Dragon Ball: A new World (Recruitment)
« on: December 26, 2017, 12:11:42 am »
Alright, E!  I've made attempts at this in the past via other mediums and I've always come up short on interest and/or activity.  I figured I'd at least ask around here and see what I could get in response.  As the name of the thread suggests this is about Dragonball originally created by Akira Toriyama with a new take.  I'd like to approach this as an alternate universe retelling of the story starting all the way at the beginning.  Perhaps it's not Goku that landed on Earth or the saiyan never hit their head.  Maybe the Red Ribbon Army weren't really the bad guys?  A chance for us to place our own characters and ideas into the mix. 

What I want from you all is to see who's interested and what kind of game you'd want to play.  Freeform or system and if using a system what's your preference?  Want it locked to a small group or have a more open sandbox style of play?  What types of adult play would you all be comfortable with and how smut-focused would you want the RP to be?

I'd like to also get people's input on limits on sexual content of the RP and where we could place the threads. 



Player characters:
Matthew Shaw
Name: Matthew Shaw
Race: Human
Age: 21
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Straight
Personality: Emotional, headstrong and aloof are all words that would describe Matt fairly well. He's the type to let his emotions get the best of him when pushed and thus act without thinking. That being said it's hard to crack his seemingly care free nature and get him upset. He acts like nothing bothers him even if things do. He takes things seriously but normally acts as if everything is a joke because he understands that people need levity in serious situations or the world around them might seem like its crashing down. The type to never give his troubles to others while constantly taking on the burdens of his friends, Matt is quick to try and make friends and slow to let them go.
History:
At the early age of six, Matt was taken by his uncle from Yunzabit Heights when his parents fell deathly ill from a sickness that modern medicine couldn't cure. His uncle, the famous adventurer Arron Shaw decided to dedicate the rest of his life to finding seven magical spheres called Dragon Balls, rumored to grant a single wish with each use of the orbs. Together he and Matt traveled the world to find the items in question, often turning up short but always finding clues that would no doubt lead them closer and closer to the dragon balls. During his travels, Matt learned street fighting from his grandfather who was a championship winning street fighter in Ireland, quickly mastering the skill so that he wouldn't be a burden in the event of danger. Matt took to fighting like a fish in water and his mastery of the single martial art wasn't enough. Soon he was learning from any master he could in any given area he happened to find himself in during his quest for the mythical Dragon Balls.

By the time Matt had turned five, he and his Uncle had collected six of the seven balls and in order to get the last ball, the two had to compete in a fighting tournament held on a small island off the coast of Japan, the grand prize being the Dragon Ball and a set of clothes that would change at the wearers command. Both Matt and Arron entered the competition and in the end, the two had to fight one another. After a fierce battle, neither one of their prideful mentalities allowing them to simply give up, Matt revealed he had created his own form of Martial Arts that blended all the strengths he had picked up from various masters. Using the Yami Akuma style Matt had driven his Uncle into a corner, one that forced Arron to reveal that he had an ulterior motive to finding the dragon balls. Arron, a member of a group called the Red Ribbon Army unleashed a powerful blast of ki that knocked Matt out of the ring, and went on to steal the Dragon Balls, wishing that he would never age again, gaining immortality in the process.

The Dragon Balls spread around the world again, effectively damning Matt's parents, crushing his hopes and dreams, and teaching Matt that the only person you can really trust is yourself. Left broken, and defeated, Matt continued his quest for the dragon balls so that he could undo the wish his Uncle had made while also studying under other masters in the hope of finding a way to keep Arron from unleashing any sort of true terror on the world if Matt couldn't find the Dragon Balls.

Flan


Name: Flan
Race: Alien (specific species unknown)
Age: 19
Gender: female
Sexuality: pansexual

Personality: Flan is a kind, fairly lax and laid back girl. She keeps a carefree attitude about most things and tends not to give a lot of thought or worry to most issues, preferring to just "go with the flow" as it were. There are two big exceptions to this however, things in which she can become very spirited and intense. The first is food. With her power incentivizing a heavy diet she's developed a love of all kinds of culinary delights, and can be easily motivated to pretty much any task if food is offered as a reward. The second is fighting. Having grown up under a renown martial artist, Flan was instilled with an adoration for combat from an early age, and is always down for a good fight, whether as a participant or a spectator.

History: Flan is the adopted daughter of the "great hero" and martial arts master Rocc E. Rhode. As the story goes, Rocc was facing a mighty dragon that had been terrorizing a local village, and after slaying the beast with his bare hands he discovered the baby Flan sleeping in a "nest" of treasure. It was assumed that she was the hybrid offspring of the dragon and one of the maidens that had been given over to it as a sacrifice, and feeling pity for her Rocc adopted her and took her under his wing, convincing the people that even a monster could be raised into a valiant and disciplined fighter under his teachings. Having grown up under his guidance she would become a strong yet kindhearted young woman, yet another example of Rocc's greatness.

Of course almost all of this story was a lie, as are most tales of the fighter's great deeds. While there had in fact been a dragon, and Rocc had boasted his ability to slay it, he did not in fact defeat it with his bare hands. In fact the moment he came face to face with the hulking monster Rocc was about to flee in fear, but at that exact instant a strange space pod came crashing down to Earth, smashing through the dragon's mountain lair and just so happening to hit the dragon itself, tearing straight through it's body and killing it instantly. Inside the tiny pod was a baby Flan, and with a mixture of worry for how the alien baby would be treated by the public and a selfish desire for fame and fortune, Rocc hid away the alien ship and fabricated the entire tale of defeating the beast himself. Though while the story may have been a lie, it all turned out for the best in the end, with Flan growing up happy and loved by pretty much everyone, rather than feared and experimented on like she might have if people had known she came from beyond the stars.

Weapons/Equipment: none
Techniques:
Caloric Conversion
While all living creatures convert the calories gained from food into energy to fuel themselves, Flan's alien biology makes this process unique in two ways. Firstly the conversion is much more efficient and dramatic than a human's, not only allowing her to use calories to fuel her bodily functions, but also convert it into pure excess ki. Secondly she is able to directly tap into this bodily function at will, meaning she can store up fat in her body and then at will rapidly burn it off for a huge boost in ki and power. Because of this Flan's weight and body shape can vary quite dramatically depending on how much energy she currently has stored up, though she tends to maintain a high calorie diet and keep herself on the larger side so that she always has a reserve of extra energy on hand if needed.

Stone Crushing Combination
A secret technique developed by Flan's father Rocc and passed down to his daughter. Starts with a powerful blow directly to the opponent's crotch, then "follows the rise of inertia" in the foe's body with a flurry of strikes to the chest and finishes with an uppercut to the jaw that sends the opponent flying (note, this only sends the opponent flying when performed by Flan). With this legendary technique Rocc has won several high profile tournaments, the reason for it's effectiveness being quite apparent to most, though he claims that it actually attacks pressure points and "redirects the flow of ki up the body to debilitate the opponent", an excuse that has managed to get around most accusations of blatant cheating. 

Dragon's Breath
Channeling Ki into her belly Flan is able to fire a beam of pure energy from her mouth, the size and power varying based on how many calories she burns to fuel it.

Al "Cool" Hall
Name: Al “Cool” Hall
Race: Coyote Man
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Bisexual
Personality: Arrogant and eager to prove himself to others, Al hides a deep insecurity behind a wall of bravado and aggression. While this has led him to making great strides in his training, it also means he has great difficulty in reaching out to others for help, especially if they are his equal or better in regards to skill level. The result is an intense, aloof fighter with a chip on his shoulder.
History: Once nothing more than an orphaned street urchin in Pinap City, it was when the young coyote tried to pick the pocket of the famous Master Buuz that his life changed forever. Master Buuz raised the scared, angry pup instead of turning him over to the authorities, and taught him his own Drunken Fist technique as Al grew older. Yet he never truly got over the fear that came with fending for himself on the streets, and when his master passed away, he felt as though he hadn’t earned the old man’s legacy.

Now having heard of a World Tournament on the horizon, he’s traveled far to prove to himself that he was worth the old master’s time. Maybe then he might find the answers he seeks regarding his parents and who his family is...

Weapons/Equipment: Al’s claws and teeth are as sharp as any knife. He carries a flask or three of strong sake on him at all times.
Techniques:
More to come over time.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Buuz Hound: By consuming alcohol, Al can refocus his ki to temporarily make his body stronger, tougher, and more limber at the cost of his reflexes. See below.
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Death Howl: Al concentrates his ki before sending out a blast that takes the form of a ghostly coyote to tear into his foe.

Weaknesses: While his tolerance is greater than that of a normal person, too much alcohol burns out his ki, weakening him and effectively turning his own technique against him.

Noodles
Name: Noodles
Race: Gynoid
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Sexuality: Pansexual

Personality: With a super advanced computer for brain Noodles is a very intelligent girl capable of solving complex problems and equations in fractions of seconds although how body works is still a mystery for her, she should be able to generate blasts, rays and other forms of energy and to read others ki and measure their physical and ki strength if only she knew how to do so. She is also very innocent and friendly and extremely naive and her way of thinking is very simple and straightforward so she she sometimes comes up with solutions she doesn't really how to accomplish and will also be fooled easily.

History: Amberite or Rita as her father called her was the daughter of very intelligent but not so famous scientific in a small town. He was a good man that wanted to help humankind with the advanced technology he was working on, one that would be within anyone's reach but when the red ribbon found out about him they tried to hire him to build an army of androids for them. He refused of course but they wouldn't take a no for an answer and he and Rita knew it, that's when she volunteered to let her father transform her in a gynoid. Unfortunately the red ribbon came first and bombarded his lab killing him and destroying everything of his research while Rita was still on testing phase, she was was far too powerful though to even be scratched by the attack but her memory was completely damaged, effectively making her lose her memory being the first thing she remembers getting out from under the stove with a pot full of noodle soup which she decided to take as a name from then on.

She has super human strength and resistance, albeit she has no discernible ki, but has no training at all as a fighter her current talents being limited just to household chores and cooking. Since her learning program wasn't completed yet not only she isn't aware of her full potential but she doesn't even know how to fully use her current potential either which will lead her to misuse her energy and run out of energy before she is supposed to.

Weapons/Equipment: none

Techniques:
Mind Algorithm
Immunity to hypnosis, confusion, and other mind attacks

Defense Protocol beta phase
Noodles can instantly enter in defense mode in response to any attack rendering her impervious to common attacks, and unlike martial artists she doesn't have to stand in any particular stance. Her speed greatly reduces though, as does her time reaction so she will usually stand still not to reveal this fact.

Explosive Attack Power
Although Noodles has no martial technique and her attacks are direct and straightforward she still holds great destructive power


...with any part of her body



Secondary characters/NPCs:
Par-Fei
Name: Par-Fei
Race: Fox Demon
Age: 8,993
Gender: Female
Sexuality: Pansexual

Personality: Strong willed and feisty, seductive and treacherous, Par-Fei is very much the model of a "femme fatale". She revels in mischief, whether it be simple pranks or more malicious plots, fueled by the feeling of superiority she gets from fooling or outsmarting others. She is also quite vain, always opting to take the form of the most beautiful, voluptuous woman she can imagine, even when this runs counter intuitive to what her disguise is. The best example being her current priestess disguise, dressing herself up in a very revealing and inappropriate attire despite supposedly being a chaste and pure shrine maiden. Despite all her glaring faults, she's incredibly charismatic and a great liar, allowing her to portray herself as a kind and caring person with unnerving ease.

History: Little is known about Par-Fei's past, though having lived for over eight thousand years she has plenty of experience spreading mischief and wickedness throughout the world. Of course the severity of her acts have always been tempered by the limitations of her power. Being a fox demon her power is measured by the number of tails she possesses, growing an additional one for every thousand years she lives. However while her current power isn't anything to scoff at, it isn't until growing all nine tails that a fox demon can reach their true potential, and only then can she be able to take her schemes to a much grander scale. In the meantime the treacherous canine has been pursuing other methods of increasing her power, as well as laying the ground works for her true plans once she obtains her full strength, whatever they may be. Her current guise is that of a traveling priestess, using her "holy" powers to help the people she encounters in her travels. Of course most misfortunes she helps cure tend to be created by her in the first place, but that's besides the point.

Weapons/Equipment: a variety of sealing tags and prayer beads that allow her to channel "holy" spells
Techniques:
Fox Fire
Utilizing her demonic energy Par-Fei is able to ignite her ki into mythical fire, ranging anywhere in scale from tiny candle-like wisps to sweeping torrents of flame. 

Third Eye Hex Sealing
Par-Fei places a sealing tag on the opponent's body, preventing them from channeling ki or other types of energy to that portion of their body, cutting off ki to their entire body if it is placed on their torso (the center of the body). The effects of the hex can be reversed by simply removing the tag from the afflicted area, so Par-Fei typically tries to employ this technique stealthily, placing the tag on a hard to reach spot of the opponent's body when they're not looking and then attacking before they can fully grasp what's happening.

True Form
While she typically takes the form of a beautiful woman, Par-Fei's true form is that of giant, demonic fox with 8 tails (one of every thousand years she's been alive). Assuming this form allows her to unleash her true power, increasing her raw strength and ki several fold compared to her human form.

Sounds interesting. I could see it becoming some kind of Super Sentai thing almost, where rather than Goku being the primary focus, it's more of a constant team effort than a solo act. Everyone has a skill from a different background that makes them unique from the rest of their peers. Maybe one is a fledgling Saiyan, one is a spawn of Piccolo/some random Namek if we're breaking all continuity, someone who's a cyborg or android, etc. so there's plenty of variety. Or even just someone like Bulma who can use crazy advanced gadgets to fight but doesn't know martial arts or anything and isn't particularly strong.

If I may, I would suggest having the initial backdrop be the World Martial Arts Tournament, a good place for everyone to meet up if they're all going to start out as strangers. Just like at the end of Goku's second tournament where he lost to Tienshinhan, immediately after it, a horrible tragedy strikes and great crisis looms, so after everyone starts to feel some kinship from sparring, they feel motivated to band together to combat the trouble, whatever it may be.

That's a good approach nd not too far from one idea I had.  Starting point, I think, would vary depending on how the game would be run.  Small game vs sandbox and all that.  I do like the group approach in comparison, though.  I got pretty tired of Dragonball being focused entirely on the least interested character in the series and giving absolutely no focus to anyone else.

I would be interested in this as well! As long as things like Saiyans and the Majin and what not could be incorporated in! I like the idea of Goku maybe not having come to earth but at one point Saiyans would have had to!

Seems like a good idea but to me the approach might be a bit to open! We have to establish a time line for this universe and what our version of dragon ball looks like! However that is in the fun to!

Part of the timeline I was leaving open for people's input and votes, actually.  My initial thoughts were to have it based at the start of dragonball simply for the sake of having everything new and fresh.  Everyone's starting at the bottom and through development we get on up to Z and maybe Super levels.  Given that we're writing our own story, though, it could easily take place sooner or later than that.  It could be a new timeline or new universe all together. 

I'm not so picky about the races in general but I'm wary of majin.  That said they are among my favorite races and I even have two different majin characters of my own from past RPs.  The problem comes up with trying to balance them out at lower levels of play.

I would be interested. Mathim's ideas seem pretty solid to me. As far as system/no system goes I normally lean towards no system or very 'system light.' I normally have a preference for playing Saiyan or Cyborg/Android so if those are included it suits me.

I'd vote for a system light too, and would we able to play cannon characters or completely original, since this would be starting low level I was thinking going human most probably with some thoughts already upon Ranfan or Launch.

I'd be fine with a few saiyans but I don't want over exposure.  So far it looks like only one or two people may be interested in a Saiyan so that all works out for me.  I'm definitely up for including the various types of cyborgs/androids.  My initial thoughts would have been to progress the technology as the RP went from the likes of Eighter and Tao on up to what we see later.  It doesn't have to be that way, though, since we know that the likes of 17/18 could train to get stronger rather than stagnate.  Thoughts or preferences?

I know for my own character I started them as human and progresed through the various tech levels.  But that's just me. 

I'd vote for a system light too, and would we able to play cannon characters or completely original, since this would be starting low level I was thinking going human most probably with some thoughts already upon Ranfan or Launch.

I'd be fine with freeform or system light myself.  I just wanted to gauge things and see what people were interested in.  Never knew what system may have even existed for DB. 

If things go as planned the group only starts at low levels.  So, unless you plan on switching later I'd suggest it'd be a character you're comfortable with growing too.  Not a problem for me, though.  I'd love to see Launch get the love she deserves.  Even if I would normally encourage custom over canon characters. 


I really love the interest we're getting here.  I'll hold it out until after the holidays and keep all the discussion going until then.  If anyone has any other ideas or requests or anything like that toss'em out.

I've been stalking this for a while now and I'd be more than up for doing something in the Dragon Ball setting. Humans don't get enough love.

True enough.  I love humans.  There's enough crazy Earth based stuff for plenty of variety between werewolves, vampires, the three eyed clan, demi-gods, demons, magicians, martial artists, cyborgs, Psychics, etc.  I know some aren't explicitly 'human' but in the scheme of things in DB-verse they'd all be lumped into the same basic group.

Ah, you beat me to it, I was going to mention demons like Dabura as possibilities. There are also the ogres who work for King Yama. But there are animal people like Oolong, Boss Rabbit, the wolf man, Giran, etc., and since shapeshifting is a thing, that might be someone's specialty.

This looks interesting, I'd be happy to jump in if you're still accepting more people.

On the theme of demons/supernatural characters, I was thinking of female fox demon to fill a pseudo-piccolo-esque role, i.e. starts as more of an antagonist before becoming an ally. She takes the form of a beautiful woman, but is able to transform into a giant, multiple tailed fox (which could make for a good counter measure if any of the saiyans want to go great ape and rampage around)

I like the switch up to bring in more magical characters.  It always felt like an aspect that was left alone and unexplored after a few small times in DB.  They only started bringing it back in tiny pieces with Babidi/Bibidi and a few bits in super.  I love the character pictures too.  I was hoping we'd get some magical elements involved and would've even dropped one of my own in there if no one else did.  It even forces the magical sorts to get creative to hide some of their stuff for the tournament so no one calls out "cheating". 

Since not everyone else mentioned it could I get a rough idea on what types of characters everyone might be interested in playing?  Could be more than one idea you have.  Just to kind of get a rough gauge and maybe start some planning out.  Also see if I need to fill in any roles or focus more on DMing or whatever.  If there's any arcs or plots you want to try out or try to introduce let me know here or in PM.

I was sort of leaning towards a typical fighter with a flare for dramatics, using darkness type ki control such as Shikmaru's shadow possession or Hiei's Dragon of the Darkness Flame.

That being said I haven't settled on a face claim and the like. Also are we looking at some sort of light rpg element such as learning new skills through IC training? Possibly starting with two or three low powered attacks or skills that get better as the story goes on?

If it's a small group then a lot of it can be built on trusting each other more than having a system.  Keep a lot of the training and such plot or story based rather than just trying to crunch for new techniques and stuff.  I'd say that it needs to be kept reasonable, though.  No one's starting with a hundred techniques or things like Kaioken, obviously  May even start with things like flight being an oddity like it was early in DB. 

Edit:
I do want to clarify that my earlier post is going to force people to play Earth-based beings.  We know in canon aliens visited Earth before, during, and after Dragonball.  Not just Goku.  If you can get a good backstory then it could work.

How do I set up the coded script ready for people to copy?  I have a rough layout to use.

I would say add a padding to the image to keep them from getting out of hand big, do we have a limit on where we can be from, equipment and starting techniques?

I might need more help on how to add padding.  Never really dabbled in coding like that.  As far as equipment and starting techniques it should probably remain reasonable. Things you'd expect from DragonBall rather than Z or Super.  I don't want to put a hard limit down because I know some people are going to want to make some of their own techniques and we might have to play it be ear.  I will say that it'd probably be good to keep any space ships temporarily out of commission or in need of refueling/repair if you are a recently arrived alien.  Or confiscated by local authorities.  I can't think of any real restrictions on weapons but throw it out there if you have something questionable or specific in mind.

Since you mentioned throwing out multiple character ideas, would you be open to people actually playing multiple characters? This could be particularly useful if we wanted to have like "arc villains" or characters that are only supposed to encounter the main group from time to time instead of hanging around them constantly.

I like that idea.  To some extent it passes around pseudo-DM roles to other people as needed.  Possibly help with people's personal side stories and all that.

Update:  I'd like to get people's thoughts on the sexual content and thread location for the RP.  I am personally fine with placing it anywhere and I'd like to avoid having the RP's rating be a dealbreaker for people.
