The story so far...

Supermen, Uberminch, demigod, sorcerers, throughout the ages there has almost always been a rush to create, train, or find, a way to exceed the limits of the human body and or mind. however it wasn't until the modern era that such ideas began to be realized. during the cold war the united states finally cracked the code to making super soldiers. the secret was held within the technology that had won the last major war. the power held within the atom was harnessed and given to people directly. in 1969 the first batch was a failure, designated the "Titan" series, the subjects all mutated horribly with most of the five dozen candidates suffering from fatal mutations, and only three subject survived with details on their conditions being erased and all loose ends tied up. It wasn't until 4 years later in 1973 that they would begin to see any real success. the second batch was labeled the Centurion series and of the 300 initial candidates 36 were deemed successful all of whom displayed enhanced physical and mental prowess. while the enhancements were far from godlike the thirty six of them were trained and as three seperate cells managed to destroy missile subs and silos in cuba ending the cuban missile crisis, while the second cell planted well hidden explosives in every missile silo they knew of within russia, while the third cell assassinated the political leaders of the soviet union. Thirty six soldiers had managed to topple an entire nation, and the super soldier arms race began.

The U.S perfected the Centurion process and sold supersoldiers to her allies while using the unfair edge they offered to cripple any attempts that her enemies could make to create their own. Unfortunately all this has lead to the coming global conflict. the Centurion process was reverse engineered by allies attempting to modify it, and spies within the government began to grow wealthy selling the secrets to the enemies of the western world. In 1993 a terrorist group known as Delta managed to conduct a brutal massacre in the streets of new york, where seven Centurion enhanced extremists went on a rampage, mercilessly killing a staggering 1463 people in 20 minutes before the national guard could deploy their own centurions to stop them. Attempts to track down delta only yielded ambushes and traps for eight years costing lives and resources from nearly every country. Yet delta wouldn't reveal itself until 2001 when the organization would attack brazil and in one day successfully topple the nations government, military and all of its contingencies. reports put the number of delta extremists in the thousands and apparently all of them were Centurions. For the past 20 years its been a complete information blackout within the new nation of Delta and not for lack of trying countless missions have been launched within their borders but none have ever returned, and all drones and even satellite images are made foggy and unclear. Only one mission ever came back and of the twelve centurions sent only one returned, they revealed blueprints for a new superhuman serum containing an element that could not be synthesized on earth.

Finally this year they have made their presence known once again revealing a new breed of superhuman, the Olympians. this powerful new breed takes their superhuman power to the limits, combining physical prowess beyond any centurion, with psychic power enough to flatten entire city blocks. These 12 remarkably powerful Super-humans each lead an army to take a large city and were almost casually successful. Tokyo, Delhi, Shanghai, Mexico City, Dhaka, Cairo, Karachi, Istanbul, Buenos Aires, Kinshasa, Lagos, And Manila. twelve cities holding a little over a quarter of a billion people now rest within the hands of the Delta Organization and as of yet no demands have been made, the cities have been locked down under the same static field that blocks images and drones from surveying Brazil. though the militaries of the world have made their best efforts they can do little more than line up just outside the range of the Delta fortifications as their far more advanced energy weapons technology make short work of any vehicles or armors that the world has to offer. The world waits on baited breath to see what the Delta group will do with the 250 million plus civilians, however not all are content to wait.

many lost friends and family during the attack on new york and the conquest of brazil, and many of them were very wealthy and powerful people. Spurred by anger and grief they would go on to dump their fortunes into a secret U.N project known as the Delta Force, an artificially bred and grown superhuman task force consisting of six members who would be specifically designed to handle any threat that could be thrown at them. Grown from a human genome removed of any genetic errors and improved to operate at peak capacity the children were born with the pinnacle of human capabilities. throughout their childhoods they were raised with the best education money could buy, given the best training from special forces and government agents around the world in everything from horseback riding to flying fighter jets, martial arts masters and cqc experts from around the globe were paid wll to train the children, with the worlds greatest physical trainers and dietitians monitoring their intake and physique. all the while they were slowly given centurion serum mixed into their food mic micro doses of radioactive isotopes to activate it. by the time the children were ten years of age they could compare physically and intellectually to a fully grown and well trained centurion. at twelve however the real changes began, the new modified serum was given to them in a single large dose which caused each of the six children to fall into a coma. despite this their bodies underwent amazing changes becoming far beyond what anyone had imagined.

the coma would last for nearly six years ending on the third of February 2021 a mere three months before the Delta organization revealed their Olympian series and took cities hostage. the three months just after awakening was spent with the six subjects getting accustomed to their new adult bodies which though incredibly powerful were very out of shape due to the coma. they would come to find that even the weakest among them possessed physical prowess far beyond even the mightiest of centurion series meta-humans. but more impressive were the special powers each of the subjects manifested, one can generate and control fire with a thought, another can draw and manipulate water from nearly any source, the third can manipulate and amplify the wind, the fourth can emit a field that lets them telekinetically control rocks and minerals, the fifth can absorb, generate, and project electricity, and the fifth possesses numerous psychic powers that seem tailor made to modify the team. Once the Olympians made their debut the Six elementals began their training as a team and a short six weeks later they are ready to deploy into the hostage cities in order to tear down the static fields and take down the Olympians. The start of these six super soldiers career begins with twelve missions, a quarter billion lives in the balance and their entire lives worth of preparation being put to the test.​

The Different kinds of metahuman

Centurion-(Playable) the first ever series of superhuman. they are stronger, faster, and have senses and order of magnitude beyond that of even Olympic medalists. their brains process information faster and their reflexes are similarly enhanced allowing for remarkable feats of dexterity and sprinting comparable to highway speeds. finally their stamina, slowed metabolism, and regeneration of superficial damage allow them to keep kicking making even one of them more than a match for an entire platoon of marines.

Elemental-(Playable) A line of six specialized metahumans made from genetic modification, slow implementation of the Centurion serum, followed by a dose of some experimental serums created in an attempt to recreate the Olympian serum spies managed to get the blueprints of all for the sole purpose of destroying the Delta terrorist cell. the end result are metahumans possessing the physical abilities of a centurion but nearly two times better in every category, in addition to specific elemental and psychic powers. well trained and ready their only weakness is their inexperience.

Olympians-(non-playable) A line of twelve secretly developed metahumans with "godlike" power. Very little is known about their capabilities but field reports say they each have 5000 centurions serving under them and were able to defeat entire squads of Brazilian centurions by themselves and while unarmed. worse still with their revelation came another terrifying fact, the Delta terrorist cell has more advanced technology than the rest of the world, as their troops are armed with advanced energy weapons.

???- there may be more meta human types down the line depending on how this goes.​

im glad i got a bite already. there is a bit of work to put in pertaining to working out the last bits of information and building cs pages and the like, but that shouldnt take too long and im open to any suggestions.
What if Delta Squad had codenames based off of the Greek Titans?

that could work but Cronus is taken. it would be a bit repetitive though the first line of failed meta humans were the titans, centurions came after that batch the scientists learned quite alot from the titans

Would something such as shapeshifting be an option? What about the titans?

Maybe in the later additions to the series shapeshifting could be utilized but at the current state not so much. tech just isn’t there yet. That said the psychic one of the six could likely alter people’s perception of them to a degree that would be similar to shapeshifting.

As for the Titans I do have plans for them in the future so for now they are non playable as they are meant to be thought of as dead and gone failed experiments.

thank you asthetically it could use some work but im glad it piqued your interest. Yes you may i left their power description kinda vague so you have wriggle room but bear in mind controlling people is gonna have to be off limits for the rp to function. if you can take over my villains there isn't much i can do to spice up action scenes.

I am interested in the wind elemental!
cool thank you glad i caught your eye. your spot is reserved ill update my list soon. the wind elemental has lots of ways to use their power. im interested to see what you come up with.

once we get two more elementals i will make the cs page. if we do not have the 6th elemental by the time the other pages are done then i will just take the last spot so we can get a faster start.

Might be a good idea to make a discord group chat in case RPN becomes unavailable again.

Will their be a distinction between each of the U.N Centurions abilities? Things that make them unique such as one that is physically stronger than the rest, one faster, one with a higher rate, of healing, one with more dense skin, ect. Or are they all typically equal in physical ability?

kinda both. centurions do have generalized stats to start, but one of the things that improves is the adaption and development rate. so a centurion that focuses on physical training can get aroun 300% as strong as the base line, with the same being true across the board with any stat you focus on. these specializations can actually create a pretty sizable difference but a centurions stats cannot drop below the average of around 10x human.

interested, im ready to consider any role that is requiring since I haven't any specific idea yet
the most important roles still open right now are the roles for earth, water, and fire elementals. assuming you take one of them we will only need another one and then i can fill in the gap and we can start.

Ok I'm thinking about taking water but what are the limitations to what i will be able to do? Control water? Become water physically? Create hard water constructs? Freeze it into ice?

likely all of the above with the exception of freezing it that will require teaming up with wind elemental. creating hard water constructs would be a high difficulty skill, while turning into water would be medium difficulty. think of it like a paramecia fruit from one piece.

Ok that makes sense. So i would have to build up to the advanced stuff over a long period of time/unlock it. And I'm assuming swimming super fast, and breathing underwater is possible for my character as well. If so I would like to take the role of water element.

yes though incidentally its not breathing rather just absorbing the water and your body filters it naturally. superspeed can be ac heived in water by taking advantage of the lack of bubbling effect. basically you allow water to pass through you as if phasing through the water effectivly reducing drag to zero and zip around at near supersonic speed
