inFAMOUS: Beyond the Beast
Forewarning - This roleplay contains spoilers to the end of inFAMOUS 2. If you haven't yet played or beaten inFAMOUS 2 (and you care about the ending not getting spoiled) then you should stop right here and go do that first. Otherwise? Enjoy.


New Marais was a bustling city situated on the eastern coast in Louisiana. It had the old world feel, large Victorian buildings with terraces hanging off providing ample space for people to party of socialize, while being dotted with conveniences of the 21st century like high electricity transformer stations and satellite dishes. The city also had a healthy dose of mysticism imported from slaves who brought African tribal shaman rituals along when they were forcibly relocated. Further infused with the Cajun cuisine. All blended into one city that created a rich character of it's own.

Then Empire City happened and the world changed. People with powers started to appear. The most prominent case was the man they later referred to as the Demon of Empire City. He was supposedly responsible for the death of several thousand people in a single attack, but official death tolls were never revealed. Though after the attack, he vanished for two weeks. And in that time the city rotted and decayed. The goverment quarantined the city but it was too late.

People all over the world were afraid. They'd never seen anything like this before. The government couldn't easily brush this off as just a terrorist attack, not with the "Voice of Survival" making things worse reporting from inside Empire City.

Then the Demon reappeared. And things just got worse from there. A lot of the details of what happened were sketchy at best and things were unclear. People gave conflicting reports of what happened over the next 7 days. Some people claimed to have seen him healing the wounded just by touching them. Others claimed to have witnessed him laughing while shocking bystanders.

After another month the quarantine was lifted and people were allowed to start leaving the city. It was then that what people called "The Beast" appeared. It was easily 4 stories tall with skin as black as coal, with veins of lava. It appeared from seemingly nowhere and attacked the city. They say the Demon of Empire City took a shot at killing it... but he failed and was nearly killed in the process. The Beast then destroyed Empire City.

It was at this point that the Demon of Empire City fled to New Marais. People don't know why exactly, there are plenty of rumours. The most popular one being that it was simply because New Marai was far away from Empire City, far enough to give the Demon time to lick his wounds and prepare for another bout.

Though the Demon wasn't the only thing that came to New Marais. Before he showed up a strange new sickness had begun to take hold. Doctors seemed unable to do much of anything to abate it. Meanwhile others began to start developing their own powers.

Then the Beast arrived too. And if that weren't bad enough, the Beast and Demon joined forces. Now the Beast wanders America, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. Though it also appears that every place he visits also leaves more and more people with powers...

The number of us with powers are growing and the number of people without powers is falling. The government is in shambles now that any average person can wield more power than a tank. Calling in the armed guard, what would formerly have been a major event, is like a joke now for us.

We have the power now. So the only question is
"What are you going to do with it?"

Thank you.
