Roleplay / Fragile Alliance

An RP created by Slash_Prower. It is set in an alternate universe, where 5 mercenary organizations constantly battle over power, money, and prestige. These organizations are: Fenrir's Fang, Delta Technologies, Dragon's Chain, Lightwing Alliance, and the Blackthorn Corporation. Each organization has a specialty. Fenrir's Fang has a large number of well-trained followers, Delta Technologies specializes in advanced super-soldiers, and Dragon's Chain has fantical, super-religious followers and advanced weaponry. And what do the Lightwing Alliance and the Blackthorn Corporation have? Why, super-powered founders, of course. What else?

Anyway, players make characters that are "minor sensitives", i.e. people with fledgeling superpowers. They choose an organization to fight for. In the old version, players could only be in the Blackthorn Corporation, and had to pick a founder to work under.

It can be found here. The old version can be found here.

The new version provdes examples of:

  • Pocket Dimension: The kleptomaniac Syd has an invisible one right behind her back, which she uses constantly.

The old version provides examples of:

  • Badass: The sniper Fransisco Cortez simply personifies badassery.
  • Badass Normal: Ned has none of the powers the Associates have, but, so far, he has shown himself to be pretty Badass.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The Collective, from the Outbreak mission. The creator put that in just to see how much people were willing to accept.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Fransisco Cortez.
  • Deus ex Machina: Why did Dean have a spare sonic screwdriver in his pocket? How many does he have? Anyway, he used it to try and leave Li's laboratory. Li put him in his place.
  • Fragile Speedster: Nathan Weuber.
  • MacGuffin: Dean's fucking sonic screwdriver. After he uses it to reattach his dismembered tongue, Cari (who cut off the tongue in the first place) has this to say:
    Cari Rose: God damn it, I don't cut out tongues just so that people can use their MacGuffins to put them back! (She grabs the sonic screwdriver using telekinesis, then snaps it) "And don't you dare pull out another fucking MacGuffin to fix that MacGuffin, because I swear to God next time I am cutting your balls off along with your tongue and throwing them over the edge of the roof. God damn.
  • Made of Iron: After Dean failed to kill Seth, he had so much crap done to him that he should have either died or become a shivering, agony-filled wreck. He (in this order) had a gun smashed into his head so hard that it dented, had his arm snapped, was punched really hard in the face seven times, was shot in the foot, had his tongue cut out(although he put it back), was slammed into an operating table by a pissed-off, 6'6" Li, underwent painful, intensive surgery while conscious, and he's somehow still fine, acting as if nothing had happened to him. His Endurance level is 2, which is below average. He should have been completely broken by the time he was shot in the foot.
  • Smug Snake: Dean Wilson, oh so much.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: Warlock.
  • The Speechless: Sou Marin.
  • Split Personality: Antionette Thora switches between a very arrogant personality and a very timid one whenever she is hit.
  • The Scrappy: Dean Wilson. Has only been on for part of one mission, and has already managed to piss off every founder except Kit, as well as most of the Associates. Used to be Nathan Weuber, but Nathan got better after the whole resurrection business.

Both versions provide examples of:
