''Surge'' is a role-play set in roughly NextSundayAD, in which the players assume the roles of various supers (the term superheroes having been dropped due to the rather large villain demographic).

The series also includes a prequel, which deserves a mention. Though not intended to be a prequel, the RP ''Overcharged'', written by one Pandarenba, was a similar idea, though it sourced from the premise of just make up a character and do whatever you want. After the ensuing chaos, something approaching a structured storyline appeared, and it developed to be an excellent game, save for one thing; the apparent disappearance of the GM. A while after, a player of the first game, ThreeWords (who played a character by the same name) asked for permission to do a tribute in the same universe; and thus ''Surge'' was born.

Though based in the same universe, ''Surge'' was more rule bound than ''Overcharged'', though that still meant a lot of free will for the characters. Anyone from ''Overcharged'' was welcome to join, but only two did, transferring their characters. The ensuing RP, while slightly ordered, was still rather chaotic, and matters weren't helped by ThreeWords going AWOL, both in character and presence, though skill by the players allowed it to remain intact long enough for her to return. The finale was by all accounts awe-inspiring, and a sequel was called for.

A sequel, ''Surge 2'', was indeed planned, but never happened.

A new episode, Strain, is in it's opening stages, and will shortly begin. It is still under ThreeWords' management, but a number of veterans stand by to rescue the story/take power should he disappear as she is prone to do

* CapeBusters: The Company
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The two main villains of Surge 1, drugged up and restrained. Need I say more? Oh, alright then:
--> "Are you even a real captain? WHERE THE FUCK IS YOUR BOAT, MR. CAPTAIN!?"
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Ryan, Amy, Kris and Damien fit the bill of melancholic, phlegmatic, sanguine and choleric quite nicely.
* GrowingTheBeard: The first few pages of the thread were markedly shoddier in terms of writing quality than some of the later ones.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Amy]] does this at the end of Surge 1 in order to defeat [[spoiler:Ray/Dark Mist]].
