I've been thinking about dropping my name in the hat in this one so to speak in terms of providing a planetary 'menace' for the heroes/sailor warriors. As I'm actually not familiar about the sailor squad ... at all aside from a handful of episodes I saw when I was a girl (if anyone remembers the 'Doom and Gloom' girls that were recruited to divide and conquer? hehe... yeah... that's about the era of sailor moon where I saw a few episodes.)
Of course, in regards to Marvel... I know a bit of what I've seen in regards to movies or a few shows but again... fairly limited knowledge in the subject (While I could certainly find an interest in looking it up...)
Normally I would avoid joining a group RP where I know so little about it, especially when cannon characters are so keenly 'familiar' to the players taking an interest. In this particular case... one remark that has me scratching the side of my jaw and wondering why not apply for an alien race aspect is this particular definition put forth by Quill...
A race of aliens is heading for Earth, aliens with a habit of swiftly consuming all resources on the planet they find and killing all inhabitants before they leave to find their next victim planet.
Both the Sailor Soldiers and the Marvel heroes are alerted to the threat and band together for the common cause of protecting the planet they love... perhaps even finding some romance along the way...
Quill... Dane... As it's been made clear the selection for the leader will be a little more particular in terms of the direction you go... I am going to send a PM to each of you. It's almost going to be a 'marketing ad agency' pitch for an idea for an enemy race that I'm thinking would fit these terms quite interestingly.
As the alien-invader role of an all-consuming-race is the only part of this I'd really be able to play with any level of 'true' understanding, that's the only role I'll apply for. If it turns out to be something that goes against the direction you'd like to take it, then let me know. I'm not considering a very 'emotional' or 'angry' alien race so much as one that's developed and evolved beyond what they were 'supposed' to be. Once useful for serving their 'home planet' highly evolved and intelligent inhabitants... a triggered event brings them to become an incredible menace.
Anyway... I'd love to private message you guys the pitch because the idea is that if I put it here, I don't want to discourage someone else from putting up their own alien race or menace idea. I don't want people who've joined the RP but might not like the idea to decide to leave it or (someone else not to join it...) on account of not liking the idea for this race.
For that reason... I'm going to PM both of the GMs first... and if they like it then I am more than happy to come back here and paste the pitch :)
