The Invincible Hero Academy will be opening its doors soon.

We believe in the power of others to excite, inspire and advocate for positive change in our world. Our goal is to prepare the next generation of super-powered individuals to meet the practice and policy challenges of Paragon City and the world.

If you’re looking to make a difference in how super-powered individuals of all backgrounds and circumstances grow and thrive, we have a program designed for you.


Established heroes and superpowered individuals, this is a call to help aid those seeking to learn the ins and outs of the heroic lifestyle.

The students of the academy, our Proteges, vary in their needs. Some simply need guidance to put them on the right path, while others may need help learning to master their powerful abilities.

Mentors are required to pick one night a month to hold their class. This can be extended to twice monthly or even weekly. It is up to the mentor to provide the material needed for their Proteges.



OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

Proteges:
  • You are encouraged to RP and team together without the presence of a mentor. It's our hope that this part of the Invincible team will achieve some semblance of autonomy with their Mentors serving as the occasional guide and sometimes quest-giver.
  • Additionally, you have the option of turning off XP gains between classes for a more immersive learning experience, but by no means is this required. The only true requirement is the acknowledgment that your character needs aid in one way or another, even if they may personally deny it at every turn.

Mentors:
  • Your responsibility for this role-play experiment is to provide content for yourself and your IC students to explore. This can be as mundane as a classroom setting teaching the history of Paragon City (though I doubt many may repeatedly sign up for these), to creating Danger Room style missions in the AE building.
  • Utilize all of the City of Heroes to your advantage. Field trips to far-reaching locations under the excuse of learning about lore, only to have it go wrong when there's a surprise attack or civilians need your help via using radio missions.
  • To those applying to be mentors, you will be given a brief interview via Discord. During this interview, we will discuss your ideas before deliberating privately on your application. Note: While there is the potential for every applicant to be "hired" as a mentor, this may not be the case. We reserve the right to refuse any applicant for any reason.

Mentors, please sign up below using the following information

Mentor's Real Name (If it is publicly available)

Working on this, i am free most times between 6pm EST and 1am EST weekdays and all day on weekends. Currently playing with the idea of a class after my weekly MSR so about 7pm EST

Required supplies for your Mentor's classes (If any apply)
Nothing I wont provide my self. However recommendations for various AE arcs to take the students on as either assignments or simulations are appreciated.

Additional Notes:
The goal will be to focus on practical application of the student's abilities but Darien's experience and dedication will likely result in a lot of after class assistance. Darien's role with Vanguard will occasionally be used as an explanation for absences when necessary, it will how ever allow him to give insight into the inner workings of Vanguard.

Days and Times you would like to host classes:
I will more than likely either do this on a weekday afternoon running sometime between 3pm and 5pm, although I don't expect it to last that long and I know attendance could be rough for that timeframe. Or I can try to plan out a week night where I can stay up later than normal(which isn't a huge problem). Weekends are too random for me because my wife makes the plans and I just go with whatever that plan is lol.

Days and Times you would like to host classes.
I would like to host an every-other-week class on a Friday or Saturday evening or late afternoon.

Required supplies for your Mentor's classes (If any apply)
A notebook, something to write with, something to color with, and a good attitude!

Additional Notes:
I wanted to bring a class to the academy that is focused on some of the less talked about and often fun things that Heroes can face while on the job. While the majority of the content so far has been serious in nature, I wanted to take on a more light-hearted approach for people to work on their characters' hero identity. It will be role-play heavy and I was hoping to bring in volunteers from the SG and coalitions to act as actors for some of the classes. I think it would be good for group involvement and to boost our student numbers.
