Welcome to Earth’s Chosen Heroes Online (ECHO for short). We are a mature, literate roleplay based in the world of post-season 7 Buffy, post-season 5 Angel and the Marvel Avengers movies. Our focus is to create interesting plots and write our favorite characters in an environment that focuses on friendliness, community and quality of writing.
Months have passed Loki’s invasion of the earth. The Avengers have gone their separate ways for now, each dealing with their own personal struggles. The world has turned on as normal. Bad things happen every day, but that’s what the Slayer Organization is for - to deal with them. Things that go bump in the night are nothing new. One day though, things changed. It began with a vampire accidentally discovering that when the sun streamed through the small gap in the doorway of his crypt, it didn’t harm him. After some experimentation, he realized he was invulnerable to it. Across the world, other vampires began discovering the same thing. Some kept the secret to themselves, realizing they could use it as a hunting advantage over others of their kind, but some told their friends. Those friends told other friends, and word spread across the globe. Work for the Slayer Organization is more difficult than ever, especially as so many slayers are still new and are still learning about their powers and the history behind their destiny.
Panic began to break out across the globe as people were attacked, killed, and drained of blood on a daily basis. The government released a warning, claiming that a new form of super virus was causing the events, but the Slayers knew better. With sunlight no longer on their side, they now work around the clock to distinguish and kill preying vampires. With a new force threatening mankind while people are dying and being turned into vampires in huge numbers, S.H.I.E.L.D has decided to call The Avengers back into action to also deal with the threat. Since the creation of the first slayer, the line of slayers has operated outside of the law and without ties to any government agency. When Giles discovers that S.H.I.E.L.D are also dealing with the threat, he is forced to face a difficult decision. To extend the hand of friendship to the Avengers Initiative or to allow the two groups to keep operating seperately. Ultimately he decides that the two groups can do more good together than apart.
Now, the two groups are operating together. Thor admits that Loki has escaped from his Asgardian prison and that the timing of the events seems awfully suspicious. Killing the vampires is only part of the solution. Now that they can move in the daylight, the vampires can turn humans at any time and they are repopulating just as quickly as they are being killed. Possibly faster. If the sunlight problem isn’t solved, eventually, the vampires will take over and the world will truly fall victim to subjugation. Not only must the group continue to quell the vampire threat and keep the world from finding out about the supernatural, but they must also try to find out what caused sunlight to be uneffective against vampires and find a way to reverse it.
