It has been generations since the adventures of Goku and the Z fighters, their names simply referred to as heroes. Since their time others have stepped up in their place to protect Earth and the rest of the universe. For the last fifty years the world has felt total bliss but darkness stirs...longing for freedom...

Welcome! Let me start out by saying that while the RP is called Dragon Ball, it is far closer in taste and general flavour to Z and Super. The universe is wide open and Earth is now inhabited by a mixture of races beyond that of just human. As the brief paragraph above says, things have been peaceful and all of the character you loved or loved to hate have long since died of old age. Peace has taken over the world but that hasn't stopped people from training and preparing for any potential threats.

General Stuff

This RP is going to be entirely PvE in the sense that it'll avoid having PvP as a compulsory part of the story. The idea will be that there will be enough enemies for everyone to get involved rather than having everyone trying to swarm on one big bad guy. There will be times that there will be a "big bad guy" to fight but things will be done to ensure everyone plays a key role in the story. That said, there is no reason two people can't have a sparring session if they so wish. Just be polite, patient and respectful of each others characters.

Ultimately this is a world I want to build with people so feel free to add your input. It's not just about me telling you all what will happen, you need to make your own decisions and help craft the story. I want everyone to get a chance to be the "hero" and so this is just the first saga of what I hope will be many.

Rules

Standard forum rules apply and just as a general practise, dont be a dick. In terms of disputes as GM I have last say on those matters and if people go to far, I have no issue in getting mods involved. However, don't feel like you can't speak your mind if you think something isn't working well or if you have ideas.

In terms of fighting, as it is primarily against NPC's you'll pretty much have free reign to do as you wish in combat, particularly against minions. However with "bosses" I expect close fights and in some instances I will tell you that you may lose. In terms of boss, when it comes to smaller or multiple bosses (like the Ginyu Force, 17/18 etc) i'd rather leave it to you guys to RP those battles once introduced. However when it comes to single big bads (like Frieza, Cell etc) i'll RP their entire interactions with people.

This RP will not use power levels.


CS

Below is a basic CS (the post below contains an example CS). Feel free to make it look as pretty as you want. I will be looking for only a small-ish group(dont really want any more than 5 or 6) so when the OOC is up I will be setting a time limit of CS' and holding off accepting/rejecting until that date.

Name: (Simple)
Age: (18+ only please)
Gender: (Simple)
Race: (Ideally want majority of characters to be human seeing as it's based on Earth, but I will listen to other options including custom)
Appearance: (Pictures or descriptions are fine but needs to be anime)
Personality: (What is your character like to deal with)
Ki Colour: (What colour energy does your character have)

Stats
(Distribute 20 points into the below stats. They have no real input other than just providing some idea about what a character may be better at)
Strength: (Physical attacks)
Ki: (Energy attacks)
Endurance: (Ability to take damage)
Speed: (How fast they are)

Abilities:
(This can be racial abilities e.g. Saiyan Zenkai Boost or something you want to create yourself. Can have a total of 2, examples below.)
β€’ Expandable Limbs - Due to the nature of X's biology he can stretch out his limbs to hit an opponent from distance. Can't do it over ten metres.
β€’ Pre-Hensile Tail - Has a tail which can be used as an extra limb to inflict damage and restrain opponents.

Transformations: (These are a big part of DBZ and DBS but characters will not start with them, so just put none. However, at the end of each saga a character gains one transformation no matter what their race is).

Techniques: (Four trademark moves that your character has. They don't all need to be offensive in nature either. Will allow people to add more as we progress. Please label whether they are offensive, defensive or utility in nature.)
β€’
β€’
β€’
β€’

Ultimate Technique: (Your characters ultimate offensive move when they just need to roll the dice)

History: (Background of your character)

Other: (Theme music, quotes...whatever else is relevant goes here)



Feel free to ask any questions, post CS's or whatever. I'm just gauging interest right now so things could change.

@CaptainSully I'm interested in taking part in this. Gotta love a good nostalgia RP.

I'll probably make a character who, like yours, is more focused on martial arts than ki beams; I like the idea of a character who's more skilled than he is powerful.

I would be interested in joining. How would you feel about a character based on the kind of magic we see in the shows rather than a ki-using martial artist? It isn’t explored that heavily in DBZ, only showing up in characters like Baba, Dabura, and Babidi, but I think that we can flesh it out a bit more. It could be really interesting.

@Olive Fontaine I guess my only concern with a magic user is that most of the time they don’t have any sort of martial prowess. That said, if you want to say they utilise magic instead of Ki then that’s fine I guess. Just replace the Ki stat with Magic.

But before you do start cracking on with a full CS, what sort of abilities/techniques would you be looking at with the character?

@King Cosmos feel free to do whatever you want

@CaptainSully

Dabura certainly did, though of course he was using both ki and magic. Frieza also did some pseudo-magic stuff when he was using telekinesis to attack with an intersecting grid of hundreds of rocks.

Come to think of it - I’m not sure Frieza himself really had any martial prowess to speak of (he couldn’t detect ki); he was just so powerful and fast that it didn’t matter.

I haven’t fully decided how the character will play yet, I’ll have to look back into the series for some inspiration. Probably some kind of defensive magic will be necessary to be able to survive a hit. Possibly something like 17s forcefields or a kind of magically constructed armor. I’m still considering what magical attacks would be like in a DBZ fight scenario.

@Olive Fontaine I’ll be honest, the more I think about it the more I’m not really a fan of the idea. While there are examples of magic, they are so few and far between, plus how do you scale it versus Ki energy?

If you can convince me with a good enough idea then I’ll allow it but it’ll need to be something special.

Fair enough - it probably would be a bit wonky if we weren’t careful. I might still submit an app with a martial character depending on how the game looks.

Hm. Think a robot character would work? One that is basically just a nanobot swarm in essence but that swarm likes to take teh shape of a robot?

Yo @CaptainSully I dunno if you've already made the official thread but I'm interested. Is a Saiyan-blood race available? So capable of saiyan whatnot but mostly human?

@Archmage MC the idea of a robot works for me but I’d rather it be a standard robot rather than a nanobot swarm if I’m being totally honest.

@IAmKnight nah still in interest check buddy Saiyan’s are available but just so you know almost all races will be able to attain the same sort of power up transformations as Saiyans. Obviously not super Saiyan but something that will allow them to be able to fairly compete if needed.

@Weird Tales that’d be perfectly fine buddy.

Well, the abilities are meant to be based on your characters race more than anything specific to them. So it's more a question of what sort of abilities a human would have in this setting; they don't really seem to have anything special like the other races do.

I'd suggest something like 'fast growth' so that they make up for their lack of natural advantages by increasing their power levels faster than others, but that'll leave humans pretty imbalanced further down the line.

Maybe they make up for lack of power by being better at martial arts? Like they are able to learn completely physical techniques faster than other races?

@King Cosmos@Duthguy

Apologies my wording is incorrect. It doesn’t have to be racial specific but obviously can’t have a human with zenkai unless it’s called something else for example.

Power levels are irrelevant anyway so something like zenkai wouldn’t matter.

@King Cosmos @CaptainSully Well learning martial arts faster works with the backstory of his uncle giving up on teaching Reo due to his issues with ki, though it has to be said the uncle isn't exactly world's greatest teacher. It's similar to All Might and Deku, his uncle never had issues leaning how to use his ki on top of simply not knowing how to explain himself all too well. If Reo had trained under his mother, who is weaker than his uncle, he would have learned more.

@King Cosmos@Duthguy Maybe something like this:

Keen Eye: Reo has a natural aptitude for martial arts and the skills that they involve. Whether it be from practise or simply observation, he learns new moves in half the time of even the most skilled martial artists - Reo starts with one additional technique and can create an additional one at the end of each saga.

The gist will be that characters evolve over time so like gaining a transformation at the end of a saga, they will also gain an additional technique or two (still deciding on this).

@CaptainSully I could make a nanobot swarm pretty balanced. (I know your concern.) Although what I'm really going for is... Did you ever watch My Life as a Teenage Robot? Something like that would mesh very well in DBZ and give me the main thing I'd like to play with, weapon transformations and all that.
