Dragon Ball: {Not yet made subtitle 1-2 words}

Dragon Ball: {Subtitle} will take place in an alternate universe devoid of a majority of the characters generally associated with the established canon. This is partially to avoid falling into the pit of the canon events and to shape them to our own liking. However, some characters from across the Dragon Ball spectrum may make appearance if the need arises, or if they are able to play an important role in the plot.

For instance, we will be making use of the Frieza Family. The reason for this choice is that it would make no sense to create another Frieza-esque character for the beginning plot line I have in mind. If it's just like Frieza, just use Frieza.

So, we have the Planet Trade Organization. The Planet Trade Organization is something of a family business. It deals in the conquering, acquisition, enslavement and/or selling of planets. The heads of this organization include the mighty King Cold and his two sons, Cooler and Frieza. The most well known of this organization however, is the sect led and ruled over by the younger son, Frieza. He is a tyrant who rules with an iron fist, leading his sect of the organization, rebranded the "Galactic Frieza Army." His forces are regarded to house the most elite warriors the galaxy has ever seen. His father is is revered as the head above Frieza, his brother somewhat unknown, forgotten even by those who know Frieza.

As the players there will be two general groups you can be apart of. A rebellion (the ol' cliche) or Frieza's army. My character will not be playing the role of the rebel leader and he will actually show up sporadically as a Frieza member if nobody else is on that side. He isn't evil, but he isn't good either. And he has his motivations.

Dying will be possible. If we never learn of the Dragon Balls, that's it, you're dead until further notice. It's also important to note that if you have a character who fights, but doesn't train, other characters who do train will over take you. It will not just be assumed that you train. You will lose fights. I will lose fights. Everyone will lose some and win some.

The first arc will focus primarily on character introduction, meetings, and not as much on combat.

Player discussion is important. If you are in the rebellion it's not very big, so lets say a it has been around somewhere between 6 months and a year. Frieza's forces, and the PTO, have obviously been around much longer.

If you make a character of a particular race, be prepared to work with me to better flesh out said race, as is often necessary for many races that appear. I see no reason for Namekians to be present, at least not in the beginning. Not for a while anyway. I already have a few planet ideas. I can discuss now, or put some in the OOC if I get a little interest.

Now, a couple important things:
  • Unless I have no choice, but to give up I am in things for the long haul. I hope you will be too.
  • I can sometimes be late. I sometimes make mistakes.
  • I will let you guys know whenever possible if I will be gone.
  • I will likely make a discord chat. I may also make a doc on Google to help me in my note taking and musing.
  • If you lose interest, wish to leave, don't want to play, let me know. I can at least write you out, or have you leave in a respectful, narratively sound way and won't have to worry about you just disappearing.
  • This is not first come first serve. I will give anybody a chance to apply and decide which characters I think will mesh or clash well enough to drive the plot forward and make for a fun game.
  • I am not without bias, but I try to be as impartial as possible when it comes to character judgment.
  • I will always try to be civil, but I will also be honest. I apologize if I seem like a dick, but I will not apologize for the honesty.
  • I'll accept somewhere between 7 and 10 players (unless given a good reason I will not budge on 10 as the cap)
  • As I said, communication will be key. I know socialization sucks, but if you aren't planning to make an effort, probably best not to join.


So, are there any takers?

@DemousYessir, you may create your own race, but be prepared to for questions and possibly an arc to go against them. I am likely to use a Saiyan Character I have. I'm trying not to have too many Saiyans though. So maybe 1 or 2 besides my character. I want everyone to have a chance to grow stronger and the like.

@Darkmoon AngelAs far as Majins go, you would need to create a compelling story as to why a majin would be roaming free, is he/she the prime or original majin of this world/timeline, and most likely you would need to nerf him/her greatly.

@rocketrobie2glad to have you.

We've got a fair amount of interest, so for the next 2-3 days I will be getting to work on the OOC. I would give you all the Character Application now, but I'm still in the middle of reworking one from a friend to better fit this game. Still don't be afraid to brainstorm and what not.

So in terms of nerfing, would a severe nerf to the regen factor and candy beam be enough? Like, make the regeneration slow and without the ability to regen from almost nothing left of the body. And as for the candy beam, how about to turn a full living thing to candy it requires a large amount of focus and energy, something like a last ditch effort to end a fight. And of course, a standard issue nerf to power. How's that sound?

@Darkmoon AngelWell, a nerf in regen could even be it takes energy or stamina because it's not something you do often. But also make it take longer from larger scale injuries. Like you won't be reforming from straight vapor immediately. But maybe in a couple days. or weeks. (In this case I would provide a time skip or something, so you'd have to leave that as a last ditch effort). Maybe the candy beam could work no problem on anything inorganic, and maybe one of the things you're working on is practicing and perfecting it's use on living beings. I'm big on giving the characters the room to grow, without them starting off too weak or boring. We can discuss this more on Discord or over PM if you want. I generally try to be amicable and cooperative. Although, if you and another both want Majin I will likely choose one or the other, unless both are great characters, then I would cap it at two. Definitely no more than two though.

We'll be starting around Ginyu Force level. Not quite as strong as Ginyu himself, but definitely not as weak as say Raditz or the Saibamen (unless that's what you prefer. Range is important after all).

@Demon Shinobi

Have you any thoughts on the Frieza Race/Frieza Clan/Frost Demon species? I'd like to play one if possible, maybe put them on Frieza's side but with an agenda of their own or some such. Would be a wonderful opportunity to see some politics at work among the Planet Trade Organization.

@Darkmoon AngelSweetness.

@DoubleWell, I am using the prime family in charge and I'm sure at least one of them keeps an eye out or out for other members of the race. How they act can either raise or lower their expectation. I'd be curious to see what you come up with if nothing else. And of course, as with everything else I'd be more than willing to discuss. over discord or PM. Discord primarily because of the guild being so tempermental as of late.



So yeah, any of you can message me. I'll likely make a discord at the same time I make the OOC. Which shouldn't take more than another day or two.

I would be interested in this.

@Darkmoon Angel I actually wanted to be a Majin as well, but I think that might be good. A good way to nerf that particular race could be to say that something split them in two, creating a "clone," and drastically lowering the power of both.
