Original Premise

New kind of human beings that have appeared within our society. Humans capable to doing extraordinary feats, something that only occurred in the media of fiction. Abilities that enables to projected fire from their bodies, able to manipulate various things from a simple flick of their fingers to the extent of their will. There were many names for these kinds of “human beings” that have appeared in our world. In recent times, they’ve settled onto the term “Specials” to describe these powerful humans. Originally just occurred at rare moments in history, have becoming more and more common in the population. This led to panic across the world; the more specials that are born, the higher chance of destructive people that go on a rampage. The paranoia fuels their fears and hatred, in order to avoid being “overrun by outsiders”.

Responding to criticism and fear, the United Nation, backed with many countries’ support, decided to crack down and control the situation, in order to ease the paranoia world-wide. They’ve expected that discrimination will occurred; thus, in 1980, the construction of the largest city in United States was started and finished in 1983. It was stated to be a paradise, a place for specials to have full support from one another, while giving humanity enough time to find the middle ground between the two sides. However, it triple the rate of fear; it increased further discrimination. Specials that “hurt” humans, will be hunted down and thrown into the city. The city that once flourished with books have been lost after being cut off from the rest of the worlds by military of the United States; education, support from families, and everything of the lively hood of getting a “good life” was ceased. The first 3 years of what it seem was “paradise” was nothing more than a ploy to the eyes of specials. The world doesn’t care for them, they only wished to lock up the “monsters”. After years of abandonment from the rest of the world, residential specials have renamed the place that had succumbed to ruin state, as “Lost City”, where Specials are forced into the environment of survival of the fittest.

However, despite the gloomy and toxic environment, some specials somehow managed to escape the city. Few went towards their families, whether they returned or killed was never determined. Though a majority of them that have escaped, simply wanted to cause havoc and mayhem to let out their frustration. To counter these Specials, the UN supplied United States military around Lost City to implement tough laws for these “acts”; even punishment people in Lost City for Specials’ mayhem outside of it. This also led to the creation of the stereotype that specials are starve for destruction.

However, there is an organization within Lost City, which dedicated itself to combat against the stereotypes and bring prosperity to Specials. Its calls itself the Heroes Buster Organization; they’re determined to create a world where Specials and Humans alike can live freely in peace and harmony without violence. They tried to capture out-of-control specials to return them to their homes so they won’t get punished for their crimes.
 
No More Heroes Timeline

Lost City Arc
Year: March of 2009
Setting: Lost City
Location: Wichita, Kansas

(Lost City Arc Summary)Susie Charm, the founder of the Heroes Busters Organization, was reading a few documents with a concern face. She noticed that there was a couple of “rouge” Specials that are causing quite a havoc around Kansas for a couple of weeks. To make matters worse, the UN is placing blame of the “Heroes Busters Organization” because these Specials claimed to have ties with them.  To avoid having their name and the rest of the inhabitants of Lost City penalized for a few, Susie called upon others that joined the Organization to bring in the troublemakers to the United Nations to get them off their backs.

Selene, Lissette and Xavier Kalen were already part of the Busters and eager to give out their support to help bring in the troublemakers and clear their names. Naolyn Mango, whom entered the city was a lone special on the street. She was afraid of her own shadow; however, due to Susie’s kindness, something “new” to her, she wished to join the Busters, thinking that perhaps there’s a better future than wandering in the streets. Giovani Rodriguez and Cernia Nieves start off rather as “enemies” due to not liking each other when they first met, but decided to stick with the Busters for their reasons. Giovani wanted fame and glory while Cernia simply want a place to call “home”.

Susie used her teleportation ability, bringing them to the outskirts of Topeka, Kansas where the last activity of a man named “Zaion Bane” whom have the eyes of the “devil”. Susie urged the others that they only have a moment to search the area to see any clues regarding this mysterious man. After a long search, the man called Zaion appeared for their eyes. Susie question why he’s using their name to exploits his deeds. He simply tells them that “Specials are want to be trapped like sheep should remain as such. Unlike you, Susie, I aim to take action for Specials…” 
 
Thus battle erupted. Giovani went for the first blow using his fire abilities; however it seems to leave him unaffected. In fact, all the Busters attacking him didn’t do anything. Zaion reveals that his ability allows him to completely nullify any ability/power from activating; then stated that his can reverse damaged he has taken towards his enemies ten-fold with a snap of his fingers. With a snap, all the Busters fell to the ground as he smirks. He looked from afar, noticing that the United States Special Defense was coming check the situation, leaving them to get arrested. Zaion smiles and walked away, stating that “what’s the point of a peaceful movement if they still shoot us down like rabbits? Our powers is more than enough to differ us from the rest of humans, so if they wished to use violence, they’ll get it.”
 
Susie was the first to recover from the battle with Zaion. Didn’t want to have the Busters captured, with the exception of Xavier whom was knocked away to another area by Zaion, she managed to teleported most of them to Lost City while she let herself get taken away by the UN.

Zaion Bane and Leo have orchestrated of what they called “fireworks”, a complete and uttered destruction of Lost City. The nuclear blast have lay waste throughout the entire city and leading to the death of hundreds of thousands. Nearly 90% of the population was killed from the blast. The utter destruction of Lost City appeared before their very eyes, as buildings collapses as it unstable to withstand its own weight. People who survived the blast later died from the wounds they have suffered from the destructive showcase and energy blast from the bomb. A city that populated nearly half of million, 90% specials living in that city, leading to only having 50,000 specials in that city that survive the onslaught. Those that survive, receive some strange reaction to the radiation, changing their appearances and powers.

Yo! I just updated the Planning/Preview Thread for No More Heroes! This is preparation for the "semi-reboot/continuation" for No More Heroes Arc! A new character thread will be created to accommodate these changes! So the new arc, The Vacation Arc, will be starting on July 11th! Be prepared!
 
Hi, I wanna join this role-play. Just one question tho: I have a character whose power is the sixth-sense (you know, talking to ghosts, using a ghost's skill and stuff). Is it acceptable?

Yup! That's totally fine! :pimp:
 
Everything looks good! If you have any questions regarding NMH, feel free to contact me anytime.
 
Thanks. I wanna another question: Is the Mother's Sanctuary a public thing? Like, do other normal people know about it?
 
Specials know something about it - the fact that it in Romania. Normal people considered the place as rumors.
 
Hi, I have a question~ I see that High level time/space powers are banned. So that means low levels one is still allowed? And if so, what would you  consider low enough to be acceptable?
 
Lemme expand on Vii's question: Basically its in regards to two of my characters I'm planning. The first has the power to rewind or fast forward time in small increments up to but not exceeding 24 hours, the second has Temporal Healing/ the power to rewind time around person/animal/object.

In more detail: 

Bob's power: Several small rewinds or fast forwards a day.
Rules:
~number of times limited by how far back or forward he goes.
~ Powers drain energy. 
~ Used too much they cause migraines and or nosebleeds due to mental strain.
~If he jumps ahead or behind a day than he can't use his powers for nother 24 hours. So if he jumps forward he's s.o.l. Cause he'll just rewind to the time he jumped to: (Ie: jumps forward to Sat, can use powers again till Sun, and then can only rewind to Sat. iow: Can't return to Fri.)
~ Trying to go back more than 24 hours can and will kill the user unless there is power from another source even then its very dangerous and should only be attempted in the most dire of circumstance. 

Aureo's powers: Can rewind time round person/animal/object up to a couple hours by touching them to heal/fix them.
RULES:
~ Must maintain firm hold, breaking contact stops the temporal healing.
~ Can only rewind a couple of minutes. To one or two hours (He's never been able to go past two hours, as its always made him pass out from exhaustion.)
~ Temporal Healing causes a constant drain on the caster. If over used it can kill the caster.
~ Can be used on ones self but energy is still drained.
~ After use caster is very weak and sick, and usually starving as well.
~ Can potentially resurect the dead as long as they died within the past two hours and their bodies aren't in too bad a shape. (Ie: He has to be able to touch it: If theres no body theirs no healing.)

Bob's power: Several small rewinds or fast forwards a day.
Rules:

Low-Level Time Manipulation is allowed. 

Aureo's powers is fine.

As for Bob's power, is a bit complicated. Is Bob himself only affected by this? Because if Bob can potentially jumped ahead through time (basically, rewinding time) falls under "high-level time manipulation".

Bob is the only one who goes, he's never tried to take another human with him as he'd have to power their transition as well ie: double the cost to himself. 
 
And basically he only does time jumps sparingly because like I said it puts severe mental and physical strain on his body using it. Over time he has built up his endurance, but its a very slow costly process (To be clear: He still can't and probably never will be able to jump more than 24 hours ahead or behind. But his ability to make the several small jumps with out the nasty side effects being as severe has increased over time.)

He cannot rewind everyone in a room to where they were five minutes ago, for all intents and purposes to everyone else when he rewinds nothing changes to them. while from his prospective he corrected his actions. Really tho its not a battle type power as it takes time and focus to activate. What its really good for is espionage, and chess... 

You make a small covert move against the enemy. Wait or fast forward a couple hours and see what happened and how they responded. Then just go back and document your findings for future reference. 

Its very handy. 

Bob himself is a noncombatant for the most part. His strategy is to distract the enemy and than haul his fat ass out of there as fast as possible. (either by running, or rewinding (if he has time) to avoid the encounter all together.) His job is to gather intel not brawl.

So, if he time jumps, does he just disappeared to the next day? :think:

Give me an example of how Bobs time-jump works so I can have a better understanding.  It's a bit ambiguous at the moment. xD

EDIT:

I think the problem with the time-rewind is that it should be limited to few seconds-minutes at best. 24 hours makes it broken.
 
I was editing and you posted

No he doesn't disappear, his body stays there during fast forward. So usually he finds somewhere secluded to do it. So no one comes across him just standing unresponsive in a hall drooling and staring at nothing, usually he pretends to go to sleep. After all, far less awkward to be found dead asleep. Its the consciousness that skips back and forth. Or the soul if you will. And the trip forward will cut off abruptly and slingshot him back if sometime during that skip he was killed outside the fast forward.
 
So, let's see if I'm understanding this correctly.

Bob can fast-forward his mind into the future, say to gather information, his mind (assuming it's not wandering off) get placed into his future body and once that's done, he can rewind his mind back to his past body?
 
Yeah but anyways Dropping his character. I'll just Use Aureo. Working on Bios.
 
So yeah, as you wished, here's the character I'm working on. I want him to be one of the bad guys later, despite his ideal is a bit different from them. Perhaps if they are able to convince him humans don't deserve to become Specials he may take interest in wrecking havoc

Name: Taka Afolayan
 
Identity Name:  The Alchemist
 
Birthday: September 5th

Power:

 
1st Power: Matter Transmutation
– He can transform an object (or raw matter in general) into another.  
Rules:
- He must have and maintain physical contact on the object.
- He cannot transmute living things like humans and animals.
- The object and the thing it is transmuted to must have the same mass and nature. For example, he cannot turn a tiny needle into a buster sword, or turn something made of glass into something made of wood.
 
2nd Power
After the nuclear incident, he has the ability to know the characteristics of an object when he touches it. He will immediately gain knowledge of the object’s measurements, weight, material and defects (if any). The information is lost once he let the object go.

Weakness:

- If he ever attempts to break the rule of mass when transmuting something, a part of his body will be taken away to make up for the unbalance. If the amount is small then he only have cuts on him, but a larger mass can cost him an arm or a leg, or life.
 
- Breaking the law of nature simply means the power won’t work and the object stays the same.

Age: 27


Gender: Male


Ethnicity: African American


Appearance: Taka is an African-american man standing up to nearly 190 cm tall, with a strong build, long (past shoulder length) dreadlocks and a short goatee. The man has stern hooded eyes that are bright green and a scar across his left one. He is well dressed, almost always wears shirts with rolled up sleeves and trousers.


Status: Anti-Villain


Personality: Taka is a man of facts and science. He is skeptical and would only believe in things he had seen with his own eyes. He is also a responsible man who would work days and nights without sleep if the task given requires him to. If he is left without anything to do for a long time, he would become restless. Then, people may find him doing random things like building complex chain reaction, or calculating how to do a perfect soccer shoot.

 
His biggest downfall would be his temper, especially when he hadn’t slept for a long time. He also has a tendency to overlook other’s feelings and later regretted it, but still too prideful to apologize. He is also very possessive toward things he consider his (his lover, his pen, his room, etc you get the idea), so much so he wouldn’t let anyone touch them without his permission.
 
Despite looking pretty scary to youngsters, he is overprotective and soft when it comes to children. He would appear irritated with them but will eventually give in and let them style his hair or something.
 
Background: When he was a child, Taka was always the ignored child. His parents neglected him in favor of his brother, who wasn’t a Special and thus seemed to be perfect in every way to their parents. Despite all his effort to please his parents, he never got an approval from them. He eventually gave up and withdrew into his own room and hated his whole family. He immediately split to live on his own in Lost City after he turned 18 and worked various jobs to save money for his own education. He got his Bachelor of Science at 25 and dedicated his time to researching Specials.
 
He was inspired by the lectures of one professor in his time in college.  Believing Specials were superior to humans in every way, he began to fantasize about a world where Specials were dominant. Along with several other scientists, he secretly attempted many immoral experiments on animals and homeless people in order to find a way to turn humans into Specials, trusting that the discrimination may stop once Specials become dominant. However, before they could achieve anything, the nuclear explosion had blown all of their researches to bits.
 
He was brought to the Sanctuary by the people who dug him out of what was left of the city. There, he made acquaintance with a young healer who was in-charge of him. At first, he was annoyed by the man, who seemed to be quite nosey about his family life, but eventually Aureo earned his trust and he let the healer follow him around.
 
While wanting to continue his ideal, he had to stay in the Sanctuary for the meantime since he had nowhere else to be and had lost contact with all his fellow researchers (if any of them were alive anyway).
