Fun with Sentai/Power Rangers - done serious (1 or more F)
« on: April 28, 2013, 12:25:15 PM »
[/URL]

A re-imagening of Sentai or Power Rangers to have a darker and more realistic tone.
The approach and style is up to debate but the piece of art i put up in this post might give a clue on what I have in mind. More realistic hightech technology for one while at the same staying true to certain motives,stereotypes, archetypes and story structures of the genre. Preferable a re-imagening of the old school 'theme' but not persay. I'm certainly up for a different approach if the ideas appeal to me.

Maybe we could make this a group roleplay.

I'd like my character to be the pink one.

Ok. I can use either the white or yellow ranger, or both. I'll take Scorpina as my villainess character. If you want, I can play Rita Repulsa as well?

Whitey can pop up later. I'll only play the Green Ranger much later myself.
Though it does amuse me to have Green and White be seperate Rangers. And I'm also toying with the idea of keeping Green evil longer.

After all... evil Rangers are fun ;)

Put it in the near future? Perhaps humanity is constructing a lunar base and things go awry upon finding the so-called 'dumpster' (which is not a dumpster and neither looks like one... the naming was always odd)

Shall I perhaps make a thread in the group section for this since already 2 of you are interested?

A near future setting seems nice. It does seem better as a group thread.

I'm interested in playing the part of the white spandexed warrior :)

Also, since this is a reimagining of the series/genre we don't have to stick to the "official" heroes and script do we? I'd be more interested in playing something that's closer to the original Kibaranger's abilities (sound control), than just another Tommy.

Well those wielding the 'powers' will all be selfmade chars so you don't have to be 'Tommy' so to speak.

As for special powers. Those can be integrated if we find a good 'tech' reason for it. Though probably themed with the animals they have or just some 'support power'. Doesn't always have to be an 'in your face' power. It might be more interesting to keep that aspect 'subtler'. Like say the ability to read aura's, create a forcefield or telepathy.

Hello.  Is this intended to include Kink elements or more like a straight storyline RP?

Both. The focus is storytelling and action but adult scenes, romance, sexuality (kinky or vanilla) are allowed.
As long as it's not 'absurd' like 'attack of the Porn Movie Monster'. :)

Okay thanks, probably not my kind of kinky then :P can't decide if I'd want to do a regular story inspired PR RP (REVERSE ACRONYM  ATTACK!) without indulging myself here and there :P thanks anyways.  (Just not enough Power Rangers RP going on though *sigh*)

And what exactly would you see as kinky?

It's pretty detailed in my ons and offs... which 'should' be linked to in my signature.  For some reason it's not in my last post but I spot the link up there on the first post I dropped here :) .

Some of those things are possible. But it's your call my dear. You don't need to do anything you're not convinced about doing.

I do enough story inspired rp these days that I actually think It would be pretty fun... even if I never get a chance to do something of a kinky nature I still have fond memories of playing power rangers on the playground as a kid with a big group of kids xD

I noticed you have a white ranger, but that she's the Alien ranger.

Would it be possible to play as a female variant of the white tiger ranger?  If not I could pick up yellow.

No she's not 'the alien' Ranger. She's basically the White Tiger Ranger except here more a support char.
I agreed it with Sapphire so as to give the 'main team' some more focus.
I myself will be playing Green and several of the baddies and the monsters. So my own Ranger char (the Green one) will only pop up much later too.
Ranger stories best follow the main structure. Establish the main five then work out the 'special cases' like an evil ranger or an oddball one.
Though if you have your heart set on the White one. You can contact Sapphire and ask her if you can have that powerset. Up to her though.
I can coordinate with her to give her Dulcea/Mentor character some other power.

Nah that's alright.  If she's the tiger ranger than that's what she is :P I just recognized the name as the white alien ranger.

I can be yellow.  Really like the design in the picture up to for yellow anyway.

Silly me of course you hadn't realized it. This is the old solo thread *facepalms* sorry my dear.
:) here's the current thread and i'll update the char list to tag you as the future Yellow Sabertooth Tiger Ranger.
