[WP] You work at a hospital. Outside a terminal patient’s room, someone tries to enter. You stop them, “Sorry, family only.” They give you a strange look, as do those nearby. “You can see me?” They ask, summoning a scythe from thin air. You just told Death they couldn’t claim a soul.
[WP] The Elder Gods have awoken from their slumber, but instead of causing havoc and destroying the world, they become more focused on winning bingo, talking about the good old days, and complaining about all those young kids on their phones.
[WP] Your hobby is keeping an eye out for people who look like they might be important, whispering in their ear that you know their "secret", and escaping dramatically. Unknown to you, entire secret societies tremble in fear of the "Whisperer".

[WP] One day, everybody suddenly gets superpowers, but not you. After a while, you noticed a notification popping up after doing mundane tasks. You just leveled up.

[WP] You're the Demigood of pain and suffering. In the old days this meant war, today it means slow internet. You're on your quest to prevent the introduction of 5G.
[WP]: "Why are they still shooting? They know their captain is dead, and there is no hope of rescuing her." "Well, my friend, it appears you are about to experience the human activity known as 'revenge'."
[WP] you’re eating at a nice restaurant alone when suddenly time seems to stop. You can still move freely but everyone else is completely frozen and unaware of it. Except for one of the waiters who laughs maniacally as he goes around pickpocketing everyone. He hasn’t noticed you moving yet
