Superheroes meets dimension travelling Doctor Who/Sliders mixed with Lovecraft.
“This world, our world, is like an island. One island in a sea of possibilities. That sea…the Sargasso Sea…can take us anywhere. Almost anywhere. That sea has an edge I call the Barrier. The person who crosses the Barrier gains ultimate power over energy and matter. I mean to cross that barrier and not you or anyone from the Uphold is going to stop me.” – Professor Prometheus
Last night when you went to sleep you were a completely normal person. When you open your eyes, you find yourself in an incredibly sophisticated “station” in an astral sea that exists between dimensions. The signs here seem to indicate you are not the first, that other human explorer have lived here and left suddenly and without reason. They left evidence of what they called this place – the Uphold.
The Uphold is like an organic space station – possessed of a powerful though non-speaking AI that is capable of at least reading thoughts, equipped with a viewer that can look out like a camera lens onto any scene on any Earth, and with somehow the ability to teleport you anywhere in existence.
You aren’t quite you anymore either. You think the same, but your body is different. Different and powerful. Posessed of abilities beyond that of mortal man you possibly aren’t quite even human anymore and you certainly have the ability to bend the laws of physics.
You also aren’t the only ones to have come here. There was a scientist here before you and in his journals you have found that he has become a powerful being now known as Professor Prometheus and that he has discovered a way to become a God – and destroy all you have ever known or loved in the process.
You are now an Upholder, possessed of the only means of stopping the power mad Professor Prometheus, and judging by his last note it looks like you don’t have much time to do it.
