This is my attempt at a roleplay scenario...
These are simple, hypothetical challenges. You will come in as a regular human, either as a trained individual, or a fresh newbie. Real-world physics and biology apply; exaggerated concepts will only apply to the features of each challenge. Playing with the idea of steroids is allowed, but keep in mind that steroids in real life focus on recovery speed, not a sudden grant of strength. Your health and knowledge on how to use steroids will apply. Fictional forms of drugs are not allowed. Your training may be inspired by fiction, while obeying our world’s definition of possible.
The rewards are physical abilities. Apologies if that doesn’t interest you.
Challenge No. 1: Shoulder/Carry the Heaviest Atlas Stone
The stone is a custom made implement that appears to be like the average atlas stone, however it weighs ~1,200 lbs.
Support equipment (wraps, a belt, lifting vest, and high-tech extensions) is prohibited. Altering the stone is not allowed. Tacky and chalk is allowed.
Set-up time is 1 hour, and 30 minutes. You must hold the stone on your shoulder for at least 10 seconds before dropping it. If carrying the stone was chosen, then you must walk 400 meters with the atlas stone. You will receive a bonus reward for shouldering the stone clean (in one motion); carrying the stone for an additional 400 meters will earn you the bonus reward, as well.
Reward: Supernatural Strength (Type III)
Bonus Reward: Absolute Strength+Raw Power
Challenge No. 2: Defeat the Strongest Gorilla
This gorilla looks moderately normal. Within, it was modified to be extremely passionate about combat, similar to how some humans are. It was trained by the best to master its primate body and mind.
Support equipment (Gloves, pads, clothes, firearms, and high-tech extensions) is prohibited. Melee weapons longer than 35 inches are prohibited. You may not use more than two weapons. Toxins are prohibited. Light hand and feet wraps are allowed.
Both combatants must finish within 1 hour, and 30 minutes. You will be provided with weapon options beforehand, if you haven’t brought your own; you may only pick two, and the gorilla has full freedom to snatch your weapons during the fight. Completion time is not important. You will be given a bonus for ending the fight in one blow.
Reward: Supernatural Combat
Bonus Reward: Absolute Combat+Raw Power
So I feel as though the range of enhanced strength and speed are too broad. Let me explain my thinking for enhanced strength, the page says “User has strength beyond peak human level in their verse and superior to that of a normal member of their species. They are able to lift heavy objects such as cars, trucks, and buses. Users are also able to lift or move extreme heavy objects such as bulldozers, etc.”
Cars (including pickup trucks) weight very from 2,000-4,000 pounds
A semi Truck (without trailer) can weigh 10,000 to 25,000 pounds
A city bus can weigh anywhere from 25,000-40,000 pounds
A bulldozer can weigh upwards of 100,000 pounds
According to the page a person that’s enhanced could be able to lift any of these but characters like Captain America to be able to bench press a car to characters like Luke cage who can lift a semi truck with a fully loaded trailer with little to no difficulty could be in the same category of enhanced but only if they were levels to it like supernatural strength and speed
What I’m saying in short is that enhanced speed and strength are too broad and there should be levels to them like with supernatural speed and supernatural strength
Edit: I understand on enhanced condition there’s a type 1 and type 2 I’m just saying there should be an official type 1 and 2 on enhanced speed and strength
