Default The Things [working title]

New NES!
Yay.
Okay.
So. People with powers: cliche, right? Let's make this one not cliche. Help me work out the kinks. Not only will we be writing this story all together - but we can create it as well. Almost like a gigantic co-write, instead of an NES.
If that makes sense.
Anyway.
Here's the idea:

There was a time, once, when we were a respected and admired people - chosen by God as his representatives: his healers and his warriors. We were honored, rich -- treated as though we were kings. We had the powers of gods. We could create amazing illusions, speak to spirits, harness the wind, and so much more.
But times change.
There was a man whose name was Hector Appleby and he was one of us. He did terrible things. He wandered the many roads of our country and did terrible things: turned a child's skin inside out, made a old woman sob blood, twisted the mind, blinded and destroyed.
He began to preach against his own people.
We were demons.
We were terrorists.
We were to be shunned. To be killed.
He gave us a bad name.
We were called then the Darklings.
Our friends turned against us and we were hunted.
We were driven into the unforgiving mountains.
And there we waited for five long generations.
Terrified of our own power.
Terrified of the world outside of our mountain citadels.
When we slowly began to trickle down into the world once again, we were only the awful creations of legend.
We found that the world had moved on.
It was an entirely different place.
A place of strange machines and strange sciences.

This is our story.


So there we go!
That's the basic outline.
We can either elaborate on the plot a little bit more or jump straight into some character designing
I really like this idea and I hope it goes somewhere.
I guess we can come up with the character form after we make more progress with the actual plot. I was also thinking that specific powers would be hereditary...ehhhh, anyway, comment if you want to join or help out. Or if you're in any way interested.

Sounds cool! I say we elaborate on the plot... it's a very interesting idea.

I'll join, but do we need character forms?

Yeah..there's no plot at all. Only a basic outline, like I said, so we could all have our say in specific plot points and everything
