Long lost dreams of heroes plague your mind, all but ash under your burned feet. What once was is forever gone, your childhood curiosity just another body to lay to rest. There will be no one to save you this time. Heroes…do not exist.
You hold onto that thought, bitter, bending, but not broken. And move on. Until, years later, a job catches your interest - as caretaker for a young, disabled girl. Wanting to right what once went wrong you apply for the job…and stumble into the world of the Gifted and Graceless.
They are the heroes we need, not those we want.
A world in which supernatural abilities have just been discovered is a dangerous one. To keep those powers under control only disabled people are equipped with them, chosen to become more independent while also serving as a shell with reduced amounts of power. But is it nothing more than charity, or does something more sinister lurk in the shadows?
Where the blind see through seeing-eye dogs and the deaf learn to read thoughts everything seems possible. And everything might just be enough to turn the term ‘hero’ upside down.
Caretaker, you go by many names.
Choose your gender, sexuality and personality. In this conflict of (in)dependance, where will your opinions lay? With which ease do you approach your newfound patchwork family? Is there a Gift that you see, or has society fallen from Grace?
Hey! Cirrocumulus here, longtime lurker of three years. I finally decided to make an account of my own, pitch an idea that has been on my mind for a while and actively interact with the CoG community.
My plan is to create a game that focuses on character interaction, the fine line between dependence and independence. And also superhero shenanigans. I am looking for a way to push people into the limelight that normally do not get the chance to shine. Your MC is not a disabled person, though most of the characters they will interact with are. I love grey and want to stay away from a black and white perspective. As such, each character will have their own opinions and those may differ drastically. (Even when it comes to how they handle their disabilities and powers.) I hope I can carefully craft characters that you can care about. =)
