Go To

In 2012 a meteor shower rained down on Earth. While the meteorites contained a valuable new energy source called Xiterra. Earth began to turn into a wasteland. However, scientists found that Xiterra could be used to replenish the Earth. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be enough on it's own. Meanwhile, some humans began to display incredible new abilities...

Symmetry is a play-by-post rpg set in the Institute for Super Humans located on Quelle Island. Students are sorted into being either heroes or villains, and the energies they give off are used to fuel Xiterra. But at the end of one school year, communications to the outside world are lost, trapping the students and islanders on Quelle Island. Now the students have to spend a whole summer together with little to separate the villains and heroes, unaware that something big is about to go down.
