Dragon Ball E
« on: October 10, 2014, 01:25:29 PM »
"Everything that's been said here today has been transmitted to my two Saiyan comrades, deep in Outer space. When they learn that I've been killed, they'll come to avenge me. They'll wipe you out. You and every living thing on this planet. You won't have a chance, you're as good as dead already. One year, one short year." - The last words of the first Saiyan invader, Raditz.


In the year on March 21st, 2012 Earth had its first confirmed alien visitor. What appeared to be a remarkably human looking male identified itself as Raditz and was searching for 'Kakarot,' an entity that has still not been identified. Raditz proved himself to be on Earth with hostile intentions when he proceeded to go on an extremely destructive warpath, before being confronted by five individuals whom were able to do what quickly assembled Earth military forces could not do. They killed the alien invader, but not before he gave a dire warning. The five individuals went to prepare.

Now it is February 15th, 2013. The Saiyans are early. On their arrival they instantly obliterate Johannesburg, killing over a million people. Now on a dusty plain the only five people that stand a chance prepare to face off against the invaders. They've spent eleven months preparing. They are not prepared.

*****

This is a game I tried running some time and and I would like to do again.

Okay, so the plan here is an AU DBZ game set in modern day real Earth where 5 people have come together to fight the infamous Nappa & Vegeta. I'll be GMing the game and will be using an invisible system. You never need worry about it, you just RP and I'll determine how actions are resolved behind the wizard's curtain. You'll all be assigned a Power Level based on your application, but you won't be informed what it is until a scouter picks it up. This is currently planned to be a stand alone game, resolving the 'Saiyan Saga' but depending on how it goes it might continue.

A couple of notes:
  • There is no Goku: This game doesn't have a Goku, you're the heroes. If a Saiyan pod landed on Earth, the baby inside died or was lost in obscurity and never became Goku.
  • You can manipulate Ki: Regardless of your characters origins, no matter what country your character comes from, they have learned to manipulate ki (even if they refer to it as something else). All characters can fly, project ki and 'feel' the ki output of others, and reduce their own ki output.
  • Players will need to make decisions on when to conserve strength and when to go all out. Characters can get fatigued or exhausted if they max out too much, but can also be outclasses to varying degrees if not putting in enough effort. In a similar manner that Freiza's output was given a percentage of his maximum, players will tag their post with what percentage they are using for that post. Increasing output by more then 5% in one post requires time dedicated to doing so.
  • All PCs will be human.
  • PM Applications only please


Character App:
Name:
Age:
Nationality:
Height:
Weight:
Appearance: If you are using more then one image, please take one main image and put any others in spoiler tags under the main.

Combat You have 20 points to spend to determine your characters proficiency with any selected martial art/combat style. The costs are as follows
Basic 1 Point :: Trained 2 Points :: Experienced 3 Points :: Expert 4 Points :: Master 5 Points :: World Authority 6 Points
You may have one at level 6. As it comes up so often, please remember 'MMA' isn't a martial art. Its martial arts mixed together. Its in the name.

Signature Attacks: Anything from a physical combo or ki attack. Once again you have 20 points to distribute. More points require more ki investment or cause greater physical strain, but also increase effectiveness. On character approval I will give you a bonus/penalty for at least one signature attack. Please just describe what the ability is, don't include its result (ex, 'powerful enough to destroy a city').

App sent. I really like the look of this game. It's the only DBZ AU that I've ever actually been interested in.

Will be PMing you my sheet as soon as I get the mini-Jag off to school. I liked the idea the first time you posted it, but had to drop out due to a lot of things that are no longer an issue. ^..^

Book marked. I remember this, sad that it didn't go far. Would this JUST be the Saiyan saga, or would we move on to later parts of DBZ afterwards?

 I recall Primarch saying before that those left alive would have the chance to go to Namek and bring everyone back.

Given the power levels we had last time..... Well, let's just say I'm hoping we get some training at King Kai :-P

 Though, I'm hoping I make it in again, too.

You want King Kai's training? Doesn't that require death? :P

 This is DBZ, land of no one stays dead unless you choose it and kingdom of death means getting stronger.

You have a valid point.

Hmm... seems like the good guys gain more strength from dying than the bad guys though. Old Kai is biased :P

4 characters now approved, awaiting edits to apps for some more.

And yes if the game does well we shall continue the story to Namek, though I'll request a co-GM to assist with the branching story and ideally allow me to also take part. I'd rather enjoy taking part.

We'll be starting on Monday at the very latest, I'll get IC started and those that are approved can get in on the first round of posting while the apps currently competing for the last 2 spots are sorted out.

Any questions before we begin?

Well nobody in the group will be starting at that level, but the groups average PL will be higher than the Z fighters at that point.

There's a whole book about that line.

Dragon Ball Z 'It's Over 9,000!' When Worldviews Collide

It's actually pretty interesting. It goes into great detail about why the idea of power levels and such were introduced into the series and about mistranslations and all sorts of stuff. There is so much, rather deep and thoughtful, information about Goku and Vegeta.

You don't really need to know a great deal. The game is set on our 'Earth' as opposed to the planet the show is set in. Not knowing about the different alien races wouldn't even matter because the characters have met one, which was the first alien to ever come to Earth. So you as a player would be discovering everything as your character does. Glancing over a wiki would tell you just about everything you really need to know.
