910 - Ariel Valencior was abducted by the US Government for acts of Terrorism. She then dies in 1910 from a failed experiment to better understand her genetic make up. Her final last words: "Metas are everywhere... In your home, at your schools, in the work place... We will rise to power."

  • - { 1900s-2023} -

    • 1910 - The US Government heeds Ariel Valencior's word and stays wary of other Metahumans like her.
    • 1920 - Heroes and Villains start emerging, using their powers to save people, or take over the world.
    • 1921 - An Organization is built to learn more about the Metahumans and the like. (Think of it as a Pre-Project Perfection.)
    • 1947 -  Extraterrestrial lifeforms have been confirmed.
    • 1969 - Further studies into the stories of extra-normal beings led to many scientists believing in the existences of other realms parallel to our own.
    • 1983 - The existence of another realm was confirmed. Beings from this place correlated with some of the stories that had been studied. (Heaven and Hell do not exist. Planes/Realms do, however.)
    • 1983 - The Government adopts a program to counter the threats of metahumans and otherworldly entities. The program is split into 2 groups. Project Perfection and Dominus.
    • 1985 - The Public is catching on to metahumans and other anomalies. The public adopts the terms 'Superhumans, Superheroes and Supervillains' to describe them. Project Perfection and Dominus know them as Metahumans
    • 1983 - 2018 - Project Perfection reigns behind the scenes creating perfect metahumans to fight for the US Government. The agents go rogue and follow Doctor Necrodium instead of the United States scientists that created them.
    • 2018 - The New York Assault is at our doorstep.  Ultimate destruction, led by Doctor Necrodium, devastates New York City.  A Coalition of heroes and villains rise to confront Doctor Necrodium before his presence can spread passed New York City.  Necrodium falls, but his father Pain is left with nothing but broken pride.  He flees, leaving his city in ruins.

    • 2019-2020 - Not long after the New York Assault, The Purge is upon us. Dominus has stepped from the shadows to put their stamp on the world. Dominus has made any and all heroes look just as bad as the villains.

    • 20XX - A young hero known as Phoenix is thought to be dead, his fight with the villain Holocaust putting things to an end as the two brawled, bringing the fight back through the portal, closing it and saving New York.

Despite the efforts of many on the scene, including a metahumanl known as Copper and an android known as Hotep, thousands lost their lives in the carnage. Motives for the crisis remain unknown.

Superhero RPG's Lore

This information is not meant to be a complete list of all lore on the forum, as such a list would likely be impossible. However, it is meant to be a compilation of information readily known to the general public, as well as some important notes on how the world of SHRP works. Feel free to offer contributions to this section the same as you would the Timeline.

Confirmed creatures of supernatural legend:

  • Vampires Several different types have been discovered. Some seem similar to metahumans.

  • WerewolvesAgain, there are multiple different types. Some are just metahumans that seem to have similar powers to the creatures of myth, while others are undeniably supernatural.

  • Ghosts/Wraiths Sometimes, the dead come back! Though still regarded as a myth by most, spirits of the dead have been confirmed in one form or another.  

  • Demons/Angels Though they aren't exactly what you find in the bible, creatures from hellish and heavenly dimensions have traversed to the world of SHRP!

  • Dragons Through mysticism or otherwise, the form of the dragon has proved to be more then legend.

  • Wardens: Not known to the general public, but their existence is apparent. The reason for the lack of confirmation among society seems to be because they are mistook for metahumans, angels, and other mythological entities.

Dimensions that have been confirmed to exist:

  • Oblivion: A mysterious, chaotic realm that seems to be an amalgamation of many different sub-dimensions. Thought to be where dreams come from.

  • The Shroud: The veil dimension where The Wardens reside and fulfill their duties. Each Warden has their own personalized segment of this dimension—their Hold.

  • Hell: No other specific name for it. It's what we're going with for now. Whether it is the actual hell or just the place the inspired the biblical stories is unknown. Research favors the latter.

  • The Fae Realm: Few know of this realm's existence, let alone who or what occupies it.

Miscellaneous Lore/Notes:

  • - Rumors of the existences of superhumans have existed for as long as recorded history. One possible answer for these rumors have included early cases of the metahuman gene. Others include aliens, inter-dimensional entities and supernatural phenomena.

  • - Research has indicated that religious mythologies may have been based off of the presence of beings of the various origins. The similarities between mythologies suggest that these stories started at one source and the facts got muddled through retelling.

  • - Project Perfection is believed to have been operating in smaller groups without government permission under many different names.
